Foldable Phones, 5G, And All The Best



2018 was an awesome year for smartphones. We got to see luxurious designs in mobile phones, notches and generally just excellent phones. The photography aspect in most devices was on point. Artificial intelligence was highly utilized in some devices.

In the next 12 months we expect new innovations. We are coming to the end of notches. Let's look at what to expect in 2019.

HOLE-PUNCH DISPLAYS

There is no doubt that notches will soon be replaced by punchhole displays. In 2018 we saw pop up camera designs in phones such as Vivo Nex S and in Oppo Find X. But that technology wasn't that appealing.

When Huawei Nova 4 was launched we saw that it had replaced its notch with a punchhole which houses the camera. Punchhole is the next trend in most smartphones. Don't be surprised if you see a hole in most devices this year. The hole is just small located on the top side of the screen.

MORE MEGAPIXELS AND LENSES


As i always say, the camera is what separates a good phone from a bad one. Most hardware in most phones is almost the same. There is no major differences. Huawei P20 Pro had one of the best cameras of 2018.

In 2019 we are expecting much more from smartphone manufacturers. It has been announced that Xiaomi is planning to launch a phone with a 48 megapixel camera. Huawei Nova 4 has a 48 megapixel camera. Other manufacturers will try and follow the same trend. The race for the best smartphone camera in 2019 is on.

In 2019 we are expecting to see more lenses. LG V40 ThinQ had a whooping 5 lenses. This year i think we will see more lenses. This trend will continue for the rest of the year.

FASTER CHARGING

The battery technology has really improved. We have seen how some phones just take a few minutes to fully charge. We have witnessed wireless charging and much more. Devices such as Oppo, Huawei and OnePlus have offered one of the best charging speeds.

Qualcomm has said that it will be introducing a triple charge system. This system will offer up to 32W for the normal wired charging and up to 15W for wireless charging. This Triple charging system will really change the landscape in battery technology. The trend for better fast charging will go on for the rest of the year.

FACE UNLOCKING


This technology has been around for a couple of years but Apple changed the game with Face ID. Most manufacturers will try and improve on their face unlocking feature making it faster and easily reliable. This tech can be used for also making payments.

The fingerprint scanner has faced major competition from face unlocking feature and an in display fingerprint scanner. We saw the rise of in display fingerprint scanner last year. Its experience wasn't the best. Face unlock is the easiest way to unlock your phone. In 2019 more manufacturers will embrace face unlocking and doing away with fingerprint sensor.

5G SPEED FOR SOME

I'm not quite sure about how 5G will be in 2019. With 5G we are expecting to get amazing network speeds and we are sure to expect some phones that support 5G. The problem is that no many phones will have 5G. It will be a select few. This new technology won't easily take off. It will take some few years for it to be wide spread.

Those who will get 5G devices will enjoy blazing fast speeds. Their download speeds will be unimaginable. The new Snapdragon 855 will really improve a lot of things. The chip will power most phones of 2019.

FOLDABLE PHONES

Manufacturers such as Samsung, Oppo, Motorola, LG and Huawei are all working on foldable phones. The phones might be released in 2019 but that isn't a guarantee. We have already seen a foldable phone by the name Royole flexpai and I'm expecting more foldable smartphones.

2019 looks to be a really great year for smartphones.  Smartphone manufacturers will impress us with what they are cooking. Let's look forward to a bright year.

3 Things To Look Forward To With Smartwatches In 2019


2019 looks to be a promising year. 2018 was a huge year for smartwatches. For the first time in over two years Qualcomm launched their first wearable device. Fitbit released one of the best smartphones in the market. Apple also had an awesome smartwatch which did well in 2018.

In 2019 the smartwatch universe seems to be really promising. Here are some of the things that we expect from smartwatches in 2019. Here are some of my predictions for smartwatches for 2019.

Qualcomm's Wear 3100 chip

In 2018 Qualcomm released Snapdragon  Wear 3100 processor which can be used for smartpwatches. The chip hasn't been that impressive. It has been used in only two Wear OS watches. This chip was used in Montblanc Summit 2 and in Fossil Sport. Other websites have stated that the battery performance on these smartwatches is poor. It doesn't live up to the hype. 

I don't think Summit 2 and Fossil Sport have been well optimized for this chip. Future software improvements can help with this. They can solve this small issue.  In 2019 it will be the year Qualcomm fully delivers and the software updates will be effective. That will surely result in a better experience for smartphone users. 

