For those of you who want to take advantage of Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus new “fast” wireless charging feature, you will need to get a Fast Charge Wireless Charger.  Now, you will also need to pair it with a fast charge adapter (9V 1.65A) otherwise it won’t actually fast charge wirelessly.  Also, this charge is backward-compatible with normal wireless charging and will auto-switch if you are using a smartphone that doesn’t support fast wireless charging (like Galaxy S6).

Project Fi Unboxing & Setup on Rooted Nexus 6!

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.

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.
