It's not a lower model, its a 2021 model whereas this a 2020 one, just because its a A5X doesnt mean its worse than a A7X series phone It has a 720g which is basically identical to this model OIS + better main sensor, Newer GW3, this uses a GW1 120HZ The A52 is a better overall phone and the 5g variant has a faster SOC
Why da fok is a lower model better?
A52 is cheaper and better , much better camera setup, 120hz, Can be had on amazon spain for under £300, a52 5g is normally found also similar price

Great deal but a week too late for me, I went for the S20FE5G on EE 25GB/month at £696 total. I think the extra £43 I'll pay over 2 years is worth the better 5G coverage in my area with EE. Three unrivalled for traveling however
Had to find something as SIM only contract was coming to an end and upgrade "offer" was £41/month!
Thanks for sharing, @jofromk - nice find and first deal :)
I agree software is integral to the experience, my phone has 12GB RAM and there's a ROG phone now with 18GB. That RAM is mostly going unused. I average about 6GB RAM usage on my phone. With regard to Android it's made some relevant and important improvements over the years, there's perhaps too many to list. What I do agree with is that if you look at Apple for example they do have a 5+ years support for their phones with major OS and security updates. The best you'll get on Android is 3 years, so I agree support could be longer. The main issue with Android is the diversity of hardware which makes consistent upgrades over all hardware challenging. I think the real debate is not that Android had stagnated, it hasn't, it's that the software support is lacking on Android. Nvidia support their Android hardware the best. My 2015 Shield TV still gets updates, it doesn't get all the features of the latest Shield TV but still impressive support, they were the same with the Shield tablets they once produced.
Don't think it's the ONLy Samsung phone available in UK with SD processor S10 lite & A90 both have (but the older flagship)
The Samsung Galaxy Range
Korean giant Samsung is one of the biggest telecommunication companies in the UK, thanks to their hugely popular Galaxy range of phones and tablets. Millions of British phone users rely on their Samsung phones every day, and that number is constantly growing thanks to the quality of Samsung’s products. Whether you need a new Samsung phone or you are just getting acquainted with the brand, this buyer’s guide will explain everything you need to know when buying a product in the Galaxy range.
Samsung Galaxy: Advanced Mobile Phones and Tablets
Samsung have been around for decades (since 1938 in fact), but their mobile phone and tablet business is far newer. Even around the year 2000, Samsung produced relatively few phones, and companies like Ericsson or Nokia were far larger. However, by 2012, Samsung had become the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones, largely thanks to their Galaxy collection.
The first Samsung Galaxy phone appeared in 2009, not long after the Apple iPhone. Seeing the potential for smartphones early on, Samsung could see the speed at which the new technology was being embraced by worldwide phone users, so they introduced an all-purpose, high-quality smartphone at a lower price point than Apple’s premium models.
The initial Galaxy was soon followed by the Galaxy S which introduced touchscreen technology, and since then the company has released tens of updates, including the Galaxy S5, S6, S7, S8, A3, and A5. Recent innovations have also seen the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Edge. This so-called “phablet” is the major competitor to the iPhone's bigger versions and features no visible frame around the screen.
In the process of releasing new versions of the Galaxy, Samsung has continually refined the chips they use, with the result that the internal performance of Galaxy phones is among the highest-spec around. And they have also improved the delivery of firmware updates, keeping their Android-based OS up to date and secure.
There have been some hiccups along the way though. Most famously the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was prone to catching fire, resulting in a massive recall in mid-2016. However, Samsung have weathered that storm, and look set to continue to release high-performance Galaxy devices for years to come.
In fact, the Korean giant re-established its reputation successfully in 2017 and 2018, with the introduction of their S8 and S9 smartphone families. Carefully ensuring that the combustion issues of the past were taken car of, Samsung's new Galaxy phones took on Apple directly, taking the quality of smartphone screens to a totally new level.
What Can You Do With a Samsung Galaxy?
Samsung Galaxy devices cover quite a lot of ground, from full-on tablets (like the Galaxy Note) to phablets (like the Edge) and smaller smartphones (like the S7), and different models have different capabilities. As with all high-end smartphones, they can be used to take photos, listen to music, capture videos, stream TV and movies, send and receive e-mails, check social media, send SMS messages and, of course, make phone calls.
