5 Features we love about the Tecno Camon 15

5 Features we love about the Tecno Camon 15

Smartphone holders are always sure of one thing, the device you hold has a better and much more beautiful version in the making. Every turn of the year, we get fresh iterations of phones that offer new features and developments. And the Camon series from Tecno got us the Camon 15 this year.

We’ve had the device for sometime now, and really enjoyed how much it has to offer. At an affordable price, you get to experience a lot more that you could hope for in a mid-range phone. In case you have not, read through the first impressions we got of the device and know what it feels like holding it for a week.

Otherwise, let’s take you through the 5 features we’ve found interesting about the Tecno Camon 15.

One: The camera

The Camon is a Camera smartphone series, and any ardent follower will tell you how impressive this is. When you buy a phone just for its camera, it means you are going to sink in photography. Of course, it takes passion and time to perfect!

The Camon 15 builds on its predecessors’ mission to come with four sharp shooters on its back. A combination of 48MP+2MP+2MP+QVGA sensors gives you almost all that you ought to have in a phone of its kind. Yes, almost because your neighbour will bring you their device shooting somewhat better images, without telling you it costs more than the Camon 15.

The 16MP sensor on the front is equally good at close shots and group selfies. The various modes and tweaks available for you to experiment for fine output make the phone even more productive. It’s worth the wait and your try as well.

Two: The speed

The Camon 15 is built for camera needs, but one key specification that Tecno has improved in the series is the performance. As you use the device, you can feel just how fast it runs – yet without extinguishing any energy as such. This is practically credited to the 4GB RAM that the standard version of the phone comes with. That’s not all, its coupled with the Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 chip, an accommodating LCD screen, as well as an Adreno 610 GPU.

The Camon 15 is fast enough to let you do all your live streaming, playing games (both online and offline), downloading files,  and any activity that you’d wish to get done in minutes. You won’t have to wait!

Three: The software

The Camon 15 arrives with the Android 10, alongside HiOS v.6.0.1, to keep all your apps flying.  There are some really innovative additions to the phone. These include the Social Turbo with a WhatsApp Assistant Box that lets you build your own Emojis, save present WhatsApp status, among others.

There’s a new Dark Theme that saves energy and extends battery life effectively. Did we tell you about the gesture navigation and gesture phone pick up features? Also, while playing games or watching videos, WhatsApp and Messenger messages pop-up as notifications. There is no need to stop and check your message.

Four: The battery

If you have the 3 above, you can only pray for one more thing – a reliable battery. And that’s what the Tecno Camon 15 comes with, a strong 5000mAh non-removal powerhorse! You’ve probably had this over and over again but such a muscle is a big point that Tecno has mastered for its smartphones and it keeps them going. With a battery that can go on to the next day, you can order for your next drink to enjoy the Camon!

Five: The Tecno Camon 15 build

Beyond the camera and performance, the phone’s build is equally excellent. The security bit is taken care of very well with Face Unlock which automatically detects your closed eyes, as well as the fingerprint scanner on the back. The handset also comes with a parental control setting. You can restrict the content and for how long your child can view on the device.

The Tecno Camon 15 is amazing!

Tecno Camon 15 Full Review

Tecno Camon 15 Full Review

Tecno has once again raised the bar for what consumers should expect from a mid-range premium smartphone with its new Camon 15 series devices. With prices starting at just UGX 688,000, you can expect a really powerful 4G device with a fast and fluid display.

Today we’re reviewing the standard Camon 15, whose highlight feature is an impressive-looking 48-megapixel camera that’s capable of 8x optical zoom. This style of camera sensors have so far been used in more expensive Android phones, but with the Camon 15, Tecno is bringing this tech to the mid-range customer base that wishes for perfection at an appealing price tag.

Simply looking at the specifications and price, the Tecno Camon 15 would definitely pass for a great all-rounder. Is it a better option than other similarly priced smartphones on the market? Let’s find out.

