As we move into Autumn, now’s the time to explore and adventure more. With your phone by your side as you go, here’s how you can make the most out of the change of seasons, with cooler weather on the way.

As Autumn arrives, the weather starts to cool down. Now is the time for you to enjoy both outdoor and indoor activities more, with less of the heat. Your phone will be with you wherever you go, and there are many ways to use it to enhance your experiences. Here’s some suggestions from TECNO and itel to make the most of Autumn.

Capture the Beauty of the Changing Season

With Autumn comes leaves changing to magnificent colours. Oranges, reds and yellows create a picturesque scene worthy of being captured by photo and video and shown off on social media. A walk in your local park or going on a hike (if you prefer longer distances and have the fitness to do so) will reveal beautiful scenes to you. The best part is that scenery doesn’t move, allowing you time to plan and capture the perfect picture or video to highlight the breathtaking colours that come with the change of season. Play around with the camera settings and features available on your device (which TECNO phones have many of) to allow the tech to do most of the work for you when it comes to capturing content.

Embark on a New Adventure

There are many places and things to explore in the world around you, and they don’t necessarily have to cost a lot. Browse through Google Maps or simply Google Search to find

places of interest that you haven’t visited before and then plan an outing. Perhaps its an educational trip to a museum or national heritage site, or a stroll through a park checking out the birdlife, or even something as simple as a coffee at a quirky café. Both TECNO and itel phones come pre-loaded with Google Mobile Services, which make this exercise easier.

Try Something New in the Kitchen

With family and friends coming around to your home for an Easter get-together, or simply just coming to visit, why not try making something new for them to eat and drink. Autumn fruits include apples, avocados, bananas, figs, grapes and much more, and this season is the perfect time for you to whip up a new treat. And who can forget about the Autumn favourites pumpkin and squash! Use Google to look up Autumn recipes on your phone (and you can store them for future reference on your phone as well), or search through the many cooking apps available on app stores (including TECNO and itel’s Palm Store, or Google Play), and fall in love with seasonal cooking.

Binge Watch your Favourite Series and Movies

With the cooler weather coming, perhaps you don’t want to venture outdoors. Why not stay in and enjoy your chosen form of entertainment. Watching your favourite movies and series has never been easier on your phone. Multiple streaming apps allow you access to them, and the best part is that you can take them with you wherever you go. Like mobile gaming, which may be more of your thing when it comes to entertainment. Browse through the app stores and explore the thousands of available apps. You never know what you will find.


TECNO and itel devices are available from select retail partners, including Ackermans, Dunns, Edgars, Game, HiFi Corp, Jet, Makro, Mr Price, PEP, Pick n Pay, Shoprite, TFG, Vodacom and Woolworths (availability varies per retailer per product and while stocks last).

Keep an eye out for special offers that frequently happen for both TECNO and itel, which bring quality and reliable devices at an even better price.
