A lot of phone for the money. Not sure about reliability
Sooner somebody comes up with a phone lease shop so I can try all these phones, the better.

Fee free mate, slightly more for a pleb like you, I'll edit now, when I went to checkout it wouldn't let me pay in pounds for some reason.

Yeah, that's a bit of a kick in the snads, but I bet as soon as they get them in stock, which is usually sooner than stated, this will sky rocket again in price.

Very true and Amazon don’t take until dispatch.

My personal issue is that I’ve sold my iPhone 8 Plus to musicmagpie so the 28day clock is already ticking haha!

Yeah, it's mental the amount of phones we've seen released this year so far, or maybe I'm just looking more!

What's on your radar?

Right now, the Mi9, Mi Mix 3, OnePlus 7 (not pro), Honor 20... Honor V20 and a few more higher end ones and then the Xperia 10 Plus was sitting on my radar when it was £250, the A70 now it’s got £60 cashback from cpw and now this... I’m kinda spoilt for choice really.... glorious time to be alive when it comes to tech.... to be honest I’m just looking forward to being back on Android after 2 years on iOS!

Yeah it's a different world, out of all them, I'd probably go for the mi 9, it has all the basic specs of a premium phone without the cost.

The view 20 would be up there as well, if it weren't for the LCD panel in it, I thought it was great at first, then I took it outside, and as I work outside most of the time it was annoying.

Even at full brightness it was still hard to see in the sun.

I bought the View 20 on launch from Argos but took it back when the Huawei “scare” was happening as it was all up in the air at the time, maybe I’ll wait for the Honor 20 to drop and see how that reviews before buying anything.

Just too much choice at the moment! Will take your Mi 9 recommendation as I really like Xiaomi phones. Never had one of their flagships though!

In an ideal world I’d be all over a Blackberry flagship but they seem to be releasing overpriced midrange stuff at the moment which is doing nothing for me :/

No mate, I have signed up to the mailing list on Black Shark website for stock on the 12gb/256gb Black Shark 2 after watching Jerryrigeverything’s tear down, looks a good all rounder other than the cameras - but they seem an improvement on last years and it’s not like I’m a budding amateur photographer! I don’t even have Instagram or anything to post on.... Any thoughts on that device?

Yeah, looks fantastic, performs well, watch tech tablets review on it, bit of a mixed bag, but he compares it to the mi 9, which in my honest opinion is a pretty boring phone.

Will give that a watch now on my three hour train journey home, thanks for the heads up - there aren’t many decent reviews on YouTube. I’m not a mobile gamer, I have my PC/consoles for that malarkey but the spec vs price vs build are looking really good for the BS2!

They are certainly tempting, you stick the SD855 and people go crazy, especially at that price point!

I currently have the old ZenFone Z012DA (ZenFone 4) and at 3 years old it's still a good phone though I was looking for this one at a good price.
