Nokia 1 Plus – Review

Nokia 1 Plus   Review

We did a really detailed overview a few months back so I’ll just bring you up to speed here. First of all, this is cheap. You can get it right now on Vodafone for a mere £59 when you get it with the £10 Big Value Bundle.

It is not, and I don’t think this will surprise you, going to challenge the high-end smartphones. The construction, for starters, takes us back to a time when the rear panel came off your phone. It’s actually quite nice to have this back, and to use a phone that you don’t mind dropping every now and then. That said though, you rarely will because it’s not slippy at all.

The camera is stuck in the past a bit too. During a time when you had to stand absolutely, completely, rock-solid to take a photo and low-light shots are a struggle. Yes, you can use the flash but if I click the viewfinder onto a dark area of my photo, it’ll wash out all the whiter areas like this…

A bit of care, some careful holding and you can get a better image though..

I took a few more example shots direct from the camera. They came out well but you can tell that there’s less clarity due to it having just 8 megapixels.

The phone only has 1GB too, so you get the “lighter” version of Google apps, such as Gmail “Go” and Maps “Go” etc. They use less memory and therefore perform better with the more restrictive specifications.

Add to that the 8GB of on-board storage, which you’ll find half-filled out of the box, and you’re going to be quickly hunting for a microSD card. Luckily these are quite cheap, but you’ll need to remember to add it to your £59 outlay because, believe me, the 8GB on board won’t last long after you’ve installed a couple of apps and snapped some photos.

Performance-wise, this has the Android 9 Pie Go edition as we touched on before. This gives a quicker, smoother experience using less data, battery and storage. At this price-point, it’s not bad.

As we mentioned in the first overview, the rear panel pops off to reveal a battery, the microSD slot and the SIM card slot. Proper old-school baby. Pop it on and the buttons map to the inner chassis, with a 3.5mm audio and microUSB charging port also present.

At the back is that 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, whilst up front there’s a 5 megapixel camera for your selfie action. Both cameras need a very steady hand when used – especially in low-light when you’ll get blur if you move.

The screen is pass-able. It feels like plastic and is a fingerprint magnet. The 5.45″ 18:9 screen is, at least, not as terrible as similarly-priced phones I used to look at a few years ago. Back then you’d struggle to get 640×480 but here you at least get 960×480 which is… a slight improvement.

Nokia 1 Plus   Review

The design, overall, really isn’t too bad. It has a quite business-like appearance and the grippy rear panel, complete with the classic Nokia logo, has a quality feel to it. It’s quite thin too, and how quickly I can forget the thickness of entry-level smartphones back in the day. This is well designed.

On the top is that traditional 3.5mm audio port, whilst on the right is the volume controls and the power button..

On the bottom is the old microUSB charger..

Now, although I recorded an overview video in my earlier piece, I’ve added a look into the OS with this second video…

In use, the OS is OK. It performs reasonably well with the slimmed-down apps but, if you dare to throw anything hefty at it (like a high-end game or video editing) then you’ll find it struggling. Browsing and social media are fine, but run too many apps at once or ask too much of it and it’ll start moaning.

The range of apps you’d expect on there, and you can watch YouTube videos or navigate with Google Maps, plus everything is synchronised with the mighty Google cloud via your internet connection.

Nokia 1 Plus   Review

For a smartphone to get you going, as a starter of beginner phone and considering how cheap this is (this one is from Vodafone and is just £59), you are getting a lot for your money. Battery life and the standard functionality is definitely good enough. It’s just the slightly small storage and the limited performance.

No NFC here and no 5GHz WiFi, which is to be expected. It also doesn’t have the very latest Bluetooth and the screen resolution is no-where near that of more advanced phones. However, this is a budget entry-level phone and, costing £59 on Vodafone right now, you can’t really argue too much. If your budget is absolutely restricted, it’s a fair purchase, but you could spend a little more and get a much faster experience with a better camera from the likes of Honor etc.

Overall, it’s surprising what you can get at this price, but you will be needing to buy a microSD card which is going to increase your spend anyways, so perhaps have a look at slightly more expensive competition.

5 of the most popular app categories

Unbelievably there’s now 4 billion people connected to the internet. That, though, isn’t the most amazing number. There’s now a larger number of mobile phone users, now amounting to 5 billion. Mobile phones and the internet are both integral parts of life now, with many people shuddering at the thought of spending a day without either.

Research today shows that, in one year alone, we spend over a billion years on the internet. That’s collectively, of course. That number is subject to increase as the internet becomes more and more integrated into people’s lives thanks to our smartphones. 

