The Benefits of a SIM-Only Deal
It’s only natural for human beings to want shiny new things. We often change our cars, our televisions, our computers, and of course, our phones, but in most cases, nothing is wrong with the stuff we already have. The standard of smartphones being released by manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei have increased tremendously, making it possible to extend the life of your device to around three or four years. Renewing your mobile contract every two years just to have the latest cell phone isn’t practical if you already have a device that works just fine. Rather save your money and get more benefits like data and voice minutes for less with a SIM-only deal. Here are the key benefits of a SIM-only mobile deal: SIM-Only Deals Save You Money With a SIM-only deal, you pay only for your inclusive monthly benefits, such as airtime, data and SMS bundles without the added burden of a built-in device cost. In other words, the same amount of data and number of minutes will cost less per month on a SIM-only deal than they would as part of a plan with a new device. All you need is your own mobile phone, tablet or router to use with your fully loaded new SIM card. Pay Only for What You Need Deals with an included smartphone or router can be more restrictive in terms of included benefits, as the cost of the device is factored into the overall deal, so you end up paying for more but getting less. SIM-only plans tend to be more flexible than their counterparts when it comes to choosing a plan that suits your needs and budget. You can get a SIM-only deal with much more data or inclusive minutes than you would for the same price on a deal with a bundled device. You Get the Same Network Benefits as Device Deals There’s a common misconception that you get less network benefits with SIM-only deals compared to their counterparts bundled with a device. The truth is that you get all the same benefits, and with some plans you even get the flexibility of a month-to-month deal instead of being locked into a 24-month contract because there’s no device to pay for monthly. Faced with increasing costs of fuel, electricity and basic living expenses, SIM-only deals offer South Africans the flexibility of keeping their smartphones and getting lots more data and minutes to stay in contact with your friends, family and the rest of the world.

Smartphones of the Future - A Glimpse into Foldable Phones!
The recent launch of Huawei’s new Mate X folding smartphone shortly after the debut of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold in 2019 serves as a milestone for design in mobile aesthetics. Numerous other smartphone manufacturers have also filed patents that show their intention to release foldable phones. Foldable-screen smartphones are clearly the new design trend, offering users the option switch from a standard smartphone display into a small tablet; but, how did mobile phone design get to this stage? The proverbial “brick” cell phone laid the foundation, leading to smaller devices with colour displays before a built-in camera became a mobile standard. Shortly after, manufacturers shifted direction for larger displays and slate form factors to accommodate a screen aspect ratio that made watching videos and playing mobile games easier. Most recently, smartphone manufacturers introduced the ‘notch’ to design to offer users even more screen by slicing into the corners to create a larger screen-to-body ratio, but it seems the obsession with bigger screens has just become more intense, and the foldable phone seems to be answer. The good news about the foldable smartphone trend is that South Africans won’t have to wait too long for these devices to reach our shores. It is expected that South Africa will get its first folding screen smartphones from both Huawei and Samsung in the third quarter of 2019. While both manufacturer’s devices are foldable phones, they each have distinct features. The Samsung Galaxy Fold features two displays. The cover display is 4.6 inches, which then opens up into a 7.3-inch tablet display. This leaves a very large bezel around the cover display, with the cameras on the back. Meanwhile, Huawei’s Mate X smartphone features a single display using the so-called “Falcon Wing” mechanism, meaning the screen folds the opposite way to the screen on the Samsung Galaxy Fold. When closed, the device offers two displays, one on the front and one on the back. Each display is 6.6 inches large, and when opened, offers an incredible 8-inch tablet screen. Although Samsung and Huawei are going head-to-head in the folding screen smartphone space, online speculation is that Apple has filed a patent for a folding iPhone and will soon be joining the competition. If rumours are to be believed, the folding iPhone may trump both Asian counterparts with the introduction of a three-display foldable smartphone, offering two displays on the cover like the Mate X but opening up like the Galaxy Fold. Manufacturers have shied away from revealing SA pricing, but given the cost of the current generation of flagship phones, we don’t expect that foldable phones will be cheap.
Huawei P30 Has Arrived: Here’s What You Need to Know!
Huawei released the anticipated P30 flagship range of phones in Paris in March 2019 surrounded by much fanfare, and this latest generation of devices from the Chinese manufacturer proves to be worthy of the hype. The P series range consists of the P30 Lite, P30 and P30 Pro, each offering plenty of great features that build upon the last generation P20 range while offering enough new bells and whistles to delight new and old users alike. The P30 and P30 Pro feature OLED displays, while the P20 Lite is fitted with an IPS LCD screen. The P30 is equipped with a massive 6.47-inch display, while the P30 and P30 Lite are kitted out with 6.1-inch screens. The dewdrop notch on the entire range has been shrunken down even further as part of an overall redesign that minimizes the bezels and maximises the screen to give the impression of a near-frameless display, and it looks absolutely stunning. The P30 range also benefits from a choice of stylish new paint jobs, so in addition to the standard black, you have the option of the nature-inspired Amber Sunrise, Breathing Crystal or Aurora. Huawei is known for the amazing cameras on their devices, thanks to their partnership with Leica. The P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera system, which includes a 40MP main camera with Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera and a Time-of-Flight (TOF) 3D Camera on the rear. This setup allows a first-of-its-kind 10x hybrid magnification and 50x digital zoom. The front of the device boasts a 32MP camera that takes selfies to a whole new level. The younger siblings, P30 and P30 Lite, both offer a triple camera setup on the rear with 32MP shooters on the front, although the specs differ from model to model. Overall, Huawei firmly maintains their place in the smartphone arena with the P30 series, especially for consumers who want near pro-level cameras on a mobile device. Along with their competitive pricing and impressive under-the-hood engineering, rival manufacturers have a real contender on their hands.
