Re: Upgrading - few questions

Quite often, and I think this applies here, "less is more."
The S20 suffers with chronic battery life for a start.
Ultimately, the choice is yours, but I wouldn't consider the S20 unless it was significantly cheaper.

@paulbacon I do believe the SE is the stripped down version.

@MI5 looking at the cost a little more closely, the S21 6 month free airtime means you cannot use the NHS discount. So over the 3 years i would lose out from the "offer"

Ah yes, that old con....
Thought they'd be over that by now, but it appears not,
One variant of the S20 still on the list too!

Re: Upgrading - few questions

Yea its abit cheeky really, not obvious without looking into the small print.

 

Wonder if the exclusion also applies to o2 Friends & Family discount, as my friend works for o2 so thinks he can get me 50% off that way (although again, will it be excluded?)

The discount comes off the airtime part of the bill only, so you still pay full price for the phone though

Re: Upgrading - few questions

Bit of an update. My current phone has almost died (got aslong as i could out of it), and looking now the S21 is eligible for the NHS discount, unlike before

Looks like the best phone to go for then?
