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. 🀣

Nokia 6 – My 10th Handphone

After retiring my Samsung S3, I went on a handphone witch-hunt. Among the brands that I considered were Huawei, Motorola and Sony but eventually I choose my first love… NOKIA! Since the model that I’m interested in had not been released yet, so I waited and waited and waited. I used my mom’s phone for a couple of months. Hehe, I’m very patience hor?

My Retired Samsung S3

This is absolutely yet another LATE POST. Just for my reference and/or to help those that are facing these issues.

My Samsung S3 (9th handphone) started having some issues around 1.5 to 2 years ago (perhaps circa mid year of 2016). Actually few months after I blogged about this handphone, it started lagging noticeably, but I hold on to it. I gotta make my money worth!

Ok, so the issues I had with my Samsung S3:
1. Battery draining very fast. I suspected this was due to an app that I downloaded. It was so bad that I had to reset the phone to factory setting few times. Battery life improved a bit but I still need to charge the phone almost twice daily. I even bought a new battery, but no help there.

Samsung Galaxy S3 – My 9th Handphone

Just when the news hit that Samsung Galaxy S4 has arrived our shore, I knew it’s time. But still not the right time as my old BlackBerry is still functional. Well, until that fateful day when I let loose of the phone and everything ended there.

So I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 in white! Oh you read correct and it’s not a typo mistake. πŸ™‚ S4 is just not within my budget because I refuse to pay so much for a phone. Hahaha Of course owning the latest phone is a nice feeling. Galaxy S3 suit me perfectly fine in the wallet since I know it’s going to get a price drop after S4 came in. Hehehe
