5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of phone for your money, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say im very impressed with this device..you get alot of smartphone for your money.
Device came well packaged and nicely presented and after setting it up and having a play i have to say im impressed,device does everything a £400 device would do,the firmware is Android kitkat 4.4.2 and seems to be a mish mash of Samsung and LG software it has a few lg apps installed plus all the regular android apps from Google but it works really well,I have tested the GPS and had no trouble locking onto 7 satellites.also a nice feature is the notifications/pull down draw bar giving you access to system settings and allows you to turn on/off wifi or sound,gps,mobile data etc
Touch to wake/sleep works fine and is a great feature on such a comparatively cheap phone,screen is clear and bright,play store works fine and runs and installs apps without any stalling,Device is also equipped with the ability to use air gestures which is great but for me whats the point you may as well touch the screen.
Overall i am real happy with my purchase its a great device and very impressive for the money and very easy to root..
I would recommend to both the novice and experienced user as it does it all with no effort at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorola Moto G 5 inch 2nd gen., 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Device itself is great value for money..it will do everything you need it to but for me it just did not look or feel right.
I found the display needs to be tweaked somewhat icons appear rather large on screen but installing a 3rd party launcher really cheers up the display,I found it difficult to get a decent signal in my home on three network..it worked fine by the front door or window this could be down to device or network but other devices I own have no problem with network signals..
Overall it's a decent device for the price but feel it needs a decent update to cheer it up and maybe this will come in the form of a android 5 lollipop update as device is currently on kitkat but lollipop update is being rolled out now but at time of writing this update is yet to arrive in the UK.

Got to be the best android device on the market.nothing comes close to it at present.
the new moto x will have a go but it is still no match.
I ordered my G2 on Saturday afternoon and was delivered Sunday yes Sunday at 13.00
this is a beautiful device and i am so pleased i choose it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star S9500, 24 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great device.I know my way round android devices very well.Upon investigating this device i discovered a file in the system that is aimed to deceive you. "agold_cheat_evaluating_software.xml" This script fools all benchmark testing softwares into reporting any MTK6582 and even an MTK6572 device to be reported as an MTK6589 with a CPU frequency of 1.2ghz daft on this device really as the true CPU speed is 1300mhz not 1200mhz.
It is in the end a more powerful cpu 1300mhz MTK6582 and the device itself is great for the money..I have rooted mine and set it up got rid of the stuff i dont want especially the cheat file.
Its nice and light compared to other star s4 type devices has the s@msung touchwiz interface and s4 ringtones and wallpapers the colours are great, speed is fast no lag..might be worth you installing the Google experience launcher for those who prefer stock launcher as i did find the touchwiz style launcher a bit laggy...
overall a great device.

1.0 out of 5 stars Senseo descaler, 3 Jan. 2014
I can not believe the price these charge for this unbelievable.
It is after all just citric acid and you can buy it in loads of places like boots
any home brew shop or wilkes, Holland and barret etc.
I buy 500g of food grade citric acid(enough for 5 double de-scales)for only £2.75 posted free.I use 4-5 teaspoons to a pint of water and de-scale as per sensao manual instructions....

5.0 out of 5 stars VU+ Solo² best box on the market., 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have in my time had many Linux based receivers so very knowledgeable when it comes to Linux receivers..
I have owned near enough every make of box and worked my way up to the most expensive box on the market the vu+duo2.
well i must say I do like the duo2 but its ugly over sized and i really dislike its shabby VFD display and the pointless lcd display
So im going back to the solo2 i have owned one before and which in my opinion is the best Linux box money can buy..Its clean crisp display is worthwhile and has all the functions of its big brother the duo2.
It has come down in price a little and got mine from Hyper Direct at a great price £269 and super fast next day delivery..
you really can not go wrong with the solo2 a great multi functional box that does everything i ask of it.
So if you want a good stable and reliable Linux receiver i suggest you get the u+ solo2 as it wont let you down..also massive support from many image teams including openvix,openpli,vti,blackhole all with their own dedicated support forums.

5.0 out of 5 stars VENTON UNIBOX HD1PLUS SATELLITE RECEIVER from LWI SATELLITE, 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This box is in a class of its own from other boxes in the same price bracket.I have had alot of enigma2 sat boxes and Having done alot of research LWI are the cheapest on the net and proved to be top notch sellers.
The box itself is very well built and feels very solid the front display is a great bonus as you don't get on many other single tuner boxes.
Box comes shipped with its own venton factory image but was a bit boring for me so immediately flashed with the latest vix image which is my favourite anyway also box is well supported by other image providers.Everything worked out the box image set up takes 5 mins.
All in all the best single tuner in its price range.HDMI out,3xusb ports,internal fan,plug and play tuners(can fit another tuner to make it a twin..(you will need to flash latest bootloader to enable image update from front usb)but if your not bothered just use a back one.
So to cap it i am very impressed with this box for the price its amazing much cheaper than single tuner clones.
15 out of 10.

Samsung 10.1 inch Book Cover Case for Galaxy Tab 2 - Light Blue
Samsung 10.1 inch Book Cover Case for Galaxy Tab 2 - Light Blue
Price: £11.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Expected better from Samsung, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although yes this is a top quality case,well made,and a good fit for the device,I find that the cover never quite stays over the screen when closed it needs some magnets or the like to keep the cover snapped closed.
Also as with alot of other covers they have not factored in the back camera,when cover is flipped over you can not use back camera as they neglected for some reason to put a hole in it to allow use with the cover flipped as it is very awkward to use back camera and hold screen flap open and away from lens.for the cost i wanted better and expected a better design from Samsung.
