Phones / Re: Does Having Big Phone Screen Affect The Use Of Data? by samodan(m): 2:22pm On Aug 21
Offpoint:
It does, from experience.
I don't need to write epistle about it, just simple explanation.

if you download a picture of 1000x1200 and it's 1mb by size.... resize the same picture to 150x150 and see if the size will still be the same...
trying streaming YouTube hd video on 4.5 screen phone and stream same on iPad...you'll see the difference in data consumption.

so your phone screen has a lot to do with your data consumption in times of browsing.

if you use 1gb on 4.5 screen for a week, try using 1gb on iPad for the same purpose for a week, then you'll see the difference.

anyways, web developers will understand better.

For those who still want to ask me silly questions...


COMPRESSION = REDUCTION IN SIZE/QUALITY and THE RESULTS IS LOWER DATA SIZE.
when you screen is small.. Compression steps IN.

Doesn't affect downloaded files o, before you ask me another silly question again.

You're free to argue, my comment is base on experience and practice, not just just theory.





You know this is full of shii, right?
Take a 5 inch Galaxy S6 for instance, on that phone, you can watch YouTube videos in 1440p (QHD)
Now, take an iPhone 8 plus with its 5.5 inch display, the max you can watch is 1080p (FHD)

Most 6 inch Android phones now have FHD displays.

So...

Phones / Re: Between Tecno Camon X Pro And Infinix Note 5 by samodan(m): 3:37pm On Aug 08
Donndino:

Make no mistake, am no infinix marketer. But a quick google search shows the Hot 2 received one major software upgrade. The other difference between the two: Hot 2 was a lower-level(cheap) phone and note 5 is a mid-level(more expensive) phone, support for the two can therefore not be the same.



Funny as I didn't even imply that you could be a marketer
Alright.
Phones / Re: Between Tecno Camon X Pro And Infinix Note 5 by samodan(m): 10:35am On Aug 02

Infinix have already committed to provide 2 years software and security updates for the Note 5. As a matter of fact the Note 5 has already started receiving updates, link below.
https://androidkenya.com/2018/07/infinix-note-5-july-patch/


I'm not talking about bug fixes and security patches, I'm talking of major software updates from one version of Android to another.

And why are you not saying anything about the Hot 2 I brought up? Too much truth in it?
Phones / Re: Between Tecno Camon X Pro And Infinix Note 5 by samodan(m): 3:45pm On Jul 30
Donndino:
The Infinix Note 5 Pro is so much better than Camon X Pro in terms of battery capacity, user interface (android one), software updates directly from Google. The Note 5 Pro also has a beautiful infinity display and comes with a stylus pen. The cool infinix phone is coming to the market soon.


Remember that the Infinix HOT 2 is an android one phone.

How many updates did it get

Mowee hear word abeg.

Good. People would rather say 'installmentally' instead of installments. There ain't no English word as 'installmentally'.

Back to the topic, I noticed this pay small small thing today when I wanted to make an order for TECNO Spark2 for my G. It's a very welcomed development.

CHESTER48:
you're not even using a note you're using lg v20. I've told you I run stock android direct from Google. And for your info the stock android on note 5 is far different from Google phone. Let me start
Google stock has squeeze function does note 5 have it. Except htc u12 which runs stock android now

Google has the best camera smartphone with just a single camera. No need to argue.

Google has unlimited storage to cloud. No need

Google phone can recognise the music it hears on an instant and displays on your phone.

Only phone with Google lens

First to receive update.

Only phone with AR sticker.

Anyother thing you mentioned above is all in my stock android right now. To burst your brain, you cannot change ascent color on non stock phone.

Who told you you can't scroll? To take pix. Hahaha.

Did you just say more control for always on display is not on stock android. Infact u don vex me let me include pix
Next pix is changing looks of your phone

Infact let me just upload pix. If you want to argue with me, first go get an actual Google stock with actual Google experience and don't compare note 5 with Google stock rooms. They are never the same Oga.

You can check out lineage OS rom to see how stock Google feels peace.


Before I forget, your UI is ugly sad
Phones / Re: I’m Tired Of Using Iphones All My Life by samodan(m): 4:38am On Jul 11
greenhulk:


My guy u are saying what u don't know. I've used a lot of Samsung flagships to know that Samsung experience gives u more functionality than the stock Android on pixel phones. When I say stock Android I mean the ones on pixel and not modified roms based on stock rom like the one u probably have on it phone. Yes I currently use a v20 and it still offers more functionality than a pixel 2, but not up to what u get on galaxy note 8.

For starters why don't u show me where a Google pixel 2 does scrolling screenshots or are u just saying this to get cheap points. I know the camera interface is different from the infinix note 5 with Android one but most of the other features and UI are just the same.

And u talk about Google lens as if it's a Google pixel exclusive feature lol. I laugh in Spanish. Kindly tell me what the image below is called. And that's from my v20. In case u don't know Google lens is available on all compatible devices including all Samsung flagship devices. Speak what u know bro.

Yes Google has unlimited cloud storage for pixel 2 owners but that is to compensate for the lack of SD card. Samsung Galaxy note 8 has 15gb of Samsung cloud and then another 15gb of Google cloud plus support for SD card so do the maths urself. I use Google cloud on my v20, 15gb is enough as I don't automatically save my videos to the cloud, I use it for just photos. I mean in Nigeria u don't wanna be uploading 1gb plus videos to the cloud with that the state of data in this country.

Samsung takes the stock Android and modify it to add more features. So how in the world would u think stock Android from Google has more features than Samsung exoeriebce, Samsung flagship phones have all the features of stock Android plus MORE. So how can u ever think a pixel phone has more features than a Samsung Galaxy note 8. What sense does that even make?

Please, u need to stop comparing stock Android ROMs found on the Google pixel to custom roms based on stock Android. They are different. The custom roms u have on ur galaxy s5 is very different from vanilla found on the Google pixel. U can never ever compare the controls and functionality of the always on display found on Samsung flagships to the basic ones found on Google pixel. Do ur research very well.

And it's very obvious u don't know what annotated screenshots mean. The ability to take screenshots edit them and then share without navigating away from the screen. And the best part is that the screenshot doesn't even need to be saved on ur phone, just share and it's gone. Samsung phones and LG have this feature, even iPhones now have this feature but it's not available on the Google pixel 2. Well not until Android p.





No need to say more.
If he still argues, it'd be safe to conclude that he doesn't know shii

You say you used to be a phone freak. But, I bet you never spent over a 100k buying a phone
This your backward mentality wouldn't let you.
Do you know what he does with his money, he has probably helped more people than you can in years to come (I can tell from your mentality)

Someone works hard and buys good things he likes, and some lazy peeps wee be preaching and giving advice on how to better spend money.

Phones / Re: 5 Things You Should Know About The New Infinix Note 5 Before Buying It. by samodan(m): 8:46am On Jun 26
Norman4real:
Just to correct you, it's using android one, not android go. There's a big difference.
U say a 6 inch FHD is the first on an infinix note device, but this is not true since the note 3 also had 6 inch FHD.
I see no issue with plastic body, especially if it helps keep the price low. This is still a mid range phone. If I saw plastic on a "Zero" phone then I' d have issues.
I too have concern with their option to go with a mtk but p23 is a 2018 chip and I'd prefer it over an out dated SD821 as you'd suggested.



Wow, I'd like to know your reasons for saying you prefer an weak P23 to an SD821
Even the 820 will blow the p23 outta the water in everything (Everything)
So yeah, i want to know your reasons
Thanks
