Same they also have an exchange program now too.
They give "up to £205". Not sure that is overly generous as that is probably for the 5T.

Yes?

My original Pixel XL's battery has gone a bit pants lately so decided it was time to consider a new phone. Got myself an Honor 10 after reading the reviews.

For 400 quid I'm amazed by how good it is. Lovely screen, everything's nice and fast, 128gb storage and the back looks amazing. Cameras seem good too and it came bundled with a free case and pre-fitted screen protector. Got a free pair of Bluetooth headphones too coming at some point.

To make it better after looking online to trade in my Pixel XL it looked like I'd be getting between £180 and £230 for it.. I decided to try GAME as they only listed the 32gb model online (mine was 128gb) - wasn't expecting much as they only listed about £120 for the 32gb model but they offered be £302 for mine. Was gobsmacked.. so paid for most of the Honor 10.

But yeah anyone thinking about a OnePlus6 the Honor 10 is well worth considering, slightly cheaper and very similar spec.

Got my new Nokia 8 last week. At £290 it seems a massive bargain. But I charged it to full the other day and left it untouched overnight (not plugged in), when I looked at it in the morning it was on 35%. It's been fine since but what would you guys recommend, send it back for an exchange? I'm happy with the quality of the phone.

I'm still rocking the Nexus 6P. Still takes amazing pictures the battery is absolutely shite now. Tbf, it was never amazing for battery life.

Felt no need to upgrade and I'm still salty about no headphone jack on Pixel 2 XL but will almost certainly upgrade to Pixel 3 XL in 5/6 months time.

You'll love it. Did you get the blue one? The back looks amazing in the flesh.

Few bits needed tweaking as by default their interface is a bit too iPhone like for me but it's all configurable to get it how you want. I've removed the bottom menu entirely and use gestures on the fingerprint scanner instead allowing everything to be pretty much full screen.

Thought I'd miss my Pixel as I did love it but so far I think I prefer this especially for the price. Does everything I need and more.

Though already had someone ask me why I went for an iPhone X, from the front it looks very similar at first glance :slol:

Did you check the battery stats to see what used up the power?

Yes?

I annoyingly forgot to check that before i plugged it back in. I did notice that the battery power graph though showed a straight line reducing from 100% to 35%. So very odd. I've just however got two days of use out of it and it's sitting on 33% after almost 48 hours since it's last charge, so i'm happy with the phone overall but my concern is though that there is a possibly glitch that will keep happening every now and again.

Yes gone for the blue. Thought it looked really stylish in the reviews.

How is the camera? That's the main reason I'm buying it as it looks like the best you can get for the money.

I'm moving from an original Wileyfox Swift so I think anything is going to be an improvement tbf.

I doubt it is a hardware glitch, probably something software based. You have a longish warranty so see if it happens again and then check what has been using it.

Yes?

It just seems odd that it was a sustained drain (straight line on the graph) over 8 hours, i've never seen that if it's been an app or piece of software.

Seems really good so far, took a few shots of the garden and the missus and they've come out really good. The ai mode seems good at optimising a shot and it's got tons of modes on top of the normal photo and video options. Deffo can't complain. Only thing haven't tried is low light shots.
