This week I bought myself an early Christmas present.
When we go away I use my 'phone camera to take photographs but I realised during our recent Tasmania trip that the quality is not that good. Our friend had a bigger and more recent model of 'phone with a better camera and the difference in photograph quality was very noticeable.
I took a look around our local suppliers for his model but it was just a little out of my price range, especially as I would seldom use it for making calls (due to my deafness). However, I eventually settled for the next model down. Slightly smaller screen but an improvement on the camera I have been using.
I was pleased to find out that it also comes with earphones so I am attempting to use these if I need to make a call, in case they help me hear better. It was only when I mentioned this to P he told me that my previous 'phone (one of his hand-me-downs) also came with earphones but he had never bothered to take them out of the box. Doh! If I had known that I may have used my old 'phone for calls as well as just WiFi and photographs.
Anyway, I have made one attempt to call our home landline using the earphones but the volume was not quite high enough. I shall persevere and in the meantime stick to a Pay As You Go SIM and keep calls to a minimum. The camera, however, does seem to take better photos so I shall experiment with it on our next trip when we go away for Christmas.
I have just ordered my birthday present (my birthday is just after Christmas). A cheap and cheerful mobile 'phone case from China via Amazon.
Happy Birthday to me!!!
