Dropped it and shattered the screen.

Got someone coming out to my workplace today to fit an OEM replacement screen, with a 12 month warranty, for 150.

He comes well recommended and covers Kent, Surrey and Sussex, so will pop the details on here later if I'm pleased with it.

O2 website have recently been selling 'as new' unlocked customer returns Huawei Mate 20 Pro for 152 (rolling one month contract which you can cancel) unfortunately have been out of stock for a while but occasionally still comes up. Also selling brand new for 252 (plus rolling contract) and in stock. Picked one up at 152 and liking it so far and appears to unaffected by google issues on this model (unlike Mate 30 Pro) and has an excellent camera set up a bargain if you can pick one up.

How long do people generally keep their phones for? My OP5 is two and a bit years old and I'm perfectly content with it. Camera is a bit naff relative to what is out there now, but it's pretty quick for the most part.

But the OP7T does, as TAK says, look very tempting. I'll probably keep this one until next summer though.

Replaced the screen on my OP3 for the second time today for 23. Performance is still decent and camera is alright. I personally can't justify the extra cost of the new phones over what I already have. And that's taking in to account that I've lost the amoled screen for a cheap Chinese LCD. I've had it 3 years and 1 month.

I keep looking at, and looking at a refurbished Huwawei pro20 mate. Yet to take the plunge.

I've still got a oneplus 3T, but the camera is pretty terrible.

I keep mine for however long my contract is and then I replace it.

I have the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and it's been very good - but I did get a 30 month contract.

Prior to this February I had a Microsoft Lumia 950 Windows phone for nearly four years. Despite being a gadget man it just did what I want in making calls, using the internet and taking good pictures and didn't need the 'gimmicks' of Android or Apple (I did own Android tablets). When Windows Mobile wound down I went for an LG V30 due to the HiFi DAC chip but found this not to be all that good and combined with a lacklustre camera sold it off and bought a refurb Mate 20 Pro. The Huawei is a great phone just not keen on the curved edges and maybe a little to much thin to tall ratio. It annoys me now that I keep looking to see if there is the perfect phone out there or on it's way out. I'm sort of missing the days of being happy with a phone that just did everything well and now Android has me always looking to see what the latest new phone release is.
I think sometimes the more bells and whistles you have on a gadget you get more picky with what's good and bad about them, I know I could just get a basic phone but do need a very good camera on a phone which just are not found on the basic models. Hopefully the Mate 20 Pro will do me for a while.

Got a great deal from ebay Grade A return for 300. Looking forward to migrating over to the new phone on the weekend. Got a double up deal on Vodafone sim only, for 15 a month as well.

My battery life on my OnePlus3T is hanging on - but got a great 3 years out of it.

Had to replace the screen on my OP3 again. New one broke just over a week later too. These cheap Chinese LCDs are very brittle.

Anyone got the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G? I need a new phone and I'm thinking of buying it to future-proof myself.

I think 5G is utterly pointless. Genuinely can't see why I'd ever need 5G speeds on my phone.

I did look at 5G for my new phone recently but can wait as it's not going to be around my way for a while, although I'm not sure I have any need for it really. I'm actually thinking that if more people connect to 5G in saturated signal areas like London then it could possibly free up some of the existing 4G bandwidth? Hopefully 4G may actually get better?

I'll be connected to 4G in Surrey. It's just more for the fact that I'm probably gonna have the phone for at least five years, and during that time technology (5G) will massively advance.

You can buy a 4G contract with the Samsung 5G, but I'll find that a bit weird.

4G is more than fast enough, surely?

I often use the 4G on my phone to watch football, Netflix etc on my iPad, as my iPad is WiFi only. Never ever had a problem. I don't see the point of 5G in phones.

Mate, I'm just hoping to be able to control traffic lights (like you can with TVs on wifi):

5G will be helpful in built up areas like stadiums. You can have strong 4G signal but if thousands are using it, it will go to a crawl. 5G should alleviate that as well as give you stupidly fast speeds if you've got a good signal to a hot spot.

Not much use to be fair. But 5G is about do much more than phones.

It's the infrastructure for the internet of things. Literally everything connected. 100% coverage with zero lag or bandwidth issues. Self driving cars, fridges that order food you're running out of, no more need for wired internet etc and a million other tech things that could change the way we live. 5G is the first step.

That said, very real evidence that it could be harmful. They actually dont know and are saying it's safe based on measures and science out of date for today's technology.

It's not about streaming porn while you watch 4k movies on netflix on your phone, it's the ground work for the data sharing, connectivity revolution. Or it might kill everyone
