  1. Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge or 8 Plus

    It arrived by courier yesterday and I didn't open it until last night as I was waiting on my existing number to transfer aswell as the delivery of the OtterBox case which I highly recommend its a bit expensive compared to ebay sales but it fits like a glove and isint loose or bulkey. The purchase of the phone came with a free Soundwave Bluetooth speaker which I don't personally have a use for but the wife won't let me stick it up on ebay 🤣 The phone comes with a little usb adaptor, if your existing phone was an android then you can plug it directly in to the Samsung S8 and transfer every contact, text message, photo, video, call log and app across from your old device to the S8 by just plugging them together I think that feature really saves alot of time, my old phone was a "Samsung Galaxy Core Prime" The curved or wrap around screen also feels great in your hand. I've just setup the usual apps and my email on it at the moment I've not had time to add any new apps to it yet or explore the features although I did find one feature which stops the screen from turning off while your looking at it 😅 somehow it sences your eye and keeps the screen illuminated. This is my first message on it too

    BoSelecta was a show on channel 4 back in the late 90's when Keith lemon first started on television; he used to impersonate Craig David prentending he had a pet falcon called Kes aswell as Michael Jackson and Melanie B from the spice girls.

    That Bixby feature sounds excellent, I'm always getting in to the car then turning on Bluetooth and spotify then turning bluetooth volume up full and acknowledging the volume warning; prior to driving anywhere 😅 would be ideal if it did all that itself.

    my wifes old Galaxy J3 (2016 model) used to do that aswell. Is that Kes in the photo from BoSelecta? 😅

    Thank mate, My Wife had an iPhone 5s few years ago, she had difficulty when changing back to Android a few years later regarding images of our children from birth to few years older which the iPhone had automatically stored on "the cloud" almost impossible to transfer. Much easier with Android just use a micro SD

    It seems a bit big for me and there €200 more expensive on billpay than the S8
  10. Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge or 8 Plus

    Thanks for all the response so far guy's I really appreciate it, I have a bit of info now to add myself; I went to the local CarPhoneWarehouse to have a look at the disply models for both the S8 and S8+ Before holding the actual models in my hand I was planning to purchase the S8+ but after seeing them in reality I'll be going for the S8 as the plus model is almost as tall as a pint glass 😯 and would be even bigger with a case to protect it, I'm forever in blue jeans kinda fella and would struggle to fit it in my pocket although it may impress some of the mothers during the school run 😁 it's only my phone. I've also looked at reviews and discovered the only differences between the S8 and the S8+ is that the S8+ has a bigger screen and a 500mah more battery, everything else is identical on both models and experts suggest the bigger screen will use that extra bit battery so essentially there both the same just 1" inch bigger. I wasn't aware that there waterproof I won't be intentionally testing that feature 😅 I would like to have a phone with a good camera as we have three kids growing up fast and I've just put an assortment of picture frames around the house which need to be filled, Ideal to have a good quality camera always at the ready. I wasn't aware the edge of the screen had a tab feature I always thought it was just more screen. I've been looking at those OtterBox cases and they look fantastic but the price is a bit high. Yet I think I'll go for one of them as our son likes to watch YouTube "put diggie's on your phone there dad" JCB's and tractors 😅 Last Thursday I made my first attempt to purchase the S8, I'm currently with VirginMedia for TV and Internet and it made sence to add the phone to the same contract, The first reason they wouldn't let me purchase was because this month's bill was outstanding although it's setup for direct debit😞 they can take it themselves WTF. So I manually paid the bill, then they say it takes up to 48hrs for payment to display on the account. Friday they took payment for the bill via direct debit 😂 so there paid twice now It was Saturday when payment finally appeared on the account, I then attempted to purchase the S8 for €150 upfront and they then said I need to email them photo ID and proof of address, Done that and Saturday night they came back to say they want €500 upfront for the phone but the monthly payment would be less. The cowboys already charged me twice for November and kept me waiting two days, now they want four times more for the phone, So I scrapped that purchase plan and feeling quite deflated I had a few drinks Saturday night as ive not bought myself anything all year been working 6 days per week since Christmas putting all funds in to living and improving the house. I then logged on to one of there competitors websites and found they had a Black Friday weekend Sale 🙌 Between the alcohol and the excitement I acidently signed up for the S7 for €1 😣 I ment to get the S8 😢 so i logged on again and signed up for the S8 at an initil cost of €120🙌 I've gotta call them today and cancel the S7 under the Terms & Conditions there's a 14 day cooling off period where you can cancel the contract so it should be fine 😥 They didn't give me any hassle like VirginMedia accepted I.D and payment straight away no issues atall. I now plan to purchase an OtterBox case after the phone arrives. I'll update soon
  11. TomTom or Garmin?

    Ow rite, I thought it was to do with your job 😅
  12. TomTom or Garmin?

    @LIAMSAFC sorry to take away from the topic but can I ask what the SAFC stands for ? Do you work for Sigma-Aldrich Fine Chemicals ? I do 😅 well it's Merck now
  13. TomTom or Garmin?

    I've always chosen TomTom they have the best maps and by that I mean the most accurate, you can also chose to accept other users updates which will include sitings of speed vans at certain locations aswell as places of interest and temperary changes to road speeds for example where the section of road is under maintenance.
  14. Hi all, I'm looking at upgrading my phone as the existing one is starting to fail on me; the back button "↩" no longer works and the whole thing freezes up at times, but it's six years old now and has served me extremely well. I'm now looking at an upgrade and plan on purchasing either the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or S8 Plus and I'm interested to know is there much difference between them and does anybody have either model; what are they like to use; advantages aswell as disadvantages. I'll take all opinions on board aswell as post my own review when I finally decide on which model aswell. I've recently bought my wife a Galaxy J5 and it' pretty good but I don't want to get identical as there likely to get mixed up. Thanks very much 👍
