Tecno Camon 16 Premier review

Tecno Camon 16 Premier review

The Tecno Camon 16 Premier is one of its kind. Of course you could easily relate it to the Samsung S20, because of the similarity in build and specs, but once you experience it, you get to feel how much unique it is. We got to tell you the brief detail about it in the first impressions, and are now here to go to the bottom of it all.

For starters, you ought to know that the Camon 16 Premier is the king of the Camon 16 series – which include the basic Camon 16 and the Camon 16s. This means that opting for it is more like taking it all from the table. Tecno has bundled the best of its specifications into the device and any thing else you would need in the phone should come in the Camon 17.

Let’s get to the review!

Body and Build

When it comes to the body, the Camon 16 Premier comes in 170.6×77.2×9.1mm dimensions and weighs a cool 203g. It is built in a plastic body and the unit we are reviewing is Glacial Silver in colour. The colour gives it a metal-like look on the back while maintaining a cool tech-like output. The slim frame body is built to fit perfectly in the holder’s palm, making it comfortable to hold when on the move. 

The display is a hugely tall 6.90″ IPS LCD, coming with a 1080x2340px resolution, and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It has support for HDR10+, and possesses and impressive 90Hz refresh rate. This means all that you do will flow like a river, if you can make a relation.

Tecno Camon 16 Premier Hardware and software

And you could wonder what on the inside supports this fluid screen flow. It’s the chipset under neath. The Camon 16 Premier comes with a Mediatek MT6785 Helio G90T 12 nm chip. In this is a set of Octa-core processors: 2 being 2.05 GHz Cortex-A76s and 6 being 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55s. The GPU is a Mali-G76 MC4. This combination makes performance a lot faster than on any other Tecno device you could have held before, something the company points at being 11% more.

Memory-wise, the Tecno Camon 16 Premier comes with 128GB internal storage alongside 8GB RAM; with a microSDXC dedicated slot in the event that you wish to expand the storage to something much more.

Did we mention a thing about the Operating System or Software? The phone runs on Android 10 on top of HiOS 7.0. Featuring a brand-new interface, colorful themes, vivid icons, to a smarter interaction, the new OS combines  trendy and comfortable colors with an all-new design to bring you the most intelligent system experience. 

Some of the interesting features on the HiOS 7 is the Auto Ear Pick-up. This enables you to save the sliding or swiping before getting a call attended. Just put your phone to your ear to pick up your call. There is also a photo Compressor allows you to compress large photos into smaller sized photos without decreasing image resolution. Of course, this comes in handy given that the Camon is all about photography.

That’s all about the introduction. Let’s get to the main event, exactly what the Camon is all about.

Tecno Camon 16 Premier Camera

The Camon 16 Premier takes centre stage in ensuring that it’s cameras are top notch for the perfect photography you’d expect of it. On the rear are 4 cameras.

A wide or what we’d call main camera compromised of a 64 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1/1.73″, 0.8µm, PDAF, Sony IMX686 sensor. This is accompanied by an ultra wide angle 8 MP, f/2.3, 119-degree (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm camera. This is capable of autofocus, and we know it to be a GalaxyCore GC8034 sensor. 

The third is a depth camera, a 2 MP, f/2.4, 1.75µm, GalaxyCore GC02M1B sensor; while the fourth is a low-light 2 MP, f/2.4, 2.8µm, GalaxyCore GC20A3 sensor dedicated to videography. All these are powered by a penta-LED flash, capable of panorama, and supporting HDR.

On the front are two cameras. A wide 48 MP, f/2.2, 23mm, 1/2.0″, 0.8µm sensor; alongside an ultra wide angle 8 MP, f/2.2, 105-degree, 1/4.0″, 1.12µm sensor. These are supported by an adjustable dual-LED flash, and are also capable of HDR.

In regards to video capturing, the rear cameras can record 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 30fps, 720p at 960fps, and gyro-EIS. The front cameras can capture motion at a rate of 1080p at 30fps.

There are a number of modes to make use of when capturing your images on the Camon 16 Premier. From Portrait Bokeh, HDR Portrait, AI Beautification, to Super Night. The time of the day is not an issue, yet the sensors can accommodate up to ten times of zoom in and out. There is also an all new camera interaction to guide you on how to take all the nice photos.

Battery

The Tecno Camon 16 Premier is able to do all this with a strong and reliable battery. It has a 4500mAh cell that supports fast charging at a 33W rate. When you have it, you can be sure to get your phone juiced up to 70% in 30 minutes. This is guaranteed. Tecno added heat-tube dissipation to the phone to ensure it remains cool when charging. 

The device comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, an accelerometer, proximity, compass; and FM radio for your on-the-move listening.

