    How old is the phone, generally Li-ion batteries have a life of around 500 charges so if you phone is a few years old it may need a new battery.

    Maybe there's some background apps that drain your battery, verify that.

    Back in October 2009, T-Mobile released the very first pay-as-you-go Android smartphone in the UK priced at just £185. At this time this was big news since it enabled many consumers that were simply unable or unwilling to take out a contract to get their hands on a smartphone running the - at the time - new Android operating system from Google. Here at MoDaCo we credit the T-Mobile Pulse as being a kind of catalyst that started Android modding off in a big way. Whilst previous Android devices allowed users to tinker with the operating system and make changes, the high cost of the handsets meant that it was reserved really for the hardcore nerds and geeks of the world. The Pulse - a rebranded Huawei U8220 - put the world of Android into the hands of normal people who dipped their toes into the new and exciting world of Android and modding. Personally, I have a lot to owe to this little device and the community here. I made a lot of new friends, I gained a lot of valuable skills which I use some of them with my day job (thanks to all the tools needing Linux back them), and it grow my interest in smartphones and technology in general. 10 years later I'm still a user of Huawei devices with a P30 Pro, although sadly the days of modding are long gone due to locked bootloaders. So it's a good time to say happy 10th birthday to the T-Mobile Pulse / Huawei U8220!

    I've never had a go porting ROMs that way, I just know that the base & port ROMs have to the same android version & that you also have to modify the boot.img also. Due to the fact it's stuck on the powered by android screen, I believe the issue lies with boot.img / kernel side of things not loading. I actually did compile RR 5.8.5 from source a while ago (but have since removed the RR source code from my PC to free up space). Here is a copy of the build I did for you to try if you like RR-N-v5.8.5-20180716-p839v55-Unofficial.zip

