Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.

Switching from iPhone 7 to Galaxy S8


 

I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.


 

I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!

First Google Glass Unboxing & New Details

Developers who signed up for the Google Glass Explorer edition last year at Google I/O will soon be getting them. We have known how Glass looks and performs for a while but we didn’t know what people would be getting in the box for the $1500 price tag. To relieve us of the curiosity Brandon Allgood got his hands on the Google Glass box and revealed what’s inside the box.

Inside the box you get two different visors(Clear & Tinted), a carrying bag, a power adapter, a power cord and Google Glass itself. Google also revealed more details about Glass and said that the glasses have adjustable nose pads and that the screen is comparable to a 25-inch high-definition screen eight feet away.

Glass connects to the Internet using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, has 12 gigabytes of usable storage, and the battery lasts about a day but that is dependent on how many videos a person records. Google has also released the My Glass app for Android which allows users to set up Glass. If you aren’t one of the lucky few that will get Glass in the upcoming months then the app is useless, unless you download it and wait until the end out this year to buy Glass when it’s a consumer product.

iPod Nano 7th Gen (Black/Slate) Unboxing, Size Comparison, OS Tour [Video]

Apple’s new iPod Nano takes a completely different approach from its predecessor. While the old iPod Nano was portable and wearable, the new iPod Nano is focused at people who work out and prefer physical buttons as well as kids whose parents don’t want the to have the ability of browsing the internet or buying apps with the iPod Touch. This iPod also brings back video playback which is actually quite good but still runs a weird OS, now called the “Nano OS”, but still looks like iOS and could be misleading to some. Check out our unboxing, size comparison, and OS tour in the video below.

iPod Touch 5th Gen (PRODUCT RED) Unboxing, Size Comparison, Loop Accessory [Video]

Today, Apple stores got their shipments for the new iPods and we got our hands on both the new iPod Touch and iPod Nano. The iPod Touch is significantly better than its predecessors and is really the best iPod Touch to date. The aluminum back has a great looking, sleek finish which makes it feel durable yet it is extremely light and thin. Below is our video with the unboxing and size comparison for the new iPod Touch and its Loop accessory.

iPhone 5 Unboxing Photos Start To Surface

BGR has posted the first unboxing photos of the iPhone 5. There are some slight packaging changes but the most noticeable is that the headphones come in the same retail package that they are sold in at Apple Stores.

Apple has changed its packaging slightly with the iPhone 5, and as it announced last week, the company’s new EarPod headphones are bundled with the iPhone including a plastic travel case. Also included is a new power adapter that supplies more power to the phone when charging, and of course the Lightning to USB cable.

Below are some photos of the unboxing.
