  1. The notification shade improvements are bomb, unfortunately it might take a good few months for my S20 to get close to Android 11.
  2. It's occurred to me that I've not given my Samsung Watch a lot of love due to my overwhelming attention directed towards the Buds.


    The Watch has been a great change way from the square design of the Apple Watch, although getting used to Samsung Tizen has been quite the experience. I do like the watch design though, it screams less "I'm a tech nerd" and more of "I wear the hottest clothes and hang out with the hottest chicks" and I love it.

      i have been looking into getting one would you recommend it and did you get the lte version?

    2. sowon


      @savagepain I would recommend it only if you happen to already own a Samsung phone, otherwise a lot of the on-board apps will be next to useless, especially since the Watch itself has its own app store that integrates with Samsung software.


      I didn't get the LTE version as in my past experience buying an LTE-enabled Apple Watch, it wasn't worth the extra money I'd have to fork out for my mobile plan to enable LTE on it to have it work independently. My phone is always within a few meters away from my watch at any given time so it's not worth the extra money for my use case.

      ahh ok yeah i do have a s9+ plus so i might look into find one that is cheap thanks ^-^

  3. Should've probably asked a refund then. I personally hate clickies but if you're up for sourcing other clickies, Kailh Box Jades and other box switches which use a clickbar have much more pronounced and sharper clicks than traditional Cherry click jackets. Box Whites are a fine choice.
  4. WeChat shut down but not WhatsApp seems like kind of a half-ass move to me. Both are just as bad as each other, especially with Facebook at the helm of WhatsApp.
  5. Really missed using my FH5s. I got so jaded by the HD 580s that I forgot how good the clarity and especially the mids are on my FH5s.

      One of them looks like Pingu doing the "NOOTNOOT"

  6. What's the purpose in using clicky switches if you don't want them to click?
  7. Holepunch who, I only know crisp 20:9 aspect ratio.

      Definitely prefer 19.5:9 aspect ratio without any weird holes or notches from my OnePlus 7 Pro ;) But this still looks quite nice!

      Obscenely loooooooooooooooong phone says what? 👀

  8. I still have my DS Lite from a decade ago, vivid memories of playing Mario Kart, Animal Crossing Wild World, and other smaller games on it, it was one of my favorite handheld consoles at the time. I do now own a Nintendo Switch so the death of the DS isn't hitting me as hard since I'm still on the Nintendo train though.
  9. What kind of musician? These would be suited to bass guiatarists the most, I feel. The M50x lack in every frequency range apart from low-end, and even the low-end is far from clear. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and assume your dad has used nothing else, because these sure do not make very good monitors.
  10. Yo listen up, here's the story, about a little bud that lives in a blue case



    1. Meganter


      And all day and all night and everything he sees is just blue like.

  11. Got my new 128GB Samsung microSD for expanded storage on my S20, so far I've transferred all my FLAC files onto it, not sure anything else will be needed to be on this apart from my music library.

  12. The Samsung Buds+ are nasty good, they're a lot darker than what I'd prefer in terms of sound signature, even with an EQ applied, but they're still more than enjoyable thanks to their stellar clarity and sound isolation.


    Also they're really damn cute.



    1. lewdicrous


      Are those left and right buttons on the case, or are they just raised letters?

    2. sowon


      @lewdicrous Just cosmetic raised letters for some reason, not sure why they're even there

    3. lewdicrous


      Weird, the previous version only had silk screen-esk lettering. maybe it's a way to differentiate between the two.

  13. Samsung Buds+! The blue tech is so real.


    Already gave these a listen, they have a very dark sound signature even with the dynamic EQ, so metal and rock genres lend well to these guys. They're also super well-fitting, I have tiny ear canals so I need the smallest tips, and they fit so nicely.

      God please dont make this the new "What color is the dress" post

    3. Den-Fi


      The pink is throwing the color balance off in the photo. That's all.

    4. soldier_ph


      @TVwazhere Looks more Pink to me.



  14. I am going to stay clear of any 'gaming' products that IKEA makes, frankly I don't think furniture is where gaming matters, even chairs for that matter with the Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody.
  15. Exactly, wish I had heeded the warning about M40x being the better pick in my original purchase, but I was seduced by the foldable earcups. I've obviously moved onto better audio since then so I no longer have a use for my M50x, fortunately for my ears! Awesome stuff! I've never been one for wireless headphones, but I love wireless earphones, the convenience of having no wires feels airy and so nice.
