If you have plans of buying the Samsung Galaxy S4, you should know its strength and its weakness. To help you decide, here the pros and cons of Samsung Galaxy S4.

Pros of Samsung Galaxy S4

You can remove the battery of the Galaxy S4. This is a very good feature because you can do a manual reset of the phone by removing the battery when the phone freezes. There are also those who want to use a third party battery and when they want to add accessories to their phone. This is not true to other smartphones. Another advantage of Galaxy S5 is it is very easy to repair in case you need to do so. There are smartphones that require you to go to affiliated repair centers only which is hassle to those who are attached to their phone. In case you run out of phone memory, you don’t have to worry. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a microSD slot and allows you to expand your memory up to 64GB. Other smartphones don’t have slots at all and this can be a problem when the phone memory runs out.

Other cool features of Samsung Galaxy S4 include built –in TV remote, eye tracking feature, split screen mode and AirView. With these features, it’s no surprise that Samsung also got a solid market for their Galaxy S4.

Cons of the Samsung Galaxy S4

There are those that say that the Galaxy S4 is not IP57 rated because of its size. However there are also those that don’t see this as a disadvantage. In fact, they say that the rate is not important because Samsung only releases smaller and bulkier. Another reason why the Galaxy s4 is not popular is because of their small internal storage. Although technically they are right, the small internal memory can be compensated by the external SD card. In terms of price, you can actually compare it other smartphones. To date, it is considered by many as one of the most expensive phones in the market. The design is another con of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

3 Rules To Follow To Have A Happy “Friends With Benefits” Relationship

by Kenny Howard

Make sure you both know the rules of a friends with benefits relationship

Make sure you both know the rules of a friends with benefits relationship

It’s easy to define who your friend with benefits is. He or she is your sex buddy. Some people say that it’s a concept that will never work. But why has it worked for many? Can it work for you too? Yes, it can. You can always enjoy sex with him or her without investing your feelings and end up getting hurt. Having this kind of relationship is easy and you can even make it perfect. Just make sure you stick to these 3 cardinal rules.

1. Make sure that the two of you know what you’re getting into

Before you even sleep with him or her, talk about what the relationship is all about. Be frank. Tell the person that you’re not into dating. You just want someone you can sleep with whenever you want. If you find yourself thinking about getting into something serious, end the relationship right away. This way, you can stay away from a heartbreak. Knowing what the relationship is about before you even start enjoying it is one way to stay away from pain. Even if movies will show you that your friend with benefits can become “The One”, it’s best that you stick to the sex part.

2. Don’t care about him or her too much.

Don't stay home just because he didn't call... Take a ¨girls Night Out¨

Don’t stay home just because he didn’t call… Take a ¨girls Night Out¨

There’s no way a FWB relationship will work out if you care too much. Don’t ruin your schedule or forget about your chores just to meet the person. Go on with your life as if nothing’s change. There’s no need to go through any inconvenience just to meet him or her. When you’re going through so much trouble just to meet the person, there’s a chance that your feelings are about to develop. That’s already a red flag. Also, try to see the other person regularly. But make sure that it’s not too often like what other people in serious relationships do. Remember that there’s no need to be in touch with him or her all the time. You can go for a couple of a months without any communication. What’s nice about not seeing each other way too often is that you’ll have a lot to talk about when you meet again.

3. Accept the fact that the relationship has an end.

You should be okay with the idea that your relationship has an end. Even if you’re happy with the way things are, time will come when you’ll meet someone worth keeping forever. When that moment comes, you’ll have to stop meeting your FWB. You’ll have to bid good-bye to the person who gave you hot and steamy sex for months or years and focus your time and attention on “The One”.

The relationship will come to an end.. Be prepared

The relationship will come to an end.. Be prepared

This kind of set-up has worked for many people, and it can work for you too. You just have to know what you’re getting into. Also, keep in mind that an FWB relationship isn’t meant for everyone. At the end of the day, you should still guard your heart. If you think that you’re too vulnerable and you may just fall for him or her, it’s best to stay away while you still can and while you haven’t cried buckets of tears yet.

