As a travel blogger a smartphone is absolutely necessary. You can catch a shot, edit it and share it in 60 seconds. Seems simple doesn’t it? I thought so. For the last two years I have been blogging I have used my Iphone on the road with AT&T as a mobile carrier. Recently I partnered with Verizon on their #bettermatters campaign and I am here to tell you do NOT just need a smartphone.
#Bettermatters to me means not settling for average. It means staying connected whenever and wherever I am. Since switching to Verizon I have seen a significant change in my data speeds. This means I spend less time on my phone and more time doing what I do best! As a solo female traveler my parents and family feel comfortable knowing I have service in remote locations. Efficiency and safety matters!
In Thailand I took the most amazing shots but guess what? No one knew because my overseas data package was just too damn expensive for me to afford it. My new Google Pixel and Verizon data plan allows me to share in real time. That means no more uploading 5 pictures trying to share my amazing pictures at one time. Your data should be just as reliable as the phone you are using. Why spend 700+ on a phone to have mediocre data service? Your experience matters. The next time you’re ready to buy a phone remembers #bettermatters. For everyone who is enlightened and ready to switch over Verizon also has a Trade in Device program!
