|Apple Watch Series 3 GPS
Read this review BEFORE buying!!!So, this seems like a good watch... right? In my previous (now deleted) review, I said how good the watch was, but things have changed since when I posted my last review a few months ago when I had on…ly used it for a week. 1 - Battery Life When I first was using the watch, the battery couldn't last a whole day, even with power reserve. I had made sure all of the updates were installed overnight, so it can't be that, but rather the lovely optimised charging feature. Make sure you don't charge your Apple Watch when it goes low for the first few days, as charging it will make it think that you will charge it often, and always have a charger. 2 - Storage Due to the watch only having 8GB of storage, and 5.1GB of those are used by watchOS, that doesn't leave you with much space. Updating to a new major version of watchOS requires completely formatting, which deletes all of your data. It also means it's much harder to do things like download your Spotify or Apple Music. I could only download about 2 hours' worth of music via Spotify, even though Spotify says I can download 150+ hours. Apple Music doesn't download at all, as this model of Apple Watch does not support it. 3 - Performace Seeing that the watch has a CPU with around the same power as an iPhone 3GS from 2009, it doesn't work very well with watchOS 8, which is essentially a stripped-down version of iOS 15. When opening applications, there is a noticeable lag, and when listening to music, it frequently stutters. It even takes almost 4 whole minutes to boot when it randomly crashes. 4 - Apple's discontinuation The final nail in the coffin for this watch is definitely the fact that Apple will not be releasing watchOS 9 for the Apple Watch Series 3. watchOS 9 will be the newest version of watchOS, expected to be released on September 8th, in Apple's Far Out event, alongside the iPhone 14, iOS & iPadOS 16 and Apple Watch Series 8. If you're looking for an affordable Apple Watch, I recommend getting an Apple Watch SE, as it's much better value for money, has better battery life & performance, as well as a cellular version and watchOS 9 support.
|Apple iPhone XS 64GB
Welcome to a world of false marketingSo, I have owned my iPhone XS for a long time, it was a great phone, and I somehow managed not to break it, until one day... Everything was all fine, I was recording a video over a bucket of water, wh…en I dropped my iPhone in there! I knew it was “IP68” water and dust resistant, and all I lost was Face ID, which according to the internet is normal. *2 weeks later* Recording another video, except this time, I wanted to record in the water, for a minute. So I did, and to my horror when I took it out, it was showing eerie green lines on the screen before shutting off. I immediately got the heat gun out to open up the phone (rice is for dinner, not repair). All of the water damage indicators were red and the phone was FLOODED with water, so long said IP68 I mentioned earlier. This phone had never been opened up at all. I saw water corrosion on the logic board which I cleaned off with 91% isopropyl alcohol, before reassembling the phone, it powered right up! and had no touch input so I couldn’t trust my pc >:(. As well as that, the screen still had weird lines, and the phone switched off after 25 seconds, rebooted, and then the lightning port was gone, oh yeah and wifi wasn’t working (neither was sim) so I couldn’t remotely backup. I am not paying apple A$879 to “repair” my iPhone. Conclusion: Don’t believe the marketing hype, water + electronics = x x P.s. I will try to attach a photo of the phones insides (with the exploded battery still in and the Taptic Engine removed)

Great headphones!These headphones are great! They have excellent sound quality and amazing battery life! The ANC is amazing however the Smart Control app is kind of limiting, and not very useful, would recommend!…
|Kogan Pulse+ II Smart Watch
Do not buy watch or anything Kogan branded!!!!!Please, this is just so stupid, kogan still isn't helping me, just spend a little extra and get an APPLE WATCH SERIES 3 38MM GPS
Warning to all owners of this smartwatch!!! The update in the veryfit …app breaks the watch's ability to set watch faces, as there is a fatal flaw in the app, I would avoid updating, I already did it, which completely destroyed my watch. Other than that, continue reading, This is a great smartwatch! It's got highly accurate readings for everything it collects (Heart rate, blood oxygen, stress and sleep) and has an amazing battery life, I've had the watch for about 4 days and the battery is still at 60%!!! There is also, however a weird bug in both the Android and iOS apps, the Android app says the watch can hold up to 5 watch faces, however one MUST be a photo one and the other can be a normal one, and the iOS app only lets you have 4 watch faces. Other than that, a pretty solid smartwatch that doesn't end up with glass so scratched it looks multiple years old after 1 day of use (looking at you original Kogan Pulse+ I gave 2 stars on this website and have owned for the past year). [Edit] To Kogan: I have tried installing the latest version of the watch's firmware (v10 > v11) but the update keeps failing, I will try on another device [Edit 2] I'm not really an iOS user anymore (I switched to android and it's great) but before I switched, the iOS app was updated and is way better now [Edit 3] Kogan Customer Support is trash, they asked me for like heaps of personal info which is completely unnecessary, kogan still hasn't replied to my question, I am going to keep sending this review rating down until they give a proper response written in English, not Engrish. [Edit 4] I still haven't got any response from Kogan, I am sending this watch back, here's to the reputation of this product kogan [Edit 5] I have sent the watch back to kogan, so now they have it, but they are not refunding me. I am filing a Paypal dispute against them. Do not buy kogan products.
|Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505
Great when Custom ROM is installedThis is a great phone, large battery, big screen. The only problem is the outdated ROM. Which is where Lineage OS comes in! Using Lineage OS, I was able to keep my phone updated and secure. Apps run …smoothly and I absoloutely love the design, with the easy repairs and battery replacements. Extremely inflated repair prices no more!!!
