The XDA Portal Now Uses Disqus Comments!
We’re excited to announce that we’ve moved all comments on the XDA Portal to the Disqus commenting system. For those unfamiliar, Disqus has become *the* standard in commenting with its flexibility, great support, and speed. It works with your Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus login, and we’ve also integrated it with the XDA user database so that you can leave a comment with your XDA username. In fact, if you’re already logged in in the forums, you’re already logged into the comments, and even your avatar carries over. Enjoy!