Tecno Camon 15 cameras: Great any day, any time

The one thing you can always count on a Camon smartphone is its camera. The Camon 15 features a four-sensor array at the back; highlighted by the 48-megapixel sensor, which allows it to achieve an 8x optical zoom. The other three cameras are not really specified in terms of their abilities but we believe they are two 2MP sensors and one QVGA to support the primary.

Without discrediting the maximum of 8x magnification, the true optical zoom level seems to be about 2.5x. This is where you can take perfect distant photography without fainting the image. Of course you get to enjoy some of the impressive settings such as Exposure compensation and ISO control, but might need to perfect them for satisfying results.

The Camon 15 camera, surprisingly, didn’t manage very good quality low-light images without the Super Night mode that Tecno added to the camera app. The Super Night mode works for those that love capturing videography in dark environments, and it helps capture better details. I wasn’t able to capture any night photos as such due to inconveniences, but I believe it does work, with proper setup.  

The camera really shines when shooting during the day. It manages to keep up and capture all the details and colours. If you are a fan of close-up shots, this one got you firmly! Take a look at one of those we captured quite well.

Tecno Camon 15 Camera samples

The Tecno Camon 15 captures selfies at the full 16-megapixel resolution that it is meant to. You can be perfect-sure to get the results on a day-time shot.

Overall, the camera upgrade in the Camon 15 is very good, provided you shoot mainly in daylight and at up to reasonable magnification levels. We believe the expanded Super Night mode too does wonders, and can be of help if you rely on this phone for your photography needs.  

Tecno Camon 15 performance

Tecno has always ensured that the performance of its smartphones is impressive. We’re happy to report that the Camon 15 feels speedy in use. This particular device in review is the 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage.

Tecno chose to go with an LCD display instead of an AMOLED one, probably because the former has proven to be efficient when it comes to device speed. The close-to 6.6-inch full-HD+ LCD panel is quite good, with strong colours. However, if you are one that is not into speed, a slower AMOLED display would be a better offering for more vibrant colours and better contrast at lower brightness levels.

tecno camon 15

The brightness levels of this particular Camon need to be high to enjoy your view to the maximum. When using this phone indoors at medium to low brightness, the screen feels a little dull.  

The Camon 15 has a fingerprint sensor on the back side, which works well with just a light tap. There’s also a face unlock feature which is equally quick. The phone comes with a nice and loud speaker that ensures your audio needs are taken care of.

HiOS version 6, based Android 10, runs very well on the Camon 15. I noticed the same shortcuts that we’ve seen in other past Tecno phones. Gaming performance is excellent. The phone can easily handle demanding games from the Google Play store. Of course, after prolonged gameplay, the device gets warmer but never did we experience any unbearable heat.

You can use two Nano-SIM cards in the Camon 15 at the same time, plus there’s a microSD card slot for expanding the internal storage. You also get the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, sensors and navigation systems. Battery life was solid, and even with heavy usage, I was able to comfortably use the Camon 15 for an entire day before needing to charge it. The 5000mAh battery is impressive, considering the fast chip in the phone and fluid display.  

Tecno Camon 15 design

I’ve kept this section for the very end because there’s not a lot that’s new here. The overall design of the Camon 15 is what the Spark 5 gave us, just that this is a bigger and somehow much better device. We can’t deny the fact that it is indeed a unique and quality finish done on the back of the phone. The back feels great to the touch, coming with a smooth matte finish.  

tecno camon 15 cameras

Verdict: Should you buy the Camon 15?

If you’ve made it this far, you probably know by now that the Camon 15 is indeed a good all-rounder. The standard variant is priced at UGX 688,000 for 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the Premier variant costs UGX 1,025,000 for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Both variants of the phone offer value considering all the features they pack in.

