I feel I cannot refer to myself as a "Geek". I have a huge geeky side but I feel that becoming a full fledged Geek would be a full time job and possibly require higher education from Geek University. My partner and I are admittedly a little geeky and love technology. I remember about 5 years ago I was a T-Mobile customer and I bought my first smart phone. It was the HTC My Touch. It had a 3" screen and I marveled at the apps and all the cool stuff it did. Looking back, I realize that it did not do much and had a crummy display but I could get email on it and it took pictures.
My geeky progression brought me to Verizon and the DroidX phone. I have had Verizon and the DroidX for 3 years. I loved my DroidX. I did more with it. I started using google calendar, drop box and google drive on it. It was my 3G right arm. Two months ago I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Still with Verizon. The display blew away my DroidX and my tablet became my Left Arm. I write contracts on it. I can use it everywhere because of the data plan and I have all the cloud features so I can do everything on it I can do on my laptop. My partner teased me about buying it saying I was "a nerd" and "one of those people". The first evening I had it he asked to see it. It was returned to me hours later when the battery died. LOL.
Monday was my Birthday. Sunday was the day I was available for my phone upgrade through Verizon. We headed to Verizon to combine our plans. I was paying $160. a month for the phone and tablet with 6G data. He was paying $150. for 2 lines and a data plan. We now have 2 smart phones, 1 tablet and one flip phone all on one plan for $189. a month. While we were there we each used our upgrades and Brian bought my phone as a Birthday gift. We are now the happy owners of the Samsung Galaxy SIII. The second I woke up the screen I was in love. It is amazingly fast (so is the samsung tablet). the camera is AMAZING and lets you take repeated pictures in a matter of a fraction of a second. You can take pictures from the video. The screen is BIG but the phone is very slim. It has S Voice (Siri) and S Beam. S Beam is how you transfer files from one phone to another. Brian took a picture of our puppy and I wanted it. We touched phones and he tapped the photo and BAM I had it on my phone in like 4 seconds.
If you are looking for a new smart phone I highly reccomend you take a look at the Samsung. I did look at the iphone5 and after about 3 minutes I walked away from it convinced it was not what I wanted.
