Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: Honor 8X Follow-Up With Prices,Cameras and Hands-On Review Info

Today I was happy to find that one of the “Reviewers I Trust” had just posted a short hands on review of the Honor 8X, which is a phone I have been researching for a number of days now to see if it is worth calling a budget phone I would recommend.

The review, although short, was quite informative and as usual covered all the points folks like hearing about.

So I did a quick video to explain what the highlights and low points were on this phone as pointed out by Ben over at ben’s gadget reviews.

So watch the video I just did and then at the end click the link to be whisked magically over to Ben’s channel and see the entire video!

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Tech Reviewer Who Is Doing It Right

This video I did late this evening and it does cover a subject I have covered on our channel here, but not to the extent that this particular reviewer covers it over a wide variety of smartphones he has tested.

He should already be familiar to those who subscribe to our channel, since he is number 1 on my list of “Reviewers I Trust, but I thought it necessary to point out the one thing he is doing better than all the other reviewers I see out there.

Make sure to visit his channel for actual useful info on the latest smartphones and most importantly the associated accessories!

So let us proceed at once to the video….

One More Video Worth Sharing: Galaxy Note 9 UnBox and Review

Tonight we have a video from Andrew over at AMDTech on the Galaxy Note 9. Yes, it has been reviewed to death but this one comes from someone I trust and therefore gets shared.

He points out all the pros and cons and most importantly points out that whopping $1000 price tag, which in my opinion is simply too much for any phone.

This is a nice fair and balanced review without the hype and without the overpromotion!

So let us proceed at once to the video!

As usual, make sure to check out his YouTube channel for a wide variety of tech reviews that are professionally done and offer honest information.

Tonight’s Second and Third Videos Worth Sharing (Yes, a Double Feature!) The OnePlus 6 Unboxing and First Impressions

Of course I am completely tired of the endless hype that the OnePlus 6 phone received on the days leading up to and the day of its release. I simply have not seen this much hype over a freaking smartphone ever! But fortunately for us, I subscribe to a couple of reviewers I actually trust, who are nit-[icky as can be and give us the straight info, albeit a few short time after the release.

The thing I notice most is that both come to the very same conclusions during their initial reviews. That  and the fact as there isn’t all that much talk about how pretty the phone looks , etc, etc.

I will not bore you with the specs on these because this phone has been beaten like a dead horse as far as specs and hype goes.

So the video selections tonight come to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and Chris over at TechTablets.com. Different styles, similar conclusions!

So make sure to visit their channels for great reviews and here are the videos in the order I watched them…

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: MELE PCG02 Versus Zotac Ci327 What to Buy? (2 videos!)

So last night I was catching up on all the videos from folks I subscribe to and I ran across a video from Alex (RedSkull) on the MeLe PCG02 mini-PC. This is one interesting little device and I will be attaching that video to this article.

So after watching the video and checking out the specs I began to think how could this thing be used? Then I began to think, since it is an Intel Apollo Lake N3450 based device, how would it stack up to say a Zotac Ci327. Obviously size is a factor but so is the ability to expand RAM and storage and temperatures.

So let us get right to where to find these devices and then the specs. The MeLe PCG02 can be found on Geekbuying right now for $179. You can find the Zotac Ci327 over at Newegg at this link for $149.

Both devices run the Intel N3450 processor and Intel 500 graphics.  That is where the similarities pretty much end. The MeLe comes with Win10 home installed and activated and an eMMC 32 GB drive. You can of course add a microSD card for storage expansion.  You are also limited to the 4 GB RAM on-board. The Zotac is a bare bones kit and you will need to get a Sata 3 SSD drive and some RAM. You will also need a Win 10 license which can be quite inexpensive.

However,  with the Zotac you will end up with faster reads and writes and be able to select your storage and  RAM options. You can put in  up to 8 GB of RAM.

The MeLe may have some heat issues depending on how you use it, although as I point out in the video, you can buy some of those little stick on rubber bumpers to the bottom to increase airflow below the PC. The Zotac has ventilation on all sides and has small rubber feet already and heat will not be an issue in 99.99% of all use cases.

Cost wise the MeLe PCG02 will be the overall winner.  For ports and cooling and a little more horsepower the Zotac will be the winner. This will all depend on your use scenario.

So let us go right to those videos, first is my comparison and recommendation followed by Redskull’s hands on review of the  MeLe PCG02. Make sure to like and subscribe to both channels!
