What is Auto-Start Management
Auto-Start management simply is a system that allows you to control which app starts up with your phone when you reboot it or when you power it up for the first time. The auto-start management is designed to help save both battery and data by allowing only commonly used apps to run seamlessly while rarely used apps are restricted from working in the background until you open them.
Why You Need Auto-Start Management?
The Auto-Start Management is designed for the following reasons:
• To help cut down battery usage on users’ device by restricting rarely used from running in the background
• To help users save data used by some apps in the background
• To increase the speed and efficiency of the device by limiting unnecessary RAM usage
P.S: Auto-start Management can delay notifications on restricted apps so you won’t get notifications from such apps until you open them
This is a system designed on Phone master to Intelligently select your commonly used apps and make them automatically allowed to auto-start on your device. This means that your phone recognizes your most commonly used apps and then automatically categorizes them to Auto Start whenever you power on/reboot your device.
However, whenever you install a new app (and you want it to auto-start), you would need to manually enable the new app in the auto-start setting. This is quite simple. Just go to the Auto-Start menu and stroll to the new app and enable it.

Mobile phone photography/cinematography is one aspect that is quite interesting. Users of various devices want to capture events and activities in various modes as they happen without losing any detail. Some like the events in real-time, while some like it in slow motion. There is one of the reasons when these options are present in the camera features.
One of such amazing features present on the HiOS 7 camera is the Slow Motion feature. This feature allows you to records up to 960 frames of slow-motion photography. You can actually select which frame per sec you want in the Slow Motion settings (960 FPS, 240 FPS, and 120 FPS) and enjoy amazing slow-motion capability. This is the first time an HiOS powered device is coming with a slow-motion feature.
Recording in slo-mo can actually be cool when you want to make emphasize a particular image and you want your viewers to pay attention. It lets you see the details in a more vivid way so you don’t miss anything.
How to Activate the Slow Motion feature
Activating the feature is so simple, it can be located in almost any mode once the camera is turned on.
Step 1: Open the Camera
Step 2: Swipe up to reveal a hidden menu
Step 3: Click on Slow-Motion

in the previous episode I talked about general editing tools and I hope you guys had enough practice with it. Today I'm going to be talking about the quick editing tools.
Quick Editing Tools
Profiles are used for quickly adding edits that adjust the visual style. They include premade features like monochrome or black and white. This is a great way to create a beginning look for your image. To adjust the profile by moving the slider to increase or decrease the strength.
Lightroom Mobile Tutorial Profiles
Tap on the auto button to create auto edits, then the settings will change to improve the image. You can tell which settings are altered because there is a tiny dot below the menu options that have been changed. Tap on the changed settings to adjust the auto-corrected options. First set the auto option then edit the settings from there.
Copying Edits to New Photos
In this Lightroom Mobile tutorial, you can apply those old edits to a new image by uploading a new image and tapping on the “previous” button in the menu option. Then you can choose to add some or all of the adjustments. The “All” option includes the image adjustments and the crop. The other option is to add just the adjustments and not the crop. Try this by tapping on the “add adjustments” options.
To have even more control over copying edits in Lightroom Mobile you can choose which settings you would like to copy to a photo by tapping on the three-dot menu in the top right corner. Next, tap on copy settings to choose the specific changes that you would like to keep.Read all >>
Hi Tecno Lovers!
As we’re always on the lookout for new features big and small in Google services, and this one qualifies as small. But that doesn’t make it any less useful. Google Contacts appears to be rolling out a new feature that will let users change their Google Account profile picture.
The feature is straight forward and will allow Google Contacts users to tap on their photo and then pick a new image. Simple. Changing your Google Account profile picture is what’s reflected across Google products, including Photos, Gmail, and more. This allows contacts to know who is emailing them, and it also reminds you when you’re signed into your account.
Before, you could only change your photo through your Google Account. This streamlines the process and makes it much more convenient. Google actually added the same functionality to the Google Photos apps, allowing users the ability to set up a Google Account profile picture from within the app.
We previously spotted this functionality when it was being tested in Google Contacts 3.31, but it’s now generally available in Google Contacts 3.38. Changing your profile picture might not be something you do everyday, but we’re not complaining that Google has made it easier to do. And it’s always good practice to have a more current profile picture, especially if you’re sending out a lot of business emails.
