Technology Market / “kara Nigeria Should Be Exempted From Online Sellers Of Tobacco by saleskara: 4:16pm On Sep 13, 2018
The CEO of KARA Nigeria, Mr Saheed Balogun reacted on the story published by Premium Times on Tuesday 11, 2018, on the account that ‘online retailers’ in Nigeria are defying the tobacco control law enforced by National Tobacco Control Act (NTCA). The CEO in a statement signed on Wednesday, 12th September, 2018 stated that KARA Nigeria doesn’t involve in selling any tobacco or its by-products.



He said “The attention of KARA Nigeria (online shopping) has been drawn to an investigative story published by Premium Times with the caption ”How Nigeria’s online stores flout country’s tobacco law” on its website page on Tuesday, 11th September, 2018. We want to state categorically that the investigation carried out was almost generalized which in the module operand of KARA Nigeria, the story is absolute false, untrue and a misrepresentation of facts. KARA Nigeria doesn’t sells tobacco or anything relating to it to customers generally irrespective of age”.

The story published by Premium Times which partly read ‘Online retailers in Nigeria are defying the tobacco control law and continue to make brisk business selling tobacco and its products to the public through their websites’ is not true considering ‘all’ online retailers in Nigeria, he insisted. He continues: ‘in KARA Nigeria, we are proud to say that we are exempted from the story – we don’t sell tobacco or packs of cigarettes and any other by-products of tobacco as generalized and or postulated by Premium Times’.

‘It is also pertinent to note that Premium Times never put any call or email to KARA Nigeria before publishing the story in a general term. We therefore demand that Premium Times should carry out its investigative story thoroughly and exempt us (KARA Nigeria ) from subsequent one. It is a false accusation and wrong generalisation on our reputation’.

He stated that, ‘KARA Nigeria as an online marketing agency in Nigeria is duly established with a very clear and unambiguous mandate to regulate, control and supervise online marketing. In our regulation, we consider tobacco not worthy of selling because it is harmful to the body if not properly controlled and there is no mechanism to monitor who buys it so that we won’t contradict the provision of NTCA. And we have been faithfully to this mandate. We are proud to say that there is no time or point in which we indulge in sells of tobacco and we won’t for any reason’.

Premium Times quoted two section of NTCA constitution: ‘in Section 15(4) of NTCA stipulates that ‘A person shall not sell or offer to sell or distribute tobacco or tobacco products through mail, internet or other online devices”. In Section 15(2), it states that ‘Prior to any tobacco or tobacco product sale or trade, the seller or trader shall verify the age of the purchaser by checking any form of official identification prescribed by law”. He again explained that KARA Nigeria is aware of the two sections of NTCA quoted by premium times.

“We reinstate that KARA Nigeria does not contravene any part of NTCA constitution quoted by Premium Times and we are not affected by the law since in KARA Nigeria we do not engage in selling tobacco or any other materials related to it”.

Conclusively, he said ‘KARA Nigeria will for this reason want to use this medium to correct the incorrect notion fashioned by that publication in the minds of its members, students, partners, affiliates, organizations, institutions, etc and wishes to put the record straight that KARA Nigeria has not involved in selling tobacco’.

‘KARA Nigeria will also like to advise journalists to always confirm their facts from authentic and reliable sources within the organization thoroughly rather than rushing to press, especially to promote the interest of the masses responsibly’.

Technology Market / Nokia 5.1 (2018) Price, Specifications And Features by saleskara: 10:06am On Jul 11, 2018
The Finnish multinational company is back again with the upgraded version of the trio Nokia Smartphone devices it launched last year. After the global sales of the last year device, HMD Global deem it fit to upgrade the mid-range devices to bring some of the more premium phone aspects down to more affordable price points.

The new handsets are the Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1, and they are the successors to the Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 2 from 2017.

The key change for 2018 is that the Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1 are making the switch to an 18:9 form factor, much like the mid-range Nokia 7 Plus. The Nokia 3.1 continues to be powered by a MediaTek chipset like the older Nokia 3, but this time around HMD is using a MediaTek SoC in the Nokia 5.1 as well, touting significant gains in performance.

The phone has a slightly bigger display compare to the 2017 version with a thinner body and reduced bezels on the side. Nokia 5.1 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display (1080p) in the 18:9 aspect ratio, compared to the 16:9 aspect ratio on the previous generation variant of the Nokia 5 and a dimension of 151.1 x 70.7 x 8.2 mm.  On the design front, Nokia 5.1 also has more rounded edges and the fingerprint sensor was moved to the back.  The device unibody design eliminates the need for antenna lines, resulting in a cleaner look.

