    You'll love it. Phone is insane.

    I'm currently sitting at over 8 hrs screen on time having been hammering it for most of the day. I have 5% left so living on the edge posting this

    Only had the phone a day so it's still learning my usage pattern and will start to put apps to sleep if they aren't being actively used to help manage battery which my Note 8 used to do really well.

    It's worth the wait. Most complete phone I've ever owned.

    Sorry to ask again.

    Anyone able to get me the fortnite skin please.

    BaZ87 helped my lad out which he's so chuffed with.
    But wants me to get it when we play squads/duos.

    Appreciate the help people

    Well, mine has arrived today and I am thoroughly impressed.
    I have an Iphone 7+ and the screen is blowing me away.
    Went out to football and left it charging and have just fitted a screen protector to it.
    Really like this phone, just got to get used to android again.

    Got mine yesterday. The blue 128 gig single sim version. I've only been dabbling with it as i don't want to take it out until my case and screen protector arrive however my first impressions are that it's very impressive.

    Edit:
    I'd like a case for work and a more slimline one to use when I'm out and about. I've opted for the spigen wallet s but I could use your opinions on slimline case and a screen protector please.

    Sorry @magicroundabout but it appears you've asked a few people for the same thing and you appear to be farming the offer. Everyone else, ignore his requests.

    I've asked once for my lad and now myself.

    You offered and I replied but because I got no response I asked again. Not sure how this is farming the offer!!!

    Undecided on a protector. On S7 edge tried one of the wet ones but it would lift on the edges when in a case . On the Note 8 didn't bother with a screen protector just a case. Gave the Note 9 to the wife who wants to throw it in a bag and will need a screen protector with a case. The edges are less curved so might be ok with a wet apply protector.

    I have always found the Samsung flip cases by far the best (but there not cheap)
    (I mainly always used the Samsung LED view cover flip cases with my S7e & Note 8 )

    I have tried other makes of flip cases (including Spigen) and found them much thicker and most don't have the magnet in them for turning the screen on & off when you open/close the case)

    First day of use I basically put the battery to the extreme. Was up at 5.30am for a flight and used it a shed load, playing games, listening to music via Bluetooth etc. Coped pretty well and eventually got to 5% in the evening.

    Ha seriously!!

    Yes I messaged yourself asking as I explained.

    Russell ignored my messages so I messaged yourself.
    I don't see how that is bad?!

    Apologies if this upsets yourself. It was merely a request.

    Ok enough of this now. Spartak, lmfy2k, G-MAN2004 & magicroundabout have all requested that if anybody doesn't play fortnite they'd appreciate the skin. I have provided magicroundabout with the skin for his son and he now would like the skin for himself.

    If anybody doesn't play fortnite and would like to help any of these guys out then they can get in touch with them but nobody should be contacting other members via trust to request it.
