Telephones

Post by smellody » March 1st 2021, 4:00pm

Headed to Costco tonight to upgrade my Note 9 to a S21Ultra. Anyone have one? You like it.

Actually need to upgrade all four phones. Wife and children are NOT big into photography like me so think I'll just go with the S21 for them.

Have three phones without cracked screens that I'll get $600 credit for each. The girls' new phones will be a push monthly. . . Anyone talk me into them requiring S21+ or S21Ultra? Which would cost me more monthly.

Not interested in fruit phones input. If ya all like them then I'm happy for you. I have to use one for work and it is a mental challenge for me to use each time. Definitely not designed by anyone with common sense.

I have a daughter like that. I noticed that she was always damaging her phone but not her glasses. I put to her that she should treat them as similarly fragile. If she put her glasses in her bag during an activity, then put the phone in the same place.

Also got her to upgrade to an Otterbox case rather than the basic one she used. Between the change in behaviour and the better case the phone damage problem went away.

In recent years I used Nexus and now Pixel phones. I like having the latest operating system features. I would say they have been flawless to date.

My (soon to be ex) GF has a Pixel. It's really nice, especially the camera.
