Tech Giant, Google has cleaned up the UI to refine notifications and has also added color tones to highlight important information. While the basic functionality of notifications on Android Nougat is similar to its predecessors, there are some underlying changes.
Quick Reply with notifications on Android Nougat
From the lock screen of your Android device, you can still see the usual notification cards, but with a little change . Before you go ahead and swipe away the notification, try tugging down slightly on the notification card.
Doing this will enable you to use the Quick Reply feature and type in a text right from the lock screen. If you have a Fingerprint, PIN, Pattern or Passcode enabled, you will have to unlock your device before you can use Quick Reply.
Customize notifications from the pull-down menu
Other than Quick Reply, Android Nougat also enables you to control how the notification cards appear on your device. In order to edit the notifications of a particular app, simply slide your finger across the notification card from right to left. This action will reveal a tiny gear icon on the right side of the notification card.
Tapping on the gear icon will reveal three options:
Show notifications silentlyBlock all notificationsDon’t silence or block
Choose either of the 3 options and press “Done”, or press “More Settings” to view complete notification settings for that particular app. You can then tinker with the advanced notification options for the app on your device.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
iPhone 11 – Is there anything left to announce?

Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
