Vivo is no longer just another Chinese manufacturer trying to copy Apple; as a matter of fact, it has not only risen as a global smartphone OEM to reckon with, one can go as far as saying that the Chinese company has managed to beat both Samsung and Apple when it comes to introducing true innovation. If you are wondering why anyone would think so, then you probably don't know that Vivo has already showcased the in-display, under the screen fingerprint scanner with its Vivo X20 Plus UD smartphone, that both Apple and Samsung have failed to do, even after repeated attempts by the latter in the last year or so. As if that was not impressive enough, take a look at the leaked shots of this smartphone from Vivo, which will likely be coming in with the in-screen fingerprint scanner and this gorgeous, truly bezel-less display.



Sources are unsure whether this is the Vivo Xplay 7 or not, but it could very well be. It would be really interesting to see if Vivo also packs in a 4K resolution in that beautiful display, just like the rumors had been predicting. If they do, that would make Vivo the only company apart from Sony to have a smartphone with a 4K display. It is quite possible that the upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC will be powering the device as well, alongside an internal storage capacity of 256GB/512GB. Would you buy this beauty if it became available in your country?

Tips and tricks from Fonehouse.co.uk


Mobile phones are a ubiquitous sight for people to see. We encounter them frequently, and they're used for a wide selection of different tasks. However, how many people actually know how to get the most from their phone?


It's relatively common for people not to understand how to utilise a phone in the best possible way. We presume that they're automatically set up to make our lives as easy as possible, but this isn't always the case. In a lot of cases, you have to really know a trick or two to make sure that your phone is optimised correctly. Sites like Fonehouse have heard many different ideas for how best to try and make the phone the best possible thing it can be, and we're going to be looking at some of them here and now.


Back Up What You Can't Afford To Lose


Music, photos, important business documents. They're all things that we can access without a moment's hesitation, but they're not permanent. If you drop your phone, damage it or expose it to water, you can lose everything. This obviously isn't something that you want to happen, so you need to make sure that you backup anything that you can't afford to lose. It protects all the things that you want to keep in the event of them perhaps not being available to you. Technology is far from perfect after all, and in a world of bugs and faults, there's never been more of a need to stay secure.


Consider A New Browser


A lot of the core apps provided to you by your phone will be pretty useful. However, perhaps it's time to consider something other than Safari for your iPhone. Every browser will offer you a different and possibly better experience. For example, Google Chrome allows users to view tabs that they have open on another device. It's worth taking the time to look around and see what is available to you regarding browsers, and even consider alternatives for other things as well. Perhaps a more specialist reminder application, or a music provider that works for your lifestyle.


Folders Are Your Friend


Trawling through pages of apps can be an absolute chore to try and do. When you're just looking for one application in three or four pages worth, you soon find yourself wishing for an alternative. This is where folders come into play. They're designed to help you sort applications based on their usage and characteristics. They can be and often are your best friends, so it's worth taking the time to stop and look at how you can arrange things.


Use Shortcuts


Shortcuts are designed to help us get to various parts of our phones without having to navigate through hundreds of different menus. A lot of home screens on phones, especially those made by Apple, are designed to make it so that people can get around their phones with ease. Plus, a lot of them can be customised and changed to suit the needs of the people who are using them, so it's perfect for so many different people to use. If you don't use your home screen all that much, you should definitely look into how you can customise it to suit your specific needs and requirements.


Keep It Simple


All things considered, sometimes it's best to keep your phone as simple as possible. The more applications that you have on the phone and the more you try and do at once, the higher the risk of something going wrong. Sometimes the best way to do things is to keep it simple and straightforward. This is achieved by limiting the number of apps you have open, and not pushing the phone too far.


All in all, these are just a few of the different things which you can do to make sure that you are getting the most from your phone. Because we all use our mobiles so often, it is so important that we take the time to make the most of the phones that we have. Despite what we would like to think, our phones aren't actually always set up to make our lives the most convenient that they can be. This requires us to tailor all of the various functions and features of the device to suit our own unique needs and requirements. Only by doing this can we expect to have a phone which is convenient, highly intuitive and attuned to our lives.



