This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

Massive Xposed Module Collection
You’ve most likely already heard about XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s incredibly versatile Xposed Framework. We’ve talked about it quite a few times here on the XDA Portal, starting with a primer on its versatility and power and continuing to quite a few articles covering the plethora of modifications that the framework enables.
With the ease of use and added safety that the framework enables, it’s no wonder that the framework is so popular. However, because of the extremely large number of modules available, it’s sometimes a bit difficult to find exactly the ones you want. Wouldn’t it be great if someone created a compilation thread of some of the various tweaks that the modification enables? Well, somebody has, and that’s Senior Member cities516.
Cities516’s list covers dozens upon dozens of Xposed module modifications, all categorized by supported platform, as well as modification category. The list begins hierarchically with ROM compatibility (either All ROMs, AOSP-based, Sense-based, TouchWiz-based, or Xperia-based). Within each category, the modules are listed based on modification type. For example, in the All ROMs category, Security modules are lumped together, as well as various other categories of modifications.
While this list naturally cannot possibly contain every single Xposed module in existence, it more than likely has quite a few modifications that may be of interest to you. To get started, head over to the compilation thread and download to your heart’s content. The list is being constantly updated with new and exciting modules, so be sure to check back frequently!

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
