Sprint LG G4 is a Mom’s Dream SmartPhone: Here’s Why – Frugal Novice

Sprint LG G4 is a Mom’s Dream SmartPhone: Here’s Why

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.

I take tons – I mean TONS – of pictures. The advent of the smartphone was a happy day for me, because I love having a camera with me wherever I go. And with the Sprint LG G4, I can have a really amazing camera with me to capture high-quality shots I want. The LG G4 is the first smartphone from Sprint with a total of 24 megapixels of crisp photo clarity – a 16MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. I can remember a time not long ago when dedicated digital cameras couldn’t provide that quality!

Here are a couple of pics I snapped with my LG G4 – and a couple Brian shot, too, when I gave him the chance to play with it:

Obligatory selfie. The front-facing camera on the G4 takes great pics!

Lots of wedding magazines. I’m a magazine designer at my day job & have a wedding magazine coming up, so I get to look through wedding magazines for research. Rough part of the job. :)

So, clearly the camera is one reason the G4 is the perfect phone for moms… another is the awesome Drive First app. If you’re a mom to teens, you’ll adore this app that helps take away the temptation to text or chat on the phone while driving.

DriveFirst

 

Sprint Drive First is a FREE app available on the phones like theSprint LG G4 which sends calls to voicemail and silences email and text alerts when a vehicle reaches 10mph. Newly updated features include ‘personal feedback’ and ‘parenting mode’ which help track miles driven, and lock or enable certain apps. I think this is a great app for teens and adults alike to help serve as a reminder that your phone can wait until you’ve stopped driving.

The app ties in perfectly to the ThumbWars campaign going on right now. DoSomething.org and Sprint are taking a unique approach to prevent people from texting and driving. Now in its fifth year, Thumb Wars encourages young people to use the power of their thumbs in a fun and engaging way to prevent their friends from texting and driving.

If you don’t understand just how important this campaign is, here are some facts from Sprint that break it down for you:

Here’s how Thumb Wars works:

  • Sign up at ThumbWars.org and receive two pairs of yellow anti-texting thumb socks.
  • Pick a friend or loved one you know who texts and drives and share the socks with them in a surprising way.
  • Snap a pic of yourself and your friend wearing the thumb socks and send it back to DoSomething.org
  • You can also share important texting-and-driving stats (available onThumbWars.org) to educate friends.