Some of this phone’s strong points include the fluid display, excellent battery life, strong performance, and the impressive camera. The screen lighting is still a bit weak, and we do think the design should have been much more original than what we get but never the less, it’s a wonderful device.

 

The Camon 15 overlaps with the Camon 12 a bit, but rather than replace it, I think there’s enough reason for both to coexist. Ultimately, it all depends on what you want from your smartphone. As long as your interest is in having a camera smartphone, the Camon 15 is the best choice to have on the market today!

Screen: 6.6 inches
Camera: 48MP+2MP+2MP+QVGA on the rear, 16MP on the front
Memory: 64GB+4GB in terms of ROM + RAM respectively
OS: Android 10, alongside HiOS v.6.0.1
Battery: 5000mAh
Chip: Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22

The Camon 15 costs UGX 688,000 and it is available countrywide in TECNO branded shops and MTN Service Centres near you. All customers that purchase Camon 15 get Free 3GB internet data every month for three months and 100% data bonus on every data bundle purchased.

How to set Dark Theme for Google Docs on Android

How to set Dark Theme for Google Docs on Android

Google is enhancing its Docs, Sheets, and Slides on Android with Dark theme support. The company says the dark theme will ‘intelligently adjust the product interface and user-generated content in ways that can make it more usable in low-light environments and save battery life’.

Basically, the company wants you to change your theme setting to make it easier for you to view documents, presentations, and spreadsheets on your mobile device. You can use the dark theme setting to help save battery life. Interestingly, any other collaborators can’t see the theme you choose. 

If your Android phone system is set to use a dark theme, the settings for Docs, Sheets, and Slides will adjust automatically. You can also turn dark mode on or off for Docs, Sheets, or Slides independently. If you do this, each app will always be in the selected theme regardless of the Android system settings.

How to set Dark Theme for Google Docs on Android

To enable the dark theme independently in the Docs, Sheets, or Slides apps, go to Menu, then to Settings. Select Theme, and then choose Dark in each app. When using Dark theme, you can preview your current document or sheet in the Light theme by going to More, then select View in light theme.

itel unveiling the P36 in Uganda. Here’s what we expect

itel unveiling the P36 in Uganda. Here’s what we expect

When was the last time you heard of an itel P-series phone in release? It should have been the P33, released last year that took over the throne of itel’s power smartphone line. Well, the latest we know is that the phone manufacturer is all set to unveil its latest smartphone in Uganda – the itel P36.

The P-series under the brand have a rank on the market for the well-built battery feature they come with, that keeps your phone moving to the next day with maximum activity. The P36 is likely to offer even more, because it possesses a beautiful design just like any upgrade to the predecessor would be.

From the markets in which it is already launched, the phone is nicknamed “the real king of battery” and is likely to come with a massive 5000mAh battery and an AI-Power Master software to assist you in optimising the battery for longer operation.

With it, one is basically able to watch as much video as one can afford, let alone having the phone up for more than 2 days of usage – Insane!

And guess what? itel this time added a fast charge feature to the phone line up to ensure that you don’t just get enough battery, but also get it faster than usual.

What to expect from the itel P36

Smartphones today seem to call for large screens, and the P36 is not an exception. It is expected to come with a huge 6.5-inch and above display with a notched screen. We expect this to support Face unlock, with of course the traditional fingerprint sensor at the back for all the security needs.

Expect a dual camera on the rear –  coming in a rather unique format we’ve never seen on an itel phone, the undisputed big battery known of the P-series, a sharp selfie camera, and an entirely new software build. This is the image we have of the forthcoming itel P36.

We’d wish to see if a super-fast processor is on the inside and how interesting it is to get to hold the new device.

We shall keep you posted.

Tecno Camon 15 First Impressions

Tecno Camon 15 First Impressions

The new Tecno Camon 15 series offer an ultimate flagship smartphone experience, with a key focus on the cameras, while keeping the pricing as precise as possible. The company announced the Camon 15, Camon 15 Air, as well as the Camon 15 Premier smartphones. Today, we’ll take a quick first look at the standard Camon 15.

