Samsung S20 + Unboxing Firstlook Zooming Awesome!

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video I will show you a first look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 plus.

Samsung S20 + Display

It’s pretty clear the Samsung S20 + does have allot of differences over its predecessor the S10 plus. These differences start with the design. The display is taller now and runs at 120 Hz along with that you an upgraded CPU, more Ram and a bigger battery. In addition, the annoying Bixby button is gone, thank goodness! Seems like Samsung is listening. Other features include and updated Camera, which we will talk more about later, and great sounding speakers.

S20 Plus Colours

The colour that we have here today is Cosmic Grey, however the S20 Range also comes in Cloud Blue, Cloud Pink and Cosmic Black. In the box you also get some See us first, documentation with registration information and next up you will have a super-fast it’s a 25-watt charger and you can expect to fully charge the S20 in around an hour. The adapter I have here is the Australian new Zealand version, however if you are in the US you would have a US charger. It’s pretty standard these days to get a set of Headphones, these are design by AKG and are USB C Headphones. They also have three different sizes of rubber ear tips.

Hidden away in the top of the box you will have a SIM eject tool plus a quick start guide along with a see through case for your S20 phone. Having a cover case right out of the box is something that I think really makes a big difference and it is a really nice inclusion by Samsung. The quick start guide just shows you how to setup the phone and you have some warranty information.

S20 Plus Case

To show you what they see through case looks like on the S20 plus, you just push it in at the top and bottom corners. Without this case, the phone itself is a bit slippery, but once you put the case on straight away, it does not want to slip out of your hands. Actually it’s really hard to tell that there is even a case on the phone.

Let’s talk about the display. The S20 plus has a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Capacitive touchscreen display. With a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and 525 pixels per inch. Therefore, it is slightly larger than the S10 plus display. The display also supports HDR10+ and has a refresh rate of 120 and 60 Hz. There is no annoying camera notch on this model. Rather you just have a small round cut out for the 10 Megapixel front facing camera which has a F/2.2 aperture and it supports Auto HDR.

Samsung S20 + and iPhone 11 Pro side by side.

For the iPhone users out there is a quick comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro and S20 plus screen sizes. As you can see the S20 plus is a little bit wider and a fair bit taller.

S20 vs iPhone 11 pro side by side

Movies are amazing on this screen. I’ve set the refresh rate to 120 Hz and will give you 20 seconds of the new Star Wars screener. Just remember that it will be different when you have the S20 plus in your hand as some of the detail is lost during the recording, but you get the idea. One last thing listen out for the speaker sound it’s probably the most over looked feature on the S20 plus. They are described as simply Stereo Speakers but the sound is incredible. Here it is.

Camera Zoom on the S20 Plus

The Zoom on the S20 range is next level with the S20 and S20 plus doing 30 x Zoom and the S20 Ultra doing 100 x Zoom. Here is the S20 plus in action. It is a bit hard to see but can focus in on Sydney Tower which is about three miles or 5 kilometres away.

.05 x Zoom
30 x Zoom

I took some pictures at the different Zooms to give you an idea. So the way it works is that its Optical Zoom up until the 2 x Zoom. Then from four x to 30 x it’s Software Zoom. Samsung says they use AI to determine what the higher Zoom photos will look like. As you get higher in the Zoom, you do notice some pixilation of the photos. Overall pretty amazing for something you can store in your pocket.  Here it is again as I focus on a building that is out of the park and across the road.

Let’s not forget the other great features of the S20 plus. It has wireless charging and is IP68 dust and water-resistant. Along with Face Unlock, Finger Print scanner Micro SD card slot. I really think that the S20 range is worth upgrading too.

How to make your Phone Number private on Samsung

How to make your Phone Number private on Samsung

This video & article will show you How to make your Phone Number private on a Samsung phone. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Every now and then you will need to make phone calls from your phone where you don’t want the person you are calling to know the number you are calling from. I made this video for privacy reasons if you wish to hide your number you can follow this guide. Just be aware some people might think your hidden number is a sales call so they might not answer when you want them too.

So what happens when you setup your phone and make a call what does the other person see?

On a Samsung phone it should look something like the picture below.
phone number private

On a iPhone is should look something like the picture below.
phone number private iphone

So to do this go to your phone icon and you will have 3 little dots in the top right hand corner. Tap on those 3 dots and then tap on Settings.
Scroll down to where it says more settings. Next you should have show my caller ID, tap on that. Simply select Hide number.
Any outgoing calls that you make should be hidden from the person you are calling.

The next thing you need to do is to test your hidden number before you call out with the phone. The last thing you want to do is not turn on the Phone Number private and give away your number. Test it to a friends phone or a family member and you should be good to go.

If you want more information on How to make your Phone Number private on Samsung you can check out the official Samsung website here.

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

This video will show you how to do a factory reset when you have Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

In this video I will show you how to Unlock Samsung Phone if have Forgotten PIN Passcode or Pattern.
Ok guys so we have all done it, we have just setup a password or pin code on our Samsung device and we can’t remember what it was.

Forgotten PIN Passcode

The unlock method I am about to show you is called factory reset and it will remove the Password Pattern or PIN Code, but the down side is it will also wipe the data on the phone. Remember that a PIN or password is setup to protect the data on the phone in case you lose the phone. So I suggest to try to remember the passcode or pin first.

A tip that can help you remember is, put the phone down for 30 mins and don’t think about it. Come back to the phone and try your Pattern or PIN again. Sometimes your muscle memory will just do the code automatically without thinking about it. Its worked for me before.

Ok the next thing I need to mention is FRP Lock, Factory reset protection.
FRP lock locks your device with the Google account that you used on your phone. So if you dont know your Google account then I suggest trying to remember if first as you will be asked to enter it after we do the factory reset. To find the Google account you can go to settings and accounts.

Wipe data factory reset

Ok lets get started with the Factory reset.

Simultaneously press and hold the power button + volume up button + home key until the Samsung logo appears, then release only the power button. Release the volume up button and home key when the recovery screen appears. From the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.

See my video on Forgotten Passcode on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Transfer data from Android to Oppo

Transfer data from Android to Oppo

In this video I show you how to transfer all of the following data from Android to Oppo mobile phone.
As soon as you get a new phone you will need to copy across Videos, Music, Pictures, Documents. It can be tricky moving data from Android to Oppo mobile phone because the phones are made by different companies.
To start this process you will need to go into the Tools menu on the Oppo phone and go to backup and restore. Next you will need to press update. This then creates the tool called Clone Phone. This is the tool we will use to move the data between the two phones.

Clone phone will then have two options.
New phone or Old phone.

Android to Oppo

Next you will need to download the Clone phone app on your Samsung or Android phone if it is not on there by default. To do this you can use this link.
http://i.clonephone.coloros.com/download
Put the link above in your phones web browser and download it. Once you have downloaded the app go into your setting and allow it to work on your Android phone. It will need permissions to do this.
Once the Clone phone app is allowed and installed open it up. Press start cloning. It should come up with a QR reader. Scan the barcode of your Oppo phone.
It should say connecting and then the two phones should connect.
If you have issues connecting the two phones make sure you turn off security features like passcode or screen lock.
Press the Start Cloning button to start moving all your data across.

Pretty straight forward not much more to know. Its complicated if you don’t know how to do this so I hope my video will really help.
Apps and their data, Contacts, Messages and call logs should also copy across with this process.

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.

Samsung VR Gear

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.
