My Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Experience

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

The beginning of the year, I was informed that my friend and I won a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. I was informed some few weeks later that we could already claim our prize. My friend and I decided to claim our prize a week after our Senior’s Retreat, which was the week of our prelim exams.

It’s the first time we won something this expensive. At first, my friend and I were really afraid that we might have fallen into some trap, or scam. We tried to remain optimistic about it though. After reaching the office the representative asked  us for our IDs for basic identity verification and handed us our prize. My friend and I were dumbfounded and just sat there. The days from the time we were informed that we won to the day we were about to claim our prize seemed like a dream to both of us. The dream finally had become a reality when we had the prize in our hands. We were all smiles from that time on.

I was very impressed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is very light. I am no techie so I won’t go in depth. The sounds were amazing. The touchscreen was also good. I had a bit of  adjusting in using the tab because it was my first time using a Samsung Android. A little adjusting was not bad. It was not that difficult figuring out how to use the tab.

My only disappointment is that the rear camera is only 3MP and the front camera is only VGA. Both the front and rear camera doesn’t have any flash features nor do they have any auto focus function. I love taking photos and the camera is a huge aspect of my deciding factor. I always say that if a gadget has poor camera functions it’s a gadget not worth it. But who am I to complain, I got it for free. It’s not that its unbearably awful anyway.

Well, that’s me trying out the front camera of the Tab 2 at 12 in the morning. I didn’t edit the photo in any way. The camera is very MEH but the rest of the functions are alright. I had been enjoying tinkering around my Tab 2.

Have you tried any Android gadget or Samsung gadget? What is your favorite tablet so far?



Cheers to a Fabulous New Year!

My new year didn’t  exactly start out right. I got bitten by my friend’s dog on the afternoon of January 1. Amusingly, he bit me right after eating the dog treat I gave him. Despite the pain, I can’t help but laugh at the whole thing.

Two days after, my friend texted me informing me that we both had won a Samsung Galaxy Tab. I just had woken up from my nap that night she texted. My mind was still very groggy and the only reactions that came to me were: “We won at the Paskuhan raffle?” “It’s a SCAM! SCAM I TELL YOU!” But my reply to her text was, “Oh really? I will check it out once my computer finishes booting.”

When my computer finished booting, I immediately logged on my Facebook account to see what the fuss has been about. I received three private messages from my friends informing me that I won.  I was wondering how I won until I saw my friend’s post on my wall that I won from Samsung’s Christmas promo, Samsung Galaxy Christmas Wishlist! I realized that I joined their raffle promo earlier in December. I already forgot about it, though it crossed my mind once or twice but I never made an effort to check out who the winners were. I could not believe I won. My eyes were glued on the screen thinking, “Wow, is this for real?”

The mechanics were to create a Christmas wishlist by matching 12 Samsung Galaxy phones to 12 of  Facebook friends (aka Chosen friends) whom they want to gift the phones to. I only made two wishlists instead of troubling myself to create a wishlist every single day. This was a raffle so winning is by pure chance and there’s no harm in taking chances. I took the chance and said to myself that if God wanted me to win, He will let me win. Samsung  Galaxy Christmas Wishlist 2012

I was being stupid that after thanking the Lord for His blessings, I questioned Him. I was like, “Why are You so nice to me?” “Why do You love me so much?” “I am such a failure, yet You’re too kind to me.” I could feel that the Lord wanted to smack my head right then and there and telling me, “Stupid woman. Isn’t this what you wanted? Can’t you just be thankful that I love you and I know what you need and what you want?” Anyway, I repented and thanked Him all over again afterwards.

My friend and I are very much excited to get out tabs! I spend some of my idle time daydreaming what I will do with it. Actually, I still have no idea what I will do with it. I still have my handy secondhand desktop computer which makes the tablet a bit useless to me. I don’t know but I am sure that it’s going to be useful to me in the long run. 😉

Who cares about the mad dog who bit me, I won a Galaxy Tab 2! Whoopeedoo!

How was the beginning of your 2013?
