  4. Which Huawei / Honor 18:9 mid-range phone should you buy?

    Glad it's useful, perhaps something similar for the 16:9 models, of which there are many, is in order! P
  5. Which Huawei / Honor 18:9 mid-range phone should you buy?

    I could have done with this 2 weeks ago when my Nexus 5X bricked itself. Spent a week reading stats, wanted USB C and NFC, also fancied a larger screen but that pushes the price up. Ordered a Wileyfox 2X but the Amazon seller let me down, then picked up a P10 Lite (only in Black sadly) when Argos dropped the price of the 7X, so I swapped the order to that, only to find Argos had the wrong stats and NFC wasn't on it! So I dropped down to a P8 Lite which was in Honor Blue (only from CPW) and bar the Micro USB was had very similar specs to my dead N5X and was just £130! Maybe I should have waited for the P9 Lite but I glad I didn't plump too much money as I have since found out all Huaweis have a known issue using Bluetooth to Garmin GPS watches. UPDATE This week a beta update came out for my Garmin (735XT) and it fixes the issue.
  6. Amazfit Bip Review

    Thx for the review - would love to try it out, but sadly on iOS is there NOT support for exporting TCX nor GPX files... to Endomondo etc.
  7. Amazfit Bip Review

    Thanks. Interesting they shipped from UK based stock! For runs and bike rides it's perfect, with TCX export via the third party app.

    Smaller than a Steel I would say!
  9. The Huawei / Honor march towards domination rolls on with the introduction of a raft of mid-range devices featuring the previously flagship 18:9 screen size. For the UK at least however, exactly which device you should buy isn't clear at all. With the Honor 7X, the Honor 9 Lite and the Huawei P Smart all close in price, which one is the one to have? Let us help you choose! We're going to look at the features of each, finishing with pricing so you can decide which is for you. Screen Huawei P Smart: 2160x1080 5.65" Honor 7X: 2160x1080 5.93" Honor 9 Lite: 2160x1080 5.65" The headline feature of all the devices is their 18:9 screens. All are 2160x1080 in resolution, but the Honor 7X goes for the larger size. For comparison, think of the 7X as Galaxy S8 Plus sized and the P Smart and 9 Lite as Galaxy S8 'regular' sized. Your thoughts here are going to be a big factor in your decision! SIM Slots Huawei P Smart: Single SIM Honor 7X / Honor 9 Lite: Dual SIM (or 1 SIM + microSD), 4G + 2G on second SIM A big black mark against the P Smart with only single SIM support. Note that on the dual devices, unlike on higher end phones, the second SIM is limited to 2G. Battery Huawei P Smart: 3000mAh Honor 7X: 3340mAh Honor 9 Lite: 3000mAh The larger size of the 7X pays dividends in battery size, gaining 340mAh (or over 10%) against the smaller phones. Operating System Huawei P Smart: Android 8.0 + EMUI 8 Honor 7X: Android 7.0 + EMUI 5.1 (Oreo to follow) Honor 9 Lite: Android 8.0 + EMUI 8 The 7X launched first, so perhaps it's not surprising it uses Nougat rather than Oreo. An update is expected in Q2 2018 however. NFC Huawei P Smart: Yes Honor 7X: No Honor 9 Lite: Yes Probably the biggest negative of the 7X is that it has no NFC support. Memory / Storage Huawei P Smart: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage Honor 7X: 4GB RAM, 64GB storage Honor 9 Lite: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage Camera Huawei P Smart: Rear 13MP + 2MP, Front 8MP F2.0 Honor 7X: Rear 16MP + 2MP, Front 8MP Honor 9 Lite: Rear 13MP + 2MP, Front 13MP + 2MP Don't let the higher megapixel count fool you - in our testing, the Honor 9 Lite takes the best pics of these devices. Dimensions / Weight Huawei P Smart: 150.1 x 72.1 x 7.5 mm, 165g Honor 7X: 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm, 165g Honor 9 Lite: 151 x 71.9 x 7.6 mm, 149g The Honor 9 Lite is noticeably lighter than the other devices. Colour Huawei P Smart: Black Honor 7X: Blue Honor 9 Lite: Blue or Grey The Honor signature blue is surely the way to go! Common features All the devices use exactly the same CPU - the very capable Kirin 659 mid-range processor (16nm Octa core, 2.36 GHz x 4 + 1.7GHz x 4). Connectivity wise, here's where you'll see mid-range cost savings compared to more expensive devices. All the devices lack 5GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 and use microUSB rather than the newer USB-C (Huawei's proprietary fast charging is included). All of the devices have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. Real pricing Huawei P Smart: £230 (from John Lewis currently OOS, also available from Vodafone) Honor 7X: £240 (Laptops Direct) Honor 9 Lite: £199 with free Honor AM61 Bluetooth sport earphones (Honor UK) So which one should I buy? Let's start with which one you shouldn't buy. I don't see a particularly good reason to buy the P Smart. It's more expensive than the Honor 9 Lite, is single SIM only and that aside they are effectively the same device. Which brings us to the 7X and the 9 Lite. Your choice will probably come down to whether you want a bigger device with more storage - if this is important to you, then the 7X is probably the way to go. But if you want the best phone at the best value... my pick is the Honor 9 Lite. It's extremely good value (particularly with the current free earphones offer), it's stunning to look at and the camera is surprisingly decent. 3GB RAM vs 4GB RAM is largely academic in real use and 32GB will be OK for most people (you can also expand via microSD). If you do buy one of the above, let us know what you think! View full item

  17. Hi, am97, Konsta as far as I am aware no longer replies to posts on these forums from a posting I saw of his a couple of months ago on this forum. You can contact him ethier on Konstakang.com (Click on above post above yours by duttyend to take you to his new website or contact him via his Twitter account, if he is ok for you post a download link here. Although it would be easier to create a new thread here on the zte forums and post your download here. It would be great if you can share your latest version you have created here on these forums as I still have this phone. Hope this helps. Regards Alchess
  18. I would like a gadget that I'm able to jog with it (along with GPS then, as well as a pretty great precision), in which monitors my sleep with great consistency as well as wakes me up utilizing a quiet alarm within an time period determined by me (such as SleepBot for Android can), knowing that is not too ugly or heavy. I'd personally also adore for it to synchronize together with a chest strap as well as to have wrist-based HRM for workout, nevertheless isn't necessary. The equipment which comes nearer to this, In my opinion, is the Fitbit Surge (a bit pricey), nevertheless, I do not like to see in it within my wrist. Will there be something similar like Fitbit so that i can do the wearables comparison?
  19. First of all, thank you for your great work porting CM/LineageOS to the OpenC! I've been using your builds for more than a year now, and I managed to compile a new version, with latest LineageOS upstream code. As far as I tested, everything is working fine. Can I post a download link here?
  20. i installed your new version the last day. this evening i was able to test outgoing and incoming lte calls, they work fine now, thanks for your fast response :) the new update has changed something in the power settings. now the little cpu is way too slow. i changed it to minimum 500 ghz and to interactive governor. otherwise the normal ui response is way too slow for me. everything else seems to work fine, thank you for your wonderful work!
  21. Amazfit Bip Review

    Hi Paul, Thanks, this is the best review of the Bip I've seen. Like Wayne, I've got a Pebble and am a bit worried about when the servers go dark in June. I've just ordered myself a Bip (Geekbuying) and they seem to have shipped from UK based stock, so should be here soon. I'm interested in using it to track runs and bike rides (and could it replace my Garmin and thus pay for itself...?)
  22. Uhans K5000 IP68 Rugged smartphone

    I love the toughness of the phone and features as well. I want to see the user review here.
  23. Nomu S10 Pro  IP68+ Rating 

    First, the delivery speed is very fast. It surprised me when I opened the box. Cool appearance, clean system, few factory software, so that I didn’t need to uninstall unnecessary software. The next is the good battery performance, 49% electricity, only consumes 1% for the first night. What a surprise! Haven’t tested the rugged function, but think it ok considering the exquisite workmanship.
