LG Nexus 5X Case, Google Nexus 5X, Toiko [Invisible-Guard]

Standard

LG Nexus 5X case, Google nexus 5x, Toiko [Invisible-Guard].A semi-transparent,protective case made of two layers perfect fit for LG NEXUS 5x, LG H790,h791 Google 2015 mobile phone case (Clear)

​I have been using this Nexus 5X case for a few weeks now. The case is easy to put on the phone and comes in two parts. It has narrow bezzel like piece and a back piece that lock together. It offers a bumper around the screen to prevent it from getting broken if the phone is dropped. It also adds to the camera and flash and includes an open space for easy access to the finger print reader. It has been doing a great job protecting my phone from breaks or scratches. My charging cable goes in smoothly through the space provided by the case, but my headphones don’t seem to fit nicely in the slot provided. At times I have thought my headphones were in all of the way when they were not.

The down side of this case is the fact that is clear. If there is even a tiny bit of dirt on the case or phone it shows up really well and almost appears magnefied. Scratches and finger prints are also really noticeable because of the glossy/shiny nature of the plastic. The glossy/shiny nature of this case also makes it a bit harder to grip.
Pros:

  1. Easy to put on phone
  2. Offers great protection

Cons:

  1. Dirt & scratches highly visible on clear plastic
  2. Headphones cable doesn’t fit well
  3. Slick plastic doesn’t allow for much of a grip

    USB Type C Cables – CHOE 2 Pack Hi-speed USB Type C to Type C

    Standard

    USB Type C Cable CHOE 2Pack [3.3ft & 6.6ft] Hi-speed USB Type C to Type C (USB-C to USB-C) Cable for Google Pixel/Pixel XL, new MacBook, Lumia 950/950xl, Nexus 5x/6p, ChromeBook Pixel and More

    ReviewOrdered: 20 October 2016

    ​This is my second time purchasing CHOE Brand cables and I am again incredibly satisfied. I lost my original USB C to USB C cable a few months ago, so I have been forced to make due with adapters. I had completely forgotten how wonderful it is to have the high speed charging capability of a proper USB C cable. Needless to say these cables work great!

    The cables apppear to be made from a sturdy, but flexible material. They are more akin to the expensive high quality USB cables than they are to cheaper models. I am pretty confident that because the cables are relatively thick, they won’t easily fray or crack which is a common problem in cheaper thinner cables.

    I like the fact that this is a 2 pack set of cables that are of different sizes. I have the 6 foot cable plugged into a charger that is in an area where I move around a lot. This has made it so I don’t have to unplug my phone everytime I move. The 6 ft cable also comes with a velcro band that you can use to tie it back, shorten it, or roll it up. To get a reusable velcro band for the larger cable is really nice. I am keeping the 3 ft cable on my desk because in that area I don’t move around as much.
    Overall I am quite pleased with this purchase. These cables work great! They are sturdy and they should hopefully last me quite a while!

    Pros:

    1. Varied sizes of cables allows you to have a cable with a long reach for moving about and a shorter reach for when it can stay in one place

    2. Looks and feels like a high quality and more expensive cable

    3. Thick, sturdy cable should hold up well to wear and tear

    Cons:

    1. None so far … works great!

    Adfilic Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

    Standard

    Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Flash SALE, Cheap Powerful Top Boombox Stereo Rated Sound, Sony Portable, Works Best For iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Great for Outdoors, HD Bose Bass, Car Hands Free – Black

    At only 4.5 x 2.5 x 2.3 inches, the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker is very small. Despite the small size of this speaker, it produces a surprisingly rich and full sound. We have another bluetooth speaker that is about twice the size of this speaker, so you would assume it would produce louder and clearer sounds. However this is not the case. The small size of the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker makes it easy to travel with and very portable. It can easily fit in a purse or pocket.

    In testing this product, I played a large range of music styles and all of the music sounded great playing through the speaker. Connecting it to a device via bluetooth was very easily accomplished. Though I doubt I will utilize this feature, the speaker does have a built in FM Radio which works relatively well. The instructions were easy to follow. The only major difficulty I encountered was in adjusting the volume of the speaker. You have to hold down a button to raise or lower the volume and the button choices are not overly intuitive.

    I am incredibly impressed with this speaker. Both the size and price of the speaker would lead you to believe that it wouldn’t have very good sound quality. I was in fact very skeptical when purchasing this speaker, but I shouldn’t have been because it is a really impressive device.

