Is Link Building the Only SEO Strategy to Rank Higher In Google?

October 03, 2018
You've seen that much emphasis is always laid on link building techniques 2017,

And you're probably wondering:

Is Link Building The Only SEO Strategy To Rank Higher In Google?

First off,

Links to any site count as votes for its popularity and relevance. Link building is the most popular SEO technique used as an algorithm by search engines like Google, Bing, Yandex etc in evaluating a site's pages for ranking.

Truth be told:

A large proportion of search engine algorithm is attributed to link related factors which indicate metrics like spam, trust, and authority.

The links automatically show that the site contains relevant content that has been worth being linked to by reputable sites.

For example:

Given the right number of high-quality backlinks, a site with low-quality content and even plagiarized content might rank higher than a site with high-quality content.

Also, a site that is barely a few months old can perform better than a site that has seen many years online thanks to high PR do follow backlinks.

This is crazy!

Now you see what the fuss is all about.

But then, when it comes to search engine optimization, link building strategies are only part of Google ranking factors 2017.

Why is that?

This is because there are several SEO techniques mainly classified into on page SEO and off page SEO.

Link building is an off page SEO technique and it is quite broad. It involves backlink creation on high PR .Gov and .Edu forums, social bookmarking sites, classified Submission sites and high authority sites.

On the other hand,

On page SEO technique can be said to be in bits of this and that. It involves every optimization carried out within the site from a page's title tag, image tag, description tags to keyword density and placement in the content itself.

Is off page SEO enough?

No, you also have to do On-page optimization to increase your website's SERP rank.

Backlinks alone are not enough, you need to have content on your website that is unique, relevant, and well optimized If not, you're building a house on mud.

Although it can definitely help in influencing a site's position in SERPs, it might not help it get top rankings and most likely, maintain its high ranking position (that's if it got that far😏).

So, How can I do on page SEO?

For on page SEO techniques, keywords and site optimization for search engines are the guys you're gonna employ.

SEO On Page Optimization Steps

Here is a quick on-page SEO checklist using keywords.

1. Post title: 

The title of your post is one major factor to be considered when using keywords. It can increase your website's click-through rate if it's catchy enough and also help the post rank high in search engines.

What am I getting at?

Use Google trends to find high trending keywords and Google Keyword Planner tool, then Include these keywords in your post title.

To broaden your search, check out  Best Free SEO Tools that are alternatives to the Google keyword planner tool.

Keep in mind that the keywords you choose must be less competitive keywords because it might be less effective choosing a keyword that has a very high level of competition, not unless you're expecting a miracle anytime soon😃.

You can also use Reddit for keyword research by making use of  Keyworddit tool.

This tool shows you the popular search terms in a subreddit with the highest search volumes. Most times, these search terms will be what people are looking for on search engines or relate to it.

In your post title, you can also include emotional words like amazing, and other mind pricking words like best, latest, leak, 2017 to make your post title catchy.

While you're at it,

Keep in mind that the post title must not lose its main keywords to enable search engines to find it.

2. Post Labels: 

Just as a post's title is important, the labels also play an important role in a site's on page SEO.

Labels are used by search engines in deciding what a post is about and how high it should be ranked on page 1 or how far away from page 1.

What's the catch?

Instead of using generic labels like 'Tech', 'Education', 'Gadgets News' and the likes, you can narrow it down using keywords like 'iPhone 7 Casing', 'iPhone 7', if the post was about iPhone 7.

For example:

If your post is about link building in SEO, instead of using just SEO you might consider labels such as Off-page SEO, Link building, high-quality Backlinks.

3. Post Description:

You're given quite a good number of characters to be inserted as a post description and you are expected to use high ranking keywords that relate to the post.

You wouldn't want to type a bunch of gibberish in this section or write a story about the post as it will definitely influence your site's visibility in SEO either positively or negatively.

Here's the deal:

Search on Google using your post title and copy the related search terms. Your post description should align with these related terms because most times, people won't enter the exact post title you used.

A description using related search terms can go a long way in ranking the post-high when varying search terms on the same topic used.

But then:

There's keyword stuffing on one side and Google monitoring to penalize you on the other!