We knew it was coming and now it's official. Qualcomm has publicly detailed the specifics of their latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 835. It will allow smartphone manufacturers to utilize better technology and equipments in the mobile phones of 2017 in terms of photography, machine learning and displays.



The CPU in the 835 chip is an octa-core, semi-custom Kryo 280 CPU core design with possible ARM Cortex-A73 cores powering it. The Kryo 280 system is divided into four cores with 1.9GHz clock speed for efficiency and four cores with 2.45GHz clock speed for performance. Take a look at the image below to understand some of the differences between the SD 835, the SD 821 and the SD 820.



Apart from providing a boost of about 20% over the SD 820, the SD 835 will also allow for much better battery efficiency. Qualcomm expects that around 80% of all the tasks usually performed by a smartphone will be handled by the comparatively low-powered CPU cores, thereby providing an additional two and a half hour of battery life, as compared to the SD 820. Let's not forget that all of this has a lot to do with Samsung's 10nm FinFET process, on which the new chips are being built.




The Adreno 540 GPU is similar to the Adreno 530 in architecture, but the faster trilinear filtering and GPGPU compute will lead to a 25% performance boost over the older GPU. In terms of display, it can support 10-bit color at 4K resolution with a constant 60fps frame rate. The Adreno 540 GPU can now handle 107.4 million colors (previously 16.8 million) as well. In summary, we would say that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is the most powerful and revolutionary mobile chip yet. If you are interested in more technical details, check it out here.

A company called ecoATM recently conducted a survey of 1,050 Apple iPhone owners age 18 or older.

 

This survey revealed that most of the respondents are very loyal to their current iPhone. When asked what new feature would make them switch from their current handset to the Samsung Galaxy S6, 26% said that nothing could get them to swap their current handset for the new S6 flagship. 32% said that a lower price point for the Galaxy S6 could entice them to switch.

 

What would it take for an Apple iPhone owner to switch to a Samsung phone?

According to the same survey, 24% would do it if it were a free swap, and 16% would make the trade if the Samsung handset was offered to them at a lower price point. Outside of pricing, 21% would swap their iPhone for a Samsung branded smartphone based on the latter having a longer battery life. 18% would do it for a larger screen-size and 3% would make the change if they saw a celebrity using a Samsung phone. By the way, 16% of iPhone users surveyed said that they would never exchange their iPhone for another smartphone under any condition.

 

S6 iphone users

 

So what is it that prevents iPhone users from switching to a new phone?

A quarter of the respondents with an iPhone said that the fact that their friends and family have one is a reason not to switch. 21% cite the better features on the device as the reason why they stay with it, while 19% say they exclusively use Apple products.

Finally Xiaomi revealed the Mi 5 at the MWC 2016 event held in Barcelona after close to two years of development. This was one of the devices that had garnered lot of attention as a successor to the Mi 4. While the whole world of mobile enthusiasts were waiting for the launch of Mi 5, Xiaomi released the Mi 4i and not-so-exciting Mi 4c. This way Mi 5 as a flagship device remained as a dream for a long time. Surprisingly, there were lot of rumours about the launch of this device, but 24th February, 2016 was the date on which we finally witnessed the launch.


So what exactly is packaged in the Mi 5? Before getting into that, let's first check out the three variants - Standard, High, and Exclusive. In terms of design all of these versions are more or less similar, featuring curved edges in the back in order to make it easy to hold. The difference comes in the form of build material - the first two have a refined hybrid of metal and Gorilla Glass 4.0 and the Exclusive variant has ceramics and glass.


Given below are the features that make Mi 5 a lucrative option:

  • OS: Android 6 Marshmallow
  • Dimensions: 144,5 x 69.2 x 7.25mm

Ever since the Note 7 disaster, reports and surveys have been rampant, as well as conflicting. Just the other day, we were hearing about IDC's report which stated that roughly half of the Note 7 owners may switch over to the fruity side (read Apple iPhone 7), while today, we have a report from ReportLinker that says otherwise.



This particular survey was conducted on 500 smartphone users in the US, over the internet. While a majority of the customers (60% approx.) felt that Samsung did not handle the Note 7 recall episode well enough, about 86% of the survey population stated that they would still consider Samsung smartphones the next time they decide to buy a new phone.



