Update (4 DEC 2014) : Samsung Experience Store Trincity Mall and Samsung Experience Store West Mall were opened today.
Samsung in partnership with bMobile today opened the first Experience Store at Gulf City Mall, San Fernando. My hope is that this store has the devices cheaper than elsewhere and unlocked and they offer good warranties and repairs and that they open more stores across the country. It’s nice to be able play with a device before you purchase. I would like to think that this type of store means greater competition and more value for the customer. Travelling to Gulf City was part of the fun for me. I took the coach bus to Sando and then short drop with a Pt. Fortin maxi. Coincidentally I was up early like a zombie. My experience with Samsung has been good so far. The S4 is going strong. If I had to upgrade my laptop I would go for the Ativ Book 9 Plus. All this Samsung talk making me feel like I should be a Chelsea fan. No way. Manchester City to the bones. Below is a nice photo story of how the launch went down and please share your thoughts in the comments below.
