We Want YOU for XDA TV! Last Day!

Update: the deadline for your audition is today! Don’t miss out.

We’re launching a new project at XDA called XDA TV. It will feature a variety of short periodic “shows” created by members of the XDA community. Shows can have any theme:

  • ways to breathe new life into a Windows Mobile device
  • a chronicle of modifications made to a new Android phone
  • reviews of new ROMs for the HD2 (or any device)
  • app reviews
  • app development discussion/tutorials
  • ROM development discussion/tutorials
  • Anything you can think of!

The XDA forums represent a gigantic world of various devices, personalities, applications and more. The goal of the XDA portal has always been to make it easier for users to discover cool and interesting stuff in the forums. Video is the obvious next step.

We’re looking for up to five XDA TV personalities. Those chosen will enjoy benefits like having their own page on tv.xda-developers.com (still in development), a special badge next to their name in the XDA forums that says “I’m on XDA TV”, and plenty of exposure through XDA’s official YouTube channel (also still in development). For now, fame is all we’re offering– please only apply if you are ok making a weekly/periodic show (3 – 8 minutes in length) on a volunteer basis.

If you’re interested in trying out to be an XDA TV personality, please make a short (2 minutes or less) rehearsal video, upload it to YouTube, and send it to svetius through a PM (subject “XDA TV”). Your rehearsal video should give us a sample of the type of content you’ll include in your weekly show. From these videos we’ll choose some of the best and post a poll so XDA members can vote on who they want to see more of!

Deadline for audition video is 11/16/10 Update: now extended until 11/26!! Good luck!

What Do You Think About Fingerprint Scanners?

More and more phones are featuring fingerprint scanners, and with many promising developments and it being natively supported on Android M, we can soon expect to see them on smartphones everywhere. If done right, it is a useful feature that allows for quick unlocking and authorization.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
