Fab bit of tech still, always amazed me how they crammed nearly 600ppi into this screen! worldcup
All HTC Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
Each to their own I charge my phone at work and therefore the quicker the better :)
Probably ideal for overnight bedside charging. Mine fast charges and then sits there at 100% for 5+ hours which can't be good for the battery. I'd rather it trickle charges for 5 hours and was just ready in time to get up in the morning.
Glad it's compatible with the S8 Plus and S8+
No fast charging booo :(
The official answer is no... However when I have purchased "A1 Pristine Condition" phones from Laptops Direct they have come with them, and in the original box. I think most the refurbished phones Laptops Direct are selling are phones returned, by people who have changed there minds and provided the accessories have not been opened, they will be included. But you should assume no and if they come it's a bonus.
I currently have HTC10. I'd say it's a good phone. The cameras both have ois so good for video. The battery life dropped dramatically after about 18 months to a point that it would turn itself off while reporting 45% and after only about 2 hrs of use. htc replaced the battery and it's now great again. It does get super-hot sometimes especially when quick charging... I think that might be what killed my battery. I'd recommend at this price but do a battery test in the first few days and return if capacity low. I use AccuBattery for this... Recommendation #2!
I had a Desire, One X, M7, M8, M9, 10 and U11 - not a single fault in 7 years or so. Just changed to P20 Pro as U12 looked a bit meh, but quite sad to have deserted HTC :(
90 days warranty is awful as HTC phones are not great from my experience, various issues after 90 days like: battery drain, screen issues, slow os and other issues. Good luck!
Eglobal central its dual sim not split screen.
Hmm and does this phone have split screen and dual apps with the dual sim ie two whatsapp apps?
I'm guessing one of the Chinese sites.
Where did u get the brand new one with dual sim?
Seriously I am curious aswell, WTF do you use anyways.
400 is not yesterday's tech you diiip shiiit
Agreed. also known for screen problems. I am hoping the smaller version will come down in price with the U12 on its way
Oh no, NOT. IN. THE. SLIGHTEST. Was just interested in the phone you currently use as you said you wouldn't pay + £400 for last year's Tech. You don't have to tell me, but this is a community, and people in the community are free to ask questions, and people are also free to not answer questions and be a bit shirty, that's your choice and I respect you for it. Good bye now.
Why does it matter what phone I’m using? Do you take it this personally to all cold remarks. Do you even know if I voted hot or cold?
One thing nexus phones weren't were "OTT prices" Pixels yes, nexus no!
Excellent phone ..i have kept it for some months..its slippery in hand though
One mans bloat is another mans features. I don't understand the big draw to pixel and previously nexus devices, OTT pricing, no expandable storage, stock android is dull. They may get updates 1st but Samsung and other oem's phones already have the new features without the update
This store kept it at £299.99 for a good amount of time, glad to see they dropped it a little.
Security updates better than Samsung's and lgs but Nokia, oneplus, pixel, takes the lead.
HTC U12+ was released today
I make that a touch under £17 a month if you compare to a 24 month contract which I think is pretty good going coupled with a decent sim only contract. Good spot.
Yes Sorry we can't validate your email. Please check this is the address you have registered previously with HTC or sign-up here
Hmm... It was very easy for me to do. Validate your email address you mean?
Signed up to the club but when clicking sign in, it doesn't validate
HTC 10 still going strong..will wait
Was really interested until i found out it doesn't have buttons (shock) , this things full of gimmicks.
No worries. I take stuff with a pinch of salt on here. Sometimes I just can't be bothered reading every comment in a thread so i end up skimming through or I'd spend all night on here. Sometimes you can have too much information.
And so you should (lol) sorry if I snapped, I've already had a telling off about it ha
Sorry,I stand corrected. I'll sit in the corner for an hour.
OK, let's just leave it there then shall we!
Still doesn't warrant a rude response
This or the Honor 9 lite?
£105.44 here now https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/xiaomi-mix-2-dual-sim-6gb-ram-64gb-4g-black-english-only.html?tduid=d2563e4c9844cf415e03399a87122f00#/product/19869
No it is a single SIM and a separate drawer for Micro SD.
