Technobyte: Would you go under the knife in order to take the perfect selfie?

Aki Anastasiou reviews the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and talks about the latest craze of cosmetic surgery for good selfies.

Would you go under the knife simply to take a great selfie?

Well, it seems more and more people are doing just that!

In 2017, 55 percent of facial plastic surgeons said their patients were having surgery in order to up their selfie game.

First identified by AAFPRS members more than three years ago in the annual survey, the trend continues to grow, meaning a boost for the plastic surgery industry.

What's more, people aren't shy to share their surgery secrets on social media.

From lip injections to chin implants to earlobe reduction, it seems there's no shame in sharing your road to self-confidence.

For better or worse, “selfie-awareness” is more than a fad...

Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru

Also on Techobyte, tech guru Aki Anastasiou shared his thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, saying it's possibly the best all-around device in the world at the moment.

He says it has a really powerful processor and an impressive 4000 mAh battery which will comfortably last you an entire day.

But it doesn’t come cheap, it'll set you back a cool R19 000.

Samsung still makes fantastic quality devices, it is a classy device!
