Forums Added for the Nvidia Shield Tablet and Sharp Aquos Crystal

Just a few days ago, we took an in depth look at the Nvidia Shield Tablet and liked what we saw. Unfortunately, something was missing at the time, but we’ve gone ahead and rectified this. I am of course talking about a home forum here on XDA. Along for the ride, we’ve also added a forum for another new device, the Sharp Aquos Crystal.

First up is the Nvidia Shield Tablet. As you undoubtedly gathered from our full review, the Shield Tablet is a great device for those looking for a gaming-friendly tablet that offers stylus functionality and a nice, crisp screen. Part of this is undoubtedly due to the beefy hardware specifications, which include an Nvidia Tegra K1 processor running at 2.2 GHz, an 8-inch 1920×1200 display, and DirectStylus 2 functionality.

Next up is the Sharp Aquos Crystal. The Aquos Crystal is most notable for its virtually frameless LCD screen. Living up to their tagline of “take the edge off,” this device features only one noticeable bezel, and it is undoubtedly among the sleekest phones available. Unfortunately, hardware specs aren’t quite inline with the device’s aesthetitcs, consisting of a 1.2 GHz qud-core Snapdragon 400, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal storage. However, those looking for a stylish device that offers midrange performance may have found their perfect device.

Is the Shield Tablet or Aquos Crystal in your future? Let us know in the comments below and don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
