Tecno dominates with 200 models on the list

By Jeph Ajobaju, Editor-in-Chief

Tecno was launched in Nigeria in 2006, the year it was manufactured by Chinese Tecno Mobile, is the market leader in approved handsets in Africa’s most populous country, according to the latest official list of 1,843 models approved.

Tecno devices alone make up 200 on the list of handsets certified and approved for use by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The handsets, of different makes and models, are those that the NCC has tested and found to comply with regulatory standards.

The NCC approved 1,653 models in April 2021, meaning the regulator has since approved 190 more.

Chinese mobile phone makers dominate in terms of approved devices, with Tecno brands being followed by Huawei and ZTE.

Nigeria is a lucrative market for mobile phone manufacturers around the world, with over 197 million active mobile subscriptions as of February 2022, and still counting in a population of 206 million, many of whom have two or more lines each.

Counterfeit or substandard phones affect the quality of service users get and also pose a health risk. Regulatory approval ensures that phones and devices meet quality standards.

Despite efforts, however, thousands of unapproved phone brands are still being sold in the country.

Unapproved phones are in most cases of inferior quality or counterfeit, but they sell faster than approved phones because they are cheaper.

NCC warning against unapproved phones

NCC Executive Vice-Chairman Umar Danbatta recently warned Nigerians not to buy phones that are not certified by the regulator, according to a report by Nairametry.

“The threat of counterfeit and substandard handsets has taken on a global dimension and requires a great deal of consumer education and collaboration with other government agencies to address it,” he said.

“Cases of influx and patronage of counterfeit handsets are more prevalent in developing countries, such as Nigeria, where importers import substandard phones without going through the regulatory approval process to certify that these devices are suitable at the market”.

Nokia, BlackBerry, Palm — We should stop trying to revive dead phone brands https://cellphoneblockerjammer.com/nokia-blackberry-palm-we-should-stop-trying-to-revive-dead-phone-brands/ Thu, 17 Mar 2022 13:03:01 +0000 https://cellphoneblockerjammer.com/nokia-blackberry-palm-we-should-stop-trying-to-revive-dead-phone-brands/ The old is the new new.

The old is the new new. This is an adage that has proven itself in several industries. Fashion, for example, always comes full circle. Volkswagen’s revival of the classic camper van is another example of the enduring appeal of certain ideas. But an idea is not representative of a brand as a whole.

A brand is the sum of its successes and failures.

A brand is made up of many ideas, some successful, some failed, and some past their sell-by date. The tech industry, for all its push into the future, has time and again tried to revive brands that are dying, dead or well past their glory days. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet found a single example where this really worked.

The most recent example of a failed attempt to revive a brand is Onward Mobility’s affair with BlackBerry. The company announced plans to rebuild BlackBerry in 2020. Two years later, there’s no phone in sight, and Onward Mobility has closed its doors. Nor is he the first to make this attempt.

To go back in time: Dead or alive? This is what happens with BlackBerry

BlackBerry, for young people here, is famous for having released “an Apple” when the iPhone was only a dream. The Canadian manufacturer has built its business around the BlackBerry Messenger service. The chat application, launched in 2005, allowed users to share texts, photos, voice notes and even make calls. If it sounds a bit like iMessage, you’re not mistaken.

BlackBerry Messenger was the glue that kept users glued to BlackBerry phones.

Like iMessage and iPhones, BBM was exclusive to BlackBerry users until 2013. The chat service helped BlackBerry gain and, more importantly, retain millions of users. Of course, that advantage was quickly squandered when the company took too long to transition to the modern BlackBerry 10 platform. In a world of iPhones and Android devices, the older BlackBerry operating system n didn’t stand a chance despite the company’s last ditch efforts to extend BBM to Android and iOS.

When BlackBerry’s parent company Research In Motion finally decided to shut down, it spun off the brand name to TCL, Optiemus Infracom and others. Unfortunately, these companies failed to realize that BlackBerry’s real appeal lay in the then-unique chat service, as well as a form factor designed around communication.

Although a few attempts were made to bring back keyboard-driven design, it was simply too late. Android-based tracker phones were entirely devoid of the BlackBerry soul, and with the company having completely disabled chat services for consumers, these phones were BlackBerry devices in name only. The failure was obvious.

The gimmicky Palm companion device had nothing to do with Palm’s heritage as the creator of the modern smartphone interface.

It’s the same story with Palm. Palm’s heritage lies in the wide range of personal digital assistants it has developed. Founded in 1992, the company defined what a smartphone should be and paved the way for modern interfaces when it launched WebOS in 2009. The Palm Pre debuted that year and introduced the world’s first multitasking smartphone. in the world. Its legacy lives on in the map and swipe-based interfaces we’re so used to on iPhones and Android devices these days.

