What's JoyUI like?
What about 5g? 4g is old now, 5g is coming
And not forgetting the Huami Amazfit smart watches. You could well be right.
Xiaomi are turning into a Chinese version (although far bigger) of Dragon's Den. I believe they have used the cash their 2014 funding campaign raised to invest in companies like Blackshark, Yeelight etc etc.
Crikey, rogparki, were you snoozing? Never seen you so low in the comments section on a Chinese import thread... (cheeky)
Geekbuying? Really? Where do they get there names from seriously.
Not the pro
You've linked to P20. The P20 Pro is £655 on that website
Link is not for Pro
The Global version with B20 is cheaper on Gearbest.
OK, Calm down. Some folk don't know and some do know and think it's funny to wind people up because some people like to make a big deal out of Band 20. It's often difficult to know the difference. Band 20 is a 4G band used by all UK networks to some extent, but O2s 4G network relies on it entirely, and therefore tesco and giffgaff as well. If you have an O2 sim and no B20, you're not getting 4G.
Well, whatever band 20 is I guess I have lived without it so far and I have loads of money and spend all summer abroad on holiday, so if you do know, perhaps I should feel sorry for you. 2 ands in a sentence terrible ain't it. Am out of here keep your little secret.
Tbf, I don't know what band 20 actually is either, but after reading all the posts about it on hukd, I DO know that if my next phone doesn't have it I'll probably die a horrible death. :)
That's how I feel when people say "but you still get 3G".
Placed an order and paid with credit card but charged in USD (although the on screen order checkout stated £1.88)? Once I completed my credit card details, there was no further summary confirmation payment page. (annoyed)
This or the RAV from amazon?
Couple of months usually from China lol
How long do you think to arrive?
The real one has an MTK6797. The implicit 6769 said to be in this makes it a high risk buy.
Also mentions two resolutions 2560×1600 and 1920 1200 :/
Not bad spec but would be nervous spending this much on an unbranded device
CPU: MTK6769, Deca Core,up to 2.6GHz Ultra-low-voltage platform and Octa-core processing provide Octa / Deca ... which one is it ? Not that it makes much difference being a mediatek CPU ..
Thanks. It seems I need an Official Global version of the phone which does seem to cover band 20, so I'll keep looking. Looks a good deal as long as you're not on O2.
No band 20 so probably not.
Trying to figure out if this will work on O2 in the UK for 4G. Can anyone help, please.
How is zte or nubia with software updates?
Cant make calls on it
"Makibes G03S is equipped with independent GPS positioning, you don't need your smartphone to locationg your positon." Can you simply put is inside the car and leave it to track your car from a web browser or smart phone from home/office?
£114 ish with AliExpress any good ?
Your better off with a Stratos, it's much better looking watch. Any good deal on the Stratos?
I'd read about it yesterday. Those specs are amazing, but I genuinely don't see the point of a gaming phone. A phone, to me, is the worst platform for gaming and it seems a lot of money for the best version of the worst platform. That's just me though, although I read it had a clip-on thumb controller which could be interesting.
Don't know if you have seen the official launch info of the black shark it is now listed on the xiaomi mi.com site https://www.mi.com/blackshark/ full specs under paramaters heading. Price is excellent 2 versions 6gb /64gb for £335 and 8gb / 128gb for £391 comes with liquid cooling if you haven't already seen it have a look very impressive goes on sale on the 20th in China
That makes sense.
I think the reasoning behind that is that the leaked specs are very similar to the leaked specs of the Mi 7 like snap 845 screen inbedded fingerprint scanner 6 or 8 gb ram 18:9 oled screen and they are probably looking to charge a premium for it being a gaming based phone and they want to keep the very reasonable price of the MI flagships,anyway we will know more tomorrow They also announced today that the next major launch event of 2018 is to be on 25th April in Wuhan China the MI 7 hopefully
Aye, I'll not dispute the specs.
Looks like decent specs here! not sure about 4k HDMI connection... (annoyed)
I've got a couple of the Teclast T10's... Superb tablets. (and have DVI). Costs a bit more than this tablet tho.
All i need one for is to show clients photos and maybe run spotify on it.... :/
The Acer is good for an uneven four legged table !