Under the hood, the key change is that the Nokia 5.1 is the processor. The device is now powered by a MediaTek Helio P18 chipset, with HMD saying the octa-core SoC delivers 40% more performance over last year's Snapdragon 430 which comes with eight CPU cores clocked up to 2.0GHz and a Mali T720 GPU which helps produce an optimum performance with less power consumption and also helps perform very fast.

Technology Market / How To Run Two Whatsapp Account On Your Double SIM Android Phone by saleskara: 2:49pm On May 10, 2018
WhatsApp is one of the biggest platforms for online messaging which uses the internet data to send the messages which include text, images, videos, GIF, documents, user location, audio clips, phone contacts and voice notes to other users etc. You can even have a video chat on WhatsApp. WhatsApp Messenger is an end-to-end encrypted application for smartphones.

Today uses of Android smartphones is getting increased and many peoples are connected to the internet with friend, family and their Relatives. Nowadays most people use smartphones to access their online accounts, it is recorded that most Smartphones are two or Dual Sim device which means there is room for you to use two SIM on one single device, however, this is not quite enjoyable if we are so restricted to the account we can manage on our devices. Whatsapp for time past has been recorded to only allow one account on one device so, even if you have two different SIM you can only choose one to use for WhatsApp on your phone, but now here comes the solution to this.

This comes easily to some Android devices because many manufacturers have already created settings for dual WhatsApp. Many Chinese manufacturers allow you to create clones of apps, which can then be used with a dual-SIM setup. For example, on Honor's EMUI skin, the feature is called App Twin. On Xiaomi phones it's called Dual Apps. Vivo calls it App Clone, while Oppo calls it Clone App. The way each of these companies has set it up varies a little, so you'll want to check specific information for your handset, but we've listed the steps for some of the popular brands first. In case your phone doesn't support this feature, there's one more workaround you can try, listed at the end.

STEPS TO TAKE

If you have an Oppo, Xiaomi or Honor then the steps you need to follow are incredibly simple, and they're also very similar across all three manufacturers, which is why we've gathered them together in one place. In all three cases, you'll start by installing WhatsApp on your phone via Google Play. After that, you can clone the app in the phone's settings.

Here are the detailed steps to run two WhatsApp accounts on your Xiaomi phone, but it's very similar to the other two as well: https:///2KP713v

After you've installed WhatsApp, go to Settings.
Tap on Dual Apps. On Honor phones, this is called App Twin, and on Oppo, it's Clone App.
You'll see a list of apps that can work with the feature, and toggles on the side. Turn the toggle on to clone any app.
However, all this setting is only meant for devices that support App Cloning, for devices without this feature, then this solution is more applicable to you.

There are different apps created for this purpose, however, our suggestion on choosing which we think is best is the Parallel Space which is the most downloaded dual WhatsApp app on Google Play.

Parallel "space"  this app creates a Space where you can install apps, which allows you to clone different apps.

STEPS TO INSTALL PARALLEL SPACE
Make sure you have WhatsApp already installed on your device.

Step 1. Download and install Parallel Space App on your Android device.

Step 2. Open the App and look for WhatsApp.

Step 3. Now right check on WhatsApp and click on ‘Add to Parallel Space’

Step 4. Once the process is over, click and open the WhatsApp in Parallel space.

Step 5. Now you can enter any other number of your choice on your Parallel Space WhatsApp. And you can enjoy 2 WhatsApp accounts in your single phone.

Another way to run a Dual WhatsApp account on your Android device is through WhatsApp Business, WhatsApp newest feature which enables you to have a business presence on WhatsApp, communicate more efficiently with your customers, and help you grow your business.

If you have separate business and personal phone numbers, you can have both WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger installed on the same phone, and register them with different numbers, on  the other hand, you can also install WhatsApp Business on the same Android device and access two different WhatsApp accounts simultaneously even though if you are not owning any business.

Technology Market / Amazon Will Stop Selling All Google Nest Products by saleskara: 10:07am On Mar 07, 2018
The war between the two biggest tech company is not heading to settlement anytime soon, the battle has now escalated to the level at which each company will not promote the other's business product.

According to Business Insider, Amazon's retail team told Nest on a call that the e-commerce website won't be selling the Google's product Nest in their marketplace and as a result. The call hinted that the order came from as high as CEO Jeff Bezos. Though name calling was not involved, however, the word from the Top will be associated with no other than the CEO.