    Regular readers will know that I love a good bargain and love a good freebie even more! Your phone is a great tool for getting free or discounted stuff when you're out and about, so here's some of our favourite apps and how you can use them to save money! If there's any we've missed but you use, let us know. Wuntu Wuntu is the loyalty application for Three customers. It has some great deals such as free Costa Coffees, discount food at Bella Italia and Cafe Rouge, free sweets and much more. Deals typically arrive at 8:30 am on a Wednesday, so you want to be checking the app then as some offers are limited in number. If you're not a Three customer, pick up a 3 PAYG SIM to get started. You can pick them up for 99p in most supermarkets or for free from the Three website. You'll need an unlocked or dual SIM phone to activate of course, but once you've set up the app, you can take the SIM back out. Since you're getting cool free stuff from 3, it might be nice to give a little back by topping up or using as your secondary network. O2 Priority O2's Priority is similar to Wuntu but it was 'the original' app of this type. As with Wuntu deals come and go, but the headline offer from Priority is a free Caffe Nero drink every Tuesday! As an added bonus, you still get a free loyalty stamp in the Nero app and even large size drinks are covered. Nice! The best offers tend to be around 'occasions' (chocolates for mothers day, for example) but it's worth having installed and checking in frequently. As with Wuntu, pick up a cheap SIM or get one free from the O2 website. Note that O2's policy has changed recently, and Priority can only be activated using SIM cards with credit, so it's going to cost you 10 quid to get up and running (that's the minimum top up). It's probably worth it though, you could make that back in less than a month in free coffees alone. Again, you'll need an unlocked or dual SIM phone and you don't need to keep the SIM in it post activation. Curve Now for something completely different. Curve is a debit card that aggregates all your other cards. It works like this - sign up to Curve, get your free card in the post, install the app, associate all your other cards and you're ready to go. You can spend out and about with the contactless card and choose which one it maps to instantly in the app. Paid for something on the wrong card? You can use the 'back in time' feature to change it post-payment. The app has a reward card built in where you can earn credit by spending at certain merchants or by referring friends. There are lots of other features such as purchase insights, instant card lock, super cheap currency exchange, fee free cash withdrawal from credit cards and much more. Google Pay support will be coming soon too, which will really make it amazing. I love Curve and use it all the time. You can order your free card via the Curve app and even better, if you use the referral code 'TBXZH' you'll get a free fiver on your reward card. Free money! Quidco Quidco is one of the two major 'cashback' players in the UK. If you ever buy anything online, you should always check Quidco and its rival TopCashback to see if cashback is available. The way it works is like this - you start at the cashback site, sign in, complete your purchase and then you receive a percentage of your purchase back as 'credit' (this varies per merchant and is listed on the cashback site). This can then be withdrawn when it reaches a certain threshold to your bank account or to gift vouchers for other merchants with a percentage bonus. It works really well and is absolutely a no-brainer, as you're going to earn money on things you'd be buying anyway! Sign up at the Quidco website and you'll earn £5 straight away, refer friends and family and you can earn free credit too. Quidco ClickSnap Quidco ClickSnap is a Quidco specific service designed for use in-store. It has its own app, but shares the account with the main Quidco site. ClickSnap works by showing you a list of offers at the main supermarkets. A recent one was 'get a free bar of Galaxy chocolate' for example. In order to redeem, you buy the item at the designated supermarket, snap a picture of the receipt, upload it in the app then the cost is returned to you as credit. This works particularly well as often the credited amount is more than what you actually paid (if, for example, the item was on a special offer), so you can get the goods and end up in profit! Sign up at the Quidco website in the same way as above. TopCashBack TopCashBack is a Quidco rival and works in exactly the same way. It has its own Clicksnap like service (although it doesn't have a dedicated app for this) and quite often offers differ between the two services - it's worth being signed up to both. Sign up at the TopCashBack website and try and remember to use it! Vouchercloud Now for something a little bit different. VoucherCloud is all about saving money, although the app does occasionally have freebies too. Codes are broken down into categories and also displayed on a map so you can spot local deals. Alerting functionality is available, although I've found this to be a bit of a battery drain. Vouchercloud is particularly good for discounts on restaurants, although you need to be careful as many deals don't apply at the weekend. There is also a 'competitions' section. Vouchercodes Vouchercodes works in exactly the same way as Vouchercloud, but has a slightly different set of deals, so if you're on the hunt for a bargain, it's worth having both installed. Caffè Nero As well as being included in the O2 Priority offer above, Caffe Nero have their own app. After installation you can get a free coffee straight away by entering the code 'WELCOMETONERO2018' and each time you buy a drink, you'll earn one stamp (10 gets you a free drink). Nero is particularly good as there are frequently offers and promotions for freebies or extra stamps, it seems to be the most generous of the coffee chains (and my favourite). Friends of Krispy Kreme Krispy Kreme donuts are the most ridiculously sweet, unhealthy and tasty donuts. Their app is particularly good for freebies too! Aside from offering very frequent discount promotions (e.g. 'buy a dozen original glazed get a dozen free' or this week 'get a free cold drink when you buy one if temperature is above 20 degrees'), after you enter your date of birth, anniversary, partner's and children's birthdays, you'll generally get a free donut on each of those occasions every year. Excellent! There are also occasional other giveaways such as free drinks. Calories ahoy! Greggs The Greggs app is surprisingly good for freebies. As with most chains it has a loyalty programme built in, but it also has very frequent free promotions - in recent months I've had Lucozade, coffee, crisps, donuts, all via in app notifications that a promotion is available to be redeemed. Healthy. :-) If you live near a Greggs (by the way, apparently there are 29 in Newcastle, how crazy is that?!), then it's worth an install. Unidays Despite the name, Unidays isn't just for university students, it's for all students. If you can validate your educational status with a school / college / uni email address, you can activate Unidays and receive discounts and promotions both online and in physical stores. The list of merchants is pretty extensive, so it's definitely worth doing, Student Beans Student Beans is very similar to Unidays but has a slightly different list of merchants, so it is worth installing both. Freebies are rare in these apps, but discounts are pretty healthy, particularly in the stores in which young people like to shop, so whether you're installing for yourself or for your kids, the app is worth having to hand, Airtime Rewards Airtime Rewards is a new concept which works because it's zero effort yet potentially saves a bit of money. Upon signup, the app will confirm which mobile network you are on, whether you are on a contract or PAYG and then link to your debit or credit cards. From then on, when you make purchases at certain retailers, you'll earn a percentage back which is then deducted from your phone bill. Pretty neat! The list of supported merchants is pretty small right now, but it's a bit of a no brainer given how easy it is to set up. Redeem code 'FWMLFWQW' to get 30p credit straight away. Worth nothing is that you can link your Curve to Airtime Rewards for double cashback! Groupon It's easy to discount Groupon as being useful simply because quite often the offers aren't that great compared to what you can get going direct. In reality however, there are always discount vouchers for Groupon floating around, such that I don't think I've ever paid full price! If I'm out and about with family visiting and I want to take them for a meal or an afternoon tea, Groupon rarely lets me down on the bargain front. Get started on the Groupon website. Google Opinion Rewards Google Opinion Rewards is a great way to earn free Google Play credit. After installation. the app will pop up optional surveys about places you've been, demographically relevant merchants etc. and after completing them, you will earn a small amount of play credit. The surveys are very easy, very short and non-intrusive - it's a great way to gradually build credit for your next Play Store purchase. Barclays Premier Rewards OK, so this isn't for everyone, but if you happen to bank with Barclays and your household income is eligible for a Barclays Premier Banking account, then consider switching and installing the app. Doing so will net you a host of benefits including a free Patisserie Valerie hot drink every day (!), free entry to English Heritage sites, discounts at a whole host of restaurants and much more. HotUKDeals I suspect nearly everybody is aware of HotUKDeals, but just in case, the site is an hot, UK based, deal aggregator, as the name suggests! It's dangerous, as there's plenty of scope for picking up 'bargains' that you don't really need, but if you're planning to buy something specific you can use its alerting functionality to let you know if a deal crops up. The app is pretty nice for browsing offers too. Google Pay Finally, Google Pay. While Google Pay won't really save you much money or offer you much in the way of freebies, it doesn't occasionally pop up a deal and is a winner when it comes to convenience if you a) have a NFC enabled phone and b) your bank is supported. One way you can earn is by referring friends - you'll both earn £20 credit when they sign up. Follow this link and enter code '' for your own signup bonus. Zeek Zeek is a really cool site for buying and selling gift cards. From a bargain hunting perspective it's most of interest for buying cards and the discounts can be considerable. As an added bonus, you can save further on Zeek cards by going via TopCashback! Even better, when you sign up using this link you'll get £5 back from them when you make your first purchase!