I agree about the iPad prices it's either feed a small village or sell a kidney then buy an iPad !
I have updated it as it should first thing when i power it on. No problem for me :D
Mines playing up since the ota upgrade. Google play services won't update. Have u had that?
Ive the fire hd 10 is this a worth the upgrade?
You might prefer this Design looking like Samsung Galaxy phone of course :) the other does not have home physical button !!!
I've got T10 for a bit less 1 month ago from Gearbest.. i dont think this could be a good deal at all. All works perfect. super fast tablet. like this one of course the only thing is that this is 8'' :)
It hit £270 in November but I've only been actively looking for a few weeks now.
What's the cheapest it's been?
Where do you see postage costs as I’ve not seen it yet and don’t want to have to go through whole check out process to see it if I’ve been silly and missed it somewhere
Also stuck on Android 6 with no official updates ever (annoyed)
I have a LePro 3 (but the Snapdragon 821, band 20 version), bought many months ago as LeEco went bust. Cost about £100 from eBay. Very fast phone (for money) and I like the Chinese extra features (IR blaster, auto turns on with alarm, etc). But out of the box it's full of Chinese spam (a lot of which doesn't work because LePro's servers are offline). Had to root the device to remove Chinese apps and then flash various patches from XDA to get Google Pay etc working. There are some Android 8 ROMs for the LePro 3 on XDA but they don't support all the phone's features. I spent ages messing about with different ROMs but by far the fastest and most compatible is a the official ROM from LePro (Android 6.0.1).
Yeah, that's the only reason I put this up really.. Everywhere else I've seen it, it's been shipped from China. I guess having it shipped from the EU you have a better chance of getting help if something doesn't work.
cheaper else on elsewhere but shipped from china.
Nice looking apart from no band 20 and no microSD card slot, its normal on LeEco.
I’ve seen a lot of deals for other handsets, the s8 posted here today for 440, for instance. It occurs to me that Xiaomi will perhaps have similar offers popping up and I’m not so worried, it will want to compete and a lot of people will be tempted by s8 over this at that price point. Just wanted to reassure you but I don’t know what I’m talking about so hey there’s that too.
It is odd that the majority of their devices have had really sub par cameras until now too. I don’t know if that is representative of the market; they don’t want wireless charging and they don’t want a good camera. If that’s the case then demand could be low as the mix 2 would be a much better value option.
Well going off the number of pre orders on the grey sites, which seem to be numbers like 18 or 27 or 8 and certainly not the hundreds, you should be right. Never know with Xiaomi though I remember previous Mix devices selling out quite quickly
Thanks for the heads-up never had experience pre ordering with them but had no issues on already released phones
No experience so I couldn’t say, I expect it will be popular as they’ve hyped it a lot but again no experience perhaps they hype a lot of their phone and things up. It seems to me that the trend has been for the price to drop and the recent p20 pricing made my mind up despite being an entirely different company. It was out at 599 and lots of people got a free gift to try and sell for around 200 and then on release price went down to 400 so the gift for a lot was a waste of time and for others they could just buy it separately.
They're pretty bad, I ordered a few things and my order sat at processing for 2 weeks. They did eventually let me cancel on live chat, but emailing them yielded no response or a 2-3 word reply in Chinese. Wouldn't buy from them ever based on that crappy service.
I have it working on the door sensor to take a 12 second video but I can't find a way to extend that period, in any case if the light wasn't on the video is useless anyway
It's passable in daylight but when the light is low very poor
As il be buying just for the aspect (and not gateway) what do you think of the quality of the picture ?
I've got the gateway (not the camera one) and it works fine - got 25 devices connected to it. Great bit of kit.
Excellent price for this camera, voted hot. I've bought two of these a few years ago for underwater filming during my snorkeling trips and they've been brilliant. The original battery didn't last long enough for my needs but I've upgraded it with an extended one (and the corresponding casing) and never had a problem since. Also, if you use the camera underwater don't forget to buy a few anti-fog inserts, and please don't use shiny selfie sticks or mounts. Barracudas and other predators confuse them with their prey and might hurt you.
Same here! Was laughing at the thought of a smart umbrella!
