Fine day, everyone~

Ms Aya the sheep is going to give you her review on the BlackBerry Bold 9780~!

Do know, this is my first time using a BlackBerry phone so I may not be entirely familiar with it and might make incorrect statements along the way.

At the bottom of this entry, there’s a link to a much professional and reliable review regarding the phone therefore, please bear with my casual way of reviewing for the time being? <^-^>


In this review, I’ll be covering the following:

  1. Phone specifications
  2. Phone Exterior
  3. Interaction with the phone
  4. BlackBerry Messenger
  5. Camera and Video Quality
  6. Others (Phone audio, battery life…)
  7. Wi-Fi and BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)

I’m about to blog a review on the Canon Digital Ixus 130 (14.1 megapixels, HD video recording) but beforehand, do note that this review is coming from an average person who knows nothing about ISO, optical lens, light metering and such jargon, one who just wants a good user-friendly digital camera that takes beautiful pictures!

The few points I’ll be stressing on would be:

  • Exterior appearance
  • Display quality
  • Navigation
  • Features
  • Photo and video quality

Without further ado, let’s begin with the first aspect: ↓

Exterior Appearance

If you have been one who always held on to large, brick-like gadgets, you’d find the Canon Ixus 130 to be very slim, compact and fitting to the palm. The measurements are:

Horizontal length: 9cm
Vertical length: 5.5cm
Thickness: 1.5cm

However its built is rather flat so getting a good grip by the side might prove difficult for big hands.

(Laughs nervously)

Sheep is about to dedicate a review to her favorite game, Joker no Kuni no Alice~

It is a visual novel game that requires clicking the mouse most of the time. Indeed, a lazy girl’s game. (Laughs)

I don’t think many of you know this game so to whom it may concern, dozo~


Ratings for this game: PG13, very mild romance, no nudity, foul words are bleeped and just lots of lemony love.

Language: Japanese

There are no motion pictures for this visual game, note that down please. <^-^>lll

When I first got my Samsung Star, I couldn’t figure a way to activate the Wi-Fi for my Opera Mini.

Although I don’t quite mind the default browser, for some websites I prefer to get a compact and concise view which loads faster.

Anyway, I finally figured out how to connect my Opera Mini using the Wi-Fi!

Took me a bloody long time to figure this out. <x__x>

So those who would like to use their Opera Mini on Wi-Fi with their Samsung Star, here’s how. ↓

Your Opera Mini should be kept under the ‘Games and More’ folder so go there…

…and tap on ‘More’ and then ‘Connections’.

Here, you can choose the network of your choice. If you have never meddled with the settings here, probably by default, Opera Mini uses your service provider as the primary network to gain access to the Internet thus credit deduction.

Note that you don’t have to switch on your Wi-Fi. Just go to ‘Connections‘ and select your choice of network. However, do save the network before anything else.

Samsung Star is unlike Nokia phones (and probably other phones) whereby it will ask you permission whether you want to use connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi.

You have to set it first before opening Opera Mini.

I’m guessing that every application under the ‘Games and More’ folder will use the same chosen network.

Now once you are done choosing your network, open Opera Mini.

Let’s say, I want to go to Twitter…

After tapping on the link, this will appear. ↑

Select “Allow, ask once.”

If you have not set for Wi-Fi connection, then you have agreed to the chargeable cost of air time in order to surf the net.

However, setting it to Wi-Fi connection will not deduct your phone credit. Suppose you are unsure whether you are connected using Wi-Fi, click the ‘End Call’ button to check. You will see the Wi-Fi icon has been activated. ↓

See? Well, I can be very forgetful sometimes and forget to set the right profile so I have the tendency to keep checking. It would suck to find out a sum of credit gone, just like that. Sheep is paranoid, ne? (Laughs)

After that, here you go!

Feel free to surf on Opera Mini~ <^v^>/

By the way, if you normally use Samsung Star’s default browser to check your HOTMAIL, I suggest you go to their Mobile site instead of the full site.

Hotmail’s mobile site:

Checking your e-mail using the full site with your Samsung Star…can spit blood. <x__x>

Well, it’s up to you~♥ <^ω^>

Hope this guide is useful for you Samsung Star users~~♥ <^v^>/

PS: Expect your Samsung Star to restart when you are surfing websites with heavy content. <T_T>lll
