Important things to check before buying a Smart Phone.

Published

on


People base their decisions on getting a mobile phone from advertisements or friends’ referrals.  What is most important are these few items below which will help you to decide the phone that best suits you and help you in achieving great results.

Operating System:
Operating System that is used on a Smartphone or tablet is yet another major feature to be considered before you buy. Smart phones and tablets runs on Operating System and the choices are Android OS, iOS, Microsoft Phone 7, Blackberry OS, webOS, Symbian etc. Android OS is very popular and used in a wide range of models.
Security:
Phones stores many confidential details like, password for all social media logins, bank details, and many more. This is the reason we should take security factor strongly into consideration. With new biometric security features all smart phones are much secure. iOS is having it touch id authentication and Android is having Google’s fingerprint system. Your fingerprint will be your id to unlock your phone if you are using these two operating systems.
Camera:
Several specifications such as camera aperture, ISO levels, pixel size, autofocus and more are essential because Just having more number of megapixels does not mean that the smart phone camera is better.
More number of pixels means more the size of the image, which becomes sharper when seen on a small screen. A photographer enthusiast might want a camera with 12 or 16MP sensor under f/2.0 or lower aperture for speedy shots even in low lights. A casual shooter can go by even with an 8MP 0r 12MP camera with f/2.0-f/2.2 aperture.
Battery Life:
This is an important feature to look out for, especially if you are always on transit! The lower the battery capacity, the faster it dies out on you. When browsing through specifications of phones on the internet, always look out for talk time. Anything less than 12 hours (half a day) on 2G, forget it. So go for smart phones that have history of durable lasting batteries for your benefit. But above all, the battery usage differs from user to user depending on the way he/she uses the smart phone.
Storage:
A large part of the smart phone’s storage is taken away from the OS and the apps the device comes pre-installed with. A 16GB/32GB/64GB or more don’t really come with exact mentioned space. If you like to keep less number of apps on your devices, you can go for 32GB storage.
Users who like to keep higher number of apps can go for 64GB or 128GB variants. You can also buy a 16GB model that supports microSD card as well.
 Budget:
The single most important deciding factor in purchasing your next mobile phone the cash at hand. Whether the phone is an expensive, mid range or lower range, it all depends on your spending power If you have the cash for a mid range phone, you should spend it instead on an older model high end mobile phone. For example, if you can’t afford a Samsung Galaxy S2, get the Samsung Galaxy S instead. It’s half the price and it will stay relevant longer than if you were to spend it on a Samsung Galaxy Ace.

Twitter confirms Trump’s ban will remain forever even if he runs again in 2024

Twitter confirms Trump’s ban will remain forever even if he runs again in 2024

Former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter ban will remain forever, even if he runs for president again in 2024, a top company official said on Wednesday February 10.

During an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Twitter’s chief financial officer, Ned Segal, was asked if the platform would restore Trump’s account if he ran again and was elected president.

In his reply, Segal said the ban is permanent, even if he ever becomes president again.

“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO or you are a former or current public official,” Segal said.

“Our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we would have to remove them from the service and our policies don’t allow people to come back.”

“So, no?,” Squawk Box host Rebecca Quick pressed.

“He was removed when he was president, and there’d be no difference for anybody who [was] a public official once they’ve been removed from the service,” Segal responded.

Mr. Segal also confirmed that the rules would apply to any public official that was banned from the service for similar reasons to Mr. Trump.

The republican politician was banned from Twitter last month following the deadly Jan. 6 riots that interrupted Congress’ certification of President Biden’s electoral college win.

International police takes down ‘world’s most dangerous’ malware network

Published

Law enforcement authorities across several countries have taken down a network of what they describe as the “world’s most dangerous malware.”

The malware, Emotet, gained access to users’ computers through infected email attachments, including documents purporting to be “invoices, shipping notices and information about Covid-19,” European police agency Europol, which coordinated the effort, said in a statement Wednesday.

“The Emotet infrastructure essentially acted as a primary door opener for computer systems on a global scale,” Europol said. “Once this unauthorised access was established, these were sold to other top-level criminal groups to deploy further illicit activities such as data theft and extortion.”

The global effort to disrupt and take control of the compromised network, known as a botnet, was carried out jointly between eight countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. The network consisted of several hundred servers across the world, Europol said.

An investigation by Dutch police yielded a database of email addresses, passwords and usernames that were compromised by Emotet. Users can check whether their email addresses were breached through this link.

The malware saw a resurgence last year, according to the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), which described “a significant increase in malicious cyber actors targeting state and local governments” with Emotet phishing emails. “This increase has rendered Emotet one of the most prevalent ongoing threats,” CISA added.

Europol urged internet users to update their device’s antivirus tools and exercise greater caution to avoid falling prey to malware attacks.

Users should carefully check their email and avoid opening messages and especially attachments from unknown senders,” it said. “If a message seems too good to be true, it likely is and emails that implore a sense of urgency should be avoided at all costs.”

Facebook to stop recommending civic and political groups

Published

Facebook will stop recommending users join “civic and political” groups, as it tries to reduce the number of political posts in people’s feeds.

It follows weeks of suppressing such content around the US election but will now become permanent policy around the world.

Mark Zuckerberg announced the change in a phone call with investors.

“People don’t want politics and fighting to take over,” the Facebook boss told those on the call.

It remains unclear what “civic groups” covers, and how the change could affect grassroots campaigning.

A Facebook spokesperson said the company was “still fine tuning” the policy and how it would work in the UK.

The decision follows months of pressure over the spread of misinformation on Facebook.

And Mr Zuckerberg said it wanted “to make sure the communities people connect with are healthy and positive”.

“There are also a lot of groups that we may not want to encourage people to join, even if they don’t violate our policies,” he said.

“Now, we plan to keep civic and political groups out of recommendations for the long term.”

This was “a continuation of work we’ve been doing for a while to turn down the temperature and discourage divisive conversations and communities”, Mr Zuckerberg said.

Facebook groups are often used for legitimate community organising and grassroots campaigns, however, something Mr Zuckerberg “want[s] to be able to keep happening”.

“But one of the top pieces of feedback we’re hearing from our community right now is that people don’t want politics and fighting to take over their experience on our services,” he added.

Facebook banned more than one million groups in 2020.
