New Phone, Who Dis? #TeamPixel 5a With 5G

We have been Team Pixel for years. I have owned the Google Pixel 1, 2, 3a and now the 5a with 5G. I think these are terrific phones that won’t break your bank. Even the Pixel 6 is priced well for both versions.

Android is a great phone OS with a lot of features including a rock-solid camera and the ability to use all of the Google products such as Drive and Photos at your fingertips. I am impressed with the 5a so far and look forward to capturing and sharing my world and sharing it with you with this new phone.

If you haven’t heard of Google Fi which is their mobile phone service, check it out, The pricing and features are really good.

First-World Problem – Factory Reset of My Google Pixel

The good thing about this is that it clears up any issues you might have been having and it can speed up performance on your phone. At bare minimum power cycle your phone once a week. Let’s hope I don’t have to do this again for a while.

Upgrade Your Perceptions – Android


The best update/upgrade to iOS is to get an Android phone. Apple isn’t the only game in town and Google is great at the stuff you need to do online and on your phone. My next phone will be an Android. I am a fan of what I can do with my Chromebook and Android phone. It’s good to think differently. Upgrading your perception can be a good thing.

I started using Prisma today after hearing about it and seeing others use it. Normally I don’t filter my pix, even on Instagram. This app will let me tell my story from a different perspective. It’s available for Android and that iPhone thingy.
