TV/Movies / Re: TSTV Africa To Start Sales Of Decoders From Monday by elektra80: 8:17pm On Dec 18, 2017
censeakay:

lol, did u think that their subcripition is base on Epl only, cable tv subscription is base on their bouquet e.g the movies that they show, series that they show e.t.c, because their subscriprion is higher than 3k doesnt mean that it is Epl or other matches that it expensive get that fact right.

So if any pay TV come out and sell you their subscription for more than 3k without any kind of live sports you are going to pay? This is why you people are so guallable. They will sell u free to air channels and u will think u are getting good stuff lol. I've been hearing people saying 'their pictures are so clear' even when it is transmitted in SD and not HD, or some watching HD content with non hd TV's, or some watching with HD TV's but not using HDMI cable for connection.

What value does moves and series channels have? Old movies for that matter because no pay TV will show you new blockbuster movies for free. If it ain't live sports then it doesn't worth paying premium for. I'll rather watch DStv access for N1,900. At least it has Disney jnr for the kids, Africa magic youruba for visitors, telemundo and zee world for the ladies, Al Jazeera for news, all local channels, super sports blitz for watching sky sports news, Nat Geo wild, E! Entertainment and a few other channels.

I think I get your point clearly now. But I think the dual camera that the P6 has is the reason why the fingerprint is absence. Tell me a dual camera phone with finger print sensor, I think it's scarce if there's any.

Lg g5, iphone 7, Huawei honor p9 to mention a few.

When I went to go get a new phone, I saw the Phantom 6, and I was like WTF is this from Tecno that is ranked among the flagship phones in Nigeria?

Mehn, this phone looks/feels so cheap to the price. Even the Phantom 5 looks way premium to it in all angles of the design.

The way it looks like now zero 4 might just end up being better than phantom 6. That is in the 'high end' budget category for the Nigerian market. That is for those that can't afford the expensive flagships from Samsung, htc, LG, Apple, Sony, etc.

I get you. But you can't get it all, look at the processor for example, one is spotting a 2.0 while one has a 1.5, this is an improvement, dual cameras on the 6 and one on the 5 are little differences that makes the 6 a little bit superior in my opinion.

Not saying the p6 is not superior. It has a better processor but nothing stops tecno from adding a fingerprint sensor when ordinary Infinix hot s and hot 4 have fingerprint sensors at almost half the price of the p6. Its like they put all their resources on the p6 plus forgetting only a few people actually want a 6 inch phone. I mean what's the use of a 6 inch phone when it doesn't have an s pen like the galaxy note? In the long run the phantom 5 might just be better than phantom 6 apart from the processor. P5 is still more expensive.

I think not all dual camera phones have fingerprint sensor. You can get a phantom 6+ with sensor and no dual camera.

It is still a step backwards in my opinion for phantom 5 to have a fingerprint sensor and then phantom 6 not to have. Look I know the p6 pro has but that's a 6 inch phone and not for everyone. A normal phone shoukdnt be more than 5.1-5.5 inches. I cant even imagine carrying a 6 inch phone that cannot do anything special. It is only understandable with the galaxy note series (even at that galaxy note is just 5.7 inches with minimum bezel).

No wonder a one year old phantom 5 is still more expensive than phantom 6.

just saw a review (from a guy in Pakistan) coz obviously Nigeria bloggers only do copy n paste and have been displaying on all their the zero 4 as having an helio x20 octa processor (I mean how is that even possible).my advice is to hold on to your zero 3 if gaming is your thing (if u love design,and photography then you probably should get it) and wait for the zero 4plus to be confirmed by infinix(coz as of now only zero 4 has a preorder page on jumia and the 4 plus only exist in Nigerian blogs) shocked shocked

I don't think this can be true. If zero 3 has Helio x10, then it doesn't make sense if zero 4 has an inferior processor. Especially when phantom 6 has Helio x10. I'm still surprised phantom 6 doesn't have a fingerprint sensor... That's a serious let down. Not everyone wants a 6 inch phone.

Don't get wrong
Cost effective. . C9 will score higher based on camera test compared to S6..

C9 will score 9.5 out of 10... Compared to Samsung J2 camera of the same price

But we are not talking about Samsung j2 here. Since u know c9 is in the class if j2 then why mention s6?

Why Una dey attack me naaa. I have handled s6 and also took some pictures with it which I compare with tecno c9 which I know too well that pictures took with c9 are more clear and vivid than than those took with s6. The only problem we Nigerians have is that we are blinded by brand name . Forget brand and bring on c9 and s6 and compare the both in camera performance.

Apart from the camera, the s6 is more powerful and solid in terms of hardware performance than the c9 which I can't compare .

Lol. What u have must be the cloned s6. The difference is very clear, I have used both. Even though camon c9 takes decent pictures, it is way way behind the s6 in picture quality. s6 has f/1.9 aperture lens and ois. Tecno are too embarrassed to tell us the aperture of the camon c9 so they don't even bother to mention it. There's more to a camera than just having 13mp , face detection and geo tagging.

Reference:


It is true we are all different. My phone is my phone. Used for calls mainly and it has to work. I cannot use an android phone for calls because the hardware it supports is just poor.