Yes has the HTC Boom Sound ear phones in box, but with a USB-C connector on end. They are supposed to be very good, but not tried them myself. No USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is included, don't try buying a cheap adapter off eBay it will not work. You'll need to buy a genuine HTC one, they are about £19 on HTC's website, but sign up to HTC Club and get it for around £5-6. Apparently it contains a high quality DAX in the connector and hence why justify price. But I'll leave that for others to argue about, but works fine for me.
If you are playing a demanding game, yes... But for average browsing, news apps and music, it gets mildly warm in the hand. Charges 0-50% in around 30ish mins.
And you are a T**t but oh well.
That's a tough one. ... Depends where you buy it from.
You are sad.
Hmmm. This or mi mix 2?
Love my U11, will keep for till 2020. Don't see a need to upgrade anytime. Soon.
Halo is one of the best games I've ever played though
Yet to try a Vive but I love the Rift. Current VR tech certainly divides opinion :) I find the existing hardware incredibly inspirational and couldn't be more excited about future development and content. Totally appreciate that the resolution and FOV isn't quite there yet for some people, that's fair enough.
Haven't tried the vive or the rift, but I have a ps4 pro and psvr and will say the same sde is negligible must be due to the rgb sub pixels. The games look great resident evil 7 is a good example as is playroom vr and arkham vr. Other games ive played are more comparable to ps3 (graphically)but still great immersive experiences. Any how heat for the deal as is the best price atm :D :D
Im voting hot because this deal IS hot. Not because a mate of a girlfriends brother read somewhere that VR was overpriced/low resolution/whatever. Sounds like most of you have never experienced VR at all. If you have ever played games like Skyrim VR, Arizona Sunshine, LA Noire VR and many others you would know just how immersive VR is. Great deal. Well done OP.
I agree with others, when I tried VR (on a mate's custom built £1500 pc) I thought I was playing a Nintendo Wii game. Completely underwhelmed, and I had the impression that my mate was gutted that he'd spent so much to get such a poor experience ( but he didn't want to let on!).
Cons: - Small battery compared to overall size of the device - Dust- and fingerprint sensitive backside - Tiny navigation keys at the bottom
Praise the lord!
Not sure Xiaomi has better firmware support. And dont forget this one come with a god camera
yep - just too small.
Reliable company..hope this is made in TAIWAN..
Wrong, 12months warranty. backed up by my Credit Card issuer for a 'belt and braces' cover. Managed to get mine for around £190 after cashback from eglobal with Rakuten Super points worth £20 ;)
No warranty though.
Only paid £205 brand new 3 montha ago from eglobal.
https://www.devicespecifications.com/en/comparison/63e510454a HTC: better screen, better camera. Has gyro sensor Huawei: Android 8, probably cooler CPU and higher specs. Slightly bigger screen Neither support 800mhzLTE
This or the Honour 9 Lite?
No frequencies on the box, just says 4G LTE. No manual Part number is 99HAKZ011-00, which is from Vietnam If you look up the IMEI number it takes you to this page: http://www.imei.info/phonedatabase/96676-htc-bolt-2pyb2/ Which says no 800mhz
The official htc website states it includes b20 however people have reported the actual phone doesn't support it. Can anyone with the phone check the box or enclosed manual if it states any frequencies?
Does this really lack B20? I'm on Three and I really like the look of this phone, but I don't want it to become a paperweight whenever I leave the city
Arrived as expected on Tuesday, really pleased with the phone. Just trying to work out how to get notifications on the icons on the 2nd screen to let you know you have facebook messages. I get the notification when it comes through but if I miss that I would have thought you would see the facebook icon with a number on it relating to unread messages, as you do on the main screen. Does anyone know how to get that or if its even possible ? TIA UPDATE : Just got Android Update and notifications have now updated and are working perfectly now ;)
UPS Label created on 03/05, advised to allow 48hrs for tracking update once the package is moving in the UPS network so hopefully it'll arrive by the end of next week. 8) UPDATE : Delivery Due on Tuesday 8/5/18, by the end of the day ;) Happy.
