OPPO N3 - World's First phone with motorised swivel camera

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The smartphone market is changing faster than ever and to keep up, the manufacturers are working overtime to come up with the best. We have seen lot of new innovations in the past couple of years and this has resulted in the introduction of some really very smart features in mobile devices. We recently saw Oppo announce the N3 which comes with a motorised swivelling camera along with other features like hybrid fingerprint scanner. With this new feature, they try to take the camera features a step further and also give the selfie lovers something to be happy about. This device also comes with a mini remote too, like something that you would use with your DSLR to release the shutter. With all these features, the Oppo N3 looks like a promising device and we take a closer look at this device and all the smart features it offers.
OPPO N3

Design and built

The device look big and it actually is. There is no way you can have a 5.5 inch display on a small device. The dimensions aren’t small by any standards. It is 161 mm tall, 77 mm wide and 9.9 mm thick. It is also quite heavy, tipping the scale at 192 Gms. The device feels bulkier compared to the Galaxy Note 4 or LG G3. Still the device is smaller than the Oppo N1 which was too big to be practical. The phone has got a swivel camera on the top so the components that usually sit there are moved to other spots. The micro USB port is present on the left side and the headphone jack is on the right. While the device has been made out of plastic, it gets a steel frame running around it which gives it a solid feel and also helps with the grip. The back is smooth and nice to touch. Thankfully the back isn’t glossy so you won’t see smudge marks all over it. You will find a shiny fingerprint scanner on the back near the logo. Near the bottom you will find the LED notification light bar that we saw on the Oppo Find 7 or maybe on the Xperia SP.

Display

Recently various manufacturers decided that full HD is not enough for mobile phones and they should go for 2K resolution. Even Oppo came with device with 2K display but thankfully they have adhered to full HD here. Even with a 5.5 inch display, you get a pixel density of over 400 ppi which is more than enough. You need superhuman eyes to spot the difference in sharpness between this display and LG G3’s display. The display is pretty good with impressive viewing angles and natural colours. The saturation could have been a bit better though. This is an IPS LCD display so the blacks are obviously not as good as the Note 4. The display comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection to save it against minor scratches and mild drops.

Hardware

The Oppo N3 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with the quad core processor running at 2.3 GHz. This chipset can actually support higher clock speeds but for some reason, they have decided to go for 2.3 GHz. Still pretty good. You get 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU. The hardware is reasonably powerful to ensure that the device doesn’t break a sweat in processing and you always have a lot of power at your disposal. You get 32 GB of internal storage and you can also add a micro SD card so it shouldn’t be a concern for anyone. It is powered by a 3000 mAh battery which is reasonably powerful for such a device. It also gets fast charging capabilities for when you need to charge up your device quickly. The device comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear. Thankfully it isn’t like the scanner you find on Samsung devices that would require a swipe. It is a simple button that would scan the finger when you press it which makes it far more convenient. It makes the operation much easier as the power key has been placed on left side of the device. You can add multiple fingerprints to unlock the device and also restrict the other users from complete access to your data.

Camera

Of course this is the highlight of this device. The rotating camera on top of the device and that too a motorized one. It allows the lens to rotate 206 degrees which is actually more than what we expected. The camera has a 16 megapixel sensor and the pixel size is larger than the usual crop of mobile phone cameras. The camera software is similar to what you would find on most Oppo device except for a couple of additions. There is a manual mode which you can use to manually adjust the focus and obtain some impressive results. The image quality is pretty impressive from the camera.
With this device, you get the O Click accessory. It is a small remote control with 5 button construction and allows you to control various functions but most importantly the camera. You can release the camera shutter using this remote. It would also allow you to control the angle of rotating camera. It could be of great use when you are trying to put the device somewhere and shoot a panorama. Overall they have done a really good job with the camera and this O Click.

