Great Savings: Samsung Power Bundle (Wireless Charging Pad + Dual-Port Vehicle Charger)

20180106_000706

Since I changed to Note 8, I wanted to buy another charger to use outside my home.
Although Note 8 comes with a connector so that you can still use your old micro USB cable, I still wanted to buy another set of USB-C cable because it is more convenient.

I went to Samsung’s website and there was a promotion for their Power Bundle charger which includes a wireless charging pad, a dual-port vehicle charger, a USB-C cable and a micro USB cable. The price is only $39.99 from the original price of $99.99. ๐Ÿ˜ย Samsung website does not sell this product but there were 2 online retailers (Walmart & Amazon) who do. I bought mine from Walmart and I received it today.. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was surprised to see 2 micro USB cables and an extra fast charger adapter. The website and the box did not indicate that there is an adapter and another micro USB cable. So it was really a pleasant surprise to see them in the box. The vehicle charger is also a fast charger:

People should avail of the discounted power bundle because it is really worth it! Last year, I bought a samsung charger (1 fast charger adapter & 1 micro USB cable) for $30.00. Now, you can get all for $39.99!

S7 Edge & Note 8 Camera Comparison

I really loved my S7 Edge and its camera features when I first had it..
It has been almost 2 years now since I got my S7 Edge, but it gave up on me recently when the screen was damaged (there is a blinking white blank portion of the screen): ๐Ÿ˜ญ
20180105_230700I was blessed to receive a Samsung Note 8 gift from my cousin last Christmas!
So I wanted to show how great is Note 8’s camera.

What I like most about Note 8’s camera is the Live Focus function.. โค๏ธ
You can focus on your subject and make the background blurry:20180105_233023

And you can use the Live Focus function for selfies too!

You can also use stickers using your Note 8 camera (you don’t need to use apps like Snapchat, Snow, etc). Photos are also clear/sharp when you use the zoom function.

Below are examples of photos taken with a S7 Edge camera & a Note 8 camera. I will add more photos next time, but for now, I will show 2 examples:

Samsung “Fast Charge” Wireless Charging Stand

20160407_161552
As I have said in my previous post (Samsung S7 Edge Led Wallet Cover), I also purchased Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand.. ๐Ÿ™‚
Maximizing the 30% discount I received, I purchased the charger forย $48.99 + $4.29 tax (Free Shipping)– Original price was $69.99 + tax.

Just to inform you guys, unlike Iphones which can be fully charged in 2 hours, Samsung smartphones take around 4 hours to charge.
So the “Fast Charge” term actually means 2 hours.
However, please keep in mind that Samsung smartphone’s battery can definitely last longer than Iphone’s battery.

Inside the Box:

Fast Charge Wireless Stand, Cable, Fast Charging Adapter & a Quick Start Guide

Actually it is really easy to use.

Once you put your phone on the stand, a circle will pop-up on ur screen indicating the current percentage ofย your battery.

Then, you will see a small blue light in the bottom of the stand to indicate that your phone is charging while green light means your phone is fully charged.

Good thing with the stand is that you can easily take your phone and there is no need to plug & unplug the phone too often.
However, your charging will always be interrupted unless you just leave your phone as it is for 2 hours.

Samsung Wide Selfie Camera Function

Screenshot_20160412-204150While I was playing around the camera functions of my phone (Samsung S7 Edge), I saw a Wide Selfie mode.

You just have to tilt your camera left & right to capture the sides.
I am really amazed at how innovative Samsung can be with their products.

Here isย my sample of the Wide Selfie Mode:
