Why is switched from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy (iOS to Android)

1. Bluetooth. Bluetooth in iPhone is useless, I am so happy whenever I want to transfer a song, picture, document… from my laptop to my phone, i can do it through bluetooth. It was so annoying having to do it through iTunes, connecting cables… Plus I can share anything from my mobile phone to other Android phones.

2. Battery. Samsung Galaxy allows you to change battery! The other day I arrived home with only 5% of battery charge and had to leave in 15 minutes, obviously didn’t have time to charge my battery. But I have a extra battery, so I simply placed that one which is at 92%. Not possible with an iPhone. Yes you can buy a external charger… but it’s annoying!

3. Pictures. This is really annoying in iOs, all the photos (camara, Whatsapp, screenshots…) are all saved under the same folder, and you can’t organise them as you wish. Android allows you to create folders where you can place your pictures as you wish.

4. Closing all apps. Android you can close down all apps by simply clicking one button. iOs you have to close them one by one (unless you have jailbreak).

5. SIM card. Changing SIM card on iPhone is a pain in the ass, you have to carry a pin with you.

6. External hard disk. You can have external memory by purchasing a SD card on Samsung Galaxy.

I think iOs is still a better operating system, much smoother and better design. But Apple’s policy of having everything under their bubble is annoying, and that is why I made the switch to an Android mobile.

Bangkok

Thailand is possibly the best country I have been to till now. Travelled in Janaury 2012,.

Highlights:

- Stayed at Best Western Hotel, in Sukhumvit Soi 20, its a good area.
– All my friends told me before going that Thai people are very very nice, they are always smiling and are always extremely polite, and yes, that was the case!
– Bangkok airport is very nice, very clean, immigration takes a bit of time as there are many people.
– Food was good, not great, but much better than Hong Kong.
– Transport, food, shopping… everything is relatively cheap!
– Went to Grand Palace, which was beautiful.
– Do visit Lebua Tower top floor, where you have Sirocco Bar/restaurant (where Hangover 2 was shot), the view is amazing.
– There is a massage place every corner, and its really cheap, like 5 euros for an hour.
– There is a taylor every corner too, made myself couple of shirts. You can get a tailored made suit for like 150 USD.
– Great malls (Emporium, Terminal 21, MBK…)

Missed tiger temple (Kanchanburi), elephant ride, floating market… :(

Recommend everyone visiting Thailand, its such a great country. Phuket, Phi Phi, Koh Samui… have amazing beaches and views, and that must be another level.
