Pixel 3 Conversion for Galaxy Note 9/S9/S9+!

For those of you who want to convert your Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S9+ into a Google Pixel 3, you can now do it by installing the Pixel Experience ROM.  Now, you WILL need an Exynos model, if you have any Snapdragon models(U.S. models like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon), you won’t be able to install this ROM as they have locked bootloaders.(For future reference, please don’t buy Snapdragon models if you want cool mods like this.)

Android Pie 9.0 for Galaxy S9/S9 Plus! [Pixel Experience GSI ROM]

For those of you who want to try out the latest Android Pie 9.0 for your Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, or any Android device that has unlocked bootloader and Project Treble support, you can grab any of the Android 9.0 GSI(Generic System Image) ROMs and get it now instead of waiting for Samsung to update their TouchWiz, which most likely will take another 3-6 months.  And for those of you in the U.S. with U.S. Snapdragon models, it will be few more months than the international Exynos models as carriers have to re-add their carrier bloatware.  Now, these Android 9.0 GSI ROMs are NOT TouchWiz, they are not Samsung firmware but AOSP ROMs(What is AOSP?).

Galaxy S9 vs. LG G7 vs. Pixel 2 vs. OnePlus 6 vs. Mi 8 [Portrait Selfie Camera Comparison]

In this camera comparison, we compare the portrait mode of the front camera of Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. LG G7 vs. Pixel 2 vs. OnePlus 6 vs. Xiaomi Mi 8.  For this test, we are comparing which phone does the best in terms of mirroring a real DSLR, specifically looking for the camera with better subject separation from the background, background blurring, and also image quality.  Now, this test was done on a pretty bright but cloudy day in good lighting conditions.  In low-light conditions, the results may differ vastly as the more expensive phones have better low-light performance.  We will do another comparison for low-light but this comparison is for those of you who take lots of selfies in good lighting conditions.

Resurrection Remix ROM for Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus! [Android 8.1 Oreo + Root]

Want the latest and greatest Android 8.1 Oreo with root on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus without the TouchWiz additives from Sammy?  Well, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are the best supported devices for AOSP ROMs(What is AOSP?) like LineageOS or Resurrection Remix ROM.  I was skeptical myself, as I have been flashing AOSP ROMs for Galaxy devices for over 7 years and most of the time, these custom ROMs are full of bugs in the first few months.  Well, I was wrong, EVERYTHING is nearly flawless out of the box with the Resurrection Remix ROM(thanks to flawless LineageOS ROM base).  If you don’t like TouchWiz, this is probably the best way to convert your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus into a full-fledged pure Android device like Pixel phones.
