  1. Recommend me a game to get

    Man up, toss that mic and play some W3
  2. Windows to Android?

    Short answer: No Long Answer: No
  3. Galaxy A5 2017

    Should be no problemo Click here and expand the network section Both A520F single and dual sim models Unless the carrier you're with follows the idiotic North American practice of carrier-locked devices, you should be fine with the A5 Or if you know the law there requires all phones sold to be unlocked (I dont know I'm not from Uruguay or anywhere in South America)
  4. Root Nexus 5x

    Just buy Andromeda if all you want is to mod the UI. No need to root if you dont intend to use apps that obviously require root. Also you said you care about privacy and considering those chinese one-click root methods? That is amusing
  5. Andriod ROM for Battery Life

    You're better off asking on XDA where the rom threads are. I don't think there are more than a handful of people here (none of which I know) who has tried multiple roms on a le s3. LOS 14.1 having good battery life on another phone doesn't mean its the same case for yours. Keep in mind the le s3 has an unexceptional 3000mAh battery and you cannot expect to see any significant improvement in endurance through just the rom if you are a heavy phone user. Other things you can do is to have a minimal amount of apps that run in the background. If necessary, to use Greenify or even stop wakelocks. If you have root you can go as far as removing normally unremovable bloat apps and using kernals that have a low power profile or underclocking the processor. I never had a LeEco phone. Good luck.
  6. Need help to verify if phone is new

    Ask for photos (with a special handwritten note in picture so you know he didn't pinch the image off another site) and if its still sealed in its box, its new.
  7. My Huawei honor 6C Pro finally arrived! :3

    I hope you like your new 720p Nougat phone
  8. As long as its not a really old product, they should all have backlit LED screens. With the exception of OLED screens because those do not require a backlight. And unless they specify that it is an IPS or PLS panel, its probably a TN panel. IPS/PLS produces much better colors and has wider viewing angles, which are immediately visible. The only reason to accept a TN panel is if it has a really high refresh rate (typically 144Hz). People go for those if they are into fast paced competitive shooter games (kind of hilarious doing that on a laptop) Your idea of running the 4k screen at 1080p is not a bad one, although the screen itself is going to take more power to run (even if you only output 1080p) Also 'Anti-glare' means the same thing as 'matte', which is the surface texture of the screen. 'Glossy' is smooth like glass but you will see a lot of reflections. 'Matte' is a rough, grainy texture that practically eliminates reflections, at a the cost of a bit of image clarity.
  9. Monitor upgrade choice for gaming

    What are you trying to achieve that your current setup can't do? Mind explaining So we can make the right suggestions to help you get there
  10. I don't know where to turn

    220W CPU in a 970 chipset? Yeah your mobo is definitely fried. The 9370 might still be working. If you can test it to be working, sell it to recover some $$ Also your RAM would have to be DDR3... you need DDR4 for the newest chipsets available. If you can sell your DDR3 that would give more breathing space for a nice new CPU/mobo combination.
  11. OnePlus 5T recommendations

    Well Oneplus phones cost less than comparable flagships from other brands, and offer generous amounts of RAM. Also a unique design feature, the normal/DND/silent mode slider which is really handy. The downside is lack of sdcard slot. So if you can afford and want to play it safe, the 128GB version. As above said Oneplus phones lack water resistance, although there are no phones out there that are water proof. As for the color, pick the one that suits your image. Generic black if you are the conservative/neutral type. Red if you want to stand out or match a bright colored outfit.
  12. Iphone x vs s9

    If you're clueless just get highest specced iPhone you can afford. Perfect for people like you. Thats why iPhones are so popular
  13. I don't know where to turn

    Didn't you start in 2015? Which is? So you're assuming that both CPU and mobo are dead? And going to replace them both? What is your combined budget for mobo and CPU? Not a good idea to single out a fixed budget for each component, when you don't even know what to get. What are the parts you currently have? Which ones can you confirm to be functional? PSU and case as well. Don't want to be using a bomb for PSU or getting a mobo that won't fit the case.
  14. Plz help choose

    Going for the Redmi 5 Plus 4000mAh battery versus 3000mAh Native support to record in 4k60 Does not have glass back (subjective) Slight larger device (subjective) 5V/2A charging Going for the Honor 8 Lite Oreo out of the box Dual main cam (13MP + 2MP) Dual front cam (13MP + 2MP) Slimmer device (7.6mm vs 8.1mm) Supports USB OTG Slightly smaller device (subjective) If you get the Redmi 5 Plus, its probably the China version which does not support CDMA. The global version is called the Redmi Note 5 and was just announced this month. If that doesn't matter to you, just make sure what you get has the ROM in English. There are also multiple region models of the Honor 8 Lite so make sure you get one that works in your country.
