Improve your HD2’s Keyboard
Having a 4.3″ touchscreen on your phone can come at a cost, and usually, that cost is the lack of a hardware keyboard. While this isn’t a problem for all of us, serial texters and word-processor addicts definitely suffer from being forced to use an on-screen keyboard like that found on the HTC HD2.
Although the HD2 features capacitive technology like the iPhone, many claim that the latter has a far superior typing experience. According to XDA member boogiecornejo, this is all due to ineffective key spacing on the HD2, and the developer has created an unique solution to prove this.
By editing the virtual position of every single key, boogiecornejo has succeeded where HTC seemingly failed, in creating an almost lag-free keyboard, which is highly responsive to user input. User comments are supporting the claims – some are reporting 95% accuracy since changing and many are now reliant upon the modification when using their devices.
Boogiecornejo’s modification uses Lycox‘s GTX keyboard skin. The necessary files are available in the modification thread.

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
