3.0 out of 5 stars Not a tight fit, looks nice, not sure of actual protection abilities, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
hmmm I want to like this case, the overall look and feel isn't bad but the rubber inner case just isn't a very tight fit and the clip on outer plastic shell doesn't squeeze the inner case tightly enough to the phone and especially the bottom edge and corners it's easy to pull the case away from the phone, I worry that as the plastic outer shell doesn't cover the bottom corners or bottom edge of the phone at all there's a good chance that dropping the phone and the case might ping off.

If only they had a slightly tighter fit rubber inner and the outer case went all round the edges including the bottom (the most likely area to get dropped on!) this would be a winner.,

I've added a picture showing the ease with which the bottom edge rubber inner case pulls away from the phone, this would not be a problem if they'd simply designed the outer plastic shell to go all around the edge of the phone but for some odd reason it doesn't protect the bottom of the phone where it needs it the most. Please note my phone has a glass screen protector applied so it might look a bit different to the standard phone appearance.

Looks like it's back to the S Line cheapo case for the time being.... I might try putting the rubber case into hot water to see if it shrinks (sometimes works!) obviously remove phone first!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moto G4 Plus Dual Sim - 3G+4G on both sims together!, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:36 Mins

Moto G4 Plus Dual Sim - I got mine direct from Motorola and it has dual SIM. If you're a dual sim user there's a big improvement......read on......

I've owned the Moto Defy, Moto G 1st Gen, Moto G 2nd gen dual Sim, Moto X Play dual Sim and now I have the Moto G4 Plus dual Sim and here's my review:

Positives: Reasonable build quality, decent screen image, good call quality, reasonable mono 'loudspeaker', bright colourful screen, decent reception, camera pretty decent, video seems ok, fingerprint scanner is great, so very easy to unlock a pin protected phone with a finger or thumb, ideal when driving (joke!), performance of apps seems good, no idea about games,

Dual sim - now this may be a deal maker for many dual sim users - BOTH sims can be 3G at the same time or 4G and 3G at the same time, this is a massive improvement if you're a Three network user - nearly all dual SIm phones can only allow 3G/4G on one sim and the other sim is 2G only - this phone allows both sims to be 3G at the same time or 4G and 3G at same time (cannot be 4G on both) - only one sim can do voice and data while the other Sim is voice only, but it is still much more flexible than nearly all other dual sim phones. Video attached showing the 3G and 4G working together at the same time.

Cons:
No compass, arrgh that's a bit annoying if you wander off the beaten track and need a compass for navigation and can't rely on GPS and/or a network connection. No NFC (no problem for me), slightly larger than the Moto X Play but same screen size, almost too big for one handed use but just about ok for my hands. (your hands may be different!), Turbocharger comes with the G4Plus but not the G4, it can get warm, some seem to suffer with heat problems, I had one instance where using the camera made the phone reboot, but only happened once.

It's a big improvement from the Moto G 2nd gen dual sim, better in nearly every possible way, but much less of an improvement over the Moto X Play which is really a slightly better phone in most respects, except for the dual sim feature mentioned above.

Video attached seems to be not displaying well so it's on Youtube, search for "moto g4 dual sim 3g+4g together"

5.0 out of 5 stars Slightly smaller than expected but good value and does to the job, 13 Jun. 2016

Slightly smaller than expected but good value and does to the job - I expected these to be the same size as the ones that came with my Bosch multi-tool... just an assumption I made. But these are a little smaller but come with the adaptor to fit the tool so no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great low cost genuine Makita 2Ah battery, 13 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great low cost genuine Makita 2Ah battery - I like to have a spare battery so while my 3Ah battery is charging I have something else to use and at this very low price for a genuine Makita battery it seemed a sensible approach for my DIY needs. The alleged £59.99 original price is of course complete fiction, you can get a 4Ah battery for that sort of money but at the price of £22.99 that they currently are (May 16) they're great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good home/office desktop PC, 13 Jun. 2016
Good desktop that comes with Windows 7 Pro installed and a Windows 8.1 Pro installation DVD if you want to upgrade or if you prefer you can upgrade for free to Windows 10 Pro if you do so before 31st July 2016.

Build quality isn't bad for the price, there's some expansion/upgrade potential like adding a second hard drive or SSD drive and a second optical disc drive (there are 4 SATA ports on the motherboard) There is a PCI-E graphics solt and a couple of other PCI-E and PCI slots available for adding more cards and on the back has USB 2 and USB 3 ports and a PS2 keyboard & mouse which might seem pointless but if you have a KVM arrangement that uses PS2 connectors that could be useful.

Mine runs very quietly indeed, you hardly hear the thing running. Great value and a good all rounder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers water in a way that was expected, cheap and cheapful, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivers water in a way that was expected, cheap and cheapful - well it's not as sturdily built as the Bristan square shower head that this replaces but it seems fine, it's very cheap, reasonably well built for £14 and works nicely. The rubber bits can be rubbed to clean off limescale build up but they don't stick out very far unlike my previous one. To be honest at this price and with a 5 year warranty you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well with Moto X Play, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as expected with Moto X Play, quick charge certainly works and seems to live up to the claims, the battery does warm up during quick charge but nothing to worry about. Build quality seems ok but I can imagine that as this charger sticks out from the socket more than other chargers there is a chance that if you bumped into it you'd snap the charger from the plug (it's obviously glued/bonded at that point and seems a likely place to break if whacked)

The USB port is a tiny bit off centre with mine so the plug comes out slightly askew, but nothing to worry about so far.... it is cheap and does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice grinder, not to be confused with Grindr, 22 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for grinding food, insert and grind, pretty simple really. Not to be confused with grindr, apparently that's something very different which I discovered accidentally and after 3 hours online looking into that, I had to explain my mistake to the wife. Anyway, 4 months later I'm allowed back in the bedroom and we laugh over my misunderstanding. Well I laugh, she grimmaces.

1.0 out of 5 stars Soft, cheese like sidewalls, not overly impressed with these., 22 Mar. 2016
Soft, cheese like sidewalls, not overly impressed with these. Very soft and squidgy sidewalls, even when inflated quite high the sidewalls can be easily poked with a finger...obviosuly finger poking isn't an issue when driving but pot holes are and I tore the inner edge of my eifficient grip tyre. Not a terrible tyre but I won't be buying these again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Check that mains plug!, 24 Jan. 2016
Check that mains plug! - the pictures of the black device show an illegal non approved 3 pins mains plug, if you get one of these narrow un-fused plugs supplied you should not use the main cable as it's potentially very dangerous. Please see http://www.bs1363.org.uk/ for more info.
