iPhone 7+ Unboxing

My latest switch from Android (Samsung) to iOS has probably been the best yet. Every upgrade I tend to switch from one mobile platform to the other, as I am constantly looking for something different. I don’t prefer just upgrading to the next phone in the same industry, unless there are drastic changes (which is pretty uncommon year to year anymore). I like the full switch– look, feel, OS, etc.

Both sides have their pro’s and con’s. Anyone who says otherwise is either paid to say so or they’re unable to understand how each OS works. With that said my latest switch to the iPhone 7+ has been one of my favorites thus far. Several people are not too pleased with the 7 and 7+, a lot of this is due to the removal of the headphone jack. For me, this causes no concern, as I have made the full switch to Bluetooth (headphones, house speakers, vehicle, etc.) On top of that, the new on-board speakers in the iPhone 7+ are the best I have ever heard from a mobile phone.

Beyond the excellent sound quality, the added waterproof feature by eliminating the headphone jack had me very intrigued. I have tested its resistance and immersion to water (to an extent) and it passed as expected. Both camera’s perform well, though slightly behind some competitors. Lastly the battery life has been the most impressive for me so far. Granted I did switch from an Android with a smaller battery and known Android OS extras, which often hindered its full capability.

There are also many others that dislike the new iPhone(s), because they just don’t see enough change from it’s predecessors. To those, I suggest you make the full platform change from time-to-time. For me the change has always been back and forth between iOS and Android, though the latest push from Google with the ‘Pixel’is hard to ignore. I could see them jumping into the mix with the other top dogs very, very soon.

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO One

Recently I purchased the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO One gaming headset from Amazon. After a few weeks of use I can say without hesitation these have vastly improved my gaming experience. I would suggest this headset for anyone looking for one on a budget. You can find these on Amazon for around $55 new or $35 certified refurbished.

For me, I mostly play the Call of Duty franchise, most recently Modern Warfare Remastered and also some sports games (2K, Madden, FIFA, etc.). With that said this headset mostly improves the COD experience as it allows you to hear others coming from any direction so you’re able to react quickly.

This also comes with the controller adapter, which saves you around $25 as most headsets don’t offer the adapter for plugging directly into the controller. The detachable mic is nice and easy to remove for when you aren’t playing with friends or anyone else you want to talk to. I personally saved the extra $20 for the new one and purchased the certified refurbished version, which you will find I do pretty often for things I’m unsure if I will like initially. Also coming from such a reputable company like Turtle Beach and sold by Amazon, I’m confident, if something were to go wrong with the headset after a short amount of time they would take care of the issue.
