I have this watch and got it free with my wife's P30 Pro. Pros: Great screen clarity and brightness Brilliant battery life (11-12 days) Solid build quality Great looking watch Cons: Quite large and heavy, especially if you've been used to a fitness tracker No third party apps No music control Companion app double counts steps i. e totals watch and phone steps Doesn't play nicely with my fitness pal I like it generally but if I was paying nearly £100 I'd want something that addressed the cons that you can get with cheaper alternatives


I have found that the watch face changes in water. If you lock it before showering, bathing etc it might be fine.


Thank you so much all of you for getting back to me. I have till the end of may to make a choice, hopefully I'll make the right one! Thanks again (y) (y)


Yeah, you can frame it that way. you can also say that we’re demanding, in some cases, almost as much from our smartwatch as our smartphone. We accept the scaling downof the user experience, of graphics, of functions, but we expect the batteries to keep it all going in smaller packages. the difference between a 41 mm and a 43 or 45 mm casing is enormous on the wrist. Smaller isn’t easy when it comes to battery.


Unless you want to get tied into proprietary operating systems which may improve battery life considerably while reducing the broader sense of universality that comes from Google’s WearOS as a companion to Android (which rules out newer Huawei’s, Samsung’s) the only really credible choice right now is Fossil’s Gen 5 series. The Fossil Garrett is quite a beaut. Not perfect, but good performance and a best in class on battery life. i’ve honestly never understood why 24 hours of battery wasn’t enough for some. Many smartwatch users rank themselves as ‘power’ phone users... so just put your watch charger next to your phone charger and dock both while you sleep. Do you need to tell the time from your wrist? i use my phone as an alarm clock anyway. and just for the record, you look a prize dork talking into your watch. Hello, Dick Tracy. Better stick to a bluetooth headset...... as a tip, if you wanted a Fossil Gen 5, if you have a friend or relative in Americaland who would buy it for you and ship it, they’re on special at Fossil web for $199 over £289 here... There are other designer brands producing REALLLY nice Gen 5 smartwatches... most of them are made by Fossil. they have a great design for the current generation smartwatch platform.

Hi Mr Switch, is there Any update on the uk release date for the realme 6 pro?


Oppo need to stop making bang average phones and get back to making quality media players


Way way too expensive for a Helio P90 unfortunately. If it had Mediatek's latest midrange, which is really really good, it'd be very competitive.


Same, love my 2z! Need a ring hold case though as it's one big phone.

Top video, watched it when released.


I’ve played on 120hz, 144hz and 240hz before. 120hz was a lot different for me than 240hz. You will have to have good enough build to get around 240 constantly however.


If you're getting those frames you'll see the difference.


yes actually, linustechtips on youtube have a couple of videos on this, also showing slow motion footage and stuff on reaction times.


Linus Tech Tips actually did quite a good video on this. I was sceptical. But the difference in the Counter Strike door section is quite erm... striking.

Im not sure im technically minded enough to overclock slower ram however it is good to know that i can use a higher speed ram. Prices on RAM are eyewatering at the moment so ill keep an eye on latest deals. Appreciate the information!


you can't mix ddr4 and ddr3 together in the same system . You can put a higher speed ram into the same system so ddr3 800 and 1333 together and it would sync to the lower speed(spd chip depending). You can then manually overclock the slower speed ram.


Thank you. I completely missed that this was a ddr4 (embarrassed)


Yes, but you generally shouldn't. I also don't think you can mix ddr3 and ddr4. If they are the same speed it should be OK in general.


Slightly off topic but can you mix different RAM together. Currently have g.skill ripjaws ddr3, 1333mhz, pc10666 1.5v

Ordered many things from alternate usually via. De site and have had great communication. With support even on there German site. Only thing kills it is £9.99 delivery charges although if price is right then it doesn't matter


Never heard of em either but googled them and turns out they’re a Germany based company that dispatch to many countries including UK (for now at least lol). Trust pilot score of 4.5/10 isn’t so great but many reviews seem to be from folks expecting to have purchased from a UK store and are miffed when they find out otherwise. Damn EU &#x1F61C;

This is what I plan to do. I can't even imagine RT being effective or coming straight into everyday games. This stuff will take years imo. That's where second and third generation comes into the market from NVIDIA to which I'm happy to buy. This RTX first generation will extremely expensive imo.


What XD What XD On topic: 1080ti can be had £400/450 not new but but but


I have a 10bit panel. If it was a TN the issue isn't noticeable.


