SORRY POTTER

I was watching some videos on Youtube and I stumbled upon some cool ads by Samsung Taiwan for the Samsung Galaxy S4. We’ve seen many commercials where rival companies would be made fun of or where the features of the gadget would be displayed as flashy as possible. You know how it is with rival commercials. Pepsi makes fun of Coca-Cola, iPhone and Samsung makes fun of each other. It’s really entertaining sometimes, especially when most of the jokes are quite true.

I guess Samsung Taiwan decided to go in a different direction with their ads. The first commercial I watched was entitled ‘Sorry Potter’.

Not really a new one, but I just found out about it. No idea why it’s called that but the humour is there and we get to see some of the features found on the Android such as the Air Gesture feature and the Smart Scroll Eye Tracking.

You can check out the commercial by clicking on the video below:

The second commercial I watched was entitled ‘Life of Tien’. You definitely know that it’s a parody of ‘Life of Pi’ and I have to say that this was definitely one commercial where I literally LOLed (Laugh Out Loud).

What do you think of Samsung Taiwan’s commercials? Commercial of the year perhaps?

Anyway, feel free to check out the Galaxy Life App on Playstore (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.samsung.galaxylife)

The objective of having GALAXY Life is to build customer loyalty for Samsung products through personalization, curation and rewards. Samsung have a wealth of rewards within this app. So do explore, and encourage your readers and friends and family to explore the app as well! :)

WHY SAMSUNG?

So I’ve been using the S4 for a good 1 year plus, and many people has been labelling me as the Samsung guy and ask me why did I choose the S4 and not other smartphones?  The answer is simple, because I like the idea of my battery is able to be taken out. What if over 3 years and I’m sure batteries are bound to get spoiled. I could just buy a battery from a legitimate Samsung outlet and change it myself. No need to send it to the shop and wait for a week to get a simple job done. Totally hassle free!

The very next thing that I like about my S4 is that I can customize my phone to my own desire. It leaves me with more options and human beings like to have many options to choose from, yea? One of my personal favourite is being able to tweak the interface according to my liking by using this app called “Nova Launcher”. It’s only available in Play Store.

Sometimes I get very lazy when I’m watching TV. And I don’t know why, I can never seem to find that damn remote control. I would be searching high and low, in and out of the couch just to find it. And sometimes I get very careless and accidentally drop the remote on the floor (I’m sure we’ve all done that) and it got spoil. Thankfully, I will be extra careful with my own handphone (more than a remote control obviously) and what’s even better is that it has a built-in infrared blaster than can be used as a universal remote control to my TV! And every other TV, of course. If you’re wondering where is that blaster, it’s at the top of the phone, the little black dot right there. That’s not all!

The phone also has a special app (Samsung WatchON) that pulls in data from your cable or satellite provider and can suggest shows you may like to watch. I love this feature because I like to explore different types of shows on the TV.

The very next thing I like about my S4 is It uses a standard micro USB plug to charge.

Whenever I’m over at my friend’s office. Even though he’s an iPhone user but he’s bound to have a micro USB plug for his powerbank. These plugs are much easier to find than Apple’s special Lightning port on the iPhone 5S. Thumbs up for functionality/normality.

Long before I had a smartphone, I was using a Sony Erricson W660.

I rely a lot on my external storage in my SE because I keep a lot of music in it. So having a phone that I can’t upgrade my storage is really a bummer. Thankfully Samsung S4 understands users like me and maintains that tradition of having external storage :D Now I have 16GB in the internal storage and another 16GB in my external. In total of 32GB for all my photos, music, files, apps and what not. Awesomeeee!

Because of all the extra storages, I need not care about the number of photos I take. So instead of using whatsapp to send pictures, me and my Samsung friends uses NFC (S Beam) to send all that 30mb size of photos in an instant.

Basically It has a near field communication aka NFC chip that lets your phone talk to other devices with NFC. This means you can use your phone to make mobile payments, swap content like photos between phones just by tapping them together, or pair your phone with a stereo with a tap. In short, if you don’t have internet data, you can still share files via NFC. Yay!

Lastly, app developers are slowly realizing that android is the way to go, not just iOS. One of the famous photography app. VSCO Cam has finally came to android recently.

And another one of my fav is Clash of Clans too! I’m so hooked to it.  All these apps were only exclusive for the iOS app store but not anymore. I’m sure we’re pleased to know that developers are seeing a brighter future in the Android market now.

All these pointers basically summed up why I liked using Android. Are you on Android? If not, then when? Why not try out a Samsung smartphone ;)

MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD

Malaysia is mostly known for its street food (meals cooked on the street to either eat on the spot or takeaway). The flavours reflect the country’s multicultural heritage with a feast of Chinese, Indian, Malay and many other types of cuisine. While I am given the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom for a month to try out, I took the opportunity to capture some of the street food that I’ve eaten throughout places like Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Penang, and so on. This post isn’t much about words but rather letting pictures taken by #mys4zoom speak by itself.

Enjoy the delicious pictures, and sorry if you’re reading this at midnight :p

There are plenty more pictures, but I think I’ll take up a lot of your internet bandwidth. I’ve personally submitted them all to the #mys4zoom campaign page on Facebook to be part of Joe Flizzow’s new music video, Havoc. You should check it out too and submit your pictures to the page, for more info:

URBANSCAPES 2013

So who spent their time in MAEPS Serdang last weekend for Urbanscapes 2013? The event has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and it’s full of surprises this time around. Everyone was gutted that Two Door Cinema Club had to cancel because of the lead singer’s chronic laryngitis (disappointing). Heck, I was actually stoked of going Urbanscapes because of them actually (confession). Hope they’ll come to Malaysia in future (hopeful).

On the bright side though, it was a fun filled day as I was there mainly to accompany Jean as she’s a big fan of all these indie stuff as well. But well at the end of the day, I also got home with a little gift from Urbanscapes, really really bad rashes on my hands and feet. They said it was the caterpillars or some nest going on that flew all over the venue. Hope it’ll recover and be back to normal soon.

Since I was given the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom to try out, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking on how the day went by for us #mys4zoom

Enjoy!

.

Overall, it was a good experience-lah. As quoted by Time Out KL, “Warm sandwiches, fairy lights, pumping music and hilly terrains – all in the making of KL’s greatest all-encompassing arts festival. Here’s to many more.” Also thanks to #mys4zoom, I was able to capture moments from the event itself. Check THIS LINK out to see what they have in store for #MYS4ZOOM

See ya next time!
