Galaxy S6 vs. HTC One M9 SOT(SCREEN-ON-TIME) Battery Test!

The display is the most power-hungry hardware on your Android smartphone.  Most smartphones battery life efficiency can be determined by measuring the SOT(screen-on-time).  But is it possible to do this in a controlled environment?

If you wanted to get SOT (Screen-on-time) results accurately, you cannot do it unless you do it in an isolated environment testing the actual screen-on-time as people use their phones differently.


How to Fix HTC One M9 Camera Auto Focus with Manual Mode!

HTC One M9 has one big flaw, that its auto-focus does not work correctly.  5 out of 10 shots taken with the M9 results in over-exposed photos and depending on where you focus, the exposure changes constantly.  This is worse than the HTC One M7 and M8.  Since this is a matter of the camera’s auto focus not doing job correctly, it should be fixed with a camera firmware update by HTC in the future.


Galaxy S6 Edge vs. HTC One M9 – REAL WORLD Performance Test! [Game Loading Times]

If you’ve enjoyed watching our benchmark shootout between the fastest Android smartphones “right now”, you may want to also know that benchmarks aren’t necessarily the most accurate way to tell how fast a phone is.

In this real world performance test, we used several of the popular Android games like Clash of Clans, Asphalt 8, Angry Birds, and Grand Theft Auto to test out the game loading times.


Galaxy S6 vs S6 Edge vs HTC One M9 vs G Flex 2 Antutu Test!

For those of you wondering the performance differences between the Exynos 7420 processor on the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the HTC One M9/LG G Flex 2, we did a bunch of Antutu benchmark tests to find out.

Overall, the Exynos 7420 beat out the Qualcomm 810 in pretty much all of the tests within Antutu benchmark app.  What we wanted to really find out was the heating issues with LG G Flex 2, which causes the phone to lag when playing games for a long time or using the phone in very hot weather.


How to Disassemble Galaxy S6 Edge for Screen Replacement!

For those of you who want to replace the screen or other parts like the camera or micro-USB port on your Galaxy S6 Edge, you will want to know how to disassemble and re-assemble the device.

*Note – Disassembly for Galaxy S6 should also be very similar to this.

Parts needed:

Suction cup – You can use this gel suction cup car mount, which you can also use as car mount afterwards. #00 screw driver – This is the standard size screw driver used on most Android smartphones.  You can also grab one at your local hardware store, look for #00. Guitar picks or plastic tools – Grab some guitar picks or plastic tools for smartphone repair, DO NOT USE ANY METAL TOOLS when disassembling your phone other than for unscrewing. Hair dryer or heat gun – I recommend heat gun but you can also use a hair dryer.

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge FULL Review!

Do you want the fastest phone in the world?

Do you want a phone that can do a lot of things for you?

Do you want a phone that’s not huge like Galaxy Note?

Then you may want to get the Galaxy S6 or the S6 Edge.

First, let’s talk about the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge screen. The screen on both of these bad boys feature a 5.1” 2560×1440 pixels of resolution, that’s 577ppi or 577 pixels per inch. It looks beautiful and your eyes probably won’t be able to process all of those pixels anyways.  If you want the best screen with highest pixel density, the S6 and the S6 Edge have it.  And yes, Gorilla Glass 4 is now used, which means less scratches on your screen and also more durability.
