Unboxing and Review of Xiaomi Router 3


So, my Iptime Router died suddenly yesterday.

I got a new one. It’s Xiaomi Router 3. Of course, as tradition, I’m doing an unboxing and review of it.


This is the backside of the router. It got numerous features, like USB, security, and such. Probably none which I’ll use. It also got 128mb of storage. Which is something that I will also not use.


If you unbox the package, you get this. The router itself covered with white plastic. It was straight and unwrinkled at first, but I got it wrinkled, so… sorry.

You also get a power adapter, and an owner’s manual. You don’t get a lan cable, so you’ll have to prepare one for yourself.


This is the picture of it set up under my desk. That small light in the middle changes depending on what state the router is in. It’s orange as it’s not yet set up properly, but now it’s blue, which means it’s working correctly.


Setting up the router is fairly easy. The router does everything for you.


But for advanced users, they give you this page to work on. Everything’s here, including the ddns and such.

So, what do I think of it?

Well, I got this router for 35 bucks. For 35 bucks, I think it’s a deal. It got 2 2.4ghz antennas, and 2 5ghz anthennas. It supports 1gzh ethernet, and although I don’t have a gigabit internet, I’m fairly happy with the results. It’s considerably faster loading stuff than my broken one, and It got more settings you can mess with.

My finaly score is 4 out of 5.

Do I recommend it? Well… yeah. But beware! This router might have some unclear stuff cuz it’s chinese! (Not being racist. I just don’t trust some of the makers yet, that’s all. My apologizes if you got offended.)

My unboxing and review of Loving Home mouse & keyboard combo

My unboxing and review of the Loving Home mouse&keyboard set.

So, the mouse I was using broke, and as it was a mouse and keyboard wet, I decided to get a new one. After a lot of searching and walking around, I bought a keyboard and a mouse combo from a nearby wall for 25 bucks. What do I think of it? Here’s the anwer

Here’s the picture of the box.


Nothing to exactly look at, except for the small image in the corner saying that this keyboard has pentagraph keys. So, let’s open it, shall we?


This is what you see when you open up the box. Straight forward, there’s a keyboard, and a mysterious box next to it. Probably holding the mouse. So, let’s open unbox whatever’s in the box and pull out the keyboard!


This is what it looks like. I was disappointed a bit. I thought maybe the top of the keyboard was aluminum, but no. It’s all plastic that looks like one. At least the package is simple with nothing exactly going to waste except for the keycover that I’m not fond of. That went to the waste.


So, this is what it looks like with my surface pro 3. I think I quite like how it looks. Even though it’s not as elegant as having a type cover, the keyboard and mouse still has a nice finish that goes well with the surface.



So, the experience.

Straight forward, the mouse was a bit small, but I got used to it and after a day of use. The keyboard was… actually great. I didn’t expect much from a 25 dollar keyboard and mouse combo, but the typing experience on this was actually quite satisfying. The keys have a nice rebound to it, and it certainly feels better than a normal silicone based keyboard. It might be becauuse I’m quite a bit of fan of pentagraph keys. They don’t tire my hands as much as a normal silicone keys do, and the keyborad is much slimmer and looks more modern as well.

You might have already noticed, but there are two more buttons on the mouse where your thumb rests. It was my first experience of mouse 4 and mouse 5, and I must say, that I was confused of what they do for a bit. Later did I find out that mouse 4 awas forwards and mouse 5 was backwards on normal internet. But in gaming, it was a lot better than having just 3 buttons. I mapped mouse 4 as knife, and mouse 5 with grenades in counter-strike, and it worked out very well for me. So, I am pleased as well.

So, in the end, I would give it a 8/10, considering the price and quality. Those other two points are gone as the build quality can improve (Mine has a slight crack in the back where the parts doesn’t exactly join well) and the noises from clicking the mouse can improve. It’s way too noisy. I know it’s not a silent mouse, but I can use a bit less noise coming from it.

So, that was my unboxing and review of Loving Home’s keyboard and mouse combo. Thank you for reading, and please, like, follow, and share if you like it.

My review of using a flip phone – in 2017!

This is my review of using a flip phone – in 2017!


So, I started using this flip phone since I started to attend high school. About 3 years now. What is it like to use a flip phone for years while others use smart phones? Here’s my review of it.


Well, as you can all imagine, carrying around a flip phone is extremely easy. Mine, being smaller than the iPhone 4s, is very easy to carry around while my LG G5 was a pain in the ass at times to carry around thanks to its big size.


This is something that you’ll expect well of as well. Mine lasted for 5 days at a charge with average use when it was new. Now it only lasts a day, but still, it’s remarkable when you think of some smart phones that needs charging a couple of times a day.


I’ll say it straight forward. There. Is. None. Well, almost none. The seller did give me a case when I first bought the phone, but after that… I’ve not had any case whatsoever. Not that I needed it anyways. At least this particular phone has a feature that allows it to attach a key ring to it, so that’s better than nothing. I got a stuffed whale-shark figure attached to mine.

