    At the end of the day the Z is pretty naff. Being easy to scratch at the same time just makes it even easier to avoid.

    Correct, but it's better than the Razr and we won't see a flip phone with 100% glass for a long while yet due to actual physics.

    Cheers. My wife has decided to keep her S10e, it's still a great phone and she would need to buy wireless headphones and they don't have the black version for the S20 :p.

    As far as i am aware all phones that come with no headphone jack still come with earphones just the end would be a usb c. as apposed to the normal headphone jack.

    So my old man is about to turn the big 60 in a few weeks, he has an old Samsung A1, A2, something like that, I'm hoping to get him the S10 if it drops to around the £400 mark due to the S20 being announced.

    Failing the S10 dropping that low, is the S9 still worth considering or is a 400 quid A Something worth a look at? Either way its going to be a massive upgrade over his current phone with its 2gb of storage.

    In my experience I would say even the S10e is a significantly superior phone to the S9 and you definitely should be able to pick one of those up for well under £400.

    It's pretty clear the context intended given the rest of the post (s) was in relation to proper haptic feedback not just a motor vibrating as has been the case for years on Android. So yeah it could be called actual haptic feedback as that's what it is.

    I think the LG G7 may have had early-ish versions of this too to be fair.

    I have a Huawei p20 Pro just now and am tempted by the S20+ or Ultra.

    Has Samsung until the S8.

    None whatsoever unfortunately. My previous post was based on experience from my own S10e and the mother-in-law's S9. Although I did mention over on another thread that the Galaxy A Series phones have come a long way and I'd even consider one as my next investment as these 'second tier' phones have really upped their game.

    They are significantly different phones - 5.8" vs 6.7". The S10e is a compact flagship with no big compromises, while the A71 appears (from GSMArena's recent review) to fall short in a number of areas.

    I'm just trying to find best bang for my buck really, this is a phone that'll last 5+ years, so the more advanced the better really.

    I’d put a vote in the S10e then, If it was between those two.

    anyone used the samsung upgrade program?

    Considering it.

    logic being i always upgrade my phone after 2 years.

    so pay £40-£50 per month for whatever phone package, 2 years later upgrade.

    or

    pay £30-£35 for phone for 12 months and sim only deal £15-£20 and get new phone after 12 month and repeat.

    has anyone used the program and can tell me what happens at 12 months?
