    Dad tried seeing how much he could get for his Huawei (can't remember what the model is now, but I think it's just over a year old) and all the phone shops would offer for it was £20.

    Yeah I've jumped ship now. Only one place would take it offered £30 which is a bit crap considering similar handsets are going for around £150 on the same site. Its pretty clear they have killed the prices as they know they wont be able to re sell them so you get the handsets scrap value.

    I should pop a Wanted thread over on the Marketplace, see if anyone's got a Huawei newer than my P9 that they'd part with for cheap...

    Wouldnt so much be malfunction as in apps "may" not work, as mentioned the current handsets are all certified so theory its fine unless software devs start blocking them from future updates.

    So, It has been announced, that The US and China are resuming talks, Which does also mean a lift (although it's still not come into affect) on Huawei and Google.

    Is it me or do Trumps speaches sound like they come out of a Janet and John book?

    edit: for those not aware of said books, they were a series of books in the 80's aimed at pre-school kids to help them learn to read

    You're both a few decades out: they started as Alice and Jerry in the 1930s, then were Anglicised (from the Australian originals) to Janet and John in 1949.

    If you read that quote an it didnt state it was him you could be forgiven for thinking the person who said it didn't list English as their first, second or third language.

    A person with a gift for learning languages, would likely have put it more eloquently...