The phone comes wrapped in a blue box definitive of the brand. When you unwrap it, you’ll find the phone, charger head, a transparent phone case, earphones, micro USB charger, glass screen protector, and a few documentation guiding you on how to use the phone.

tecno camon 15

The Tecno Camon 15 boasts of a unique four-array rear camera line up, highlighted by a 48-megapixel sensor, which we’ve usually seen in phones that cost a lot more. There are also plenty of other flagship-level features such as a large and decent display, fast RAM and storage, a powerful processor, and fast charging.

We start with the design. Just like with the Spark 5, the Camon 15 follows similar design principles when it comes to the display – coming with a punch-hole camera in the 6.6-inch screen that both phones possess, with a full-HD+ 720*1600 resolution. Of course, each of these models has a slightly different finish or design. Tecno sent me the Fascinating Purple colour of the Camon 15, which I have found really good looking. The back is really designed beautifully and I must say it is worth the wait.

The build quality does not disappoint, with the phone’s rounded corners and edges making it comfortable to hold. The buttons are right in place, with the fingerprint sensor on the back performing as expected.

In the little time I spent using the Camon 15, I saw that the display can get really bright with interesting colouring. However, the brightness level needs to be pushed quite high to enjoy your view to the maximum. When using this phone indoors at medium to low brightness, the screen feels a little dull. You can choose to unset the brightness auto-feature.

The company’s HiOS feels really fluid thanks to the support from Android 10, and we are experimenting its efficiency with games as well, so watch out for the full review, coming soon. Of course, you have to give credit to the processor.

The Camon 15 is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 processor that features the Cortex-A53 CPU. So far, the chipset has been performing well and there are no complaints of any heating problems, but we’ll have the final report about this in the full review.

The standard variant, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, is powered by a 5000mAh non-removable battery, and the inbuilt storage can be expanded via microSD card with a dedicated slot.  You also get dual-SIM support.

Let’s get to the main party of the Camon 15 — the camera. Like we’ve said earlier, the overall camera setup is similar to what you get on the Tecno Spark 5, with the main change being the primary camera sensor. The Camon 15 has a 48-megapixel sensor with a significantly wider lens. It is capable of an impressive 8x optical zoom, and can go all the way to give you superb photography to keep you shooting.

The other rear cameras are a couple of two 2-megapixel primary cameras, and a QVGA macro camera. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel camera that shines out with a flash just at the bridge of the upper bezels.

Tecno has also added new features in the camera app. There is an interesting Super Night mode that lets you capture all the moments regardless of the time.

OS: Android 10, alongside HiOS v.6.0.1
Battery: 5000mAh
Chip: Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22

Looking forward

The Tecno Camon 15 starts from UGX 688,000, which is a very fair price when you consider the entire package on offer. We will be testing its cameras, battery life, and overall performance further over the next few days, so stay tuned for the full review.

5 ways to earn and save money with the Chipper Cash app

5 ways to earn and save money with the Chipper Cash app

Making transactions and exchanging cash over an app is by far one of the most powerful technological developments to-date. You don’t have to move distances to make monetary transfers. No, you don’t! With tools like the Chipper Cash app, you just have to make a few taps and swipes.

The cross-border money transfer platform has some key points that stand out, and these are proof for the need to have it on your phone. You can get it from the Play Store for Android users or the App Store for iPhone holders.

Once you have it on, these are the 5 features that you should not miss.

Send money for free

One of the limitations to the adoption of mobile money transfer in Uganda, and Africa at large, is the rather high charges imposed on peer-to-peer transactions by service providers – especially the telcos. It becomes a burden to send money to someone and then having to part with an amount as a charge for this. Chipper Cash does away with this!

chipper cash app

On the app, you can instantly load money from either Airtel Money or MTN Mobile Money, send and receive money without any costs incurred by both the sender and receiver; Plus, get to transfer the money received to your Airtel Money or MTN Mobile money wallet. It’s all completely FREE.