In fact, 84% of the people voted that they do not feel that their smartphone poses any kind of risk to them. Provided that Samsung manages to deliver a product that we had come to expect from the company before the Note 7, the Galaxy S8 seems all ready to lift Samsung up and out of the ditch which the Note 7 landed it in.

A recent report based on a survey conducted by The Reputation Institute suggests that Samsung is the most trusted brand for teenagers and anyone else who was born in or after the year 2000. Considering the fact that no other smartphone manufacturer made it to the list apart from Sony, the report is an indication of the amount of trust that people put in the Korean manufacturer's phones. Even though Sony did make it to the list, we are inclined to believe that it is more due to their PlayStation line of products than their smartphones.



This survey and its results are based on the quality of the manufactured products, employee treatment, innovation in the specific line of business and the conduct of the company as a corporate member of the United States. In all their studies across the country on millennials (people born on or after the year 2000), The Reputation Institute found that while shopping, most of them had an affinity towards the products that were made by Samsung. Samsung is also one of the most successful companies in the US as a whole and this result just unveils one of the reasons as to why the MNC is so successful here.

According to DisplayMate, the Galaxy S8 quite simply has the best looking display on a mobile phone yet. DisplayMate is an industry expert when it comes to calibration and testing of displays in general and not only smartphones. If you doubt that title of being the best panel ever, check out what they found in their extensive testing of the smartphone's Super AMOLED QHD+ panel and decide for yourself.


Apparently, the Infinity display on the S8 and the S8+ has a peak brightness above 1,000 nits! If you have no idea what that means then consider the fact that at the highest brightness settings, the Pixel XL caps out at 403 nits, the iPhone 7 at 700 nits and the S7 itself at 855 nits. This basically puts the S8 and S8+ on an entirely different league and sunlight visibility issues non-existent.


In terms of the color gamut, the Infinity display can cover as much as 142% of sRGB / Rec.709 Gamuts and 113% of the DCI-P3 Color Gamut. The display also has Mobile HDR Premium certification from the UHD Alliance for better dynamic range. For the rest of the report, click here.

The S5 was released back in 2014 and three years later, it still continues to be on top of America's favourite list of Samsung smartphones. One would think that after so much time and Samsung releasing significantly better smartphones since then, people would have moved on to something more recent, but you would be thinking wrong. According to Kantar World Panel, 15.6% of all Samsung smartphone users in the US are currently using the Galaxy S5. The second and third places are currently being held by the Galaxy S7 (11.5%) and the Galaxy S6 (11.4%) respectively. The Galaxy S7 Edge (5.8%) is surprisingly in the fourth place, in spite of the curved variant being reported as being more popular earlier.


If you are as surprised by this little revelation as we are, then consider the fact that these are the figures AFTER 28% of Samsung users in the country just shifted to a newer Samsung smartphone in the last 12 months! I always thought the Galaxy S5 wasn't much of an upgrade from my S4 back in the day; guess people don't exactly agree, at least not in the US anyway.

While the Galaxy S8 is without a doubt a pinnacle of achievement for Samsung Mobiles, it isn't without its flaws. However, I think one of the biggest flaws in the Galaxy S8 is not the fingerprint scanner but the way they managed the whole affair with Bixby. After investing so much into marketing their AI assistant and giving the phone a dedicated hardware button which just simply cannot be remapped to anything else, the S8 and S8+ were launched with a voice assistant that had no voice capabilities! Unfortunately, as per the Korea Herald, if you own a Galaxy S8/S8+ in the US or in any of the other English speaking nations around the world, you will likely not be seeing Bixby anytime soon.


In order to understand what exactly went wrong here, take a note of the following points.


• Samsung did not have sufficient Big Data available to them at that time to enable the voice functions of Bixby


• This happened because Samsung adopted Big Data integration much later than its competition


• There's a huge language barrier in between Samsung's English speaking developers and Korean developers which is making communication difficult


If you are wondering when you can expect Bixby voice communication to finally make its appearance on your S8 or S8+, the time is expected to be somewhere during the fourth quarter of the year.

