Our take on the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G:
The Samsung Galaxy A32 5G has so many features it’s more of a question of what it DOESN’T have. This phone has a camera with not only great quality but also every feature the mid-level smartphone world currently has to offer, capability of shooting 4K videos in the rear camera, a large display, plenty of storage no matter which variant you get, a huge battery, NFC, support for future updates, and so much more. In addition to this, it’s a 5G phone with a mid-level price tag, and as of writing this is Samsung’s most affordable 5G phone. The only downsides to this phone are minor and in context to the level it’s at, not very noteworthy. The processor could be better, seeing as 5G phones typically are significantly faster than their 4G counterparts and this phone isn’t much faster than your typical mid-level 4G phone, but it’s still a great processor nonetheless. This phone also would have done nicely with a 1080p display instead of only 720p, but again for its price range this can be easily overlooked. Overall, if you’re in the market for an affordable 5G phone with a great camera, plenty of storage, all kinds of useful features, the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G is a great option.

Our take on the Samsung Galaxy A02S:
The Samsung Galaxy A02s is very bare as far as features go. This phone has no special camera features like an ultrawide camera, no fingerprint scanner or face unlock, and in general the processing power is definitely on the lower side. That being said, for being an entry-level budget smartphone, it is very well-rounded and although it’s not great at anything specific, it’s definitely good at many things. The processing power may not be the greatest, but it’s by far not the worst either. Although the camera doesn’t have many extra features, the main camera does take very good pictures. In addition to this, this phone has a huge battery with fast charging and plenty of storage space. All in all, although this phone has several areas that leave a bit to be desired, it also has some great features like its battery and storage that make it still a great choice for an entry-level phone designed for basic daily use.
ExpressVPN is one of a variety of options in the competitive VPN market. Is it worth considering?
Since protecting your information and personal privacy is one of the main benefits of using a VPN, the logging policy is extremely important. Typically, the best VPNs are the ones with the most transparent logging policy. Thankfully, ExpressVPN not only has a great logging policy, but is one of the most transparent companies in the VPN world. ExpressVPN will never log your IP address, browsing history, traffic destination/metadata, or DNS queries. Their apps and servers are engineered specifically to eliminate sensitive information, so you can rest assured that your privacy will be protected while using ExpressVPN. Now this being said, ExpressVPN does collect a few bits of nonsensitive information about your usage – however, their log policy lists exactly what they collect and why. This transparency is just another reason to trust ExpressVPN to keep your information safe.

Speed of VPN
ExpressVPN is optimized for speed, with one of the fastest VPNs in the industry today. No two servers of any VPN will be the same, as some will be faster or slower than others depending on the location, traffic, etc. ExpressVPN not only makes it easy to find the fastest server in the network at any given time, but also is constantly optimizing the servers for speed, ensuring that you will get the protection provided by a good VPN without having to sacrifice your internet connection speed in order to do so.
Our take on ExpressVPN
ExpressVPN is a very powerful tool for protecting your information and data online while also maintaining a fast, stable internet connection. Their logging policy may not be the most anonymous out there – there is a decent amount of information they do collect while you’re using their servers – but unlike many other VPNs, ExpressVPN not only discloses exactly what they collect from you, but also why they need this information. This transparency combined with the efficiency and speed of the VPN itself makes ExpressVPN one of the most trustworthy, reliable VPNs in the industry.

Our take on the Umidigi A11:
While the budget phone space has plenty of options, the Umidigi A11 stands out with its impressive choice of build materials. In addition, we like that the phone offers unique features such as a dedicated smart key and thermometer. Also, Umidigi provides a generous amount of storage regardless of the configuration, which gives budget carrier smartphones decent competition.
