I finally got hands on Google’s new Project Fi, which is a new type of carrier-switching smartphone plan from Google. Basically, Google uses T-Mobile and Sprint’s network to give you best of both worlds at a low monthly cost. The best part about Google Fi is that you only pay for data that you use and all unused data carryover to the month. While carriers like AT&T do carryover, their carryovers expire after only a month while Google allows you to carry over as long as you want. In essence, it’s somewhat prepaid data plan.
In today’s video, we will be comparing the cameras of the OnePlus Two vs. LG G4 and the Galaxy S6. Since the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 are the two best cameras on the market, this should show you real world performance differences between the OnePlus Two and best of the market right now. And since Note 5 has the same camera as the Galaxy S6, you can assume the results of S6 are nearly identical for Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus.
First, we have the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive. This is one of the fastest USB flash drives you can buy for the money you spend, currently the 64GB version is being sold for just $38 on Amazon. In real world usage, I found I get about 190Mb/s for read and 150Mb/s for write to my PC. Overall, that’s really good for a USB 3.0 flash drive that cost me less than $40. If you use tend to transfer a lot of data using USB flash drive, this may definitely one of the best deals right now. Of course, if you have an OTG cable, you can hook it up to your Android device, which I got pretty decent speeds of 38Mb/s for read and 40Mb/s for write.
For this week’s green news, we discuss the Qualcomm 820 quad-core processor, New Nexus 5/6 leaks, and Android Stagefright exploit and how to fix it easily.
Is your internet slow?
Are you paying for 100Mbps download speeds yet you only get 20Mbps on your Android smartphone?
Let me go into what’s on my phone this week and talk about some of the apps I am using this week. This week, I have both the Android Wear and Samsung Gear apps installed for my LG Urbane watch and Gear S watch. Android Wear app doesn’t let you pair more than one watch at a time but if you have an Android Wear watch and Samsung watch, you will be able to use two watches simultaneously. I find this part kinda odd, I wish Android Wear allows you to pair multiple watches and I am sure those of you super high on Android would like to wear different watches for different outfits.
When I first got the Amazon Echo, it was a pretty cool device that you could talk to when you are bored but there were limits to the device as I was used to doing complex things with my Google Now already. Of course, I also find playing music rather convenient, especially when I am doing dishes, I can turn on music without bothering to dry my hands, I really like that. But at the price of near $200, is this gadget worth it?
If you want to make a high quality 4K timelapse on your Android smartphone, you will definitely want to use the Camera FV-5 as it comes with intervalometer (that automatically takes photos for the interval you set). There are apps that make timelapse videos for you but the quality you get out of them will be nowhere near doing it this way by taking our photos then post-process them with desktop software Adobe Effects. And if your Android smartphone supports RAW images (like LG G4, OnePlus One, Nexus 5/6), you will have more control over your images in your final edit, even remove noise from low-light shots.
This morning I got up and found that the OnePlus Two invites are HERE! If you have been following HighOnAndroid.com since last year, you may remember how OnePlus One invite system sucked. Well, this year, the invite system is a bit different. For those of you who sign up early, you will be able to get your hands on the OnePlus Two simply by signing up.
