A Tough Week is Best Forgotten

My Bucket list is not for the faint-hearted

  • Replacing a Defunct Metro-card
  • Sleep depravity
  • Civil road works outside the last apartment and now this New apartment?
  • Reclaiming Tax Refunds Process and Owed Monies
  • Finally, the Mobile Packs up and goes Dead on-screen display!

Whooee!

ACCEPT THE UNEXPECTED: Words of Encouragement for Families

Dream on Chris, dream on. Murphy’s law right?

Reflecting on issues relating to my mobile, whoever expects it to stop working, especially when you need it the most, last night it suddenly flickered and the screen went blank, nothing was going to change that seems, even with my somewhat technical expertise it was not going to bend to my attempts or whims, out came the pliers and surgical knife…. oh bloody hell no!.

Surprisingly guess what, I was able to receive calls and strangely enough accept them without screen display?

The Twilight Zone. well, I wasn’t about to complain about that upside to this. Yippee!! .technology has gone mad with positive results, how unique.

 

ANOTHER UNWANTED AND UNEXPECTED COST NOW?

The need to invest in a new phone was not what I wanted but evidently not a choice anymore, it was a crucial need to survive in china with payments and internet needs these years, so out came the laptop and the Hunt was ON. running the gauntlet of offers, discounts, and special delivery options

 

BUYING A SIMPLE MOBILE DEVICE

~ Samsung A70s is my smart choice

So a new phone online was ordered after scanning through a selected few on the Chinese equivalent of E-bay and Amazon B2C site.

My choices were QUICKLY RESEARCHED as i felt pressured to sleep after a damn long day, time really was not on my side.

So the following Mobiles I managed to narrow down following my brief reviews

  • Samsung a70 and a70s
    Huawei 10 +
    Samsung nova 7se
    Samsung galaxy a90

Forget Apple Phones, outrageously overpriced and has a life cycle as any other device on the market is my rationale, though the argument could be you by cheaper you pay more in the end, hmmm, doesn’t convince me, I expect that must be an apple promotional speech

Apple’s Quality you can’t argue, but cheaper is my stance today, and Android it will be, bugger it!

 

SELECTING YOUR MARKET PHONE

Man, I never appreciate as I do now, this could be so involved, so much to consider:

Like:

    1. screen size ~ pixel types and graphics modes
    2. battery life ~ power usage
    3. Reliability and  overall aesthetics

 

The list goes on into infinity, I only want to buy the bloody thing not eat it or hang it on The wall like a Picasso painting, Do I?

Finally I went for the Samsung A70’s, enough of the time-wasting I have dreams to catch up on people.

The specs ticked all the boxes and though not a ”gamer powered mobile type” it was more than well equipped for my uses

 

HOORAY!

Bought and Paid for by my Lovely Girl. I expect it to arrive at my apartment Tomorrow 9th May, to be precise, afternoon

I have tons to get through tomorrow and a phone is a must especially as everything in china is geared up for electronic payment and apps, it’s incredible how in fact we need these devices, perhaps it’s more to do with my circumstances or is it also worldwide now