Galaxy phones also include features that are specific to Samsung’s devices. For example, they can take advantage of wireless charging, make payments via the Samsung Pay digital wallet, and use Samsung Smart Switch to transfer content across the various cloud-storage systems.
However, at their root, Samsung Galaxy devices are simply high-end versions of basic smartphones and tablets.
The Different Models of Samsung Galaxy Phones on the Market
If you’re a committed Samsung fan, or you’re just checking out their products for the first time, you’ll find a wide range of phones and phablets to choose from. Here are some of their most popular models:
The Samsung Galaxy A Series – In this case, the A refers to Android, and the first of the series arrived in 2014. Designed to be slightly more affordable than the S range, the various phones in the A range did almost everything the S range could do, while costing substantially less.
The Samsung Galaxy J Series – Often thought of as the budget version of the Galaxy, the J series has been around since 2013, but really hit its stride with the J5, released in 2015. More basic than the S and A range, but much cheaper, the J series is an ideal entry level smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 – Introduced in 2014, the S5 (unsurprisingly) built upon the S4 and is a medium sized touchscreen smartphone. Innovative new features included a heart rate monitor (handy for fitness lovers), IP67 water resistance, a fingerprint scanner, the ability to film in high definition 4K, HDR photos, USB 3.0 compatibility and a more efficient battery than ever before.
TheSamsung Galaxy S6– Unveiled in March 2015, the S6 came as an S6 smartphone or an S6 Edge phablet. This time around, customers could enjoy faster charging, smart management of RAM and disk storage and more custom themes, along with a generally leaner interface that improved performance. The camera was improved from the S5, as was the fingerprint reader. It all added up to a well-received product, which sold more units in its first month of sales than the S5 did in its lifetime. However, it's worth noting that the S6 did fall down in one respect: it isn't waterproof. So if you need a rainproof model, look elsewhere.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 – The S7 comes in S7, S7 Edge and S7 Edge+ varieties and was released in early 2016. The camera has been refined to improve the autofocus and deliver better photos at low light levels, the phone is more water resistant and supports up to 256GB of extra SD disk storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 – In April 2017, Samsung made a major announcement, releasing both the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ onto the market. The phones provide certain updates to their predecessors, like the Infinity Display that has no boundaries and is one of the biggest in this sector.
Samsung Galaxy S9 – Launched in February 2018, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ added more processing power, a better camera and a host of other features, offering a refinement of the S8's capabilities but not a revolution.
Along with these conventional smartphones, Samsung have also carved out a niche for themselves as the leading phablet manufacturer in the world, including:
The Samsung Galaxy Edge and Plus versions – As noted above, the S6 and S7 came in Edge and Edge+ varieties (with the plus denoting a slightly larger screen size). What sets these devices apart is their wraparound screens, which do away with the need for a bezel, creating a much larger screen size, while keeping the overall weight of the phone low. The processing capabilities and all-round quality of the Edge led them to be branded as “phablets”, halfway between a tablet and a smartphone, making them a hit with professionals who need a conveniently sized device, but one with the power to handle documents, audio and video processing.
Samsung Galaxy Smartphones: Specifications
So, that’s the basic range of Samsung Galaxy phones, or at least the most recently released models. It might help to drill down a little into their specifications, to get a feel for how the major models differ.

The S8+ is a slightly larger and heavier version of the S8, with slightly more battery life and a bigger screen. As you'd expect from a Samsung Galaxy phone, both feature the firm's famous stretched screen, which does away with side bezels and maximises the screen area. After feedback from Galaxy 7 users, Samsung took care to reduce reflectiveness, making both S8 models less susceptible to glare, while the screen's contrast and brightness was sharpened up as well.
Another innovation was the use of Bluetooth 5.0 (unlike most phones on the market). This made the S8 compatible with a wide range of smart devices, as well as capabilities like using two sets of wireless headphones with one phone at the same time. The 3.5mm headphone jack was retained, unlike contemporary Apple phones.
Samsung were also quick to assure customers that they had dealt with the combustion problems afflicting some Galaxy Note 7 devices, and introduced extra safety features. At the same time, the company claimed that their batteries had been made more efficient, retaining charge for longer than ever before, which was warmly welcomed by tech reviewers.
