The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

Nokia is a name reminiscent of not just quality but also because of the strong history that is attached with the brand itself. Through out the years, we have seen the Finnish Cellular giants come up with a vast variety of devices that resonate with users of every generation. Even today, people from all walks of life are using a Nokia device whether its their ever renowned range of feature phones, the (now discontinued) Windows Phones or the latest range of Android devices. The year 2017 proved to be a historical year for the company as they FINALLY decided to launch their first ever range of devices running on Android. In association with HMD Global,  the initial devices that were launched were the mid range models comprising of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6. This was later followed by the launch of their first flagship device the Nokia 8, a premium phone having all the oomph and style that you can expect from a Nokia device. Today we take a closer look at what Nokia has to offer in its flagship device of 2017. It’s been more than a month now since we got our hands on this beauty which indeed is a eye catcher for someone who sees it and especially holds in their hands for the first time. The Nokia 8 comes wrapped in an aluminium unibody design with metal edges, but while the back is metal too, the feel on the rear will depend on which finish you opt for. The device comes in different color and texture variants. There are steel and tempered blue colors, but both of these have a matt finish, and look a little bit lackluster when put next to the shiny copper and blue options. We are using the polished blue variant which by far is the best looking option available. You would definitely be needing a  cover for the device as at times it  gets quite slippery in the hands and is also prone to scratches.   Let us now look at the main attraction of the Nokia 8 which is the camera. Like most previous flagship devices that Nokia have produced, the major focus always remains on two things, aesthetics and the amazing cameras. The company hasn’t disappointed us this time as well in this regard. The Nokia 8 sports dual 13 MP rear cameras with Carl Zeiss Optics and a powerful 13 MP front facing camera for all you selfie lovers out there. One of the unique features of the Nokia 8 is “Bothie” which as the name implies, gives you the option to capture images using both the front...

Google launches Datally, an app that saves you data

Google launches Datally, an app that saves you data

Today Google announced Datally, a smart and simple Android app that helps smartphone users understand, control, and save mobile data. Datally works on all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, and is available today on the Google Play Store globally. Datally helps solve one of the biggest pain points for smartphone users around the world — worries about data usage. Google found during extensive user research around the world that many smartphone users worry about running out of data. This is an especially acute problem for the newest generation to come online, known as the “Next Billion Users.” Not only are these smartphone users constantly thinking about data balances, but they do not understand where their data is going, nor do they feel in control over allocating data to the apps they really care about. Datally empowers users to solve these problems with four key features: Data Saver. Apps frequently use data in the background for updating content and information. Datally’s Data Saverfeature lets users control data on an app-by-app basis, so that data only goes to apps they care about. People testing the app saved up to 30% of mobile data, depending on the way they used Datally. Data Saver bubble. Once Data Saver is turned on, Datally’s Data Saver bubble will appear when a user goes into an app that is allowed to use data. Whenever that app uses data, the Data Saver bubble will show the current rate of data usage, and users can easily choose to block that app’s data use if things start to get out of control. The Data Saver bubble is like a speedometer for mobile data. Personalized alerts. Datally alerts users when apps start consuming a lot of data, and it allows them to see how much data they’ve used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Wi-Fi finder. There are also times when users want to use more data than they have on their mobile plans, such as when they want to watch HD videos. Public Wi-Fi is an important access point for high-bandwidth connectivity, so Datally’s Find Wi-Fi feature reveals the networks nearby, rated by the Datally community. Once connected, users can rate the Wi-Fi networks themselves based on their own experience. For more information visit the Datally website: datally.google.com. Download Link: Datally for...
