Find the right phone

Mobile phones have become the centre of our world in many ways. We use them to read, play a game, shop, stay connected, check our email, navigate, pay for things, look up information, check our calendars and tick off our to-do lists. We also use them to keep track of Cass' glucose levels, alert us to lows and highs and help us out with carb counting. It's potentially the most vital piece of technology we own (other than Cass' insulin pump).

We currently each have a Samsung Galaxy. We often take photographs with our phones and the great cameras of the Galaxy series won us over. And there's the added bonus of the S7 and S8 being waterproof which is very convenient on wet days outdoors.