Both the S8 and the S8+ were intended to eventually be compatible with Bixby, Samsung's equivalent to Siri or Alexa. Bixby was designed to help users navigate the apps on their phone using voice commands, while also featuring a tie-in with Google that entitled owners to upload up to 100,000 tracks to Google Play – a handy inclusion for music fans who love to travel.
Looking at the S9 Family in a Little More Depth
The S9 and S9+ arrived in early 2018, and added a few new refinements to the S8 template. What didn't change was the almost bezel-free look which characterised the S8 and made it so revolutionary. Samsung realised that they had a hit with their new design, and used the S9 to make important under the hood adjustments instead of forcing wholesale changes.
Some changes were very slight but well-judged. For instance, the top and bottom bezels were shorn away even more, slightly extending the viewing area, while the fingerprint scanner was moved to just below the camera button. Other additions were more technical, such as beefing up the Exynos 9810 processor, which should deliver faster downloads and browsing speeds.
While the basic memory for most S9 models stayed at 4GB, the new S9+ increased memory to 6GB. And storage was expanded for higher end S9 phones as well, with as much as 256GB available if required.
Audio and visual performance was also boosted. The S9's speakers now catered for Dolby Surround Sound and had a bit more “punch”, while the camera was significantly improved. The S9 now included an auto-adjusting aperture to calibrate its perfectly to changing light conditions. And video was enhanced as well, with high resolution capture at 60fps, not 30fps.
As usual, the S9 family featured a major difference between standard and “+” models. The S9+ took the form of a phablet, with a noticeably larger display and more memory, as well as a higher battery capacity. Unsurprisingly, these additional features pushed its price tag up by a couple of hundred pounds as well.
Should You Choose a Standard or Plus Model of S8 or S9?
When it comes to Samsung Galaxy phones, it's important to know the difference between a “+” model or a standard model. The most important difference between the two versions is size. For instance, S9 models have 5.8-inch displays, while S9+ phones offer more space with 6.2-inch screens.
The extra screen size tends to make “+” model phablets better for stylus based apps, gaming and streaming video. However, this comes with extra weight, making them slightly less pocket-friendly. The battery capacity of the S8+ and S9+ is also larger than the S8 or S9, but don't be fooled: both styles will have comparable battery life owing to the demands of powering the S8+ and S9+'s larger screen.
The standard versions are much lighter to carry around and generally more ergonomic for making calls and gaming or browsing the web, and as far as many users are concerned, their core functionality doesn't vary much from the + varieties. But this may not be the case for all buyers. If you rely on apps or play games that push smartphones to the limit, the extra memory supplied with Plus model Galaxies could make a big difference.
In any case, it makes sense to shop around with HotUKDeals and get a feel for prices. If the S8+ or S9+ is cheap enough, why not go for it instead of the S8 or S9? But in truth, there's not much to choose between them.
How Do the S9 and S9+ Compare to the iPhone XS and XR Models?
The higher reaches of the smartphone world are dominated by one rivalry: Apple vs Samsung. Every year, the Galaxy family and Apple's iPhones go head to head as new versions are released, making it important for buyers to stay informed about how they measure up.
In 2018, the major match-up was between the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ and the iPhone XS and XR. If you picked up both models in-store, you might have been forgiven for struggling to tell them apart, because Samsung and Apple phones had rarely been so alike – at least from the outside.
Both phones sported stylish, almost bezel-free looks and screens which put previous models to shame. If anything, the iPhone XS was slightly smaller, but the two models were both on the larger end of the smartphone spectrum. However, thanks to its aluminium construction, the Galaxy S9 managed to weigh in at 163g compared to the XS' 177g.
However, there were some important differences. For instance, the S9/S9+ came with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which Apple had done away with. And the Samsung phones also included a MicroSD slot – another thing Apple decided to remove. In the audio department, both phones had high-quality speakers, but the S9's Dolby compatibility gave it a slight edge.
Both phones had excellent screens, but the Apple iPhone XS probably won out here, with a higher dynamic range and Dolby Vision support, so would probably be a better option for streaming fans.
Finally, there were crucial technical differences. Samsung's S9/S9+ used the Oreo Android build, while the XS used iOS12, and Apple's phone also introduced one of the fastest smartphone processors ever in the form of the A12 Bionic CPU. The consensus among experts was that this would deliver significant performance improvements compared to Samsung's Exynos chips.
