Can I use it with a Vodafone sim?
It's an Android One phone as well, so speedy updates from Google for 2 years.
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.
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.
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
re-googled and a ryzen build for way less (or similer price with a 1070) https://www.expertec.co.uk/ryzen-3-1200-1060-gaming-pc-windows-10-pro.html?utm_source=google_shopping&gclid=Cj0KCQjwuYTYBRDsARIsAJnrUXBVhVFlOPvoWp0LKEZBssNVSBn6cSbz1WHOmUcEhk9lV9erFFWVjwkaAuWVEALw_wcB or coffee lake https://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/category/nvidia-gaming-pc
where is the coffee lake+1060 deal you allude to?
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
4gb ram minimum...
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.
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!
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
Back down to £149
If you buy from Direct Laptops, through company account, they are sending Bluetooth Honour Ear Phones along with them
Says £159 now. :(
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.
Hi Andy, Is it Dual Sim as well
If you're after a pixel 2 XL then check out my deals history for one for £429
Thanks, will keep looking! :D Deal updated
If you're looking for an 2 xl you are Looking in the wrong place, this is a pixel 2.
@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.
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 :/
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.
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.
Using DP 1.2
Wouldn't touch LG again after the bootloop fiasco, lost 2 handsets which they wouldn't repair
No bootloop issues in G6 so far. It's a great phone and it will be soon updated to Android 8.
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.
Had this before I got a s9 plus great phone. I recommend the LG if your on a Budget
Had an LG Nexus 5x which suffered from bootloop, which was repaired under warranty, but took three weeks - hard to consider LG again.
where to get the pixel camera apk please?
Fair enough, makes sense to me.
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.
But you can get it for £269.97 at laptops.
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.
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. In the end I got a Lenovo Miix 320 with better spec (4GB RAM / 802.11AC wifi / USB3.1 type-C etc.. none of which this has) for less money £241. example https://www.uk.insight.com/en-gb/productinfo/laptops-and-notebooks/0007117110-00000001?gclid=CjwKCAjwlcXXBRBhEiwApfHGTSF82baNfxyIOREqVR2OwcXnGcmOJC57KU9SQwR3THfSPAtlNgUVihoCe3cQAvD_BwE
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'm the same as you. I have 2 x 5850's (separated into two machines) and am interested in getting another GPU. The longevity of these cards have been great!
A Vega64 for £290 is dead cheap.
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.
125pc better says this! http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti-vs-AMD-HD-5850/3649vsm7680 That said.i just bought a 2nd hand 7870 for 55 quid on ebay for my son ( same as 270x ) so you could also try a 7970 3gb for 90 quid or so too I like the way amd still supporting these cards with enhanced sync and gcn architecture used in ps4 so programmers will optimise for it fingers crossed
Didn't know Herman had a brother who also made chairs :/
Reviews look pretty good, https://www.techadvisor.co.uk/review/hardware/nitro-concepts-s300-gaming-chair-review-3666339/ Unsure about fabric, particularly as they say it's a magnet for cat hair and I've a pug who sheds everywhere. Tempted as it does seem to be getting compared to more expensive chairs.
Not wipe-clean, cold.
Trust me I sit in one of them sorts of chairs 12 hours a night there no where near as comfy as this maybe a Harman Miller but you won’t get one for them less then £200
I'm a gamer but there's plenty of chairs around for a lot less than this that are typically used for offices where people sit for 9-10 hours a day.
The Moto G5 is £30 cheaper. Why would you want this lower spec model? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/motorola-moto-g5-16gb-w-2gb-ram-single-sim-sim-free-lunar-grey-119-amazoncouk-2916835
Yeah I got that model it's an awesome phone.
I'd pick up last years model that has 3GB ram, (in most cases.) This is way too expensive for the specs.
True! But that battery!
Quad Core SD425 SOC, 720p screen. Its probably fine for somebody that needs a basic smartphone which lasts a long time between charges. I don't think it's worth £150 though when the Honor 9 Lite is the same price.
What's the customer service like, anyone dealt with any stores in manchester, my friend wants one but the car phone price is high. He prefers to buy from store
Apologies. I didn't realise Nokia do a 2 year warranty. JL show 2 years on the webpage so no benefit there. Apart from maybe customer service - but some will argue with that!
Does John Lewis do 3.year warranty as nokia provides 2 years as standard, I have this phone and checked on the warranty app
Also at John Lewis for £299.95 with the benefit of an extra year's warranty. You pays your money etc............
Free delivery at laptops direct over £50
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
Crap, pity though I think the specs still say while stocks last, so they should remove that as it's no longer viable, take a screenshot in case they suddenly remove it
Arguing with them now, they are saying it wasn't on my invoice so I don't get, I disagree...
Think it's 1 year, if buy from Acer directly it's 2 years. Shame this one it's out of stock. With Quidco 10% and 15% off = £765. Worth it for an i7 and 1050 ti card. https://uk-store.acer.com/aspire-7-notebook-a715-71g-black-7
Seems like another good option, there's so many deals atm I have no idea what one to go for. Do you know what Acer's warranty is like ? It's says 12 month click and collect. Also, as well as gaming I do some video edits so the two huge fans on the MSI along with the shift software should keep it running smootly
How about this one? Much cheaper at £599 with a 128GB SSD and it has backlit keyboard. https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.002-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-53HF_2283341.html
I've alrerady got a level 3 backpack thanks.
Looks very narrow in terms of depth. 13.3"-15" laptop and a few magazine and that looks about it....
This phone is awesone
i cancelled my order by reading some comments, phone has a lot of hardware issues... plus battery is not as good as number says... also too big and no weatherproof unfortunately... good price but... too many but...
No headphone jack :(
Just buy a case and fit it on the new phone! Works every time :)
"It's just a new case for my old phone"- sorted (lol)
Nope, its old 28nm slow tech. You can get the Maze Alpha 4G on amazon for £139. Better spec, same Helio P25 CPU. The ew Vernee X is a more major China brand so maybe that is better for similar.
Obviously 16AH suits the brand. And yes, not this.
Seriously - an 'Energiser' phone...? C'mon - who with any self-respect is gonna buy this...
A comparable phone with same screen res, newer android, almost the same cpu, 4000mAh battery for £110: http://s.aliexpress.com/QRJzQVZf
Worth noting this only supports FreeSync over DisplayPort, not HDMI
What's that called?
If you willing to spend an extra £100, samsung have a similar monitor but had QDOT, which improves colour exponentially. It's also got a slightly lower input delay.
bought once but came with a stuck pixel, so returned.. and now bought again, a very good price
