14 Things You Will Understand If Your Phone Has Ever Betrayed You

February 7, 2020

Phones might be one of the best things to have happened in recent decades, but they came with their baggage too — from software to hardware problems. Hardware issues are easier to deal with, but when your phone develops a fault and you have no idea what is wrong, things become a little complicated. If you’ve been down this road, you will relate to this.

Hallelujah!

You, looking at what you have left in your account

Ha!
