Finally I have had it in my hands for more than about a week.
I have to say, it is a very impressive device.
Michael Kwadade-Cudjoe of Tech support at Samsung, Baba Musah Al-Hassan who is a Key Account Manager and Master Trainer and also Jemima Stewart Codjoe, another Key Account Manager and Trainer joined me to answer some questions regarding the device.
My verdict after the using the device for a week however is as follows:
This is the best device battery I have seen on a mobile phone. It is not for everyone. If you are a power user, you are on the road a lot, you need a lot storage (not just for pictures)… this is your phone. Also if you want a one device and nothing else, this is it. Any mobile device that gives you 1TB of storage space is worth holding on to. Bixby is trying hard but has a long way to go. Security works if you use the traditional options, there is work to be done on the iris scanner and face detection. The camera offers a lot of options but there is little difference between that and the Galaxy S9. With this phone you have a very powerful all round device with amazing storage capacity and and a great build.
My guest this week checks all the boxes and even more.
Jorge Appiah, CEO of Kumasi Hive and Executive Chairman for Ghana Tech Hubs Network.
His main argument is that there is a far greater threat to the development of the tech ecosystem in Ghana than money or any other issues. He argues that competent skills are missing and the sooner we addressed the gap, the better.
My love for food is the soul behind this week’s show.
The questions behind who is producing our food for us, how they are finding the land to farm in 2018 where every available piece of land is being built upon, how farmers get the land and so one need answers.
The issues of tools for working, the cash, markets access, the technology and so many others need to be addressed
A Nigerian man who loves good food and was named 2017 Tech Startup CEO of the Year at the Nigeria Technology Awards, Onyeka Akumah, CEO of Farmcrowdy, was my guest.
