The Introduce Yourself Thread

Figured we should have a thread like this.

 

Hi all! I'm AntS. :smiling-face-with-sunglasses:

 

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.

 

(LOL. And I love that RyanM's introduction thread for me was liked by someone called @Anonymous User. Oosh! :keithlemon: )

@Simon44: Well, that's your Christmas surprise spoiled. :robotsad:

 

It's definitely odd. Any Samsung products you've bought recently?

Hi I'm Dave. I'm almost 50 (in just over 2 months) and my first phone was a Nokia/Mobira Cityman 1320 TACS way back in 1987, which by my calculations is 30 years ago and when I was proud to be a Yuppy!!!

 

Since that time I've had a selection of Nokia/ Sony Ericson and Motorola phones right upto the Nokia E61 smart phone, when I switched to an iPhone 3GS in 2010. Since that time, I've had a succession of iPhones upto and including a 6s+ (and required iWatch) which I replaced with an Galaxy S8 last November and a Gear S3 Classic watch for this Christmas (Actually two weeks before! 😉).

 

Work wise, I've had mostly non-descript and basic Nokia/ Sony Ericsson phones, Samsung flip, motorola flip etc, followed by a Blackberry Curve. My current work phone, is a Samsung Galaxy Note4, which does all I need and is still going strong. 

 

Tablet wise, I've owned a no-make Android tablet that lasted a whole week! Replaced by an iPad1 3G, iPad Mini2 WiFi, Microsoft Surface with keyboard and a Samsung Tab S2 WiFi, which I've now had for a year or so.

 

I've been on the internet since dial up and I'm into photography. I currently own a Canon 35mm SLR and Canon DSLR and I love walking in both North Wales and the Cairngorms National Park. I've probably missed out a lot about me, but that just about sums it up!

Hi there & welcome :-).

You say that you're having problems with the stock Samsung keyboard. 

Have you tried "Swiftkey" which is available in the Play store?

It's a great keyboard for swiping...probably the best. (Plus you can change up the look of it with different themes too).

😊✌🏼

Try "Swiftkey" from the play store.
It's a brilliant keyboard if you're into swiping (probably the best), plus you can keep it fresh by adding different themes too).
Enjoy 🙂

Hi im The Wall Re Pink Floyd.

Im a loyal royal fan (not royal family) the football royals of berkshire. I have Samsumg S8 Note a non working S4 and S2. 32"" Samsumg tv samsung sd cards ssd etc etc. Samsung stuff is just reliable. 

Although im still gutted about the S4. Its stuck on boot up. Im sure its a software issue or like rom. I used it for gaming b4 i got my S8. So i use S8 and Note 4. If it was possible to speed up the Note 4 it would be better than S8. Note 4 really was a damm good fone. Anyway gtg. I did ask community about Google Newsstand running fast and smooth to slow and juddery. What causes this? A device maintenance solves this but only for a period of time? And its the difference of 99% and a full 100% help
