I need a new phone. I have not had a smart phone before; just didn’t want to take the time to learn how to use one. But it’s time to stop being stubborn. I could use some recommendations. I know so little I don’t know where to start. Is there a site where I can get basic information? Like Wikipedia for phones?
My husband likes his LG, I find it very unintuitive. A friend also has one and hates it. I also don’t want such a large phone. I wear my present one in a holster at my waist, and don’t want to have to keep something that big in a pocket. His LG automatically uploads his photos to a Google cloud site. I don’t know if that is a feature of those phones or if they all do it. I take a lot of photos, but they are just for me: I am not a “real” photographer, so don’t need something fantastic or editing function in the phone. If I want to edit or crop I’ll do it on my computer.
I am inclined toward an IPhone – but only a dirt simple one, if such a thing exists - since I heard that when traveling overseas you can text or chat with any other IPhone for free. My kids both have them. They have said that they are very intuitive and easy to learn with.
I don’t play games or watch videos, so the apps I want will be few. Things like weather, mapping, email, Facebook.
We have a contract with ATT, as we have 4 phones sharing data. I saw some simpler I Phones (SE I think?) at the ATT store, but buying them is outside our contract. One is a GO phone. I don’t know much about those, but think that makes no sense since we have a data plan. I might as well just buy one at a store, right? T
hanks for your advice.
