The Next Big [Case] and New Storefront
One of the most popular forums on XDA as of late is the Samsung Galaxy S4 and its US carrier variants (T-Mobile, Sprint and their bootloader-locked siblings on AT&T and Verizon). This is with good reason, as the device boasts top-of-the-line specs as well as pretty heavy backing from a marketing machine around the world. What is of great benefit to you, the user community, is that accessories (like cases) are interchangeable across the variants. And that’s where our partner CruzerLite comes in.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, not only have you missed some great seasons of Doctor Who and The Big Bang Theory, but you’ve probably missed the emergence of CruzerLite as one of the premier suppliers for Android-related merchandise. Back in December of last year we embarked on a great partnership with them to make XDA-branded cases and apparel, with the express desire that we not make anything from the sales, instead passing on the savings to you – the community.
That continues with the recent addition of the Galaxy S4 to the lineup of molded-case offerings from CruzerLite in black, green, and smoke. Made of scratch-resistant material, these fit like a glove and protect your precious device from all manners of perils as a result of your travels. And while you may think this type of case would cost you a pretty penny, it can be yours for $14 plus flat rate shipping of $4. That’s an extraordinary deal for keeping your expensive device in pristine condition.
But CruzerLite hasn’t stopped there. They recently unveiled our own storefront found at store.xda-developers.com, making it simple for you to find all of the XDA-related merchandise you desire all in one place. So make sure you visit the storefront and show your support for XDA and CruzerLite.

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?
