Anybody got one of these? I've been thinking about buying one for a while now for YouTube but normally just enable the stability settings on my phone or GoPro
Add 40 and buy from very.co.uk, you will get UK version , warranty etc.
Great seller A++++ ;) P.s. I've had no problems with these guys but use a credit card just in case...
No it’s not, there are a few impact marks over the unit on the LCD - but there are parts of the casing and components behind where they are. I really don’t think not charging is a realistic solution. I had the iPad replaced once and it was even worse. I had a screen protector that was removed but the only thing to consistently cure it was touching the casing which suggests it’s a grounding issue. I would possibly expect some related issue with palm rejection because of the small bezels but either way for an £800 tablet it’s totally unacceptable and I would not have another nor recommend anyone else does til they’re sure they use it in a manner that’s unaffected.
The touch problem on the 11" seems a software bug, did you try any of the suggestions here? https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8653631?page=2
that means your battery is expanding, it might get worse, try not to charge it too often and only when necessary.
note 7 for 64gb and is that for global version? I haven't seen it that cheap before
i got the note 7 for less on aliexpress
Red :/ Good price though
It does have sleep monitoring. My friend sleeps with it on and it doesn't bother him
Surely being bluetooth you would just use your phone anyway
Just so you’re aware Samsung pay doesn’t work in the UK with non European versions of this watch, which is what you get when you buy through global.
Yes, it does sleep monitoring. Have had this watch for 2 years now. Amazing. Although I do agree with @moshe_nahari the latest Tizen 4.0.2 update has reduced the battery life. Hopefully the next update corrects this.
That’s a 5 Plus. They are a lot more expensive than the older 5.
Genuine question, why would you buy this with US & Canada map support only? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having a GPS watch like this in Europe?
True, the metal straps are great but the silicon are a bit poop
brand new 5x for £420, got mine last week for £370 eBay..... cold
Hum... I can only find sites in Italian and Turkish and they seem confused if it has it or not....
Dear customer, Thank you for your message. The model number is: SM-A505DS
I just assume they mean something like google pay isn't available in all countries, and so nfc may not work in your country? Or what Mr smithee said above
That answer makes absolutely no sense. I think they mean many things you'd use NFC for are not common in other places. At least that is what I hope they mean.
8) this reply is not realy helping. Somebody tell me what do they mean by this?: "However, this may change in different countries as NFC is not available in all countries when you leave the UK. (It is market dependent)"
Yeah Based on Trust Pilot I wouldn't shop at John Lewis either...
Gsmarena has the a50 as region specific for nfc, so that model will be guess work if buying from sites like eglobal. It would be so annoying if Samsung are doing that (annoyed) surely a nfc chip must cost pennies. They don't need to follow the Xiaomi and Huawei's of this world.
There might be series for Asia without NFC & most probably Eglobal is offering it. Why would they not mention NFC if the phone had it? They mention NFC for other offers, so... I will not take the risk, cause I'm after NFC under 200quid.
I'm not sure either, I would definitely consider if it had NFC. I found the model on Samsung Malaysia and that says no NFC.
Sammobile says the a30 has it ( Here ) who to believe?
Ordered this on Sunday night, posted Monday from Hong Kong, arrived through DHL this afternoon with the free shipping option, less than 2 days. Cost me £290.99 with the ‘3MAR’ 3% voucher code, and had £4.66 Quidco tracked as well. Came with the free case. iPad is obviously genuine, and is I think Australian judging by the plug, haven’t checked the model or serial number yet though.
OP .. "or the silver version is £3 cheaper". Interestingly enough, it's usually the silver/space grey that tends to go for a premium?, and the rose gold and such like has tended to rather go for wayyyyyy cheaper ... Interesting how that works out that?, lol.
I bought some AirPods from them that were faulty I contacted them (due to reading what you've quoted) and they told me to go to the Apple store which I did and had no issues getting them replaced. I've had no issues with any eGlobal purchases and this is a great price, so heat added!
Nothing shady about the grey market
If someone needs to ask why buy a big sensor camera, odds are they dont need one. A big sensor camera is vastly superior, but if you dont need the quality or dont enjoy using one there is no point. And i dont think cost (if you can afford either) or size come into it - you either want to keep/present your pictures or you dont.
Price higher now (Sat 23rd March), up to £225.99. Still low in comparison to UK price though.
Bridge cameras have longer zoom lenses. Professional cameras are very good in low light conditions.
just consider this equivalent to your dslr of old - but probs better tz70 is totally different, small sensor superzoom
More control over the camera, f stop, focus, ISO, shutter speed, depth of field.
They have not stock
Probably already mentioned (haven't read the thread) but since Android 9 came out, the One UI update allows Bixby to be remapped to something useful (without 3rd party apps). If you've disabled it, re-enable Bixby, update it and then you should see the setting to configure what it opens on short/long press.
