Re: What have you just bought?

Samsung S20 FE 5G Navy SIM free as there is a cracking deal on this phone at the moment with Amazon reduced from £700 to about £500 and it comes with a Snapdragon CPU and still has the great camera, it's a huge upgrade from my S7.

Re: What have you just bought?

40th birthday presents for our son and daughter-in-law.

Expensive mornings shop on line, and could have done with them not having been born within days of each other, but they so deserve every penny I've spent.

I'm always quiet when I'm outside. It's good to be a considerate neighbour.

Update - easy to install and use (and link to Echo devices).

Terrible wifi connectivity.

Very happy with the ease of set up and usability - the set up process is simple & quick, and links easily to Echo devices.

My complaint is with the device wifi - I have 350Mb/s down & 35Mb/s up with Virgin Media, and get this speed consistently, and my house wifi is provided by 5 google mesh wifi hubs.

All my other devices get 250Mb+ (except Smart Bulbs and Smart Plugs, which get between 10 & 50Mb), but the Ring Stick Up Cam gets 1Mb - itís only 12 foot from a Google Mesh hub, with one brick wall in between, with a RSSI reading of 74-79, which leads to a lag of a couple of seconds from when someone gets in the camera range to when we are notified.

Even when it was set it up, only 2 feet from the google mesh hub, I was only getting a RSSI of 34 - Iíve checked itís on 2.4Ghz, so itís not that.

Initially happy, now quite disappointed...

Re: What have you just bought?

Just bought a new Shark vacuum. The Mrs wanted one as the Dyson we have is getting on a bit and with the new house soon she decided it was time.

After Googling you're not the only person not happy, consider sending it back for a refund.

And you can tell her you need a PS5 for the new house too as it's only fair.

A few bits for my iPad Pro, 2 cases a Pencil (not the Apple one) and a matte screen protector that feels like paper to write and draw on.
