I Ditched My Phone, and Found Truth in a Tablet
On using a tablet for a month, and what I learned — out now in The Spectator
“being too large to pop in a pocket and unable to take phone calls, they can’t replace the way you use a phone. To most that’s a pretty big problem. For me that was the appeal.
And so, for a month, I turned off my phone and put it away in a drawer, replacing it with a tablet. Technically, there were actually two tablets, which I swapped between: last year’s Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra — the most popular large Android tablet — and Lenovo’s brand new Tab Extreme.
Both tablets have flagship phone prices, clean designs, novel features, great speakers and fantastic screens; but most crucially, these are among the biggest tablets ever made. And when you’re using a 14.5” device, you can’t doomscroll; every action is far more purposeful.”
