https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9baSpMxBOQ

Be it self promotion, Instagram, Facebook or YouTube content, you can record the video from an average Midrange smartphone and the video will look okay.
The big issue is getting crisp audio.

In this video, I will show you how to connect external professional microphone to any smartphone and record high quality audio with your smartphone recorded videos.

I added a list of all the adapters and splitters in the video description.

Phones / Editing Videos With Smartphone Vs Windows PC: Which One Is Better? by Smartdepotng: 5:42pm On Apr 27

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy1zGQB9ZW0

Where do I Start My Video Editing Journey? Phone or PC? I started my YouTube channel a few years ago shooting videos with my midrange Android smartphone back then. I had no choice than editing with my smartphone as my PCs then were low quality.

Over the years, I've migrated to mirrorless cameras and even own a high-end PC but I still find it very easier, more efficient and more productive to edit from my (high-end) smartphones nowadays.

In this video, I and my pro video editor looked into one of the biggest questions that most persons who want to start editing video by themselves usually face. Where do I Start My Video Editing Journey? Phone or PC?

In this video I paired, Poco F3:
Snapdragon 870 CPU
Adreno 650 GPU
8GB LPDDR5 RAM
256GB UFS 3.1 ROM

VS

MSI GL65 LEONARD Gaming laptop:
-Intel core i7-10750H Gen 10
-Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
6GB Dedicated GPU
-32GB DDR4 2.6GHz RAM

The result from 4k 30FPS 1 minute video rendering was surprising considering that the laptop costs just over 3 times more than the Phone.

So, what do you think? What's your video editing preferences?

HOW TO TRANSFER FULL WHATSAPP CHAT HISTORY AND MEDIA TO A NEW PHONE WITHOUT INTERNET:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yv9kSIDUKc

You need to do backup inside WhatsApp from settings inside the WhatsApp app. Then go to the following location in your internal storage
SDcard/Android/media/com.whatsapp/WhatsApp
Copy everything in or the entire WhatsApp folder. To a safe place outside your phone.
In the new phone, install WhatsApp, open the app and Close it again. Copy the WhatsApp folder back to SDcard/Android/media/com.whatsapp/
And paste the WhatsApp folder there.
Open WhatsApp app, do your phone number verification give permission to the app to use storage. Allow it to search for backups in your phone select your recent backup from internal storage and restore.
Phones / A New Whatsapp Update That Can Wipe All Your Data In One Click by Smartdepotng: 3:20pm On Apr 07

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryiCnDzgpjQ

The latest Tech Insight video is up on YouTube, and if you use WhatsApp, this is a must-watch.
You can now (potentially) lose years of stored WhatsApp media on your phone with one click, thanks to a new WhatsApp update.

WhatsApp is one of the biggest messaging apps in the world right now but they just did something that will shock all WhatsApp users. A New WhatsApp Update That Can Wipe All Your Data In One Click is here to stay.

Before now, if you clear WhatsApp app data or uninstall the app, only your chat history will be lost and all your WhatsApp media will still be in your phone gallery but not anymore. WhatsApp has moved the WhatsApp folder in your Android phone root storage to Android/media/com.WhatsApp/WhatsApp
Unfortunately, everything stored in Sdcard/Android folder will be wiped off completely if you clear app data or uninstall the WhatsApp app. All these things happened silently without WhatsApp, Facebook or Meta saying a word to its customers.
It took me about 5 months to figure out why they did this. Thanks to Google locking down Android 12, apps are no longer allowed to scan all the internal storage. Telegram has also moved its internal storage folder to Android folder but since it stores everything in its server, you can't lose your media even if you wipe app data.

So please make a manual backup of the WhatsApp folder and let me hear from you in the comments section

Phones / 4 Things You Must Know To Avoid Online Shopping Scams: Buying Online 101 by Smartdepotng: 11:31am On Apr 05

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goP3izbFR-w

If you think that people are losing money from Ponzi Schemes, Online Shopping Scams have made people lose twenty times more and could worsen.
Thanks to COVID-19 online shopping is here to stay and will soon take over most traditional forms of buying and selling.

According to Action Fraud UK, Consumers have been conned out of more than £2.3bn in the space of a year after a “devastating surge” in scams as fraudsters exploited the pandemic. While this was only for the UK, available data shows a surge in online shopping scams globally.

The key to this increase in online shopping scams is the ignorance of many Internet users about online shopping. Knowing how to browse the internet and social media is different from buying things successfully online.


There are four basic things we explored in the video that anyone buying things online must know, understand how it works and critically consider before buying something online to avoid scam sellers.

Online shopping platforms (Customer protection).
Payment methods and processes.
Delivery and shipping.
Dispute management.
You have to know all the above to avoid being scammed online.

I gave extra bonuses in the video too.
So, please like and share and possibly leave a comment about your online shopping experience that may be helpful for others.
Thanks.

Phones / Dstv Price Hike Is Bad? Limiting Dstv App Streaming To One Device Is Worse by Smartdepotng: 5:31pm On Mar 31

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0K2iLSXIFI

DStv has just hit two devastating blows to its subscribers in one month. There is a price hike in the cost of subscription, and live streaming on the DStv app is now limited to only one device at a time. DStv Limiting App Streaming To One Device At A Time Is Worse Than Price Hike.

There may be justifiable reasons to increase price in a challenging economy, but how do you justify reducing the utility of your app with a frivolous excuse of stopping password sharing? The DStv Now app still allows you to register four devices to one account/subscription, so how are we not supposed to share passwords among the family members.

