I have this really bad, insatiable tech envy. I have a constant desire to upgrade my gadgets and devices, and whenever I see friends or family members with new toys, I really do get jealous. It’s a mildly dangerous and really expensive personal issue, but there have been times when I got lucky with promotions and discounts, and that made things kinda better. Kinda.
Thing is, over the past few weeks I’ve been ranting about how the phone I’m using for Instagram, a hand-me-down Samsung Galaxy Y (or Galaxy Why, as MrC calls it), is slowly but surely dying. Grrr. It’s so frustrating because my main phone is actually a BlackBerry, and well, there’s no Instagram for BlackBerry, as you know. So I’ve been making do with the dying phone. Can’t complain since I got it for free, technically, but well, it wouldn’t hurt if it had a better camera right? And, of course, if it wasn’t on the brink of conking out.
I know that a new phone shouldn’t be a priority for me right now. It’s one of those needs vs wants things. And then, just when I was starting to feel hopeless, I saw this.
Now the question is, do I go for it? I honestly don’t know yet. But if any of you have been eyeing a nice new gadget, you may want to check out Lazada’s Ultimate Gadget Craze. The Great Samsung Sale is just one part of this campaign, where you can get discounts of up to Php3,500 plus cool freebies along with your purchase. Wow, right?
