After waiting for almost two weeks , I finally got the ZTE Open phone and thought to write a brief overview .
I bought this phone mainly to play a little with FirefoxOS and experience developing apps for this platform. So this review is going to focus primarily on the development of this phone especially in terms of its openness (since I haven’t had the time to actually develop for it just yet) .
If your thinking of buying this phone for daily use my recommendation is don’t!.
Mozilla claims that it directs its phones for “emerging markets” which is a nice way to say poor people . From my short time handling the ZTE its slow, the touch is not very accurate, the 2 mp camera has such a low quality that I doubt its even 2 mp, and I’m sure you can get a cheaper android phone that will be way better.
I decided its time to create my long delayed XKCD based generator with hebrew words.
This Generator is using about 4,500 giving a little bit more than 12 bits of entropy per word, so with only 6 words you can have a pretty strong password
Please move Your mouse or swipe the screen continuously to generate random Data
I guess this won’t have a lot of importance for non hebrew speakers but if you know a bit of coding its easy to add or change the wordlist to any other language so check the git hub repo – https://github.com/yonjah/Naomi-85-SPG
If you are wondering about the name it is because my girlfriend is insisting of using a really weak passwords like here name and birth year. this small peace of software is dedicated to her so she will never use this password again.
