A few months with the Surface Go

in ✍️ Posts

During the last weeks I saw a few reviews (like this one) about long time experience with the Surface Go. I have mine for a couple of months now and finally finished the first semester where it accompanied me for a couple of different tasks.

Well, the trees will die if you use your phone, before they finished growing.

in appydroid

At the beginning of December 2017 I wrote that I will buy the Xiaomi Mi A1 when it finally gets the update to Oreo. That’s exactly what I did. I’ve been using it for over 24 hours now, so my first impressions here: Fingerprint sensors are awesome! The Android and iOS world has had the option to unlock the mobile phone via fingerprint for years now, but only recently the whole thing has entered the budget area, which is why this is also my first mobile phone, which I can unlock with my fingerprint.