So don't get tempted.

I don't recall saying you should place the entire search terms you copied and use as your description.

Or did I?😜

Your description should sound as natural as possible but still use some of those keywords.

Where can I also get related search terms apart from google related searches tool?

On forums!

Search on Google and the sub-topics you see on forums are most likely trending keywords people are using to find that post.

4. Post URL: 

By this time you know the keywords your post will center on, why not go ahead and stick them inside the post URL.

As a rule, always check the automatic URL generated for each post you are about to publish and manually modify it with keywords and removing stop words like 'in', 'to' etc if need be.

5. Post content: 

I had to save the best for last.

Here's something we both agree on:

Content is king!


You need to optimize your post content with your keywords and make it look as natural as possible to avoid keyword stuffing.

Let me explain.

The more optimized a content is, the better.

Your post should contain 2 to 3 keywords, generally long keywords that you've gotten from Google's search-related terms and forums.

For me, I usually write the post first, then modify it in the end with my keywords placed at strategic points.


  • Keywords in the first line and paragraph of the post.
  • Keywords in the concluding part of the post. 
  • Keywords in the subheadings and minor headings of the post.
But why stop there?

  • Keywords in the image tag 

The bottom line?

To increase Google ranking of your site, you need to employ these on page SEO techniques with the use of keywords.

How to Optimize Your Website For Search Engines

After optimizing your post, you also have to optimize a website for google search or any other search engine.

What are the benefits of website optimization?

  • To reduce page load speed
  • To enable easy navigation that will provide a good user experience both on mobile view and desktop version of your site
  • To allow your posts to be indexed fast by search engines

Here's what it looks like:

1. Create an HTML sitemap: 

A sitemap allows users to find all your content in one place, neatly categorized based on the labels you've used.

For a new site, it also allows search engines index the site faster while for existing sites, posts get indexed on time. (Before your competitors have enough time to steal it!😌)

Check out this post on how to create an HTML sitemap in a blog.

2. Submit to Social bookmarking Sites and directories:

Here's another:

You can your post and pages URLs to social bookmarking sites and directories.

The result?

Your posts get indexed faster because these sites have regularly updated content and get crawled by search engine bots frequently.

You also stand to gain a few backlinks in the process.

By the way:

You can use tools like pingfarm to easily submit your published posts to directories.

3. Reduce the number of gadgets:

I understand you want a beautiful blog,

One that will leave people's mouth gaping😀.

And you also want your visitors to have a great time while on it.

But wait a second:

This should not be at the expense of your page load's time which can affect your site's rank negatively in search engines.

The title of this section says it all. 

Use the basic gadgets/widgets on your blogs like social media widgets and ads.

I still don't know why you have music playing in the background when I visit your blog. That alone is distracting while trying to read, and I believe some of your readers might think the same and probably leave like I did.

It's funny but:

Awesome! You've successfully increased your site's bounce rate with your bare hands.

There's still a way out!

Use a page load tool like  Pingdom to analyze your pages and test it's page load time.

You can also use Google Webmasters page speed insights tool to find pages on your blog that can be made to load faster.

4. Compress Post Images:

We can both agree that: 

Images in a post make it well detailed to our readers and can make a post rank higher.

But what if:

The images in your post are too large and have a quality that's too high?

Here's a kicker:

Compress your images before inserting them into your post.

A little loss in image quality will not affect your site's SEO rather, it will help the post load faster in search engines and also on the user's device.

Use an online image compressor like Compressnow to reduce the weight of your images.

5. Internal Linking:

While it's great to have fresh content on your blog, you can still help search engines find the old ones by linking them to the new ones.

Links with the anchor text of a related post on your blog in other posts is internal linking.

This technique has several benefits.
  • It can increase your site's page views, 
  • Reduce its bounce rate and,
  • Help the linked post rank higher.

What am I getting at?

Make it necessary for a user to refer to another post in order to learn the entire thing or,

Include links to related posts you've written that will definitely captivate the user.

Believe it or not, 

While that particular post ranks high, those linked to it have a better chance of also ranking high.

