    Like before I'm good with Samsung phones. I know what to expect. The form factor is most impressive to me. Just about the same screen size as a s9+ and just a tad bigger than a S9.

    Nice! Let us know what you think.
    I really like it. I got a really good speck case for like almost nothing too. The entire phone is light weight less than the s9 and a bigger screen. Even with the case. Great sound quality and plenty of base storage. I have taken a few pics randomly and they have not disappointed of course. The hole punch personally still bugs me. If this phone had a pop up front camera it would have had no competition from oneplus. Why samsung even chose it that way over something less obtrusive? Who knows... They should have ditched the hole punch though. Good and bad thing is that this might be the last galaxy s generation with a headphone jack...

    Not mine, but purchased by my ex-colleague. A solar powered flood light for the garden.
    We used the same shipping agent, so it came shipped together with the Charge2 straps. I get to test it before passing it on!! Looks like something I'll be interested in for the farm.

    Ipega 'unicorn' bluetooth gaming pad for my smartphone. Works pretty nicely for emulation, hit and miss for android games (some expect full controller, some don't). But for my purposes, that's just fine. Feels nice in the hand.

    Wife bought a new laptop. I never heard of the DY brand but it has a nice screen, lots of ports and seems fast enough with a 8th gen i5, 8GB DDR4 and an SSD.

    I bought some 256GB USB 3.1 flash drives to use as recovery drives (including a full image) of the boot drives of our PCs.

    If you want to do something similar you might want different drives because:

    (1) the metal is slick as wet soap and the tapered shapes make it virtually impossible to pick up from a flat surface. I had to slide them off the edge and catch them as they fell. LoL Probably can pick up if laid upside down.

    (2) even Sharpie ink doesn't stick. So I'll need to use dabs of paint (hope that sticks) and memorize what paint goes with what PC (maybe put a dab of the paint on the PCs?).

    (3) really bizarre bench-marking (see below). Same on all 3 on different PCs, different USB 3 controllers on a PC. Other USB 3 flash drives bench-mark fine all of those ways.

    Finally.

    Interestingly enough, I put in on my wrist and felt "meh". This might one of those "it'll grow on me purchases". By comparison, the S3 classic felt like "yes!" when I put in on the wrist.

    Review is coming later. 20190809_190510.jpeg

    Initial impressions show there isn't that much difference between this and the S3 classic. The improvements are subtle, but welcomed. It feels and looks flatter and wider than the S3 classic, which feels narrower but higher on the wrist. I do prefer the styling of the S3 classic though.

    Fossil though from a design perspective, kills these two. Those "sit well" on my wrist, having that premium weighted feeling. A Gen 3 Fossil Q Explorist with a rotating bezel would be killer as F.

    Good with the purchase. If I was still staying with the 20mm straps I would have gotten the black version.

    It looks like it would be great for me to put in laptop, mouse, power cords, tablet, headphones and any other gear I take with me.

    Thanks. I'm waiting for the nano coating I bought (that in theory works for cell phone and tablet screens) to try on it to see about the water resistance. In the meantime, I'll use it as normal.

    That's my biggest knock with the alta line was that it was lim, but never water resistant.

    Lenovo Smart Clock! Seems a bit silly, I know, but Best Buy had it on sale for $49 plus I had an additional $5 credit. Solid timing as the sound on my other Google speaker died out about two weeks ago. it was an Insignia speaker I got for free but I liked that it had an LCD screen so I could quickly check the time. The Lenovo should make for a good replacement since it too has an LCD screen.

    It's alright. Screen could stand to be a lot better, especially given the price. But I did get it for a fraction of the normal cost so I don't want to complain too much. I'm also not impressed with the speaker quality, but I also knew that before buying it. This is more of a thing one buys to have... well... an alarm clock with the added bonus of being a smart device. :)
