The team of the popular private classifieds service Avito announced the launch of a new service – a program for the quick redemption of smartphones from ordinary users-private sellers.
As the press service notes, with the help of the new service, users will be able to quickly and safely sell their smartphone to an Avito partner, without making any effort to communicate with potential buyers and sell the product on their own.
After the user submits an advertisement for the sale of the smartphone, Avito will send him an offer to buy the device. After that, the seller will need to verify the accuracy of the data about the phone. In case of agreement with the buyout price, which will be visible immediately, the user will be able to choose the method of delivering the gadget to the Avito partner who makes the buyout. You can take the phone yourself, as well as call an employee at home or at another convenient meeting place. The phone will be checked immediately and the payment for it will be transferred.
The redeemed smartphones will be available for purchase through Avito in the future. The platform partner will carry out pre-sale preparation – verification, diagnostics, as well as repair and elimination of defects, if any – and put the smartphone on Avito with diagnostic reports. The devices will have a warranty of three months to one year.
It will be possible to identify such a smartphone in the search results by a special Avito Guarantee badge, as well as find it using the filter of the same name and a special widget. In the ad, buyers will be able to see information on various verification parameters that guarantee the originality and good condition of the smartphone.
Enthusiast replaced the numeric keypad with a disk from an old phone
It would seem that it is almost impossible to change such a thing as a keyboard in any original way. However, the user under the nickname Squidgeefish succeeded. He added a real disk from an old wired telephone to a regular keyboard and made it all work.
The disk is placed on the right and performs the functions of a digital block – only numbers need to be entered by turning the dialer. And here a problem arises – such a system is analog, and any modern keyboard is digital. The enthusiast was able to connect the drive from the phone using the DFRobot Beetle Board based on the ATmega32U4 chip. This board is able to work with analog signals and at the same time supports a standard USB port.
I also had to experiment with the keyboard itself, because I had to cut the printed circuit board. And for aesthetics, the enthusiast added 3D-printed makers. The result is a rather strange and quirky, but fully functional keyboard. According to the source, the cost of the project was no more than $30.
At the same time, using the disk, you can enter not only numbers, but also special characters, such as the percent sign, brackets, and so on. And instead of the standard digital buttons, the enthusiast put a stub.
All leaders will lose, but Apple will strengthen. TrendForce published a forecast for the smartphone market
According to TrendForce analysts, in the third quarter of this year, the smartphone market sank by 11%, to 289 million units.
The market leaders were Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, but the current quarter will temporarily change the balance of power. According to analysts, Apple will increase its share from 17.6% to 24.6%, overtaking Samsung, which will occupy 20.2% against the current 22.2%. This is not the first time that Apple has become a market leader in the fourth quarter, which is explained by the release of a new generation of iPhone.
At the same time, it can be seen that the source predicts a decrease in market share for all leaders, except for Apple. It is worth noting that in this case, the source considers the sales of Oppo as sales including Realme, which is not typical. It also counts OnePlus sales, but that’s normal after a merger.
