Galaxy S9 Plus Unboxing! [Exynos/Coral Blue]

After waiting patiently on an eBay order that never made it on time, I finally got hands on a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus through another eBay seller.  And no, this year I am not getting any U.S. Snapdragon models as they have locked bootloaders.(See Which Model is Best for Galaxy S9/S9+ for Root? if you want to root your S9 or S9+)  But I was able to finally get hands on a Coral Blue color which was rather surprising since previous Galaxy phones were literally impossible to get a blue version.

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.

Galaxy S9/S9+ Cases from Spigen!

Check out Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus cases from Spigen.   These are the latest cases for the Samsung flagship and depending on your needs, one of them could suit you.  I find the clear cases much more stickier and less prone to dropping while the smooth-surfaced cases have very soft feel, very therapeutic.   And if you tend to drop your phone often, check out Spigen’s thicker cases which will prevent you from cracking your brand new S9 or S9 Plus.

Galaxy S9 ROM for Galaxy S8/S8 Plus!

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).
