Default Gadgets and Gizmo`s

Well the Samsung S8 has been released, how many people out there actually pre-order or must have the latest phone, laptop or gizmo as soon as they come out...as you see queues for apple phones etc.

Personally I prefer Samsung phones over Apple but I would not have to have the latest immediately and am still more than happy with my Samsung S6 Edge +.

My HTC is now 3 or 4 years old, it's a bit of a "Trigger's broom" having gone through numerous new screens cos I have a habit of dropping them.

I wanted an S7 Active for precisely that reason (it's pretty much unbreakable), I wonder whether an S8 Active will be reduced.

Saw this, and thought it would be a major improvement on my Nissan Sunny rental.

Not for the want of trying. Was worried about the hips at one point though.

I was thinking along the lines of some oik fiddling with one during a meeting, and then this happening (sort of):

I pre-ordered the S8 as I gave the S7 Edge to my son back home. Had it about a week now, nice device, not much difference with the S7E to be honest. Slowly moving away from Apple, been disappointed with them recently.

Also got one of those fidget spinner things, but still in the box and haven't fidgeting once...

The S8 seems so delicate - is yours cocooned in a case?

It is in a case ( Tech21 case ) even though it spoils the look and feel of the phone - as any case generally does with any phone. Might as well try and look after it for the first few months of its life...

Had my 5S just over 3 years now and its still working fine, on the original screen, second battery although it's nearly full to the brim memory wise........ which may explain it's sometimes slow / inexpiable traits.....

I might upgrade to a 6S soonish. Can't be arsed getting the latest gadget these days.

Haven't put my S8 in a case yet as I am enjoying the look too much. However, with my Gerald eyeing it up, I am going to have to get one.

The etihad reduction code is a farce though. Not valid june-sept according to etihad.
