Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year.

I finally have a usable phone! This one is called Doogee X9 Pro. After getting increasingly frustrated with the low end configurations of Moto phones being shipped to UK, I finally have up and settled for a cheap Chinese phone.
