Vivo Y71 Specification, Release date and Features

Vivo Y71 Specification, Release date and Features

The Chinese mobile giant Vivo has always been an advocate for Android device that cost less and does more. A big player in growing markets such as India and regions such as South America, Vivo has not been shy of trying the new, as it showcased at MWC this year with the concept Vivo Apex.

Continuing its crusade of offering all-rounder devices with the latest features and a low price-point, the company seems to be on its way to release the Vivo Y71 smartphone soon enough. The device has already passed its screening process through TENAA, and here’s everything you need to know about it.

Vivo Y71 specs and features

  • 720 x 1440 HD resolution (18:9 widescreen aspect ratio)
  • GSM/CDMA support with VoLTE feature enabled.
  • 99-inch TFT display screen
  • Quad-core 1.4GHz processor
  • 3 GB RAM capacity
  • 32 GB onboard expandable storage (128GB and 256GB)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo version
  • CMOS camera sensor with 1080p Full-HD resolution support
  • 3285mAh battery capacity

The new industry standard of offering a higher screen-to-body ratio is being picked up on the upcoming Vivo Y71 as well, as the specs sheet suggests that a 720p HD screen will come into play. Don’t expect the 5.99-inch display to break the visual barrier as it comes with an average TFT display, unlike the OLED panels we see on high-end smartphones.

Supporting the decent display will be a 1.4GHz processor, which will most likely be from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series. The device will come with about 32GB of internal storage which will be expandable via a MicroSD card slot, and 3GB of RAM with an internal battery capacity of 3285mAh should offer a decent amount of screen-on time as well.

However, the biggest takeaway from the specs seems to be the software, which will be Android 8.1 running right out of the box. As for the camera, don’t expect a dual-camera setup on the back, with just a single CMOS sensor-powered shooter that will be able to record videos in Full-HD. There are also details of the fact that the Vivo Y71 will be available in Rose Gold variant. 

Vivo Y71 price and release date

Since the device has just now been spotted on the TENAA certification website, the release should be expected soon enough. By an average estimate, you can expect the Vivo Y71 to officially launch most likely somewhere in April.

As for the price, it seems apparent from the specs sheet and features that the Vivo Y71 is going to be another mid-range device in the Android market. With the newer 18:9 aspect ratio screen and some decent hardware, the Y71 may be a direct competitor to devices like the >Xiaomi Redmi Y1, which is available at the $200 price mark.

How to fix reboot issue after update on any Android phone

How to fix reboot issue after update on any Android phone

Whether you’re talking about major upgrades or just the regulatory ones, software updates are the key to keeping your mobile device well-tuned. Not only do they bring new features and optimizations to your Android device, but also help fix the broken elements and keep the security side of things up to date.

However, sometimes a software update can seem to break more things than it fixes, which includes app crashes and random reboots. Fortunately, these issues are easy to fix and there are multiple things that you can try to resolve them. If you recently updated your Android device and are facing the reboot issue, here’s what you can do to about it.

Step 1: Restart the device aka Perform a soft reset

As simple as it sounds, sometimes rebooting your device and giving it fresh start can help fix most of the system issues.

  • Press and hold the Power button until the menu screen pops up.
  • Tap on the “Power off” button and wait for the device to turn off.
  • Once the device turns off, press and the Power button again to turn on the device.

Rebooting your Android device can help reset apps that may be causing the device to crash and restart. However, if this doesn’t work for you, move on to the next step.

Step 2: Reboot into Safe Mode

Third-party apps and even system apps are often the culprits behind random system crashing and abrupt reboots, so it just might be useful to make the most out of the Safe Mode settings.

  • Press and hold the Power button until the menu pops up.
  • Instead of tapping the Power button, press and hold until the Sleep Modemenu pops up.
  • When the device asks you to “Reboot into safe mode”, just hit the “OK” button.

The device will now reboot into Safe Mode, at which point all of the third-party apps will be unavailable for use. If the crashing and rebooting issue is solved, it is safe to assume that one of your recently installed apps is causing the issue. However, if the problem still persists, you might need to consider a hard reset.

