Had your eye on the latest A series, then this deal may be for you, £319 in most other places, unsure if this will be an import or not, I'd guess yes, so may not come with manufacturer warranty

Post it?
How do these compare to the 9T pro at a similar price range?
Literally scroll down the eBay page this goes to and there's one for £248 , unlocked, any colour .

Worse than the 9t pro, processor for a start. I'd go pro if it were me.

HK based ebay sellers have never been allowed on here, shame as there are a shed load of bargains from HK sellers on eBay, and safer to buy from than other HK sellers imo.
Have you used any of the HK based eBay sellers switchy?

2, DWI International (or Eglobal to give them their proper name) and Battery262 I think they're called.
They seem to get mixed reviews. Has your experience been generally positive?

Two phones, both came within a couple weeks, no issues for me
Thought that was the S20. Seeing as it's leaked so much I thought they would just release it early. Apparently looks like this near enough.

They all look the same... that's the problem. Their A series are getting really good these days and even things like the S10 Lite are overshadowing the 'flagships'.

I don't like the cameras on the Samsung lite models, the reason to go for a fully fledged Samsung, well one reason is the variable aperture that few other phones have. 12 MP, f/1.5-2.4, 26mm (wide), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS. That's the camera spec for the main wide angle camera on the S10. The S10 Lite has a quad bayer pixel binning 48mp fixed aperture f/2.0. So you can either have the S10e with variable aperture camera but Exynos so no reliable gcam mods or you can have the S10 lite with Snapdragon but the camera isn't as good. Of course all of this is null and moot if you don't care about photography. I can grumble about Android and photography apps on Android but I don't want to write a thesis on here about it

Are there any Android phones around this price where you would recommend the camera? I’m after a new phone and photography is the main selling point for me. Thank you

Yes, I agree, but for most, the cameras will be 'more than good enough' on the A-series and S Lite series. Cameras are just about the only reason people might need to upgrade these days - a good example there is the iPhone 11 Pro, I'm still using an XS Max as it's 'good enough' (still very good) but otherwise it's basically no key improvements to the hardware. Then again I was just chatting to a friend about this who has a Note 10 Plus and he sent me a picture taken on his Sony DSC-HX300 of the moon and I realise that no matter how good phones get, proper dedicated cameras will always have their place.

Note 10 plus camera was great when I had it, I felt the huawei I'm using again took better photos in certain situations. There isn't a perfect camera phone out there, there's a best in class, none are perfect imo

Anything really that has 48MP or 64MP and snapdragon chipset, the quad bayer / pixel binning will give you a 12MP pixel image and you should be able to experiment with a gcam mod which is the Google camera app modded to have the Pixel computational photography features, the pictures tend to be a bit too dark on gcam mods, so some editing is required but it'll take decent photos without you needing to have any manual control if you just want point and click and great photos.

The Xiaomi range of photos of which there's many have decent specs for this money, just make sure you get one with Snapdragon as for example the Xiaomi Note 8 Pro has 64MP camera instead of 48MP on the non pro but it uses a Mediatek chipset instead of Snapdragon. Don't be fooled by MP it's the sensor you want and these use decent enough Sony IMX sensors. Xiaomi Mi 9 is decent enough, bad time to buy a phone now, wait until March as most of the 1st wave of 2020 flagships will be out by then and prices on 2019 phones will inevitably fall.

Very true.
I wish they kept the design on the back like the S10 though.

Atleast the Note 10 looks a bit different to others
This will most likely be an import - hopefully European and not HK or UAE - so be careful to check the UK charger (if they have put one with it) isn't fake and that the software gets security updates.. Also check the IMEI with Samsung when you get it to see if it has a warranty and if not return it.
