> I don't have the need to pull it from the pocket all the time. > What exactly do people do different than this with their phones?

I went to a national park with my GF to watch the recent Perseid. There was no phone signals there. Except for the map, I didn't need it so I didn't care. At multiple times though I reached for my phone to Google questions we were asking ourselves, on nature and space. I guess in a way it pushed us to think more about the subject instead of getting an instant answer, so in a ways it's good, but we never got any actual answers, we just forgot about theses questions though, which I don't feel is good...

It's silly, but I do carry around a notepad so I can make a list of things to look up later.