5 of the most popular app categories

Smartphone apps provide convenient solutions rather than cloning PC apps. You’d be hard-pressed nowadays to find a popular website or store that doesn’t want you to download an app if you’re looking at the site on your phone. Some years ago, visiting popular websites like Youtube or Reddit on your mobile browser would have provided you with extra features, but nowadays, the bulk of a website’s functionality is best utilized through the app.

Perhaps the biggest shift recently has been due to their now being just two main smartphone platforms, iOS and Android. Businesses, and websites in general, used to have to merely make mobile versions of their sites in the hope that the various mobile phones could browse their pages. Now, with just two big smartphone OS’s, apps are gaining more functionality, and they have more freedom to innovate. We’ll be giving you the latest 5 trends in applications that we believe you should have on your smartphone.

Shopping apps

There is a certain allure to getting lost in supermarket aisles hoping to find a good bottle of wine or looking for new furniture in a traditional brick and mortar store. While these things may be considered fun, they are not the most practical of solutions in this day and age. Shopping apps are becoming a standard install for most people, with the likes of eBay and Amazon sitting on a lot of phones up and down the country. Major online shopping and other electronic payment providers now offer digital wallets that allow you to shop anywhere with instant payment. The trendiest wallet apps this year are Amazon’s Amazon Pay and Flipkart’s PhonePe.

Video editing apps

Serious video editing was always reserved for computers and in particular Macs. However, mobile apps are now moving forwards, reducing the gap between the video editing on a PC and a mobile phone. Adobe is making some fantastic progress with its Adobe Premiere Rush app. It’s available for IOS and Android. What makes it more unique than most apps on the market and their previous editors is that this one has cross-platform functionality, meaning that it can be installed on MacOS and Windows. This makes it a very powerful tool for editors who are constantly on the move and those who collect materials then edit them in a short time. 

Diet and exercise apps

Technology usually is held accountable for making people lazier and fatter due to the more sedentary lifestyle. Apps are now resolving this issue with the development of dieting and exercising apps that can enhance your progress and push you further. One we’re loving is Losing It! As you can guess from the title, it’s a very straightforward app with constant friendly and innovative reminders of your goals and tasks. The most popular feature is the barcode scanning feature that allows you to add food entries in your list. If you’re looking to get into a specific dieting regimen, Lose It! Provides you with the best diets that could best help you achieve your goal.

Online gambling

Online gambling has been around for about two decades now. Its progress is not expected to slow down yet actually increase. Gambling isn’t an easy field to navigate, due to its potential of becoming an unhealthy addiction instead of a fun hobby. Maintaining proper precautions while gambling is important as there is always the risk of scams occurring. This is why the people at Sloty Vegas, who have over 1000 gambling games, always recommends their players to do so by clearly showing their verification as a reliable site. It’s also something that can be done by reaching out to the proper channels for consultation and assistance whenever a player feels they have a problem.

Food apps

There is nothing more delicious than reading authentic mouthwatering reviews of great dishes, in addition to giving you a heads-up about a bad dish at a specific restaurant. The usual food dilemma is caused by spending a great deal of time online, checking generic menus and photos, then trying your best to decide if it’s worth trying something new or not. “The Bite” is taking the hassle out of this situation by providing a platform for people to share their experience with restaurants and even take photos of the food by providing three main rating types – quality, cost, and taste. Another app worth mentioning is “Open Table”. It gives a user the ability to reserve a table at many famous and underground restaurants for free. The app also offers dining credits that can be used to redeem freebies. 

5 of the most popular app categories

2018 was a great year for apps and their development. 2019 is showing great progress and we’re seeing more apps of higher quality appear on a daily basis. Apps are becoming more and more practical as developers find more ways to integrate them into our lives. 

Now we’re seeing a move towards augmented reality and artificial intelligence – breakthroughs in these fields have shown amazing results for the consumer and business cultures. What puts these apps onto the fast track of growth is the real-time exchange of information between users and servers. Information can be collected, analysed and responded to instantly. 

No matter where you are, apps can use the information you provide to improve the results for all. The internet can bring people closer, and apps are just facilitating that process.

Apple Offers Rewards up to $1 Million for iPhone Vulnerabilities

Apple is expanding its bug bounty program to solicit security vulnerabilities from security researchers. The program will now be open to all, not just researchers on pre-approved list. The bug bounties have also increased from $200,000 to as much as $1 million for the most serious bugs, such as hacking the kernel — the core of any OS — with zero clicks required by the iPhone owner. Another $500,000 will be given to those who can find a “network attack requiring no user interaction.” There’s also a 50% bonus for hackers who can find weaknesses in software before it’s released. Apple is also extending the program to watchOS. The announcements were made in a talk by Apple’s head of security engineering Ivan Krstić at the annual Black Hat conference. Krstić said the bug bounty program has been a success to date, with 50 serious bugs reported since the 2016 launch.

