It was probably a good decision to cancel my OnePlus Nord pre-order. Next to the display issues there are delivery delays and now there’s another problem too.

@bekopharm Yeah, that shirt is really cool ☺️👍 But I wouldn’t wear it myself, I am already asked far too often things that you can easily find on Google DuckDuckGo. 😅

Answer to a comment by a reader on my last post: I know that there’s an active modding community for the Xiaomi Mi A1. However, I don’t want to use any custom ROM as long as possible, because it usually makes using banking apps etc. a lot harder and I don’t have any alternative to them. And Android 9 is still recent enough that all apps (I need) work fine. I used LineageOS on my Moto G 3rd Gen. and the Moto E 1 Gen. I had before.