Internal linking can be easily done with the related post gadget, but most just place it below the post which a greater percentage of the user's concentration is not on.

I suggest manual internal linking or using gadgets that place the links within the post.

link building in seo

Bottom line?

These are all white hat SEO techniques that are still effective in 2017. Link Building when combined with on-page SEO optimization techniques, can improve any site's visibility in search engines and most importantly, make that site stand the test of time.

Remove Du Quick Charge Lock Screen on Android

October 02, 2018
You might have a need to remove Du Quick Charge lock screen on Android like I did.

For some weeks now, I've been seeing different Ads pop up on my locked screen with a 'Slide to unlock' message, especially when my internet connection is on.

At first, I didn't give it much thought because it didn't happen frequently.

But then,

It got to a point where I got tired of seeing Ads every now and then.

I mean what the heck?

 I see a lot of Ads online, but my phone is my personal space, can I just be free of Ads?

Yep, that was definitely a bad day for it to have finally ticked me off.

So, how can you Remove Du Quick Charge Lock Screen on Android if you're currently experiencing this?

The sections below will show you.

But before then:

What Causes Ads to display on your Android's Lock Screen?

I'll tell you!

Du Quick Charge Malware/Adware and DU services installed on apps are the culprits.

du battery saver malware

What is DU Quick Charge?

You may be wondering.,

What is DU Quick charge, what does it have to do with the all these Ads I'm seeing, and how can I remove ads on lock screen Android?

DU Quick charge is an Add-on or Extension that comes pre-installed on an app.

Like its name, It claims to improve the speed at which your battery charges especially if your device does not have a fast charging feature.

It is also a charge locker that puts a lock on the screen while your Android is charging.

Since this app cannot be downloaded online,

It is either a Malware that infects other apps or a DU services Adware such as such as DU Battery Boost and DU Speed Charge, employed by Android App developers to earn from their apps by showing Advertisements.

Whether it is a Malware that copies itself automatically on an App or an Adware that has been intentionally installed, when that particular app is on your phone, the effect of the DU Quick charge malware can be seen.

Other than the DU Quick charge made by DU Apps Studio, other Add-ons by the same developer are DU Speed Booster, DU Battery Boost, DU Speed Charge, and DU Boost Charge, each of which performs functions similar to the Du Quick Charge.

Effects of DU Quick Charge Malware

A Malware is a malicious software program that causes a Computer, Phone, or Tablet to malfunction.

Malware includes Viruses, Ransomware, Spyware, Adware, Trojan Horses, Worms etc. whose effect on your device can make you lose files by corrupting your system.


The effects of DU Quick Charge Malware on Android is not one that calls for forceful action.

This is because it neither corrupts your data files nor steals them, hence it is not entirely malicious.


Du's Battery Saver, Android Smart Charging App, or Charge Speed Booster for Android displays Ads on your device's lock screen.

While these Ads may not be draining much of your battery power and internet data, they can still be a nuisance.

Look at it this way:

You don't benefit while the Add-on is on your phone because the battery life of your smartphone depends on:

  • The phone's battery capacity, 
  • The device's processor,
  • How often you operate your phone, and 
  • Android operating system (Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo) battery saving features.

On these accounts:

Techlass can say, it is how well your device is optimized to manage its battery power.

You're only helping these developers make money off their Apps each time the Ads are viewed or clicked on, whereas you get nothing except a pretty picture to stare at. Techlass.


If the Advertisement you click on leads you to a site with Malware/Viruses, then you may end up losing your valuable files as well as an Android phone that hangs and lags with time.

For these reasons,

Will you like to get rid of intrusive Ads from DU Quick Charge hijacking your Android Lock Screen?

Then here's how to remove DU Quick Charge and turn off Smart Charging.

How to Remove Du Quick Charge Lock Screen on Android

In my own experience while trying to uninstall DU Speed Booster on Android,

I assumed that these Ads were caused by one of the Apps installed on my phone.

And boy, was I was right!😳

But the problem was, I didn't know the particular App that was infected or came pre-installed with DU Services, so I began uninstalling recently downloaded apps from Google Play Store.

Worse, I even installed an Android App Blocker like AdBlock Plus.

