Infinix To Launch Note 5 With Stylus Under Android One Project

Three years ago, Google brought the Android One Project to Africa with the launch of the Infinix HOT 2.

The aim of the Android One project is to make and sell cheap android phones with good specifications. Android One phones always receive the latest android updates sooner than most phones.

Android ONE devices were originally low-end devices but things have changed now; Android One will not only run on low end devices but high end devices too.

Infinix mobility is about to release an Android ONE phablet device, the Infinix Note 5 Stylus. The Infinix Note 5 Stylus will offer almost a flagship specifications at a reasonable price.

The Infinix Note 5 stylus is coming with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo, coupled with an Android One badge for a clean, stock Android look straight from Google.

According to speculations, we should expect the following features on the Infinix Note 5:

Face Unlock: The Hot 6 launched with Face recognition, so it's safe to say we can also expect it on the Note 5.

Big Battery: The major selling point of Infinix Note devices have always been their large battery capacity, last year’s model came packed with a sizeable 4300mAh battery and the company is hinting at bumping up the size so 4500 or 5000mAh maybe.

Display: The Infinix Note 5 will come with 18:9 aspect ratio on 6.2 inches Full HD IPS LCD display screen to give infinity display and immersive viewing experience.

Operating System: The Infinix Note 5 is an Android ONE device so  its obviously coming with the latest Android version available which Android 8.1 Oreo.

Camera: The Infinix Note 5 is rumored to be coming with a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and 1.25um large pixels and a 8MP selfie camera.

When Will it Launch?
The Infinix Note 5 is Expected to launch on 24th of June 2018 in Dubai.

Five Tips To Help You Be A Smarter Smartphone Users

I'm really sorry I haven't been around here for a really long while, I've had a lot on my plate and it was difficult joggling them with blogging.
But I'm here now and I'll try to make up for lost time!

We all use smartphones but do we that there are certain things we do that we shouldn't be doing and vice versa?

Smartphones have become an integral part of life of people of all ages. But no matter your age, there are some basic ideas for keeping mobile phone use safe and constructive.

1. Share with care:
When sharing things from your device, be sure that they wouldn't hurt anyone's feeling or send a bad message about anyone. Once they’re posted, text, photos, and videos are hard to take back, they can easily be copied and pasted elsewhere, and they might end up there forever. Think about the people in them (including you!). Reputations are at stake.

2. Avoiding texting while moving:
This doesn't just apply to people that are driving, as there have also been reports of accidents that happened to people that were using their phone while walking.
Therefore, never text, send email, use apps or configure the phone’s GPS while driving, riding a bike/bicycle.

Texting and driving

3. Don't speak loudly over the phone:
You shouldn't talk in a really loud voice while on the phone, as doing so might disturb people around you and violate your privacy(exposing your private conversations to third-parties).


4. Take Some Time Off:
This is a problem most smartphone users face, they get overly addicted to their device that they sometimes forget the real world exists.

Excessive smartphone usage can negatively affect sleep, concentration, school, and other important things that requires your focus. Sometimes you need to just drop your phone and socialize with people in real life(social media could never substitute this) or just take a short nap.

5. Share your location mindfully:
A lot of apps allow friends to pinpoint each other’s physical location. If you use such a service, do so only with friends you know in person and would like to share your location with.

I can say without a doubt that over 50% of smartphone users are guilty of at least one of the above things however we should try to change the ways we use our devices to stay safe and smart!

Unique Features Of BlackCasino That Sets It Apart From The Crowd

Hello everyone, I recently wrote an article about Black Casino, a unique peer-to-peer/Gaming platform that was recently introduced to the public.

BlackCasino
In the last post, I didn't really cover all the features of the platform, the unique recommitment and all.
So you might have been wondering what puts BlackCasino apart from all the other crowdfunding projects out there.

The following features have been put in place to ensure that the platform last longer.
• 30 days Maturity period
• A recommitment policy to ensure recycling.

The 30-day maturity period was set to ensure that there's enough breathing time for the platform as opposed to the regular shorter 14/16-days maturity period that puts excessive pressure on the system which is really unhealthy.

The recommitment policy also helps safeguard the health of the platform.
As we all know, for a crowdfunding project to florish the participants have to keep donating to keep the money flowing.
And the recommitment ensure that it flowing.
To be eligible to receive your payment, you have to recommitment and pay 50% of your next donation.

I believe with these features alongside the casino games, Black Casino has a big chance of surviving.

Do you love making money easily?(Of course, right)

If your answer to any the questions above is yes then this article is specially for you, just keep reading to find out how.

BlackCasino

BlackCasino is a unique platform that combines peer-to-peer donation with casino games... The first of it's kind in Nigeria!

I know at the mention of peer-to-peer donation, you want to run out the door.
Just give me the chance to explain what you stand to gain with BlackCasino.

It is a known fact that peer-to-peer donation platforms and crowdfunding projects have failed woefully in the country and that is as a result of two things; Greedy admins and participants​ with "Hit and Run" prospects if it wasn't for these two factors, crowdfunding is a lucrative business that we can all benefit from.

That been said, BlackCasino has been prepared in a way that these two things are checked to ensure a thriving platform.

