Fix Your Cracked/Broken Infinix Zero Screen For Free

Most of us have experienced that unfortunate moment when your phone slips out of your hand and the screen is smashed to pieces. Not only is it unsightly, it can make your phone impossible to use and to get a qualified technician to fix it is another great issue.

Good news for Infinix Zero 5 users as the free replacement offer is now at your doorstep. The offer is for only Infinix Zero 5. I believed this kindness will soon be extended to other model and also by other phone industries like Tecno mobile, Gionee, Itel and the likes, who partnered with Calcare for the care of any of their gadgets within and after the period of their Guarantee and Warranty period.



I came to this conclusion because the free replacement of Infinix 5 will be taking care of by CalCare in your locality.

The company states that when a customer accidentally breaks the screen of the device, you can get it fixed for free as long as it still falls within the six month warranty period, this is an impressive move because gets it fixed may cost nothing less than 15k.

Govern Your Identity on Facebook with Face Recognition Technology

Facebook is tearing down another wall as the company revealed a new feature that will automatically let users know when they appear in a photo or video, even if they weren’t actually tagged in the first place.


The feature was first announced in December but was fully integrated on February, 2018. Those who logged onto Facebook on Tuesday could attest to the fact that Facebook notifies them on their News Feed of the firm’s new facial recognition technology.

This new feature, which has rolled out to every user, will apply only to newly uploaded photos. And you will only receive a notification if the person uploading the pic makes it visible to you through their privacy settings. Notably, this tool will not roll out to Canada or the European Union, where Facebook faces much more intense backlash over its use of facial data.

If a picture featuring your face is uploaded, a dialogue box will appear. Then, you’ll have the option to tag yourself, message the user who posted it, notify Facebook that the face isn’t you, or report the pic for violating the site’s rules. Facebook says it will also now notify users if their photos are being used by another profile, a move that could cut down dramatically on imposter accounts.

For its part, Facebook is spinning the feature as one that gives users more control over their online privacy and content.

“We’ve thought about this as a really empowering feature,” Rob Sherman, Facebook’s head of privacy, told WIRED. “There may be photos that exist that you don’t know about.”

While it may be good for users to know what pictures of theirs are floating in cyberspace, there’s a major plus in it for Facebook, too. The more users trust the social media giant with their photos, the more they will upload and the more they will engage with the site. And more engagement means more money.

Official List Of The Infinix Smartphones That Will Receive Android 8 Oreo OTA Update

Android 8.0 Oreo is as comprehensive a version of Android as there has ever been, and it is as stable, feature-rich and functional as ever. Oreo very much strives to be the OS for everybody.

We have been watching out for Android 8 Oreo update from the infinix. As we know, the company has never relented in releasing updated versions for their smartphones. Now, InfinixMobility announced it in a thread at the Infinix XClub Forum by one of their Administrators (Eric-lisw) that the following Android devices will be getting Android oreo updates in India. If it gets to India, it will definitely get to Africa.

» Infinix Note 4 X572 32GB+3GB will be upgraded from Nougat to Oreo in April
» Infinix Note 4 Pro X571 will be upgraded from nougat to Oreo in May
» Infinix Zero 5 X603 will be upgraded to Oreo in August 2018.

In line with this announcement, the Infinix Note 4 X572 (32+2) will be the first to receive this update as early as next month. For those who don’t know what “32+2” means, it means the variant which has 32 GB ROM (internal storage) and 3 GB RAM. Since this seems to be a variant-specific update, not all Note 4s might be eligible for this update. Whether or not this will be the case, only time will tell.

How to Prepare for This OTA UpdateIf you own one of these models, then here are some tips to help you prepare for this update:

  • Take note of your phone’s present Build Number as this tells you which variant yours is in case it gets bricked during or after updating.
  • If you have rooted your phone, then ensure to unroot it because installing an OTA update on a rooted phone will most likely brick it
  • If you have flashed a custom recovery or modified any other partition like boot or system, then ensure to flash back that partition from a stock ROM / firmware for your Infinix phone‘s Build Number

12 Useful Things You Can Do With Your Smartphone Camera Aside of Snapping Pictures

A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs. Most camera phones also record video. The first camera phone was sold in 2000 in Japan, a J-Phone model, although some argue that the SCH-V200 and Kyocera VP-210 Visual Phone, both introduced months earlier in South Korea and Japan respectively, are the first camera phones. Read more on Wikipedia.

