Once in the store, the bright, shiny and new (and giant) Samsung phones really distracted me and made me question my iPhone decision. I always thought a phablet was a silly thing that I would never see myself using. Then I started playing with the Samsung Note II and realized it had so much more to offer than my sad little iPhone. Being able to do multiple things on the screen at the same time really makes me excited to watch a video while sending an email and having the battery life to boot! The marketer in me wants to check out every website I can to see how they render on the interesting screen size and see what type of user experience I would have. The only thing holding me back is looking like Zack Morris and how silly I might look walking around talking on it for the 2% of calls I make without my headphones.
With my head spinning, I retreated to home to continue my research in a new quest to find the perfect phone. What do you prefer, the larger screen size and functionality of the phablet or will your smartphone get the job done just fine?
Let me know!
