Have you looked at your cellphone recently? I bet you have but have you looked at it and thought to yourself that maybe it is time for something different? 10 years ago that (maybe less) that would have been the case. New technology was constantly coming out, and phones were constantly getting new features. Now it just seems like all phones are the same with a few variations.
So I bet that the majority of you use your cellphone to check social media, email, maybe listen to music, look up a quick Google search oh and of course play candy crush (i hate that game btw) So if that is all you are doing, does the type of cellphone you have matter? If we are just doing these basic things on our phones why is there endless debate over who makes a better phone Apple or Android or Windows?
I am an iPhone user and I probably will never switch away, but my life is embedded in iOS so it makes sense to have my iMac, iPad and iPhone (and eventual MacBook Air) to be synced seamlessly. Beyond that my phone doesn’t matter.
Very few people truly unlock the potential that their smartphone provides them. Sure we manage our contacts, put appointments into the calendar, download a flashy cool weather app. However, I feel smartphones were meant to be more along the lines of personal organizers and virtual assistants. How many of us say their phone does that for them? And if your phone does do that for you, is it because of the type of phone your using or would you be able to do that with any phone?
So again, I ask, Does the type of cellphone you use matter?
