Hardware and software I use:

Productivity: I primarily use Microsoft’s OneNote for writing, long term notes, see my article why it kicks ass. I use good old pen & paper for daily lists.
Phone: LG G6, a great flagship Android phone and cheaper than Samsungs
Film Camera: Nikon FM2 but shooting less film after finishing 52 rolls project
