Google removes Chrome browser feature for Android - to our detriment

If you buy an Android smartphone, you automatically get the Chrome browser from Google. A new version of this will be released shortly and will lose a practical function that will probably cost you data volume when surfing on the go. Google Chrome for Android loses Lite mode With version 100, the Chrome browser for Android devices has one function made easier. The Lite mode is supposed to ensure that you save data volume when surfing on the go. Exactly this function is probably no longer necessary, so Google removes it in the Android version of the browser. The feature was introduced in 2014 and will no longer be available as of March 29, 2022 . The company also gives a reason for removing the feature: In recent years we've seen mobile data costs drop in many countries, and we've delivered many improvements to Chrome to further minimize data usage and improve web page loading. Although Lite mode is being retired, we're still committed to helping Chrome load web pages q

Cool Mac App: Apple computer meets PlayStation and Xbox

A really cool app brings PlayStation or Xbox and Mac together. At least the game controllers of the game consoles mentioned can be used for a new purpose on the Apple computer. Why? If you want, you can now simply control the Mac with a controller – awesome. Macs used to come with a remote control, but that's long gone and was only of limited use. A PlayStation or Xbox controller, which is misused for this purpose, offers significantly more possibilities. So far, however, this was not possible, the controllers eke out their existence solely for controlling the game, both on the console and on the Mac. The new Mac app "Controlly" finally puts an end to this limitation. Controlly app: Use PlayStation and Xbox controllers as Mac remotes The developer "Hugo Lispector" is primarily realizing a personal dream. But now every user benefits from it. The game controller does not function but only as a mouse replacement. In this way, the various keys can be assigned di

Mobilcom-Debitel on the brink: Cell phone customers need to know that now

The popular mobile phone brand Mobilcom-Debitel is counted. The freenet group, which stands behind Mobilcom-Debitel, will stamp out the brand image, in the future there will only be freenet. This also changes something for customers of the mobile phone provider. Mobilcom-Debitel is over: freenet becomes a figurehead A small bang, but it makes the German mobile phone market sit up and take notice: freenet is going through with its plans to consolidate its own brands, the first "victim" of this development is Mobilcom-Debitel. The popular brand for mobile phone tariffs will be integrated into the freenet range over the coming weeks and months. One of the first steps will be the "adaptation of customer communication" (source: Horizon). That means: Customers are informed about the integration by their provider, customer letters such as invoices are adjusted. The changes for Mobilcom-Debitel customers are therefore more of a cosmetic nature. Among other things, freen

Why you should never say "yes" on the phone

If you get a call from an unknown number, you should never say the word "yes". Not only the consumer advice center warns of this, but also me personally. Because despite a lot of practice, I fell for one of the stitches again - and didn't even notice it. Cheaters on the phone want to hear a "yes". Everyone knows these calls. Companies you've never had contact with somehow find out the cell phone number and try to make us a great offer. We regularly warn against various numbers from dubious sources, where you should under no circumstances put the word "yes" in your mouth .

Poco M4 Pro presented

As promised, Poco has introduced the Poco M4 Pro. This is a pure 4G smartphone, so it doesn't offer 5G support. The 5G model has already been around for a few months, and now the manufacturer has pushed a 4G-only variant behind it. For whatever reason. And so there are also a few differences between the two models, which you can see from the following overview of the technical specifications: Poco M4 Pro specifications 6.43″ FullHD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, DCI-P3 color space, up to 1000 nits peak brightness Octa-Core MediaTek Helio G96 12nm processor (Dual 2.05GHz A76 + Hexa 2GHz A55 CPUs) with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU 6GB LPDDR4X RAM with 64GB / 128GB UFS 2.2 internal storage, 8GB LPDDR4X RAM with 128GB UFS 2.2 internal storage, expandable storage up to 1TB with microSD Android 11 with MIUI 13 Dual SIM (nano + nano + microSD) 64 MP main rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, 8 MP ultra wide angle camera with 118°, 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4

{Disarmed} Xiaomi also has an exclusive pin for the Mobile World Congress (and this is its story)

A tradition that comes from long. Within this mini-city that is the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ​​like every year, the MWC 2022 is loaded with pins. And Xiaomi has its own exclusive model. If you want to get hold of it you will have to go to Hall 3, stand 3D10. A pin that honors a mythical building Our director of devices already said it : "it is curious to see people exchanging pins to get them all, especially when they are executives all in suits ". And it is that the devotion to achieve them all, which is not easy at all and requires going through the fair to the last corner, is a very attractive challenge. As if it were about completing the Pokédex, hundreds of journalists and specialists run from stand to stand, from the reception to the most secluded boutiques, to get hold of them. The Xiaomi pin refers, as we can see in the header image, to La Carbonería. Sounds like nothing to you? Those who

OnePlus 10 Pro officially announced for Europe, launching in late March

OnePlus introduced the OnePlus 10 Pro in China back in January, but not outside of China yet. One reason for this is the software - OnePlus uses ColorOS 12 in China, so it didn't have to make too many changes to launch the phone in its home market. OnePlus has now announced that it will launch the OnePlus 10 Pro in India, Europe and North America starting in March. A launch date has not yet been set, but the phone is expected to make its debut in the second half of the month. What's interesting is that the smartphone will ship with OxygenOS 12.1, with the update hopefully bringing bug fixes from the OxygenOS 12 build. OnePlus also announced 2021 sales figures during the PK, noting that the company sold 11 million phones over the past year - a new record. The Nord series has sold 10 million units since its launch 18 months ago, with mid-range and entry-level devices accounting for a majority of OnePlus' global sales.

