Touch sounds including key press sounds should be named from the planet. Nobody else want to know you are doing stuff on your phone. Silence is golden. The worse offender was Samsung's nature ui that was shipped with the s3 and note 2 era phones. Bleeps and bloops all over the place.

Night mode always existed but was only enabled by the phone, not by you. It is now an option. Not a very good one though...! At least compared to some others.

Lambchop: God what have they done to the button press sound, it's gone from a classy click to almost an S3 like bloop

 

 

 

I always disable it anyway. I was irritated that it was re-enabled by the update though.

Spark is offering a 49inch TV with a Samsung S10 put on interest free payments - any word on the model of television?

Vodafone have a very nice deal on the Galaxy s10 presently. I would like to purchase outright the phone through Vodafone but use on the Spark network. Will there be any problems with this? Any drawbacks? Any negatives? Or just as simple as putting my current Spark sim into the phone?

 

Thanks

@johnno17 in theory no issue but it can cause a few issues and you can miss out on network features

Thanks Linux,

 

So to clarify, Updates such as Android Q rollout will not be delayed? So being as I will be on a Vodafone purchased phone but whose carrier is Spark will I get updates when rolled out at the same time as Spark or Vodafone?Also you mentioned missing out on network features - what did you mean by that?

 

Thanks again

Android updates are not related to the carriers SIM card in the handset but the carrier the phone was sold from

Edit: features like Wi-Fi calling that 2degrees support

What's the best deal on an S10+ at the moment? Outright purchase.
