After three years I upgraded my S7 Edge to an S10. I got it from another forum, five days old and £150 off. I've bought from this guy before. The real deal. The phone is great. At least it will be when I've arranged it exactly as my old one was. So few of my passwords want to work, and the layout has changed. In some ways it's worth buying a new phone from the shop and getting them to swap it all over for you. Humph.

I use Nova Launcher Pro, which can be set to remember your layout on a new phone.

£625 instead of £799. No, it isn't a knock-off.

That's not bad.  :cool:

I'v'e stuck myself in the sub £200 bracket...for no particular reason other than thinking they're getting a bit expensive for not much in the way of performance.
I also need dual SIM (either EE or O2 works most places in the Highlands, or there's nothing at all), so my Moto G6 does me.  :smiley:

Nah, it's a work phone. :)
Even with 20% off as a taxable expense.


Must be because I'm Scottish.  :azn:

These things are too fragile for work phones. Glass front and back. Same for the iphone.

Mostly you're right, but if you tried the Galaxy S7, the one I just moved away from, the screen is way better and so's the camera. Smoother too, though I loved the HTC One. The S7 and S7 - and iPhone X - are more fragile than the HTC one because of the glass front and back. I wouldn't recommend them if your work is likely to have you crawling between joists or whatever.

It's taken me two days but I've finally restored all of my 2000+ messages and my call record in three way I want it.  Cool.

Congrats, Glam and I hope you enjoy the S10!
I bought a Note 8 for around 500 last year, then the Note 9 came out and now the Note 10 will be coming in August.
I'm still well chuffed with the Note 8, but it's a job keeping up with Samsung.
