How to Remove/Fix 60% Battery Limit on Galaxy Note 7!

(Above is my Note 7 fully charged to 100% and with green icon, this is an ORIGINAL Note 7, not the second edition.)

For those of you STILL using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, we highly recommend you to return it to Samsung or local carrier.  But there are instances like where you may not be able to get your full money back.  I bought my international Galaxy Note 7 on eBay and could not get my money back as it was over 30-days for the return period plus eBay doesn’t have policies protecting Galaxy Note 7 buyers.  You may be in the same boat where you acquired the Note 7 overseas and it may mean you are stuck with the phone.

LeEco LePro 3 Unboxing!

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 3T HQ Mode vs. Pixel HDR ON Mode Camera Comparison! [Low-Light]

In this camera comparison, we compare the OnePlus 3T in “HQ” mode (noise reduction) to Pixel XL’s “HDR ON” mode, which gives the best low-light photos on each phones and I also explain why this is for those of you who haven’t tested both phones yet.   In the end, the Google Pixel clearly wins out as overall winner of best low-light camera but the OnePlus 3T comes very close in certain situations and it is very impressive what the 3T can do.

OnePlus 3T Unboxing!

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.

I did get to try out the regular OnePlus 3 before and the OnePlus 3T hasn’t really changed much other than better specs like 16MP front camera(instead of 8MP) along with bigger 3400mAh battery(instead of 3000mAh) and latest Snapdragon 821 processor.  If you already own OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T isn’t much of an upgrade but if you are thinking about getting a dual-sim smartphone that costs less than $500, you may want to give this a try.