Did any work?

No, neither did!

Even after uninstalling 4 to 5 Apps, the stubborn Ads kept on showing and I just accepted my fate hoping on whenever I'll get the chance to do a device Backup and then reset my Android to Factory settings.

But the same won't be the case on your own part where you'll have to use Malware removal tools or Android App Blockers.

This is because there is a list of Apps with DU malware pointed out by Spincone, a user on Reddit Forum, as well as those Techlass has garnered from user queries and reviews on the net.

The Apps with DU Quick Charge Malware are:

  • ES App Locker 
  • ES File Explorer Pro
  • Xender
  • Touchpal
  • Amber Weather
  • GO Weather Forecast & Widgets
  • Z Camera
  • Kitty Play
  • Locx App Lock
  • Peel Remote
  • 360 Security
  • Amber Weather Wiget
  • App2SD
  • AppLock
  • Flashlight & LED Torch
  • FotoRus - Photo Editor
  • GO Weather
  • HiFont
  • iMuslim
  • InstaMag - Photo Collage
  • KittyPlay Wallpapers Ringtones
  • Next Browser
  • Photo Collage Editor
  • Photo Editor Pro
  • PIP Camera-Photo Editor
  • Sharecloud
  • Solo Launcher
  • TouchPal Keyboard
  • TrustGo Ad Detector
  • UC Browser
  • XBrowser
  • XBrowser - Super Fast & mini
  • Z Camera

Having gone through the list of Apps responsible for DU Battery Saver lock screen, you'll realize those essential Android apps like File sharing Apps (Xender), Browsers (UC Browser), Android App lockers, and Rooting apps (App2D) are part of this list.

Some of these Ads are not as a result of the DU Malware, but the Apps come with DU services;

 For instance, Xender, ES App Locker, 360 Security, and TouchPal Keyboard.

Does it mean you should remove Xender, ES smart charge, and 360 Security charging screen as well as other Apps given on this list?

Wait a second:

1. If the DU quick charge feature is inbuilt into the app, where it installs a lock screen when a charger is plugged in the case of TouchPal keyboard app.


  • Launch the TouchPal keyboard app
  • Click on the Hamburger menu button
  • Navigate to the App's 'General settings'
  • At the bottom, is an option, 'Boost Charge', Select it.
  • Deselect the checkbox for Boost Charge 

And that's it.

To remove ES Smart charge on ES File Explorer,

  • Goto the App's Settings
  • Deselect the Gear Icon 'Charging Boost'

You can try this for individual apps first and see if any has a fast charging feature you can disable.

If this step does not still resolve the issue, then you can now proceed on uninstalling malicious apps.

2. If the charging lock screen feature is caused by DU malware in Apps,

Then, you need to uninstall these apps.

 Even though it might not be the best thing to do, it is a step in the right direction.

To begin,

  • Uninstall the most recently downloaded or updated app to remove DU battery saver from your lock screen.

If you can't  uninstall the app directly from your phone, then,

  • Goto Google PlayStore,
  • Navigate to your installed apps section or search for the App on Google Play Store,
  • Finally, Uninstall it.

Other apps with DU malware include yellow flashlight app, CM Security, Best Me Selfie app.


Either step above will help you remove DU Quick Charge lock screen as well as DU speed booster from Android phone.


Which step worked for you and which app did you have to uninstall to remove this screen locker?

How to Install the Same App Multiple Times on Android

September 28, 2018
Whatever your reason is for wanting an instance of another app on your phone, here's how to install two different versions of the same app in Android and how to save/share cloned apps in Android.

If you're a person with a strong online presence and several accounts on social networks like Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram etc, you will definitely have the need to maintain more than one account on your phone, and multiple accounts require multiple logins.

Unlike apps like the Gmail app for Android that allows login into multiple accounts, there are several others that do not.

Having to login into each account can be time wasting, where some login attempts may even be considered as suspicious by the network, which therefore brings the need to conveniently login on a separate app but from the same Android device.

So, how can you clone WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter apps and others in Android?

I'll tell you.

With the use of applications that can clone apps on Android or create an instance of apps and games in Android. Given below is a list of some that are quite effective in duplicating apps in Android.

