We all know Samsung has gone crazy over its new smartphone line. Starting from Samsung Galaxy S, the South Korean company is rocking the Android-lovers’ world with a series of various high and low end Android smartphones, some of which have prompted Apple to file a lawsuit against them. The company’s recent buzz, Samsung Galaxy Note is an amazing thing. I saw it today at Bashundhara City in Dhaka. But it’d look weird if you hold it against your ear. It’s just too big for human ear (Probably it will be a better fit for Shrek?).
Anyway, let’s stop talking like Mashable and get to life. I posted some ramblings some weeks ago about how I was confused whether I should buy an Android phone or I should go with DSLR. I chose Android phone but yet I was confused which one to choose. My preferred list had Galaxy Y but turned out its hardware is just too weak to provide a minimum good Android performance. So, I decided not to go for any smartphone, not just yet.
I’ve been using a Chinese phone for a year and recently decided to move on to a branded device. It’s because of some incompatibility errors and occasional problems (like phone restart) I faced with my Chinese handset. A friend of mine was haunting me to sell off my set to him and I decided to do it. Today, I sold my previous phone and after much research into today’s mobile phone market, I’ve decided and bought a brand new Samsung Champ Duos handset.
I chose to purchase this because I didn’t want to go with a low-end Android phone. If I purchase an Android, I’ll go with something around $300 (local price). But I’m not yet ready to make that big purchase just for a phone. So, within this $100 budget, I found this phone to be worth every penny. The number one downside of this phone is that its touchscreen is resistive (as opposed to capacitive). I’m used to capacitive touchscreen so I’m having a bit trouble operating the touch sensitive device. However, thanks to the Stylus which I later discovered in the back of the phone which has made my life a lot easier.
Now, some of you might be thinking that stylus is an old idea. Reminds us of those PDA devices. However, stylus is coming back. At least, with Galaxy Note in the market, stylus shouldn’t feel shy! If anyone’s gonna tell me that stylus is an old idea, I’ll point his mind to the brand new Phablet (Phone + Tablet, as many technology blogs put it), Samsung Galaxy Note! :P
One thing I’m feeling that, even if your phone is not latest in the market, you feel really great when you purchase a brand new one. It’s feeling great and I love my new phone so far. Especially its headset/earphone with mic that came with the box is just superb! They are white and they have amazing sound quality. I wish they were available for purchase separately.
Interesting thing is, something else is in line! Within a week or two, I’m going to do something which will be my “first in life!” If you’re curious, please keep in touch with my blog through Twitter, Facebook Page or possibly just WordPress Follow feature.
Also let me know which handset you’re currently using and how you decided to buy that handset.
