Chat Box / How to get bonuses in PariMatc...
Last post by Inturistvovsem - Today at 09:10 PM
Hey! Do you make money on bets or do you just do it for fun? I played blackjack in online Removeds for a long time and made money from it. And then I somehow got tired of the monotony and wanted something new. A friend said that he bets on sports and makes money with it. And I decided to try it too. By the way, bonuses are also one of the pleasant things. You just need to go to the parimatch official site and register. After which you will receive a welcome bonus, which is given to authorized users.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G review



Camera

The USP of this smartphone is its camera setup which includes a 108MP primary sensor, two 10MP telephoto cameras and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The two telephoto cameras, however, have different types of lenses offering 3X and 10X optical zoom, respectively. The camera module also comes with a dedicated laser autofocus unit, and OIS on the main camera.

The smartphone's camera zoom capabilities have improved if compared to the predecessor, especially with the help of the zoom lock feature for a stabilized shot with 30X and beyond zoom.

The moon shots are comparatively far better with 90-100X zoom with S21 Ultra, courtesy AI processing. However, in general, you can get good usaable shots up till 30X, but if you go further, you will need better light coupled with stable hands to get a decent picture. In its price category, no other brand comes closer to S21 Ultra 5G because of the camera capabilities it offers.

The camera app offers a slider to pick zoom of your choice even though there are options available to reach 3X, 4X, 10X, 30X, and 100X with a single tap.

It is worthwhile to mention that the primary camera with the new HM3 image sensor offers sharp images. Additionally, there are improvements in the dynamic range with properly exposed highlights and the right amount of saturation and details.

The low light performance is also great for both portraits and landscapes. If we talk about the ultra-wide camera, you will get sharper pictures with consistent colors.

The phone's camera app has another feature, called Director's View mode which allows you to capture video with combining both the front and back cameras concurrently - it shows simultaneous camera feeds for you to choose for the final video. In terms of video recording, the phone can shoot 4K video at 60fps from the front and rear cameras. You can shoot 8K video at 24fps.

The 40 MP selfie shooter captures great shots and is good for video blogging.

Display and Design

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is a premium smartphone which shows in its design with a contour-cut camera housing and matte glass finish. The design is new as compared to its predecessor, and comes with Corning's new Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and back along with a metal frame. The matte finish is something which increases the premium look especially with the Vantablack-like Phantom Black colour. The 'contour cut' camera module design blends in with the frame making the phone's back look minimal. The phone has a small punch hole in the top centre of the display for the selfie camera.

The smartphone comes with a 6.8 inch Quad HD  display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The 120 Hz refresh rate offers not just a great content viewing experience but a better and smooth experience, especially now with the S-Pen stylus.

Performance

The phone comes with its own Exynos 2100 5G SoC for Indian consumers. Samsung's latest SoC is based on the same design or fabrication process as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. The 12 GB variant which we reviewed handled heavy apps and crucial tasks very well. High-end games like Asphalt 9 were handled well. However, the phone did heat up a bit when gaming.

The phone has an integrated 5G modem, which you can't really test because of the unavailability of 5G networks in India, but 4G performance was great both in terms of voice and data. It has 256GB UFS 3.1 storage for best ever storage performance on a Samsung flagship smartphone.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is the first S series flagship to fully support Samsung's S Pen, which has been the main USP of the Note series. The phone doesn't come with the S Pen and you will have to buy it separately. However, I used the Note 20 Ultra's S Pen and it worked flawlessly on the S21 Ultra.

Battery

This premium smartphone is backed by a large 5000mAh battery which allows it to easily last a day with above average usage. The company's backend software automatically adjusts refresh rate of the display depending upon the usage to save battery.

The phone, which supports 25W fast charging, doesn't come with a charger in the box and you will have to buy it separately or use your old phone's charger. It does come with a USB Type-C cable and the SIM eject tool.The phone also comes with wireless charging capability and reverse charging feature. I used Galaxy Note 20 Ultra's 25W charger, which took 95-100 minutes to fully charge the phone.

Verdict

With the Ultra version, Samsung is offering more options in the Galaxy S 2021 flagship series which also has S21  5G and Galaxy S21 5G. The S21 Ultra 5G truly shines in the areas of processing power, camera performance and battery life, making it the best Android smartphone that Samsung has brought to the market and a strong rival to iPhone 12 Pro series. Those looking for best camera experience in the premium segment can opt for this smartphone if they have a budget of upwards of Rs 1 lakh.

iPhone game for kids secretly turns into Removed



San Francisco: App developer Kosta Eleftheriou has found that an iPhone app posed as a children's game secretly turned into a cryptocurrency-funded Removed in Turkey.

