Review: Y3E Power Bank

Y3E Power Bank

Sometimes when you are on the go and cannot charge your phone with the normal charger, it would be nice to have a portable power bank with you. I wanted to find a small enough bank that would be comfortable to carry and with large enough capacity to charging one or two mobile phones. One such power bank is the Y3E.

Review: Ugoos UT1 Android Set-Top TV Box

Ugoos UT1 Android Set-Top TV Box

Having owned an AppleTV for about a year or so, I wanted to have more options with an Android TV box. Although my AppleTV is jailbroken, it still has a very limited number of apps. There are no apps for HBO Nordic, Viaplay or our national TV companies that offer a lot of content via Android apps.

Review: ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini

ZTE Nubia Z5 mini

My wife dropped her Samsung Galaxy S3 and shattered its screen. Having owned a Xiaomi Mi-2 for a year myself and being a very happy with it, I decided to look for a Chinese Android phone for her as well. I am very disappointed with Samsung because they are heavily overpriced for the hardware and they have proprietary bloat software that is useless, for me at least. Chinese manufacturers have plenty of alternatives that have powerful hardware, close to a vanilla Android and moderate pricing. After going through the phones I decided to buy a ZTE Nubia Z5 mini for her.

Review: Jerseys From Aliexpress.com

Allen Iverson Olympic Jersey From Aliexpress.com

I have previously ordered NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL and soccer (football) jerseys from jerseysfromchinaforcheap (my other review on jerseysfromchinaforcheap), supejerseys and jerseysusa.us. A reader of my blog gave me a hint that Aliexpress also sells jerseys at competitive prices and without postage, no matter if you only order one jersey at a time. I ordered one jersey as a test and here’s what I got. Continue reading

Review: Xiaomi Mi-2 Camera

The Xiaomi Mi-2 has pretty amazing camera specifications. The main camera has an 8 megapixel sensor and 27 mm wide-angle optics with a large 2.0 aperture. Its speed is unparalleled: 8 frames per second. The video camera can record full-HD 1080p at 30 fps and “HD Ready” 720p resolution at a staggering 90 fps. Only professional equipment has had similar speeds – until now. Even the secondary camera has a large 2 megapixel sensor. Continue reading

Review: Xiaomi Mi-2

The smartphone community has been mesmerized by a Chinese newcomer Xiaomi and its latest high-end Android phone, the Mi-2. Packed with an amazing set of newest hardware and priced about the half of its better-known counterparts it has quickly become a daydream of technocrats around the globe. In this review I will write sections as I use the phone more and test different aspects of it. I welcome you to visit the review later on to see more qualities of it covered. Continue reading

Review: Supejerseys.com & Wholesalesportgoods.com

*** UPDATE February 14, 2014: The domain has been seized by the NFL. ***

Domain Seized by the NFL

Domain Seized by the NFL

*** UPDATE March 04, 2013: jerseysusa.us is the new site of supejerseys.com and it is owned by the same company. I have already ordered successfully jerseys there and I will write my review of it soon. HOWEVER, I have received reports from my blog readers that wholesalesportgoods.com has problems delivering products and I have confirmed this myself in my latest order. So I DO NOT RECOMMEND you order anything from wholesalesportgoods.com for the time being. ***

*** UPDATE November 23, 2012: Supejerseys.com has been updated and is back online again. ***

*** UPDATE November 16, 2012: People have been asking me what happened to supejerseys.com because the website does not respond anymore. I asked this from the customer service of wholesalesportgoods.com (because they are owned by the same company) and they replied that supejerseys.com is currently updating and will reopen soon. ***

The Chinese web store I bought jerseys from in the past quit, so I needed to find a new resource for high quality, yet cheap American sport jerseys. A friend of mine had previously ordered from supejerseys.com and recommended it so I decided to give it a try. I soon discovered that the same company owns another web store, wholesalesportgoods.com that has a variety of other clothing available and it would be possible to combine the two orders into one and get the whole package delivered for free.
