Saudis take to mobile repairing in Riyadh

Expatriates have for many years been the ones running mobile phone repair shops in Saudi Arabia, but now in Riyadh one can find Saudis managing many shops and reaping a portion of the business’s massive profits.

These service shops do not include extensive repairs, but services like helping customers with installing programs, opening accounts online — such as Google, iTunes and others — as well as upgrading mobile phone’s software, transferring mobile data (contacts, multimedia messages and other files) and downloading and installing games.

According to them, they earn an average SR 7,000 per month or more. These young Saudis do not have qualifications, but have acquired their skills by experience.

There is a strong demand for smartphone applications and maintenance. Most customers request services related to smartphone applications, especially chat and music apps.

“Workers in this field have to be honest and have integrity to preserve costumer’s information and privacy,” said Ali Al-Kuraidis, who owns and works in one of the shops. “Currently expatriates constitute 70 percent of those working in the field.”

Sami Al-Ashqar, an 18-year-old who works in one of the shops, said he entered the field because of his childhood passion for technology, as well as the field’s profitability.

“Since I was 16, I have supported myself completely without my father’s support,” he said. When he started out, he worked in a mobile shop making SR 1,500 a month.

Samsung Attack on iPhone 5 and Reply from Apple Fans

Recently in a Print Advertisment Samsung targeted Apple's iPhone 5 Features and compared it with there best player Galaxy S3. The advertisement was published in a USA's newspapers few days ago. The purpose of this ad was probabally to show weak points of iPhone 5 and raise the powerful points of Galaxy S3. The ad says "It doesn't take a geniuos" and “The next big thing is already here.” Actually it was a bold move from samsung against apple to directly comparing their product with Samsung's product.

15 Best Features of iPhone 5 that can beat Galaxy S3

No doubt Apple's recently launched iPhone 5 is one of the best smartphone with outstanding features and amazing sleek design that no Smartphone manufacture could think of. iPhone 5 is a package of outstanding hardware and software that beats most of today's best smartphones. Earlier with the launch of Galaxy SIII, its manufacturer Samsung claimed that "The next big Thing is already here". However this statement is not as much convincing as it should be.

It has higher download speed, it has more internal storage, it has dedicated camera button, it has less start-up delay and it is equipped with 3 microphones for better voice reception. And what I really love about iPhone 5 is that it has better body construction that uses aluminium instead of Cheap plastic of Galaxy S3. Take a look at the detailed comparison chart of iPhone5 vs GalaxyS3 below.

Contact Numbers of Recruiting Agencies in Jeddah

You might think that this post no way relates to the topic of my blog however this is post based on request of one of the friends. It might be a useful post for job seekers as well. This list is posted by Alwarbah International - Overseas Employment Promoters. Which is a Pakistan based recruiting agency helping people in Pakistan to find jobs in overseas. Most favorite countries for Pakistani people these days are Saudi Arabia, UAE, other Gulf countries, UK, Greece, Italy, Spain and USA.

However the list below is only recruiting companies in Jeddah city, Saudi Arabia. I didn't confirm the telephone numbers and rest of the contact details personally, because it will be a huge mess to call so many recruiting agencies when actually I am not seeking a job. If you try any of the contact details and you got a good service or bad service please comment in the comment box below, Upon your feedback I will update the post accordingly. Soon I will try to publish recruting agency numbers in other cities as well, like Riyadh, Dammam, Khobar, Makkah, Madina, Hail, Yanbu etc.

First Look of iPhone 5 and its Specification

Apple's iPhone which is one of the world's favorite smartphone has launched its new model iPhone 5 today which is one of the biggest innovation happened with iPhone devices as Apple claimed. It is thinner, lighter and so much more than previous versions of the iPhone. It has most biggest screen among all previous smartphones of its series. A 4 inch Retina Display. The 4 inch Retina screen has a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels with 326 pixels per inch density. Apple didn't join the trend of biggest smartphone screen contest like Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and Galaxy Note. They say it is not just bigger but it is just the right screen size a human needs and remain comfortable with that seems eventually true. My personal experience says that smartphones with too big Display size makes them difficult to carry and uncomfortable to use. Although it is more fun to play games and watch movies on bigger screens, but that is a seprate issue.

Another improvement in iPhone 5 is its ultrafast wireless connectivity, data upload and download which is; as per my knowledge fastest download in any available device yet. Apple also added 4G LTE connectivity which doesn't exist in any previous version of the iPhone. The figures are just awesome.

Short Comparison of Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S

22 Amazing Features of Samsung Galaxy S3 that are making it better than Apple iPhone 4S

Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S both are brilliant smartphones of today's time. Galaxy S3 has huge fans and lovers as well as iPhone 4S has. There are a lot of people who love brand, not the specification or price. For example Apple lovers would love to buy Apple product without considering how much money they are paying for it, While Samsung lovers will not consider better features of iPhone 4S, rather they will buy a Samsung product.

There are some customers who strictly follow Features and Specification of smart devices, they are not worried about manufacturer and brand, their only consideration is to get best available device in best value. Such type of people love comparisons and read reviews before actually buying the device. This post is for the same type of people.

I got a lot of help from versusio.com in making this post, because they had done a simple, short and to the point comparison of iPhone4S and GalaxyS3.

Saudi Arabia LG Optimus Mobile Prices and Specification

Smartphone market is getting wider and wider and opening opportunities for more and more manufacturers to build devices and offer in the market for selling. LG is a remarkable name in electronics products and manufacturing TVs, LCDs, Home Appliances, Air Conditioners and other electronics products. Manufacturing smartphones that are up to current standards is not an easy job, however LG is doing this job in a great way. LG developing many Android smartphone based mobile phones and smartphones. From long time I am publishing mobile prices in saudi arabia. A lot of my blog readers like to see latest mobile with price regularly. Mobile Prices is one of active category at my blog. Basically I am attached to a mobile shop so that it is very easy for me to post recent mobile prices on the internet. Few days ago I posted prices of Samsung galaxy in Saudi Arabia and my audience really loved that post. However obtaining mobiles prices from the local mobile market is not easy because no one likes to reveal his retail rates to his competitors. That is one of market tactics when you are involved in sales of mobiles.
