    Honor 10. Good value at budget end. £140 from John Lewis.

    How are you getting on with the Samsung A71 ? - Its a brilliant Phone, -Did you consider the lower models like the a50. Also Buying it from the Samsung website works out cheaper in most cases, they do discounts or freebies if you look out every 2 months.

    Pretty good, so far, Jace. Lovely screen, I have to say.

    Some annoyances like trying to get rid of Bixby.

    Also, and not directly A71-related, I needed a new SIM. Argos really annoyed me, over that. I knew what I wanted, ordered it having been told on the order page it'll be ready to collect at Sainsbury by 10:00 the next day.

    Then the order confirmation arrives and is it next day? Hell no, it's five flipping days away. FIVE DAYS!!!!!

    It only had to travel about 2 miles. I could have walked that myself in not much more than an hour,, there and back.

    So the A71 sat here in it's box for nearly a week. I was spitting nails. Got a lovely new toy and couldn't use it.

    My only criticism so far, aside from Bixby, is that the charging lead is rather short, but that isn't hard to fix. That said, I don't have much smartphone experience to compare it to.

    Before asking here, I narrowed it down to either Chinese or not, and a couple of options within each. In the "not" camp, I'd long been tempted by Motorola if I ever got a smartphone, and for Samsung, I'd recently been able to have a quick play with a friend's, with a brother that has one (A90, IIRC) and with the wife's work phone.

    Ultimately, I've got to narrow it down somehow. The first narrowing was dismiss Chinese models, in part because of potential Android problems. That left mainstream brands and, having quite liked the Samsung, anything else had to 'beat' that, on some combination of price, features and general "appeal". Nothing did.

    Re: New phone - Honor, Huawei, Motorola or Samsung?

    Cool, Glad your liking it mate, IFfyou haven't turned off Bixby this might help https://www.samsung.com/in/support/m...urn-off-bixby/ - There are loads of help guides on the Samsung website buts its a bugger to find at times. Also check out that Youtube link I posted on the other Samsung post for loads of top tips to help you get the most out of the phone. I agree the Charging is way too short not sure why they do that, that said Motorola G7 is'nt that long either. I guess they want ppl to purchase longer cables for more money. You should be able to find a decent cable on amazon.

    Re: New phone - Honor, Huawei, Motorola or Samsung?

    I think I managed to strangle Bixby. Irritatingly, it asked on initial power-up if I wanted Bixby, and I said NO.

    So, naturally, I ended up with the damn tthing anyway. Still have the extreme left desktop screen dedicated to it. My pet hate with computers, is manufacturers (or Google) putting all sorts of rubbish on without permission, topped only by the tthem making it hard or impossible to get rid of.

    Grrrr.!!!!


    And thanks for the links.