    Unihertz, purveyors of the small but actually rather cool 'Jelly Pro' Android phone are back with a new and improved model on Kickstarter. The Atom takes the core concept of the Jelly (it's tiny) and adds a much larger battery (fixing the core complaint of its predecessor) and a degree of ruggedness that makes it perfect for the outdoors pursuits where the Jelly was so useful. Billed as 'the world's smallest rugged 4G Smartphone', the Atom can be purchased in a $219 basic package or a $249 'All in One' set which adds a clip, armband and bike mount. So the Atom is small, but how small? 96mm x 45mm x 18mm. Properly petite. Despite this, it doesn't skimp on features. The processor is TBC (expect an octa-core Mediatek), but the diminutive case does cram in 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, dual nano-Sim cards, a 2.45" 240x432 screen, a host of sensors including GPS, gyro and a fingerprint this time round, USB-C connectivity, dual band Wi-Fi, a FM radio and that 2000mAh battery, more than double the size of the battery in the Jelly, where stamina was the primarily complaint. Everything runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and surprisingly, Unihertz have a fairly good record on updates (the Jelly is currently on Nougat with an Oreo 8.1 build incoming). The device's ruggedness is courtesy of its IP68 rating and rubberised shell. I think it's a nice looking little thing, with a bright red programmable key on the side and red accents on each corner. The pessimistic £37,000 target of the crowdfunding campaign has been smashed with the fundraising currently at £660,000! Want in? Head on over to Kickstarter to sign up (I have!). View full item

