Last night I was going through all my photos on my phone and realized that I enjoy taking photos and love the fact that I have a gadget that can be available all the time for any spare of the moment photo opportunity. For almost 2 months I have been using a demo phone from Verizon to aide me in my foodie moments of the day or even events that I get to cover. What phone have I been using of late?
Introducing Samsung Galaxy S5, an Android phone that easily fits the palm of my hand and easy to find since it is surrounded in a beautiful white casing. Even though our family have been devoted Verizon carriers for almost 6 years, Verizon offered me to try the 4G LTE network which is considered to be the fastest and most reliable in the US. What does this mean? It means that this new network is able to function at faster peak speeds allowing for improved streaming at greater capacity! Take a look at this model:
Now how did Samsung Galaxy S5 work for me and where did it go? I was all over the place with this phone and I really did not ever have a problem with its speed. I was always able to connect to the web anywhere I went. I was able to post pictures to all my social media platforms during events. One of the events I covered as a Verizon foodie or #VZWFoodies were the Vendy Awards that were held in Philly. They were very interesting as I have never attended a food truck event like it before especially to judge which was the best.
This Samsung has traveled well and for the foodie that I am, I loved the phone camera as it posted really well on Instagram with clear photos! We cooked a bit while in Houston visiting our family and we also visited a lot of our favorite restaurants especially some good BBQ and Mexican food. I am convinced that the speed of my connection is definitely faster and is great when Wifi is available. I really did not have any issues with the phone at all. Check out my photos:
Curious as to what other phones use the newer and faster XLTE connection? According a recent article, nearly all of the devices Verizon Wireless sells, including the newest DROID devices, Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 and Note 3, and the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, are XLTE Ready when purchased. Today, more than 35 percent of all devices operating on the Verizon Wireless network can take direct advantage of the added capacity that AWS provides.
