The XDA Marketplace is Closing, for Now

Over the years, many of you have benefited from using the XDA Marketplace (either in our Wanting to Buy or Wanting to Sell forums) to buy/sell/trade devices. However, due to malicious individuals using the Marketplace to scam other XDA users despite our best efforts to keep this from happening, we have decided to close the Marketplace. Doing so will free up our moderators to more effectively patrol non-Marketplace forums on XDA.

We are considering the possibility of launching a vastly better non-forum-based trading system on XDA for those that want to fairly exchange, buy, and sell devices with other XDA members. Keep an eye on the Portal to learn more in the coming months.

Effective today, no new threads can be made there, and on 30 November, the Marketplace will be closed and be entered into a read-only state. The Member-Found Deals and Job Board forums will remain open, both technically a part of Marketplace.

Again, thanks for using the Marketplace over the years, and we apologize for the inconvenience that its closure might have caused.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
