The Nokia T20 tablet is Nokia’s second attempt in the Android tablet space. Taking a quick look at its offering shows it’s one of the tablets you may consider when in the market for tablets cheaper than the likes of the iPad and the Galaxy Tab. The highlights of this tab include a Unisoc T6010 processor, IP52 rating, Google’s kid’s space, and more.
10.4-inch IPS LCD, 1200 x 2000 Pixels, (~224 PPI )
Unisoc T610 Processor (12nm)
3GB / 4GB RAM
32GB / 64GB Built-in Storage
8MP Rear Camera
5MP Front Camera
Non-Removable 8200mAh Li-Po Battery
Design and Display
Tablet designs are very basic for the most part, which goes to say you probably won’t be able to tell the budget nature of the Nokia T20 by mere chassis examination.
What we have here, is a basic slab design with no bells and whistles. However, the slightly chunkier bezels on surround the display may be one thing you can use to differentiate the T20 from more premium tablet likes the likes of the iPad Pro 11 (2021)
Speaking on the display, we have a 10.4-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1200 x 2000 Pixels and a density of about 224 PPI. It isn’t anywhere near high-end, but it’s well enough to get stuff done.
Moving onto the rear. We find its rear camera module sitting in the top left corner and also the Nokia branding sitting in the middle position, making it know that it’s a Nokia Tablet.
Speaking on the build, the Nokia T20 tablet has a Sandblasted aluminum build, for the most part. However, we have hardened glass upfront, which is due to the presence of its display.
What’s more, Nokia took things up a notch, by having things in place to facilitate an IP52 rating for water and dust resistance. Please note that you shouldn’t expect the same measure of protection as you would get from something like the IP68. The T20 is only able to withstand a fairly small amount of dust and water spray. So I urge you to try your best to keep it out of harm’s way.
Accessory compatibility is one of the things tablet OEMs focus on these days, this is due to the demand to make tablets fit more productively into our lives.
Today we have the major players offering connector pins for keyboards that have gone as far as having trackpads and USB ports built into them. The case isn’t the same with the Nokia T20. It’s just bare bones.
Enthusiasts who would want to use a keyboard accessory will have to rely on Bluetooth keyboards, which may not be convenient for some.
What’s more, there isn’t a stylus support here, so graphics designers whose primary tool is the Stylus may have to look elsewhere or search for a third-party offering that works well.
Onboard the Nokia T20 Tablet’s are a set of basic cameras on both the front and rear panel. There isn’t anything spectacular here, as far as the specs sheet goes.
On the rear, we have a single 8MP camera capable of videos up to 1080p @ 30fps. While on the selfie side, we have a single 5MP camera.
The cameras are very far from being high-end, but they are enough to take of snapping documents, taking photos of cheerful moments e.t.c. All other extras you would need from a camera should be taken elsewhere.
Hardware and Software
The Nokia T20 tablet is governed by the Unisoc T610 processor. We also have the 3GB / 4GB RAM, 32GB / 64GB built-in storage and a massive a non-removable 8200mAh Li-Po battery.
Again the performance hardware isn’t high-end like the top dogs, but there is denying the fact that it’s capable hardware, which would let you scale through a ton of tasks.
On the software side. the Nokia T20 tablet runs its software on top of the Android 11 operating system.
Google’s Kids Space
Morally wise, the internet isn’t safe. The tendency of your ward encountering a vice content on the internet is very high and you certainly do not want that to happen as a diligent parent. Nokia understands this and has made efforts to employing Google’s kid’s space in its software.
Google’s Kids space, is a program that lets you create a safe space for your kids. With the program in place, you can create an environment you can control. It requires you to create an email profile and then move on to select the kind of content you want to make available to your kids.
The Nokia T20 Tablet features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-c port, low-energy Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi / Hotspot.
Internet connectivity is capped at 4G, which means you won’t be able to utilize 5G connectivity on this tablet.
Nokia T20 Tablet Price and Availability
The price of the Nokia T20 tablet starts around $232 which translates to about 95,322 Naira in Nigeria, 25,741 KSH in Kenya, and 1,408 GHC in Ghana.

