Hello T-fans.Quite a lot of us are familiar with tethering having to do with WiFi,and Hotspot, but only a few know that you can do same strictly via Bluetooth alone.
For those who may not know, tethering on Android allows you share your mobile device internet connection with other connected devices. Such connections can either be done over wireless connectivity involving WiFi or via physical connection (a USB cable).
These possibility has been stretched even further, allowing for such via Bluetooth. To do this on your Tecno device, first you need to ensure your mobile data is turned, and then proceed to "Settings">"Network & Internet">"Hotspot & Tethering">"Bluetooth Tethering" (toggle the switch to the right to activate).
Now here's a trick to this whole thing that I've noticed. For your device to be visible, allowing pairing with whatever device you would want to share your internet connectivity with via Bluetooth, after carrying out the steps above involving "Bluetooth Tethering", you must use the back button/return button to return to "Settings", and then proceed to>"Connected Devices">"Bluetooth" for it to be visible to the other device you would want to pair with.
Once done, all you need to do is search for your device via Bluetooth from the other you would want to pair with. For successful connectivity, you would need to grant access to the whole process by clicking on "Pair & Connect" on receiving thenotification below.

Google’s Play Store is your official Android portal forapps, games, movies and TV, books and magazines, and more. But Google Playisn’t just about content; it’s also a valuable tool for managing your variousAndroid devices, setting notifications for apps and services, enablingautomatic software updates, and personalizing your Android experience. Here are ten tips andtricks for getting more practical value out of Google Play.
1. MANAGE YOURDEVICES VIA THE WEBIn addition to accessing the on-device app store, you canreach Google Play via your Web browser. The Web interface offers an array ofoptions that aren’t available through the Android-based app store, includingthe ability to see and manage all of the Android devices associated with yourGoogle account.
To see a list of all your Android devices, visit Google Playat play.google.com. Click a content option in the vertical menu on the leftside to see a Settings icon that looks like a small gear in the top-right ofyour display. Click that icon to view a list of your registered devices. (Ifyou don’t see the Settings icon, try choosing another content option from thecontent menu.)
To change the name of a device in the list, click the Editoption, type the new name in the Nickname text field, and click Update to saveyour changes.
2. MANAGE MAILPREFERENCES AND NOTIFICATIONSThe Play Settings screen also lets you update your emailpreferences and notification settings. Open the Web-based Play settings, usingthe process described above, and then scroll down to the bottom of the screen,where you’ll see two check boxes. If you want to receive news and promotionsfrom Google Play, fill in the first box. If you want to receive emailnotifications from developers seeking feedback on the apps you use, check thesecond box.
3. REVIEW ORDERS,REPORT PROBLEMS, AND REQUEST REFUNDSTo see a handy list of all of your paid transactions onGoogle Play, first click the Play Settings icon—but this time, instead ofchoosing the Settings option, click My Orders.
The orders list provides details about the specific contentyou’ve purchased or downloaded, including the item’s full name, price,transaction date, content type, and status (complete, cancelled, shipped, orwhatever). To filter your purchases by content type, use the All Orders menu inthe top left corner, above the list of purchases.
To report a problem with an app, product or service, or torequest a refund, find the specific purchase in the orders list and hover yourpointer over that name in the list. A set of three vertical dots will appear tothe right of the name. Click the dots and choose the Report a Problem option. Apopup box with a drop-down menu and a set of options specific to the contenttype will appear. Choose the appropriate option from the menu, and you’ll see alist of possible resolutions. If the suggestions don’t help, fill in the textfield with appropriate details and submit your request. You should receive sometype of email receipt after submitting a request.
4. PASSWORD-PROTECTYOUR ORDERSIt’s a good idea to password-protect your Google Playaccount, to avoid unwanted or accidental purchases—especially if multiplepeople (including children) frequently use your device or devices.
