Short Review:  One of the best phones on the market for the best price out there!  This phone is powerful, I MEAN POWERFUL!!!  It’s fast, snappy, speedy, great battery life, and more!! Screen is huge!  Screen is bright!!  Build quality is excellent..  This phone is GREAT!!!  This review is from the heart, its about my use.  It’s not a professional review like you would see on the tech sites

Pros
1.) Size/Screen – The large 6+ inch screen is great!!  It does have the notch, but I don’t mind the notch.  It makes the screen even larger and it looks nice!!  The size of the phone is thin and it fits great in both my hands and pockets.

2.) Powerful – This phone comes with several different configurations.  One includes 6GB ram and the other 8GB.   6GB is plenty and super snappy paired with the best mobile processor on the market currently!  This phone feels as snappy as my MS Surface.  I mean, this thing is awesome and great for anything or anyone that needs a powerful phone!

3.) Battery Life – I consider myself a very heavy user and so far my phone hasn’t died on me YET!! it makes it all day/night long!!

4.) Dash Charge – Works very well and is quick!

5.) Oxygen OS – I like O2OS.  It’s snappy.  It’s clean!! It’s “Naked”… It’s google!!  I really enjoy using it

6.) Price – The best part of the OnePlus 6?? PRICE!!!  Where else can you get the most powerful phone on the market for under $550!! NOWHERE!!!!!

Cons
1.) No wireless charging, but wireless charging sucks anyways

2.) Can’t find accessories in stores.  But they have plenty online

Man.. What else can I say?? I love oneplus and always have!!!!!

Cricket Wireless (Formally AIO Wireless) by AT&T

Today I want to review something a little different than my normal reviews.  I actually believe I have done this review before but hey another year has passed!  I want to review Cricket Wireless (The new Cricket by AT&T).  They have been my wireless provider since 2013 (The AIO Wireless days) and I am still VERY happy with them.  They have had their ups and downs, but all carriers have these.  The worst “down” was the so called “Cricket Crawl” where AT&T was saying they had no issues but thousands of folks posted daily to their Twitter, Facebook, and other channels but it was finally fixed.

A few things to note about Cricket

1.) They are tethered to 8Mbps – Don’t let this worry you!  I stream HD content, stream music daily, and even play multiplayer games with no issues.  8Mbps is PLENTY!  Apps from Google Play download very fast, system updates download in 15 – 20 minutes and so on.  While other carriers provide 15, 20, and even 40+Mbps on mobile phones, who really needs that?

2.) No Tethering except on THEIR phones and only limited phones at that – BUT I have an unlocked Huawei Mate 9 and I can tether just fine.  It’s mostly just “Carrier” phones that have tethering blocked.

3.) Network Priority – You will hear that Cricket receives lower priority and that a user will be deprioritized if they go over 20 or so GBs of data on the unlimited plan.  Let me tell you, this has NEVER happened to me and I used 50+ GBs of data all the time, every month!

Pros
1.) Network Coverage – While different locations might be much worse, around my home AT&T is about the best.  Most will say they are about the best anywhere.  Be sure to check coverage before you buy but hey its prepaid.  If it sucks, change carriers!

2.) No Contract – Need I say more?

3.) Cheap or Free phones – Remember when prepaid meant buying you own phones?  Cricket runs promos and normally has very cheap or even free phones!  I however buy much nicer phones than Cricket provides!

4.) SAVINGS – Lets do the math.  T-Mobile  $70 for their cheapest postpaid plan, plus a discounted IPhone 7 for say $15/month.  That’s $85/month for two years (to pay off the phone).  That’s $2040.  Me, I can purchase an iPhone 7 outright for say $549 (Plenty online for this price right now) pay $55/month for my plan and only pay a total of $1869!  So you think there is really a “DEAL” in T-Mobiles IPhone 7?  Yeah, your only paying $360 for the phone but T-Mobile is making up for it with the “plan”.. Why pick on T-Mobile?  I’m not! They are just the cheapest Postpaid carrier out there so OTHER CARRIERS will cost more!!!

5.) Not locked to a phone – Who likes paying for their phone over 2 years?  There is a reason why carriers lock you into 2 year contracts or device payment plans for 2 years.  It’s to KEEP YOU but I like changing phones, sometimes every year.  I can do that with Prepaid and Cricket

6.) Easy Payments – Back during the early days of prepaid you had to buy air time cards and whatnot.  Not anymore, I am billed monthly just like a postpaid carrier.  If you need access to airtime cards, they are still available and you can still pay in person at Cricket Stores but payments are just as simple as postpaid.  It’s billed monthly, to my credit card, on Auto-Pay

7.) Advanced Features – You really don’t lose any features on prepaid.  I have international features, I have unlimited everything, I have visual voicemail, and more!

Overall:  I am very impressed with Cricket Wireless.  Below is a speedtest that I would like to share, and this is normal with Cricket.
