ySiG Student Edition - Join and Stand A Chance to Win a Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2!
 

We’re past mid 2012 and we’re certain that students are now in full swing doing research, catching up with deadlines, and spending time with their friends and classmates. Today, in the digital age where virtually everything is fast-paced and dynamic, students must always be hooked up to the Internet to keep them enriched with relevant information and connected to their social networks on Facebook or Twitter.

One of the best ways to do these is through an Android device. However, many students are still reluctant of getting one because of the impression that they are too complicated.

Positively, with an aim to make technology more accessible to everyone, Samsung has come up with a fun, easy-to-use Android-based handheld device that would fit students’ needs – the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2!

A timely offering for students, the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 allows users to connect to the Internet, be entertained with its multimedia capabilities, meet people and share ideas through social media.

Shown in the photo is the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2. Based on the images alone, as a student, what do you expect from it?


ferdinand_dti 19-07-2012 11:54 AM

I was student more than 10 years ago but still a student at heart today. I still love music very much which accompanied me during the long hours of puyatan while doing my college thesis. A quick look at the photo, with the rewind, pause and fast forward buttons visible makes me remember my old cassette tape player. So this makes me expect that Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2, will give me a hi-tech experience in entertainment, among others.

mrbrightside288 19-07-2012 11:56 AM

as a student, I would expect a fast wireless connection in order for me to browse for information I need, and also a clear and smooth display for viewing document files. :)

arlene___ 19-07-2012 12:33 PM

With all the slideshows presented to us in all our classes, I have to find a way to make sure that I can easily access them whenever I need them. Sure, a laptop can be used to view all the documents and references I need for my studies; but with a hectic schedule, running around campus lugging around a 6.8 pound laptop isn't really practical, and it isn't worth straining my back for it. With the new Samsung Galaxy S and it's 4.2 inch wide screen, viewing all my slideshows for all my classes will be a breeze.

Apart from the widescreen, its media player can be a very helpful tool for me spends weekends travelling from Los Banos to Rizal. My weekly 6 hour ride to and From Los Banos to my home can be a lot less straining when I have 8 gB worth of entertainment at my fingertips.

makz24 19-07-2012 04:20 PM

As a student, I expect the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 to be amazingly fast and have a very good sound quality. Also, This is the first Android device that will compete with the iPod Touch, so we can expect it to be very good.

ronjames 19-07-2012 04:39 PM

As an Engineering student, I expect the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 to be an all around device.

A device where I can do research for my thesis,
A device where I can create/edit documents for my thesis and assignments,
A device that I can use to connect with my thesis group mates and classmates via social network,
A device where I can install applications that are helpful for my studies,
A device that can capture clear pictures/videos of my thesis project,
A device where I can play games to relieve me from the stress of school work,
A device that can play my favorite music when I'm relaxing or even when I'm doing my project.

To conclude all that I've mentioned, I expect the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 to be my mini-tablet pc for a number of years, in case I'm the lucky one to win it. :)

cathy_jhoy 19-07-2012 04:56 PM

me!
 
:) as a student I'm trying my best to finish college with prayers. I'm not expecting BUT I'm praying and hoping that I will win the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2. It will help me to research and communicate with my friends easily. Samsung is one of my favorite and trusted brand when it comes to gadgets.

What I except of course mainly would be a fast and reliable Wi-Fi capability especially for me as a fourth year engineering student, too many word and pdf files are to be reviewed and/or used as reference materials. Along with this connectivity would be the battery life, I expect that it would last long even on continuous use of its Wi-Fi.

An included feature expected is a good music player, having easy to use interface, spacious internal memory and of course high quality audio output for musical satisfaction. This again needs a high capacity battery able to handle the said above features.

Being an android phone, I also expect its interface to be an ease in usage. Along with a good quality camera, this will be used in taking pictures of other school related shots for thesis and other projects.

dtruthseeker 20-07-2012 10:49 AM

As a soon-to-be young professional, I expect it to help me find ways to become a responsible student at the same time enjoy studying even when it seems so uneasy. No more running to the internet cafe whenever there are paper works to catch up with, and no more boredom moments while waiting for my next subjects. As a student, I expect it to would be a great phone to meet my daily requirements, entertainment and much fun!

marjhen 20-07-2012 11:06 AM

domz457 20-07-2012 04:35 PM

As a student, I need to use anything at my disposal.. every time... I need my tech stuff to handle the stress it I throw at it.. Samsung's known for making great tv's. From the S2 to the new S3 I'm sure of it that they didn't let the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 be left out.

darkside24 21-07-2012 12:06 AM

As a student with a very limited budget for things that aren't very essential, the very first thing that pops in my mind - PRICE. No matter how good the smartphone gets, if it's not within my budget allocated for purchasing one, then I would rather not buy it or maybe I can save up more to be able to purchase this in the near future (hopefully when prices have adjusted for it to be cheaper) if I really find the phone worthy of my hard-earned savings.

