  1. I see .. guess I'll be boosting that brightness. Sucks though ..
  2. Hello everyone, I have had my iphone x for almost half a year now and it's been truly amazing but recently with the push of dark mode in many of the apps I've noticed something. When I am using dark mode in messenger, twitter, reddit wherever there are icons and such when I scroll down or wiggle up and down fast there seems to be this (bear with me as I have absolutely no idea how to explain it and screen record doesn't show it) delayed follow-up of icons almost as if I am dragging them as well, sort of like they're are bleeding (not the normal color bleed we're familiar with but more like blood dripping down). However, I noticed this happens only when brightness is below say 40%, anything above that it's not that noticeable and above 70% it disappears completely. So .. is anyone experiencing this as well? Any ways to fix this?
  3. Yeah I guess I'll just keep saving money for now. Will try to find an envy model without HDD.
  4. Forgot to mention touchscreen is a must. Never had a laptop with a touchscreen but after seeing friends with those I have no idea how I've lived so far without a touchscreen lol.
  5. Well I kind of do. Why would I go for the Envy series though ? All of them have HDDs and they consume a lot of battery? Correct me if I'm wrong of course but wouldn't that mean I won't be able to get 8h no matter what I do? For now I know that my best choice is the spectre 13" x360 8th gen i7 and 16gb ram but that's well over my budget and the only other thing that's left in my budget range is the asus I mentioned but sadly it has 8gb of ram ddr3 which is simply unacceptable in 2018 .. may as well just stick with this laptop and use my phone somehow idk ..
  6. Yeah, an upper ceiling I'd say 1250USD, that's as far as I can possibly go.
  7. Really sorry for the late reply, extremely few busy days in uni. For battery life I am quite serious .. literally the more the better, I won't be satisfied for anything that goes under 6h under wifi and chrome usage. I can buy from both markets. Right now the only laptop I have my eyes on is the Asus Zenbook Flip 14 with the i7 and mx150 - people are saying battery life easily does 7-8 hours under normal usage, okay performance for this kinda laptop but the only problem is I can't find it with 16GB ram .. and 8gb ram DDR3 doesn't sound good enough to me for this kind of price laptop.
  8. I am in the UK but have access to EU market easily. I am not too sure about the max weight just anything below 2.4 would be fine I guess ? I just want to easily carry it around and just not think about the weight at all. Display size is smth I don't care about that much anymore coming from the 17 .. I am fine with 13 to 16 and battery life .. the more the better. literally. Currently looking at the HP Envy/Spectre x360, ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN and the Lenovo Yoga 730. Not sure if those are my best choices though. Open to more proposals and comments about the beforementioned laptops.
  9. Yeah, I know a mac is what I need but sadly it's way out of my price range. And if I were to get a mac I'd rather do it the proper way.
  10. Hello guys, I am in the market for a new laptop. Currently, I am rocking the Asus N752VX and for a student well .. it's just not the right choice. What I want from my new laptop is for it to have: long lasting battery (full day of lectures and whatnot without me thinking about battery ofc not being that guy rocking the full brightness and stuff), very good display (4k if possible because I like watching stuff on it and occasionally gaming). Yes .. gaming - I am going to be gaming extremely rarely but I do wish that when I do it will actually perform. My price limit is somewhere around the 1100$ price mark. SSD is a must. Also I forgot to mention my other main issue with the Asus - it weighs freaking 3kgs .. and I travel quite a lot. Even if we leave alone the fact that I want to carry it to university every day just traveling with it on planes is horrific so lightweight is something I'd appreciate.
  11. Yup, I just went into the recovery options and rolled it back. Skipped a whole anime without anything happening. Weirdly enough my gpu driver is missing but I'll re-install that and keep monitoring it. Thanks for the advice
  12. Well, I am extremely embarrassed to say this but I have no clue how to do that. Also once you do it doesn't the update just force itself again?
  13. Hello guys, ever since the latest windows 10 update I've been having some weird issues with my laptop (Asus N752-VX). When I'm watching anime in kissanime and I press the forward arrow (->) or backwards arrow (<-) to skip forward or backwards things go crazy. My screen starts flickering like crazy, black to normal, my desktop gets all kinds of crazy and all of that until I restart the laptop. After that - everything is fine. While I play games (CS:GO, Forza 6, Project cars) everything is good, laptop gets warm and that's about it (which is obviously normal). When I watch movies from my HDD nothing happens, everything is smooth and fine; even tried holding the forward and backward keys for like 30 seconds - still nothing. Everything is fine with youtube as well. Now many people would think okay then it's only kissanime then just don't watch from there well .. it happened in another website which name's I can't mention for scientific purposes. Then it hit me that it's not just kissanime. Same trigger - skipped a few times and everything started flickering until restart. All of that, as best as I can remember, started happening after the last Windows 10 update. I think since then my gpu drivers (Nvidia 950M) updates once as well, but I am not 100% sure. So could anyone give any suggestions? I'm really scared that my gpu might be going bad even though for screen graphics card the laptop seems to be using the integrated one in the cpu (at least that's what nvidia control panel shows).
  14. How can I make sure it's the battery that's the problem though ? Because I read that some people changed the battery and the problem still persisted ? Or is it one of those "can't know for sure until you try" problems.
  15. Hi guys, my laptop is Asus N752VX, running on windows 10 and I've been using it for 2 years, absolutely not a single problem, until yesterday .. I was having massive fps drop in a game so I thought I'm on battery or something so I unplugged and re-plugged just to make sure but suddenly whole laptop went off. After some checking around I found out that my battery is on 0% and not charging at all even though it says plugged in, charging and the LED is in orange (not blinking). Tried some power offs and uplugs with 60 seconds hold of the power key (like some suggest) but that had literally 0 effect. Also did the device manager battery indicator thing, nothing. Battery as far as I know is non-removable, at least gotta open it and then do it but I still hope there's something easier to do to fix this. Can you guys give any suggestions ? If you need pictures of any of the battery options just say so, not sure which ones you might need.