Like BlackBerry, Palm has also gone through a few hands. HP took over the name in 2010 but soon sold it to TCL following the spectacular failure of the WebOS-based TouchPad tablet. And again, TCL hasn’t acknowledged what makes Palm special.

Palm Phone Review

Palm’s attempted revival was a bite-sized, crowd-funded smartphone that played on the company’s name. The, ahem, palm-sized phone was designed as a companion for larger phones. In fact, at launch it could only be used when paired with a second device. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the market size for such a product is miniscule at best. This plan to revitalize a business-focused brand as a palm-sized accessory was dead in the water before it launched. It’s been radio silence since 2019.

Our opinion: Palm Phone review: just buy a smartphone

Time and time again it has been proven that it is nearly impossible to resurrect a brand solely on the merit of its name. The refreshed BlackBerry and Palm had little to do with the original devices and what made them great. While it’s obvious that the new owners are playing on nostalgia, the BlackBerry or Palm brands have never really been about hardware.

Instead, apps and accompanying services have been the selling point. By 2016, BlackBerry Messenger was no longer relevant enough to be a selling point for potential BlackBerry users. Meanwhile, the newest Palm phone was just a generic compact phone designed for a market that didn’t exist.

HMD Global Nokia C2 2nd Edition corner in hand

Eric Zeman / Android Authority

It may not have set the flagship world on fire, but cookie-cutter budget phones with a light dash of Nokia magic are a valid business strategy. It might not be the Nokia everyone wanted, and it certainly isn’t the Nokia we were promised, but the company still delivers well-built and reasonably reliable hardware. I can live with that.

The Nokia 8110 4G.

That said, it’s not a strategy that needs the Nokia brand behind it. The only “Nokia thing” about the reinvention is a litany of feature phones mimicking past designs. HMD completely failed to capitalize on the original brand’s use of interesting materials, innovative designs, groundbreaking features, and cutting-edge cameras.

HMD’s struggles with flagships and updates have not helped Nokia’s brand legacy.

In fact, aside from feature phones, HMD’s Nokia is just a steady stream of generic Android hardware. It may have taken a little longer, but I’m sure HMD could have achieved its mediocre success without the need for the Nokia brand. Going further, it wouldn’t be unfair to say that HMD’s struggles with flagship hardware and software updates have done the legacy of the Nokia brand a disservice.

Our opinion: Five years later, HMD Global’s handling of Nokia is a story of wasted potential

Making a smartphone is hard, and nostalgia can only get you so far. Building a business tied to the legendary legacy of a former giant can only work when brands recognize what made these phones so successful. Tapping on a popular brand name on a generic Android smartphone can be a low hanging fruit, but it’s also the easiest way to kill off a brand’s legacy – something we’ve seen time and time again. times. A brand revival can only work if it fills a gap in the market. More often than not, brands cease to exist precisely because they no longer serve any purpose, which makes a return even more difficult.

Maybe it’s time to let dead brands stay dead instead of destroying their legacy in the name of an easy grab on the cash.

Chinese phone brands carry the torch for Europe’s biggest mobile show https://cellphoneblockerjammer.com/chinese-phone-brands-carry-the-torch-for-europes-biggest-mobile-show/ Sun, 27 Feb 2022 15:00:00 +0000 https://cellphoneblockerjammer.com/chinese-phone-brands-carry-the-torch-for-europes-biggest-mobile-show/ Next week, Mobile World Congress returns to Barcelona, ​​two years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the world’s largest mobile phone show, and a year after the show went ahead without the presence of many of its biggest exhibitors.

Next week, Mobile World Congress returns to Barcelona, ​​two years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the world’s largest mobile phone show, and a year after the show went ahead without the presence of many of its biggest exhibitors. Not everyone is returning to this year’s in-person event (Sony, Lenovo, and select media outlets including The edge are not present) but it almost feels like the show is back in full force.

But it’s also an event that will show exactly how much the smartphone industry has changed in recent years. As it stands, all of the show’s biggest hardware announcements seem to come from Chinese brands like Oppo, Honor, TCL, Xiaomi sub-brand Poco, and Huawei, rather than brands from Europe. America or even from another Asian country like South Korea. .

Honor, for example, plans to announce the Magic 4 series at the show, marking its first Western flagship smartphone launch since its split from former parent company Huawei. Although the company launched the mid-range Honor 50 globally last year, the Magic 4 is said to use Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, making it a direct (and likely affordable) competitor to the Galaxy S22. from Samsung or OnePlus. ten.

