    The Mobile Phone thread.

    Been a bit quiet on the phone front, has technology plateaued?

    Will Samsung bounce back from their issues?

    REVIEW:
    Between Samsung’s exploding battery drama and Apple’s latest release being plagued by delays, the smartphone market was open for a new king.
    Enter Sony’s Xperia XZ.

    Well samsung has blown its foot off, it will recover some but not the heights they once had I expect.
    Sony, what a huge market share they once had back in the day. Quality plus and you paid for it.
    Still think their tv's are tops. Unless things have changed.
    They just didn't step up in time quick enough and for now their mobile won't make much impact unless they do a deal with a telco to give them away as per voda days or similar.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    I'm having I look at huawei mobiles, the GR5 interest me, they have good design, metal casing, expandable memory, good camera 13megapix, good operating software n for around $330 @ allphones, it's good value, it can compete against other top brands. I currently use a Sony xperia but its starting to show it's age n it's not 4g compatible

    Of course they will. The bulk of the market are millennials who have the attention span of drunk goldfish.

    Samsung will bring out a new model with some ultra narcissistic capability and all will be forgotten #YOLO #Lookatme #hashtag #selfie

    Need some feedback guys if anyone knows.
    Obviously most mobiles have Maps, my iphone does and works great when doing interstate car hire travels etcetc......
    I'm going OS for 5 1/2wks from next week and apart from setting up Data Packs for my account my concerns are I'm having to drive around Europe quite a bit.
    Car hire they have a daily charge for Sat Nav that I could buy one cheaper here and take it with me.
    MY Q is taking my own Nav (well I need to buy one this week) with me does it program up just as your mobile that your in X country and your no worries typing in your destinations ?

    nope
    A sat nav you buy here only has Australian Maps
    you would have to buy a European map package, do it thru their web site, about $89 for Western Europe and same for Eastern Europe