When we first spotted this new feature, we also spotted strings of code that suggested Google Contacts for Android was testing a new trash feature. The feature was previously launched on Google Contacts for the web back in July of 2020, and it works similarly to the trash feature in Google Photos.
Once you delete a contact, they’ll be put in the trash instead of disappearing permanently. You can then choose to restore the contact or just leave them there.
The new feature to let you change your Google Account picture should be available now in the newest Google Contacts app for Android.Read all >>
The advancement in the digital representation of things around us and humans in image form has in recent times taken a whole new scope. One can easily say, there is an original duplication of oneself or things using this amazing technology that has grown beyond black and white to almost reality.
Not to review much of this renovation, the attachment of the camera on the smartphone is one that has grown, becoming very accessible and simple to use among millions of people around the world -from capturing amazing views to taking beautiful memories.
As an entity, the TECNO Camon 16 Premier running on the latest HiOS 7.0 operating system uses different powerful tools and features to give quality results and a clear shot of ambiance. What makes Camon 16 Premier camera astounding is the level of technological camera features HiOS introduced on it.
These features include The AI Beauty, Super Night Mode, Full-Screen Mode, and Bokeh effect; to mention just a few.
The AI Cam and Beauty
AI has blurred the boundaries between image capture, image enhancement, and image manipulation. It is used in photo-capture, to meld, enhance and 'augment' reality, to make more intelligent object selections, to match processing parameters to the subject, and to help you find the images automatically based on what's in your photos rather than manual keywords and descriptions.
It is already looking at what you photograph and making its own decisions about how to handle it. For example, the camera can identify street view, plant, and other things and automatically adjust itself to the best possible setting for such capture.
Full Screen Mode
Photography does not have to be limited to the 4:3 ratio or 1:1 anymore. On Camon 16 camera, you can take a full-screen image capture that can be used as wallpaper without cropping or stretching the image with HiOS full-screen mode
The full-screen mode can be very useful for portrait/full snapshot while standing, or landscape of a large group of persons, or wide-angle shots.
Super Night Mode
Night pictures ordinary, demand very bright lighting in order to make visible -the faces or detail of the shot. With the HiOS Super night mode feature on Camon 16 Camera, you do not need this physical light stand to take a better clear picture even in the thick darkness.
The lights are fully embedded and once you take a shot, allow the feature to apply its magic and will present you with a great quality shot that will look like a studio setup.
The Bokeh Effect is also another improvement in AI Technology that HiOS also featured on Camon 16 Camera which helps blur out none-focus images in a shot background.Unlike in times past, where one need to ask people to move aside because you want to take a shot. Or have to remove people from an image because they are not supposed to be in the shot.
The Bokeh effect acts as a blur that focuses only on the person you want while blurring the other parts. With this feature, you can stand in the midst of the crowd, even in the market, and have your face capture in real focus.

Survey and feedbacks have shown that users take up to five pictures with the same or similar posture before making a choice on which one is best for keeps or to post. And most times, the remaining four will not be trashed.
Users tend to take too many pictures at a time just to end up liking only few. These few, left in the phone will continue to occupy the phone space, and make the gallery untidy. Thus, finding a particular picture will require so many scroll and attention.
On the other hand, users find it frustrating, unease and time wasting to visit the gallery and delete these pictures occupying the phone space one after the other. It takes energy and time.
Having Duplicate images, dark, burry and most especially, so many unnecessary pictures friends send to WhatsApp chat and group that get downloaded to the gallery without the user’s consent are more devastating and storage consuming than all.
At the same time, pictures represent memories. Those happy moment of a user’s life. These could be; a birthday shot, wedding shots, travel photos, beautiful moments that should be cherish for a long time, users want them framed or mixed together, placed side by side digitally.In the past, users will have to download different apps to put their pictures together, add some beautiful frames and at the end, get their picture quality reduced.
With all these in consideration, you must be asking in your mind, How can this be solve with just few taps? Is there no way to save the time and stress deleting duplicate, blurry, dark, and annoying WhatsApp images? How can I retain my picture qualities but low image size to preserve memory space, or must I always install apps before making a photo collage? Sighs…
The Simple answer is NOT ANYMORE!
