Back to School: How to choose a smartphone that’s best in class – and a contest!


I was fortunate enough to sit down with @WinstonSih, well-known digital correspondent, who helped me create our latest back to school post below. Check it out:

Back to school for many means heading back to the hallways with a new flashy phone.  With a growing number of available smartphone features, and new devices coming out every month, students have a wide variety of choices. Everyone’s back to school device and data needs are different. Maybe you’re off to university and looking for a phone to keep you social or you’re a parent purchasing an entry level phone for your child.

To make the process easy for you, I thought I’d share the three steps to ensure you are ready to head back to class with a smartphone in hand:

1)      Pick a device that suits your needs
It’s important to ask yourself: what will I use my smartphone for? This question is key in determining the features you want out of your device. For example:

  • If you’re looking to use your smartphone to watch sports, stream classroom lectures or read e-books, check out a device with a large HD screen. I suggest the LG G Flex that has a 6 inch curved HD Display or the Samsung GALAXY S5 with a 5.1 inch HD screen. Both can reach super fast speeds on Rogers LTE network so you can stream to your heart’s content with virtually no buffering or lag.
  • Students getting their first cellphones, or those that don’t need all the bells and whistles, should look for a simpler device. Two options I recommend include the Moto G LTE and the Nokia Lumia 635. Both phones offer impressive performance, but come at an affordable price.
  • A student who is always on the go from class, to the library, to the gym, and so forth needs a phone that can keep up. These active academics should look to the LG G3. With alightweight and anti-scratch body, the LG G3 is ideal for students on the move and comes with a long lasting removable battery that complements a busy schedule.

2)      Get your data
Having enough data is important to ensure you can use your device but given a tight student or family budget, data shouldn’t go to waste. Get a plan that maximizes the value of your data by sharing it across devices. With Rogers ShareEverything plans, for example, data pools range in size from 500 MB to 15 GB monthly, with the opportunity to add up 10 devices on a plan. Data sharing is ideal for students; the more devices you add, like your tablet, a roommate’s smartphone, or your parents’ devices, the lower the cost per device. Share Everything plans are also loaded with unlimited Canada-wide calling and messaging, call display and voicemail for each plan member.

3)      App it up
Once you’ve got your device, it’s time to personalize it even more. Apps are an excellent way to get even more out of your new phone. Here are my top three apps you should check out to help you when you’re back in class:


  • An app best for keeping notes and projects organized across all devices
  • Clip web articles, include handwritten notes, and snap photos to keep notes, projects and research with you all the time

SuperCard Flashcards

  • An easy way to study, the app provides multiple ways to create image or text flash cards
  • Provides three quiz types to help you prepare for upcoming mid-terms or exams

Google Drive

  • A simple way to have all your projects and notes within reach from any smartphone, tablet or computer
  • Awesome for syncing files, documents and presentations

Win two Nokia Lumia 635 before September 3rd:

To ensure, you’re back to school ready, we’re giving away two Nokia Lumia 635 devices to one lucky winner. We’re giving you two so you can use them on a ShareEverything plan; you can share data and features with your new roommate, a sibling, or your child. To enter, in 30 words or less, tell us in the space below how the Nokia Lumia 635 will be used when you/your child heads back to school.

How you can tune-up your device

Working at Rogers, I get a lot of questions from my friends about their smartphones. Recently, my good friend was telling me her device is really slowing down. Her battery isn’t holding a charge like it used to and the OS tends to freeze up. Like most of us, the thought of sending her phone out for repair induces panic; how can she even think about parting with her device?

If this sounds like you and your device, you’ll love our new, free, in-store service program – Device Tune-Up, that solves many of your smartphone issues on the spot.

Weekend Reading: Back to school tech, LG G3 reviews and #weddingsocialstats

Weekend readingIt’s Friday so check out the Weekend Reading below, as we explore tech in the classroom, share further thoughts on the LG G3 and learn how weddings are hashtag friendly.

Talking tech for back to school

 Nine days until most students pack their school bags and lunches, tie up their laces and head back to class. Leading up to the first day, many students are searching for their back to school tech that will help them both in and outside of the classroom. This week for example, we discussed how technology, access to the internet and use of a laptop, smartphone and tablet is enhancing our educational experiences. To further share how technology is being used by students, we also spoke with two of our Rogers social insiders, who shared how cable, internet, and mobile devices kept them afloat during their university years.

What folks are saying about the LG G3

The LG G3 continues to make positive impressions across the tech community. We discussed our favourite LG G3 features in a post earlier this month, but if you want to dive into the specs and capabilities a little more you can go two ways. Either check out this LG G3 video review on Youtube by Karl Conrad or read IT Nerd’s in-depth review here. Or if you’re really in the LG G3 mood, do both!

Tell us – do you have any LG G3 reviews to share?

Brides say ‘I do’ to social media

Summer is a busy time for weddings, so I thought we’d share some social stats around the social networking bride. A Mashable and survey revealed brides take to online to share their news; within hours of saying yes, 28 per cent of brides-to-be update their social media statues, while 24 per cent share the news the next day. 70 per cent of brides were already making plans on Pinterest, while 89 per cent use wedding planning apps to assist with making lists, counting down days, browsing gowns and more.