But there's a catch for iPhone fans. Over the years, Apple's phones have often been criticised for offering relatively short battery lives, and the XS rated comparitively poorly against the S9 in this area, offering 2,700mAh against the 3,500mAh capacity of the S9+.
Even so, both the S9/S9+ range and the iPhone XS/XR were at the top of their class in 2018, and this was reflected in their price tags. As usual, Apple's phones came with a slightly higher price, but the S9/S9+ weren't that far behind, making it essential for buyers to find the best possible deals.
Different Models of Samsung Galaxy Tablet
Along with the various Samsung Galaxy smartphones and phablets we’ve already looked at, the Korean company also offers some slick Galaxy tablets that compare favourably with Apple’s iPad range. The two main varieties available include:
Samsung Galaxy Note – As noted above, the Galaxy Note has had its problems, but it is well established as a leading high-end smartphone/tablet. Available since 2011, the Note has built its sales pitch around the use of stylus pens to interact with its touchscreen. Every single model includes a specially adapted stylus as part of the package, and the screen has been refined over the years to provide a reliable, responsive tool for writing and freehand drawing. Since 2014, the Note has also been available in an Edge variety, without the bezel, just like Samsung’s galaxy smartphones. Galaxy Note 7 models were made unavailable due to the product recall, but you will find deals for Note 6s and 2017's Galaxy Note 8. August 2018 also saw the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which offered 8GB of RAM (in its most expensive version), a faster processor, and a much-improved battery life. This made it the tablet of choice for gamers who wanted a smallish device with plenty of power.
Samsung Galaxy Tab – More of a classic tablet size than the hybrid Galaxy Note, the Tab has been around since 2010 and is a high-performance Android tablet. More recent versions like the Galaxy Tab S4 and the Tab A 10.5 feature 10.5 inch displays, Windows interfaces, Dolby Atmos sound, and the ability to easily pair tablets with phones.
Samsung Galaxy Tablets: Specifications
Samsung’s tablets tend to be at the higher end of the tablet market, and are particularly useful because of their compatibility with Microsoft Windows. Routinely praised for their speed, stylus performance and battery life, they are a great option for creative professionals who see the appeal of jotting down work notes or diagrams as they go, and they are also ideal for students.
Here are the basic specifications of the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, 2016’s iteration of the Galaxy tablet series:
Things to Think About Before Buying Samsung Galaxy Products
There’s little doubt that Samsung’s Galaxy range is right at the top of the current crop of smartphones and tablets (and phablets too for that matter). However, that doesn’t mean you should rush out to make a purchase. The tech market is incredibly competitive, with a wide range of price points.
Generally speaking, the choice boils down to Apple or Samsung for many people. On the plus side, Samsung offers Android phones, which makes them easier to customise and provides access to the huge Google Play database. Their designs tend to be reliable (though so do Apple’s) and their latest phones always keep pace with innovation. You can be sure that the next wave of Samsung Galaxy phones will have easy electronic wallet functions and slicker interfaces because it’s a key part of their corporate approach.
However, few of these things differentiates Samsung much from Apple. The truth is that a Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is very similar to an iPhone XS/XR in most respects, and this includes their relatively high price. That’s fine if you are willing to pay extra for a top of the range phone, but there’s no real need. Lower spec Galaxy phones like the A range are ideal for everyday users, so users may wish to leave the S phones for professionals and show-offs. You can save hundreds of pounds by simply choosing a phone that does what you need it to do, and nothing more.
How to Find Samsung Galaxy Deals
Whether you are purchasing a turbocharged S9+, a nifty little A6 or J8, or a Note 9 for business use, choosing the right vendor to buy your Samsung Galaxy device from is essential.
The first thing to do is to check the HotUKDeals listings and find out which merchants in your area are running Samsung Galaxy deals. Typically, you’ll find offers from high street names like Currys, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco, Argos and many other shops. Then, visit the store, ask about the phone and decide whether it has the features you need.
Double check the HotUKDeals listings at this point: there may be online sellers like Amazon, uSwitch, Very or the official Samsung shop at www.samsung.com offering deals that undercut high street shops. When you’ve found a deal you like, just use our portal to head to the purchasing page.
If you can hold out until Black Friday in late November, it’s a great time to make your purchase. Retailers (and Samsung themselves) will cut their prices as the festive buying season nears, so be sure to check the listings regularly.
