Quotes of the Week #1

Every XDA member has it’s own place and function within the community. Some create apps, others design themes. But a large portion of XDA members are here for discussion and sharing opinions – and that’s an aspect which is actually missing in the smartphone blogging world nowadays.

We are breaking that habit by introducing a new series of small articles, in which your voice can be heard, your opinion can be told. Every week, we will gather four quotes from the forums. They will all have something to do with the newest smartphone news and development.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