    A good photo needs an interesting subject, but the photo's composition is equally important. This principle can easily be observed when two people take a photo of the same subject at the same location: their photos will often look completely different. This tutorial walks you through some of the key composition rules used by professional photographers to take striking photos. Armed with these tricks, you'll soon be taking jaw-dropping shots with your smartphone. The Basics The Rule of Thirds If you do a web search for the keywords "photography" and "composition", you'll churn up page after page of results featuring titles such as 9 Top Photography Composition Rules You Need To Know, 20 Composition Techniques That Will Improve Your Photos, or 18 Composition Rules For Photos That Shine. However, many of these articles are riddled with unfamiliar concepts and technical jargon that can prove overwhelming for beginners. This article takes a different approach, focusing on some more fundamental rules of composition that are easily mastered, such as the rule of thirds, the golden ratio, and the Fibonacci spiral. Novice photographers tend to position their subjects in the center of the frame, which makes them stand out, but results in a less visually-appealing photo. If this applies to your photos, you may want to try applying the rule of thirds. To use the rule of thirds, take your frame and overlay a nine-block grid (dividing the vertical and horizontal space into three parts). Important elements in the photo should be aligned with one (or more) of the four intersection points in the grid. Studies show that these intersection points are where the human eye tends to go first, so placing important elements on these points can help emphasize the subject and produce photos that are more visually appealing. The Golden Ratio The golden ratio is a similar technique that can be used to draw the viewer's glance. This technique uses a famous mathematical ratio to draw a nine-block grid with the unique, eye-pleasing proportions of 1:0.618:1. This type of grid is known as a phi grid. As with the rule of thirds, points of interest in the shot are lined up with intersection points in the grid to produce visually-harmonious, captivating images. By now, you are probably wondering which of these two grids you should be using. In fact, the difference between the two is quite subtle. Research shows that our eyes are drawn intuitively towards the four intersecting points in the rule of thirds grid, while the points of intersection in a phi grid can be harnessed to create more harmonious, aesthetically-pleasing photos. However, every picture is different, so there is no hard-and-fast rule about which guideline you should use. Advanced Composition Fibonacci Spiral The Fibonacci spiral is another camera overlay which is derived from the golden ratio. The subject is usually placed at the smallest part of the spiral, which guides the viewer around the image in a natural flow. The Fibonacci spiral is a useful tool for organizing and framing visual elements that expand outwards from the center of a photo. Configuring Assistive Grids Most experienced photographers know exactly how they will compose a shot before they press the shutter. Many of their photos conform to the rules of thirds or golden ratio even when they don't use a viewfinder overlay. Moreover, true masters of the art will deliberately break these rules of composition to achieve even more spectacular results. However, less experienced snappers may find that an assistive grid allows them to get more out of their camera. The HUAWEI P10 and P10 Plus feature built-in assistive grid support, allowing budding photographers to put these rules of composition to the test. To enable an assistive grid on the HUAWEI P10/P10 Plus, open Camera, swipe left on the screen to open the camera settings, and then touch Assistive grid. Select the type of grid you want to use, return to the viewfinder screen, and then start snapping away!

    In today's society, you think your family and friends are the people who know you the best. They are not. In fact, it is our phone that is the closest to us every day. So many of our information and secrets are stored on our phone. That's why when you lend your phone to others or share it around, you'll inevitably worry that your important information gets leaked or modified. You might not know that the multi-user mode on the Huawei Nova Plus is your phone's most trustworthy secret guardian. The multi-user function allocates separate storage to different users and isolate each user's data to protect your privacy. Even when different users share the same app, everybody's data is separated. This helpful function divides users into three different roles. Each phone can only have one owner and one guest, but you can create multiple sub users. Owner: the owner of the phone. Generally you will only log in as the owner when you are using your own phone. Sub user: Your close family or friends can log in as a sub user when they use your phone. After they log in, they can use most of the functions, except the functions that will influence the owner, such as factory reset and do-not-disturb. Guest: Guests have relatively limited access permissions. When a friend who is not that close to you borrows your phone, it is best for them to log in to your phone as a guest. After they log in, they are only allowed to carry out certain operations. They don't have access to messages and can't install unknown apps. Isn't it a very helpful feature? Now let's take a look at how to use this feature in detail. Touch Settings > Users to access the multi-user management screen. You can add, switch, and remove users and manage access permissions for each user. Add user Touch Add or Add guest and follow the onscreen instructions to add a sub user or guest. After you add a user, the user will appear on the unlock screen. The user on the unlock screen is the user that is currently logged in. Switch user Touch the user that you want to log in with, and touch Switch user in the displayed menu. You can also touch the user's profile picture on the unlock screen to log in. Allow calls and messages, and sharing of communication history When you log in as the owner, you can give access permissions to sub users and the guest. Touch the user that you want to give access permissions to, and touch Allow calls and messages, and sharing of communication history in the displayed menu. After granting the user permission, they will be allowed to make calls, send messages, and share call and message logs with the owner. If the owner has given access permission to more than one sub user, authorized sub users can also share their communication history. Note: The guest cannot send messages. Remove user Touch the user that you want to delete, and then touch Remove user in the displayed menu. The user's data will also be deleted when the user is removed. Don't you think this secret protector for your phone is awesome! You will never have to worry about embarrassing information leaks again. Grab your Huawei Nova Plus and give it a go!

    Use a file explorer like ES to browse to the root of your phone. The installed apk's should be in the data/app folder. It'll probably be called something other than "tasker.apk" so look out for the icon. Copy the apk to a folder accessible from your pc, e.g. downloads.