Ive never heard this before in nearly 22 years of pc gaming. Your graphics card isn't the one to wash out colour your display will be the issue. Get a new monitor with a different panel, have a look online for what panel best suits your needs for colour replication. If what you were saying was actually true then gpus would be quoting how accurate their true colour representation was on the front of the box and those into photo editing would be buying cards to get great colours but they don't, they buy quality displays to replicate true to life colours and cards to push the pixel count.


I would buy this, but the colours are washed out on Nvidia compared to AMD. Anyway to improve?

MP values don't indicate much about the camera's quality. Mi A2 Lite has a 12+5 setup like Pocophone and the Mi A1 has 12+12 with optical zoom like the Mi 8 but the photo quality won't be the same due a number of factors such as aperture differences. Also there's differences in dual camera systems. See here&lt;. The Pocophone uses a depth sensor. The secondary camera has a high aperture which allows for a shallow depth of field (blurred background) effect. High MP isn't required for that function. The Mi 8 uses telephoto camera, which allows for optical zoom since the secondary camera has a higher focal length. The secondary camera is more about added functionality rather than increasing photo quality.


Yes, that's why aren't allowed to ship out any phones.


Probably nonsense, but all have 12+5 setup and mi8 has 12+12 with optical zoom, A2 has a 12+20 and any can be used as main camera.


That's not good Germany prohibite mobile phones sent by the post


This shares the same highly rated camera as the current Xiaomi flagship model - at nearly half the price, but haters gonna hate. Even the "terrible" cameras on my Note 3 &amp; 4 phones are better than the "good" camera on the Samsung Note 4 (which my wife owns). As I said, haters gonna hate - and make up excuses.

My first windows PC was with AMD, my first 'good' graphics card was with ATI and my second one was ATI as well. Everything they've done since has simply made me not want to buy their products. I don't think Infinity Fabric is the real future for CPUs, because it adds so much latency, but I don't think the Intel Ring Bus is either... So we'll see what happens soon.


Point taken about AM3 and AM3+. I’m giving it some consideration but I can’t see the game moving on to render my 3550 i5 useless. Its single threaded performance is making sure its my GPU bottlenecking me in games I play. I bought my cpu maybe 4/5 years ago. Maybe even 6. Its still decent enough. Not good for anything too intensive obviously like rendering. That’s a very good point. I want significant features to make the upgrade worthwhile. I forgot about M2 SSDs. I’m still using Sata 6gbs SSDs. I do think you’re bang on about what will likely happen with the 3000 series given the past. Tbh like you said before. The gap between 2000 and 3000 series isn’t going to be extensive enough to offset the addition in cost. Not really an AMD fan lol. Want to be but AMD make it so hard!


History says far different about AMD's 'backwards compatibility'. AMD have claimed support for AM4 until 2020, but this is really not that far away for starters. But what we to remember is how they provided support in the past, when they were actually creating new CPUs. The AM3 boards were replaced by AM3+. You could, from a technical point of view, use the latest version of CPUs, but you would lose enough features that most didn't bother. But here's the real question. Are you planning on replacing your CPU in the next 1.5 years? I have yet to meet a person who has an upgrade plan for CPUs on that short of scale. I personally hadn't bought a new CPU for 7 years. When was the last time you bought a CPU? By the time I want a new CPU, the motherboard technology has progressed so far and so fast that I want M.2 and I want all the other new features. If you plan on upgrading CPUs in under a years time, then sure, the AMD board may pan out slightly better. But again, who does that? Also, it isn't unprecedented that a motherboard lasts 2 generations. Ryzen and Ryzen 2 (that's the 3000 series) have been intel's standard for years. I have my doubts that AMD will fully support this motherboard with the Ryzen 2 anyway, I expect AM4+ to be the 'correct' board, but with perfunctory support for the AM4 (It works, but all the shiny new features don't) and you'll see loads of problems, require motherboard bios flashes (this is already the case with 2200g and 2400g), hear stories of bricks, and issues. So no, I don't think longevity matters here, I think it's all about PR rather than substance. It was a dig at Intel that AMD fans can use to 'shoot down' Intel when comparisons happen.


It is sad however as its a bit too little to late. Software isn’t really geared to multiple cores unless its at the top end for consumers like adobe or enterprise workstation stuff. Gaming wise. The gpu tends to be the bottle neck most times. Its actually making think about plumping for a 1080ti. AMD are so far behind nvidia I reckon we’ll just get the trickle affect. 5/10% performance gain instead of the beastly 20/30% between 9th and 10th gen.