Step 3: Reinstalling culprit apps

If it is an app that is behind the random rebooting issue on your Android device, the easiest way to fix it all is to reinstall the app itself with all of its recent updates.

  • Head over to the Settings app and scroll down to the find the Apps
  • Access the apps list to find the malfunctioning app press the Uninstall
  • For System apps like YouTube and Gmail, you can choose Uninstall Updates
  • Once the apps have been removed, press and hold the Power button to reboot your device.
  • After the device reboots, head over to Google Play Store and use the side-menu to open My apps & games
  • Press the Update button to install the latest updates for the system apps, and reinstall the third-party apps that you removed completely.

Any misbehaving app should now be taken care of, along with the rebooting issue. If you’re still riddled with the issue, there is a final option.

Step 4: Factory reset the device

There’s always a chance of residual system files that weren’t cleared during the software update to cause issues. The best way to get rid of any issues is to wipe the slate clean with a factory reset. Make sure that you have backed up all of your personal data before you proceed with this step.

  • From the home screen, head over to Settings – Backup & reset – Factory data reset – Reset device.
  • Confirm your action and wait as the device goes back into its factory settings and reboots.

The final solution is on the extreme side of things, but is almost guaranteed to work if none of the other steps help you patch up your phone. Be sure to let us know in the comments section if you know a better way to fix reboot issues after a software update.

Let us know whether you were able to fix the reboot issue on your device using the above methods or not? If not, do explain what is wrong with your phone in the comments section below, as we would try to help you out.

Meet The World’s First Smartphone With A Huge 16000mAh Battery

Meet The World’s First Smartphone With A Huge 16000mAh Battery

If autonomy is one of the aspects that you value most when selecting a smartphone, you will be happy to know the Energizer Power Max P16K Pro, the cell phone with the highest battery in the world.

It is the new terminal that Energizer, a brand specialized in resistant devices with great autonomy, has announced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This smartphone boasts a monstrous 16000 mAh battery, which is by far the most powerful in the world.

The Power Max P16K Pro has an IPS screen of 5.99 inches, with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. How could it be otherwise, the great capacity of the battery has taken its toll on what weight and dimensions are concerned: it has a thickness of about 15mm and a weight of about 350gm.

 To put it in perspective, the Galaxy S9 presents a thickness of 8.5mm and 163gm in weight, the Galaxy Note 8 8.6mm in thickness and 195gm in weight, and the iPhone X 7.7mm in thickness and 174gm.
The smartphone with the world’s largest battery mounts a MediaTek Helio P25 mid-range chipset with an eight-core CPU which is clocked at 2.5 GHz and Mali-G71 MP2 GPU, accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the operating system is Android 8.0 Oreo.

In the photographic section, we find four cameras, two main and two fronts. The dual rear camera system consists of two 13 and 16 MP sensors with dual LED flash, while in the front we have a 5 MP camera and another 13 MP for selfies. The equipment is completed with a fingerprint reader and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Taking into account the large capacity of the battery, this smartphone would be especially attractive to load other devices, but GSM Arena says that, unfortunately, the brand has confirmed that it cannot be used for this purpose. Of course, the good thing is that the battery gets fully charged in about 90 minutes

How teens use social messaging apps?
The bombardment of cell phones in the world makes teens own their individual devices. So, they download all the trendy social messaging apps on their phones and make profiles. They send and receive online and offline text messages to have the conversation with the online people. They further make audio and video calls once they have peers online and discuss with each other about their routine life. Moreover, they share media files such as photos and videos of their routine life on different social media platforms to get appreciation and formal comments from the friend online. However, all of these social media activities may seem very interesting and normal, but things become worse when the following factors pop-up on the social networking apps.

Online bullies are the people that always lurk towards the young kids, teens, and teens. They are the very soft target for them. They make teens their victims on instant messaging apps by sending text messages, inappropriate videos and racist phrases. The concept of online bullying is to humiliate someone just for the sake of fun and get entertained and release their mental frustration. They mostly get their hand on young and innocent teens that don’t respond back in the same fashion. Teens may suffer once bullied online with deep depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety and other mental disorders.

