Scoop TechLab Competition Finalists Entry:
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A GALAXY NOTE II ON THE TELECOM SMARTPHONE NETWORK?
I must admit that I have been a diehard Apple fan for the last 5 years, but after watching all 8.10 glorious minutes of the product concept clip for this phone, I have been converted.
Actually, the term ‘phone’ seems rather quaint when used in reference to the Galaxy. It’s unrivalled on the market, as it has taken the best parts of everything that is currently out there and invented its own category. It features tools and tips and tricks that revolutionise what I had previously thought I needed from a phone.
As a university student, excellent multitasking and time management are two key factors in guaranteeing success. With the Galaxy’s veritable plethora of features and apps this would be made much, MUCH easier. Something as simple as being able to simultaneously use two screens for separate tasks would make my life less stressful. In fact, I would go to lectures more often just to use this beautiful machine; note taking and assessment planning would become bliss.
Winning would definitely help with my studies, as well as being detrimental to them. This is because the enemy and constant companion of all students is procrastination. If I won I would most likely end up ignoring essays to explore and tinker with my phone, not to mention watch video after video on a screen that is a million times better than the TV we have in our flat.
Being able to document my friends embarrassing themselves and my nieces and nephews growing up in vibrant clarity is a further plus. As is having so many editing tools at my fingertips for the many photos and videos that I would regularly take.
IPhone 5 was where I was headed for my next upgrade, but why not instead go for the best out there?
