Latest thinking – fat good, sugar/carbs bad.

Cash refunds

When I purchase something the money has to be paid at the time of the transaction. I accept that, but when goods have to be returned etc., I’m furious that I have to wait 28 days for refund. Grrr!

Thank you for sharing your idea Phil, we agreed that this would make for an interesting debate too.

We invited Phil to tell us more about his idea and write a convo for us here on Which? Conversation. Phil’s convo can be read here: https://conversation.which.co.uk/shopping/why-do-we-have-to-wait-so-long-for-refunds/

Tyre garages

When I got my tyres replaced, the garage checked the tracking free of charge. They said front and rear needed adjustment and charged me £70. How can I be sure they didn’t make it up?

Hearing Aids

Why are small hearing aids so costly?
A small, in the ear device, to improve my hearing, would cost £3000 -£4000. A top end Apple computer costs less than £2000. Are older people being ripped off?

battery life on smartphone

totally agree with you, these smartphones are suppose to organise life, remind me this, plan my diary, my next meal, stream live video on your daliy travel to and from work, carry less items in you bags, bacislly one smart phone does it all, WRONG!,,,, would be perfect if the battery last more than 8hours, it’s not even long enough for a working day, so it gets to mid afternoon and battery getting low, so you have to do the app shut down save battery mode, which is a complete head arce in it self, this aloan complicates your diary and reminders, which apps do you turn off, don’t miss that Important message, the boring travel home, nothing to do other stare out of the public transport window,

Yes there are battery boost packs to keep your phone topped up with jucie, but this is another item to be carried around, nowt to mention, charging that up as well,

just inconvenience

all the technology the world has created, we can run a car of battery’s and sunlight, even H2o,

but a battery for a smart phone to last at least a working day,

come on smart phone tech guys, you get payed a lot of money, do somthing thar will actually benifit smartphone users, (probably 80% of the world)
