With the prominence of remote work in our lives, people have been rediscovering ways to improve their home offices. From DIY design upgrades to new tech, there are many ways you could make working from home more productive. Are you feeling like your home office isn’t meeting the demands of your job? Take the logistical stress out of your day and consider if buying a new tablet if the right choice for your needs.

 

Tablet Talk

You’ve probably heard all about the big tablet boom. From media portrayal to high end brand releases, tablets are all the rage these days. The majority of the big telecommunications brands have their own version of a tablet, the most well-known of which are Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. Tablets are easier to use than a smartphone because of the bigger screen making it easier to view websites and watch videos. Similar to a smartphone, tablets have a large app market and thousands of app options for users. Tablets are in high demand because they are lightweight and easily portable while holding similar capabilities as a laptop, while being more affordable.  This broadens the world of what a tablet can do from streaming to art design, making the tablet a great asset to your home office. However, there are some reasons a tablet may not be for you. If you need access to an HDMI port or USB ports to connect to a projector, non-wireless printer, or hard drive, then a computer may be better suited for you. With that being said, a tablet can be a great addition to households who already have computers but would like a more transportable option for their remote work or school.

How to Take a Picture of the Moon with a Smartphone

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

iPhone 12 Pro

 

If you’ve ever tried to take a picture of the night sky with your smartphone, it’s pretty clear that the moon never looks as good in photos as it doesn’t in person. However with the increase of innovation in the tech industry, handset cameras are becoming more high quality. This means you don’t need to break the bank to get a high definition photograph. Whether you are on a romantic night out or hanging with friends at a beach bonfire, here are some tips to help you improve your photography and best capture your memories.

 

Night Sky Photography Tips:

  1. Clean your lens. Thumbprints can obstruct a good image so give your lens a wipe with a lint-free cloth before heading out.
  2. Steady your hand or use a tripod to ensure a clear image.
  3. Plan your timing. The moon is most visible as it is rising so try your luck at the beginning of the night.
  4. Pinch and zoom to frame and then make sure your flash is off.
  5. Want even more control over your quality? Download a specialized camera app. This will allow you to manually adjust things like ISO and shutter speed.
  6. Check if your phone has advanced photography features. Some handsets have a Night Mode in their camera settings that elevate camera performance.

Unlocked Mobiles carries the best handsets on the marketplace at industry competitive prices. But how do you narrow down your search to find the phones with the best cameras for your personal and professional use? If camera quality and ability is your number one priority when buying your new handset, I recommend checking out these Unlocked Mobiles Best Sellers:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Galaxy Fold: What should you buy?

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

fhWfuAhhoJNN7BnP3qDMsT

The Samsung Galaxy Fold series is one of the most innovative recent developments in the mobile industry. It features a book-style design with a vertical fold, revolutionizing our conceptions of modern smartphones. If you’re looking to upgrade to a foldable smartphone, you’re probably looking at the recent Samsung products. Now the real question is, how do you decide between the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Galaxy Fold? And is there actually a difference? Here’s a clear and easy breakdown to help you decide what phone is the best for you.

Price

Money makes the world go around. Getting a new Samsung Galaxy Fold is an investment so let’s break down what you’ll pay for each phone. The Samsung Galaxy Fold starts at £1,800. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 was released in 2020 at £1,999 but it can be picked up right here on Unlocked Mobiles for £1,124. That saves you over £800! Best bang for your buck? Buying on Unlocked Mobiles saves you money on both phones and offers Sim Freedom to maximize your savings!

Design
Both the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 feature a book-style design with a vertical fold. The Galaxy Fold measures at 160.9 x 62.8 x 17.1mm when folded and 160.9 x 117.9 x 7.6mm when unfolded. There’s a triple camera on the rear and a dual camera on the front. The frame is made from stainless steel and the device comes in two colour options of Space Silver and Cosmos Black. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes in two colours: Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black. There are also four hinge customisation options: Metallic Silver, Metallic Red, Metallic Blue, Metallic Gold. The Z Fold 2 is slimmer but wider than the Fold, measuring at 159.2 x 68 x 16.8mm folded and 159.2 x 128.2 x 6.9mm unfolded. The hinge has also been redesigned, allowing for opening at different angles. In a stylistic touch, the gap between the hinge and display has been reduced. The Z Fold 2 has the same rear camera display, however a punch hole camera has been added on the front, right side of the internal display. Our Vote? Both feature advanced camera systems and sleek designs. The Galaxy Fold is perfect for those who want a smaller display and more traditional colours. It comes down to personal colour and design preference.

