Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Silver Titanium Unboxing & Firstlook

This video will show you the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Silver Titanium unboxing & firstlook.

Well here it is guys the one you have all been waiting for the unboxing on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Silver Titanium!
What I like most about this phone is that the we see the return of features that were taken out of the Samsung Galaxy S6 like waterproofing, dustproofing, SD micro card slot and heart rate monitor just to name a few. I am unsure why these were removed from the Samsung Galaxy S6 maybe it was issues with space on the new edge frame that was needed for the bigger battery.

After using the phone for a while I do get the feeling the touch sensitivity wasn’t quite as good as the previous model the S6 Edge plus. When using the phone the side of the phone seem to catch the side so my hands a little bit more. Maybe I am getting fat! 🙂 The other thing I found quite annoying was the lock screen now seems to want two swipes to unlock. First you have to swipe once to move to the pattern screen then you have to swipe your pattern to unlock the phone.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Unboxing – not yet my 4K camera broke

I get halfway through my Samsung Galaxy S7 unboxing video and my Sony FDR- AX33 4K camera stops charging.

Hi All,
I thought I would put up a quick video about the troubles I was having with my Sony FDR- AX33 4K camera not charging when working on the Galaxy S7 unboxing and firstlook video. I got half way through the video and couldn’t continue because the charging cable just stopped charging the camera. I called Sony support last week and it took them a whole week to get back to me.

Sony FDR-AX33

If you look at the yellow mark in the top right hand corner of the picture above you will see where the battery icon has simply stopped charging even though the cable is plugged in.
Sony finally sent a courier to pick up the FDR-AX33 yesterday 29/03/2016 so I am out of action filming wise while they fix the issue.

Samsung Galaxy S7

However another option might be to use the Samsung Galaxy S7 camera for 4K filming. Its funny you know the official camera makers like Sony bring out the latest 4k cameras like the FDR-AX33 and then a few months later company’s like Samsung release a 4K camera on their phones. Will the camcorder become extinct in the next few years? I guess we will find out.

If you Google cell phone tripod you might have your answer it seems these little attachments are getting pretty popular. I have been looking around for a good one myself. Although I am still unsure which brand would be the best for me. I seem to think that allot of these attachments look quite cheap and that you phone could quite easily fall out of the attachment and get scratched or broken. So if anyone out there knows a good quality brand one to buy please lets me know in the comments field below. 🙂

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + Unboxing & Firstlook

This video will show you the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + Unboxing & Firstlook.

Hi All,
I was able to get my hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + for an unboxing and review and right out of the box I was impressed with the care taken to the finish of the edge +.
In the picture below the phone at the top is the Galaxy S6 edge and the phone at the bottom is the Galaxy S6 edge +. On the top phone you can see how sharp the edge of the phone has been cut compared with the Galaxy S6 edge + below.

Galaxy S6 edge & Galaxy S6 edge +

When comparing the Galaxy S6 edge with the S6 edge +, the hardware is pretty much the same however the S6 edge + has a bigger 5.7 inch screen over the 5.1 inch screen of the S6 edge. And both models sport the 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED display, with a 529 ppi. The larger model does have a bigger 3000 mAh battery to allow for the extra power used by the bigger screen. And this should get you around 20 hours of talk time.

Size difference Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Samsung Galaxy S6 edge +

After running the geek bench app to see what type of results we got from the powerful 8-core Exynos CPUs on the phones we can the results on the phones are very simular as you can imagine. In the photo below we have the larger Galaxy S6 edge + on the left and on the right the smaller Galaxy S6 edge.

Galaxy S6 edge & Galaxy S6 edge + Geek Bench Scores

The Samsung Galaxy edge + overall design is sleek and stylish and you can get it on all major US carriers for around about $750.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Unboxing & Firstlook

This video will show you the Samsung Galaxy S6 Unboxing & Firstlook.

I had the chance to get my hands on the Samsung Galaxy S6 for an Unboxing and first look. I upgraded my old phone from the Samsung S5 to the Samsung S6 Edge recently and you can check out that video here.

However I think I actually preferred the Samsung S6 over the Samsung S6 edge and the reason was yes you guessed it the edges. I find the Samsung S6 more easier to hold over the Samsung S6 edge and I seem to bump the screen allot more because of the edges and the screen doesn’t feel very accurate. To sum it up I found the edge a bit frustrating to use. However the S6 does have the fancy edges so holding the device is a breeze.

Samsung Galaxy S6 & Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

On paper the hardware of Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge are exactly the same. So speed wise there isn’t that much difference if any between the two phones. But if you check out the video above you will see the Geekbench score the Samsung Galaxy Edge was slightly faster with a single core score of 1499 over the Samsung Galaxy S6, which had a score of 1441. And on the Multi core score the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge reached a whooping 5281 over the Samsung Galaxy S6 at 4769.
Maybe if we ran the tests a few more times these scores would change even though the hardware is the same the Edge did seem to perform better. But does that really matter when making phone calls or sending texts messages? maybe not. But it might when you are playing video or games with the phone.

With this my personal view is that I am kind of disappointed with the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 models. Everything I liked about the Samsung Galaxy S5 is gone. Its like they are trying to hard to compete with Apple they forget what makes people choose Samsung over Apple. And lets face it, who at the moment can really compete with Apple? 🙂

Cheers

Transfer data from old phone to new phone Android

This video will show you how to Transfer data from old phone to new phone Android.

Hi All, recently I upgraded my Android phone from the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I am slowly working through a few issues that I found when setting up the new phone.
One of those issues was a problem with Gmail contacts getting mixed up with my person phone contacts. Find that video here. Delete Gmail contacts from Android.

So how do you Transfer data from old phone to new phone on Android? Well in this video I use an application called Samsung Smart Switch, which is an app that is available on the Google Play website. It allows you to Transfer data from your old phone to your new phone without the need to plug into another computer.
And it also supports moving from IOS to Android and Android to IOS.

Samsung Smart Switch App

The process is pretty straight forward, simply download the Samsung Smart Switch app on both the old device and the new device. Start the Samsung Smart Switch app up on both devices and select the type of OS, so either IOS for Apple Devices devices or Android for Android devices. and then tap the Start button.

Next you will need to set the old device to sending and the new device to Receiving. The two phones should hopefully see each other by now and automatically connect to one another.
Select the data that you want to move from your old phone to your new phone by leaving the check boxes ticked. If there is any data that you don’t want to copy to your new phone, simply remove the tick from the checkbox.

Once done you should be good to go. Just remember that the time it takes to copy data across depends on the speed of your phones and how much data you wish to transfer. For me it was about 4GB and that would take around 40 mins.

I hope this helps out.
Good luck
Matt
