After retiring my Samsung S3, I went on a handphone witch-hunt. Among the brands that I considered were Huawei, Motorola and Sony but eventually I choose my first love… NOKIA! Since the model that I’m interested in had not been released yet, so I waited and waited and waited. I used my mom’s phone for a couple of months. Hehe, I’m very patience hor?
This is absolutely yet another LATE POST. Just for my reference and/or to help those that are facing these issues.
My Samsung S3 (9th handphone) started having some issues around 1.5 to 2 years ago (perhaps circa mid year of 2016). Actually few months after I blogged about this handphone, it started lagging noticeably, but I hold on to it. I gotta make my money worth!
Ok, so the issues I had with my Samsung S3:
1. Battery draining very fast. I suspected this was due to an app that I downloaded. It was so bad that I had to reset the phone to factory setting few times. Battery life improved a bit but I still need to charge the phone almost twice daily. I even bought a new battery, but no help there.
Just when the news hit that Samsung Galaxy S4 has arrived our shore, I knew it’s time. But still not the right time as my old BlackBerry is still functional. Well, until that fateful day when I let loose of the phone and everything ended there.
So I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 in white! Oh you read correct and it’s not a typo mistake. 🙂 S4 is just not within my budget because I refuse to pay so much for a phone. Hahaha Of course owning the latest phone is a nice feeling. Galaxy S3 suit me perfectly fine in the wallet since I know it’s going to get a price drop after S4 came in. Hehehe
Right now I’m using BlackBerry Curve 8520.
This is my 8th handphone and the first smartphone I’ve ever used.
I’ve used 8 handphones in 1 decade (started using in year 2000).
How about you?
I was at home whole day on Wesak Day. Funny thing is my handphone is in my pocket the whole time. Reminded myself a couple of times to remove it but lupa. Then bathing time comes… I only realize N6060 babe is still in my pocket while undoing my pants. Carefully I place her on the rail amongst my clothes.
I refuse to ask someone to come and get my handphone knowing I will get a ‘Why you bring your handphone to the bathroom?’ lecture.
Swish swash swooch… goes my shower. Of course I still remember my handphone after the holy wash. ‘CAREFUL’ is in my head all the time. Unfortunately I lose to CAREFUL. The moment I remove my pants from the railing, I can hear ‘PLOOOP’ and a loud shriek “ARGGGGHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOoooo!” and one second later a large hurricane of panic voices outside my bathroom door. “What happen?”… “Why are you shouting?”
Continuation from yesterday’s post on Handphones Down Memory Lane. A reminiscence of my ALL 6 previous handphones.
Next, I decided to fork out some $$ to get another handphone so I bought a new handphone (7th handphone since… umphhh 2000) last weekend. No no nothing to cheer about. It is just a low end model with no camera, no bluetooth, no 3G, no USB… no whatsoever ‘changgih’ techno. I figured I wanted a simple handphone because all I ever use for is calling and receiving calls and messages plus I already have a digi cam ma. But for my next handphone I plan to own a 3.5G or 4G handphone with those state of the art technology. Which means it will take quite a while la since 3.5G and above are not available here yet.