Meanwhile, Oppo announced plans to announce “several high-end flagships” alongside augmented reality and 5G “R&D achievements” at this year’s MWC. The company just announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Find X5 Pro, last Thursday, but still intends to use this year’s show to make some major announcements.

Or what about TCL, which says it plans to reveal more entries in its 30 series of smartphones after announcing the first two entries, the 30 XE 5G and 30 V5G, at CES earlier this year. . Or Poco, the Xiaomi sub-brand that plans to announce the Poco X4 Pro 5G and Poco M4 Pro at an event on February 28. Oppo’s spin-off Realme promises to announce the “the world’s fastest smartphone charging technologyat this year’s show, which for those keeping track should be faster than the 125W UltraDart technology announced a few years ago.

In contrast, major phone brands outside of China have rarely shown much interest in using MWC for big consumer announcements. Google has never launched a smartphone at MWC, and Apple takes the show as seriously as it takes every other major trade show, which is to say “not very”. But even Samsung, which used MWC to announce its flagship Galaxy S smartphone as recently as 2018, seems to be focusing its MWC launches this year on a humble laptop. Only HMD, the Finland-based company that now produces Nokia-branded smartphones, regularly timed its major product announcements with the Barcelona show.

MWC’s growing focus on Chinese companies doesn’t mean it’s losing relevance, as these phones are more popular than ever with customers around the world. As of last year, IDC reports that three of the world’s five most popular smartphone brands – Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo – are headquartered in China, with the top and two spots taken by Samsung and Apple. It’s a similar situation in Europe in particular, where Counterpoint Research reports that seven of the ten most popular smartphone brands are headquartered in China.

Instead, I think the trend is an interesting demonstration of who has the most to gain from having a big announcement coincide with a crowded trade show. It’s not companies like Samsung and Apple, which have the kind of global physical presence that allows them to hold big launches separately from big trade shows. But for a company like Honor or TCL, a show like MWC seems like an invaluable way to gather lots of press in one place to show off your wares.

News around MWC 2022 will almost certainly be dominated by Chinese tech brands, who are doing their best to keep the buzz going around Europe’s biggest mobile show. But the more you look at it, it starts to look like good logistics.

We were told that a BlackBerry 5G phone would be released in 2021. It would have taken a nice break from the waves of Samsung, Xiaomi, and Motorola that we review every year. It did not work.

We are not surprised. Original owner RIM ceased to be the force behind BlackBerry in 2016 when the name was licensed to Chinese tech giant TCL. TCL took a leaner approach but its reign ended in 2020 and then the brand moved to OnwardMobility, an American company.

Phone brands should always seek compatibility with networks available in Nepal. Before, 2G and 3G networks were not of great concern. But with the introduction of 4G with its extended functionality, we continue to hear several issues on smartphones like unsupported 4G band and VoLTE network.

This is why telephone operators work closely with telecom operators to ensure that their phones work on existing mobile networks. We even heard about the intervention of the NTA in this case. They could only allow importing phones that supported all bands and features available here in Nepal. But it looks like the rules haven’t been enforced as tightly as needed, as various brands of phones still don’t support all bands and VoLTE on Nepalese mobile networks.

This has prevented many smartphone users from accessing 4G and VoLTE services in Nepal. We can attribute this to the lack of coordination between the NTA, carrier networks and phone manufacturers. As a result, many smartphone users are in the dark about the compatibility of Band 20 4G or VoLTE on their smartphones.

This article here will familiarize you with vital information about Band 20 4G and supported brands in Nepal and the VoLTE ecosystem. Keep reading.

20 4G band for speed and coverage

LTE band 20 is a spectral frequency widely used for 4G mobile networks. Band 20 offers flexible solutions to operators to deploy faster speeds and good 4G coverage. In terms of frequency spectrum, LTE band 20 refers to 800 MHz, one of the main spectrum bands used by NTC for the 4G network in Nepal. Discover the NTC 4G bands.

With 20 band 4G network, an operator can provide very fast mobile broadband while covering a large area due to lower frequency. The lower the frequency, the better the propagation.

Which brands support the 20 4G band?

Previously, very few phone brands supported band 20 (800 MHz), which is one of the key bands in Nepal Telecom’s 4G network. Without its support, your Ntc sim will not get a good 4G signal in built-up areas, basements, elevators and remote areas. It is also possible that in some cases you may not get a 4G signal at all. Let’s discuss which brands support this 20 group.