Verdict

It is really great to see devices where the manufactures have tried to go beyond the tradition and do something different with the product. The Oppo N3 is one such device and judging by what has turned up so far, they have done a pretty good job. It is a considerable improvement over the previous devices that we saw from the manufacturer. The rotating camera, fingerprint scanner and remote control are really nice additions. The device is a strong contender against the top players in the market.

July has ended as well and it will be unlikely that trade market will view the Prime release for Grand. Rumours are holding that the Galaxy Prime is because of be announced sometime in December.

A world-wide statement, but, is uncertain as there are rumors that a working image or alpha build is difficult to go make of. Getting to increase the test size to reflect the QHD showing, Samsung has had trouble building the.

Samsung is also reportedly having difficulties producing the metal cases during the telephone substance only a limited number of phones will receive built. The limitation might even make the Galaxy Prime a South Korean sole release.


A definite release date is unknown but there are speculations whereas the phone will definitely come out this year, in one shape or other.

How to Easily Backup Android to the Cloud

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Sunday, January 12, 2014
Despite all the safety measures, theft prevention software and the overall reliability of the Android platform, you can never be completely sure that your phone (or tablet) won’t go berserk at one point, or simply stop working. If something like that was to happen, you would lose all your valuable data that you had stored on the device, including your photos, important text messages and the like. That’s why it may be a good idea to every once in a while backup the data that you want to keep.


There are numerous ways to do this, and you can even chose to backup the data locally, on the hard drive o your PC, but backing it up in the cloud allows you to later easily retrieve the data from another device, or access it from multiple devices, without having to have access to your PC in order to do so.

Google Account

One of the more convenient things about being able to create your profile on Google is that you can easily save the data from your Android device to the cloud. This includes everything from your bookmarks to email, calendar, apps and contacts. The option to do this is under the settings tab on your device. Go to Settings and then Privacy and you’ll see the option to backup your settings and enable automatic restore.

Naturally, make sure that you are backing up the right account, as you’ll be given the option of backing up any account that you may have. Following that, you should go to Account and Sync tab, also under Settings, and check all the options that are offered there, and just like that, most of your data is safe in the cloud.

SMS Backup +

This app doesn’t come with Android so you’ll have to download it, but it’s completely free, so this shouldn’t be a problem. Once you install the app you can use it to easily send all your text message threads to your Gmail account, where they will be sorted under SMS tab.

You can do the same for your call log entries and MMS messages, but while you can restore log entries and text messages to your phone, you are not given the same option with MMS, but this shouldn’t be too much of a problem for a majority of users, and might get addressed in one of the future incarnations of the app.

Google Instant Upload

If you are running at least Android 2.2 or a newer version, your phone came with this service. Basically, once you enable it, all the images or videos that you take are instantly uploaded to your Google+ account. The album will be named ‘From the phone’, and is completely private, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else seeing your media, unless you later decide to make it public. You should get the option of enabling this service the first time that you sign up, but if you didn't or you want to do it later, you can find the option in Menu/Settings.

How to spy on calls, SMS, and Location of a phone

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Friday, November 01, 2013

Cell phone tracking is a relatively new breakthrough in information technology, bridging the gap between Hollywood films and real life. Although the same grandiose features and easy access as present in motion pictures have not been achieved yet, this technology has progressed a great deal in recent years and is increasing in popularity every day.

The applications of cell phone tracking are too numerous to mention. This goes more so for parents wanting to keep an eye on their teenagers, or for employers who need to monitor their staff’s activities during work hours. At times there are no alternatives to this ‘invasion of privacy’, which appears to be quite reasonable and in fact necessary given its dire need in modern times.

Spy apps are available for phones working on any of the leading mobile operating systems such as Android, Apple, BlackBerry, Symbian or Windows Mobile. In order to track another cell phone’s activity, one simply has to install a spy app to the target phone. The app will become undetectable as soon as the installation is complete and will continue to run in the background mode. It will record the phone’s information, including text messages, call logs, e-mails, browsing history and even GPS locations, unbeknownst to the phone user. All the information will be uploaded to a secured server via cell phone internet or Wi-Fi. The records will be available even if the original information is deleted from the phone later on.

