Top Stories smartphones
As Christmas approaches, we’re seeing a glut of sub-$100 Android phones. Vodafone rolled out a $99 model from Huawei last week, and now Telstra-owned Boost Mobile is selling a similar Alcatel OneTouch model for $99.
So I spent the whole of last week travelling around Australia on the Note 4 Roadtrip, seeing if I could do my job using only a smartphone. What lessons did I learn and how can you adapt those strategies?
After my post yesterday discussing my experience typing on the Note 4 and selecting text, several commenters asked why I wasn’t using the S Pen stylus for that task. In truth, it had been a little neglected, so I set myself to properly exploring its text input possibilities.
I was so pleased with the fact that I didn’t have to pull a laptop out of my bag at Newcastle Airport that I completely forgot I had a smartwatch on my wrist. My phone and wallet went in the tray, my bag and tray went on the conveyer and I stepped towards the security scanner without a care in the world.
