, because let's face it. This year has been about as much fun as an all day. Mrs browns boys marathon, with you strapped into one of those bloody clockwork orange chairs and believe me, you try screaming for 24 hours straight. Your voice gets out after about an hour and a half two hours and it's probably best. If you don't ask me how i know that, but yes thank the baby. Jesus 2020 will soon be confides to the history box, where it will forever fester with the dishonorable title of prettiest year of the 21st century. Remember how we all thought that 2016 was a massive bag of what naive, simple children we were, but before 2020 forever buggers right off out of it, we've still got a few more bits to survive, one of which being, of course, the frantic ridgefest. That is black friday, which is kicking off right about and now and yes, of course, black friday is just basically a means for retailers to clear all the worthless tap from their storage space just in time for all the christmas crap to get dumped in there instead. But there's always a couple of decent deals to actually draw people in that are worth noting. So this week, we're going to quickly run through some of the best early deals that really caught my eye. That should, hopefully still be going on once this video actually goes live and then, of course, we'll run through all the usual tech news, shenanigans and then plunge face first into the rancid swamps.
That are last week's viewer comments, and why am i wasting time banging on about what's gon na happen in the show why don't we just do the show so shut up present me and future me jingle expert, weekly, okay, so one of the best early black friday Deals that caught my eye this week was sorry's. Xperia 5 mark 2 bear in mind that's. A very recent smartphone only came out a couple of months ago and if you didn't see last week's show i rated it as one of my top smartphones of the year. It'S not particularly cheap at 800 quids, but it's just had 200 pounds knocked off it uh from the likes of amazon.com. You can now grab it for just 600 quid, which is bargainers. So if you've got 600 quid spare and you want a smartphone that's, reasonably compact and uh perfect for your media, shenanigans gaming, camera tech – all that good stuff, if you don't even think about it, just go bye, bye, bye next time, xiaomi is running. Some deals on its new me, 10 t handsets, which again are fairly fresh when they came out here in the uk, the last sort of month or so so. The v10t light, which gives you 5g you've, got a 120 hertz display on there and some solid all around specs that normally retails for just 229 quid, which is crazy to begin with. But then they've knocked it down even further to 199.
And when i checked on there there were even some coupon codes that would shave even more of that price, which are hopefully still uh active as this video goes live so yeah. Just what, meanwhile, the standard me 10 t has dropped from 469 to just 3' quid, while the me 10 t pro, which of course did a full unboxing and review on here on tech spur has been reduced from 599 to 4' and then, on top of all Of that insanity, apparently, if you grab any of these smartphones, you can also then bag yourself a me smart band 5 for just a tenner instead of 40 quid i mean those xiaomi are smoking some strong. I want some uh what they're, having definitely so go grab all of that tech before they come to their senses. There'S some good upcoming one plus deals as well. From november, the 23rd you'll be able to grab a hundred quid off a oneplus 8 pro from the oneplus website, with some free bullets, wireless zed. Otherwise, from november the 27th on amazon you'll be able to get 200 quid off for oneplus 8 pro, while john lewis will be offering a hundred quid off the fresh new oneplus 8t from november the 20th uh any uk peeps. Looking for a super cheap sim on the deal check out smarty, which has dropped the price of their 50 gig one month, rolling contract from 15 pounds to just 12. bona time and curry's pc world looked like they had some great black friday offers up already as Well so the likes of the garmin venue, smartwatch down to 200 quid from 300, so great for any of you fit jogging, and at the time i shot this.
