I have been patiently waiting for a good deal on the international model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for few months now since Note 8 launch since it offers the better Exynos 8895 processor along with unlocked bootloader, meaning you can easily root and install custom ROMs. Well, around Black Friday I was able to pick up the SM-N950F/DS dual-SIM international model for about $779. (The price is even lower now at $739, check here) Certainly, this is a steal considering most U.S. retailers selling them at $950 or higher.

OnePlus has just launched their latest OnePlus 5T, featuring an upgrade 6.01-inch 18:9 aspect ratio screen with a design that eliminates bezels as is the current flaghship trend. As far as design and feel, OnePlus 5T is definitely up there, feels great in your hands and best of all, the metal back finish keeps nasty, greasy fingerprint marks out. This is definitely a phone you can use naked and also considering price is half of most flagships, you probably wouldn’t have to worry about dropping it so much.
Although I ordered my Google Pixel 2 XL right as pre-orders were opened, I had to wait over 2 weeks to get my phone as the Black & White version wasn’t shipping until a few days. While the wait was rather long, I had plenty time to play with the regular Pixel 2 and the wait was well worth it as I like the Black & White version much more. The Pixel 2 XL is the bigger brother of Pixel 2 and I am really digging it, especially the curved design.
In this video, I unbox a final, retail unit of LG V30, a T-Mobile variant.
After pre-ordering from a bunch of different eBay sellers and trying to get a hold of blue color, I ended up ordering a Maple Gold dual SIM model SM-G950FD as blue models were either not available or way overpriced. The main reason I got this over the U.S. models is because the bootloader is unlocked on international models and you can easily root the phone.
In this LG G6 unboxing, we unbox a retail Sprint unit and also talk about spies from Samsung and LG.
Here’s me unboxing the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, this is the T-Mobile retail unit I pre-ordered! I do have an international Galaxy S8 also on the way later this week.
Want to unlock your phone with your face? Yes, you can with Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus.
Here’s unboxing of LePro 3 I got on Black Friday for $250! Not bad of a deal considering it comes with latest Snapdragon 821 processor, 64GB of storage, 4070mAh battery, USB Type C earbuds, and all-metal unibody design. Camera isn’t the best I’ve tried and I would avoid this if you absolutely needed great camera but otherwise it is a terrific phone with great performance, long battery life, and stereo Dolby speakers.
OnePlus sent me their latest OnePlus 3T for review and while I skipped the regular OnePlus 3(mainly because there are way too many Android phones to cover these days), it was great to actually try their latest and best Android smartphone in person.
Okay, let’s go ahead and unbox this bad boy. Inside the box, you will find the Google Pixel XL, wow. This looks like a solid phone. There is a pouch with a bunch of manuals and SIM ejection tool. Pixel uses USB Type C so it comes with a USB Type C cable for connecting to your computer or charging. There’s also a USB Type C OTG adapter so you can transfer data from other smartphones or use a USB flash drive with it.
I got to play with the LG V20 for a full day and I have no doubt in my mind this maybe one of the best “phablets” of the year, especially if you are looking for a big smartphone that can do it all.
Motorola has launched their new Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Mods about a month back and we have finally got our hands on it for an unboxing.
