AMAZING Galaxy S9 960fps SUPER Slow Motion Golf Happy Gilmore Style!

Here’s Galaxy S9 960fps SUPER slow motion me doing some golf trick shots in happy gilmore style.  While the Galaxy S9 super slow motion mode is not perfect as it only auto-captures when things in its square box is moving, it does quite well in capturing super slow motion actions if you don’t have someone else to take the video for you.  I only wish the square box could be set to custom locations and it would make it perfect.

Android 8.1 Oreo + Root for Galaxy Note 3! [Lineage OS 15.1 ROM]

For those of you who want to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo, you are in luck as there is a stable version of Lineage OS 15.1 ROM that you can run on it if you have one of the models supported.  While Samsung has stopped updating stock firmware since Android 5.0 Lollipop, you can still grab the latest and best Android 8.1 Oreo and easily install it.  Now, this is an AOSP ROM(What is AOSP?), meaning you won’t be able to get any TouchWiz apps (Samsung apps that depend on Samsung firmware).  As far as the S-Pen goes, it still works you will just have to use a 3rd party app(such as Squid) which work just the same.

Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL Low-Light 4K Video Comparison!

Galaxy S9 Plus camera has F1.5 which probably is best shown by doing a video comparison.  In this video comparison, we take up the Galaxy S9 Plus again Pixel 2 XL and see which one does better in low-light and near darkness.  Of course, the results are definitely impressive as the S9 Plus kills Pixel 2 XL in terms of clarity, level of noise, and exposure.  Galaxy smartphones have always had one of the best(if not the best) performance when it comes to the video category and the Galaxy S9/S9+ has definitely stepped up another level with its F1.5 over last year’s F1.7.  Now, I am actually not sure how much of improvement that is so we will do another test on that soon.  Stay tuned!

Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL Camera Comparison! [Part II][Auto Mode/Portrait Mode]

In my last camera comparison between the Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL, a lot of people complained that I was using F1.5 Pro mode during daylight scenes and it probably wasn’t fair since many of the shots from S9+ came out a bit overexposed as the HDR is not enabled in Pro mode.  While F1.5 Pro mode is certainly not useful at all times especially when there is too much light, my initial test was to test out amount of bokeh with F1.5, not so much with HDR.

Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL Camera Comparison! [Part 1][Low-Light/bokeh]

Pixel 2 series (Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL have identical cameras) are the king of smartphone photography and in this camera comparison, we are going to see if Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 Plus can do better.   While I was very excited for the new F1.5 aperture on the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus, after doing some tests it does not live up to expectations.

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.

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.
