Samsung S20 FE

My work phone is an S10 and its time for an upgrade
I was going to go S20 because I'm used to Samsung and like them
However I see there's a new version out called S20 FE and its a couple of hundred euro cheaper
Apart from the usual apps my phone is mainly used for phone calls and photo's
Has anyone else ordered one of these yet

I just ordered one of these today. Three.ie have it now available on their website and I was eligible for an upgrade so went for it. I had to order over the phone to get the 5G version as they were only advertising the 4G one on the site (i think the 4G version doesn't use the snapdragon chipset).
I was actually waiting to get the Google Pixel 5 but they've been out of stock all week and my patience got the better of me. On the plus side though the S20 FE does look seem to pack some nice features so don't feel to bad.

Hopefully will have the phone by Friday.

Hi Elwood.
Just curious, does the S20 FE 4G have a dual sim slot? Or is it single sim only?

Still haven't gotten the phone and seems I won't get it now until November. But from what I've read it's a dual sim but only if you don't want to use a memory card as it will take up the same slot. Not sure how that's going to work.

Last mail received from Three. Get the feeling they sold me the phone when they shouldn't of as they don't have it in stock.

Its dual sim so it would have to be surely
Try the Samsung website too as they are doing a decent trade in offer

This reviewer loves it

Finally got the phone yesterday. Can confirm it's definitely a dual sim.

Yeah I've been having some trouble. The adaptor from my last Huawei phone won't work with it. Apparently the USB C adaptor standards are different across manufacturers so that's why some of them won't work.

I do have this USB C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter that allows me to charge my phone and listen to my earphones at the same time.
But even with that I've found some issues. I can charge or listen to the earphones but not at the same time.
The workaround I've found is that I need to plug out the earphones from the adaptor, plug in the adaptor into the phone, go to the USB settings, plug the earphones back in and switch the "USB Controlled by" option from This Device to Phone and then back to This Device to get it to work. My battery does seem to drain though using this adaptor even though I have the charge device option set to no. Didn't have that issue with my last phone.

Anyone know how to get notifications to show on lock screen ?
I get a message from whatsapp from teams, the phone just beeps and vibrates but lock screen shows nothing, I need to unlock and swipe to the apps to see .... very annoying..

Flog it on Adverts.ie as the bloody prices haven’t dropped a cent in yonks for s20 plus or note 10 plus, looking at both for weeks on it and expected some reduction for Black Friday etc; nada
