Skyrocket Forums Added

A tad late but always worth pointing out if you are not the kind of people who scroll all the way to the end of the forum’s list. Late last week, we decided that the AT&T SGS 2 variant known as the Skyrocket was different enough from the original AT&T SGS2 that rather than having it as a separate sub-section, it would have its own forum. The differences go all the way down to the core of the device as the original SGS2 sports an Exynos 1.2 GHz dual core processor, whereas the Skyrocket is loaded with a 1.5 GHz dual score Snapdragon. On top of that, it boasts a larger screen at 4.5 inches, which makes it match its T-Mobile brother, the Hercules and it comes loaded with Android 2.3.5, which is still not the latest but it is closer than 2.3.4 is. Last but not least, the device is loaded with 4G capabilities, so now you can take advantage of AT&T’s high speed LTE data. The device keeps the beauty of the original SGS2 and basically adds more power to it.

If you already have one or are thinking about getting one, check out some of the most recent developments, which we will talk about shortly.

You can find the Skyrocket’s home on xda right here.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
