Are the fingerprint and face id issues on these sorted out?

I'm not even sure where the boundaries between budget and premium phones are these days. You find 4gb ram on some premium phones and 6gb on budget phones, LG don't even put the latest processors in their flagships and Google's camera and software are the only real premium features on their flagships which you can now find on their budget phones. Throw in infrequent updates (Samsung and LG) and the possibility of a frozen OS (Huawei) and people are starting to get a bit fatiqued by it all. No wonder everyone's starting to flock to Xiaomi: good prices, decent features, fast updates.

Great price for this BTW!

While I agree with the overall sentiment, LG have used the Snapdragon 855 in their latest flagships, the G8 and V50, and used the 845 last year in the G7 and V40. They've created various weird offshoot phones that don't use the top tier chipsets, but the last time they missed it from a core flagship model was the G6 when supply of the 835 was still extremely limited.

Yeah, I realise that LG have pulled their socks up somewhat but there's almost always some kind of issue with their phones. I'm an LG fan but they leave a lot to be desired sometimes and their track record on updates is nigh on appalling.

I am confused, assuming the phone is Hong Kong stock, the Samsung HK page doesn't have 4G Band20 listed ? samsung.com/hk_…GY/
If it's missing, will one not get 4G on, let's say, O2?

The global version as in this op has all 4 UK major bands, you will be referring to the Chinese version which lacks band 20, but this one 100% does

Pie knocking on our door soon, along with May security...(G7 ThinQ)

Memory/battery management still not mastered, always high use of mine = too many background processes running. Battery life shortened as result obviously.

(My Huawei P20 on the other extreme, being so over-aggressive/un-smart, killing HUKD every time I optimise, despite being white-listed; but battery life much better)

Also some surprising (SD 845!!!) lag in the interface, loading some sub-menus; this will hopefully be improved with upcoming software upgrade

Then there's camera not at same level of other flagships, but I'm less bothered. V40, G8 must have upped game.

No, didn't mean that. I meant European sellers, GB among best of Chinese bunch, not bad price with them considering phone just been launched.

I also have to concede trade-in deals/cashback in Samsung site sweeten their high prices, just worried models struggling, especially camera quality.

A series also targeted at Indian/other markets with massive screens/batteries, with Xiaomi Note 7 being sold by Amazon IT for £170 they just don't stand a chance (even with Xiaomi shooting itself on foot due to lack of NFC)

I'd say the note 7 and the A70 are pretty much on par from my hands on time with them, and it would be a hard choice between the two at current price (trade in for A70) if and when the A70 goes back to £369, then obviously the Xiaomi comes out on top again.

We westerners (or at least a lot of hukd users) appreciate big screens and big batteries, those were the two reasons I bought the A70, the only reason I returned it was the finger print scanner.

Yeah that's what I was saying, quality issues with A series, at £170 price point maybe forgivable, not higher

Indian market (2nd biggest) seems a lot more forgiving, selling well there apparently

I think frankly there's limited appeal for super-massive, 6.4"+ models in Europe, maybe I'm wrong, I kind of think more ergonomic models starting to make comeback

...and you're right to do so. With Samsung phones it's a different story, depending on model/where you buy it.

This thread is about a smartphone, I think it'd be misleading to suggest there's no software support by Samsung for its smartphones.

Were I on your shoes, I'd probably do the same regarding the brand. Plenty of great phones around...

Yeah that falls into the "weird offshoot" category I was talking about, Christ knows what possessed them to release that phone! Presumably they still had buckets of 821s leftover from when the G6 tanked, but if they'd had the sense to throw them into a compelling midranger rather than a faux flagship it could have done a lot better.

Either way it's hardly indicative of wider industry trends.

Exactly, a snappy 675 would have given it a good go, ut putting an old flagship in a phone spells disaster sales wise.

Faux (& failed) flagship is what G6 turned out to be, at least with G7 line they didn't try to disguise that: flagship ThinQ + two very good midrangers (better One than Fit, probably just One was enough - little in mid-market to challenge it)
But they didn't get pricing right, as usual, so no success in the end
