In today’s post, we're bringing you on a virtual trip around New Zealand!

New Zealand is well known for its beautiful landscapes. There are many diverse biospheres in the country, from stunning beaches to amazing mountains and lakes.

With lots of different travel hotspots in NZ, some of our New Zealand Samsung Makers have contributed photos of their travels around this beautiful country. Let's take a look!


Auckland  (Sharing from @Casem)


Auckland is the largest city in NZ, with a population of around 1.5 million people.

Pictured is the Skytower, Auckland’s tallest landmark/building.

Wellington is the Capital city of New Zealand. Known for being the “Culture Capital” or “Windy Wellington”, this is where the NZ Government and parliament buildings are located.

Personal travel tips from our community manager @Samsung_Ruby:

  • Travelling around NZ? Make sure you have an extra layer with you as the weather can change quickly. We often experience all 4 seasons in one day, rain, sun, hot & cold!
  • Is your phone low on battery from all the travel photos/videos you have been taking? With the Wireless PowerShare feature, you can grab some battery power from your friend’s Galaxy phone! All you need to do is place the two devices together.

Make sure that the phone with Powershare is charged to at least 30%. Place the Powershare phone and a compatible device back to back. To stop the charging, separate the devices from each other. You can also charge your Galaxy phone while it is charging another device; simply connect the charging cable while using PowerShare.

Most Qi-Compatible Samsung devices can be charged with Wireless PowerShare. More information here! How to share battery power between your devices | Samsung Singapore