Taking or capture photographs is the most used feature of smartphones and lots of people think that’s where the use of the camera ends in a mobile phone.

Some people only snap pictures with their camera phone and they think that’s where the use of the camera ends in a mobile phone, not knowing that there are lots of amazing things only a camera embedded in a device can do. Here’s a list of 12 Useful Things You Can Do With Your Smartphone Camera Apart From Snapping Pictures.

1. Document Scanning
Have you been required to scan and send your document to companies, institutions, and any organization, probably for Job, or scholarship applications etc, through email or to be sent to the cloud. With your phone’s camera right there with you and with any document scanning app being installed on your smartphone, that means you can achieve that so easily. Instead of going to a cyber cafe or using a traditional scanner hardware, your phone’s camera can do that for you.



The apps that can see you through, having that your phone’s camera is intact are as follows: Evernote app and Scanbot app are meant for iOS users, while Google drive is for only Android users, and CamScanner for Android and iOS users.

Note: The scanned document can also be converted into editable text. Just check the detail here.

2. Play Augmented Reality Games
Augmented reality in phones has been around for some time now and tools like AR translation apps are great, but nobody ever seems to show you how to use the technology for fun. That shouldn’t stop you using your phone’s ability to play augmented reality games though – no matter where you are.


There are plenty of them about, like SpecTrek – the game where you search for virtual ghosts using a map and then shoot them down when you find them. Or there’s Zombies, Run! where you have to get from A to B on a map, avoiding those pesky flesh eaters en route.

A word of warning: be very careful about running around and shooting at things in a city filled with real people, as you might get some funny looks, especially if you’re old enough to know better.

 Another augmented reality game is Droid Shooting. Turn any real-life boring background into a real life shooting fest as you deal with waves upon waves of droids that will come and attack you. Droid Shooting utilizes your phone’s camera and makes it a viewfinder or HUD (Heads-up-display) for the battlefield. You will also find a radar at your disposal, so you’ll always know where those vicious droids plan to attack.

The game entertaining you as if the whole thing is real. Enjoy the game as your phone’s camera delivers the service.

3. Barcode Scanner

Your phone’s camera can be used to scan barcodes in order to get the information written on it, Since anything programmed into it, is always not visible for the naked eyes to see, but can only be known through the use of any barcode scanner app controlled by the camera. If you are using WhatsApp web on your PC, you must have come across the point where you will be asked to scan your barcode, in order for you to access and use your Whatsapp chat on PC.


You can also find a barcorde scanner in UC browsers. So, whenever you have any multiple lines of marks just in the form of several straight lines together, just use your barcode scanner app or UC Browser to scan the lines. Note, once you are scanning the camera will be active at work.

4. Language Translator
With your phone’s camera, you can be able to translate the language in the form of text and symbol that seems to appear strange to you. And you can achieve that with your phone’s camera and with the help of Google translator app for is meant for all Android and iOS devices. The translation works this way;


Once you have the Google translator installed on your device, probably Android smartphones or iOS devices. And you come across any language in the form of text or symbol which was written in anywhere, maybe on the wall, sign board, paper or book. Just launch the Google app translator and click the camera icon in the app. Now, your camera should start scanning while you place it where you want it to scan and translate probably the text. Then, the Google app while translating the text uses optical character recognition (OCR) to automatically interpret what you want to translate. That’s it, although it is not perfect but trust me, it will surprise you. This can be very easier than the Google translator that requires you to type in your text before it can interpret it.

5. Look to the Stars
While few of us can ever boast to be blessed with the same sort of abilities as Brian Cox or Sir Patrick Moore, we can still revel in all that the stars have to offer from the comfort of our own homes (or gardens, anyway) thanks to apps like Star Chart and Google SkyMap.


Using AR, they allow you to point your phone skywards at night and get a fascinating overview of all those little lights. SkyMap gives you the names of stars and tells you where to point your phone to see certain planets. You’ll feel like a Greek god in no time.

6. Use in Visual Search
With your mobile phone camera, you can be able to search Google with pictures or images, instead of going by typing text. This can be educational and fun catching. There are several search apps that can allow you to snap a picture using your phone’s camera and after that, they enable the picture to be used in searching on Google search instead of text.  For example, you might snap a device probably, a handset or laptop and search it on Google. The result of the search engine would be on the available details/information of the snapped product. Also, you snap a photo of a tourist attraction, and search it, the result will be out displaying the center for the tourist, location, and much more related information.