Second, I expect its features to keep me sane out of all the stress that my school workload grants me. I expect it to be a phone that would help be my companion in my academic requirements as I go along this school year. I want it to be a MULTI-FUNCTIONAL phone. Multi-functional in the sense that:

[1] It would help me do some of my research, communication with my friends, have a long battery life in preparation of these sleepless nights and instances when there'll be sudden power outages and a large memory space available so that I will be able to put images, documents and other files so that I will be able to access them whenever wherever I am.
[2] It would keep me entertained in times I need a break from doing school related activities. I expect it to be able to support a lot of games because I really love to play games, have a good quality and clear sounds for FM radio and music, have a decent camera that would help me capture those unforgettable moments and for it to be very responsive so that there will be no game lags and I can surf the net quickly

That's some of the things that I expect this smartphone to have because as a student, I will have to rely all my tech-related activities on a single unit. I want to have a phone that can almost do ALL so that no matter where I go, I can deliver and finish my tasks and be able to relax afterwards.

littlelion 23-07-2012 09:13 PM

Thank you for posting your responses. Before we proceed, we want to clarify that the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 does not have phone capabilities like calling and texting, hence, it is not a smartphone. :)

We saw that some of you mentioned about Android applications that can be used when studying. Can you mention some?

ronjames 23-07-2012 11:43 PM

ElectroDroid is a great example of an Android application that I can use for studying almost everything about electronic components. From resistor color coding to circuit calculation. This app gets the job done!

Another one is EveryCircuit. This Android application is very helpful, you can make a schematic design of your circuit and simulate it by just using your finger. How cool is that?

arlene___ 25-07-2012 09:01 AM

I can use the grapher app as a reference when I need review or reacquaint myself of the various graphs of the mathematical functions I usually encounter in calculus class. I can also use the Adobe Reader app to view all the pdf files my professor has given to us as reference materials for our studies. Camscanner is also a very useful app. I can use it by taking pictures of documents and turning them into PDF files for easy viewing! I won't have to take out the book out of the library, especially, when I only need a 2 - 3 pages of information from it. Lastly, the studious app can easily help me schedule all my studying, homeworks and extra-curricular activities everyday so I won't have to forget any of my responsibilities. This is a very helpful app especially for a student who is forgetful as I am.

Speaking of games, can you name some of the mobile games that you would play, if you win a Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 4.2?

ronjames 26-07-2012 09:04 PM

Of course, when we talk about games, Tetris, Sudoku and Bejeweled Blitz will be on my list because I like games that exercise my brain.

Aside from mind games, any racing game like Need for Speed will do.

ergeon93 27-07-2012 09:43 PM

As a student i would expect...
 
I would expect so much from the Galaxy S, with the possibilities in just one device, i could do so much. We can all say that we are now in a post-pc generation, wherein developments and innovations in technology brought us portable media, research, communications and other activities which in fact can fit in devices. We pretty much rely now with such devices as information can go as anywhere and can be found anywhere. But still yes, valuable information and research can be done with or without them, it is just so easy and a breeze when we use them. As a student, i would work of course with my books and other documents, but with such devices more information can be obtained, FASTER. So what do i really expect with the Galaxy S WiFi? Simple. From research and work related tasks to communications and social networking to entertainment. It should have or can do such. The way we communicate nowadays, no longer required a cellular telecommunications sim, what we all need is a connection and an app which can do communicating to others. With that, phone-capabilities are slightly compensated.

Planning and organizing my everyday schedule, being a working student is very critical. Most of time, I feel being overwhelmed with the entire task that I have to do. Changing and modifying the nature of each responsibility is more often than not hardly possible. Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2, “based on the image alone”, delivers a manifestation of becoming stylish for the student while providing a strike of balance of becoming a professional for those who are also working. Its physical dimension which is relatively not excessively large and as well as not too small will clearly make an available precise view of files and documents ready for review without having both hands occupied at the same time. Its connectivity features transport a great contribution and aids to all of my research work, projects and assignments. Additionally, this lightweight electronic device aspects like an A-listing of all indispensable applications such as ThinkFree Office and Schedule Planner APP that can help me arrange and not only to finish tasks, but more importantly to complete all of my obligations on or before hitting the deadlines. Hence, it’s freeing my timetable, reducing wasted time and allowing me to have the luxury of leisure time, while listening to music, or maybe browsing all of my accounts from various social media network. So what’s in it for me? As a student I’m supposing that by having Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 this will differentiate myself from others by having an enormous advantage on effective time planning and goal setting, while reducing stress, achieving balance in my life, becoming more productive and more importantly reaching my objectives.