The lg 65cx tele box was uh reduced as well 700 quid off down to 1 800 pounds uh. So if you want to flip it massive 4k hdr oled teddy gorgeous visuals goodbye hdmi 2.1 support perfect for the xbox series x and the ps5 job done. I'Ve got a review of the 48 inch model here on techspur. If you want convincing on how good it is that thing really buffed, my brass good and proper and final deal, i spotted that was uh. Looking rather tasty. Indeed, was the powerbeats pro true wireless earbuds down at just 175 quid on amazon still far from cheap, but they're? Definitely the best true wireless earbuds. You can grab right now again, especially good for you. Annoyingly well built gym, such as the small selection of some of the better looking early black friday deals. But definitely if you spot any great little offers yourself feel free to slap them down in the comments below and share them with the spurt community and now let's move on to the tech news and the week started off with oppo's rather interesting. Innovations event where ceo tony chen spent about 25 minutes saying things that didn't really make any sense at all. It tells us to remove selfish destruction and utilitarianism in order to recognize the conscience in our heart, so that the instinctive wisdom of the conscience can be reviewed and the power of goodness can be brought into play to do what is right before passing over to his Underlings to get our geek juices well and truly flown with some concept tech.
The most interesting thing shown off was this nifty smartphone scroll display, which can be expanded into a tablet style screen simply by yanking it at which point some hidden part of the panel unfills. Like a scroll, apparently it's, robust and completely cruise free, as well as sexy as now, this concept is actually very similar to a design that tcl unveiled way back in february this year. Ah, remember february, glory days where you could still mingle with other human beings and go to the pub and run naked through your local sainsburys and see how long you could windmill in the vegetable aisle before the security guards finally tackled you and dragged you away. Oh no wait! No, not that last one they really didn't like it when you did that, but compared with foldable phones from the likes of samsung oppa's pullout design makes much more sense to me. You don't need to carry around a brick like handset full time, but you can still get a large screen for multitasking when you need it. But of course, just like those bendy foldy phone things, if one of these scroll, like display smartphones, ever actually make it to market, you can bet your bum it's gon na be pretty bloody expensive. So you might as well start rounding up all the local orphans to harvest their organs right now. If you fancy one, the next big tech event of the week happened just yesterday when realme launched yet another budget friendly smartphone, namely this wee bugger.
Here, the realme 75g it's, essentially a souped up version of the original vanilla realme 7, except now that 90hz ips display has been boosted to 120 hertz and it's got a mediatek dimensionally 800u chipset stuffed inside there instead, which has built in 5g support. Besides that it's pretty much the same hardware as the original realme 7, so you don't get that delicious oled panel of the realme 7 pro. Unfortunately, all that upgraded camera tech, but if you're interested in the real me 7 5g definitely go check out. My unboxing right here on the techspert channel and you can also see my full review hopefully tomorrow. If i manage to get it done in time and as we all know, kiddies that will very much depend on at which point uncle spurt starts smashing back the bourbons and also everyone who watched last week's show and by the way. Thank you very much. You mad bastards for joining me for yet another one. I don't know what's wrong with your heads, but i love it, but remember that we were talking about why we're potentially selling it on a business in just a few days time and sure enough. It looks like that sale is indeed going ahead, so it looks like owner will be splitting off from huawei entirely, and that, of course, will free honor from all of those u.s imposed restrictions. So as long as no fresh restrictions are placed on honor with its new chinese consortium owners, then all should be goods and existing on the smartphones that missed out on the google play.
Services should get them and any future handsets should also come packing. The google plays and that's pretty much it for the big tech news for this week, ps5 pre order, ferraris aside and all that good stuff. So now it is time to begrudging the dip or wick and the greasy puddle of last week's viewer comments, fewer comments. So first up funker monkey says this episode of textbook weekly is sponsored by age concern and the alzheimer's society it's, also sponsored by the alzheimer's society: okay, fair play, but all right, okay, enough of the old jokes! Please i get enough of this at home. He also says people that play dark. Souls have never felt the pain of playing manic minor with a rubber keyboard. Oh my god. Yes, that was wasn't a long game, but it was bastard difficult. I think it took me about seven or eight months of non stop playing to finally see that end, game screen and boy was that worth it? I think at that point i basically just calmly ejected the tape from my spectrum went over to the window and just held the that was that uh next up alex moscow says my home office is called the 90 farts. That sounds like a potentially lethal atmosphere right there. Definitely if spock and kirk turn up with one of their little beepy gizmo things probably tell them to get right. The out of it next up noble, says confirmation that uncle spur is fury in the ball region.