The build quality & structure sturdiness

The build quality is actually quite nice. I’m guessing it’s because this phone was made with the smart phones, which means it has to be solid, not falling apart. So the build quality is good, and the structure sturdiness… as you would expect from a flip phone, it is very sturdy. Countless times I threw this phone out of frustration, and countless times I dropped it out of mistake. But still, this phone functions well, and has had no faults. All the marks of it being used roughly is on the outside, which is dented, scratched, and starting to fall apart.

The connection to the world

Well… There’s no internet, but there’s this big thing called Calls and Texts, you know? If you use a flip phone for 3 years, you’ll get used to it.

Music, calendar, and other functions

Well, there is music, but it’s as good as nothing as the phone doesn’t have enough storage to store any song, and the calendar is as good as not being there. The only things I find useful in this phone is the phonebook and the radio. At least those two function well. And yes, I do listen to the radio, what else is there to do when you have this phone?

When you transfer files from or to your phone.

Well, you simply can’t. you can, but you can’t view the files on your phone. And, the steps to do are so tedious and mangled up, that you’ll find yourself rather not doing it. So, you’ll find yourself never ever transferring files to your from or to your phone. By the way, that makes it very hard to live in a smart phone world. You can’t view emails, you can’t view the internet, and you can’t do your work on the go.

Phone addict

Don’t worry. You ain’t getting that anytime soon if you’re using a flip phone. There’s simply nothing to do! You’ll rather go out to the library than stick with your phone all day! (Not that I hate books. I’m a reader myself.)

So, that was my review of using a flip phone in 2017. I recommend using a flip phone if you are an addict, a student, or someone who needs to stay away from your phone, but to none others. Thank you for reading, and please, like, follow, and share if you enjoyed!

My review of Surface Pro i3 – in 2017!


This is my review of the Surface Pro 3 i3 – in 2017!

I bought this surface a few days ago, and felt like I needed to review it as I didn’t make a review of any of the Surfaces I owned. (Total 4 of them, including this one.) So here’s my review.


The performance.

This particular Surface has an i3-4020y with 4 gigs of ram and 64 gigs of ssd. So, is it good in 2017? Umm…No..? Cause it lags a bit. Again, it’s a Y instead of a normal U. The lowest of the CPU bunch. Or near it. Whatever. But is it usable? Yes, it is. For normal users who normally have 2-3 tabs open at a time, this Surface won’t exactly lack performance. But for mid to heavy users like me who have more than 1 program running and more than 5 tabs at a time, this Surface definetely lags and lacks performance. While it is definetely usable, it also lags in mid to heavy usage. So, if you’re buying a surface pro 3 in 2017, I recommend more than a i3 and more than 4 gigs of ram. For this surface, I’m personally not giving it a pass.


The design.

The design is pretty good, even by today standards. The surface still looks sleek and professional, and personally, I think it looks even better than the pro 4 or the new Surface. So it’s a pass for me.

The compatability/expandability

The Surface Pro 3 is actually quite compatable with other surfaces. Whichever type cover could be used on any Surface, and it’ll work fine. The chargers of 3 is compatable with 4 and vise versa. The dock is also compatable with each other as well. For expandability, the surface has a micro-sd card slot, 1 usb port, 1 mini display port, and 1 charging port. Not much. If you want to change your ssd, you have to totally tear apart the surface, and the ram is stuck to the board. So for expandability, it isn’t really that good, though you can always use a Usb hub or a higher speced out Surface. So… I’m not going to give it a pass for expandability, while I do give it for the compatability.


The screen.

The Surface has a 2160X1440 IPS display, and I must say, it looks sharp and bright even by today standards. So the Surface passes with flying colors.

The Weight.

The Surface itself is under a kilogram, which makes it extremely light, even with it’s rigid build. (Of course, except for it’s touch screen which cracks very easily.) So it’s easy to carry it around, so I also give it a pass.


The speakers.

The speakers are still quite good. Microsoft says that it’s a stereo, and when you use it, you really do feel it being a stereo. With the speakers being mounted on both sides of the screen. The screen, being 12 inches big, you really do feel the stereo. The speakers don’t feel too bassy or trembly, and personally, I give it a pass with flying colors again, as I think this is one of the best speakers I heard on a laptop.

The cameras.

Well…They suck, ok? So let’s just pass this, shall we? They’re only there for looks, nothing more. It. Simply. Sucks.


The kickstand.

Mine’s still in good shape, but the kickstands do tend to get loose over time. It happened to my 2nd Surface, the surface with an i5 and 8gigs of memories. So… I’m not going to give it a pass. You never know when the hinge is going to give up on you. Even if it doesn’t, it feels way too unsteady as the time goes by.

So that was my review for the Surface Pro 3 i3 – in 2017. It got 5 passes out of 9 tests. Not bad, I guess. My score for the Surface Pro 3 i3 in 2017 is a 6.5/10, as it is quite aged and slow at this point of time.

This is my review of Samsung Micro SDXC 64G card.


