Guys, I have big news.
I mean, HUGE NEWS.
Yesterday, I said goodbye to my beloved Samsung Alias flip phone and got a SMARTPHONE!!!!
I know, I'm a little late to the smartphone party. I did not want a smartphone at all. I didn't understand the point. If I need the internet, I have internet at home and at work. I don't need to have the internet with me everywhere I go.
So then what changed my mind?
Well, about a year and a half ago, Paul got his first smartphone and I fell in love with the camera. The cameras are SO GOOD! He gets sick of me stealing his phone to take blog pictures and wanted me to get my own. I sort of learned how to do a couple things on his phone, so I started to feel more comfortable with the concept of having a smartphone.
Then my upgrade with Verizon rolled around and since getting a smartphone would only increase our bill by $4 a month, it was a no brainer.
Paul picked it up for me yesterday and had it all ready for me when I got home from work. It was a surprise! I didn't think I was getting it until September 6th but he did an early upgrade!
It is a Samsung Galaxy S6. He got a screen protector for me and I'm getting a phone case for it tomorrow.
I'm a little nervous that I won't end up liking it, so I am keeping my Alias. I can always go back to my flip phone if I don't like my smartphone.
I just don't want to become one of those people that is addicted to their phone, or has their face in their phone when they should be interacting with people! Friends, if I start doing that, please call me out on it!
Oh well. It's the end of an era. I'm a little sad but also excited!
Anyone out there still rocking a flip phone?
Any tips for me as a new smartphone user?
