    Yep and 5G is big, especially with a case, but when you need the screen real estate, it's there and looks fantastic.
    I originally bought the Tab s 8.4inch and the Samsung S5 mini to ensure I could pocket and lock my phone, but small phones suck for everything except calling and answering calls and have all features cut down.
    5.2inch HTC 10 was also too small for media and internet, especially compared to 5G.

    FFS, NAB app is out of control, for 1 min of activity it used 28% of my battery, and the app was updated 2 days ago.

    Fuck this I'll set up a com bank account unless this shit is resolved quickly.

    I can't uninstall the turd as it's needed atm.

    28% in 1 minute, impressive, sounds like they are running a cpu overclocker and bitcoin miner on your phone, i wouldnt put it past them

    I don't think it can be put to sleep, and whilst it runs in the background it chugs the juice.

    Anyway I uninstalled it.

    The NAB app is terrible... for the 6months I used a Note9 it never worked, apparently some bug which was a known issue which they never fixed..
    Been using the S10-5G (512GB) for the past 4 months, app works fine.
    its a stunning beast! love the screen realestate, glad I didn't wait for the disappointing Note10...
    If it wasn't for Samsungs amazing screen body ratio! I find it hard to move away now...

    Anyone else having this issue?
    unless its my badluck.. I'm on Telstra BYO $89 plan & finding general use intermittently unreliable compared when I used note9 or xiaomi mobiles... even though I have 2 bars on VOLT or 4G its terribly slow or laggy when browsing...
    Can't help think that theirs an issue with 5G & Telstra compatibility. If I tether & download I get 1-2mbps

    My pixel 2 plan is up so it's new phone time! (First time I've had a phone last 2 years in at least 10 years.... )

    I've never really loved the pixel (s7, s5, S3 & Nokia 925 were my last phones) and I have an s9 for work so am leaning towards the s10.

    I see the free buds promo is on again! Is everyone still loving their s10s or do you all recommend that I shop around?

    Looking at getting the S10e soon and wondering if anybody who has 1 can comment on their experiences with it.

    My reasonings are that i believe it has a flat screen with little/no "edge" , and it is a cut down version of the S10 but shares the same processor and important bits to keep the price down?

    I know there are reviews but nothing beats a proper unbiased non backend deal review from people who have 1.

    Starting to see some reasonable deals on the S10 coming through now.

    Yep, because you need 5G.

    Given how good the s10s specs were, it made sense to pick the 5g model as I could've kept it for 2.5-3yrs.

    However, the s11 is going to be the one to hold on to for 3 yrs.
    108mp ftw.

    It will be a good number of years yet before 4G becomes irrelevant.

    So i am really happy with the S10e, really quick and responsive on everything i do, only issue people may find is using the fingerprint scanner on the power button when you have a case on it, i am used to using a code so its no issue for me.
    LOVE the flat screen and the ease of putting on the toughened screen protector with it meeting the edge of the Quadlock case i bought for it perfectly.
    Pretty much the identical size to the S9 which i find a really good mix between compact and the excessively large screens on some phones these days.
    So easy to just copy everything from the S9 over and be ready to go in around 30mins.

    The sammy transfer agent is second to none, so incredibly easy and effective to use.
