25 Days To 5th Birthday Celebrations #5YearsofTheLifesWay #27Dec2017 #Technology

Hi Friends, 


I have always been attached to technology and it was my luck or dream that I went into completing Electronics Engineering. I was always in love with the camera and when I got a camera phone gifted by my brother, I took unlimited photos till the memory was full. During those times, VGA camera was the highest and then later Nokia had some 1.3MP camera installed. Later, I got Nokia N8 which had the 3.2MP camera and it was awesome to take photos using the same. At that time, the main camera I was using had only 5 MP sensor. Camera in future phones crossed 40MP in Nokia 1020 and it was amazing to use the same phone for a review period. I went to the launch event of the same in India and it was simply awesome. 

I loved my HTC phones always and I bought one after Google's Nexus One made by HTC died due to the broken power button. It was a common issue on that phone which I only came to know after mines got broken. I had to spend a lot of money to buy HTC One M7 but I fell in love with the same immediately. I had a choice at that time to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as it was cheaper and was coming with exchange offer in India which would have saved me enough money to buy another mid-range smartphone. But when I used my Bose Earphones on HTC One M7 on a demo unit at the retail store, the audio impact was the difference between Samsung and HTC device. I went and bought HTC One M7 and after coming here to South Africa took a lot of pictures here.

HTC's PR Company gifted me HTC One M8 (old review unit) way back in 2015 and I am still using the same but now it's time to upgrade once again. In my 5th year of The Life's Way, I would buy if not sponsored the smartphone soon. I use my smartphone to take photos, post them on Instagram, I tweet a lot and also sometimes I write a whole blog post on the smartphone using Swype keyboard. I still remember I have written some chapters when I collaborated with another bloggers to write a novel using the flow method used in Swype keyboard app.

I have bought a lot of technology in my life but never learned to recycle the same. It was still with me but now as I am nearing the second half of my life, I am giving it all away to the poor and needy in India. My mom has already distributed all the 13 old Nokia phones models I had. I am reducing my lifestyle to follow minimalism and use only one device at a time for the purpose I want it to. I want to reduce all the electronics clutter I have in the new year and that's a resolution for 2018.
