I clung unto my Chinese Apple-cloned cellphone for an impressively long time before it finally kicked the bucket last week. A replacement had to be made and the sooner the better. I’m not a fanatic of cellphones, nor do I want to have the latest kid on the block. But I do realize that it’s a useful communications tool; specially when an emergency arises.
After diligently researching the Web for almost a week, I finally took the decision to buy a Samsung Galaxy 3S Nuo from a local electronic shop called Yoytec. Their prices are almost the same as those of Miami, Florida and plus they also accept MasterCards. 🙂
Below are the main specs of the electronic device:
- Dimensions: 5.38 x 2.79 x 0.34 inches
- Weight: 4.66 ounces
- Screen: 4.8 inches, super amoled, 720 x 1,280 pixels, density 306 ppi, multi-touch
- Memory: 16GB, 1.5 GB RAM, Micro SD card up to 64 GB
- Camera: 8 MP, 3,264 x 2,448 pixels, autofocus, flash LED, video 1,080p @30 frames per second
- Operating System: Android OS v4.3
- CPU: Quad-core 1.2/1.4 GHz Cortex A7
- Radio: FM stereo with RDS
- Battery: Li-Ion 2100 mAh
- Color: Pebble blue
- Price: $209.90 plus ITBMS 7 percent tax
For the price, the device is a good deal. It’s a smartphone; meaning that besides being a phone, it’s also a small computer. There are many productivity applicaations available on this puppy that will compete head-to-head with my Vaio laptop. I like that, being a computer nerd.
I’m scanning the Owner’s manual to see how much juice I can squeeze out of this phone; specially in the area of photography. The only problem I’ve seen so far is the duration of the battery. Even though I use the phone very little, the battery drain is evident. Last week, I had to recharge the battery every two days, even though I didn’t use it at all. Seems to me the operating system is too heavy for the battery. It’s not a big deal, but a bit cumbersome, specially if you have to go out and the device is discharged or with a low battery charge.
Oh, before I forget… I purchased a protective case specially designed for this phone by Samsung. It looks exactly like the device with the same pebble blue color and the name of the gadget on the front of the case. It looks pretty cool.

That it guys. The latest addition to my arsenal of technological gadgets. Good Day.