Samsung seems to be comfortable supporting the 20 band 4G network on the majority of its phones in Nepal. Likewise, Xiaomi has steadily improved its support for this band as they want their 4G phones to work in all conditions. So it is very likely that all the latest Xiaomi smartphones have this support.

Apple iPhones also largely support this 4G band (800 MHz) on their hardware but were limited on the software side. But, with the launch of iOS 14.7, Apple worked with Nepal Telecom to make their phone compatible with the 20 4G band. Other brands that support the 20 band in almost all phones are Nokia and OnePlus.

Apart from these brands, there are only a few others that support the Band 20 4G. It also appears that Chinese phone maker Vivo has just started implementing this band of spectrum on its phones for Nepal.

Meanwhile, the fast-changing and fashionable Realme still doesn’t offer 20 4G band support on any of their phones. It seems they are bringing phones from India without even checking the existing 4G networks in Nepal. The same seems to be true for other Indian brands or brands that import phones from India.

Another Chinese phone maker Oppo is also on the same boat for its 800 MHz band support.

List of phone brands in Nepal that support Band 20 4G

Phone brand Support 20 4G band
Samsung Yes for almost all
Xiaomi Yes for the latest phones
Apple Yes for almost all
Nokia Yes for almost all
Oneplus Yes for almost all
Vivo Very little
True me Nothing
Oppo Nothing
Indian brands Nothing
Phones brought from abroad Couldn’t work for some
Phone brands in Nepal that support Band 20 4G

Besides the Band 20 4G, VoLTE has also been an elusive feature for many 4G users in Nepal. The unique technology makes voice calls possible over the 4G network. However, technology has only found a limited number of handsets to work on, leaving a lot to look forward to. What is VoLTE, how it is used and a list of its compatible devices can be found below.

VoLTE brings voice calls to 4G

VoLTE or Voice over LTE is a 4G based mobile technology that brings high definition voice calls over the fourth generation cellular network. 4G is a mobile broadband technology and does not have native support for calls. When a caller dials a 4G number, the smartphone connects to the 3G or 2G network to make calls.

View detailed information about Ntc VoLTE.

However, with VoLTE enabled on both the SIM card and the device, a user can make calls and enjoy broadband simultaneously. NTC has launched its VoLTE service to a large audience with support on select handsets. Gradually, the phone company is adding more and more phones to its carrier with the deployment of software patches.

Which brands support VoLTE in Nepal?

Likewise, for VoLTE, it appears that most phone brands have worked with telecom companies to support it. At present, only Nepal Telecom has over-the-air VoLTE network, and phone brands need to customize their phone software for over-the-air VoLTE network. For that, they meet to propose the update of the software and several tests to finally publish it.

Don’t miss: the main features of the VoLTE service; Instant call setup, video calls

Like the 20 band, Samsung is also comfortable in this regard as all of its new phones are VoLTE compatible from Nepal Telecom. Previously there were issues with VoLTE in Samsung phones which are already resolved. Likewise, Xiaomi also supports VoLTE in almost all of its phones, while phones powered by Mediatek have yet to get support. And Nokia also supports VoLTE in its Qualcomm-powered phones.

Apple iPhones now work well with Ntc VoLTE, thanks to the same update that brought Band 20 to premium phones as well. The latest brands supporting Ntc VoLTE are Oppo, Vivo, ZTE and Oneplus for a few selected devices.

List of brands of phones with VoLTE support

Phone brands Support for VOLTE
Samsung Yes for almost all
Xiaomi Yes for phones powered by Qualcomm
Apple Yes for almost all
Nokia Yes for phones powered by Qualcomm
Oneplus Only one for the moment (Oneplus Nord CE)
Vivo Very little
True me Nothing
Oppo Very little
Phones brought from abroad Will not work due to different software
Phone brands in Nepal with VoLTE support

After discussing all of the above in detail, we still might have missed a few smaller brands that support both 4G features. So, please tell us if your phone supports 20 4G band and VolTE in the comment below. This will help us collect more brand information for 4G functionality.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone SE 5G has the potential to attract more than a billion non-premium Android users, analysts at JP Morgan said on Monday. The company is expected to launch the iPhone SE with 5G capabilities in early 2022, according to media and brokerage, analysts adding that the model will allow Apple to target the mid-range smartphone market dominated by competitors such as Samsung. Electronics and Huawei. Technologies. The upcoming smartphone has the potential to attract nearly 1.4 billion low and mid-range Android phones and around 300 million users of older iPhone models, the brokerage firm estimated.