    Pros:

    1. Small Size
    2. High Quality Sound for Speaker Size
    3. Excellent Volume Range

    Cons:

    1. Volume adjustment not intuitive or easy to perform
    2. Button labels are confusing

    I still like the Google Cardboard Kit & Device, but I did want to point out one major risk with it. While using the device, I managed to poke myself in the eye with one of the sharp corners and ended up scratching my cornea. I was lucky that I did not end up with an infection from that scratch and that healed up rather quickly. It’s certainly not a risk I would have thought of with using the device, but now that it has happened to me it makes sense. Anything you can put near your eyes can be a danger to them. What does surprise me is that the kit makes no mention of potential injuries that can occur to the eye.

    Would I revise my review of this kit? Yes absolutely, simply because injuring myself was way to easy. I can also see why Google is moving away from the Google Cardboard Device. It is a very clever, low cost, virtual reality device, but there are risks when using it that would not manifest with something constructed of a different material.

    I have very sensitive skin, but in testing this oil it did not irritate my skin or cause breakouts. It also didn’t leave my skin feeling oily like some oils can. Prior to purchasing this oil, I did not know much about the benefits of it, but did research them prior to making a decision. Though.I cannot confirm any of the direct benefits I do know that the oil does do a good job of moisturizing the skin. The rosehip oil comes with in a dark plastic bottle with both a dropper and a pump to get it out of the bottle. I currently prefer the dropper, but it is nice to have more than one option.

    Cons:

    1. Cannot verify claims of younger and healthier looking skin

    USB Type C Cable, CHOE 2Pack [3.3ft & 6.6ft] 56k ohm pull-up resistor USB C to USB A Cable

    Standard

    USB Type C Cable, CHOE 2Pack [3.3ft & 6.6ft] 56k ohm pull-up resistor USB C to USB A Cable for Galaxy Note 7, OnePlus 3, LG G5, HTC 10, new MacBook and Other Type-C Supported Devices.

    These are not USB Type C to USB Type C cables, so if that is what you are looking for you are in the wrong place. However if you are like me and have a bunch of regular USB charging ports and no brand new computers, then these cables do the job perfectly. These cables are USB Type C to USB 2.0 and work well for charging newer phones that only have USB Type C ports. I haven’t tried them with data transfers yet and probably won’t. If I was pweformib lots of data transfers, I would look for USB Type C to USB 3.0 or Type C cables instead. That being said, these are incredibly nice cables.

    The cables apppear to be made from a sturdy, but flexible material. They are more akin to the expensive high quality USB cables than they are to cheaper models. I am pretty confident that because the cables are relatively thick, they won’t easily fray or crack which is a common problem in cheaper thinner cables.

    I like the fact that this is a 2 pack set of cables that are of different sizes. I have the 6 foot cable plugged into a charger that is in an area where I move around a lot. This has made it so I don’t have to unplug my phone everytime I nove. The 6 ft cable also comes with a velcro band that you cam use to tie it back, shorten it, or roll it up. To get a reusable velcro band for the larger cable is really nice. I am keeping the 3 ft cable on my desk because in that area I don’t move around as much.

    Overall I am quite pleased with this purchase. They may not be the fastest or prettiest cables around, but they are sturdy and they should hopefully last me quite a while!

    Pros;

    1. Varied sizes of cables allows you to have a cable with a long reach for moving about or far away ugs and shorter reach  for when it can stay in one place
    2. Looks and feels like a high quality and more expensive cable
    3. Thick, sturdy cable should hold up well to wear and tear

    Cons:

    1. USB Type C to USB 2.0 Connection instead of 3.0 or 3.1, which means it isn’t as fast as other options

    Top Rated PokeBall Spice & Herb Grinder by Expert Chef

    Standard

    Top Rated PokeBall Spice & Herb Grinder by Expert Chef

    The Pokeball Spice & Herb Grinder comes in a small and sturdy package. The grinder is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and it is relatively light weight, making it very easy to use.

    The grinder consists of three parts.The base and lid are magnetic, while the center piece contains a screen and screws into the base.The lid and center piece contain the teeth used to grind up the spices and herbs. For the grinder to stay shut and work well all three parts of the grinder will only fit one way. The base has a small flat part that allows it to sit only one way on the counter or table.

    I love the look and feel of this grinder, but the size and weight of it may limit  how much it can really do.

    Pros:

    1. Design is nice, no flaws, and looks clean and shiny
    2. Smaller size makes it easier to manipulate
    3. Sharp, thick grinding teeth

    Cons:

    1. Small size and shallow base will limit the amount of spice/herb that be ground up at any one time
