Newer reviews can be expected to be ongoing projects, with minor additions or corrections.

Note: When I rate stuff, a 10/10 does not indicate perfect in an absolute academic sense, but as in (at least) as good as could be expected at the time, minor flaws allowed. For portable devices typically limited by the size and weight. Value for money also counts. An electronic device that got a high score in 2005, most likely would seem like pure trash ten years later….


  • Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro vs Huawei Band 7(/6)

    Xiaomi Smart Band Pro 7 has a larger display in roughly same size case and is MUCH more expensive than Huawei Band 7. Adds a few extra features, and has bad band attachment.

    (updated on the inferior software and DST a week later – and again a week later after a factory reset…)

  • Pull apk from device

    Have you ever wanted to save an old version of an app you got on your phone that is no longer offered by the Android Market in a usable version?
    Either to save for later, before replacing with a newer dubious version (e.g. K9 destroyed their good app), or to use on another device.

  • Partition backup, unlocked Android phones, through Recovery.

    Have you ever wanted to backup entire partitions of your Android phone?
    Well it actually is quite easy for an unlocked device – Does NOT need to be rooted.
    ADD: This requires the presence of a recovery boot option! E.g. from LineageOS

Newer postings are in English (well sort of, bare with me, non-native…), some earlier than 2010 just blunt copies of the texts in Danish.

Collecting of old stuff started May 2015. Entries are generally attempted dated with original stamps, even if they are somewhat updated since, several reviews have been ongoing ‘projects’.
