The Phone Time Capsule & TAG!


We've all had our fair share of mobile phones. Whether you're 13 or 30, you'll know that we're nothing without our favourite accessory. It's hard to believe that just over 10 years ago, the "smart" in a phone was sending an SMS with a smiley! (Remember those days! Emoji who??)

My own personal mobile journey began when I was about 12/13 years old and my tech-mad dad presented me with one of the best phone at the time. It was about 2005/6, and Crazy Frog was No.1 :p The NEC e616 was the envy of all those kids who got a boring Nokia 3210 with the Snake game for Christmas. I had a phone that could record 10 WHOLE SECONDS OF VIDEO!! OH MY DAYSS- EPIC.

Okay lets not joke...I appreciate how far technology has come. Like wow. To think that in 10 years, we've gone from heavy and unattractive handsets to slick HD display smartphones. In 10 years, who knows what will replace Instagram, Emojis and Siri.

To celebrate my recent purchase of the brand new Samsung S7, I created a "time capsule" video to show you my pride and joys. Six handsets that have taken me through my teenage and pre adult years... DID YOU OWN ANY OF THESE?

Now, here's a quick question and answer, tag styled, about my beloved handsets...

THE PHONE TIME CAPSULE TAG

1) WHICH PHONE IS YOUR ULTIMATE FAVOURITE?
I want to say the S7 because its just a stunner (heart eyed emoji) but I've only had it for 6 days! I suppose the LG Cookie was pretty special - it was my first ever touchscreen phone and it had a little stylus and back then that was so cool!

2) WHICH PHONE JUST DIDN'T CUT IT?
The Samsung S4 Mini - simply because 8GB in 21st century is just so useless! I mean I can't store anything. The fustration of having to delete apps and photos to free up space GRRR. I will not miss that " storage space running out" message. Thank God for 4x that amount on the S7 #HAPPYDAYS

3) WHICH BRAND HAVE YOU BEEN MOST LOYAL TO?
Samsung! I've had three Samsung handsets- the Tocco Lite (which doesn't feature in the video because I've lost it) the S4 Mini and the S7 #TEAMANDROID

4) IF YOU COULD HAVE HAD ONE PHONE FROM THE PAST, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
I've never understood the Blackberry hype, and nor do I envy the IPhone clique. I think I would have wanted to try something like the LG enV Touch (one of those slide keyboard phones that everyone in the US seemed to have. So Gossip Girl!) I was also obsessed with the HTC Desire Eye for agesss because it had an amazing front camera perfect for selfies!

5) WHICH PHONE LASTED THE LONGEST?
Not sure in terms of longevity, but I think I had the NEC for soo long - to the point it was starting to get embarrassing to take it out and use it. It was so clunky and long :s

6) ANY PHONE MISHAPS OR ACCIDENTS?
Nope! Although I'm terribly clumsy and have dropped my phones multiple times, none have broken or suffered damage. I've taken insurance out on the S7 though, because I have a feeling it will be a different story this time around....

7) ARE YOU A TEXT OR CALL USER?
Text! I never call anyone except my Dad and sister :-)

8) WHICH IS THE FIRST APP YOU DOWNLOAD WHEN YOU PURCHASE A NEW PHONE?
Easy: Instagram! (That is after I had the HTC Radar- that phone was a Windows and Instagram wasn't available :( That suckedddd!)

9) MOST EXPENSIVE?
The S7 by far!

10) HOW MANY NETWORK PROVIDERS HAVE YOU USED?
Three. I was on Three back in the day with the NEC and the £10 per month was excruciatingly expensive (yes that's right! 10 A MONTH! Geesh if only I had that now..) And then I had T-Mobile, and now I'm with EE -__- I don't rate EE at all. But that's another story....

11) WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE ON A PHONE FOR YOU?
Camera has to be up there! Also storage is important. And recently the size of phone has really bugged me. I actually hate giant sized phones. It makes me really self concious that everyone could see what I was up to on my phone. Which is why I chose the S7 instead of the S7 edge.

So that's my tag! ( The Phone Time Capsule Tag first appeared on The Kindle Kind)
