Style Meets Tech

I took my spanking new Nubia M2 out to play to a day packed with meetings and events and I’m excited to highlight my favorite features of the phone for you guys.

No guesses for what my favorite feature in a phone is. You have to have seen me on just one social media platform to have known that answer (and I have, well, 5). Duh, the camera!
