Hi, I have a Samsung phone which I am going to replace soon. I want to use the new phone a lot more for photography and video. Your comments about Samsung removing features which allowed you control over your phone are cause for concern. I dislike the way Samsung block a lot of functionality to 3rd party apps. I heard that anyone using the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 cannot use the DJI App to use the wide or 2x cameras. If this is the case this is very disappointing. Also, the maximum shutter speed of 10 seconds is very poor, when other phones like Google's Pixel, Huawei's P30 Pro, or Apples XS Max allow much longer exposures. This is an important feature for low light photography. I like so much that their S10 phones offer, superb screens, great audio, flexible user-friendly UI, and more but this apparent lack of support in other areas for consumers and 3rd party products and apps, makes me seriously consider dropping Samsung. This is a shame having been a consumer of theirs for since the S3, having moved over from Apple. I would love to stat with Samsung but dropping features and functionality with their updates is really putting me off spending my money on their products. Any suggestions on the best platform going forward and why are welcome.

Can anyone explain why phones bought outright such as the S10 5G are being locked? The consumer owns the phone, not a network, nor the manufacturer. I do not understand why they are being locked. The purpose of buying a phone outright is to use whatever network you want. I am looking for a Samsung S10 5G, not for the 5G feature but for other features the phone has over other S10 models. Eg Screen size, TOF, Battery, Color Choice, etc. I want to use the phone in the UK with a sim of my choice and use a second sim when I travel overseas, again the sim I choose! Any suggestions on how to achieve this and hopefully retain a valid 2-year warranty within the UK should there be a problem?