“Apple’s trade-in program for non-iPhones is certainly not as attractive as iPhone trade-in values, it could nonetheless lead to an average starting price range of $ 269 (around 20,400 Rs) to $ 399 (around Rs 30,200) for the iPhone SE 5G, which is still very competitive, ”said analyst Samik Chatterjee, who gave Refinitiv Eikon five stars for the accuracy of its estimate. The iPhone SE currently starts at $ 399, compared to $ 799 (around Rs. 60,600) for the iPhone 13 and $ 999 (around Rs 75,700) for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Since launching the iPhone 13 lineup and new iPads in September, Apple has struggled to address the global chip shortage and supply chain disruptions. Meanwhile, Apple shares have extended their march, with the company closing in on $ 3 trillion (roughly Rs 2.27.72.115 crore) in market capitalization.

In a separate note, JP Morgan said consumer demand for major upgrades like 5G models is expected to remain strong and also a priority for procurement, although it is declining for most hardware products, especially smartphones. , televisions and PCs. The brokerage raised its estimates for iPhone SE unit sales for fiscal 2022 to 30 million units and expectations of annual iPhone shipments to 250 million units, or 10 million more than ‘one year earlier.

JP Morgan raised its target price for Apple to a high of $ 210 (around Rs 15,900) from $ 180 (around Rs 13,600), according to Refinitiv Eikon.

The smartphone market is fiercely competitive and rapidly changing. Over the years since Apple introduced the iPhone, we’ve seen giants fall and new ones take their place even as Samsung and Apple continue their almost endless rivalry. Some of those names that have already faded into the background still evoke loving emotions in those who may be old enough to remember them. While the chances of them becoming themselves again, let alone their former glory, are nearly impossible now, there are still brands that we wish to continue doing business in the unique way they knew how.

BlackBerry – Productivity

The BlackBerry name is often immediately associated with two things: a physical QWERTY keyboard and office work. The former wasn’t just a trendy gadget and that’s what made the latter possible before the golden age of smartphones if there was a golden age. This input method, unfortunately, hasn’t aged well in the current design of touchscreen smartphones, but that doesn’t mean it’s not wanted, just that manufacturers haven’t given much thought to bringing both to life. worlds in harmony today.

BlackBerry was in fact in a better position than Samsung to compete with Apple at the ecosystem level. Its suite of services, including BlackBerry Messenger or BBM, could have been Android’s answer to iMessage, and its business-centric services would have been stars these days, especially during this pandemic. Unfortunately, BlackBerry was slow to accept that Android would be its way forward, and by the time it embraced Google’s platform, it was far too late.

Palm – WebOS

Even before there were smartphones, Palm devices were already doing things we take for granted today, at least when it comes to productivity tools and even some games. He wore a stylus long before the birth of the Galaxy Note and was even the original subject of the late Steve Jobs’ mockery. Before changing ownership, Palm even dared to challenge the duopoly of Android and iOS with its own operating system which, sadly, was perhaps ahead of its time.

WebOS still exists today, but almost entirely in name. While it’s understandable that Palm was determined to keep its identity, its name just wasn’t strong enough to sell the oddity that WebOS was at the time. There were certainly some great ideas that Android and iOS would eventually make their own. Almost ironically, the stylus never really went out of fashion, and the Palm Pilots of yore have been pretty much replaced by Samsung’s Galaxy Note line, which in turn could be replaced by future Galaxy S Ultra models.

LG – Innovation

LG was the last mobile industry giant to pull out of the smartphone market madness after almost years of trying to keep wolves out of the door. The writing was on the wall for several consecutive quarters, but it was still a sad sight to read the company’s announcement. It’s especially tragic when you consider the things LG was ready to do that big companies like Samsung didn’t even dare to do.

LG, for example, was one of the first to install the fingerprint reader on the back of phones, a trend that continued until recently. He was the first to offer a commercially available modular phone and was said to have been the first to market a roll-up phone. Unfortunately, this willingness to take risks could also have been his downfall, but we can not blame him for lacking imagination and daring.

The real Nokia – Variety

Nokia is still there too, but only in name, really. While HMD Global has done a tremendous job of making sure the brand lives on in an Android world, its name doesn’t have the same weight in the industry, not for very long. Its near-disastrous chapter in the partnership with Microsoft almost cemented Nokia’s image as a company that couldn’t adapt to change quickly enough.

Ironically, Nokia was both popular and known to have moved too quickly, flooding the mobile market with countless phones of various designs and confusing names. If anything, Nokia was famous for the variety it offered, especially when it came to design, even to the point of looking completely bonkers. Nowadays, however, taking such risks no longer makes commercial sense, which is why we end up with almost identical conceptions.
