Weekend Review: Samsung Bottle
A couple of our blogger’s went on down to Samsung’s Experience Store in Sydney to check things out. They saw the Galaxy Note 10.1 and other exciting devices, however, they happened to win one of Samsung’s distinguished metal bottles. While the store itself is quite exciting, we just couldn’t go past this bottle – and what a bottle it is!
I asked both bloggers on the floor, Greg and Norman, to have a look at the bottle in-depth and write up their thoughts.
Read on for the full take of Samsung’s distinguished bottle – I just hope Apple/Mount Franklin doesn’t press charges for water storage patents.
The build quality of the water bottle is excellent – it’s all metal interior, with a soft-touch exterior that I wouldn’t mind on a mid-range phone.
The Samsung water bottle features a metal construction, a soft-touch exterior, 500mL of liquid capacity, and a polycarbonate spout that will put up with countless hours of human abuse. It also features a convenient carry handle, and comes in a striking blue, ergonomic design.
“Samsung. We spend more R&D on materials for free merchandise than we do for our main products. There you go, there’s the bottle review.”
From Greg’s end
It lacks any tortional strength whatsoever! I was able to twist it a worrying amount. The exterior feels very plasticky and the fact that there are so many panels/bezels etc means that there are more joints to break off and fall apart.
Update: It appears as though we’ve had a little mix-up; Greg’s mini-review was actually of the Note 10.1 and not the Samsung Bottle. Apologies for any harm caused. From the Sydney-sider’s mouth – “The bottle is perfect.”
If only Melbourne’s Experience Store also had the same features, maybe my trip would have been more eventful. But, you know what – at least I found out that the 4G LTE Galaxy S III is coming to Australia.
Oh, and, unfortunately it’s not running Android.
