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.

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.

Check out the Samsung Galaxy S8+ full unboxing here.

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.

Galaxy S7 Edge Silver Titanium SD Card

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 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
Matt
