  • There are many things in my daily life that I want to replace, from clothes to electronics.
  • Today, I’d like to discuss an electronic appliance that I need to replace because I can’t work without it: my phone.
  • As a manager in a game development company, my work involves checking for bugs and ensuring the proper functioning of games created by our developers.
  • Since I spend most of my time playing games for work, I need a high-performance device. However, my iPhone, which I’ve owned for a year, is causing problems. It frequently hangs, and the battery life has significantly decreased. I even have to play games while charging, which causes the phone to overheat, despite using a special cooler.
  • My entire team faces similar issues due to the battery problems.
  • To address this, I’m considering purchasing two new devices: one from OnePlus and another from ASUS. The ASUS phone will enhance my work efficiency, while the OnePlus will serve my daily needs.

  • Interestingly, both combined will cost less than a single iPhone, making it budget-friendly given our company’s allowance for high-performance devices.
