I’m sure the rest of you are just biding your time until you’re off for Christmas, so I’m going laid back today and tackling the age-old question:Â What does an HR person carry in their purse/pocket for a cell phone?Â
Earlier this month I had to break down and get another phone. My Droid2 was my go-to for over two years, and it finally stopped charging altogether. I love technology, but I’m also easy to please, so I’m not switching out every time a new item hits the shelf. I started researching and talking with friends so I could educate myself on the best options available.
- The battery life needs to be good. I hate using it at a conference and having to recharge every 3-4 hours of heavy use.
- Needs to be Android. No Apple for me. And BlackBerry? Don’t make me laugh.
- It should take good pictures and video so I can fulfill parent law #24-everything your kids do is worth documenting.
So I wandered around the Verizon store and put my hands on the lovely Droid Razr Maxx.
Its Â main selling point is that the battery is the largest of pretty much any phone on the market, and boy can you tell it! I can use it for 24 hours of normal talking, texting, surfing, etc. and still have 40-50% of the battery left. Not too shabby.
The pictures are pretty snazzy compared with my old phone as well. I am hoping to shoot more video content for the blog once we get into the new year. I’ve missed the video content and I think it’s a great tool for personalizing the content here for you guys.
Plus it’s an Android phone, which means it syncs seamlessly with my Google account and other services. I liked my previous phone, but I had no idea what I was missing until I moved to the Razr Maxx.
Okay, enough geeky talk from me. What is your
weapon phone of choice?
What’s your tool of choice? iPhone? BlackBerry? Android? Something else?