As a result of this, Nest decided to stop selling any of its products through Amazon, stating that it is either its full portfolio of devices or nothing meaning the limited number of Nest devices listed on Amazon today are expected to disappear from the site once current inventory is sold out, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Tracing back to recent issues between the two leading company, a conclusion could be drawn that Amazon action is a response to Google’s decision to remove YouTube from all Fire TV products and Amazon's Alexa-powered the Echo Show with the claim that  Amazon products violate YouTube's terms of service.

However, there have been comments on Amazon's action, though the accusation as not been commented on by Amazon confirming the genuineness, and as a result, the belief of customers was strengthened stating that this action was taken in a feud for smart device sales.

"It’s definitely not pro-consumer, but companies favoring their own ecosystems or distribution channels rarely have the consumer’s best interests in mind," said Avi Greengart, research director for consumer devices at GlobalData. "It is, however, understandable from a strategic perspective. Amazon and Google are both trying to build a solution set around AI and the digital home, and the more a consumer is locked into one ecosystem, the less likely they are to be as deeply engaged with the other." He pointed out that Barnes & Noble, for instance, doesn't sell Amazon's Kindles, and Apple is also very selective of which third-party brands it puts on shelves in its own stores.

As a confirmation of this claim, we should be informed that Amazon announced it is buying Ring, a company that makes an extremely successful video doorbell, for roughly $1 billion. That's likely a place where Amazon will compete with Google's Nest.
Nest is Google's smart home products division. It makes devices like connected cameras, thermostats, smoke detectors, and security systems. Google bought Nest in 2014 in a $3.2 billion deal. Nest later became its own company after Google reorganized into the Alphabet conglomerate, only to be reabsorbed back into Google in February. Nest is Google's strong tool to better compete with Amazon.

As a matter of fact, this war is just between the two giant not involving other smart home products from other companies. For example, Lighthouse, an AI-powered connected camera made by a startup of the same name, is available on Amazon. Products from August, a connected home company best known for its smart door locks, are also available to buy on Amazon, along with products from several other smart home device manufacturers.

Amazon has built up an early lead in voice-controlled computing thanks to Alexa and its line of Echo devices. while Google also introduced the Google Assistant, a rival to Amazon Alexa and the Google Home speakers, which compete with the Amazon Echo and rapidly gaining market traction.
These two company has always been head by head in the struggle for smart device champ but is this even rational? Though it may be legal according to the US anti-trust law "It's probably not illegal," Sagers said. "It's ugly... but American law says even monopolists have broad freedom to choose with whom they deal" but rationally is it legal?

The battle between this two giant will affect their customers more because this battle is synonymous with two fighting elephant knowing full well that it is the grass on the field that will take the fall.

Jobs/Vacancies / Google New Job Search Experience For All Unemployed Youth by saleskara: 10:30am On Mar 02, 2018
On Thursday, March 1, 2018, Google launched another feature to its search engine ‘New job search experience’ to help millions of job seekers in Nigeria find employment opportunities.

The search engine giant, Google shows its concern for the Africa job seekers by introducing a new job search experience designed to help job seekers find employment opportunities.
“Finding employment is still very difficult for many people,” said Google South Africa country director Luke Mckend. “With unemployment in South Africa so high‚ this new job search experience will help the millions of South Africans searching for new opportunities. We believe that the web allows anyone‚ anywhere‚ of any age‚ to grow their business‚ learn the skills they need to get a job‚ to grow in their career‚ become an entrepreneur or developer. This new jobs search tool will be a key driver for connecting job seekers to open opportunities..."

This new search experience I say will be a very helpful innovation allowing every person using their phone or computer to search on Google for job search to get streamlined experience while exploring, researching and finding relevant and local job postings.

“Users will be able to view at-a-glance details about the posting, such as job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship, as well as detailed information should a job be of interest.

Users can also use Google Maps integration for job search within a stated location, and if they are signed in, they can even see how long it will take to commute to the job from home.
To even make your job search easy Google added a GET ALERT button in order to get a notification for a new job opportunity matching your last search job description.

Juliet Chiazor the country director said due to the fact that this experience is an open ecosystem, Google invited all job sites, platforms, and employers both big and small to integrate with them and make their jobs eligible to display in the new jobs search experience. With this, any employer can integrate its content and job opportunities through an open structured schema.org web markup standards by Google support. in addition, Google is also collaborating with companies such as Jobberman, Job Mail, NGCareers, MyJobMag and other job resource websites to make this work.

