Battery Guru already passed few major updates in the past and brought nice features to the users, coming from wider range of the devices support, over health estimation to the app design it self. Today we are announcing new features that users requested since early beginnings. Since Battery Guru was more dedicated to charging related features this request was just one entry on TO-DO list. Now it's time to work on it and make even more satisfied users.
Discharging history will be dedicated for all the past battery discharging sessions including all events happened at that time. Idea for this is having a list of expandable cards, when collapsed, card will contain next elements:
When card is expanded it will contain next elements:
For now this seems as enough information rich feature, if you have any more idea, want to suggest some nice addition and also a telegram user, write a suggestion into a Telegram Group.
Re-calibrate the app
This feature will let you re-calibrate app at any time, reason for re-calibration is obvious, wrong data shown or some failure in general. This usually happens with the users who tend to use custom kernels. After flashing it, device starts to report wrong polarity or even different battery capacity as users reported. Why to reinstall app and lose all the history when you can simply recalibrate it. This function will stop the current app service and pass you to the application intro (thing you see first time after installing the app) where you can do recalibration.
For any suggestion, idea or bug report you can join Telegram Group.
Ulefone is well-known for making rugged smartphones, and the Armor 11T 5G definitely belongs in that category. The company announced this phone not long ago, and it now decided to show how tough it is. The Ulefone Armor 11T 5G durability test video surfaced on YouTube.
The Ulefone Armor 11T 5G proves its toughness in a video durability test…well, a series of them
This video has a duration of around two minutes, and it shows you a number of durability tests, actually. The first one shows a phone being dropped from 3 meters of height. The phone handled it just fine.
The device didn’t get damaged during a 10-meter drop across 50 stairs either. That’s a rather unusual scenario that probably won’t happen, but still, it’s nice to see that the phone can handle it.
Even when the device got dropped into dirty water used for painting the walls, it was just fine after being cleaned. The following test showed the phone being frozen at -18 degrees Celsius. It spent 15 hours in the freezer.
The company even decided to put the Armor 11T 5G into some concrete, just to prove a point. When the phone got released from concrete, it was just fine.
Ulefone even allowed a person to stand on the devices
To finish things off, Ulefone placed two Armor 11T 5G devices next to each other, and allowed a person to step on them. It demonstrated that they worked fine while the person was standing on them.
It is noted during the duration of the entire video that people shouldn’t try this at home. That goes for all tests shown in the video. While the phone can withstand all of this, Ulefone doesn’t really guarantee anything and recommends you not to try it.
The Ulefone Armor 11T 5G sure is a tough device. If you’re interested in this rugged smartphone, you can get it from AliExpress for $499.99. Tap the link down below for more information, while the durability test video is embedded below as well.
OnePlus has confirmed that OxygenOS is not going away. As many of you know, OnePlus’ CEO announced that the company will “further integrate” with OPPO. He shared that information a couple of days ago.
Following the news, many users were worried that OxygenOS will cease to exist, and that ColorOS will take over. The OxygenOS 12 beta build did not inspire much hope either.
OxygenOS is not going away following OnePlus’ merger with OPPO
Well, you can rest easy, as OxygenOS is staying put. Pete Lau confirmed the information to MySmartPrice, as the site reached out for clarification. Pete Lau once again said that OnePlus will continue to operate as an independent brand, and will keep developing OxygenOS for its devices.
This is applicable for all markets other than China, of course. In China, OnePlus is using an OS called “HydrogenOS”. That is also OnePlus’ operating system, but it’s different than OxygenOS.
That is basically everything that was shared by the source. Pete Lau just wanted everyone to be clear that OnePlus, and its software, are not going anywhere. The two companies will work closely together, but that’s nothing new.
The two companies have been sharing resources for a long time
OPPO and OnePlus have been sharing resources for a long time now. After all, both companies are owned by the same company, BBK Electronics. The same goes for Vivo, actually, in case you didn’t know.
