Original mobile phone screen replacement is always the best possibility



Short recap: 
My Wife accidentally broken her mobile screen during COVID pandemic and with limited options available due to lockdown restrictions, I had to prefer replacing broken screen with duplicate screen. However, the replacement did not work as expected and eventually the duplicate screen also broke within few weeks during small drop. So, it had left me with square one to lookout for practical choice. There were two options available, either replace mobile phone with new upgraded mobile phone or check out the OEM for original mobile phone screen replacement.

Finally found resolution for broken mobile screen
After much thought on choice of preferred possibility for my wife's broken mobile screen, I wanted to check with OEM for the actual cost for replacing broken mobile screen and any possibility of shipping from remote location. To my surprise, the OEM was affirmative on the available option and was quoting price, which was affordable when compared to the old duplicate screen. Finally decided on replacing the broken mobile screen with the OEM screen and started the process for replacement. The process was little slower and was taking its own time for movement from one stage to the other. 

Conclusion
The mobile phone reached me after taking its own time and I was anxious about the final output. Finally, the mobile phone screen was replaced with the original screen and the mobile phone was performing like it was new. After a bit of struggle and exploring affordable options, I came to conclusion that no matter how cheap the duplicate screen or how expensive the OEM screen was, the original screen replacement should always be the preferred option for users.

Lack of features in OneDrive post migration from Google Drive

It has been few weeks since I opted for OneDrive as my preferred online cloud storage choice and wanted to detail my experience to my readers. Initially I was excited to use OneDrive as my preferring online cloud platform and later had few hiccups here and there. Following are my observation while using OneDrive as my only source of online cloud platform. 
  • No Option to exclude pictures from specific folders: I have around 20GB of my old office files and when I move my office files into OneDrive, the files are copied with ease and with no questions asked. However, I later noticed that my office files had few pictures or images inside the folders and these pictures are moved into overall photos album. When I scroll through my old personal photos, I get distracted and feel unpleasant by looking at those office file images. There is choice available in OneDrive to mark the specific folder to exclude the images to be synchronized to the photos album. 
  • Lack of Chromecast support in iOS OneDrive: As said in my earlier articles, I wanted my preferred online cloud platform to support Chromecast, so that it was easier cast my old images or files into my TV for work or while get-together with family. Before, opting into OneDrive as my preferred online cloud platform, I was checking about Chromecast support and found that Microsoft had re-introduced those features into its application. I double checked with my wife's android phone to ensure that availability of Chromecast option and did not feel the need to do the same in my iPhone. Only after moving all my old files and photos to OneDrive, I noticed that the Chromecast feature is not available on iOS devices and Microsoft is yet to announce the support for the same. 
Hope Microsoft considers about suggestions and addresses the concerns at the earliest, so unaccustomed users like me, who migrated to OneDrive as primary online cloud storage option feel comfortable and renew the subscriptions for the upcoming years.

With these changes it has now become a necessity for young children to have their own mobile devices, however following are the concerns related to it. 
  • Addiction to mobile games: By provide individual mobile phones to young children, it has become exceedingly difficult for the parents to monitor their kids all the time and sometimes it has become exceedingly difficult to identify whether the kids are attending classes or playing games with their friends.

However, most android phones have lot of in-built applications and most times these apps provide unrated and unwanted ads as notifications.

How stupid manager ruins working environment

As I have detailed in my earlier posts about how difficult it is to work with my manager, I wanted to continue with this post as well. In the earlier post, I have detailed about how my manger has no forward-looking plans and how my manager micromanages work assigned to the team members. In continuation with that, I wanted to detail following pointers as well. 
  • Lack of clarity on work assigned: Once the work is assigned from the on-site team, usually it is reviewed with the concern team about the nature of the work, effort required and milestones for the work. However, my manager without even discussing about such analysis, he will list out different activities to be completed and to be shared with on-site team. Later the on-site team will detail about their expectations and anticipated effort from our team. 
  • Standing by the team or providing required support during hectic work: At times, our team will be assigned with hectic work and during calls, if at all the on-site team assign additional work or unnecessary activities, my manager will not even utter a word in support for the team members.

OneDrive inches ahead than Google Photos 

The need for finding reliable online cloud storage choice has grown stronger with announcement from Google that photos backup will be counted against storage limit, this was complete betrayal from Google. When Google photos was introduced, the major selling point for iPhone user line was unlimited photos backup for lifetime and I completely trusted the statement from tech giant like Google. However, we were completely backstabbed by marketing gimmick from Google and their decision to accumulate storage for photos backup was disastrous. Now that we have been left with no options, the search for reliable and affordable cloud storage for photos have grown stronger. Even if Google decides to extend the deadline or even if it extends storage to its existing users, the affordability of Google photos have gone down drastically, and their prices seems exceedingly higher than Microsoft’s OneDrive. To my readers, I wanted to reiterate the fact that the above blog post was not sponsored, and all the above comments were from my previous experience and viewpoint. To know more about my decision on online cloud storage, please feel free to check out the blog post in “G R Team Sites”
