ZTE Maven - An Affordable #Android Cellphone #Giveaway



The new, affordable, ZTE Maven came to AT&T recently and I was sent one to check out and share my thoughts about it with you!

First, out of the box, it feels like a substantial handset. It looks good and my tweens were instantly ON me checking it out.

This cellphone is priced at $59.99 and is part of AT&T's Go Phone lineup. At that price, it is perfect for those who want an Android device, but do not want to shell out hundreds of dollars. It also makes a great device to get if you damage your phone and need a replacement quickly (which is what actually happened to me!).



I will start out saying that I put very few apps on this phone. I used it sparingly. It only has 8GB of storage space with half of that used for system memory.

There is the ability to add an extra SD card to increase storage.

I personally think this is a HUGE bonus. Many higher end phones do not have this option and it is one that really makes me consider a phone. With so many wonderful Android apps.... not to mention photos that are taken, memory space is huge. So grab an extra micro-SD and pop it into this phone!

I was very impressed with the battery. With a  2,100mAh battery, I was able to use it for two days without recharging. Most of the time it was just in locked standby mode, and I did not use it for much web browsing or gaming but I was still extremely impressed. 







The camera is one area in which I was a little disappointed in. I understand this is an inexpensive phone, but most people with smartphones want to use it as a camera. The camera has a 5MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP front camera.  While there are nice optional controls, such as pro-mode, the pictures just leave a lot to be wanted.

As you can see in this photo of my son, Nolyn, the quality is grainy and there is a huge loss of detail. This was taken on the auto setting. 

When I attempted to take photos of moving objects (kittens) I found it impossible to get a decent picture. All that I was able to capture was a blur.




The Maven from ZTE runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is compatible with AT&T's LTE 4G network. The ZTE Maven that I have says it is running Android 5.1 currently, though.

Phone calls are good quality, I had no issue with them whatsoever. The signal strength did seem a little deceptive. I would often show full bars, but then I couldn't make a call- and when I looked at my other AT&T phone it wouldn't have service.

Overall, I think this is the perfect phone for tweens/teens or those who do not want to shell out a ton of cash for a phone, just know it's limitations and love this phone for what it is! The value is there for the price.

Miles from Tomorrowland: Let's Rocket!



We were super excited to receive a copy of Disney's Miles from Tomorrowland: Let's Rocket for review!

The kids have loved this show, and we've watched the DVD many times, enjoying it each time.

In the words of our son, RJ, the show is about "a kid named Miles, obviously, who has a family named the Collistos. He blast boards, and plays a game like soccer.  The show is about Miles and the society called TTA and how Miles' family goes on adventures and fixes stuff".

The show is easy for children to relate to, and explores subjects like disappointment and responsibility.

Migraines Suck! #Stopain #Sponsored #Coupon #Migraine #MigraineRelief




Migraines suck. I know... my mother suffered from migraines, I suffer from migraines, and my husband suffers from migraines. I have dealt with them in some form for my entire life.

My migraines seem to be more frequent when I am pregnant, unfortunately...  a point in time when there is very little medical relief due to the possibility of harming the unborn baby.

My husband, however, has several a week.  This can mean, at times, an entire week filled with pain. Migraines can last days... and it's a pain that ruins everything in life at that time. If you're reading this, you probably understand. 

If you, or a loved one, suffer from migraines Stopain Migraine  is a topical pain reliever that has been beneficial for many migraine sufferers. Applied topically to the back of the neck and behind each ear, you can use it alone or in combination with other migraine medications without fear of drug interactions. Unlike other migraine medications, it can be used up to 4x daily. 
 
This gel is easy to apply. I have been applying it for my husband, but I'm sure he could do it himself. You simply pump one pump (The product’s airless pump technology ensures precision measured dosing each and every time) of the gel on your fingertips and apply to the back of the neck and behind the ears. You can also watch this helpful video if you would like to learn more about the application.

A recent observational study of the effectiveness of Stopain Migraine was conducted by the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University. Based on the results of the study, renowned neurologist Dr. Stephen Silberstein and his team concluded that participants experienced a significant improvement in migraine pain. 

My husband found that it really did help significantly. One of the most difficult things for him is waiting for medication to start working. That pain that you have to suffer through before the relief comes can be extremely intense. Stopain Migraine works quickly, it starts working as soon as it is applied, and when used with his prescription migraine medications Stopain Migraine's quick acting effects allowed for a more comfortable time period until the prescription medications can kick in. This was by far the biggest benefit for my husband.

We don't know what triggers my husband's migraines, so there isn't anything we can do to change something to make them less frequent, so in the mean time we just have to be on top of the pain with pain medication.

LIMITED TIME OFFER! Print a $3-off coupon for savings on Stopain Migraine topical pain relieving gel for migraine relief. Available now at Walmart! Click here to print the coupon.

How about a giveaway? Each week until July 17th, two winners will each win one $50 Walmart gift card! You can enter here.
