Today’s Second Video Worth Sharing: Cables and More USB Cables, Be Aware!

Today we have a video on things to be aware of when using USB cables. It is just a little tech info that you might just find interesting.

Sorry for the slow narration but it was 3 am when I was shooting this one!

The bottom line is that some USB cables are simply charging cables, therefore no data. While doing some experimenting with the P20 knockoff phone last night I finally became aware of this issue. So I proceeded to check out all my USB cables and of course the only one that was just for charging was the one I have been using forever!

All my other USB cables, both type C and standard work just dandy as both charging and data cables.

So watch the video, maybe learn something and make sure to visit our YouTube channel!

This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: P20 Knockoff Final Conclusions -Too Many Less Than Stellar Specs!

This video covers my final conclusions on this device. To put it mildly, it has far too many downsides especially considering a new smartphone user trying to deal with it.

All links mentioned in the video are listed below below:
Mike Reed’s Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr8q0k8jNqI9NqllOYOPUPA
Previous Video: https://youtu.be/jllqpseExG4
Umidigi A3: https://youtu.be/B1tQWMV3KR4

All the specs listed on the sales site were lies. Yeah, pulling no punches, check the previous video for all the info.

The battery is dismal, although with a proper charger it charges quite fast, which considering the anemic size makes sense. ( No, I have not determined the actual battery specs).

The screen resolution is is nowhere near up to the specs, the processor stinks and the RAM is simply 3 GB less than promised.

There is simply no way to determine if this is a GSM phone and the manufacturer is unknown. Although if one checks the imei numbers, it comes back as a Samsung Galaxy S7….yeah, not even close!

Do Not buy this phone unless you know something I do not!

Okay enough typing, time for the video!

Below you will find the exclusive bonus coverage video!

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: P20 Knockoff Smartphone Hardware Info

So late last even I finished up a follow up video on the P20 knockoff phone. It actually works quite well and has a few drawbacks.

First and foremost on my list of things to test was what type of actual specs does this thing really have?

All links mentioned in the video are listed below below:
Where to buy: https://www.wish.com/search/p20%20smartphone
Previous Video: https://youtu.be/jllqpseExG4
Umidigi A3: https://youtu.be/B1tQWMV3KR4

As expected the phone failed to meet most of the sellers promises. Storage is incredibly restricted, the display resolution is nowhere near even 2015 standards and the operating system certainly isn’t  Android 8.1. The RAM is also only 1 GB.

I would still recommend the UmiDigi A3 as an entry level phone with much better specs. It is on sale currently at Gearbest for only $75.

So watch the video for all the details and give it a Thumbs up and subscribe.
