New XDA Feature Adds QR Codes to All Attachments

Today is going to be a fantastic day, I can tell. Especially with this announcement of quite a huge feature which I am certain will revolutionise the way in which we download content from mobile-modification sites as a whole.

I don’t want to seem pompous, but this was my idea. If you give me a minute, I’m going to go and find my “smug” hat and wear it for the entirety of the period that this feature is exploding to be extremely popular.

What does this mean for the download system on XDA? From now on, whenever you upload an attachment onto a thread, a QR Code will be automatically generated as well as the usual file link.

Why did I think of this? Many times that I wanted to download a ‘cool’ file from a thread, I noticed a trend in the way that I, and others, approached the download process. If a QR Code was available, they would usually do it that way without any moaning or grumbling. If a QR was not available, the common reaction was to ‘just not bother’.

All joking aside, I am very proud to have my idea on the forums of XDA and I am really excited to hear how easy and quick this makes it for users to get files straight to their phones as opposed to connecting by USB and transferring the files.

And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
