OnePlus has always been in the business of offering the most outrageously powerful phones at insanely cheap prizes. While the likes of Xiaomi, Oppo and Realme has been lately stealing a little of their mojo, they are still a respected force in the industry and are ever-anxious to prove it.
So, recently, they launched their OnePlus7 Pro. This smartphone had every feature bar a laser sight and cryogenic-cooled missile seeker and is quite competitively priced. While critics were generally effusive in their praise of the new OnePlus flagship, the camera performance was judged as good but not really great and not all that competitive with other cameras found on other recent flagship devices.
This judgement apparently stung OnePlus and the eggheads there speedily got to work crafting an all-around update that would presumably fix every identified flaw. Such an update would also make it possible for the OnePlus7 Pro to soundly beat all other smartphone cameras in its category.
This update is the recently released OxygenOS 9.5.7. that apart from improving the overall smartphone beast that is the OnePlus7 Pro also amps up the camera performance to undreamt of heights.
Changes include the following:
Better overall contrast and colour performance.
Better white balance consistency on the triple camera.
Better shooting accuracy and autofocus stability.
Elimination of the dismal greenish hue seen on photos taken in low light environments.
Elimination of noise in the all-important HDR scene.
Improvement in both the contrast and colour saturation ability of the ultra wide sensor.
Enhanced clarity and less noise for low light pictures taken in ultra wide mode.
Enhanced clarity and less noise in telephoto mode.
Enhanced clarity and better colour in Nightscape mode.
Enhanced brightness and clarity in photos taken in low light .environments in the Nightscape mode.
OnePlus 7 Pro Makes It Happen
While the above on its own is breathtaking, the update as well makes possible some sweet system-level upgrades that bear telling. This includes the optimization of the Double Tap To Wake feature, as well as the fixing of frustrating issues with the Ambient Display feature. The screen now has better touch sensitivity, you can use features such as deposit by phone method in online casinos very easily. There is noticeable audio quality enhancement during voice calls from third-party apps.
As with most updates, this particular one will be gradually rolled out and not all folks will get it at the same time. The update is a "mere" 127MB and can thus be downloaded without wrecking the data balance account of users.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is, of course, the very first device from that oh-so-famous company that has a triple camera set up sitting pretty at the back. These beauties comprise a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor that is equipped with OIS, EIS, a 7P lens and an aperture of f/1.6.
There is also an ultra-wide angle shooter that measures 16MP and with an f/2.2 aperture and 117 FoV. The last is an 8MP telephoto shooter that has 3x optical zoom, OIS and an aperture of f/22.4.
The selfie camera at the front of this phablet is a 16MP pop-up shooter with a Sony IMX471 sensor, EIS and an aperture of f/2. This all adds up to some serious muscle when taking photos or just living the perfect Instagram life.

Being a leader in your field of work is what many aspire to be, although not all who have this dream will be fortunate to achieve it. While at the same time not all who move up the ladder necessarily become good managers either.
LEAD FROM THE TOP
Whether you are in charge of one person or one hundred, the pressure that comes with the extra responsibility of leadership is not something that should be diminished, especially as a businesses success or failure is usually dependent on the orders from the top.
In the pursuit of business success having a good workforce is only half the battle, it's what you can do with your staff which is key. Get the best out of co-workers and your company will go from strength to strength.
However, on the flipside should you not got manage to unlock the true potential of your staff then it means you could be in for a rocky period ahead. One that could lead to a set of personnel cutbacks somewhere down the road.
Many have asked the question, just what makes a good leader in the workplace and it is one that in fairness does not have a definitive answer. The simple reason being is that no two sets of staff are the same.
EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT
Every group of staff that needs to be led will come from a mix of different backgrounds and will bring their own personal attributes to the table, while at the same time there are a number of different managerial styles that can be applied.
Therefore, it is all about trying to get the two components to mesh perfectly in a bid to help your business prosper and even though there are a number of different permutations in the workplace there are some central staples that can be applied across the board in regard to leadership.
