    There was (or still is?) a deal with Vodafone for similar amount (£36 a month, £50 up front, 24months), I rang up and ask for a PAC code and they matched it. Well, £70 more but I get tether with it and Vodafone don't.

    Finally received my XS Max from the Vodafone Black Friday deal. Its lovely, however the screen has a fairly obvious yellow tint and seems to have a very noticeable colour shift when tilting the phone only a few degrees.
    The colour shift results in the yellow tint disappearing and the white become perfect! I wouldn't mind if the shift was only at extreme angles but this seems to happen with the slightest of movements meaning its very noticeable in everyday use.

    It seems to be a fairly wide spread issue looking at the forums. If it turns out I just have a dud does anyone know if I can I do an exchange in the Apple Store or would I need to arrange this via buymobiles.net?

    Mrs got her XR through the mobiles deal, it arrived yesterday. I have an X and I must say, the size of the XR feels perfect compared to the XS Max I have tried. First impressions are good, it's a nice phone.

    I'll be an XR owner tomorrow when it arrives, 64gb in Coral which will be hidden in a case, Colleague shown me her Red XR and it's a lovely looking phone, screen looks much nicer than my 7.

    Phone is arriving today, but completely forgot to get a case.

    On the whole, I hate phone cases - they feel really cheap and make the phone overly bulky.

    What would everyone recommend? Something like the fabric Google ones would be great, or a nice leather one (though the Apple ones are quite pricey!)

    Apple Leather case every time for me, brown one gets a great patina over time, feels great and doesn't add much bulk.

    Just very pricey for what it is :(

    Edit: was hoping Harber London would do one, but they don't :/

    Recommendations on a screen protector?

    I'm using/used the Belkin invisi-glass ultra screen for my iPhone X and previously 6S without issue :cool:

    Re case: The Apple leather case every time!

    I’ve always used the Apple leather cases, they look great and give good protection everywhere.. except the bottom bezel which can still get scuffed if you’re not careful. They look great though. Also, you tend to find the leather can become somewhat sticky over the course of a year compared to when new when it feels amazing.

    I have the leather case for my Max. However I am currently trying the Spigen Ultra Hybrid clear case and I’m quite impressed so far. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to the leather case.

    Bought myself the Anker one for the XS - will install today. I generally buy ones that have an "easy fit" method, as it's just less hassle. £6.99 on Amazon - worth checking to see if they do it for the XR
