Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Review

First of all, before I steal you more time, I want to point out what you'll find in this post:

- a brief description about the device.
- the best apps in my opinion (with my unbiased thoughts, obviously, I am not being paid by anyone for making this post)
- some tips and tricks that I find interesting.

I hope you find this helpful. I am not an expert in technology or something, I am interested in writing a detailed review post because before buying this phone I only found the prototypical review (and unboxing post) with the same technical details in each case.
I won't post an unboxing post because there's plenty of them on the internet and I wanted to have the phone for at least a couple of weeks to see how does it work, what apps do I like, etc. and make a more detailed and complete review.



Description
The phone is quite big (144.8 mm x 72.1 mm) and the interesting thing is, that although it has a very good size, it doesn't get uncomfortable when it comes to typing on it, as it happens with other devices such as the "Samsung Galaxy Note(s)".
It has two cameras. The front camera is quite nice. It has a 5mpx camera to make selfies and a really funny effect to make yourself more beautiful, although if you overuse it, you end up looking like an alien. The "main" camera has 8mpx which is great! maybe the picture definition is not really different from my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S Advance) which has a 5 Mpx camera, but it certainly catches the light and colours in a better way.
The design is quite nice, although the surface seems a very cheap plastic, but I like the fact that mine is not white or black, but dark grey.




Apps
My favourite apps are:
1. TEMPLE RUN 
I love this game! It runs amazingly in this phone. And I love that now it comes with a new scene with snow and a different "monster".

2. DITTY
With this app you can create songs based on a music template such as "hallelujah" and "jingle bells" but you write the lyrics!
3. CCLEANER
By far the app for phone cleaning that has worked the best for me. It works as great as it works on the PC. I had installed CleanMaster in my old phone but actually it made it slower than it already was.
4. MUSIC MAKER JAM
With this app you can create music. Of course, it is not as complex as professional music makers are, but if you do that as a hobby, it is ok.


5. MOOVIT 
This apps helps you to calculate the time the next bus will take to arrive (among other things).
6. ONCE 
The best period tracker in my opinion.

Tips & Tricks
By far, the best thing about this phone, in my humble opinion, is the "ultra power saving mode". I can't show you a snapshot to illustrate this feature, maybe because it consumes energy, I guess. But it limits your phone to the most basic needs you may have. It turns off the wifi, reduces the screen brightness, and it stops showing your wallpaper, among other things, so as to make the battery last longer. For example, with the saving mode, 53% could last for almost 8 days. That's such a great amount of time for a cell phone to stay alive haha.

Weekly Stuff

I don't have the habit to take a picture of everything I do, but last week I took my camera and captured some things I've been doing. I think it's a nice way to have things under control and to remember the things you do.


I have organised my baby's wardrobe, I love decluttering, I think it's a therapy for me, maybe a lot of you may feel the same...



I know I'm not the most organized person when it comes to study, but that doesn't count when you are writing down the answers in the exam, so who cares!? ahhahah



Enjoying the Spring's sunny days outside.


And the best thing comes at the end... my lady girl living her last days as an 11 months old! She will turn 1 year old next friday :3

What do you thinkg about taking pictures?

December Wishlist

It's nine days since December started and Christmas is nearer and nearer. And traditionally, we are preparing to give and receive presents, so we're all looking in the local shops to see if we find by chance the perfect gift for our beloved ones, or... the gifts we want to receive.
In my case, I will show today my wishlist for this month, in which I include my favourite items from an online store I've been loving and which is called Dresslink.

As you may know, here in South America the Christmas season is not as it is in the movies, we don't have snow. Instead, we are in summer and temperatures can be really high here (it's not the case this year, fortunately). But, although I am not wearing warm clothes, I can't help thinking about a warm sweater, a cup of coffee and Christmas movies, so I picked some garments perfect for cold weather.



1. Hooded cape poncho style
2. Geometry design printed sweater
3. Faux leather  bodycon midi pencil skirt
4. Casual round neck plaid dress

I have also picked some accesories and shoes I found at an INCREDIBLE PRICE (yes, I'm serious about this)

1. Click here to purchase these snow boots (in many colours) for $0.99!
2. Click here to get these black boots for only $5.19!
3. Click here  to get any of the Harry Potter's houses scarf! for only $4.09
4. Click here to get this cool bag only for $3.69!

I hope you have enjoyed this wishlist and I kindly invite you all to click on the items and take a closer look to these cheap and great quality products Dresslink has to offer.

Comment down below which was your favourite item from my wishlist or go to the DRESSLINK page and choose the item you liked the most!

Hope you have a lovely thursday, as I do. See you in my next post.

Landybridal: to design you better days

Dear followers and readers, 
As I love to share my favourite online shops/sites with you, I am sharing a so cool online store which cool Wedding Dresses: landybridal

As the slogan stands, "to design you better days", this website offers dresses varying in colour, size, shape, texture, style, etc. And you can tell by looking at the well-organized categories in which the dresses are divided. 

The nicest thing about landybridal is that they adapt to every lady's taste. For example, there may be those women who want their wedding to be something vintage, and they may want to dress according to the wedding's style. These ladies will go straight to this wonderful looking section of vintage lace wedding dresses. On the other hand, if you are of those who are always updated with the last trends and fashionable clothing, you may be one of those who will go straightforward to the wedding dresses 2016.

I personally don't follow trends and would love to buy a vintage dress, but as I said. It doesn't matter how unique or particular your taste might be, Landybridal has a choice for every bride.
