I have one of these monitors and although set to 4k, I usually run Windows at 150% scaling as it feels about right. Text is readable at native but feels very small; so I think that's pretty fair (y) I game occasionally on it - but if I was using it mainly for that, I agree with the other comments that QHD and higher Hz is a better setup. That being said, it does work with PS4 fine too (haven't got around to trying my ps5 on it).
Don't worry, wasn't pointing the finger or anything. I'm certainly no expert on these things so I can be proved wrong no probs haha and was just my feel. I tend to scale up a bit in windows I think, maybe 125%. But windows is my work laptop. It barely copes with powering this and a 1080p monitor along side it tbh. In one config I couldn't get it to output above 30hrtz iirc. As I say, layman here would recommend at this price, depending of course on use case. Eg A gamer would of course be better with a higher refresh rate at 1440p etc
I was just repeating common opinion :o). Can you still read windows text at max res?
Not sure if 100% agree, as you tend to be close to a monitor unlike a TV so can be noticeable. I have this and it's a great monitor. The difference between 32 to 28 (I dropped down in size) makes a difference for people not wanting a large desk setup or the monitor taking up the focus of a room
It's not a lower model, its a 2021 model whereas this a 2020 one, just because its a A5X doesnt mean its worse than a A7X series phone It has a 720g which is basically identical to this model OIS + better main sensor, Newer GW3, this uses a GW1 120HZ The A52 is a better overall phone and the 5g variant has a faster SOC
Why da fok is a lower model better?
A52 is cheaper and better , much better camera setup, 120hz, Can be had on amazon spain for under £300, a52 5g is normally found also similar price

If the new OLEDs are worse than the cx or bx and cost materially more then yes, I suppose they are. If you live in a world where price doesn't come into the equation then good luck to you.
Not at all. I use it to describe the q60 and I've used it to describe the tu8500....... If you can find me using it any where else then good luck to you....... But feel free to keep having snarky little digs at me as it is the last resort to a flawed argument. I've explained several times why I think it is mediocre, but you cannot tell me why it should be considered a good TV at £820.......perhaps you will now, but I suspect you'll resort to more petty barbs and snide rhetoric.
It’s obviously one of Andy’s favourite words and he uses it all the time. Don’t think I have ever used the word until today and I have a very wide vocabulary ;)

Here we go again... More "sage tech BS" along the lines of: "You don't need more than quad core for gaming." "You don't need more than 8GB ram for gaming." "Your eyes can only see up to 30fps." How about people stop crapping on people who want to buy things they like. It has nothing to do with you whatsoever. The whole point of building, or owning, a PC is to a) get what you want as the owner and b) buying things that will have long term gains and often get faster over time up to a point. I'll just leave these here: DirectStorage is coming to PC | DirectX Developer Blog & Microsoft DirectStorage for Windows works on PCIe 3.0 SSDs
these will really take off in game performance once DirectStorage API is properly implemented - and it's coming in 2021 according to some roadmaps Consoles were the first out of the gate to properly implement, but as ever PC will always be the fastest (albeit at a higher cost)
Very fast drive, was using them, but had a couple go bad on me. Also shame about the 600TBW on the 1TB drive, keeps it back as a £200ish drive imo? Not really a 'Pro' drive as the name suggests and for home users, it is overkill for the price point. As ever with Sammy, it'll come down to it's genuine MSRP after a few months, so maybe then...
wrong. current games maybe just 1-2 seconds faster loading vs a 3500 rated NVME drive but future games will be more optimised for these faster drives. again lime I said above,there is a reason new consoles (specially PS5) are using these expensive drives and not the chepaer slower ones..despite needing to save production cost as much as possible.they could simply put a SSD drive 1/4 of the price if speed difference wasn't important.

