Is it bigger than the g6 by much, how's the fingerprint and the camera. To get most of camera you need to change some settings I think or get gCam. There is a thread on xda about how to get the camera sort of working

Dunno GSMarena were praising some of the models.

They've got good points as phones, sure but gsmarena have taken to describing any phone that gets through a single day as having "great/excellent" battery life even when the numbers in the review aren't backing that up. The m20 gets worse battery life than phones from 2 years ago despite a 5, 000 mah battery and that's very poor.

It's a bit bigger alright but not ridiculously big (i'm not a fan of larger phones but i so far find this ok!)

Haven't really looked into the camera settings tbh, i need to check what's best online as i wouldn't be too good at just knowing that kind of stuff!!

Good job i didn't go with the Huawei in the end!!!!

Wondering about this too, as the Samsung Watch works out slightly cheaper on Amazon UK than from Samsung's site at the moment....anyone tried it?

Also interested in this. Has anyone who bought from Amazon.co.uk been able to get the cashback consdering it's not an option for the Irish site?

If you select UK instead of Ireland it should be possible, although you might need a Revolut card or similar. With the weak sterling and cashback, the black version of the 42mm watch is coming in at around €242 vs. €264 from Samsung themselves, who seem to be the cheapest Irish retailer

ebay is 15% off tech today on the .co.uk site. Might be worth a punt buying from the Argos store then attempting the cashback also? You'd almost get 90 off overall for the A50, for example.

Edit: Nope, T&C's specifically call out ebay as an exclusion

I've applied for the cashback on the Samsung watch I bought via Amazon UK, I'll update on the results. Has anyone claimed successfully yet?

Bought some ear buds on Thursday, uploaded the paperwork that night.

Got an email this morning to reattach one of the documents, did that and at about 4pm got an email to say it's been accepted subject to final checks and money will be in my account shortly.
