    Just got a new mobile, and decided to go 5G.

    (I need better download speeds)

    It is aesthetically, quite impressive.

    Phenomenal cameras, but for money spent nothing like what you could get spending the dosh on a camera!

    Phenomenal display, but not a patch on monitor used by my desktop at one tenth the price.

    Yet the above two features are almost exclusively what I have found are covered in the online reviews.

    I am not a gamer, so its performance in this respect is of no interest to me.

    So, what about its performance as a telephone (NOT mentioned by any of the reviews)

    I did need something capable of faster downloads from internet than what I have previously been using.

    BUT:

    As a basic telephone, it is beaten hands down by my ancient, cheapy, bottom-of-the-range, 3G phone: an 'HTC Desire C'!

    So much so, that I am considering keeping the latter, even though that will mean I am paying two subscriptions for my mobiles.

    (I guess that is me: one an anachronism, and one a 'bleeding edge'!)

    Hi Elizabeth. Here is a pdf you might like. I haven't read it and I don't think you should either but it has some cool pictures in it, including Microsoft 1973.
