Good to hear, I was tempted by it myself but I'm going to wait to see what the Nokia 9 offers.

Am I right in thinking the Honor 9 is dual SIM?

Yeah it is. But bear in mind.. If you use the tray for two SIM cards you can't put a memory card in. The tray can either be used for a SIM and a memory card, or two SIM cards.

Had the phone a while now and very pleased with it. Fingerprint scanner is insanely fast. Phone itself is so much faster than what I was used to, although to be fair I hadn't upgraded in a few years and was using an HTC One M8. Had to buy a case for it as the glass back makes the phone very slippery. Have installed Nova launcher which makes the phone even better IMO.

I get my insurance through Nationwide as part of their added benefits account. Includes breakdown cover and travel insurance, too.

Cheers chaps. Does that come with 24 hour replacement? i.e. if you have a problem do you get a new phone delivered the next day?


In fact, does anyone else have this service or just me? It's kinda keeping me in a deal I might otherwise leave ...

So you really not have an old phone kicking around that you could use in case you actually needed one and disn’t take the 24 the replacement coverage.

FWIW I don’t have any phone insurance at all.

No, I don't as I've always had the replacement service insurance, and the last time I changed phones was 5 years ago!! (Hence the questioning, my often replaced but still five year old phone is getting a bit silly now).

No it doesn't have the 24 hour replacement. We have the account and have used the insurance. Had to send the damaged phone to a repair centre. They then sent a new replacement but took a few days. Didn't mind as had a spare and it is an additional benefit for account holders. We got the account for its high interest rate and inclusive travel insurance.

In the third world here - and relative economies permitting, just got a Samsung Galaxy J5 for 90 quid. I am thinking that is a good price for the kit.

Just read some disappointing reviews of the pixel 2. Real shame, the first pixel is great. Why have they copied the stupid apple no headphone jack thing.

Just about to pull the trigger on buying a Sony XZ1 compact for $520 in the US.

Anything else comparable in price I should be looking at?

If you particularly want a phone that is a compact size, I don't think you'll get a better phone tbh.

I think $520 is just under £400 here... for that you would probably look at the Huawei P10 or P10 Lite.
