In Response to The Verge: Why We “Fretted” About the Note 7’s Performance

Last week, we published an article documenting some of the experiences we’ve had with the Galaxy Note 7, sourced from four different units from different XDA members. Shortly after our article went live, The Verge had a somewhat dismissive say in the matter. We were surprised by the spread of our article. In retrospect, the fact...

XDA Ad-Free: Your Questions Answered

This spring we announced XDA Ad-Free, which lets you remove all the sucky ads from XDA if you pay a little. Not only does ad-free give you a higher density of content, but the site becomes faster without ads. Over the past few months, we’ve received a lot of questions relating to ads, the pricing of ad-free,...

[Giveaway] 2 Months of Android File Host Premium to Everyone + 10 Swag Bags!

Developers, Developers, Developers. We love our developers here at XDA. We're maybe not as outwardly-loud through text as Mr. Ballmer was in the linked clip, but without developers there wouldn't even be an XDA-Developers.

File Hosting and You: An Inside Look at Android File Host

There are many things we take for granted in this world. When it comes to the Internet, we expect services to be made available to us cheap (or even free), fast, and convenient.

[DAY1] Introducing the XDA Labphone — Smooth, Sleek, and Ready to Flash

We’ve been hard at work at the XDA HQ for close to two years, with only one goal -- to answer a fundamental question. That question is, “Just how powerful can Android get?” After years of development, and countless bricked devices, we are ready to take the wraps off XDA’s biggest project yet: the XDA Labphone,...

In Loving Memory of TonyStark

XDA-Developers has, over the years, grown to be a lot more than just a forum for people to discuss phones. We have grown in terms of content, membership, and staff. This last point is the one I will be touching upon today. Our staff is a very tightly knit core of approximately 100 moderators and administrators....

Create Your Own Forum on XDA

Historically, adding a forum on XDA has been decided by having our intern spin around in an office chair, blindfolded, throwing darts at a board. Actually, we add forums based on which devices we think will have strong community support. We don't get it right 100% of the time, but a lot of the time, just...

Marshmallow Is What Lollipop Should Have Been, but XDA Made Lollipop Better

It’s been around two weeks since I began testing the Nexus 5X for an upcoming review, and while writing the section on software, I couldn’t help but feel that it wouldn’t be able to cover some of the more subjective thoughts I have on Marshmallow. Therefore, I want to let those thoughts out in an editorial,...