Best App Cloner For Android

Here is a list of the best app cloners for Android and are not limited to the ones listed below as you can find several others on Google Play store. Since it's apps we'll be using, rooting for your Android is not required before this can work.

For your first app,

Parallel Space

With Parallel space, you can duplicate an app and sign into individual apps at the same time from your Android. When the original app is updated, the cloned app also gets updated.

Multitasking between the same apps is made possible with parallel space where you can switch quickly between the original and the newly duplicated app.

Download Parallel Space Clone apk Here

After download,

  • Install the app on your device and launch it. 
  • A list of existing apps on your device will be shown to you, 
  • Click on 'Add to Parallel space', select the app you want to clone and it will be replicated.

You can access the cloned app directly from the Parallel space app, and the original app from your device's app drawer.

Lucky Patcher

You can duplicate apps on your phone using this app as well. Lucky patcher creates an apk file of the original app, where you can decide to install on the device again or send to another device.

Download Lucky Patcher Here

After download,

  • Install the app and launch it
  • You'll see a list of already installed apps on your phone, select the app you want to duplicate.
  • Goto the app's 'Tools' menu, 
  • Then from the drop-down menu choose the option 'Clone application'
  • You'll be presented with a dialog box that will request you either go to the cloned file or install the clone file.

And that's it.

App Cloner

As the name implies, this app duplicates most applications on your Android phone. Unlike Parallel space, you can only clone certain apps since not just any app can be cloned by it.

The duplicated apps run as well as the original app without glitches.

AppCloner comes with free and paid version where the paid version allows you to change the icons and the color of cloned apps to separate them from the original apps.

Download App Cloner apk Here


2Face app can be used to replicate apps in android. It also offers additional features such as an incognito mode for private web browsing.

Download 2Face apk Here


Like the aforelisted apps, AppClone also provides the basic function of cloning apps in Android. Other than cloning, you can set privacy control to each app, thereby preventing unauthorized access to apps you want to be hidden on your phone. The cloning is not restricted to only apps, but you can clone your favorite games as well.

Download AppClone apk Here

Each of these apps can create the same app multiple times on your phone. You can download each and see which works best for you.

The iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch Retina display with an HD resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels and pixel density of 326PPI, while the Galaxy S7 has a 5.1 inch AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2650 pixels and pixel density of 577PPI. A higher pixel density on the S7 would make for a better display screen but with more battery power drained compared to the iPhone 7. While the S7 has 484 max nits in bright scenarios, the iPhone 7 has 632 nits, meaning that it would be easier to read, text, etc. under sunlight with the iPhone 7.

Even though both devices have good viewing angles including an excellent color gamut, superb contrast, and the sharpest visuals you'll find on any smartphone, the S7's display with 72.1% screen-to-body ratio would give better visuals. The iPhone 7 comes with a 3D Touch tech that reacts accordingly if there's either a slight touch or a hard press of the screen's surface while the S7 features an OLED technology that offers an Always-on screen that displays the time, date, notifications etc, when the phone is locked, but at a cost of just over 1% battery life per hour. To protect the S7's screen from scratches and cracks is a Corning Gorilla glass 4.


Like the iPhone 7 that shares similarities in design with its predecessor, the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S7 also features a similar design with Samsung’s 2015 flagship, the Galaxy S6. The iPhone 7 is made of metal with a curved front glass and is available in extra-stunning colors of gold, rose gold, silver jet black and matte black. The Galaxy S7 is fashioned from metal and glass, where it has a glass front and back with the edges framed in metal. It is available in five color options of black, white, gold, silver, and pink gold. Although the iPhone 7 at 138g is slightly lighter than the Galaxy S7 at 152g, both can still be handled easily even with one hand.

Water, Dust and Height Resistance

The iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are water and dust resistant with IP67 and IP68 rating respectively. The ranking digit '6' means that both devices are dust resistant, '7' means that the iPhone 7 can be immersed in 1m of water for 30 minutes and '8' means that the Samsung Galaxy S7 can be immersed in 1.5m of water for 30 minutes hence, the Galaxy S7 has a higher water resistivity. The iPhone 7 makes up for this with its aluminum casing that is more durable compared to the Galaxy S7 glass back that can break. 

