Im scared to even order anything for few quid from this company. They should be called hot mess express cause everytime I try its a confusing disaster. I cant imagine buying something this expensive from them. I just ordered remote control cause it was so cheap couple of quid. order/payment seemingly accepted. email confirming. but on teh actual ali acct I see something about order closed. no emails. no refund. now I have no clue where it stands. thank god its not for this product.
China was in the eu? news to me.
Great phone, lousy government scamming us out of EU citizenship to rob us blind for no discernible benefit. Oh the days when we could have cheaper international electronics too
Close to my biting point, I do not need this phone but just fancy it. Any idea if the black shark or legion are better

Your 💯% correct about Asus not helping out regarding screen issues , I would never buy an Asus product due to bad aftercare
I had ROG2 and the Google pay didn't work because of the ROM and fingerprint security being 2 different versions. Had to root and do it myself to be able to use NFC payments. Most likely same issue with this one.
You have to download the latest version of the global rom on to the phone and reboot it. When it comes back on it detects the update and asks you if you would like to install. I bought one from Wonda mobile at the end of last year. Be aware that Asus do not want to know about the phone if you have any issues with it. I cracked the screen on my phone and had to send it back to Wonda mobile (Hong Kong) and they sent it back to Asus on my behalf.
So what's the process to update the software without OTA support?

Yeah I always use PayPal whenever I can because if all else fails PayPal are always there
Nice price, but once this lot have your cash your on your own, as for import duties included...well i'd be careful, cos if you get stung for them you have zero comeback on Wonda, they will ignore you...happened before, will again... i wouldn't trust any imports that claim to cover all import duties. Pay with PP and if you get caught then cancel the sale / return it for a refund, heat for the price

Has the 5 got VoLTE/VoWiFi ? Or is it the same as the 3 and Asus couldn't care less about the UK mobile networks ?
ROG 3 might have a grainy bright black crushing screen, but the ROG 5 is still an unoptimised mess. I still go back to my rog 3 since the UI and haptics are just faster and better, Idk why they did it but the haptics in the 5 feel worse, as well as the vibration options for notifications. Picture in picture is laggy too. I've updated both to most recent firmware and can say get the ROG3 if you want to test out grainy 160Hz and dont need a headphone jack. Also the 5 gets superhot and takes a while to cool.
According to this phone its getting good updates 8 so far since release https://rog.asus.com/phones/rog-phone-5-model/helpdesk_bios
Its gonna be rare if it fails on you but i guess if you wanna save some bucks order from AliExpress but not sure on warrenty.

To your last part - yes, you can sell it as new. Go on eBay - items get listed as Like New, which appears as "New - other" when searching for games. Per eBay's definition, this is a game that has been taken out of its shrink wrap and nothing else. So per the definition of a massive marketplace website; yes, you can sell it a specific category of "New". Not that this really matters anyway. The argument at hand is a bit daft, really. The idea that £550 is a ridiculous price to pay simply because it's has been opened is...well, a bit silly. The only difference will be that it's opened. It's hardly "used" in the sense that the battery won't be depleted, it won't be grubby, or a clearly used phone. And if it was, I'm sure this retailer would have a bad rep.
No I havent experienced that and if they tried that with me I would not take it and demand sealed one, not my problem people are naive And I can tell you what happened in your case, some brainiac working in Game took the disk out, played it and then sold it to someone like you I will explain it to you in the simpliest way: Can you resell it as new? No you cannot ergo it is Used.
The games haven't been used though, so your explanation of why they're "used" makes absolutely no sense. GAME don't sell all games factory sealed, it's a common practice for them to keep the discs separately round the back. In all your years you have never experienced this? Somebody else back me up to say that this is a thing that does happen.
Most people think like me, and you must to have buying USED games from Game, all new one I bought were factory sealed

Watched some reviews. It seems the sound quality is not bad and the mic is good. I’d say if you care about mic, this might be a choice. Otherwise if you do travel a lot, I would recommend Bose qc20 for your laptop.
Any good? Wouldn’t mind a set of discreet headphones for travelling with my laptop

It looks like they've sold out now as I checked it about 2 hours or so ago and there were still 4 in stock they've all gone now by the looks of it
It has expired mate that item is not available for that price. I also made clear the link I posted was an alternative.
The deal on that one I posted is still active however the one that you've posted is a different model of that brand of router I was thinking about getting this router myself to replace my Netgear Nighthawk 500 that I bought about 2 years ago but don't know whether it's worth the upgrade
Why cold? I believe the deal has expired now but at time of posting this was a very good price. I toyed with the idea of this one a while back but went for the RT-AC86U similar functionality with the ability to add custom firmware (mine is running on Merlin firmware and is extremely reliable along with lots of customisation options). Similar price and payments can be spread if required https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-RT-AC86U-AiProtection-Accelerator-Aggregation/dp/B075WFL15D/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-p13n1_0?cv_ct_cx=ac86u&dchild=1&keywords=ac86u&pd_rd_i=B075WFL15D&pd_rd_r=52d74fe3-e730-42b9-be9d-4acc6243d626&pd_rd_w=Tp1qQ&pd_rd_wg=aL8U8&pf_rd_p=e4509867-85a3-4c11-aa84-8c4e590451b7&pf_rd_r=461BY902HFMPV6PD7HHB&psc=1&qid=1608561064&sprefix=Ac86&sr=1-1-82924ca5-d5c8-45d1-a40c-360835499ae5

That sucks! Get in contact with Amazon I'm sure they will sort it quickly. I wouldn't give up. Mine arrived today and although the box had been opened and I could tell someone had used it for a while as the underneath was dirty and had finger prints all over it. However I now get 98mbps over WiFi instead of the 10mbps from the Virgin media Hub! I'm well chuffed. Thanks for recommending it @Grumpyoldhector
My order arrived yesterday in a plain cardboard box without manuals or paperwork and only 2 aerials - supposed to have 3!! I would not class what I received as used very good. Typical.
I'm on virgin as well and had the same problem. I used bt whole home to solve the issue now I get 100mbs on the WiFi anywhere in the house. So try a mesh network is this don't work
Thanks @Grumpyoldhector!!! I've just made a purchase. I'm fed up of getting 5mbps through my Virgin Media WiFi. My Powerline connection gives me 10mbps, so hopefully this will get somewhere nearer to the 100mbps I get directly out of the back of the Virgin Media router. Worth a try. Plan D is to drill holes in walls and send an ethernet cable out the house and back in. Alternatively, I just grow up and stop playing Fortnite. (lol) (lol)
You can get RT-AC86U Wi-Fi Ac2900 for £85 reduced from £125 pretty much the same as ROG version but no lights but you can "upgrade" by loading Merlin firmware. Remember that Discount shows at checkout.
