Missus did a standard software upgrade on her P30 Pro overnight and it wouldn't let her unlock the phone with her usual pin this morning. Tried a load of different things and ended up accidentally factory resetting the phone. She's got loads of stuff on there not backed up. Is there any way of restoring the data?

Thats really odd, Ive had a p20 pro and 2 x p30 pros and never even heard of an issue like that.

I doubt it will be easy to recover anything but your best bet it speaking with a local data recovery phone/laptop guy and taking it to them for a look.

I'm having problems uploading images to Imagur. I've come to the conclusion it's because they are too big, looking into it they are 108mp I had a similar problem trying to send photos over email, I could only send one at a time.
How do I change the resolution on a s20 ultra, and what should I change it to to work on imagur etc

ExpressVPN is the best by far imho. I’ve tried most of them. Get 30 days free if you want https://www.expressrefer.com/refer-a-friend/30-days-free?utm_campaign=refer_friends&utm;_medium=copy_link&utm;_content=settings_get30daysfree&utm;_source=ios_app&referrer;_id=8906775

Aren't all (paid) VPNs the same? I use Nord, seems to be fine. They normally have discounts running

Depends what you want from it - I've got a basic Lifetime sub from VPNSecure, and can use on PCs and Mobiles.

Some VPNs allow you to have access to a vast array of countries, and also works with platforms such as Netflix so you can get other country's available content
