I have a Samsung that is too smart, too

I once called a student and texted my sister with gibberish all while I was dancing and without ever taking my phone out of my pocket (front). And it never rang or buzzed or told me I'd done those things.
With my phone, in order to figure out some of its quirks, I had to sit down and spend some time over coffee, discussing it. There weren't always kind words, but eventually, I got a deeper understanding of how it thought and reacted to my inadvertent actions that I was unaware of. We get along great now.
I tend to hang onto my phones for years and years, until they decide it's time to retire, so it's important to me to understand them.
