Been playing with this a couple of weeks now and it still bugs me. Why do I have to go to box bottom right then hit the X why canít the simply allow you to hit the X in the first place and shut the window? How does android do it? And my god Siri is a pile of crap. Not as bad as bixby but still shocking. Google and Alexa are streaks ahead

I agree. Took my 5 year old iphone 5S to a place called "ismash" in Brighton (I know, I know) and they replaced the battery for £40. Takes half an hour.
They made a half-hearted attempt to upsale a couple of things but a polite no thanks was enough.

First charge gave me 3 days of battery - undreamed of luxury.

I arranged for my 6s to have the battery replaced, they did the diagnostic and I sent it off to the repair centre after paying the fee. Checked the status today and they have flagged that there is a fault with the speaker (that is literally all the info supplied) and the repair cost was now £260.

They refused to replace the battery unless I paid the full amount to fix something that I neither noticed nor wanted fixed, saying that they have to fix every fault they find if a phone goes in regardless of what the customer wanted doing to it. Obviously I told them to send it back and Iíll get the battery replaced by a third party shop.

Sadly true. I have 18 months left on my contract and my son keeps showing me all this cool stuff on his new Galaxy. As soon as its renewal time I'm off.
Funny enough my final straw was nothing to do with phones but the Apple printing service. Each year for the last 10 I made an Iphoto calendar and made 4 copies to send to family. I also made another 6 or so with Vista or Bonus print. The Apple ones where better quality and cost £25 a pop vrs £5. But I was happy to pay it for the Grandparents. This year they have sold the printing to some other company £50 a calendar they wanted **** off you greedy bastards. Q some slightly disappointed Grandparents, but at least they got a printed mug as well to make up for it for less than the orginal £25

I've just bought myself a new Android tablet and it's the first Android phone/tab I've ever used as always had iphones/ipads. I'm just finding more and more (especially as I'm into streaming), the restrictions with Apple are becoming more and more annoying. I'm quite pleased with the new Android tab and can see me putting the iPad way to gather dust.

Interesting as I posted about tablets on another thread and it was a distinct Ipad all the way know one else is close. I had a look at the Surface 10" on Tuesday and it looked great. Same price but with a keyboard etc. I use my Ipad for the odd app but mainly for media. I do add films but now Iplayer Now TV etch all support downloads havent added a film for ages. What I am getting fed up with is each IOS upgrade that I get suckered into performing, for whatever reason, slows the thing down more and more

Yep, thatís the thing. My iPad is quite a few years old now and is slow sluggish which it never was before. Iíve done a full factory reset and still the same. It was great when i first got it. I went into the Apple store to look at the big ones recently but youíre looking at a £1000 to get a decent one. I donít know if the Android tab will also go slow In the future (like they make Apple products) but itís great for what I paid for it (refurb from Argos). More so the fact I can do and download/sideload what I want.

I got one of these as the projector intrigued me and it's decent. Time will tell of course as it might turn to a sack of shit after a while but as an intro into Android it does what i want. I only paid £275 for the refurb. It's a shame it doesn't run on a newer Android version though although I'm hopeful with updates they might bring one out. It's a gazzilion times better than my old iPad is though. iOS is slick, but immensely restrictive.
