Remove Annoying Facebook Messenger and Facebook Camera from App Drawer

With the newer iterations of the official Facebook app, many users have been outraged to find that Facebook has taken some liberties and have installed new software on their phones. Along with the official Facebook app, users also get the Facebook Messenger app and the Facebook Camera app.

While the Messenger app may be a tad useful for those who frequently use Facebook’s chat feature, the Facebook Camera app has been deemed utterly useless by most, as all Android phones have their own camera app, and for some with heavily modified ROMs, maybe even a second one if they have the ICS camera app on a Gingerbread ROM.

Something had to be done, and now something has been done. XDA Senior Member machx0r has released a small application that removes the FB Camera and Messenger icons from your app drawer. While the apps remain on the device, they are not visible to the user after running the app. It takes only a couple of minutes.

To learn more, head over to the application thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

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...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

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...
