lucky I'm very happy with my Samsung 6.

Have they sorted out the problems with the 7? When I travelled longhaul recently they were asking re and confiscating shockSamsung 7s shock and when we were all on the plane, the pilot announced again that if anyone had a Samsung 7 that had been missed, to please tell a member of staff.

Oh - that's strange - I wonder why. We do not travel by air, but it would be interesting to know what that was about.

Luckygirl there were problems with the Samsung7 batteries catching fire or exploding I don't know if they sorted it out yet.

We have a small apple ipad, which we are very happy with, it's very easy and works well. We particularly like the FaceTime. I think the Samsung is a bit cheaper but if your family also have the iPad you can use FaceTime and it's so quick and easy. Not very good with technology just want to say we had another one previously but find this is much better.

The trouble was with the Samsung Note 7 not the S7. I would love one but they are very expensive and I don't think I'll use all the bells and whistles.

I have bought this one as OH is having a Samsung VR headset for Christmas and you need a pretty meaty smart phone to work this.

I managed to get what I thought was a pretty good deal with no upfront payment, 1 GB data and unlimited texts and calls. After the contract ends in 2 years it will have worked out that after taking off the cost of the phone we will have paid about £10 a month for it.
