Join Us Weekly as We Add a New Stroll Down Memory Lane to Our Weekly Throwback Thursday Link Up.
This week my memories are taking me down the lane to phones!
I’ve been a huge fan of cell phones for many years. My very first cell (around 2002) was one of those standard Nokia phones that certainly didn’t fit into my pocket The face plate was interchangeable, mine was a transparent lt blue.
I upgraded to the Samsung S300 which was equipped with two screens. The front screen would let you know who was calling or texting without opening your phone. It was actually quite small and the web page view was… well basically nonexistent. However it did fit into my pocket.
I had a few other models through the years; with each up grade a promise of better things to come. As you can see in the picture below I also tried out a Samsung phone with the sliding keyboard. This was ok but still the screen was very small. Then I purchased the Sanyo with a flip top screen with a functioning keyboard. This one actually was a step up from all my earlier phones.
Then came my experience with the iPhone 3 which I’ve used for some time. I really liked being able to back up my phone on my mac. The apps were great and for the first time I could actually use my phone for work; well most of the time (when I had a signal).
Now thanks to the great folks over at http://ad-for-verizon.com/ #VZWVoices #Boomer I’ve been using the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD. Let me tell you right out of the box it was love at first sight. Why you ask. Because my eye sight isn’t what it used to be and the very first thing I noticed about the Motorola Droid was the size of the screen, which quickly lead me to the settings where I was able to adjust the text. Yes, I could do the same on my old iPhone, however the text and screen on the Droid is MUCH larger. I can actually read a text without my glasses if needed (you know early AM check the phone before you start the coffee type of thing).
The second feature I’ve come to love is the simple set up and drop in when I want to add and app or place a group of “like” apps in one place (example my apps for work are in one spot).
The seamless sharing when I wish to share a photo or page with friends and family.
I’m able to check in with each of my online work links when I’m away from my desk (like when I waiting in line a the supermarket or cooking dinner) the Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Instagram and so many more apps are only a finger tip touch away.
And drum roll please… I LOVE the battery life. Seriously this bad boy can keep up with my high usage and still have power at the end of the day.
And least I forget the tethering option which comes in handy during car tips.
Overall I’d say the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD had been by far the best smartphone experience for me so far!
Let me make this one suggestion. If you are thinking about a phone upgrade or perhaps as a holiday gift in the months ahead. I can honestly say you can’t go wrong with a Motorola Droid.
Do you remember your first cell phone. Do you use cell phone, if so how do you use your phone. Work. Keeping in touch with family and friends. Emergencies.
