My Phone History – as far back as I can recall

So as a typical geek I like to have new gadgets but always attempt to recycle my old (phones) so that I am not paying any extra. I thought it might be interesting to see how successful I have been over the last few years (well, interesting to me anyway)


Current Phone – Microsoft Surface Duo (2019)

With the Surface Duo 2 now on the market I wondered what deals might be around for the older model and found what looks to be a great bargain on EBAY:

(Perfect working order but outer casing is quite badly chipped – I covered it using a standard case and connected a magnetic USB-C charging cable to reduce stress on the cracked USB-C port:

The back of the Duo is badly cracked – of concern is the USB-C port which has already been recognised to be a weak point in this phone. (Following permanently fitted to reduce stress, I am also considering a wireless charger)
