[Mod] HTC Red Angel

Yet another version of an older device has emerged from the depths of the abyss. In this case, xda member tebaomang has come up with a mod for the Blue Angel. This newly redesigned version does not require any painting skills since he uses a different method for skinning the device’s outer case. And in case you are wondering, the mod is not just skin deep, but he is also working on a new look for the UI to reflect the Blue Angel (or should I say Red Angel)’s newly found personality.

Well, I do not know how to paint and painting is quite expensive to me, so i covered my Blue Angel with a layer of color paper (some kind of paper, I do not know what it is called in English).

Not really as perfect as painting but it is still good and cheap (just a little bit more than $1 in my country if you have to pay someone to do it for you) and fast (around 5 minutes or less).

For more details continue on to the modification thread.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
