Okay, guys so I have to admit that I wrote the whole script for the OnePlus Two two weeks back but since I got the Moto X Pure and a bunch of new phones came out, it got delayed plus my thoughts on this phone changed drastically due to lots more phones coming at near the same price as the OnePlus Two. When I first got the OnePlus Two few weeks back, it was undeniably the best smartphone you could buy under $400. Well, fast forward a few weeks and the smartphone world has changed a LOT.
4 years ago, Samsung launched the first big smartphone with its first Galaxy Note Android smartphone. At the time, no one knew that phablets like the Galaxy Note would become popular. In fact, most media outlets called it a ridiculously large phone that’s not going to fit in your pocket. Well, fast forward to 2015 and everyone is using a large phone these days. Even Apple introduced their iPhone 6 Plus to satisfy the people’s urge to use large smartphones. Phablets are like the SUVs of cars and if you want the best SUV, the Galaxy Note 5 is really the best you can buy right now.
I have been shopping around for a new steadicam for my Panasonic GH4 so I can add stable motion to my 4K YouTube videos. Well, recently I happened to watch DroidModder Shane’s YouTube video on a smartphone gimbal stabilizer. I did a few hours of research on Amazon and YouTube trying to find the best smartphone stabilizer on the market with good reviews and good real footage.
For those of you who live in the U.S., did you know it’s illegal in over 50% of the States to have a suction cup phone mount on the windshield of your car? (See my article here for list of illegal States). Cops will probably not pull you over but if they wanted to find a reason, this could be one reason to pull you over. If you like to carry illegal stuff in your car (not that I recommend it), pay attention, I may save you from going to jail. Besides that, having a suction phone mount on your windshield does get in the way of your view.
If you thought flexible screen on the Galaxy Note Edge was cool, check out YotaPhone 2, which is world’s first smartphone with E-ink display.
The other day, Twitter user M14xr2 asked me, “hey can you use a macro lens on a Nexus 6?”
The other day I found a great way to make a smartphone or tablet stand using these flexible wires called Gear Tie.
