So, on Wednesday I broke my phone. Big time. It's had a crack right down the back of it for a while, and on the way to my grandmas, it just...fell. The screen has a huge crack that goes completely vertical. Now, I could work with that. However, while dropping, my headphones snapped off inside. And when I say my headphone jack snapped, I mean like...it looks pretty unsalvageable. So, not only is my phone unable to listen to stuff anymore (One of the ONLY reasons I own a phone), my headphones are also fucked. I only use my phone for facebook/whatsapp/audible/spotify, so I'm pretty upset.
However, I guess there's a silver lining- I can buy a new phone!!
Now, if you recognise me on here at all, you might know I'm planning to leave the UK in 2020 for either Japan or Korea. I'm actually waiting for results on the JET programme, which is another 8 weeks off. Woof! So, if I get there, I'm gonna want a quality phone. I guess here are my needs:
- An excellent quality camera so I can document my travels and life abroad
- An above average battery life, for if I'm needing to use maps/translate to get about
- Dual Sim (This is probably the most important one, as I wanna keep my UK phone number, and my new one overseas)
Now, I've looked around, and spoke to a few friends. Here's the phones that are at the top of my hitlist:
I wanna stay on the android/google ecosystem, because I'm so deep into it. I can probably spend somewhere between £275-£350. If anyone has any experience, or any other ideas, please please hook me up!
