Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
XDA Launches New Set of Forums for App Developers
There’s so much stuff happening on XDA that it’s sometimes tough to get a handle on it all. Obviously we have root tools and a bevy of ROMs, along with all the related conversation. However, we also have people discussing specs of upcoming devices, talking about what cases provide the best protection, providing community tech support (in practice shaming online efforts by phone manufacturers), posting screenshots of their home screens, and even just letting loose in our off-topic forum. And for the past several years, some of the most popular forums on XDA have been populated with developers discussing the challenges of building apps and then releasing their creations to the community. This is especially evident by the popularity of our Android Apps and Games forum.
We’re not sure if there are any (other) great communities out there for app developers to converse about things like development tools, prototyping, analytics, monetization, testing, security, localization, education, etc. But we do know that the XDA was missing a central hub for all of that. There is obviously much related discussion spread through several general or OS-specific forums and even in the device-specific app forums. But there has never been an organized set of forums that app developers could call their own to help them be better app developers. Today, we’re changing that with our new set of App Developer Forums.
It’s still early and the forums have generally sparse content, so we’re asking anyone that has something to contribute pertaining to app development (tutorials, guides, tips, etc) to please make some posts in the new forum so that everyone can benefit from you knowledge. If you’re not an app developer (or an aspiring app developer), please do not post in this forum.

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
