It’s not just a new device, it’s a whole new category, and possibly the most desirable piece of tech to launch in 2020. When folded, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is a phone; unfolded, it’s a full, seamless, 7.6 inch screen tablet. Both ways, it’s your life in your hands. We asked Nicky Logue, general manager of the five star Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin, to see how the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G fitted in to his life.
As the general manager of the Intercontinental Dublin, Nicky Logue has faced a range of difficulties this year due to Covid travel restrictions.
He spends more time at his desk, planning and communicating with his teams, working long hours.
So when he can, Nicky tries to take his office to his country home in Co Clare, something that's been fairly easy to do with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
LIFE RIGHT NOW?
"I started working in a hotel in my hometown of Ennis, Co Clare aged 13, and loved it from day one. I still love my job, although 2020 is a year we will not forget for a long time. I miss the contact with our hotel guests as we work through the various Covid levels of restriction.
"I’m at my desk more, planning for different scenarios, as well as keeping up communication with our teams."
WHAT BRINGS JOY?
"Spending time with my partner, family and friends. That time can be limited due to my long hours and work commitments, so when I can, I try to make the most of it."
HOW DO YOU USE TECH?
"It’s essential right now for keeping in touch with the team; we use the Beekeeper app for project management and comms across the group. I also connect online daily with the wider travel industry, plus use technology for business and personal banking, and for news updates.
"Email is an essential, as are the social media apps. Pinterest is always handy when it comes to design inspiration."
THOUGHTS ON THE GALAXY Z FOLD 2 5G?
"It’s so fast, and offers the convenience of a phone, space of a tablet and functionality of a laptop all in one handset. A super-handy solution if I need to take my 'office' to my country home in Co Clare."
GOALS FOR 2021?
"I look forward to our many loyal guests returning to us. We’ll have the red carpet rolled out and ready for everyone."
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G comes in two premium colour options (Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze), available at Harvey Norman and the Samsung online store from RRP €2,099, shop.samsung.com/ie.