If you thought that tablets are way too flimsy, Samsung has just released the Galaxy Tab Active 2 which can take a hit and then some! Exclusive to the US, the device is internally the same as any other Galaxy Tab 2, but on the outside, it's quite literally a beast. The MIL-STD 810 certification guarantees that the Galaxy Tab Active 2 can survive through high pressure, extreme temperatures (hot or cold), rapid vibrations and even drops from heights that would shatter other lesser tablets. Additionally, it also sports a standard IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.


While we all would like our devices to be a bit sturdier than they generally are, this may seem a bit excessive to many, until they realize that Samsung has a specific crowd in mind for the Galaxy Tab Active 2. Apparently, this is tablet for employees who must work in the harshest of conditions. While targeted primarily at businesses, those that love camping, trekking and mountaineering might have use for the tab Active 2 as well.

Eager stock market analysts have been quick to pour over the latest Q4 2015 SEC filings from Alphabet, Google's parent company. The market responded quickly with both the Class A and Class C stock trading up to a $750-780 price range. This makes Alphabet not just good at letters, but also with numbers as it now eclipses Apple's market capitalisation to be the most valuable company in the world.


In fairness, Apple's earnings were showing signs of hitting a plateau with its iPads not selling as many units as they once did as interest moves more to the phablet-size phone market and away from larger tablets which are less convenient on the run. Investors in Alphabet were quick to double down on their positions and others buying into Alphabet for the first time on the positive trading news.


Alphabet revenues year-over-year rose 24% compared to 12% the previous year. The source of the accelerated revenue growth has been primarily from advertising. The picture is a mixed one through with ad clicks rising by 31%, but the cost per click for adverts falling by 13%. Overall, Alphabet still came out ahead.


The company also noted on a recent call with investors that Gmail, its email service, now has more than 1 billion active users each month. That's active users, not open accounts. Only What's App and Facebook can say the same.


 



Let's get this out of the way first; the iPhone 7 has scored significantly more on AnTuTu than any other Android smartphone in existence till date. The 178,397 points that it scored according to a recent report is just off the charts. However, the new Apple A10 chip did have fewer pixels to push than any of the flagship Android handsets on the list as the iPhone 7 only sports a resolution of 750 × 1334. In spite of that, it is currently the reigning king sitting on top of the list (unofficially for now).



That being said, Chinese handsets from manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, LeEco, Nubia, Lenovo and of course, OnePlus are on top of the AnTuTu score chart when it comes to Android devices. The much loved OnePlus 3 leads the table for now with a score of 140288, followed by the Vivo Xplay 5 Elte (138,706), the LeEco LeMax 2 (138,026), the Nubia Z11 (137,685), the Lenovo Zuk Z2 pro (136,853) and the Xiaomi Mi5 (136,773).


It is a bit surprising to see the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge trail so far behind at the number 7 spot in 2016, because the S6 was leading the pack last year convincingly at one point. Since these Chinese smartphones are a lot cheaper than the ones made by Samsung, in spite of being manufactured with quality hardware, are we witnessing the slow rise of new leaders in the smartphone industry?

Smartphones occupy more and more of our time rapidly turning young people and not only into an "eyes on the phone" generation. And as technology dependency is on the rise, people are always looking for new applications and games. The good news is that the possibilities are endless, whether you are an Android or an iOS user.


For 2018, statistics point out to the following innovative applications as a must have, depending, of course, on the field of use:


Organization


When you have a lot to do, it's hard to remember the shopping list and the time you're scheduled with the dentist. That's why an application can help you organize your time more efficiently. 24me is an application that works as a personal assistant. It binds somewhat more elements of your life in order to organize your time more efficiently. It sends you notifications of what you have to do and the events that follow. An interesting thing is that it even gives you information about traffic, advising when it is advisable to leave the car to avoid crowding.


Photo Editor


Whether it's a self-image or an artistic picture of a sunset, it's always like they're more wow if you add a filter. Snapseed is one of the favorites because it has a wide range of filters. For example, if you take a picture of the sky and add the "Drama" filter, the effect is amazing. Another application highly recommended would be Aviary, which even has a special filter for food pictures. Besides, filters greatly emphasize colors and make them look more pronounced.


The Music


Do you know the moment when you hear a cool song on the radio and you really want to know what it's called, but all the lyrics are indistinguishable? It's kind of hard to find on Google so you might consider downloading Shazam, an application that records the song and in a few seconds displays the name of the song and the artist.


