    Why is LG G Flex 2 So Cheap?

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I guess that's good for me, I find it kind of cool that it's curved.

    http://www.amazon.com/LG-Unlocked-Phone-Internal-Memory/dp/B00UFWB0FW/ref=sr_1_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1465001584&sr=1-2&keywords=unlocked+lg+g+flex+2 How about this one? I've been picking some bad links, haha. I feel like $250-$300 is still cheap for a phone like this.

    Why is LG G Flex 2 So Cheap?

    That was just the first link I found, there's plenty of others. And I still don't see how it's tied to a contract, you aren't forced to get a contract when you buy it, it's just tied to that cell services frequencies, is it not?

    Why is LG G Flex 2 So Cheap?

    Well I get that, but there isn't a cell service that's selling these phones on the internet, just random sellers. It's not like they are offsetting the low price they're selling it for. And this one is unlocked and still $210. http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-G-Flex2-H950-Unlocked-Platinum-Silver-4G-LTE-GSM-Latest-Model-N-O-/191797626743?hash=item2ca8078777:g:sssAAOSwDNdVjbaQ

    Why is LG G Flex 2 So Cheap?

    Just curious, how is it tied to a contract? Is it because it's not unlocked? I'm no expert at phones.
  6. I've been looking at phones lately to replace my original Moto X, I was looking at the Oneplus 2 since it is only $300 now and significantly cheaper than any similar phone. Then I found the G Flex 2, with a snapdragon 810 for like $200 new. I'm pretty sure it was like triple that amount when it came out. Is there any reason it's so cheap now? Do people just not want it because it's curved? I see no reason not to buy one they're so cheap.. I just don't understand why. Example: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00TRBAWLK/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new
  7. It's more expensive, doesn't have an amoled screen, and only has 2 GB of RAM. Not really sure how the chipsets compare, can't find much info comparing them, it looks like the Intel Z3560 might be slightly better (http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/06/05/how-does-intels-atom-z3580-hold-up-against-qualcom.aspx). If anyone has any input on this I'd love to hear it.
  8. I currently have a Moto X (first gen) which is starting to get a little sluggish. Recently I've been looking at new phones. I've been looking at the Blu Life One X, Huawei 5x, etc, but I couldn't find anything that seems as good of a deal as the Oneplus X for $200. I'm not too picky about features, an amoled screen (which the Oneplus X has) and a micro SD slot would be nice. Any suggestions are appreciated. Btw, I'm using Republic Wireless but am thinking of switching to Cricket.

    Check Over my Budget Build <$350

    Awesome, thanks. I was mostly worried about compatibility with the cpu and whether it would throttle the cpu.

    Check Over my Budget Build <$350

    So taking all of your suggestions I've come up with this PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($164.99 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H81M-HD2 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($39.99 @ Micro Center) Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($29.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (Purchased For $0.00) Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card (Purchased For $0.00) Case: Asus VENTO 3600 RED ATX Mid Tower Case (Purchased For $0.00) Power Supply: XFX TS 550W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($55.80 @ Amazon) Total: $290.77 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-12-26 18:15 EST-0500 Are you guys sure there is no negative to using such a cheap motherboard? (I'm also using no rebates, which is why I chose this motherboard)

    The RAM is the cheapest 8 GB available, will it cause any problems because it is faster? Will the motherboard automatically underclock it when it first starts up? Thanks for the suggestions guys! So I take it you don't find too many disadvantages of using that cheap of a motherboard? And are H81 and B85 much worse than H97?
  12. Already have a 7850 graphics card, an old Asus case, and a 1 TB hard drive. I'm hoping to spend as little as possible, trying to keep it under $350 at the most. I'm a little unsure about the motherboard, so some suggestions on that would be great!

    Need Ideas for an FPGA Project!

    Yeah that's kind of what I was thinking, probably on a smaller scale though, haha. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Need Ideas for an FPGA Project!

    Not terribly hard, but not something too easy either... I was thinking maybe a headphone amplifier with volume control and stuff (not sure how hard that would be) or a fan controller to control 5 PWM fans or so (I think I might go with this if I don't find something better).
  15. So I am in a Digital System Design class and for my final project I need to come up with a project to do utilizing my FPGA board (Nexys 4 Artix-7) using Verilog code. I can purchase additional electronics such as motors, temperature sensors, microphones, etc. There is a VGA output on the board so I could do something like a simple video game, or something with a more practical use. Any suggestions are appreciated!
