    It had a specific target audience and was effectively a large scale prototype to test on tech nerds. I think people like us were never even close to being in the target market and as a result, will naturally reject it as preposterous.

    Speaking of £2 grand, Vodafone want me to upgrade to an S20 for £71/month. Total cost of contract is £1733. I've been with them for a couple of decades and I'm sick of going through this "I'm going to leave" tosh every time to get a reasonable offer, combined with waiting ages on the phone or web chat. Competitors are offering the same for £40 / month - TCO is £999. Still a huge amount of cash but at least in the realms of acceptable.

    I think I might just terminate my DD, given it's so hard to just get the contract ended.

    While I sympathise, I really wouldn't do that.

    At a bare minimum, read the cancellation terms VERY carefully, comply to the letter and be sure to document having done so. Then cancel it. Just cancelling the DD is a good way to end up on a debt collector's list, and/or default marks on your credit record.

    "At this summer’s Galaxy Unpacked, we’ll be introducing five new power devices," says Samsung.

    Re: Samsung ramps up its Unpacked event teasers

    Power devise, probably mean for power users, so a large phone that can unfold to a tablet.

    It do not matter what Samsung do, if it become popular people will buy it at any cost, just look at the fruit company, they sell phones just fine at 100 % more than it cost to make.
    And get people to upgrade just about every year.
    And even if it dont cost a dime, people will buy in to it too if it is popular, just look at the different social media stuff making people and the world sick.
    I care not for phones.

    Hmm... you may have a point. Perhaps I terminate it by strapping my cancellation letter to a few plague ridden bodies and delivering it via trebuchet?