Most people will have the point drilled into them that work is the most important aspect of their life, something that is not strictly true. There's no doubting that gainful employment is a key aspect especially as it allows people to live their day to day lives.
Unless the work that is being worked on is one that is more altruistic in nature such as charity or volunteer work, the chances are you are going to need some financial inducement for the job that you carry out.
FINDING THE BALANCE
At the same time though workers need to be careful they don't become a slave to a wage and make sure that they find the correct work life balance in their job. This is somewhere that good leadership skills can be displayed.
If a staff member seems deluged with work, then here is the time to step in and address the situation. Perhaps take time to chat to that member of staff and allow them to raise any concerns about the current workload.
From here you can delegate some of that load to other members of the team. It could be you have an excellent worker who cannot do their job to the best of their abilities due to them getting bogged down with the more unimportant facets that they have to deal with.
There's no question that you can push your staff to work hard, something that not only has a benefit to the business if results are delivered, but also because it means that it will allow them to develop both professionally and personally.
Driving through a big project and delivering on time may mean going the extra mile at times, but the sense of achievement that comes with it is a feeling that is very hard to replicate and brings a lot of personal pride.
However, as a leader of a team or group you need to make sure that your you don't push your staff too hard. There is a very fine balancing act that needs to be undertaken here, as you need to discover where their breaking point is.
And it is one that really you don't want to reach as that could then have serious repercussions for your business further down the line, it only takes a workplace meltdown to occur for a whole host of momentum to be lost.
It's a similar scenario to one you would find at a casino, one that comes with weighing up risk versus reward. The risk is asking too much from your staff and facing a negative backlash, while the reward is delivering your objectives on time.
GIVE SOMETHING BACK
If a big project is in progress and there is a large amount of work that needs to be done, then another key aspect of being a good leader is being able to motivate your staff during what might see like tough times.
You should be prepared to give something back, especially in regard to time. If someone is constantly working late, then why not give them a half day as an act of gratitude to say that their work is not going unnoticed.
Or why not establish Friday drinks in the final hour of the week, not only does it release the pressure of a busy few days, but it will also allow you and your team to bond on a more social level. If your team all get on with each other then they will be prepared to go the extra mile when it matters. Maybe you could allow them to play mobile slots during their lunch break or maybe have a friendly office game of Texas Hold'em poker, which is both fun and stimulating.
As a leader you can also take the team out for lunch say once a month. Again, it not only offers a more sociable element, but it also gets your staff out of the confines of the office and mixes up their working day.
That's not to say that's all about team lunches and drinks, ultimately there is still work that needs to be done. At the same time though a lot could be said for the phrase "do the job and not the hours" and the benefits that come with a more flexible approach.
If work is done by 4:30 and your staff are due to finish at 6, then why not send them home to say thanks for a job well done. An act that will boost morale and keep you in your staff's good books, showing that you can be a good person as well as a good leader.
The Nokia D1C was largely revealed when it first made an appearance onto Geekbench a while ago, and now the smartphone has appeared on AnTuTu. This further confirms that Nokia is coming back to the mobile business, along with revealing that the phone will have a Full High Definition panel. It is always exciting for those that still have a soft corner for the Finnish phone company to get confirmations about Nokia's return. If you do not know much about the D1C already, check out the screenshot and the specifications listed below.
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz
GPU: Adreno 505
Front/rear camera sensors: 8mp/13mp
Internal storage: 32GB
Android version: 7.0 Nougat
From what we can see here, the D1C is a low-mid range device and definitely not the higher end model that we are still waiting to get a hint of, via leaks. If reports are to be believed, then the company will make its comeback with at least one more smartphone, if not two. We will let you know as soon as more news turns up.

HTC continues its winning streak in the 3rd Quarter. HTC's financial report for the Q3,2014 states the company made a profit of $19 million (NT$0.6 billion). Revenue for the period is $1.38 billion (NT$41.9 billion), which is down from $2.17 billion from the previous quarter.
The company is content with how the HTC One M8 held its ground for the period and continued to sell well despite growing competition. The mid-range Desire line-up is also profitable for HTC, but it didn't specify exact shipment figures for any device.