The game called Jungle Run, now apparently pulled by Apple, for kids aged 4 and up, but, if you use a VPN or access the app using an IP from Turkey, it unlocks an online Removed, reports UberGizmo.

"This @AppStore app pretends to be a silly platformer game for children 4+, but if I set my VPN to Turkey and relaunch it becomes an online Removed that doesn't even use Apple's IAP," Eleftheriou tweeted.

The developer points out since Apple advertises the App Store as a place that users can trust, people wouldn't necessarily think twice about downloading this app.

Eleftheriou claims that the app remained in the App Store for months and even had its updates approved by Apple.

Earlier in 2021, Eleftheriou pointed out the number of scam apps on the App Store affecting his business. His claims indicated that scam apps could steal his ideas and promote themselves using his screenshots and videos.

After allegedly running into roadblocks during development that let the competition get ahead, he is now suing Apple for damages, the report said.

He has since used his Twitter account to highlight other scam apps that made it into the App Store.

Ghana government to buy 100% in AirtelTigo



The Ghana government will acquire 100% in AirtelTigo, Bharti Airtel's ailing joint venture with Millicom International Cellular SA in the African country, along with customers, assets and liabilities.

"The Government of Ghana, Bharti Airtel and Millicom International Cellular, through their respective subsidiaries, today announced they have executed the definitive agreement for the transfer of AirtelTigo to the Ghana government on a going concern basis," Bharti Airtel said in an official statement Friday.

It added that under "the proposed agreement, the Government of Ghana would acquire 100% shares of AirtelTigo along with all customers, assets and liabilities.

Airtel said that the transaction would entail "a seamless takeover by the Ghana government, post which, AirtelTigo would become and operate as a state entity".

Airtel shares closed 0.25% higher at Rs 540.55 on BSE Friday. The deal was announced after market hours.

Last October, the Airtel board had cleared the sale of its Ghana joint venture to the government of that African country, and had reportedly taken an impairment charge of Rs 184.1 crore for the transaction.

On Friday, Airtel said it has "already written off its investment and provided for in the prior accounts," which is why, "no further provisions of any material nature are envisaged".

Bharti Airtel had merged its Ghana operations with Millicom back in 2017. The merger was then approved by the local regulator subject to the condition that the African country's government would have the option to buy a stake in the new entity in future.

But the joint venture fell behind MTN and Vodacom in Ghana. Airtel had previously said it would look at consolidation opportunities, including an exit, in markets where it is not among the top two players.

Airtel said the "unsustainable non-controlled JV will be handed to the Ghana government," who are committed to reviving the company, making suitable investments and operating it while protecting the interests of customers, employees and all other stakeholders.

It said the transaction is subject to closing of the mutually agreed conditions and Airtel, Millicom along with the Ghana government would expeditiously complete the closing.

Airtel had a non-controlling 49.95% stake in AirtelTigo, while the balance 50.05% was held by Millicom.

New corporate strategy credit neutral for Airtel: Ind-Ra



New Delhi: Bharti Airtel's and its subsidiaries strong operational and strategic linkages and the new corporate strategy is credit neutral for the company, India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) said.

Ind-Ra said that the linkages will remain strong even under the new corporate structure.

"While BAL has a strong track record of building the businesses and monetising the same, Ind-Ra will access the evolution of digital business and any monetisation of the same on case-by-case basis," the ratings firm said in a note.

Bharti Airtel on Wednesday had unveiled a new corporate structure that would see the listed parent house the digital and infrastructure assets, while moving the telecom businesses to a newly created arm, Airtel Ltd. The reorganisation is likely to sharpen the Mittal-led entity's focus on digital operations with an aim to monetise them in future.

Ind-Ra believes that segregation of licensed and un-licensed revenue streams would provide better clarity on regulatory liabilities, thereby reducing regulatory risks.

Ind-Ra rates BAL's debt at 'IND A1+', Bharti Hexacom's debt at 'IND A1+', and Bharti Telemedia's debt at 'IND A1+'.

The agency that the Indian telecom sector is headed for a second round of consolidation which will bring a structural shift in the business model of telcos from being a provider of voice only services to a complete digital solution provider.

"The offerings such as (a) broadband services, (b) cable TV services (direct -to-home), (c) enterprise solutions (B2B), (d) e-payment wallets/ platforms, (e) music applications and (f) over the top transmission platform, will now become the core offerings in the medium term unlike before, to ensure customer acquisition, customer stickiness and to strengthen the market footprint," it said.

