Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?).

Get All Images on Your GMail Without the Hassle
All Android users who use the Gmail app have something in common, we all have to let Google know that it is ok to download the images in the e-mails. As annoying as this may seem, this feature is useful for people roaming or with low data quotas. However, for those under unlimited data plans, it is a bit annoying to having to accept the images downloads on every e-mail. XDA member Anderdroid created a modded version of the Gmail.apk and removed the limitation present in the original one, which forces the user to accept the images before even attempting to download them.
Use this with care, particularly if you are roaming, as data charges can add really quick. The devices don’t need to be rooted to use this patch.
I noticed one annoying thing about Gmail for me. I always had to hit the big “Display Images” button to view emails properly.
So I decompiled it, did some editing, and got it to always display images period. Doesn’t ever show that big ugly button either. All emails load images, it’s great.
This is based on the latest FROYO Gmail. I may make a version for Eclair if there’s enough people interested.

Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
