I have bought a new phone. My Samsung Galaxy J7 was only 1.5 years old but I decided to sell it and get a new one. So I bought the Motorola Moto G4 Plus smartphone was launched in May 2016. Here are some specs:

I wanted the black one but the store didn’t have any and only have a few ones in gold and several in white. I went for the white one. I have installed a few apps for the moment and will take tomorrow to do the rest. As I sold my Samsung in exchange for reducing the price for this phone, I can’t shoot an unboxing for my Moto G4 plus. So instead here is a video of someone else doing a professional unboxing of the same phone.
I am thinking of buying a new phone and selling my current one. I bought my current Samsung Galaxy J7 in February of last year and I am thinking of getting either a Moto G 4 plus or 5 plus or getting the OnePlus 2. Either of these three phones will be fine. There is also the LETV Le 1s X507, Honor 6X Lenovo K6 Note or LG K10.
Any of these phones will be awesome and I am leaning towards the Moto G 4Plus but I dunno, things could change. I won’t spend more than 13-15 thousand on a smartphone. My phone cost should not be equal to more than the cost of my laptop. Since I can do a whole lot more things on my laptop the cost of Rs.20-25k is ok for a laptop but not for a smartphone.
I know some people will disagree but that’s how I see it. I also feel that this way of keeping the cost down enables me to change phones every 1.5 years with less guilt. Let’s see, I will decide in the next few days.
I usually used to buy mostly on eBay but I’ve recently become an Amazon convert for several things. Back in 2015 October I made my very first really big purchase on Amazon India and that was this laptop I am typing on. My Dell Vostro 3558 Corei3 15 in. But other than that it’s been mostly eBay. However I recently began using Amazon a lot more and signed up for Prime and well, I have bought a few things online. This weekend too I was browsing and going through things and I bought just a couple of things.
First up is the first Fidget Spinner I have bought. I want to see just what the fuss is all about. I also bought this neat looking football design bottle opener for my beers. Mind you I don’t have the items yet.
Amazon’s grocery list is also kinda good. My first purchases are these two 1 litre juices from a company, Paper Boat I have known about but haven’t seen in the supermarkets in my town. They have lots of products and they come in nice packaging.
Oh and I also bought these three items that you see here for a friend who was leaving the company I work for. I knew she wanted a diary/journal with a lock that you see here on the left. This one was the nicest that I could find. Then I bought a steel travel mug for her since she loves coffee as much as I do and a leather covered pencil stand as well. I also bought her a poster but I can’t find an image for that poster.
What do you when your band has guitarist problems? You hire your lawyer to play for you!
Yes, 80s rock band Dokken had several personnel changes on guitar, that finally their attorney Jon Levin stepped in to fill the role in 2004. Levin, now 51, who was the guitarist for German band Warlock, took a break from music in the early 90s and became an entertainment lawyer and served as legal counsel, working with Jim Paidas, of Paidas Management, on a myriad of licensing programs; some of which include Orange County Choppers, Dog the Bounty Hunter, American Hot Rod, and Rockstalgia and a few musiceians. He was invited by one of the membrs of Dokken to play guitar for them in 1998 and over the course of the next few years played in some of their shows before becoming a permanent member in 2004.
He’s been with the band ever since, enjoying the career resurgence they’ve had since their 2008 return-to-form album, Lightning Strikes Again. Levin himself, who now co-writes most of band’s material, had a strong hand in shaping that record. “I wanted us to do a Dokken-sounding record,” he explains — a concept Don Dokken was slow to commit to, but has since fully embraced. Now, when Levin goes to perform with Dokken at big classic rock and metal festivals, he’s a rock star guitarist onstage and a rock star attorney backstage. Of the Rocklahoma festival, which Dokken last played in 2013, he says, “So many of the bands that were there, I represent someone in the band.”
