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? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
Nokia Lumia 800, Motorola Atrix 2, and Motorola Droid Razr Forums Added
Our not-so-little-anymore family keeps growing, and at a fast pace, I might add. We have added 3 new forums to our beloved xda-developers: Nokia Lumia 800, Motorola Atrix 2, and Motorola Droid Razr. The latter was added this past weekend, but it is still worth mentioning it as it is the first device that will be released with the infamous “Razr” branding on it since its flip phone counter part. This device is rumored to be loaded with ICS as Moto is now “partnered” with Google, but the official specs claim that it will come with Gingerbread. Other outstanding specs from this device are its ridiculously thin profile of 7.1 mm, 4.3 in Super AMOLED screen, and dual core 1.2 GHz OMAP processor. It also weights a mere 126 gr with the battery on, just as much as the ham and turkey that you would get in a sub at Subway (and probably just as thin when stacked).
The second device is the Atrix 2, which as its name rightfully implies, is the continuation of the not-so successful-yet-revolutionary Atrix, which came with a laptop as a docking station. The device is not that much different from its predecessor but we are trying to keep up with the times. Last but not least, we say “welcome” to Nokia into our forums. As you may have heard, Nokia finally gave up and decided to partner up with Microsoft in attempts to try and promote the WP7 platform in this iOS/Android dominated market. The basic difference with other devices running WP7 out there is that this one has a much beefier processor, clocking at 1.4 GHz, which still is not the highest clock speed (Titan clocks at 1.5 GHz). Yet, it should provide enough oomph for the money.
Well, if you have any of these, please share your success/horror stories with the rest of our members as well as the tips, tricks, and hacks that you may find along the way.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? 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?
