I want this phone but @ checkout it's in dollars will it convert to pounds when it shows up on my statement? thanx in advancev 8)


Yes the sim card tray has a second slot for either a microSD card OR as second sim card. So,provided you don't need 2 sim cards you can extend the memory. If you need to use 2 sim cards and a micro SD card then look at the larger 5.5" screen Note 5A - this has dual sim tray and a separate micro SD tray . There are very good deals on this phone on Gearbest at the moment - fulfilled from their EU warehouses ( so quick delivery and no customs fees ). I bought the Rose Gold colour for £71.94 delivered from France ( gw-6 warehouse )


Can you extend memory ( external) on this?


Remember to add the dispatch time on to the shipping time . It shows it may not dispatch until May 6th ( which usually means they are waiting for stock) , then shipping could take 12 days . So you could still be looking at a month before you receive it ( longer if customs stop it ).


It's my missus' phone. Don't know if you can use 2 of the same network sims but can't see why not. You can only use one sim for one feature ie. Only one sim will be used for internet while the other used for calls and SMS. It's easy to switch though, I've 2 sims in my own phone and was using my 200MB free 4G data data from 3. It ran out earlier so I switched to my 3G data from O2. I use my O2 for calls and texts but can't get 4G very well on the network. It should easily run Pokeman Go but my missus won't download to try for you, sorry!

Memory and ssd are upgradeable. The review posted above was pretty decent considering the price but personally think I would want the i5 version with 8gb ram.


I got one of these for my Father in Law last week and he's chuffed with it. I know you can wipe Win10 easily enough but there wasn't much guff preinstalled and the casing has a metal finish on the top and keyboard surround. There was an identical price version but without the backlit keyboard. We paid an extra fiver for 2 day delivery and placed the order at 4.30pm. It arrived via DPD at 9.45 am the next day.


True but you could only really describe usb c as very niche at this moment in time. Hdmi will handle 4k whilst ssd is still fine in usb 3. Is usb c worth a 100 premium which is ultimately what we are talking about since 6th gen and 7th gen cpu are largely identical


This is obviously older stock. Doubt you'll want to do anything with a faster hub or 4k TV with only 4GB ram. Windows 10 has become real bloatware and 8GB is what you really need nowadays to run it smoothly. This is good for general browsing and 1080p stuff. Heat for fullhd screen and backlit keyboard. Touchscreen and tent mode a bonus


Most new laptop s have them . Usb c let's you connect to external hubs at much faster speed . Displayport / HDMI 2.0 let you use 4k monitor or connect to TV in 4k

i7-7740X Socket 2066 Kaby Lake-X Turbo Speed 4.5 GHz

You are hilarious! I'm stating facts, not slinging mud as you just did. I know what I'm doing and have the qualifications to prove it. I'm not backing anything up? LOL. I've provided sources with benchmarks in post 6, all you've done is state I'm wrong and not proved otherwise. Keep trying. ;) Good offer from CEX though. I hadn't thought of that.


To be quite frank (like you are) you don't know what you're talking about. You haven't backed anything up, you've just looked for anything that can be taken out of context i.e. using a very specific workload as a benchmark for the overall performance difference of a whole generation of CPUs. It's like judging a bodybuilder in a competition based on their chest alone & not there whole body.If your own personal research is bad it's not my job to correct it for you, the ownace is on you. Side note: this cpu is £140 at cex https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=scpuinti77740x and still, in my opinion it's not worth it unless you have a compatible motherboard already.


got this from amazon at xmas for £179....motherboard cost me £299.....vr just flies now with my 1080ti....and games are real smooth at ultra high settings....im happy with it


Ok, best that you wait 10 years and pick one up then.


1) CPU from OcUK when they cleared out, forums only special offer IIRC. Aorus board from Scan. It was about £160 when I bought. They put the price up to £180+ by the time it hit this site a few days later. 2) Personally I don’t care about the LEDs. Higher end boards get better power delivery which aids in overclocking, USB 3.1, more M.2 slots, better audio etc. The rough equivalent features wise is the Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 which is ~£180. 3) 7820X probably, if the price drops. 8 core, 4.5Ghz Turbo stock. Lets see what the next refresh brings. ;) 4) Yeah, writing is on the wall for the consumer chip on the HEDT platform idea, but that doesn’t make it a bad chip if the price is attractive enough, which is what I said in my first post. You can still buy a 7700K and that’s dead-er than the 7740X as regards platform … and more expensive and slower.

