Android 7.0 Nougat Update !!



As you probably heard Android 7.0 Nougat is officially out in public and it's available .
The biggest change is the Notification for sure the grouping , the more information , the quick replies ,the quick settings all of that stuff particularly  the way the notifications are organized have the biggest impact they are all grouped together now which means if you get multiple notification from same app they get bundled together and you  can separate them out when you want to take action on them . No matters how many notifications you get you can interact one at a time reply , reply , delete and other options can be performed one at a time .

The Second Big change is the double tapping multitasking window to quick switch . Split screen is also a new feature which is built in Android many companies like samsung, LG they are already using this .

The one of the biggest behind the scene changes in Android 7.0 is in the battery life department with Does on the go. Which let the phone go to its low power state when they are not being used like on shelf, in the pocket and its not woke then on theory it will save battery the same way the tablet does.
There are all new bunch of emoji , the boot time is faster you can now choose the color theme of keyboard or you can also set an image from the gallery as background for keyboard. you can now also add you face as trusted face to unload it faster.

ZTE Axon 7 : The Budget Smartphone ?



Good smartphone have gotten  really cheap and cheap smartphone have gotten really good . ZTE Axon 7 is really a good example of that I think it is the best budget smartphone right now .

There are five pillars of judging a smartphone where it is of $800 or $300 and those pillars are great build quality, great display,great performance , great battery life and great camera if you have all three in you phone the you phone is perfect .

Build Qulaity : Axon 7 is built great it has full metal jacket and pretty much no straight line anywhere it is similar to an Iphone with antenna line on top and bottom and round on edges.It has a sim slot with micro sd slot on the left and it has a USb-type c on the bottom with quick charge 3.0 .It also has a great screen bezel ratio with front facing stereo speaker .

 Display :  It a quad HD Amoled display and 2560 x 1400 pixel ratio it is decently visible outdoors the video experience with this phone is pretty amazing with front facing stereo speakers.

Performance :ZTE has packed Axon 7 with snapdragon 820 with Adreno 530 and 4GB ram the software which ZTE is using is overall is pretty smooth its not light weight though it is packing a lot of extra features is called Me Favor UI .you can set extra functions like voice unlock, gestures to take the screenshots , turning up the flash light or turning schedule power on and off its is pretty dope.
It has power saving mode , Battery saving mode when you are running out of battery .

Battery  : ZTE probably doesn't have the best battery but it has qualcom chipset so it supports quick charge 3.0 it have pretty good battery life with quad HD screen .

Google is developing a new OS - "Fuchsia"





Is it the time to say goodbye to Linux ?

Google is developing a new operation system named Fuchsia. It is unclear what the system is designed for , but the most notable point is Fuchsia is meant to ditch Linux Kernel (which Android is based on) .

The name of the project has emerged after code reading 'Pink + Purple ==Fuchsia (a new operation system)'. There were rumblings of a merger between Chrome OS and Android last year , so it could be the replacement for further down the line. However it is also possible that they are planning a new system for augmented reality.

Will Fuchsia replace Android ?

From some sample of code it is indicated that Fuchsia is going to be used for embedded system (things that are specialized and do not need operating system ).May be google is developing  this new operating system to replace its Chrome OS or they are planning to use this in OS in project ARA ,

Over a billion Android Devices are at Risk




Over a billion devices powered by Snapdragon SoC are at risk . TrendLabs has discovered serious snapdragon security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker by simply running a malicious app. Due to flaws at kernel level code, hackers could exploit the vulnerabilities to gain root access on Qualcom devices by installing malicious application . The could also get remote access of the device .

Affected Devices

Due to heavily customization of kernel by manufactures it is very difficult to exactly identifies the vulnerable devices. Google has suggested the devices running Android earlier than 4.4.4  Kitkat to 6.0.1 Marshmallow .




What can be done ?

Security patch is already released by Google in February Security update .However , as we all know how long it takes the companies to roll out the update, this puts most of the devices still at risk .
Popular devices likes LG G5 , Samsung Flagship like S6,S6 edge , Oneplus 3 and many more.

Before you get your software patched kindly avoid installing unwanted apps and games . Strictly do not install any app or games form any third party websites .

Pokemon Go :The Great Game and it's Errors

Pokemon Go was released last week.It's a virtual concept based on augmented-reality technology and it's really taking the people globally.

After the game was released it's in news that the number of active users are close to 10 million and that's sound pretty amazing isn't it?



Though some errors in the game spoils the mood for some which include :
  • The camera orientation is not detected
Pokemon Go camera orientation not detected issue

One of the major frustrating issue is many users are reporting that they are not able to use the camera / AR mode because of the camera orientation not detected. Well the issue seems to be that your phone is not having the gyroscopic sensor which is necessary for detection of orientation of phone.
No solution for this is available right and if it is a bug then wait for the official update in future.
  • The excessive usage of battery 
What to say in this , the Pokemon Go game uses GPS, internet and maps all at a same time thus the battery wipes out pretty fast at an average about 80% battery gets consume within 2 hours of excessive gaming.
  • Distorted game sound while playing
Sometimes the game hangs on it's own and a distorted disturbing sound can be continuously heard which is really annoying .

overall the game experience is really good and a healthy concept which is attracting users worldwide.
