Samsung Gear S2 Watch

Samsung

The Samsug Gear S2 Watch is Samsungs new look on round smart watches. The Gears S2 is running Tizen OS not Android wear like many of use are used to but in reality Tizen has been around longer then Android wear and it is very refined. The most interesting feature of this new watch from samsung has to be the user interface. The Gear S2 has a rotating bezel that’s used to navigate through menus and apps and really adds to the watch design. The rotating bezel just makes so much sense i am surprised it hasnt been utilized before. Like many smart watches the Gear S2 is water resistant IP68 certified which is a must in my opinion.

Other specs include a 1.2 inche 360 by 360 302ppi display, bluetooth 4.1, 250mAh battery which is smaller then the normal 300mAh but should be enough for a day of use, 512mb of ram and 4gb storage. what are you getting with this watch over other devices on the market right now? Answer one amazing interface.

The released date for the Samsung Gear S2 watch is just around the corner in October according to Samsung. I havent seen pricing for the Gear S2 yet but i would guess that it would be around $349.00 since that seems to be the standard for watches in this catagorie. what do you think is this a device that you will be interested in? I am really looking forward to checking this device out. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.

Google is now a MVNO Carrier with Project Fi

Google is now a MVNO Carrier with Project Fi

Fi

Google Just announced that they will be entering the mobile carrier game with a new network called Project Fi or just Fi for short. This is a MVNO network (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) and will be using T-mobile and Sprint towers and coverage. So if you already use these networks in your area then Project Fi might be a good fit for you. Lets take a look at some of the features that will come with this new MVNO Project Fi

Features

1. Your data is secured through encryption when we connect you to open Wi-Fi hotspots. It’s like your data has a private tunnel to drive through.

2. Never pay for unused data. At the end of each month, you’ll get your unused data credited in dollars and cents, so you only pay for what you use.

3. Wifi Calling and Text just like many of the carriers are doing. also if you move away from that wifi your call will transfer to cell service without dropping the call.

4. Using Google Hangouts your number can be used to make and receive calls from youe computer, tablet, or phone of course.

there are c couple other small features that you can read more about here 

 Data Plans

  • Unlimited domestic talk and text
  • Unlimited international texts
  • Low-cost international calls
  • Wi-Fi tethering
  • Coverage in 120+ countries

Above is the basic features of every plan for $20. but you have to at least add a 1GB $10 data plan as well so lowest cost at this time is $30 a month which isn’t that bad if you don’t use much data.

Data rate work this way $10 for 1GB of data tahts it pretty simple. Example if you want 10GB of date it will cost you $100 plus $20 for the basic call and text giving you a $120 total.

NOTE Project Fi is only available on the Nexus 6 at this time. And is set up as a invite only program. I am sure that Google will be rolling it out to more device as time passes. And yes you can port your current number over to Project Fi. 

 

MY THOUGHTS

Is Google’s New Project Fi the right package for me? Well the short answer is a BIG NO. Let me explain, I am what you might call a power user and go through a ton of data each month well over 10GB to say the least. This kind of data usage would make my bill over $120 so it is much cheaper for me to get T-mobile’s $80 a month unlimited plan which is what i am on right now. Speaking of unlimited, Google really should have offered an unlimited package at a low price too. If Google really wants to be a player in the cell phone carrier arena then they are really going to have to step up there game. Now if you are a 1GB a month kind of person and are always on wifi at home and work then you could get a plan for as low as $30 a month, thats a deal.  So is Project Fi right for you? It all boils down to how you use your phone and it could be a great cheap package for your kids or something along those lines. It will be interesting to watch and see  the direction Google will take with Project Fi.
