New to xda-developers? Check This Out!

Our beloved forum has grown a lot over the years thanks to the efforts of all of our members, moderators, administrators, and everyone involved. From time to time, our site undergoes changes, which may enhance the functionality of our site, but that are less than clear to people coming in for the first time. With this idea in mind, XDA member TRusselo has put together a beautiful guide with everything that the new members need to know once they sign up in the forum. The guide has been fitted with screenshots descriptions and everything that there is to know and do on xda-developers. Moreover, it covers Compact and Full Views, the Portal, XDA TV Youtube channel, and so much more.

If you are coming in here for the first time, welcome. Now, be sure that you take a look at this quick start guide and enjoy xda-developers in the way it has always been meant to be enjoyed.

I have created an 8 part guide to help everyone (new members mostly) get the best out of our site!

This is in partial follow up to my previous post on being a new member and trying to navigate the site. It was a couple weeks before I understood all the different areas of information on this site!

Remember that new members (under 8 posts) cant post in Development forums or create a signature or edit their posts! Only Mods can Delete! and rarely do! be careful what you say! Though useless threads are always closed and cant be edited!

Enjoy! I hope this helps!

You can find more information in the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
