AndroidPIT.com hit a significant milestone this week, reaching 200,000 enthusiasts on Facebook. It was only this right time this past year that people were celebrating 20,000 fans (look at how Kris’s hair has changed!) and how small a figure that appears now. But these numbers which please us so, are just the total consequence of our wonderful and devoted audience…. you guys.
The OnePlus X operates OnePlus’ Oxygen OS 2.1.2 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and it received two patches at that time I was reviewing it: one performance update for Oxygen OS 2.1.2 and another patch to fix SD card issues (which, incidentally, I didn’t encounter before or following the update). While this update-heavy attitude might be reflective of the OnePlus X being brand new simply, it could also indicate there have been a few problems that needed to be ironed out pronto.
Samsung has loaded up the Notice 3 with typical sensible feaures like Air Look at, Smart Air and Display screen Gesture to allow for touch-free controls. The G3 comes with the excellent Knock On and Knock Code security feature that provides 86,000 different combinations to access the full device (or Guest Mode with limited applications and access). The G3 has some motion-structured gesture controls as well, mostly simple things like lifting the phone to your ear canal to answer a call or flipping it to silence an incoming call. These features are simpler but probably more useful than Samsung’s more gimmicky ones.
One small drawback is that when the app collects a mixture incomplete and complete tracks, you finish up with duplicate entries, that have to be deleted manually. Also, the genre selection doesn’t always work flawlessly. For example, a Beatles monitor will land in the middle of a punk playlist occasionally. However, this isn’t always the app’s fault; often it is right down to inaccurate ID tags designated by the radio stations.
Kontalk is usually another WhatsApp lookalike that provides encryption. Unlike Telegram and Surespot, it doesn’t add multiple features to the core WhatsApp service. Kontalk, like WhatsApp, is slow to introduce brand-new features though, therefore there’s limited support for press attachments and no group chat function (but there is emojis). If you want a slim just, secure immediate messenger for one-to-one sending photos and chats, kontalk is an excellent option then. If you want more functionality though, keep an eye on it because Kontalk will become adding more features as time passes surely.
