Received a Tax Invoice early this morning from Vodafone.  Has been a week since I placed the order.  Hoping this means they will start shipping soon.

That would be a shame. LG have a "Bixby button"on the G7 but it does GA.

I don't find these assistants much use to be honest, except for hands free dialing.

I received the offer that included a TV while I was on vacation abroad. Since I needed a new phone anyway I placed the order straightaway. I received a confirmation soon after but, not long after that, a notice that said my order was cancelled! As it turned out VF rejects orders from abroad. I had to make it once I arrived back in NZ.

 

Got my tax invoice yesterday. Can't say I've been this excited about a new phone for a very long time! I already ordered a Spigen case from Ascent too.

I ordered one but no tax invoice as yet. Never saw the TV offer as I don't use Facebook. Got free Buds plus the $200 discount, plus they wiped $230 of early resign fees and put me on an open term plan.

Trying to find a decent wallet type case that will protect the screen.

I didn't realise that offer was on FB. I got an email with that offer.

Has anyone ordered the Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector for their new baby? I have just watched a couple of reviews and it appears to be the only one that guarantees to work with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor (at the moment).
Any experience of it with previous galaxy models?

$50 is quite a lot but it seems like a pretty comprehensive protection system.

Noel Leeming here in Hamilton (and pretty much everywhere else) has the Otterbox Strada in stock. They aren’t on display just yet, but they’ll pull them from the back for you if you ask.

I’m just going to use the pre-installed screen protector until they’ve worked out the kinks with the glass ones. From what I’ve seen in store, the built in one looks decent.

Thought I'd check out my options for the Note 9, but it's now at Galaxy S10 prices at PB?

 

It was running around $1,300 at Xmas and now it's over $1500 even with their current sale.

The Note was going to be my back-up plan if the S10 prices didn't drop reasonably quickly (i.e. handset only prices by Easter etc). I'll stick to that and wait for the S10+, hopefully a notification light solution is forthcoming by then.

I here ya buddy. I'm pretty excited too! Although I'm probably just as excited about the freebie stuff as I am the phone itself.

Galaxy s10+ 1tb ceramic white was at the PB expo $1 charity auction, wonder how much that went for?

I won the logitexh gaming peripherals, wasn't amazing deal but for a good cause.

And I won the Mi Electric scooter for $580. For a good cause again. Not sure what to do with it now :) 

 

I wanted to check how much the S10 went for but could not wait for long and left.
