Lowi enters the price fight; applying a significant price cut to all its rates

 

The return to the cole of the operators promised to be tremendously interesting, for the benefit of the users. MsM was the first to announce improvements in its offer , but Amena raised the temperature when it announced that its free extra gigs for summer would stay forever . Fiesta to which Tuenti has also joined, with important improvements in its mobile tariffs and Yoigo with its renewed Combinado Azul .

And obviously, since Vodafone could not stay watching as their rivals improved their rates, with the threat of losing customers that it supposes. The counterattack of the British operator comes through Lowi, which has decided to improve all its tariffs, with important price cuts in mobile and convergent tariffs , placing its offer as one of the best on the market.

The movement of Lowi, more than expected after the Amena, will not consist of increasing the gigas of their rates, which will continue to have the eight-gigs as the top. The second Vodafone brand has chosen to opt for the price reduction , which in some cases reaches up to nine euros.

 

Do not panic, WhatsApp is inoperative

 

It seems that after more than half an hour without connection to the server, WhatsApp begins to recover normal. Let’s hope that finally the connection stabilizes in the whole planet and we do not have cuts again is a long time.
It costs us to value what we have until we lose it. Surely many users think that right now that the mobile messaging application par excellence, WhatsApp, is inoperative.

With more than 1 billion daily users connected to it, it is normal for servers to have hiccups from time to time, but the last drop was not too long ago and today it repeats itself.

At the moment, WhatsApp does not show any messages that indicate that its system is inoperative beyond which the messages that we send will stay permanently with the clock that indicates that they are trying to deliver to its recipients. The app takes several minutes and for now there are no signs of recovery. Just take a look at a Twitter search to see that the crash is occurring in quite a few parts of the planet.

We will be waiting for the service to come back to life, because at the moment there are hundreds of millions of people who could be potentially incommunicado through an application that in many regions is one of the only resources to reduce contact. Let us hope that this fall will not last too long and we will end up in World War III.

 

This is what we ask Apple for the new iPhone 8 that we will meet on September 12

 

Summer ends and with its withdrawal, the last (and most expected) presentations of the year arrive. Just a week ago we met the new flagship of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and now we are about to know the novelties of other manufacturers like Sony, which will be presented at the next edition of the IFA in Berlin.

But in addition, we still have to meet another of the flagships of the market, the new iPhone that will take over the current iPhone 7 to crown itself as a banner company Cupertino and we already know that its official presentation will take place the next 12 of September . Apple’s new phone has already leaked many things , but there are also many others that we would like to tell us about it the day of its presentation.

Screen without frames

This is one of the characteristics of the most talked about, and is that it seems that Apple could add back to a trend of the market as it did in its day with the dual camera. This elimination of frames would almost inevitably remove the physical home button from the front, something that does not affect the way we could use the phone, but it would match the iPhone with its current main rivals .

 

What if the iPhone 8 was the first mobile with 512GB of history?

 

If you are a user of a 16GB iPhone you have probably stumbled on more than one occasion with the dreaded notification that “storage of the device almost full” and you had to proceed to erase photos and videos to solve it.

Well, it seems that the memory of the iPhone (especially in the case of the aforementioned) has a new “enemy” on the prowl, and is that according to report from the consultancy Sensor Tower, the size of applications for iPhone (specifically the most downloaded in the United States) has multiplied its size exorbitantly in the last four years.

Facebook and Snapchat, Titanic applications

We already knew that Facebook is among the heaviest applications and the most resources of the phone consume, but the figures provided by Sensor Tower frighten. And is that the social network of Zuckerberg in mobile version has gone from occupying 32 MB of internal storage in May 2013 to multiply its size by twelve , currently reaching 388 MB.

 

How to divert calls from one mobile to another on iOS and Android

 

Today we have multiple routes of contact and although they seem almost extinct after the insertion of instant messaging applications, calls are still one of the main communication channels . The call forwarding is one of those options that you think you will never use until the day comes when we have to implement? , we do not know where to start.

Either because we go on vacation and do not want to be bothered, or because we have two numbers and our phone is not Dual SIM, let’s see how we can divert calls from one mobile to another both on Apple phones and those with Android as OS.

How to divert calls on Android

In both operating systems we will manage this option from the settings of the phone itself. In the case of Android phones we will open the application of the phone (the one of the calls) and we will click on the icon of the three points that we will find by default in the upper right corner (in the majority of devices) to access the adjustments of calls.

Within these settings we will find the option of “Call Forwarding” , in which we also have four different diversion options:

  • Always divert
  • Divert when busy
  • Divert when not responding
  • Divert when unavailable

Once we have decided which option most suits our needs, all we have to do is enter the phone number to which we want our calls to be diverted. Of course, this action can be cleared at the moment when we want to stop divert the calls just by following the same steps.

 

Nokia 8, first impressions: power and defenses Zeiss brand under a family wrap

 

Although the expected return of Nokia came earlier this year, it was not until last August 16 when Nokia finally announced its first high-end mobile , the missing piece to complete its discreet but interesting catalog. We talk, of course, of the Nokia 8 .