The Tecno Camon 18 Premier takes displaces the Camon 17 Pro to become the new most premium smartphone in the Camon series. The highlights of the improved offerings guy will find within, includes a higher refresh rate, a higher processor, and more.
6.7inch AMOLED, 1080 x 2400 Pixels, (~393 PPI ), 120Hz Refresh Rate
Android 11, HIOS 8.0
Octa-Core MediaTek Helio G96 Processor (12nm)
256GB Built-in Storage
Fingerprint Sensor (Side-Mounted)
64MP + 8MP + 12MP
32MP Front Camera
33W Flash Charge
4750mAh Non-Removable Battery
Design and Display
The Tecno Camon 18 Premier has its main discrepancy on the rear, which goes to say having a quick look at only the front pane may have you thinking it isn’t really different from the Camon 17 Pro.
On the rear of this mobile phone, you will find a gradient colour system, which is nearly identical to what is seen on its predecessor. However, we have got a square-like camera module with bigger camera circles. This rear camera module also holds an LED flash.
Speaking on colors, the options available include polar night and vast sky, which could lead to a dilemma in the event that the enthusiast isn’t a fan of either of the colours.
Taking a trip to the front panel reveals a 6.7-inch display which is slightly smaller than the 6.7-inch display on the Camon 17 Pro.
This display bears a punch-hole in the top-middle position as seen on the former, we also have the same 1080 x 2460 resolution. However,
However, the display technology was bumped up from being an IPS LCD panel to being an AMOLED panel.
On the selfie side, we have a 32MP camera as opposed to the 48MP camera on the Camon 17 Pro. However, we have come to see that bigger pixels don’t necessarily equal better camera performance. This goes to say actual usage of the Camon 18 Premier may just show it’s a better performer.
Moving on to the rear camera department, we find a triple camera system as opposed to the quad-camera system on the Camon 17 Pro. This triple system does away with the depth camera we saw on the former. This isn’t a big deal in my opinion, as the function can be inculcated into another camera.
What’s left on the rear, is a 64MP camera with an aperture of f/1.6, an 8MP periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom, and an aperture of f/3.5, which is something we didn’t get on the Camon 17 Pro.
Still speaking of things we didn’t get on the former. Tecno has introduced a Gimbal OIS stability system, which is designed to help with the stability of videos and maybe photos. This technology is inculcated into its 12MP ultrawide camera.
Hardware and Software
The Tecno Camon 18 Premier takes hold of the Helio G96 in place of the Helio G95 on the Camon 17 Pro.
Moving on, we have the same 8GB RAM, 256GB built-in storage, Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. However, there isn’t a 128GB storage option as seen on the canon 17 pros, and also there is a drop in battery performance which saw a drop from being 5000 mAh to being 4750mAh here.
On the software, we have the HIOS 8.0 user interface running on the Android 11 operating system.
The Tecno Camon 18P offerings fall in between the standard Camon 18 and the Camon 18 Premier. The package being offered is slightly more premium compared to the Camon 18 and slightly less premium compared to the latter. Do well to read through this article for further clarification.
6.8-inch IPS LCD , 1080 x 2400 Pixels, (~395 PPI ), 120Hz Refresh Rate

48MP + 8MP + 12MP Triple Rear Camera
16MP Front Camera
33W Flash Charge
5000 mAh Non-Removable Battery
Design and Display
If you have seen the designs on the Tecno Camon 18 and 18 premiers, then you shouldn’t expect anything spectacular here, as they all share a similar design.
On the rear, we have what Tecno describes as a glossy mate splicing design, that combines a glossy and matte finish. This finish comes in three colours and they include Dusk Gray, Ceramic White, and Iris purple.
Sitting on the rear is an array of their cameras with an LED flash. You would also find the Tecno branding here, which helps indicate it’s a Tecno Smartphone.
Moving up front, we are greeted with a 6.8 IPS LCD display with a punch-hole camera in the middle, which happens to be similar to what is offered on the standard Camon 18. However, we have a higher refresh rate of 120Hz rate in lieu of 90Hz. Please note that the 18 premier also features a 120Hz refresh rate.
