Hard to beat a smart phone for alot of stuff and they're cheap enough now for decent unit.. Or you can spend 1200 bucks on one.

I am a DSL customer and if AT&T keeps it's promise to shut my connection off at some point I will get with the program and purchase a smart device of some sort. I will hate it for awhile, then learn the ropes and carry on.

I've been happy with my Samsung S9. I can go almost 2 days before it needs to be charged. I had the phone now for 2 years. My previous phone was a Samsung S5 which I still have. I liked it because I can change the battery in just a few minutes, but finding a decent battery was a pain. I tried several China crap batteries, but they would not last more than 10 hours, so I upgraded to the S9.

I haven't charged my Galaxy A50 in a couple days. I am currently at 27%. Could possibly get through another day without charging it, but since I am likely to not be near a charger for a while, I will charge it now.

I got one mainly for weather and traffic. Then Nikon came out with Snapbridge for their cameras, so of course I added that.

I still have my S6. In perfect shape. Got a new screen protector, old one was getting scarred, handed the phone to a female coworker because she showed me a feature I did not realize the S6 had, and she immediately broke the new screen protector. I just do not understand how people break their screens or screen protectors so much.

My BIL/SIL and family never use cases or screen protectors. They go through phones constantly, I saw one get destroyed on day 1 myself.

I've never had a screen protector on any of my iPhones and the only time I've ruined an iPhone is when it got accidentally washed. I do have a folding case on my iPad just so I can use it hands-free (stands up at a slant.)

To be completely honest, the first "screen protector" wasn't a true screen protector. Just a thin piece of plastic that came with the case. I hated how it got so hard to see the screen, so i bought one that is supposed to be stronger.

I don't have a screen protector on my S9, and the screen does not have a single mark on it from having it in my pocket with my keys.