On AI Gallery, User can easily delete duplicate images without looking for them, Compress images without losing quality and saving storage space. Create photo collage without installing any app. The Clean feature automatically scan through the whole gallery and pick up the following images:Similar images, blur images, Dark images and WhatsApp images.
You can decide which one to keep and have the rest deleted or delete all at the same time. Same way with the image compressor, it automatically displays large size pictures and you can simply tap and have it Compress to a low size without losing any quality.
The collage maker simply allows you to select the number of photos you want to mix together and you have the choice to give it any design, frame, texture, text, filter and so on.
To access all these amazing tools,Open the AI Gallery App, swipe three times to the left or touch the Tools menu at the button and you will see the clean, compress and collage option there.

Microsoft has announced that it is reversing its decision and will not change Xbox Live Gold pricing. Furthermore, free-to-play games will no longer require an Xbox Live Gold membership to play on Xbox consoles.
As detailed in an Xbox Wire post, this decision comes after an earlier announcement that it would be raising the prices of Xbox Live Gold, which would mean that $60 would have gotten you only six months instead of 12.
Microsoft's full statement is as follows;
"We messed up today and you were right to let us know. Connecting and playing with friends is a vital part of gaming and we failed to meet the expectations of players who count on it every day. As a result, we have decided not to change Xbox Live Gold pricing.
"We’re turning this moment into an opportunity to bring Xbox Live more in line with how we see the player at the center of their experience. Free-to-play games will truly be free and you will no longer need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play those games on Xbox. We are working hard to deliver this change as soon as possible in the coming months.
"If you are an Xbox Live Gold member already, you stay at your current price for renewal. New and existing members can continue to enjoy Xbox Live Gold for the same prices they pay today. In the US, $9.99 for 1-month, $24.99 for 3-months, $39.99 for 6-months and $59.99 for retail 12-months."Read all >>
RainCity is an enjoyable point and click adventure game from CottonGame, the same developer behind the Isoland adventure series. In this release, it will be your job to hunt down your sister while talking to several in-game characters who have all sorts of amusing stories to share. Of course, like most adventure games, you'll solve puzzles to progress the story by hunting down clues. It's a simple setup that works well, and thanks to the game's excellent art and story, this is definitely a game to check out if you enjoy similar titles.
The original Dadish has found its way to many of my roundups over the last year, and that's simply because the platformer offers a fair bit of fun. So it makes sense that the developer would want to follow up that success quickly while the iron was still hot, and so Dadish 2 is here, and it's even better than the first game. This time around, you can expect to tool around in vehicles, with all new enemies in the mix along with new bosses to take down. Heck, the game even supports physical controllers. Honestly, it doesn't get much better than this, so make sure to check this one out if you love platformers.Read all >>
This article is a follow up to "Understanding Screen Size, Resolution, and Pixel". It attempts to provide more clarity and in-depth knowledge of the different screen resolutions of smartphones in the market. Not just of the TECNO brand, but in general.
♦ HD: HD stands for High Definition. A device with an HD display has a resolution of 720p (progressive scan) with a corresponding picture element (Pixel) of 1280 x 720. These numbers represent the basic building blocks of a digital image or display. Digital images/displays are made up of small squares, just like a tile mosaic on a wall. Though a digital photograph looks smooth and continuous, just like a regular photograph, it is actually composed of millions of tiny squares. This tiny squares refer to Pixels.
The resolution of an image or display tells you of the total number (width by height/horizontal by vertical) of pixels present. So, a 1280x 720 display contains 921600 pixels (1280 multiplied by 720).
♦ FHD:: This stands for Full High Definition. A device with an FHD display has a resolution of 1080p (progressive scan) with a corresponding picture element (Pixel) of 1920 x 1080. This means an FHD display contains 2073600 pixels (1920 multiplied by 1080).
♦ QHD:This stands for Quad High Definition. A QHD device has a resolution of 1440p (progressive scan) with a corresponding picture element (Pixel)of 2560 x 1440. This means a QHD display contains 3686400 pixels (2560 multiplied by 1440).
The Q in QHD which stands for Quad (4) comes from dividing 3686400 by 921600 which is equal 4. So QHD is 4 times the amount of pixels contained in an HD display.