The Tecno Camon 18P cameras are the same as seen on the Camon 18. It’s the same rear camera setup and the same selfie camera.
On the rear setup, we have a 48MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a 13MP telephoto camera with up to 30x hybrid zoom. Lastly, we have a 2MP depth camera with an aperture of f/2.4.
Tecno also made it known on their website that they have introduced a portrait video mode that also works at night, which means you will be able to achieve sharper images when shooting videos.
The selfie department is manned by a single 16MP camera supported by a dual-LED flash for bright selfies.
Hardware and Software
The Performance setup of the Camon 18P leans more towards the Camon 18 premier. Onboard we have the MediaTek Helio G96 processor, the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, 8GB RAM, 128GB built-in storage, a non-removable 5000mAh battery which is slightly bigger than the 4750mAh battery on the premier. We also have a 33W fast charging mechanism in place.
On the software side, we have the HiOS 8.0 user interface running on the Andriod 11 operating system.
The Tecno Camon 18P features a USB type-c port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth and WiFi.
The Internet connection here is capped at 4G, which means enthusiasts won’t get the luxury of 5G speeds.
Tecno Camon 18P Price and Availability
Tecno Camon 18P price in Nigeria is expected at around 125,000 Naira. We will update once the price is confirmed.
The Tecno Camon 18P was announced on October 4th, 2021 and its expected to go on sale later in October.

What are the company’s background and experience with SEO?

Local SEO agencies have the edge over others because of their expertise in local search engine optimisation, which is essential for getting found by potential customers around you who are looking specifically for what they offer.

Does the local SEO company have a proven track record?
If you’re looking for a reputable Local SEO agency, it’s important to consider the quality of their previous work. Ask about how many projects they’ve completed with similar clients or industries and what percentage were successful. If your company is not in one of those categories, then make sure they have experience working on campaigns like yours before hiring them.
Check their website. Some companies will state what services they offer or show client testimonials from previous work done for them. You can also call up potential candidates and ask about past clients that may be willing to give an honest review of the service rendered by your prospective vendor before signing any contracts with them.
How much do they charge for their services?
Local SEO agencies are the best way to keep your business at the forefront of local search, but which one should you go with? When looking for a company that offers these services in your area, it’s important to find an agency that charges fair prices.
The first question any prospective customer should ask is how much does this service cost? There are many factors involved when choosing an appropriate price range, and each prospective client will have specific needs or goals they want to be met through their marketing campaign.
Some customers need more help than others; others may be interested in basic tweaks like title tags on certain pages, while some clients might require advanced techniques such as link building campaigns designed from scratch (while still staying within budget).

Corporations can give themselves that competitive advantage by hiring local SEO agencies who have experience with their industry niche and know how they differ from other companies within the same field locally and nationally.
Be careful, though – just because someone says “we specialise” doesn’t mean they do!

Over the years, we have learned the importance of tires and how they affect the function of our vehicles. Tires are connective points between the car and the road and are essential for the movement of all vehicles. Car tires are connected using the axles and central shaft. There are so many features that make up this rubbery uniqueness, and every car owner should know little or more about these features.
There is so much to learn about tires; we will discuss everything you need to know about them most clearly and comprehensively due to this educational need.
We understand that when our tires are not in the best shape, they affect the vehicle’s fuel consumption and have so many other negative effects. So take your time, sit back and have a read, as we explain all you need to know about your car tires and their maintenance.
I. Common Types Of Car Tires: An Overview
Car tires come in various types, and they are all as relevant as the next. Nowadays, there are many brands producing different kinds of tires. Therefore, when picking tires for your vehicle, you should compare those tires and choose ones that meet your needs the most. You can check out tiresglobe to get a detailed comparison of various tires and find the best tires for you.
Now, it’s time to discuss the diverse common types of car tires that we have below:
1.1. All-season Tires
These tires are as versatile as they can be and adjust appropriately to all environments. They are not necessarily the best for all seasons, but they are good in most terrains and weather conditions.
