I am new to the world of wireless charging. Can anyone recommend one with USB-C socket that will work with an S10? Other the somewhat more expensive Samsung ones I guess.



Most of the aftermarket chargers are slow chargers so you are actually better off with the Samsung one. The previous wireless charger duo is probably the one to get as you can charge the phone and watch or buds at the same time. Check tm.

My S10e is happily charging off one of these Mi Wireless Charger I bought for the now retired Mi Mix 2s.

Ah, just got an email regarding the TV saying they will contact me to arrange a suitable day and address for delivery. Hopefully I'm able to request a Saturday and have it delivered to my home address which will be a lot easier than work.

Must have sent them all out then. It also says "by now you will have received an email from us letting you know your phone is on its way" which I haven't.

How do you guys (that have used S10 for few days now) rate the battery? 

 

Someone that came out of Note 9 to S10 (for a smaller phone) is complaining a lot on the battery. Right down to 10 or lower by end of the day? as opposed to 30 or 40 on note 9 for similar usage.

I've only seen review on the S10+ battery which most seem to think is great, no one talking about the S10 that I've seen yet. I did notice someone mention that it took about a week for it to "settle in" with initially poor performance that got better eventually, and that has been my experience with most phones over the last few years.

 

Other half has the S10 but not started using it yet. Once she does I can feedback

My first day with a plus was a touch disappointing, but I did use alot and have faith that the optimisation will improve.

I found that to be the case. it easily runs to two work days if I turn it off overnight, which I nearly always do.

Thanks! I have bought one. It's actually for my wife's Note 9, so I can take her dual Samsung one to work. On my desk it will charge my S10 and earbuds.

After playing with the 10+, so far found the fingerprint reader to be awful. I have latest software update.

 

I'll try retraining it and adding secondary print.

 

Also, it seems I have to register for a Samsung account to remove or disable Bixby? A bit annoying.

According to my tracking number they attempted delivery at 7.13 this morning but no-one was available and they left a card (mail room at work opens at 8.30). Have checked with mail room and reception and there's no card so now trying to find out whether I can collect it from the depot or if they will deliver again. Was hoping to set it up tonight but probably not now!

On the plus side I got a call to arrange the TV delivery and organised it to come to my home address on Saturday so hopefully don't end up staying in all day for them to not turn up.

Hi all,

 

For those that pre-ordered S10+ in-store at Noel Leeming, has anyone received any notification to say the phone is ready to be picked up?

 

I ordered mine on the last day of the pre-order so I am probably further down the list, plus the notice on NL's website saying S10+ delays is 2-3 weeks.

Sorted with NZ Post. Turned out the all important floor number was left off the delivery address, so it unclear where to deliver it as there is more than one business in the building. Have had the full address corrected and should be redelivered tomorrow. Also ordered a case which should arrive tomorrow so it should all work out for the best in the end to get them both together.
