Thank You to Our Recent Contest Winners and Sponsors!

Some may say that we here at XDA like to celebrate from time to time. And why wouldn’t we? After all, thanks to the hard work from the many talented developers who call this little place on the web home, we’re able to do much more with our mobile devices than their manufacturers ever intended.

How exactly do we celebrate? Often, it’s through various fun contests. So at this time, we’d like to thank both our contest entrants and our supporters who have given us the goods that we then shared with you.

Let’s start with our most recent contest, which was in honor of reaching 100,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel. This contest was sponsored by XDA itself. While the winners of the two Nexus 7 tablets have not yet returned our messages, they are Niko Novak and Almir Vuk. So if either of you are reading this, please send a PM to yours truly or XDA TV Admin JimmyMcGee so we can send you your tablets.

Next up is our Valentine’s Day contest, which was sponsored by SolidRun. This RD-exclusive contest asked entrants to come up with fun and exciting development projects in order to get a chance to win a CuBox unit from SolidRun. The winners for this contest were Dexter93, regaw_leinad, and netham45. Those who are are interested in obtaining their own CuBox unit at a discount can do so by visiting this link and using the following coupon code for a $10 discount: XDASE10-001

Finally, we held a contest back on Thanksgiving asking users to give thanks to their favorite developers. This contest was sponsored by Poweramp (two Nexus 7 tablets) and Meizu (Meizu MX Quad-Core Phone). Rather than the initial two winners, this contest ended up having three winners: Quarx, ::indie::, and srijithn (Meizu MX Quad). Those interested in giving Poweramp a try can do so by visiting their website and Google Play listing. Similarly, those interested in the MX should check out our review.

Thanks to all who entered and to those who made these contests possible. We look forward to having many more contests in the future!

Make Your Network Smart – XDA Xposed Tuesday

We rave about the features and abilities of our smartphones. However, in order for the device to be so smart, there is a lot of items running in the background.

In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed...