In the last quarter, the HTC One M8 was the main culprit for the company's $92 million profit turnout. HTC is looking up for a similar to Q3 last quarter of the year with a revenue of $1.38 billion - $1.55 billion.
The last month of the year is getting closer as we approach the end of 2016 and just like last year, we are expecting brand new versions of Samsung's Galaxy A-series to be unveiled in December. That Expectation was pleasantly revitalized when the A7 (2017) showed up two days ago on AnTuTu. Here is a summary of what we gathered about the A7 (2017) in terms of specifications from the AnTuTu appearance and leaks.
Display: 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED panel
SoC: Exynos 7870 with Mali-T830 GPU
Internal storage: 64GB
Camera: 16-mp sensors both in front and at the back of the device
It seems that the A7 2017 edition is about to enter certification stage with the FCC and CCC, as it's clearly near the end of its testing phase. At this rate, the smartphone should become available by January 2017. It would be interesting to see if Samsung decides to make its new A-series smartphones available before January, in order to make use of the holiday season.

Over the years, the import tracking site Zauba has revealed countless devices to us and this time it's the Galaxy Tab S3 which was sited. It isn't uncommon for unreleased gadgets to be sent to India for R&D purposes, especially when it comes to Samsung. Here we see the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S3 with the model number SM-T825 along with a price tag. However, the Tab S3 will probably be priced higher than ₹34,138 ($503 approximately) mentioned in the description.
There will also be a Wi-Fi only variant of the Tab S3 (SM-T820) with a lower price tag but otherwise identical specs. Speaking of specs, we have little to no idea about what Samsung will bring to the market with its next flagship tablet, other than the fact that it will sport a Super AMOLED 9.7-inch 2K display just like its predecessor. Rumors suggest that the Tab S3 will possibly be released in early 2017, but it can get delayed due to the negative impact which the Note 7 disaster had on Samsung.

After a whole list of rumors, leaks, Wi-Fi certification and FCC certification reports, Samsung has finally made the fourth iteration of its Tizen powered smartphone official. In the words of President Dj Koh himself, "The Samsung Z4 brings a simplified mobile experience to first-time smartphone users and represents our ongoing commitment to expanding the Tizen ecosystem." It has to be said that when Koh said, "simplified mobile experience," he wasn't kidding, because the Z4 is as simple as they come! Check out the specifications below to get a second hand taste of the simplicity at work here.
4.5-inch display with a resolution of 480×800
1.5GHz quad-core SoC
1GB of RAM
5mp cameras with flash, both in front and at the back of the device
Dual SIM support
Frankly, I have no idea why Samsung would even release a handset like that, or who would buy them. If you are new to smartphones, you are much better off with a low end Android smartphone than one that is powered by Samsung's allegedly insecure and buggy OS. The only people who might buy them are those that have no idea how much more they can get for their money, especially in emerging markets like India. By the way, that's exactly where Samsung is launching the handset first in May...

When the face recognition feature was unveiled with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the last thing that we expected Samsung to do was introduce it onto a smartphone that costs one-fourth of the S8's retail price tag. However, as it turns out, that has indeed happened and the newly launched J7 Max can currently be unlocked with your face, if you wish so.
The J7 Max (recently launched in India only), which looks and feels suspiciously similar to the Galaxy J7 (2017), is the only phone in the J series at the moment to have face lock security but it wouldn't be surprising at all if Samsung decides to roll this out to some of the other mid-range devices as well via OTA updates. It is to be noted that the security offered by the face recognition software is far from perfect and certainly not very secure. Nevertheless, it's a fast and fun tool for unlocking your phone. It's nice to see some of Sammy's lower end devices getting some love as well.

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.

Wi-Fi Alliance has long been the site where upcoming phones and tablets have been leaked at during the certification process and this time, it was time for the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4 to make an appearance on the site for its Wi-Fi certification.