Travels


Before embarking on a journey, it would be good if you also prepare your smartphone with some useful applications besides your clothes. Google Translate for example is a useful application for quickly translating texts from various languages. You can even take a picture of a menu for example and you will receive a translation that will help you order more easily the desired dish. Time Out is an application that shows you a lot of things to do and visit, from restaurants to events and museums. Another useful application is XE Currency, which helps you make quick conversions from different currencies.


Lifestyle


If you need inspiration in any field, you can try the Pinterest or WeHeartit applications. From fashion, decor or art, these applications are an inexhaustible source of ideas and stunning pictures. My Fitness Pal is the most popular fitness app in the world and not for anything. This helps you calculate calories, find interesting recipes, and lead a healthy lifestyle. At this chapter, the numerous and highly engaging Online Gaming Apps, particularly the ones provided by each online Casino in part, play a huge role. Indeed, the mobile Casino pokies have advanced a great deal in the top of people's favorite entertainment sources.


Google Trips


One of the most useful applications can certainly be considered Google Trips, with which you can better plan your excursions or plan to organize them. The application gives you the best tourist sights according to your interests.


Waze


Even if you're an experienced driver, it's very likely that once you've come across a route that you do not know, or ever need a more interactive GPS, and get you out of trouble as soon as possible well Waze, could be the best application in this regard.


Greenify


This application has a simple logic, stopping all the processes running in the background and leaving just what you want. This can help you when you need more battery while simultaneously making the system work faster. Using this application requires little attention because it can completely stop all background activities, even alarms.


These are just a small part of the applications that can help us in everyday life while it's a well-known fact that we have reached a huge array of android apps available in the Play Store as well as iOS ones in App Store. Those readers out there keen on keeping up with the best and most popular ones only have to access the corresponding Store for their operating system and the multitude of novelties will do the rest.



It is an undisputable fact that mobile applications have penetrated into every modern person`s life. They are interconnected with almost every aspect of our everyday routine - from checking the weather to unlocking the house entrance door.


However, first mobile apps were created for entertainment purposes only. They fulfilled simple functions, suchlike calculator or music player. In the late 20th, the tendency of implementing mobile applications into businesses tended to grow. Surely, they possessed only a limited variety of functions, because of Java programming language constraints. However, on the other hand, they attracted more and more buyers to their owners, even if they were offline and could not intend a person to buy goods or services.


Nowadays the situation has changed expeditiously. Thanks to the development both of the Internet and mobile platforms, applications for smartphones became a "must-have" option in the entrepreneur toolset. As Bill Gates said, "If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business".


Do you still hesitate on creating a mobile application for your enterprise? Here are 5 basic tips on how you can improve your business process with a mobile app.


Expand the influence scope.


The evolution of smartphones began in the 2000s, but it`s supremacy over common computers has established only in the 2018 year. Globally, in April 2018 mobile traffic took more than 51% in the share of the worldwide web traffic (Statista.com). What is the reason? Allegedly, using a cellular phone for accessing web pages is more feasible than a standard PC. It is explained by an absence of expensive equipment, the necessity of installing huge devices, wiring the house and electricity usage.


People prefer to stay connected anytime. Thus, the number of population, who use a smartphone, outweighed the market of simple laptop users. Nevertheless, what does it mean for you as for an entrepreneur? We can highlight only one important thing - having only a website is not enough to compete properly with your rivals.


In other words, mobile application concept has changed. It transferred from an outstanding feature that only mega-sized companies could possess to the mandatory part of every concern. In order to attract customers, you need to fulfill their demands - and the majority of them prefer accessing your company remotely with their gadgets. So why do you still lose a half of your potential customers?


Always be in touch with your clients.


One more feasible feature of modern cellular phone software are push-messages and information collection system. This technology establishes a direct connection between database and clients smartphone and gives you a possibility to interact with your customers at any time. To make it more distinct, a bright example is social networks. If you receive a message on Facebook, your mobile phone will immediately react and depict a notification for you. So, why not to make friends with your clients in the same way?