Google Play in-app settingsGoogle Play's in-app settings.To enable Play password protection, open the Google Play appon your Android device, tap the three vertical dots in the top right corner ofyour display, and choose Settings. In the User Controls section, you’ll see abox next to Password. Enter a password there, and then confirm it to enable thesetting.
After turning on password protection, you’ll be prompted foryour password whenever you make a Play purchase. You can make additionalpurchases without reentering your password for up to 30 minutes after your mostrecent purchase.
Some devices enable password protection by default. If the A password box is checked, your account is already protected.
5. AUTOMATICALLYUPDATE YOUR GOOGLE PLAY APPSGoogle Play’s 'Auto-update apps' setting lets youautomatically update your apps and games so you don’t have to update themmanually. Activating this option will reduce the number of (potentiallyannoying) update notifications you receive, too.
To enable automatic app updates, click the Menu icon (thethree vertical dots) in the top right corner of your Google Play Android appand choose Settings. Under the General section, you’ll see an option forAuto-update apps. Tap that option and confirm it in the popup box. You may still occasionally receive notifications to approveapp updates if permissions change, but most of your apps will automaticallyupdate after you enable this setting.

Qualcomm wants to reclaim the title of fast charging king with the introduction of Quick Charge 5. It’s a massive jump up from QC4, it supports speeds of 100 Watts and more while keeping the battery 10°C cooler and it’s 70% more efficient to boot.
According to Qualcomm tests, a 4,500 mAh battery can be charged from 0% to 50% in just 5 minutes. A full charge of such a battery will take 15 minutes. This is in the case of a dual charging solution, which splits the battery into two 2,250 mAh cells connected in series to increase their voltage. Triple charge is also supported.
QC5 power bricks are required to support output voltages between 3.3 and 20 Volts at minimum, with 3.3 or 5 Amps of current or (for the beefier units) 5+ Amps.
Quick Charge 5 is built on top of USB Power Delivery PPS, but it extends it with backwards compatibility with QC2 and later. It can also work with standard USB PD devices as well as Apple gadgets (iPhone 7 and newer).
Qualcomm claims its system is safer than plain Power Delivery too. It features 8 levels of voltage protection, 3 levels of current protection, 3 levels of thermal protection and 3 timer protections, plus overvoltage protection at 25 V.
Also, the charge controller chips inside the phone won’t blindly trust the charger when it announces its capabilities using the PD protocol. It will measure its characteristics to determine the actual maximum current it can supply while keeping an eye on thermals.
Qualcomm expects to see Quick Charge 5 in smartphones coming in the third quarter of this year. It unveiled two charge controller chips that manufacturers can use – SMB1396 and MSB1398. They support both wired and wireless input and can be used with 1 cell and 2 cell batteries, depending on the maker’s designs for the phone (1 cell designs will be limited to 45 W charging, which is still pretty quick).
Snapdragon 865 and 865+ already support QC5, though that doesn’t mean that current phones will be able to use it (as the chipset needs to be paired with the new SMB chips).Read all >>

This post was last edited by Rehan Sheikh at 2020-7-28 13:06 Hello T-Fans, The Rainy Season has started. In such a situation, most people use umbrellas or raincoats to avoid getting wet. But many times it happens that people forget to carry umbrella or raincoat in haste and get wet. Along with this, the smartphone also gets wet. If your smartphone is soaked in the rain in this way, then there is no need to worry. Today we are going to give you such tips, through which you will be able to fix your soaked phone. Let's know ...] Turn off the smartphone after falling into the water. If your phone is wet in the rain and is turning on, then first turn it off. Do not try to turn on again and again. With this, there will be no risk of short circuit in the phone. The smartphone will not be spoiled either. Dry the smartphone with a hair dryer . After getting the phone wet, remove its battery, memory card and SIM card comfortably. If the phone has a non-removable battery, then there will be a risk of short circuit. Now dry the phone under the fan or with a hair dryer. Wipe the water seen in the phone with a clean cloth or paper napkin.Keep the smartphone in rice. If you do not have a hair dryer, then put the phone in dry rice, but make sure that the rice does not run in the headphone jack. Leave the phone to dry for at least 24 hours. Turn on the smartphone once it dries.