Google Highlighting Podcasts in Search, Assistant

Google is starting to roll out new features in Search, Assistant, and its Google Podcasts app to make it easier to find and listen to relevant podcasts. Starting today, including the word “podcasts” in a search will bring up a new section with playable podcast results. Soon, Google will surface playable podcast results for certain searches even without using the “podcasts” keyword. Later this year, Google will make the same function available when searching using Google Assistant. For example, when you say “Hey Google, play a podcast about Marie Curie,” it will suggest relevant episodes for you. Google syncs listening progress, so you can start a podcast, and pick up where you left off in Google Podcasts. Google is also working with podcasters to let them specify where their podcasts are available, to help surface non-free podcast content.

Nubia – Dual-screen smartphone? Look over here!

Nubia   Dual screen smartphone? Look over here!
With LG teasing a dual-screen V60 ThinQ at IFA, the guys at Nubia want you to remember the fact that they’ve already shown one off. The Nubia X appeared at CES, but now they’re bringing that same dual-screen technology to the new Nubia Z20, and it’ll be available next month too.

Nubia   Dual screen smartphone? Look over here!

There’s no notch, no flip cameras or holes in the screen, instead the Z20 has a 5.1″ rear display on the back of the device to supplement the front bezel-less 6.42″ Full HD+ unit. Basically, a screen on the front and one on the back. This means you can snap photos or videos using the “rear” triple camera setup. The three lenses are a 48 megapixel main unit with OIS, a 16 megapixel ultra-wide camera (122.2° field of view) and an 8 megapixel telephoto camera which comes with a 3x optical zoom. There’s 8K ultra-high definition and 1920fps super slow motion plus HDR10 video recording. You can also switch to the advanced Pro Mode or Super Night Mode for the best quality shot possible.

Nubia   Dual screen smartphone? Look over here!

Specs on this one are definitely up there, with up to 8GB RAM and 512GB storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU, UFS 3.0 storage and a 4000mAh battery + up to 27W PD fast charging.

Nubia   Dual screen smartphone? Look over here!

Going on sale in China on August 16th, a launch in the USA, Canada, EU and the UK is set for September.

That additional screen setup is very trick – you can choose to have each screen operate independently or they can work together, and that rear screen also doubles as an always-on display. The rear screen can also be mapped as triggers for gaming.

No exact pricing on this one, but it certainly looks lust-worthy 🙂

Parental Control apps to monitor usage

The internet can be a dark place. As we have now transitioned into our digital world, we’ve also had to wrestle with its complexities. The number of children using the internet grows each day, and the younger children are, the more likely they are to use the internet. Kids everywhere now have access to mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops. Luckily there are a few things you can do to protect your children from the dark side of the web. A parental control app is one way to get started. This method can help you monitor your children’s internet use and keep them safe.

Things to be Concerned About

Parents often worry about their kids interacting with unsafe and inappropriate content online. Furthermore, cyber-bullying is another issue we are dealing with. And as kids get older, peer pressure is also something parents have to worry about. You can’t protect your kid from everything, but you can make sure they aren’t seeing and interacting with things that could be traumatising or hurtful to them.

Parental Control apps to monitor usage

Benefits of Parental Control Apps

While providing access to the Web isn’t necessarily a bad thing in of itself, it can become very bad quickly. Without the knowledge to guide your child’s experience online, you are in the dark. These issues can affect the child’s life greatly, especially when they are exposed to internet darkness at an early age. Using a parental control app allows you to see what your kids are looking at and what they are searching for on the internet. 

According to the site MoneyPug, which is used to compare mobile phones, parental control apps are available for both iOS and Android. They can help you monitor online activities, monitor your child’s location, and block inappropriate websites. They’re also typically easy to use. After you become a member and install the app on the family’s devices, you will be able to connect the devices and begin monitoring. These apps also work remotely—you will always know what your children are doing online. 

You can even limit screen time using one of these apps. Easily block the device or set a time limit on the app. This will help your child stay focused on homework and chores. Furthermore, there is Geofencing and tracking that will enable you to know the device and your child are at any given time. Parental control apps are a great way to get started when you want to establish greater online safety in your home. 

Types of Parental Control Apps

There are many different types of parental control apps. It is best to choose the one that works best for you, your family, and your situation. Some allow you to customize exactly what your kids will be able to see while tracking their location and gives you the option to set times for homework and bed. Others offer dashboards that list recent activity. Most parental control apps allow you to block specific sites, games, and applications. Some of the more hands-on apps even allow you to send messages to your kids when they are doing something they shouldn’t be. Some even force the child to respond before their device is unlocked again. 

