If you follow my blogs, you know that the camera aspect of a Smart Phone is kind of a deal breaker for me. I don’t use another camera, and I like to have photos easy to upload and share. Well the Samsung Galaxy S8 very well maybe the best camera in a phone I’ve ever had.
To go from the Alcatel Flip Phone to the Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a huge change. I feel like how Marty McFly must have felt from going to his parent’s high school days and then to the future with hover boards. I just can’t believe how fast and futuristic it feels!
Over the month with the phone, the question I got more than any others (well, besides “Is that a flip phone) was “Who does Sprint think this device would be good for?” or sometimes just “Who would actually use that device?”
Last week’s blog I left with a quest to get the device working enough for my 2017 ways. And I am happy to say that this phone was able to address some of my needs, but not quite all of them (which fortunately those needs would not necessarily be ones who would be users of the phone).
One of my favorite TV Show’s is Portlandia, and the opening of the first episode is this funny parody song where the main characters discuss how in the 1990’s everyone was happy and hopeful, and in some ways it was a simpler time - things like CD’s still existed. Well I think they could totally add a verse about the Alcatel Go Flip, or at least have it be the official phone of Portlandia
