Eirene and I are starting a monthly blog linkup! The theme, as you’ve probably guessed, is My Favorite Things. On every first Tuesday of the month, we will be co-hosting a linkup showcasing our favorite things. It would be awesome if you guys could join us. This month’s linkup will be open for one week, so please submit an entry and let’s get to know one another. (◕‿◕✿)
Rules on how to enter are located at the end of this post. Here we go!
My New Phone Case
I don’t own any true clear cases for my phone which is a shame because HTC makes such gorgeous flagships. Aesthetics were a huge factor in me picking out the HTC One, and I ended up covering it with a case all the time. Oops.
I ordered this clear snap-on case on Amazon a few weeks ago for a change. I was getting bored of my previous case as always, and I felt like I’ve ordered every case for my phone ever. But I saw this one, and the blue trims were really cute. It’s not as fluorescent as the listing suggests, but I still love the color so much. Plus, I can finally show off how pretty my phone is!
l.ist is an incredibly simple app. Just fire it up, and make your list. That’s it. It’s snappy and works fast, and you can choose your favorite color. I love it!
My mother-in-law gifted me these scarves shortly before we moved away. She’s seriously great and I’m lucky to have such an awesome mother-in-law. I heard a lot of horror stories about in-laws, but mine have been so kind and patient. And these scarves she gave me are so warm and fluffy. I’ve been wearing them all the time now that the cold’s arrived. 谢谢妈妈!
This Owl Purse
I’ve been looking for a black purse for AGES. I was always on the lookout whenever I went shopping, but I never found one I liked enough to buy. I saw this purse last week at H&M while looking for knee-high socks and I fell in love instantly!
Okay, this is kinda cheating because I’ve owned this tablet for a few months now, but I just realized that I never wrote a proper review for it save for a sort of unboxing. I’ll write a very short review now.
The battery life is great; it holds a charge really well on standby. Sometimes a rogue app will do some serious wakeclocks and drain the battery (haven’t found out which one), but a quick restart fixes it. The display is crisp. Some people have complained about the lower than flagship-type pixel density (294 PPI) but at this point, it’s just nitpicking because it’s seriously a good display. Keep in mind that higher PPIs have diminishing returns.
And this tablet flies. The Tegra K1 chip does its job well. Very fast and very few stutters. And it sells for $300 which, for an 8-inch tablet with a future-ready chip, is a fair price. It is on the heavy side, but nothing one couldn’t handle.
Oh, and also: front-facing speakers. Yass.
I’m still loving my tablet. Now that the honeymoon phase is over, me still enjoying it is a very good sign. So if you’ve been thinking of getting a tablet for yourself, do consider the Nvidia Shield!