Push-messages allow you to inform your customers about discounts, upcoming novelties, changes of working hours, the status of clients, good delivery order etc. Moreover, it is interactive. It implies that application gives you a possibility to review how many customers have visited your page after receiving a push message and how many of them ignored your letter. As a smartphone usually allows a developer to access basic information about a user. You can diversify the schedule of notification for different target groups. For instance, you can track that an individual customer is highly interested in sport's shoes. Use this information! Thus, you`d better notify him/her about an upcoming supply of new shoe collection in advance - he/she will be totally pleased having an individual approach.


On the other hand, an adverse effect of push-messages is that people can find they annoying and repulsive. And it is not unreasonable. Unfortunately, the majority of IT solutions send too many notifications to users, so the latter prefer just to turn it off. In order to avoid it, assure that your messages are feasible and informative at the same time, and they do not appear on the screen constantly. Also, take care of making the info as short as possible. Finding the lowest common denominator about the number of suchlike notifications may take some time, but it totally worth the efforts.


Make your brand recognizable.


Regardless you are a pioneer or a professional executive, you need to make your company became prominent in the background of other rivals. One of the most lucrative ways to intensify the development of your company is to enhance customers' loyalty to your brand. And business apps are exactly the tool you need.


First of all, your logo will be shown every single time user unlocks a smartphone. He/she may not even contemplate about it, but it makes him/her remind your company subconsciously. Thus, you do not need even to promote it - users just get used to seeing it frequently and surely recall your logo when they face it somewhere else.


Furthermore, considering the fact that push messages are accompanied by depicting the logo of an application creates a notification, users are likely to accustom to your brand.


Integrate your application with a website.


As it was told some paragraphs above, having only a website is not enough to compete properly on a contestant market, but the mobile app is not the resource that can fulfill your needs by itself solus. A silver bullet is to combine and integrate both of them. It can be done using new interactive platforms and programming solution.


In order to figure out which features better suit to website or application, try to order a SWOT and PEST analysis at AuEduBirdie service, also you will say: "I would prefer to pay someone to do my assignment" and you will be right if you choose this service.It will provide you feasible information regarding which services are better used within surfing website and which ones are better perceived on the screen of a cellular phone.



What is more, you can also establish some kind of social network. Just provide clients with a possibility to create their own profiles with personal data and rating system. Clients are more willing to trust people who have already purchased the same good/service as they are going to. Live feedbacks are a brilliant motivating factor to make sure the description mentioned on a website perfectly suits real conditions of a good or service.


Cost reduction.


The last but not least is a matter of expenditures on posters and advertisement within the marketing company in a destination place of distribution. The mobile application provides you both opportunities to save money and even to earn them. This explains the high demand for it among modern businesses. It gives huge benefits in terms of cost reduction.


If your boss is willing to plunge your expenditures exponentially, pay attention at mobile ad services. For example, mobile ads generated roughly 80 percent of Facebook's $5.6 billion ad revenue (Entrepreneur.com). You are able to spend your money on advertising more lucrative than usual. The milestone of this method is that you are provided with advanced targeting tools. It allows you to diversify your buyers by age, gender, weight, height, living place etc. Thus, you can spend less money and efforts. But at the same time, you perceive the same performance as using traditional advertisement.  In other words, if you choose mobile ads, be assured that the money you spend will totally for you.


Contrariwise, if your app is created not to attract customers but to generate high revenue, you can always install ads service within your application. It is for free and does not require any knowledge of programming languages. You will get paid each time your client click on the banner of another company appears on the screen. A good example is educational applications. Each time student calls an app to figure out a formula or a rule, he/she watches a promo of other usable platforms for learners.


Conclusion.


The mobile application is a necessary tool for every entrepreneur nowadays. If you are willing not only to stay afloat on a market but to expand your business and make it more profitable, then you should contemplate an app for your demands. Deliver personalized offers to customers and consider theirs. Remember to strike the right balance in messaging your clients and processing an information you receive from them.

When running on electric, the Syrma is entirely silent, that is aside from the screeching of rubber as you burn out of your driveway. Created by 11 students as part of their Masters thesis, the concept was developed and then produced in full scale in time for the 2015 International Geneva Motor Show.

Did we miss your favourite type of online games? If so, then let us know in the comments section below.



