WTF was SAMSUNG thinking?? Quick Review: Samsung Moment

April 13, 2010

WTF military fitted blk embroideredhatMy phone died and I quickly needed a new one. What to do?

Mini back story, I’ve been avoiding signing a new contract for years, so my phones have been off Craigslist but right now the only thing worth buying there is a Palm Pre and… well… that’s a piece of crap. I wouldn’t take one for FREE with a free calling plan (which is kind of a lie because I would take any free phone with free calling plan). Anyway, I’m broke and have no choice but sign a new contract! Arrrrgh!

So, here’s what I was looking for in functionality:

  • Good camera & video cam, ‘cuz I’m a dad on Facebook.
  • Quick access to social networking tools, ‘cuz I’m a blogger.
  • Hootesiute. Shout out!
  • Android or iPhone, ‘cuz I’m a gadget geek and that’s what “everyone” has.
  • A phone that won’t be a complete piece of crap in 2 years because I’m forced to sign a %$#&ing contract!

Here’s what I wanted to avoid:

  • Palm Pre, ‘cuz I just had one and HATED it. I know “hate” is a strong word. I HATED it.
  • A Windows phone, ‘cuz “everyone” hates those.
  • An iPhone, ‘cuz “everyone” hates AT&T.
    • If I wanted to not be able to call people on a fancy device I’d buy an iPad (that’s a dropped-call joke).

So all that being said, I found myself standing in a Sprint store faced with two choices, the Samsung Moment and the HTC Here. I bought the Moment. Thankfully there was a 30 day trial period!

My gripes about the Samsung Moment:

  • Samsun MomentThe friggin’ plug in the worst possible place ever. Seriously. Put this phone up on your dash to use the GPS and the plug will stick out way up into the air in front of your windshield! Even worse, if you ever have to charge it and talk at the same time you will be staring at the plug for as log as you’re on the call (this WILL happen, just wait ’till you read about the battery).
  • Micro USB. Really? Who the hell uses this? Oh yeah, the Palm Pre… and that’s a piece of crap. Besides, this phone is HUGE! A tiny little plug seems ridiculous.
  • Great idea > physical keyboard. Horrible idea > changing around the keys. Try to type “google.com/reader” and see how long it takes you to find the “/” key. WTF!?!
  • Menu button over the swipe pad. Perfectly placed so you accidently click menu everytime you mean to “swipe” the friggin’ pad.
  • Awkward: Groove at the top right where swipe down the notification bar.
  • Awkward: Although the construction is solid, the keyboard doesn’t really click snugly when the phone is slid together. There is always this little separation on the body where there shouldn’t be.
  • Reboot time, in seconds, takes about FOREVER. Grab a pillow and get comfy, you’re not doing anything with this phone for a very very very long time.
  • Swipe pad: It sucks. It’s too sensitive and NOT intuitive. When you finally figure out how it works, you realize it just doesn’t work.
    • *Note, if you ever think you can improve something like the “trackball” get over it. Even if your widget IS better, everyone will still try to use it like a TRACKBALL and then they’ll write blog posts about how it sucks.
  • Battery life. Wow, the battery on this thing is horrible! There is no possible way this phone,  fully charged, could make it past lunchtime if you used it for anything other than a paperweight.
    • Sure I could buy extra batteries, but why would I? I’m getting the “fancy phone” so I can CARRY less! I mean, it’s no wonder the batter time sucks considering how loud the speakers are and considering the keyboard lights up… phones have enough problems with battery life as is without extra lights!! In fact, now that I think about it, this phone is so friggin’ big I seriously do not understand why they didn’t pop 2 batteries in that bad boy! At least throw a giant one in it!!

So was good about the Samsung Moment? Not much including:

  • Great speakers! Perfect for playing videos back and viewing music or youtube.
  • Awesome speaker phone! Never had a problem hearing anyone on speaker.
  • Arrow keys on the physical keyboard were a really nice way to navigate around web pages and text, especially when you just typed a whole bunch of stuff.
  • Light up keyboard looked super cool… but the funky key placement made it basically worthless.
HTC Hero

Only $79! Click to get an HTC Hero!

Ok, the Moment’s now been returned and I traded up for the HTC Hero. I’m pissed I lost the keyboard, but the interface on this thing is really nice!

It’s got a mini USB plug, just like my other gadgets and some hard drives so I don’t have to get ANOTHER cord and the trackball is an actual trackball! Amazing! …and it works really well for scrolling pages. Another nice feature is the “multiple windows” browsing screen that HTC will more than likely be sued over by Apple. Haven’t taken any pics or video yet, but it’s a 5mp camera so I have high hopes.

The real question is, how am I going to convince my wife we need an EVO when I just bought this friggin’ phone?? If you have any suggestions let me know in the comments… also, if you have gadget love / hate stories please share!!!!

Google Buzz is BROKEN… FIX IT! #googlebuzz #fail

February 12, 2010

Dear Google,

You f*ck3d up. Here’s why:

EMAIL FAIL: Gmail conversation collect nicely in strings of individual messages, yet every time I get an email with a buzz update (the email notification is awesome!) it’s horribly long list of messages I’ve ALREADY seen. Reverse it. Separate them.

EMAIL REPLY FAIL: So I get an email with the latest update in my Buzz stream and guess what I do… I hit reply and, well, I REPLY. Do you know what happens next? Instead of my reply ending up as a buzz comment I get an email because I just sent my self an email. Brilliant! (<sarcasm). Even FB figure out reply via email. You could argue that Gmail has this feature:-)

NO CHAT: Google talk… uh, did you forget you had a chat product? I just had an obnoxious conversation via buzz. Comment. Comment. Comment… where’s the friggin CHAT button? Go ahead and post the transcript during or after the chat… just gimme a chat button! (which, by the way, could include video)

Now why is this so irritating? If you didn’t notice, these are features that already exist in you current Google products! This is like a tv station shooting a new program with a consumer video camera because they FORGOT they had a studio filled with HD equipment.

APP FAIL: Where the F*c# is Farmville? Just kidding:-)

Oh yeah, and please put a rush on my Google Voice invite.

Serious note: Amazing “behind the scenes” insight on Buzz >>

Just say NO to Twitter’s Retweet! (uh, please rt)

January 18, 2010

Don't be an a hole wht on blk mns LongSleeve shirt

Been a couple of months now and folks are clicking away on Twitter‘s “retweet” feature…

DAMMIT PEOPLE STOP!

You’re driving me completely insane! Here’s the problem – when you retweet using Twitter button there is no value to me WHATSOEVER. ALL I get is an arbitrary tweet added to my stream with NO explanation whatsoever! So, please people… for the love of (fill in personal deity here) retweet “old-school” with a note about why or a demeaning comment or wisecrack! Come ON! It’s for the children!

So why did Twitter do this to me? Because they’re chickens. They were worried that their feature would allow people to be more easily critical of big brands and the big brands would freak out and drop the PR hammer on poor little Twitter! Ugh, whatever.

Don’t believe me? Check out these bitch sessions:

Careful out there, ‘cuz you are what you tweet!
