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.

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.