What's next for Fitbit



Fitbit had an awesome 2018. Most of the other manufacturers were wondering what to do with the new processor. Fitbit had earlier on developed a pretty awesome device called the Ionic smartwatch and now they launched Fitbit Versa which delivered one of the best experience. 

In 2019 I'm not sure what Fitbit will deliver. I guess there will be a successor for the Ionic smartwatch. This device was launched in October of 2017. This year Fitbit can release a new device and give it a refreshing look. They can input some new cool features so as to be able to compete with Apple Watch. 

Ionic is the flagship watch for Fitbit. Versa is also a good smartwatch which is a budget smartwatch. Fitbit should just launch Ionic 2. Updates on this smartwatch is set to improve the user experience and add some health features. 

Maybe Google will release the long-awaited Pixel Watch?

Everyone has been waiting for Google to release a Pixel Watch. The first pixel phone was released in 2016. We have been waiting for a wearable device from Google. We all thought that 2018 was the year Google was to release a Pixel Watch but that didn't happen. Google said that it was focused on helping others with their own smartwatches. 

New rumors suggest that 2019 is the year when Google releases a Pixel Watch. Reports at one point claimed that the Pixel Watch was to be released at the same time as the Pixel 3 watch but that didn't happen. I have high hopes that 2019 will be the year when we get a Pixel Watch. 

Those are my few predictions for smartwatches for 2019.

Things Not To Do With Your Smartphone And How To Boost Your Phone 


Smartphones have revolutionized how we live. We depend on our mobile devices for a lot of things. Some use their phones as diaries, others use their phones to capture images ans others use their phone to read novels. The opportunities presented by smartphones are endless.

We cannot carelessly misuse our phones  when they have so much importance to us. Every person is in one way or another dependant on their phone.

Below you will find things that we shouldn't do with our phones.

1. Using fake chargers

Every phone charger is different from the next. Chargers are made differently. Use an original charger to charge your phone. It's advisable to always use the original charger that came with your phone. Other chargers may damage your phone's battery.

2. Not backing up

The biggest mistake that you can do with your phone is to not back it up. It's wise if you back up your phone regularly. People usually see the importance of backing up their phones when they lose their data. Always back up your images, documents, videos and contacts.

3. Overcharging it

Most of us like leaving our phones to
charge overnight. This is not a good thing. By leaving your phone to charge the whole night you are basically damaging your battery. Most phones need less than 4 hours to fully charge.

4. Free wifi

We all have a habit of liking free things. Its hard to resist something given to you for free. Avoid using free Wi-Fi or Public Wi-Fi. If you have to use any free Wi-Fi atleast have a VPN to protect your phone.

5. Not cleaning it

You should regularly clean your phone. Take care of your smartphone device. Clean off any fingerprint smudges and make your phone look nice.

How To Boost Your Android Phone

We all love a phone that is fast. Performance is key in any smartphone. If your phone is slow here are somethings that you should do.

Check for updates.

It's wise to check for any software updates. Software updates usually come with fixes and generally improves your phone's performance. Regularly check if there are any new software updates.

Clean up your home screen

Live wallpapers aren't good for your smartphone. You can opt to use a static wallpaper than a live wallpaper. Also clear any unused icons on your home screen.

Uninstall and disable unused apps

Uninstall apps that you never use. These different apps drain your RAM causing the performance of your phone to be slow. Clear apps that you do not use or disable some apps.

Turn off or reduce animations

By reducing the transition and animation speed you can make your phone load faster. Go to settings, severally click on developers option and then head over to Transition animation scale and to the Animator duration scale. Set it to just 0.5x or turn it off. By doing this you will make your phone faster.

Clear cached app data

It you clear data for apps you can
actually make your phone faster. Clearing cached app data is a simple way of boosting the speed of your phone and making the performance faster.

Turn off or reduce auto-sync

You can turn off auto sync feature on your phone. Auto sync usually takes place in the background thus causing your phone to be slow. Sync hinders the performance on anytime. It takes a lot of your phones resources and also there  battery life.

Try a third-party launcher

If you want to change how your phone feels you can download a launcher. If you visit Google PlayStore you will find countless launchers. Launchers change how your phone looks like and the navigation. Launchers such as CM launcher and Apex are examples of good launchers.

Perform a factory reset

This should be the last step. Factory reset means wiping your phone clean off any data. If you factory reset your phone it will return to its original condition like how it was when new. Before you factory reset you can back up your data. So as to factory reset your phone go to Settings > Backup & reset > Factory data reset.
