I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received a Sprint device to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Being 40-something, I have seen a lot of changes in the way people communicate. We have gone from waiting at home for hours by a landline phone for an important call, to being attached to a cell phone 24/7 so we never have to miss a thing. We use smartphones for everything we do these days from booking family vacations, checking weather, watching television shows and staying in touch with family and friends near and far. It is amazing how much things have changed in the past 20 years.
As with most technology, every year advancements take place creating the latest and greatest, must have items. Smartphones are definitely no exception. I was recently sent the Sprint LG G4 smartphone for my review. I am new to the world of Androids, so to say it was intimidating at first would be an understatement. It felt like I was in the process of learning a new language that didn’t quite make sense. However, as it began to click with me, it became exciting!
The Sprint LG G4 is an amazing phone that is affordable for families, costing only $18 per month for 24 months with Sprint Lease. It has a large 5.5″ high definition touch screen with unbelievable clarity. The slightly curved back helps the phone to contour nicely into the palm of your hand, making texting, phone calls and surfing the web a breeze. Best of all, the Sprint LG G4 comes equipped with two cameras that are perfect for capturing all the moments life throws your way. The front camera (8MP) is perfect for snapping those selfies we all can’t seem to get enough of, while the rear-facing camera (16MP) does a gorgeous job of taking the shots we don’t want to miss.
Favorite Features of the Sprint LG G4 Smartphone Camera
- First and foremost, I love the clarity of the photos taken with the LG G4….unbelievable!!
- The ability to take photos using both the front-facing camera and rear-facing camera at the same time by selecting the dual option.
- A simple swipe across the screen can change the camera view from front-facing to rear-facing. Makes taking a selfie quick and easy!
- Photos are easily edited by using auto enhance, cropping and looks.
- Lastly, for the easiest and best looking selfie, use the sliding scale provided automatically on the screen to create your perfect complexion in every picture.
Teaching Safe Driving Habits
While smartphones have enhanced our lives by allowing for us to stay more connected, there are certain things we sometimes forget. Teaching safe driving habits to our children is one of those things. From the time our children are extremely small, they begin to learn from us. Whether it is for the good or the bad, kids start to pick up on the things we do, like texting and driving.
DID YOU KNOW?
A driver spends approximately 10% of their driving time outside their lane when texting?
When the time comes for our kids to get behind the wheel, we need to make sure they know to say “NO” to texting and driving. Teach them about the important texting and driving statistics that can be found at ThumbWars.org.
Sprint, together with DoSomething.org is in its fifth year of helping kids to spread the word to their friends about the dangers of texting and driving. Have children sign up to receive two pairs of yellow anti-texting thumb socks at ThumbWars.org. Then you guessed it…..have them share one pair of the thumb socks with a friend or family member that they know texts and drives.
After sharing about “Thumb Wars” with their friend, shoot a picture together while wearing the thumb socks and send it back to DoSomething.org. It’s a fun and encouraging way to share about an important message.
Sprint makes it even easier to help equip children and adults with what they need to stay safe when driving by downloading the free app, Sprint Drive First. Sprint Drive First detects when your car is in motion and sends automatic messages to incoming calls and texts letting them know you are on the road. It has customized settings that can create the perfect app for each individual.
Remember, when you are on the road there is nothing more important than your safety and the safety of your passengers. Behind the wheel?? Texting can wait!
