So I had to pick up a new phone today, my last one I lived dearly but I I got water in the charging port and it was causing me problems when we were on vacation. My main goal in a new phone was camera so I looked around I almost pulled the trigger on the S10+ but there was an issue with the camera that botherd me. I then looked at the Pixel 3XL, but at 64GB and not expandable I looked in a direction I had not given much thought about. Huawei, I loved the reviews and it's drawbacks were very minor but I loved what they said about the camera. So I got it, the P30 Pro. This phone has balls, it's powerfull, fast and that camera!! 5x optical, 50x digital (which is damed impressive) the low light function is amazing. I am in love with this phone! The gestures is a nice nod to my BB10 days! The build quality is also top notch! Just feel like a kid with a flashy new toy right now lol

I'm getting the S10 5G hopefully in a few days. I'm very excited to get it.

The 2x tele lens apparently had some quality issues with zooming. But I was impressed with the hardware it was close I had one in my hands. I do love Samsung hardware and they have come along way with the bloat ware. I watched a good video on unbox therapy. My wife is up for a new phone in a year and she used to be anti Samsung because of the UI, but she is now willing to look at it again because her mom got a new Samsung phone so it's good to see them improve.

I may try the Mate series after this if I find I need more. The battery is also killer in this phone and it's a welcome feature since my last phone had horrible battery life lol

Verizon is waiving it for now. My unlimited plan has 5G included. I have the beyond unlimited plan.

Frankly with the unlimited cloud storage on the pixel line unless you download gobs of stuff , it's great for my purposes.

They announced it a few weeks ago. For a unspecified amount of time, but who knows. Also I don't think NYC is on the list for Verizon rollouts
This year. I think a few parts have towers. But I'm 10 miles from Manhattan. I can't imagine them charging where it's not available. And like I said, I have the better plan that includes 5G. Regardless, this phone is better than the S10 plus. It's worth it to me.

We are not expected to have 5g rolling out until sometime in 2020, Wich probably means 2021 for my rural area. We had 4g/LTE sooooo fast, they are dragging there feet this time. That's why I was fine with this phone not having 5g, what's the point until I can use it. I know I will have a new phone in two years.

Let's also face reality. There's no real need for 99% of the population to have 5g, yet.

5g is going to be amazing to replace broadband when ready but for cellular use... Not so much.

Does the S10 have this crapty glitch that my husband just found on his Note 9? If he lifts his phone up to his ear, while in a text message OR puts it in his pocket/sets it down without closing the screen, it will just call that person. On screen you have to go through like 3 button confirmation to call someone, but this is all automatic. He had been wondering how he was calling people and now he knows.

I just got my wife an unlocked Google Pixel 3a from Best Buy for $399.99, with a $100 gift card included. She was upgrading from a Huawei Honor 8.

How's the 3a compared to the 3? I assume the 3 is just a little faster?

Never heard of this and have had multiple generations of S and Note between my wife and I (except the N9, had the 8). Turn on accidental touch protection.

I'll see if that's a thing he can do. I am an Apple person and he showed me/tested this a few times last night and each time it started calling me.

The 3 is faster, as a Snapdragon 845 processor (same with the XL) and the 3A has a Snapdragon 670 (same with the 3a XL). There are other differences like different build quality. Other notable differences is the 3a series have better battery life due to both the 3a and 3aXL having slightly bigger batteries and less demanding processors. The 3a has also a slightly bigger screen while the 3a XL is slightly smaller then there bigger bros.

If Google continues with the budget options for the 4, my wife may get one.. it's perfect for her the battery life alone is great seeing as she is always on it

I know this is not the right thread. But Anyone is interested in buying my Verizon IPhone XS Max 64GB let me know. I'm open to offers. It's only about 3-4 months old. I just paid off the entire thing and want to recoup some of that money.

New phone day!