I emailed them yesterday asking what is happening, they replied this morning saying there was a supplier delay same as above. They have now updated it though saying its ready to be shipped and I'll have the tracking number within 48 hours so hopefully it'll be all good. (y)
I ordered on the Friday 20th April and paid by C/C , however funds were initially authorised, then not taken ! I contacted them last week and they said they had a supplier delay but will expedite shipping when it gets despatched, which I was told would be this week at some point. Following despatch, I was told to allow 3-4 days for delivery.
Mine too, ordered last Thursday. (annoyed)
thanks for this
On last count... 15
How many times can you say HTC?
this is really only relevant for people with a vive already. It's so expensive that I can only see it being desirable to people with so much disposable income that spending £1000 on something that will have little value in a year is no big deal. I would love this and the pimax but my rift already lets me experience all VR titles about as good as my 1060 can handle. My VR headset upgrade will have to have a significant resolution upgrade and be wireless (and hopefully no sensors as well) this will not be affordable for a few years yet but when it is hopefully a 1160 or 1260 will be able to handle 8k+ VR resolutions without a problem.
"Where did you pic up your controllers etc from OP?" From my old Vive. "Now let's see how cold this gets!" I said this because I expected it, not because I think this is cold myself. I'm probably alone with this view, but I think high-end VR kit like this is the bargain of the century. We are incredibly fortunate (1 in billions or trillions) to be living in a time where technology like this is available. For Google Earth VR alone, not to mention space travel and all the other possibilities. The way I justify the spend is by simply comparing to a holiday. I'd rather have an optimal VR setup at home versus a family trip to Orlando for a couple of weeks. Personally I see more value in this, the most sophisticated VR in the market today, but each to their own. "it is dead on arrival, pimax 8k is the only real vr experience worth trying, this is nothing but a gimmick" I see Vive Pro as better overall. Yes, Pimax has more pixels and field of view, but I'm with Vive because: + Well known and recognised brand (HTC) and retailer (John Lewis) behind it. + Well respected partners support (Valve/Steam, Apple, Intel...) + Full retail product and not a prototype or even first gen product anymore + Apps/games optimised for it + Superior in other ways: comfort, size, weight, audio, cameras, phone integration, chaperone etc + Premium accessories including sophisticated Intel-based wireless option round the corner + Lots more points but this is enough Mine is due to arrive tomorrow, can post review if people are interested. Disclaimer: I got 5% discount and as a developer can claim VAT back so I'm paying closer to £666, plus after selling old Vive headset and Audio accessory should be paying even less... Still I think it's worth far more than £799 but let's find out tomorrow.
Because the manufacturer's still don't get that the majority of people who want to entertain that whole VR thing can't warrant £700+ on a headset which to get the best out of it requires another £700+ GTX1080TI GPU to properly run it at a level that allows you to experience the full benefits and cost of the damn thing. No point in getting a top of the range VR headset then running it on a RX480 or GTX1060 or something like that. Oculus got it right when they dropped the price of the Rift down to a more reasonable £399 with controllers and even lower price point with the new Rift GO which I think will be £200 which will suffice allot of users even if it ain't as technologically on par with the proper rift. I personally know 7 people who've got a RIFT and only one whos got a VIVE and I can confirm that they were all on them for around the first 3-5 weeks of owning them and all these months later none of them really use them because either the games are too short, theirs not enough triple A titles or they cant be assed with all the cables and setup Vs just jumping on your usual games, but ask any of them if they want to sell them as they never use them and they will all say NO as per usual.. (lol)
When you compare this headset with the Samsung Oddyssey (Same res and OLED display) which is currently available at $399 on Amazon.com (and doesn't need all the extras that the HTC does) then I think you probably have your answer.
Nothing comes close to the Touch controllers for the Rift. I say, try out a demo and compare. I did and although the rift can be a little difficult to set up, once you get a good 4x4m play area, it's by far the best experience (imo) £800 is also an insane price for just the headset.
any discount codes available for this?
thanks for this
I was quite happy with the U Ultra but I don't think the U11 is worth double the price, although it a very good all rounder.
I bought a U Ultra in January direct from HTC , good service arrived within 3 days.
Possibly, i just copied and pasted the page whilst logged in. But yes, it is fee to sign up-just email needed i think.
