Forums Added for the Note 4, Note Edge, Xperia Z3, Smartwatch 3, and More!

As we mentioned in our IFA 2014 roundup, many new and exciting devices were just released earlier today. We have devices from Samsung, Sony, and Asus. And as always, we’ve given these new devices a place here on our forums to help you decide which is the right device for you and what to do with it once you get it.

First up, we have the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4. We all knew it was coming, and now it’s finally here. Featuring a 2.7 GHz Quad-Core processor or 1.9 GHz Octa-Core processor depending on location, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and 2560×1440 display, the Note 4 is every bit the powerhouse we expected. In addition to the Note 4, Samsung also released the 5.6″ Galaxy Note Edge with a very unique, curved screen that can serve as a notification ticker once it gains developer support. Lastly from Samsung, we also created a new forum for the Samsung Gear VR.

In addition to Samsung’s unveilings, we had quite a showing from Sony, including the new flagship Sony Xperia Z3Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. And if you’re a fan of Android Wear-based smartwatches, you should also keep your eye out for the Sony Smartwatch 3. Finally, Asus also made a splash with the new ASUS ZenWatch.

So which of these devices are you looking at? Let us know in the comments below. Don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums to get in on the discussions, and as always, let’s hope for a fast and painless journey towards root and third party development for all of these new devices!

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
