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!

Play Games Through Your Xbox One’s Internet Browser

If you have an Xbox One and have been urging to play games like Cut The Rope, Pong, Contre Jour, and Pac Man through your Xbox’s browser, this is for you. xboxie.com is a website that has a list of games that are playable from an Xbox One with the Xbox One controller. Some of the games don’t run perfectly and the Xbox One controller isn’t the best option but this is the best alternative until the Xbox One gets an Xbox Live Arcade of its own. Head over to xboxie.com from your Xbox One to try out the games!

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven & XO Four for Xbox One [Gallery]

Last week at CES I got the chance to checkout Turtle Beach’s new upcoming headsets for the Xbox One. At their booth, Turtle Beach had the XO Seven and XO Four headsets and I tried them on to see how they were. Long story short, the XO Four’s had okay sound, horrible build quality, and they were uncomfortable to wear (mainly due to the material of the ear pad). On the other hand, the XO Seven’s were quite comfortable and had a much better build quality and sound. If you spend a lot of hours gaming, I recommend getting the XO Seven’s even if they cost more than the XO Four’s. The new headsets are set to launch sometime in March, check out the gallery below…

They are currently available for pre-order at various online retailers.

XO Seven: Amazon ($160)
XO Four: Amazon ($100)

Xbox Announces an Xbox One “Titanfall” Limited Edition Controller

Earlier today, Xbox announced an Xbox One Limited Edition Wireless Controller that is “Titanfall”-themed.

“In a collaborative effort with the Xbox design team and the Respawn art department, our goal was to create a controller that feels as if it is a piece of military spec hardware transported from the universe of Titanfall and into players hands,” stated Joel Emslie, Lead Artist at Respawn Entertainment.

 

The Limited Edition controller is available for pre-order starting today for $65 and is set to release worldwide by the time “Titanfall” launches on March 11th, 2014 in North America and March 13th, 2014 in Europe.

How To: Play the Same Game on 2 Xbox One’s Without Paying Twice

Back when Microsoft announced the Xbox One, digital game sharing sounded promising but, shortly after, Microsoft retracted their plans and switched focus back to physical media. If you happen to have two consoles in your home or know somebody who you want to share your games with, Microsoft made it so you could. Check out the video below and written out instructions below that…

 

How To:

  1. Console 1 has Profile 1 (Profile which you purchased the game with)
  2. Console 2 has Profile 1 & 2
  3. On Console 2 with Profile 1, go to settings -> My home Xbox -> Click on “Make this my home Xbox”
  4. You can now re-download (with Profile 1) the games that had been purchased. Once they download, you can switch to profile two and use the game as if it was yours!

How To: Sign Out of Skype on The Xbox One

One few issues I came across on the Xbox One was that it automatically signed in one of my Skype accounts because it was linked to my gamertag. According to Xbox Support..

There is no option to sign out of Skype, unless you sign out from your Xbox account on the console directly. However, you can turn off Skype notifications and set your status to “Invisible.”  source

They are, of course, correct. There is currently no way to sign out but there is a workaround.

How To:

  1.  Go to “My games & apps”
  2. Hover over to Skype and click the Menu button (what used to be start) and scroll down to uninstall.
  3. Go to the Store and re-download Skype.
  4. Launch Skype
  5. Click on “use a different Skype account”.
  6. It now tells you that your “accounts have already been linked”-click to got to Skype.com and follow the steps to unlink the account.
  7. Go back to the Skype app and sign in with your other Skype account.
  8. It will ask you to link the accounts. You will do so by confirming.
  9. That’s it, Skype away!
