TECNO Device User Guidance #3 Speed up Our Phones!

TECNO SPOT Official | 2020-07-28129237

Q&A
Dear T-fans,We are launching a new series to answer for all of the problems you have encountered during using TECNO phones.We have collected the most frequently asked questions and we will provide tutorials for each question and update weekly.Many people may be bothered by the slow speed of a old mobile phone. Actually, the reason is complex, so that we should know more about our phones to deal with it. This time we will talk about how to make our phones work fluently. Let's get started!There are three main reasons making mobile phones jam:1. Insufficient RAM(Random access memory)This is the main reason. As mobile phone apps increase, users will often use them, so that each opened program will occupy a part of the RAM. If the mobile phone’s RAM is relatively small, there is only a small amount of RAM left, so that the mobile phone system cannot work fluently.Perhaps some users have doubts that it is normal for opened apps to stuck the phone, but sometimes when the apps are shut down, RAM is still occupied. As for this problem, actually it derives from Android's memory-recovery mechanism. Every interface in android phones is bound to an Activity, which has its own period. Every time when an activity is overwritten by another activity, it is suspended until it is destroyed and releases memory. A lot of other apps use service to process background tasks, and it's also convenient for opening apps quickly. When the user exits the apps, the service is still running in the background, occupying memory.2. Occupy too much storageWhen the mobile phone is used for a long time, there will be a large amount of storage space occupied, some of which are log files left after the apps are opened, some are downloaded cache data, and some are the data downloaded by the users, such as music, video, pictures and so on. There are also some downloads of the installation package, the apps residue data after unloading and so on. When the storage space is occupied in large quantities, it will cause the system files and application apps to load slowly. Then the loading time will become longer, bringing a feelingthat the mobile phone becomes slower. BUT, you don't have to worry. There are also some solution for that!1.Use the Phone Master of Android phonesPhone Master has two very useful functions: one is RAM cleaning, which can clean up the RAM that has not been released after exiting the apps, so that the RAM can be vacated for the system to use, providing users a smoother feeling. The other is garbage file cleaning, which can speed up the system to load file and improve the system running speed.2. Unload apps that you don't needFor Android phones, unloading apps just need to long press the icon on the screen, then drag to the top unloading area.3. If the phone jams seriously, you can backup the phone data and restore. This answer is edited by TECNO product manager Watson. Hopefully it is helpful for you~ Read all >>

For those new on Android, YouTube is a video sharing platform where users can watch, like, share, comment and uploadvideos. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available contents includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other contents such as video blogging, short original videos, educational videos, etc. The platform offers you lots of options to personalize your experience. One of which is the double-tap gesture which allows you skip or reverse a short portion of a video. By default, double-tapping once, changes the time by 10 seconds. But, you can choose to increase the timing for everytime you double-tap once. To do so, launch the youtube app>click on the profile icon at the topmost right>"settings">"general">"double tap to seek">select from availabile options (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60 seconds) whichever suits your preference.

Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop's Azure portal integration now generally available

FavourAjibade | 2020-07-270134

General
Earlier in May, Microsoft announced a few new features being made available to Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD). The enhancements were related to the management and deployment tools, an upgraded Teams experience, and more. Today, the company announced that it is making those features and improvements generally available. The two major features that the Redmond giant is bringing to users is the integration of the service with the Azure portal and improvements to Teams in the form of A/V redirect for the collaboration app in WVD. As the name suggests, the Azure portal integration makes it easier for admins to manage and deploy apps and virtual desktops to users. This also brings security improvements, as admins can create Azure AD groups and mandate two-factor authentication. Additionally, those that use the classic model for existing deployments will be soon provided with guidance on migrating to the new portal. The new portal allows for capabilities such as Azure role-based access control (RBAC) for “fine-grained access control”, user management improvements that let admins publish apps and desktops to AAD groups, and monitoring enhancements to effectively analyze logs and troubleshoot issues. The other major feature that is being made generally available today is the A/V redirect feature for Teams. This lets the system handle audio and video locally for Teams meetings, which reduces latency and improves the quality of the call. With the pandemic resulting in more people working remotely, Microsoft says that Windows Virtual Desktop is helping “customers rapidly deliver a secure Windows 10 desktop experience to their users”. The firm is also reportedly working on a “Cloud PC” operating system offering powered by Azure that is built on WVD. The improved deployment and management experience through the Azure portal, along with the enhancements to Teams – a service that is also seeing a surge in usage – make it a welcome addition for admins and companies that leverage the service.Read all >>

