Finally arrived. Didn't like any of the 3rd party options that much and the stock ebony wood one just looked so nice.Following a series of hardware issues with the screen since I got the battery replaced on my HTC 10 at a store that I shall forever curse under my breath, I decided that instead of trying to deal with it or slowly repair my daily driver of a phone, I should get a replacement and fix the 10 on my own time.
Ever since smartphones hit the market, I've been in the HTC camp. Started with the Touch Diamond (Windows ME with a custom skin - the first days of Sense, before it was even called that), which I tinkered with and actually got Android 1.6 to run on, followed by pure Android devices: Desire, One S, One M7, One M9 and finally 10.
But it would seem the days of HTC, after being forecasted for so many years, are finally coming to an end. They haven't produced a single device to catch my eye as a viable replacement since the 10 (which is pushing on 3 years) so recutantly and with a heavy heart I went with another brand.
I'll miss you, HTC. You were the granddaddy of smartphones, you had such potential and brought many innovations to the market. But now it's over.
It's a OnePlus 6 in the lowest spec (still pretty beefy). 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage in Mirror Black.
Now I need a case, cause damn does that rear glass look fragile.
I have the same case for my 6T and love it. Not quite as much as the leather case (dat patina, tho) I had for the iPhone X, but it's a damn good case.Finally arrived. Didn't like any of the 3rd party options that much and the stock ebony wood one just looked so nice.
Feels so nice in the hand too!
