S is for Smart Phone

SSmart phones, tablets, laptops, computers and even smart TV’s…it’s all a bit much for this “technology challenged” little miss!  Lucky for me I have a step-dad who is brilliant with all of this…so he’s my go to person for everything technology related!

A few years ago I was lucky enough to win an iPad!  I was very excited, even though I had no idea what you did with them or how you would use it…within a week I was hooked and it has barely left my side since!

After having some success with the iPad, I moved onto an iPhone and have been happy with that combination…until recently…I decided it might be time to take a look at the Samsung phenomenon that’s been sweeping the world.

I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with the intention of using it for a hotspot with my laptop when out and about as well as an electronic diary and maybe moving to the Samsung phone, but I can’t get the battery life to last a decent amount of time which means I’m already back to using a manual diary…so now I’m just confused!

I seriously can’t decide what to do!  Part of me says stay with the Apple technology because I “kinda” know how to use it, and part of me wants to move with the Samsung platform since it appears to be a bit more flexible…

I’m not sure if I want to ask this…but what are your thoughts?

    I don’t have an iPhone, but I do have an iPad, and generally, I find that Apple’s mobile devices are a pain to sync with non-Apple devices.

    I have a Samsung smartphone, and it has served me really well. I just take care of the battery issues with a portable charger. 🙂

      Thanks Clueless (I don’t think you really are clueless!!), I do have a portable charger so I guess that’s something in my favour!

    I’m an apple girl. Our first computer was an apple and we’ve stayed with the family ever since. My first phone was not, I just got the cheapest I could but I’ve moved to an iPhone now and couldn’t be happier.

    The iPhone/Samsung decision was made for me because of all the apps I have on my Touch plus the learning curve. I didn’t think it was worth the hassle to learn a new system but I’m a stay at home mom and don’t need my stuff to communicate with coworker’s stuff.