Find Great Samsung Galaxy Offers at HotUKDeals
Whether you need a high spec tablet, a top of the line smartphone or a budget phone with the capabilities of a much more expensive model, the Samsung Galaxy range could be for you. You’ll find deals on every kind of Galaxy model at HotUKDeals, so bookmark our Samsung Galaxy listings. There’s no better way to cut the price of upgrading your mobile devices.
Yeah I'm always a bit suspicious about these "new" phones from ebay sellers. I'm sure it'll work fine, and is new as described, but has probably just been drop-shipped directly from Hong Kong, and hence no warranty to speak of beyond what the eBay seller themselves offer. You may as well just buy it from wondamobile yourself if you don't care about it being a UK model, with a UK warranty, and save a bit of money by cutting out the middleman
do you know how long is the warranty?

The battery dies too quickly. If I don't get a chance to charge my phone at work, my battery would be dead before the end of my shift. I only do so while at work though, but that's 5 days out if a 7 day week (fierce) 8 to 9 hours out of each day...
This is down to roughly £870 now if you use a fee free card. Actually contacted WowCamera to cancel my original order today and try and switch to this but they informed me it's just been dispatched this morning. Probably not worth the hassle to RMA and get hit with potential postage/restocking fees now so will stick with it but this deal is an absolute bargain from a solid seller.
Wtf, why would you do that???
Anyone know the next cheapest place to get one with the UK Wararnty?
It's good, accept for the fact I have to keep the phone in extreme power saving mode, if its gonna last a whole day without recharging It's a total ball ache having access to only 8 apps at a time, and not being able to use multi screen
S20+ is the best in this range. not too big and camaras always work well. Id avoid this.
My pleasure, plenty of time for you to find a case. I use a lens protector as there have been several instances of the lens glass shattering due to size (though there are reports of pressure build up too!) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spigen-Protector-Hardness-Friendly-Anti-Scratch/dp/B0844KGLZJ/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=s20+ultra+lens+protector&qid=1621031787&sprefix=S20+ultra+lens&sr=8-3
Thank you nice to get feed back from a owner. Excited to get mine next week.
I've come from a note 9 and mi mix 3 and I love it. Lovely screen, fantastic speakers, decent battery. Felt rather weighty for a few weeks after I got it but now I'm used to it.
YUP TRIED MINES,AND IT WORKS....WAS GONNA GO FOR THE FE WORKED OUT COSTS FOR 24 MONTHS, WITH MY SIM FREE 5G DEAL AND WORKED OUT MORE EXPENSIVE THEN GETTING A 5G CONTRACT WITH EE. OPTED WITH EE AS ALSO GET A 30% EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT SO HAPPY DAYS.
Would anyone know what ruff price i would get for a IPhone 8 64g Black, immaculate ? Thanks im sure David.
Anyone that was having the IMEI issue on trade in discount where it was saying the code was used having any luck now? It's no longer saying that for me, but it wont let me confirm the discount. Will hopefully be resolved before the 15% discount expires.
There are some bargains to be had on ebay atm mate. Amazon have reduced them as well
@MrSwitch - Do you know of any good deals on Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G (Snapdragon version). Looks like a better option to go for the older S20 than the new S21 with Exynos processor
Massive difference and step up, mainly batter power mine says lasts 15 hours with a full charge, S9 was quite poor especially in the 2nd year of having it. I love mine and for £349 after discount and trade in for mine was a no brainer. From what i read the S21 isn't a massive upgrade from the S20.
Hey what's the FE like compared to the S9 I have an S9 myself, wondered if I should get FE or bump up some extra dosh for the S21?
Eh, for me an under screen camera so the folding screen doesn't have a hole punch would be worth a bit extra and that's rumoured this time around. I'm hoping they change the hinge to create a less aggressive fold in the screen since there are folks out there with hairline cracks in the centre of the fold
It's a no for me specs not good enough
Exactly and from what I've seen of the rumours so far there's not any major improvements unlike the Fold 1 to Fold 2 which seemed worth waiting for. I went for the £970 deal on the Fold 2 from Amazon.de thinking even if the Fold 3 came out the day after, I wouldn't be buying it for a long time anyway since there's no way I'd pay £1800+ for a device like this plus it's not going to have a notification light or headphone socket and unlikely it would add SD support either. So far I absolutely adore the phone as it works so well in the tablet mode, it's a really nice size and weight to hold while giving a lot more usable space. I was concerned about software support both for supporting two different screens and the individual screens being strange aspect ratios but I find most software works well, some applications request a restart when switching screens and Nova Launcher/Swiftkey can't have two active configurations. I did think the outer screen was just too narrow given it's a good bit thinner than a standard phone but it works fine for checking notifications and basic app use, otherwise I prefer to use the inner screen anyway..
