Samsung Galaxy S21: Lots of little downgrades, but this phone is more than the sum of its parts

Modern phones also seem seem to do more charge cycles then they once did. My P30 is coming up two years old and I really don't feel the need to have it swapped out yet.

O2 to fling out free Wi-Fi for all

I can see the point about public wifi

But why the hell do I want to wait for very average speeds on "super fast HSPA" when I'm at home in the hope that the network notice and may upgrade my mast.
