I just used a Samsung Galaxy SL (GT-I9003)

Hi guys!

I maybe an outdated dude, but hey! I just got my hands on a Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003, and its a freakin awesome experience. XD Though I just managed to test in a couple of minutes, still its a very nice experience for who cannot afford to buy those stuff.

My friend and I just talked about the ads he had posted on facebook. He was looking for interested individuals to venture too his job, and I pretended to be really interested about it. XD I already know it from the first place that it’s a MLM scheme, (multi-level marketing) in which it is the kind of job that I never ever want to get in, even at part time.

My friend is under it for part time only, (he’s a student too at our university) he told me that he got his phone from that work. Guess what, his phone was a Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003!

But he keeps on insisting to share information about how much he really earns from his job. Hahah! I still doesn’t want to try it, based from others’ tips, stay away from MLM. There’s a lot more you can do. Haha. And that is right.

Anyways, this post isn’t about the MLM stuff and awareness. When my friend and I personally met at school earlier this day, I asked him if I can do a hands-on on his Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003 phone. Good thing is, he’s very kind!

Here are some of the crappy pics I had taken lately using my poor old Nokia N70, under Medium size settings and low-light condition. Of course, the photo quality sucks. XD

I can easily get myself fall in love in anything that is sexy. XD

It’s light, yet it’s much bigger on the phone I am currently using. But since I already got an experience using a Nokia N8, its somehow the same feel. :D

As what I expected, the touch screen response is pretty amazing. i get no lags, a very clear display, and a responsive touch. I just tried playing a couple of games, gaming on Android devices is pretty cool. I also checked the about on the settings, and as what I had said, on the short period of my hands-on, I can just do some few stuff. The threaded SMS messaging is also nice. (don’t tell my friend I opened his inbox XD)

When the phone had locked automatically after I got it idle (thanks to my other friend that did made a chat with me), I decided to return it again to my friend. It got a password, and I became lazy to ask him to re-unlock his phone for me, and that ends my Samsung Galaxy GT-I9003 experience today.

This phone is something new for me. It’s my first time to get my hands on this mobile android device. So if anybody cares to know its specs:

Samsung Galaxy SL Price

I can see people saying that they got this phone around only the price tag of Php15k-20k. It’s original price might have gone up to Php27k, but I am not really sure. Im trying to check it out at Merimobiles but it seems that they aren’t selling those items there. Merimobiles is an online store of good and cheap gadgets, even at more than 50% off of the real price. They have a good reputation, you might want to check it out.

Tried seeking it on online stores handled by Pinoy re-sellers but I still can’t find it. Hahah.

If you got a very good eyes to notice, yeah, were on a comp. shop and its our DOTA time. XD

I wish I could possibly try more cool phones in the future and with more time. I really want to try using free internet on Android phones via OpenVPN, (WiFi Tethering ftw!) as well as using Opera Mini Handler on Android. But hey, I’ll be having an Android Pad (APAD) in the next days. That means, I will now be going to share tricks related to APAD devices. ^_^
