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?).

XDA Roundtable with NVIDIA and NVIDIA Project SHIELD
Not too long ago, we held our first XDA Roundtable with a few developers and enthusiasts. While it was a tad bit impromptu (read: “last minute”) it was a smashing success. We vowed we would do them again, and here we are with just a bit more warning.
NVIDIA announced at CES that they were bringing out their own gaming system based on Android, dubbed Project SHIELD. The device allows you to play all sorts of great games found on the Google Play Store, as well as play games from your PC via wireless streaming. Through a great relationship with NVIDIA, we will be doing a live hangout and getting a personalized demonstration of SHIELD as well as answering your questions.
The live hangout takes place Saturday April 6 at 1PM CST (UTC-5) and here’s how this is going to work:
- Visit our XDA Event Page and let us know you’re going to watch.
- On Saturday before the hangout check back either to the Event Page or this post for a link to the live hangout on YouTube.
- You will also find a link to the IRC chatroom where you can post your live questions to be answered by NVIDIA, or post them as a comment on the XDA Event Page and we’ll look to include them.
We look forward to having you join us for what will be a great time.

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.
