Korean tech mogul, Samsung, has released another mid-ranged smart phone called the Samsung Transform, which proceeds the Samsung Moment and the Samsung Intercept. It was released almost two months ago for the mid range price of $150 once users sent in a mail in rebate, and it has gained a small following among bloggers and real life users who have been impressed with the features it includes for its price, such as a tactile QWERTY keyboard in addition to the digital touch screen keyboard, an LED flash and both front and rear facing cameras, and 3.5 inch touch screen. The Samsung Transform has also garnered a small amount of interest as a potential gaming device, although it is not comparable to a dedicated device for gaming such as a Nintendo DS or Sony PSP. Nonetheless, it is possible to do some light gaming with the Samsung Transform, and this will be discussed in this article, along with information about some of the Samsung Transform accessories you can purchase.
One of the best ways to play games on the Samsung Transform is to purchase a Nesoid, which is a Nintendo NES emulator. This will allow you to play NES roms, or original NES games directly on your Android. This means you have Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Mario, and similar games at the tip of your fingers once you download them. Its fun, it’s easy, and it’s retro. What’s not to like?
The first of the two accessories, an extra battery, is really useful when you’re planning on going out on a long day without having access to any place to plug in a charger to an outlet or a car charger in your vehicle. While the Samsung Transform already comes with a decent amount of battery life, it is still a smart phone, and like any other smart phone, whenever you use it for more than its basic phone capabilities, you will significantly decrease the battery life. To top it off, almost every smart phone on the market these days comes with a bright and large touch screen that is typically at least 3.5 inches across diagonally, and the Samsung Transform is no exception.
Such a large screen inevitably drains battery life, and if you don’t have a charger or an extra Samsung Transform battery handy, you can easily run out of juice just when you need it most, which is the fastest way to render even the most useful smart phone useless. Fortunately, such damage is preventable, and if you buy an extra battery, you won’t have to worry nearly as much about this happening to you.
The second accessory, a Samsung Transform holster, might sound like a simplistic addition that you can live without, but it is actually a useful addition that you should consider if you’re planning on buying a Samsung Transform. This is because the Transform doesn’t come with any way of attaching itself to your body directly through the phone; you basically stick it in your pocket and go on your way. Although this may be enough for most people, some of the more traditional users (And you probably are if you are interested in a phone that includes a tactile keyboard), you will probably appreciate having the ability to attach your phone to your person, which is exactly what a holster lets you do.
