    Mi band 4 is my favorite 😍 once from all other gadgets
    I also applied screen protector but it reduced the shine of mi band 4.
    That's why I'm using it 😋

    There are so many different Android phones for even less money. You don't need to spend $600 on a phone. The only reason she chose the OnePlus and not any others is so that Apple doesn't look stupidly priced as it is. The OnePlus is so much better in every way to even the iPhone 11 Pro Max. There is no reason ever to buy an iPhone. The Pixel 3a is $400 to start great inexpensive phone. Then there are the $250 options from LG and Samsung their "lower" end phones are fantastic for the price. If you are like most people that just call text and Facebook you don't need to spend $1000 or even $600 on a phone. Android phones in the $250 range are more than enough for many people. Apple suckers their customers into thinking you have to spend so much on a phone. Those are Apple lies. Most people won't even push inexpensive phones as far as they can go. There isn't one reason to buy iPhones. High-end Android phone have much better specs and many more features on the less expensive side there is no iPhone the is a good price. Don't buy Apple anything if you care at all about value Apple is the worst always.

    Since when OnePlus 7 Pro is an alternative to anything? OP IS one of the best smartphones today and every power user wants it, if anything u should have told us an alternative to that, since is quite pricey

    I wanted a smartwatch for use with my Android phone, but wasn't prepared to pay for the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active *2* so I simply bought the first generation Watch Active instead. It was half the price. All I missed was a larger display (due to smaller bezels) more accurate GPS/heart rate and that gimmicky virtual scroll wheel.

    Great choices! I was eying the Soundcore Liberty 2s before I settled on the Aukey t10s which are fantastic for around $100 USD. The best feature is the sliding case and qi wireless charging. I'd also suggest the Fossil Sport line which rivals the Samsung Gear wearables.

    recommending the xr at 599 compared to the 11 at 699 is just stupid. The one year longer support alone is almost worth it. 4 years for 599 or 5 years for 699 PLUS the better hardware with the flexibility of an ultrawide.
    It's pretty simple, I don't get why people would recommend the xr at 599

    I've been rocking the AmazeFit Bip for over a year and it's awesome. I just wanted notifications, HR/workout tracking, and month long battery life and it does all of that. It's a great cheap replacement for those who loved the Pebble watch.
