OnePlus 6 Unboxing & Review Quickie!

This is unboxing of the all-new OnePlus 6 smartphone & review quickie after using it for about 24-hours.  The OnePlus 6 comes with latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 or 8GB of RAM, 64 to 256GB of storage, 6.28-inch AMOLED screen w/ 19:9 ratio, and dual SIM sluts.  After fondling with the new OnePlus 6 for about a day, I think I may have found a great smartphone I can recommend for under $600 that is not a Samsung or LG.

How to Install/Switch to Magisk Root on Galaxy S9/S9 Plus!

For those of you who have rooted your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus using our root guide, you may have rooted with the SuperSU app as Magisk was not compatible with Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus.  Well, there is a modified version of Magisk that you can use now which is 100% compatible.  If you have not yet rooted your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, you can follow our existing root guide here but simply use the new modified Magisk instead of SuperSU and you will have Magisk root instead of SuperSU on your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus.

DO NOT USE Waterproof Smartphone in Sea Salt Water!

On my recent trip to Hawaii, I broke two of my smartphones while using them in sea salt water to take videos of corals while snorkeling, I broke my Galaxy S9 Plus and my Pixel 2 XL.  In this video, I show you what happens if your smartphone seal breaks in sea salt water and also how to minimize damage from salt water corrosion by disassembling both my S9 Plus and Pixel 2 XL.  I’ve taken all my waterproof phones(with IP67 or IP68 rating) diving in swimming pools and even in 100+ degree temp spa many times but I have NEVER actually broken a smartphone from water until last week.

LG G6 Underwater Snorkeling Test!

Here’s an underwater snorkeling test with the LG G6. Yes IP68 rating is good enough to snorkel with it in sea salt water, just keep your phone no more than 5 feet underwater and you should be fine. Also rinse your phone off with fresh water after as salt left on the phone can make your seals degrade if you leave it. This isn’t my first time snorkeling with a waterproof phone, I used Galaxy S5 a few years back in Thailand, the phone still works even years later and still waterproof, you can check it out here.

Galaxy S9+ & DJI Mavic Pro 4K Test in Maui!

In this 4K camera test, I used the Samsung Galaxy S9+ for all shots except for airborne shots which I used the DJI Mavic Pro.  I felt like this is very good combination for those of you who want to take some 4K videos on the go.  Although I do have nicer cameras like the GH5 and A7rii, I wanted to see if I can get some high-quality shots with my smartphone.  I also used the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal to stabilize the Galaxy S9+, which comes in very handy also.
