As mentioned, I finally caved when I found a smartphone that seemed good and happened to be crazy cheap. I figured it didn't have to be super pretty as I could customize it anyway. And so the day it arrived I ordered myself a cute case.
Isn't it adorable? And I also ordered an earphone jack plug with a bunny and an ice cream cone, which happens to have the same pink cheeks as the girl on the cell phone case. You can't even imagine the joy that gives me!
As for the actual phone… it's a Sony Xperia M and I'm loving it so far. The quality of the screen is really impressive, the sound is nice and the pictures are quite good (not great, but way more decent than I was expecting). But my favorite thing is...
The fairytale background! This blew my mind! Not only is it a panorama shot that slides over five menus, it also changes with time. The trees stay the same, but the animals change. Sometimes Little Red Riding Hood shows up.
Occasionally there are even moving things. Like swimming ducks or turtles. And… as it gets darker outside in real life, the forest on my phone does so too! Consider my mind blown. This alone was almost worth the purchase.
