Sony Xperia Z3 & Z3 Compact Screen Recording

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact blackCapturing a screenshot or what is on your smartphone’s screen has been a feature of modern smartphones for a couple of years now.

Normally with an Android device, press and hold the power button and the volume down key at the same time and the image is captured.  You can then share this, edit it or do what you like.

This is often handy for sharing key bits of information and more with friends and colleagues.

Screen recording became a feature of the latter version of Android but to do it was not simple at all really.

However, this has changed with the Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact.  Sony have built screen recording functionality that actually leaves you with a video at the end of it that you can share.

The advantages of this are great, especially if you wish to demonstrate something to someone.  This is further aided by the fact that when doing this on the Sony it records sounds the phone makes as well as other sounds from the phones microphones as well as video through the front facing camera.

Make your smartphone triple SIM

Use three SIM cards in one phone

In this video, our friend veryannoyingname demonstrates a $6 Triple SIM adaptor from ebay being used with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

With a Triple SIM adaptor, you can fit three SIM cards into your handset and switch between them using an app, which is automatically installed when you insert the adaptor. There’s no need to reboot your handsets or manually adjust the SIM cards. The app can even be configured to automatically switch between the SIM cards at specified times.

As is, the SIM cards will not operate simultaneously; you need to use them on an individual basis. The video mentions that you could use all three at the same time by using a Bluetooth accessory, although mobile data will not work if SIM cards are used simultaneously. If the SIM cards are used separately, mobile data should work fine on both 3G and 4G.

This is a handy accessory if you have more than one mobile tariff, to take advantage of free text and call bundles, for example. The adaptor demonstrated here is advertised as an iPhone 4G accessory, although it should be compatible with any handset that uses a microSIM. The adaptor connects to the microSIM slot and there are then two extra ports to insert normal sized SIM cards.
