Phones / Re: Xiaomi Launches In Africa To Compete Against Tecno, Itel And Infinix by Cyb3rhack3r: 6:56am On Jan 22, 2019
NaijaTechGuy:
A couple of months ago Xiaomi Global Spokesman Donovan Sung made a post about their new store that launched in Spain and also asked for suggestions on where they should launch their next store and here’s what I said.



This means the expansion of Xiaomi had been on the cards for a while.

If you have been following up Xiaomi for a while, you would know that they tend to compete on the foreign market rather than their home country China due to the congestion.

Now, the company is looking to take things to the next level and come to Africa. On Sunday, Xiaomi announced the establishment of their African Regional Department and Wang Lingming (Xiaomi’s VP) was appointed as the manager of the department.



At the moment, in Africa we have over 1.2 billion people but the smartphone usage isn’t really too high and many people still use feature phones and because of this some phone brands don’t really do well in Africa. At the moment Transsision Holdings rules the African smartphone market with its three brands – itel, TECNO, and Infinix ranking at the very top in Africa in terms of market share.

In 2019, the Africa will become one of Xiaomi’s main pioneers in their international business, and their biggest rival here is Transsision Holdings.


What I Think About Xiaomi Coming To Africa



Xiaomi has everything it takes to succeed in Africa especially if it starts off with its recently established Redmi Brand. Redmi already have one of the core features that is missing in all the Transission brands – high quality specs at a low price. You can see how successful the Redmi Note 7 has been so far and we can guess how much the price would have been if it was a Transission product.

Transsision basically takes advantage of the mid-range and low-end smartphone market which is a strong competitive ground for Xiaomi. I believe this would also boost competition among the two brands.

Phones / Re: Microsoft Officially Ends Support For Windows 10 Mobile by Cyb3rhack3r: 7:08am On Jan 21, 2019
NaijaTechGuy:
The support for Windows 10 phones have just ended.



Although It’s very sad to see the Operating system go out of fashion, there’s nothing we can do about it.

Microsoft has already confirmed that it is officially killing off support for the OS. I actually knew this would happen at some point but I didn’t know it would be this soon.



So if you’re still using a Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile phone, you have less than a year to upgrade to something else preferably an Android Phone.

Windows 10 Mobile Is Dead



Microsoft has already published a support page detailing Windows 10 Mobile’s upcoming End of Support.

According to the company, Windows 10 Mobile users are no longer eligible to receive updates, including security updates, from December 10, 2019. Devices that are running Windows 10 Mobile version 1703 will no longer receive support even earlier — on June 11th, 2019.

So immediately it gets to the end of support date some of the features on the device will slowly stop working and Microsoft won’t do anything about it. Automatic or manual device backups will end on March 10, 2020.

With this notice, Microsoft just hit the final nail on the coffin of it’s mobile operating system

Alternative Option For Windows 10 Mobile

“Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices,” the company said, recommending users to move to an Android or iOS device.

Do you still have a windows phone?

Phones / Re: Gionee Mobile Is Now Officially Bankrupt, Files For Liquidation In Court by Cyb3rhack3r: 6:47am On Dec 27, 2018
NaijaTechGuy:
A few weeks ago I made a post regarding Gionee's financial woes being the possible reasons why we haven't seen new phones from Gionee.

[img]https://4.bp./-cbSJbyps6aM/XB_YGz5t1zI/AAAAAAAAO8s/JMOjMpuYshgiMDo0UtlVVCs-I09t4oqFgCLcBGAs/s1600/gionee-Logo-Png-Vector.jpg[/img]

The same day I made the post a Gionee Nigeria staff called me and made threats regarding the post saying they would take action against me for publishing such content which was quite laughable. I don't take down content that is true to please any brand. I also believe he was quite oblivious of the current position of his employers so I would disregard the threat.


The news reaching me now is that the company has officially entered bankruptcy.

A court in Shenzhen has accepted the application for liquidation bankruptcy by Huaxing Bank. This may still turn into a company reorganization – Gionee hired restructuring consultants last week. Founder Liu Lirong thinks that the company can turn its fortunes around in 3-5 years.


However, Gionee owes a total of CNY 20.2 billion (around $3 billion) to 648 creditors. About half of the debt is to banks. Earlier this year the company failed to pay suppliers. Ad agencies haven’t been paid either.

The company's money problem started when the founder and chairman Liu lost a CNY 1 billion bet in a casino.

