Big annoyance: Facebook services offline

Last week Facebook had again Probleme with his services. The social media platforms Facebook with its Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram were unavailable for a full six hours. The cause was, according to IT experts ProI'm having trouble resolving Facebook's DNS servers.

At around midnight on the following day, the services were available again, albeit somewhat limited. In the morning everything had gone smoothly again. You can read the whole process again in our news ticker.

By the way: last Friday there was another short outage of all Facebook services.

Great smartphone without Google services: the Huawei P50 Pro review

Our editor Fabian Menzel has the Huawei P50 in great detail for you in the Provariant and wrote down his experience with the smartphone in a test report.

Fabian is of the opinion that the smartphone is a very good smartphone with good specifications all round. However, the model lacks the availability and 5G connectivity, which is becoming increasingly important, especially in Germany. A major weak point is the lack of installation of services from Google.

However, if you are a fan of Huawei and can do without Google services, you can still take a look at this model. You can read more and more in detail review report.
