What does the batter usage say? Could be a sneaky app in the background draining.

I've had an android phone and the 4g modem/GPS was on all the time even if I turned it off, drained fast. Could just need a software update/reset.

My last android years ago had something similar, fixed by clean install of android.

look at your app permissions, you might think somethings off but it may have permission to run in the background.

You can use an app called tasker too, which you can program a time or when you're in a particular location features such as WiFi, Bluetooth (if you're in the gym) should turn on or off

Checked the app usage against the battery drain and there was nothing hiding away that could drain 60% when idling. Called THREE and it's a fault so getting a replacement tomorrow. Kinda wish I stuck with iPhone now Laughing out loud

Cheers for help, fellas

It depends on the clarity and cut of the stones, the amount of gold, the style of the ring and whether it's (relatively) mass-produced or made by an independent jeweller. You can't really directly compare prices without factoring in those variables.

Without seeing it it sounds like it might be slightly on the expensive side. Comparing it to something broadly similar (from your description at least) in a High Street jeweller's I know, £1400 gets you 18k rose gold with a .31ct single diamond (i.e. more expensive than several smaller individual diamonds of the same total weight) but no sapphire.

Thanks! Was expecting it to be slightly pricy, but it's for an engagement ring so that doesn't really matter as long it's not a total ripoff. I'll go see if it's still available and check the clarity.
