In this video, I show you how to make DIY dome glass tempered glass for your Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, S8 Plus, and you can also use this method on pretty much any smartphone to apply loca glue with tempered glass so your touch sensitivity and glare stays the same as if you didn’t have tempered glass on. I got this idea from the Dome Glass screen protector, which is good but I thought you could just do it yourself and save some money, especially if you have more than one phone.
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.
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).
If the Galaxy S9 and S9+ worth getting over the last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8+? Well, if you are undecided, here’s some new features of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus that you may not need.Galaxy S8+ vs S9+ F1.7 dual setup vs. F1.5/F2.4 dual setup (Only S9+ have dual cameras) 240fps vs 960fps slow motion Snapdragon 835 vs. 845 (Exynos 8890 vs. 9810) 4GB vs. 4GB of RAM for S9 but 6GB for S9+ Mono vs. Dual AKG stereo speakers Weird fingerprint sensor location vs. center fingerprint sensor Nougat vs. Oreo
For those of you who may have took bad photos like all of us will do at some point in our life(or do it more often), here’s how to easily fix terrible, bad photos with blown-out highlights or too-dark scenes. If you have Galaxy Note 8, S8, or S8+ you can use the Photo Editor Pro which has load of options and customization just like Photoshop but better optimized for phones.
After pre-ordering from a bunch of different eBay sellers and trying to get a hold of blue color, I ended up ordering a Maple Gold dual SIM model SM-G950FD as blue models were either not available or way overpriced. The main reason I got this over the U.S. models is because the bootloader is unlocked on international models and you can easily root the phone.
Want to convert your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge into Galaxy S8? If you have an Exynos version of Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you are in luck as there’s a custom ROM that gives you all of that including Galaxy S8 camera and all of S8 software features.
