I’ve had the Samsung Galaxy S III for a while now, perhaps over two months. It looks like a long time since the Samsung Note II has already been launched.
The first task after getting the phone was naming it: and after asking my followers on twitter an very suitable name was suggested: Eve. Why? Because she took a big bite out of Apple. Eve is white and I think she’s a beauty, no?
I will not give a detailed review: you can find that here or here. However, if you asked me what is the best phone to buy in Kenya right now? Definitely the Samsung S3/III. With the latest version of Android (comes with Ice Cream Sandwich but you can update to Jellybean), a whopping 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen and other awesome features to make your life easier. As I said earlier, I’m not giving a review, but rather my experience.
If you are a lover of (spectating) sports like me, you’ll love the camera. With 8MP and a big screen to match, taking pictures is without strain. Eve has 16GB of internal memory so I never have to worry about running out of memory when storing the numerous photos I take.
This particular match did not end well for us AFC Leopards fans, but we acknowledged the Gor Mahia win as they ran into the field to celebrate.
I was at this year’s Concours d’Elegance held at the Ngong Racecourse and I loved the motorbikes on display. Check out one below:
Updating Scores during games and catching up with comments and discussions about live games is seamless, only limited by the speed of the network you are using. Safaricom does have the widest 3G coverage so wherever you are watching your game from you should be able to update real time.
The phone has 4-processors-in-one, so if you are transitioning between the camera, uploading pictures, checking out facebook and twitter updates, there is no hanging. Multi-tasking on a mobile device has never been more elegant.
Other Features I love
The Flipboard App is one of my favorites. It features news and stories from whichever newspapers you choose to subscribe to, and whatever category of news e.g. sports, technology, travel. With the phone’s large, brilliant display you’ll enjoy reading anything on it.
This enables you to share files such as videos, pictures and songs just by touching another device with S-Boom on it. It’s an alternative to using Bluetooth or emails or other methods of sharing information.
While some people don’t like the rounded edges of the phone, I like that design plus the fact that it is quite slim makes it an easy fit into any of my pockets.
It’s much more pleasant to read my emails on the phone rather than on my laptop, because the display is just beautiful and smoother.
And many other features and apps. This phone is designed see, listen, respond, and enable you to share the greatest moments. You can find it at Safaricom Shops, Nakumatt and Tuskys, Samsung brand shops, or even online at duka1.com, and other reliable dealers for Kshs 55,000-60,000.
