  • The Huawei Mediapad M2 8.0 is a nice little tablet. 1920x1200 screen, Kirin 930 CPU (as seen in the Honor 7), 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable by microSD and LTE built in. It's available to buy from Vodafone in store for £200 plus a mandatory £10 top-up (boo), which makes for a very competitive price for a connected tablet. You can also SIM unlock and bootloader unlock for 4 euros a pop and now... you can de-brand and enable phone calls! 


    Imagine Publishing's 'Android Magazine' is to close, with the current issue that has just hit news stands (issue 63) set to be the last. In a letter sent to subscribers today, the company have confirmed that existing subscriptions will transfer to the sister 'Gadget' title launched late last year, although subscribers of course have the option to cancel if they so wish.


    HTC have announced the '10', their new Android flagship device. With a design language that is distinctly HTC, echoing past devices as well as the recent A9 product, the 10 is instantly recognisable as a HTC product, despite dispensing with classic HTC cues such as the front HTC logo and offset USB port (FINALLY!). As you'd expect, the device isn't left wanting in the specs department - if it all works together well, it looks like it could be a killer device.


    Today we will be liveblogging the launch of Huawei's new flagship, the P9. It seems likely that most of the details about the device have already been covered in a number of leaks - the Kirin 955 CPU, the 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage, the 5.1" FHD screen and no doubt the EMUI4 software on top of Android Marshmallow. But what about that dual camera?


    Nearly 2 years after the announcement of the last Xiaomi flagship - the Mi 4 - its successor, the cleverly named Mi 5, is now available. Featuring a Snapdragon 820 CPU, 3 or 4GB RAM, 32GB - 128GB storage and a 16 Megapixel camera with innovative IOS, the device ticks all the boxes on the dream spec sheet. But how does it measure up as a whole? We're testing one, so if you have questions, ask away!


    MoDaCo Custom ROM is now available for the Honor 7 and Honor 5X. The r1 releases, together with accompanying kitchens, will form the basis of a number of enhancements over the coming months. MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs, and are designed to feel like a stock ROM with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.

    • Hi again everyone, Yesterday afternoon I did another stint of warning sellers on eBay who are selling their hudls (both 1s and 2s) as fully working, unaware that their buyers will want to return them as faulty due to this issue... However, it looks like I've triggered some red flag on eBay and the number of messages I can send per day has been limited (to 6, it seems, after having sent 35 yesterday) so I wondered if someone else could take over for a bit? Someone on this thread did say earlier that they'd been doing the same. I've just had an online chat with eBay and they couldn't see any reason for my outgoing messages being restricted and promised to get the restriction lifted, but if someone else could warn the slew of new listings that would be good. Thanks!
    • I have just come off the phone with tesco about my 2 hudl 2"s that won't connect and have been told its not their problem and they won't do anything about it and it's tough luck go buy a new one... Now both these tablets were working fine before hand and I've had them 2 years from new but sorry to say they don't want to know and say its not there software update so that's it!!!!!! Anyone want a couple of expensive bookends... Dave
    • It will certainly be interesting to see what Tesco IT's reply To BelAstair's message is....it could be quite revealing. My guess is that they've gone for the 'end of useful life' approach not because they can't generate a solution, but because they've been told by higher management that it isn't acceptable to generate one that commits Tesco to any further support resource in future. I feel sure that's the real sticking point....  If I'm right, they might well be open a compromise in providing a solution that permanently removes any future support  commitment. In practice, given that most users won't be capable of the ingenious solutions we've already seen on this forum, this would probably mean their providing an update which removes the requirement to go through Tesco's servers during setup. Provided they issued the necessary instructions for this, and warned everyone with affected HUDLs to run it within a reasonable timeframe, they could then withdraw server support. It would also get them out of a potentially nasty reputational backlash if the broadcast media do start to take an interest. The debacle of the accounting scandal is still relatively fresh in peoples' minds, and they won't want this dredged up again. Let's hope reason prevails...
    • So does this mean Tesco could turn off the server permanently?    Also can someone please tell me how to get rid of box for grocer's quote I decided not to use? It appears in the reply box all the time now.
