If that is Paul McCartney then it is a damn disgrace but will still keep my Beatles LP's.

He comes from Liverpool which has a long tradition of two sides - Prot and RC Irish tradition. The former Prime Minister of the Irish Republic John Brutin has stated on television that the Easter Rebellion was not necessary at all as the UK government had stated officially in 1914 that a government would be given to Dublin but the First World War interrupted that delaying things. The 6 northern counties did not want a break and rightly got what they wanted as Dublin got their corner.  Although the south of Ireland's new flag showed the 2 traditional colours in Ireland as soon as 1922 came what unfortunately occurred was a mass persecution of people and the non-RC population collapsed to only 2% from what had been near 30. Sad and made the remaining counties determined to stay British :)  Nowadays the old attitude has mainly gone apart from that conjured up by those neo-Marxists in the Sinn Fein. They will never run a government in the south as the population is more modern, reasonable and sensible. Good to see that the south has made progress and there was a good reason for that I would say and they and Britain are more friendly as well.  In fact the republic even dropped their claim on Ulster from their constitution and regard them for that and much else but if the North wants to remain in Britain then the SF lot can get, well, ehrm, stuffed!  :knight:

I didn't see any kneeling in front of the white coat man. If I met your boss I would be polite and shake hands and a smile then give him a framed picture of "King Billy."  :D

Economics are not a science and even less commerce, business or administration.
And ontology belongs to the realm of pure philosophy - the knowledge of the Being, linguistics being a side a part sub-discipline.

What a confusion goes on those minds, the "virtues" of modern education for the youngsters.
A word for Manchester, terrorism will never win.
At such moments there's no divergence between us.

It's the way I drew maps when I was four.
If at four you were drawing maps instead an house wiht a sun above and a tree at the side, you're a very strange creature... :)

Thanks for doing it so we can learn from your experience
I didn't. But I did look into it after buying the phone. Grand total after all the peripherals; you could of had a nice notebook.
Does "wrap around screen" mean something like "edge" popularised by some earlier Galaxies? The first time I saw it, I understood it would be a problem to hold such a thing in hand when you want to just hold it, not touch anything. This would imply imbalanced grip and this in turn would imply dropping the thing, so investing in some good cover is compulsory.
Yes, the screen wraps around the edges. Absolutely useless. especially given you MUST get a protector case for it... Not so bad as you might think when holding it. Trying to use other apps only to activate an edge feature would be my gripe... That and slides right out of your pocket no problem. :mad:

I heard that S8 (and probably + too) at first has some features turned off and when you turn them on, it warns about battery.
To be fair all phones are throttled. It's actually nice to see a stock phone give you the option to use the device's potential. That being said, if we're going to go in that far, give me some control of the kernel values. (Things I'm used to with custom ROMs). Altering WiFi/Bluetooth ping rates and CPU thresholds would allow me to mitigate the battery drain at the higher performance marks (the ones they advertised mind you.).