Display
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a 7.3-inch display when unfolded and a 4.6-inch external display when folded. The display is AMOLED with a resolution of 2152 x 1536 that delivers a pixel density of 362ppi. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 7.6-inch screen when unfolded and a 6.2-inch screen when folded. It offers an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and has a resolution of 2208 x 1768 pixels, delivering a pixel density of 372ppi.
Can you see the light? For a bigger and brighter display, I recommend the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Summary
So there you have it! There’s no wrong choice. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the Galaxy Fold are both sleek, high-speed devices that excel industry-wide in display quality, performance and photography. If you want my two cents, I’d go with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 for the best design, display quality, and most powerful camera system. You can pick up both phones on Unlocked Mobiles now for unbelievable savings!

Sustainability in the Olympics

Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

0- olymp gt

After a year long delay, the Summer Olympics are here! This year the games are held in Tokyo and several surrounding cities in Japan, including Fukushima and Yokohama. The Summer Olympics officially began July 23 with the opening ceremony and end August 8 with the closing ceremony. The Olympics typically draw together more than 11,000 athletes and 25,000 journalists from more than 200 countries. This year, the Summer Games are rumored to be unlike ever before. Tokyo has put an emphasis on sustainability, turning an eye to the telecommunications and electronics industries.

The Unique Medal Design of the Olympics

But what does the telecommunications industry have to do with the Olympics? This year, the medals in Tokyo are made from recycled cellphones and other electronics, helping to combat e-waste pollution and global warming. Recycling has been a key part of the sustainability efforts of the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, with both the medals and podium being made from used materials.

The Rise of E-Waste Pollution

This public display of sustainability is incredibly important because it brings the e-waste epidemic to the public eye. The volume of e-waste has been rising significantly over the past ten years. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is estimated that between 20 and 50 million tons of e-waste gets generated worldwide annually. In that, there are roughly 416,000 cellphones disposed of each day. This not only pollutes the earth but also pollutes the surrounding air and water with toxicity. The biggest thing we can do to limit e-waste is to properly recycle or refurnish or technology.

Recycle with Unlocked Mobiles

Our team at Unlocked Mobiles offers a Recycle Your Phone feature, where you trade in your used phones in an eco-friendly way and make a profit while doing so! We are committed to refurbishing used phones to create a more sustainable future for the quickly-changing tech industry. As a company, we are working towards a better future for our planet by striving to limit e-waste and advocating for environmental preservation. Have a phone you’d like to recycle?

Will we ever see the Samsung Galaxy Fold? We hope so.

Monday, May 13th, 2019

A little under three months ago a few members of the Unlocked Mobiles team were in attendance at the Samsung event in San Francisco, where Samsung unveiled the future in smartphones, well at least we thought so, with the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The hall was filled with excitement, everyone thought that this was an industry changer and we were expecting a new evolution in handheld devices.

After the announcements, we all made our way through the exhibition area to the sample rooms on either side of the venue, we were all excited to see the amazing new device. However, there was one strange question by everyone at this event when we got to the display stands – just why is the Galaxy Fold not on display? Why would there be an announcement for a product and then not have it to show the people who were invited. If there was an indication that Samsung were not ready to showcase this device then this was it. A week later at MWC in Barcelona, we were greeted with exactly the same situation. However, we had faith in Samsung, even after the Note issues in the past, surely they would not make a similar mistake? Well, it appears to have happened again. The lucky people (press and influences that haven’t paid and would have to return the initial samples) who got to use the device before general sale started to receive their sample units and gradually the devices became unusable and failed.

samsung-fold-image

As of writing this post, we are still unsure at to whether the Fold will be released. We hope it does. We hope it will work and we hope it will make way for a new array of amazing devices from Samsung and other OEM manufacturers. Be confident that if it is released, Unlocked Mobiles will stock the Samsung Galaxy Fold Sim Free, so register your interest on our product page – you never know – it may be the best phone ever released after all!