Airtel, Jio pay Rs 2,306.97 crore to govt for advance spectrum allotment



NEW DELHI: The Department of Telecom (DoT) said it has received Rs 2,306.97 crore from Airtel and Reliance Jio for unsold spectrum blocks in place of spectrum blocks they acquired in the same band assigned to them that was to be allocated to them at later dates.

"As a part of the frequency assignment, the Government has also accepted the request of two TSPs - M/S Bharti and M/S Reliance Jio, for assignment of immediately available unsold spectrum blocks in place of spectrum blocks in the same band and LSA assigned to them from later dates," the government said in a statement.

The telecom department has received Rs 2,306.97 crore from Airtel and Reliance Jio against the payment timeline in August-September, 2021. Airtel paid Rs 157.38 crore and Jio paid Rs 2,149.59 crore.

The government has also assigned frequencies to successful bidders of the recently concluded spectrum Auction, 2021. It also issued frequency assignment letters to successful bidders --Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea -- on Friday.

The frequency assignment was accompanied by a frequency harmonization exercise, whereby spectrum blocks assigned to telcos in the current spectrum auction were made contiguous with the spectrum blocks already held by them in various bands in different Licensed Service Areas (LSAs).

The harmonization of spectrum was accomplished in 19 Licensed Service Areas (LSAs) in 800 MHz band, 8 LSAs in 900 MHz band, 21 LSAs in 1800 MHz band, 3 LSAs in 2100 MHz band, and 16 LSAs in 2300 MHz band.

"The harmonization exercise facilitates more efficient utilization of spectrum held by TSPs, leading to improved Quality of Service for consumers," the department said in a statement.

The government sold a total quantity of 855.60 MHz of spectrum in 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz, and 2300 MHz bands to Indian telcos.

The total amount payable by the successful bidders for the total quantity of spectrum acquired is Rs 77820.81 crore. Telcos have already paid Rs 21918.47 crore as upfront payment on March 18, 2021, as per terms and conditions of the Notice Inviting Applications.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra and the Mi 11X/11X Pro smartphones are launching very soon in India. These are the latest flagship devices from Xiaomi and they will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC and the Snapdragon 870 chipsets. The Mi 11X and Mi 11X Pro are basically rebranded Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro+, which are already available in global markets.

COAI seeks ban on illegal mobile signal boosters



New Delhi: The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) has asked the Department of Telecommunications to ensure a complete ban on sale of illegal repeaters and boosters, offline or online, through e-commerce websites.

It has also asked the DoT to take up the issue with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to prohibit the import of such illegal boosters in the country with immediate effect.

The DoT has also been asked to request the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to issue appropriate directions to state DGPs/CPs/chief secretaries to take action under law against the sellers of illegal repeaters in the country.

The COAI has pointed out in a letter that the grey market outlets and online ecommerce stores are making illegal low cost repeaters available for anyone to buy and install illegally.

"The concern is that, such wide band devices draw in network signals to provide connectivity to a particular building or area in an unregulated manner, thereby depleting the network strength in other surrounding areas and results into call drops and depleted network quality," the COAI said.

The telecom industry has voiced its concerns as to how these illegal repeaters have become a major nuisance and are one of the biggest causes for customers facing mobile network issues like call drops and low data speed, especially in densely populated localities.

"Available freely in electronics markets, these repeaters are installed by unauthorised agencies at homes, offices, hostels and guest houses to boost mobile signal strengths. Even landlords and home owners are illegally installing such devices in densely populated areas to attract the tenants, thereby adversely impacting mobile network availability in the entire given area, be it 2G, 3G or 4G networks," the COAI said.

These boosters are causing spectrum interference to the telecom service providers' network signals.

Boosters or repeaters, as they are commonly called, have been increasingly installed over the last few years. The equipment works by drawing in available mobile tower signals in low connectivity areas and amplifying and distributing them in small, concentrated locations, such as a building or a cluster of buildings.

In the past, boosters have been used by the operators in areas, where mobile towers cannot be installed easily.

As per established norms, telecom service providers install such repeaters after thorough inspections, only after a request is raised or there is a requirement.

The TSPs make sure that installing a repeater doesn't hamper the network coverage for people outside the distribution area and does not interfere with other TSPs allotted spectrum frequency, the COAI said.

Since many e-commerce websites/platforms were selling these illegal equipment, the COAI had earlier written detailed letters to the e-commerce companies informing them that possession and sale of such equipment, without obtaining requisite permissions, constitutes violation of the provisions of the Telegraph Act.

Though some of the e-commerce companies have terminated sale of such equipment from their website/platform, some others continue to sell them.
