I was forced to get a new phone last week and I ended up getting a 16G Samsung Galaxy S III in navy blue.
Yay? Not really!
Actually, the Galaxy S III itself is pretty damn good. It’s just that the situation that led me to having to replace my old phone was pretty bad…
I went out with the Monsieur and his long-time friends from Quebec on a Saturday night and they decided that they wanted to hit up a nightclub. The music was actually fairly good at Gravity’s main room, but my phone was stolen straight from my purse.
It was an HTC One S, which is a really decent phone! But, it was already showing a bit of wear and tear since it was only 8G, it was already kind of old when I first got it in 2012 and the lock button didn’t always work.
I wasn’t overly broken up about losing that particular phone, but I was so panicked because I connected my phone to my work documents!
TOTALLY. FREAKED. OUT.
Luckily, the Monsieur took charge and lent me his phone so I could change all of my passwords right away. He even came with me to get my new cell phone since I needed one for a conference on the Monday and Tuesday afterwards!
(I still have to get him a thank you gift of some sort, but more on that later.)
Anyway, I’m still trying to get used to Samsung Galaxy S III since the interface is only slightly different from the HTC One S. Honestly, the change with small details like icon placement, different widgets and colour schemes feels a bit like having the furniture moved an inch to the left. Something’s a bit off, but it’s so hard to detect sometimes.
I ordered a couple of phone cases off of Amazon.ca and they just came in today. Thank goodness, since it’s already almost slipped out of my hands a few times…
This is a pretty sturdy two-piece case that has a really nice, slightly rubbery feel. It also feels a little too stiff on first glance, but the case snaps together REALLY tightly, so I’m really happy with it!
Verdict: 4.5/5 – It feels like a good everyday case that I can easily spot in my giant handbags and it’s actually the same shade of green as one of my old Blackberry phones. It’s perfect for the price I paid, but I’m still a little worried about its durability.
I have no idea how or why this gorgeous case was priced so low because it’s seriously an amazing piece of functional art!
This is easily one of the best phone accessories that I’ve ever purchased! It’s so intricately carved, it feels extremely comfortable to hold and each piece is clearly one-of-a-kind due to the gorgeous wood panel.
I would highly recommend gifting a Carved phone case for any occasion! They’ve got an incredibly wide selection of pre-made designs available but there’s also some options to customize your case built into the website.
Hopefully, I won’t break or lose this phone since I actually quite like it with the case like this!
Now, if only I can make sure the Monsieur would like the book I’m planning on getting him just as much…
