iPhone 7 Review
I currently have an iPhone 7 and I only got this phone because my iPhone 5 had stopped working. I find technology is helpful but if I didn’t have to upgrade my phone then I wouldn’t have. In these following paragraphs you’ll learn what I use my phone for, some of my favorite features and applications, as well as my thoughts and feelings on if my phone has made my life easier.
I use my phone for many things and those things aren’t social media or Netflix. I’m a Team Lead and occasional Supervisor at my job so if we have a call out, I must be able to contact the employees see why they aren’t there and contact someone to come in to cover the shift. I also use my phone to contact my Managers or Technical Support if something is wrong or down at my job since I have limited access to files. There have been times in the past when my Manager has left me as Manager on duty and people haven’t shown up so I had to contact my Manager about the issue and then call someone in to help so we could function properly and not a person down. My phone for me isn’t for phone, social media, or watching videos it’s more for work and if I would get into any accidents. As well contacting family in other states is easier rather then writing to them because them and you receive the message right away; even though some people still write and send letters to people it isn’t as normal in today’s society since we spend all our time staring at our screen.
A feature I most like is iPhones tend to be very light weight making it easier to carry around with me at all times. My phone is on the small size so I can still easily fit it into my pocket and not have an issue. I also have a translator on my phone to make talking with foreigners easier. Along with messaging or texting in this case is much easier because the keyboard isn’t as small as a flip phone so I can get messages and emails out quicker when I’m on the go. I enjoy also being able to add events to my calendar and add peoples phone numbers to my contacts and not write them down in a book and forget about them or lose them. The search feature in a phone makes it easier to find information rather than having to search through countless piles of books for information. Using the calculator on my phone is also easy to use when closing the cash register and then I don’t have to carry a calculator with me because my phone has that in it. Added apps such as Snapchat, Facebook, Youtube, etc. I guess are nice, but they shouldn’t be the determining factor when you get a phone, yet most people chose phones based solely on these purposes. For entertainment purposes such as when in a car with my niece it’s easy to play songs she likes from my phone and keep her entertained for however long we maybe in the car for. I also use my phone for school to my Highschool I attend has a school app that they contact us on to keep us up to date and the college I’ll be attending also has a school app were I got the pleasure of speaking to former classmates, classmates I’ll be with, finding a roommate, and much more. This has made it easier for me because of being busy with work, school, and filling out scholarships and I also don’t feel as nervous because of my anxiety when talking to them.
My phone has made my life easier because I can easily call employees, managers, etc. and when having car trouble, I can call my parents or a tow truck. I also work in a public area and have had to use my phone as a translator before for foreign guests granted the translations aren’t always perfect, but they get the general gist and understand. If I could have a older version of a phone such as my first phone which was a Nokia flip phone then I’m not sure I’d be able to translate to people or reach people from anywhere I am; so I’m grateful for my phone and also how far technology has come. Contacting people, watching videos, and reading has never been easier because it’s at the tips of our fingers. Even though having a phone has made my life easier it’s also made it worse off. I’ll constantly be checking my phone for messages from my Manager or fellow employees about work and things of that nature. When out to diner with my friends I also have more anxiety talking to them face to face since I don’t see them as often and conversation feels forced even though I’ve know them my whole life I should feel relaxed yet I don’t because of being so used to talking through a phone. So even with technology being amazing and helpful currently it’s also made it harder to talk to people face to face.
I had enjoyed writing my thoughts down on the matter of my phone and how exactly it has helped and hurt me.
