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?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
Official XDA Developers Desktop Wallpapers
Today has been a pretty eventful and exciting day with site announcements. First with our announcement of the new and extremely quick auto-QR Code system now being applied to all thread attachments, and now this.
There’s something I’ve felt has been missing from XDA for a very long time. Recently, considering my position on XDA TV, our sister-video show, I’ve had a screenshot of the opening titles as my wallpaper, displaying the title ‘xdadevelopers’ for all to see. Unfortunately, there’s a reason that I was forced to do this as opposed to having a high quality and high resolution version. It didn’t exist.
After I made this discovery, I promptly shot an email over to our delightful user experience admin, Svetius, who instructed me to ‘get on that’ as soon as possible. After being sent the neccesary resource files, I ‘got on that’ and processed a collection of ‘priceless’ and official XDA Developers wallpapers. Revelations!
What’s the best bit? They’re available for download, right now. Don’t say that we don’t spoil you. However, they are currently only available in 16:9 (widescreen) and not 4:3 (not… widescreen). If you’re living in the 21st century, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue for you.
If you’d like to download the collection, head on over to the download link.

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.
