720p oO
why does everyone feel they need 1080p? I had an S7 Edge that reduced it's screen definition when in battery saving mode and believe me it's not easy to discern the difference!

Because so many people are morons unable to understand anything more complex than one number being bigger and therefore better than another.

People with normal 20 20 vision will not be able to detect pixels on a 5.5" 720p screen further that 10 inches from their eyes. That is detect not be bothered by.

The only real justification for more than 720p on a phone is for use with VR goggles.

Noone needs a 4K phone say, but 1080p is mandatory for this size. A 720p one just looks bad.

For £20 extra you can get Gretel GT6000 4G Phablet -
Dual Rear Cameras Fingerprint Scanner 6000mAh Battery
from GearBest
For an extra £20 I would have gone for another phone too, probably a Redmi 4A but for only £20 quid more than that I could have the 4X and for a few quid more than that the 4X Note. If you keep on adding to your budget you could end up with a Samsung 8 edge. At this price point I don't think it can be matched though. The A6 has a fingerprint scanner too by the way.
I know what you are saying lol For extra ££ or ££ you can get this or that etc;)
I was just pointing out the other one as has better battery, dual back cameras/front scanner and looks ok as i have been looking at it myself

'I don't see how one that normally charges, offering itself for free is a deal'...... Well gosh, we better shut the entire website down then of it has no purpose.

See those TVs that are on sale with £100 off, no point in that as it's only a hundred pounds, you might aswell pay full price..

Talk about memories. I used to go ice skating at the Magnum when holidaying with my grandparents in Prestwick every year. (Apparently it's just been demolished :( )
Haha, yeah, the skating was great, and the flooms in the swimming pool.

Buying a new model from a new manufacturer from gearbest - only for the brave..
If demand is high expect a runaround from gearbest on stock and despatch estimates.
Personally I'd wait till some decent reviews are available - for the price with the reported specs it sounds a bit too good to be true.


With Chinese budget phones, I don't think it's ever "too good to be true". I have a Chinese phone with very good specs, it cost £115. It's also been updated to Nougat. Can't grumble...

Edited By: danielrosenthal on Jun 21, 2017 21:51: .
I've done a bit of homework on this one and the company isn't that new (formed 2012) and have had 2 other models on release with much lower specs than this, but marketed as budget phones. The previous one called Maze Blade had 3GB of RAM with a 32GB ROM. Saw it for £95 on Gearbest. It only has a 1.3Ghz MTK Processor though. There are 3 other resellers of this as well as GB, but all seem to be shipping from HK, probably the same factory and all in the £125 range. In August they plan to release a 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM version of this which I'd be much more inclined to buy as long as this one doesn't flop in the meantime. Haven't read anything about it receiving security updates though even if it never progresses beyond v7.0 and that would be a deal breaker for me. They've got a pretty nice looking website of their own that reassures me they're not some fly by night company but still, no updates = no sale for me.

£127 if you're happy to order from China. Never had any issues with Gear Best myself.
Good find and like you I have made a number of purchases from Gear Best without any problems.
Oh, plus it's Android 6, don't expect an update to 7. Even the Umidigi, Elephone and Xiaomi phones get that.

Moto G5 might also be a better option.
Apart from the battery, there's nothing really great about this phone. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is better and has a Snapdragon processor.

Xiaomi better phones same price band .

Speaking as a person who has had a xiaomi redmi note 2 and now a xiaomi redmi note 4. I can tell you that it's not a good experience so far with the xiaomi redmi note 4. A significant number of apps don't work including an essential "call confirm" app. There are issues with people not being able to hear me unless connected through Bluetooth. Checking the Internet shows that it is a common problem with these phones. All issues combined, I would not recommend the xiaomi redmi note 4.

Don't want to hijack thread so quick suggestion Jabaltariq. If your problem is that people can't hear you when you use a wired headset /mic then would recommend you get soundabout app on playstore. Had same problem on note 3 but this has completely fixed. Default settings but after install shut down and restart phone.

