Next on your Samsung phone the Smart Switch software should pop up automatically and if you just tap ok on the menu. So the next step is to select new or old phone.

You will need to turn on file transfer mode on the old phone. In this case Oppo phone. So swipe down from the top of your Oppo phone and select charging via USB. And then tap on the photo transfer option. It will say open Smart Switch on your old device. So go to the Play.Google.com site and download a copy if you don’t already have it.

Samsung Galaxy S10e Unboxing Firstlook

NOTCH REMOVED – Samsung Galaxy s10e

In this article we will show you the Samsung Galaxy s10e unboxing and firstlook. The first thing you will notice about Samsung’s s10 models is the annoying notch at the top of the phone is now gone. The display is called the infinity o display and the removal of the notch can make for a more cinematic experience.

ULTRASONIC FINGERPRINT SENSOR

On the S10 and the S10 plus you get the use of a hidden biometric sensor. You can use this sensor by pressing the display and it will automatically unlock your phone. Samsung is the first company to use this technology. However it was Qualcomm’s ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint technology. The S10e which features in our video only has capacitive fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone.

REDUCTION IN BLUE LIGHT

Samsung say that they have reduced the blue light amount on these phones by as much as 42-percent. And this is without having to change the colour of the display. This is really good news for your eyes which might be another good reason to upgrade.

COLOURS

The s10 range comes in quite a few different colours depending on which model you buy. But do you really need to choose a colour when you will probably cover the phone with a protective phone case anyway? Also depending on your country you should be able to get the following colours. Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Blue, Flamingo Pink, Prism Green. For the S10 Plus premium price phone you will have the extra options of Ceramic White and Ceramic Black. These day I think you can easily get away with a black or white model and then choose a nice colour case to go with it.

When choosing which model you want also you will have different capacity options. Starting from 128gb to 1 TB.

For me personally the I like this phone because of the blue light reduction. Its a great selling point knowing that the phone might be healthier on my eyes.

The step by step video on how to fix the forgotten passcode.

The Problem – Forgot your Passcode

This can happen because you use your finger print scanner or face recognition software and when you restart your iPhone it asks you for your passcode. This can be really frustrating however we should be able to step you through this problem.

Step 1 – Remember the Passcode

Next you will have three options: Cancel, Update and Restore. Now is a good time to mention that this process will wipe any data on the iPhone including your passcode. So just try to remember your passcode one more time before going to the next step.

Next click restore and then next option will be restore and update. Then your iPhone should reset itself and you should be able to setup your device again from scratch. Good luck ! 🙂

The iPhone 8 is capable of fast charging, however it doesn’t come with a fast charging adapter out of the box. So you will have to buy that separately. Standard wired ear pods which connected to the lighting port on the bottom of the phone. Fast charging allows you to charge half the device in 30 mins.

For the first time on the iPhone 8 it comes with a glass back panel which allows you to charge the phone with wireless charging. So if you are in the market for a protective cover for the phone make sure you check that it works with the wireless charger you wish to use.

The Apple iPhone 8 comes with a 4.7 inch retina display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 which is good for 326 ppi. However its still an IPS display, however it looks fantastic and it gets about 625 nits of Max brightness.

How to clean the iRobot Roomba – Step by step

Cleaning the cleaner! How to clean the iRobot Roomba.

Running the iRobot Roomba on a weekly basis means that you will have to clean the Vacuum itself. We will show you how to clean the iRobot Roomba so that your RoboVac stays in tip top shape. Once the RoboVac has cleaned your floors, the steps below will tell you how to keep it operating.

Empty the iRobot Roomba bin

Step 1: Empty the bin. The bin is the main tray on the iRobot Roomba that gets full from doing the household vacuuming. It is located on the back of the iRobot Roomba. To empty the bin simply press the button on the back of the RoboVac and it should slide out. So once you pulled the bin out, there is a door on the back that which you can open and simply pour out the dust. You will need to pour the dust out after every use because it will fill up.

So remove your blue filter you can take it about and clean it. Because it catches the fine dust.

Step 2: If you turn the iRobot Roomba over you will see some brushes and two yellow tabs which you can lift and remove those brushes. The roller brushes are used to sweep dust into the bin of the iRobot Roomba and you will need to remove duct and hair that gets caught around these rollers.

Step 3: So the next step here is to clean the castor wheel and it allows the iRobot Roomba to steer. Use your fingers to pull the whole wheel out. Sometimes it gets hair around it. This will need cleaning every two weeks.

Step 4: This is the last step. You will need to clean the side wheel, but first remove it with a screwdriver. Turn the screwdriver to remove the wheel and simply clean as you need it.

Don’t you miss out on our last video which will show you the iRobot Roomba unboxing.

iRobot Roomba 637 – The Best RoboVac?

Unboxing of the iRobot Roomba 637

In this video we will take a look at the iRobot Roomba 637. This is the base model of the iRobot Roomba range but does a great job of cleaning.

When you start looking at the iRobot Roomba vacuums there is actually six different models and they all have different features like scheduling, WIFI connection and tangle free brushes.

iRobot Roomba Virtual Wall.

The iRobot Roomba comes with a Virtual wall which is just an invisible sensor that stops the vacuum from going into a certain areas. You can use this device to block off parts of your floor like stairs or cables.

Stop it going where you don’t want it to go!

The docking station also has a sensor on it so you can use the docking station to stop the RoboVac going to an area which you don’t want to. So in my case I stopped it from going near my dog door.

But if you want the RoboVac to do a really good job. Just pick up anything that might get in its way. Think about how you can make your own Vacuuming job allot easier and faster by pickup clothes, kids toys. Its the same deal with the RoboVac. Because the easier you make the job for the RoboVac, the better job it will do.

If it doesn’t have to stop and go around objects then it will clean allot more space faster and do a much better job. This model does a really well along edges as well. It has a little brush that sweeps any dirt from the edges of walls and cabinets and then that dust is sucked up by the main rollers of the RoboVac.

Want to know more about strip lights? Click here.

$20 Strip Light vs $200 Strip Light – Philips Hue

This video and article will compare a $20 Strip Light vs $200 Strip Light.
The two Strip Lights I am going to compare today are the Philips Hue, which needs a network bridge and a generic $20 Strip Light. The later you can get off Amazon or eBay.
So the starting price for the generic strip lighting is $20 and the Philips Hue range will be around $200. This will depend on which country you are from.
If we take a look at the $20 strip light first. The box contains the RGB Control Box. This control box allows us to power the strip lighting and it also allows us to use the infrared remote control to change the colour of the LED strip.

The remote control is a nice feature as it allows you to start using the strip light straight away without the need to download an app on your phone. What if you don’t have a phone? 🙂 However on the Philips Hue range you need to have a phone and a phone app to be able to customise the lighting.

Depending on your lighting needs this can be a hassle. I know personally it was much easier for me to pick up a remote press two buttons for my background video lighting. But for the Philips Hue I would have to pick up my phone open my phone press on the app.

The other big issue I found was that the Philips Hue app didn’t have allot of functionality and rather to get great app features you would have to pay a 3rd party fee for a better app with more functions. Personally I found this annoying for what I needed the strip light to do. But if you have a big light show production with many lights I can see how having 1 phone with an app would be very handy comparing it to maybe five or 10 different remotes.

Another benefit of the Philips Hue range over the Generic range is the quality. The Philips strip come wrapped in protective plastic and would be less likely to brake. Where as the generic brand doesn’t have this protective cover and could break.

Lastly the quality of the colour thrown out by the Philips brand is much brighter and I have been told it throws out a True colour.
