This remote is, though, NFC enabled and has many worthwhile features.
HTC mini allows the users to make any call from the phone remotely and also shows any messages belonging to the user. It also allows the users to check out the call log, but, doesn't really allow attending any call or typing messages.

Tethering an Android phone is quite useful for people who want to go to places where there is no free Wi-Fi and use their phone as a hotspot. This functionality is often cancelled by mobile carriers because tethering eats up a lot of data. For this reason, mobile carriers charge high fees for using this functionality.
However, lucky Android users can now enjoy tethering benefits by using an application called Hotspot Control app, which is one of the many applications that are used to tether an Android phone. Chainfire developed this application and is quite easy to use. What you do is to simply turn the Wi-Fi on, key-in the name and password and allow access. A good thing about this app is that you do not even need to root your phone to enjoy this function.
This application will work on any smartphone that runs on at least Android 4.0.3 and will eat up only as much as 80k space if you are keen on maintaining your phone's memory to a specific level.

For those of you who play tech support for friends and family, there's now a Hangouts app to make things easier -- powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop.
Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you're both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.
The news was broken by Daniel Caiafa, who has confirmed that the tool is using the same technology as the Chrome Remote Desktop tool.
To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop.