Hardware and Software


The iPhone 7 has 2GB of RAM, while the Galaxy S7 has 4GB of RAM. Even though the RAM size of the iPhone is smaller, its iOS provides good RAM management, whereas Samsung's TouchWiz UI and Android OS take a lot of memory at any given moment. This means that there would only be a major difference in their specs sheet, but not in terms of multitasking and switching between apps in real-world usage

Internal Storage

The iPhone 7 is available in different variants based on storage options. These are variants with 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB internal memory storage respectively. Based on storage options, the Galaxy S7 is also available in different variants which have 32GB and 64GB internal memory storage respectively. Unlike the iPhone 7, the S7's internal memory storage is expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD card. 

Even though this external storage would be slower, it is still an advantage over the iPhone 7 with an unexpandable memory storage. One can easily switch to the Galaxy S7 by inputting the microSD card of their current phone in the S7 or insert a microSD card if the inbuilt storage is exhausted, whereas they would need a professional iPhone cleaner like MacX MediaTrans to free up the iPhone 7 space if need be.


The iPhone 7 features Apple's new 64-bit A10 Fusion chip which is the most powerful processor in an iPhone. According to Apple, this quad-core processor is 40% faster than the A9, and twice as fast as the A8. Two of the A10 Fusion’s cores are high-performance cores that handle the most demanding tasks while another two are high-efficiency cores that are used for handling more menial tasks. To manage this process, Apple has designed a new performance controller that decides which cores are to be used to handle a given operation.

Depending on the location it is bought, the S7 features either an Exynos 8890 processor with eight cores and a Mali-T880 MP12 GPU (The UK and some selected regions) or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with four cores and an Adreno 530 GPU (The US and some selected regions). The processors on these two smartphones are fast and power-efficient, but the heavy TouchWiz overlay of the S7 does not bring out the true potential of its processor, as apps open slower compared to the iPhone. 

Operating System

While the iPhone 7 comes with Apple's iOS, the Galaxy S7 is powered by Samsung's TouchWiz on top Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. The S7 is expected to get the latest Android OS, Android 7.0 Nougat. This version of Android combines split-screen app viewing, VR support, and improvements in notifications. Meanwhile, the iOS comes with new features including a new widget system, lock screen overhaul, new iMessage and an expansion of Siri's capabilities to third-party apps. 

Although the iOS widgets are not as interactive or adjustable like on Android, they are well arranged in a dedicated screen and display the most relevant and actionable info which would save the time required to constantly go in and out of apps for small checks. Whereas, Android OS allows users to customize their phone from its icons to the animations, and also use of third-party apps that give more customization and control over one's phone.

With the iPhone 7, you can automatically wake the phone by tilting the phone towards your eye or turning it around without pressing the lock key by the side or tapping the home button. A similar feature can be found on the S7 where one has to press the home key twice in quick successions and is then led to the camera app. This serves as a shortcut to the camera from the locked screen. By swiping left on the iPhone 7, you can also access the camera app from the locked screen. Both OS have been optimized to give these devices a good user Interface.

The iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 can be said to feature the best cameras on a smartphone with their 12MP rear cameras. While the iPhone 7 has a rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and 1/2.6" sensor, the Galaxy S7 has a rear camera with  f/1.7 aperture and 1/2.5" sensor. The bigger pixel size of the iPhone 7's camera results in better low-light capabilities and longer exposure. The Galaxy S7's camera has a slight advantage over the iPhone 7's camera in terms of visibility with a brighter exposure, while the latter has an advantage over the S7 in terms of it producing more credible white balance, natural night time and low-light images. 

The S7's camera features an optical image stabilization module, dual-LED two-tone flash, and Samsung's dual-pixel phase detection autofocus. It allows its settings to be changed such that one can change the resolution of a photo, instead of being automatically set at the highest resolution all the time. The iPhone 7 features an OIS, 6-element lens, a quad-LED TrueTone LED flash with flicker sensor, and an image signal processor. The image signal processor of the iPhone can process pictures and take great shots with tone mapping, noise reduction, and a wide color gamut.