You may wonder, what are the unique features of BlackCasino besides it being the first ever Gaming/Peer-to-peer donation platform.

On the gaming section, players can play games and win 5x their stake.
And the games are quite easy to win so it's a good deal.
You can test the BlackCasino Games here to know what to expect.

BlackCasino games

For the donation aspect, investors earn 2x their donations in 30 days as opposed to regular 14 - 16 day period which is hardly ever sustainable.

BlackCasino peer-to-peer

It also has a strict 50% recommitment which is paid before you are allowed to you receive your expected pay.

Note: The 50% is part payment for your next donation.

Finally, you may decide to take part in any of the two sections of the platform or you can do both Gaming and Peer-to-peer to maximize your earnings.

Google Chrome’s Next Update Will Finally Block Autoplay Videos That Have Sound

One thing I really hate while browsing besides flooding ads is unexpected autoplaying video.
You're peacefully browsing, enjoying the moment next a video is playing from God knows where.

google blocks autoplaying videos

Thankfully, Google is finally getting serious about blocking annoying autoplay videos. The next Chrome update (version 66) will include changes to autoplay videos that means the browser will only play them if you click and interact with the site, or have previously “shown an interest in media on the site.”

These changes was originally scheduled for Chrome 64, which arrived in January with an option to permanently mute annoying websites that abuse autoplay videos with the sound on by default.

Apple Reportedly Working On A Foldable iPhone

Earlier yesterday, I was discussing iPhone designs with a friend who is a chronic Apple Fanboy and I told him that the company had run out design ideas judging by the poor design of the iPhone X and the three iPhones expected to launch this year(My opinion). This wasn't our first iPhone vs Android discussion and is certainly not the last.

Anyways, according to him, Apple was going to come up with a new design which would be better than the preceding ones. I didn't believe this was possible because to me, the iphone 7 Plus design is the best Apple has and would be able to come up with. But then, I saw this article on The verge suggesting that Apple is reportedly working on a foldable iPhone which could be released within two years.
foldable iphone

Senior analyst Wamsi Mohan wrote a note to clients today after meeting several Apple suppliers in Asia. “We expect the iPhones this fall to be largely unchanged for the OLED versions although size changes have proved to be a catalyst in the past,” Mohan wrote, “Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020.”

Last year, a Korean media outlet reported that Apple was teaming up with LG, but that report only had anonymous industry sources so it wasn't taken serious. It stated that Apple would order foldable OLED panels that could start production in 2020.

Both Samsung and Lenovo have already hinted phones with foldable screens, but neither have actually released such a device on the market. Given the patents and demonstrations out there, it seems like foldable screens could be the next form factor.

There Are Reports Of Samsung S9 Having An Unresponsive Touchsreen

Some Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices are experiencing problems with unresponsive touchscreens, according to various reports from online forums like Reddit and XDA. Some users are complaining that some parts of their Galaxy S9/S9+ are not functioning.

This is really bad for Samsung as the Samsung S9 and S9+ were launched  ery recently and they had a major issue with the unresolved widespread Galaxy Note 7 explosion issues last year which made the company totally scrap the Note 7 device.
I sincerely hope this is nothing like the Galaxy Note 7(for their sake).

It’s not clear how widespread the unresponsive touchscreen problem is, but according to Android Central, Samsung has already issued a statement saying that it’s “looking into a limited number of reports,” so hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Teleology Holdings Is Officially The New Owner Of 9Mobile

After a long period of biding and back and forth speculation, Teleology Holdings Limited has been officially confirmed as the preferred bidder for 9mobile by Barclays Africa who is acting as the transaction adviser.

teleology holdings own 9mobile

According to the report, Barclays Africa sent an official letter declaring Teleology Holdings Limited as the preferred bidder.
Teleology was also told to make a non-refundable cash deposit of $50 million within 21 days from the date of the letter or forfeit its position as the preferred bidder which has been done so Teleology Holdings officially owns 9mobile.

They have now formed an alliance with Safaricom a popular Telecom company.

I think Teleology deserved the win after coming on strong right from the start even when some of the bidders ran due to the large debt 9mobile had amassed, I only wish that they don't change the name again, a lot of us haven't gotten used to saying 9mobile we can't afford a new name now.

1 Million More Nigerians Have Activated DND on Their Lines

Before I continue with this post, let me clarify and explain what D-N-D means for those that don't know.
Simply put, D-N-D stands for Do-Not-Disturb, and as the name suggests,it is a service that allows users to block unauthorized sms and calls mostly from service providers and other advertisements.
According to recent reports, about 9 million Nigerians have activated the DND code on their phones.
how to activate dnd
This was revealed by the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission(NCC), Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, at the just concluded Mobile World Congress where he was a speaker.

The number was said to have increased from 8 million subscribers last year to 9 million in February— representing an increase of 12.5%.

Although, the D-N-D command was created to stop subscribers from receiving unsolicited calls from service providers, it isn't 100% effective as some calls and texts still manage to crawl in. This unprecedented breach of service has forced the NCC to introduce the 622 service line, a toll-free line that allows subscribers to report cases of directly to the NCC.

Lets see if the new 622 line would stop service providers from disturbing her users.
