Remembering Joseph’s LG Smartphone

On Tuesday evening, my old LG smartphone froze up just minutes after I left my computer room for the evening.  It would only show a red Verizon screen whenever I would try to fix it, but sadly, it would not show anything else after that.  When I first noticed it that evening, I experienced every emotion in the book at that time.  I was sad, angry and hopeful at the same time.

The next morning, I tried to stop my LG phone from freezing up, but I was not successful in doing so.  Later that morning, I was able to start saying good-bye to my LG smartphone after three years.  Then, after I purchased my new Motorola smartphone, my LG smartphone “died.”  I still have it here at home … and I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of it anytime soon.

I will miss using this LG smartphone regularly.  I was able to take it almost everywhere with me.  Whenever I would go to Downtown Pittsburgh, I would usually leave it at home.  That way, I would give it a break for a few hours at a time.  Other than that, I almost always took it everywhere with me.

I was able to write some blog posts about it over the past three years or so … and I’d like to show them to you now.

Joseph’s LG Smartphone (September 29, 2014 – December 13, 2017)

On December 13, 2017, I purchased a new smartphone from Motorola. I was prompted to buy the new smartphone after my LG smartphone started freezing up just a few hours earlier. I had owned the phone on the left for just over three years.