BxActions it allows you to assign the button, also the latest oneui allows you to reassign if just not for other assistants
Thanks for the info :)
The screen is the same, so is the camera, ram, wireless charging, IP 68 and many other things. Camera is slighty better on S9 due software enchancement but in some scenarios it’s took better photos than S9/Note 8 and also a faster chip than S8. Battery wise both are quite similar. If its a £100 difference IMHO the upgrade is very minimal. S8 to S9 was quite a poor iteration. I’d get the S9 just for the sake of having a slight better spec for future updates however if money is a concern then the S8 can last you the next two years easily. The super amoled on S8 is gorgeous
Gonna have a tough time if you receive a bent, dented or touch disease ipad. These new pros have had out of box issues.
PayPal won’t give you section 75 cover as a UK credit card payment direct to the seller will.
Leave an email and get £5.99 off and probably loads of unwanted emails. Pay using PayPal linked to a credit card. You get better protection and seven weeks to pay the bank. PayPal wait 3 weeks before taking money. Credit card then a further 4 weeks to pay.
Wonder if the mi max 4 will have a notch,can see it
I think most of these software issues, come from people buying Xiaomi phones with custom ROMs.
If it's the global version, it will be same phone as you'd buy in the UK but as you quite rightly say, with no warranty. That said xiaomi are pretty reliable imo.
Forgive my ignorance, but apart from the warranty risk, would this be exactly the same phone you would get if ordering it off Amazon UK for an extra £70? Are there any differences in the software? I'm looking at the pocophone. Cheers
Does eglobal let you change currency to dollars. Can't see it (shock)
So my Snapdragon variant was dispatched Friday but no update to tracking yet...
Ebola.... I remember those days. But it was very sad.
Arrived today all sealed no dramas 7 days after ordering. Bargain
Just to follow up, started tracking on yodel site on Thursday, delivered Saturday morning! Spot on and eglobal emailed to keep me updated
I see it is now expired. oh well, just need to wait until the next deal at that price
Oh and I think someone mentioned you get a US/japanese two pin plug with it and a UK adapter so that 's another thing to bear in mind. Personally I don't care about that but I know some may.
Thanks for the informative response, will give it a think about over the day.
Let me know how you get on please :)
That's fair enough then, im impatient but remaining positive :)
Yeah, if you get one, they aren't the best with communication, mine just turned up on the doorstep with no notification :D
It's alright mate im just getting impatient. They originally told me it was out of stock then within minutes it quickly changed to dispatched which was a bit weird. The link they then gave me just says 'dispatched' with a few codes on. I paid the extra fiver for insuring the delivery so hopefully i'll get an email soon saying it's with a courier which i think is the next step?
Sorry mate, that's just the average time it has been for me. Have you raised a ticket?
Yeah, had a couple phones from them, not recently mind, I just chose the basic (priority line?)
Cheers switchy. Is that based on recent experiences? Which shipping option did you select ?
Around 10-12 days roughly.
What's a rough delivery time on these from Gearbest these days?
My comment was said in jest. However as far as I'm aware these are posted from within the UK... Possibly wrong!
Fitness tracking with mine works well. Samsung pay does too. There was an update to the watch OS, maybe that fixed the issue??
You can only get the S3 in 46mm. I wouldn't buy this from Hong Kong. A lot of people (myself not included) have had problems with some of the fitness tracking on these watches and buying it from Hong kong would make it very difficult, if not impossible to return. Also, i'm not sure Samsung Pay would work in the UK with a Chinese device. it certainly doesn't with the phones
There was a deal posted yesterday for Amazon Germany which worked out as £158 with next day delivery. That would be a much better deal than waiting ages for this to maybe arrive from eglobal, in my opinion. Whether you want this or the new active would depend on whether you prefer the minimalist look of the active or the more rugged look and rotating bezel of the S3. They'll both run the same OS version (I think) and have similar battery life and functionality.
Same price as the new Active. Not sure it is worth it
I found it worked better in my phone when I selected "desktop site" in Chrome! (lol)
They've been OK for me in the past, just pay with Paypal, even better if you have a nationwide flex plus account
Like are they unreliable? Do they pay taxes etc?
Is there anything I should know about eglobal?
Even better :D
That seems to be an XZ2 not XZ2 compact.
What about Toby deals? Are they any better? They price is the same.
Didn't make any difference because by the time my phone developed a fault and they'd strung me along for so long I was outside of the 6 month claim period
What about paying with pay pal?
I don't mind grey imports at the right price, what worries me more is the potential limited frequency options of they are sourced from some countries. This could mean no 4G from some carriers? https://www.techwalls.com/samsung-galaxy-note-9-sm-n960-model-number-differences/
Exactly, so it will happen again definitely
£600 for a UK device? We've seen a few already... Three a couple of weeks back were selling for £579.
100% yeah, I csn guarantee that it will be under £600 at some point before august
@Mrswitch since you are a bit of a guru on finding phone deals, do you think Note 9 will drop another £50-100 by August (when the Note 10 is predicted to come out)? I've had Note 2, 4 and 5, loved them all- main pull for me is the pen. It becomes like a mini tablet which makes it much more useful for productivity. Thanks!