These features can be of immense benefit. Employers, for instance, can keep tabs on their faculty, e.g. staff members can be found idling during office hours, or texting on their cell phones, playing games or browsing websites at random. By tracking their smartphone activities, business managers can make sure their employees are maximizing their work hours and are not using their cells unnecessarily. Sometimes, fraudulent workers could be selling inside information to agents from rival companies however with a spying application they will easily be detected.

Parents who are having a trouble controlling their kids can make use of these apps to be sure they stay out of dangers. Your children might be making friends with suspicious people or sharing their personal details in public. This can lead to serious consequences, since most cyber criminals target immature children to gain access to their private information. With spy apps, parents can view their children’s text messages and keep an eye out for any suspicious contacts. Tracking instant messengers such as Skype, Viber, and WhatsApp is also useful, since most bullies resort to private messages rather than posting threats for everyone else to see. Parents can track their children’s GPS locations, making sure they reach school and come back home safely.

The use of spy apps, for instance mSpy, has increased multifold since the aforementioned benefits have become known. They provide solutions that have never been available before, and therefore deserve due credit for making the lives of parents and employees easier.

Nokia Lumia 1020 - Is the Smartphone all about the 41MP camera?

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Lumia 1020

Nokia is in the news again with the launch of Lumia 1020. The most talked about feature of the latest Nokia Lumia 1020 - the 41MP camera. Yes, you read it right. This range of Lumia has the best Smartphone camera ever possible. At least the manufacturer Nokia claims it to be so. Is the camera all what you look forward to in Lumia 1020? To get the answer you need to go through the following review: 

The probable features of Lumia 1020 


Here are some other features of Lumia 1020. Check out the features and find out exactly what you can expect from the latest Smartphone: 

Is the design enticing? 


According to the latest reviews, the looks of Lumia 1020 are quite similar to the Lumia 920. The Smartphone is set in polycarbonate case. There is no metallic rim. This may a bit disappointing for the Lumia users. However, the overall look is sturdy enough and the lack of metal will not matter much. The dimension is 130x71x10.4 mm and it weighs around 158g. They may seem to be a bit heavier, but actually this is lighter considering the normal weight of super camera phones like Nokia Pureview and Galaxy S4 Zoom. 

How does it perform? 


There’s the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor in Lumia 1020. Not only this, but there are 2 GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory and huge 7GB SkyDrive cloud storage also. One more thing which you must know, there is no external memory slot in Lumia 1020. That means you’ve to be contended with only 32GB memory. If your usage is controlled, then it won’t be a problem. If you expect your phone to store more than just “sufficient”, then the new Lumia may disappoint you a bit. However, technical experts are claiming that super swift performance of the Smartphone will compensate for the missing storage space. 

How worthy is the camera? 


With the great capacity of 41 megapixels, you can expect the picture and video quality to be superb. There are the 1/1.2in BSI sensor, optical image stabilization, great Xenon flash and 6-lens Zeiss wide-angle optics working to make the camera a treat for the users. The advanced image stabilization technique is also unique enough. All these factors are sure to impress every photographer. You can easily adjust the ISO, the needed exposure and the light effects. The camera is capable of creating high-quality and beautifully contrasted pictures and videos. Also the camera works great in almost every environment. It can perform even in low light. So, you can understand camera is actually the most exciting feature of the Lumia 1020. 

How about the battery life? 


There is 2,000mAh battery in the device. There is no inbuilt support for wireless charging and this can make the device a bit difficult to manage. You need to charge the battery completely to use the phone moderately for the whole day. 

As you can see, camera is the only great factor about the Lumia 1020. The rest of the features can be found in any other hi-tech Smartphone too. Quite obviously, the 41MP camera won’t be able to replace a DSLR; still it’s better to rely on it for any high quality shoot. So, get the Nokia Lumia 1020 if you really have a fetish for good photography.
