They used to say, “kids say the darnedest things.” Now it’s “kids TEXT the darnedest things!” I know I love to use my smartphone to communicate with my teen, wheather we’re sharing funny memes or I’m just asking him to take out the trash. It’s easier than yelling across the house anyway…
AT&T posted this silly video of moms reading texts from their teens. Can you relate?
They also want to help remind your teens to not text and drive…so they made free printable your teen can print out and give for Mother’s Day. Because nothing make a mom happier than know her kids are safe.
This year, we’re asking you to take the #Pledge4Mom at ItCanWait.com. Pledge your love to your mom, grandma, sister, aunt or that special woman in your life. Pledge to always be a safe driver and to keep your eyes on the road, not on your phone.
Just so you know, I’m actually an AT&T customer. And recently, one of their reps loaned me a Samsung Galaxy S7 to play around with to review. For the sake of full disclosed, I wasn’t paid for the review, I just used the phone for a couple weeks and sent it back. That way we all know I’m giving an honest opinion.
Samsung Galaxy S7
I was really impressed with the phone’s camera! Wow, talk about sharp. The display was super crisp, it put my iPhone 5s to shame. I really like the size, big enough to do some photo editing on, but still able to fit in a pocket. I was seriously jealous the day I had to box up the Galaxy and send it back! The phone also comes with a Direct TV app built in, so if you have AT&T for both your wireless and your cable, you can watch shows on your phone with ease.
I did have one issue with the phone–because the design is so slim on the edges it’s super easy to tap things you don’t mean to tap. Now I know, they’re trying to impress us with this super huge screen taking up most of the phone…but if you have a hard time controlling the phone because there’s no place left to put your hand? I’m not seeing the point. Several times I’d try to take a photo and slip my finger onto the edge of the screen and find myself in another app. Obviously this is a problem you’d get used to after owning the phone for a while, but still? It’s something to think about.
Watch this video below to get more on the specs. If you’re thinking about going Android, this one is definitely worth your investment. (Which isn’t much of an investment if you use the Next program.)
