How to Perform a Soft Reset or Hard Reset Nokia Lumia in Any Terminal

By specs-phones | At 8:50 PM | Label : | 0 Comments
When we talk about Nokia Lumia keep in mind that there are situations where our phone can have problems and we have no choice but to Reset it. The terminals in Windows Phone, like other mobile operating systems, supports different levels of reset. Starting from a Soft Reset, with the help of implications the phone returns to the initial condition. Then we'll talk about the Hard Reset if the problem is more critical.

Windows Phone 8 is gaining a marvelous reputation as a very stable operating system for mobile phones. There are situation where it is still necessary to perform a Reset of the phone. Sometimes just because the phone stop responding (usually due to some application), or because the problem is more serious and you may have a corrupt software on the terminal or you just want to erase every-data from the phone.

1. Soft Reset
In this case when the phone is locked and does not respond to any action. Of course, the first thing is to make sure so just press the power button for several seconds to see if the phone performs an orderly shutdown. If the phone still does not respond, for phones with removable battery , just follow these steps (which I think we all have know already):

1. Open the terminal (removing the box as necessary)
2. Remove the battery to let the phone without power
3. Wait a few seconds for the phone fully discharged
4. Replace the battery and the corresponding case
5. Boot the phone normally

This is fine for phones with removable battery. But as we know, Nokia is making rug phones and they also become famous thanks to its polycarbonate body (for example, Nokia Lumia 920) and that is not easy to remove the battery. So for these phones, how do I do?
Don't worry we have a solution for this as well.

Nokia explains that there is a way and that is to simultaneously press the button on/off with the volume down button for about 10 seconds.

You will notice that the phone vibrates, and that's when we can release the buttons. The result is that the phone will reboot and will start as if it had been turned off. With this method, the information we have on the phone should not alerted.

2.Hard Reset

With the use of Hard Reset the phone back to its initial condition as when out of the box and make the boot the first time. That is why it is also known as the initial configuration reset or reset to factory settings.

During the process, reset of all data that the terminal occurs. Therefore, we can apply both when we have a problem with the phone software related suspect, or where you want to sell your phone to someone so you definitely want to erase your all data from it, Hard Reset will provide you a method to remove the information, and start settings to it's new staff from scratch.

The duration of hard reset is tied to the amount of information that you have on your phone. Therefore you've better to delete all photos, music and videos and even installed programs yourselves to reduce the time-period for hard reset itself.
The first method is the one that provides the Windows Phone itself As simple as going to Settings, then move to phone information, and clicking reset your phone.
The second method should apply to those terminals that are non-functional and therefore not allow to reach the indicated I or menu. So, we can only apply a method by combination of keys to try to solve the problem.

The method is different for Windows Phone 7.x than the Windows Phone 8.
Hard reset Windows Phone 7.x:
This method easily applies to Nokia Lumia 900, Lumia 800, Lumia 710 and Lumia 610. So, For this type of reset we will have to take two steps. We start with the phone off and keep pressed both buttons down volume, camera and finally the on/off button. After a few seconds the phone will vibrate.

At that moment the phone to vibrate, You've to keep pressing the buttons on/off and down the other two (volume down and camera) aboutfive seconds. The phone should boot back to the factory settings.

How to take screenshots in Samsung Galaxy Y

By specs-phones | At 9:13 AM | Label : | 0 Comments
This post is in particular reply to some people who are asking me if I know how to take screenshots in Samsung Galaxy Y. Honestly I did not know the answer at first so I did some fiddling with the combinations of the available buttons in the Galaxy Y and luckily I was able to discover the right combination. At first I tried the combination used for taking screenshots in Samsung Galaxy Ace which is the back and menu button combination but it did not work with the Galaxy Y. I also tried the back and power button combination used in the Galaxy Tab but it has no effect also.

Finally, the trick is to press the "Home key" and the power button quickly at the same time. If your combination is successful, you will hear the familiar click of the camera shutter and a notification "Screen captured. Saved as image file" will briefly display on the screen. Open up your gallery and a new folder named "Screen Capture" has been created automatically for you.
For the unfamiliar with the Samsung Galaxy Y keys, the "Home key" is located at the center below the screen. On its left is the "Menu Key" and to its right is the "Back Key". The Power Button is at the upper right side of the phone,

See actual screenshots below as proof.

How to set screen lock in Samsung Galaxy Y

By specs-phones | At 9:13 AM | Label : | 0 Comments
Setting screen lock is for the Samsung Galaxy Y or any touch screen phone and tablet is an essential thing needed to prevent accidental pressing of the screen and to secure the contents of your Android gadget from unwanted views and usage by other people.

1. Go to settings and press "Location and Security":

2. Press "Set screen lock"

3. Choose between "None", "Pattern", "PIN", and "Password" from the list. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will choose "PIN". For me this is the better way to lock the screen as the PIN can be typed easily and fast compared to password.

4. Enter your PIN and tap "Continue"

5. Confirm your PIN and press OK.

6. That's it. You now have a PIN for your Samsung Galaxy Y. To confirm if the PIN has been done correctly, press the power button to lock the screen then press it again to open. You should see similar to the screenshot below.

You can just repeat the process if you want to change your PIN or the method, either "None", "Pattern", or "Password".