The tread patterns are complex, and they help with the grip of these tires in wet and dry conditions. Because of the unspecificity of these tires, they are suitable for almost all cars.
1.2. All-weather Tires
These tires have symmetrical tread patterns and a circumferential groove. Tread patterns and compounds contained in the rubber of these tires allow them to navigate properly. Though in the case of extremities, you should pick a tire that best suits a particular climate, but all-weather tires still serve, in case you weren’t able to get specifics.
1.3. Summer Tires
These are performance tires, and they are built for speed. Their tread patterns and compounds are ideal for summer. Summer tires have maximum traction and assist with handling. Their tread is robust, allowing them to withstand the heat and give adequate support to the cars.
1.4. Winter Tires
Winter roads are dynamic, so we need tires that are strong and have a good grip. In the cold weather, the tread rubber can become stiff. Therefore, that’s why these tires are incredibly flexible. They also contain biting edges to help its grip.
1.5. Snow Tires
These are tires with extensive depth and technical patterns. This helps with the navigation of snow. They dispense snow and displace water.
1.6. Highway Tires
Highway tires are the perfect tires for heavy duties. They are used mainly by trucks and SUVs. They bring more comfort as they give the vehicle balance while they are in use.
1.7. All-terrain Tires
The tread on all-terrain tires is free and crafted to fit into all terrains. The sipes might look a little stylish, but it gets the job done. This type of tire can operate all year if they are not expired or has not exceeded its amount of miles (Treadwear Warranty). The side walls present in most all-terrain tires are solid.
1.8. Mud-terrain Tires
The tread patterns in this set of tires are hostile and carefully crafted. The mud is a really sticky terrain, and you need something aggressive so that stone and mud can be easily ejected.
II. Basic Parts of Car Tires
To make up that beautiful mesh we see, we need to understand that the tire has several structures and components that make it unique.
The tread is the most visible part of the tire. This is the part that the average human sees and calls the tire. Tire treads often contain unique designs, depending on what the makers are looking to achieve.
The tread part of a tire includes two compounds, which are the base and the cap. The tread base compounds are necessary for the strength and durability of a tire, while the tread cap compound assists stability and grip. A good tire depth should be 6/32 or more.
These are layers of various materials that are in a thick mesh of rubber. Some materials are fiberglass, steel, rayon, etc., and are meshed together in a crisscross pattern. They give the tire resistance to puncture.
These are simply the space on the surface of a tire. The cuts on the exterior of the rubber of a tire are called sipes. They are highly essential as they improve traction, especially in severe heat, and help navigate through snow.
2.4. Body Plies
Just like the name implies, it is a stack-up of the rubber component in the tire. It is a layer of rubber, reinforcing fabric, and the second layer of rubber. The plies come in different stacks and can also contain various materials, depending on the manufacturer.
The main purpose of this is to create a compartment for water to pass through, and it has a space for water to pass just right under. This helps maintain traction while avoiding spillage. They are mainly for the expulsion of water down below.
The shoulder is the outermost part of the tire and the edge of the tread. A shoulder is a strong tire rubber that has a solid circumferential rib. This part wraps tightly to the sidewall area.
The sidewall is the distance between the rim of the wheel and the top of the tread, and you can measure it in percentage width. This is the side of the tire that protects the body of the cord, including information about the tire like the size, the speed rating, and the load index.
2.8. Inner Line
The inner line of a tire is a rubber compound that binds to the body of the cord, which is structured to retain air under pressure. It functions as an inner tube, and many tires in recent times do not contain inner tubes.
III. Tire Construction Differences: Radial/Bias/Solid
3.1. Radial Tires
Tires constructed this way have cord plies arranged at 90 degrees and spread through the center of the tire. This creates a flexible tire with a shorter footprint. And it also doesn’t allow a lot of deformation, which helps with its grip and ability to withstand punctures.
3.2. Bias or Diagonal Tires
Bias or diagonal tires have rubber and cord piles placed at angles 30-40 degrees. The cords are laid at an opposite angle, giving it a nice cross shape. This helps increase the comfort level when driving.
