As you all have come to realize I seem to have become the technology guru, here are Detroit Mommy Bloggers! I love it! People are always asking me what gadget I have now. Sometimes, they are jealous, other times they are in shock with some of the new, and innovative devices Verizon Wireless has. Recently, I had a Samsung Galaxy Note® 3. This device was packed with tools to make your life easier, this Android™ smartphone features a full HD touchscreen, innovative S Pen™ and long–lasting battery. I was able to pair it with the Samsung Galaxy Gear™ (REVIEW FOUND HERE) smart watch and I was NEVER out of touch!

20140307_071855As I have learned and mentioned before Samsung is without a doubt my favorite brand of phone. I am never let down using them. The reception is always fantastic, which I know is partly due to Verizon! I am always satisfied! I am honestly in the market to upgrade and I have already told my husband to be prepared because I KNOW I want a Samsung! Just look at the perfect picture it is capable of taking! 


Verizon 4G LTE is America’s largest 4G LTE network and provides significantly increased speeds–up to 10 times faster than 3G–so you’re more productive and responsive. Download movies in minutes, photos in seconds, plus games, news and email attachments. 


  •  Take photos like a pro with a 13 megapixel camera.
  • Turn your phone into a Universal Remote. I did this, it was AWESOME and easy to figure out!! I always lose the remote – but never my phone!
  • Control your phone with your voice. Send messages, make calls and more without ever touching your phone. Perfect when driving and an emergency occurs.