Huawei Cloud drives success for African e-commerce platform

Huawei Cloud drives success for African e-commerce platform

Cloud and app store support play a critical role in ensuring the success of e-commerce platforms in Africa. This was the view from Lulu Haangala Wood, co-founder and CMO of Afrishop, an e-commerce hub offering convenient, quality shopping and affordable logistics to the African market. She was speaking at the Huawei Cloud & AI Forum at the online AfricaCom 2020 event, part of the Africa Tech Festival from November 9-13.

Afrishop launched its offering supported by Huawei Cloud, providing convenient online shopping and affordable logistics and courier services. Afrishop’s aim is to create a more convenient and affordable delivery service for consumers looking for quality goods from China. 

In its launch and development, Afrishop got support from Huawei Cloud infrastructure and Huawei AppGallery, the app store on Huawei smartphones.

We are available on Android and Apple app stores, but our competitive advantage has been that we are available on the Huawei AppGallery on Huawei phones, which are widely used in Africa,” said Haangala Wood. “Having that partnership from Huawei to push our app in the app store really helped us, and we saw a big uptick in downloads.

She said there had long been a need for a good supply-chain management system to African consumers. Afrishop set out to provide convenience and affordable last-mile delivery, right to the customer’s doorstep.  

We offer B2C and B2B services for customers who want to purchase individual pieces, as well as fulfilment of bulk orders,” said Haangala Wood.  “Our main services are online shopping and supply chain management, and our solution is faster, easier and more convenient than other platforms. Our customer has access through both our app and our website, because apps don’t have a big uptake in all African territories yet.

Haangala Wood said Afrishop had seen 10 000 downloads in its first week and had continued to grow over the past nine months. The platform operates in Zambia, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, and Angola. 

Influencer marketing has been a huge part of our strategy, as well as offline marketing through traditional media, which remains relevant in the African market,” said Haangala Wood. “However, our core has been digital marketing. With our current app, distribution and listing in the Huawei app gallery comes at zero cost.

We continue to improve our app and hope we can continue our great partnership with Huawei Cloud,” said Haangala Wood. “Covid-19 did hit us, but we are excited to see that more people are looking to e-commerce as their preferred shopping channel.”

It seems that Infinix will be launching its next release of the Note series soon. The company is all set to launch its new Note 8 phone this coming November, and the device will also make its debut in Uganda. We all know that Note devices are all about the large screen, superb performance, and super fast processors. The Infinix Note 8 is likely to possess exactly this!

Infinix Note 8 expected specifications, features

The Infinix Note 8 is said to launch with a 6.95-inch display — with a 20.5:9 screen and dual super tiny camera punch hole. The panel will likely offer support for a fast refresh rate that we shall ascertain once it arrives.

The cited source also claims that the base variant of the upcoming Infinix phone will be 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The phone will also offer a 64-megapixel quad sensor combination to satisfy your photography needs. It will reportedly be paired with a dual 16-megapixel front camera combo. 

Infinix will add MediaTek’s Helio G80 chipset under the hood. The chipset boasts of Hyper Engine Game Technology powering making it incredibly fast and ensuring that the phone provides a comprehensive strong and smooth all-round performance. The chipset will not only make the Note 8 more fluent and more stable, but also deliver an incredible experience for gamers.

We expect the Note 8 to come with fast charging, given a massive 5200mAh battery with super long endurance embedded in it. This should be able to keep the phone going for comparatively longer periods before it runs out of power.

How to check if your passwords are secure on iOS 14

How to check if your passwords are secure on iOS 14

One of the hardest bit about security features is having to convince users to actually utilize them. At least, Apple has steadily added new privacy and security features into iOS 14. We already saw the colored dots in the notification area to show if apps are accessing your camera or microphone. Another addition is the ability to check how secure your password is.

This lets you know if any of the passwords you’ve got stored in your Apple Keychain has been found in a data breach. In the past, this required additional apps or some manual checking, on sites such as haveibeenpwned. Now you can check without any such assistance.

How to check if your passwords are secure on iOS 14

To check if the passwords stored in your Apple Keychain have been breached:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone
  • Scroll down and tap on Passwords 
  • Tap on Security Recommendations
  • Tap on the toggle if Detect Compromised Passwords isn’t on. That page will also show any passwords you have that should be changed.
  • Tap on Change Password on Website to go to the site where you can get iOS to suggest a unique password

This tool will also give you suggestions if you have reused the same credentials on multiple websites, or if you have a password that is easily guessed. That gives you all the tools you need to keep your accounts as secure as possible, so you don’t fall prey to hacks.

Infinix Hot 10 review: Ultimately a Hot device!

Infinix Hot 10 review: Ultimately a Hot device!

