Nokia G21 – My 11th Handphone

Updated 15th November 2023.

Before officially retiring my Nokia 6 late last year, I quickly went on a search for my next handphone, my 11th that is. Curious to know what happened to the Nokia 6? This is what happened.

Frankly speaking, searching for my 11th handphone was a fairly easy task. I only had two brands in mind; Nokia and Samsung. That’s because I had good impressions of them, particularly Nokia (read my Nokia handphones stories). Then, it was to decide which model to buy. I narrowed it down to one model each from the two brands.

I managed to get a good discount on the Samsung phone model that I was eyeing during the 2022 Black Friday sale (25th Nov) but I hold off since I still have mixed feelings. When the 12.12 sale was approaching, I finally decided I want the Nokia instead because I don’t think I can go through another Samsung bloatware-mare (my Samsung trauma is still very fresh despite a few years had passed). Yes, technology has advanced so it probably shouldn’t be a problem. Still, I was hesitant.

Thank You Very Much Nokia 6!

Updated 1st April 2024.

You know what? I dropped my Nokia 6 phone on the first day I bought it. From then on, I will drop the phone accidentally (not purposely la) from time to time. There are times when I would drop the phones several times a day or drop it continuously for a few days. This is me being klutzy at its best. Thanks to its well-built aluminium body and strong willpower, it soldier on.

Well, that was until one fine day, the charging port became loose. I thought oh ohhh not again like my retired Samsung S3 issue? But you know what (again)? After many a drop, the charging port miraculously became okay back. 🀣

My 2022

My 2022 began slowly like 2021 but starts moving fast after the first quarter and when it reached December? It went on triple turbo mode!!! πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

I wasn’t really living my 2022. Every day was following a fixed schedule in order to escape the traumas (yeah, it came back). It was and still is traumatizing to live with that toxic morsel. You know this toxic morsel purposely taunts you every day and you try hard to be okay with it but sometimes you fall and feel trapped. And this year, I fell really hard. Very very hard. You can’t do anything about it except hide in a room, get outta there forever or choose death. Or curse a lot. I cursed that moronic toxic morsel GTH many times. I know it’s bad of me but it’s just too unbearable not to release the stresses.

Adios, My Dear Nikon D80

‘Twas 24th August 2022, a beautiful Wednesday morning. I was busy clicking away at my breakfast plate with the Nikon D80 but that one last click changes everything: a weird shutter sound played out. I checked the control panel and it was blinking with an Err message. Every time I press the shutter, the motor kept giving a weird rrrrr sound.

This is the subject I was photographing
