    Yup... It's loud. (random internet pic because I can't do attachments)

    Got the Bass amp to match several years ago at a thrift store... Paid a lot less for that bass amp than what these things go for now.


    Also this...

    Which is actually the one I bought, broken knobs and all...

    Samsung Galaxy S10 in Prism White, and yes I'm keeping my Huawei P20, I'm gonna try this two phones thing and see if I can alleviate my battery anxiety:

    (edit: I've had three phones at once before, one for music and social media, one for business and the last one for calls and texts personally but that was way back in the 2000s. I should also mention I'm not going to give the second phone's number to anyone but a select few, aliens and maybe @Judas.)

    knowing what I know I just wouldn’t ever drop premium phone money for the likes of an S10, but it is a lovely looking thing
    I certainly wouldn’t complain if someone gave me one, but it’s silly money for a phone

    I very much like the look of the S10... I still have around £300 pound on my current contract which is one of the reasons im not going to the Upgrade..

    The Prices for the Contract (Even if I paid off the existing contract) here in the UK is in the region of £40 (Give or take some) upwards.

    The main reason I upgraded is because I have already paid off my Huawei P20, and the bill is virtually non-existent now that I have, so it made sense since they had a special on for the S10 as well. I've decided to dual wield though, using my P20 for all communications and my S10 for everything else.

    it’s a value for money thing
    don’t understand why anyone spends £1000 on a Sammy when (for example) if you want an expensive flagship a Oneplus does the same thing for hundreds less

    let alone that most folk don’t ever use them to anything close to their potential, and could absolutely get away with something much, much cheaper on a day- to - day basis

    I get where you're coming from, but the main reason I got it was for the camera, and the bragging rights. Pretty much.

    Got a Google Mini speaker for like 34 (including taxes) bucks, a saving of like 46 bucks and this thing is awesome, it is loud as hell lol and has decent bass for its size. I love it, something for when I don't feel like wearing headphones or my PC is off and I'm not using it's speakers, especially because I can use it to listen to music before I go to bed at night and in the morning when I wake up and don't feel like getting out of bed just yet.

    Edit: I'll post the pic later when I am on my PC, laying down now.

    Nice, yeah it's a neat little device. I'm so lazy about even checking the time now, just ask my speaker lol. (if my phone isn't on me or my PC is off)
