My Android is slow: 5 things you can do to speed your phone back up - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
Make your Android fast again — it is possible We've all been there. You have a fancy, new, highly complex Android-powered computational device that can do everything from checking your email to surfing the web to controlling your microwave so your popcorn doesn't burn. It's shiny, and screaming fast while doing all the things we wanted it to do. Everything is roses all around.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha teardown reveals razor thin display assembly - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
A full disassembly of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha gives us a peek under the hood. The most noteworthy aspect of the device's internal hardware is the super-slim 1.4 mm display, which is half the width of the iPhone 6 front panel. This actually makes repairing fairly difficult given how much adhesive Samsung uses. There's also a gasket around the headphone jack, which hints that all-around waterproofing may have been a consideration at some point.