New Google Chrome Will Increase The Battery Life Of Laptops

lummyfinest | 2020-07-27278

General
Hi TFans, Chrome is probably the most used web browser across all platforms, but that's not because it's the ideal browser. While it has improved significantly over the years, especially in the area of ​​memory management, Chrome is still notorious for draining battery life, which Microsoft Edge (predating the Chromium version) tried to capitalize on. This disadvantage may soon become a thing of the past if the latest Chrome update becomes stable - it can save users from 30 minutes to 2 hours of battery life even with dozens of open tabs. The optimization planned by Google focuses on what is one of the quiet killers of the web browser: Javascript timers. These timers fire at intervals to check for things like page scrolling, ad analysis, logging, etc. While they may be important for the web pages you are currently browsing, timers don't make much sense for most pages that open in tabs other than the current one. Google checked how much battery is saved by setting the Javascript timer interval to turn on only once a minute. With 36 background pages open and one blank page open, battery life was extended by almost 2 hours, which means an increase of 28%. Of course, no one leaves a blank tab, and Google ran another test with YouTube video playback, no power saving or screen dimming. The battery life has increased by half an hour or 13%, which is important for notebooks. Of course, this kind of optimization will have side effects and some pages may not work as expected if the Javascript timers are set in the above way. In this regard, Apple has found a good solution for Safari - it is to apply this policy only after five minutes of inactivity in the background tabs. Google is reportedly planning to do the same. Implementing these changes will significantly improve Chrome's performance across all platforms. However, Google will provide system administrators with the option to disable this feature for at least one year after its release. This will allow them to test the feature and make sure nothing is broken or make the necessary changes to become compliant with the new policy. Read all >>

Smartphone's Common Problems And Their Solutions

Sumit Verma | 2020-07-27163

General
Hello T-Fans, Mobile phone problems can sometimes feel frustrating and solutions aren't always easy to come by. We rely on our cell phones more and more every day, so when we encounter difficulty with them and have to take them somewhere to get them fixed, it can be stressful. Fortunately, many common cell phone problems are easy to resolve if you know how. So let' begin. Your Phone Is Slow Solution: Start by closing apps that are not in use. Keep unimportant apps from running in the background. If the problem is internet speed, switch to another network. Battery Doesn't Last Longer Low battery time sometimes can be because of bad/ unauthorized charger. Solution: Make sure you are using a recommended charger. Shorten your screen timeout from DISPLAY SETTINGS. Reduce your SCREEN BRIGHTNESS. Enable BATTERY SAVING MODE whenever your phone is not in use. Screen Is Broken Or Cracked Solution: Get your screen replaced by the authorized service center of your brand. Use preventive measures such as a good case and a glass protector. Your Device Got Wet Or Fell In Water Solution: IMMEDIATELY take your device to the service center. To absorb the moisture you can use substances such as rice before taking to the service center. Do not attempt to plug or fix it yourself. Your Phone Is Overheating Solution: Leave it inactive for some time. Keep your phone in a cool place, reduce brightness and close power/memory intensive apps. Stay tuned for more... Read all >>

