Forums Added for the US HTC One Variants, HTC First, and Nvidia Project Shield

During the past week, we’ve created several new forums for exciting new mobile devices. Not too long ago, we took a look at the HTC One at its launch event in New York City. We then promptly put it through its paces with a round of benchmarks. After we found it to be a solid performer, we then decided to give it a home in our forum. Now, its US variants can also share in the joy with forums of their own.

Despite opening ourselves up to various cheesy puns based on the device’s name, we also decided to create forums for the HTC First. HTC’s Facebook-friendly device is interesting not only because it is the First device to feature Facebook Home, but also because it ships with a relatively untainted version of Jelly Bean—something we haven’t seen from HTC since the G2. Finally, we’re also adding Nvidia’s new gaming platform, Project Shield. While not quite a phone or a tablet, this Tegra 4- and Jelly Bean-powered device aims to take the mobile gaming market in Q2 2013.

Those looking to get in on the action can do so by visiting the new forums below:

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