The Nokia 8 comes with standard features such as the 2K display, the Snapdragon 835 processor or its dual camera, three key pillars to measure yourself with the most competitive handsets . Taking advantage of the framework of the fair IFA of Berlin, HMD has taken to walk its new flagship and we have had occasion to test it during several hours. These are our first impressions of Nokia 8.

‘Classic’ design with great attention to detail

As in many other consumer sectors, fashions rule, and today the fashion in design within the world of mobile phones is to adjust the screen to the edge. At the moment Nokia has not entered this race and the Nokia 8 has quite prominent upper and lower frames , but can not be blamed for having excessive size or weight, in fact feels comfortable and is not complicated to handle with one hand.

 

This is the catalog of Wiko smartphones in 2017 after the news presented in IFA

 

Parallel to the avalanche of Chinese brands that have entered strongly in the field of smartphones that bet for a good balance between price and specifications , have also been born a multitude of European brands with referents like the Spanish bq or the French Wiko that just presented its new phone without frames and screen with elongated format .

To put into perspective how Wiko organizes its different families of phones within the catalog and easily know the differences between models of the same range, we have compiled the 11 most striking proposals in the catalog of Wiko smartphones highlighting how attractive each model in this 2017 along with all specifications, price and analysis on video.

The most powerful mobiles of Wiko

For its most powerful mid-range, Wiko offers three phones with resolution screen FHD and eight-core processor where Wiko Wim is the largest screen model with its 5.5 inches and the only dual camera while with 5-inch we found the metallic Wiko U feel Prime and Wiko Wim Lite with polycarbonate body.

The remaining three models reduce the screen resolution to HD, highlighting the Wiko View with screen 18: 9 with little frames, Wiko UPress able to take photos up to 52 megapixels and similar Wiko Lite UPress more restrained screen .

 

What does it mean that the LG V30 has an f / 1.6 aperture on its rear camera

 

Yesterday LG put the rest to try to conquer the market of high ranges. He did it during the IFA Berlin, although the correct thing would be to say that he did it before its opening, because the fair opens the doors to the public today 1 of September. Climbing to a stage at the Messe Berlin, LG deployed and boasted of everything that their LG V30 is capable of. The first really international V mobile and one of the strongest candidates to be the mobile this year .

In the presentation there was time to talk about all the strengths of the device. From its huge P-OLED screen with hardly any frames, an evolution with technology change over the LG G6 months ago, and also the incorporation of Qualcomm’s latest high-end chip. But much of the protagonism was taken by his double camera and there was a fact that did not go unnoticed: the opening of his main lens.

The biggest opening achieved in the mobile

It was not trivial to give as much hype to seemingly as insignificant data as his main lens had an aperture f / 1.6, a number marks a record right now as the first mobile lens to achieve such a wide aperture . Those closest to it, the f / 1.7 that Samsung starts to mount in its midrange, the same that already uses OnePlus or HTC. E Even Vivo and Oppo.

The aperture of a lens in optics, so it applies the same as traditional cameras to mobile phones, reflects the aperture diameter of the lens itself with respect to the focal length and is also a number inversely proportional to that aperture, because it is written in a fraction. That means that a smaller one reflects a greater aperture. Greater opening, more light.

 

Apple Pay Cash goes to Europe: send money between users through Messages

 

The world has changed, though not in the way Galadriel told it at the beginning of the Fellowship of the Ring. It has changed because technology has opened the way to multitudes of ways to interact around us that have not been explored until now, and one of them is the treatment we give money . To our savings. Mobile payments are the order of the day.

Among all the solutions for this new digital money deal we find operators, banks and of course, the manufacturers themselves. Apple Pay is the proposal of those of Cupertino in this field and Apple Pay Cash is its extended version , a tool to be able to send money between individuals that now it sets out for Europe.

Landing with iOS 11

Following the path of other applications such as Paypal’s Venmo, Apple released a few months ago its new Pay Cash, a tool to send money between individuals with the only requirement to go through their proprietary messaging solution: iMessage or Messages. Hence, any user who does not have an Apple device is automatically excluded from the use of this service.

Now the registration of the Apple Pay Cash brand in Europe has been detected , and is that the filtration comes directly from the European Patent and Trademark Office. Signal that Apple moves the threads to bring the service to the old continent just as the release of iOS 11 is getting closer and, all that is said, also the next iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 .

 

The advance in the manufacture of some components suggests that the Galaxy S9 will arrive in January

 

With the still-warm body of a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and official confirmation of the filing date of the new Apple phone, the iPhone 8 , we find a new news that involves another flagger as a flagship .

We talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9 from which now come siren songs that point to a fairly considerable advance for its filing date. The rumors, which point to the month of January as possible departure date for the new flagship, are based on the manufacture of one of the components of the device to take shape.

Galaxy S9 in January?

As we say, the basis of this latest rumor lies in the hardware elements of the future phone, specifically on the screen. And is that according to the information, Samsung could start receiving the OLED panels for their Samsung Galaxy S9 this same month of November.

We would be talking about two months before what happened with the Samsung Galaxy S8 , and according to calculations, once the screens are ready, they usually spend around two or three months until they are sent to the assembly chain, reason why which rumor marks January as the filing date for the Galaxy S9 instead of March.
