Oh yeah, the S6 ends up with a horrible battery life within a couple of years, I've seen many of them like that. I had the S8 almost 2 and a half years now, and I'm surprised that the battery hasn't gone bad yet. Normally they degrade big time within 2 years and only last about 2 hours.

I don't have nomophobia. I mean that, contrary to today's teenagers, I'm not a phone dependent. My mother commonly thought I'm a millennial, but this is false because I can use some older technology such as a Game Boy Advance SP, a mobile phone from 2000's, a landline... as well as writing a letter, send it to a mailbox...

I use mine for stuff like browsing the Internet and often for 2FA stuff also. There's that and also needing to contact people at times, they're my main reasons for needing my phone. I don't agree with people sitting there staring at their phones and being in a world of their own though, people try to have conversations and they're too obsessed with social media to listen.

Yeah, I use my mobile phone to see something new in Wikipedia (mainly what I'm interested) and in RayWiki. I also use my mobile phone to send messages in WhatsApp, call up, see the gallery of the images I have, check something in Microsoft Outlook... I never own neither an Instagram account nor a Netflix account because Instagram and Netflix are overrated. Unlike many teenagers, I'm not interested on celebrities such as Brad Pitt, the Duffer Brothers, Isabel Pantoja (the most overrated famous woman of Spain), Millie Bobby Brown...

I don't have any interest in the likes of Instagram either. I only use Facebook seldomly to contact people I know, and only use Twitter to check for news at times.

I have WhatsApp, but only for work-related chats with colleagues. That's because it's an encrypted messaging service that the head of our division encourages us to use. So my definition of a successful vacation is one where nobody WhatsApps me, which seems absurd to the people around me who also use it for personal stuff. :fou2:

I don’t use my phone for social media, that has never really caught my interest. Used FB for 2 years and dropped it. Rarely check Twitter or LinkedIn these days myself. Now Yelp and Discord, on the other hand... :oops2:
Life happens. Just gotta roll with it!
