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
I bade goodbye to my BlackBerry Curve 8520 this early August after 3 years. It was my 8th handphone and secretly I’m glad to let it go.
At first one of the side button starts to peel off, then one by one other buttons follow suit. I’m guessing it’s either my toxic sweat or the ‘rubbery’ material are worn. Since I seldom use those buttons, I was fine with it. Then the side panels made of the same material came off. And I’m still fine with it. I dropped the phone many times (Not purposely la. I’m a klutzy person) and yet the BB still function well.
Buttons missing and now all you can see is the button sensors.
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?
