I have a P20 Pro and before that i had an S7.  I didnt find it difficult to change at all.  The Huawei EMUI operating system is maybe slightly different to Samsung so of course that would take a little getting used to.  Camera is great, battery life great etc.  Ive had it now for well over a year and i would have no complaints.  Look out for deals that sometimes accompany the Huawei phones.  I got a set of Bose QC2s with mine and the wife got a decent tablet with her P30.

Do you mean transferring files from PC to phone? That's something I've never had to do so i couldn't comment really.

I've a Samsung S10 work phone and a Huwawei P30 for my personal phone - both run android.

The Huwawei however is running so much faster and huge importance to me is battery use - I can have it on all day and have apps running all day where i would normally have them all closed on the samsung.

come 10pm in the evening i may stil have 45% battery. that could be after watching 30 mins news on the phone at lunch time as well.

Transfer can all be done via Google Accounts i believe - i have my whattsapp and photos all backed up on my gmail so it was a matter of signing in and recovering.

there are some unbelivable deals available at the minute - huge data allowances. These are for the north of the boarder unfortunately for anyone in the south

One thing to note about Huawei is that they are beginning to push their own OS.

If you are interested in a phone but aren't really sure if it's what you want or need, watch the reviews by MKBHD, Unbox Therapy and Dave Lee on YouTube.

My Samsung galaxy a5 2017 does not give me any notification of receiving text messages. Nothing appears on home screen or it’s screen icon and no sound is made. I tried finding a setting but doesn’t appear to be one. Had led to grief about me not replying to texts etc...

 any pointers to solve this?

Should be somewhere under settings "Apps & Notifications" Then select the app you want notifications for and enable them.

I accidentally disabled notifications for SMS a few weeks ago and just fixed it.

Anyone recommend a device or phone for downloading podcasts and listening to live radio (not via internet)?

Device/phone won't to be used as a phone.

I am new to Android phone and am using an Outlook/Hotmail email on it. Problem is, when I send an email the recipient sees it coming from a person called “Action Require” instead of “Orior”

Any ideas?

You mean when you are at home say and it doesnt connect to your wifi?  I used to have that phone and a vaguely remember that in certain parts of the house it would think the signal is too weak and try to revert to 4g.  I think at that point if you check wifi settings you can select to stay on the weak signal, as it would work fine.

While i'm here, anyone got one of the foldable phones yet?  I'm not due a change just yet but i do like the idea of the z fold.  I'd hope the next gen gets a bit thinner.

Yes I have exact same problem. Not connecting properly to wifi both at work and at home. Been like that as few days. Wifi works grand on other devices. I have Huawei P20 Pro also. Did you get it resolved?
