Some sort of ramble about phones a bit more on the Ramsgate watercolour

My phone is reaching the point where replacement is the only answer my Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 is a 2011 phone running Android 4.1.2. The problem is usable memory. Basically the way it’s partitioned means that there is only 2 gigabytes available to running the phone and I am now wasting too much time fiddling with it to maintain enough memory to do the things I have to do.

Anyway I have ordered an OUKITEL K6000 Pro which I hope will have enough space for a while, I have tried the phone out on children and it seems to be ok, as it’s one of the cheapest high speck phones on the market I will do a post or two about how I get on with it.

I had considered upgrading to the latest Samsung Galaxy Note, but this is the one that has had all the catching fire problems.

My first Android phone had 128 MB RAM, 96 MB ROM and managed to do all of things smart phones do, itc progress is a strange thing.

I think it was Thursday’s photos that finally tipped the situation

Horses in the sea at Margate

Cropped down the best one produces this, not enough pixels

Camera and battery life are big issues for me with this blog so I am hoping for some improvement. Theoretically I could cart around a decent camera but as I am already carting around my sketchpad, paints, brushes, blow up cushion, umbrella, sunglasses, reading glasses and stuff it’s a bit of a non-starter.

I did manage to get out for a bit this morning and do a bit of painting

Even started another one
