How to Connect USB Flash Drive & SSD to USB Type C on Android! [OTG]

In this tutorial, we show you how to connect various different USB devices like a USB flash drive, SSD, mouse, or even a keyboard to Android devices using USB Type C using OTG cable.

Since newer smartphones like LG G5, Nexus 6P/5X, and One Plus Two use USB Type C, you will need to grab a USB Type C OTG cable.  (We recommend the iXCC USB Type C OTG cable.)  You can also use regular USB Type B OTG cable with adapter but the file transfer speeds will be much slower so we don’t recommend it.

Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Review! [After A Month]

I want to start this review out by focusing on what I like most then pointing out problems and things you may want to consider when buying them.

What’s Great about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge?

First of all, both Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge feature IP68 water resistant rating which is probably the coolest feature. In fact, what’s amazing is that these phones can survive harshest conditions, even surviving a full wash cycle in my LG washer and actually being froze in my freezer, you can check out those videos on my channel. Okay, maybe this isn’t a feature you may be interested in but if it is, may be you live in Seattle where it rains often or you like to play with water often, this could potentially be the reason to buy a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge.  Think of all the possibilities, you can use your phone in the rain, record videos underwater, watch youtube videos in the shower, etc…etc…

HTC 10 Cases! [Spigen]

Spigen sent us a bunch of their latest cases for the HTC 10, here’s our quick round-up overview.

(Click on photos below to enlarge!)

Spigen Crystal Shell Case for HTC 10 – My favorite of them all, this is a single layer case that has a rock-hard shell with extra protection in the corners.  This case is not too thick, transparent to show off the natural colors of your HTC 10, and also protects your phone very well with its hardened TPU.

Galaxy S7 Edge EXTREME Benchmark Test with ICE!

In this EXTREME benchmark test, we put the Galaxy S7 Edge under water with LOTS of ICE to lower its CPU temperature and maximize performance.

Please DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

What we found was very interesting, the international S7 Edge with Exynos 8890 didn’t see as much improvement with Antutu scores of 134,327 while the U.S. S7 Edge with Qualcomm 820 scored 138,520 on Antutu.
