So thisLAZY OLD GEEK (LOG) decided to get a smartphone. So being who I am, this involved some decision making and this Instructable explains some of my decisions, so maybe this could be called:
Smartphone for dummies, OLD, cheap, frugal, Lazy, aging, seniors.
But who would read it with a title like that.
So I am OLD, I remember using the rotary phones. (See picture) Simple to use and reliable. Almost everyone could use them.
Then there’s the wireless phone and cellphone (See picture). For making calls, still pretty simply. You just might have to push a button to make a call or hang up and you had to stay in range.
Then there’s the smartphone! Yikes, millions of manufactures, versions, features, options. So what is a smartphone? Wikipedia has a definition:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartphone
To me a smartphone is any cellphone that can do a lot more than just make calls.NOTE:
There are very few physical buttons. Significant later.
