Good price but it's a Celeron CPU, so not worth it.



Newsflash, it's 2017 (not 2001) and Celerons are actually pretty good for light productivity work, media consumption and web browsing these days.

On another note, I wonder if this is actually a 256GB SSD or an eMMC drive - because a proper SSD will make it feel snappier.

The specs look good (esp at that price) - but for me the software updates (or lack of) are pivotal.

If they provide updates, or a custom rom community do, then I'd consider it but I suppose they are unknown factors.

Slow in what way?

Kodi 17 can be installed on any box, so no backdoor required.

The only thing lacking from 17 is specific hardware acceleration but this is the case for all AMLogic devices with 17.

There is no such thing as a Kodi reliant app because it is an app in itself.

What do you mean there is no official stable global ROM for these phones? Nearly all Xiaomi phones have Official stable Global ROMs. Here is the Redmi 4X Official Global Stable ROM<

In your previous comment you're talking about Redmi 4 Prime which is a completely different phone but that too has an Official Global Stable ROM< which was first released back in January<

This deal is the Redmi 4X "Global Version" meaning it has B20 and will be factory sealed and pre-installed with Official Stable Global ROM. Many YouTube unboxing videos and even hukd members who have bought this phone from previous deals would be able to verify that. It is not the China market version. It is from the Malaysia/Indonesia/Singapore.

That's like only 5 minutes ago? (considering that some of those day's elapsed over a weekend ... )

Your also forgetting that these are all from China, and 'sourced' from there directly too?.

Both BangGood and GearBest for example take on average about/around 10-14+ day's or so for theirs? (and both of those 2 source their Products from the same source too!, eg. China ... )

Either hold tight (within reason of course?), or call it a day altogether?. :-)

It is a lot of work (including having to contact Xiaomi to unlock the phone) to achieve it but when you do you will be rewarded with a bloody excellent phone for the price point. I'm currently using the white version and after ripping out the buggy, bloatware and possibly virus filled rom you get a smooth running phone with 48 hr battery charge compliments of the hefty battery and the Snapdragon's always on energy efficiency.


Are there XDA Forum links for what your talking about/what you did?.

Got the Sony pad. It's OK but fiddly when changing over from keys to track mouse and doesn't track as cleanly as a normal air mouse setup.

If you're thinking of buying this, you should probably check out the Sony PS3 chatpad. Physical buttons with capacitive touch. Probably a few quid in CEX and seems to sync easily to PC and Android

What was the IPTV app people said was best to use for these?

Just to give an update for whoever will wonder about delivery, like I did, I received it yesterday so it took precisely 11 days.
very quick and easy to install. Kodi is preloaded and so are the addons. I used for a couple of hours playing with it and streaming videos also from a USB stick and seems pretty quick to me. Only the remote it seems to work only when it's precisely directed to the front of the box but I'm planning to get one of those remotes with the keypad.

Yes seriously I said Blu phones not Bluboo, but lots of Chinese phones have been reported as sold in Western markets with spyware on them. It's the norm on phones from Chinese manufacturers for their home market

I got Bluboo XTouch phone.... Bought nearly two years ago.... Excellent quality kit...I am still using the phone.... Navigation works like a charm without needing data connection....
It even survived couple of drops straight on concrete floor....I don't use screen protector of case... Build wise excellent....
However the company lies through teeth... They quoted a battery of 3000mah.... At best it is 2200 mah.... Camera is just crap....

Buy it on one plus website for less in US dollars


$479, at the current exchange rate is £363, so you're technically correct.
However, that's the mid-market rate and you're unlikely to get that from a credit card.
Then you have to use a credit card that don't charge overseas fees, such as Halifax Clarity, Revolut or Monzo.
Then you have to hope your card works when paying, because it won't be registered to a US address.
Then you have to have a US dropbox address, most of which you pay a fee for.
Then you'd have to lie like a hairy fish on the customs invoice to avoid paying VAT when it enters into the UK.
Then you have to "get lucky" that it makes it though UK customs unnoticed.
I love a bargain, but that's a lot of buggering around for a few quid saved (maybe).

Xiaomi are considered one of the top Chinese brands.You do get software updates unlike most of the other cheap Chinese brands , but not monthly security patches ( i was not aware that any phone did ).Their Miui version of android adds a few useful features . But it does have their Miui equivalent of google apps backing up your photos, set up, messages etc ( Its useful for the Chinese were Google is banned - but largely unnecessary on the Global versions that have the google apps installed ). These are the only bloatware installed ( there are no dodgy Chinese apps ).

Google nexus phones always update to latest android version and receive monthly security patches but they are very expensive even older models & 2nd hand used are pricey I had the 5x and it was an excellent phone until I dropped it ! 😞

There is a neat little trick that can be used via a DP to HDMI controller, which can enable full 4K, HDMI 2.0 and some boxes and boards use this.

That's been fixed. Allegedly

Should be 20% VAT, import duty and handling charge - if caught. Couple this with warranty issues and it's not a good deal. The phone itself seems to have a number of problems, some of which, like the 999 calls have or can be resolved buy firmware updates. However, others are hardware related - they have been forced to install the screen upside down which can create a strange ripple effect when scrolling. I think oneplus have a lemon here.

The Q10 runs Android 7 and is the first Android box to be able to play full Bluray rips it also supports Dolby True-HD, Dolby True-HD ATMOS, DTS:X, DTS-HD MA, 5.1/7.1 LPCM, DTS, and Dolby Digital AC3 and i dont think the Shield supports DTSX.

The Q10 will play anything you throw at it and supports 10tb HDD's.



I already researched it, stopped when it didnt say Android TV and said Android, the OS designed to run on mobile phones not for TV,straight away limiting the 4K streaming capabilites.

Shield doesn't have the internal HDD storage expansion though and there are other ports that the shield lacks and my be of interest to audio/videophiles.

Seen this on banggood for less aswell but again only gold available which is the same for every other site I check. Great specs for the price though

Cold? You sheep insane?

Geekbuying's spec for the Elite shows NFC, not sure if it's accurate

But weird the 'elite' version has a lower processor than the standard version. Are there any other differences?

Edit, to answer my own question.. the elite version also has no NFC.

Anyone who has one of there can you tell me how it performs

Yes I received mine. Video through hdmi to my TV isn't as good as when I connect laptop to TV to play same content. Not sure if that's something I can change settings off but all attempts so far have failed me. That said it's just a tiny tiny bit jerky. Noise of the fan is very annoying and it seems to kick off the moment I do anything, like playing a YouTube video. Ordering wasn't an enjoyable experience - lots of miscommunication.

Yes I have mine and it's a new as it can be.

I know that many of the products go through a quick test before shipping but never to the point where I have noticed any use.

Customs do also often open a package to validate against the declared value, so they may not treat the contents as delicately.

Vorke also have a contact option for support, although first point of contact should be the supplier.

Geekbuying also have a thread regarding order problems here, which is likely to get a better quality of response than the normal CS routes.

Good plan with the chat message. In the end I didn't have to as they just shipped it. I have a feeling my earlier email gave them a nudge. Don't know how it's possible, but maybe they managed to forget to ship it.

My understanding is that Libreelec is still only at the experimental stage for the S912 due to the lack of mali drivers.

This would seem to be the best place to ask though.
