Figured we should have a thread like this.
Hi all! I'm AntS.
I've worked for Samsung since 2014: starting on t'phone in the frontline Mobile/Tablets Tech Support team, moving on to the Online Shop Support team, then to the Social Media team, where I spent most of my time... and which is how I ended up here.
My hobbies include reading (I might be a bit of a bibliophile), writing, drawing/design, the odd bit of rambling with my Dad, and despairing at the state of modern football (apart from at Lionel Messi - whom I might have a little mancrush on...)
I'm a Fantasy, sci-fi, comic book, and Saturday-morning cartoon geek. Love stuff like Lord of The Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Blade Runner, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Supernatural, Babylon 5. Big fan of Transformers - the original '80s Generation 1 stuff rather than Bayformers.
I'm from the UK South Coast just turned 40 and got hooked on note phones it was very annoying having such a long time between 3 and 8 I've just managed to get a 8 which is awesome (and will be out of date in a couple of months I'm sure)
I use my phone for everything I used to be a computer engineer at IBM on pc's all day long but due to disability I cannot sit at a desk or use a keyboard and mouse even a tablet is very hard because I can't hold it I do have my mums old tab s on a flex arm in the bedroom as a TV controller to pick stuff off our media server or music etc and smart home things light and fan (I really want to get some more things a robot hoover is 1st on my wishlist and door locks with a camera 2nd maybe one day)
Its really amazing what a few things can do to help
If Samsung wants anything tested for disability compliance I'm all in
First time Samsung user after a long line of Anroid phones (after the ill fated Nokia N900). Got an S8 just last month mostly because it ticked all the boxes for what I wanted from my phone: headphone jack, reasonably powerful SoC, at least a FHD screen and possibly waterproofing and means to root. I was against AMOLED for a very long time, I hated the screen on the S3 and could still see artifacts on the S4, and after that I just ignored anything with a pentile-matrix arrangement, but now I'm pleasantly surprised. My previous phones were from Xiaomi right from the MiOne until the Mi4 I used up until now, but I found Xiaomi to go in a way I didn't like (no headphone jack, copying Apple and all the mistakes Apple made along with it, closed bootloaders, etc), and Samsung in the meantime cleaned down TouchWiz to a state where I could tolerate it (in the S4 era it looked like it's own clanky knockoff). It's not to say I didn't find any problems with the S8, but overall it's a good phone I'm happy with.
Thanks for creating this thread!
I'm Tina --- I am new with anything Samsung, has just received my S9+ 256 yesterday :smileyvery-happy: and already got my way around the basics... and managed to ruin my Zagg shield when trying to put it on 😞
I'm looking forward to use all of its potentials. My line of work as system analyst requires fast phone with heaps of storage and big RAM ... I'm doing interractive presentations too, training and such... I am hoping S9+ will be up for the tasks.
I've been reading the '8 most helpful tips', '23 tips & tricks' and such online...
I'm wondering, for powerusers, which one(s) of S9+ functionalities and specs you value most?
I'd love to hear your input/comment/tips/hints and anything in between!!!
I'm Tracy, I'm originally from Newcastle, but moved down to Yorkshire for university. I've been working for Samsung for almost 2 years now!
I love technology, photography, art, travel, being at the seaside, going to the cinema and TV shows - Although I have so many to catch up on, because I can't stop rewatching The Office US and Friends over and over again! Speaking of Friends, how many of you have been to Friendsfest? I go every year with my best friend 10/10 would recommend.
I'm also in love with my PS4, and I've recently bought a PSVR and my life is now complete.
You'll see me around the forums commenting on threads, dishing out kudos and accepting solutions.
P.S Maybe my signature gave it away, but I also love Sherlock... and Benedict Cumberbatch!
This morning I've just found out the glory of the Edge functions & I'm really REALLY over the moon!!!
What a time saver and I love the fact that I can do what I thought only be made available for Galaxy Note Edge folks...
Et ... voila!
Very impressive! 💖
