The Terracube 2e Arrives

Back in October, I wrote about my thoughts behind selecting a new phone to replace my ever battle weary OnePlus 3. Yesterday, as the title of this post gives away, the Terracube 2e phone finally arrived. A little later than the campaigns promise of a Christmas delivery, but it has…

The Teracube 2e - My Next Phone

With the OnePlus 3 now starting to get a little long in the tooth, no longer receiving updates and the camera going slightly wonky once again (you can read about my replacement attempts here), I thought it might be about time I start looking for an alternative. Others were considered,…
