Galaxy Note 7 Waterproof Test in HOT Spa for an HOUR!

Here’s an extreme test of Galaxy Note 7’s IP68 waterproof design, we put the phone in 100+ degree of hot spa water for an HOUR!  Will it blow up?

Many waterproof tests have been done in the past and the Galaxy S7 Edge (which has same waterproof design as Note 7) lived up to freeze tests, but there are no previous waterproof tests involving high temperatures with long hours in water.

Pixel Launcher APK Leaked!

Google’s new Pixel smartphones are on its way soon.  While you wait, you can already enjoy the new Pixel Launcher on your Android device by installing the leaked APK files.

What’s new?

First, Pixel Launcher comes with a permanent clock at top right along with Google search icon (also permanent) at top-left.  You will have full landscape rotation (must enable in settings) with the new launcher, which isn’t exactly “impressive” but still cool to have.

Galaxy Note 7 Cases! [CruzerLite]

It’s been almost 5 years since I broke the screen on my Galaxy S3.  Ever since then, I have used a case on all of my smartphones and have never cracked the screen.  Well, a few weeks back I forgot to put the case back on while using my Honor 8 and dropped it.  Even though it was a very small 6-inch drop, it fell face down into one of stones in my backyard, causing the screen to crack.

How to Root Galaxy Note 7! [Exynos]

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, currently you can root Exynos-based models of Galaxy Note 7 including the SM-N930F, SM-N930FD, and Korean SM-N930K/S/L.  U.S. models based on Qualcomm are not yet supported such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon as they have locked bootloaders.  If you absolutely want root on your Note 7 and you have AT&T, T-Mobile, or any other GSM carrier in the U.S., you can grab the SM-N930F or SM-N930FD model, which work flawless on GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile. (You can grab SM-N930FD on eBay for around $699 also much cheaper.)