Everyone has their own requirements, the fact is the Pixel is a great phone. There are enough reviews on the web to back this up. If in doubt go in to a Currys and try some devices out, then go and buy it from a proper retailer who adheres to customer laws... When seeking opinions on forums though, exclude the chaff by applying a troll filter. If someone is talking generic, unsubstantiated trash, they are trolling - and so should be ignored. Todays trolling has been brought to you by yoyo59.


Never handle it, follow the charging instructions to the letter. It will still die one day out of warranty.


So right. I got this Samsung a5 2017 suite me fine. I just use it for Facebook and pictures of kids but I did like look of pixel and thought it was good price here and then people saying how bad it is. I never know what they mean by stock android. Lol


You're mistaken (in my opinion and from my experience). I've tested the app on multiple devices - including a U11+ and whilst the app makes a significant improvement it does not make it a better camera than the Pixel 2 - which still exhibits better dynamic range due to its low level optimization and the fact that the app was built for the hardware. The page you linked to demonstrates that, to my eyes at least. Those photos also don't factor in focus speed, shot to shot time or the overall consistency of photos in a variety of scenes - such as backlit subjects. Portrait mode is also significantly better on the Pixel 2 as all the G Cam ports are just using the mode from the Pixel 2s selfie camera, so depth analysis and edge detection is inferior and it only works when a human subject is detected. Your opinion is your opinion though, so I respect your choice. Personally I think the Pixel 2 is a lovely device. I haven't tried a Pixel 2 XL. I'd still use a 1st gen Pixel quite happily as there is very little to complain about.


No difference even in low light photography because hardware very much same https://forum.xda-developers.com/u11/how-to/pixel-2-camera-vs-htc-u11-camera-google-t3775688

I'm considering getting the 17" model as the screen is superior.


Disregarding the keyboard layout if you're after a good gaming laptop at a decent price (sub £1000) then I highly recommend it. Recently purchased one on a different deal and everything I've thrown at it has been flawless. Witcher 3, 1080P, Ultra settings is as smooth as a baby's bum. Same with Arkham Knight, Shadow of Mordor and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Tried Witcher 3 at 4K and that was a bit of a slideshow (as expected), not tried the others yet. Did try F1 2012 at 4K and that got an FPS of 88 so it's certainly possible to play older games in 4K. A great gaming laptop IMO.


If you can swallow the US layout and warrenty issues, this is a cracking deal. Heat

To be honest I'm probably going to wait for RAM prices to (hopefully) drop. My i5 4460 is still ok for the time being, I do a lot of gaming on my PC so I'll probably go for another i5 later. I do think you were initially being a bit unfair to Ryzen though when you said: "To overclock the Ryzen, you *need* a 70 quid board. For the i5 8400, you can buy a 50 quid board and get a CPU that doesn't need to be OC'd to compete with the 1600." Now you're saying that the pricing is similar, which I would agree with.


I can't like the Aira site here, but they have one for 52. Are you looking at non Micro? If you require a full ATX board, then yes, the cheapest is 72. It's the same story for all AM4 sockets. If you refuse to get a micro ATX board, the cheapest is 74 after delivery. So, there really is nothing between the two brands right now in motherboard pricing. You have the same value options, mid range options, and expensive options for both. Have a look at the AM4 ones, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. Intel: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#sort=price&xcx=0&c=129,131,130,128 AMD: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#sort=price&xcx=0&s=33


Yeah, its just really hard to read someone's blatant untrues.


Cheapest is £72 which ends up being £80 delivered :( Would rather spend £90 on amazon for the GIGABYTE Z370P D3, then I'd have the choice of an upgrade for £10 more.


What do you expect, honestly? If you go into AMD threads and suggest that an Intel processor is better, of course people will argue with you. Especially the poster of the deal, who probably bought one just before they posted it.

I don't think anybody is stupid enough to buy a R5/R7 for the sole purpose of gaming, I hope not anyway. The 8 core chips are basically HEDT CPUs at a fraction of HEDT prices, that's their niche and that's who they're for.


