Item: 5 screen covers for Alpha in separate bags. Used one recently as I gave this phone to my mom. I was putting this for the first time in my life and actually I did quite well – missed one side only by few inches and got only few bubbles. So good.

Only one minus for being all month late. +1 size is good, all holes in places, +1 simple to use, +1 usable for its purpose, an good even after 2 years of collecting dust in the drawer. +1 protects quite well as well.

Item: Plastic small piece, that has a handle to mount into the went. One side is retractable to fit any size phone. Actually really good, we use it even after 2 years, it just stays in the car all he time, because its easy to mount and take off.  Though it has a problem that its not always really stable and doesn’t fit as tough as before – probably of age and usage. Never the less its a great product.

I don’t use it as its quite big and bulky, so it just sits in my closet. But as we are planing on moving to a bigger space where I’ll have a laundry room, this might be handy. I’ll see.

+1 for arriving on time, +1 for actually doing what its meant for, +1 its quite firm. -1 for being bulky and big, -1 for being not as useful as expected.

Item: It is round plastic charger with an image of Captain’s America shield. The design is neat and looks really cute. It has a rubber circle so that the phone wouldn’t slide off easily. Even though no wire was included it’s a simple mini usb (like for most o android phones before usb c) so you just plug in regular android phone charger (not usb-c) and put your phone on. Phone has to have the wireless charging option though – my iPhone doesn’t have that. For edge it works really well. One thing I didn’t really like was the lights – when its charging it turns blue and when it’s not red, and as it is always placed on the night table it lights up the room during the night and I just can’t sleep with that. So my husband took out the blue light – as he always charges the phone during the night, so I can sleep peacefully.

Reality gets only one for the lights, but other than that this item was a good deal – it works, the design is cool, phone doesn’t slide off easily, and it came in just in time.

Item: two violet (not my favorite color) glass nail files with cases. The texture is not really good, these tend to brush off quite fast also they are too ruff on the nails, so it its a miss. I couldn’t use them as gifts – so I bought better ones locally. Also why put that barcode on the case? looks horrible and also not fit for a gift. I use one in one of my purses, just because I have it extra and it does the job in extreme situations, but I still dislike the texture.

Its next to the one I ought locally in the shop, you might see that the orange one is much smoother and you just have to trust me that is also better.

Verdict_w

Ebay vs. Reality CC_offC_offC_offC_off

Ebay gets one cookie for the fact that I still can use it for the purpose even though I prefer not to. Reality strikes with ugly color, misplaced barcode (that you cant take off easily, I tried – you end up with sticky place), texture and the fact I couldn’t use it as intended and bought for.

Wireless Magnetic Phone Charger for Car

Search_wMy husband’s Samsung Edge had a really messed up charge jack because we usually use his phone as a navigation in a car and he gets phone calls a lot so he just connected and disconnected his phone all the time. So I figured maybe the wireless charger might be an option and my husband asked to order this one.

Item: original box consisted  of charging pad with mount for a car went, charging wire, metal plates for phone.

20161108_18510020161108_185248

The main idea is that you put the charger on the went, plug it in and then mount  the phone on it. For the phone to stick you have to stick metal plates on it first. That didn’t really work – because of any bump on the road the phone would actually slide off, so this wasn’t really useful, we used it at home for some time though. But I gave a real wireless charger for my husband as a gift on Christmas and he uses that instead so this one just collects dust in a drawer now.

Verdict_w

Ebay vs. Reality CC_offC_offC_offC_off

Ebay would get one just for the fact that the charger actually works. One of the biggest no no was that you have to stick something to your phone to make it work.