Turn it on again after the smartphone dries completely. If the phone does not turn on, then put it in charging and if there is a problem after that, then go to a mobile repair shop. Or go to the service center and get the phone repaired.Read all >>
YouTube on Friday said consumption of videos – recommended by the platform – containing misinformation is significantly below one per cent, and it is working on strengthening its systems to further reduce such instances to ensure that creators and users are protected.
YouTube Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan said the company has been actively working on removing misinformation, especially amid COVID-19 pandemic and has seen consumption of videos from “authoritative sources” grow 110 per cent in India during January-March 2020.
“…striking that balance between an open platform and our community guidelines, designed to protect everybody, is a point of conversation for us every day…Over the past years, we’ve been working hard to invest in the policies, resources and products needed to protect the YouTube community,” he said.
Mohan added that its work has focused on four pillars – removing violative content, raising up authoritative content, reducing the spread of borderline content and rewarding trusted creators – the 4Rs of responsibility.
“…consumption of borderline content or harmful misinformation videos that comes from our recommendations is significantly below one per cent and we’re constantly working to reduce this even further,” he said.
Mohan said YouTube updated its Hate and Harassment Policies last year to quickly remove any content that violates its policies.
“We’re also making sure that we limit the spread of Coronavirus related misinformation on our site. These efforts are built upon our work to reduce recommendations of borderline content (content that comes close to, but doesn’t cross the line of violating our Community Guidelines,” he said.
The company has a 24-hour, “follow the sun” coverage, and these teams sit across time zones, cover different languages and have different areas of expertise.
“…authoritative source content consumption on our platform, ie videos that are coming from authoritative sources, has grown 110 per cent in India during the first three months of 2020, mainly often times because users are coming to YouTube, looking for the most relevant information that they can find about about the crisis,” he said.
Last year, YouTube had launched Fact Check information panels in India, the first country where such a feature was launched. These ‘information panels’ flag misinformation and offer correct insights with the fact checks being done by fact checking organisations.
Raising authoritative information and giving the proper context to users helps reduce and remove content that is violative of YouTube’s policies, Mohan said.
Since launch, there have been over 300 billion impressions on its information panels globally.
“We also updated our policies to remove egregious medical misinformation about COVID. We’re consulting with global and local health authorities as we develop these policies and we’ve been updating them on an ongoing basis to stay current with the science -10 updates in the past two months alone,” he said.
These policies prohibit things like saying the virus is a hoax or promoting medically unsubstantiated cures in place of seeking treatment and YouTube has removed thousands of videos under these policies.

Popular hand-drawn platforming title Cuphead has been spotted on the PlayStation Store by many
people situated in different regions. The listing hints that we might be seeing a PlayStation 4 release for the game sometime soon. Although the game has appeared on the PS Store, users are unable to click on it to find out further details.
Cuphead may be coming to PS4, it's appearing on international PSN stores right now but game listing doesn't load yet pic.twitter.com/ME7oRLkSEM

Studio MDHR's bright and quirky 2D game made its debut in late 2017 and was limited to the Xbox One and PC platforms. Cuphead was quite popular, selling one million copies in its first two weeks after launch. To commemorate the success of the platforming title, Microsoft created a custom Cuphead -themed Xbox One S which was given away in a sweepstake.
Following the game's rise in popularity, Cuphead has made its way to the Nintendo Switch and even
Tesla cars. Now it seems that we will be seeing a PS4 launch, despite an earlier statement from the game's developer saying that a PlayStation 4 port would not happen and Cuphead would maintain its Xbox One and PC exclusivity.
