If there’s anything I’m consistent at, it’s not being satisfied with my phone! I recently upgraded from my Pixel 5 to the Pixel 6 Pro, but after using it for a few days, I realized it was just too big for me and ordered the Pixel 6. The 6 is only 0.3 inches smaller than the 6 Pro, but it’s just enough to make a significant difference for me.

A new year means a time for people to have an excuse to reinvent themselves.

After trying out the Pixel 2 at the end of last year and really disliking it (which you can read about here), I knew I needed a different phone, but didn’t know what direction I was headed in. In typical Lauren fashion, a new opportunity was presented to me. An opportunity with a keyboard and long battery life (without paying $29 to replace the battery). Read More »
With all my back-and-forth switching from BlackBerry to Android to BlackBerry to iPhone to Android to iPhone again, I’ve come to realize what I want in a phone doesn’t exist in one device. So, if I was going to create my ideal phone, here are the features it would have:Read More »