The front camera of the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are 7MP and 5MP respectively. Although both have been optimized to produce sharp images, the iPhone 7's front camera has more software features with exposure control, wide color capture, deep trench isolation, Live Photos, and Retina Flash.

Battery and Connectivity


The battery capacity of the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7 are 1960mAh and 3000mAh respectively. The Iphone's battery can last up to 1 day with very little power to spare, while the S7's battery can last well over a day. Although the S7 has more capacity, its higher screen resolution would tend to drain more power when compared to the iPhone 7. Nevertheless, a larger battery capacity is better for a high-end device than a very low battery capacity like the one on the iPhone.http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/disapointed.png The Samsung Galaxy S7 can support talk time up to 22 hours, and music playback time up to 62 hours. According to Apple, the iPhone 7's battery can last two hours longer than that of the iPhone 6S.

Fast Charge

There is no fast charging or wireless charging support on the iPhone 7, but the Galaxy S7 provides support for both. It will take 2 hours and 20 minutes to fully charge the Iphone's battery whereas it'll take less than 1 hour and 30 minutes to fully charge the S7's battery, thanks to its fast charging support. 


The iPhone 7 also lacks a headphone jack in Apples's bid to save up space for more features like better waterproofing. Instead of a headphone Jack, users of the device get a pair of lighting EarPods which are connected to the phone's charging port. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 still maintains its headphone, Jack. This means that while one cannot charge their iPhone 7 and listen to music simultaneously via wired headphones, they can on the Galaxy S7. 

The iPhone 7 has dual stereo speakers where one is located at the bottom and the other on top. Apple claims these speakers are two times louder than the Ipone 6s. In contrast, Galaxy S7 has a single bottom speaker, hence audio quality is better on the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 supports up to 25 LTE bands while the Galaxy S7 supports 20 LTE bands. Both smartphones support dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.2.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

The iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 match up to each other with their similar functionality but different features, premium build powerful hardware and software. A user's choice of one over the other would be based on their preference, especially if they prefer an iOS or Android OS. Most fans of the iPhone would prefer it to Samsung, while die-hard fans of the Android OS would pick the S7 over the iPhone. Now it'll be more of a war between iOS and Android. 

Comparing Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 7, there's no clear winner. Looking for a device that offers better speed, has an OS that is lighter and faster than Android, with audio prowess, greater pocketability, and manageability in the hand? then the iPhone 7 would be a better choice. But if you want a device that has better cameras, good wide display, long battery life with support for fast charge, better waterproofing, expandable Internal memory storage, available headphone Jack and at almost half the price of its competitor, then the Samsung Galaxy S7 is your phone. 

In the end, it all boils down to your personal preference because neither smartphones will disappoint. I would definitely pick the Samsung S7 over the iPhone 7 not only because of its lesser price but the Android OS which I've been using for years. If I want to tweak a particular feature on the phone or want the device to behave in a certain way, I know where in the settings I should go or a third party application I can use to effect that. If a system error occurs, I have a solution at hand instead of going through several pages on Google just to find a solution. If you're a blogger, you'll need a device like the Galaxy S7 to enable you to work from phone. Also with the S7, I can easily share apps and games with other Android devices and also download them without the need to use a computer like on the iPhone. The Apple iPhone 7 is value for your money while the Samsung Galaxy S7 is more value for your money.http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/smile.png

Facebook Research Program Nigeria [Earn $1000/Month]

August 16, 2018
Would you like to earn at least $10 a month even while sleeping? Then meet the Utest Facebook Research Program from Applause as the newest kid on the block! Now, you can  join the Facebook Research Program in Nigeria.

This is a program that has gotten a lot of attention from users in the US, India, and several other countries.

If you've never made a dime online or on Facebook, consider this as your turn to shine😋.

Therefore, get ready to grab it with both hands.

Click Here to Join 

So far,

Bloggers have made tons of cash from Facebook either by promoting their sites through Facebook Adverts or on Facebook profiles, groups and pages.

I can confidently say the same for affiliate marketers who are constantly promoting their Products through adverts and Facebook Chatbots.