Deary me this just goes on and on and on. Games may not always rely on clock speed going forward as they are underutilizing the CPUs with more cores. My 1700 utilisation is 30-40% when gaming so yes it can catch up. Just let it drop. You chose Intel. Congratulations on yr purchase.


Most games need good strong single core performance this is where Ryzen still falls short, so not a good choice in my opinion for gaming as it won't get any better & it can't catch up. Plus it's already behind Intel's last budget non K i5 8400 in single core performance so imagine where it will be in year or two when new cpu's are released. Best unbiased factual review and comparison from Hardware unboxed below tells you all you need to know.


Some people use PCs for things other than gaming. This is an endless debate that's just not worth having on every single deal posted for Ryzen CPUs. Gaming performance is perfectly decent. Multithreaded productivity performance is fantastic. Just leave it there and let people buy what they want. Games will utilize more threads going forward so it's a very good choice of CPU.


Hope nobody pre-orderd. It's twice the price of the 8400 which is on par or beating it in most games. 8400 at £150 & 8600K at £200 are still the best bargain gaming cpu's Looks like a decent cpu though with good multi thread performance but it's expensive currently at £329 rrp Tom's hardware benchmarks are in https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-7-2700x-review,5571-7.html

Let me start by saying that you are fundamentally correct, there is no "perfectly safe" HW/SW - only bugs and exploits that haven't been yet found. Having said that, there are issues and issues. Those "terrifying" AMDFlaws are exploits that required unsigned bios reflashes and/or full local admin right to the box to be triggered. Worrying about them is akin to worrying that a crim can copy your locks and enter in your home again whenever he wants, after you let them in unsupervised and gave them the master key. If you are genuinely concerned about them, do some extra research, be glad that a resolution path is in place and please don't let stock manipulators win by keep on spreading FUDs that have been extensively debunked. Anyway, there are degrees of unsafeness, and as far as it is known, amd has the "safest" products right now, which hardly means anything for most end users, as there are effective mitigation strategies around the meaningful exploits.


CTS labs LOL You can not be serious? The chip flaws that require you to have root/admin access to the pc... Or my favourite one, the one where you need a modded bios to exploit it. Yes they needed fixing. No it's normal to give a manufacturer 1 day notice of your findings. Spectre and meltdown were also found by an "outside source" and given a very advance notice before the findings were made public.


Yea AMD are definitely behind Nvidia at the moment in GPUs. I’ve always been quite surprised about that considering AMD are in every console for several years now! The reason I took your comment the wrong way was just because it sounded like you were saying AMD had been negligent in not releasing the info on their issues after only knowing about it 3 days.


I'm am definitely not anti AMD. I wanted to correct the person who thought Amd didn't have any security issues as this is spreading misinformation and isn't correct because they all have their own issues. I litterally put about 2 sentances and linked articles. I didn't bad mouth the chip and say anything about it being inferior to other brands. I'm in no way brand faithful. I buy whatever suits my needs most and switch between brands when needed. These ryzen chips are great value for money and do a lot of things better and for less money than the Intel chips do. I've switched between the red and blue team many times in the past until it got a bit one sided over the last 7 years or so. It's great now there's competition like you said. They just need to bring that to the gpu sector now to balance that market as that's definately in Nvidias favour.


Not really, you just came across as anti AMD. I agree they all have vulns. I just get miffed when people are not balanced which is how I interpreted your comments. Fact is we need competition in the market so the anti AMD brigade frustrates me.

Haha, nah I've never worked for CEX. I just think that dismissing them based upon some preconceived notions of quality is a mistake. This is HUKD after all, we're here to hunt down bargains without prejudice of store clientele, or personal hygiene (cheeky)


... and which store do you work in?? ;) it's a good point though. Their two year guarantee policy is pretty good to be fair.


I agree there's definitely a lack of diligence in their product identification and testing procedure (for certain item types), but this can be made to work to your advantage. (undervaluing due to misidentification) Moreover if it doesn't work, or isn't as advertised (their strict grading definitions work in your favour in this instance), simply send it back. There's absolutely no risk.

Intel i7-8700K Processor on Amazon for £292

Posted at £295.62 the other day, even lower now.

