Carphone Warehouse – my first online mobile shopping review!

Well, as a beginner in UK most of my experience is nothing but “THE FIRST EVER” experience in UK. This is the first time I am going to post my “FIRST ever” UK experience.

Long Story Short: It was in fact an iphone to android switch after having an experience of 6 months of Apple, I had decided to get back to android!

Nexus: As most of my previous android devices since 2011 were Samsung, I wanted to have a PURE android experience and there was nothing better than NEXUS! Following a short research I ended up with Nexus 6P!

How to buy a Nexus 6P in UK? – LOL, go to shop and grab one following payment. Things were not that straight forward like Bangladesh, rather it was far easier than I could imagine of, “Online purchase and Home delivery on the next day!”

 

I found carphone warehouse as the most reliable one to search between different phones and one of the most convenient ones to deal with. My preference was a Graphite 32 GB Nexus 6P sim free. I found it on the site and had a over phone conversation with carphone warehouse who ensured me that the phone is out of stock for all the local, Nottingham, shops. But they can sent it to me on the next day.

The Next Day! Honestly, it sounded cool for me and I paid online. Then I come to know I have the option to select the time of delivery even, with DPD. Although DPD charged few pounds for this, but I found it very convenient.

On the next day morning I got the confirmation from carphone warehouse that the phone shall be delivered within one hour! I really got excited – first NEXUS, first stock ANDROID, first phone from carphone warehouse, first HOME DELIVERY phone purchase – MOREOVER A NEW DEVICE!

By half an hour I got the knock from the DPD driver and got the phone in hand!

WOW.

Here Goes The DPD delivery pouch!
THE NEXUS unboxing!

CARPHONE WAREHOUSE:

I was very satisfied by the support and services provided by carphone warehouse. As this was my first purchase from them, I had to call them several time and every time I got a detailed review about my query. Their representatives were very welcoming and supportive to solve the issues.

After using the Nexus 6P for around a week, I have fallen in love with android again. It’s android and google which is far far intuitive than any other OS or ecosystem in the world!

If you have similar experiences of online phone shopping, I would be very happy to know your experiences! Cheers!

So, What I’m getting at TELETALK 3G 1 Mbps speed actually?

Its ping was 140 ms (The lower the better), that’s average but remember it varies according to time & sever you are connected!

Download speed – 1.83  Mbps which is 234.24 KB/s & if you consider kbps its 1.83 Mbps, which is definitely more than 1 Mbps! (Happy with the awesome speed as getting almost double of the speed they said!)

1 Mbps = 128 KB/s

Upload sped – 1.34 Mbps which is 171.52 KB/s & if you consider 1 Mbps its 1.34 Mbps, which is definitely more than 1 Mbps!

OMG, the download speed is almost double of the original package speed! Well Done Teletalk 3G!

Grameenphone 3G 512kbps speed test review

From the last quarter of 2013, Grameenphone of Bangladesh has started 3G services, though they come out with the best HSPA+ technology in the country, but they provide only 1Mbpb & 512 kbps speed for the customers.

What ever, today I’m going to share speed experience of 512 kbps GP 3G!

Here is the result in speedtest!

GP 3G 512 kbps

(I checked this speedtest at Samsung galaxy s4 near Gulshan area, speed may vary according to location and number of usage at your area under same BTS!)

So, What I’m getting at GP 3G 512kbps speed actually?

Its ping was 46 ms (The lower the better), that’s really good but remember it varies according to time & sever you are connected!

Download speed – 0.63Mb/s which is 80.64 KB/s & if you consider kbps its 645.12 Kbps, which is definitely more than 512kbps! (Happy with the speed as getting more than what they said!)

512kbps = 0.5Mbps = 64KB/s

Upload sped – 0.61Mb/s which is 78.08 KB/s & if you consider kbps its 624.64 Kbps, which is definitely more than 512kbps!

Not bad I think! As they have the best coverage in Bangladesh, I think it would be a good choice if you travel a lot inside Bangladesh!

So, GP provides some decent speed via gp 3G services, hope they’ll maintain their good quality and provide some affordable packages for the general people of Bangladesh!

GP provides almost 80KB/s download speed which is decent at any 512kbps line!
