Samsung Galaxy A30s: First Impressions
Samsung recently upgraded its Galaxy A Series with the A30s and the A50s. These devices are packed with more features than their predecessors but are still within the same price range. The Samsung Galaxy A30s is by far the more impressive device since it has flagship-like features at the price of a mid-range smartphone. Surely you can’t wait to get your hands on this beauty, but before you do, here’s what you can look forward to from this little dynamite device: Under the Hood The A30s is raring to go with a powerful Octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM, which means faster processing for apps and even serious gaming. Matching up to its flag-ship forefathers, the A30s has an internal storage capacity of 128GB with a slot for a 512GB microSD card. Screen and Body Just looking at the Samsung Galaxy A30s tells you that this is a sleek pocket computing machine. You can easily get lost in its 6.4 inch Infinity-V display, which uses every inch to immerse you into an amazing experience. The body has an eye-catching prismatic look and design. It’s small enough to fit in your palm for easy navigation and comes in Prism Crush Black, White, Violet or Green. The holographic patterns with the glossy finish certainly stand out. Three Rear Cameras! This is where the Samsung Galaxy A30s steps it up. It has three rear cameras: a 25MP main camera, an 8MP Ultra-Wide lens and a 5MP Depth Camera for focus so you can capture the perfect picture. If you love selfies, the A30s houses a 16MP front-facing camera that delivers high-resolution photos, as well as a Selfie Focus feature that blurs the background to make you the star of the shot. Good Battery Life The A30s comes with a typical battery of 4000mAh, which should last a day with normal usage. However, it also has a 15W fast charger so that you can juice up in no time. Safety and Data Saving Features Samsung have packed so much into this little device. One of the flagship type features on the A30s is the fingerprint sensor. This is used to secure your smartphone and verify the identity of the person unlocking it. If, for some reason, it is broken into, Samsung has included its Knox programme, which protects all your sensitive and personal files. The Samsung Galaxy A30s is also Dual-Sim compatible, which is a fantastic feature to manage your data spend. Verdict: It’s a great phone for the price The A30s is a mid-tier smartphone that’s loaded with flagshiplike features and an amazing physical appearance, resulting in an excellent smartphone, making it a prime example of getting more bang for your buck.

Telkom Launches New and Improved FreeMe Plans
In 2016 Telkom revolutionised the mobile data world with its innovative FreeMe packages. These plans became popular as they offered great value at affordable rates and were delivered at a time when consumers started raising concerns over the high data costs in South Africa. . Four years on and Telkom has decided to refresh their FreeMe offering, paving the way for their New Generation FreeMe plans. Here’s what the new plans offer to consumers. Tiered Approach with More Perks! The new range of plans will offer a tiered approach to the benefits customers get on each plan. Previously, subscribers on the lower plans didn’t enjoy all the perks that highend plans such as the FreeMe 20GB did. Even though there will be a small increase in the price, the plans will still offer the best value. All New Generation FreeMe plans will offer All-Network minutes and streaming data based on the plan you choose. Simply put, you will get what you pay for. New: Streaming Data Telkom’s new postpaid plans willcombine the LIT streaming services as opposed to the previous FreeMe. Data for video streaming such as YouTube and Netflix as well as music streaming such as Google Play and Spotify were previously allocated separately. They’re now bundled into one offering with no separate data for streaming, but this does not include a Netflix subscription. The New Telkom FreeMe Plan Offerings The range of the FreeMe post-paid plans has all changed their names to match their data offering. These are all based on SIM-only deals. The lowest tier is the FreeMe 800MB , which includes: · 500MB of all network data · 150MB WhatsApp data · 500 minutes to call Telkom Mobile and Fixed lines · 15 minutes to other networks · 50 SMSs per month and 150MB of streaming data.

It has unlimited all network data with a fair usage policy of 30GB, 5GB WhatsApp Data, 3000 minutes to Telkom Mobile and Fixed Lines, 3000 minutes to other networks, 3000 SMSs per month and 5GB of streaming data. Terms and Conditions Inclusive All Network data is allocated monthly and expires at the end of two consecutive calendar months, so you will be allowed to carry over any data you have left. Data transfer on all-network data plans is permitted to other Telkom subscribers. WhatsApp data is allocated for one calendar month and cannot be carried over. This data can only be used for WhatsApp and Viber. The data transfer option is not permitted on data for WhatsApp. Telkom-to-Telkom calling minutes and all-network minutes are valid for one calendar month and carryover isn’t permitted. The minutes cannot be transferred to other Telkom users like data. After those minutes are depleted, all network minutes will be used and after that, Telkom-to-Telkom calling will go out of bundle at a voice rate of R0.70. The same rate applies to other network calls. SMSs are allocated for one month only. They can’t be transferred or carried over. Once SMSs/MMSs are depleted, you will be charged out-of-bundle rates of R0.30 (160 characters) for SMS and R0.50 (300KB) for MMS. Streaming data is not allowed to be carried over and is allocated monthly. It can’t be transferred and will provide video streaming capped at a maximum speed of 1.5Mbps on the Telkom network. Overall, these new FreeMe contracts provide an even spread of benefits across all tiers. View the latest FreeMe Deals here.
