A Very quick tip

May 7th, 2016 | Posted by Kevin Wright in Features - (Comments Off)

Have a look at the photo below for a good deal on some tech if you are prepared to do a tiny amount of work, and can pass a credit check.

Very, (which is probably due to them being Very Expensive) are offering 20% off your first *credit* order, but don’t worry about interest charges, as you can either use 3 months interest free or maybe even 12 mths buy now pay later, and if you clear if before that is up, you pay no interest all all.

So I just opened an account, got £1000 limit to spend right away, and ordered a Galaxy S7 for £459 brand new. It starts off at full price of course, but if you use the code at checkout (be careful its easy to miss that step) its takes 20% off.

You can’t use it for Apple stuff, and there are other exclusions. It runs to the end of July 2016 currently.

Smartphone Riches to Rags Day 2

April 28th, 2016 | Posted by Kevin Wright in Features - (Comments Off)

Errr, there was no Day 2!

I had yet to try the SU6 in the car, so set off for work with Google Maps guiding me, and a podcast playing, both over my car Bluetooth. I had actually established that the forward and back controls on the steering wheel worked how I like them, which is 30 seconds forward or backwards. Usually when this works, all other BT functions work fine.

One thing I really like about iPhone is that when I press “Media” on the car head unit, the iPhone this pretty much always restarts the audio of what I was listening to last, and the SU6 will not do this, (most Androids don’t) so it means reaching in your pocket or touching the screen while driving to start the audio. But that is not the deal breaker here, what happens is that every single time the Google Maps gives a spoken direction, it sets the audio back 30 secs, even though the podcast audio was playing under the maps voice. I know you can change this, but I simply turned the car around yesterday and went back for the iPhone!!!, experiment over for now.

Harsh? Very. There are almost certainly ways around it, but I simply can’t be arsed. The SU6 remains a fantastic buy, but its back to being my second phone, and when I go back to the iPhone, for a few days at least, I can not see myself ever leaving iOS as my main device.
