Nokia 5800 XM or iPhone 3GS ?

Sunday, June 28, 2009 14 Comments A+ a-

Hi lovers !!

Well, 3months ago I putted a poll in my website (This one) to know what’s your suggestion about getting a new MP(mobile phone :P ), and the results are here :D …

77% of people voted for getting an iPhone (3G or 3GS)

20% of people voted for getting the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

3% voted for other but they didn’t mention it.

Well, I want to get an iPhone 3GS but I love Nokia’s products,so I’m kind of  confused.Here’s what I think of both of them, because eventually I’ll get one of them.

iPhone 3G S:

What I like about it :

  • - Its web browser is so cool specially with the full screen browsing.
  • - Its keyboard is amazing,while writing an e-mail or searching for a contact,it’s the best keyboard ever.
  • - Its look and feel is amazing, it’s thin and has a glossy look (From the style perspective).
  • - It gives you many possibilities with its apps and the new 3.0 firmware .
  • - It has photo and video recording with a quite good quality…

What I hate or I want in it:

  • - Its camera needs to have better quality specially for shooting videos.
  • - It needs to support SD card for ore storage if someone like me 32GB isn’t enough for him/her .
  • - Its browser doesn’t support Flash which too bad for YouTube and Viddler lovers like me ;) .
  • - It needs to be unlocked and jailbroken to be used here in Algeria and I hate jailbreaking electronics :( .
  • - It doesn’t support wallpapers (Not talking about when it’s locked).

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic :

What I like about it:

  • - Its look is so stylish O_0
  • - Its home page look.
  • - The support for wallpapers and even themes.
  • - Having a stylus with it.
  • - Its amazing camera with awesome photo and video quality.
  • - Its menu is familiar and clean.
  • - Its web browser supports Flash and it’s fast.
  • - It has an option for an SD card which is awesome.
  • - You don’t have to unlock it or jailbreak it to have it here in Algeria since Nokia has many stores here :D .

What I hate about it:

  • - Bad keyboard compared to iPhone’s one.
  • - It’s way thicker than the iPhone :s .

Conclusion :

Until I get one of them, I’m in favor of the Nokia even that I was and I’m still a huge iPhone fan and supporter.

Your turn : what do you think ?

I really would appreciate your opinion specially if you were a Nokia user and now you have or tried the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS.

Thanks and I’ll see you soon.

BEM paragraph

Monday, June 15, 2009 6 Comments A+ a-

Hello guys !

It has been a long time since I wrote something here,so I decided before I’ll give my paper to my English teacher as a souvenir, I’ll post the paragraph that I wrote in my BEM exam ( my national exams which I have to pass to graduate to high school “Secondary School” ).

Well, here we go…

What rights do they have?

In many places on our planet, children are being abused.The number of mistreated children is growing up every day.

Some people defend these children and their rights but others don’t.Either because they don’t care about them or because they say that they don’t  know what are the children’s rights .

A child needs a home,a family,a loving and caring society.To live, he needs freedom, education so he can create and plan for his future.His parents have to feed him, dress him and take care of him.His society have to protect him and make sure he feels like one of them.These are a few of their rights and the most important ones.

In the other hand, you can protect and help a child by contacting the authorities if you see a child being mistreated.”

Hope you liked it,please let me know what you really think :D .

Love you all and See you soon :P .

For MacBook, I’m so happy for Leopard users who’re going to upgrade to Snow Leopard :) and who knows, I might get a MacBook ;)
