Note 8 – A Week In

First off, how about an unboxing video?

Now, after a week of having the Note 8 what’s my present verdict?

I love it.

I don’t know if it’s due to the fact that I haven’t had a new phone since the Note 3, the fact that it’s leaps and bounds an upgrade, or if Note 8 was the exact phone I’d been waiting for, but it’s perfect for my needs.

How do I use a smartphone?

It’s a communication device, plain and simple.

My top apps are:

Yes, I use other apps (like Facebook on rare occasion) but these are the top four.

Have my habits changed since getting the Note 8 at all?

Not really, except I do find myself taking more pictures. The Note 8 camera is fantastic and I think has made Redflare question if it wasn’t my previous phone’s camera (Note 3) that was the culprit of at least 25% of my bad pictures.

I can’t blame the equipment fully, I totally admit to not being a very good photographer.

I do find myself really appreciating the new gif making capabilities.

Record a video, convert it to a gif!

Draw a gif!

I drew that heart for Newbie while at the bus stop. We were waving at each other through the window. I loved seeing her face light up: Daddy drew her a heart!

It was a long-needed upgrade, and I have no regrets a week in. I look forward to this being my handy little gadget for another four or five years.

Grandma’s First Birthday Gift

What do you get your mother as a first birthday present ever?

A photo catchup book.

Redflare helped pick out and arrange the pictures to help catch up on 35 years of lost moments and pictures. A heavy task.

I think the tears of joy show that it was well received. 😉

Lice Battle

I think we’re still missing one or two things that we used during this epic battle. Scissors and a nit pick come to mind.

It’s finally over though, and we emerge victorious.

Next year, we’ll ask Newbie to not hug everyone on the last day of school. We’re pretty sure that’s how we got it in the first place.