Granted that this isn't much of a leak since we already knew that the Tab S4 is coming, but its appearance on the site suggests that the tablet might not be as far away from release as was rumored previously. The tablet seen on the site is indeed the Tab S4 with model number SM-T835 and possibly a 10.5-inch QHD display at 16:10 ratio. Unfortunately, just like all previous tablets by Samsung, it will be powered by an outdated flagship chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. There will also be 4 GB of RAM onboard, backed by 64GB internal storage and a possible expansion slot for a micro-SD card. SamMobile suggests that the Galaxy Tab S4 could be making an appearance at the IFA in August - September 2018.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are out and about, so that leaves us looking forward to rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. While the release is still months away, that doesn't mean we have not been hearing rumors about it already. Today however, what we have for you is more than just a rumor, because it really is about the Galaxy Note 9, which has made yet another appearance on the Geekbench benchmarking app, confirming the previously seen CPU (Snapdragon 845) and OS (Android 8.1.0).
What is more revealing is the leak by famous Leakster Ice Universe which stated that the Note 9 will actually be 2mm shorter than the current gen Note 8. The shorter height means that the Note 9 will have less bezel than the Note 8 and that is to be expected, given that the S9 and S9+ already has smaller bezels than their predecessors as well.
The image you see here is actually a render supplied by the leakster himself and not an official one mind you. Nevertheless, it is more than likely that we will see something very close to this design when the Note 9 is launched in August.
Google just posted a new Android commercial on the Android official YouTube account. The new video is titled "Android: Friends Furever." The misspelling is intentional the video is a compilation unlikely animal friendships. A monkey and a dog, cat and ducklings, an elephant and a sheep, let's just say the video causes a cuteness overload.
This continues the "Be together. #NotTheSame" campaign that Google has been running since last year. Check the video below.
Google Play Services 7.3 is currently rolling-out with various bug fixes. If you've used Android Wear with your phone, you'd have noticed the annoying persistent notification that sits in your phone's notification drawer forever.
With this latest Google Play Services 7.3 update, Google has gotten rid of the notification. This means there isn't another notification sitting permanently in your notification drawer that you couldn't get rid of anymore.
The update also brings an updated UI for configuring Trusted Places, the feature that allows your phone to stay unlocked in a certain location. You can now choose on a map the location instead of simply typing it out and it shows the area with a blue dotted circle on the map that is the safe zone. The update also adds a new pull-to-refresh animation in the Google+ app.
If you don't want to wait for the update to hit your device, Download the Official APK below. To figure out the right version of Google Play Services for your Android device, go to Settings -> Apps -> Google Play services, and look at the last 3 numbers in the parentheses. You'll see something like -XYY where X is 0 for pre-Lollipop and both 4 and 7 for Lollipop+, and YY is a specific variant id. -738 means you need the APK that has -738 and so on.
Since the Smartphone term was created back in the early 2000's when we had colour touch screens, this was a whole new era of mobile phones. Since that day the manufacturers have not stopped producing a better version of mobile to beat the previous model. These all phones came with preinstalled functions, now call apps which is short for applications. When you bought a new phone back then, if that model was not installed with a certain app which another model or make had, it was tuff you could not get it!
That, however, is a completely different story today, if your friend has an app you don't, simply go to the store and download it. Not there then no problem, you can go online and download the APK file to then install on your mobile device. This is all so easy and second nature to us now but wasn't always the case.
Mobile Apps did not start appearing until about 2008. This is kind of another landmark in mobile history, it's a total game changer, now you are able to totally customise your mobile device and make it work better for you. In the last 10 years, we have seen hundreds of thousands of apps being released to buy or download for free. All the big manufactures of the mobile platforms have online virtual stores where you are able to visit for your specific device and just go shopping. To basically pimp your mobile to look and work exactly how you want it.
There are not only too many to mention available apps categorised into their sections of fun or usability like games, tools, music, utilities etc. This popularity has seen an explosion of many more app producers and developers than there used to be. Making choosing apps nowadays a bit of a gamble in the way is the app actually going to function and work? Whether it's any good and actually worth the data space on your device? This is only achievable really by personal trial and error, as the app reviews are mostly conflicting, some good reviews and some bad. It gets quite annoying, you think you have finally found that app you have been searching for, it's then either not working or it's filled with bugs and viruses.
