For those of you who want to convert your Galaxy S7/S7 Edge or S8/S8 Plus into Galaxy S9 with latest Android 8.0 Oreo, you can do it with the Galaxy S9 ROM called “Sac23 S9 Ported ROM”. XDA user Sac23 has fully ported Galaxy S9 firmware to the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and Galaxy S8/S8 Plus. Apart from any features that require hardware from the S9, you will be able to fully enjoy S9 software on your S7/S7 Edge or S8/S8 Plus. This is Android 8.0 Oreo ROM with the latest Samsung Experience 9.0.

In this video, I show you how to make DIY dome glass tempered glass for your Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, S8 Plus, and you can also use this method on pretty much any smartphone to apply loca glue with tempered glass so your touch sensitivity and glare stays the same as if you didn’t have tempered glass on. I got this idea from the Dome Glass screen protector, which is good but I thought you could just do it yourself and save some money, especially if you have more than one phone.
For those of you thinking about buying a tempered glass protector for your Samsung Galaxy curved-screen phone like the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, or S8 Plus, you may want to know a few things before getting one. Now, many of tempered glass being sold on Amazon (or retail stores) currently are pretty much the same, just branded differently. Since my last DO NOT BUY REVIEW on tempered glass for Galaxy S7 Edge, tempered glass have evolved and they are very, very easy to install these days. Most of these new tempered glass come with an installation kit that allows you to easily install them within minutes.
For those of you who want to get Galaxy S9 ROM on your Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus, I do highly recommend using the Alexis ROM, which is a “full port” of a real Galaxy S9 Plus. What is a full port? Basically, all of the software has been slightly modified to work on older devices like Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. And best of all this ROM works on both Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. Of course, you WILL need an exyno-based Galaxy S8/S8 Plus with an unlocked bootloader. No, it will NOT WORK on any Snapdragon models such as all U.S. models(sorry, Samsung blocked it on purpose I have no idea why).
For those of you who may have took bad photos like all of us will do at some point in our life(or do it more often), here’s how to easily fix terrible, bad photos with blown-out highlights or too-dark scenes. If you have Galaxy Note 8, S8, or S8+ you can use the Photo Editor Pro which has load of options and customization just like Photoshop but better optimized for phones.
After pre-ordering from a bunch of different eBay sellers and trying to get a hold of blue color, I ended up ordering a Maple Gold dual SIM model SM-G950FD as blue models were either not available or way overpriced. The main reason I got this over the U.S. models is because the bootloader is unlocked on international models and you can easily root the phone.
In this tutorial, we show you stuff you absolutely MUST DO after buying the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus to take full advantage of its new features.
