I logged onto the Internet in 1985 with a Macintosh, 5600 baud modem, no GUI, a command line and buying magazines to get the URL for sites. My life doesn’t revolve around my smartphone. I even turn it off when I go to sleep – the world can wait until I wake up rested.
I switched to the Z flip because I couldn’t sit down anywhere with a typical “slab” in a secure back pocket that was big enough to fit it into. To sit down anywhere I had to always remove the “slab” and put it somewhere and remember where I placed it. I couldn’t sit in my car, in restaurants, or at home to use my spiffy Windows 10 21H1 PC.
The Z Flip now fits conveniently into a front pocket, and I can sit down easily in my car or anywhere without having to remove it from my pocket. My car links to it in my pocket. I can receive notifications, answer the phone and even take photos without opening it. It does everything I want to do and has made having a smart phone easier. Isn’t that what spending money is all about?
