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 for diabetes - to keep track of blood 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).

Samsung Galaxy

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. Samsung is a reputable brand that builds phones that last that have great specifications and all the features we look for in a smartphone.

Phones with a flair

Some phones have a special feature that makes them stand out from the crowd, like a large screen, long battery life, top notch camera, extreme ruggedness. We often have one of these because they do one thing we only need intermittently very well. We recommend them as a secondary phone in a heartbeat and for focused users invested in one specific feature, they're a reliable primary device and can be a perfect fit.
