One of the things visible always inside my bag is a cellphone. It’s essential in the sense that you need to connect at home or to other people. I am an sms (text msg) person rather than a call person. So, if I call you that only means I need to say something urgent (emergencies) or you are someone special that it’s “just to hear your voice call” (sounds cheesy? Ignore this! Haha). When I think of my technology decline it was quite depressing. From Samsung galaxy Y(smartphone), it was demoted to cherry mobile (with antenna phone). With the help of heaven’s grace, I was able to cope up with bankruptcy so now I am going to introduce to you my very own….. *drumrolls*
SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016)
I want to tell you that this is going to be my first gadget/tech blog ever. I am not an expert with this so please bear with me. I am just going to share my experience with this phone how it made my life efficient when it comes to my work related task and most especially to my blogging career updates.
I went to a SAMSUNG shop in a near mall in our place. I explored every phone there. I stayed like 15 minutes. I am conscious with my budget which is only 5-6 k (100 US dollar). I bought it cash because I don’t have credit card. (Temptations go with credit cards too.) I want something with good camera (produces sharp images as an alternative to my Canon Powershot), a bit slim, don’t use much of battery, manageable touch screen and the appearance must be pretty like me (hahaha! Just kidding). I need to change phone so this is my reward to myself for being a hardworking and patient employee. It’s really rewarding. 😀
Upon buying the phone, I got a free sim card (globe network) and mono headset for driving (I am taking driving lesson btw so eventually I will use it). It was really cool when I got to buy it and its right there in my hand. ^o^ I chose GOLD because it’s more daring than WHITE which is very common everywhere. I find it hard searching for a phone case. They would always say that since it’s a new model they don’t have a phone case for it. Then, eventually I found one in a nearer mall in our place. Sorry, I don’t give up easily HAHAHA! I love the phone case. It’s really meant for me because it’s the only last item there that fits Samsung J16. I also like the design. It becomes a ROSE GOLD style. It’s so me! Haha… Rd told me that it’s like a female version of his Spigen Samsung s7. He’s a tech blogger/gamer by the way so I needed his opinion about it.
Let’s talk about getting it personalize. I have a Rilakkuma home screen wall paper and Nao Tomori lock screen wall paper. I just like that I can manipulate everything on the theme and design with my own preferences easily. That’s what I love about SAMSUNG phones. As you can see, I also organize my apps into social media, gaming apps and learn/pratical apps. I only have 2 kawaii games because I don’t have spare time to play. For social media apps, I mostly have all it. I need it for my blog publicity and quick updates. I use Twitter, Viber, Gmail and BASIC YOGA the most everyday. I love the emoticons choices also even in simple SMS. It cute and cool!
Overall, my experience with SAMSUNG j16 is awesome. It suits my needs and personality. My tip for those who wants to buy a new phone are:
~ you must identify your needs first
~ be conscious with your budget
~ do some research / read some tech reviews over the net prior to buying
~ Be yourself. Find a phone that fits your lifestyle and suits your personality.
~ Don’t follow the trend/latest too much. You’ll get bored easily.
I think this is all for now. I hope you learned something and enjoyed reading. Any comments and suggestions are very welcome.:)