Mobile games are an integral part of our everyday lives today. With more than 2 billion smartphone users, there is a massive player base behind them - no wonder mobile has become the most used (and most profitable) gaming platform of the world. The top games come and go - titles like Pokemon Go, Clash of Clans, and similar ones, briefly take over the top spot in the list of the most used apps of the world. There is a game type, though, that is constantly in the top 10, with millions choosing its casual fun day after day: slot machines. In the US, they are played socially, while in the rest of the world, players can choose between social versions and the real thing, offered by the Royal Vegas Canada (among many others).


With millions choosing to spin the reels all over the world, slot machines are clearly among the most played casual games at a global scale. Let's see which were the Top 5 Most Popular Slots for October.


5. Dragon Dance


The Dragon Dance is a very popular street spectacle in China - an integral part of many major festivals. To make every day a celebration, the Royal Vegas has brought forth the Dragon Dance slot machine this February, as a way to greet the Chinese New Year. The game is not only popular around this holiday, though - this October, it was the fifth most played game at the casino.


4. Shanghai Beauty


A new addition to the Royal Vegas game library, Shanghai Beauty takes its players on a trip into the sophisticated, elegant world of Asia. While the game doesn't have many bonus features, its combination of relaxing music and exciting action has turned it into a favorite last month.


3. Mega Moolah


While the game itself is fun to play, most Mega Moolah players choose it for its big win. It's the game with the most generous jackpot at the Royal Vegas - it pays out millions to its luckiest fans several times a year. This jungle-themed slot machine was the third most played game here this October.


2. Bar Bar Black Sheep


A game based on a popular nursery rhyme, Bar Bar Black Sheep has more than just a cute look and a soothing music. Its reels are filled with farm-related symbols, along with a BAR symbol borrowed from the classic Vegas slot machines. Two BARs, coupled with a Black Sheep symbol, trigger the game's generous bonus, paying out up to 999 times the triggering bet.


1. Lost Vegas


With Halloween coming, Royal Vegas players seemed to have found their taste for horror. Lost Vegas was the perfect game for them - it took them on a trip to a zombie-ridden Las Vegas, allowing them to join the Survivors or the Zombies in their quest for unimaginable riches.

 



Bingo has been around for decades now and although the Bingo Hall's popularity isn't what it used to be before 2005, it continues to remain one of the most popular games online. On that note, let's now take a look at the two versions of bingo that are the most popular and can be played from any laptop, tablet or smartphone.

 

75 Ball

 

This is the version where the grid is 5 x 5 and with the exception of the one in the middle, every one of the remaining 24 squares has a number in it. The central square is free for all. The player who manages to match all the numbers in a line first wins the Line 1 prize and this goes on till Line 5. These lines can be vertical, horizontal or even diagonal.

 

90 Ball

 

This one is more popular than the 75 ball bingo in the UK and it's just as popular online today, as it was twelve years ago inside the Bingo Halls. All the tickets have three row and nine columns so the games are much longer than the 75 Ball version. Apart from the Full House prize, there are two other prizes to be won here, namely the Line 1 and the Line 2 prizes. As one can imagine, the Full house prize is usually the biggest one and to win it, you will need to check off all the numbers on your ticket. It's fairly easy and uncomplicated to start with.

 

Can You Win Real Money in Online Bingo?

 

As it turns out, you can win real money with online bingo and it's not that difficult either, but you will need a bit of luck and some strategies to increase your chances. In case you are new, don't worry about it, because most reputed bingo mobile sites give plenty of free chances and bonuses to their new players so that they can get used to the feel of how things work.

The gaming world is almost unrecognisable from what it was in the 20th century. Console and PC games are becoming less popular as more people opt to play games on their smartphones or tablets. Today, mobile games bring in nearly half of global gaming revenue - and it's set to become even more dominant as a platform over the next few years.

 

Avid consumers live in a world where they can access games like poker in the pub, roulette on the bus and blackjack in the office.

 

Blackjack is in many ways the perfect game to play on the go - as the games are short and the turnaround so quick. It's a great way to make some fast cash. Some gamblers prefer US blackjack, which offers multiple options for betting minimums and maximums - making your gambling experience even more tailored to your lifestyle and preferences. Find out more about the rules of blackjack games such as Multihand Blackjack, Single Deck Blackjack or American blackjack and why it makes for a great mobile casino experience.

