Search XDA With DuckDuckGo

You are all probably well aware that the search on our beloved forums is a little less than up to par. Normally, it takes quite a while to get through anything and in many occasions we end up empty handed. Let alone the fact that the search time outs were becoming a nuisance (that is gone now). If you are yearning for something different, XDA moderator 12aon has pointed us to a search engine called DuckDuckGo, which basically has the option to search on a single site as opposed to throughout the web (like Google or Yahoo!). I know what you are thinking: “but I can filter the results in google as well and tell it to search only on xda”. True, but not everyone knows how to do this. DDG will, rather nicely and easily, let you choose from hundreds of sites from a scroll down list. No commands required!

Intrigued? Take it for a test drive and let us know how you liked it?

You can find the search engine in this link! Happy searching!

Thanks 12aon for the tip!!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
