If anything, we love how HTC is confidently making it known that Samsung underwhelmed a group of spectators during its much-publicized launched in New York City. While there are those who are really excited at what the S 4 can do, many were also disappointed that what they have been waiting for was actually "Meh". HTC is one of them, voicing out its opinion over Twitter that the S 4 will actually flop.
It sounds like the brilliant company has something up its sleeves and we might be in the dark. After suffering a major delay with the production of some important components of its HTC One, the company is maintaining its confidence with interesting tweets bashing Samsung's highly popular S 4.
Anyway, we love a good underdog story; let's just hope that HTC will deliver soon.

Facebook has been under intense pressure to take over the phones of the users. This is evidenced by Chat Heads, Facebook Home, Messenger Apps and official updates. It has even gone further and started offering full voice calls for free to the Messenger users in the United States. This same feature was last month offered to Canadians. The service requires that Facebook messenger should be naturally installed. If you want to initiate call, you simply have to head in to the list of contacts, open a message, and then hit "I" which is at the top right corner. Once you have done this, you will see "Free Call" option in the list.
The user can receive call for free if the "Free Call" is white. If it is gray, that is an indication that your friend cannot receive calls. This new feature which does not require update of applications should at the present be rolling out to the users.
