While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
[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.

There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
