thanks. I think I'd agree.. maybe a step down in performance/quality of build but up in battery life and OS updates... decisions, decisions!


Unless you want latest OS updates, I don't think it will be a good upgrade as S7 edge was a flagship and this is a budget phone. Display wise it's 1080p vs 1440p on S7 edge. It has bigger 5.9" display vs 5.5" on the edge. I don't have this myself personally so can't really comment on the performance.


worth upgrading from an s7 edge to this?

No, you can still access Apple discounts if you are a totum member. It links you to an apple sub- site called NUS extra Store Home


I don’t think so. Sure Totum doesn’t link off to Apple anymore (UNiDAYS or Student Beans only from outside a college or uni network)

That's about right for a 2-year old motherboard. The ones that are ridiculous are the gaming ones. You essentially pay £50-100 for naff LEDs and garish styling, oh and WiFi. The VRMS on the Pro A are the same as the gaming boards upto about models costing £350-400...for a motherboard (:I


msi pro a z370 £85.00 msi pro a z390 £99.00 msi pro a z490 £150.00 How prices change at release and they are all pretty much the same chipsets


MSI Pro A £150


You would think no one would buy at this price and just get the much better 10700 but if you think about it z490 motherboards prices a ridiculous at this point in time so may be for someone it could be a buy.

Not much in it I'd say! Similar weight, the HyperX has 50mm drivers opposed to 40mm for the Razer. HyperX is about £6 more expensive, and I really like the Razer software and stealthy all black design - that's what made me get these.

Ah ok well yup I guess humans are weird like that.


(embarrassed) XD :D 😁 sorry mate I was just being sarcastic. Can't get my head around why ppl would pay 200+ for a pair of headphones. 70% of price you pay for the brand. Also I can bet the bottom dollar 70% of ppl won't know the difference, a bit like blind tasting food or wine, which is a fact


I paid £224 using a debit card. It’s very easy. Most sites let you use a debit card, typically inputting the long number across the middle of the card, the expiry date and 3 digit number of the back of the card. I hear some sites may even let you use PayPal. All very, very easy.


How can you pay 200 quid for headphones?


Thanks for link but no thanks, I just done a google check and it looks like a knock off site claiming to be in the Uk but its not.

Freewheel Model Zero 350W Electric Scooter £179.97 @ LaptopsDirect

I’ve just received it and it’s great! Top speed is 25kph on flat, hit 30kph down hill. I have a very steep hill near mine and was doing 12kph with just the electric. If you push along with it you can get up to 18kph. I done a 5km journey and it used 1 bar but went back to the full 5 bars just as I arrived home. Assume it’s the regen breaking. Very pleased with it. Will be using it on my commute to the gym and putting it in the locker. Would have purchased the Lidl one if it was easier to get, so this was the next easiest option. XD (y)


Exactly my thoughts...


Hmm.. I hope it has got a bit more range otherwise I paid £30 more for the same thing ;(


I agree, m365 on paper but the lidl pulls better up hills e.t.c honestly if you can charge often and don't need long journeys the lidl is better value imho (y)


So maybe 8 miles from the Lidl one is fairly realistic. I believe the M365 also has regenerative braking. It just seems i would have expected a longer range of this freewheel model given it has the same size battery as the M365, maybe its just a very conservative figure.

£629.10 at HP if you can get student discount (y)


Looks sweet, what speeds are the rams?


Yes, even on the CPU alone the new HP Pavilion is already using the new Ryzen 5 4600H. The Aspire on the other hand still has the 3000 series. For the screen, some people say the Aspire's is dim. I'd go for the HP even if it costs 50 more. Edit: Someone in the comments said you get over 4% cashback from Quidco too so it would drop even more.


you referring to the the HP Pavilion on for £649?? (out of stock) just found the hp pavilion on HP site, with the student discount its £629.10. So you believe this is better value? Thanks


I'm actually still waiting for it. I dont mind waiting though as the specs is mind blowing for the price. The laptop flew off the shelves pretty quickly. As long as the dim screen of the Aspire doesn't put you off, then that's fine! I personally prefer the HP Pavilion one than this though.

it's £259.97 now.


For £31 you can get a VESA adapter for this on amazon (or of course buy a different screen for £230 instead ...)


Been using one of these for the last 18 months. It's a good budget 4k monitor that does everything to a reasonable standard. Pluses: 28", freesync, good colour (no calib. needed), 4k60 on DP and HDMI in, also has DVI-D & VGA, 1ms GTG Minuses: No VESA, 30ms input lag (so not for FPS), TN (good luck finding an IPS panel at this price that does nothing badly) Recommended


Out of interest, has anyone had any luck buying from Laptops Direct? I ordered the monitor on Friday and received email confirmation that it would be delivered today. DPD tracking is stating they haven’t received the monitor and the customer service number for Laptops Direct isn’t working. Looking at some of the reviews, they don’t seem the most reliable or reputable group.....,rc_f:nav,rc_ludocids:3055080617311919801,rc_q:Buy%2520It%2520Direct,ru_q:Buy%2520It%2520Direct,trex_id:u4Mg5

SD855 and 5G at this price is definitely a bargain. Xiaomi also confirmed MIUI 12 update will be released for this in a couple of months.

Mines the same, Sometimes higher ;) On Three. I've not really benchmarked my phone /network but I've never had a problem with the speeds, It's been excellent...

Wife has a Huawei with a smaller screen like this but the memory is awful and it refuses to save apps onto the card (known issue apparently). Don't want a big screen one as we aren't careful with our mobiles and I went through a brief period with a large screen phone and smashed the screen twice within months. Any other thoughts for a 5" ish screen with 64gb+ for around this money before I take the plunge please?

