Upstairs Downstairs

My cell is on its last legs, it's slowly dying. It's not that it doesn't work, it's just slow and uncooperative. So the real question now is: "To upgrade or downgrade?".
Think about it. In today's world, it is a legitimate question or even a state of mind one can arrive to after living along side a smart phone. Do I stay in touch and available 24/7, while damaging my concentration at work and my real life relations or, I downgrade, get of the grid, thus improving my real life connections while maybe loosing my spot within the online society on the way?
It seems like we got to a point in which we have to make some decisions. Where do we go from here? Do we submerge ourselves into online leaving (which we already do) or completely detach ourselves from it? And is it really a black and white question?
I seem to be able to do both. That is, staying online and "connected" while enjoying real life connections and experiences, but for how long? One can not live in a vacuum. And there is another issue, I do love gadgets. So... I will sign off now, I guess you will know my decision soon enough.
