Samsung Galaxy A51 6GB RAM 128GB Review

| 16 views

Samsung Galaxy A51 was first released in December 2019. I bought this phone as a replacement phone for the Samsung Galaxy A50, to whom glass cracked on the tiles at the Champions Academy in Tbilisi after a good workout, at the start of September 2020 My previous Galaxy A50 had served me for about a year and was still a very decent phone, to avoid dealing with repairs I decided to take a new one. I was very happy learning that there is the same version but an upgraded model for my phone.…


DJI Mini Mavic Drone Review

| 4 views

DJI Mini Mavic drone has been around for a while already (since the end of 2019). It was at the start of July 2020, when I decided to order a drone for me.  As I didn't have any idea what's good and what's not, I just headed to Amazon and looked for best-selling drones/ quadcopters. I did order under $100 SnapTain 650 D, but once it was out for shipping and I started to familiarize better with the product from the description, I understood that this drone most probably is not for me - I was…


Amazon Fire Tablet 7 Review

| 3 views

I ordered Amazon Fire Tablet 7 at the end of 2019 as a Christmas gift to our almost 18-month old baby girl. It took some two weeks before the gadget was actually delivered to us here in Georgia.  I wanted to have something cheap enough it wouldn't be sad if the baby would drop or broke and also something smart enough to use Alexa with. I've been a huge fan of the Amazon Echo device since August 2019.  Amazon Alexa Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - Smart speaker Review And that's how I decided to go with…

How To Sync Files Between Samsung Galaxy Phones (Smart Switch)

| 18 views

Samsung Smart Switch seamlessly transfers contacts, photos, music, videos, messages, notes, calendars and more to virtually any Samsung Galaxy device. After we bought a new Samsung Galaxy A6 phone I thought it will be a pain to transfer files from the old and broken Samsung Galaxy A3, as I thought it will involve cables or at least a lot of e-mailing files and folders (not the best backup, right?) Huge was my surprise and excitement after I found Samsung Smart Switch app, which seems works…


Samsung Galaxy A6 32GB (2018) Review

| 1 views

Samsung Galaxy A6 was first released in May 2018. We bought it as the replacement phone for Samsung Galaxy A3, to whom glass cracked on the rocks in Georgia (in the yard of Iosebis Duqani) while we traveled to the region of Kakheti. As the repair cost was about the half price of a new one, we decided to go for a brand new and more powerful phone. 2 year lifetime is good for a phone, at least that's what I believe so. Bought this phone during Black Friday sale in Georgia (Tbilisi) at AltaOk…


TP-Link TL-WN725N 150Mbps Wireless N Nano USB Adapter Review

| 1 views

TP-Link is a popular brand in Georgia, and most probably in CIS region, manufacturing Wireless routers and wireless adapters (probably a lot of other useful gadgets as well). I remember about 10 years ago I used a PCI WIFI adapter to have a WiFi functionality for a desktop PC. Now, in 2018, when moving into a new office, I decided it would be cool to get rid of at least some of the wiring for or desktop computers. And here comes miniature, I would even say nano-sized TP-Link Wireless adapter…