I was in the same boat but I tried both and its the text, so much clearer that the tv, so 100% for work related and it can fit more on the screen. Would never look back now and the antiglare works wonders during the day!


its not 10 bit, it's frc


Great price for a decent brand in monitors. 32 inch, IPS, 4ms response time makes this a bargain for the price. No display port but you don't really need one at 60hz refresh. Only downside is the refresh rate but then you would be paying £150 more. Heat.


Ok great. Does anybody know what laptops direct are like on returns as I've read viewsonic have terrible quality control. In reviews folks returning 2 or 3 until they get a decent one.

Microsoft licensing for arm is very specific and tight and according to all reports they won’t be changing their licensing model to allow it to run (legally) on Apple arm based macs. As someone who bootcamps his macs i wont be rushing to arm macs and will stay with the intel models.


So come again, why this is cold and that is hot. Unlucky?! :D


To add to alg’s informative post above there is some further information regarding boot camp here


Since the above discussion, Apple are reported to have confirmed that Boot Camp will not be available for the ARM version of their Macs. When I mentioned it earlier, it was on the assumption that Windows might have been an option using an ARM build - see Surface, and the cut-down version for the Pi.


VMware is wonderful and I use it daily to run x86_64 OSs on x86_64 hardware. I'm sure it will be cool to run ARM OSs on Apple Silicon in Fusion when that is released. Apple already showed Linux ARM running in Parallels in the keynote. Unfortunately, that has absolutely nothing to do with the impossibility of running Windows x86_64 natively on Apple Silicon via Boot Camp.

I've had this phone about 18 months now and it's decent (came from iPhone). To be honest, there's very little separating phones these days, so as long as it has a good camera, snappy interface and fingerprint scanner you can't go too far wrong. Battery life for me is almost always a full day. If you use it a lot then it'll get you through until about 6pm, but you can pick up a USB C powerbank for about £20 that'll charge it back to full about 5-10 times, so if you know you're going to be out and about, using the GPS (maps) and taking loads of video then one of those are a must (for any phone). The one time I had an issue was with the camera, it was doing this weird shaking thing when I took a photo. I contacted Google and within about 10 minutes of being in their live chat they had arranged an exchange and a brand new looking (probably refurb, but you'd never know) arrived 3 days later. So really can't fault the customer service.

lovean777 haha, they finally did it, crisis is runnable


Because plenty of HEDT workloads still use single threaded performance at times (Abode software in particular) and there are cheaper options that give you similar MT performance without sacrificing the ST performance.


Because most people interested in HEDT wouldn’t buy a last gen, mid-range HEDT CPU even if it is cheap? 3960X isn’t a lot more money in the scheme of things and 3950X offers many HEDT performance benefits without the cost headaches.


Ye it's fine, but it's significantly worse than the likes of the Zen 2 3950X or even the Intel HEDT parts.


And the single thread performance of this would still be fine.

As per previous post, I'd recommend Ulefone Armor range too. Got an x5 recently for mountain biking . Build seems great, huge battery. Currently 90usd on Aliexpress. Also there's the smaller x7 Pro (prerelease) 80usd.


Sounds interesting. I don't see any refurbished phones on their website. Do you have a link you can share please?


Had similar with Doogee. Xiaomi or high St brands only for me.


All the Ulefone Armor range are good mate , tough rugged , waterproof , get them on Alixpress and probaby ebay , Amazon if you need it quicker . Designed for builders and outdoor enthusiasts , so they can take a beating ! I had the Armor 5s , cracking phone and used for mountain biking , hillwalking . Also Doogee do rugged phones and Blackview always pop up on rugged phone searches. Have a look and the wee man can throw his phone away to his heart content ! Good luck .

Agreed.. its 6 75Hz through HDMI & 60Hz via alternative output


There is definitely conflicting info regarding this. The specs in the owners manual say it is 75Hz through HDMI.


The product information section says refresh rate is 75Hz. The specification section immediately below lists it (twice) as 60Hz. This is in fact a 60Hz refresh rate monitor. It’s still pretty good for £80, but there is a Samsung 22 inch with IPS and 75Hz you can get from Amazon Spain for roughly the same price. LG website spec -

Doogee didn't honour their sale prices on AliExpress and I was out of pocket for nearly three weeks - they won't be getting any more money off me.


This or doogee x95


The first review I found for this phone slates it's performance, and they tested the version with 3GB/32GB (which is also the one sold by Argos and CPW). I'd expect the performance of this phone to be roughly equivalent to the original Nokia 5 as the spec is very similar but with a more modern version of that SoC. I should mention that I found the performance of the original 5 to be fine though so I'm tempted with this, especially as my 6.1 from Gearbest still hasn't arrived (and I really like Nokia phones!), though I don't need it. The only fly in the ointment is that I've found adoptable storage on Android One is very hit and miss on my other Nokias - usually not being offered at all, or not working correctly if it is, and with only 16GB storage that's something I'd need to have and work - can anyone confirm if it does?


If you have access to a capable PC, then an emulator such as Bluestacks may have been suitable as well.

2nd that, I bought some from Ebay a couple of weeks ago. Proper proper good fakes, even the serial was legit and I was able to register AppleCare. Became suss when they didn't show up under devices on my iPhone, even more suss when find my airpods didn't ping the case and even more suss when noise cancellation didn't seem to do much. Finally had proof when I reset the case the airpods lit up blue, real airpods don't light up blue! Opened a case with ebay immediately. You gotta be super careful now


Just so you know, I bought this as click and collect from John Lewis and they price matched. 2 year guarantee 👌


I found them cheaper if anyone is still interested :)


Yep. Got them next day.


They responded in 24 hours no didn’t give voucher code we have to buy it from JL with their price and respond to the price match email with the proof of purchase then they will pay you back the difference. You will be given 28 days for this.
