Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Recall

So it’s been 2 weeks since we were contacted by Harvey Norman to recall our Note 7 mobile phone due to the internal battery exploding issue that is going around. So we took it back for a new replacement which will be available on 21st September 2016.

Harvey Norman and other resellers are also offering a courtesy Samsung J1 Mini phone that we get to keep, or get a loan S7 and swap it back for your Note 7 when it arrives. Also we get to keep all the accessories that came with the Note 7 inside the box too! So now I have an extra fast charger to USB-C and headphones.

I’m still considering if I should get a full refund while still waiting for the new replacement. The reason is because I have a feeling that when the phone goes back on sale to the public in October the price might drop.

I recommend that you go to Samsung’s web site for more information on the recall process, or contact the place of purchase.

But those are just some of the common features I use mostly on daily basis. Continue reading

So last month my mobile contract finished and have been thinking about buying a new mobile phone. I have been looking at getting the Windows Lumia 640 for a while, so I did some research and reading up a lot on reviews.

20160124_020637Just at the beginning of the new year 2016 Dicksmith was clearing out the Lumia 640 prepaid phone for only $99.

Since I have moved over to Optus as my provider, I made the jump and bought myself a new mobile phone.

Straight away I downloaded the Microsoft Insider’s App and upgraded my mobile to Windows 10. The look and feel is consistent with the desktop version, but the only disappointment I had was the lack of apps for windows mobile compared to Android and iOS. I was so disappointed that I couldn’t find any of the apps I used to have on my old Android phone. Continue reading
