Last week I decided to test the most secretive, hotly anticipated smartphones on earth in a place where there was no danger of them being recognized or damaged or both: Disneyland.
This review comes via Matthew Panzarino on Techcrunch, and it’s full of stuff that non-nerds and nerds alike will find interesting — mainly, how the damn thing works in a real-life, not-going-to-sit-here-and-run-Geekbench-scores-or-some-such-garbage way. That also leads to my favorite passage of any review ever:
While we’re talking specs for a second, I have a confession to make: I don’t love technology.
I think that the ‘pure’ love of technology is somewhat pathological in the culture that TechCrunch often covers. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.
But what I do love is what technology, when it works in concert and for our benefit, can accomplish. Sometimes that’s curing diseases or enabling the impaired. And sometimes it’s as simple as capturing that perfect ‘daddy’s shodurs’ selfie.