Rebooting to Safe Mode on Tecno Camon 15

CAMON 15 Series
This post was last edited by yusufaliu at 2020-7-26 04:36 Safe Mode on Android allows you boot your Android device to default apps/set up it comes with, out of the box. This means that when you boot your Android device into Safe Mode, all third-party apps, widgets, and any other related system modifications done by you, gets temporarily disabled prior to your exit of Safe Mode, leaving you only with default system apps/set up. It is a great tool that allows troubleshooting on Android, so as to help you figure out whether or not a third-party app/set up is responsible for the problems you may be experiencing with your smartphone. These includes overheating, system multi-reboot during use, device software crashes, excessive battery drain, lagging, etc. When you boot your device into safe mode, all third-party apps/set up are disabled, while those that come pre-installed remains (YouTube, Gmail, etc). If the issue you’re experiencing goes away while in safe mode, you can be sure that one of the third-party apps/set up is responsible for it. The drawback though is that safe mode doesn't really pinpoint you to the exact culprit but nevertheless, you can figure out which app was installed right before the issue started and then proceed to deal with it by uninstalling or whatever suits you in solving the problem. Now here's one thing people may or may not know, booting your Android device into Safe Mode is majorly dependent on manufacturer. If you Google search how to boot Android into safe mode, you will get tonnes of options, most of which I can assure you won't work on a Tecno device. Why? Because Safe Mode is manufacturer dependent. The directory to do so on other smartphone brands may or may not work on a Tecno device,and vice versa. To boot your Android device into Safe Mode on Camon 15, press and hold the power off button. Once the system gives you the slider option to either swipe up to restart, or swipe down to shutdown, longpress on the HIOS logo until it ask you to reboot into Safe Mode. Click ok when you get the prompt and wait patiently for your device to reboot into Safe Mode. If successful, you would see the writing which read "Safe Mode" at the bottom left. To turn off Safe Mode, press and hold the power off button, use the slider option to restart your device by swiping up, wait patiently for your device to restart. If successful, the "Safe Mode" writing at the bottom left previously mentioned should be gone.The process of turning on and off Safe Mode also works the same on Camon 11, and Camon 12. I cannot say for other Tecno devices as I have only tried it on this three, Camon 11, 12, and 15. Let us know if the process worked on your device in the comment box. Don't forget to leave a like. And, you can also follow me on Tspot for more. See also Managing App Permissions on Android 10. Multitasking on Camon 15: The Split Screen Feature.

You can play 'Doom' inside 'Minecraft' using a virtual PC

FavourAjibade | 2020-07-266117

General
The quest to make devices play Doom has extended to gadgets inside other games. Reddit user uDrunkMate has succeeded (via The Verge ) in playing Doom inside Minecraft thanks to a recently developed mod, VM Computers, that can run Windows 95 inside Mojang’s creative title. You need to order virtual computer parts and place an ISO into the right Minecraft subfolder, but it works. It’s even possible to play decently, although you probably wouldn’t want to to try a high difficulty level. There are some compromises apart from having to play on a screen within a screen. It’s not going to have the frame rate you’d expect, and mods for Doom itself might be impractical. You can also forget about playing Minecraft inside Minecraft in the near future. Even running Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux is “laggy,” according to uDrunkMate, let alone a game meant for reasonably modern computers. Still, this is a testament to the flexibility of Minecraft mods . It also shows just how powerful computers have become — a first-person shooter that required the full attention of a PC in 1993 now only needs a fraction of the resources.Read all >>

Google to prevent smartphones with 2GB of RAM from using full version of Android

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-07-265256

General
Google’s next major Android update is not far from an official release, with beta testing already underway. Now, a leaked copy of Google’s “Android 11 Go edition Device Configuration Guide” may have revealed an interesting detail. The leaked copy was first spotted by XDA Developers and suggested that smartphones that launch with 2GB RAM or less will have to launch as Android Go devices and won’t be able to run the traditional Android operating system. Additionally, phones with 512MB of RAM or less will no longer qualify for preloading Google’s Mobile Services (GMS). The upcoming requirements will definitely impact low-end Android devices. This also means that we may stop seeing devices with 512MB RAM in the future. Additionally, allowing devices with 1GB and 2GB of RAM to only run Android Go will improve performance across the board. The changes are expected to take place from Q4 2020 when the OS starts rolling out publicly. It is worth noting that smartphones with 2GB of RAM that has launched prior will be exempt from this requirement. They will continue to run the full version of Android even if they receive future updates.Read all >>

