Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre Order Preview

Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre Order Preview

This video & article will show you the Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre Order Preview.

Thinking about getting the Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre Order? In this video I will show you what to expect when you order Samsung latest phone.
Included in the box is a Samsung Gear VR and a music docking station. This allows you to place your Samsung phone on the docking station so that your music can be amplified through the docking station.

You also get a Samsung Galaxy carry bag. It seems that Samsung maybe trying to woo back its customers after the failed Samsung Galaxy note 7 launch.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Pre Order Bag

I feel like allot of this free stuff is just cheap stuff that they couldn’t sell anyway. So I am wondering if those who purchased the Samsung Galaxy S8+ found any value in the extra items, the Samsung bag, Gear VR headset or the music docking station. I understand they are trying to build a market for the Samsung Gear VR sets and by giving them away they are promoting the VR side of things. However for me personally I still haven’t opened the Gear VR headset that I got with the Samsung S7 phone last year!

Samsung Galaxy Speaker Dock

I have yet to test the speaker dock it looks ok on first glance. Would I go out and buy one of these docks the answer would be no. I think a better option would have been to give away a wireless charger with the Samsung Galaxy S8. I think that show people the benefits of a wireless charger would have been a much better idea. However maybe the cost of a wireless charger would be too much.
The wireless charger retails for $99s AUD, so maybe the extra cost would be too much for Samsung.

Check out the Samsung Galaxy S8+ full unboxing here.

Google Pixel XL fails build quality

Google Pixel XL fails build quality

After getting news that Google would be releasing a new rage of phones called the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL, I was pretty excited and hopeful that the new range of phones would give me a great alternative to my current phone the Samsung Galaxy S7.
As well as its being a new phone for Google. It is also the first time that the we have previewed an Android phone from Google HTC. Now I say HTC because this phone is designed by Google and made by HTC.

Google Pixel XL

Unfortunately that’s where my love affair ended. After unboxing the Google Pixel XL
unboxing the Google Pixel XL I noticed that the design felt quite dated maybe about 1 year behind that of the Samsung Galaxy S7, however that alone would worry me too much as the software that does come with the Google Pixel XL is pretty dam good although I had a hard time working out the actual real difference between the Google assistant on the Pixel XL and the Google assistant on the Samsung S7. Both seemed to do the same job for me.

But the one thing that really kind of left me speechless with the Google Pixel XL was the build quality. The Google Pixel XL fails build quality in my book. First of all the phone it not water proof and for good reason because my model literally had the screen starting to peel back after one day of use.

This is really bad considering the cost of the phone was $1300s Australian this is about $950 USD. So not a cheap phone by any means. At the end of the day I was more disappointed that the phone didn’t live up to my expectations. Maybe I have just been to lucky with the Samsung models so far have been very good and at this stage doesn’t look like I will be changing them anytime soon.

Let me know your thoughts? Please feel free to leave a comment I would love to hear from you.
