Kiah was super happy with her new phone... and enjoyed that she had a better phone than anyone in the family.
For a few days.
I was getting frustraed with my 4s, which was a perfectly fine phone. However, I take tons of photos with my camera and they were blurry more often than clear lately. I had changed nothing and I'd cleaned the lens so it made no sense. And I knew there were phones out there that had better cameras.
I really wanted to get the Nokia Lumia Icon, which was released at the end of February. However, while I have a Windows laptop, I'm not a huge fan of the Windows 8 interface. I wasn't really sure if I'd like it on my phone. Plus, lack of apps in general for Windows Phones. And I read some real people reviews and they weren't all thrilled.
Then I talked to a guy at Best Buy Mobile and he said if my priority was the camera, then I should get a Samsung Galaxy 4. And they were on sale at Verizon.
But... Android. I'm old, people. I'm not sure I can learn a new operating system at this point in my life.
And apps. I have 3 apps I use on a daily basis for my photos. For at least two of them, they are iOS only apps. I just wasn't sure I could live without PicTapGo in my life. That's serious, not me being sarcastic. I love that app and never post a photo online without running it through PTG.
Then I started thinking about what I love about my iPhone. Being able to FaceTime with family members when we're apart. And we're going on several vacations this year where at least one of my young adults will not be going. I want to use FaceTime more often.
At one point, I decided to just wait for an iPhone 6. And then I thought... I want a new phone before we start those vacations. When the iPhone 6 is released, I can give Brady my 5s and take his upgrade because he does not care about his phone.
It got lost in shipping and took two days longer to arrive than promised, but it was here on Friday and I am in love. I love the fingerprint unlock. I feel like Judy Jetson every time I use it. I love that it's long and light and my new Speck case and the crisp, clear screen. I want to kiss it, I love it so much.
Oh. And Kiah no longer has the best phone in the house.