Remember when my iPhone bent and Android fans laughed but now an Android phone does it, it's suddenly a feature?

iPhone 6: Bends when it's meant to remain rigid. Bending = defect.
LG G Flex: Bends because it's designed to "flex". Bending = feature.

Probably because the 'deal' has been posted more times than the UK's entire print run of 1st class stamps.

Rather buy from the UK though incase needed to return for any reason. It's £689 everywhere else in the UK so I thought a saving of around £70 is quite good.

Individual pixels are obvious with 720p at 5.5". It's a fine resolution for a display on a £100-£120 phone, but we are talking about a £170 phone here. It just doesn't represent good value.

I have the 16gb version, its a nice small box and it runs nicely. I also have a 1st gen fire tv and a generic t95k. This box so far performs far better than the others.
I use it for Skype on tv, google picassa albums and browsing net. As it's Android you can download more apps that are not on supported by your tv make.

How does hard reset protection get enabled in the first place?

Managed to remove the lock after spending some time with ADB... :D

That's odd, mine was completely fresh.
Maybe this'll help you? :)http://www.hardreset.info/devices/lenovo/lenovo-tab3-8/

Unfortunately it didn't help...

Even after a factory reset the tablet requires an internet connection and when that happens it checks with google and locks itself.
The only way would be to hack with adb but I can not be bothered, I will just return it to them.

Lol, did you get the association? Its an Asbergers test. You seem to be fulfilling the criteria with every word. Keep digging HUKD's is getting boring and you're posts and peculiar behaviour are a tad entertaining. :D

I don't know about it, but you might have it as you claim to have researched many self-tests on the subject. Please get professional help.
Secondly you suffer from paranoia. This could be a serious combination. You often tell people on hukd that the moderators are out to get you. No one is out to get you, specially people around you. I repeat this can be a serious condition. Please seek help on this too. You clearly show these when talking about your attempted self therapies.

This is serious advice too for such fidgety beginners. That way you can be safe and pack up and be on your way home at dusk from your little fishing day in the wilds of wherever you explore nearby.

Thanks, this is the calculator I always install when changing/reseting my phones. Wouldn't have paid the original asking price & yes, 10p is a probably steep (compared to free!), but would like to support the developer anyway for a well-made app.

Don't mind the negative comments - some deals (whether voted hot ot cold) may be worthwhile to only a few people. But that's what this site is about - worth posting even it it helps just the one person.

Exactly, actually there are several good daily-only free offers of genuine paid apps not posted here, only the one or two appsales ones gets posted here. I install about 5 or 6 of those under the radar ones weekly and they are proper paid apps, appearing in order history too, viable for future free upgrades tot their future paid versions, unlike about a third of apps listed here (ever-free category, not in order history). I don't post the other regular genuine paid apps (show up in order history) not listed on HUKD as don't have time for the trds.

Even when you list points/answers logically and refute as I did above, they revert to being demented and launch personal attacks out of the blue and avoid the deal discussion. I help them out of their conditions as far as I can and it's lots of fun anyway. Usual village idiots, hilarious. :D

That's a gamble you take when buying from China, as the Consumer Rights Act cannot be applied to countries outside of the UK.
I think usually they offer to repair it for you, but will be at your cost to post back to China.
AliExpress do offer a warranty for around £5-6, but have no experience of using it or where you have to send the phone for the repairs take place.
Paypal or paying with your Credit Card might offer some protection?!

It should be noted that Android Police do regular summaries like this - both for apps and games and then have a "bonus" round of stuff that turned up inbetween the lists as well. One tip: I use Google Play Newsstand and Android Police are on there, so add it to your favourites (I hate that you can't force a download of all new articles in Newsstand any more - was always handy before leaving home on my daily commute in case no wi-fi was available on my travels).

agree with the cable being flimsy. Had these for a year and it became exposed at the earpiece.
Had the i version of these, the cat (kitten) chewed thru the cable, senhieser want £26 for a replacement. The cables are very thin and flimsy.

