As the technology advances, more people are inclined to share their thoughts and experiences while they travel. We want to share to our friends and families our hapiness while we travel through social media, especially facebook. Your travel is not complete without sharing it to facebook. But what if the place you love to travel restricts facebook and other social media?

Going to China is really exciting, as the place are full of beautiful sceneries. The culture is quiet different. However, when you are in China, you couldn’t share your happiness to facebook and other social media. China restricts facebook, twitter, instagram, and other social media. I couldn’t undertand the reason behind the restriction. However, social media are not totally banned. It is only restricted for whatever reasons only China knows. Besides, you want also to read some news from your family and friends. If you are out of facebook for sometime, as if you are already disconnected from the real world.

Tip on how to access facebook when you are in China.

First, If you are still outside China, and knows beforehand that you have a travel to China, all you need to do is to download VPN (Virtual Private Network) software. This software will make your location virtually different from your actual location. There are many websites that offers free download of VPN software for android or IOS. My favorite site is ZOOGTV VPN. Be careful when you download a free sites because this might be harmful to your computer. My experience was when I post something in facebook, there are spam in the comments of my post. Worst, the comments are pornography. That was, actually a free VPN for android. So, please be careful.

Second, If you are already in China, you could hardly get a free VPN sites, all you need to do is to download a paid VPN. My experience was I ask a friend of mind, because we are in a group tour, to share his VPN software via SHAREit app in android, so, I got it free. However, at that time I need to access my facebook with my laptop computer and I don’t have a VPN in my laptop. So, I decided to download from a paid site. I recommend Express VPN. I have a very nice experience with Express VPN but the sad thing is, it is paid.

Enjoy your access to facebook, twitter, instagram and other social media sites in China.

When my wife handed to me a unit of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, I was so happy. The phone is having a great look and feel to my hand. In fact, I like the curb of the screen. It really looks smart. I immediately asked Google the features of the phone. Whoah! This phone is great. The capture of the camera really attracted me very much. However, there are dark sides of this phone. I think, to other people, this dark side may not be so significant. But for me, it is really significant because I often use this features when I had my Samsung Galaxy S5.

Firtly, it does not function the remote to my DSLR. When I had my Samsung Galaxy S5 I often use the remote app for my DSLR, especially, long exposure shot to avoid the camera to shake. Now, I go back using my traditional remote to my DSLR because this Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge plus does not know how to use the app. It will just say that the app is not compatible to my device.

Secondly, it does not function the universal remote control. My Samsung Galaxy S5 gives me a lot of convenience turning off and on my home devices, such as; aircon, tv, dvd etc. It can even turn off and on the cable decoder box. When my kids misplaced the remote control, I will immediately look for my phone and use the remote control app. Now that I have Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, I felt I move backward. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus cannot do the remote control app.

Thirdly, it does not have a memory card slot. So, you cannot extend your memory and you will just depend on the phone built-in memory which might be exhausted after you shoot some pictures or record movie clips.

These are my initial observation of the disadvantages of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. There are still a lot of drawbacks that I have not seen. I will update this article once I observe from my phone. If you know of another drawbacks just leave a comment on the comment box. Thank you.
