After around one year and eight months, LG V10 is finally gone. It has a bootloop. I researched on the internet, that should be a motherboard issue. I am a mobile application developer. I cannot live without a phone in a single day. Finally, I bought a Galaxy S8 Plus.
I believe Galaxy S8 Plus got the highest specifications in the market.
It got Exynos 9 Octa-Core Chip CPU and 4GB. It got a high processing power. Moreover, the screen is Super AMOLED Infinity Display and 2960 x 1440. That got a stunning display. Also, it can record 4K video. I love it.
The one things. I did not like; it has not a hardware home and back button. I need to use the software toolbar at the bottom for this purpose. That is much too harder.
There is one significant change. It used USB Type-c. Therefore, all of the micro-USB cables cannot be used anymore. Luckily, in the box, there is a USB-C to micro-USB adapter. I love it.
In general, I love this phone.
A few week ago, I went to JB HiFi. I found Google Home arrives. That cost $199. Google Home is mainly a physical version of Google Assistant. You can talk to it then you locate the answer from Google and schedule a meeting. Also, that is a hub for your smart home appliances. of course, it can be a Bluetooth speaker. Lastly, it looks stylish too. But for myself, I have not any smart home appliances yet. That is not very useful for me yet.
In my position, I need to do some Administrative tasks in Office 365. Office 365 got a very user-friendly interface to config the Office 365 products, from Calendar to Sharepoint Online. However, for advanced administrative tasks, I need to use Powershell script. Such as unlocking composited looks in Sharepoint and Change the permission of a room's calendar. Thus, as an Office 365 Admin, I have to learn Powershell. I need to watch more tutorial video from Plursight.
Last week, finally, I got a chance to see a Microsoft Surface Laptop in JB HiFi. This product is available in Australia! I got about one minute to try this laptop. Firstly, I found it looks like Surface Book, just only it cannot detach its screen to become a tablet. Secondly, it has a fabricskin keyboard. I found that is very comfortable. Also, the fabric cover made me feel warm when I type. Thirdly, the screen is sharp too.
Well, there is the usual downside again. The price tag is not cheap. The Core i7 with 8GB and 256SSD costs $2499.
In the end, it cost too much, I cannot have it!
I have used my LG V10 for one and half year. In general, that is not bad. A few days ago, I got the latest update for Android OS. That is Android 7. I used Samsung before; I only got 2 OS updates. But LG sounds a better deal. My LG V10 came with Android 4.4, then I got Android 5.5 not long afterward. About a year ago, I got Android 6.0. Now, I got Android 7.0. I like it.
After the upgrade, my phone is still smooth. Moreover, I love the notification hub. The new way is more organized. Lastly, I found the icon sets are changed, the style got more flatten.