With more ads popping up while trying to watch catch up, it becomes even more confusing how DStv wants to reduce streaming to only one device at a time (It used to be two devices max).

But for Naija users, is there any viable alternative to DStv in Nigeria? Let me hear from you in the comments section.

You probably may have heard that Gcam (Google Android Camera App ported to other Android phones) can take better quality pictures than other Android phones stock camera app. It is true! Thanks to Google's software processing and advanced colour science algorithm. However, have you seen what the latest v8 of Gcam can do on the video end?

I took time to explore the Gcam v8 video something I've been longing to do for the past few years and I hope you will enjoy it.

Recording Video with your Android Phone just got better thanks to Google camera app Gcam V8+:
- Force 4K video Recording at smooth 60 Frames Per Seconds (FPS)
- One-Touch switch between Internal or External Mic
- OIS and EIS Image Stabilisation
- AF/AE Lock
- Super Low-light Video enhancements.
- And Lots More!

You can now use Facebook Reels On your iPhone Facebook app. Unfortunately, it is not shown on your Facebook app homepage like that of Android but iPhone users can now create, share and view Facebook Reels from their iPhone Facebook app.
Make sure that you update your Facebook app up to v1.0 358.0xxxx if the Reels option is not showing at all for you.

You can also save your favorite Reels but tapping on the three dot menu and select save.

You can create upto 60 seconds of Reels from your Facebook app using your camera or videos from your gallery.

Meister:
Somebody bought a Helio G35 720p phone without fast charging support 89k and actually believes it's such a good deal. Literally the only thing this phone has going for it is it's 2 years of update

I see your point but glad you pointed out 2 years of Android OS upgrade and three years of security updates if I may add.
The reason why used iPhone is costlier than Android phones is OS upgrade and quality build components. On the longer run, you will buy another Infinix or Tecno phone if you bought one last year and want to enjoy Android 13 when it comes out - you are literally spending more.
Xiaomi has a little advantage because of custom Roms but Nokia Android Software experience is better and no ads, Bloatwares and trackers.

Nice deal! What many people do not know is that you can use this phone for the next 3 years, move from Android 11 to Android 13, still get monthly security updates, the build quality will last longer and the phone won't slow down. Even the flagship Tecno and Infinix phones can't offer same User experience.

You already heard about the brand Nokia if you used phones from last Millennium and most of us know their quality.
However, do you know that Nokia now makes cheap midrange Android phones?

If you are tired of Infinix, Tecno, Itel even Xiaomi giving poor or buggy software experience, No Android OS upgrade and poor quality Hardware/Build Quality then you should give Nokia a shot as we revealed with the Nokia G20 Unboxing And Review.

Nokia brings high quality and excellent Hardware at a great price. It is priced cheaper than Samsung phones in the midrange section and has clean Stock Android without Any Bloatwares or Ads.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored video, I bought this one with my own cash. I was faced with the option of Infinix Note 11i and Nokia G20 - Nokia G20 won even though it had a lower processor but there's more to phone experience than processor power.

So, let's talk in the comments section.

There are few reasons why I like to share my smartphone Screen to my laptop and control my phone from the my Windows 10 laptop.

There is a free (native) Windows 10 feature that allows you do that - Project to this PC. Once your Android phone has Screen Cast or Screen Mirroring or Wireless Display function, then, you can project your phone to your Windows 10 PC or Laptop.

Unfortunately, Microsoft removed this feature after Windows 10 version 1903 update but in the video, I showed how to easily enable it and enjoy this wonderful feature.

Phones / How To Use Your Phone With Broken Screen Pt. 3: USB-C Display Port by Smartdepotng: 12:32pm On Mar 08

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ell0UoH5T6U

Native USB-C to HDMI display out was first brought to Android by LG G5 in February 2016 followed by the HTC 10 and Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra. Samsung and Huawei joined the USB-C display port gang in 2017 with the Samsung galaxy S8 series and Huawei Mate 20 Respectively.

The USB-C Display port is most essential when your smartphone screen or touch screen is broken.
In today's video I explained how to use this life saver feature to access and use your phone with broken screen.

This one is stress-free, just plug and play!

NB: If your phone is from Tecno or Infinix please do not try this as it won't work for your device. Xiaomi and Realme phones take note too! It won't work either.

Finally, MIUI 13 Global Stable Update Android 12 Is Out. The Chinese version of Poco F3 (REDMI K40) Received MIUI 13 Late December 2021 over two months of wait and it finally gets to global version.

This release is for EU VERSION with MIUI version SKHEUXM 13.0.3.0 and it Pilot Testers Rom which means that only select testers got the Rom. But don't worry, once testers Rom is released, it takes about 10 days for general public release.

The first thing to note here - our choice phone has all the 4G Bands in Nigeria ��
4G Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41
The 6.53" IPS LCD HD+ display is really impressive, you need to watch the video to see it in action.
5000Mah battery is dope!
5v 2Amps Charger is not fast charging but still decent for the price.
Fully Google Certified Phone out of the box - You can watch Netflix or DSTV now from your phone without issues.
MediaTek Helio G25 processor is impressive and for that price is awesome and real value for money.

Software was upgraded form Android 10 to 11 something that is not common among Entry-Level Android Smartphones.


The name of our choice phone for $90 in March 2022 is the Redmi 9A!
Higly recommended.
Let me know your choice for ₦50K brand new smart phone.
