Oneupweb: Just as I Suspected

Posted on in Blog

I didn’t do it by choice, but I now have a smartphone. Well, at least that’s how it’s advertised. I put off getting a new phone for as long as I could, but my old one finally crapped out on me. For only the price of a small car payment, I was able to get a phone with unlimited web access, photo and video texting, and some other features that are not worth mentioning. Oh yeah, and the other four phones on my plan went from $10 a month to $20, so they could use the unlimited texting as well.

I’ve had the phone for a couple of  weeks and I must say, it stinks. I didn’t really think that I would use the phone for accessing the web besides e-mail, and I was right. I only use it for viewing my e-mail, although I’ve tried to utilize it more by accessing news sites. That brings me to the reason I never wanted a smartphone. It’s the simple fact that the screens are just too small to read a web page. Yes, I can zoom in, but then I spend more time moving the screen around to try to read something.

Maybe it’s my phone, or maybe it’s the web pages I’m visiting, but I just don’t have the patience to deal with it. Unless I have to perform an emergency lobotomy, I probably will only get about $1.50 worth of services a month from this phone. I’m still looking for a good news site that I can easily read on the tiny little screen made for Smurfs. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