Liu admitted in the interview that Gionee’s total debts amount to 17 billion yuan ($2,447,065,000), with 10 billion yuan($1,439,450,000) of this owed to banks, 5 billion yuan($719,725,000) to upstream suppliers and about 2 billion to advertising agencies.

If nothing spontaneous happens in 3 – 5 years and the executives can't avoid gambling, this will be the end of Gionee Electronics and Smartphones.

Sad.. They used to be a great brand

Phones / Re: How To Protect Your Social Media Accounts From Being Hacked by Cyb3rhack3r: 7:55am On Apr 24, 2018
NaijaTechGuy:
I've actually been getting calls from friends and blog readers lately that their accounts and that of their friends are being hacked. This unethical trend just skyrocketed this year. It's very annoying.


I've also gotten a mail from Facebook previously that said that someone requested to change my password.
We all know that the perpetrators of these crimes are usually internet fraudsters (g-boys) looking for old accounts that they feel Facebook cannot block when they're carrying out their fraudulent business online. In this post, I'll be using Facebook as an example but every method below applies to all social networks


One day, you may actually decide to check up on your friend on Facebook, then you'll end up seeing a white man or lady in an account that you're very certain that it was your friends account.

I've come up with a couple of ways to protect your Facebook account, please don't forget to share this to friends as well.

1. Anti-Phishing Techniques

Phishing is the easiest trick in any hackers arsenal or weaponry. All it needs is for the victim to click on a link and log with in their original details on a fake page.


If you're still logged in to Facebook and a link requests that you type in your Facebook details again, do not do that. There's a high chance your details will be stolen once you type in your details on the page. This is quite different from the pages that ask you to log in with Facebook and requests access to your account.


2. Verify and Update Your Account Details


Most people feel this is not necessary but It's very important. I woke up this morning and tried to log in to my account via a browser and I was asked to verify my identity with my number. I'm like okay that shouldn't be a problem until I saw the number I was asked to verify. A number I hadn't used in years.


I remembered that I was still logged in on the main Facebook app on my device so I quickly went to my profile > about me and deleted the old number entirely from the account.
I'm still wondering why Facebook will actually tell me to verify my identity with a number that isn't active.

The only logical explanation is that someone was messing with my account and Facebook had to lock it down till my identity was verified.

If you have an email address, make sure to add it to your account and also update your phone number as well.

Use Your Real Name On Your Account

Let's assume that the damage done to your account was extremely bad. Facebook might decide to ask you to upload an ID. If your name on Facebook is Mhiz Slay Donkey, which kind of ID do you think will unlock the account. Using your real name on Facebook has numerous advantages.


2FA Protection
Two Factor Authentication. This is the last resort but pretty much secure though. In this case, Facebook sends you a link or pin anytime you log in to your account to verify your identity.

You can then click the link or input the pin on the log in page.

The only downside of this is that you may not be able to log in to your account anytime you lose your phone number or 2FA Device.

So that's pretty much everything I think you need to know. Stay Safe.

Phones / Re: Oukitel Releases Clone Of Iphone X That Costs Less Than N60,000 - Oukitel U18 by Cyb3rhack3r: 10:09am On Feb 19, 2018
NaijaTechGuy:
When it comes to cloning devices, I'll always give Chinese manufacturers a 5 star rating.This time
Oukitel put a notch on its U18 smartphone making it look like a perfect clone of the iPhone X.

Check out the comparison between the iPhone X and Oukitel U18


If you think the copying would have ended there but it didn't , they also copied the lower edge of the Galaxy S8 – and even the Samsung icons – so the screen still does not occupy as much space as possible on the front.

The “ultrawide” screen has a 21:9 ratio, used in CinemaScope or anamorphic movies. However, most of the content available for mobile phones are formatted at 16:9.

The 5.85-inch screen has a resolution of only 1512 x 720 makes it perfect for watching HD videos.

Coming to the specs, the Oukitel U18 has a MediaTek MT6750T processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage coupled with an expandable storage, and a 4000mAh battery. There is also a fingerprint reader at the back.


It has a dual rear camera with 16 and 5-megapixel sensors made by Sony. Meanwhile, the front camera has 13-megapixel. It also comes with something I'd call a gimmicky “Face ID” feature, which is just the same facial recognition built into Android since the Ice Cream Sandwich – and that can be fooled by a photo as well.


Oukitel is selling this device in limited edition. It will produce 999 units, which will cost US $160.
