Honestly, I haven't been to a Samsung phone event so I wasn't really expecting anything new for an android phone. Being an admitted Apple fantard, I always had that hunch that it wasn't going to be good just because the plat for doesn't work for me or shall I say, it doesn't really impress me that much. I was in shock when Samsung had released new concepts on display technology and have seen quite remarkable advancements on their line since the first release of the Note. This even marks the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 + Samsung Gear. These pair of gadgets would astound you in so many levels since it impressed me too when we got to see it a few days ago in SM Aura Premier. Let's take a look!
One of ABSCBN's finest Atom Araullo hosted the show. An admitted techie, he says this day would be full of surprises as Samsung launches the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
Samsung's Executives and product managers Coco Domingo and Adriene Rivera went up on front and told us some key improvements on this handset and really rad new features.
There was this one time when they asked 5 people to come up on stage and use the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3. They paired them up and synced the units. They placed them together in a line as indicated by the number appearing on the screen. Then after that... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 poof!
It's your very own wide screen MOVIE on display! Everyone was shocked that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could actually do such a thing!
Then they asked Shaira Luna, the country's smartest girl to call on the phone so he could answer it on the Galaxy Gear. The phone rang but didn't get the display he wanted on the watch like thing. They tried the second time on her instead.
You don't have to go to your phone when you want to check a text message. A single swipe on this baby can get your calls answered and your messages read in a few seconds. Isn't that amazing? The video on this SUPER AMOLED display is so crisp and clear too! They also showed how the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 uses just three shapes for easy navigation. The square, the circle and the dot. That part was ingenious!
Then after a few minutes, models came out with the phones in their hand. How can I miss that part?
Pretty good looking hardware if you ask me wouldn't be complete without Samsung's own set of features powered by Android OS. This comes with limitless ways of customizing your phone's menu too. Pegged at 36,900, it won't come cheap of course but you can take advantage of their promo when it comes to stores soon. The Galaxy Gear by the way comes with a camera for you geeks out there who want to spy on someone just by looking at your wrist. It retails for 13,990 in a variety of colors.
Fore more protection, these Flip Covers are affordable at around Php 1,699.00. Try to visit their stores nationwide and see if they still have their devices up for sale.
Make sure you visit the Samsung Experience Shops at SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, SM City Cebu, SM Consolacion, SM Davao,and SM Lanang so you can get your hands in one of these. Some celebrities who already have one were present during the launch, you might fancy one or more of them I'm sure! =)
That's about it!
