Old Tech vs. New Tech. A term that has been floating around for what feels like forever “The best thing since sliced bread.” But without bread in the first place we would not have sliced bread, I think that is safe to say. The same thing goes for tech toys. No VHS tape = no DVD, no vinyl record = no CD, no flip phone = no smart phone. But is the newest tech always the best in every field?
I have had the same phone for the past ten years. You may be asking yourself “Gunther, have you had any problems with your flip phone?” Well, no! I have had the phone for so long it’s almost cool again, almost. But four days ago I bit the bullet and got the best of the best when it comes to smart phones. With a few days of using a smart phone under my belt I can say it’s almost better at everything. Like a Swiss Army Knife for tech. The biggest things I am having a problems with is.
- Where do I put it? The thing is almost the size of my tablet so I can’t put it in any pocket. I am stuck holding it in my hand or throwing it on a table.
- Like I said it’s in my hand or on a table almost all the time. That is when it is not on the charger. Why do I need to charge this thing three or four times a day. If my power ever goes out you will have about five hours to call me and that’s it.
- Data, watch how much you got or it’s going to burn you.
With all this said I like my smart phone and I like my flip phone. If you want a small computer to take with you go with a smart phone. Facebook, Games and more cool toys then you can think of.
If you want to make a phone call when it counts (I don’t know if you can see the screen on the flip phone but my battery is at ¾ and it has not been charged in four days) stick with the flip phone. Your not going to get stuck on the side of the road, in the winter because you were playing Candy Crush at work. A flip phone is for making phone calls only.