This CPU continues to really impress me. In my opinion anyone even considering a non K 8700 over the 8700K for the relatively small difference in price you would be regretting it down the line and you would actually be getting a lower price to performance ratio! It's 100% worth the extra few £££ to go or the K unlocked chip, pics below show the extra performance increase of all 6 cores at 5ghz.


Nope. I'm not making the mistake of buying a locked CPU and board again. Anyone buying a locked 8400 should at least buy an unlocked Z370 board so there is an upgrade path later on. The 8600k is the lowest I would consider at the moment. Otherwise the Ryzen 1600 makes more sense.


My friend is actually looking at the 8600k & 8400 he cant decide which one to go for. I said go for 8600k for the sake of £50 ish but I didn't know new boards were out, how much can you get a new budget board for?


Yeah I was really put off by all the debate and bad reviews mentioning heat and needing to de-lid etc nearly didn't buy one. 1.285 volts at 5ghz mid - high 70s temps under load seems okay + only get around 50 - 60s during gaming and there is quite a considerable performance increase at 5ghz over the stock or non K 8700 after overclocking in benchmarking results. I must have got lucky too! Can always disable the hyper threading for lower temps and higher clocks and run it as a higher binned 8600k too takes a couple of seconds in bios.


If you are looking for good value, the 8400 at sub 150, paired with one of the new budget motherboards would be a really good deal. 6 physical cores that turbo up well.

There's some rampant fanboysm on this community. I can't understand why people like the custodians of the absolute truths "X activity can only be done the way I say", "this product is useless [just because it wasn't made by a brand i like]", "you should spend your money the way I would, the only way, otherwise you're a fool!", or the ones that preach the value of a 20% saving for a 5% performance deficit in one thread, only to argue with everybody that the same performance is totally not worth the saving if a brand they don't like is involved, would spend their time on a DEALS website of all places.


The 2200G is equivalent in performance to a 6600K at stock speeds. The 6600K at launch did fine with GPUs like the GTX 980 and R9 390X, there's no way a 2200G would bottleneck a 1050Ti which is not even at GTX 970 performance. You will have to get to a GTX 1070/Vega 56 or GTX 1080/Vega 64 territory for this to become a bottleneck. Also the term bottleneck is subjective, if you are gaming on a 60Hz monitor or TV, this won't be a bottleneck. If you game on a 144Hz monitor then of course this will not cut it and neither will any other CPU available around this price.


I agree with all you said, don't get me wrong. But the Ryzen 2200G is poor in both cpu and gpu. That is why I do not see it in a ATX build. If on a low budget, I would suggest USED i5-4690k + GTX 770 or NEW i3-8100 + GTX 1050ti, or a mix of them. Both combos are way better fit for all purposes, rather than building upon Ryzen 2200G imo. Many people say 'buy now 2200G now, and upgrade gpu later'. While this is ok, you will end up with an expensive and mediocre PC in the end. Just a buy a decent cpu + gpu from the beginning, and save money later. Because anything higher than 1050ti on a Ryzen 2200G will be bottlenecked by this cpu. Not to mention you need expensive RAM to pair with the 2200G to be able to play games.


Buying a console does not replace a PC. General things like using Excel, email, video editing, online banking, even opening a PDF are not for consoles. If you could boot into windows on an Xbox then yes that would be a choice. Why if you are building a PC does it have to be about gaming? Its not what I can afford (I'm sure both you and I could afford a Titan if we wanted?) but we don't. I might have an hour or two on a rainy Sunday and want to play a retro game or maybe an hour on dota2. Yes I might have to play it at 720p or 900p. But it's smooth and enjoyable. As are many older games. This is not the case with HD630 graphics. I'm not sure on why you deem it necessary that because it's an APU you must have an ITX board and case. But if I built a non gaming pc with say a i3-8100 (the main competitor) it can go in a normal PC case? If we called the APU just an AMD CPU with better onboard graphics than Intel offers can we then put it in a normal PC case?


Sorry, but if you cannot afford to pay £100 on a gaming card, you should buy a console. APUs are not for gaming. 720p @ 30-40fps cannot be called gaming. Not in 2018. Maybe in 2003. APUs are great choices for HTPC with occasional playing casual or old games. Building a ATX tower around an APU is non sense.
