Think YOU Love XDA? Look at This Amazing HD2!

Pretty much everyone who drops by this behemoth of a site can find something they like… But what do you do if you really, really like XDA? Perhaps this is a question best answered by forum member facdemol, who has shown his XDAddiction in a rather creative way.

I had some spare time and thought of making something i wanted to do for some time ago. It’s my first time doing this (although i’m familiar with the process since i use it for PCB making) but i thought i should give it a try. And in great recognition of what the XDA community enabled us – the users – to do with our phones, i wanted to brand my phone’s battery cover with the XDA logo next to the andoid logo, the thing (os) that xda developers made possible to us. Ah and in the xda spirit, i thought it would be kind of cool to handcraft the design of that battery cover.
Here’s the story of today’s afternoon for me 
…and possibly a guide for you, daring folks around there who just happen to have a spare scratched and ugly looking battery cover like i did 

Keeping true to the ethos of XDA, the highly skilled modder has even given step-by-step instructions (and plenty of pictures) on how to attempt this on your own battery cover. Continue on to the modification thread to learn how to do it yourself!

[Thanks for the tip, CTM!]

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
