The Ipaky Silicon back cover for the Huawei Mate 9

Few Clouds, 26°C

DBP Avenue

The Ipaky phone case for my Huawei Mate 9 that I ordered from Lazada arrived yesterday at the office.

I’ve been in the market for a better case for my Mate 9 and the Ipaky case did not disappoint. Fits like a T, Fingerprint resistant, looks cool on a Gold M9, all ports accounted for, etc. It also arrived way before the scheduled date so it’s a win for me. The price, at the time of this writing, is kinda on the steep side for this kind of case (TPU and silicon) but that’s the price we pay for something not readily available in shops right now.

Problem sending texts to Globe from Smart

Broken Clouds, 27°C

DBP Avenue

I’m still having difficulties sending SMS to my friends who are Globe users. Only them. My other contacts (Smart) can receive my text messages and I can receive theirs. SMART replied to my email yesterday advising me to restart my phone. That’s customer service for you! What a load of crock. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- if I had a better Globe network signal at my home in Andagao, I’d switch to them in a heartbeat. I’ve so had it up to here with SMART and their crappy customer service.

Checking out the Textra Messaging app for Android

I’m trying Textra Messaging App now. It allows one to customize almost everything on the app from colors to notifications to text sizes. I’ve tried sending an MMS too and it worked just fine. I think I’ll try it for a while and see how it goes. If I like it, I may just have found a replacement for Evolvesms.

No need to root my Huawei Mate 9 at this time

Scattered Clouds, 27°C

134 Quezon

Yesterday, I installed the AdClear app that I discovered online and to my surprise it works wonderfully without root! Rooting therefore, is not so much a priority now. It’s great to stay on stock with everything working rather than go ahead and root and risk some apps (especially the Camera)  Breaking as others have experienced. Time will tell if I’ll still root my Mate 9 but right now I’m staying put.
