I’m not familiar with this O2 thingy and always buy phones direct from manufacturers anyway so can’t help, sorry. Samsung tend to sell their phones for two peanuts and a few pebbles if you trade in anything, no?
I felt the same. Although it’s the same for the iPhone Apple somehow manage to keep up the excitement to some extent which I think is down to their excellent keynotes.
I’ve been saying this for years but the shiny always takes over. This year I fully expect to be upgrading to get back on the Max train (sorry regular Pro people but this thing is tiny and battery life is crap) and for that maybe-USB-C charger.
I was going to buy through PAW but they offer a lower trade in value to make up for the discount on the phone, so it was cheaper overall to buy from Samsung without the PAW discount, and trade in my current phone and also made £30 from topcashback.
Fair, the Play Store has been better in recent years, but it’s still full of mostly garbage - but the iOS Appstore is too… I kept seeing adverts for the freemium game “Family farm adventure” the game is nothing like the adverts (No, i haven’t spent money in it, I outright refuse)
I am just glad that Samsung finally caved and gave everyone the same SnapDragon processor. I think it’s likely that they’re inhouse Exynos was just too different in the camera department
after one of the updates i could no longer update apps through google play without a factory reset first , after 5 resets i had had ennough and swapped to an oppo , still miss my huawei p30 pro and would jump back to it in a heart beat but the no google play makes it a no no
They usually have a cashback deal of their own running, then layer on TopCashback (or similar), plus cashback from a credit card, plus trade in + usually an additional reduction for trading in, plus a discount code… you can pretty much get them down to half price.
Ah… Oops. May as well use my friends, Friends and Family code, if I want the phone, both give me 25% off the Airtime plan, except there’s no limit on what phones I can/can’t use it with, unlike the o2 Open discount
