    Well, maybe I am quite excited... woke twice in the night and didn't have the best nights sleep cause of it! Been the gym nice and early. Checked the doorbell works :) Now just the waiting game.

    Do enjoy your vids Andy, interested to see what you think of it.

    Im just setting mine up and im enjoying it even though its not much of an update from my note 8. One of the apps you recommend on one of your videos was Speakerphone EX which Ive been using for a while and is useful. ive just gone to install it but it don't seem to be available anymore. Do you or anyone know of any alternative?

    Thanks. Hmm, no, still using SpeaerPhoneEX. I guess we can just use an APK mirror site?

    I'm the exact same when new shiny stuff is being delivered. I purposely stopped purchasing expensive items before bed time now because I end up lying awake for hours with anticipation or buyer's remorse!
    Loved your 2XL video last year, almost the reason I bought one myself in the end. Will wait patiently to see this one.

    Yesterday was the first time I'd bought a phone instore in like forever. It was surreal driving their to pick it up from Carphone Warehouse. Beats hanging around for delivery and listening to every diesel vehicle driving slowly outside the house.

    Of course the police blocked off a major road on the way back home which added to my drama.

    So many dad's here wanting to get Fortnite skins for their 'sons' ;)

    I did already help magicroundabout out with this last night so if there's anybody else that isn't going to use this themselves, maybe they can help Spartak and lmfy2k out.

    Has it turned up yet Andy?

    Where did you get the Note from? Which one did you get?

    Yep, half way through recording the unboxing video. Just waiting for data to transfer from my Pixel at the moment.

    I got it from eBay when they had the 15% off offer last week. The guy picked it up yesterday morning and RMSD Sat delivered it to me. :)

    Been on the phone this morning to CPW customer services, they tried to said it was a limited offer and not everyone would get one. Even if you pre-ordered almost immediately. I complained, bit of discussions occured and they are sending me one in the post :cool:

    Android infuriates me at times. Can someone please tell me how to give access to the SD card fro third party apps? In trying to delete pictures in the Piktures app but it says I need to give access, follow the steps but there is no option to show the SD root directory.

    Probably weird app. Normally within the app you grant it access You shouldn't have to grant it permission outside of the app unless you dismissed away the permissions prompt.

    Permissions are in app settings under permissions. Should be a storage permission

    It's doing it for every third party gallery app I've tried. App permissions have storage on but this is been more needy. I've had this problem every time and can't fix until the app it uses to find the root SD directory actually shows it.

    Well that's kinda strange. Wonder if you've activated some kind of additional security.

    I installed a file manager app and just granted it storage permission and it can access everything including external sd card fine.

    Ah that's good to hear thanks!

    Mine had a software update last night, upto '1 August 2018' security patch level. Build number N960FXXU1ARH5. Makes a change to get a prompt update, my S8+ was stuck on 'CRAP' Feb 1st patch level.

    Tried Smart Switch from iPhone X, but keeps failing at 94%, guess it’s something to do with iOS 12 beta?

    Does the Dolby Atmos work with 3rd party apps? Like MX Player VLC etc?

    When is the 512GB version getting released ?
    Amazon uk only says pre-order and gives no release date..:(

    As sometimes feel like I be mad if I no pay out the extra £165 for the 8Gb/512GB version

    But then I change mind to feeling like I be mad paying out the extra for the 512gb version when I have a habit of changing my mobile phone every year or 2 years..:p
