NFC is a wireless data transfer method that allows smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices to share data at close range. NFC technology supports contactless payments through mobile wallets. Recently a Huawei Mate 20 Pro user reported that they are facing some bug after upgrading to HarmonyOS.

As per the user, the NFC card swiping function fails for some card readers and users suspect that it could be due to the recent HarmonyOS update. They also mention the following issue they exactly facing:

  • The mobile phone can automatically recognize the card reader device and automatically pop up the card swiping interface, but the card reader does not respond.
  • At this moment, open the phone settings go-to NFC then defaults payment application, select Huawei, then other application, now another wallet, and then select back to Huawei wallet – Swipe the card again, the card reader can recognize it normally, But it will again be invalid if the card is switched in process. You need to swipe the card as default, and then follow the above steps again to have it recognized.

The owner is really upset with the issue occurring in the Mate 20 Pro smartphone after the latest update. Notably, some other users replied with some suggestions that must check the NFC menu setting is correct or not to do so steps are mentioned below.

  • Open settings
  • Click on more
  • And then NFC
  • Then the security chip need to select the built-in security chip
  • Then open the default payment application
  • Select Huawei Wallet
  • For EMUI 8.0 and later version
  • Go to settings
  • Then Device connection
  • Open NFC, the default payment application selects Huawei wallet

Aside of these certain issues, other smartphone consumers haven’t been facing such issues in the current scenarios.

Android 13 QPR1 beta 3.1 removes Vo5G on some Pixel 7



Android 13 beta

A few days ago, Google rolled out Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 for beta testers, and some users reported losing Vo5G on some Google Pixel 7 smartphones. Google is rolling out the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 patch (T1B3.221003.008) for Pixel 4a, 5, 5a, 6, 6 Pro, 6a, 7, and 7 Pro series devices.


Vo5G is similar to the voice in today’s 4G networks. In 4G LTE, voice calls are implemented as end-to-end Voice over IP (VoIP) connections managed by an IMS core. Voice and video communication services in these networks ride on top of the IP data connection. When the call happens over LTE, it is called Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and when it is over Wi-Fi, it is known as Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi).


A Pixel 7 user on Reddit wrote: “Just noticed that it’s gone now, was there in beta 3.0 – anyone else?” Another user in the comment replied with a solution that the Android 13 QPR1 beta 3.1 Vo5G issue may require it to re-enable manually.

Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap feature broke after Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade



Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap Android 13 Beta

Android 13 QPR1 beta 3 is rolling for the Pixel smartphones but it looks like the firmware isn’t worth upgrading. The latest information reveals that a Pixel 7 Pro user cannot use the Double-Tap feature after installing the Android 13 Beta 3 update.

It’s been a week since Google released the respective update for its Pixel devices. Besides, this rollout was particularly for the Pixel 7 phones. But instead of benefits, the users are dealing with some severe issues on their devices.

Recently, a user reported that his Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap feature isn’t responding after the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade. Though it was all good before the beta installation. Yet, after the update procedure, the feature stopped working.

“I have the Gesture – Double-Tap, back of my Pixel 7 Pro device to open the camera app. It worked fine before I added the beta and I thought it was still working. But the next day, when I swapped to a new phone case, the Double-Tap does nothing.”


The user immediately removed new cover to check whether the problem was with the phone or the case. Yet, the Double-Tap feature didn’t work.

On the other hand, the user tried tapping the phone’s back without the cover. Moreover, he altered the Gesture’s settings and reset the feature. But even after several attempts, the respective feature remained stagnant.

After this incident, many users appeared on the forum to discuss the issue. While some users were facing the same defect, a few users said that everything is alright with their Pixel & device.

Many more such issues:

It’s not the first time when the issue surfaced on Android 13 QPR1 beta 3 updates. So far, we come across many users confronting some or the other issue after the respective upgrade. Perhaps, the company hasn’t uttered any word on this matter. Let’s see whether this is the last beta rollout or if the company will release more beta updates to fix these issues.

An Android 13 user installed October 2022 Google Play update and shocked to see battery decline



Google Play October 2022 update battery decline

October 2022 update for the Google Play system packs several thoughtful features, but it looks like these features have become the reason for the battery decline of devices.

A user recently reached the Reddit forum and described the battery decline issues due to the October 2022 Google Play update. As per the statements, there was a huge battery loss after the installation of the latest Google Play iteration.

Consequently, the user restarted his device to install the October 2022 firmware. However, this restart suddenly dropped the battery level from 95 percent to 89 percent. Shockingly, there was an instant battery low of 6 percent.

Although, there is some battery consumption while installing new firmware. Therefore, it is recommended to have ample battery amount in the device. But, impulsive battery drainage just after the update has puzzled the user.


To provide a reason for this issue, an individual said that the 95% may have been a system estimate. Thereafter the processors would have reevaluated it and showed a more accurate value.

However, this reasoning didn’t satisfy the sufferer much. Instead, the user said that he used to restart his phone every day. Hence, accuracy won’t be a reason for this decline. But it could be bugs and defects of the new firmware that is disturbing the adaptive charging and its calculation.

October 2022 Google Play System Update

It’s important to draw our attention to the October 2022 Google Play system update for a while. With the onset of this month, the company has published the Android 13 October 2022 Play System Update for its users.

In this latest package, the company has added several thoughtful features and an interesting Android TV patch reminder. Notably, there were some vital amendments in the performance and network usage.


And the irony is, Google has optimized the installation operations for the Play Store and related systems. As a result, it was expected to allow faster and more reliable downloads and installation.

But things have gone quite opposite in this aspect. As per the user’s report, the installation procedure of the latest update has badly affected the device’s battery.

Could be a device issue?

Every new firmware appears on the device surface with some or the other issues. Perhaps, some easy steps and techniques resolve those issues without consuming more days. Moreover, we hadn’t found many users complaining about this part.

Thus, we could assume that there might be some fault with the device due to which the battery showed an instant decline. Yet we cannot ignore the statement, that this issue came in front of the user while installing the latest update.


It would be worth seeing whether we get any more such issues or any other defects with the same update or not.

October 2022 Google Play Update – Changelog

As mentioned, the newest Google Play system update offers a bunch of new features and optimizes. Significantly, the company has focused on Android TV this time by adding a patch reminder. Ultimately, you don’t need to check your smartphone timely for Android TV Updates.

Now you can set a reminder that will recall you about the latest updates by popping up a dialog box on the screen. You can check the full changelog on the below-given link.
