Galaxy S6/S6 Edge Android 8.1 Oreo + Root! [Review & Install Guide]

Samsung has stopped updating the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge since Android 7.0 Nougat and for those of you who want to still get latest Android 8.1 Oreo + root, here’s how to do it.  Now, this is NOT a Samsung Touchwiz firmware, rather custom ROM or AOSP(What is AOSP?)  But you will get much better performance and battery life over Samsung Touchwiz plus the latest and great Android 8.1 Oreo so I don’t see why not.  The NexusOS ROM comes with all the standard features of latest Android 8.1 Oreo and a few additions like Always On Display.

Google Mesh Wifi vs. Linksys Velop Review & Comparison!

About a month ago, I installed a new wireless mesh system using Linksys Velop.  Well, I also installed Google Mesh WiFi over at my parent’s house and was surprised by faster setup and very good signals in a house that’s twice bigger than mine.  Although Linksys Velop has been working pretty well, I’ve had some issues where it slows down to a crawl at times even though my speed tests are very fast(near 100Mbps).

MeE Robot Review! – Home Security Surveillance Robot w/ Camera

Recently I became obsessed with home security in my house.  Although I have about a dozen cameras all over my house, they are useless in terms of being able to see what my daughter is doing when I am away from home as she is usually hanging out in her bedroom where there are no security cameras.  Well, I thought it would be great to purchase a robot with a camera and upon doing some research on Amazon, I ended up buying the MeE robot, which is exactly that.  I also wanted the ability to talk to my daughter from the camera robot and this one does that also.

Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL Spigen Case Review!

Spigen sent me some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL cases, here’s a quick review.

Spigen Liquid Crystal Case has been my all-time favorite for many phones and I love the transparency of the case so I can see through yet it is not bulky and has good lip for protecting the screen.

Pixel 2 XL Unboxing & 24-Hour Review! [Black & White]

Although I ordered my Google Pixel 2 XL right as pre-orders were opened, I had to wait over 2 weeks to get my phone as the Black & White version wasn’t shipping until a few days.  While the wait was rather long, I had plenty time to play with the regular Pixel 2 and the wait was well worth it as I like the Black & White version much more.  The Pixel 2 XL is the bigger brother of Pixel 2 and I am really digging it, especially the curved design.