Hashtags are also becoming part of the new age wedding culture, with more than half of couples (55 per cent) using a wedding hashtag. Guests are encouraged to share their photos on social; with 68 per cent of brides wanting them posted in real-time.

Have you, or someone you know used social media or mobile apps to help plan a wedding? Share your experience below.

Back to School: Tech in university times

photo 2As we discussed in our last back to school post, technology continues to play a growing role in the classroom. We’ve learned, for example, that fifty-five per cent of students report using online services to help them write their papers; eighty per cent use social networks to help them study.

We wanted to truly understand the students of this generation, so we quizzed our Rogers social insiders to get their take on how tech influenced their day-to-day university student life. Meet, Cato Pastoll, who studied at the Richard Ivey School of Business and just launched Lending Loop, an online marketplace for Canadians to lend money to growing local businesses took on the challenge. And Rosalyn Gambhir (on the left) who studied Computer Engineering at Queen’s University in Kingston,  who shares her for love everything local, pretty, and techy in her blog.

What were the top ways you used your smartphone or tablet when you were away at school?

CP: There are so many examples. From tethering while away from home to do school projects, to watching my favourite sports teams on-the-go, and using the school’s mobile app to check my schedule, grades and any other school information. I also used it to connect with classmates and Google Docs helped us work collaboratively. As I was working part-time, my smartphone was also a great tool to keep on top of work emails and my ever-growing schedule.

RG: Being away for university, I used my smartphone to communicate with my friends back home but I also used it to plan study groups or coffee catch-up sessions. My reliable plan, with unlimited texting was key.

We know accessing the Internet is super important for students. How did you stay connected when at home, away from campus?

CP: I don’t think anyone could survive at university without an Internet connection. I shared mine with a roommate, we had a student package which gave us a lot of bandwidth, and allowed us to easily split the cost.  With Internet right in our home, we never had trouble doing our research, finalizing project stats…in addition of course to gaming and movie watching in our downtime.

RG: Being in university, the first year I resided in dorms while the last three years I choose to live in a house with five other girls. Internet was our saviour to the outside world as it allowed us to stay connected with our friends and parents back home, in addition to letting us be on top of our school work. It was convenient to have one service provider and split the bill every month – this turned out to be the most cost effective.

Cable is also an essential must-have for students. Did you and your roommates or friends have any TV show/movie/sport watching rituals?

CP: I watch Game of Thrones whenever it’s on. I’m also a really big soccer fan so I’d be up at 7:30AM every Saturday morning to watch all the games of the Premiere League. I needed to catch big sports events like the superbowl and playoffs – these games cannot be missed.

RG: In a house with five girls, cable was a must! We were big fans of TV shows - Doctor Who, Criminal Minds, The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries, and One Tree Hill –  we never missed one. Sometimes we went through TV marathons on lazy days and watched Veronica Mars, Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls​ and more. We made a point to share evenings together on Sundays, it was our girls bonding time!

Sometimes, your smartphone or your internet connection can be a life-saver. Have an example?

CP: I arrived at campus one day to hand in a paper that was due within 30 minutes! I realized that I had left it at home and was never going to make the deadline. Luckily, I keep all my files in my OneDrive so they are always stored in the cloud. Within minutes, I was able to download the file to my smartphone from OneDrive, correct any last minute mistakes using my mobile office application and then email it to the school printer. Without my smartphone I would have surely gotten an F.

RG: As a student, I sometimes procrastinated, particularly when there was fun and games for distraction. Although school work should have come first, handing in an assignment at 11:58PM, when it was due at midnight, did happen from time to time. With no time to spare, the internet and a fast reliable connection was my life saver, especially during crunch time.

To ensure you’re heading back to school with a new device in hand, Rogers is offering new and current customers up to $100 off the hottest smartphones when activated on 2-year Share Everything plans. Share Everything plans lets students share wireless data between up to 10 wireless devices, like roommates and family members, to maximize data usage and bring down costs,

Students headed back to university or college, can also learn about our budget-friendly internet and cable bundles to share with your roommates here.

Tell us, do you have any tech tips for university or college students?

Back to School: How technology helps in the classroom

shutterstock_124814620Back to school is not what it used to be. Laptops have replaced three-ring binders; many back-breaking textbooks are now available as e-books; notes are written on digital screens; and schedules are tracked using smartphones. For this generation, the end of summer means it’s time to check out the latest tech to get the most of your school year, whether you’re heading back to elementary school or off to university.

A recent report by Price Waterhouse Coopers showed Canadians are ready for a digital education, one that incorporates tablets, laptops, smartphones and more. Over eighty per cent of us believe technology is a means to better prepare students for the future; with over three quarters of us seeing it as a tool to make education more engaging.

Access to the internet and use of a laptop, smartphone and tablet is already enhancing educational experiences, in and out of the classroom:

To ensure you’re heading back to school with the latest tech, Rogers is offering new and current customers up to $100 off the hottest smartphones when activated on 2-year Share Everything plans. Share Everything plans lets students share wireless data between up to 10 wireless devices, like roommates and family members, to maximize data usage and bring down costs.
