Gadget 101: Cellphones
CELLPHONES. Essential to our daily lives. Anyone of you knows who doesn’t have one? Except for our grandmas and grampas who refuse to be eaten by technology XD May it be an Android or from an out-dated version as long you can call and text, anyone nowadays have their cellphones with them for communication. It is important and a necessity. I myself consider it very important as well 🙂
I just wanna share you guys that I recently have a new phone and wanted to share how satisfied I am with this (so far :D) At first, I’m not really a big fan of SAMSUNG. I actually first avoided it. I find it too mainstream that all the people are using SAMSUNG. I know I’m weird but that’s what I feel about it XD (you know what I’m saying?) My dream phone is IPHONE. But IPHONE is not user-friendly, budget-friendly and entertainment-friendly. But it’s a really good phone and still hoping to have one 🙂 But anyways, I ended up taking SAMSUNG. I took their newest Samsung S7 simply because I fell inlove with the specs and features. (Damn that 32GB!!!)
Our company offered a Smart Perks (Plan) and we ain’t got cash out for all employees (oh yeah!) so I took the opportunity and apply for it. Eventually after two weeks, I finally got it on my hands XDDD
I chose Samsung S7 flat over Edge because I find the curvy-sides of Edge annoying XD Well, for me. If you guys have seen Edge, you know what I’m saying but anyways it was a cool phone too, except on those curves… XD and with more additional features than flat. Way too cooler with those features though XD Let’s sneak in a little review from my experience 😀
Appearance: S7 flat is not as big as Edge but the screen is enough for me and I wouldn’t hate it just because it’s smaller. Touchscreen moves smoothly, I love it! It’s sleek, light-weight and very handy. This is my concern with Edge, for me, I find it uncomfortable. It feels like your holding the screen that might activate the apps anytime XD You know what I’m saying? (yes, it’s me, not you XDD) Well anyways, Size is so okay. It’s almost the same as my Asus Zen 5 and I’m very fine with it. Well, if you prefer with bigger screen, Edge might be the right one for you 🙂
I chose Black by the way over Gold because I find gold very eye-catching XD I’m just taking precautions when it comes to public 😀 HAHAHAHA!
Accessories: So S7 doesn’t have external battery. You can’t even open the back case unless you want to crash it by forcing to open XD So how do you put your sim and memory card inside? S7 made it external, the slot for those two can be pulled out so you can put it inside. And for you to do that, you’ll need a Key (yes! a magical key like Card Captor Sakura XD Charot!)
At first I thought it was a souvenir you can chain and hang it on somewhere XD But of course as you read the instructions, it’s the key for you to open the Sim and MemCard slot 😀 Here’s how it goes.
So this is important, YOU CAN NEVER LOSE THE KEY or else you’ll never be able to open that slot XD HAHAHAHA! Well, there are ways but really, to keep your phone safe as well, don’t lose the key :D.
Alongside with the key you get another accessory which is my favorite (Thank you Samsung!) Been wanting to have this one for a long time but anyways I have now already 😀
This is very important of course for those people who like to hoard stuffs from their phones, we can share it via USB or your external drive! Isn’t it amazing? 😀
Of course we also have the Samsung Earphones which the bud appearance are different from the usual. Well what can I say with their earphones, I’ve been a fan with them ever since (I was able to use one when my mom had corby and i took the earphones XD). Well, second to Sony 😀 This one’s good too. Very comfortable to the ears 🙂
And last but not the least, the charger. Well, it’s a normal USB cord and adapter charger and it’s fast charging! 😀 Well, I was expecting they would provide the wireless charging device like they had advertise but nahh, you have to buy it separately XD Maybe some time though 😀 Heehee~ They also have their VR Box which is expensive as well 🙁
SPECS: 32GB internal would definitely satisfy your file hoarding feels XD HAHAHA! That’s why it’s preferable to have S7 over 6S LOL. Up to date OS Version (Marshmallow 6.0) it’s so fast I cannot follow XD LOL! Really, it’s fast! So far, it doesn’t lag yet (since it’s just been 2 weeks with me). Playing mobile games is a feeling I’ve never experience before. HAHAHA! I don’t lag and crash down anymore XD very smooth and fast. CAMERA IS SO AWESOME. Awesome HD shots! (I’ll post one sample below XD) and what else? Yeah, still exploring it but so far, I’m very satisfied with it 😀
So my S7 is for entertainment purposes only. I do not use it for calls and texts. I’m very much particular with the roles of my gadget (if you know what I’m saying…). I’m that person who is not convenient with ONE for all purpose. Sorry, it’s just me XD So S7 is for surfing and entertainment purposes. This doesn’t include music, calls and text XD (Yep, that’s me XD) I have two other phones for that XD
Like I said before, S7 is for entertainment. It also doesn’t go out in the public unless I’m in a safe place XD HAHAHA! Before I used to have one phone for all (music, calls and texts) and I get frustrated as it easily died at the end of the day. My Asus Zen 5 cannot stay alive until the end of the day unless you won’t use data and music. It’s heart breaking to go home with your phone died 🙁 So I decided to separate their roles XDDD
Lumia 610 was my sister’s phone before and when she bought a new one, it has been passed down to my brother, then my dad and finally to me. I use this for call and text purposes. I like it very much as it has a smooth interface for texting. I find lumia phones cool but it’s just can be at par with the android phones. But for calls and texts, I’m very okay with this 😀
For music and sound tripping purpose, I have my Nokia Asha 502 for that. Guaranteed life long battery. I charge this once or twice a week only. Well maybe because I only use this for music XDD Actually this was to replace my Sony Walkman that I lost last last year 🙁 And I was planning to buy a new S. Walkman again but damn too expensive. A friend advice me to just get Nokia Asha 502 because it’s convenient for music and file storage as well plus it was cheaper already that time and so I did 🙂 Before I also use this for texting and calls but I find texting here hard because it’s too small and touch screen is not as smooth as the two and whenever I get text, the music stops for the ringtone and I hate it when my soundtripping is interrupted XD so yeah, this is just for my music life 😀
Well, I’m not a cellphone addict. I just want things to be convenient through this way. HAHAHAHA! So what’s yours? Are you much of a gadget freak more than me? Share your thoughts below. Thanks for reading! 😀
