    Is it legal to unlock geographical restrictions? Unlocator is asking for a paid subscription so I'll be paying for unblocking and for the channel. Unotelly seems to be free. Also what effect it will have on my phone? Will I be able to watch YouTube and other stuffs normally or with reduced speed?

    They offer this service all over the world. You are paying to use Netflix, Hulu and Unotelly. So I don't see the problem.

    Speed won't be affected because you are only changing the DNS and not going through a VPN.

    I pay $20 per month for Hulu+Netflix+Unotelly.

    I have a Chromecast and Apple TV so I stream stuff from my apps on my phone to the TV in FULL HD.

    Try it for a week. They all offer 7 day trials.

    Those are service costs. The rest will obviously be your Internet data.

    Slowing it down because of planned obsolescence I can understand, but giving an bullshit excuse like slowing down because of battery health is what pisses me off.

    It was performance affecting the user experience. So you run a demanding application, and the phone keeps shutting down. Like that.

    This is not something that remotely bothers me as an Apple user. I do not care to know about the details. I trust Apple to the best when it comes to user experience. Cannot speak for other Apple users though.

    All of this could very well be avoided if DIY replacement of battery was easy and there was a notification when battery degradation got too high :reading:

    Second part is an elegant solution actually, an alert to indicate when the clock speed has been reduced because of battery degradation. Don't agree with first part though, non removable battery has certain uses - like thief cannot turn off the phone by removing the battery. Actually saw an instance where a lost iPhone was recovered because the person who found it did not know how to turn off the phone without removing the cover. It has been tried out for smartphones as well, just did not really work, like Moto G5 was modular, primarily for the ability to swap batteries, but it was not very practical, and the LG G6 dropped the approach.

    Just few reasons not to buy one. Viewers discretion is advised.
