If you’re an ardent follower of tech news you would remember the Bend Gate issue on the iPhone 6 plus which made iPhones get bent while in the users pockets and right now again one of most expensive phones in the market (as far as the Nigerian market is concerned) has developed not just one but two serious problems : Charge and Beauty Gate
Despite the fact that thousands of users have complained in the Apple forum about this 2 problems, the Curpertino based company is yet to release and official statement . I have a strong feeling they may need to recall all units affected with this problem since it’s taken this long and they haven’t even responded or released an update to fix the bug.
- The Charge-Gate Issue
Whenever you leave the phone idle for a while and then plug it to the charger, it does not charge until you tap the screen. This means if you were busy and just routinely plugged the phone and left it thinking it is charging and came back after a while, you will be disappointed that the phone has not been charged at all.
The user who has posted this issue in the forum says he has tried this with the 5W charger that is supplied with the phone and the 10W charger Apple sells officially and done it several times before making the issue public and says more than 100 people have raised the same charging-gate issue.
- Beauty Gate Issue
So Apple rolled out a device with bugs and doesn’t want to respond officially to it’s customers. So much for a trillion dollar company. Apple is becoming plain greedy, just focusing on the money and profit without providing adequate support for its customers.
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?
It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.
The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.
Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?
