Fast charging USB C for £2.65 too - cheers 🔥
Hi Are you connecting 5GHz https://c.mi.com/thread-504417-1-0.html?sources=1
My wifi connection with this phone is very weak. Has anyone got same experience or solution. My Mobile internet is super good, but downloading or browsing very slow when I'm on wifi. Any help will be appreciated
Ordered mine from BangGood on 4th May, arrived today (y) And no custom charge either (party)
got my mi A1 in 9 days from eglobal six weeks ago and was really pleased overall,was a little pessimistic prior to buying,but that i found was in the end unfounded.
Can someone please explain why this is so hot? Same phone available brand new (sealed) on eBay from within U.K. for £150. Guaranteed no import vat or courier handling fee (c£35), which would bring this to over £165. £15 more and you have to wait for Hong Kong postage?
4 seconds to acquire 13 satellites, inside a house nowhere near a window, seems pretty good to me! (Looks Orange as I use Twilight)
You've got a duff one, unless the Power 2 has systemic problems. None of these issues on a 1 or 3.
Not many in this price range and at that spec have Android 8.0. Xiaomi's Mi A1 is at least £20 more, for instance, and its battery is half the size. The Cubot X18 Plus has it for the same price, but again, smaller battery (4000mAh). Embarrassingly many of the phones on Gearbest and Banggood with otherwise similar processors / storage etc are running Android 6.0 for some reason. I guess software is more difficult than hardware. The Power 3/3S's nearest competitor is the Vernee X (X1?), which apparently will have Oreo in June.
Android 7.1 . All new phones are Android 8.0 or higher. Android P is already out. Cold
I have used the satnav a couple of times a week without issue. Slightly faster at locking in a route than my previous Redmi Note 3 but a slightly slower processor than the Snapdragon 650 in that older phone.
Explanation about the camera specs at 65mp made me chuckle with 23x zoom and at this price. Avoid
No your wrong. The Sharp Aquos S2 can be bought for £120 from Joybuy so it's £20 more and way better specs!
I guarentee you it will look nothing like that pic.
The cheapest Sharp Aquos S2 is £160, so around £60 more
Not really. You can buy a Sharp Aquos S2 for £20 more which has a Snapdragon 630, NFC, a more than decent camera. Full HD display, plus a bezel-less display.
There isn't a newer model, only a separate gas detector. I often see promo prices from BG and GB around £25, it has been lower as mentioned. Just timing, if you need one now or can wait.
Its at £22.55 atm on BG. Is it still a good deal or is tgere a better model now?
can someone post a link to a device handler they have used with this for smartthings please? Google brings up a few different ones and lots of chattery noise but I don't want to buy this without knowing one of my fellow HUKDers has this working with smartthings! Thanks.
Disagree. Had some Honeywell commercial fire systems installed in a redeveloped property at work. After several months Honeywell agreed their product was not working as designed, installation not at fault, and ended up paying us to replace it all with a competitor product as they couldn't warrent it was going to work with their products.
I agree but things they ship are tested to heaven (I work for them)
anyone received theirs yet?
For £2.56 what could go wrong? Apart from all of it, that is.
Entered code and got - this code is only for use with specific products. Shame cos it looked a good deal!
Yeah I got a set last time £1 odd then got some small magnets to magnetize the bits they've had lots of use so I've just bought some more at this price
If only it came with the small tri wing for iphones :(
Sorry for silly question but would this work if the light was pointing upwards? was thinking of installing this in outside light but unsure if it was work? is it only for a celling fitting?
Thanks for clearing that up.
So, any idea which Chinese government sponsored servers this sends data back to without knowledge (or permission) of the consumer?
Confirmed by who? if you switch off a light-switch, there is no power transmitted to the bulb. Unless it has a huge battery hidden somewhere, it's physically impossible. Just like smart-bulbs - useless if someone flicks the wall-switch.
I expect they work by switching the light switch on to power it. You then switch the light on/off via the app only. I.e. switch must be left alone. Turning the light switch itself off will cut power and functionality unless it has a built in rechargeable battery which I very much doubt :(
Already looked there, there's no setting for it. I'm used to the buttons the other way around as I was previously using a Nexus with normal Android. Before that I had a Samsung S3 and that never bothered me so maybe I'll get used to it again. Edit: I found it. It's under Settings > Full screen display. Looking online I think it used to be where you said - I guess they moved it with MIUI 9.5. Now all I need is a dark theme for the UI. Edit2: Apparently you can't download themes any more because they weren't GDPR compliant!
