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...

Introducing the Huawei Mate 10 Lite – The World’s First Smartphone with Four Cameras

Huawei in recent years has been a name that is quite reminiscent with the words quality and affordability at the same time. Even though the company has a plethora of devices currently available in the market, the two names that have well established themselves in the market are the Huawei “Mate series” and “P series”. These devices have truly been the standout (call it flagship) devices that Huawei has come up with in the last few years. Last year the whole world was talking about the most sleek looking device of 2016, the Mate 9 and the Mate 9 Pro along with the Huawei P10 and the P10 Lite which had revolutionized the smartphone industry especially when it came to image capturing and overall aesthetics. Since Huawei’s affiliation with Leica, the company which truly stands out when it comes to professional photography, the aforementioned brands have been the most successful selling devices so far. Enter 2017, and the company has once again truly out done themselves this time around yet again with the launch of their latest flagship devices, the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and the Huawei Mate 10 Lite.

Have a Look at Pakistan’s First-ever Smartphone Fashion Shoot using the Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Have a Look at Pakistan’s First-ever Smartphone Fashion Shoot using the Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Stop what you’re doing for the country’s first-ever smartphone fashion shoot is here. Ace-photographer and Pakistan’s favourite shutterbug Tapu Javeri went on a breathktaking quest to Skardu to conduct a never-seen-before fashion shoot from a HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro – and boy are we mesmerized by the results!   Tapu Javeri and HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro are a match made in heaven! Tapu chose the picturesque Skardu valley to exude his passion for photography all through the lenses of HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro. Nestled on the confluence of the Indus and Shigar rivers, Skardu is the gateway to mighty mountains, scintillating lakes and wilderness that wears a different colour in every season. It was only fitting for Tapu to choose this location for an avant-garde fashion shoot. Mahi Muse looked ravishing as she posed at the Shigar Cold Desert. The vast stretch of plains among high mountains gave an eclectic mix of landscape and depth to the shoot altogether. The camera on the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro – co-engineered with Leica – captured some candid shots of Mahi dressed in vibrant travel attire through its SUMMILUX-H lenses. Tapu Javeri loved the experience of his HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro and put its 12-megapixel RGB sensor to good use. Things got really exciting when Mahi cuddled up with colourful flowers on a boat on the scenic Upper Kachura Lake. It was a moment worth living, as the boat glided on serene waters of the lake and Tapu took vivid shots through the smartphone. An AI-powered Real-Time Sense and Object Recognition system identified human shots and flower shots adjusting its settings automatically. A village near Upper Kachura Lake also caught Tapu’s wild imagination. Its trees dyed in hues of autumn created an ethereal aura that looked right out of a dream. Hopped on a cycle, Mahi had an angelic glow that HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro’s camera masterfully encapsulated. The camera’s AI-powered Bokeh Effect created brilliant portraits – no less than a DSLR. Not only was Tapu spellbound by the landscape, but was also drawn to the warmth of Skardu’s people. While a group of friends bonded over tea, Tapu memorialized the moment in exquisite monochrome portraits taken through the 20-megapixel Monochrome sensor. The HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro also took some classic bokeh shots that added a unique candidness to the gathering. As night fell on the Lower Kachura Lake and an eerie silence fell over the valley, Tapu indulged himself into another photographic experience. With the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro’s wide aperture of f/1.6, he embalmed a low-lit shot of the lake, as it reflected a shimmering moon on its tranquil surface. To have a look at...

Reviewing the Nokia 5

Reviewing the Nokia 5

Nokia with all the hype created for its Android debut has not disappointed us yet.  Starting from the Nokia 3, then Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the upcoming flagship device the Nokia 8. The devices have withheld the body and the feel of some of their more successful Lumia devices mainly the 1020 and the 950, which is great. Today, our focus is on the mid ranger Nokia 5. Straight out of the bat, the device just looks gorgeous, specially the Tempered Blue version. The device has a 5.2 inch 1280 x 720 HD  polarized display wrapped around an aluminum uni-body.  The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass making the front of the device quite durable to front facing falls.  The display is quite sharp and makes streaming YouTube videos a pleasurable experience. Also, it is quite bright so using it outdoors was never a problem. The finger print scanner is housed on the front on the device which doubles as a home button which I personally do not like, as there were a couple of instances, while unlocking the device, I accidentally kept on opening Google Assistant. which became a bit annoying. The size of the scanner could have been slightly bigger, though understandable why Nokia opted for a smaller sensor, as we live in a world where small to no bezels have started to become a norm. That being said, the sensor is quite decent and works quite well in most cases. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which is strong enough for most apps to work without a hitch, though some graphic intensive games like Injustice 2 did have a bit of lag. This is also due to the fact the device comes with only 2GB RAM, while most of the devices in its category are now housing 3GB. In terms of storage the device comes with 16Gb on board memory, but not to worry too much as it also houses a microSD card slot upto 128GB of storage. The device has a single speaker in the bottom, but is quite loud and holding the phone horizontally does not muzzle the sound at all which is great. Now talking about the camera’s, the Nokia 5 comes with a 13MP primary shooter and an 8MP camera on the front. One of the highlights about this device is that, both the camera’s have auto focus. This means no more blurred out or selfies or groupfies. The camera performs quite well in day light, specially the auto HDR mode helps in making the colors pop. Both cameras are capable of taking videos in Full HD (1920×1080). Macro shots from the...

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

HUAWEI Consumer Business Group, a brand known for putting quality at the forefront of their product development strategy, recently shed light on its quality standards. HUAWEI goes out-of-the-way to ensure that all its products are extremely safe to use and provide the highest quality. Earlier in August 2015, the ambient light sensor (ALS) from ROHM in Awn 4, MateS and Honor 7i had a failure rate of 0.1%. Maintaining HUAWEI’s reputation for quality, all of the smartphones using that batch of sensors were sent back for rework. Even if the ALS fails, the phones can still perform almost all the functions but regardless of the huge cost incurred, HUAWEI still called back all devices. When we talk of HUAWEI – it is the only global brand today, with no record of any exploding-device. HUAWEI has effectively and consistently kept ‘user-safety’ at the forefront of all its operations. No product with even the remotest possibility of posing any health-hazard is ever approved or distributed among the HUAWEI users. Extensive stress-testing is done to ensure maximum safety protocols. “Quality is the integrity and lifeline of Huawei. Huawei employs the craftsmen’s spirit’ to measure its products and ensure zero defects.” said Richard Yu, CEO of HUAWEI’S Consumer Business Group. To ensure the quality of HUAWEI Health App 2.1, it underwent numerous tests by the testing crew. To guarantee the tracking precision, running tests were held in multiple cities. They ran over 1,000km, equivalent to 24 marathons. To guarantee the heigh tracking precision, the crew climbed up and down over 1,200 stories of stairs, equivalent to climbing up the Burj Dubai on foot for 7 times. To guarantee the precision of step count, the testing crew walked over three million steps covering a total distance of over 2,000km, equivalent to walking back and forth for 10 times between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. HUAWEI has also opened the doors to its “Device-Testing facilities”, in order to boost the consumers’ confidence in its products. Consumers can now be sure that maximum quality is ensured through due diligence for each one of their...
