I think we are now at the point that at under 300 this is worth buying despite the 25th mix 3 announcement
All Xiaomi Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
RAM has nothing got to do with resolution.
like to help you but mine doesn't have that problem , seems it is a known issue after the Oreo update take a look @this , but i dont leave it on when im not watching, may be thats why i dont have this issue
Kindly ignore the haters who Say 4K doesn't work on the above config , its a streaming box , I have a Mi Box 3 exactly the above config , works perfectly , Netflix 4k, 4k Movies on kodi ,through a NAS (old WD Ex4), Vlan player app & youtube 4K also works fine. Amazon prime needs side loading ( only HD) though . That said I belive 4C is the chinease market version , i could be wrong though
That’s not 4K. The 4K firestick doesn’t come out till next month in the UK. Also, compressed 4K files from Kodi is also not true 4K.
The "leaked" images< which suggested 15th October were unofficial. There was also a "leaked" image< back in August which suggested 15th September, but again it was unofficial. There's always images like those which are interpreted as a possibility at first but as it spreads to more tech sites, more people assume it's a proper date with no actual confirmation. If you look at the August article, the title says "to launch on Sept 15th" despite the titles of the source articles saying "may" or "could". Basically the same happened for the 15th October date too. However, the above image showing 25th October is from the official Xiaomi weibo account, so it's a proper event date set by Xiaomi unlike the previous images.
ar 25th, I thought it was supposed to be announced yesterday :/
Officially being revealed on 25th<
You don't have to pay 20% every time, but you need to inform potential buyers that they may get charged. £11-£14 is the least possible charge they can expect.
I still don't understand. I thought you have to pay 20% tax in the UK even with Priority Line. Here you write "at least £11-£14". What do you mean by that?
Price should be £229, as soon I put the post price go up, so not the cheapest anymore, was to late to remove the deal from hotuk
I was using a normal credit car. they accepted all my details for my card then the next screen wanted a picture of my passport. When I asked them why they need it they never replied.
Yes Ive bought about 9/10 different things over the last 2 years and wasn't asked for a copy of my passport.
Oos back to higher price I wanted to buy 3 but alas
I'm just wondering what 'use-cases' other smart home people are using these for? I have one in my bathroom to give alerts on the humidity and could perhaps use one in the loft to watch the temperature around the boiler. I get the use-case to watch home temperature zones for heating and greenhouses. Any others? I guess a SmartThings/IFTTT/GSheets script that lets you plot temperatures over time could be useful. Anyone seen one?
God dam it - bought 2 from Gearbest yesterday as they’d been reduced to £7
Where do u enter the code? It dosent work for me
Will it work at my local Chinese takeaway then?
On ordering from Gearbest, you will be given a Royal Mail tracking number. I don't know how they do it, but they do (had a MiBand 3 delivered last week this way)
I think @badboyofrock has a point. If a parcel is coming from China and going via UK to Germany, the customs people won't flag it, as the product would be used outside UK borders. But, if it is coming only to a UK address & going no where else, they will most likely. There's a chance this won't be flagged for customs due to size of parcel, as common sense suggests the customs people would be looking for slightly larger parcels/boxes which are slightly more weightier as well. But then again, there is a chance this will be flagged and as a responsible member of this community it is our job to forewarn them.
Just had a quick google search and came up with this for oreo https://forums.androidcentral.com/ask-question/899518-why-does-android-8-0-oreo-take-up-so-much-storage-space.html
Just looking at my Samsung S5 and that's 16gb, the system memory of that is at 4.3gb. No idea why android one on the MI A2 is so much. There's barely any bloatwear on it either
I didn't realise that Android needed that much storage! So an old 16gb phone is virtually useless now?
Warning people, I have the 64gb version of this phone and it is an excellent phone. However you cannot extend the memory with a SD card and the OS takes up 14gb Storage, that wont leave much on a 32gb version of this phone
sam_of_london > loughborough guy
Did the heat come first or the cold?
I think he didn't vote Still worth celebrating (popcorn)
Woah stop what your doing guys, Sam of London has voted hot I repeat, Sam of London has voted hot!
From the same seller
Coming up as $155 for me.
Coming up as 159 dollars?
11 Quid more from Spain - Is it worth it?
Ok, its good to hear from someone in the know. (y) Its good compared to Garmin but with todays technology 5-6 days, just seems a short period of time. I'd personally suffer from battery / range anxiety similar to users of battery powered cars (lol)
Firstbeat Analysis, some training options, swimming and better looks ( but then I own one ). Still looks a good watch for the price if you dont need the extras.
Is there a deal for the 128gb version of this? Going to struggle on 64gb without SD.
Its widely available on Chinese sites, but comes with no band 20.
Haha, yep. ;) (highfive)
with the lights swicthed on?
Just because I heard explorer edition is quite difficult to get due to stock.
Big? I have Huawei P8 Max. That's BIG lol
Lol she might have....
No problem. Did it... I just had some really big problems with Sold by XYZ fulfilled by Amazon. For all who think they are getting safe guarantee: No! Do not you get. You get a 90-day warranty and that's it. The remainder of the warranty is entirely up to the seller...
One year amazon guarantee, even third party sellers fulfilled by amazon. Anyway, bored of this conversation now, move on, and find some xiaomi deals.
blackversion & the blue version now £336.60 , white version has gone up in price mi 8 6+128GB
I dunno,never been abroad with it,I'd use a VPN anyway.
Does this work abroad well on three network?
Flashed ROM. MIUI 10 is for Oreo and Pie
I'm on the Three network and it works well.
