Such a shame HTC have lost their way so much the past couple of years. Their phones have so much potential but they just never get it quite right any more :(


Thanks i will keep a look out for these, or a Sony XZ


S9 or HTC U11 U12 plus is not much different to u11 or u11 plus and you can have them for less than £200 Camera on these is very much close to pixel 2/3


Great phone, still overpriced

electriQ 32" IPS 4K UHD Monitor for £260 @ Laptops Direct
Found 18th JanFound 18th Jan
Price looks ok when someone is on a budget. Resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160) Aspect ratio: 16:9 Contrast ratio: 3000:1 Refresh rate: 60Hz Response time: 12MS Power consumption: … Read more

It's an IPS panel. I believe the response time is listed as 12ms but ghosting is minimal at worst and the colour and viewing angles are very good. Of course who knows how long it will last, but it's not bad for the price as a 2nd or 3rd monitor. It does frequently drop to this price or £255 though. It it drops under £230 I'll be buying another. A TV would no doubt be better and cheaper for a console though.


I imagine this will be a TN panel (can't see it on the spec) with a slow response time of 12ms. So expect a bit of ghosting and poor viewing angles. It is still a 4k 32" for £260 so as the OP said, it's a budget / entry level. If buying for a game console, you may be better off getting one of the entry level TV's LG's or similar. I got a 4k 43" IPS screen so the response time is pretty good with great colours and lack of ghosting - I got that for £250 but seen it floating under £300 before. The bigger size might not be ideal of course.

Appreciate all the comments. I realise this is the best price for this processor as it's been lower but prices from 6 months ago don't help me much if I need to build a PC today lol


i was wondering what had happened to my bad PC luck, looks like you got it (highfive)


A few months ago this was £175 on Amazon, best deal ever


Yes every thing up to date, random machine crashes especially games. Thought it was the gpu so bought new, kept happening, change MB updated kept happening, even tried swooping ram, hard disk and power supply still happens. When all else is removed has to be the cpu, not over clocked and tempts very low. Intel never give me an issue on my fifth gaming pc only happened with ryzen.


hi "Ryzen is fast but errors alot" what do you mean by this? i know first gen ryzen had teething problems with memory , but they ironed those out eventually, have you updated you're motherbourd with the latest bios?

It was okay but nothing to write home about. If I was at work and then went out in the evening, then I'd have to recharge it in the afternoon to ensure it lasted the day.


How was the HTC battery life?


Thanks @Mrswitch - you too :)


Lol, we are all different, and some of those really annoy me, but give me this over stock and emui any day :D Have a good evening.


Thanks for getting back to us @Mrswitch (y) To be honest I have taken your favourite aspects of miui for granted - my favourite miui features are the built in (and usable!) data manager/counter, the easy to use cleaner app, built in virus protection (and you can choose from different, decent virus definitions) and there are a lot of settings options. But... The Google assistant frequently forgets my default region, so I get an American voice instead of the English one, if it works at all. The permissions and app settings are ridiculous: I want apps to work how they are intended, not have to fiddle about with settings in miui, which still don't fix all of the problems. Memory management/battery management is both a blessing and a curse. Nova launcher skins the home screen, but I find miui ugly in the rest of the OS (and for some reason Nova launcher keeps crashing). The miui clock app is brilliant for setting and deactivating alarms, etc, but why on earth don't Xiaomi fix the bug in every clock widget that gives the upcoming alarm time as "00:00"? Before this turns into a TL;DR rant, I'll sign off ;)

Open Box - GRADE A1 - IPhone XR Blue 6.1" 64GB 4G Unlocked & SIM Free £664.06 @ Laptops Direct

Thanks for this - am going to investigate further,,,,,could be a great shout :)


O2 are doing the XR for £566 on the refresh tariff at the moment so could work out cheaper if you pay the device off straight away


SD 600 range will run smooth for 2-3 years minimum. You can also look at Pocophone, it has 845 SOC which is latest offering, might give little longer, but it's not in Android one program, Xiaomi however has promised for regular updates though. Screen - It will matter once you see both devices in real. I have seen XR today in Apple store, it's screen reminds me of iPhone 4,5; much lower quality than my Pocophone.


Not too fussed about the screen as the LCD in the iPhone 7 looks as good as the Amoled in a Galaxy S7 to me. I’ve still got a 42” full HD TV that looks great, never mind a small phone screen lol. I’m more worried about the processor becoming dated.


SD 600 series is medium range chips in Android system. They are excellent for daily work. I had experienced this series and with Android one optimization, they work smooth. If iPhone XR and Nokia 6.1 Plus are placed together, it will be hard to differentiate between speed in daily jobs. Rather Nokia 6.1 Plus screen will look much better as it's full HD Plus rather than 720p in iPhone XR.

No it’s definitely not the jump again, but it’s smoother, and input lag in reduced and I can get 140-240+ FPS in most games with the Vega 64. For me, at 25”, 1080p is fine as I sit a few feet away. And it’s the Dell Alienware 2518 so it’s a great panel


How does FPS gaming compare between 144 and 240hz in your experience? I would assume the difference isn’t as noticeable as going from 60 to 144.