Great deal but a week too late for me, I went for the S20FE5G on EE 25GB/month at £696 total. I think the extra £43 I'll pay over 2 years is worth the better 5G coverage in my area with EE. Three unrivalled for traveling however
Had to find something as SIM only contract was coming to an end and upgrade "offer" was £41/month!
Thanks for sharing, @jofromk - nice find and first deal :)
I agree software is integral to the experience, my phone has 12GB RAM and there's a ROG phone now with 18GB. That RAM is mostly going unused. I average about 6GB RAM usage on my phone. With regard to Android it's made some relevant and important improvements over the years, there's perhaps too many to list. What I do agree with is that if you look at Apple for example they do have a 5+ years support for their phones with major OS and security updates. The best you'll get on Android is 3 years, so I agree support could be longer. The main issue with Android is the diversity of hardware which makes consistent upgrades over all hardware challenging. I think the real debate is not that Android had stagnated, it hasn't, it's that the software support is lacking on Android. Nvidia support their Android hardware the best. My 2015 Shield TV still gets updates, it doesn't get all the features of the latest Shield TV but still impressive support, they were the same with the Shield tablets they once produced.
Don't think it's the ONLy Samsung phone available in UK with SD processor S10 lite & A90 both have (but the older flagship)
I bought this TV from John Lewis for £899 after getting it price matched down from it's original £999. It's a beautiful set and I'm really pleased with it's performance. Another thing, it's amazing how quickly you get use to the size. It looked huge at first but now I don't even think about it.
Yeah I'm always a bit suspicious about these "new" phones from ebay sellers. I'm sure it'll work fine, and is new as described, but has probably just been drop-shipped directly from Hong Kong, and hence no warranty to speak of beyond what the eBay seller themselves offer. You may as well just buy it from wondamobile yourself if you don't care about it being a UK model, with a UK warranty, and save a bit of money by cutting out the middleman
do you know how long is the warranty?

The battery dies too quickly. If I don't get a chance to charge my phone at work, my battery would be dead before the end of my shift. I only do so while at work though, but that's 5 days out if a 7 day week (fierce) 8 to 9 hours out of each day...
This is down to roughly £870 now if you use a fee free card. Actually contacted WowCamera to cancel my original order today and try and switch to this but they informed me it's just been dispatched this morning. Probably not worth the hassle to RMA and get hit with potential postage/restocking fees now so will stick with it but this deal is an absolute bargain from a solid seller.
Wtf, why would you do that???
Anyone know the next cheapest place to get one with the UK Wararnty?
It's good, accept for the fact I have to keep the phone in extreme power saving mode, if its gonna last a whole day without recharging It's a total ball ache having access to only 8 apps at a time, and not being able to use multi screen
Is this 2019 model any good? samsung.com/uk/tvs/qled-tv/q950r-55-inch-qled-8k-smart-tv-qe55q950rbtxxu/
No, it's not. All these QLED 2020 TV's are very much buyer beware. I'm just going to start copying and pasting what I wrote from another deal to every QLED 2020 deal I come across. If just ONE person manages to avoid these broken TV's then I'll be very happy... This relates to my own 85" Q80T... Terrible, myriad problems. Judder and stutterfest on OTA TV, (mostly 1080i content, although also does it on the inbuilt apps, BBC iPlayer and that is 720p), noticeable DSE banding, eARC does not pass through LPCM audio properly, resulting in some games only being in stereo on PS5 and/or XBOX Series X - so you are stuck deciding whether to have all the good video effects if your amp doesn't support VRR etc or the sound. Etc etc etc - Samsung don't care. I have a few weeks left before my set is 6 months old, so it's almost time for me to allow Argos to try their one repair chance before I give it back for a refund. I really wish it was better - how on earth Samsung think this is acceptable in their QLED 2020 range I just don't know. On the plus, movies (and other 24p content) look great, depending on how much you notice the DSE banding when the picture pans. Unacceptable on a TV near the top of their range, and one that was £3500-£4000 not too long ago. My review says avoid... avforums.com/thr…975 us.community.samsung.com/t5/…450 eu.community.samsung.com/t5/…495 Some folk say they can't see any issues, but it is pretty clear that it is a universal fault with the picture (and sound) processing. So I would say that those folks - you don't need a TV with this apparent spec, just buy the cheapest biggest one you can find.
I need a q80 at this price or willing to pay £50 more for the q90
