Arrived at 10 this morning, via Eindhoven, Brussels, East Midlands and Dublin.

Haven't opened it yet. Too busy.

How did you do this?

I'm having trouble getting my LG V20 and 4a to talk the other, whether it's by USB and the 'Smart Switch' app. LG is on Android 8, though, and maybe that's the snag. It just says 'can't connect', both provide a four digit PIN, but nada. Probably because they think I'm on a Galaxy device and I'm getting stuck on what mode it's in, so it keeps slipping back to thinking I'm using one to charge the other...

Got sorted with the transfer of stuff.

First impressions. The box from DHL was very light. Don't know why, but I was expecting it to weigh a little more. I was impressed by how quickly the 4a seem to restart itself after installing Android 11 and on the whole, it seems quite nippy.

LGV20 feels ancient already.

One odd thing, the email from Google Store hasn't updated and still say my order has dispatched (12th), with a delivery date of 13th/14th. The tracking link for DHL is correct, of course.

I've ordered three things from Google recently, two have been delivered but all still show a delivery date in the future...

Because of that, I'm hoping they dispatch my phone earlier than they have listed.

I've a galaxy s10 since April last year and its been bombarded with updates the last 6 months and tge battery life which was never brilliant but was acceptable after some tweaks is now getting noticeably worse. It has been a very disappointing phone compared to my previous s7 imo.
I don't fancy dropping anther 900 euros on a phone so I'm considering the 4a. I've never had a pixel before and I'm just wondering what it's like battery and screen wise. Will the screen be noticeably inferior to my s10. Is there any need for the 5g model this time around.

The Pixel 4a 5g looks great except for the screen size.

The Pixel 5 has a better screen size for me but no headphone socket.

Pixel 4a has no 5g but everything else and I'm not sure I need 5g.

Nobody "needs" 5G really, sure we haven't even got nationwide stable 4G yet - the 4A is the perfect phone.

Screen protector arrived (Mascheri). The size of boxes Amazon use it just ridiculous for one feckin' small item.
