Not a purchase but a gift, but didn't know where to post so here it goes. Graduation gift (which I didn't expect) by my parents.

Loving it. Perfect size, perfect amount of flashy colours and discrete ones. Titanium so it's super light, chrono so it's even more useful and looks better. Blue that goes with everything. And no batteries. Sick.

That's a fine looking watch, and a very thoughtful gift from your parents! Be careful with it, great keepsake for later. I've got a Tissot for my 18th birthday, still have it.

So my old Samsung A7 had the screen cracked summer 2020 in a theme park. It cracked on its own on a rollercoaster. It was pretty bad but the screen worked perfectly and I wasn't going to spend 100€ to swap the glass on a 2 year old phone that would crap out next year or two due to the amount of hours I use it for work and stuff.

Last thursday, 2 very tiny pink marks popped up below one of the cracks. Pink turned purple and started spreading. I was already planning to swap phones by christmas so I would just hold it off until then. I wake up Friday and about 1/8 of the screen is black/purple/pink so I find some time off and go see what I can buy for now.

Black week is a thing here, and the screen kept getting worse and worse. This is from Friday when I went to look at a possible replacement:

By Monday, when I went to actually buy the replacement, the black bit covered the Wifi, Power Mode and Wifi Calling buttons throughout.

I waited until Monday then for the black week and reluctantly snatched myself a Samgung A52S 5G: 6GB RAM, 128GB Storage, etc with a standard price of 449€, for 230€ after discounts, some everyone has access to and some others my family has access to as my dad works where I got it.

I wasn't super pumped about it as I might be other times but man, seeing a screen that works, looks insane and has no cracks in it, as well as a 2021 phone with 2021 features is insane.

Few pics for reference:

Thanks :D