3.3. Solid Tires
These are tires that do not have air in them. These tires are used industrially and for heavy-duty jobs. They are so strong and resist a high amount of pressure and damage. Solid tires are primarily for slow vehicles that carry a lot of loads.
IV. Tire Maintenance: How To Maintain Your Tires Effectively
It is easier and cost-effective to maintain your tires rather than changing and buying new ones regularly. The lifespan of a tire is about 4 to 5 years when it is properly maintained.
4.1. Ensure proper tire pressure
Tires lose about a pound of air monthly and become placid. This means that you should check the air pressure of the tire every month. The weather influences how much air pressure is lost. Low air pressure in the tires is not safe and causes crashes. Aside from that, proper air pressure helps maintain your tire. It is necessary for your safety and also helping consume less fuel.
4.2. Maintain proper wheel alignment
When you notice an improper positioning in your tire, it is about time you get a proper wheel alignment. Your wheels can either be toed-in or toed-out. You might also feel the wheels of the vehicle shake or vibrate, and sometimes there might be no indication at all.
4.3. Practice tire rotation
Vehicles have different wheel drives. Some of which are front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Not all wheels drive at the same time in a particular car. These cars would have different tire wears.
Some all-wheel-drive tires do have different unequal tears as well. You should shift the wheels and move them to other posts to balance the wear-outs in the tire. This regular and proper wheel position change helps the tire last longer.
4.4. Check Your Tread Regularly
Tire tread makes up a great part of your tire, which means you need to check them regularly. Tire tread offers traction to the road and helps channel water away from the tires, allowing you to operate with optimum ease.
Bad tread depth can cause great harm to the vehicle and its owner. The performance of a tire deteriorates as its tread depth does. Tread deterioration is natural in tires, but other conditions can add to it. So make sure you maintain your tires in the best ways possible.
In this article, we discussed everything we need to know about tires, from the common types of car tires we have to the essential part of these tires. Besides, we also showed the differences in the construction of these tires, and ways how to maintain your tires. With this information about tires and their maintenance at your fingertips, proper care of your car tires wouldn’t be an issue.
There are many instances we would like to capture over the phone or camera and watch them later. The curiosity shall also influence you to upload the video online or send it to your friends and family. While you do so, the raw video will not be the fun-filled one. You might require to crop the video to make it look clear as well.
More importantly, edited or shortened videos will be more professional too. Even though it is sent for entertainment purposes, making a proper video out of the raw clip can create tremendous enthusiasm in the audience’s minds.
The clip that you shoot might be in horizontal or vertical positions. If you plan to merge the videos to make them one piece, you still need the videos to be cropped. On that note, here are the step-by-step methods to crop a video online.Learn the steps, and become a master at it.
Step by Step Guide to Crop a Video
The foremost step before getting into the process of cropping a video is to find suitable software. Not many online video makers have this feature. Also, not many cropping tools are rich in parts too. You must select the device that suits your requirement. It will solve 90% of your cropping challenge. Most of the time, the output shall be blurred if you expand a vertical video to horizontal.
At the same time, some tools are available online that can give you the same quality when you do so. A few premium software can enhance the output quality too. One must also realize that cropping a video is a simple task, and it is might not require creativity like the editing tasks. Let us see how to go by cutting a video online using any software of your choice.
Step 1: Select the Video(s) To Crop
As such, the tool that you will be using is web-based. That means to say you do not require any software to be downloaded. All you need to do is log in with your Google credentials, and you are good to go.
Once you open the cropping tool, upload the video that needs cropping. You will have drag and drop options if you are using a desktop or a laptop. One must also understand that such cropping tasks can be done using Android or iPhone as well.
In such cases, you need to find the upload option. So, coming back, either you drag-drop or use the upload option to upload the video. You will see the video getting uploaded. It might take few seconds to minutes. It depends on three factors.
Size of the File
HD Quality of the File
Speed of the RAM in the Device
So, stay patient while it uploads completely. You cannot do anything to the video while it is uploading.
At the same time, if your video file is not available on the local system or the phone, you can paste the URL of the video instead of on the web. The point is, it is not difficult to upload a video to the cropping tool, but the time taken depends majorly on your device.
