|Phones / Oppo Enco W11 Review: Great Sound Quality With Enhanced Bass by Yinksy09(m): 9:14am On Feb 09|
OPPO Mobile one of the most reputable smartphone brands leading the Nigeria market launched the Oppo Enco W11 TWS earbuds last year. True wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds is experiencing a massive growth in Nigeria and most smartphone company have began to explore the market. Today, we are going to review the Oppo Enco W11 TWS earbuds and we hope to give you a detailed and truthful review. Is the earbud a great choice for you? You will find out at the end of the review.
Inside the Enco W11 box
A simple white box packaging with the product specifications at the back and the Oppo Enco W11 branding design at the front. Inside the box, the charging case is what you first see then the warranty card, quick start guide, extra ear tips ( small, medium, large included) and USB type-C cable.
Oppo Enco W11 specifications:
Bluetooth version 5.0
Noise reduction during calls
20-hour battery life
Intelligent touch controls
IPS5 rated water and dust resistance
Bluetooth range : 10m
Earbud Weight : 4.4g
Charging case: 35.5g
Charging case, with 400 mAh battery capacity
Earbuds with 40 mAh rechargeable, lithium-ion battery
Voice assistant support – depends on the brand and model of the device.
Colour : White
OPPO Enco W11 design and body
The design of the Enco W11 comes in a pill like shaped and glossy white charging case with a LED charging indicator below the opening by the side and the USB type- C charging port at the back. The hinge of the charging case is made of plastic and might easily break if user is not handled carefully. The case is very easy to close because of the magnets attached to the hinge but quite difficult to open and requires two hands. The two earbuds also sit comfortable into the case while charging because of the magnets.
The oval shaped-earbuds are light to wear and sit comfortably in my ear. You can always change the ear tips to find the exact size that fits your ear. I was impressed with the way the Enco W11 earbuds sits comfortably in the ear during my early morning exercise, walking on the street, sleeping, riding on the bike without the fear of dropping them.
The wireless earphones according to Oppo is sweat-proof and comes with IP55 dust and water resistance ratings as well which means it can be used during work out sessions and other related activities. We recommend the device for work out sessions with less sweat but should not be used for swimming or during heavy downpour.
Using the Enco W11 touch control
To increase or decrease the volume press and hold the earbuds.
Voice assistant ( for supported brands and model only), it can be activated by tapping three times.
To play/pause, tap once
For next/previous track, tap twice
To answer/end a call tap twice.
To reset the earbuds, place both earbuds into the chat being case then press and hold the right (r) earbuds until the indicator flashes red three times.
Audio performance and connectivity
The sound quality for the Oppo Enco W11 is great especially when you play music simultaneously on the left and right earbuds. It comes with 8mm dynamic driver and support advanced audio coding ( AAC)/ sub band codec (SBC) which gives high sound quality and makes the performance great. The wireless earphones have two microphones on each earbuds.
The Enco W11 connects to supported devices using the Bluetooth 5.0 chip having a range of 10m. The Bluetooth transmits sound to each earbuds using a stable connection and producing great sound.
Calling with the Enco W11 didn’t really meet my expectation because I used it to call at different locations and interval to be sure it wasn’t affected by network. Yet it was difficult to hear sometimes and the caller couldn’t hear me easily. The harmonic sound you get because of the enhanced bass while listening to your favorite music and watching movies is wow!. The noise reduction is not the best but still does the work and I didn’t expect to get a perfect noise reduction with that amount the Enco W11 is being sold. I advice you always use the earbuds indoors to pick calls or in an environment not too noisy.
The Enco W11 charging case comes with a 400 mAh battery capacity and the earbuds is 40 mAh.
According to Oppo after testing in the laboratory using an Oppo standard charger, after a single charge the battery of the earbuds should last 5 hours with 50% volume and 20 hours with the charging case. The charging time for the earbuds or charging the earbuds and case together is 2 hours.
My earbuds lasted for the first four hours with constant music playtime at 70% volume and it took me about 2 hour 30 minutes to charge the earbuds. The earbuds was charged three times using the charging case before it went low.
The LED light in front of the vase indicates the charging status and battery level. The green light indicates fully charged or almost charged, yellow light indicates at 50% battery level or below and red means very low which is less than 10%. The earbuds will only charge when they are both in the case with the lid closed
Immediately I removed the earbuds from the charging case for the first time, it started pairing automatically with my iPhone XS Max. To pair device with the Enco W11, turn on your Bluetooth device and search for “OPPO Enco W11” then select.
Oppo also made the quick pairing feature available for only selected Oppo devices and models. For quick pairing hold your Enco W11 near the unlocked Oppo phone then follow instructions on the screen.
To turn off or put the earbuds to sleep, put it back into the charging case. Anytime you wish to pair with a new device, always disable Bluetooth feature on your present device for the earbuds to be available for pairing.
The sound quality with enhanced bass is good coupled with an average battery life that last up to 4 hours which should be improved on. Noise reduction ,IPS5 rated water and dust resistance are my best features after using the Enco W11. You should buy one if you are looking for an affordable wireless headphone with the few limitations mentioned.
Price and availability
OPPO Enco W11 true wireless headphones sells for 18,000 naira on konga while on Jumia it is sold for about 15,000 naira and you can purchase it from any offline store nationwide.

