Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Used them a few times. Took me half an hour to upload 11 photos all under 10mb each. Like filling up a 2 litre bottle with the tap on drip. Only good to send an email.

Use them everyday in Melbourne. Allows me to recharge less $$$ for now, while they’re free to everyone.
