There are lots available, I just wondered why it reviews well. I obviously could watch some videos , though I though I'd just ask your opinion.Cheers


Looks good it’s waterproof and the app that goes with it looks easy and simple to use

omg have they seriously still not linked the miband2 to strava!

does this use the same app as the amazfit pace watch? i cant wear ethe 24/7 but can a mi band so thinking if i can link 2 straps to one app?

MiDong doesn't need a fitness tracker to tell me it rarely gets any action

Edited by: "Winter.Cloud" 19th Jan

I had one these last year and sent it back because it suffered a lot of overheating when used with an additional hard drive inside, even then the fan cut in, which is does a lot and is very loud, requiring a hardware mod to fix, so build quality is not what it should be.

Gemini Lake boxes with native HDMI 2 support are imminent too, so expect a slew of Apollo Lake boxes to get reduced in price.

Compress the OS, move your personal folders to an SD card and install non-startup software to SD too...

The hardware specs always look so tempting for the money but take my advice. Just don't. I've had my fill of cheap chinese devices. Poor quality control, buggy, lack of support, no meaningful warranty..... Unless you like a gamble and have plenty of time to waste trying to sort out the inevitable problems, avoid.

You're thick aren't you? Read what I replied above.


Pipe down you clown. I read exactly what you said.

I didn't buy my 3T to shoot 4k video and not many do. If I were doing that seriously, I'd buy a proper camera. No one buys a oneplus for its camera. It's crap

I do take plenty of short clips and they upload to the cloud and delete from my phone. Done. No issue.

There are many many reasons to have this phone over and above your stupid use case (that no one else in the world would seriously use a phone for)

What proportion of the sales do you think are for the 64gb model Vs the higher on all models? The vast majority take the base storage. Over 80% of the iPhones are sold at 64gb. Are 80% of people wrong and you're right? Should they all have given their money to charity? Or could maybe, just maybe, you could be wrong?

I was talking about shooting 4k videos. I know very well everybody is on Netflix nowadays. One hour of 4k is 20GB on that phone so you do the math. Again, if 64GB is enough for you in 2018 you really don't need a Oneplus 5t. Get yourself a Xiaomi Note 5 Plus for £150 and donate the rest for charity.

When I first got into Chinese mobiles i bought an Elephone P6000 because it seemed to have the best bang per buck. Soon realised there's more to it than bang per buck, many Chinese phone manufacturers simply do not support their phones properly. Elephone definitely don't whereas Xiaomi do. How about Maze?


To be honest, when I am only paying £170 for a phone that has a great spec, feels solid and is working fine at the moment, I am not bothered about support. I have had a few updates that I have installed so that is something I guess. If I get a year out of this I will be happy but I will probably get a new phone in a year anyway.

Only used geekbuying once and maybe I was unlucky but my experience isn't a good one. Ordered a phone and it never showed up. Currently going through PayPal to claim the money back as I just keep being told "please be patient" by their CS. It's been 3 months!

Banggood on the other hand I've ordered lots from and never had a no show. Usually takes 4 weeks. Sticking with them from now on. £79 on there and worth the extra I would say.

The Xiaomi Reddit thread recommends Banggood and Hong Kong Gateway on Ali Express. £69 from HK Gateway) They say avoid geekbuying.

So buy with caution people!

The 2 times I had issues with China bought stuff I was ok with the customer service. One torch (£35) I sent back to the manufacturer (Nitecore) and they replaced with a new one. Took 3 weeks in all. One tablet lost it's ROM memory and I sent a video and the seller refunded me.

It's £100 off the official UK pricing. Why cold?


I'm guessing it's because of the lack of band 20 (this should not be so much of a problem with EE and Three's networks although they do still use band 20 for rural areas and also better building penitration, but O2 and Vodafones 4G networks are largely made up from band 20).

No idea but if you scroll down it has screenies of the languages menu. Both the GLOBAL and CHINA ROM support English, just the GLOBAL variant has Google Play Store. Either way, you can flash whichever at home. The phone itself is the same - the only thing that changes is the software preinstalled. It's easy as pie to switch between the two or go for a custom ROM like LineageOS after it arrives. Usually just getting the unlock code off Xiaomi that causes most people a headache - though for me it was easy peasy. Just tell them you're a dev and they send it through in a week.

If you're talking x722 import for £110 it's only fair to compare against x626 import at £78.

Both cameras look good :


Both have good processor for price point (far better than competition), with the x722 taking a huge leap and performing better than £200+ competition.

What site?

The Italy store is slightly more, but, would that be faster shipping? Or is the DE store as fast?

However, it's still only a 16mp camera...


Yes, but more megapixels doesn't make it better.

Haha Mediatek junk. No updates, stuck on Android 6, no Band 20, half the battery life of the snapdragon version. Sure it is slightly more powerful, for about 30 seconds until it has the well documented overheating and actually runs slower.

You have to be mental to buy this, especially when it's the same price/more than the SD version.

I had this phone on o2 and I can 100% confirm it ran as fast as 3G for the simple reason 4G coverage on o2 is not great.

Unfortunately I have had 2 of them die on me and dont rate the quality of this specific Xiaomi phone

Both died in a similar fashion, changed batteries, changed power ribbon then finally found the poeer IC chip was at fault on both

Unfortunately I couldnt find a replacement chip

Love xiaomi but this one product I hate some crappy luck

I own a MediaTek version of one of the older Note phones; good phone, but yes, treated like the unwanted son when it came to updates; sometimes it would lag nearly a whole year behind the main family for a major update. Some phones were getting MIUI8 before it got MIUI7 for example, and it only got MIUI8 a couple of weeks ago - with MIUI9 already being pushed out to many other models.

The same seems to be happening to my newer Note 3SE, the standard Note 3 has had the MIUI update, I havent.

I've just been looking for a media player this morning, this is showing much better specs than anything similarly priced on amazon. Are these dongles ok with heat?

Just noticed no remote either, I'm guessing one would need to be picked up too. Any recommendations?

Was looking to buy the h96 pro TV dongle yesterday. m.gearbest.com/tv-stick-dongle/pp_679589.html?wid=21

Anyone help me device which one? The cpu/gpu seem to be similar, similar benchmark scores, same interface ports. Gearbest one is £33.49, both come without a remote. Same android versions. The pro TV dongle does get great reviews though

Edit.. I see the h3 does 5ghz WiFi, the pro TV doesn't. Struggling to find reviews for it

Plex on this???


Afaik yes, tiptop price for spec and nice chunk off with code, not sure why they assume the 905x is a lower slower verison of the 905 as seems to fly on a android box just the same...

Great for using on trips#hotels#away as even if hotel tv has no usb power port you can run these off any usb battery or 5v charger!

I mean, I know it's it's a bum bag but most people would wear them around the front where your tummy is it would look really strange.

But... who wears these on their bums?