Focus Mode Is On, Now Easy To Achieve Your Goals

Sumit Verma | 2020-07-263169

HiOS
This post was last edited by Sumit Verma at 2020-7-26 21:19 Hello T-Fans, Do you try to balance your daily activities? all of us need time to arrange a vacation with family and friends or even spend summer nights talking about our life and the old funny situation that happened before. When it is time to stalk with books for an exam at the end of the year. This situation when it is time for an online interview you must do and you need to focus on. It can feel like there aren't enough hours in a day to get everything done. But joining social media, games, and messaging apps, your phone’s constant buzzing and bleeping threaten to pull you away from what really matters. And because so much of this planning happens on our smartphones, it's easy to be distracted by notifications and your favorite apps. We know that social media memes and funny videos take a long time instead of focusing on work, so organizing your daily activities become very important. You can cut time by Focus Mode. What is focus mode? Focus mode is a new Digital Wellbeing tool on HiOS, that helps you get things done by temporarily pausing apps so you can focus on the task at hand. You can select apps you currently find distracting (like social media or games) and if you try to open them, Focus mode will remind you that app is paused. Focus mode will also silence those apps’ notifications until you’re ready to switch out of the mode. This means you can use your phone without interruptions from apps you don't need right away. Focus Mode has an option to automatically turn on and off for the days and times that you choose (e.g. from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays). This is especially handy for setting daily schedules; you can minimize distractions during the hours you’re at work, school or home. You can also take a break, which lets you step out of Focus mode to use certain apps and jump back in when you’re ready. And if you’ve completed your tasks early, you can simply turn off Focus mode and it’ll resume as scheduled the next day. What if I get lost the notifications when focus mode is active? I know that question is inside your head now. Don’t worry about losing your notifications either, as previous notifications will be restored once you turn off the mode, in addition to any notifications that arrived while Focus Mode was active. It's a great way to eliminate distractions, which I can attest to, I usually get constant notifications from Twitter, and while I got into the habit of enabling Do Not Disturb throughout the day to prevent getting distracted, Focus mode offers a more elegant solution. I just select the apps that I find distracting, and I no longer receive notifications from them while I'm working when duration mode is active. How to access Focus Mode? 1. Open Settings 2. Scroll down to the Digital Wellbeing section 3. Tap Digital Wellbeing & parental controls. 4. Select Focus mode. 5. Choose the apps that you want to pause. 6. Hit Turn on now to enable Focus mode. Focus mode is available on All TECNO devices that currently have Digital Wellbeing and parental controls settings, including new phones launching with Android 9 and Android 10. Read all >>

Doritos may have spoiled the next 'Call of Duty: Black Ops' game

FavourAjibade | 2020-07-271174

General
You might not have to wait for Activision to reveal the name of the next Call of Duty game — apparently, a snack food purveyor is one step ahead. TheGaming Revolution has shared (via Call of Duty News and Windows Central ) pictures of what’s said to be a Doritos promo for the still-unannounced Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War . The return to the original Black Ops era had been rumored for a while, but this seemingly confirms the plans. The promo (which offers a chance to win double experience points for a year) appears to start October 5th, although that doesn’t necessarily guarantee the game will be available at the same time. A similar promo for Modern Warfare started October 1st last year ahead of the game’s October 25th release, but it also didn’t arrive during a pandemic that could affect development. These are the two Doritos Double XP promotional images that I was DM'd earlier from an anonymous source for Call of Duty 2020 Black Ops Cold War. I was too worried about copyright issues to post them earlier but since CharlieIntel shared them I (assume?) they're safe. pic.twitter.com/yvvjH7CvKU — TheGamingRevolution (@TheGamingRevo3) July 26, 2020 While nothing has been confirmed at this stage, leaks have suggested it may take Modern Warfare ’s grittiness one step further. The title will supposedly explore the Vietnam War from the perspectives of the US, South Vietnam and the Viet Cong, with excursions to other parts of the world. The game might also be the product of corporate drama, with Treyarch apparently taking over after Raven and Sledgehammer fought over the title. Treyarch co-head Jason Blundell also left the studio after 13 years, although his March departure was late enough into development that it might not have affected the upcoming game in a major way. Whatever game arrives, the announcement will come relatively late. Activision has historically announced Call of Duty games at or before E3 in June. With E3 cancelled , however, the publisher hasn’t had to stick to that timetable. An announcement might also be affected by the expected fall launches of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X , provided the game takes advantage of them. Don’t be surprised if Activision takes its time, then, no matter how accurate this leak may be.Read all >>
