    Android why phones heating so much ?

    Like @blr_p mentioned, there is probably some background application that is not allowing your cpu to sleep, identify the application and uninstall it, or uninstall all your apps see if the issue goes away and install apps one by one while monitoring. No need to go for a custom ROM or hardware...

    Choosing VPN

    Some of the paid ones are definitely better in that respect, but even well known ones have problems maintaining speed during US peak hours. Before subscribing to a VPN service for a long period, might be better to have a trial run for a month or so to get to know its limits.

    Choosing VPN

    If you dont care about privacy and if the speed and bandwidth of free ones are enough for you, then i personally cant think of any compelling reason to shell out money for a paid service.

    Choosing VPN

    For media consumption there are some free vpn sites that might work too..check out Windscribe which provides daily 2GB or something.

    Choosing VPN

    Please stay away from lifetime paid VPN sites, you cannot run a decent VPN site with one time payments, remember that you are the product if something is free or too cheap. If you are using VPN for privacy then buying from these guys beats the whole purpose of using a VPN.

    Galaxy fold breaking?

    I think there were also reports of broken devices in which the film was not removed. Its generally not advisable to buy a first generation device, if you are looking for reliability.

    Thinking of replacing broadband with Jio hotspot

    Jio sells your data, period. Thats why they can afford to sell things for cheap. Other providers do too, but the difference is JIO actively blocks VPNs.. If you don't care about privacy, then it should be ok. Mobile internet may have higher latency than wired, so please check that if you are...

    Aliexpress.com - Feedback Thread

    I had the same experience, i never received 2 packages., so nowadays i order only with either china post registered airmail or aliexpress shipping, so at least we can track it. But i generally order very low value items around 5$ or so.

    Aliexpress.com - Feedback Thread

    Yeah, i have variety of items in my wish list, across various categories, all of them in the usual price range...People should use a price tracker to see what the usual price is before buying, is my point.

    I see no major difference in price, prices have been inflated and then reduced to almost same normal price.That's my observation.
