4 Reasons WhatsApp Video Call Feature May Suck

It was great news when WhatsApp went from being just an interesting messenger to having extra features like WhatsApp Web, and then Whatsapp voice call was added.
Right now there are rumors WhatsApp might be having Video call feature added to the list, they're still testing the new development on an iPhone, well, I am not totally against it but I feel video call on WhatsApp may end up not being the way you're anticipating it to be after you see the points below:

The App Size will Suck Your Phone's Memory:

When WhatsApp Video Call Feature arrives, you know the data size of the App will definitely increase, this means the WhatsApp will use more RAM on your smartphones, and it will likely crash often than before if the App is not well optimised or your device doesn't have large RAM.



Once again, some users will be left behind

Platforms: We all know other mobile platforms, J2ME and Symbian - Yes, **tongue-out** (they still exist) had been left behind since WhatsApp introduced the calling feature, this was only supported for Android OS 2.1 and above, on Apple iPhones it required iOS 6 or later, and you know how it took a while before eventually coming to Windows Phones. The moment Video calling feature is added, that's 2 steps forward, leaving the other guys behind.

Data Users: As it is with some countries that are yet to have a reliable fast and cheap internet, many people would wish but not be able to use the video calling feature.

We have Skype, FaceTime, IMO... How Many More Must We use?

WhatsApp may have somehow beaten Viber when they introduced Voice Call, but Skype, the biggest boss in the VoIP game is still doing great at Voice and Video calling.
Even Facebook Messenger does video calls, although we'd say different strokes for different folks but how many more must consumers use?

If WhatsApp introduces Video call, the only good thing about it will be benefits between Contact to Contact but if you're conversant with voice calling using WhatsApp and Skype; you'll testify that WhatsApp call is yet to be as good as Skype calls in terms of sound quality and instant responses.

Unless WhatsApp is coming with an exceptional way of doing video calls, most people will definitely stick with Skype for video calls on PC and Mobile.



Heck! They're Shifting From Traditional Messenger with No Privacy



Some users, including myself still see WhatsApp as a traditional text and multi-media messenger, however, glancing at the direction they're shifting to without User Privacy, their user experience may decline; reason being that ever since WhatsApp introduced Call feature, I believe you had received incoming call alerts at the least time you expected, this happens on other Messenger Apps too, and it's far more occasional on WhatsApp.
I recall an early morning, around 1:30AM somebody was ringing me on WhatsApp because I kept my internet on.
I bet same people would be using Video calls for more impromptu Calls like that when it arrives.

According to online encyclopedia Wikipedia,  a trilogy is a set of three works of art that are connected, and that can be seen either as a single work or as three individual works. They are referring to this particular device, Zero 3.

We are even here with a leaked photo of the coming flagship:

Infinix NOTE 2 Review Details:

The latest Infinix Note 2 is the 3rd model in the NOTE series, and if you're already familiar with the previous Hot Note and Hot Note Pro, you will notice Note 2 or Big 6 has few similar features.

Similar Features on Hot Note and Hot Note Pro which you'll also Find On NOTE 2 includes:

- Big memory size
- Ultra-Power saving mode
- Fast Charge support
- Hand Gestures
- Dual (micro) SIM

This leads us to the Pros and Cons of the Infinix Note 2, let's begin with the Cons ( Bad sides of the Note 2 ) first, then we conclude with the Pros.

INFINIX NOTE 2, The Cons:

- The Back Cover is yet another Plastic
- Back Camera is bulging out a bit, this is not necessarily an issue though.
- Position of the speaker, found at the back of the phone
- Some of its specs has no much difference between the Previous Note series. But of course there's definitely some difference with the Big 6 (Note 2) which we will point out in the PROS of the Note 2 below.

INFINIX NOTE 2, The Pros:

THE SIZE:

As the name implies "the Big 6" , means it's 6 inches in length, this should definitely be the first priority that makes the Note 2 different from others. This could be a Con for people that don't like carrying big phones or phablets but be a huge advantage for those who enjoy games and movies. "Irony of Life huh?" LOL

THE CAMERA:

Infinix Big 6 Comes with 13MP camera that produces some quality, in fact the last time I tested the device's camera, both of the cameras were pretty good, especially the 2MP camera which proved that it was not about the number being 2MP, it was well optimised and produces very clear photos and videos.

PROCESSOR: 

Note 2 (Infinix Big 6) features a fast 1.3GHz Octa-core processor of MediaTek chipset, this processor is not so different one in the previous Hote Note but it features a higher 64 Bits. That may make a small difference.

