5.0 out of 5 stars Good Product, 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good packaging, quick delivery. Formatted for use with my Mac and showed 121Gb. Partitioned it, reformatted tried some read/write and all seems good. It won't get pulled around much as it is just sitting in the slot in my Mac so no idea what the ruggedness may be but it seems solid enough. Put it this was, I had a very well known make break on me as I put it in a slot and that was only a few weeks old, so who knows :)

Worth a try if you want a lot of low cost storage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had discovered this sooner, 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been dissatisfied with the plastic film protectors on the iPhone 6 even though I have been using the very good Terrapin brand. They have all detracted from the look is the phone and get scratched very quickly meaning you need a new one every 2-3 weeks or less. They're not expensive but the phone never looks good.

Well, this Aukey glass screen protector is just amazing. I have always felt that I have bee protecting my screens for those who buy the phone off me and that I have never really had the true feel of the phone because of it but this protector gives you your beautiful phone back.

It has rounded edges that mimic the curve of the screen and it fits nearly edge to edge. Once you have a very thin case on it you can barely see the protector. Very cool.

Application is a little tricky but it is a forgiving product and I was able to remove and reapply having got a tiny dust particle on the protector itself on the first attempt. Watch some videos on line to see it done and then give yourself plenty of time to do it and you will have excellent results.

Take the plunge and buy one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 8.1 finally catching up!!, 2 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product was despatched quickly and arrived on time. The seal on the box was broken though and I had my concerns, however all looked new enough. The unit was shipped from Italy and its an Italian handset so I had to reset everything to get it to UK as a region etc etc. Not much of an issue and worth the £35 saving I guess,

First the Phone review then the OS

The Lumia 830 is a very good phone, pretty thin (not iPhone thin…I have an iPhone 6 and by comparison its positively chunky) and light. its big but the slim chassis makes it manageable. It is quite slippery though and you need a cover to either protect it from slips or to give you more grip. I have the Black one as I am using it for business but I would have liked either the Orange or the Green, however the Black is very slick. The metal border is very pleasant to look at and is a very slightly different colour from the plastic back and contrasts well.

Button layout is pretty standard Windows Phone and it has a dedicated Camera button and capacitive buttons for navigation.

The screen is lovely, not Amoled lovely but very good indeed. Its not the quickest phone in the world, thats down to the slow processor and 1gb RAM but it keeps up with tasks and multitasking very well against my iPhone 6. You do see the ‘resuming’ screen quite a bit but it doesn’t slow things down too much….if it does, press and hold the back button and shut down some tasks.

As I have mentioned you have a removable battery cover and here is where you can add a Micro SD card of up to 128GB….mine is 64GB and works well. This is a major advantage over the 930 that is fatter, heavier and limited to only 32GB internal non expandable storage. It does have a faster processor and 2GB of RAM though.

So the Hardware is good, not cutting edge but reasonable and pleasant to use.

Now the OS.

Windowsphone 8.1 is a huge improvement over previous iterations, I have dabbled in the past with WP and it has always been lacking but now it can stand shoulder to shoulder with iOS and Android. I like it because it is so different, not a copy paste of iOS as Android is and so it has its own identity. You have to get used to where things are but having using WP 7 and 8 its all similar…..but very different to the competition. There is a good collection of Apps in the Store but I wish more companies saw the value in supporting the platform, however most of the ‘must haves’ are there and some not so bad alternatives from developers for the ones that are missing. All in all WP store lags way behind iOS and Android in quantity of Apps but actually, if you cut out the rubbish and dross that clags up Google Play and iOS App Store you will see most of the essentials are there.

OneDrive is seamlessly integrated into the experience and I would say it rivals iCloud in efficiency easily. You have to immerse yourself in the ecosystem though to get the value though and even then there is for me a glaring omission. That is, the lack of ability to stream music via the music app from your OneDrive. Not helpful at all and a real reason to get the 830 over the 930, at least you can stick a big Micro SD card in to carry most of your music. Now this may not bother some people but I use iTunes Match and the Streaming service a great deal (even with a 128GB iPhone 6). Shame Amazon don’t support WP better as you could use their streaming service that works so well in iOS. Like I said, not an issue for some but an irritation for me if I wanted to take just my work phone out and not use my iPhone 6.

Cortana is Beta and good sometimes and patchy others….just remember how ‘good’ Siri was when it launched compared to now so I am betting that by Windowsphine 10 it will be working well.
‘She’ creates appointments easily, reminds you and keeps you unto date with the world. Not a bad Beta attempt.

I haven’t touched much on Social Networking as I don’t bother with it too much but Facebook is integrated well as is Twitter and LinkedIn.

So, in summary, the 830 is a very good phone indeed. It makes me smile using it because for the most part it is slick and very different. The OS is good and once you get used to it it becomes very intuitive. The great news is that WP 10 or Windows 10 (whatever it will be) is compatible with the 830 and so your upgrade should be free and painless and by all accounts will tighten up an already great OS to the standard of iOS. Maybe then more companies will support the smart alternative to iOS and not just follow the crowd with Android.

If you have a Windows PC/Laptop/Tablet then complete the unity with a Windows Phone. You won’t be disappointed, its a great piece of kit and with OneDrive your experience should be slick and seamless. You’ll just have to store your music locally for the moment.

Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT A TERRAPIN PRODUCT but not bad, 27 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a review for the iPhone 6 4.7 case

Ok, so this was never going to be a Terraping case for under £2 including free delivery but it's a good case. Crystal clear TPU, holes and button mouldings very nearly perfect and VERY VERY thin. The case won't offer the same degree of protection as say a genuine Terrapin case as the case is a flush fit with the screen but I wanted clear and thin and that's what I have got.

I have rated 4 not 5 stars as they are a bit cheeky calling it a Terrapin case but as a product it is worthy of 4.5 stars
