    Traditional freighter routes include the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, and then UAE/Qatar/Saudi. Covid has put some routes on hold. I do know however that all the direct routes piggy back (second option, usually cheaper) off of the Middle East. It just means your package will take an extra day or two to get to SA.

    I went through this whole post and it actually landed up being a thread about shipping stuff in from Over the Seas

    Any reason why the Note 10? I'm kind of in the same boat as you.

    Been on Sony for hella long, never had any issues, except my last one, the XZ3, was a bit disappointing to be honest.
    Is it nice? Yes! but for a "flagship" it's pretty... meh.

    Bit late to this party but i'm really considering the Realme X50 5g for just under R5k.

    Snapdragon 756g
    6Gb Ram
    256Gb storage
    120Hz AMOLED
    5g
    Decent but not great cameras.

    Otherwise i'll just replace the battery in my iPhone 6s Plus and keep rocking that, not like it's causing me any real issues.

    For the first time in ages i’m very keen to switch to Sony (Xperia 1 II), but since Sony phones are no longer obtainable in SA, i guess that idea’s out the window. Shudder to think what it would end up costing upfront to import, and then you’re stuck with no support should there be anything wrong with the phone.

    Well I cancelled my order and have decided to wait to see what the pricing will be on the Note 20 Ultra.
    Makes sense to wait two days for a better phone at potentially the same price.
    Worst case scenario it drops the price more on the Note 10+
    @ImagineZA I currently have a Huawei P20 Pro and while I would have loved to go to the P40 Pro, the lack of google support makes it dead in the water. I dont like Apple, so that leaves Samsung and LG as readily available options in SA. LG is lagging behind, even though I loved my old G4. So Samsung it is, and after watching reviews on Note10+ vs the new S20's the Note just made more sense to me.
