XDA-Developers Beginning to Get Noticed

Well, we always thought that our “little” forum always went unnoticed to anyone outside of the Android/Windows Mobile/Windows Phone 7 hacking community. According to an article by The Business Insider, that is hardly the case. As it turns out, some business publications normally put up “the top xx on xx”, which are basically small articles to help readers and end users a ranking system of where they could get help if needed or where they should go for the best of the best. In this particular case, the article titled “The Top 25 Tech And Gadget Gurus You Should Follow On Twitter” featured a wide display of professional publications and bloggers from our beloved tech industry. People from gdgt, Facebook, and many other online publications were featured, but the best part is that so did we!! And not only that, we actually made it about half way through in that ranking, landing in the 14th place. Needless to say, this is only featuring the Twitter accounts for all the different individuals and as xda-developers has its own Twitter account, the whole site got featured as opposed to a single individual.

It is always an honor and great to know that people actually know about us in the outer borders of our device filled worlds. In the name of all the site, we thank you for noticing and for featuring us.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
