It's an Android One phone as well, so speedy updates from Google for 2 years.

Mrswitch

So basically all the things that mean anything are different, and you class that as basically the same? Water resistant /bigger screen/wireless charging/more storage/android one/6gb ram/better camera/slimmer bezels Basically the only thing the same is the processor.

icstm

I'm not sure what people are saying. This is the thinnest smallest phone you can get with decent specs. The only thing close is the XZ2 Compact, but that is way thicker with a smaller screen/body ratio. I think this is a great deal. 835 vs845 is the smallest real world jump on any app speed test I have seen on YouTube.

YOG

Basically the same as the 2017 Nokia 8, but IP67 dust/water resistant, Qi wireless charging, 5.5 instead of 5.3 screen. BUT, only 128 GB internal, as opposed to the Nokia 8 64 or 128 GB which can have up to 256 GB added in the MicroSD card slot. Unless you must have IP67 dust/water resistance and Qi wireless charging, I would go for the Nokia 8 64 GB from John Lewis for £299 95 with a 2 year guarantee.

Yep, pixel 2 XL

adamspencer95

where is the coffee lake+1060 deal you allude to?

r200ti

just did a quick google and the first hit i see you can get a coffee lake prebuild with a 1060 for this money. imo anything that isnt 8th gen or Ryzen isnt worth considering unless its silly cheap. No kaby lake chip and mobo combo is worth more than £120 of the price. a 7400 is probably only worth having if it came free with a cooler. I feel sorry for retailers stuck with Stock of kabylake, but like any form of retailing they need to suck it up and give them the 'discontinued' price tickets they need.

Cold, bought the same with the n3160 and 4gb ram, 1080p IPS for some price from same company and its only good for Google docs and YouTube that's it. Even the addition of the app store is a poor implementation and the apps barely work. Happily sold it for £180 after paying £150 though lol

longbowassassin

4gb ram minimum...

ibblackberry1

That's all true, people always like a good Chromebook deal, stick up a couple of deals in the £150-180 range for the community. At this deals price point and with the restrictions mentions it's fine.

SLR84

I have this and its more than adequate for browsing and DOES run android apps. Yes the screen isn't great as it isn't HD but for internet browsing i don't find it matters and as somebody who gets migraines from bright lights i love how dull the screen goes and that it isn't reflective.5 The only issues i've had were news websites that try to load videos constantly would bog it down, i added an extension to the browser which blocks this and it run smoothly on all websites now. I much prefer this to my Windows laptop that has a decent spec!

sam_of_london

Less ram always creates problems. Earlier ram on all laptops could be upgraded. But chomebooks come with everything soldered making them obsolete very fast. Screen is not even full HD like most new chromebooks

sparvathina

If you buy from Direct Laptops, through company account, they are sending Bluetooth Honour Ear Phones along with them

cesarezp

Says £159 now. :(

Andy.Vanek

Yes it is. There is only 1 version available in Europe. It has a double sim tray, but one of them can be used for microSD card instead. So either you have 2 sim cards or 1 sim and 1 microSD. So all the shops should be selling the same phone, even though there descriptions could look a bit different - unless they are selling Chinese gray import, which I doubt.

@AceyUK hmm, super strange, I can only seem to get mine to output a max of 144Hz at 1080p. I'd say its definitely a graphical limitation then (still running a GTX660, although after researching around people have said it can output 240Hz), I'm waiting to upgrade but just waiting for the prices to drop a little more first. Thanks for the help and the screenshot :) Much appreciated.

AceyUK

Not a dumb question, messed with me too! it IS in the nvidia settings, I missed it a few times :| Although even after that, in my actual monitor settings (not nvidia), it thinks its 120hz, but its definitely at 240hz. it recognizes that its 240hz now :/

Haborym

I've managed to create a custom profile 1920x1080 @ 144Hz but for some reason it won't up to 240Hz. Might just be a graphics card limitation possibly.

arnold.rimmer

right click desktop then display settings then click display adapter properties and under monitor tab should have option to select the 240hz, thats how i do it anyway.

Wouldn't touch LG again after the bootloop fiasco, lost 2 handsets which they wouldn't repair

AndriiUA

No bootloop issues in G6 so far. It's a great phone and it will be soon updated to Android 8.

hcc27

Yes this is a peculiar LG thing. Has happened on my G2 and more recently, on an old LG G-pad 8.3. Resetting sometimes solves the problem for a while but it always reappears. I believe LG paid out on a class action related to this issue in the US. The G6 is a fantastic phone, but I just don't want to throw 250 notes given the bootloop issue. Heated.

coventgamer

Had this before I got a s9 plus great phone. I recommend the LG if your on a Budget

Holdsworth

Had an LG Nexus 5x which suffered from bootloop, which was repaired under warranty, but took three weeks - hard to consider LG again.

Mrswitch

Fair enough, makes sense to me.

lyndongray

Yes, but I'd rather buy it from John Lewis and have the ability to take it back to store if I didn't like it or free postage back to them. Laptops direct, you have to pay to send it back to them which almost negates the £10 your saving. Plus if it goes wrong I can take it back to any John Lewis store. There are advantages.

Just 2 secs to open Chromium on a RaspberryPi in 1Gb. That's £30. I suppose if you stuck a Linux distro on this Acer then it could become useful. But you wouldn't get your Windows Tax back. Pity no government has the guts to force unbundling into the PC market to give the punter a realistic choice.

klingonempire

Had one and returned it. These windows tables are sloooooow. But 2GB is no where near enough for a windows tablet. Yeah you can run office, but everything struggles. Took even 10 seconds to open Chrome.

Watch out for DVi-D connections, I had DVi-I on my old card. My screen being VGA, I did not find a VGA / DVI-D adapter. So I opted for HDMI! the card is excellent !! she does not heat. It is programmed by default to activate the vantillo at 70 ° (modifiable)

I got my Vega 64 just under £290.. minus VAT .. Yes I do pay for electricity and it cost just under £90. So that's £390 MAX.. .. Etherium is current $800'ish. So my quoted time frame is correct.

Oh the phone is great, 2nd one I've bought for the family, but I would have bought it from Argos if it wasn't for the headphones. Their argument is we can't see it on your invoice, I just want them to admit it's not in stock, I won't be defeated easily ;-)

rotten luck, yes, I've just checked and not seeing it also I had been thinking about buying a second one to replace my work, but without the free headphones I'm not going to Though to be honest, the phone is worth the £95, getting nearly 2 days out of it :D

Nothing on their website about it now - I've had three replies and they keep saying "It's not on your invoice so we can't send it" and ignoring my questions about is it in stock now etc
