    Ok,
    I am definately getting the 10+ Aura glow 256gb with 5G....call me a fan of the note series and new tech in general.

    Only debate is who is offering the best deal?
    So far only offer I have seen for trade in etc is John Lewis or Argos are offering an extra £100 on trade in value when trading my note 9 512gb in with samsung. This is available through the attached website
    https://www.samsungtradeinoffer.co.uk/promo/johnlewis#claim

    But I have noticed when checking value of my phone it would be worth £370 with the bonus.....
    While samsung offer £400 trade in outright. Even Music Magpie offer £400

    Any better trade ins or deals people have seen???

    We could get into a whole new debate about how much these companies simply supply the demand as opposed to shaping it ;)

    Yep, very underwhelming.

    The more reviews I watch the less impressed I get with it.

    Think I'll stick with my tenner a month on VOXI than waste a £1K+ for essentially the same thing with a few pointless upgrades.

    Sad the state of upgrades these days :(

    How do I get away from that wanting to buy a new mobile phone itch every time a shiny new model comes out :p

    (I have a Note 8 & Note 9.. :o)

    Just out of curiosity... one is a sim card, the other is a phone? :confused:

    I've got a Note 8 which was on contract, ended 2 months back so I went SIM only with VOXI in the hope of the Note 10 being something worth buying when it came out. It isn't, so I'll stick with my £10 a month for 8GB and save myself a small fortune :)

    It really depends on whether you want something to knock your socks off or not.. it's only ever going to be incremental if you upgrade incrementally.. that said you'll likely get better returns for your newer phone so the leap is less expensive in relative terms if you do it constantly.

    I never bothered doing the maths but I remember when I went through my iPhone phase I used to upgrade every year and it was in the region of £300ish I think to move.. then my GF kept her 6S literally forever and when it came time to change if she wasn't going to a work phone it would have been a relative fortune as the 6S was worthless.

    Shiny is good if you're happy paying the money, just go into it with correct expectations :)

    I think 5G would be the game changer here.. certainly what I'm hoping for, something's got to make Vodafone work lol

    Oh god yeah.. I'll be honest I've never really grasped this expensive contract thing. I come from a time when a phone was whatever the phone was and then the contract was whatever the contract was.. The idea of getting on for £100 a month for 2 years is insane IMO

    Go into a shop, put your Note 9 next to it and play with both.

    Once you see how similar they are and what you're getting for the money you might walk away feel better about not getting one.

    That didn't work for when I went into a shop and compared my note 8 to the note 9 :o

    I admit the colour looked different :p

    I was quite lucky with my Note 8, I got it for £28 per month on O2 and £200 upfront which is about £870 all in, only about £20 more than the SIM free price on release. Sold my S6 Edge+ for over £200 so wasn't too bad really.

    Then there is no hope, you may as well just pre order :p

    The problem with 5G is it not going to be much use having these higher speeds if the networks still set low data limits

    Precisely.. I'm sim only on Vodafone paying £20 for 20gb and unlimited texts (lol) and minutes (whatever) so £30 for unlimited everything and the highest possible speed appeals. Surprised it's so reasonable tbh

    It's interesting that Samsung in the eu\uk don't offer an option to trade in an s10 model against the note, but in the U.S. they do. But overall we pay more and get a lower spec of phone compared to the U.S. model?

    It's not interesting, it's just how UK and European markets always get screwed compared to Uncle Sam users. That's without getting into whole Exynow vs SD comparison.