Can they fold open to a 7.6 inch screen?
I paid 1800 for mine at Christmas. Still loving this phone and had no issues whatsoever. You'll get asked all the time what it is and people wanting to have a look and to unfold it. Apart from that, it has been, and continues to be amazing
Anyone help me out. I got some oft the Samsung Live Buds - wearing Garmin on the left wrist the connection keeps breaking up when running - if I move the Garmin to my right hand it is fine. Are the Samsung buds right dominant or can I make the left one the main bud to pair the Garmin with. It seems rubbish that one arm is fine the other is not - I had this on some 15 quid QCYs paired with an Amazfit where I was willing to put up with it and switch buds around. But I cant do that with the Buds live and this combo is best part of 500 quid rrp - so it should work
Thank you I am confident it will be fine and I am one of the last people to buy a phone of ebay but this looks good so fingers crossed 🤞
You're welcome and sorry to be frank, eBay is a minefield. Make those checks and hope all is well and you like phone :)
I am normally against buying secondhand phone but did investigate this and seems legit but we will see and @MrSwitch recommend them to some one to buy a fold phone as well and all seems ok but thank you for the heads up as it is spmthing to be wary off.
Thsnl you I got all them messages on my eBay so I will raise a dispute if anything goes wrong but they told me 28 day return so I will see. They also pick phone up if there is a fault and I got 28 day guarantee if I change my mind
Someone who apparently used to work for Samsung said that about scratched-S/Nos in another thread. Opened items are usually used, it's common sense, that's why Samsung applies a seal that leaves a mark when broken. Used for weeks or for months?, that's real question; you'll need to check charging cycles too. Anyway it's always pot luck when it's not brand new, so hope you're lucky
Will this come with any drawbacks from having an imported model? Features not working, etc (WiFi Calling?)
Completely agree. I haven't forgotten how bad they were at repairing my S7 edge, Ihad a very similair experience with their local "repair centres". They didnt have a replacement screen in stock, they wouldnt order one nor would they book my phone in so i had to send it to their national repair centre- i was without a phone for over 2 months. I got fed up of Samsung fobbing me off and not giving any updates so i went and bought an iPhone 7+ and sold the S7 edge when they eventually could be bothered to send me a replacement (after i had to lodge a formal complaint). I never had that problem with Apple. Ive only just bought a Note 10+ (used) but thankfully ive insured it so i dont have to deal with samsung customer services!
Because of the Snapdragon?
Heat for the 888
Posted 12th MayPosted 12th MayShipping from GermanyShipping from Germany
They have Snapdragon for lots of their midrange phones. Sometimes they have Exynos or Mediatek though.
Samsung switched to snapdragon now for its new phones?
Hope you like new phone, keep us informed
I'm disappointed with the Exynos 990. It's possibly Samsung's worse chipset so I'm put off with Exynos for the time being. Back to Snapdragon for me (lol) (lol) I've just read the review of the A42 5G on GSM Arena and it's very positive in every aspect, so I'm really looking forward to this phone coming 😃😃 Oh, and I don't even live in a 5G area haha but I'm hoping to move soon and that will be a 5G area. I use my phone as a wireless hotspot as I've given up my broadband so 5G would be awesome.
Didn't you think of A51 5G, for the chip not 5G? I might not even activate 5G if I find a good deal... massive screen (for me :D )...but not enough for you (embarrassed) S10 Lite is also on my watchlist, that screen is also 6.7"...a super-midranger
Thanks Jez, I have a GPS and separate smart watch and looking to combine them into one device. Cheers
You can run golf apps yes, the golf edition gives you free lifetime premium on smart caddie but the reviews are shocking so probably not worth it, I've just installed golf pad and all looks good although I obviously haven't played a round with it yet.
Does anyone know if you can run golf GPS apps on this or is there a specific golf version?
