    @Polymer1 its not any better with videos and streaming mate.. its just a whole lot easier to use with presentations and documents.

    I've had no yellow screen, battery life is amazeballs vs what I came from (Galaxy S3) and easily lasts a day with an hour or two of tv and listening to audiobooks for 5+ hours. Wifi on full time (no issues that I have come across) but keep GPS and Bluetooth off unless using them. Camera is lovely, but not as quick to respond to the "take picture" press as G3 or S5 (and maybe not even S3, the autofocus isn't superb) Torch gesture definitely an issue, so turn gesture control off, because why would you want it on?

    having said that, gestures wouldn't be an issue in a case in a pocket...

    the only issue i have is that some apps think it's rooted when it's not, and others think it isn't at the same time.

    Thanks :) I may go get the EZ Cast now. Does it literally mirror the screen? I had a Z10 and that has a micro hdmi which just showed what was on your screen. what I would like to do is go on some sites to watch movies but transfer it to the TV for when im watching TV with the kids.

    I've gotta say, I really enjoyed Bank Holiday Monday yesterday. Not sure if my boss did, though. He seems furious with me for some reason.

    Just checked Royal Mail website to see where the package was... half hoping it'd at least show it's been picked up from One Plus... To me surprise, it has been delivered! Can't wait to go home!!!!! :D :D :D :D

    MPs are considering renaming this Bank Holiday after the late Margaret Thatcher. I can't think of a more fitting tribute to her legacy than telling people not to bother coming in to work on Monday.

    aah, that's pretty cool, I don't actually use Chromecast other than for videos, so I guess that's why I've never had those issues! I'll look into EZ-Cast, cheers for that

    @cooperzak yep, thats exactly what i use it for. absolutely anything on the phone screen transferred to tv. be it office docs, random movie you're watching or a website. true mirroring. read my review here : amazon

    i really needed this thing for client presentations i was doing at the time. served me well. bear in mind video quality might not be top notch at 1080p but at 720p its very good.
