Smartphones: which have you?

Smartphones: which have you?
Curious Dave here, asking the above title question. Why Dave? Because I've not much else to do, and Mom gave me a replacement 7,200 mAh battery for my ancient Samsung Note 4. BTW it was packaged with a bumped out battery door/phone back and a rubber phone protector for less than $25.

So happy 50th Dave! SHa_clap2

RE: Smartphones: which have you?
the big 5 - 0! happy b'day Dave! my first and only smartphone has been a note 5. big enough but not too big. gotta have the stylus; never learned to operate a smartphone with my fingers; it just doesn't seem to work well; plus it keeps fingerprints on the screen to a minimum. 7200 mAh is huge isn't it?

When I retired after almost 50 years on the road, I got rid of my watch & my cell phone. No need, no use, no stress.  Dancing

Have a happy 50th. Coffee

Yes I think so. I could have chosen this other HUGE battery on eBay that was just over 10,000 mAh, but either the seller or the product was poorly rated so I passed.

Free virtual birthday cake on me! Smile

Thanks.

Assuming you're/were a fellow truck driver. I had to quit my regional OTR stuff after 11 years due to multiple back injures in '09.

Wouldn't mind minimal bloatware myself. At least my Note 4 isn't connected to a service provider; Wi-Fi only for this mini tablet. This jumbo battery just made the Note about twice as thick as it was. IMO I like the feel better though.

You are assuming right, I was. I stopped working for a laminectomy surgery & ended up with paraparesis & failed back syndrome.  
Then I retired. Oh-jeez    It's hard but a lot of people have it worse than me so I can't complain. 

My apnea therapy is doing good & I'm feeling great. Smile    Hope things go well for you!  Coffee

Thanks, sb. Best to ya as well. My last job, just after driving, was an IT-ish support job. I'm "retired" AKA disabled. Can't even do less than sedentary.

RE: Smartphones: which have you?
Happy belated birthday Dave!
I always think of you as my ASV brother as we started our ASV journey's about the same time, you were ahead of me by a bit though, always appreciated you kind comments. 
I have an Iphone 7 plus, the bigger version. My brother started working for Apple late last year and wants me to get the new latest greatest Iphone for 25% off, but that's still quite a lot of money and there is nothing wrong with the one I have! maybe when the new ones come out, who knows.
I am 56 and still working, hopefully until something makes me stop, I am not sure what I would do with no where to go every day, or night, as I work the overnight shift. I do really love what I do as I work at a hospital and get to help make the lives of our patients better. I work in behavioral health.
Sleep-well
Robert