Step 2: Crop the Video
Most of the software will have a preview section to see the video once it is uploaded. This window is of multiple uses. You can see the initial video; once it is cropped, you can view the output before downloading it to your device. The usual video dimensions are already present in the software
Square Shaped – 1:1
Letterbox – 16:9
Fullscreen – 5:4
Vertical – 9:16
These dimensions are pre-fixed. So, as you upload the video and attempt to crop it, set the dimension of your choice.
Please Note: Once you set the dimension for a video clip, let it remain the same ultimately. As multiple dimensions can cause distortion and the audience shall get distracted as well. Once the dimension is set, the video gets arranged for the specified ratio. You can also adjust the dimensions manually using the options given. You can crop the video accordingly and complete the task to your satisfaction.
Step 3: Choose the File Format to Download
The best part about these cropping tools is selecting the file format and downloading the video accordingly. Though MP4 is always recommended for mobile phones, a few social media platforms accept only a few forms. You can check for the same and select the download option. Alternatively, you can still choose the crop option once again and start cropping the video.
Step 4: Download the Video
Once your video is cropped as per your satisfaction, you can preview the video and check for the output. It will help you see if there are any changes to be made. Also, the processing time for the video to download takes time.
You can download the file once you are delighted. If there are any tweaks or changes to be made, you can still go back to the video to do the same. Download the video, and as said, it takes time.
As mentioned before, it depends mainly on system configuration. The file size also matters but still, it depends on the storage option in your device. You can download the video either to your device or to your Google Drive account.
The Bottom Line
Now, the cropped video is good to go. You can share the file with family and friends. Some tools give the option to upload the video on social media platforms directly. But ensure you check the preview and then do it. The tool that you select must be suitable for your style of editing.
Further, the features available must be rich enough to get an enticing output. As most of the job is done on the editing front, cropping is a very trivial task. Nevertheless, you need the best tool in your hand to get that done.

Design and Display
The Tecno Camon series has been home to a plethora of Tecno’s well designed smartphones and the Tecno Camon 18 isn’t an exception. As Tecno is once again offering a very appealing design.
How different is this design from what we got on its predecessor? Well Tecno made a substantial effort in my opinion, shedding off some of the elements that ties it to outdated design.
Taking off with the rear, we will find a gradient design, on which you will find a camera module that happens to be more conspicuous than the one on the Camon 17. What’s more, you will notice the absence of the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Tecno has moved on to employing the use of a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Moving upfront, we find a 6.8-inch display, which is slightly bigger than the 6.6-inch display on the Camon 17. Tecno moved the punch hole camera from top left corner to the top middle corner, which is pretty much a neater rendition in my opinion.
The Tecno camon 18 comes in four colour options and they include Dusk Gray, Ceramic White and Iris purple.
As far as numbers go, the Tecno Camon 18 cameras aren’t different from the offerings on the Camon 17. However, in the real world numbers do not offer the final say, as there are a lot that goes into offering better images, with the software being a big player.
On the rear, we have a 48MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a 2MP macro camera with an aperture of f/2.4 and a 2MP depth camera with an aperture of f/2.4. Video recording on this setup is capped at 1080 @ 30fps.
Moving upfront, we have a single 16MP selfie camera which is capable of recording videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software
On the performance side, the Tecno Camon 18 runs on the MediaTek Helio G88 processor, in place of the Helio G85 processor as seen on the Camon 17.
The processor in addition to the absence of a 6GB option has to be the only difference as far as performance goes. We still have a 4GB RAM, 128GB, a non-removable 5000mAh battery and 18W fast charging.
On the software side, the Tecno Camon 18 runs the HIOS 8.0 user interface ontop of the Android 11 operating system.
The Tecno Camon 18 features a USB type-c port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth and WiFi.
The Internet connection here is capped at 4G, which means enthusiasts won’t get the luxury of 5G speeds.
Tecno Camon 18 Price and Availability
The price of the Tecno Camon 18 wasn’t known as at the time this article was written, however, it will be update ones it’s made known.
