Unpacked 2020

Unpacked 2020

I’m happy to share that like last year, Samsung Austria once again invited me to their Unpacked 2020 event in San Francisco. This year, the UNPACKED 2020 event took place in a venue located right next to the Palace of Fine Arts, one of my favourite spots in Frisco. During the event, Samsung presented their new innovative devices such as the Galaxy Z flip, the Galaxy S20, and the Galaxy Buds+ etc.

Unpacked 2020

Since I have been a long time Galaxy fan, I feel lucky for being one of the early participants who got to see first hand, Samsung’s new devices that will change the shape of the future. If you wish to have a look at the Unpacked 2020 Event, you can watch it here.

After the Unpacked Event, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Media Noche. Then we all headed to the Galaxy Creators Lounge. Samsung set up a creative space with several photography booths that gave us the opportunity to create photos using the new Samsung devices. That was a lot of fun, I have to say. We spent several hours in the Galaxy Creators Lounge and then went for dinner at a sushi place.

Both events were held during the first day of my trip in San Francisco. We had two more days to explore the city, walk around, visit cute cafes and restaurants and of course, take pictures and test the camera of the Galaxy S20.

The photos that you see in this blog post were taken by the talented, San Francisco based, Viceth Vong. He was invited by Samsung to join us for a photo walk and to show us his favorite spots in the city. Of course we had the master himself take a few pics of us while we were testing the camera of the Galaxy S20 and the camera of the Galaxy Z flip. If you wish to have a look at the photos that we took with the S20, please click here.

Now, if you’d like my honest opinion on both of these mobile devices, I’d be glad to tell you. I think that the Galaxy Z flip is a statement smartphone, a smartphone that will catch everyone’s attention. It’s a playful premium device with a smooth, sleek and symmetrical design. However, if I am out there in the market, looking for a high resolution mobile camera that will perform at its best under every condition, then I’d go for the Galaxy S20.

San Francisco

There are some places on Earth that seem distant and out of reach, making the chance to visit them feel almost impossible… until it actually happens.

In this blog post, I want to share some photos I took during my time in San Francisco, along with some tips for where to find great food, coffee, and cake.

So, if you’re curious about how I ended up in San Francisco, keep reading!

My trip to San Francisco

I was invited to San Francisco by Samsung Austria to attend the Unpacked Event and to celebrate 10 Years Galaxy with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S10.

The Unpacked event took place at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and the evening party took place at the amazing terrace bar of The Proper Hotel.

I am not the best person to explain each and every new tech feature. What I can say with certainty is that there are two features that excite me particularly in the new Samsung Galaxy: first, the ultra wide angle lens (oh, yes!) and the partnership of Samsung with Instagram for the best Instagram experience on a smartphone.

How I spent my time in San Francisco

During my first three days in San Francisco, I explored the city alone, wandering up and down its famous hills. Thanks to some research I did online before leaving Vienna, I felt well-prepared and ready to tackle San Francisco on my own.

If you’re planning a solo trip to a new city, I recommend doing some research beforehand—it can make a big difference!

Although my first three solo days were nicely spent, I was looking forward to spending the coming days with the good company of Nina and Greg (#TeamGalaxy from Austria)

Palace of Fine Arts

What I loved about the city

The architecture of the houses. All the cafes and restaurants that we visited. Pier 7. The sea lions. The area around the Palace of Fine Arts. What I liked less about San Francisco: Downtown San Francisco. The homeless people in the city center. Fisherman’s wharf area. The high prices of nearly everything.

Personal thoughts on San Francisco

I loved San Francisco. It wasn’t love at first sight though. It took me a while. Once you get to know the city better, you get to realise how pretty it is. And in order to get to know the city better, you have to get out of Downtown San Francisco. Explore the area around the Painted ladies, the area around the Palace of Fine Arts, Baker beach, Battery Spencer etc…

San Francisco

I have always find it hard to find the right words to describe beautiful things, places and experiences in life. Because when it comes to beautiful places/experiences, words become useless and poor. You have to go and see the view from Battery Spencer yourself, in order to understand what I’am talking about. Definetely a view that will never get out of my mind.
