Forums Added for the Raspberry Pi, LG Optimus G, HTC One VX, and HTC Desire X!
Last week, we added forums for a couple of devices that stood out in their own unique way. These were, of course, the Intel-powered RAZR i and the relatively diminutive Galaxy S III Mini. This week, we have a few new forums to add as well.
To start things off, we have the Raspberry Pi due to popular demand. While not exactly a “mobile device,” the device features an architecture extremely similar to typical smartphone hardware. Furthermore, the excellent price and high degree of hackability only serve to sweeten the overall package and make it a must-have for any gadget lover.
Next, we have the LG’s late 2012 flagship phone, the Optimus G. Powered by the top-of-the-line quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the device will be one of the speediest devices at launch. The category-leading processor is backed by 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of ROM, a 4.7″ “True HD-IPS+” panel, LTE connectivity, a 2100 mAh battery, and an 8 or 13 MP camera (depending on region). The device ships with Ice Cream Sandwich, but is slated to receive an update to Jelly Bean.
Leading the HTC pack, we have the One VX. The device comes in as the successor to the popular mid-range One V. Powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, it is also no slouch. The device also features 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM, a 1810 mAh battery, and LTE connectivity. The device features a Sense 4-laden build of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, and comes with a 4.5″ qHD Super LCD2 screen.
Finally, we have the Desire X. Looking to cater to value-conscious users, the HTC Desire X is an affordable cousin to the One series. Powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (albeit based on the ARM Cortex A5, rather than Qualcomm Krait) and packing 768 MB of RAM, the Desire X doesn’t quite pack the same punch as its flagship brethren. That said, it offers more than adequate performance for those who don’t need the highest benchmark scores or simply prefer a smaller device.

We've received mixed reports about switching to ART but it seems that the majority of users who make the jump see some type of improvement. But just how noticeable is this improvement in app performance? Let us know if switching to ART has brought noticeable changes to your device's performance.
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,...
