This year, I’ve decided not to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, here’s my Top 5 reasons why.
Probably the biggest smartphone scam that’s been going around for at least the last 10 years is on eBay is people buying phones on carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon then claim insurance on them(so they get a new phone for free) after 3-6 months after you buy the phone. The reason why this scam works is because eBay itself ONLY guarantees you for 30-days at maximum(if seller does) and by the time your phone is blacklisted 3 to 6 months later, eBay is no longer responsible for the blacklisted phone. It is actually the perfect scammer for scammers out there but if you are just trying to get a brand, new phone for a bit cheaper then buying at the stores, you may end up paying hundred of dollars more.
Ever since I got my Nest thermostat, I thought it was really cool and saved me a ton of energy when I wasn’t home. Plus, with the introduction of Google Home, I was able to control my thermostat with my voice. Well, those are great things but did you know installing Nest voids warranty on most HVAC heater/AC systems?
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.
In my recent unboxing video of a $20 tempered glass on my Galaxy S7 Edge, I learned a few things about them and why you should not use them unless you absolutely can live with its flaws.
