Have You Ever Lost Your Phone? A New Phone Tracking Service Is Now Available In Nigeria 1
Let’s be honest, 9 out of every 10 persons have been a victim of phone theft or know someone that has been a victim. I’ve actually lost a smartphone before and I know how it feels.

You get that sad shallow feeling in your heart as you remember how you could have prevented the phone from getting missing and those your pictures; yes those ones that seemed so cool that they’ll get 200+ comments .

The one that’s even more painful, is if it’s a phone of almost N100k and your contacts weren’t even backed up. You lost the contact of that new babe you were trying to spin all these weeks and she finally gave you her number.

I believe you’ve been in that position before so  let me go straight to how you can track your phone in Nigeria when it gets missing. Unlike Apple’s iCloud lock that protects their smartphones whenever it gets missing the only available tracking service that is available by default for all android smartphones is Google’s find my device feature which only locates your device in the last location it was last online.

You cannot remotely wipe your device with the feature if your phone is offline so the feauture becomes almost practically useless in most cases and tracking your phone in Nigeria with it becomes practically impossible.

PINS Solutions is a mobile tracking service tailored specifically for tracking devices within Nigeria and they work hand in hand with Telecom Companies and law enforcement agencies to make sure you are able to track your device.

Here’s a run down of  feautures of the PINs App –

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 19

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

INFINIX SMART 3 Plus

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 22

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
