I've bucked the trend of owning a smartphone for as long as I could. I never really needed a smartphone & there was no justification for paying extra money for one. Friends and family would be constantly flip-phone shaming me but I would stand my curmudgeon ground and tell them to get off my lawn!
But in 2016 I finally got my first smartphone. The reason I caved was because I joined a fantasy hockey pool & having a smartphone would allow me to make moves/transactions/trades when I was away from my home computer. So I ditched my trusty LG flip phone that I had for 5+ years and got a smartphone.
Well....fast forward not even two years later and I am on my THIRD smartphone.
I don't feel so smart owning these...
...and I haven't won any money in my fantasy hockey pool.
