Android Gadgets of the Week! [#1]

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.

What’s on My Phone #2 – Chrome Remote Desktop, Wemo, Nest! [Apps]

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.

Amazon Echo Review & Voice Controlled Home Automation HOWTO w/ WeMo!

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?

How to Make 4K Timelapse Video w/ Android and Camera FV-5!

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.

OnePlus Two Invites are HERE!

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.

How to Edit Raw Images on Android! [Lightroom App]

For those of  you who have bought a new smartphone or own one with RAW image capabilities (LG G4, Galaxy S6 with Android 5.1.1, Nexus 5/6), you may want to know that you can do much more with RAW images then standard JPEG (JPG) image files.

So, what is the difference between RAW and JPEG?