But can you say the same?

I guess not!

While it is good to have tons of friends to chat with on Facebook and liven your day, it's even better to know that you're making some cash as well.


What exactly is the Facebook Research Program?

How much is it?

To answer the second question, you're not paying a dime to be a part of this program but you'll still get paid.

Payment is guaranteed as long as you've registered on the Facebook Research Program, but the amount you earn is determined by how much you work.


Let's put aside the stories and go straight to the point.

Here's an overview of what you'll find in this post:

  • What is Utest Facebook Research Program?
  • How does Facebook Research Program Work?
  • How do I join Facebook Research Program In Nigeria?
  • When and how will I get paid?
  • How do I get a Paypal Account In Nigeria?

What is Facebook Research Program?

The Facebook Research Program is carried out by Applause, a global leader in crowd testing, feedback, and research.

This is a research project that requires that you install the Facebook Research program app APK or ios and keep it active in the background.

Once the app is installed, it checks the URL of the websites you visit, the mobile apps you use and their data usage and statistics, and generally how you use your phone.

Please note that your data such as messages, contacts, and other personal details are safe because the data received during this survey is mostly from Apps you use and websites you visit.


The data gathered from this survey is kept private and therefore it is as safe as possible.

You may be wondering,

What is the data then used for?

The data obtained is used only for Research purposes in order to improve customer services.

Look at it this way:

While some apps you've granted access rights to on your phone upon installation are already taking this data for free and without your knowledge due to the prior consent you've given,

Applause has decided to do this after seeking your consent and is willing to pay you at least $10 every month.

So you see,

Whether you choose to join or not, your app data is not even private to begin with because these third-party apps you have on your phone can already access them.

On the other hand, you can be assured that your data stays private while you get paid for granting privileges to limited areas on your phone.

If you're ready to earn some money from uTest Applause, here's what you should know:

How Does the Facebook Research Program Work?

All that is required, is that you install Facebook Research app by Applause on your Android or iOS phone and you'll start earning at least $10 a month.

But wait for a second:

The Facebook research program is meant for only residents in the US and India, which means that people in other countries are not allowed to register.

That notwithstanding,

You can still register, earn, and receive your cash as if you were in either of these two countries.

This and many more will be covered in a later part in this post.

So, read on!

In the Facebook Research program, you can earn money in two ways which are:

1. By keeping the app on your phone

2. By referring friends and family to join

Let's break each element down:

1. Keeping the app on your phone:

Upon successful registration for the Facebook Research Program, you get paid $10 every month just for keeping this application on your phone.

Impressive right?

Download Facebook research app, install it and leave it there for a year and that is $10 straight to your Paypal account every single month.

Whichever month you choose to delete the Facebook Research program app from your Android or iPhone, payment will be discontinued.

With that in mind, if you're ready to keep it for a year, then you're ready to receive at least $120.

It gets better!

2. Referring Friends and Family:

The catch in this program is actually in referring others to join.

This because you get paid $10 for each person you refer to register, download, install, and keep the app active on their phone.

In that case,

If you're able to convince 10 people in a month to download and install this research application and without deleting it within 30 days, then you will get paid about $100.

You'll notice that I keep making reference to the term AT LEAST because there are bonuses and what you get is not fixed.

Here's what it looks like:

  • You get paid $15 for each person you refer within 30 days after your registration and for every other month they are still active on the program.
For example:

If you refer 10 people immediately after your registration (30 day period) you get $150 in that month and also get paid $150 every month as long as they are still using the app.

  • You get paid only $10 for each person you refer 30 days after your registration.  

Stay with me!

  • For every 5 persons in your referrals that are active in a given month, you get a bonus of $20
For example, 

If 15 people out of the 40 people you refer in a month are active, then you get paid a bonus of $60. 

So you see, it's actually possible to make $1000 in a month from the Facebook research program.

That being the case,

Set a target that is higher than the $10 free cash.

How Do I Join Facebook Research Program In Nigeria?

Utest Facebook Research is only for US and Indian residents, as a result, if you are in Nigeria or another country, you will need to use one of the best VPNs in 2018.
