Xbox Game Pass

This was the one kept me busy during last 2-3 months – finally came to earth at late of last month.

Anyone in US using T-Mobile can get 1 month of free service with T-Mobile Tuesday – need to redeem by end of day though.. My old job meets my current job.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Samsung Galaxy S8+

20170531_21520820170531_221159

Awesome new device.. well every new device is awesome anyhow..

Good battery, convenient face recognition (though it doesn’t always work) and big screen and nice curve edge experience.

First Samsung Android device after Exhibit 4G back at 2011(Uh?) ๐Ÿ™‚

Interesting conversation with T-Mobile Retail Store Rep

Well.. it was a funny discussion – “know your enemy if you are trying poke something”..

I went to T-Mobile store at company’s campus and this is how the conversation went..

Me: I want to add 2 lines on my account

Rep: How long will you have it?

Me: not sure but maybe 2-3 months for the visitors?

Rep: Then, why don’t you go with prepaid with $50 per line?

This was the moment I felt this guy was trying to makeย crap out of me, but I smiled (nice and reasonable try so far..)

  • $20 for 2 line with basic data vs $100 for similar (maybe more data?)
  • Well, obviously I am on Microsoft discount plan and I am clever enough to know prepaid doesn’t qualify for that while my postpaid gets discount..

Then, this guy threw another bomb – and started to make me think the integrity of this guy – at me by sayingย if I go to prepaid he can waive the activation fee.

  • Well I am again clever enough to know there is no activation fee in Prepaid
  • BTW there is no Activation fee at all maybe just SIM kit fee
  • He said it is hard to get 2 lines cancel after 3 month and you need to have the line active for 120 days.. WTF – this is so 90s tactic done by spooky dealers I knew in past..

So, I was wondering whether I should reveal my background or shout back to his bullshit that he isย talkingย commission charge back. Anyhow I simply started at him for a moment & other reps…and everybody was avoiding my eye contact.ย Boy you chose a wrong person to play with – Trust me I was living and dying with how the comp works when at my old days at T-Mobile.. haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Then, as a last another bomb which I just found at very last min and he didn’t tell me on data plan

Rep: sign everything over there

Me: (was reading all the details) Wait how about the data?

Rep: It is 6G with $15 per line..

Me: What? I want the free plan that will be enough

Rep: That is retired so you need to be on 6GB

So, I was feeling terrible at this momentย – but just signed and paid the SIM cost and walked out. Then, made a call to customer care and changed to the plan I originally wanted (whichย he never checked with me)

Maybe I looked dumb Asian not knowing what I am up for,ย but the most crazy thing is this all happened at the Microsoft campus store. I totally cannot believe this as a proud alumni of the company…?! BTW I checked & remember your name on the badge..

LG V10

WP_20151208_005

After 2 years and 9 months of Windows phone journey, back to Android – but trying my best effort not to donate everything to evil company though.

Other than one scary blue screen, looks good –ย had to install a lot of Apps again with scratching my head to bring back memoriesย ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Starbucks, Mint, Office, Nest,ย Chase – Ah I can do mobile banking again!!!

Phone design looks decent especially

  • Dual screen experience is better than I thought – pretty useful actually (finding where to set up is hard :))
  • Pointer finger/backside button control – This wasย originally tried by Motorola inย years before and adopted by LG in recent models, but

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

WP_20131210_002

Finally, bought Galaxy Note 3. Amazing devices, and 30 min of work to set up for my wife made my lovely ATIV S look so tiny and old-fashioned..

Beautifully designed sold square look and fast processer with tons of software loaded into. Feels like some of the softwares areย still useless but I do see Samsung’s effort to differentiate the device with lots of nice softwares/applications. (i.e Galaxy to Galaxy migration app worked beautifully smooth..)

Anyhow, the take for me was – now I got a “small android ablet” called Samsung Galaxy 1 in my hand… ๐Ÿ™‚

T-Mobile LTE!

Has been noticing LTE mark showing up on my new phone about a week or two ago when the bus passes Factoria in Bellevue, and as the spot was very limited, and obviously looks like there are someย handover issues between networks – wasn’t able to connect smoothly and do the real test on how LTE works on phone in running buses.

Finally, had a chance to do the quick test at QFC factoria.. it is much faster than HSPA+… and my new phone gets it well so my fingers are crossed for quick expansion/stablization of LTE network