{Disarmed} Oppo breaks Xiaomi record: 240 W SuperVOOC fast charging technology for smartphones demonstrated

Oppo broke all fast charging records with the presentation of its 240W SuperVOOC technology. It is said to be able to fully charge a 4,500 mAh smartphone battery in just 9 minutes. The technology could find its way into future Oppo flagship smartphones. There were a few battery-related announcements at MWC 2022. Realme demonstrated its 150W fast charging technology and announced the GT Neo 3 smartphone that will support this technology. Oppo did the same, but for the first time the manufacturer breaks the 200 watt mark. Oppo introduced a new version of SuperVOOC charging technology that reaches up to 240W of power. According to Oppo, this is enough to charge a 4,500 mAh smartphone battery in less than ten minutes. While this proposition is very impressive, it is most likely a proof of concept and the technology is unlikely to be used in a commercially available smartphone any time soon. With the ability to charge a smartphone battery at 240 watts, Oppo is ahead of pretty muc

Nintendo is green with envy: Apple s switch alternative could look so beautiful

With the "Apple Arcade" games flat rate, Apple wants to be at the forefront of gaming. However, what is still missing is a real gaming handheld that underlines these ambitions. This is where a new design literally comes into play - nicer than the Nintendo Switch and not even as stupid. An iPhone 13 is certainly fast enough for any kind of mobile gaming, but you can easily handle a Nintendo Switch in terms of performance. However, it still remains primarily a smartphone, not a mobile game console . On the other hand, if you want to win the heart of gamers, you also have to deliver passable hardware. Apple Arcade Pro: Switch look out, here comes your challenger This is where the idea of ​​the "Apple Arcade Pro" comes in, conceived by the two Korean product designers Junwoo Kim and Joonho Sung (source: Junwoo Kim & Joonho Sung). At first glance, it still looks similar to a current iPhone, but it's the sophisticated details that make the difference in the e

Instagram boss speaks plain language: That s why there is no iPad app yet

Where is the Instagram app for the iPad? The popular photo network is still leaving its iPad users out in the rain. This is unlikely to change in the near future, as Instagram boss Adam Mosseri has now made clear. The justification makes you sit up and take notice. Things are not going well for Meta at the moment: Facebook is losing its appeal and loyalty, WhatsApp is struggling with declining user numbers and the expensive investments in the Metaverse have recently pushed the share price down considerably. After all, Mark Zuckerberg can still rely on Instagram, which has increasing user numbers. Despite the growth trajectory, Instagram isn't thinking of putting resources into an iPad app. Instagram app for the iPad is still a long way off Instagram boss Adam Mosseri recently made that clear. According to him, the target group on the iPad is simply too small . "Hopefully that will change at some point, but right now we're focusing on other things," Mosseri said on

OnePlus rejects Unified OS, global models appear with OxygenOS with strong reference to Stock Android

It was a bit of a surprise when OxygenOS 13 was announced a few days ago. It was actually assumed that OnePlus would rely on a unified OS as a merger of OxygenOS and ColorOS in the future. But nothing will come of it, at least internationally. OnePlus' future under the Oppo umbrella has largely been up in the air, but today OnePlus is finally offering some clarity. In a lengthy forum post, OnePlus' Pete Lau has announced that OxygenOS isn't going away and that plans to run OnePlus phones with a "unified" ColorOS and OxygenOS are no more to come. For months, it had been expected that OnePlus would further merge its experience with Oppo, resulting in a "unified" operating system that would essentially be a combination of OxygenOS and ColorOS, and would be used on both OnePlus and Oppo phones worldwide. Now those plans are thrown out the window. Pete Lau says Oppo and OnePlus will keep ColorOS and OxygenOS as separate experiences forking from the

Telekom, o2, Vodafone: 5G coverage in Germany is really that good

When it comes to the 5G network, consumers usually hear one superlative after the other from mobile phone providers. But what about the development and expansion promises made by Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica/o2? A comparison with the data from the Federal Network Agency provides information about this, which shows that all that glitters is not gold. Fifth generation mobile communications, called 5G, is one thing above all: significantly faster than 4G, both in terms of data transmission in both directions - important for private and commercial consumers - and in terms of latency - indispensable, especially for machine applications such as autonomous driving . The German network operators Telekom, Vodafone and o2 - 1&1 is not yet part of the squad - attach great importance to the expansion of their 5G network architecture. Telekom, Vodafone, o2: 5G expansion is progressing, but by no means everywhere But how about it? Telekom is the leader – according to its own statements a

Even the very first iPhone from 2007 was 100 euros more expensive in Germany at 399 euros than the price that is now given by an analyst for the iPhone SE 3. With the iPhone SE 3, everything should remain the same, at least on the outside. However, noticeable differ

Samsung has officially said goodbye to a true smartphone legend

Samsung finally says goodbye. A smartphone legend that is basically responsible for the fact that we now only use oversized smartphones will soon not be built at all. Indirectly, however, she lives on. Samsung stops production of Note smartphones Update from February 28th, 2022: Samsung's smartphone boss Roh Tae-moon has officially confirmed that the Note series will no longer be continued . It will be implemented in ultra smartphones in the future (source: Dailian). This ends an era, but the pen lives on in ultra smartphones.
