Community Spotlight: SamsungFanBoy

[ Edited ]

Community Spotlight: SamsungFanBoy

 

Hi everyone, happy Friday!

 

I hope you've been enjoying this past week and are looking forward to the sunny Saturday and Sunday ahead! ☀️

 

It's time to post a new Community Spotlight today! yahoo You might have seen SamsungFanBoy around on the Community since April this year, discussing various topics in several help boards as well as Discussions & Feedback. We thought it would be great to learn a bit more about him! Thanks very much @SamsungFanBoy  for answering our questions below. thumbsup 

 

Don't hesitate to say hi everyone and ask if you have any additional questions not listed here! smiling

 


 

What's your name and where are you from?

My name is Simon and I'm from the East Midlands.

 

Why did you join and stay on the community?

I joined the EE community when it first started up (I was an EE customer at the time). I quite enjoyed it and end up with them making me a Community Manager giving me access to the lounge area because of my knowledge. They asked me if I'd worked in telco before which I hadn't so that was pretty cool. That's why when I left EE, I joined the O2 Community. I guess I like to use it as a way as well to keep up to date.

 

Based on your username, you're obviously a fan of Samsung. Smiley Very Happy What made you a fan originally?

I am a fan of Samsung. My first Samsung phone was the Samsung A300 on BT Cellnet (now O2) which was the first black and white flip phone that had the dual display so you could see from the front who was calling you which wasn't previously possible and by flipping the phone up on the older models, you had no choice but answer as they used to answer automatically. This gave users a choice to answer or not. I loved it and thought it was ace! I've loved their phones ever since!

I had their first touch screen phone the Samsung Tocco F480, to their first smartphone on their own now defunct operating system called Bada which was the Samsung Wave S8500 then I went onto the Galaxy S range. I started off with their very first watch which was called Samsung Gear and had a lovely orange strap with a camera protruding out at the side which very often used to be caught and I'd be recording the pavement as I was walking around lol! I also had the first very Galaxy Tab 10.1 so yeah, I should have shares. Smiley Tongue

 

What toppings belong on your favourite pizza? 

My favourite pizza is probably a margarita with extra mozzarella, sundried tomatoes and basil pesto.

 

Do you have any pets?

I don't have any pets although I like cats.

 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I love to get out and about. Travel and see new and exciting places!

 

Which future development in tech are you excited about?

I'm definitely most excited about the 5G roll out. The speeds are going to be amazing! I just hope it comes to my region fairly quickly. Smiley Happy

 

What's your favourite TV show and movie?

I've just recently subscribed to a TV app and I've been streaming the Chernobyl Series to my TV and I've absolutely loved it! Another TV series fave is The Tudors which was aired a few years ago.

My favourite film is probably The Cunjuring 2. Not many horror films make me jump but that one did!

 

Do you listen to any specific music genre and what's your favourite artist/band?

I'm definitely a 90s head when it comes to music.. Mainly Electronic, Pop & Trip Hop. I have different favourite artists so really I can't choose just one.

I do really like Röyksopp and Susanne Sundfør though. I was also a fan of the original Sugababes.

 

If you had to spend 5 months on a deserted island isolated from the rest of the world, what 5 items would you take with you?

If I was to spend 5 months on a desert island

I would need:

  1. Yorkshire Tea
  2. My Galaxy Buds
  3. My Galaxy S10 for my music
  4. A handheld fan
  5. Plenty of water Smiley Tongue

Hi @SamsungFanBoy 

A great spotlight. (Lovely to hear you are a fan of Samsung....my phone of choice, always)

Great to see you loved Chernobyl. One of my favourite series this year.

 

Just a few questions from me.

You say you like to Travel...so where is your favourite place?

You love 90's music, mainly electronic etc. Do you like The Prodigy? 

Re your Desert Island choice.....where would you charge your S10? rofl

 

That's it from me so far. Lovely spotlight and great to know a bit more about you. wink

Re: Community Spotlight: SamsungFanBoy

Thanks to @Marjo and the team for another interesting spotlight - look out though, sounds as if someone is after you!!
Did you try the Omnia @SamsungFanBoy? I still have mine kicking about and it is surprisingly heavy for such a little thing!
I was going to ask about charging, but would you not want an air con unit? Or a hammock/other bed?
Now using the LG V30.

Previously: LG G4, Sony Z1, HTC Sensation XE, Samsung Omnia i900
Try the Tech Galaxy Note 4
Try the Tech Lumia 640LTE and Microsoft Band

Hi SamsungFanBoy. Lovely to know a bit more about another Samsung fan. I love their phones, their TVs, blu-ray players just to mention 3. 

 

Like @Cleoriff I'm curious about where you've been in the world and where you'd like to go next?

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

LOL! I was multitasking at the time of filling this out so I didn't really give it too much thought! Guess I might have needed some food too. Smiley Tongue
