Is Chinese phone like Huawei is a new samsung?

Admit it ? you thought about switching to a Huawei smartphone, didn’t you? There is nothing to be ashamed of that since there are more and more people who are dipping their toes into researching about Huawei. Not to mention, the whole tech world is starting to think that Samsung has some serious competition, in the form of the one and only Huawei Mate 20. So, is Huawei a new Samsung or has the tech scene gone made?

What makes Huawei a new Samsung?

As you might know, the feature that separated Samsung from other manufacturers was the willingness to innovate which, then, made Samsung the number one smartphone company. Fortunate for Huawei, it looked up to Samsung’s “mindset” and decided to be an innovator as well.

So, what can we expect from Huawei and what makes Huawei a new Samsung? Well, a couple of things:

– AI-enabled smartphones,

– foldable smartphones (which are announced for 2019!),

– AR glasses,

– development of the company’s streaming platform Huawei Music.

The biggest thing that made us think that Huawei can finally reach the number one place was the announcement stated in October this year considering Huawei Mate Pro 20. In this announcement, Huawei came out with some fantastic features, such as:

– three rear Leica cameras, one of them being 40-megapixel,

– front camera of 24-megapixel,

– a battery of 4,200mAh,

– RAM 6GB and 8GB and storage of 128/256GB (expandable) and

– Kirin 980 processor.

New Android P Brings “Digital Wellbeing” Initiative to your Smartphone

A couple of weeks ago we had a chance to welcome new Android release – Android P. Even if it’s a Beta release we can see some of most of the essential features and updates of the new operating system. Since you probably already know all about major Android P news, we will not bother you with the feature descriptions or reviews. Instead, we will talk about “Digital Wellbeing” initiative and how Android P address it.

What features of Android P will help us take better care of ourselves?

It is quite impressive that “Digital Wellbeing” initiative is not presented with a single feature or set of options under one mode. It is built in the operating system on a much deeper level. Thanks to this type of implementation, we now have different options that will help us learn how to use our phones more smartly.

Android Dashboard

One of the significant improvements that you will find in Android P is Android Dashboard. By opening this app, you will be able to see exactly how you use your phone. All the relevant information will be placed here.

Information such as the number of times you turned on your phone, time you spend using it, the time you have spend in a particular app. On top of simple monitoring, you will also be able to make a step further and provide limitations for your app usage. We can already see such an example in the latest release of YouTube app. The option “Remind me to take a break” will turn the app for you after 15, or 30 minutes, depending on your setup. It is an excellent way to prevent yourself from procrastinating by watching endless cat-related videos while you should have been something else.

Do Not Disturb Mode

“Do not Disturb” mode is not a new thing, but the way it works now is. When you decide to be off-grid your phone will help you disappear completely. You will be out of the reach, except for starred contacts who are trying to call you.

“Do not Disturb” mode will make all notifications go away. They will not appear on display, always on screen, and not even in the app drawer. Notification will appear later when you’re out of the DND mode.

Of course, if someone needs to reach you, you will receive a call, but only from your favorite contacts. This setup may be changed in later releases.

Wind Down feature

Another handy thing that will help you get some rest is “Wind Down” feature. It is similar to Apple’s “Bedtime” option, but instead of just changing the amount of light on your display and stopping notifications on lock screen, “Wind Down” takes all the colors away and starts “Do not Disturb” mode.

When you start “Wind Down” the display of your phone will go grayscale, and you will be out of reach thanks to DND mode. This feature can come in handy when you try to get some good night sleep or when you want to focus on some productive tasks.
