Not much happened this month. I wrote a few emails to a person, and kept up with Twitter. I am adjusting to the new phone I had for a little more than a month. As usual, I posted my thoughts about it which you could find at http://fsp.cc/1+6. The first week however was spent paying bills, transferring my rent rebate to my savings account, and taking Malak to the vet for his annual checkup.
The second week wasn’t very exciting. I received my food assistance benefits which I then went to the grocery store and bought most of the food I need for the month. As usual, I bought hot dogs, a few TV dinners, bread, coffee, and have some left over to handle the more perishable foods. I also went to the pharmacy to purchase Q-Tips.

Not much happened this month. I had problems with my Moto Z Play1 where the headphone jack and the moto mod pins weren’t working properly. An acquaintance asked if they could have it, which I agreed to it. I however needed a new phone, and I opted for the One Plus 6 which one could read a review on it.
When acquiring the One Plus 6, I added a cellular plan. Since this is a dual SIM phone, I have the newer carrier (with unlimited minutes) in SIM and is default for making calls.

I use the headphone jack on a daily basis, and the jack on my former phone stopped working. I am not likely to buy from that company again. It however does not change the fact that I needed to get a new phone. While I could have used bluetooth headphones, this is not a good solution in rain, and there is a need for battery power. This means that the headphones have to be charged. And while I do use Bluetooth headphones, there are disadvantages to them.
I opted for the One Plus 6. The phone has a SnapDragon 845 CPU with Adreno 630. There is 8GB of memory, and a 256GB Storage. There is no expandable storage, and the phone has a notch. The screen is a 1080p AMOLED panel which allows for black to just be off for pixel lighting. There is 401ppi. The phone is also a dual SIM phone with support for GSM 2G/3G, and LTE. There is no CDMA support. The phone has a 16MP camera with a secondary 20MP camera. The front side camera is a 16MP. There is all of the sensors expected, and the phone has a fingerprint reader and NFC. The model of my phone is $630 which came out of my Savings, and therefore – the savings will have to be refunded.
