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.

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.
