The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
We’re Closing a Bunch of Legacy Forums on XDA
So that we can best moderate forums of newer devices, XDA is soon going to close (yes, close) a handful of old, legacy forums. This will happen on September 5, 2012. While these forums will be closed for posting, they will still be completely accessible in a read-only state.
Our criteria for closing forums was post activity: All of the forums in the below list have seen fewer than 8 posts in the past 30 days. And even with such a low level of post activity, these legacy forums attract a fair amount of spam. By closing them, we allow our moderators to focus on the many forums on XDA that are bustling with activity, instead of having to worry about cleaning spam in old forums to which very few still contribute.

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
