To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
Forums Added for the HTC Desire 610 and LG G3 US Carrier Variants
We recently added two new sets of forums here on XDA. The first is the affordable and mid-range HTC Desire 610, while the second set consists of US Carrier variants for the popular LG G3 flagship device.
Starting things off on the LG side, the LG G3 is the company’s flagship for 2014. Just like what we saw with the international version, the US Carrier variants of the G3 are high end devices. They all feature a 5.5″ Quad HD IPS LCD, which runs at an eye-numbing 1440×2560 resolution. The device is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3 GB of RAM. Internal storage is available at either 16 GB or 32 GB. The G3 also features a 13 MP camera with “laser autofocus” and a scratch-resistant polycarbonate finish.
Next up is HTC’s more modestly priced device. polycarbonate finish. The HTC Desire 610 is a mid-range device with a 4.7″ running at a resolution of 540×960. It’s powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It features 8 GB of internal storage and an 8MP camera.
Are any of these devices high up on your list for potential next devices? Do you fancy the G3’s insanely sharp screen and high end specs, or would you rather save a few dollars and go with the Desire 610? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums below.

The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