They cancelled my son's order for a 240hz monitor the day before it was due for delivery just after New Year. He'd waited patiently for three weeks and so missed all the other Xmas deals as a result. Just be aware.


For this kind of money I'd be looking for a monitor that's compatible (or at least likely to be) with the new Nvidia driver for Freesync. Edit: it does 30-144hz via DisplayPort so should be good.


Dunno mate sorry

Hi Adam. I wish I could answer that question. Unfortunately my PCs only have a single output so I can't test it. I can't find anything on the internet regarding this question either, so it might be one for LG's customer support. Sorry I can't help.


Hi Mad ! I have 1pc/ 2 hdmi /to 2 screens & using windows screen extender gives me 2 seperate full screens (eg word wont fully display if you just size 2 docs on 1 screen). Do you think if i connect the 2 hdmis to an ultrawide and use Lgs split screen pbp (picbypic) feature it will work ok? ( I understand LG has its own screen crossing mouse and file software) Thanks.......................... ps everyone this was on this site / ebuyer a short time ago £169.95 but it seems still a great deal. :D


Bought this earlier in the month when Ebuyer had it on sale. It's a very nice monitor for the price would recomend.

The search bar hasn't worked properly for about 10 years so not your fault. Wish the Devs would either fix it or just remove it and we'll use Google search which does a much better job.


Even present Samsung range should be avoided, price vs value ratio is very low. If you are specific for Samsung brand, you can look at their M series coming this month. Best is to look for one of Xiaomi, Honorary, Nokia phones. Specific to this iPhone, it's almost an insult for Apple users to sell this at such a high price. I am no one to advise, but if I were you, I will buy her a 150-200£'s Xiaomi and remaining money can be spent on something more meaningful like education or a driving lesson or something else. Sorry for unwanted advice.


Get her an Iphone 7/8 (Plus) Does she really need the latest one ?


Is this that sub par iPhone


Yes what's wrong with that. There's worse things I could buy a 2 year old.

Likewise. Havent heard of PB selling computers for what 10-20 years. I dont understand how this can be refurbished either. Did anyone ever buy one? Maybe they found it in the attic or covered in dust behind some other stock. It is almost a collectors item.


Yes that's a fair point


Cold it’s a Packard smell


Maybe for thin client, no idea why it would up in a consumer PC though. :{


It is amazing the computers your see in the electronics skip at my local, Of course your not allowed to take anything, But some of the stuff is not what I would say looked old.

Honor 10 lite Blue

It’s not really sensible to assume what is on a Huawei model will be on a similar Honor model, they don’t give them all the same specs so as not to steal too many sales from the Huawei which is usually a bit more expensive. ;)


Agreed, wires crossed :( hopefully the lack of 5Ghz doesn't become a problem in the future


An earlier comment had a screenshot and link to Honor site showing that the Honor 10 Lite only supports 2.4Ghz. The person you were asking questions to, owns a Huawei P Smart 2019 which they stated in a prior comment. You appear to have been asking about Honor 10 Lite, whereas they were answering about their Huawei P Smart 2019.


Correct. The honor. It only supports 2.4Ghz


I presume you're talking about the honor not the Huawei?

Mine's been spot on for the last 11 months!


The long and short of it is my opinion is that’s it’s a bad TV, even at this price. I wouldn’t recommend it as the hassle setting it up and problems I’ve had with it just aren’t worth it. I’d much rather put my money towards a more expensive decent TV than this TV.


But fortunately for you you could run the PS4 in HDR mode adjust the settings and then turn off the PS4 HDR which is known to be bad. I would imagine most people spending close to £400 on a TV will have an external HDR input of some kind.


Yes but you have hdr presets as well as sdr presets, so unless you have a HDR input, not the built in apps, you can’t adjust those presets.


That’s different to what you posted. “HDR content you cant adjust the picture just select a few presets” Once you adjust a preset it will save them settings. I can’t remember if it saves them if you change between defaults but I just matched the linked settings from for HDR and normal viewing and I’m very satisfied.

It's a port of the camera app APK from pixel devices. It basically uses Google algorithms to process the pictures and generally makes all pictures look well as potentially adding features. Someone has to develop it for each device and often you'll fine multiple versions from different developers. Best place to go generally is the XDA developers forums. Not sure if anyone's developed it yet though tbh


Whats gcam ? Is it another camera app which open camera?


Sorry to say I had to return mine. There is no such thing as a 'gaming phone', rather a phone that is made with a few tweaks that may assist in performance such as liquid cooling. I returned due to the camera not being up to par. Pocophone runs all games on high settings smoothly, and has a better camera that can be improved by installing gcam. I would go for pocophone over this.


Posted the 64gb a month or so ago.

i ordered grade C before came with scratches and dents on the frame, screen was perfect, battery life is excellent, i would say there is zero chance to receive a grade phone C in mint condition


Cracking deal is that mate. This Pixel 2 XL deal would be good if it was Grade A or B, as Grade C is a gamble. I got the Pixel 2 XL last April for like £349 Grade B from Appliances Direct and came like new. The phone was £799 at the time. Anyhow, it's a solid phone and the rear single camera never ceases to amaze me.


And budget. Here is a deal, hence gone hot. Unlike this deal which isn't so hot.


It's all down to personal preference.
