TommyLog TECH- The Waterproof Test – Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge #VZWBuzz #AD

10 Oct
October 10, 2016

Hey Kids it’s Tommy and for today’s TommyLog TECH I want to talk to you about how my water park experience was so much better because I had my waterproof Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This sweet smartphone was provided to be my Migrate friends at Verizon. You all know that my opinions are my own but I have to say that out loud.

Before I get into the fun, let me dive into some gory details. The S7 Edge is rated at IP 68. What does that mean?. IP stands for international protection rating.  The six and eight in the rating actually means different things. The first number stands for solid protection. The higher the number, the better the protection. Protection of six which is the best solid protection protects from harmful dust. The second number in the IP rating is moisture. IP rating of eight means that the device can handle swims in the tub, the sink, the toilet, or the pool at depth’s over 3 feet. Samsung has rated the S7 edge at depths of up to 5 feet. That’s pretty incredible. I think you could have the power of this smart phone  \at the water park with you – – not just getting pictures of the action but being part of the action. This is critical!

OK so back to the Clifford family mini-water park vacation. The kids just love the water park and they’re screaming “DAD! DAD!!” come and join us. So I wanted to put the S7 edge to the test. It went down water slides, it was with me in the in the pool, it was in the area where we got water pour all over our heads. It went everywhere. This phone went where no phone has dared to go before.

As you can see by the video I didn’t miss a thing.

My only gripe, is that I wasn’t fully prepared and I wish I had a lanyard of some sort to hold the phone. So if I lost grip on a ride or something the phone wouldn’t fly away. But other than that, the waterproof capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is 100% Tommy approved!!

TommyLog TECH – It’s the Little Things That Matter #VZWBuzz #bettermatters #AD

09 Aug
August 9, 2016

Hey Kids it’s Tommy and today I want to start off by telling you I have been glued to my TV screen watching the RIO 2016 Olympics! Tonight I was watching men’s swimming and the time separating the gold from silver metals was less than 11 hundredths of a second. 4 years ago swimmer Michael Phelps won by a staggering one hundredth of a second (0.01) – just a blink of the eye. This made me think, what’s true in the Olympics is true in the tech world. It’s the little things that matter and let me show you the little things that matter most to me with my Tile, Moto360 smart watch and lastly the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

 

TILE

Tile has quickly become one of my favorite Bluetooth accessories. I love that it is so small- smaller than my Honda key. It just hangs there on my key ring, ready and waiting for the call – to help find my keys at a moments notice. The other little thing I just love is the power and activation button. It’s the “e” in tile. Just press it and you are ready to go! Such a great design.

Moto 360 by Motorola

The Moto 360 is my go to smart watch of choice. I’ve wore the Apple Watch but prefer the round face of the Moto 360. It stands out in the crowd and I love that about this watch. The design engineers at Motorola really took care in designing this gen 2 devise. I love the fact that the bottom is offset, so you don’t bump it when you bend your wrist. The next little thing I love about the Moto 360 is the Gorilla Glass. I never have to worry about the next bump, ding or scratch situation as this stuff is strong and protects this beauty perfectly. Gone are the days of scratched or gouged watch faces here.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Galaxy S7 Edge is just an amazing handset. Top of the line all the way, but its really the little things, ok maybe some of them are pretty major. Top of this list is the curved screen. It’s different than any other manufactures handset and it’s just slick. Smooth and useful you can see the time and news on the edge there. The feel of the screen is just so unique. The next little thing I enjoy is the wireless charging. How sweet is it to just plop the phone down on a wireless charger and it just starts charging. “Look mom – no wires!” Not even the iPhone 6s has this! Keeping with the wireless theme, the next little thing that just rocks about the S7 Edge is NFC and Samsung Pay. The ability to have contactless payment adds to the excitement about this handset. Lastly, waterproof! Having a smartphone waterproofs to 5 ft. is just amazing. It’s one of those features that you forget about – till you need it.

So there you have it kids. The top little things I love about some of my favorite tech accessories. Cause it’s the little things that matter! Better Matters!

THANK YOU to my good friends at Verizon.

Hey Kids it’s Tommy and today I’m joined by my tech partner in crime Emma. Today we want, well mostly Emma since I can’t get a word in edgewise- to talk about how Emma uses Samsung Phones to film her own videos.

Emma Filming

Emma Filming using the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge smart phone.

Emma has the most vivid imagination of any 8-year-old child I have ever met. She loves to create scenes with her Littlest Pet Shop characters or more commonly called LPS in the kid inner circle. Emma one day picked up my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7 edge smart phones and the creativity just started flowing. So this kid with ZERO training starts filming 5, 10 even 15 minute videos all on her own; complete with script, dialog, hand painted characters and sets. I’m totally blown away at what she can accomplish! 1 video turned into 5 which turned into 20 – I think her total video count is somewhere close to 50 custom Emma videos uploaded to her own YouTube channel.

To help her with her filming, I got her a Joby GorillaPod tripod  (similar) as well as a tripod mount to hold smartphones.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7 edge is totally 100% Emma Approved!!

Emma would love it if you subscribed to her YouTube channel → https://www.youtube.com/emmaeclifford

TommyLog TECH – Help to the Rescue with Samsung+ #VZWBuzz #ad

05 Apr

Hey Kids it’s Tommy and for today’s Tommy log Tech, I want to talk to you about a great app I stumbled upon when poking around on my brand-new Samsung Galaxy S7 edge smart phone – – provided to me by my great friends of Verizon, my opinions on my own. If you recall, it’s been a few weeks since I got my new S7 edge and did the unboxing video for you  –and I’ve had loads of playtime with it. In my poking exploring, I stumbled upon the best self-help tool. This app is called Samsung+. Many smart phones come with apps that teach you how to use its amazing new features. And the Samsung+ app does just that. There’s a getting started area, there’s self help videos on how to use things like Samsung Pay or Galaxy Gear. There’s an area that shows you additional features like transferring your data from your old phone, or how to use the fast charging.

But the one thing that sets it apart from all other self-help apps that I’ve seen before, is the area called Active Help. Active Help has some amazing tools to help you when you need it most. Active Help allows you to search for known problems in its database. It has a built in scanning tool that scans your phone for issues like battery health, charging issues, free space on your storage – even looks for security issues with your Wi-Fi or if your phone has been rooted. This app is pretty amazing.

The Active Help portion of this app also allows you to initiate a tech-support phone call right from within the app. Not only can you make a phone call, you can open a 2-way video chat with a tech-support person at Samsung. I was so excited about this new feature; I wanted to test it for myself. Initiating a two-way video chat couldn’t be easier. Press the video chat button and away we went. It took maybe 10 or 15 seconds to connect and there was my new friend Andrea from Samsung ready to assist me with my troubles. How great is that? She helped solve my problem with ease. It was so cool seeing a face to my tech support helper!

Samsung’s Samsung+ App is totally 100% Tommy Approved and is a great reference tool for even the most advanced of users. I highly recommend taking a closer look.