Surely that is dependant on which hand you use, lol It's he same way round as a Smsung so it don't bother me, if memory serves me goto: Additional Settings > Key and Gesture shortcut. You should be able to swap them there.
I'll take a look at it. I'm not liking the swapped back/apps buttons either. Like why would they make such a poor design decision as to put the button you use most in the least comfortable to use position?
Install Nova Launcher, lots of customisation options
That's MIUI. I the heft and the cold feel of the ceramic back. Pure quality.
Comparisons are fake, best pictures selected and shot on tripods.Theybare not a true representation of what you will produce. All of Oneplus's phone have had poor camera's Video reproduction is rubbish with a 20-30% crop of the original field of view on the front and the rear camera Look for low light video reviwers it's shocking, all the major reviwers avoid showing this like the plague. Any movement brings a blurring to the video, there is no ois so it really is hit or miss. If you need a good cam you won't find one here.
Since my 3t updated to oreo late last year the sound gives out every now and then. Means I miss texts because it has stopped notifying me unless it still lets me know via my watch which it does occasionally.In call volume also drops off and I have to reboot to improve both these problems. I also bought from O2 so I was covered by UK regulations.
"feature", lol. I have a few groups on 'mute' on WhatsApp and almost every few messages I get, that notifications is showing up. Completely useless.
The notification about apps using battery is a feature in android 8 so you can't balme that one on oneplus, if you do a search I think there's an app which can get rid of it
It's registered with them ("for warranty") and they know where it was bought from. But then, so did LG.... It wasn't until I came to claim for the GPS issue that they refused to admit there is a known problem and said new phones bought on eBay are not covered. Hopefully I won't have to find out! So far very pleased with my 5.
As you say"pot luck" in many cases. With Chinese New year on the 16th Feb I think everything could slow down over the next few weeks.
I think its 'Pot Luck' as I've just received parts using Aliexpress which arrived in 9 days.
I regularly order from both companies. Banggood is nearly always quicker (1-2 weeks on small items) with the exception of EU orders.
I knew there was something I'd forgotten at the shops earlier! ;)
I've also paid a lot less, you can buy the Dupont connections, cables and headers separately. When they put Arduino or Raspberry Pi in the title, it's an excuse to charge more. Same as charging £6 for a laptop power connector when you buy 100 for around £1.
Oh yeah before I forget you can convert a .hcx to .gpx but you should always store the file as .hcx as it contains more information (heart data etc.) Once you convert to .gpx you can't get that data back so keep the file as a .hcx and only convert it down if the app program your using requires it.
I've joined the group now.... Apparently you can just pay 1.69 and get the .tcx of the walk from that I was able to change it to .gpx with GPS Babel pc program. You can import to Strava but as you probably know you can't export from Strava without paying them a monthly subscription. But it doesn't matter because you can import it to Strava and then import it as a file and you never need to get the file out of Strava so you won't need to pay the sub. You can get an app as a APK called mifit exporter which will get the file for free but you have to root your phone something I would only do if the notify and fitness app started restricting access to the .hcx which I hope won't happen.
Does this watch allow export to strava then? But only with the subscription? I use a Byrton GPS but that allows tcx,gxp export
Dont know as I dont have one myself, just did a search on the amzfit forum on xda as I was on it anyway reading up on the Amazfit stratos which I am waiting on. Probably best to try that or their are a couple of facebook groups too. Good luck.
Thanks for that, I got a Hcx file and used GPS babel to convert it to gpx. Do you know if there is a python program as a backup to this. I am worried that strava might pay them to remove file export functionality. I am looking for a cast iron way of extracting the data out of the db file
nope its battery operated and has an adhesive pad.
£2 on ali, but thanks.
only if you cant use sticky pads!
Do I need to get a engineer to fit this sensor light
I've just set mine up, took less than 5 minutes and all linked to Google Home...
Just received mine... it doesn't work. Just doesn't even turn on. And in trying to get it to work one of the little arms that hold the bulbs in the socket have snapped off...
