I had a go of a demo unit in a shop yesterday and that finally sold me on upgrading from my Nexus 6P. Had been umming and ahhing before, but actually having a go of one made me want it too much.
Plus this way for barely more than the price of buying it outright I get the newest one every year. The only downside is I have to give back the old one to get the new upgrade after 12 months.

Moto Z with Speaker Mod available for £299.99 again this time at Carphone Warehouse...

https://www.carphonewarehouse.com/motor ... ealType=pm

Was going to hold off on upgrading from my (fixed) LG G4, but at that price I think I'm going to go with it. Anyone who's got one got anything bad to say about it?

I ordered one last time but my transaction was cancelled (cheers Natwest), and by the time I went to order again they'd sold out. I've kind of lost my enthusiasm for the phone now, gonna hold on for something else unless they knock another £50 off it.

Can't argue with the spec for the price though.

Funny because I'm with Natwest and they've done exactly the same to me.

Seems like its still available though so I'm going to try and order it again (or sort my original order out, don't really want two of them).

Well I'd be really interested in your impressions if you do get one sorted, it's a phone I've had my eye on since it launched. If the price dropped again I'd probably be tempted, I've no interest in the speaker add-on.

The S8+ is truly a thing of beauty to hold in my hands :wub:
Definitely needs a case though, it's the slippiest thing in existence without one.

Comparison shot next to my Nexus 6P. Keep in mind that the S8+ screen is a half inch bigger than the screen on the 6P,

I'm thinking i may go LG G6 as my next one, or an S8 depends how much i have when it is renew time i guess.

I'm 100% on these no edge curved corner screens they seem odd and I can't quite decide if i like it or not.

[quote="Return_of_the_STAR"]If I want to get kodi am I best to just buy a fire stick or should I get an android tv box?[/quote]

Hi. It depends what you're looking.
I would recommend a fire stick if you have a prime account, so you could have the best of the 2 worlds. To install it is pretty easy, here's the best installation guide that I found https://www.bestdroidplayer.co.uk/xbmc- ... k-fire-tv/

If you don't have a prime account, I would go for an Android TV Box really. You can get better hardware and thats important if you want to stream High quality streams and play games.