The only charge you incur is when withdrawing at the agent point by the telecom service provider.

Request money from friends

You could be having trouble asking your friend to pay you back the amount they owe you, or asking them to lend you an amount you plan on paying back later. Well, you can use the Chipper Cash app to request money from them.

You simply tap the Request option and selecting the contact to send you money plus the reason for this. On their side, they will receive a notification asking them to approve the transaction, after which you can receive the money if positively considered.

Get cashback on airtime purchase

You don’t have to get concerned about low airtime balances when you have something available on your Chipper cash app. In just a few steps, you can easily purchase airtime for any network and even get a 2% cashback to your account balance. How about that?

Get paid for referrals

Don’t be broke, when there is an opportunity to get rewarded for adding your friends and colleagues to the Chipper Cash family. As long as they can accept, you can earn from inviting your friends to the platform. Once they verify their account, top-up and send at least UGX 3,000, you both get the same amount into your accounts. To earn, click on this link here to download the app or go to the Earn option at the bottom of the app, and enter the referral code SautiTech.

chipper cash

Cross-border money transfers

The Chipper Cash app allows you to exchange funds with any of your friends in Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, Rwanda, and Tanzania. A sender from any of these countries can send you any amount and it is free of charge.

You can receive money from them in any currency, and the app will automatically exchange it into your currency of choice without you visiting a forex bureau. You can then cash out from any Airtel Money or MTN Mobile Money agent near you.

Selfie sticks are supposed to be portable. This particular tripod is fold-able to fit in the pocket or bag when in traveling.

Most downloaded apps and games in 2020 so far

Most downloaded apps and games in 2020 so far

Thanks to COVID-19, a number of us have found much more use in our smartphones and gadgets at home. Because of the virus’ impact on user behaviour, both mobile app and game revenue and downloads this year have grown significantly compared to the past.

In its half year Store Intelligence report, Sensor Tower has listed the most downloaded apps and games since the start of 2020. The period has seen a steady rise in apps and games consumer spending and downloads.

Most downloaded apps in 2020 so far

Across both the App Store and Google Play, TikTok has been the most downloaded app at 626 million installs in the first half of 2020 alone. WhatsApp comes in at number 2 and Zoom in third, while Facebook and Instagram follow in at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

Most downloaded apps in 2020 so far

The site reports over 53.2 billion first-time app installs from Google Play, something more than the 41.8 billion in the same period in 2019. Notably, the number of downloads from Google’s platform was nearly three times higher than those on the App Store.

Most downloaded games in 2020 so far

Tencent’s PUBG Mobile tops the list, with Garena’s Garena Free Fire coming in at No. 2. Ruby Game Studio’s Hunter Assassin, Eyewind Limited’s Brain Out, and Playrix’s Gardenscapes take the other positions in the top 5.

How to recover your lost PC file using Windows File Recovery

How to recover your lost PC file using Windows File Recovery

Losing a file stored on your PC can be stressing, because with it comes the urgency of recovery. In the event that you had a backup of the same, your worries could be less, but losing the backup as well is another horror. Good news is, there is still a chance you can restore them. 

Windows has launched a solution in the Windows File Recovery, a command line app from the Microsoft Store. You can use the app to try to recover lost files that have been deleted from your local storage devices including internal drives, external drives, and USB devices, and can’t be restored from the Recycle Bin.

How to recover your lost PC file using Windows File Recovery

You need to ensure that you avoid using the computer when using the app so as to increase your chances of recovering a file. This is because any use of your computer can create files, which may over-write the free space left by the lost file.

Another point to note is that file recovery on cloud storage and network file shares is not supported by this process.

