Alright gang, let’s be real for moment — most phones suck these days.
My Samsung Galaxy SIII isn’t even 2 years old yet and it lags, it freezes, it restarts on its own when it feels like it… our technology’s disposable as soon as we take it out of the box. When the Trolls and I hit Buffalo last year in the days before fitting my Galaxy SIII with a Mophie case, I quickly discovered that using my GPS alone to get us there dropped my battery to 25%, and I spent the rest of the day struggling. The food court power outlets at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara turned out to just be for show; I dined at Grover’s while eyeing my phone plugged into the nearby wall; and was left hanging by myself while waiting for a table at the Walden Galleria’s Cheesecake Factory, huddled to a power source so I could get my Twitter on… I vowed never to wind up in that helpless situation again. My phone is my lifeline, and I can’t fear that I’ll wind up juiceless on the road when I find killer content I need to share.
Good thing that Everik’s LifeSaver III made sure I didn’t have to.
