The thing looks like most Chinese media boxes out there:
- low end specs
- outdated Android version (4.4.2 came out Dec 2013)
- Most apps wont function properly due to being designed for touch screen.
For an extra $14 you can grab a Mi box 3 from aliexpress that supports 4K playback, has slightly better specs but runs fully fledged AndroidTV 6.0 (soon to roll out ATV 7.0)
Initial Speedtest obviously.
Then see if its good enough to play overwatch on my gaming laptop.
Testing speeds is fine, but what will pings be like!
If it is 2G only (which is downright dumb)
How can it use Facebook messenger?
I got a pixel and turned off the assistant, just.. didnt need it.
keen for the new shield, same harware as the old, just smaller, would love it to be sold within australia, or even ship to aus through official channels
Thats a bloody huge leap in phone tech for that bloke, i'll bet he didnt charge that phone for a few days, now he will have to charge it daily
The samsung rep at my friends JBHIFI was pissy becase the protab s isnt getting sold, so obviously they are paying gizmodo and other companies to pump good reviews for it.
But the rep let slip that new variations of the protab s (core i5/i7) wi be out towards the end of the year
Yep, a good technique for smaller items is to choose a good background photo and use it for when taking photos, makes it looks all that more pleasing to the eye
i went to the apps connected to my acc and pokemon go isnt in the list which is odd
Theres also a heap of chinese branded electric cars in the works.
E-roadster, LeEco, NextEV etc
But my favourite would be the Youxia X, its car badge is a LCD screen and you can change it to what you want
I love Chinese smartphone, you can get brands that rival or exceed the specs/design of flagship phones sold in aus, but for sooooo much cheaper
Android N (V7.0) Developers Preview is already out as of a few days ago,
Really wish drivers were separated from the OS just like Windows, then you could theoretically just install a base android version, then get drivers from the Phones,hardware manufacturers websites to install, mind you they would still need to develop and update the drivers but it might be an idea
I would guess removing adverts would open many more programming slots, while a good thing for us, means they would need to purchase more shows and up the cost?
You certainly are not wrong buddy,
Most legitimate importers are quoting $650(32GB) $750 (64GB) $850 (128GB) in AUD, all that is before shipping costs too, Also almost every single importer is now out of stock for the black model
They are not for sale yet (mid march) and they are not sold in Australia, only china,Taiwan etc
If you want to buy one you can only do it through a 3rd party website that you need to research to avoid getting stuck with a fake phone
I waited so long for the xiaomi mi4, They initially didnt support FDD LTE (4G Australia) and when they did, it came in white and 16GB only, then 2 months after that it finally came out in black but had 1GB less ram than the others, was really really odd.
Clearly its not for the Australian market but i hope their rollout is smoother and quicker than the Mi4, because ill pick one of these up in an instant.
cant say i have been to Sydney, but i can guarantee Perth's are abysmal
Luckily wont be doing any traveling tonight, but if i had to id still have picked uber over a taxi, its no competition when you can pre pay and set your destination, giving no reason for a driver to take you on a scenic route for more money
I have a synology nas, and i dont use a single one of their apps.
I recommend ES File Explorer, it lets you connect to any LAN device, browse,copy,play
I picked one up with a standard xbone controller the other day
Only because most games support the xbox360 controller and this is compatable.
Also want to point out that the newer xbone controllers have a 3.5mm headphone jack in them, which i can confirm that works over the wifi, even the mic on most mobile earbuds work!
Where is Channel 9's live tv?
all i can find is on demand videos
To clear things up
Sake ('Liquor') is kind of a general term for Alcohol in Japan
The correct word(s) for "Sake" is Nihonshu ('Japanese Liquor') or Seishu ('Clear Liquor')
I am tempted to buy it outright because I don't have enough information about upgrading from windows 8.1
1) is the upgrade going to correspond to the windows 8 version you have?, so will 8.1 pro upgrade to 10 pro??
2) will you get a new cd-key for win10, or is the 8.1 compatable with 10, meaning, can i download a full iso of windows 10 so i don't have to install 8.1 then upgrade every time i format?
3) if i do end up getting 10 home, how much does upgrading it to pro cost?
I was just going to buy it online, but if its not much more expensive, a USB retail copy sounds pretty interesting!
Best media center i ever owned was a hacked original xbox, simple browser for local/network and played everything without complaining.
I can be bothered getting a full pc again, it was too much effort to configure, androidTV and intel compute sticks are getting there, probably 2nd gen stuff will be worth it
I am just speculating here, but they are probably doing this so that when majority of downloaders move deeper underground, they can report on numbers dropping thanks to their laws and get good PR for it