 

How did mobile gaming become such a success? Let's look at the history of this form of gaming and speculate how it could evolve into the future.

 

Online casino games: the early days

 

 mobile-casinos-2

 

Today you'll see that online casinos are engaging and immersive enough to give gamers an experience that rivals anything a land-based casino can deliver - but this wasn't always the case.

 

The issue of who created the first online casino is largely disputed, but developer Microgaming is largely credited with building the first ever online gambling software in 1994. However, it wasn't until two years later that the first bet was accepted online.

 

In 1996, InterCasino opened their metaphorical internet doors and offered customers the opportunity to play 18 casino games from the comfort of their own home. It was a landmark in the industry.

 

Initially, online casino games represented an element of intrigue for eager players who were keen to gamble within their own environment. However, there were huge challenges to actually playing. The games were incredibly clunky and difficult to use, and the graphics were underdeveloped. At this point, it was still the case that, if you were really keen on gambling, you'd still be going to a land-based casino rather than a virtual one.

 

Online casinos simply weren't good enough.

 

Of course, one of the biggest challenges was the lack of access. Not everyone had a computer with the internet back then. The market was small and relied on a dedicated gamblers accessing online services from their desktop - a long way off the accessibility we enjoy today.

 

How online gaming progressed

 

mobile-casinos-3

 

The quality and abundance of online casinos have reflected the huge strides made in digital technology over the past two decades.

 

Early pioneers Microgaming along with Playtech and Net Entertainment started to improve their offerings - and more competitors started to vie for a share of this market. There were 15 online casinos in 1997, but over 200 just a year later - attributed to increased internet speeds and broadband access, particularly in the US and UK. In 1998 the global internet gambling industry brought in £834 million in revenue, and it was only going to grow from there.

 

As online casino gaming was getting quicker, it was also getting better. Improved graphics with more intense special effects appealed to more gamers. Add to that a broader selection of games - including slots, blackjack, poker and other casino favourites.

 

In addition, the UK gambling act transformed the image of online casinos. They weren't seen as a seedy, unregulated part of the internet - they were official places to game, just like land-based casinos. Plus, with the legalisation of online gambling, governments were also raking in greater tax revenue and there were more employment opportunities - so everyone was a winner. It marked a massive shift in the industry.

 

The move from desktop to mobile

 

mobile-casinos-4

 

Thanks to Steve Jobs and the gurus Apple gurus in Silicon Valley, the world is now driven by smartphones. Online casinos recognised the potential of mobile gambling and quickly developed software to bring their services to the mobile market.

 

These very first games allowed users to do something that had never been done before - gamble on the go. The in-built processing power of smartphones combined with their displays made the move from desktop to mobile seamless.

 

Again, accessibility was key to the development of mobile gaming. Improved mobile broadband across the world, phones with better processing speeds capable of handling the demands of high-quality games boosted the user experience of gambling apps - and the user numbers soon followed.

 

mobile-casinos-5

 

While desktop gambling sites remain popular, the mobile market has allowed betting companies to appeal to a new market of potential customers. Now developers can rake in steady revenues from players by offering in-app purchases and keeping their games free. Those punters previously put off by the exclusivity of betting shops and casinos can now make bets from their phone - anywhere, anytime.

 

The future of mobile casinos

 

One of the drawbacks of an online casino is the lack of ‘real feel' that customers get when playing online - but operators are increasingly able to challenge that with immersive gameplay that could accelerate the decline of traditional land-based casinos, which have been struggling to compete with the industry as it is in the last decade.

 

As ever, the industry is always looking for new ways to adapt and the most talked advancement at the moment is virtual reality. The industry's biggest developers and betting companies are investing heavily in software that will allow users to explore a completely interactive virtual casino.

 

Virtual Reality has seemingly been in the pipeline for the past decade, however it finally looks like taking off with the success of traditional gaming VR headsets and ‘live beyond live' casino technology on the horizon.

 

Another big step forward could be the relaxation of online gambling restrictions in the US. If this continues, the World Wide Web could become the new Las Vegas.