Getting Ahead

As technology progresses and becomes more and more complex, the dangers of technology for children will also increase. For now the right app can help parents watch over their children, but as the web changes so will the threats. Governments are making laws to control the internet, but this is not necessarily a good thing either. Laws will govern what we interact and how we create new ideas. 

The most important thing is to talk with your child. Being open with them about the internet and its dangers can make a world of difference. It is important to be steadfast in every way. Your strategy for keeping your kids safe online should be comprehensive and dynamic. 

Kids these days are always vulnerable to the internet’s darkness. It will surely shape our lives as more and more people are raised with a tablet in their hands. But if you take an approach that considers all the things you should do to protect your kids, you will be able to keep them safe from inappropriate content and malicious online actors. Get ahead of the game and start monitoring and keeping control of your children’s online experience.

Honor juggle their marketing messages

Honor juggle their marketing messagesThere has always been a perceived notion amongst the older generation that young people use their phones too much. On the flip-side, the younger generation seem to think that the older generation don’t use them enough due to lack of understanding. This, as with most perceived notions, is not entirely the case and to marketing people it is very important that they know how to to market their product to both.

Due to this the marketing bods over at Honor decided to do some research for their next marketing splurge. For a long time the the key cornerstone of the Honor Brand has been “FOR THE BRAVE”. This is not going to be disappearing, but they are now to grab hold of a key realisation that a large proportion of Generation Z (18 -24) are indeed using their phones a bit too much. However, it’s a productivity-based way, with many of them using it to provide a supplementary income. I have seen this for myself in the various trips that I have been on for Coolsmartphone as I am surrounded by people who make a living using a smartphone. The research below shows the highest activities carried out by “Gen Z”.

Smartphone use Gen Z (18-24) Baby Boomers and Traditionalists (45+)
To be more creative 40% 10%
To increase social consciousness 30% 10%
To be more environmentally conscious 20% 8%

So how are Honor going to try and appeal to these new productivity maestros for the new Honor 20 Pro. One of the things that we know a lot about with regard to the launch of the Honor 20 Pro is that the night camera is something they want to shout about. They’ve engaged the services of a group of graffiti artists from the Professional Graffiti and Street Art Team, Graffiti Kings. They have created a mural on a wall in Shoreditch that will display the two sides of the “age divide”.

This mural will really come to life in the hours after the sun goes down – the image will show the activities that Gen Z are really up to on their phone, as well as what they’re perceived to be doing.

This should prove to be an enlightening look at what can now be done on a phone and will hopefully make the older generations appreciate that Gen Z is not just using their phones for things like Facebook Tinder and playing games! It may even encourage them to try one of the Honor 20 Pro’s themselves.

Here are some of the pictures from the campaign.

And here is a time lapse of it being created

We also have a quote from Olivier Dobo, HONOR UK Marketing Director, who tells us..

Our research shows that young people are getting more out of their smartphones than any previous generation, and we’re proud to help them continue to do so. Phones like our new HONOR 20 PRO mean young people can start to change their world as easily as they change the track they’re listening to, so the fact that so many of Gen Z are embracing the opportunities smartphones offer is really great to see.

I hope that we will be able to spend some time with the Honor 20 Pro in the very near future to greater understand what makes this phone so appealing.

Don’t forget if you order one from the Honor website or from the below retailers, you will get a free Honor Watch Magic that is worth £179.99. This offer will expire on the 18th of August so you had better be quick if you want one. The phone itself is coming in at a very very reasonable £549.99

HONOR 20 PRO is available in either Phantom Blue, exclusively at Carphone Warehouse or Phantom Black, available at Amazon, Argos, MPD, Very and A1 Comms as well as Carphone Warehouse.

HONOR challenges the UK to be more #SwitchedOn around youth stereotypes

77% of over 45’s feel that young people spend too much time on their phones

Only 8% of those aged 18-24 feel smartphones have a negative impact on their lives

90% of Gen Z have shown older generations how to do something on their phone.

50% of 18-24 year olds say they have uncovered artistic talents through using their smartphones

1st August 2019 – New research conducted by mobile tech brand HONOR has revealed that over three quarters of over 45’s believe that young people spend too much time on their phones, while only 8% of those aged 18-24 feel any negative effects of their smartphone usage.

To help shine a light on negative perceptions of youth smartphone usage and mark the launch of the new HONOR 20 PRO, HONOR has today unveiled an evolving graffiti mural in the heart of London.

