What a Year–XDA Portal Turns Two!

You may not be aware, but the XDA Portal—our little news outlet—is celebrating its second birthday! From the start, the main objective of the Portal has been to serve as a virtual window into the endless supply of development here at XDA.

Our first article was posted on January 16th, 2010; and since then, we’ve been dedicated to covering content that ranges from development works, various guides and tutorials, and interviews with Recognized Developers.

Under the leadership of our new Portal Administrator and Editor-in-Chief Will Verduzco, we will be sure to keep sight of our focus of making the Portal your “insider guide” to XDA. The rest of our team consists of the following writers: Egzthunder1, ElCondor, mic_888, jasecloud4, PoorCollegeGuy, Bentenrai, conantroutmanHQRaja, ben_duder, azrienochsamcaplat, and of course, myself. You can contact any of us if you have any tips or article suggestions. And if you have any suggestions for any particular type of content you would like to see, please send that over to Will.

Seemingly overnight, we went from 1.3 million monthly page views in February 2010 to 4.9 million this past January. In this time, we have managed to rack up more than 4,700 published articles! Going forward, we wish to raise these numbers by doing our best to provide you with the content you want to see. To all our supporters around the globe, thank you for giving us a reason to write and for making the XDA-Developers Portal the place it is today.

Here’s to a great third year! Cheers!

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...

The OnePlus 2 & The Year of Smartphone Compromises

We are very close to entering the last third of 2015, and we have now seen many of the biggest flagship lines issue their latest iterations.

But for the most part, the awe has vanished.   There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