Uh. No, no, no! No! No! What i said was i do not condone shaven in that general area, because it's a little bit so just roll the clip from last week – and i don't know how the rest of my gentleman viewers feel on the subject. But i've certainly never had a deep desire to have absolutely smooth porn star nads, you know by all means, keep it trimmed down there. It doesn't need to be like bloody hamster heath or anything but shaven. I don't know that seems a bit uh see i'm going for a happy medium here. I don't need a squat that's, completely bold, like a freshly plucked turkey, but neither do i want my nods to look like mr snuffleupagus so yeah, something in between 70s porn star and 90s pawn star. I don't know if any of these pawn saws were sort of a half and half, not really sure i mean frankly, it is porn. You'D, probably just be distracted by the ridiculous mullets, the entire time, either that or i'd just be on my feet, dancing to the awesome music uh and on that subject, baz anime says trust me it's no fun when the clippers snags on the sack wrinkles. Oh no. No, no no michael says our motorola's slowing down as it's the end of the year. Oh, oh, no, my friends! Oh no they're just luring us into a false sense of security. Believe me christmas eve. They will drop like 20.
More phones on us like suck that up your ball and exit paku, says i think media tech has finally caught up to qualcomm chips. They may not be faster than qualcomm, but they're almost there, i mean, certainly in the budget market. I remember you know just like a couple of years ago, see mediatek listed in the specs was like the kiss of death, but those dimensionally chip sets like the likes of the 800. U found inside of uh the old realme 75g, bringing that 5g heat to the affordable, smartphone market so great, to see. Hopefully, we'll see more from mediatek in that budget realm in 2021, and it certainly sounds like we will. Our next andrew says, hoping that 2021 brings more compact phone options like a six inch ish one yeah, i mean again. I love that six inches is technically compact compared with a slew of other ridiculously sized phones, but frankly, 2021 owes us a lot more than just some compact phones to make up for the show that was 20 20.. I think it's like jelly and ice cream and hand jobs all around basically but yeah i'll, definitely be following the iphone 12 mini sales, see how well this bad boy does and definitely if it does sell well. At least that shows that there is an appetite for smaller handsets out there, so we might see some more compact, androids i'm. Absolutely loving this thing, it's just so freaking cute, i mean look, it makes my hand, look absolutely enormous.
Finally, i know what it's like to have normal sized hands. Uh next object says: what do you call your fans, spurties spertites, i mean spurters seems to be the unofficial, nickname. Personally, i think that makes us sound like we're some sort of horrible sex cult or something which, to be fair, i'd, be kind of down with peppa butt says chris i've watched your videos for a long time, but this is the first time i've paid attention to Your teeth – this is a weird question, but are you a vampire do i have abnormally pointy teeth? I'M, not really sure i mean to be fair. That would explain why i'm so ridiculously horrendously pale all the time and why i basically immediately turn scala as soon as i even think about sunlight, let alone step out into it, but no i'm, not a vampire i'm. Just northern same difference, next up michael says chris: surely people crossing the road to avoid you as standard as a mac and down south that happens to me all the time, hello, fellow malcolm and yeah, i may smell distinctly northern but i'm. Also a five foot. Nine streak of skinny piss seriously, not even squirrels, are intimidated by me. When i walk by you know you see other people they scurry for the trees me they just stare at me with those beady soulless eyes and just like have you, you bald tosser. Next up ewan says: should i buy the s20 fe 4g? Is the battery drain bad with the exynos um? I haven't specifically tested the 4g exynos version of the s20 fan edition.