So, with the above in check, you can download the Windows File Recovery app for free from the Microsoft Store HERE. The app works on Windows 10 2004 or later, so ensure that you have it before you install it. Go on to launch it after successful downloading.

Then, press the Windows key, enter Windows File Recovery in the search box, and then select Windows File Recovery. When you are prompted to allow the app to make changes to your device, select Yes.

A Command Prompt window opens, and in it enter the command in the following format:

winfr source-drive: destination-drive: [/switches]

You need to ensure that the source and destination drives are different. When recovering from the operating system drive (often C: ), use the /n <filter> and /y:<type<(s)> switches to specify the user files or folder.
Microsoft automatically creates a recovery folder for you called, Recovery_<date and time> on the destination drive.

There are three modes you can use to recover files: Default, Segment, and Signature.

Default mode

Default mode mode uses the Master File Table (MFT) to locate lost files. It works well when the MFT and file segments, also called File Record Segments (FRS), are present.

In Default mode, here’s how to:

Recover a specific file from your C: drive to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

winfr C: E: /nUsers<username>DocumentsExample.docx

Recover jpeg and png photos from your Pictures folder to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

winfr C: E: /n Users<username>Picturesexample.JPEG OR /nUsers<username>Picturesexample.PNG

Recover your Documents folder from your C: drive to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

winfr C: E: /n Users<username>Documents

Segment mode

This mode does not require the MFT but does require segments. Segments are summaries of file information that NTFS stores in the MFT such as name, date, size, type and the cluster/allocation unit index.

In Segment mode, here’s how to:

Recover PDF and Word files from your C: drive to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

winfr C: E: /r /n example.pdf OR  /n example.docx

Recover any file with the string “invoice” in the filename by using wildcard characters.

winfr C: E: /r /n *invoice*

Signature mode

This mode only requires that the data is present and searches for specific file types. It doesn’t work for small files. To recover a file on an external storage device, such as a USB drive, you can only use Signature mode.

When using signature mode, it’s helpful to first see the supported extension groups and corresponding file types.

 winfr /#

In Signature mode, here’s how to:

Recover JPEG (jpg, jpeg, jpe, jif, jfif, jfi) and PNG photos from your C: drive to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

  winfr C: E: /x /y:JPEG,PNG

Recover ZIP files (zip, docx, xlsx, ptpx, and so on) from your C: drive to the recovery folder on an E: drive.

winfr C: E:RecoveryTest /x /y:ZIP

When you are prompted for confirmation to continue, enter Y to start the recovery operation.

Depending on the size of your source drive, this may take a while.

To stop the recovery process, press Ctrl+C.

Deciding which mode to use

The following table can help you decide which mode to use. It is recommended to start with the default mode if you are not sure of which to use.

  File System Circumstances Recommended mode
  NTFS Deleted recently Default
  Deleted a while ago First try Segment, then Signature
  After formatting a disk
  A corrupted disk
  FAT, exFAT, ReFS Recovery file type is supported (See following table) Signature

Still unable to recover the file?

If you used default or segment mode, try again in signature mode if the file type is supported. It’s possible that the free space was over-written, especially on a solid state drive (SSD). If you need help, contact your administrator.

Infinix Note 7 Review: Arguably the best Infinix Note ever

Infinix Note 7 Review: Arguably the best Infinix Note ever

Infinix recently launched the Note 7, its latest mid-range Android smartphone. Much as the previous versions have been a competition for a number of mid-rangers on the market, this year’s release is a unique offering. It tries to define exactly what one expects of a NOTE smartphone with interesting and perhaps surprising features on the phone.

We did take a look at the first impressions (HERE) and also the reasons why you should upgrade from the Note 6 (HERE). This post is a review of the phone entirely – though the disclaimer is that we have used the phone for barely a week after its launch. 

The highlight features of the new Note 7 include a strangely powerful camera, big display, large battery and XOS experience that we’ve come to expect from Infinix devices. Priced from UGX 655,000 in Uganda, let’s see if the Note 7 has enough performance and features to make it worth recommending.