3 Food Items That Can Be Used As The Ultimate Carbohydrate Substitute

by Kenny Howard

Reduce the carbohydrates on your diet

Reduce the carbohydrates in your diet

Low carbohydrate diet is an extremely popular form of dieting when it comes to losing weight quickly. This type of dieting has the potential to make you shed weight at the speed of 2-4lbs per week. But the main challenge in this dieting is to control the urge for biting into a carbohydrate dense food item. This uncontrollable urge is the body’s reflex action to combat hunger. Therefore while substituting carbohydrates you have to keep a scientific approach. Only those food items can actually be the ideal carbohydrate substitutions which have high fiber content and high protein content so that they produce a feeling of satisfaction upon consumption. Here are such special carbohydrate substitutions:

Replace turnips with potatoes to get `carbohydrate less’ energy

Red Turnips are low carb food

Turnips are rarely noticed by health bloggers but they are nothing less than superfood which can be used to substitute all the starchy potatoes from your diet. Potatoes contain lots of indirect carbohydrates in the form of starch which won’t be accomodable in a low carbohydrate diet. The turnips have a taste and chewy texture that can closely resemble the potatoes. These turnips can be eaten as salad or they can be baked in the oven like potatoes. You can even make a mash out of boiled turnips like you do with potatoes. These low carbohydrate turnips are rich in many nutrients like Vitamin K, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

Eat `lentils porridge’ as a good breakfast substitute

If you want to give up on carbohydrate rich food like cornflakes, porridge etc then you will find yourself in a tough situation to find the ideal breakfast replacement that can taste as good as the above mentioned breakfast options. A protein rich diet accompanied with few helpings of food can be summed up as an ideal low carbohydrate breakfast. So, you can try introducing lentils porridge in your diet as carbohydrate substitute. Various kinds of lentils can be chosen depending upon your taste. You can choose chickpeas, beluga, dry peas, yellow lentils, green pulses etc to prepare the porridge. You have to boil these lentils in water using a pressure cooker or microwave. Then seasonings like rock salt, pepper, sauces etc can be added in the lentils porridge to further enhance the taste. Lentils will be your protein rich substitution for carbohydrates.

Broccoli, lettuce and cabbage are also ultimate substitutes

Carbohydrates fill you and provide you complete satisfaction from hunger. That is why people usually get addicted to carbohydrates. Even if they try to eliminate carbohydrates from diet, then they often feel hungry and unsatisfied. The trick is to substitute the carbohydrates by replacing them with `filling’ food items which are high in fiber as well as energy. The vegetables like broccoli, lettuce and cabbage are extremely nutritious because they are not only rich in dietary fiber, but they also contain lots of nutrients like folic acid, vitamin A, calcium and vitamin C. These vegetables can be cooked in innovative ways by baking them, boiling them or stir frying them. Also, you can make these vegetables even more relishing by sprinkling seasonings of your choice like parsley, paprika, dill etc.

Eliminating carbohydrates completely from daily food intake is not recommended. But to lose weight quickly during dieting, at least 70 percent of the carbohydrate intake by a person can be substituted easily by using the above mentioned healthy food items.

Five Questions You Should Never Ask In A Job Interview

by Kenny Howard

Be ready for your job interview

Be ready for your job interview

So you finally bagged yourself an interview. Hiring managers and HR professionals will normally close an interview by asking an applicant if they have any questions regarding the job. This is a great opportunity to find out more about the job and the company’s expectations of you. Before you get too comfortable, remember that the interviewer has not stopped judging you. Avoid asking these 5 questions that are sure to shoot your chances of getting the job:

    1. What does your company do? – Come to the interview prepared. This includes having a basic idea of what business the company is in. Asking these questions show that you never took the time to look up what the company is all about. This is a total turn off from an employer’s perspective. After all, the person they want to hire is the best potential employee not the best candidate for the job.

Don´t make the wrong questions

Don´t ask the wrong questions

    2. What’s the salary for this position? – Asking these questions at the start of the interview can turn off many hiring managers who see this kind of attitude as too impatient to get ahead. The first interview is about selling yourself to the company. Questions about salary and benefits should come at a later time.


    3. When can I expect a raise – Asking a raise early on without even having had the opportunity to prove yourself first can raise a lot of eyebrows. You’re coming off too fresh and demanding. Many companies are willing to give a raise but only when you have proven your worth with exceptional performance.
    4. Ask questions that show you weren’t listening.- Although some bad questions can be relative to the interview, asking questions that your interviewer made clear early on can be irritating. It shows that you don’t pay attention and reflect badly on your capacity as a potential employee.

    5. Can I change my work schedule- Asking early on if you can change your work schedule reflects that you aren’t eager to put in extra hours for the company when required. This also implies that you aren’t that interested in the job and is more into getting out of the office as soon as possible.

Make a good impression and you will get the job

Make a good impression and you will get the job

With the economy being erratic and all, employers are getting choosy when it comes to potential employees who will prove to become an asset to the company. Instead of being a statistic in a company’s turnover rate, show future employers your potential as a perfect employee by asking the right questions and saving those icky ones for a later date. Preventing what can possibly go wrong is the best way to ensure that things can go right.
