What keywords should I search for to get chink Crocs? I know I can buy them at Tesco, but if I'm going to chink, I'm chinking big.

On another note, it's amazing that retards buy genuine Crocs for around 100 burgerbucks for a pair, for what is essentially a single mold plastic foam.

Do you think there's a chance these are actually NWS for the chink market? NWS pliers are some real quality shit, and I know they rebrand for a lot of companies. Irwin and Klein both have some, and I think there's a handful from tool truck brands. Listing is even claiming that they're Teflon coated, which the NWS ones of this color are. Finish looks like garbage with bad mould flashing and extra flecks on the metal, which is in line with NWS.

Is chink shit is becoming an issue for me?

I've spent the equivalent of half a month of my salary in chink shit in the past 3 months (which rounds to 16% of my salary per month). However I feel like most of these purchases are "justifiable" since I only buy things I'll actually need/use. I also estimated that if I were to buy these things (or ones of similar quality) locally I would spend 35 or 40% more.

What do you think?

Couldn't really tell. I spent the 4 previous years with a 2013 Moto G (1GiB RAM, 8GiB storage, no micro SD, no LTE, no fingerprint) and had a Blackberry 9300 prior to that. Using this phone is completely different in terms of performance. I don't play games nor use the camera that much but multitasking feels great.

Pros:
>battery life is good to great I get 36 to 48 hours depending on the usage.
>keep 6 or 8 apps open at all times with no lag switching between them.
>fingerprint sensor is absolutely fantastic.
>IR blaster
>paid 1/3 of what my friends paid for their phones for similar performance.
>screen is also nice

Cons
>Often feels too big because I'm a handlet
>bezels - again, blame my small hands
>camera is not the best, not really an issue for me and won't get much better in the same price range
>No fancy gimmicks

I heard that the speakers and DAC were bad but I'm not feeling it so.

I have a mi4c, and for some reason, it has never suggested any android/MIUI updates.
does someone else here have/has had this phone? can someone tell me how to update it?
also, even when it's using an old kernel, I haven't been able to root it. anyone knows if a reliable exploit for this phone exists? I don't want to replace the recovery to root it, I prefer temporary roots...
>>
>>65555618
oh, one last question: is it worth it to update this phone?
>>
>>65555618
This happens with custom MIUI-based roms. Check what the latest MIUI version for your phone is and then go to your update app to see if they match. If they don't try pressing on update. If that doesn't work the phone most likely has a custom (in your case it would be a vendor) ROM

>>65556141
My friend almost got electrocuted using a chinkshit laptop charger. And the only Chinese wifi adapater I bought shit the bed after two months. The products of virtually are reputable western company are going to be a better and more economically viable than the cheapest chinkshit knock off you can find, because it will work for longer than a month. There is also no real concept of a "middle man" because it implies that everything is otherwise identical. Even for western products made in China, which not everything is, a lot of stuff that can be sold in China cannot be sold in the US. So no lead poisoning from the paint on your toys if you buy from a western company. Any factory in China owned by a western company is subject to much more strict regulations in regards to the stuff that leaves China for the western market.

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

WHO HERE HAS BEEN TOTALLY LET DOWN BY A SELLER WHEN BUYING SOMETHING BIG AND SUPER IMPORTANT ?

Story goes i wanted Tin audio T2 for months and waited for the big sale as i had a few other things like a DAP on my shopping list. I bought them earlier on in the sale on the 28th through the NICEHCK STORE at a large discount.. THEY HAVE NOT SHIPPED YET AND ARE STILL WAITING FOR PICKUP. [pic related]

THIS IS BEYOND SHIT. i contacted the seller after 7 days and they said "sorry manufacturer is ramping up production" which means they sold me a product they did not have in stock and took my AU$43 and pretened to ship when they still did not have it. The T2 is one of the top dogs on audio budget and very popular and they obviously are having trouble sourcing it.

What the hell can i do ? To make matters worse i am moving house early in May and it probably wont get here in time. Which is another huge headache for me which i told the seller about. I just knew this would happen. Really want something that isnt exactly cheap chink shit, wait for sale, buy the cheapest price and then get fucked around by seller.

