Most of you have probably already gone through more than one smartphone by now. You've experienced the joy of getting a brand new one, using it for the first time, sharing memories with it, and the agony of finally having to bid goodbye when it conks out in the end.
The thing is, when we recall the times we had with our phones, we (naturally) tell the tale using our own perspective as owners/users. Now here's an interesting idea: How about showing and telling the life of a phone through the eyes of the one thing that understands it better than us, namely, itself?
"What have you been smoking, FHM? You do know it's an inanimate object with no eyes, right? Lay off the weed, bruh," might be what some of you are saying right about now. There, there. We understand but, the thing is, obtaining your phone's POV in telling its life is not impossible.
This is what New York City-based filmmaker Paulo Trillo proved when he created a thought-provoking video called The Life & Death of an iPhone, a seven-minute short that shows exactly what its title says. It gives an interesting look at the experiences your smartphone goes through, and the emotions we display in each one, like when...
We first opened the box it called home.
We showed it off to our friends.
We did embarassing stuff, just because we thought nobody else can see us.
We made new friends...
...or almost had our asses handed to us.
We almost got victimized by snatchers.
We displayed our dad bod need f0r self-glorification.
These GIFs are but a very small part of the short video, and we bet you'll have an interesting time watching the whole thing so, here it is:
