I had provoems a while back just going from lg g5 to a new lg g5 using LG software! I now do it manually. Back up contacts to cloud and same with blocked numbers using an app for that. Redownload apps and many are linked to phone number so re reoigster fine but otherwise need to remember passwords so try and use Google password manager more now
EVen the Samsung Smart switch does not work. WOrks one way only, to receive files from any Android.. Sending from Samsung is restricted to Samsung only. Messy.
Help needed : Cant transfer all data via Cloneit app to the new Xiaomi Mi10 Lite 5g. Sender is a Samsung A30. keeps saying starting WLAN hotspot. and both keep searching each other ! What could I be missing? Any alternatives ? This is what I always dread when switching phones.
I got mine yesterday. Took about a week to get delivered. Overall I'm impressed with the phone. My old Honor 10 was getting a bit long in the tooth after 2.5 years of use. Seeing as this is half the price of my old honor phone, it's quicker, faster and the screen is better. My only gripe is it's probably a little too big for me and the camera is average. I've tried putting on the google camera software on it to see if it improves but I can't say I've noticed any difference. Can't really complain for a phone that costs 200 quid!

Well, two days of use. Absolutely fabulous phone. Over the moon with it.
still have some?
What screen on time are you getting ? Nothing will ever touch the p30 pro battery wise sadly
Anyone else underwhelmed by the battery? I've come from a 1yr old P30 Pro, running the same apps, but I don't see any improvement. (confused) Nothing obvious running or draining the battery, though this is a bit vague.
You tried within the garmin app? Go to settings in garmin connect, then notifications, then app notifications. Then you have to toggle each app on or off as loads are off by default.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K Ultra HD Android TV 9.0 HDR £36.11 Delivered using code @ AliExpress / Xiaomi MC Store£36.11£4520% offAliExpress Deals
Can you download on android TVs and watch later for Amazon prime and Netflix, like you can on the android apps on a phone?
I bought the stick recently so I could watch eurosport on a TV in my home office while working from home. Its slow, navigating the menus is painful at times because there is such a delay. For my limited use and the fact I don't have a shelf to mount a box on anyway, I can live with it. If it was my main media device in the living room room I'd definitely look at something else. Can't comment on this mi TV box but I know it's better specced. I think they share the same remote though, and I've found the remote to be good quality and easy to use. One thing about the stick is itv hub doesn't work for me, can't get iplayer or c4 and you can't cast live TV off the phone apps over chromecast (casting catch up is ok). Might be an issue if you don't have an aerial to your TV. Not sure if the box has the same issue as the stick. Final thing I have to say is that xiaomi are not some generic Chinese brand selling cheap knock offs. It seems a few people here don't realise that and I'd suggest they give xiaomi products a go before dismissing them so easily.
That's great but they're all in a different League. Xiaomi is a recognised brand. They even previously had a store in the UK. This box is also available from their UK site for £64.99 so this really is a deal.
Ahh the yearly TV box that I buy because everyone raves about it yet ends up being absolute trash... Think this year I'll give it a miss
All of your other boxes are knock-off, this is genuine android TV box from one of the largest companies in the world. I'll admit nvidia shield TV is best overall I have the 2015 model and still super device.. however at much higher cost, this one will get updates maybe not to nvidia level but not many official boxes out there.
Never miss a 'Xiaomi Mi Box' deal again!

I wonder how long it'll be till someone can do a comparison with yours and the new chromecast? Gutted they're coming out at £60 when they're only $50 in the states
Mine arrived today from My Memory and it’s not got a UK plug or adapter. All I got was the 2 pin power adapter and no way to power it with a 3 pin plug.
Connects via HDMI, I have only one port on my monitor for console lol I only need it to cast or mirror my phone. I'll wait till 30th. Im thinking of chrome cast at the moment.
Not for gaming 1GB RAM. Not for IPTV streaming crushing when loading 100,000 channels.
Yeah the android TV was redesigned specifically to be used in a TV. I should have said the reason for my comment was to alert people about the old android boxes being the mobile version of android and "should" run sky go, could be a cheaper option than having sky multi room, im sure my android box was only £30 about 5 years ago. Hopefully be able to pick them up these days for cheap.

I have an 256 GB SSD inside a USB3 enclosure connected to the Xiaomi Mi Box S. It works great
Anyone got delivery of their Mi TV stick yet? I got a notification from Royal Mail that mine had now left the Netherlands yesterday, and was on route to me. Mine seems to have been picked up by customs for duty so that's at least another £8 😔. Hopefully the declared value is accurate. Did request that the package was labelled as gift. Oh well can't win them all.
Tizen OS yeah? Yeah Samsung are one of the better companies for keeping their stuff up to date. If you have every app you want then what would you need this for? Most people will probably use it to sideload apps
Its a Samsung TV which has any app I ever need, I was surprised even Disney and some Asian streaming apps were there too.
If you have a TV like that I'm guessing an Android TV one or a Fire TV one..? then not really

I have never used the app so can't tell you either way.
Google if you can sideload the app on which devices. Take it from there. Sometimes you can sideload apps but they're not optimised for these devices. Do a couple of Google hits, watch some YT videos and you'll find out if possible or not
You wouldn't know if Google tv chromecast is the device I'm looking for, would you?
You see. I've got now tv + netflix, amazon prime on TV. The ONLY reason I'm looking for new device is watching 'myCANAL' app, it's french/polish TV app. I'm trying to find out if I'll be able to watch some live football on a device. Don't want to buy sth I won't be able to do it on.

