    I cant get my head round it Dive, I am ok with lap tops, the one I am on at the moment screwed up badly a couple of years back it would only run on 32 bit and in safe mode so I bought a windows disc and driver disc and re programed the thing, some of the apps are in russian but hey ho/ps in the corner it says this is not a genuine windows copy.

    I find the pinky is the best way to navigate the smart phone; thumbs are too big and clumsy.

    You sure it is a Samsung galaxy and not simply a galaxy bar? It's just a theory sir, but it's possible those fiddly buttons you are struggling with are actually chunks of chocolate.

    I have a vintage flip-camera phone for calls and a Samsung Galaxy tablet for everything else. Decent screen and keyboard and not too heavy to cart around.

    had the same issue with every bit of tiny tech i touched...
    then i found out all i have to do is talk to it...
    yep, just say to the device, "a dig at divvy in the gf, por favor", and poof it was done...
    it did, at times, seem to have a slow down in efficiency, but, i was told that was due to my drawl instead of using the king's english...

    damn brits still run the world...

    Mine’s a Samsung Galaxy. I got one of the cheapest deals and pay under £50 per month for 3 phones. I only use it for calls, WhatsApp video and an alarm clock. I do all of my internet stuff on my iPad.

    Not sure if my phone is smart or not. It's an LG flip phone that has, unlike my previous one, a sim card so it must at least be a bit smarter than it's predecessor. For me, the thing is used for what it's name suggests...a phone with the "bonus" of being able to take crap pictures.
    🤔 😉