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER NICEHCK STORE ! NOT HAPPY !

>>65556770
yeah I had an issue on my first banggood purchase - an anne pro for a friend who would be going out of country. Ended up receiving it way too late to gift it, and way outside of their scheduled window, despite buying it months in advance of when I would need it
they were good enough to refund me though. Had to play hardball, and it helped that I paid through paypal, but they did refund me.

Enjoy your lead poisoning/house fire.
>>
>>65556819
>>65556840

thanks for confirming this probably going to drag on.... there is another anon here that bought the T2 and said he was waiting for pickup. Would be good if he chimes in.

Issue is THIS IS THE REASON YOU HAVE THE PROCESSING WINDOW... and i could of walked away salty about missing my AU$20 discount and bought through the WOOEASY STORE THAT SHIPPED MY ZISHAN Z3 DAP IN UNDER 24 HOURS. Now that they have pretended to ship it i am practically being held hostage. FVCK.

I fell for the TS100 meme.

Disappointed that it has ~110V RMS Coupling to ground. I thought laptop power adapters were better designed than that. Otherwise I quite like it - heats up fast and seems to hold heat relatively well. The thing is super easy to use but does feel a little cheap in the hand. The custom firmware is a really good shout should you decide to pick one up.

Temperature seems reasonable and the power rating of 40W@19V is pretty accurate

Overall probably worthy of the '/csg/ approved meme' label but I'd think thrice before touching any sensitive electronics

>there is another anon here that bought the T2 and said he was waiting for pickup. Would be good if he chimes in.
That's me. Actually, Ali's tracking shows that the shipment was cancelled lol, obviously because they haven't shipped anything. I'll probably wait till 28th and then open a dispute. Hopefully they'll send them by then so a better chance for me to get phones and a refund.

Tin T2 on wooeasy or another product ? my wooeasy Zishan DAP and Yinyoo Pro are already in country.
>>65557681
Hey man ! What store did you buy the T2 from ? lucky you got cancelled at least your not getting screwed around although wasting time and the significant sale discount is not cool. The Tin audio guys are a pretty small operation im guessing and the T2 got memed really hard on audiobudget and here so im not suprised about stock problems :/ i only waited for the sale as they are kinda pricey

Problem is its just not T2 !!! all my foam tips are totally worn out and skanky on my other memephones. I really really needed some replacement tips ASAP and guess what ? THE FOAM TIPS ARE WAITING FOR PICKUP TOO [pic related]

Mate, even if you were right about this on an economic or moral level (which you're not), people here will justify their shopping decisions by claiming they are outsmarting the Jews. If it turned out that all the importers were Peruvian natives, they'd still tell you they were outsmarting the Jews. Because this isn't about anything other than finding a greater moral justification for personal greed. Which depending on the situation, is okay. The concept works as follows:
Jews are the personification of ultimate greed, therefore outsmarting them means getting better deals for myself and keeping money out of their hands, therefore since greed is evil I am doing good for the world by being greedy myself and preventing the uber-greed-jews from being more powerful.

The point of this is, even if you were right, you can't argue with people who just want to justify getting a better deal. Because that's normal to want.

>Don't forget, he wants to keep the one he already have too.
Oh ya. That was the part that really got me too. Ballsy cunt to suggest that. At least he must have partial sense kicking in his head because he knows its shameful to ask and therefore needs a more "correct" way to ask for ridiculous demand.

Unless in some extreme case the problem is actually worth it. But he never describes the item and refers to the problem as a "minor imperfection".

I DID sperg out a bit that my new vape had a smell dent in it. But everything was completely sealed and I could tell the vape was brand new. Maybe some fucking retarded factory worker dropped it, i dont know. The point is I silently raged autistically to myself I didnt demand to be sent another unit.

I got a device with a screen, and the screen has an orange/yellow tint on the whole thing.

Totally fair, I should have been more specific. It's a ~$35 item, and I am being 100% autistic about it; but I would still prefer one that's as good as the older one I have. I've never had any issues with stuff from Ali so I just haven't had a lot of direct communication with sellers is all.