So, begs a question, what makes a good app? As there are so many apps of differing nature, we tried to generalise this to what makes the solid base for a successful app. We think there are six main areas where the app needs to succeed.
1. Keep it simple, don't over complicate things. The best and popular apps only do one thing, and they do it well. This is why they succeed.
2. Make the app available to everyone, don't forget the minorities. Apps are not only for iPhone users.
3. Make the app sharable, able to network with friends. Best way to get people using your app is by personal recommendation.
4. Great functionality let the app do what the user wants, like watch a movie, play a video slot, organise their life or bake some bread.
5. Its name is very important, either something short and catchy or a play on words to match the functionality of the app. A name that is easy to remember and rolls off the tongue.
6. Make it free! Simple
If all apps stick to these simple six rules then we are in for a treat, obviously, they will have their own theme, style and functions. Why is it that some people think the more the complicated the better, not the case.
Wireless charging is pretty awesome but Unfortunately, it is slow and already starting to lag behind the latest wired charging speeds. Freescale wants to help bring things back closer to parity with new hardware that could allow you to wirelessly charge devices up to 3x faster.
The basic idea behind the speed increase is the same as with newer USB chargers, which can feed a higher voltage to your device, pushing about 14 watts of power instead of the traditional 5 watts. Freescale has developed new hardware that can push 15 watts of power wirelessly. The downside is that right now, it requires new hardware in both your smartphone and charging pad. So, you can't just get this going.
It should be noted that the Qi standard does actually support up to 120 watt charging, if the hardware can handle it. Freescale says that it will have chips and reference designs ready for Q1 2015. so, it seems likely that we'll be seeing fast wireless charging hardware sooner rather than later.
The Internet has changed the world radically in just a couple of decades. This process, most likely, is already irreversible. The tendency to the increased influence of the global network is evident. It changes our daily life, contacts, work, leisure, and all other areas. In this article, Vip-Writers.com will tell you about how has the Internet changed the world and how it affected the profession of a writer.
How has writing changed the world
People always understood the value of this invention. Many ancient civilizations explained the possibility of expressing their thoughts with divine intervention. Meanwhile, the writing appeared in Egypt many centuries ago and was the apotheosis of accumulated knowledge, which could no longer be stored in memory. For a long time, the writing was only a privilege of rich and noble people, and was hieroglyphic, expressed in symbols. Much later, in ancient Phenicia, literal writing was invented. This event produced a real breakthrough in history. Writing is greatly significant for the history of mankind because it has united the economic, social and cultural development, which are characteristic of civilization.
Today, modern technologies and the Internet are of the same great importance. Plagiarism checker is also a very useful tool by searchenginereports.net. The transition of society into a virtual environment forced modern writers to adapt. This led to changes in the literary style and form of publications. There are also new professions for writers on the net: bloggers, content writers, copywriters, etc...
New publication formats
Changes at the style level can be traced in cases where writers build the text in the form of a network blog that does not require a clear storyline and allows to create a documentary effect. Moreover, they note that the blog provides an opportunity to mystify the image of the author and thus opens up new opportunities in the writer-reader communicative sphere.
Today, the network blog or Live Journal for writers becomes a definite strategy for the artistic text construction: a draft or an assistant in creating the author's image.
For many writers the center of interest was directly connected to the social network: you can write on your facebook or twitter and your friends and followers can read a new poem in your news feed.
Many writers add multimedia into their texts - photos, pictures, audio and video files. Readers will be interested in this kind of interactive literature.
In addition, essays with hypertext become popular nowadays. A hypertext work is a collection of literary texts connected to each other by a network of hyperlinks. The reader himself chooses the route (that is, the sequence of hyperlinks), which he passes through the text. Depending on the chosen route, the plot of the work can change.
Direct communication with readers
Today it has become customary to talk about the unifying function of the Internet. The "Global Village" expression illustrates the best attitude to the network. The network completely leveled the distance - any information displayed on the Internet immediately becomes available to everyone in the world. Audio, video and text transfer technologies allow you to communicate with a person on the other side of the world as if he or she sits at the same table with you.
