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: )

Hello!

My name is Carl. I've been working at Samsung for just over a year now and my hobbies include long walks by the lake, laughing whimsically at the prancing ponies by the barn and staring nonchalantly at the stars. I also like to record music, play games and look at dank memes.

Hi,

 

I am currently researching issues and problems associated with the following TV:  Samsung QE65Q8F

 

I have a vast knowledge of electronics, computers and many other devices and enjoy fault finding and learning how to fix errors and issues without having to pay someone else to find out. I am usually pretty good in identifying issues that should not be happening. Hopefully I will be able to find some answers here and help others to fix their issues.

 

Steve.

Hi all

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it was very annoying having such a long time between 3 and 8 I've just managed to get a 8 which is awesome (and will be out of date in a couple of months I'm sure)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

Hi all!

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.

Hello AntS!

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!!!

 

Cheers

Tina

Hi all!

 

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. 

 

:womanlol:

 

P.S Maybe my signature gave it away, but I also love Sherlock... and Benedict Cumberbatch!


Say "hello!" and

Andddd....

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! 💖

Hi @TinaR! :robothappy: Is that "NZ" for New Zealand perchance? (Did I mention how much of a LOTR & Hobbit fan I am?)

Hi @AntS

No, you haven't mentioned that yet.

 

Yes, NZ stands for New Zealand... South Island to be precise... Where most part of my fave of The LOTR sequel, The Return of the King, were located 😀

Hello,

I would like to introduce myself. 

My name is George. I am a part-time editor on Travel Mono news site. I am a big fan of Samsung tech, and I am always on the outlook for new tech to incorporate into my travels and articles.

I can't say I am very tech savvy, but that doesnt stop me being inspired and enjoying new technologies. 

I am using an iphone at the moment (is that a swear word here?), but it barely functions, and I am looking to replace it with a Samsung upgrade this year. 

I am also researching a new laptop and tablet to purchase for myself. A laptop that works well in humid and warm climates is a priority.

Samsung TVs - I swear by them. I have had a few over the years, and I am really impressed with all I have purchased. My wife convinced me to buy an LG a few years ago. Never again! terrible purchase. So looking for another high end Samsung TV to replace that watse of money. 

Going to use this community for my tech research, and maybe learn something from you guys :smiling-face:
