... well that escalated quickly.
New phone bought after some emergency research and a VERY lucky discount caught at local electronics chain.
Turns out, the battery of the old phone was swollen. So lets update the survival expectancy to the end of the week. Now onto emergency data rescue and I can continue with my scheduled life. >.<
I'll miss the old phone. It was my main camera for shooting some of my favorite recent photos, but all good things come to an end. :)