This new search experience has finally help broken the existing job employment crises where only the connected applicant knows of the openings in the work-force, leading to many job seekers relying more on their well-connected relatives to place them or “refer” them to vacancies which of course will happen after giving them bribes, as a result, job vacancies ended up being awarded to people who are less qualified, leaving the well qualified but less-connected job seekers doomed to years of unemployment and after a while, they would outgrow the required job entry-level age.
The Seach Giant has brought back the old job opportunities information, however, in an advance and stressfree way. During the 90's the newspaper is the most informative means of knowing any job opening opportunities, and now all needed is to pick up your phone and search at any given time anywhere.

Google has shown its diligence and effort to fulfill and stand by the company's mission “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”.

It is now a competition  between  the two powerful middle-end smartphone producing company in Nigeria as this 2018, marks the beginning of a full-screen display device by Tecno launching the Tecno Camon CM in the early days of the year and now at the end of the second month Infinix Mobility also launched its version of full-screen device under the S series to continue the S Family, now we have the new Infinix S3.

Infinix S3
Many manufacturers are going for 18:9 aspect ratio displays, giving buyers more options to choose from. Infinix is the latest to join that club featuring great and alluring specification worth more than its price.

Infinix S3 Design 
Infinix S3 is a 5.65-inch HD IPS Capacity Touchscreen with the 18:9 aspect ratio giving the phone a slim and narrow shape. S3 is made of good quality plastic body and has curved edges that help grip it quite well. It measures 152.30 x 72.80 x 8.40 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 150.00 grams. Infinix has also opted for on-screen navigation buttons which is a common trend in smartphones these days. Above the display, Infinix has placed a metallic speaker grille, a selfie camera, and a dual-LED flash. The loudspeaker, Micro-USB port, and primary microphone are positioned at the bottom, while the 3.5mm headphone jack is at the top. The metallic power button is located on the side which makes it easy to distinguish the button from the others. The S3 like its predecessor comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which is placed a little higher than its predecessor.

This 5.65-inch IPS LCD  touchscreen device comes with a Full HD resolution of  720 pixels by 1440 pixels just like its predecessor resulting to 300ppi. S3 is Infinix first full-screen display device with 18:9 aspect ratio, this device features an immersive experience when consuming videos, reading books, capturing images or even surfing the Internet. The Full display means multitasking and users been offer opportunity to split their screen (18:9 screen support single window 1:1 split-screen operating with only one step), so that they can handle more than one task while still being able to see more on either of the split windows, and a display colour up to 6 million.

Details are well preserved when there is some light around, and you will see grain only when zooming into full size. The 20-megapixel selfie fixed-focus camera comes with a dual-LED flash.  it features beautify mode which enabled a quick toggle for a bokeh effect allowing you to capture a clear picture without blur. It also features a  video recording resolution of 1080p for both cameras.

Infinix S3 Processor
Infinix S3 is powered by Snapdragon 430 chipset, coupled with Octa-Core 1.4ghz CPU and a color display up to 6 million which helps produce an optimum performance with less power consumption & more which helps the device to work very fast.

Where To Buy Infinix S3 in Nigeria.

Looking for where to buy the Infinix in Nigeria ?. that is going to take some time because presently the phone is not yet in Nigeria, it has only been launched in Indian.

Jobs/Vacancies / Thinking On Becoming A Flight Attendant? How, Salary And Requirement. by saleskara: 2:54pm On Feb 16, 2018
Do you have the desire of having a job which allows you see the world? If your answer to these questions is YES, then been a Flight Attendant or once called Stewardesses is your gateway. However, being a Flight attendant is more than just serving drinks in the air.

This particular line of work has in most cases been attributed to ladies but the world is changing so is its system, even men now work as a flight attendant, however, it is minimal which is understandable due to the tender nature which will be utilized on the job.

A flight attendant's job is mainly concerned with the safety of airline passengers and crew. He or she responds to any emergencies that occur on the aircraft and makes sure everyone follows regulations.

Being a Flight attendant comes with requirement just like any other job, however, this line of work requires both physical, psychological, behavioral and educational qualifications.

Qualifications for Flight Attendant.

Behavioural Requirement

Being an airline flight attendant comes with certain personal demands that must be met.