Is anyone using xiaomi sensors with NODE-RED? I have started to connect all different xiaomi sensors/buttons and they seem to act good for now!
SmartThings has a reputation for being a nightmare with HA so that may be the reason for your frustration, perhaps dump it and try a different direction. HA is quite simple as long as you don't try to run before you can walk and get your head around the basic principles after which you can just take other peoples code and tweak it for your own purposes without needing to learn anything more involved. Best starting point is something simple with direct control from a built in component and working over wifi rather than needing a third party element, Yeelights are a perfect example.
Well, that's exactly how it should be, Smartthings reading the sensors, and nothing happening. If you're lucky nothing will happen. HA does take some effort, it was enough to setup talking to ST for me, I can't concentrate at the moment for what I have planned, linking up the voice interface https://medium.com/snips-ai
Sorry to hear about the fire. Point them in the direction of a Xiaomi smoke detector! I'm still running smart things as the ZigBee radio for my Xiaomi door sensors and not much else . Don't feel like I'm getting enough use out of it really . Tempted to try some Xiaomi light switches and one of these days I'll dip my toes into HA again but I do find it hard to configure.
Nice one, cheers (y)
Tempted to get this purely because of the battery. It's the only issue that the essential phone suffers from. Just contemplating to buy from here or pay the extra and get it from Amazon for warranty purposes :/
Pocophone or Toby Deals? The phone seems to be pretty much approved of, though there are some issues which some people consider off-putting. The possible error people are making is comparing it to flagships- it isn’t, but seemingly quite close to that level for a fraction of the cost, and flagships can have superfluous features, so why pay for them? If you compare it to phones in its price segment it’s certainly value for money. Toby Deals, like a lot of internet merchants has a vocal amount of critics but probably a silent majority who have no problems . If you buy from them or eGlobal they are more expensive than Aliexpress(at least for this) but with minimal risk of customs/vat. So how lucky do you feel?
Are they any good these?
The code is still active for me but the price has gone up by £2.
code expired i think.
Zek. Thanks for the heads up on this deal, I have ordered 2 of these after giving a lot of thought about the note 5 and this one. I decided on this as it's a newer model and therefore assume it will be updated for at least a year or so, I am OK with the notch and the larger screen and its only cost less than a tenner (£10) more than the note 5, and ordered it on Saturday so I missed today's price hike. I'm aware that the note 5 price may tumble over the coming weeks, but I've spent too much time checking out the prices already, in the end time becomes more important than the money. Thanks for the helpful information supplied by the others on here Cheers (highfive)
Does anyone know how to stop Google Maps working on the lock screen? I just want it to work like normal apps (in particular, because app overlays don't work on the lock screen - so TomTom alerts only works with Google Maps when the phone is unlocked) Thank you :)
Haha! No idea, I'll edit!
What on earth does this mean?
I have always been a stock android fan, but i reverted my mix 2 to global MIUI 10 yesterday and I have to say I am really impressed!
Not gonna bother posting a new deal, but it's now 201.99 at Toby Deals using code YPTDR8 (every little helps): Order Summary Xiaomi MIX 2 6GB/64GB 4G Dual Sim SIM FREE/ UNLOCKED - Black 1 x £209.99 Subtotal £209.99 Discount (YPTDR8) -£8.00 Grand Total £201.99 2.1% TCB!
Does this have face unlock? I've tried looking at the Mi forums which suggest that face unlock might only be available in the Chinese Rom not the global version though I do find those forums hard to follow..!
Thanks but won’t work for me
Here is a copy of the link from the email https://www.topcashback.co.uk/lc?url=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cudG9wY2FzaGJhY2suY28udWsvYm9udXMvbGFwLTUtc2VwdDE4P3V0bV9zb3VyY2U9c29sdXMmdXRtX21lZGl1bT1lbWFpbCZ1dG1fY2FtcGFpZ249VENCJTIwU29sdXM=&l=1506481940&c=6&h=180 That should take you direct to the offer.
Ordered, thank you!
Was a discounted "like new" on amazon warehouse. And needed it urgently.
Looking at that email mine states. Once you have received this email, you may only cancel or return your item under our 30 days return policy. Does this mean as of the date of the email, ?. If so then a delay in delivery would be in their favour.
It works with 200gb (party) (party) Screw those review websites that say only up to 128gb 8)
Yep, yep. Happy days! ;)
What! They're going to open a store in Nov <3 <3
I checked my emails from topcashback after reading the following post https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/topcashback-exclusive-5-cashback-bonus-your-purchase-amount-should-be-10-or-more-invited-members-only-3077331
Thanks for that. However just found this issue doing a quick Google search for Android Auto and the Pocophone. http://en.miui.com/thread-3820868-1-1.html
Does it come with a UK plug? My sister got a global note 5 and that came with one
Or more specific :
What's a Zatos?
Are you being a moron on purpose or are you that ignorant of the smartphone industry? Waiting for your "what's ignorant?" reply.
dw99 yes this should be correct one v2 got different chipset
Is this the model that has hacked firmware available to enable RTSP? https://github.com/Filipowicz251/mijia-1080P-hacks
Fab price, this is the older single band gen 1 version, the gen 2 has dual wifi 2.4 & 5.8Hz WiFi, but is more £ obviously!! Superb video quality, brilliant night mode, all for under £18!!!!! 8)
that is is what all the rewievs say
Hi mate, ..you meant can this be backed up to NAS instead of SD card? I wrote small script to run from as card to NAS but not that good.
