Fairly recently I was out with some friends and my 'Gadget Man' brother, we were deep in conversation when an irritating, high pitched beeping tune rang from my back pocket. Pulling out my old nokia with it's black and white screen and interchangable cases I recieved a sheer look of pure distain from my brother. How could I possibly be seen dead with that phone? He questioned me.
The truth is, I loved my old phone, it was sturdy, I'd dropped it more times than I could care to count, and even submerged it in water doing the ever dangerous, 'texting in the bath.' I wasn't ready to step into the consuming world of 'smart phones.' However, my brother insisted and so a week later I was unwrapping my early christmas present from him, The LG Electronics Smartphone.
Suddenly I was faced with mp3 on my phone, (completely useless as I have an mp3 player) a camera on my phone, (also useless, I have a camera!) and the incredibly daunting premise of.....touchscreen! The next thing I knew I was sending texts containing pure gibberish! When I tried to answer a phone call, every app opened and my phone began flashing. And the worst part, my battery, which on my old phone could easily last me up to a week, was dying in a day! I went camping with some friends and completely lost contact with the outside world before I'd even spent a night there!
And the worst part? As a completely clumsy by nature, fall over my own feet if I try doing more than one thing at once kind of girl, I simply could not stop dropping it!! Whereas my sturdy, trusty little nokia had survived trips down the stairs, I had a crack on my brand new screen within a week simply by knocking it off the coffee table! Needless to say, I soon reverted back to my old ways of monophonic ringtones and snake.
I'm sure to technology loving folks that can walk down the street without tripping on a crack in the path, then this phone could easily be a fantastic lovable little gadget. However, if like me you prefer to keep your texts and phone calls simple and much prefer to push a button than a flat screen, or if you drop everything that is ever put in your hands, maybe this isn't the phone for you. It certainly wasn't for me.
Summary: Nice looking phone but not very practical or hardwaring.
