Oh no, technofear!

No, my old phone wasn’t this old!

And it came to pass that after more than two years of faithful service, the talk and text phone that I’ve been using since April 2015 has started to pack up…

Which led to a difficult decision.

Do I get another one of the same or go back to using a smartass phone?

Getting an upgrade wasn’t a problem as I was out of contract and there were loads of offers on both old style and new style phones.

As an Apple fan, it was tempting to go for one of theirs, but at those prices?

I don’t think so…

So the list was narrowed down to four Android smartphones that were on the list of potential phones I could upgrade to.

After reading reviews on The Guardian, Which, Amazon and Tech Radar websites, the decision was made – the Honor 5C.

It arrived over the weekend, but I’ve waited until a quiet day to set it up.

It’s taken two hours to do this, but a fair chunk of that time was getting used to the slight variations between the last Android phone and this one and the time it took to manually input the details and numbers from the old phone’s contact list (no Bluetooth to do that job on the old phone!).

As it stands at the moment, I’m a happy bunny.

That may change should frustration levels rise when trying to use the phone!

Time will tell..