How is it Optimised of Android?

How are you not understanding of this?
How is it Optimised of Android?
I got the same pair from Maplin for £44.99 in April.

http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/sennheiser-hd-461g-over-ear-headphones-a61xu

They are the same price still

They have both the Samsung g and Apple i versions (although the picture is incorrect on the i model)

I returned my pair last weekend as the removable cable developed a fault that made one earpiece cut out and Sennheiser wanted £17-25 for a replacement. So as the model is now discontinued I opted for a replacement as there are few alternatives in this price bracket.

I also looked at the Monster N Pulse headphones available at HMV but these were a bit too "Road Man" for my liking.

My thoughts after 3 months of use:

+Lightweight and comfortable.
-Cable is uncommon 2.5mm to 3.5mm and too flimsy in my opinion.
-Sound is good but not flat, lacking detail.
+Works great on a PS4.
+Great value for the price paid.

Voted hot as delivery available here if your local Maplin is out of stock.

confirmation by manufacture that the screen is 720p, which is a shame.

Its 720p but its a OLED panel.
Personally i don't see the point of higher resolution screen on a phone - you would need a magnifying glass to see the extra detail it gives, plus it slows down the phone and uses more battery compared to a 720p screen.

android logoAn Introduction to Android

In the world of mobile computing, phones and wearables, the iOS vs Android dividing line is fundamental, as the vast majority of mobile devices use either of these operating systems to power their systems. You’ll come across Android devices all the time when you shop for mobile phones, tablets, TV boxes and many more digital products, but what is it, and why does it matter for your purchase? This buyer’s guide explains everything you need to know.

One of the World’s Leading Operating Systems for Mobile Devices

Androids used to be associated with science fiction B-movies, but not any longer. Since the advent of smartphones, billions of people around the world have come to associate the word ‘Android’ with the operating system that keeps their favourite devices going.

As with most tech phenomena, Android traces its roots to California where, in 2003, a small company of the same name was founded. The founders aimed to create a specialist operating system for devices like phones and cameras that could adapt to the needs of users and use tools like geolocation more effectively.

At the time, smartphones were little known but Android were on the ground level, seeing the potential for advanced software to power these revolutionary devices. Google also saw their potential, purchasing Android in 2005 and taking their R&D team under their wing.

In 2007, Google struck a deal with some of the world’s biggest phone manufacturers, including Sony, Samsung and HTC. Under this agreement, Android would be made freely available as a Linux-based operating system. Developers would be able to add new features when inspiration hit them, but the overall code for the system remained in Google’s control. Since then, they have regularly released updates to the more than 1 billion Android handsets on the market.

What Kinds of Things Can Android Be Used For?

So, that’s a potted history of where Android came from, but you might still be wondering, what exactly it is and what can it be used for?

Android is what allows you to swipe across on your smartphone, use the virtual keyboard, and turn your phone into a gaming device with virtual controllers. It provides the sensors used to detect things like location, distance moved and temperature and motion sensors that identify how a phone is moved (handy for things like racing games). All of these functions of your phone are made possible by the underlying Android code.

When you boot up into Android, you’ll come across the Home screen. This is where all of your apps are stored. You can use it to access the web and your e-mails, or place a news sticker on the front page, and it can also be heavily customised if you desire (much more so than iOS interfaces).

The Home screen also provides access to the app database - an ever-growing repository of apps programmed in Java, usually via the Android Development Toolkit. Most of the time, apps are downloaded from Google Play, which has a huge database of software, all accessible via a simple swipe.

That’s the basic interface and how Android works. If you’ve ever used a smartphone or tablet, you’ll appreciate how diverse the uses of apps can be. From navigation aids like Google Maps to gambling apps, news readers, fitness apps, live streaming sports events, games, personal calendars, communication tools like Skype and dieting apps to spreadsheets and weather forecasters, apps have a massive range of uses.

