Have we hit Smartphone Fatigue?


I just got in on the Essential Phone sale this week and waited excitedly for two days for UPS to drop off the phone.

I finally got the phone this afternoon and ripped into the packaging and turned it on, oohing and aahing at this sleek slab of technology. But then I turned it on and started setting it up and the giddiness drained away. At this point it was just another phone. My current phone is a Moto X Pure Edition 2015, so it’s been a while since I’ve had a new phone. But I’m no longer blown away by the latest and greatest. I’ve checked out the iPhone X and Galaxy S9 in person and they haven’t caused me to drool either.