 Must be Jovial. Been jovial means being friendly, we all have different traits and temperaments which explain why we all behave the way we do. However, a Flight attendant must be friendly, someone that can always wear a smile on his/her face to bring a smile to others.  The ability to stay calm and collected even in the face of danger. This requirement is very important and must be possessed to be well qualified.

Customer Care. The primary role of a flight attendant is to provide excellent customer service, because, at times, they may deal with passengers who are drunk or display disruptive behavior. How the situation is handled shows the level at which you can relate to passengers and control situations.



Physical Requirement

Each airline has different physical requirements, however, these are basic requirements:

Height range. Most airlines require their hostess to be between 5’0” - 5’ 1” and 5’8” - 6’3”. However, this is not applicable to all airlines as some do not have height requirements.
Age. No organization wants an under age as a worker, the same thing is applicable to this line of work. The minimum age required for a flight attendant is ranged between 18-21 years old depending on the airline, however, there is no maximum age as long as every medical requirement is passed.

Educational Requirement

Communication is important for every working environment and a prominent requirement and necessity for every flight attendant.

To achieve your dream of being a hostess you need education, of cos, not all airline requires a Degree but the minimum education requirement for a hostess is O'level, however, these airlines do look favorably upon people who have a  degree. Some airline, on the other hand, requires a Degree and favorably additional certification from aviation training schools which only take a maximum of one year. some airline has their own aviation training schools however, this is not a requirement for applying to airlines as there will be a training if you’re hired as a flight attendant by the airline.



Duties of Flight Attendants
Flight attendants typically do the following:

Participate in pre-flight briefings with the pilots, to discuss cabin conditions and flight details
Conduct pre-flight inspections of emergency equipment
Demonstrate the use of safety equipment and emergency equipment
Ensure that passengers have their seatbelts fastened when required and that all other safety requirements are observed
Serve and sell beverages, meals, or snacks
Take care of passengers' needs, particularly those with special needs
Reassure passengers during the flight, such as when the aircraft hit turbulence
Administer and coordinate emergency medical care, as needed
Provide direction to passengers, including how to evacuate the aircraft in an emergency

Salary Package
Every airline has their own salary package, however, the average salary earned by a cabin crew member/ flight attendant is 100,000 depending on the airline. In addition to this, some flight attendants receive an allowance for meals and accommodations while working away from home. Although attendants are required to purchase an initial set of uniforms and luggage, the airlines usually pay for replacements and upkeep but all this allowance depends on the airline.

Technology Market / Samsung Unveils 146-inch TV “the Wall,” World’s First Microled TV by saleskara: 2:40pm On Feb 14, 2018
Samsung Electronics is taking home theater to an entirely different level as they introduced to the new face of TV technology “The Wall” – the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED 146-inch TV – at the 2018 CES event. The modular, self-emitting MicroLED 146” TV display was featured alongside Samsung’s latest innovations in display technology, demonstrating how television is evolving to offer consumers an outstanding viewing experience while acting as a centralized connected smart hub to enhance everyday life and for beautification.

Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said: “At Samsung, we are dedicated to providing consumers with a wide range of cutting-edge screen experiences.” This statement has been proven to be true as Samsung is known for customers satisfaction.

This massive 146-inch television comes with a  4K resolution apart from the fact that this TV comes in a larger size, the Wall is a showcase for Samsung’s newest display technology called MicroLED and the world’s first consumer modular MicroLED television, which is the latest counter to OLED screens, which LG has been touting for several years (though prices on those sets have been prohibitive until recently). Jonghee Han further continues with his speech saying  "The Wall’ represents another breakthrough. He says it can transform into any size and delivers incredible brightness, sharp picture quality, color gamut, color volume and black levels."

What I meant by First Ever Modular TV with MicroLED.
Samsung’s “The Wall,” a 146-inch modular TV with MicroLED technology delivers incredible definition, without restrictions on size, resolution or form meaning people can expand (or reduce) the size of their screen by adding or removing modules as their needs change. The screen can adapt to serve different purposes, such as creating a wall-size display for multiple spaces. (The edges of the modules are not noticeable when content is playing on the screen.) Featuring a module-based, bezel-less design, Samsung 146-inch TV also exemplifies its self-emitting TV with micrometer (µm) scale LEDs – which are much smaller than current LEDs, and serve as their own source of light.

The MicroLED technology featured on The Wall eliminates the need for color filters or backlight, yet allows the screen to offer consumers the ultimate viewing experience. Also, the MicroLED screen excels in durability and effectiveness, including luminous efficiency, the light source lifetime and power consumption, setting the standard for future screen technology.