Infinix Note 7 design: Style and Uniqueness

The large size of the Note 7 is immediately apparent, as soon as you take it out of the box. Unlike last year’s Note 6, the 7 comes with a lot less bezels – something we’ve always wanted from the series. There are some changes from the predecessors that many would believe were bets on how receptive the audience will be.  

Notes are about writing and swiping. Infinix had got us used to the X-Pen with which you can scribble anything on the phone. But probably the device made the phone unnecessarily bulky and thus the company chose to drop it. You won’t see the X-Pen on this one!

The phone however, comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor to help you keep it and its content secure from trespassers. Did you see that coming? Neither did we! Now, on the back – where the fingerprint sensor should have been, there are four cameras in a round shape. Again, did you see this coming? Elsewhere, there is also a Micro-USB port at the bottom in between an audio jack and grill speakers. 

Overall, the Note 7 has a clean and simple design, which I like.

The display is a big 6.9-inch IPS LCD Infinity-O screen with an HD+ resolution of 720×1640 pixels. It boasts of a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. Typically, this low resolution is not ideal for such a large screen, due to which text and icons don’t look very sharp.

Infinix Note 7 performance: Superb!

The performance of the device is managed by the new MediaTek Helio G70 chipset which rests over an octa-core processor clocking at a speed of 2GHz. This makes it quite impressive and much more feels fluid when in use. The device also boasts of an entire 6GB of RAM paired with Mali-G52 graphics to give you a lag-free environment and add a gaming ability to it.

The Note 7’s general performance is decent and good to take home any day. The phone is runs on the ‘nice’ Android 10, which rather feels nothing for someone used to the XOS skin. This particular Note comes with XOS 6.0 and there’s quite a lot to enjoy from it. Something new to get excited about is the new gestural navigation that gives you an effortless display experience when using the phone. You just swipe the moments away! Or, for instance when you receive a call, you can draw the V-gesture in the air to answer and hover your Palm above the screen to reject.

The fingerprint sensor works well and is quick to unlock the phone when needed. There’s also an option to unlock it with your face. You take what you wish for!

Something I hadn’t tried out is the Live Transcribe feature. The feature helps you communicate in the moment by turning your words into text. Interesting, isn’t it?

Infinix Note 7 battery: Impressive!

Let’s talk battery, we know Infinix for equipping its phones with really good power. The Note 7 device carries a 5,000 mAh Li-polymer type battery. This features super-fast charging ability v3.0, re-filling at the speed of 18W. So, you can consume your power at ease with confidence that you will retrieve it back in no time when charging.

Infinix Note 7 cameras: Yes!

Infinix pushed the bar higher with the Note 7, delivering it with 4 rear cameras and a whole new design to encompass them. These include a primary 48MP sensor, two secondary 2MP sensors, plus a super low light video camera with Quad-flash light.

There’s a 16-megapixel selfie camera in the punch hole right in the large screen. There are quite a number of impressive features that you get to play with on the Note 7 including the exposure compensation, ISO control, continuous shooting, high dynamic range mode (HDR), digital zoom, and face detection.

The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure the HDR option is set to Auto, as it’s off by default. During the day, the Note 7 gives some well-exposed shots with perfect colours and details. You can also give close-up shots a try for satisfaction and natural depth.

And at night? The perfection goes on! The cameras are powered by advanced AI Image Stabilisation which lets the Night mode freely shoot blur-free and focused handheld photos in low-light.

Verdict: Is the Infinix Note 7 right for you?

Priced from UGX 655,000, the Note 7 offers good amounts of RAM and storage, which not many others do. I really like the simple design, large display, good battery life and no-nonsense take on software. The cameras is functional though you need to have good stability for perfect shots. The processor also feels great for gaming or doing anything intensive. The screen display disappoints a bit but we can let that be!