7. Solving Mathematics Problems
If you are the type of student that find it difficult to understand or solve math problems, you can make use of your phone camera to perform the wonders with the help of an app called “Photomath”.


The app is good for students to use when solving any related math problem. You can as well go for it.

8. Serve as Mirror


This is common, use of phone camera especially among the female folks. You see them constantly checking their face and makeups using their phone camera. Isn’t it?

9. Serve as a Security Component
Do you have an old camera phone that you are not using anymore? Do you have more than one camera devices? The truth is, you can use your phone camera for surveillance and security purposes just like CCTV

10. Check Electronic Remote Control

Another important use of your phone Camera is to check if a remote control is functioning. To do this, just let the remote control of your TV, DVD or decoder etc, face your camera, then press any button on the remote controller and you will see a dull red light blinking as you press the keys. This is made possible because the camera lens detects infrared beams which remote controllers makes use of. So before concluding that your remote battery is dead or the remote is faulty, use your camera to run a simple test.

11. Educational Purpose
Are you the type that is lazy in writing not in the lecture hall, you can as well use your camera to snap all your friends note. Have you done this before? Many people into this already. Students always go for things that makes life simpler and easier for them.

12. Detecting Hidden Camera
Hope you know that there are hidden CCTV spy cameras in some many hotel rooms? You can simply use your phone camera to figure out the particular spot and where the camera is mounted especially in dark rooms. Just take a shot in a dark room, if the picture shows signs of rays of light, then there’s a camera in the room. This is not just applicable to hotel rooms only, but any other dark place with surveillance camera.

What You Need to Know About GTBank’s GTCoins

You might have received a notification shortly after making a successful transaction on GTBank 737 telling you the balance of your GTCoins. Then, you begin to wonder, is GTBank also launching a Coin?


GTBank is not launching a Coin but it has created GTCoins as a way to reward customers after carrying out some selected transactions on their GTBank account.

What is GTCoins?
GTCoins are points that you earn as a GTBank customer when you carry out financial transactions using the bank’s e-channels, such as 737, our Mobile banking applications and Internet Banking. You also earn GTCoins when you open a new account, reactivate a dormant account or set up a standing instruction for your Child’s SKS account.

The bank noted that GTCoins cannot be converted to cash or transferred to a third party, it can only be used to redeem deals offered by the bank.

How to Earn GTCoins rewards
You earn GTCoins when you:

  • Buy airtime via 737, Internet Banking or Mobile Banking (5 GTCoins).
  • Transfer funds to another bank via 737, Internet Banking or Mobile Banking (5 GTCoins).
  • Bill payment on 737, Internet Banking and Mobile Banking (5 GTCoins).
  • Naira MasterCard on any POS terminal in Nigeria or website (5 GTCoins).
  • Standing Instruction on SKS account (10 GTCoins).
  • Fund a newly opened or dormant account (10 GTCoins).

You also lose GTCoins when you withdraw cash using other Banks’ ATMs.

How to use GTCoins
GTCoins cannot withdraw as cash, you only use it to load airtime directly to your phone, and it supports all network providers in Nigeria and probably other country. Before you can redeem your coin you need up to 200coins/points to load N1000 airtime. Though these might look so small but far better than when there was no reward attachment.

How to check your GTCoins Balance
There are two methods of checking your points, it can be checked through the internet banking using a browser or using 737 service code.

First Method: Using 737
It’s very easy and simple just as you normally check your balance, dial *737*99#, then choose 3 to check points and 4 to Redeem your points.

Second Method: Using Internet Banking
Launch your browser and type in the address bar http://www.gtbank.com and log in to your account.


On the left hand side you see My Accounts & GTCoins, scroll down and click on Redeem GTCoins. You will see your coins highlighted in the first box with your coin and you can also redeem your code if you have up enough coin.

You can also check the statement of your GTreward or summary of your GTReward points, by click on the GTCoins Statement from your internet banking Dashboard.

Note: Using this service is free, no extra charge

GTBank don’t need to persuade customers again like before when you enter the bank hall, they ask you what you want to do so that they can refer you to the 737 table, but now you do it willingly because of the reward attached, nice marketing strategy.

The more you use GTBank e-channels for your transactions, the more GTCoins you earn.
