Royole FlexPai Review: Hands-on

The Royole FlexPai is the first flexible phone, but it shows that we still have a long way to go before bending your phone becomes routine
Should I Buy The Royole FlexPai?
‘Fun but flawed’ is really the only sensible reaction to the FlexPai right now. The foldable display tech is genuinely impressive, but you can’t escape the feeling that it’s not quite there yet.
Laggy software, a plasticky finish, and worrying evidence of screen burn mean that right now the FlexPai feels like a sign of where phones are going - but proof that they’re not there just yet.

Deleting sent messages on WhatsApp: Here’s a cheat code

Deleting sent messages on WhatsApp: Here’s a cheat code

Deleting sent messages on WhatsApp: Here’s a cheat code

Of all the features that WhatsApp has acquired over the years, ‘Delete for Everyone’ is definitely among the best. This feature works for both iOS and Android platforms and follows the same suit for both individual and group chats. Using this feature, you can remove a message that you sent, accidentally or not, from the chat within 7 minutes of sending it. However, there may be times when you may want to delete the chat but those ‘golden 7 minutes’ have expired. But now it seems there’s a way you can do it even after seven minutes.

The ‘hack’ has been discovered by Android Jefe, a Spanish blog website. The blog claims that a bug in WhatsApp allows this hack, using which you can delete messages even after 7 minutes of sending them. But here too there’s an expiry limit of seven days. This means users can delete messages sent for up to a maximum of seven days. Another plus, it works for both read and unread messages. This means you can delete/recall a message even after it has been read. Wondering how? Here’s an step-by-step guide:

* Go to Settings

* Turn off Wi-Fi and Mobile Data of your smartphone

* Go back to the main Settings page and head to Apps

* Select WhatsApp and choose Force Stop

* Go back to main Settings page again and head to Date & time

* Disable Automatic date & time

* Set the date and time to exactly the same as you sent the message

* Reopen WhatsApp and go to that message

* Tap and hold on it and choose Delete

* Now you will be able to see both options to ‘delete for me’ and ‘delete for everyone’

* Select ‘Delete for Everyone’ and the message you wanted to delete/recall will show as ‘This message was deleted’ GadgetsNow too tested this feature and found that it does work. Though it did take a few extra minutes at times for the message to be delete from the recipient’s phone.

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