Perhaps if you can physically show the difference side by side in a picture would be good. Submit that and ask for a refund. I don't know how the haggling portion goes, I've only been fucked by a small amount and gotten full. There might be a bit of back and forth and ultimately AliExpress has executive call on it.

Show a picture and ask for what you think is reasonable. Stick to that and don't waiver. But I agree with >>65562595

I can chime in on this one, I have all 3 on your screenshot.
First is quality stuff, if you need accurate and reliable, get it. As some would say, skookum as frigg.
Second might not be the most accurate, but it just werks. If it craps out (it hasn't for me), it's only 2 dollars.
Third one I either got a defective one, or it's trash. Screen is fucking garbage, gets artifacting and the plastic case is worse than the 2 dollar one.
So depends on how accurate you want your tool to be, first is best, second is okay, don't but third

Sure everyone gets a little enjoyment from getting a good deal but that's no reason to spend time every day looking at random shit on the internet that you don't need.
The reason I decided to reply to this thread is just that I've come to realize through the years that I will actually one day cease to exist, I knew it since pre-school but I was never truly cognizant of the fact. So I've been leaning more and more towards managing my time and trying to do things that I find fulfilling and rewarding, I'm not perfect though I still browse this shitter but old habits you know.
Anyways the point is that I just want you guys to truly introspect and think about what you're doing here. At the end of the day if you can truly say that you find what you're doing fulfilling then don't let me or anyone else tell you otherwise, just make sure you actually enjoy your life while you still have it.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mini-Locator-USB-Car-Charger-S9-Tracker-GPS-Real-Time-GSM-GPRS-Vehicle-Tracking/32847951448.html
It works as a phone charger and takes a sim card so that you can track you car if it gets stolen, the problem is that it is not a GPS tracker but a LBS (Location Based Services) tracker. That means it is trianglated off the mobile phone masts and is accurate to 1.5km (depends on provider). GPS would track to within a few meters.

I ended up getting a proper car GPS tracker.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/mini-waterproof-gps-tracker-for-car-motorcycle-scooter-vehicle-truck-real-time-online-tracking-and-monitoring/32536233599.html
This one actually has GPS and is more accurate than that shitty LBS.

i have the one on the right, its really great, for the less than $4 that i paid for it is well worth it.
the one in the middle should work for simple measurements (minimal resolution of 10 mv/ma, no storage for power/capacity ratings). there might be cheaper versions of it, that price seems a bit on the high side for what it is
quite the opposite of >>65564935 i guess, and if you want to do data logging, which is the only point i see in favor of the first one, you might want to look at other stuff like a proper multimeter instead that. you dont wanna second guess your readings/device.

is the first one really only 10mv resolution or is it 1000 count?

So my mitu plush arrived with a slightly fucked up red star. It is the only defect it has, what do? I doubt there is much point in disoute as its more Xiaomis fault for this manufacturing mistake.
Maybe I can fix it myself with some red color? idk.

This is going to be expensive for PostNord.
Why the fuck does the northern people keep cucking themselves. This cannot possibly be cheaper than actually delivering the chink shit?

From what I find the UM24 has 0.01V/0.001A resolution and the UM25 has 0.001V/0.0001A resolution

with those specs (max 24v) and the price they are asking (those are decent chink multimeter prices that can be modded to serial datalog) does not sound like a good deal, at all
the middle one fits the chink shit label nicely, easy and functional

Swedes should start ordering massive amounts of $0.01 SIM slot openers or $0.06 balloons and then ignore the payment requests from Postnord

Thanks anons. I've messaged the seller to say the number doesn't work and when he comes back with a weak excuse I will dispute
>>
>>65565923
and according to the article, and jewgle translate, postnord will have to pay to ship that shit back using _the_same_ shipping method each package used on the way there. 80% of those will go by boat, the rest is probably air mail. i would bet my left nut that this is more expensive than just delivering that shit

My stealth bluetooth earpiece came in. And like I predicted I am finally competent enough at my new job to wear it while getting all my duties done. Apparently only lasts 3-4 hours, but its all I need.

