HD+ Calling on Three?

Hi everyone, I've only just noticed that whenever I make a call to someone else who is also on 3 or an MVNO of 3 (SMARTY, iD, Superdrug etc) I get HD+ on my status bar instead of normal HD calling. The call quality of these HD+ Calls is incredible. It only seems to be for higher end phones tho (The galaxy S, note and fold/flip lines, any iPhone above the 11 (including SE2 and SE3). It also seems to work with oneplus devices, but I'm not sure which specified ones. Lower end devices don't seem to work with this HD+ feature, such as the galaxy A line or Xiaomi devices.

This isn't really a question, just a quick little neat feature I noticed. Enjoy your day :)

I've been looking at mobiles recently and I quite fancied the Moto G200 5G for some strange reason.

A lot of the cheaper brands dont seem to support band 28 or 32 and we cant have that. :rolleyes:

Decisions Decisions.

How's the camera on the S20+?
Also, Samsung used to bundle a lot of bloatware in their ROMs, is that still the case?
The camera is amazing, it's got some really neat features that work really well. The portrait feature is nice on the rear camera cos of the ToF sensor, and the images come out really nice.


The ROM side of things. Mine came with barely any bloatware but alas, it was EE branded since it was a refurb. I flashed it with the standard UK ROM as soon as I realised it was EE ROM, and there was barely any bloatware. I removed Samsung internet, pay and their free app but apart from that I use most of the others (Wear for my buds2 and health for my galaxy watch).


Just realized I didn't say....the EE ROM had lots of EE branded apps as standard like My EE, BT Sport, EE broadband and some of things. Flashing got rid of these

Funnily enough, I was looking at that very phone the other day, its got very nice specs for the price. The main features being the SD 888+, and the very powerful modem this also bundles.

Here's where I saw the Moto G200 5G, guys.

I must admit I haven't heard of them before but the price seems to be good, maybe too good.

The phone I don't want

Any opinions folks? :unsure:

Hope you don't have to pay customs on top of that..
Here's another site offering it at a similar price:

Yeah I saw that site too thanks Lucian, just always very wary about these 'non standard' UK sites, as you say customs charges perhaps as well.

ooo nice. I tried it, wifey has a Pixel and I have a Samsung A52s.

No HD :(

VoWiFi is very flaky for me on three too, I've had several garbled calls now. I used to moan at Asus for not supporting it on the ROG Phone 3 (in the UK) but i'm beginning to think it's not worth the fuss.

You'd think it would already be in the UK, as when I first saw it, it was before 6pm for next day delivery.