They’ve been inspiring each other for a long time now. This news only makes things official, in a way. Pete Lau said that this integration will allow OnePlus to get access to even more resources, though.
In his blog post, Pete Lau promised that such integration will help OnePlus provide faster updates, and also more stable ones at the same time. The company was already quite fast when it comes to updates, so this does sound quite promising.
Just to be clear, OnePlus as a brand is not going anywhere, nor will it cease to exist in any way.
Chinese display maker Visionox has just showcased a new smartphone display with an under-display camera (UDC). The new InV see Pro display touts improved pixel arrangement around the camera sensor for better clarity. It also promises less fogging on the camera underneath the display, allowing for clearer pictures.
The post on Weibo also shows a prototype smartphone featuring the same Visionox InV see Pro display. Previous reports suggest the second-gen Visionox UDC panel could debut on a ZTE phone. So the prototype seen in this post could be that phone. ZTE is expected to launch its second smartphone with an under-display camera later this year. Unfortunately, the Weibo post doesn’t reveal any other information about either the upcoming ZTE phone or the new Visionox panel (via).
Visionox showcases its second-gen under-display camera tech
In September last year, ZTE launched the world’s first smartphone with an under-display camera, the ZTE Axon 20 5G. The device featured Visionox’s first-gen UDC tech. Soon after the new phone went on sale globally, the Chinese company started teasing its second-gen phone with an under-display camera. It gave us a sneak peek at a concept phone featuring the upgraded UDC tech earlier in February. Now we have our first real look at the new panel.
Previous reports suggest that the new display will feature a higher pixel density on the area above the camera. In fact, the pixel density has been reportedly doubled from 200ppi to 400ppi. ZTE is also said to be considering increasing the display refresh rate from 90Hz to 120Hz. This suggests the new phone will be a more premium offering than the Axon 20 5G.The original model didn’t really impress the public, so the company would be wary of where it needs to improve. There was a very obvious visual difference in the display around the camera from the rest of the screen. This was probably due to a lower pixel density in that area. So the upgraded Visionox InV see Pro display, which reportedly has twice the pixel density as the first-gen panel, should fix that problem. The front-facing camera also offered rather disappointing results. Hopefully, Visionox and ZTE have addressed this issue as well.
It’s unclear when ZTE plans to launch its second-gen smartphone with an under-display camera. Previous reports suggest a launch sometime in the third quarter of the year. In that case, we should soon start hearing more about the upcoming device. We will keep you updated as and when more information emerges.
The very first OnePlus Nord CE 5G update has arrived. This update is marked as OxygenOS 184.108.40.206, and it brings both display and camera improvements to the table.
First OnePlus Nord CE 5G update focus on camera and display improvements
Do note that the changelog for the update is quite short, though. There are only four entries included here. Let’s talk about the camera first, shall we. The update improves the portrait photography of the selfie camera, it is said.
This update also improves the accuracy of screen color on the OnePlus Nord CE 5G’s display. OnePlus also says that it “fixed known issues and improved stability” of the OS here.
This update also boosts the security aspect here. It brings a new Android security patch, a security patch for May 2021. Granted, that’s not the latest security patch, as the one for June already launched, but it’s close enough.
More updates are expected to follow in the coming weeks / months
You can expect more updates to roll out to this phone in the coming months. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G was announced earlier this month, well, about a week ago, actually. So, it’s a brand new smartphone.
OnePlus is obviously trying to fine-tune things following its launch, to provide users with the best experience possible. The company does that with pretty much all of its devices as soon as they launch.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G is a budget smartphone from the company. It is fueled by the Snapdragon 750G SoC, and it comes in several RAM and storage variants. It has three cameras on the back, and one on the front.
The phone does include a 90Hz fullHD+ AMOLED display, two SIM card slots, and it even supports 30W fast wired charging. Wireless charging is not offered here.
All in all, this phone does have a lot to offer for the asking price, that’s for sure, and updates are always welcomed, as long as they improve user experience.
