what did you upgrade from?

Looks a good bit of kit Troy. I've ordered the Mi 9T Pro off GearBest

Ah gotcha wasn't aware, my bad. That is a backward step from Google there - facial recog isn't even 100%.

Also post up how the Realme is, I'm considering it as well, great specs for the price.

Was going to go for the OnePlus 7t - but I'm not ready for a front camera like that

Realme X2 Pro looks amazing for the price. Think that will be my next phone.

I got the realme x2pro.
Love the hyper charging thing. fills the battery in 30mins, bloody mental and its battery is a big bugger too.
not impressed with the camera but its specs are beastly and for £500 i cant complain and i highly recommend it if you can get one.

Late response sorry, never saw.

My previous phone was the OnePlus 6; much better battery life on the 7 pro.

Camera is OKAY but it's not Samsung S10 or iPhone level but for the price the Pro 7 is a top phone.

I have an S10 through work and hate it. Moved from Huawei after a taxi loss, worst move ever.

What do you hate about it? I like my S10e, got it very cheap.

Unsure if people are aware of YMusic, basically an app that plays the MP3 only of videos on YouTube (and plays in the background)

This would have been really useful a few years ago.

Laughing out loud

It's always a good alternative if content is not available on Spotify etc. Like audiobooks or Taylor Swift's latest album.

Need to upgrade from my Moto G4 (I like medium spec android) and have been looking at a two year old Nokia 6.1 and a now 1 year old Samsung A20e.

Been using stock android phones for the past 6 years (since Nexus 5) and now need to renew.

Before going balls deep, does anyone know of any decent alternatives?

Would look at the 7.2 or Mi A3 for a solid Android One ting
