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


We hope you enjoyed these stunning pictures of NZ, and that it has inspired some of you to come and visit!
