Why You Should Use a Dual Sim Handset

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019


Life in the 21st century is a fast-paced, plugged in 24/7 kind of existence, so we’re always looking for ways to make life easier, cheaper and more convenient.

One way to achieve a streamlined daily routine is by upgrading your handset to a dual sim variety. Perfect for work-centric individuals, travellers and those who need to be contactable.

Our top choice for a dual sim handset? The Dual Sim Samsung Galaxy S9, now available for under £500.

Here are our top four reasons to swap to a dual sim device:

1 Access two numbers at once without the extra handset.  Streamline your bag, as you’ll have no need for carrying two phones and no need to keep switching SIM cards with the dual sim Samsung Galaxy S9.

2 Separate work and play. If you’re one of the crowds that need to have a dedicated line for work but don’t want to mix it with your home life it’s time to check out a dual sim handset. Dual SIM phones will let you know which line a call or text is coming through allowing you to differentiate if it’s a business or personal call before answering the phone.

3 Enjoy better coverage. Many of us spend our time in locations that have patchy coverage, which makes for frustrating use. Dual sim handsets allow you to access two different networks to increase your likelihood of coverage. You’ll never miss a call again.

4 Keep an international sim active for all your travel needs. With a dual sim handset, you’ll be able to use your phone internationally without having to switch out your regular SIM card. This will not only be more convenient but allows you to access cheaper rates overseas, without the expensive roaming charges. Leave behind the huge international roaming bills for good.

Convinced? It’s time to check out the Samsung Galaxy S9 Dual Sim Unlocked handset, on sale for under £500.

Keep your data Secure with Samsung KNOX on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

In an age where protecting your digital data is at the forefront of our minds and companies like BlackBerry are promising the most secure Android experience on their BlackBerry KEY2, Samsung are upping their game with some strong guarantees.

Samsung have preloaded their Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus with their high end security platform, KNOX. Let’s take a look at how these flagship devices are promising to protect your data on the go:


What is KNOX?

Samsung Knox Security

KNOX is Samsung’s defense-grade mobile security platform built into our devices. Simply turn on the device, and you’re protected.

By building a hardware-rooted trusted environment, KNOX provides a trusted environment, ensuring that enterprise-critical operations such as decryption of enterprise data, can only occur when core system components are proven to be uncompromised.

For many pieces of device software, such as the kernel and TrustZone apps, this is done by checking the cryptographic signature of each piece of software.

A trusted environment is hardware-rooted if both the cryptographic keys and code used to compute these signatures are tied back to unmodifiable values stored in hardware.

What are some key features of KNOX?

Key features of KNOX include Secure Boot, Trusted Boot, ARM® TrustZone®-based Integrity Measurement Architecture (TIMA), Security Enhancements for Android (SE for Android), and TrustZone-based Security Services.

The KNOX Workspace container is designed to separate, isolate, encrypt, and protect work data from attackers. This enterprise-ready solution also provides management tools and utilities to meet security needs of enterprises large and small.

Take part in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Photography Challenge

Monday, April 30th, 2018

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus offer a golden combination of water resistant design and top knotch photography capabilities which allow you to capture the shot in any condition.

Here’s 5 challenges to try out with your Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus:

Double Vision

Samsung Galaxy S9 Camera

Take a friend and find a reflective surface, be it a shop window, a puddle or any other shiny surface.

Then, decide how much of your friend you want to show. You could try showing all of the reflection and just some of the person, or just the reflection–or both. Play around for the best effect.


Neon Lights

 samsung galaxy s9 camera

Take a walk and locate a colourful neon sign at street level and have a friend strike a pose.  Use the light from the sign to light their face. Tap the screen to focus on your friend, drag the brightness scale left or right to darken or lighten, and then shoot.


The Aura

 samsung galaxy s9

Want to know how to create your very own colour filter? All you need is some glow sticks. Hold the sticks close to the camera lens and play around with their positioning. Now, tap the screen to focus on a friend, drag the brightness scale left or right to darken or lighten, and then shoot.

The Halo

 Samsung Galaxy S9

Get ‘The Halo’ effect with car headlights. Position a friend between you and stationary car headlights. Make sure they block the lights entirely for a stunning halo effect around their silhouette. Experiment with different poses and try shooting from a crouched position—not at eye height—for a more dramatic effect.


The Silhouette

 samsung galaxy s9 camera

The best time for capturing a stunning silhouette is Golden Hour—the hour before sunset. Have a friend stand in front of the colourful sky and start snapping. Try different poses and move your camera around until you get a shot you like.
