Lumion Galaxy Note 8 Case “Guardian” is a slim 2-layer case with matte back that is going to give you optimal balance between comfort and protection. This is my #1 pick and I like it because it’s not too bulky with non-fingerprint-magnet matte back and the screen lip is high enough to protect front-facing screen drops.
Spigen sent me some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL cases, here’s a quick review.
Spigen Liquid Crystal Case has been my all-time favorite for many phones and I love the transparency of the case so I can see through yet it is not bulky and has good lip for protecting the screen.
Although I ordered my Google Pixel 2 XL right as pre-orders were opened, I had to wait over 2 weeks to get my phone as the Black & White version wasn’t shipping until a few days. While the wait was rather long, I had plenty time to play with the regular Pixel 2 and the wait was well worth it as I like the Black & White version much more. The Pixel 2 XL is the bigger brother of Pixel 2 and I am really digging it, especially the curved design.
For those of you who need extra battery for your Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you may want to consider a battery case like ZeroLemon SlimPower, which comes with 5500mAh capacity, enough to recharge your Note 8 about 1.5 times. The ZeroLemon SlimPower is rather thick and bulky, this isn’t for everyone but for those who absolutely need extra 1-2 days of battery life.
In this video, I review the Chamberlain Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener, which I replaced my 50-year old dying garage door opener and also made my garage “smart”. Now I can open and close my garage door from anywhere in the world with an Android app! And yes, if you forget to close your garage door, you can even have it automatically close!
Pixel? How many pixels does this phone have?
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are Google’s first attempt at a premium flagship, Google has even changed its name from Nexus to Pixel, clearly distinguishing its new line of smartphones. Both Pixel & Pixel XL feature 12.3MP back camera, 8MP front camera, back fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 4gigs of RAM, USB Type C, 3.5mm headphone jack, storage of 32GB or 128GB, and virtual reality through its new Daydream VR headset. The only real difference between Pixel and Pixel XL are its display sizes and battery capacity. The Pixel has 5-inch 1080P vs. Pixel XL’s 5.5-inch 1440P and Pixel’s 2770mAh vs. XL’s 3450mAh battery size.
In this review of LG V20, we will be comparing its core features against other flagships like the Pixel XL, S7 Edge, Nexus 6P, and Note 5.