The MicroLED technology also has the potential for infinite contrast just like OLED TVs because each LED can turn on and off individually. The smartTV can also achieve a massive 2000 nits brightness, arguably higher than any LED LCD we’ve seen. Samsung is yet to disclose the TV’s resolution but it can achieve DVI-P3 color. There is no word yet on the pricing or availability but Samsung revealed that the MicroLED TV will ship this year.

Technology Market / Lg Display's 88-inch 8k Oled Tv The Future Of Tv Technology. by saleskara: 2:06pm On Feb 13, 2018
The Korean display powerhouse gave us all yet another invention to awe about as we are given a peek into the future of huge, sleeky and extremely high-resolution OLED TV at the 2018 CES summit in Vegas. The company showed off a new 88-inch OLED display with an 8K resolution,  this will be an upgrade to the already existing LG 77-inch panel with 4K resolution. Though Samsung has an 88-inch TV, however, it’s “only” 4K and QLED’s based TV. As much as an upgrade is expected for the LG 77" 4K OLED, this is more than we anticipated. Most  TV world is still busy transitioning into the 4K era but this is a long and thick line drawn by LG.

Officially, the new TV’s resolution measures at 7680 x 4320, which is twice the vertical resolution and twice the horizontal resolution of a typical 4K panel.  This change could have only been imagined this early but not foreseen. LG 88-inch OLED TV will deliver the sort of intense pixel density that makes OLED panels look even more stunning than usual. Though this 8K TV has long been shown or broadcasted about by top companies like the Sharp, Sony, Samsung, LG, and others, and now this talk seems to be really serious, however, I believe it will be long before the 8K TVs can replace the 4K TVs.   Despite the number of 4K TVs on the market, we have bearly transit to the 4K TV dream. It took years for HD to replace SD, and going from HD to 4K as we know hasn't been easy likewise. Ofcos, we might think 4k TV is popular but how many people own it, sure, the TVs are available, but the vast majority of content shown is still HD. There is only a few 4K broadcast yet, and even the biggest 4K sources like Netflix, Amazon and Blu-ray disc offer only a small fraction of their catalogs in 4K. It's a lot easier for a TV manufacturer to add new pixels to its TV series, however, it will be hard for every TV network to completely change every of their piece to match the newly created pixel.

So here comes a question which has been knocking on my mind's door " Is 8k TV the next step in TV Technology".
Technology Market / Acer Swift 7 The World Thinnest Laptop by saleskara: 2:44pm On Feb 09, 2018
You have not yet seen the slimmest laptop in the world because if you think you have, then its time to have a rethink of what the slimmest laptop looks like.

Even though the battle to slim down laptops has slowed in recent years, that hasn’t stopped Acer from trying.

Acer showed up at CES this year with a trio of updated versions of older models, there is at least one high note: the updated Swift 7, which is even thinner than the previous version at just 8.98 millimeters thick. And with this, the second-generation Swift 7, Acer has retaken the crown for having the thinnest laptop in the world.
[/color][color=#000000]
Though it is referred to as the thinnest Laptop that does not render it less functional. There is more than one improvement in the Acer Swift 7 as the Swift 7 now sports a sleek body design from its black, anodized aluminum screen lid, a larger 14-inch screen, a new i7 CPU (the old Swift 7 was limited an i5), a built-in fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage.

Unfortunately, the keyboard does not have a backlit, which is quite unexpected cos, for, over a grand, we expected keyboard backlighting to come standard. Acer also managed to get away with a smartphone-sized, 2,770mAh battery inside, we think it could’ve been included.

However, though the screen was upgraded from a 13.3-inch panel to a 14-inch one, it’s still only at a 1080p resolution which makes it still running among its competitor.

Another small annoyance is that like Dell’s XPS 13, the Swift 7's webcam is located below the screen.

On the big side, the Swift 7 may have the upper hand has it has integrated 4G LTE connectivity, through an Intel XMM modem that supports both Nano SIM and eSIM technology and comes out of the box with a free, 1GB Transatel profile to give users a taste which is still almost oddly rare in laptops and that may be enough to get more users on board. And of course, 802.11ac Wi-Fi with a 2x2 MIMO radio and Bluetooth round out wireless connectivity is also embedded in it.

This laptop is expected out in the US by March for $1,700 (₦612,000.00) but at a money pretty high considering Dell’s new XPS 13 starts at around $1,000.

But I guess there is always a price for the best and this is the price being paid for the thinnest laptop in the world.