Instagram rolls out “Recently Deleted”, a feature to help you manage your content. It allows users review and restore deleted messages , photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos and stories in the Instagram app.
According to the Photo sharing platform in a blogpost, the feature is also an additional protection to help prevent hackers that target Instagram accounts and delete posts you have shared.
“We know hackers sometimes delete content when they gain access to an account, and until now people had no way of easily getting their photos and videos back. Starting today, we will ask people to first verify that they are the rightful account holders when permanently deleting or restoring content from Recently Deleted.”
Delete any post on the app and it will appear in a separate section of your profile for 30 days. The post can’t be viewed by anyone except the account owner. It can be restored anytime within 30 days and any deleted content will automatically be permanently removed after the 30-day window. The feature is similar to the “recently deleted” folder in the Photos app on iOS.
How it works?
Photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos and stories you choose to delete are removed from your account immediately and moved to the Recently Deleted folder. The new Recently Deleted feature comes in addition to Instagram’s archive.
To access your deleted content, during those 30 days follow the instructions below:
In Instagram, tap on profile in the bottom right corner
Tap the three line icon in the top right corner and choose settings > account
Tap Recently Deleted
Choose the Photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos and stories you want to restore or permanently delete.

|Travel / Air Peace Nigeria Takes Delivery Of The First Embraer E195-E2 In Africa by Yinksy09(m): 5:33pm On Jan 28|
Air Peace took delivery of a brand new E195-E2 from São José dos Campos in Brazil to Nigeria. It’s the first of 13 of the big E2s that the carrier has ordered. The Nigerian airline is the launch operator for the E195-E2 in Africa.
Air Peace is also the first airline to configure a premium cabin with our staggered seat option. Each of the 12 Business Class seats is slightly offset from the other to give more space and privacy. There are three rows of seats arranged two-by-two at 51-inch pitch. Passengers by the windows have unobstructed access to the aisle; they don’t need to awkwardly step over their seat mates or ask them to move.
There are large overhead bins on both sides of the aircraft. This is different from other configurations that have a narrow bin along one side of the premium cabin that transitions to a larger bin at the start of the economy cabin.
The new 124-seat E2s complement the airline’s eight 50-seat E145s flying with Air Peace Hopper. The Embraer fleet will create greater regional and domestic connectivity from the carrier’s Lagos hub.
The Chairman and CEO of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema, said “The E195-E2 is the perfect aircraft to expand our domestic and regional operations. We are aware of the aircraft’s impressive economic performance as well as its unique configuration, the major reasons we placed an order for this aircraft. It is also a historic feat as Air Peace will be the first to operate this aircraft model in the whole of Africa.
The E195-E2 aircraft will further help us actualise our ambition of connecting not just the whole of Nigeria, but the entire African continent, while feeding long-haul flights from our Lagos hub. The acquisition will enable us to deliver on our ‘no-city-left-behind’ initiative, which is underpinned by our goal to reduce the air transportation burden of Africans“.
Cesar Pereira, vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa, Embraer Commercial Aviation said in a tweet, “Handing over beautiful new jets to our customers is a favourite activity for everyone at Embraer. Doing so in the current circumstances is a boost for us all as we adapt to the changing environment. This is a fabulous start to the year for everybody at Air Peace and Embraer.”
The E195-E2 124-seat aircraft will complement the 8 ERJ145s in the fleet of its subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper. The Nigerian airline has also announced its route expansion from February 2021, to meet the air transportation needs of Nigerians. This is in keeping with its vision to interconnect various cities across Nigeria.

|Computers / Whatsapp Rolls Out Additional Security Feature For Web And Desktop Versions by Yinksy09(m): 9:46am On Jan 28|
Popular instant messaging platform, WhatsApp today announced that it has started to roll out a new security feature for WhatsApp Web and Desktop: face and fingerprint unlock when linking devices.
The Facebook owned company wants WhatsApp Web and desktop to be just as robust as the mobile apps so people can communicate privately and securely, in whatever way is best for them.
In order to link WhatsApp Web or Desktop to your WhatsApp account you will now be asked to use your face or fingerprint unlock on your phone, before scanning a QR code from the phone to link your device.
This builds on WhatsApp existing security measures today, which pops up a notice in your phone whenever a Web/Desktop login occurs, and the ability to unlink devices from your phone at any time.
The face and fingerprint authentication takes place on your device in a privacy preserving manner – by design, WhatsApp does not see your face or fingerprint data.

|Adverts / You Can Now Go Live On Instagram For Up To 4 Hours by Yinksy09(m): 7:28am On Oct 28, 2020|
Instagram has announced that it has extended time limits on live streams to 4 hours. The company announced three updates that will make live streaming experience on the app easy with additional support of archiving live streams.
According to a blog post by business insider, Live-streaming on Instagram has seen a 70% increase in use in the US during the coronavirus quarantine in March. Social distancing led many content creators to find alternative ways to interact and communicate with their users online. Instagram live became a virtual house for people to party, celebrities hosted live shows, DJ hosted live party, artists played their music, fitness trainer hosted virtual fitness classes, live classes to train workers, and more
Instagram live stream length for all users globally which was 1 hour limited the use of the feature. Most live streams covered virtual events like fitness, yoga, training, meet up, classes among others. And required more time to showcase their content. Creators using Instagram live wanted to extend their sessions beyond the one hour time limit without any interruption.
The new live time limit is available to all users worldwide from today with the condition that their account have no history of IP or policy violations.
Instagram also announced another feature to be available later. Creators can archive their live streams for up to 30 days before they delete. Before now the only way to save live streams was to publish it on IGTV immediately after the live. Creators can always save their live videos and share to other platforms.
