    Post Just received Pixel 3 and had to return it!

    Oh, yeah...just noticed that! I was so focused on the scratches and SIM tray that I didn't even bother too look for other issues. Good call! Guess QA missed this one SMH!

    Thread Just received Pixel 3 and had to return it!

    I was excited to receive my pixel 3 Just white 128 GB yesterday 10/18! Upon opening the device and holding it in my hand, I felt the lower SIM card tray was not fully seated into the slot. I removed it and re-inserted the tray. It seems there is an issue with this device and the sim tray not...

    Post Magnetic vent mount

    You are correct. It only outputs 1A of power. I have not been able to find a vent/magnet mount Qi quick charger on the market yet. I was thinking of building my own as you can source prebuilt units that can output 1.3-1.5Amps, but have to use a 9v adapter. Will still look around. :fingers-crossed:

    Post Problem with Armorsuit Case Friendly Screen Protector (S8)

    I bought an Armour Suit screen protector of Ebay and had no issues installing it. It fits great and the edges are not lifting. When installing, the edges did lift slightly, but I ended up using a hair dryer to let the edges stick. After applying the spray solution, when the skin adhesive drys a...

    Post Magnetic vent mount

    I just got the Nillkin quick charge vent mount and it works great. There are two thin metal strips that adhere to the back of the phone and don't need to block the charge area. This is by far the best magnetic vent mount I have used so far. And if you don't mind the thin'ist TPU case this works...

    The Nillkin brand of cases out of china are good quality. I've owned a few version of their cases for different models of phone. If you want the slimist case that is TPU and gives some slight shock protection over not having a case, the NATURE line is awesome. I just ordered my clear S8 case...

    The problem with the 3D curved tempered glass is that the adhesive they use is not like the flat glass versions. Not sure why no one can do this.

    I had the G6 for about two days and returned it. I had high hopes for it but sadly it wasn't up to par. I've had the G4, V10, G5, V20 (current) and the G6 after I set it up was starting to show lag between tasks. Also, the pictures came out grainy and noisy. I did a factory reset twice with no...

    Post [Discussion] LG G6 Mega Thread

    I had thought about it, but unfortunately I use verizon. I would have to root the device to try and use qpst to enable the cdma bands on the chip and see if I can get the device to link to the cdma network/PRL coding. Seemed too much of a hassle for the cost.

    Picked up a Black version G6 this past Thursday. Was super stoked to finally get the device. It's a Verizon version. I got to test it the last few days and I'm sadly disappointed with it.

    I just got the Nilkin Brand thin clear Natural case for my G4. It is the best case in my opinion. It's only 0.6mm thin. It's like a prophylactic for your phone ...lol.
