Super Mario Run on Android! [Gameplay]

Well, the long awaited Super Mario Run is finally available for Android.  Nintendo is rolling out to different countries as we speak and it seems that not all Android smartphones are supported yet.  I had to sideload Super Mario Run APK on some of my phones while my Pixel with latest Android O Preview was able to simply grab it on the Play Store.  If you don’t see it on the Play Store yet, simply grab the Super Mario Run APK over at APKQuick.com and install it with any of your favorite file browser app.

LG G6 Ringke Case!

Hi guys, today we are going to do a quick overview of Ringke’s new LG G6 Case lineup. First off, we got the Ringke Air “Prism” Case, which has prism pattern on the back of the phone. The back of this case reflects a lot of light in many directions and the pattern also helps you grip the phone better for people with buttery hands. The patterns reflect light in a really cool way and I thought that was really awesome, I could watch this all day long.

“Pacifica” – LG G6 4K Cinematic Test!

About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco.  Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs.  I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend.  Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.

Easy Home Automation w/ Google Home! [HOWTO]

Google Home is probably the best way to setup your home automation over Amazon’s popular Amazon Echo as it allows you to easily control every appliance in your home with voice.  What’s good with Google Home is that the voice-control also works with any Android smartphone running Google Assistant.  Google has rolled out Google Assistant for all Android devices running Marshmallow or Nougat, meaning you should be able to control your whole house with any Android smartphone if your phone runs Marshmallow or Nougat.

HTC U Ultra Unboxing & High Res Photos!

While I did not expect the HTC U Ultra to have any wow factor this year considering that its launch was pretty quiet with LG taking over the show with the launch of LG G6 at MWC, the HTC U Ultra actually impressed me a LOT.

Okay, so what is great with HTC U Ultra?

HTC U Ultra is the next flagship phablet that rivals bigger smartphones like LG V20 and Galaxy Note 7.  With Samsung’s Note 7 gone bizarre with its exploding batteries, there is now a hole to be filled and HTC U Ultra fits the bill for those of you who prefer larger-sized smartphones.   In fact, there’s no other flagship phone with 5.7-inch screen launched this year and last year other than the LG V20.  And no, I don’t consider cheap Chinese budget phones to be in the same phablet class (that’s reserver for the “budget” phablet class).

LG G6 Cases! [Spigen]

Spigen sent me their new line of cases for the LG G6.  As someone who has used Spigen cases for the last few years, I have grown to really like their cases as their designs are sleek to the eyes along with excellent protection at reasonable prices.  These cases are extremely well-built and provide excellent protection for your LG G6.  I have saved a ton of money every time I drop my phone and have yet to break a screen with these cases.  My favorite are the Liquid Crystal and the Slim Armor cases.

LG G6 4K Camera/Sound Test!

In this video, we test out LG G6’s 4K camera, both the regular and wide angle along with some sounds of ocean waves.

All shots were with the LG G6 and it was handheld. I used a pistol grip and smartphone mount.

Galaxy S8 & S8+ Official Specs Based on Leaks!

So, I have deduced the final Galaxy S8 & S8+ official specs based on confirmed leaks.

What we know so far that’s 99% true:

Galaxy S8 & S8+ will both have 18:9 or 18.5:9 aspect ratio.  Resolution can be 2880×1440 or 2960×1440.  There is a slight chance that 4K display comes with the phone perhaps later this year as another model for VR.  But Chinese users who have actually tried the S8 and S8+ are saying resolution is definitely not 4K.  The S8 & S8+ will have extra button in addition to volume buttons and power key.  This is definitely a mysterious button that I hope has cool functionality.  UPDATE: The extra button we presume is for the new AI (Artificial Intelligence) feature, thx Leonard Holley for the tip!
