    Choosing an S10

    I'm in a bit of a pickle - I can't choose between an S10e and the regular S10. The main point of conflict is the camera - is the "telephoto" camera worth it? Can't seem to find any good article on the real usage of it. Otherwise I like the "e" better. Or maybe I should keep rocking my S6, the...

    iPhone xr worth the upgrade from Google pixel 2xl

    Is the iPhone xr worth the upgrade from a Google pixel 2 xl. I really hate using Google. I know I lose 1440p video watching but 1080p is good enough for a phone. I'm on Verizon. There's alot if good reviews so far. Lack of the 3d touch don't mind that.

    Chopping my sim card to make a nano, it it too old?

    Just wanted to check, with anyone in the know, whether I am safe to go ahead and chop my sim card and make it into a nano sim? My concern is, that since it is more than ten years old then the chip and/or internal connecting wires might be more exposed towards the edges. My sim, below. Tom.
