Samsung i8910 Omnia HD 8GB Sim Free Unlocked Mobile Phone
As of writing I have got to say that this is probably the best phone in the world right now! It's completely full of features and right now there is no phone that can compete with it in terms of specs. I could talk all day about this phone but there are other reviews out there so I will keep it short and sweet. I bought this with a contract from orange and this is one of the best purchases I have ever made! I wanted a multimedia phone that could do just about everything so that I would not need to carry around multiple devices. Well this phone has well surpassed those requirements. Basically it's a phone, HD Camera, portable video player, mp3 player and FM radio in one which is pretty much what I was looking for but it also has GPS and many other cool features that will keep you busy all day! I have the 8GB version and this phone supports up to 32GB SDHC right now which I plan on using for music and videos as well as other things which makes this phone perfect for my needs.
One last thing I want to talk about is the full screen qwerty keyboard. I admit I had my doubts about touch screen keyboards in fact I was considering the Nokia N97 for its slide out keyboard. Well after using it my fears are COMPLETELY gone it's amazing and so responsive and fast to type on. I had a race with my bro who was using the standard alphanumeric keypad on his phone to see who could type a message faster and WOW I can't believe how fast it is compared to a alphanumeric keypad it makes it look dated it took him three times the time to type the message! I HIGHLY recommend you buy this phone if you want the best you have just found it :)
Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 Noise Isolating Headphones
These earphones are actually pretty good I was sceptical at first considering that I had heard of some people saying that it lacks in bass however after using them my doubts are now gone! They have a quite a lot of bass maybe not as much as the Shure SE310 which I previously owned before they completely lost all their sound after just 10 months but anyway those cost almost four times as much as these ultimate Ears so I guess I can't complain. The sound quality that comes out is very good and clear and I was surprised at the quality of them they are not as good as the Shures I owned but you can't tell the difference in most songs and one advantage that they have over the Shures I previously owned is that they are so much easier to insert into your ears and get a comfortable fit. With the Shures I had to keep re-adjusting so that they would fit properly. Any way they do their job when it comes to sound isolation you can barely hear anything outside but they do allow you to hear some ambience noise so you're not walking around deaf and unaware of what is going on in the world around you.
I've managed to get a good fit with the Silicone ear-cushions however I have realised that it does start to hurt a little after long term use but hopefully as my ears get used to them this should not be a problem. The wires are designed so that they don't get tangled and I have to say that I've had no problems with them so far. As for the carry case its plastic and has a kind of cheap weak looking latch that looks like it will break with constant use I have heard of that happening with another user but I should have no worries as I intend on using the carry case that came with my previous Shure SE310 earphones which is of a much higher quality and has a zip close. So if you're looking for a good pair of earphones for under 100 these are a very good buy I highly recommend.
