Does OnePlus 6T Work on Verizon & T-Mobile 4G LTE Simultaneously?

Does OnePlus 6T work on Verizon & T-Mobile 4G LTE simultaneously?   When OnePlus 6T was announced with full support for T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network along with support for Verizon, I was really interested if the OnePlus 6T can work on both Verizon & T-Mobile 4G LTE simultaneously.  This is because I have unlimited plan on both T-Mobile & Verizon and I don’t like carrying two phones.  Whenever I drop to dead spots with T-Mobile here in SF Bay Area(which happens quite often), I would switch to my other smartphone with Verizon SIM card.  With the OnePlus 6T, this is going to allow me to carry around just one smartphone and use both networks.

Pixel 3 ROM for Xiaomi Mi 8! [FULL Conversion]

Pixel 3 ROM for Xiaomi Mi 8 by XDA user ArGraur is HERE to give you FULL conversion from a real Pixel 3 firmware.  While I have installed countless custom ROMs on various different Android smartphones, this one certainly is special because it allows you to fully enjoy Pixel 3 features on a phone that costs less than half as much($420 Xiaomi Mi 8 vs. $899 Pixel 3 XL).   Now, while not EVERYTHING works but almost everything works on the Pixel 3 ROM for the Xiaomi Mi 8.

LineageOS 16 ROM for Xiaomi Mi8!

LineageOS 16 ROM for Xiaomi Mi8 is probably the first custom ROM you want to try on your Mi8, especially if you want to run something more closer to stock Android like Pixel 3 with latest Android 9.0 Pie.  Although MIUI isn’t bad, personally I am more used to stock Android experience and I really hate the iPhone-like MIUI launcher.  Also, menus are way different on MIUI and I wanted to run a software that I am more used to.

How to Convert AT&T/Sprint/Verizon LG G6 to Canadian!

In this tutorial, I show you(well more like make a video while doing it) how to convert AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon LG G6 to Canadian. For AT&T & Sprint users, this will also FULLY unlock your SIM. For Verizon, I think it actually unlocks all the GSM bands(not 100% sure yet) and also gets rid of Verizon bloatware/warning messages.  You WILL need a Windows computer as LG tools are only for Windows.

Pixel 3 vs LG V40 Camera Comparison!

Over the weekend, I took the Pixel 3 and the LG V40 out to an ice rink in San Francisco and took many photos and videos.  This was actually pretty interesting comparison as I didn’t expect the LG V40 to come anywhere near the Pixel 3, which probably is the king of smartphone photography.  For videos, both seemed to do well with stabilization, I really didn’t see either cameras doing better than another other than LG V40 having 2 extra back cameras, which gives you a lot more options.

Google Pixel 3XL Unboxing! [HighOnAndroid]

Google Pixel 3XL Unboxing! This is the official HighOnAndroid unboxing of Google’s latest Pixel 3XL. Should you get it? I think the price is a bit high but you do get the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, official IP68 rating, wireless charging, and an extra wide-angle front camera. For Pixel 2XL users, this may not be worth the upgrade but for everyone else, this is definitely the best Google phone your money can buy.
