Re: Iphone repairs my opinion.

He did not say not good, he said the ones I mentioned take knocks better. I bought Xiaomi on this basis, it was good of him to advise me as he likely know as he replaces same. He does not sell phones and I bought on other shop.

Re: Iphone repairs my opinion.

I went to get my Samsung smartphone screen replaced to be told cost 110.
What surprised me is the repair guy said Samsung screen not good.
The two phones he suggested were Xiaomi and Huawei.

Re: padron

Sid/Gerry,
What happened here is I bought bike and then needed transfer, I bought/paid private so all ok.
I do understand they need address but just want this done easy.
I am hoping my whole life be scrutinized over a 32 year Moto.

Regards.

Re: tv

It's your choice. I did say it was for optimum viewing. If you sit 12 ft away from a 4'K TV you have wasted your money as you would see exactly the same detail on a HD TV. If you get eye strain or a headache you need to go to Specsavers! Sid Of course its my choice but that is not what the conversa...

tv

I was talking to a guy last evening in a bar, he works in the tv industry.
He said the optimal viewing distance for tv is diagonal X 4 which i found interesting.
This is approx distance in my house but i always thought my tv too small.
What's opinion of experts here?

Just to make sure I checked their fees and charges and it says both debit and credit cards incur no extra charges. https://www.easyjet.com/en/terms-and-conditions/fees So its an adm...

Re: Credit card fees for car hire

When you book a flight, you are not charged fees if you use a Debit Card but are if you use a CC. So I think it is lawful to charge on CCs. Don't know about VAT though This has changed and you don't pay extra now, At least I haven't when booking with companies such as Ryanair, Easyjet or BA. My und...