The boot loop will happen if the charger supply isn't high enough. This also happened on the firestick I had previously. I agree the region no UK, which surprised me. I have sideload iPlayer. I found a crazy good media player app for my IPTV.. it's called tivimate. Best one I've come across. You can get premium version on the app or look YouTube and lots other ways to get it. In terms of the stick, I like it and use it mainly as media streamer and not had any issues whatsoever.
Ok, it's arrived. Came with a USA->UK plug adaptor for the USB power supply. I tried another USB power supply and it boot-looped .. so sticking with the one that came with. Controls are a bit plasticy. No signs of a UK region when you first setup so I picked the USA. Needed an android update straight away. Looks like I'm going to need to sideload BBC Iplayer onto this
Despite suffering the original Mi Box (with its random reboots, disconnections and memory corruptions), I'm still interested in this. I managed to get the UK catch-up services installed on my old Mi Box (though I'm pretty sure some of them needed a mouse). My5 has a good Android TV app tho, and - IIRC - iPlayer and ITV Hub do have native x64 Android TV apps for the Nvidia Shield, and this seems to be x64 too, so they could possibly be sideloaded? So that would only leave All4, and I'm pretty sure the regular Android app for that is (sort of) navigable without a mouse (confused) What's this all about though: "We will open the original box to check the phone and install Multi-language ROM and Google play store. Official rom will be prefered. If custom translation may does not cover all the menus. We may update the ROM, so the OS version may different as the screenshots." Did they modify the OS? Is it gonna all be in Chinglish??
After the (poo) that was the Mi Box, I'm awaiting the new Chromecase/TV Stick....BUT............only if there are the UK streaming apps available Still no iPlayer and all the other UK apps Otherwise I'll stick with the crappy FireTv interface where I can do all the apps
It's same spec as firestick 2 on ram and I have no issues with that. I suppose it really depends what want to use it for.

Hi guys i have a question. Do you know where I can buy that xiaomi mi box 4s from original source? I know they have it on official website but out of stock
I have one of these and they are a fantastic bit of kit. I paid around this price elsewhere when they were on offer.
Are these coming back in stock soon?
Makes no sense at all that comment. Fire-sticks are basically junk next to an Nvidia shield so why are they still around ??and iptv is available on all android boxes,that is usually the main reason people have these boxes.
Bet you would.

Anyone know if I can use this to watch live TV for throughput broadband.... I don't have an aerial...I've heard freeview is coming to android tv
Just found this generic brand one and notice the specs look much better than the Mi Box S for not a whole lot more. Anyone know if I'm missing something? https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07YYWSCZC/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_orWwEbF3J1XNF
Is this 32 or 64 bit? There's a distinct lack of catch-up services for Android TV (no iPlayer, ITV player, All 4), but if it's 64 bit you could possibly sideload the specially-made Nvidia Shield versions of those apps, which makes the box infinitely more useful
Still can't decide whether to try one of these or an android box like X96air Like the idea of the Android TV OS and Chromecast built in, but don't like the lacking Ethernet connection, also RAM & ROM lower on this
Performance wise, is this much better than a Firestick 4K?

So how comes China is disinfecting money and quarantining money for 14 or outright destroying it to contain the virus...are China racist and bigoted to themselves???
I think they took the right approach, too. But I don't think it's a significant concern for other countries at this stage, assuming people are sensible. Their approach has likely had a huge impact on keeping it so contained so far.
Thanks @Aliholic for posting the deal. Unfortunately, they don't ship to the UK from Spain so I had to expire the deal.
Anyone confirm if the volume controls the TV volume, or is it for the device?
Yes many companies including Primark, Apple and others are affected by this. But the bigger companies like this would have a much larger stock hold than smaller companies like myself. If this does not start moving again as usual I will have to close down my physical products business until further notice. I have a few other incomes mostly POD that I can rely on but it's been a tough month.

