Galaxy Tab S6 Unboxing & Setup Walk-Thru!

Here’s me unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and setup walk-through.  Overall, I really like the snappy performance with Snapdragon 855 processor, high-resolution 10.5-inch 1600×2560 resolution Super AMOLED display, rich-sound from its quad speakers, and the S-Pen giving you accurate, pressure-sensitive feel.  The Galaxy Tab S6 back cameras are decent with a super-wide angle and regular camera capable of 4K videos.  It is still missing slow motion videos, which I would like to see in future models.  Front camera is decent, 1080P only and wish Samsung had stuck the same front camera from the Galaxy S10/Note 10 series as I feel front camera is more useful for tablets. Battery life should be very, very long with its whopping 7040mAh battery.  I should have a full review eventually but for right now, this is definitely the best Android tablet you can buy right now.

Why I am NOT Buying Galaxy Note 10 “Right Now”!

Every year, Samsung releases the Galaxy Note series about 6 months after the S series.  For example, the Galaxy S10 was launched in March earlier this year and the new Galaxy Note 10 will be available at end of August.   This timing “gap” allows means you are getting much of the same but paying a lot more.

How to Change Samsung Pass Autofill to Google SmartLock or LastPass!

For those of you with Samsung smartphone, you may have noticed something odd, that Samsung phones default your app passwords to Samsung Pass, which is Samsung’s own password manager.  Now, before Samsung Pass, Google Android already had its own password manager system using Google’s own SmartLock.   A few years back when Samsung started changing the default autofill to Samsung Pass, I suddenly could not use my Google SmartLock to enter my app passwords automatically.  While the solution is very simple, I was too lazy to fix it and just started hating Samsung for using Samsung Pass.

Coolest Tech at CES 2019 + FULL Google Amusement Ride experience!

CES 2019 was definitely the year of underwater drones and boy, I fly my Mavic Pro 2 by the ocean all the time near where I live and the ocean is more fun underwater.   I would definitely have to say there were at least a dozen companies showing off their latest underwater drone and probably the one impressed me most was the RoboShark, which wasn’t demoable at the show floor as it was “too powerful”.

Galaxy Note 9 Camera 4K Cinematic Camera Test!

Here’s a quick Galaxy Note 9 4K cinematic camera test! It seems like the Galaxy Note 9 like to overexpose but other than that, seems like pretty good cameras especially the telephoto camera seems sharper and better images than the LG V40.  As far as exposure, I feel like the LG V40 does a TON better in auto mode.  Also, the controls for manual mode(Pro mode) on the Galaxy Note 9 is hard to use as the dials are a bit finicky.  At times, I have to really try to register my fingers correctly or the dials just simply don’t work and another reason I just don’t use manual controls on the Galaxy Note 9.  I used auto mostly which works quite fine but like I said, I had to manually adjust the exposure down to get the proper exposure.

LG V40 vs LG G7 vs LG V30 vs Note 9 Which Has the Loudest Sound?

LG V40 vs LG G7 vs LG V30 vs Note 9 Which Has the Loudest Sound?

In today’s test, we take the LG V40 and LG G7’s Boombox sound against the LG V30 and the Galaxy Note 9 to see which has the loudest sound. Also, use headphones or desktop speakers to listen to the difference in bass. The LG V40/G7 have VERY awesome bass when placed on top of a big box. But Note 9 has much better stereo sound if you are more acoustic type but bass heads will appreciate LG V40 or G7 more.

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.

How to Get Free Inflight/Hotel WiFi for Family & Friends!

If you have been paying for your Inflight WiFi or Hotel WiFi, you may want to learn about how to share your paid WiFi with your family or friends (or even by yourself).  In my recent trip back from Las Vegas, I paid $8 on SouthWest for their Inflight WiFi.  Well, I never got to use the “WiFi Sharing” mode on my phones so I decided to use it.  And voila, I was able to share my $8 Inflight WiFi with my dad and mom who were sitting next to me.  If I didn’t use this WiFi Sharing method, they would have also paid $8 each to use the Inflight WiFi.
