Re: T&T OFFICIAL New Vehicle Prices & Discussion Thread

If it’s true then for the lurkers in this thread, all I can say is, doh stick! Correction that 389K is for the Leather option with additional features see ...

Smith values his wicket and works extremely hard to keep it. He was dropped on 49 and faced almost 3 overs before he took a single. He seems to enjoy Test cricket most.

very few players today are like that.

Re: Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 10/10+

the Note 10 is a lower spec than Note 9.
the note does have a lower resolution, smaller battery, no headphone jack and no expandable memory compared to Note 9.

also i believe the S10+ is better than those two versions of the Note 9 and 10 without having an S-pen.