The current available flagship windows phone is lumia 950xl and it has poor hardware compared to galaxy s7, lg g5 and htc 10. Ok maybe I'm going overboard with these android flagships. Even cheaper phones like Alcatel idol 4s, ZTE axion 7, one plus 3, xioami mi5 all still have better hardware than the overly expensive lumia 950xl

Oga dey try use ur brain. U cannot generalize all windows phone just because of a bad experience. Why don't u name the particular phone that u have problem with. There are scores of windows phone out there. Lumia 520 does not have the same screen as lumia 1020, lumia 1520 has different screen from lumia 640. Haba this is not rocket science. Just because my sony xperia z screen stopped working after a scratch doesn't mean I should say all android phones have bad screen.

Please nairalanders,I will advice you guys not to buy a windows phone.any crack on the screen like this,it wont work again...i don repair the phone screen 4 times within 4month....will be porting back to Samsung galaxy next month

I don't like windows phone either but allow me to be blunt. This post is stup1d and pointless. There are lots of windows phone out there, windows is an os, so how can u say an on is bad because of poor screen? I don't get how some people reason. Microsoft, Samsung, htc all have their windows phones. It comes down to manufacturers and the kind of screen. Some windows phone come with gorilla glass while some don't come with it... Same thing with android... The low end ones don't come with gorilla glass while high end ones have gorilla glass.

I once had lumia 930, the screen got shattered and the touch was still working. My wife had xperia z and it had a single scratch on the screen and the touch stopped working. Would it also be right for me to say 'do not buy android phones ' just because of a bad experience with a Sony experia z?

Windows phone ended with 8.1 .. I was referring to windows 10 on Lumia devices as well as laptops. Don't use d FBI as an example, even d FBI has been hacked several times.

Windows 10 mobile is not too different from Windows phone 8.1 , it is still the same architecture. (don't judge with pc experience because it is different). Same way android 6.0 has the same architecture as 5.1.

Just a quick question guys, Is a MTN still offering their massive weekend data bonus?

Bonus of sub for 750mb with #500 and get 3.75gb for weekend. Sub for 3.5gb with #2000 and get 17gb for weekend.

Is this plan still active?

If Mtn did not send u a message then it probably won't work.

Really where did that 0.7% come from then..even techno or infinix isn't in America yet it's widely used here. Even at that , its still no way to judge d phone, we all started from somewhere ryt.. I am using wp and its awesome, d only problem is app updation, I ll still pick it over android over-all

It is not like windows is new bro... They ha e been around before android and ios with Windows mobile. And then windows phone 7 was created in 2010, android was created in 2008... They are not too far apart.

I member when windows phone came out in 2010, a lot of people migrated to windows because they wanted to see what they offer. In 2013 windows phone had about 3.4% markeshare. But that figure has been dropping ever since then because people that migrated to windows found out it lacked a lot of things so they all migrated back to android or ios. Last year they had close to 2% and this year it has dropped to 0.7% because windows 10 mobile is a failure. Trust me if windows is that good people will buy them and they would have more market share.

I once used lumia 930 and I had the same feeling u are having right now. Because it was my phone I believed it was the best. I tried as much as possible to ignore it's flaws, I loved it then.. used it for 9 months. But the day I changed back to android I was like 'freedom at last'. It looked like a big burden was taken off my head. That's how it is... The moment u stopped using ur windows phone and use a better android phone, then u will realize what u been missing.

Windows phone is the most secured OS. Yall don't know anything about phones operating system, u hear rumours nd come here to give rubbish advise

Yes windows phone is secure... The thing is hackers have no time to make virus for Windows phone. The main reason why viruses are made is to steal ur information. So why would a hacker waste his time to make virus for Windows phone that has only 0.7% market share when they could have used that resources to make virus for android with over 80% market share.

Amusing! I was given a lumia 1520 as a birthday present by a close friend of mine, mind you it was runing windows 8.1, at first glance I was quickly taken by the camera quality, sleek design and big screen (yeah I love big screens) but after 3 days of usage it felt like sh*the (excuse my language), the app store was just as limited as that of the blackberry, the customization option on the home screen was limited to a few changes (which gets boring pretty fast), even the settings menu was clustered and not properly organised, did you know that it didn't have any file manager? And when I tried to look for one on the store I couldn't find anything the even had halve the functions of a proper file manager, the ones that claimed to be good were to be bought, when I finally got them, they weren't worth the money! (I couldnt find me type of apps on the store) I could go on and on but in a nutshell, I used it for some weeks after which I gently removed my sim card and went back to my S6,

I have used Blackberry, IOS, Windows, and Android, and to tell you the truth, and if am being all honest, Windows sucks big time, until they make their os a bit more open so developers can get the freedom to create awesome apps and make the os lively it will remain that way, IOS would have sucked just like windows with its limitations, but the people behind it are smart enough to make design, apps and games a winning point by focusing on them to make up for the limitations!

But at the end of the day, NOTHING beats Android, not IOS, not BlackBerry and definitely not windows!

U have said it all. I just don't have the time to argue. I've used all 3 platforms, all flagship and not some mid range phones. The only os I've never used is blackberry , just not my thing. Windows still sucks, this is why they have 0.7℅ market share. Limited apps, the apps that are available have ugly UI compared to android and ios.. but how can u blame developers when microsoft cannot even make eye catching apps. The windows phone UI itself is not eye catching, oversized icons lol.