For now, it seems that nothing will be confirmed until an official announcement from Studio MDHR is made.Read all >>
Almost every one of us, when decides to buy a new smartphone, gets confused about what factors to consider and what to overlook. Nowadays, in the market, when you step in to buy a smartphone, you will find smartphones ranging from Rs 5000 to 100K or even more than that. In today’s time, smartphones are an integral part of our lives. With every new phone which we buy, we expect more features in it. However, with the wide variety of smartphones available in the market, it is quite challenging to decide which one to choose. Here, in this article, we will discuss some essential things that any user needs to consider before buying a new smartphone.
Before proceeding to buy a smartphone or checking out other features first, you need to think about what kind of phone do you need. The point is that if you are going to use your smartphone for sending WhatsApp messages, browsing the internet, or publishing posts on social media only, then you should not need to spend much amount. However, if you are a gamer who wants a fluid and smooth gaming experience, a good quality camera, then it is better to overlook the price and look for the features. So, it is all up to you how you are going to use your device and accordingly choose a smartphone.
You cannot have your phone connected to the charger or power bank throughout the day. So, it would help if you looked at the battery life of the phone. It is one of the most important things that you must consider while buying a smartphone. The battery usage differs for every user as it depends on the ways any user uses the smartphone. If you use your phone a lot by playing graphic-intensive games, streaming videos and more then you need to go for a smartphone with at least 4000mAh battery or above. However, if you are an average or light user, a handset with 3500mAh or even 3000mAh battery would be kind enough to run for a full day.
Phones have two kinds of memory – RAM and ROM. RAM determines the speed of smartphone and the number of apps the smartphone can keep it running in the background and ROM is used for storing system as well as media files. The latter is also referred to as internal storage where all your apps, photos, videos, files, etc. are stored. So, it becomes essential to check the RAM and internal storage of the smartphone which you are going to buy. Also, keep in mind that go for larger storage (6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB Storage) if you are a heavy user. Otherwise, 3/4 GB RAM and 32/64 GB ROM is enough for you. However, if you need, you can also use cloud storage later to get some additional cloud storage to save your heavy media files.
Nowadays, camera is one of the most important parts of any phone. Before buying any smartphone, also look at its camera features like – number of Cameras, Aperture Size, number of megapixels, hybrid autofocus, optical stabilization, manual modes, special effects, unique selfie feature, and many more. Remember that the higher number of megapixel does not mean it will snap a good picture. So, also look at the other camera features like ISO, aperture and others. If you are in a store, you can try the camera then and there only by yourself and be the judge.
Processors and Hardware
The processor is the brain of any device. It manages the overall performance of the device. For processors, there are many jargons like Dual-Core, Quad-Core, Octa-Core, Snapdragon, Mediatek, and many more. Before buying a new smartphone, look at the processing speed that in mentioned in terms of GHz (GigaHertz). Higher the value faster will be the speed and hence the processor.
If you are a gamer, you should go for a smartphone that is equipped with a display of at least 6.0 inches and also look for the new in trend high refresh rate displays. However, if you want to use the smartphone mainly for WhatsApp or social media, a smaller screen will work. Mainly, there are 2 types of screens- LCD and AMOLED. The difference lies between them in the projection of light. Without going into too much depth, you can go for Full-HD, FullHD+, or QHD resolution, preferably a Full HD, or FullHD+ display if you are into watching Full HD 1080p videos on youtube or Netflix.
You can choose the OS among Android or iOS. However, if you have decided to go for Android, you will find many versions. Before buying a new smartphone, check the Android version of that device. Android 9 Pie and Android 10 are the latest versions, and you should look for smartphones powered by these two Android versions only as they would continue the software support for next 2 years for sure and you can stay updated during this period.
Last but not least, the most critical factor that you need to consider is the price of the smartphone. Look at your budget and the price of the smartphone, then compare the difference. Think, is it worth to use you all salary or pocket money for buying a smartphone? Remember, the price keeps on getting high along with the features and functionalities.
So, these are some important things which you need to consider before buying a new smartphone. Think upon these factors, go into details and make a choice accordingly. I
hope that you have found this article helpful.Read all >>