Cyber Stalkers
Stalkers are actually players; they play with the emotions of young kids and teens to the fullest. But they always operate in such way that teen’s fall in love with them. They approach the target on the social networking apps and send them text messages in a generous way and win the heart of teens. Once teens have the trust on them then commit to meet them in real life and once they did when they come to know they were living in dreams and mostly ditched by the partners.

Sexual Predators
They operate in groups and play with the young teens in groups for the sake of fun. They don’t have the heart they release their frustration on teens getting their trust online. They ask teens to have met at some parties and then abuse teens with drugs and rape them. In most of the cases, teens are killed after being raped by the number of unknown people.

Bad activities teens got form social media

Blind dates via dating apps 
Teens also use instant messengers as a dating site such as Tinder and Snapchat and others. They do bling dates for sexual hookups and make boyfriends online. They do premature sex with the online friends in real life.


The habits of texting with the online friends often turn into sexting while talking to the friend of the opposite gender.

Exposure towards Pornography 
The social networking apps are one of the biggest platforms where the carnal content has spread by the people. So, there are high possibilities that teens may get their eyes on the carnal content and become obsessed with it.

Protect teens from dark side of social media

You Need to Charge your Phone for 8hours Before First Use, See Reason

You Need to Charge your Phone for 8hours Before First Use, See Reason

You all might have experienced a common thing while buying a new smartphone. Smartphone vendors always advise us to charge the device for at least 24 hours before using it for the first time. Several time vendors say that you should fully charge your smartphone before using it for the first time.

This issue is quite controversial because there is not enough information about it and this is what turns this situation into a question: Myth or Reality? Well, the battery of our smartphone needs to be charged 8, 12 or 24 before using it for the first time. Why?

The battery of our smartphone used to have a kind of memory, the limit of this represents the limit of the battery. The first load is extremely important because it sets the battery limit. Early battery types like nickel cadmium had a ‘memory effect’ in which batteries maintain a certain capacity based on how they had been charged and discharged.

But, with modern lithium-ion batteries, most people believe that there is no such effect and the batteries are even more reliable. With Lithium-ion batteries, you don’t need to calibrate your smartphone by running the battery all the way down

Mobile sellers still recommend users to recharge their phone for 6-8 hours but that’s no longer needed. They simply want you to start with a full charge to get the best experience.

So, charging a smartphone for 6-8 hours before its first use turns out to be a completely false issue due to the advancement of technology.

Whatsapp Set to Add Video And Voice Calling Features To WhatsApp Web/Desktop

Whatsapp Set to Add Video And Voice Calling Features To WhatsApp Web/Desktop

If you use WhatsApp Web often and you miss video calls, you’re in luck: everything points to the company being able to implement both functions very soon. This is suggested by WABetaInfo, the portal specialized in anticipating the news of the instant messaging app, where they explain that the platform is currently working on it, so that voice and video calls could be available soon.

According to rumours, all this begins with the version of WhatsApp for iPad, which although not yet available, WABetaInfo points out that it will soon reach the market. The company of the Mark Zuckerberg wants the application version for the Apple tablet integrates voice calls. As this app is based on WhatsApp Web, it is safer than the function also to the browser version.

In addition to this, the analysis of the WhatsApp update code 0.2.8299 has hidden references that may suggest that there will also be support for video calls on WhatsApp Web. However, these references are very slight and are not too clear, so in this case, we will still have to wait to know if we can enjoy this functionality in WhatsApp for the computer. This also applies to the WhatsApp app for iPad.

Users of WhatsApp Web have long claimed these functions for the version of the application for the browser. And, although the platform has been improving, including in the latest update the private group chats and the Picture mode, the two main characteristics are still missing: voice calls and video calls.

At the moment there is no official confirmation from the company owned by Facebook, so we will have to wait with crossed fingers to make these forecasts come true.