Twenty years ago, communication between the reader, writer, and critic took place mainly on the thick magazines and newspapers pages. It was necessary to make an effort and arrange the letter, then put it into an envelope, and reach the mailbox, which could not guarantee that your response would be published at all. Now, as technology changes over time, it has activated a huge number of readers and incorporated them into the process of interaction and co-creation with the author of the text.
The ability to leave a response at any time and from any place is due to a very important feature of the Internet, namely, unhindered access to information and publications, as well as the ability to publish something and get feedback from other readers. At the same time, very often high-quality texts collect many responses. Responses come in almost real time, which creates the effect of live communication.
On the Internet, the reader gets the opportunity not just to discuss his points of interest, but also to some extent influence the creative process itself. In recent years, the indirect type of co-creation has prevailed, when the reader makes specific suggestions to the writer to change some parts of the text through, ratings, comments, and "likes".
Self-promotion and self-marketing
On resources like Amazon, there is an opportunity for self-publishing, when the author plays the role of both a writer and an editor, and a PR manager. There has never been such an opportunity before.
According to Antony Jones, a Vip-Writer's literary critic, "in the 21st century, a writer must show and sell his or her art. This is not because of money saving, but due to the fact that there is a huge amount of entertainment and intellectual temptations that a person meets every day. To attract readers, the writer must represent his or her works personally."
Let's summarize what has been said. A few years ago, the Internet was perceived only as a territory where you can place any information without censorship, including artistic creation. Today the network has become quite a literary space, where the writer is given complete freedom of action, without any material expenses.
Now that we can bet on any sports we want (as long as it's not illegal in your country) via online sportsbooks, the choice can be quite confusing. There are so many of them to choose from, so how do we know which ones are actually good? If you are going to invest money and time into a hobby, it only makes sense that you look for the following must have attributes.
Compatibility with Multiple Operating Systems
The lines between fully fledged desktop grade operating systems such as Windows 10 or MacOS 10, and mobile Operating Systems like Android and iOS is slowly disappearing in terms of power and functionality. Therefore, the sportsbook site should be dynamic in nature, that is instead of offering a shrunk version of tits original website in a mobile package, it should be able to fit into any window size perfectly, irrespective of the OS.
It is important for a sports book to work flawlessly on phones and tablets because not many people sit in front of their computers all day to place sports bets anymore. they play their games, check their odds and place their bets on the go, in the office and while relaxing on the couch after a busy day.
Variety of Options
if you are really interested in a dedicated sportsbook which deals exclusively in only one kind of sport, it's your choice, but you are definitely missing out on the big picture here! Variety is important for a sportsbook to be worth your time, because it keeps your options open, lets you try your skills and luck in different types of settings and most importantly, it keeps the experience fresh and enjoyable.
The Establishment Must Have a Preceding Reputation
Check this William Hill Sportsbook Review on Odds USA, where they take an in-depth look at the prestigious British sportsbook and its online wing in particular. True to the reputation which the name of William Hill has carried for more than eight decades (since 1934), the betting establishment scores high in every department. Such is the nature of established sportsbooks in general; if they are worth your time, there's probably a prestigious history associated with them.
Bonus and Loyalty Points
The bonus is what welcomes new players with lucrative benefits. A good example would be when the betting site matches a new player's initial deposit in credit. However, it's the loyalty points which keeps gamblers coming back time and again. It's important to get rewarded every once in a while for the money you are spending, in order for the experience to remain enjoyable.
Last but not least, the sportsbook site should have 24/7 customer care service available to explain queries, clear confusions and solve issues for their members, if and when they pop up.
Every casino you come across online will tell you that it's the best mobile casino around! As that would of course be a massive fallacy, the real question is, how do you know which ones are really good and which ones do not have any authorization or even a badge for fair play practice? Well, we have already mentioned two things that are must haves in any online casino, but we are going to delve deeper into the whole things and check out additional factors which deem a mobile casino worthy of your registration!
