Almost every week, we heard about new technology coming to the mobile phone industry but mobile chargers are usually the least-focused area of these manufacturers. While we are still a long way off batteries that can survive more than a day without a need to re-charge, we do have the next best thing - super fast charging. Now Vivo has announced super flash charge 120W charging technology that can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery cell in just 13 minutes. Yesterday, Vivo uploaded a video on the Weibo page that demonstrates super flash charge in action without providing much detail of the full charge cycle. In the video, the charging went from 10 to 14 percent battery in just 16 seconds.
So far we have seen Xiaomi 100w charging technology in March but it hasn't reached to the consumer market even after three months. OnePlus 7 Pro's warp has a fast charging speed but Vivo's super flash charge is really insane. But it does rise a question about its impact on the battery life in the long run. Vivo may unveil its super flash charging technology at MWC Shanghai next week with its first 5G enabled smartphone. The competitors may make claim about its negative effect on the battery but that's what we have to see.
The other concern about the heating problem. With xiamoi's charger we have seen this problem. How Vivo manage the over-heating issue, and will this kind of charger can sustain for a long period of time? So far, the fastest charger available is with Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition which fully charge a 3,400mAh battery in 35 minutes.
Nokia's first Android tablet, Nokia N1, is doing well in China. Nokia N1 went on sale in China today, and the Finnish company exhausted the initial batch of 20,000 units in record time. It only took 4 minutes and 2 seconds to go through all that inventory. It's important to mention that the Tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
It looks like Nokia chose to go the flash sale route, perhaps inspired by Xiaomi's success with this model. The next opportunity to buy the N1 will come on January 15th, if you're in China of course. Otherwise, you will have to wait longer as the N1 isn't yet available anywhere else.
We live busy lives. There's rarely a chance to properly relax. But when you find you've got ten minutes spare, and you're sick of checking Twitter and Facebook, try a quick game on your smartphone. Here's a selection of fun games including strategy, sport and puzzles that you can play when you haven't got a lot of time spare.
You'll know the classic game, no doubt, but this is a re-imagination of it for the smartphone generation. Some things haven't changed - random blocks drop down the screen and you have to align them to form solid blocks that then disappear scoring you points. But in Tetris Blitz, you've only got two minutes per game to score as many points as possible. This is a fun and fast-paced twist on the original classic and can be played when your spare time is limited.
Flick Soccer is a simple and addictive game that sees players race against the clock to kick goals, hit targets or score points in other ways. The smart and effective swipe recognition offers great functionality, allowing the user to control trajectory and giving the player a more immersive experience.
Feeling like a quick ten-minute puzzle? Then, look no further than Dots, a game you're likely to become engrossed in as you try to quickly line up identically-colored dots. Draw a line through your dots to gather them all up, and earn bonuses by closing the loops. Each round is decided by either time or a number of moves, with your gathered dots used to gain power-ups for future games. If you've got a friend, you can challenge them to pass-and-play.
Okay, you might think it takes hours to win the big money in poker and that's probably true. But you can play for free via countless apps, some geared around real-money gambling, some made for those who just want to play for fun. With play-money apps like Appeak Poker, you can play a quick game of sit and go Texas hold'em without worrying about risking your hard-earned cash or clock-watching. There are also games like Politaire - a combination of poker and solitaire - which you can play in ten minutes too.
Not only are slot games fun, but you can also pocket some handy cash too. There are plenty of slots available on mobile devices that are easily accessible and convenient when you've only got a short space of time to play. Reliable operators also offer new customers bonus money with Android and iOS users able to access hundreds of different slots games to ensure there's often something new to enjoy.
In today's fast-moving world, our lives are so busy we get little time to relax. So if you get a few minutes to yourself, make sure you use them wisely. These great smartphone games are a good way to switch off for a few minutes when you're tired of scrolling through your social media channels.
