    I bought an orange Nokia MD-12 portable wireless speaker for AUD$12.50 from eBay
    I received the speaker a couple of weeks back. Here it is in bright orange (I think I'm supposed to remove the rubber ring):


    Just two inputs - Audio In and micro USB for charging:


    An abstract close-up of the speaker grill... for art:


    The Nokia MD-12 has a built-in vibrating actuator inside the base. The quality of the sound and bass is determined by what surface the speaker is placed on. Daniel Rubino demonstrated this in his review. I have mine placed on wooden table and I can feel the bass reverberating through it.

    Remember when Nokia/Microsoft made colourful products in 2014/15?

    I miss the colors a lot. It was the perfect way to identify a Lumia. Which phone is your main phone?

    Yeah, me too. It's what made the Lumia range so attractive. No other manufacturer makes colourful phones anymore. It's all white, grey, black, gold and rose gold. No primary colours. Not even the official accessories. It's a sad landscape these days.

    Which phone is your main phone?
    640. The 735 is a back up/secondary and the 635 is a spare.

    The Lumia 640 and 735 are fairly even: where one falters the other excels and vice versa. For example, the 735 has Qi wireless charging, AMOLED display, 5MP FFC, and a 6.7MP f/1.9 rear camera (with its superior low light/high ISO performance and more aesthetically pleasing bokeh). In the end I stuck with the 640 for its longer battery life, larger display, LCD colour accuracy (less garish than AMOLED), higher resolution rear camera, round corners, and official flip covers for maximum protection.

    I don't know how good this is, since I've never tried it. https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Camer...pUvbUpU3674615 Perhaps it or something similar will work.

    Pretty good kit for under 20 bucks...
    Just used it to replace a camera LCD.

    Wish the tweezers were curved...I do have a pair of curved tweezers though.

    I use an old one from back like 10 years ago. Still a good kit. I even use the extension and bits in my power drill when needed. Actually I just did today when adjusting two end tables we bought at a garage sale that came with a coffee table ($40) at a steal of a deal.

    My new little baby, the fabulous Lumia 950, in its attractive IMAK case (Featured with the rest of its connected mobile family, the not so new teclast x98 plus and the mi band 2).

    Also new, a nice miracast receiver for 950 and colourcross cardboard VR type headset (which is pretty limited, but its by my VR outside the chessboard demo in the 90s, I'll prolly get some real mixed reality gear later); neither pictured.

    So far I can say the build quality is top-notch. It's definitely more slippery than my Idol but that's to be expected. The display is as awesome as advertised but I'm not quite used to the aspect ratio. I haven't had the chance to play with DeX yet but that is coming. I did see a few non-Microsoft DeX-compatible apps available so that's good. No word yet on battery life but it's 9:20AM and it's at 92% (that's great for me). My Gear S2 is naturally working fantastic so nothing to report there.

    One minor quibble that may grow into a full blown rant is the curious placement of the fingerprint scanner. I see many smudged pictures in my future due to this. So much so that whenever you open the camera app there's a reminder to make sure the lens is clean.

    I'll update as I go along.
