I asked what the negative side of smartphones was recently and what things had went wrong, but now I want to know about when your smartphone has most impressed you!

I remember the first time I used swype and I thought that was pretty awesome. And the first time I took a photo while I was walking ha these were big moments! The first time I installed Google Reader and started reading all these news stories every morning was pretty exciting, and the first time I installed Dropbox and discovered how easy it was to take all my stuff everywhere was pretty sweet too!

We all complain about phone issues from time to time, but sometimes they are just awesome! What's your favorite smartphone memory?

My fondest memory is when I got my Galaxy S3, my very first Android smartphone. It was a moment of love at first sight and I daintely opened the box and pulled out, and turned it on it super excited to have my very own Android smartphone!

Later, I was super excited to discover swype, which is a gift from above, camera features, the many amazing apps in the Play Store and all the ways that it helps me stay organized!

Then, my Galaxy S3 was stolen after going to see Wolf on Wallstreet (worst...moment....ever) and I was sooo sad. But then I won a Nexus 5 after a company treasure hunt, which was amazing! Sadly I dropped it and broke the display, but thankfully it is still working. With the Nexus 5, I really got into Google Now and using Speech-to-text for writing out all of my messages and emails when at home, absolutely amazing. Plus asking Google to set a timer for me, find me routes, look up people....though Google is as creepy as hell sometimes, I love it.

My fondest memory is playing a three-month game of Tetris on the London tube on my way to and from work every day (with lots of pausing).

It was a daily ritual I went through that kept me sharp because the game started insanely fast every time, so there was no room for error. It's the single longest game I've ever played on a phone and probably still my favorite.

I eventually decided it would never end and ended it. Still wonder if I could still be playing that game today...