So, the question of what Android can be used for is unanswerable: Its uses are becoming wider and more impressive all the time. Just check Google Play to find out what developers have come up with recently.

Android Devices: Specifications to Look For

When you purchase Android devices from HotUKDeals merchants, you’ll generally encounter a list of specifications, something which applies for smartphones, tablets, TV boxes and wearables. Here are some of the most important things to look for:

Android Phones:

  • Dimensions - How large the phone itself is (and how much it weighs). Will generally also include a measure of the screen size.
  • Processor (CPU) - The smartphone’s heart, the CPU governs how quickly apps will work and how efficiently your phone deals with video and photos. At the moment, high-end models like the Samsung S7 come with quad-core processors with four modules running at around 2Ghz each or octa-core models with 8 modules.
  • GPU - The graphical processing unit, which determines how smooth video playback and gaming will be. Again, as a benchmark, the Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with an Adreno 530, running at 624Mhz.
  • Display - Look at the size of the display, but also the resolution. As a benchmark, the Nokia 6 comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, so aim for something around there.
  • Storage - How much data your phone can hold (including music, photos, documents and video). Anything from 32 to 128GB is probably enough to see you through.
  • Memory - How much memory your phone has will influence its speed and reliability. Look for around 4-8GB of RAM at the least.
  • Camera - For many smartphone users, the camera is the most important tool. Most Android phones come with front and rear cameras. The front camera usually delivers a slightly lower resolution than the rear camera. Look for around 16MP from the rear for high quality images.android smartphone
  • Chassis - The material that your phone is made from can be crucial. Materials like anodised aluminium are top of the range, looking great and providing a resilient shell for the advanced tech inside.
  • Android Pay - The latest smartphones (and tablets) should also be configured to use a new service called Android Pay. Similar to Google Wallet, Android Pay allows users to store payment information on Android devices. With Android Pay installed, you can then use your phone to make secure contactless payments.

Android TV Boxes:

  • Dimensions - Measured in mm or cm (usually), the dimensions of your box can be an important deciding factor. Ideally, a TV box would be sleek and unobtrusive, so that you can slip it away out of sight.
  • DRM Approvals - DRM is a legal feature of Android boxes that determines whether they can receive HD streams from high-profile services like Amazon or Netflix. Your box manufacturer should clearly state whether their device has the necessary DRM permissions. If they don’t, you can still watch Netflix, but not in HD.
  • Resolution - TV boxes are built to deal with certain screen resolutions, so don’t get stuck with one that can’t handle HD. Check that it can deal with at least 1080hp.
  • Connections - If your box has an HDMI out and USB connectors, that should be enough to hook it up to your high-spec TV and laptop when required. If not, you could end up with a useless box that needs to be replaced. Go for HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0, not earlier versions.
  • Connectivity - Not the same as connections, connectivity refers to how the box communicates with other devices. Look for boxes with dual-band wi-fi and gigabit Ethernet connections. Bluetooth 4.0 and above could be handy too.
  • Firmware updates - The software that runs Android TV boxes needs to be updated every now and then, just like with phones. Check that your box offers OTA firmware updates that automatically handle any software changes.
  • Controllers - Android boxes will usually come with their own controller to navigate the TV guides they use. Look for controllers that you can get to grips with and avoid needlessly complicated models.