For podcasts only so I dont care about sound. Listening now and no crackles or static. Not amazing quality but nothing aggravating. Sounds fine I guess.

Swecucks are basically chinking the chinks by adding a large fee and sending air mail back by boat/surface mail so they have to wait 4 months to get their money back.
Whew lad I am not sure who are being the bigger chink jews right now.

Need a new Note 4x because I'm a dumbass and dropped mine, and now it's rebooting and I can't tell if it's just a software fuckup or because of the cracked screen.
Anyway, when I got mine on 11/11 it came with an opened package and the chinks installed their filthy global software over the original Chinese ROM, and it took fucking ages for me to get it working, so I'd rather just buy one, untouched, with a Chinese rom if possible. Anyone know where to find one?
Miku edition too, if possible (Even though I know full well I could just take the case off my old one)

Find a seller with the most orders on aliexpress and ask them to keep the box sealed.
That's how I did it.
>>
>>65566506
Buy from Ali seller and tell them to ship it untouched. I asked my rn3p seller and it was in original seal when it arrived. I thought they stopped or were unable to do this when unlocking got harder?
>>
>>65566567
>unlocking
They just do a dirty flash using fastboot, no way they're going to unlock the device, especially when one account can only unlock one device a month and has to be attached to a device for at least 3 days before it allows unlocking.
>>
>>65566541
>>65566567
I was thinking "just ask them", I'm glad to hear you guys did it and it worked fine.
Fingers crossed they only flash them to order, and people still have unflashed ones sitting in stock.
I'll give it a try, thanks anons!
>I thought they stopped or were unable to do this when unlocking got harder?
From what I saw when I was unfucking my note 4x, it still seemed pretty easy back then (But by now it's a relatively old phone)
>>
>>65566608
That means no harm has been done and you can just flash any official one over it. Why even care then? Btw, you cannot flash fastboot ROMs without unlocking you niglet, I hope you mean EDL deepflash thr ROM.

Yeah I meant EDL, I've only vaguely researched the whole ordeal so I keep mixing up terms.
>>
>>65566682
Yeah I am very experienced in unbricking Xiaomi and even have cables (Micro-B+C) to force the phone into EDL.
Actually all you have to do is to modify their scripts and you can flash a pre-unlocked bootloader, this makes it much more easier to unlock/update firmware as it will most likely re-lock every time you flash official ROM xyz. Anyway have fun researching this, as per my experience other providers like HTC are way more friendly to use as a dev due to these weird restrictions, but a Xiaomi works well if you know your stuff. I am currently using mine for Oreo dev.
>>
>>65566608
>They just do a dirty flash using fastboot
Can confirm, mine was a mess when it arrived
>>65566643
Mine refused to boot the rom they flashed, refused to load into any of the recovery tools because the bootloader was still Chinese trying to load a global recovery and would sigfail, once I did load the global recovery it refused to work with any global roms, so I had to flash it back to a full Chinese rom, then finally, onto global, BUT PROPERLY THIS TIME.
That's why I fucking care, three hours fucking wasted. I bought a 4x because I was sick of having to remove bloat every time I bought a new Zenfone 2, and thought I'd get a nice, fresh, bloat-free experience that worked out of the package
GUESS AGAIN MOTHERFUCKERS

It was around 4 bucks or so (with shipping).

The reason I bought this is because I wanted to convert my bike to chink disk brakes, and for that I'll need a few modifications and new hubs that I can install the brakes on. I could probably get it done for under 40 bucks.

But since then I decided to postpone this project, since disk brakes aren't exactly worth 40 bucks on my junky bike anyway. But this freewheel remover still could come in handy one day.

Everything after the Nexus 4 was a clusterfuck of compatibility issues and specialised protocols that no-one other than google ever adopted, plus no SD.
I'm happy with my Nexus players, but the 5, 6, 5x, 6p always confused me. These days, batteries that small plus power-hungry SoC's compared to contemporary chips, I'm happier with something like the N4X, relatively light-powered chips, a lower screen res, and a fuckhuge battery make for a nice experience.