The package is simple. It’s consisted of the card itself and a micro sd card reader. The latter being extremely useful to me, as my deskto doesn’t have a sd reader integrated in it.

This card is a UHS-10, and a class 10. It basically means it’s a good card, I guess. Yeah. I don’t know what that means, either. But the package says that it’s capable of transfering files at 48mb/s. Pretty fast, I must say.


So, where do I use it? On my surface pro, of course! I use an i3 64gb surface, so an extra memory to store all my stuff is crutial. And this memory does that job very well with it’s small size and quick transfering speed.

So, the speed. I already said that this card is capable of 48mb/s, and I believe it could actually do it with the right equipments, as I got 41mb/s out of my surface pro. I’m pretty sure it’ll be able to get up there.

The reliablility. Well, it’s a SD card. It’s only going to be as reliable as any other cards. So don’t store any important files on it, or save another copy of it somewhere else. It does have a 10 year warranty, so that makes it a little bit better.

The protability. Well, I’ll pass this. You all know it yourself.


The actual usable storage. 59.6 out of 64. I wonder where the other 4 gigs went. Lol.

The value. I got this for 30 bucks. In my books, that’s not a bad deal, especially with a card reader included.

So, my points? I’ll give it a 9/10. That 1 other point is because of the 4 gigs that just evaporated. Other that that, I can say that I’m satisfied with the performance of this card. Thanks for reading, and if you enjoyed it, please, share, leave a like, and follow.

My Review of LG G5 – in 2017!

My review of LG G5 – in 2017! So, I got this phone a few months ago. As you can see in this picture, the screen might be… cracked. That’s ‘cause I bought the phone with a cracked screen, and might have played with my friends roughly totally forgetting about my phone in my pocket. So please understand, and I assure you, it didn’t affect my review.

So, Is the LG G5 worthy in 2017?

In short, Yes. It totally is.

The performance is still great, as it has a Snapdragon 820 in it. It still runs heavy games like WarDragons very well, even with screen recording on. For normal daily use, it still has more than enough performance to cover all of it.

The battery. Well, to be fair, at this time of use, your battery might be draining extremely fast. After all, it’s been almost 2 years since this thing launched. But no worries. This phone has a removable battery, so if you just swap it out for a new one, it’ll start to last long again.

Next up, the screen. I must say, that the screen on this isn’t bad or get schooled by new phones by any means. As long as I’m aware, the screen has a 2k resolution, and has a pixel density of 400ppi. It definitely isn’t the sharpest display on the market, but still it’s one of the best, and personally, I think it’s good enough.

The UI and the user support. Personally, I’m not exactly fond of LG’s customer support, as they tried to discontinue the V10’s support so fast. You really don’t know when LG decides to discontinue the G5’s support as well. You’re really walking on thin ice here, using this phone. As for the UI, I must say that this time, LG designed the UI very well. It is easy to use, and looks organized.

The design. Well, there’s nothing that can exactly change with a phone, as it’s just one of the mass-produced products. I personally am fond of it. But as always, it’s heavily depended on the person’s preferences.

And the Modules. There hasn’t been any new announcements of the G5’s module after it’s camera grip and the HiFi module. Both, which are…useless for me. But again, this might depend on the person’s preference.

Finally, the cameras. The G5 has three cameras. One wide angle back camera, one normal back camera, and one front facing camera. The cameras are still quite good, though not as good as the newer G6 or the V20. But that doesn’t mean that it’s bad. As a former flagship phone, the images taken by those cameras are still sharp and the colors are quite nicely depicted. It might not be the top of the line camera, but still, it’s more than enough for a moderate daily use.

To sum it up,


-the screen

-the camera

-the performance

-removable battery

-user friendly UI


-the lack of module

-customer support

-the battery might be draining extremely fast

So, this was my review of the LG G5 in 2017. Thank you for reading, and please leave a like, and follow me if you want more contents like this.

Review of LG’s 2 port 2 amp charger

So, this is the charger I’m about to review.

It’s $9, which is basically cheap as hell if you consider that it’s a 2 port 2 amp charger.

All the components it has are those two in the pic, which is good enough.

This is the charger I was using.

An ipad charger.

It’s kinda broken, cuz the charging speed is slower than a 1 amp charger.

So, the test. I started at 69%. See how long it takes to charge fully.

The old charger drained battery even if the phone was plugged in, so even if it did not charge fast, it was a win for me.

But I had my hopes.

I tested it while gaming, and hey! It works! You see the 77% on the top? Yes, it’s charging! While gaming!

Already a win for me, cuz my old one did not. But, how fast?

About 35 min later with quite a bit of gaming, the phone reached 94%. So I reckon it’ll reach full in about 10 min.

I am extremely pleased, cuz the whole test was done with not charging 1 phone, but 2, one which is the Galaxy S4 LTE A I’m writing with, and my flip phone, which apparantly supports fast charging.

The results are more than what I expected. For 9 bucks, the build quality is good, and the charging speed is great.

I am very happy with this purchase.
