Why Not Give Someone A New Phone For Christmas?

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Fans Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

It's that time of year again, a time when a lot of people buy stuff for each other. If you watch football (and I am assuming you do), you are being coniditioned to believe it's totally normal to spend like $25,000 on a brand new car for someone.

So let's dial it back and assume you aren't Joe Flacco and you can't just drop that kind of cash because you feel like it. You know what you probably can do, though? Buy your loved ones a kick-awesome new Droid Maxx from Verizon. For $199.99 you can get rid of most of your other portable technology (re-gifting!) and consolidate all your business and leisure in one place. Do you watch Netflix and stuff? You're going to love the huge screen and excellent sound quality. Do you wish a picture of a bunny came up every time you got a text message? You can do that too! Do you do… business… stuff? Well, there's probably an app for that, as the Google Play store is a thousand times better than Apple's "You can only run what we like you to run" type store.

Ever been out somewhere at night and need to get in touch with someone? Uh oh, you have an iPhone! The battery has been dead since lunch! You don't get to use your phone for it's only actual necessity and now you're stranded in Wilkinsburg in the middle of the night. Best of luck to you. Wouldn't it be nice to have a phone with a battery that lasts more than six hours? Guess what: YOU CAN. Get yourself and your family in on this action.

Note: This was not a statement prepared by Verizon in any capacity. I really actually like my phone this much and honestly encourage everyboy to get one.
