Just switched to android about 2 months ago. Probably going to switch to a flip phone next.
@MetalHeadTony, it's nice to see someone else say it so I dont feel like as much if a luddite. When my current phone does it will me flip phone for me as well
@MetalHeadTony, after 13 years of being a slave to phones I will join you. I deleted my Facebook this summer. Can't do the negativity anymore.
@Desiderata, I permanently deleted my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I still have this and snapchat as my only social media, if you even want to call it that
@MetalHeadTony, I’m right with you. I’m tired of the smart phones, which are significantly less smart than their names suggest. It’s like I spent all of the 90s and 2000s waiting for cool tech only to be stuck using my dumb thumbs on a tiny ass screen. wash your phones people!
@orion55, the only real tech I have and wasn't disappointed in is my robot vacuum. Thing is amazing.
@MetalHeadTony, I have snapchat but never use it beyond the filters for fun. I dont understand it.
@Desiderata, I hate it but I have some friends that only text me through snap chat so I just keep it.
@MetalHeadTony, oh okay
@MetalHeadTony, some new tech is absolutely life changing. But if you think about smart phones, they’ve been “the same thing” for 10+ years now. That’s not smart or advancement. Time for a new biggest thing!
Apple 2022: The usb c to lightning cable is hurting people's emotions. We will no longer be including that. BUT, we'll include a piece of candy if you buy our flagship. And thats the only way to charge the device :)
I can still use the headphones I used for my Walkman and GameBoy Color with the Android phone I bought last month. They're sh!tty headphones, but they still work.
@Anonymous Jack III, impressive you must take great care of them
Okay hear me out. Last year someone over in Europe made it so that phone companies can't all have different chargers anymore (listen I have adhd and ptsd so my memory is jacked on specifics). They all have to have the same kind of chargers that all fit universally. I seriously think this is Apple's petty response to that.
@Desiderata, see! https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/iphone-charger-single-usb-android-eu-parliament-europe-vote-a9311696.html
Yup, you can use those if you buy a 50 dollar dongle
You still get a charging cable, just not the brick
@supahotfiya, I'm just trying to figure out how that's even remotely justifiable? Like nowadays phones are coming out with super fast charger IN THE BOX, and Apple justified chose to omit the block completely
@supahotfiya, next year the phone will have to be purchased separately too LOL
@supahotfiya, some people just don’t get it, if you don’t like a product ..... don’t buy it ....... but also they neglect that it will have the cable.
And the apple ecosystem people will continue to buy them because they already are too invested to leave
