Moving From iPhone 4S To Moto G

Around the end of 2013 my iPhone 4S starting playing up; struggling to find a signal, not recognising the SIM card. Unfortunately it then got very wet, when I got caught in a downpour with it in my pocket.

I was in the market for a new phone.

What’s In My Bag?

Bag

I though it was time for another comparison to the last time I posted this here.

There have been a few changes, most notably an iPad has replaced the small laptop I used to carry, and the backpack itself is now a larger version than the previous one. I love SwissGear kit, it’s well thought out, functional and tough as nails.

Here’s the full list for now:

  • Pencil case, contains mainly markers and other presentation pens
  • Tissues
  • Moo business cards and stickers and work business cards
  • Notebook and post-its
  • Rail season ticket
  • Access pass and keys
  • Emergency dog biscuits
  • Paracetamols and ibuprofen
  • £1 coins in film cannister (for car parking machines and emergency coffees)
  • iPad
  • Sunglasses
  • iPhone 3Gs & i-Phone charger
  • Assorted memory sticks & extension cables
  • Power Monkey Explorer and power tips