Android Tablets

  • Dimensions - How large your tablet is, and the size of the screen. Between 8 and 8.9 inches is standard (and more than enough for most people).
  • Weight - Tablets vary in their size and weight, but around 350g is standard and easy to handle.
  • Processor - With tablets, processing power really matters, particularly if you use them for demanding image or video processing applications. Look for quad-core or octa-core processors, with at least 1.2 Ghz of juice.
  • Graphics - The same applies for the GPU (more so if you love streaming video or gaming). Check the resolution as well. Around 1536 x 2048 is the new standard for high-end tablets like the Samsung Galaxy S2.android smartphone tablet tv box
  • Cameras - As with smartphones, tablets tend to have front and rear cameras. Again, look at around 4MP for the front and 8MP for the rear camera.
  • RAM - Anything above 3GB should be more than enough memory for everyday tablet users.
  • Disk space - Storage space matters if you are taking thousands of photos, downloading movies or capturing hours of video. Anything above 32GB will be fine, but hardcore data junkies should go for 128GB if possible.
  • Operating system - Obviously, this will be Android, but check the version. Look for Android 5.0.2 and later.

Android Watches

  • Dimensions - size can really matter with a smartwatch. On one hand, some people like larger watches that provide more viewing space, but no-one wants a clunky, poorly designed watch on their wrist. Anything larger than 5 x 4 cm will tend to seem a little oversized.
  • Weight - When buying online, it’s hard to gauge how a watch will feel on your wrist and weight plays a big part in this. Around 75g is standard and should feel absolutely fine.
  • Processor - They may be small, but Android watches pack plenty of punch. Or at least they should if you want to get the most from them. Look for quad-core 1.2 Ghz CPUs and they shouldn’t let you down.
  • Memory - Watches don’t need vast amounts of memory, so around 512MB of RAM will suffice. Look for devices with a couple of GB of storage as well, to give your data and apps room to breathe.
  • Connectivity - Bluetooth 4.0 and above, and wi-fi 802.11 at a minimum, as well as GPS functionality and maybe a micro USB could be handy.
  • Extra features - Think about what your watch needs. Check for e-mail notifications and composition, mapping, GPS, MP3 playback, speed measurements, distance tracking and more.
  • Battery life - Absolutely crucial for smartwatches. Look for long battery lives of around 50 hours of talk time or 100 hours on standby.

The Many Different Types of Android Devices

Android hasn’t just become a staple of phones. It’s actually been integrated into a whole range of devices, with more coming online all the time. Here are some of the devices to have a look out for when you check HotUKDeals:

  • Android Smartphones - The first application of Android was in the very first smartphones, and they are still the most common use of the operating system. State of the art phones like the Samsung S7 rely on Android to power their user interface, providing a huge range of apps for owners to use.

  • Android Tablets - Coming slightly after Android smartphones, Android tablets started emerging around 2009 and remain locked in competition with Apple’s iOS based iPads. Buyers can expect far lower prices for basic Android models, as well as a wider range of sizes and looks. At the high-end, the processing power of octa-core CPUs allows Android tablets to deliver multi-tasking more effectively, and the dual front and rear camera standard is better for photography fans. Android’s app database is also easier to use than iTunes and doesn’t require devices to be synched to Apple’s systems, so there are plenty of reasons to go for Android tablets.
  • Android TV Boxes - Most of the smart TV boxes you’ll come across when subscribing to services like NOW TV use Android to power their interfaces. That’s because they essentially use downloaded apps to show their TV guides and the options available to users. Android boxes are especially handy for streaming content from services like YouTube, Amazon and Netflix and for using with intermediary streaming services like Kodi. With their flexibility, they are becoming an increasingly popular complement to HD TVs across the UK.
  • Android Watches - Android has even found its way into millions of smart watches in recent years. Again, it’s down to the apps that these watches use to deliver their functionality. Essentially, these nifty devices combine the timekeeping of classic watches (and often their appearance) with much more modern features like email and call notifications, distance tracking and even voice activated message composition.

Choosing the Ideal Android Phone or Tablet

Now we’ve introduced the main Android products and looked at their typical specs, it’s time to briefly lay out how to choose the right product for your needs.

With smartphones, the first thing to decide is between Apple and Android. As noted above, Android phones and tablets tend to have better cameras, are more adaptable and can be more powerful, if you choose a high-end option. Apple phones are brilliantly made, reliable and full of great features, but the choice isn’t clear cut.

