Since Facebook introduced free basics internet about a year ago, it has helped a lot of people use the internet even without an active data plan. You can also access my blog on free basics. A blog reader sent this post in.
Normally on Facebook free mode, you won’t be able to view photos but with this tip, you can now view photos. All you need is the Facebook lite app which is the data friendly version of facebook app. It loads faster, saves battery, data and works well in areas with poor network reception 📶 unlike the conventional Facebook app.
✔ An Android phone
✔️ 9Mobile or Airtel SIM card without airtime or active data plan
✔️ The Facebook Lite App
✔️ You network should have at least a decent 2G service but 3G or 4G are better.
✔ After downloading and installing the FB lite app, open it and log in (if it’s your first time using it)
✔️ After about a minute, close the app
✔ Switch off your Data
✔️ Now head over to your phone Settings > locate App > scroll down to Facebook lite > tap it, then clear the data of the Facebook lite.
✔️ Then switch on your data and launch your Facebook Lite app
✔️ Enter your login details again
At this moment, you will notice that it won’t load when trying to login, all you need to do is just exit the fb lite app and open it again. This time, it should load. You will be welcomed to data mode and also see option for switching back to free mode.
At this juncture, you will notice that you are on Data mode and you will start seeing all pictures. This means all images and photos will be visible for you to see now in Facebook free mode (freebasic) but you won’t be able to watch videos on the Facebook Lite app.
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.