Fruit Ninja is a simple game yet it is an effective stress reducing application so i will definitely put that into consideration and install it in case I would be the lucky one.

We saw that some of you mentioned about Android applications that can be used when studying. Can you mention some?

First in the list is Aldiko! Since most phones only have trial versions of PDF viewers et. al. I recommend Aldiko since it's free, it lets you open PDF, spreadsheets, documents and eBooks. It also allows you to go to a page number so technically no hassle to scroll down the page manually especially if you need to read something on page 564. The interface is really nice as well and it motivates you to organize your stuff since it really is like a library.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary, which is a free app, gives me the meaning of the highfalutin words I encounter while reading Business Law and finance/accounting/economic journals. A good and reliable dictionary will really help you succeed and you'll get to understand more your readings.

DroidScan meanwhile takes a picture of the print readings and saves them as PDFs which you can immediately upload online. Helpful if there is no available photocopier nearby.

Basically, that's some of the apps :)

INOTIA If you really love RPG games like Ragnarok then this one is your best bet. The story line of the game is really nice and it's as if you're really playing some game on a computer because there are quests, tasks for finding items, killing a boss, etc. You also get to pick what kind of class your character will be (Barbarian, Templar, Rogue, Shadow Hunter, Arc Mage, and Priest for Inotia 3)! You're also given skill points and stat points to learn new attacks/techniques and upgrade your stats. There is also a party where you can have 2 companions with you! This game is really like a computer game and you can download it for FREE

I would also like to play Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja because I'm pretty sure these games would run smoothly and won't have lags since this phone has high specs :)

littlelion 31-07-2012 10:46 PM

What is your reaction to the idea that devices like the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 can hinder, rather than help you in your studies?

ronjames 31-07-2012 11:41 PM

It's up on the student if he/she will use a device like Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2 for his/her studies. The chance of getting hindered will depend on how the student will use this device, for ex: a student can load it up with a ton of games rather than helpful applications.

But for me, as a college student, I know to prioritize the things for my studies in order for me to graduate.

littlelion 03-08-2012 06:28 PM

The Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi S 4.2 is a great portable entertainment device where you can play movies. What movie/s do you think would look great on this Android?

ronjames 03-08-2012 09:24 PM

I can say that all movies would look great on the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2, whether its an old movie or a new movie.

I think my favorite movie: James Cameron's Avatar would look awesome on this device, and also all of the American Pie Movies.

Plus add to the list is the upcoming movie: Bourne Legacy.

I think it's wrong because the people saying that are trying to speak for the whole public and I disagree with them because any device can hinder or improve an individual's performance (i.e. academics, work etc.).

It all boils down to how disciplined a person is - knowing when to use Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2, as a tool for enhancing one's academic performance for studying and researching & at the same time, as a means of entertainment for relaxation purposes in which one could actually use after studying or during one's free time, for his benefit and not at his expense.

Students just need to learn how to set their priorities.

Based on the image alone, as a student I am expecting that:
1) It would be really lovely to play around and do some students’ stuffs with a 4.2 inch screen running on user friendly Android 2.3(Gingerbread).
2) I can capture precious moment at my school, lectures or notes on the white board (ahaha), and even have a picture with my professors by using its front camera.
3) It can make me feel so relax and comfortable by listening to music while doing some home works and some problem solving.
4) I could enjoy watching movies with this lovely gadget after my major examinations or even have videos that are related to some of my subjects as a reviewer.
5) I could access a big and broad library of knowledge by using its internet and applications that could really be a big help with my dreams and my studies.
“Galaxy means any of numerous large-scale aggregates of stars, gas, and dust that constitute the universe”
I am expecting to have a galaxy of knowledge, wisdom, and happiness with Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2.

Such a great thing to have this app.

The Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.2, knowing its portability and multi-functioning feature, suggests a great benefit into promoting and enhancing a convenient life-style. Getting the fine-grasp of how to maximize its usage by determining its feature’s mechanics will simplify any task at hand. Considering Samsung Galaxy Wifi 4.2 as a “hindrance” would manifests “only” if and when there is inadequate knowledge required to reach the gadget’s best possible performance. Having a predefine purpose (schooling purpose) for the device will leverage on how it serves its usage. Without any doubt, as a student who has identified how Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.2 will be suitable for my way of life, everything, by all means, will work towards my advantage.

Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.2 offers a modest screen to enjoy watching movies and if I would be lucky enough to own this device, some of the movies to consider first in the list are the following: Avengers, Iron Man 1 & 2, Thor, and The Amazing Spiderman. I think they would be great choice of movies to play with this device as they have good graphics which will also enable me to test it on how it behaves in terms of playing a motion picture and as well as the sound.

Low-bat”? Advanced Task Killer and Juice Defender will be the answer for that. These applications are useful to extend battery life. ;)

What I mean by saying that is that you actually reduce the up time of the device if you're planning to watch movies there most of the time.

Such a great thing to have this app.

Sorry to actually burst your bubble, but if you're just putting the scientific calculator app (as this was the only app you rendered here) in the device, I don't think it will be very effective at all. Personally, I sometimes use the calculator installed at my friend's android phone and I must say that it just makes the process longer, kasi you have to press precisely on the screen etc.

I think that using a real scientific calculator would really make your life easier because you really have these buttons to press and "feel" and you would know if you'd press the buttons already, as suppose to using a calculator on a touch screen wherein you really have to look at the display to know if the stimuli was recorded.

Well there are some instances of course that using a calculator app would be beneficial, such as using it for graphing and all the other 3D models. To sum it up, I don't think that solely installing a calculator app on the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-fi 4.2 would be beneficial as we're not maximizing the capabilities that this device can do.

Basically, it's just my two cents. Maybe you can add more apps that you'd like to actually put?

Well, these apps would only help if you're not that knowledgeable as you can't pinpoint the certain settings that if left running or staying in that condition would lead towards a battery life that is less than the usual.

I would just like to reiterate my point and that is watching so many movies (like what most of you would probably do once you have that device) would drain the battery life faster.

I can feel you mate, I still want to use my scical rather than other gadget but all that Im pointing out here is that it is an Android application that can be used when studying.

And one more thing, yeah solely installing a calculator app on this baby would not be that beneficial but we are not talking about how or what more, just talking about the app that could be useful for a student.

Such a great thing to have this app.

Personally, I sometimes use the calculator installed at my friend's android phone and I must say that it just makes the process longer, kasi you have to press precisely on the screen etc.

I think that using a real scientific calculator would really make your life easier because you really have these buttons to press and "feel" and you would know if you'd press the buttons already, as suppose to using a calculator on a touch screen wherein you really have to look at the display to know if the stimuli was recorded.

Well there are some instances of course that using a calculator app would be beneficial, such as using it for graphing and all the other 3D models. To sum it up, I don't think that solely installing a calculator app on the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-fi 4.2 would be beneficial as we're not maximizing the capabilities that this device can do.

I think with sizable screen, pressing it precisely is definitely not going to be problem and also, application responsiveness really depends on the gpu and the processor. With this Samsung Galaxy S wifi 4.2, I think it can be used with ease.
The real problem that I see here is most of the professor won’t allow you to use any gadget/device other than a scientific calculator during class, especially in examination. Like my professor in math, for example. Nevertheless, this app is really one to consider because it is better to always have something in handy…

I would just like to reiterate my point and that is watching so many movies (like what most of you would probably do once you have that device) would drain the battery life faster.



Advanced Task Killer” can certainly do that, it has this capability of listing down unessential apps which are running in the back-round, and kill them, not to mention that you also have the option of choosing them.

This app is very useful as some of the apps stay running in the back-round even if you've already closed them.

Enabling this app reduces the battery consumption and aids your android like the Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.2 to become faster which means that you can enjoy watching movie while this marvelous app is doing its job. ;)

Since it has a 4.2 inch screen I would go with movies that does not have many effects like reel steel and lord of the rings trilogy.

I agree with most of their answers that it really depends on who's using it and from the quote:

"With great power, comes with great responsibility"

therefore in my personal opinion......

"With great gadget, comes with great responsibility and discipline".

Ultimately, it is up to the student how he/she can maximize the features of the the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2. In my case, I'd love to use to for studying as well as relaxing after a grueling day at school. :)

We got some images that we took using the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2. Any thoughts on the device's imaging capability?
