The One Plus 3T – Worth the Wait!

I was skeptical at getting the one plus 3 due to not having advancements in terms of network connectivity. Unfortunately both the one plus 3 and 3T still don’t support above the Cat 6 LTE which only provides a download rate of up to 300 mbps. That being said, everything else on this handset is worth every fils.

The newest additions to the One Plus 3 with the one plus 3T were 4 main upgrades :

  • a processor upgrade, its now getting the same processor on the pixel, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821: Quad-core Kyro CPU, Adreno 530 CPU, 6GB RAM
  • A bigger batter, 3400 mAh instead of 3000 mAh
  • A 16 MP front facing camera instead of the 8 MP found on the OP3.
  • A version with up-to 128 GB of storage.

Overall its a great handset, specs wise its came in a good time, especially after the failure of the note 7, and those like myself who hated the pixel for limiting the storage options.

 

Overwatch – The New Addiction

Yousef Gaming Leave a Comment

Overwatch is a First Person Shooter game, which I came across when a couple of my colleagues at work were discussing group play and their different levels. I’m a COD fan but recently have started to get board from playing so I was open for new suggestions. Downloaded it last night and at first it was a little confusing its not as structured as COD but that makes it more fun, less predictable and easier in the same time. I’m currently playing vs my levels which is starting from, hence why i’m saying easier, but i’m leveling up pretty well day by day. It costs around 20 KD and is downloadable online for PC’s, Macs and on the PS4 (i think). But isn’t available through Steam and you have to get Battle.net’s app to download the game, which will eat 6.5 GBs from your hard drive. Graphics are overall Ok, they don’t depict reality so they are not as sharp as COD but ok and interesting overall, finding games online takes less than a minute and you’re ready to battle your way through.

Here’s one of the game’s trailer :

  • FDD-LTE: Bands 1/3/5/7/8/20
  • TDD-LTE: Bands 38/40/41

I’m currently thinking through my options, my experience wasn’t all that good with the OnePlus 2 model, as I ordered the US version (becuase they didn’t really announce the multi-region or not specs early enough) so I ended up having a phone I like, but wouldn’t use mainly due to not getting the internet speeds that I look for in a handset. The other not 100% deal breaker is the VoLTE, there’s no source that indicates that the handset would support VoLTE and many networks are now supporting this feature meaning, the phone does not have to go to 3G when you make a voice call and your data sessions will not be interrupted. I think i’ll wait a month or 2 before I decide. We’ve got the iphone in a couple of months and the Note 7. I’ve been away from the Samsung Note Series for a while, but i’m willing to switch if the iPhone 7 is an iDissapointment.
If you are willing to order, here’s the link to the UK store (saves you the hassle)

I was looking to sell my Nikon D7000 with it’s accessories (pictured below) and really didn’t want the hassle of having to pass by someone to showcase the camera, or did I even have the time. So I passed by DD Cameras Store located in Deiya Co-op in the mezzanine, where they have a good selection of used Camera’s and gear for sale and would sell your camera and gear for a very very very small fee. They also rent cameras and lenses which you can try out in the store and rent for the number of days you have a shoot instead of buying the lenses.