I'Ve only tested the 5g version with the snapdragon, but other samsung smartphones that i've tested with are exynos chipset chipset like the s20 and the naught 20. Unfortunately, yes, the battery has been piss poor on those things. So, on that basis, i would say avoid uh next smok file says best phone of the year, for me is the sony xperia 5 mark ii, which we were talking about earlier uh, has everything you could want from a smartphone. Apart from wireless charging, yeah, i mean just i absolutely adored. Every part of that thing made me feel all lovely and warm and squidgy inside using that thing, and it continues uh ps if you like, angry metal check out the new mr bungle, album the rage and wrath of the easter bunny demo, great name, uh. Just checking this out in uh in diesel i'm loving some of the the song names for a star anarchy up your earness great stuff, spreading the thighs of death. I would, of course, play a bit of it now, except i'll, probably get slapped for the copyright ban. Uh jobby good old youtube, so i'll save that one for later cheers next up. Gavin says with nokia 8.3 taking a price drop to 320 quid on vodafone. Would you recommend against rivals like the oneplus nord yeah sure i mean i quite like the nokia 8.3 didn't? Really do much to stand out, but the main beef was the price 600 quid was insane um, especially as it.
Finally, you know managed to stumble its way into retailers after the likes of the real me, x55g uh, the moto g5g plus all came up for 300 quid with those 5g smarts and very similar sort of specs, so yeah. If you want that stock, android experience with the guaranteed updates and, of course, the 5g and everything you can't stretch up to the pixel 4a 5g, then yeah definitely give it a look plus. Then you can annoy the piss out of everyone by saying hey, i got the james bond phone and every time you yank it out of your pocket, you could be like our next racquel says: do you have to stay this close to the camera? It'S annoying what's wrong with hill is my intoxicate and masculinity just too much for you when i fill your screen like so, can you not handle the super bushy eyebrows up this close and personal, and what about? If i drop my voice like this sploosh anyway, christ i've, i just realized i'm massively run over time uh, so i definitely need to wrap up. This is the final one. Oh! No! No! No! No! Oh god! Damn i was hoping we would get through one. Just one episode where i didn't have to do this goddamn friggin bit, but no of course the final comment just for all the f, which crap celebrity. Do i look like this week? So cole thanks cole, says i'm, believing that you are looking to likey world famous homosexualist pineapple louie.
I mean i don't even know where to start without i'm, not very good when it comes to celebrities, but i've certainly never heard of pineapple louie before but let's do a uh google's on the lads uh. Oh hang on. This is just louise spence, again, i'm typed. In pineapple louie and it's just come up with a shitload of louis spence, who, yes, i i acknowledge. I do look an awful lot like louis bloody spence. I see okay, so we did a tv show called the pineapple dance studios, apparently, hence pineapple louis right. He hasn't done anything dodgy with a pineapple, presumably, hopefully that seems like a nice guy, though he spends, i think, i've already bored you guys with this story. I bumped into him a certain e event. Once we were both at the buffet table, shoveling sausage rolls and stuff into our face turned around it's, like oh somebody's, put a mirror here: oh no it's, just uh, just another packard, looking bald guy anyway. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much for everyone who left a comment last week. Sorry, we ended on such a weird note, not that the rest of the show was any less bizarre. I apologize if i didn't get to your comment this week. Please do uh slap your comments, your thoughts, your views, your questions, whatever you fancy are down below and, of course, those black friday deals have your spot any good ones as well.
Let'S have a quick scan uh to the week ahead and uh. Next week on tuesday it's, a big poco launch, the pocket m3 uh is launched around lunchtime here in blighty, as you can expect. A super affordable, smartphone packing some pretty decent specs there i'm hoping to bring you some coverage of that. According to the teaser post, the xiaomi shed earlier this week, it will offer more than you expect so, hopefully, ice cream journey in hand, jobs and also next week, i'm hoping to bring you a full review of the iphone 12 mini, as well as some xbox series X, shenanigans as well, hopefully, my full one month, review of that bad boy will be going live and, if you're not thoroughly sick to death of the sound of my voice by the end of the week, then join me. Please do on friday lunchtime for another textbook weekly. So thanks again for joining me, please do put subscribe ding that notifications bell, if you haven't already and have yourselves a lovely bloody weekend, cheers everyone love.
