I think these days the Xiaomi are better for your buck than Samsung, Samsung seems too have increased prices too much.

Samsung bias my end, as I know the A range is so close to the S10 Plus I have, at a 3rd of the price.
How much are you paying for your current tariff?

£485.99 up front cost, £24 a month for the tariff - 10GB data, unlimited voice and texts, for a s20 plus 5G

I can't fathom how to link direct to the deal.
o2 as network, slide the month cost below £30 and upfront cost to the max. Its the 2nd one down
Don't pick the 5gb option as its the same price.
You also get a galaxy watch active to claim for free.

But you may already be locked into - or don't need- a high tariff.

Might be a naff deal but i bought one anyway.

I've claimed the watch and it should be with me within 30 days.

They all appear to share the same mast by me.I got a sim from each network and tested the speeds on each at teh same times.

All were within a mb of each other, i have just renewed hence the testing of all network speeds.

Another call for the Mi 9T Pro...or even the non pro and save soem cash as if you aren't big into gaming you really won't see any difference in performance with the non pro.

With Xiaomi overpricing the Mi 10 in Europe the Mi 9T is really the current Xiaomi value flagship, that said the Xiaomi K30/ Poco F2 range might be worth a look also if they are priced right when they hit Europe.

If your happy buying from China/HK all of the above can be picked up a good chunk cheaper .....

Also have a look at the Samsung S10/Note10 Lite's.....Both usually priced around £400 from Wowcamera (another HK shop though)
Best wait a couple of weeks for the release of the Google Pixel 4a, then decide. Price expected to be at £399

Will have the best camera for photos at that price point.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
£270 laptopsdirect

If camera is priority, wait for pixel 4a