OPERATING SYSTEM:

Note 2 comes pre-installed with Android Lollipop 5.1 for those who love the latest stuff, although we have a tutorial that teaches you how to manually upgrade if you use Infinix Hot Note X551, you may check out this post here.
More so, the Android 5.1 Lollipop based operating system is fully customised by the company's own User interface known as XUI.
XUI aims to improve battery life, faster responsiveness and customizable interface. Talking about the level of customization, XUI offers 7 different themes and chic wallpapers and useful Apps like Contact Cloud Backup among others found in Note 2.
Infinix XUI


THE BODY DESIGN:

This design on Note 2 (X600) is totally unique from the other Note series, it looks a bit more premium considering the facr that it has some resemblance with Huawei Honor flagships.
Note 2 also features LED indicators that blinks different colors depending on the type of notification that comes in.

4G LTE NETWORK: 

The Note 2 is precisely the first model to feature a 4G LTE network support, hence if you own a Smile 4G SIM or Spectranet, you can try it out and enjoy internet browsing that would be faster than the usual 3.5G.

To clear the airwaves: The device is not water-proof, the battery is 4040mAh, although some say it's 4000mAh (we haven't seen a lower or higher one on Note 2) and the Camera is 2MP front, and 13MP at the Back.

We will take us much closer and have more to Share with you, including live photos in our unboxing and hands-on review that would come soon in our future post.

PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY -
Right now, the device is near you:

For Shoppers - Use these Black Friday Hacks To Shop and Get All You Want!

Okay, it's 24 hours left before Black Friday officially blows up on 26th and 27th of November 2015, we believe this Black Friday 2015 (in Nigeria) is going to be tha bomb!
Online malls are ready and I believe you too is ready to grab what they have for you at the lowest prices that come only once in a Year.



Now, the aim of this post here is to get you ready, there are cool shortcuts, tricks or hacks which the smartest shoppers will use to buy goods online ( I want you to be among them), these Online malls know this tip but they have not told you, they won't even tell you, but we will reveal them so it will:

  • Make you Shop very smartly and brilliantly,
  • It would save you time, 
  • and help you buy most of the stuffs you want on Black Friday. Nothing like RUNNING OUT OF STOCK ( I hate that message with Passion )


1. Have a Budget:

Just like you will normally do when moving out to buy groceries at the market near your street, have some amount (save some if you haven't), this will help you not spend beyond your limit, even if you do, it won't be a big impromptu expense.

2. Have a Shopping list and WishList:

Make a list of what you want to buy and be sure they fall into the category of the Items that will have nicest discounts on Black Friday, I have confirmed some of such items will include:

  • latest TV, 
  • mobile phones (especially Infinix, Innjoo, Samsung, iPhone ),
  • Laptops, computers and its accessories 
  • Electronics and Gaming systems (especialy Sony PlayStation 4) 
  • Fashion items, 
  • Beauty products and Care accessories,
  • Home Appliances 
  • and Kitchen appliances. 


Now add those items to your wish list in your account of the online malls so you can easily find them on Black Friday, just incase those items will get massive discounts (they do many times so far they fall into the categories we listed up there)

3. Be Prepared: 

How do you Prepare for Black Friday?
i.) Charge Everything! Your Phones, Tablets and Laptops, whatever you'll use to Shop, ensure the batteries are full.
Get a Power Bank if need be, for back ups in case of power failure.
ii.) Get your Internet connections ready:
Have enough data, and make sure you have network coverage that is fast.

4. Come Early, Stay on the Online mall and Be Fast :

You might say "why should you stay there so early, don't I have other things to do?", Sure you have other things to do, and shopping that day is among them right?

Why You Should Be early Online -
Well, I am sharing this with you based on my personal experience, people don't mind, they will come early, wait there, and grab all the deals.

Because FLASH SALES will Hold - 
Quickly, let me flash back to June 2015 during Jumia Mobile Week, after a lot of hyping, people expected 50% OFF for even iPhone 6! Come onnn! You want a company to wreck?
People expected Jumia to make shopping easy but they didn't, they took us by surprise which got many shoppers annoyed, Jumia used a lot of Flash Sales to do 50% OFF on mid-range smartphones and few other items which the fastest shoppers still used, although it took a while but I later understood the trick.

