Could you live without your phone?


If I want to listen to music, I'll grab my phone. If I want to snap a photo, I'll grab my phone. If I want to ask someone a quick question when they live on the other side of the world, I'll grab my phone. Even this post began on my phone. There appears to be a pattern, doesn't there?

Inspired by Panasonic's huge range of phones as well as Adele's glorious new song (I'm not even joking, look at this after you've read this post) I'm asking you a question: could you live without your phone?

As a blogger, my phone is so important to me. Back in the day, I'd go to book events and have to rely on my memory and a camera the size of a brick to document it all. I didn't even have the option of live-tweeting, shock horror. Nowadays, I consider my phone to be an integral part of my blog. It used to be an even bigger part of my YouTube channel as I used to film on it.

It's important for school, too. If I can't log in on my laptop, there's an app for that. How great is that? At the risk of sounding like an old lady, TECHNOLOGY THESE DAYS. It's so interesting how things evolve - I used to be able to get by just fine with my massive Nokia and a good ol' game of Snake, but now I would genuinely struggle to get about my day-to-day life without a smartphone. I'm so glad I was born when I was, because I'm not sure how I could have lived. Take my mum, for example; she couldn't use Google when she was doing her homework because it didn't exist yet. And we used to listen to tapes. We used to use floppy discs. We used to have to wait a week or two for photos to develop. Now we don't have a need for any of that because it can all be done on what is essentially a small piece of white and grey metal. Mind = blown.

As much as I hate to admit it, I rely hugely on my phone and I can barely cope when it dies and I can't get to a charger. Admittedly, I probably could live without it (because, hey, books exist) but... I wouldn't want to.

  1. Me too Amber! I used to be so nonchalant when it came to technology and the internet. Nowadays I become so obsessed that I get easily bored without any WiFi or internet connection. I feel like I couldn't live without it anymore. What a very thought provoking post Amber.

  2. As soon as I saw the title to this post I was like,

    "No."

    Haha! I use my phone to speak to my friends in South Africa and I love browsing Instagram and Twitter on there, as well as taking photos. :)