The research, conducted by OnePoll among 2,000 Brits to analyse generational attitudes towards smartphones, found that although 92% of the UK now own a mobile phone, there is a disconnect between how older generations perceive Gen Z’s usage in comparison to how they view their own.

41% of 45+ year olds believe smartphones have a negative impact on the lives of Gen Z, while 62% of that same age bracket believe smartphones have a positive effect on their own lives.

Meanwhile, three quarters (76%) of 18-24 year olds feel that their smartphone usage is totally misunderstood by the older generation with 90% saying they had shown older generations how to do something on the phone, despite only 33% of over 35’s being comfortable admitting to this.

As modern lifestyles have changed, the shift in how we engage with one another has also taken a turn. Results show that, thanks to ongoing advancements in smartphone cameras, 95% of Gen-Z have now used photography as a form of communication with more than three quarters (83%) doing so multiple times a week, whilst Baby Boomers (35%) and Traditionalists[1] (43%) still prefer to communicate face-to-face.

Britain is more creative, connected and entrepreneurial than ever before with 50% of 18-24 year olds having uncovered artistic talents through the use of a smartphone in comparison to 24% of the 55+ age bracket. Gen Z use their phones for an increasingly wide variety of tasks, many of which could be seen as productive. For instance, 55% of the demographic know someone with a side hustle, of which 64% said this earns them money and 41% saying they couldn’t do it without their mobile phone. What’s more, almost half of the UK (49%) believe they are more productive due to having a smartphone, 60% of which are part of Gen Z.

Despite some negative perceptions from older generations, HONOR’s research actually revealed that those aged between 18-24 are using their smartphone in more positive ways than any other generation.

Smartphone use Gen Z (18-24) Baby Boomers and Traditionalists (45+)
To be more creative 40% 10%
To increase social consciousness 30% 10%
To be more environmentally conscious 20% 8%

 

It’s clear that younger people see more benefits from using their phones for work too, with 37% of those born after 1996 saying they make them more flexible, 34% saying they can multi-task better and 36% saying their time management benefits from using their phones. In contrast to this, 44% of over 55’s said that having a smartphone has not benefitted their work in any way at all.

Olivier Dobo, HONOR UK Marketing Director, said: “Our research shows that young people are getting more out of their smartphones than any previous generation, and we’re proud to help them continue to do so. Phones like our new HONOR 20 PRO mean young people can start to change their world as easily as they change the track they’re listening to, so the fact that so many of Gen Z are embracing the opportunities smartphones offer is really great to see.”

To highlight these new findings, HONOR has partnered with Professional Graffiti and Street Art Team, Graffiti Kings, to create a 30ft artistic mural on a wall in Shoreditch. The artwork will be on display to the public depicting the two sides of the story. In a two-part mural that comes alive at night, the image will show the activities that Gen Z are really up to on their phone, as well as what they’re perceived to be doing.

The HONOR 20 PRO was designed to meet the ever-evolving needs of the world’s youth, featuring one of the best all round creative camera systems available in the market. It features HONOR’s first ever AI Quad Camera, and comes with Ultra-High ISO Sensitivity, which provides a better low-light photography experience.

Following its global launch in London earlier this year, the HONOR 20 PRO will be on sale in the UK for £549.99 from today, and al customers who buy between 1 August and 18 August will receive a free HONOR Watch Magic, normally £179.99.

All Four Top US Carriers to Offer 5G Note10, with Varying Band Support

The Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G will be the first phone to support sub-6 GHz FDD 5G for T-Mobile and AT&T. However, the AT&T and T-Mobile versions will not support mmWave 5G that offers faster speeds in central areas of major cities, even though the Verizon version will support only mmWave 5G. T-Mobile and AT&T spokespeople have confirmed to Phone Scoop that their versions will not support mmWave. Sub-6 GHz FDD bands (low-band) are the same bands used for 4G service today, and offer broad coverage that mmWave frequencies cannot. T-Mobile and AT&T have announced plans to launch 5G on sub-6 GHz FDD bands later this year. Verizon will be first to sell the Note10+ 5G on August 23rd. Verizon will have an undisclosed period of exclusivity, after which AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint will also offer it. Verizon will charge $1300 for the 256 GB model, available in black, white, or a prismatic “Aura Glow”, and $1400 for the 512 GB version, available in black. The 5G and 4G versions of the Note10+ are identical in appearance, size, and features. The only difference is a 2 gram weight difference to account for the 5G components. The Note10 series includes Play Galaxy Link, which lets you stream games from your home PC to your phone, a feature that will benefit greatly from the data speeds and low latency offered by 5G.

Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note10