They Should Have an App
The Play Store does not allow gambling applications on it, so most mobile casinos have their own app download link on the homepage itself. In absence of a dedicated mobile casino app, it is possible that the site isn't optimized for iPhones and Android smartphones, thus making them a poor choice, for players who play from their smartphones for the most part.
Alternately, the Site Could Have Dynamic Design
If a casino site has dynamic design, it means that the website will open on any decent smartphone or tablet, like it will on any decent PC or Mac. The whole idea behind dynamic web design is elimination of separate mobile and desktop sites, in favor of dynamic, visual - interactive design, which adapts to the screen on which it is being viewed.
In simpler words, these are the online casino websites, which are designed in a way that they do not even need a separate mobile app to be considered as ideal mobile casinos! The ease of using a dedicated mobile application is however, still considered to be a smoother and better route to take by many players, as far as mobile casinos are concerned.
Where Will You Find Legitimate, Authentic and Enjoyable Mobile Casinos?
A Google search can lead you to some pretty shady sites, because the results you will see are not handpicked, but auto generated and paid information, based on preset SEO criterions, privatizations, etc. The mobile casinos at MrCasinova.com On the other hand, are not auto generated, but handpicked from a long list of legitimate mobile casinos. Each casino listed on the website is authentic, practices fair play and has a wide range of casino games for the players to enjoy. Additionally all new players will enjoy excellent sign up bonuses on these casinos.
Finally, let's discuss a bit about safety, because whether you are playing on a mobile casino app, or a desktop casino app, as long as it's an online establishment, it has to guarantee safety and fair play first.
MGA, eCOGRA, GLI, Truste, DMCA, SUCURI, GPWA and other authority bodies that register and regulate online casinos should be mentioned at the bottom of the site's page. Unfortunately, having that badge alone is not enough, because you still don't know whether that's just a fake claim or not. To verify, visit the registration and regulation authority websites which they have mentioned, and check to see if the mobile casino is indeed registered with them or not. If the claim is false, delete the cookies and blacklist it immediately!
The first video makes fun of the difficulties Apple had with the live stream it was supposed to be sending out yesterday, during its new product introductions. The spoof shows the two genius bar workers, one who is pretending to talk as though he were a live feed breaking up. "You're in technology and you can't handle this?," the other genius bar worker says. Every one asked Apple the same question on Tuesday. Score one for Samsung.
In the second ad, the same two "genius bar" employees are watching what is obviously supposed to be yesterday's Apple iPhone 6 announcement. They rejoice in the introduction of the larger screened iPhones, until they come to the realization that other phones have larger screens (like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4).
The rest of the ads cover things like the Apple Watch, the S Pen, Multi Wimdows and battery life. We've embedded all six below for your viewing pleasure.
It has been the hot thing to make kill switches for phones recently. Carriers have been asked by government agencies to do it, states are passing laws to require it, Apple did it, and now Google is implementing it in Android 5.0, Lollipop will come with an opt-in "Factory Reset Protection" option that keeps a thief from being able to wipe your phone, making it a less appealing target in the first place.
If you activate this feature, your Google login will be required to factory reset the phone or tablet. Presumably this will also prevent factory resets through recovery-otherwise it would be pretty useless. A secure lock screen of some sort will be required for this feature as well. The feature will be built-in on all Android Lollipop.
The security patch for January 2017 has started to roll out to the Galaxy J2 Prime and the Galaxy Grand Lite. While it's only natural for the J2 Prime to receive the update as it was only released last November, it is both surprising and good to see that Samsung still remembers the Grand Lite which was released almost three years ago in 2014. However, an upgrade to Lollipop is not officially on the cards for the Grand Lite as it continues to run on the ancient Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS.
The firmware version containing the update for the J2 Prime is G532GDXU1AQA4, while the one for the Grand Lite is I9060CUBS0AQA1. If you have an old Samsung smartphone that you want to upgrade but an official upgrade from Samsung is highly unlikely, head over to our firmware section and find the right custom ROM for your particular handset model. The only thing is that we recommend taking a look at our tutorial at least once before attempting to flash any ROM updates.