What is the product make to connect this with Google Home? I have received the bulb but no instructions or manufacturer to search on the Home app

Bought 3 last time for friends and me, 2 where as described, 1 wouldn't grip the head and they refunded for that one so no biggie.
Does this come with an attachment for those small ‘star’ type screw heads on the underside of MacBooks?
Thanks OP, can't resist tools!!
That's what she siad.
Only complaint is they're not magnetic, but other than that it's fine does what it's meant to.
Same backapck as OP from £6.99 dlvd ex-UK https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162761800768 looks correct (and now reflected in earlier post, thanks).
That price is for a placcy raincoat though.
Do not buy one of these , I went to a festival with one of these and both arms straps snapped before I even got in festival (lol)
Dreadful deal. Twenty seconds ebay search shows from £6.99 delivered ex-UK https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162761800768 or even less from foreign sellers.
Cheap Chinese company with lots of bad reviews beware
Hi All, Please forgive with my noob questions but I need some help with understanding LED Strip lights. I have seen a few versions on the net/ebay etc - one which is powered by the the Mains AC & another which is powered by USB cable. 1) If I get a a USB Cable version, can I simply connect the USB cable to a USB Wall Plug Adapter & then just plug it into the Mains like we do with most USB Devices? Is this safe? 2) Ideally, I need one with a Dimming function & some sort of control - I just want Warm White but the single colour strips I have seen have very limited options - the multi colour RGB ones seem to have a RC with a dimming function & I have seen "Full Kits" go for about £8-£16. On these RGB Kits can one set a "Warm White" colour or is one just stuck with the set colours any kit offers? I ask as they all seem to offer just plain bright white or yellow? 3) Regardless of whether a Strip/Kit is USB or Mains Powered, - must one always use a power transformer/adapter of some kind? I do not understand what all the Volts & Wattage numbers mean tbh. I need a a strip that is about 2m, offers Warm White, is dimmable & preferably has a handheld remote at a reasonable price - Can anyone be kind enough to help a noob out please? Big Thanks!
£1.12 on Aliexpress if you use the app. If only I knew how to post a deal from their app.
Or 24V ones - 1/4 of the copper losses, and the constant current ones are much more efficient too.
I bought some of these the other day are are two basic problem with the, one is that they are not bright 24w led equivelent about 120w over 5 meters is not bright. Secondly there is a big voltage drop across the 5 meter so close to the end connected to powersupply its bright and other end is less bright. One realy needs to run a separate pair of wire next yo it and connect it to the strip every 1 meters. Professional strips run on 240v and have localized powersupply on the strip.
Yes your quite right and even if that. If you want to protect what your putting it on you will need some kind of base layer that will stick and then superglue to led strips to that layer as dependent on how much you want to use the lights the bulbs die out eventually which will then require replacement
Breaking Bad cosplay !
Change your diet?
Got mine for going on public toilets , the smell can be toxic (lol)
Will give this a go , got quick a few worktops to cut over the next few months .
On AliExpress it says: Size QTY 1.0mm 10pcs 1.5mm 10pcs 2.0mm 10pcs 2.5mm 10pcs 3.0mm 10pcs Note: It is manual measurement, there may be 2-3mm error. Quite some margin of error on a 1mm to 3mm bit.
Bought from AliExpress - cost £1.49 after buying in dollars and 7p TopCashback so = £1.42 Great price!
Weird, now showing free for me too, wonder why it didn't first time.
Says free postage for me .
Plus postage, so £2.49.
If you select free postage options and are prepared to wait 20-30 days for delivery, you should be fine. You can never say never, but ordered 20+ items from China and no issues with Customs, using the free postage options. They usually write on packaging it's it's a $5 MP3 player, so customs are not interested. If you select express delivery by the likes of DHL and UPS for example, it seems nearly everyone gets customs charges as the big parcel companies manage this on behalf of customs and will invoice the sender for the customs charges once it arrives in the UK and hold on to it until paid.
Any custom charge to uk
I'm no expert but doesn't it being 3G inherently mean it has no band 20?
The picture on banggood has the lens of the A119 not the A119S with the Sony lens. The Sony lens isn't movable.
Thanks for that feedback. I haven’t actually ordered and was seeing if it would go hot or cold.
This will go cold mate 1. Bang Good + Dash Cam = BAD 2. Probably not going to be genuine = BAD The best Viofo was the A118C-2 after that they haven't been that good.