I decided to just install all the cheap chink shopping apps in one go, got AliExpress, Banggood, DealExtreme, GearBest, and Wish. Got my "freebie", and ordered another ~$2 shipped laser pointer from Wish, but are you just screwed if something isn't right? Are you stuck doing a charge back and getting your account banned, or do they have any customer service?

Also what's the deal with paying via the app for Wish and AliExpress? What's wrong with it?

I won't order anything I actually need from Wish, but if I take gambles like that, and it arrives wrong, do they have enough customer service to just issue a refund? I'll gamble and chink the chunks if the worst case scenario is a free USB cable instead of a cheap phone.
>>
>>65567311
Wish is a scam. The listings that aren't a scam are overwhelmed by the ones that are. Not worth the time to suss out what is legit.
>Also what's the deal with paying via the app for Wish and AliExpress? What's wrong with it?
Unless I'm mistaken I'm pretty sure that meme was just referencing "PC Master Race" type stuff. Like its saying a faggot would use an app a real man uses a desktop. Its just a meme. Stuff is usually 1% cheaper or whatever if you use the app.

Honestly don't know. Haven't bothered with the garbage site. You can't even browse it without registering or having a facebook or whatever BS. Just seen tons of people and videos etc showing its a scam. Or at the very least they make no effort to take down scam listings.

If you WERE going to do Wish I'd only do it through PayPal (assuming they take PayPal) that way you can use PayPal to force a charge-back rather than have to deal with Wish customer support at all.

Ali might be cheap shit but at least they actively take down counterfeit and fake listings and from personal experience Ali Buyer Protection is essentially made to side with the buyer assuming you can actually supply video/picture proof of issues.
>>
>>65568340
Most likely after this a bunch of chinks are going to boycot Sweden.

It's still a fucking waste, they might as well burn it all rather than send it back.
>>
>>65568365
Isn't it like 13 Euro per package they want to charge? It's bullshit either way, but I wonder if they just said fuck it we're doing a 1-time reduction of the fee to 2 Euro (or whatever) to try and reduce the 400,000 a bit and still collect some sort of fee.
>>
>>65568365
But what if Sweden sets a precedent and other cuck EU countries follow suit? I don't want chink shit to die.

Should I stock up on the most cheapest and popular items and sell them after they introduce fees?
>>
>>65568467
It's 7,5 euro per package + 25% of the declared value in VAT. if the package is worth more han 150 euro then it's 12,5 euro +25%.

It was the Swedish government that enforced this on Postnord, most likely it's about muh taxes so that they can pay for gibsmedat for all the socialist voters and kebabs.

If people can buy the chink shit directly then they will miss out a lot of opportunities to milk people of more taxes like payroll taxes etc...
>>
>>65568512
there's a re-negotiation coming up in a couple of years, I doubt anyone will care to act before that. The Swedish government are just a bunch of retarded cunts.
>>
>>65568555
Oh I definitely understand why a government would want to do this. It just seems so stubborn and short-sighted. I'm guessing most of this 400,000 was bought before this was a known issue? Or is it possible to get packages in without paying the fees?

A good chunk of that 400k must be 1 or 2 Euro purchases, so having to pay 7+ Euro defeats the purpose of the purchases in the first place. No one will pay it.

The fee is ridiculous either way, but I'm suggesting that they might get people to grudgingly pay if they didn't do it in such a stupid manner.
>>
>>65568620
>The fee is ridiculous either way, but I'm suggesting that they might get people to grudgingly pay if they didn't do it in such a stupid manner.

The part is that they just decided how much money that they wanted. The fee is supposed to not only pay for the customs declaration for the packages, but also the return of the unwanted ones.

But what's also so enraging is that Postnord is slow as fuck. I am almost at the point where I am willingly to pay DHL express to have all my chink shit get here on time.
>>
>>65568467
they are fucking stupid, they could have easily asked for a small monthly fee of a couple of bucks to allow outside packages to be delivered (and even this is a total idiotic idea, just a less idiotic one)
i sure hope the anon with the styrofoam balls has a backlog of that shit coming
