AT&T x The Urban Gentleman Holiday Giveaway

12 Days of Giving #ATTGiftSweeps

We’ve teamed up with AT&T to bring Urban Gentleman readers our first 2015 holiday giveaway #TUGiveaways… a brand spankin’ new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Yea bruh… only the best for our loyal TUG fans. AT&T is running a 12 Days of Giving campaign (started Monday) and we’re happy to be apart of it. 

To prepare for the giveaway I was able to experience the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, and overall it’s hands down one of the most beautiful phones on the market right now. The gold case, the beautiful screen spilling over like an infinity pool, vibrant colors… seriously, it’s nice.
I went snowboarding and skiing in February with a group of friends, one of which is an avid Samsung gadget collector. My friend sported both the Samsung Watch and the Edge. He was showboating a little,  but I had to go ahead and admit that the phone was gorgeous. I'm happy to be able to experience it, see The Urban Gentleman review below:
LOOKS: Beautiful… the Samsung Galaxy Edge is the infinity pool of phones – it's modern, luxurious, and attractive. The large 5.7 inch HD screen, vibrant color, and clarity are everything… it almost looks 3D. 
DURABILITY: I've found Samsung Galaxy's to be very durable in general– my S4 was dropped on several occasions and never cracked. The S6 Edge Plus suffered it's first drop this morning, face down on a granite floor — I'm happy to report it's still pristine. That said, I'm always sure to have a case and screen protector on my phone.

EDGE: The edge feature is the highlight of the phone, hence the name.  My first few days of having the phone I didn't really do much with it, besides admire it of course, lol… then I decided it was time to learn the Edge. With a few back and forth swipe motions you're able to view the time, your alarm, weather, and any notifications you have set up (texts, emails, etc). You're also able to have folder like tabs for your main contacts and apps. 
MORE STATS AND FEATURES: The battery changes super fast– fully charged in an hour, for the win! 4GB RAM Memory, Storage in 32GB or 64GB. 16megapixel camera. Mobile wallet – so you can keep your cards at home and just carry your phone. And of course, tons of apps.  
CHANGES: With all its beauty and perks it doesn't have a removable battery and SD card slot, which is a bit of a bummer. Buuuut that's been standard fair in the world of iPhones for years, so really its not the biggest deal.
Overall we're definitely fans of the edge. After visually swimming in an infinity pool, it'll be hard for my fingers to go back to the regular. Check out the AT&T/Samsung Holiday Gift Guide, here. 
Season of Giving

In the spirit of giving, I was asked to mention an item that I’ve re-gifted. That got me thinking… hmmm, I don’t think I’ve ever re-gifted something, but I’m not opposed to the idea. If the items is worth giving and you’re pretty sure the receiver will be happy then it’s a win. You’ve saved money, you’ve saved time and energy, you cleared up some space, and perhaps reduced your carbon footprint just a little. 

I have a new luxurious chocolate colored cashmere cardigan sweater I was given a couple years ago that’s just sitting in my closet… I think I’ll be re-gifting that this year. What’s your take on re-gifting? Have you ever done it and if so what?

How To Win the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus: Follow us on all social media, repost a link to this article, and comment below on re-gifting. Contest starts Monday, December 7th and will run until Monday, December 14th.

Samsung Focus, Windows Thinnest Phone

It's always fun to receive new gadgets from companies, one of our latest is the Samsung Focus from Microsoft.

I must admit– I subconsciously doubt almost every touchscreen phone. It's a bad habit, I know, but I just automatically assume they won't work as quick and effectively as, well, yanno… that other phone with the fruit symbol. But once again my doubts are proven to be unfounded– the Samsung Focus not only has a touchscreen that work darn-near flawlessly, the start up is quick (this means the world to us BB users), and the display screen is bright, clear, and quite gorgeous.

The main differentiating feature that makes the Samsung Focus unique is its navigation. The "windows"  or  "tile" menu makes navigating easier and faster, allowing you to be updated on everything (messages, Facebook, calls, etc) without having to open and close multiple applications, ergo, you can focus on what matter to you the most. That sounds kinda cliche', but it's true. Other notable features: its light-weight and slim size, Xbox LIVE and Zune integration, and "audience noise reduction" feature for crystal clear calls.
