Design and Display

The Galaxy M20 is the second variant in the new Galaxy M series. Samsung gives you a 6.3-inch Display with a 19:9  touchscreen, 1080 x 2340 pixels. It also comes with an 83.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Samsung jumps on the latest trend this year and abandons the apple rectangular notch in favor of a teardrop notch which houses the selfie camera, light sensor, and receiver.

The Galaxy M20 comes with a different design from the regular devices in the non-flagship Galaxy Line Up. And it is available in different color options.

At the back of the device, you get to see the dual camera coupled with the fingerprint sensors and the company’s logo sit at the bottom of the design.

The phone is simply amazing. The phone weighs just 183g, which I feel is a little bit heavy but I’m guessing that might have to do with the battery as phones with bigger battery power seem to have more weight.

Camera and Connectivity

 

Apart from the premium feeling and all the other design aesthetics you can find on the Galaxy M20 design, the Samsung Galaxy M20 Android Smartphone like most of the devices from Samsung still comes arrives with a great rear camera, the sensors and lenses have also been incredibly improved.

The Galaxy M20 comes with a dual camera set up at the back, which includes a 16-megapixels AF + secondary 5-megapixels for depth sensor capturing.

The back camera is also supported by an LED flash, HDR, panorama. While the front shooter comes with an 8 megapixels camera with f/2.0 aperture and it can record videos in 1080 at 30fps.

However, both cameras support Beauty mode, Scene detection, HDR, Night shots, and many more.

The Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with 4G support, while other connectivity options include includes WiFi, WiFi hotspot, WiFi direct, Bluetooth v5.0, the classic 3.5mm audio jack, USB support.

 

Performance and Battery

The device is powered by an Octa-Core Exynos 7870  processor. However, there’s no official word yet on if there are bloatware apps on the device that can be uninstalled with the single touch of a button.

The main selling point of the Galaxy M20  is the beast of a battery it comes with -a 5000 mAh battery. Although there are phones with bigger battery life like the Oukitel K10000 with a 10000mAh battery the battery of this device is definitely something to be hyped up about.

According to Samsung, The device will come in 2 variants one with 64GB of inbuilt storage while another will come with 32GB of inbuilt storage, that allows you to store as many files as you want to like your documents, apps, games, music, movies/stash, and even your best photos.

But if you feel the space availability is not an enough, you can expand it up to 512GB via a dedicated micro SD card slot. Now that’s a lot of storage, you can check Microdia’s 512GB Memory card though if you are looking for the maximum storage option.

I’m a bit excited that it will run on Android 9.0 pie out of the box considering this is 2019 and most of us haven’t even tested out Android 9.0 Pie so it’s a worthy addition to the list of phones running on Android 9.0 pie. It might come with Samsung’s most recent TouchWiz UI with newer features that bring smoother and smarter operation, quicker fingerprint sensor usage, and a faster system navigation gesture

Like I mentioned before, the Galaxy, M20  is powered by a 5000mAh battery, and it is enough to last a day and a half on a single charge.

The device also has fast charging technology, so all you have to do is plug in your device and wait for a few hours to get it fully charged for the next use.

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Published

on

attention!-bug-on-android-is-frustrating-users-using-pin-code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

You can now hear Samuel L. Jackson’s voice on your Amazon Echo

samuel-l.-jackson-already-has-voice-on-amazon-alexa

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
