Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

White Evo with Black Battery Door Spotted at XDA
Ok, well strictly speaking this is a mod, but a pretty easy one! Changing the look of a stock Evo has been a popular subject in the forums, and XDA forum member stanglifemike decided to change the look of his.
Originally the white version of the Evo, the XDA member simply got hold of a black battery door and swapped out the original. The Android device looks pretty neat with it’s now two tone sporty look although some members have joked it looks like an Oreo, or as one member put it: an ‘OrEVO’…..(*groan*)
If you’re worried about having to fork out for a battery cover, some members have reported that if you ask very nicely at a Sprint store that they may just give you a battery door for your Evo. If not, then why not ask around the forum to see if another member is willing to swap?
