doesn't matter but the reason i asked because i was curious when you were planning on cancelling it? waiting 2-3 months, or cancelling sooner?

I got the s10+

I got virgin Alberta # on PPD plan, ported that to Koodo line and after few hours ported the # out to save money :) basically cancelled the Koodo line on day 2
Wow you got one heck of a deal...

Folks are still balling over this sale, question though?

Is the Samsung direct sale dead-ish? That is to say, is BestBuy still the best overall deal?

According to RFD logic, the Samsung S10 Series phone and Playstation Classic are the two must-own devices of the last two weeks.

God bless.

I didn't get the Geek squad protection from the best buy deal, I just bought the clear plex. I don't think that is cancellable as it is just a once time purchase

I heard that Samsung launched an update that include night mode for the camera. Did anybody get this update yet?

I got the Clearplex but for some reason, there's a cut out for the speaker at the top, but it also has some of the actual screen exposed. It also doesn't completely wrap the edges and covers up the front camera. Did they install the wrong one?

Haven't gotten yet but reviews are not very positive. I have gcam installed for those situations but it's not as convenient

I accidentally shoved the "Sim ejection tool" in the "noise cancellation" hole when trying to eject the Sim tray, should I be worried about damaging anything?

You potentially broke that mic, and breached the water proof rating. If calls still work fine (i.e. others can hear you without issue in noisey environments) you should be OK in the first. For the second, I wouldn't let that phone get wet.

When do you use the GCam and how do you find it in comparison to the S10 default camera? I'm coming from the Pixel 2XL and I fell in love with the Pixel processing and Night Sight. I also sideloaded the GCam but haven't experimented much with it yet. I'll probably start taking pictures with both to see how they compare but I appreciate any insight/thoughts from you or anybody else on it.

I'm coming from pixel 2 as well. I only took 2 pictures with it using the night sight and the results seem better than using the default camera. I wish we could use the wide angle lens within gcam

Bud they installed the case friendly screen protector, it's terribly cut IMO.

Go back and get them to install the full screen screen protector.

Geek squad is just silly sometimes.
