I use Disa on android as a messenger replacement (can still chat to people on facebook etc)
I guess i hate that it is automatically enabled by default, and turns itself on every driver update.
Also i probably dont know enough about it but i dont see how its any different to v-sync thats been in every game the past decade, except its proprietary and now affects the monitors people consider buying, based on if it uses free/g sync and what their card is
fricken hate g-sync, gotta disable it every driver update.
also kind of wish i got a 1080p monitor with 144hz and 1ms if such a thing exists, running games at 1440p puts extra strain on my gtx980 and i dont think the tradeoff in pixel density was worth it.
got my folks a redmi 4 prime each for around $250 they adore these phones and will last them a good couple of years
should do it for all drivers, then theres a better chance for people to use generic roms instead of waiting for the company to upgrade to the latest android
same for security patches, my old phone was 1 and a half years behind the latest security patch!
Freeview isnt relevent to my family as we dont have any devices that support it and arent planning to buy a new tv just for it
Wonder the costs involved in creating a HD broadcast.
Also kind of confuses people with having double ups on each channel (SD/HD)
Why cant they dump the SD channels and save money to make the rest HD
How do you go about finding that information?
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- outdated Android version (4.4.2 came out Dec 2013)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
