I have never had a Smartphone of any kind, I have always had bulky samsung slidy-touch-screen-bulky-annoying phones that have no type of app, really shitty cameras, that don’t hold music.
And my last phone just died. yesterday. It keeps turning off and dying too soon and the buttons are cracked and the screen is not very receptive to touches anymore, so I would say it is about time to get a new phone… coincidentally on the same day the brand new iPhone came out. For most people, this would mean “IT’S IPHONE TIME BITCH”
but for me its whether or not I am going to pay 30-50 dollars a month for a data plan, and then be sucked into the most commercial of all commercial products.
In addition, I recently came to terms with the fact that I would rather not have an iPhone because all my friends do is sit around on their phones scrolling through facebook newsfeeds and instagram feeds, snapchatting selfies every thirty seconds “it’s not a selfie, its just a snap chat! *exasperated sigh*” BUT IT ISNT JUST A SNAP CHAT. IT MAY NOT BE POSTING A SELFIE TO BE LOOKED AT BY 300 PEOPLE FOREVER, BUT IT IS STILL TAKING A SELFIE TO SEND TO ANOTHER PERSON SO THAT PERSON SAYS/THINKS “WOW LOOK AT THAT, OR HAHAHAHAHA SILLY SO-AND-SO” It shouldn’t get me that juiced about it, but when you are the only samsung in a sea of apples, you get pretty sensitive.
so, ANYWAY. I came to terms with the fact my parents were never going to by me an iphone, and that i didn’t want one. BUT THEN MY PHONE DIED.
also, lets backtrack. I got an ipod touch a couple months ago, and for a while i was instagram-ing, snapping, words-with-friends-ing, like the rest of the 5 billion people in the world that own ipods/iphones. and then one week i calculated that i spent about 8 hours a day just constantly checking my various feeds/snaps.
TOO MUCH TIME.
so i stopped using my ipod and i was practically off-grid for a month, and it was a great month.
but now i am faced with the decision. IPHONE OR NOPHONE?
the decision that i should make sounds pretty clear but my heart and my head say no but that devil on my shoulder says BUY THE IPHONE.
well eff you little devil.