DURING FLASH SALES, Jumia will announce a time the flash sales will start, and a Voucher which you will use to get the Discount, Note, the Stock is LIMITED, hence it's fastest fingers first.  So you are to be online, mark the time, and be there before the Time.
Simply open another tab and choose the Item then Confirm You are buying till you reach CHECK OUT Page where you have Total amount and where to ADD VOUCHER, immediately the time CLOCKS a voucher will pop up on your Screen, Copy the Voucher Code, apply it ASAP.
That's the system they used for Mobile Week, and it seems they may use it again.
You will need to be very FAST During Flash sales , fastest finger grabs it all.


For those Shopping on Konga, their (Black Friday known as Fall Yakata holds for 2 days being 26 and 27th November) Yakata Starts 6AM while Jumia holds only on 27th.
Kaymu Online market place will also be among in the Black Friday Sales.

HERE ARE THE BLACK FRIDAY PAGES FOR THE ONLINE MALLS, they all have Mobile Apps which you can also use. You can choose where you'll shop from:


And incase you're asking, there will be Free delivery, I think for Items worth from 10,000NGN or so.
This post may be updated as we gather more tips to use that day.

Any questions or contributions, pls tell us, and don't forget to hit the Share Button Below.
This 26th and 27th, Black Friday is Upon us!

YouTube Brings Virtual Reality To Viewers with This Amazing Video

May be you are hearing of virtual reality for the first time. Let's quickly describe, in less than 5 seconds...
Virtual Reality is the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.
For a simpler understanding let's just say Virtual reality is bringing "Virtual" into Reality.



With all the rumors we had been getting and even the virtual reality products that is already available in the markets, products like Facebook's Oculus and the Samsung VR Gear, if you were at TECH PLUS 2015 that took place in Lagos mid of this year, you may have seen Samsung VR in action during one of the conferences, these are interesting and helpful gadgets we hope to share with you in our future posts someday but today, I'd like to tell us that YouTube in partnership with Apple Music and GoPro Camera (more about the camera after the video) had already implemented this and released a totally awesome virtual reality video having an artiste, to whom I am a fan of, speaking of XO's Abel, popularly known as The Weeknd, this was a video of his hit track's Remix "The Hills".


In this video, you find this guy coming out of a building, acting dizzy, but that's not the point, the interesting part is You, the viewer, can tap into the reality of that video, with the navigation button found on the top left, you can have a move and look around the whole scene. This puts you into "virtual reality" , we don't wanna say much, just watch the video below.




The virtual reality video shoot was made possible through the use of an extra-ordinary video camera GOPRO 6-camera virtual reality rig, officially called "ODYSSEY". This camera is quite very expensive, around $15,000 and it's not for everybody, only "professional content creators and producers" are allowed to get and use it, this is probably the reason why you see mighty Apple Music doing this video using the camera.

Cool stuff isn't it? Please Share or tell us what you think. :)

File Manager comes to Infinix Hot 2 after Minor Update

Phew! This was the sound I made after installing the update and seeing new Icons on my Infinix Hot 2 Menu.
It was around 8 or 9pm, 11th Novemeber 2015.

I got the update and installed it and viola! I found a File Manager on the Infinix Hot 2, this should be the second or third OTA update since the Android One smartphone was launched into the market in August.

File Manager comes to Infinix Hot 2File Manager comes to Infinix Hot 2


With the New File Manager you can:
Set Music files as Ringtone.
Set as notification sound
Set as alarm
You can Copy, Cut, Paste or delete files etc

File Manager comes to Infinix Hot 2


The data size of the OTA update is around 65MB, and it comes with 4 apps after you install it:

  • File Manager
  • Online Shopping
  • Lazada
  • Device Assist (From Google)

Getting the OTA On Your Infinix Hot 2 X510

Simply switch On and use WiFi or use your networks data connection to get the update (make sure you Unroot before installing the OTA).

SOMETHING OF NOTE:

Although we were told that updates or upgrades will be managed by Google themselves, this particular update seemed to have come from Pakistan because of the language of those 2 added apps (Online shopping& Lazada) that came with the OTA, perhaps it was their XUI developers over there who arranged it.

To me, only the File Manager and Device Assist are useful, I uninstalled the other two shopping apps.

Before the File Manager App update, I already had been using ES Explorer to handle my files but hope this update answers the queries of those that had been complaining that the device doesn't come with File Manager (reason being that it's Android One and most Android One phones come purely with only Google Apps and without any modifications).

Something else I noticed is if you DELETE a file using the new File manager, the deleted file won't disappear unless you navigate out and come back to the file location then you'd notice you already deleted the File. I think that's a Bug they will need to fix.
