Huawei P9 Lite – Camera starts slowly after Android 7.0 update

The latest update for Huawei P9 Lite brings some bad news about your camera, because the camera is now very slow when it is started for first the time after a while.

I tried to make a full reset for the phone but with no results. I locked the camera app in background but also any results. Also, it is very important the location where the images are saved. If you use the internal memory of the phone the camera will open a lot more faster in comparison if we choose to save images/ video on the external flash drive (microSD card).

In conclusion, the best solution to make the camera of your Huawei P9 Lite faster is to choose to save images/ videos on the internal memory.

To do that, open Camera App from your phone, slide to left, and unchecked Priority save in SD card.

Eco charge your Nokia N8 with a hamster (video)

Eco charge your Nokia N8 with a hamster (video)

Yes, is true, now you can watch your hamster running on the wheel and in the same time charge your phone.

This idea belongs to Peter Ash and was promoted on his GCSE coursework. But how this idea was born?

Well, all started in 2005 when his sister had a hamster named Elvis. She started to complain about how energetic Elvis was, she couldn’t sleep at night because he wouldn’t stop playing in his wheel. So, Peter thought to use that energy in a constructive way and created a “Hamster phone charger” using a turbine and a few gears. Now both Elvis and Peter are happy, but i don’t know what to say about Peter’s sister.