Just under £44 from amazon so not a great price to save £4 and lose customer service and a warranty. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00UFFZUO6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1523227546&sr=8-1π=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Yi+2k&dpPl=1&dpID=41qxSJ-K8zL&ref=plSrch#aplPreloadName_1523227567993
Amberella, ella, ella, ella, eh heh!
Thanks OP. Just bought the camera, case and stick for £60 delivery with insurance. Will be well happy using on a trip to Lisbon when we go to eurovision 😁😁😁😁
MiDong's on its way! Thanks op. (highfive)
Mi Dong lasts 7 days (strong)
Heat for mi dong!!
MiDong is 1.23 inches.
This has a plastic shell not metal, the webcam is at the bottom of the screen and the wifi I believe is only 2.4ghz, it doesn't say if the screen is IPS or TN. Another option is the 3L Pro from their Italian store, then add a M.2 SSD yourself, that way you avoid possible customs and get a metal case. The screen may be IPS according to others on techtablets. You will get dual band wifi but the bios is locked.
I bought the EZbook 3L just before xmas, No vat or duty as arrived quickly via Germany, not sure how they get round that Does the job as intended, only gripe, USA keyboard and charger was USA with a very small jack plug.
and USB3 and 1.3kg, however the processor passmarks at 1833, which is poor. 256GB is generous but probably unbranded and basic.Unclear if the screen is IPS but would guess not. Someone tell me how the VAT & duty on this works - normally at this price, duty and vat adds 25%, however it seems you can order shipping from Germany to UK and the price doesn't change ?? Any experiences doing this ?
Think of it another way, this device has a slower, fewer cored cpu than the average budget smart phone.
HD screen, decent amount of RAM, SSD drive..... What's not to love? Surely the processor will handle standard tasks?
It's not really that which is a worry - some of them are really insecure; there are dozens of sites full of webcams inside people's homes because they either had the default password or the webUI uses no protection whatsoever. There's some where you ping the default port of 10080*, then when you get a response you use an onvif protocol to get the video feed, sometimes with no username/password. That lets you access the camera, video and lets you work the model out. From there you *may* be able to get in to telnet to the device and circumvent the whole network. In Worst Case Scenarios, obviously. 99.999% of the time it doesn't go that badly, but there are legit privacy / security concerns when your home network is basically routing through a massively insecure third party server in another continent. It's not massively different from cheap wifi plugs and lights, though. *edit, I might mean port 554 or 10554 - not that it matters :D
Yes I believe you can. But haven’t done personally
I don't see why some people have a problem with these or where they are placed. We have a similar one set up outside our house which is empty 6 months of the year. I don't really care if the Chinese can see my patio doors or that someone can go up to the camera and rip it off the wall easily, we would still get an alert to it taking place. When our house was broken into I got an instant alert and was able to call the police and a neighbour who helped secure the house afterwards. While the footage wasn't great at least we knew straightaway something had happened at our home as was able to act instead of a neighbour calling me up days later or when we next visit and find our patio door done in and 50 local cats living in my kitchen.
Not really. Well unless they have a set of ladders and a tiny screwdriver
Surely as it's a IP camera, you could have it streaming to any third party software you like, e.g. iSpyConnnect, for monitoring / recording / triggering. And use whatever cloud backup you like?
I have a MI6 no band 20 and i use a tesco sim and it is no problem for me it uses HSPA+ when on internet and the speed is very fast when browsing much faster than 3g and HSPA
I guess thats because 3 network also runs 4G on 1800 B3. But if you are O2 then only 4G band is 20
I agree. I'm on 3 and my Mi Note 3 is fine, but some networks rely solely on B20.
Typing on a Xiaomi mi mix from gearbest, no band 20 but barely noticed any issue with lack of 4G ( on three network) - been such little issue I've convinced the Mrs to get a Xiaomi mi 6 from AliExpress via the offer on here, same again no band 20. Maybe other networks aren't as good but otherwise for me been absolutely fine. Edit 4Gb version for 240ish
I almost brought this, but noticed no B20. Lack of B20 put me off
This is cheap but I got it for £138 in January from gearbest so it's not the cheapest Great bit of kit. The quality is much better than I expected