When it comes to choosing a phone, think about your personal needs. If you use your phone on the road a lot, or by holding it in one hand, a smaller model will make the most sense. If you like to prop up your phone and sit back to watch streaming video, a tablet or larger smartphone is the way to go.

Think about cameras as well. If you are a serious photographer, 8MP cameras will be essential but if you just love to take hundreds of snaps and don’t mind mediocre quality, don’t spend extra for a premium camera. Focus on having more storage space instead (or a good cloud based storage service).

For gamers, processing speed is key. That means going for up to date Snapdragon, octa-core processors with slick GPUs and at least 4GB of RAM.

And last but not least, think about battery life. If you need your phone for business and take it on trains or buses, don’t risk running out of gas and go for a long battery life. For others, cheaper models with shorter lives will do just as well (and there are always power banks to supplement your charge).

Deciding How to Pick an Android Based TV Serviceandroid banner

Picking the right streaming box can determine whether you have access to the shows and movies you love, so it matters.

Make sure that your Android box has the DRM permissions to access Amazon and Netflix. If not, you’ll struggle to watch your favourite shows in anything beyond stodgy low resolution.

Go for a really easy to set up box as well. Products from Roku and Amazon Fire tend to be simpler to get up and running and have well-designed controllers that can be mastered in just a few minutes.

Then again, there are more complex Android boxes on the market as well, like the Easytone Q-Box, which can be used to access more obscure streaming services. If you have some technical chops and time to spare for getting up to speed, they could be the right choice.

Choosing an Android Based Smartwatch or Wearable Device

With smart watches, there are a number of things to consider, but comfort will be chief among them. If your watch doesn’t feel right on your wrist, is too heavy or clunky for example, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of it as you could. Check the dimensions and measure them up against your wrist, and read customer reviews carefully. You should get a good picture for how the watch feels, even if you can’t try it on in person.

Battery life could also be a major factor when buying a smartwatch. If you want a long battery life that’s fine too, but you may sacrifice some graphical quality in the process. Similarly, if you want a crystal-clear display you will definitely lose some battery life, so it’s a toss-up.

Think about features as well. If you are into sports and fitness, you’ll probably want an Android watch with GPS and distance tracking, as well as step counters and an accelerometer, and sleep tracking could also be useful. Smartwatches that specialise in fitness will have more of those features and also be more accurate in recording fitness data, so they are the ones to go for.

Some watches also have the ability to use both iOS and Android apps - which can be a huge advantage if you have an iPhone or iPad but don’t want an Apple Watch. Pebble in particular offers versatile watches with great compatibility. This is also helpful because the Android app selection is actually smaller than Apple’s, so if you go for a watch with dual compatibility you can have the best of both worlds.

Aside from all those factors, style is inevitably going to factor into your decision. Watches are fashion statements, even if they are high-tech devices, which is why labels like Michael Kors are branching out into smartwatch design. Check out their range and you might find something with the features you need and some genuine style.

How to Buy Android Devices

Whether you are looking to buy a tablet, smartphone, watch or TV box, new Android deals are being announced every day, and the best place to look for them are the HotUKDeals Android listings.

Have a look at the deals on offer but don’t make a purchase straight away. With tech products, it makes sense to visit a store to see the product in action and talk to a specialist about their features.

With HotUKDeals merchants like Currys, John Lewis, Tesco, Argos and GAME selling Android devices, you should be able to visit a store to see your product in action. You don’t have to buy it there, just double check that it’s the right product for you.

After that, find a deal and make the purchase. Along with high street retailers mentioned above, you’ll find Android deals from merchants like ShopTo, Amazon, Very and Gearbest, so shop around or wait until the perfect deal arrives.

If you can, try to time your purchase to coincide with Black Friday (in late November), when tech companies and retailers tend to drop their Android prices. But in the tech world, discounts emerge on a weekly basis, so just keep your eyes open and seize your chance for a great Android deal.
