My iPhone XS Haul & Otterbox Casing Giveaway

a birthday give for myself

Finally, I took the plunge to upgrade my trusty iPhone 6S who has been with me for 3 years. It's still a good phone, which is one of the reasons I'm such an apple fan girl. While it's a good phone, I feel the camera is lacking in times because everyone takes such great pictures these days with just a click of a button with their phone. I have been thinking to get a small point & shoot camera as my Canon 70D DSLR is much too heavy for traveling. I prefer to travel light these days because I don't want to stress about bulky or heavy pieces of luggage.

Considering I mainly use my phone for everything, I decided it's time to just get the latest iPhone XS 256GB. This is the largest capacity I've ever signed up for, I remember my iPhones don't go above 16GB, I always take the basic and then regret deleting apps and photographs as I go so this time, I'm going for 256GB and I WILL HAVE FUN STORING ALL KINDA APPS AND PHOTOGRAPHS + VIDEO.

It is super expensive, but I still wanted it so I signed for Maxis's Zerolution (installment plan) for 2 years. After buying it, I quickly went home fearing someone will rob my precious phone. It's the most expensive I've ever bought, more than my own MacBook Air! But as soon as I started using it, I've fallen in love with the iPhone XS. It's the best decision I've ever made!

The difference is so great because I was using iPhone 6S (dinosaur already). Just the processor alone was smoother, faster and better. The screen quality is superb and also bigger. I was watching videos and reading my manga in happiness. The camera in low light is great and I can't wait for my Korea work trip so I can snap lots of photographs.

I'm also planning to go to Gaya Island again this February to celebrate Baby G's birthday. So yes I'm excited and happy with my purchase. It's worth it!

And thanks to Otterbox Malaysia, I could dress my iPhone XS right away in a cute pastel casing with drop protection. Yeap wouldn't want my RM5,666 phone to be damaged, my heart would stop beating.

The fashionable Symmetry Series is sleek with a raised, beveled edge that provides extra protection for the touchscreen during face-down drops. Available in classic solids, trendy graphics, fully clear and clear graphics, it's the perfect fashion statement.
