Turn Your Gray/Blue One S into a Black One S

When the HTC One S was first released, it came in a sleek gray and blue color scheme. A black variant also appeared. And while the gray and blue variant is pretty sleek, some users prefer the black version. However, not all wish to buy a new phone just to update their aesthetics. There is now a way to acquire the looks of the other.

XDA Recognized Developer and Contributor Zarboz released a hardware mod tutorial that helps users deconstruct the One S and put it back together. That’s with shiny new black hardware. The process is, as one would expect, pretty complicated, and requires a good number of tools. However, Zarboz is quite helpful with that. Aside from a complete tools list, another list was also provided that details the parts that need to be replaced.

Essentially, it’s a disassemble guide except when you reassemble the One S, you’ll put the black One S parts back on it. For those who enjoy disassembling things, this will be delightful. However, it is a dangerous process that could irreparably damage the One S. Proceed at your own risk.

For the full, picture-laden tutorial, check out the original thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