It would be safe to say that Infinix has had a wonderful year in the mobile phone business, thanks to the strategic flow of smartphone launches over this year. While we had the Hot 8 device released a year ago, it was rather not expected to have the Hot 9 early this year and the Infinix Hot 10 coming in now.  The new device seeks out a user interested in a powerful smartphone that offers almost everything in one while achievable at a pocket-friendly price.

We gave you a first impressions of the device. Did you get the dose right or you need more. Is the latest member of the Hot family what you’ve been waiting for? Let’s take a look in a brief review of the phone!

Infinix Hot 10 Design

The design language has always been on point, and it is evident that the Hot series speaks it well. The smartphone is built with a Glass front, plastic back, and plastic frame. The dimension of the device is 171.1 x 77.6 x 8.9 mm and it weighs 195 grams. In the Hot 10, you get a uniquely slim device that you can hold firmly all the way. Much of the parts are in place as expected; the fingerprint sensor on the back, as well as the Micro USB port, headphone jack and speaker grille at the bottom.

The smartphone comes with a 6.78 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen and 720 x 1640 pixels resolution. We’ve talked exhaustively about what a large screen can offer and we needn’t mention more. The Infinix Hot 10 display is great when especially with its Infinity-O design. 

infinix hot 10

Hardware

Power and performance are not let down with the new device. It is powered by the Helio G70 processor from MediaTek paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space.  It also features micro USB 2.0, USB On-The-Go. The Hot 10 is equipped with a massive 5200 mAh battery capacity to keep it running throughout the day and even more. Of course, being a mid-ranger, it does not support fast charging. But the long stay while awake is good enough to go with.

Infinix Hot 10 Camera

Photography is a masterclass of late and having the right tools is a must. The Hot 10 smartphone consists of a quad-camera on the rear side that features 16 MP (wide) + 2 MP (macro) + 2 MP (depth) + QVGA (Low light sensor) while on the front there is a single 8 MP (wide) camera. Decent out put is all you can ask for, and this you will get on the device.

Infinix Hot 10 Software

On the software front, the Hot 10 is running Android 10, with XOS 7.0 Dolphin on top. Dolphin brings a number of interesting features on the Infinix devices that are visible. It comes with a quick and intuitive AI that makes tasks easier to work out, and is designed to use RAM efficiently to give your device a faster performance. Did I mention that there are thousands of themes on it?

Other notable features include the dark mode, social turbo to assist with your WhatsApp, gestures, Wi-Fi sharing via QR code, Off-Screen Gaming that lets you minimize the brightness of the screen when busy, and floating message notifications.

Conclusion

So there you have it, a quick review of the Infinix Hot 10! Infinix has definitely made some big changes this time around, both aesthetically and internally. Whether you’re excited about the changes or not, it is obvious that the Hot 10 is a definite buy if you want a smartphone that gives you a whole package.

Infinix Hot 10 Unboxing and first impressions

Infinix Hot 10 Unboxing and first impressions

Over the past half decade, the Infinix Hot series have posed a stiff competition when it comes to devices that point at high-end specifications at a mid-range price tag. With a combination of a superb camera, powerful processor, and big battery, the Hot phones have always been something to look out for on release. And so is the Infinix Hot 10.

Close to a year ago, we unboxed the Hot 8. In between there came the Hot 9 released in the first quarter of 2020, and now we have the Hot 10 on board. Let’s take a look at what it has in stock for us and why you should pick an interest.

What’s inside the box?

The Infinix Hot 10 box is wrapped in a rather familiar green box. When you unwrap it, you’ll find the phone, a USB Cable, a wall adapter for charging, silicon case, screen protector, earphones, as well as a quick guide and warranty card.

infinix hot 10

Infinix Hot 10 first impressions

The Hot 10 is a continuous development of the Hot 9. The 6.6-inch screen we saw on the predecessor is now bigger with a 6.78-inch HD+ Infinity-O display on the 10. This makes it much more appealing when it comes to reading, writing, watching videos, and playing video games. 

In the punch-hole is an 8 megapixel sensor to capture all the selfies, supported by a dual flash light. On the backside is a combination of 4 cameras specified by 16 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP + QVGA sensors. Of course, the trends now point at having a multi-sensor camera phone for perfect photography and we tend to this with the new phone.

infinix hot 10

The Hot 10 is equipped with a massive 5200 mAh battery capacity to keep it running throughout the day and even more. This is much bigger than what we experienced with the previous Hots and we definitely anticipate a much better performance. The phone is super fast and effective. 

The Hot 10 comes in a variety of attractive colors — Obsidian black, amber red, ocean wave, and moonlight jade. Infinix used a special process to make the back side shift colors when viewed at different angles, and we’ve seen this right from the Hot 8.
