They just cancelled my order after 24 hours of it waiting for approval, no explanation given. **** you Samsung.
Is this your first order with Samsung? Did you receive a cancellation email?

Something's happening in the channels. I wonder.

waited 38 hours and order finally went to Processing! It's taken a lot longer than my previous purchases, which were almost immediate.

Gents.

What's a good app for automatic brightness adjustment with a bias towards higher brightness?

I've turned off the auto brightness feature on the S10+ because the battery case I have allows me to have higher brightness without discharging.

God bless.
Why not leave Adaptive Brightness on and let your phone learn the adjustments you want?

Got an S10+ 128GB (SM-G975W) this afternoon, from BB.

Here's the breakdown:
Carrier: Koodo
Phone/S10+ 128GB (+$900.00)
Medium Tab (+$360.00)
Koodo activation fee (+35.00)
Trade-in Nokia E72 (-$360.00)
Geek Squad monthly protection, 2 month minimum commitment (+$15.99 x 2)
Free Google Home (potentially -$100.00)
Free Phone case (-$44.99)

Happy with the overall cost as I've sold a couple of older phones recently to cover the cost of this purchase.

Why not on large tab? Could save another $50. You get an additional $50 off compared to medium tab.

This is my exact phone, in black.

Well done, I wish they would've thrown in ClearPlex, but otherwise you did very well.

Glad to see more converts.

It's not learning fast enough for my taste. I would love if it had a bias meter so I could set it +20% and leave it there.

AIs are still pretty dumb in 2019.
I guess that depends on your definition of dumb is, as my smartphone and AI is a great deal smarter than me!Face With Tears Of Joy

The Google Assistant girl started to get sassy with me after a few errant requests, so I can't be too dismissive.

Went to local best buy at marche central and they said there is no such thing as geek squad 100$ credit for 3 months. only free protector screen and 50$ acessories
If people are canceling their geeksquad plans after 1 day, I could see why employees or bestbuy would be hesitant to give out the discount. The discount was easy for people to get(some only had to stay 2 months). It was the case that was difficult to squeeze out. As is, people are being given a screen protector guaranteed, even if they do cancel.

If most people are going to cancel the plan after a day, why should an employee bother giving out a discount if it reflects badly on them.
Feel the wraith of the Old English Sheepdog.

On Koodo. 8gb, unlimited talk, text, 1000ld minutes. $45.

Because Koodo has a record of me doing early cancellation with them on another phone awhile back. This limits me to Medium or lower tabs.

ClearPlex, is that the screen protector? Forgotten to mention, I have some kind of screen protector coupon from this transaction as well.

The OOTB screen protector from Samsung is doing a good job for now. I'm leaving the screen protector coupon till a later date (when they have a decent / good quality protector to choose from...because of the curved edges. Screen protector manufacturers tend to need a few months before they can get the curve right).
