Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
We’re Giving Away 25 Lepow Moonstone 6000 Power Banks
You may recall that about a month ago, we took an in depth look at the Lepow Moonstone 6000 mAh power bank. For those in need of a refresher, the curvaceous Moonstone 6000 not only featured a slim profile and stylish design, but it also backed this up with great performance. Now, we’d like to give away 25 of these to members of the XDA community. Want to win one for yourself? Good. Read on to learn how to get one of your own.
In order to win one of 25 Lepow Moonstone 6000 power banks, we want you to share your funniest experience running out of juice when on the go. Got a funny story about getting lost due to running out of power on your phone/GPS? Let us know in the comments below! All that we ask is that it makes us laugh.
You can enter from now until exactly three days from now. Once your entries have been submitted, winners will be chosen at random with the following breakdown: 20 units will be given to Recognized Developers, Contributors, and Themers. The remaining 5 will then be given to standard users. Why the bias towards Recognized users, you ask? Well, they’re the main reason we all come back to XDA every day, and it makes sense for us to reward them.
Now, here come the technicalities. First off, this contest is open exclusively to members of the XDA community who have been registered for at least one month. Next, due to shipping expenses and a relatively low item price, it doesn’t make sense to ship these units abroad. Thus, this contest is open only to those with shipping addresses in the continental US. Due to previous contest abuses, we will be selecting the winners randomly. Finally, only one entry is permitted per user.
To make things easier for us, please post your XDA title and a link to your user page along with your entry. Good luck, and may the best stories win!

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
