Note for Americans: here WhatsApp is the de facto communication standard. Literally nobody uses SMS/iMessage/Facebook messenger/signal. And carriers still charge 2 euro for a MMS which completely kills iMessage/RCS (if accidentally send MMS, it's expensive)

I switched phones and instead of copying manually /Android/data/media/com.whatsapp I used the new feature of pairing via qr code.

Besides that's a not very well designed feature (you need to start transfer on the old phone before logging in the new phone) because they really want to store unencrypted backups on Google drive, the transfer completed in a short time.

Maybe too fast, I was expecting at least one hour to transfer the 5000 photos 10gb, instead it completed in 20 seconds.

So I told myself, ok photos not transferred, I'll just do that manually and directly put them in the photo archive on my PC rather than keep them mixed with all the "happy holidays" trash.

I browse the old phone to /Android/data/media/com.whatsapp and... It's empty. Wiped clean after the "successful" transfer process!

Luckily I had set syncthing (the fork on fdroid, the one on play store doesn't have access to whole storage) to have a full overnight backup! On my PC I still had all the photos, almost deleted too as I noticed that I didn't set the "trash can" option

Conclusion: go to download syncthing fork from fdroid and have a safety net from mistakes like this

Physically, the phone is the same as the consumer version. There is a difference in software and support that makes deploying this phone to employees and helping them out when something goes wrong is easier.

First off, the phone comes with an extended 3-year warranty. Also, the usual 3 years of security patches have been extended to 5 years to ensure that company data is kept safe. The phone will still only receive 2 years of OS updates, though.

But if your company has staff with a skilled hand in electronics, some repairs can be done in-house with tools and instructions provided by iFixit. The HMD Repair Hub on ifixit.com offers replacement batteries (€20), charging ports (€15), back panels (€3) and even displays (€40) at very reasonable prices. Basically, the things most likely to break can be replaced in-house. And the battery is rated to maintain at least 80% of its original 5,000mAh capacity after 800 charge cycles, so it will be a few years before normal wear and tear makes a battery swap necessary

TL;DR

  • Google appears to be working on an updated version of Google Lens.
  • A new flag, “Lens Circle to Search,” was discovered in Chrome for iOS.
  • This won’t be the same system-wide integration we see on Android.

Got to agree with the conclusion of the review, while this seems like a decent offering (and I personally like the "retro" look), for Є400, you might as well get a A55 with a much better screen and probably longer security support (Android OS updates aren't that important these days).