Best Movie Player for Samsung Galaxy Y

By specs-phones | At 9:08 AM | Label : | 0 Comments
The built-in movie player for the Samsung Galaxy Y is only good for watching videos taken by its camera. If you want to view movies and videos downloaded or converted from DVD's, you will need to have a third party video player, which luckily is abundant into the Android market for free. At first I tried the Mobo Video Player which is so far very popular in terms of landing at the top of the heap when doing a search for video players in the Android market. Said app failed miserably in my Samsung Galaxy Y as it keeps on freezing and making me stop it using the task manager almost all of the time. I am just trying to play flv or flash files downloaded from youtube and it cannot play it decently without having to freeze first.

In my exasperation and disappointment with the Mobo Video Player, I downloaded the MX Video player and took it for a spin. Boy I was so surprised by the performance. It was so awesome. The MX player let me enjoyed the videos in a breeze without any hang-up. It was just so cool that I am highly recommending it to everyone who has a Samsung Galaxy device. I'm yet to try this with my Samsung Galaxy tab and I'll tell you guys how it performs with the Galaxy Y's bigger brother.

Use your Samsung Galaxy Y as Internet Access Point

By specs-phones | At 9:03 AM | Label : | 0 Comments

One of the cool features of the Samsung Galaxy Y that is not to be found in other and older Galaxy smartphones in its class is the ability to share it's 3G internet connection to other Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones. This feature is commonly found on higher end Samsung Galaxy tabletss and smartphones but it is a nice treat from Samsung to have it included in this entry level Android phone.
I had a previous post of similar topic in this blog but that one deals with the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Since the naming of the feature in the menu is vastly different from that of Samsung Galaxy Tab, I took the liberty to post this one specifically for the Samsung Galaxy Y.

Having a personal Wi-Fi hotspot in your possession wherever you go offers lots of convenience to people who prefer using their laptop in browsing the internet and reading and sending email, in the absence of Wi-Fi access points in their location or even at home without regular internet connection.
Once you activate the feature, other people can connect to your Samsung Galaxy Y and use its 3G internet connection to browse the Internet. The only downside of this feature is the maximum number of concurrent users which is set to 5 only.

To make sure that only people whom you authorize to connect will be able to use the service, you have the option to set WPA-PSK security in your device. meaning, you can set a passphrase or password which you can share with your users prior to connection just like in a dedicated Wi-Fi router/access point.
The procedure is very simple and outlined below:

1. Go to "Settings" and tap on "Wireless and Networks",

2. Tap on "Tethering and portable hotspot",

3. Tap to check the "Portable Wi-Fi Hostspot",

4. As soon as you see the "Portable Wi-Fi- hotspot AndroidAP7711 active" below the "Portable Wi-Fi hotpsot, you and your users can already connect to the Galaxy Y Access Point using your various devices but in this instance, the connection is "Open" and unsecured. What you have to do to enable security is tap on the "Configure Portable Wi-Fi hotspot" after which you will have the option of setting your own Network SSID or leave the default "AndroidAP7711". Click on "security" below the Network SSID and choose WPA2 PSK in the dropdown list. Input your password or passphrase and you're good to go.

By the way, before you do the above-mentioned things, make sure that your phone has enough load credits if you are on prepaid cellular service and that your network's APN is properly configured to browse over 3G. If you can browse the internet on your Galaxy Y prior to setting up the Access Point, then you will have no problem. If you cannot access the internet, check on your 'Mobile Networks Settings" and see if the "Use Packet Data" is checked or activated. This setting determines your phones capability to access the internet given enough load credits and proper APN configuration.

In my case, prior to doing these things, I subscribe first to a day's unlimited internet with my Mobile Network or cellular provider to enjoy unhampered browsing with my pals and family members.

Reviewv: Evernote Food (iOS & Android)

By specs-phones | At 8:38 AM | Label : , , | 0 Comments
Evernote has turned its rather obsessive hand to the world of food. The result is a fantastic way to log everything you eat and cook. So how does Evernote Food work? Building on the clever system already established by Evernote’s standard app, it allows foodies to build a personal reference book. Evernote Food is split into sections: my meals, retaurants, my cookbook and explore recipes. Of all the sections, the last is the most useful. It allows you to browse through a wide range of different recipes taken from across the web, copy them and save them into your cookbook. The restaurants section of the app is surprisingly complete. It works on location and ties in with Foursquare. Depending on where you are, nearby restaurants will be listed, along with the food on offer, prices and pictures.

The app allows you to sync with Facebook and Twitter to share recipes and restaurants. It also syncs with your Evernote account so you can get hold of your recipes elsewhere. As free apps go, Evernote Food is one of the best.

Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 dilengkapi dengan baterai berkekuatan 3.500 mAh, tahan sampe 26 Hari?

By specs-phones | At 8:11 PM | Label : | 0 Comments

Salah satu fitur menarik adalah fungsi »genuine battery detection”. Artinya, bila ponsel ini disematkan baterai bukan buatan Lenovo, maka ia tak akan berfungsi. Sebab, hanya baterai original yang bisa diterima.

Selain itu juga ada fitur USB on-the-go. Dengan fitur ini P770 bisa berfungsi sebagai charger untuk perangkat lain serta pengguna dapat berbagi file dan data dengan mudah dan terlindungi dengan software antivirus bawaan.
Lenovo melepas ponsel yang ditujukan untuk kalangan profesional ini seharga Rp 2,6 juta.