You can stare at it and wonder about the marvel tech has become ( (angel) Don't forget to dust it off from time to time 👻)
Nvidia is still gold standard, but more than double the money, unless you do the sensible thing and buy one used on eBay
You can yes if you have an android phone and already have FM installed, you can backup the app and then send and install the backup file to this or any other android box/tv. It might not be worth it though unless you have a keyboard/mouse because using a remote would be frustrating (shock)
I don't have a mi box, but because it's running Android maybe what I use might work for you. 1) Download the "downloader" app from the store. - If the app is not on playstore: Download "es file explorer" from store. Watch this video - it will show you how to download the app through ES. 2) on the downloader app, enter the link for whichever app you want to download then select open/install. Amazon prime video link https://en.aptoide.com/download?package_uname=prime-video OR What I do (android phone required) - install ES file explorer on both the box/tv and your phone - 1) box/tv: open ES file explorer - 2) phone: download the APK for the app you want on your box or android TV, for this example go to https://en.aptoide.com/download?package_uname=prime-video and download the apk. - 3) phone: open es file explorer on your phone, locate the downloaded apk file, long press on the file to select it(blue tick), press the three dot icon (menu) usually top right of the app and select "Send". It will scan for devices (it will list any devices on the same network that have ES File Explorer open). - 4) phone: select your box/tv and press the top right icon (phone with an arrow pointing right). - 5) Box/TV: select "OK" to confirm and then select where to save the file to (anywhere is fine). Select "OK". Once it's been sent, select "OPEN" > "INSTALL" > INSTALL. 6) your app is installed :) Any app that works on Android can be sideloaded this way, including the free apps not mentioned here that have every TV show/movie in HD :)

Works fine with Virgin hub here. Most likely V hub issue. If you select 5ghz wifi band you router need to work within 36-48 channels.
Bought a Roku once, apparently it didn't like Virgin media's hub. Virgin couldn't fix it, Roku couldn't fix it - will never buy their products again. Not sure if you can get Kodi / TeaTV / Showbox etc on Roku - maybe you can. If not then these android boxes are the way to go. Edit - I believe the issue was related to an enforced proxy that I couldn't change.
Consumer rights mean the seller is liable for the device until delivery, I wouldn't ever pay more for insured delivery from EU that eglobal do.
do you know what kind of power connection plug it takes? name or pic of the plug end might help identify it. I'm guessing its universal type. so i can find one with a uk 3 pin on other end on amazon or ebay.
The one I ordered from eBay came with an adapter which is fine but I'll probably get a proper plug eventually. The box only arrived yesterday. Still finding my way with Android TV os but the box itself seems very responsive for the price/specs. Ethernet and an extra USB (3.0 preferably) port would have been nice but I'm delighted so far. The Google assistant integration is fantastic and I'm sure there's a great many more ways of making it useful I'm yet to discover.
so no travel adaptor like the chines sellers. hopefully it comes on offer again, otherwise will have to buy from china. as not worth extra £20 just for plug. do you know what kind of power plug it is? if it doesn't come on offfer again. photo or anything would help. would mean i could buy the plug myself if universal connection. with longer lead and no need for a travel adapter.
This comes with the UK plug and is the international version, it's worth mentioning the length of the lead is quite short for those who have their TV mounted.
does this international version come with a EU plug or UK plug?
does this international version come with a EU plug or UK plug? anyone know who's bought it.

One can simply save their money and add fmovies.taxi to their favourite built in browser's bookmarks on their smart TV and with one or two extra clicks to get rid of an ad it's easy. Kodi and the like require maintenence or a conversation that lasts ten hours with your mum/dad/girlfriend when they don't understand the stupid simple interface anyway. I am willing to be convinced, the cost of having an additional controller for my TV seems excessive, one is more than enough for me. Can't see the benefits outweighing the cost of having to get up off the couch when I remember that I forgot to pick up the stupid second controller.
Mehhhhhh with a smart TV this seems pointless. Any point in this over a smart TV? Kodi bla bla bla, I don't really care, it's all just a pish interface on the same old crap we have all been doing for years. On the rare occasion these days I can be bothered watching a movie it might be helpful but honestly cinema as a category is dying and I rarely have any desire to watch a movie these days, they all seem pish. So whats the point? A decent way of getting illicit football streams would be good but even with a laptop hooked up you're still struggling and mehh again... If you know someone with Netflix and someone with amazon video just borrow their accounts and you're good to go. This is pointless. The idea of the earlier poster of spending even more on an nvidia shield for this sort of crap seems even more like lunacy.
Fair play to that, I couldn't agree with you more, especially if the inconsistencies of the Widevine L1 thing required for my intended purpose for it, wasn't a 100% guaranteed factor at the time too, or whatever whatever?, then ... Yes, I would have done the exact same thing too basically, lol, so I don't blame you. :-D I take it that your impressively 'discounted' Shield is still firing on all cylinders then?, hehehehe.
Hehehehehehe, good point, and I look forward to that too (well, here's hoping, etc?). :-D
Yes, Prime Day. Not long now until Black Friday. Given they've already reduced them to £25, they'll have to do the same this November. You might even be able to pick up a £10 credit for trialing Audible or briefly setting your default payment method to Mastercard.