♦ qHD: Notice the difference between this (qHD) and the previous (QHD). You may say both are the same for having same letters but they are not. QHD is different from qHD. The later (qHD) is of 540p (progressive scan) with a low resolution of 960 x 540. This means a device with a qHD contains 518400 pixels (960 multiplied by 540).
♦ 4K: Just as QHD is 4 times the pixels in an HD display, 4K is 4 times the pixels in an FHD display. A device with a 4K display has a resolution of 2160p (progressive scan) with a corresponding picture element (Pixels) of 3840 x 2160. This means a 4K display contains 8294400 pixels (3840 multiplied by 2160).
If you divide the amount of pixels (8294400) contained in a 4K display by that contained in an FHD display (2073600), you get the number 4.
8294400 ÷ 2073600 = 4, hence 4K.
The Camon 16 Premier doesn’t have this resolution, but it can shoot videos in 4K. What this means is that it can shoot videos at 4K resolution.
Though there are other resolutions of smartphones out there, these are the ones I feel are most relevant to this article.
See comparison photo below for different resolutions.
Here’s something I’m sure you’ve missed or didn’t think of after reading to this point.
TECNO devices sort of disagrees with these resolutions I made mentioned of despite falling within its categories. Take, for example, the CAMON 15, which has a resolution of 1600 x 720. This numerical figure is close to that of an HD display (1280 x 720). So what’s the explanation for this?
The CAMON 15 has more pixels (1600) in the horizontal region than the normal HD (1280), with the same amount of pixels (720) on the vertical region with that of the normal HD (720).

AOSP (Android Open Source Project) code holds the following features of the upcoming Android 12.
The new feature is internally called restricted networking mode. Interestingly, in a post describing the innovation, enthusiasts expressed frustration that the feature did not add the hotly anticipated customizable system-level firewall.
However, this mode may well be useful. If you activate it in the settings, then only those applications that have received special permission CONNECTIVITY_USE_RESTRICTED_NETWORKS will be able to connect to the network. Such permission will only be issued to specific system applications and/or installed by the manufacturer. Thus, in restricted network mode, any applications installed by the user cannot access the Internet.
Usefulness of Android 12
With the popularity of the Google Play Store, it will be quite easy for Android users to update apps. Because updating apps via the Play Store is technically a routine for some users, it feels like updating via the Play Store is even easier than the OTA updates. Google wants to give users an easier option for Android updates. Google launched “Project Mainline” to improve the way Android updates. In Android 12, the operating system update may be easier.
If Google wants to change the way that Android 12 (and future versions) compiles code, it can be adjusted at any time instead of relying on traditional operating system updates. Users don’t have to wait weeks or months for feature improvements or security fixes.Read all >>

We are living in a world where so many talents, knowledge, and prowess are displayed on daily basis. A world where desperate people can take desperate measures to curb desperate needs. These needs are in their multitude, from ways to live, to grow, to possess, and to achieve. We cannot in the vastness of this daily hustle do without our well-being. Our health.
Accordingly, knowledge on the other side allows people to identify an unhealthy state and manufacture vaccines and drugs to cure these problems. You will agree with us that, there are more than 100 different drugs available for just one type of sickness.
Among these drugs, how can we tell which one is original? Which one is authentic?
How can we identify the good ones from the bad ones?
No need to worry yourself trying to get these answers because at HiOS, we are not just designing products for digital consumption, but we are placing the people (our fans) well-being as a priority. This is why, on HiOS 7.0, we introduced the feature called in the Smart Scanner called the Drug Checker.
THE SMART SCANNER DRUG CHECKER
While a lot of desperate people are out there trying to produce fake drugs for desperate people, we at HiOS are ensuring that our people do not fall victim. On HiOS Smart Scanner Drug Checker, you can verify the authenticity of any drug you purchase from the pharmaceutical store or the roadside drug seller.
Almost all recent and authentic products have an Anti-counterfeit scratch code on the pack. So, you’ll simply have to scratch the panel to reveal the code you will get a confirmation if the drug is original or not.
The Smart Scanner is available on HiOS 6.0 and above.
To access this Smart Scanner Drug Checker;
Go-to your Application Menu, select Smart scanner.
At the button Menu List, Click on Drug Check.
Scan your code and you get a notification if it's genuine or fake.
Have you used this feature or would love to try it? Share your experience with us.
