[nidokidos] Remember These Things While Buying Second-hand Smartphones

 

Remember These Things While Buying Second-hand Smartphones
 
Thinking of buying a used smartphone because it's an awesome deal? You may be right, but it is always better to keep a checklist with you while purchasing gadgets second-hand.
Keep the following 7 tips in mind before you buy a second-hand smartphone to get the best deal...
 
 
 
 

Ask for bill, box and accessories
 
Asking for bill not only assures that the seller is not giving you a stolen product but also makes it easy for you if you ever need to sell it or replace it (Apple replaced some iPhone 5 units two years after its launch, but only to those with proper bills). The box helps you check IMEI number for added verification.
If you don't get original accessories, you can always ask the seller to lower the price by a few hundred rupees.
 
 
 
 
 
2GB RAM minimum
 
Phones with 2GB RAM have become common even under Rs 10,000 (think Lenovo A7000, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and Micromax Yu Yureka), so it's important that whatever used phone you buy should have a minimum of 2GB RAM. Of course, you will have to settle for 1GB RAM smartphones if your budget tops out at Rs 5,000-6,000.
Also check the processor, since Mediatek-powered phones that are over a year old do not deliver good performance. Try to score a second-hand smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip since these last longer. Intel-powered smartphones would be good too, but they affect battery life adversely.
 
 
 
 
 

Check if it's stolen
 
Many a times, sellers may try to peddle stolen smartphones to unsuspecting buyers. If that is a concern, then ask the seller to give you the box along with the smartphone, since the chances of a thief having the box are very, very slim.
If the box is not available, then check the phone's IMEI number by dialling *#06# and checking the IMEI number on phone tracking websites like IMEIdetective.com. If the device is stolen and the owner has put in the IMEI number for tracking, then you will be saved from buying a stolen product and can even help the owner get his/her phone back.
 
 
 
 
 
Physically check the hardware
 
You will obviously check the body of the smartphone to see if it's chipped or has scruff marks. But it is important to dig deeper.
If you are buying the smartphone in-person, then bring a laptop and a USB cable. Connect the laptop and the smartphone to see if it charges well and does not show issues while transferring data.
Also, insert your own sim card to ensure that it catches the network easily. Surf the web, download a few apps, take a few photos etc to make sure that the unit is not defective in any way.
 
 
 
 
 
Prefer paying via a secure channel like PayPal
 
Websites like eBay allow you to pay via PayPal, which makes it easier to get your money back in case you decide to return the smartphone for some reason.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Try buying on Facebook
 
Facebook has become a great place to buy/sell goods as it lets you see the seller's profile (to an extent at least), their activities on the group where the goods are being sold, and check what others are offering for the same smartphone.
It also lets you warn others of a bad product being sold by sellers.
 
 
 
 
 
Look for warranty
 
Many a times, buyers upgrade their smartphones soon after buying a handset, sometimes even within months. This means that official warranty is still valid on these handsets, making them an excellent buy for you. So, obviously, look for sellers who are looking to sell phones with (at least some) warranty.
Also, keep an eye out for smartphones that have third-party warranties, since these also mean that you get some damage protection, which is better than none.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4 Things You Absolutely Must Know Before Buying a Used iPhone
 
It's a good time to look on Craigslist and eBay for the older models that have just dropped significantly in price.

GCF: Birdwatching

Birdwatching is a passion of mine, and my wife has always been
impressed by my ability to identify each species solely by its song.

To help her learn a little bit about birds, I bought a novelty
kitchen clock that sounds a different bird call for each hour.

We were relaxing in our yard when a cardinal started singing.

"What's that?!" I challenged.

She listened closely. "It's three o'clock."

[nidokidos] 2016 Oscars and Leo's Bad Luck

 

88th Academy Awards - 2016 Oscars
 
The 88th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of 2015 and is scheduled to take place on February 28, 2016, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California beginning at 5:30 p.m. PST. During the ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony will be televised in the United States by ABC, and will be produced by David Hill and Reginald Hudlin. Actor Chris Rock will host the show for the second time, having previously hosted the 77th ceremony held in 2005.
 

Here are the nomination of Best Pictures of 2015
 
The Revenant 2015
 
 
While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack. When his hunting team leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back home to his beloved family. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, Glass treks through the wintry terrain to track down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.
 
 

Bridge of Spies 2015
 
 
 
During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, Powers' only hope is New York lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks), recruited by a CIA operative to negotiate his release. Donovan boards a plane to Berlin, hoping to win the young man's freedom through a prisoner exchange. If all goes well, the Russians would get Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), the convicted spy who Donovan defended in court.
 
 
 
Mad Max: Fury Road 2015
 
 
 
 
Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside the desert fortress the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads the despot's five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a loner and former captive. Fortified in the massive, armored truck the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord and his henchmen in a deadly high-speed chase through the Wasteland.
 
 

The Big Short 2015
 
 
 
 
In 2008, Wall Street guru Michael Burry realizes that a number of subprime home loans are in danger of defaulting. Burry bets against the housing market by throwing more than $1 billion of his investors' money into credit default swaps. His actions attract the attention of banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), hedge-fund specialist Mark Baum (Steve Carell) and other greedy opportunists. Together, these men make a fortune by taking full advantage of the impending economic collapse in America.
 
 
 

The Martian 2015
 
 
 
 
When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crew mates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.
 

Brooklyn 2015
 
 
 
 
An Irish immigrant (Saoirse Ronan) in 1950s New York falls for a tough Italian plumber (Emory Cohen), but faces temptation from another man (Domhnall Gleeson) when she returns to her homeland for a visit.
 
 

Room 2015
 
 
 
 
Held captive for years in an enclosed space, a woman (Brie Larson) and her 5-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay) finally gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time.
 
 
 
Spotlight 2015
 
 
 
 
In 2001, editor Marty Baron of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys. Led by editor Walter "Robby" Robinson (Michael Keaton), reporters Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo), Matt Carroll and Sacha Pfeiffer interview victims and try to unseal sensitive documents. The reporters make it their mission to provide proof of a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.
 
 
 
 
Leo's Bad Luck
 
Leonardo DiCaprio is quite the daredevil, and he told Ellen about a few of his close calls!
