Asus ZenFone 3 Max 5.2

5 out of 5 eggs First Impressions - End of Day 1 Review 12/14/2016

This review is from: Asus ZenFone 3 Max 5.2" 16GB 4G LTE Glacier Silver Unlocked Cell Phone 5.2” 2GB RAM

Pros: Battery Life
Useful apps
Great Microphone that picks up what you say clearly.
Great Fingerprint scanner and its located on the perfect place for the phone!
Screen can get really bright! Yay!
See Other Thoughts for more useful info

Cons: Phone is slow, but as the others have said it is to indeed extend the battery life and for what you get in battery life because of it... yeah it is totally worth it!

You need a case for this phone. It is slippery, no grips at all.

Thankfully the cases are only $10! :D

Speaker isn't all that good especially if you max the volume. I found that having it at half volume is perfect for clarity and loudness. They just amplified the speaker for max volume and it gets suuuper distorted.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product, let me state this.

I am upgrading (technically downgrading) from a Galaxy S5 Active.
That phone wouldn't even make it to noon without needing to be charged.

Alright so first off is what most people want to know and what I wanted to know prior to buying this.
Battery life. The battery life can be explained like this. I am a power user. I have the following installed on this phone (just to name a few)
Facebook
Messenger
Call Recorder
Snapchat
Spotify
Dropbox
File Manager
Cerberus
Nova Launchpad with the fallout makeover so it isnt even the same GUI
Steam
Zedge
and like I said, that is just to name a few.

I unplugged this phone at 7am this morning, it is now 11:37pm and my phone is at 56%. Absolutely bonkers!
I've taken probably about 14minutes of video footage
9 minutes of streaming live on facebook
19 pictures ( that are also auto uploaded to dropbox )
Used bluetooth to play some spotify music for about 2 hours.
Texts
Several calls
Watched youtube over my lunch hour

This thing does it all. I would have been tethered to my computer all day if I was using my old phone.
Yes this phone is slower by FAR, but I am more than willing to let that slide for this battery life.

If this phones battery stands the test of time and keeps its charge like this then I will be buying more Asus phone products in the future.


Talking about the useful apps:
I have never bothered using the Ok, Google feature before this phone. I had tried it, but never liked it thanks to the phone and its laggyness with it.

This phone may have a slower cpu, but from the moment you say " Ok, Google. " you can start saying your sentence right after without breaking your speech.

I have used it all day to set reminders, alarms, the forecast, and a few other things.

If anyone has any other questions please email me at michael at accessgranted dot tech. Thank you for reading my review of this wonderful product!

G.Skill 64GB microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter (FF-TSDXC64GA-U1)

2 out of 5 eggs Worked great but failed after just a few months 12/14/2016

This review is from: G.Skill 64GB microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter (FF-TSDXC64GA-U1)

Pros: Nice capacity at a respectable price

Cons: Purchased in June of 2016 and failed September 2016
One day it just said sd card not detected so I took it out of my phone and plugged it into my many different adapters and was never recognized again. Took it to my Forensics Professor at college and she was unable to recover anything either. Pretty sad. Thankfully I am smart and store all my important things on Dropbox and not just one location. All I had on the device was Spotify music cache files for all my downloaded offline music, but still. It isn't going to be fun downloading all that again haha.

G skill did make a fair product at a great price, but sadly it wasn't as reliable as I would have liked. I was hoping I would at least get a full year out of it. Then I feel it would have been worth the money. Thank you G skill though. Happy Holidays everyone.

Ninebot One C+ Electric Unicycle - White

5 out of 5 eggs Challenging but sooo rewarding! 12/03/2016

This review is from: Ninebot One C+ Electric Unicycle - White

Pros: I will put my thoughts on this in the "Other section". You will want to read them. I noticed mine is only the second review of this beast so yeah. I'll do my best to explain what has happened in the two and a half hours experience that I have riding this thing.

Honestly it is lightweight for what it is. It's about 50 pounds, but the handle and the way the weight is evenly distributed makes it feel closer to 40.

Reliable and well build so far

Smooth riding even over 1-2 inch tall obstacles.

High top speed even though I have yet to acquire the skills to go that fast without dying. haha

Great packaging and instructions.

The learning curve. Read more on this below in the "Other section".

Cons: This does not come with a United States outlet plugin.

All you need though is a power cable from an old computer monitor or something. Or a power supply on a desktop computer. It plugs into the charger and away you go to charge your Ninebot!

Literally the only con about this. One would think that they would include an adapter for all regions, but noooooo.

Other Thoughts: Alrighty onto the juicy details.

As of this moment I have rode on the Ninebot for two and a half hours and I was only just able to go down main street and back without having to hop off of it! Going through crosswalks and everything!

This device takes time to learn. I've owned a two wheeled hoverboard. Forget everything you know about riding that thing, because it won't help you with the ninebot.

I did not read the instructions or watch tutorials to learn how to ride the Ninebot. The moment I opened the box I took it out and just repeatedly for an hour tried to take off. I got nowhere in that hour haha.

Went to sleep and woke up for day two and about at the "now" one and a half hour mark something started to click. I relaxed my body, crouched waaaay down and I was able to ride the length of a building!

Now I'm able to stand straight up and its a pretty smooth ride.

-------------

Beast Mode:

This thing can take a beating. Mine is super scratched up and its okay with me. I knew it was going to happen. I've fallen right on top of it, its been launched off of curbs, ran into with a bicycle because some <insert choice word here> thought it would be funny to cut me off, and much more.

-------------

I like the challenge of learning to ride this. It feels like an elite club, because this is not something anyone can hop on and master in 15 minutes like a normal hoverboard. It takes some amount of skill to ride this. :)
