  1. Destiny 2

    Great, my Battle ID is bovine3dom#2192. Beazley and Jensen have it too. The game handles replaying the story missions quite well. You need power level 260 to do the raid, I think.

    What's your Battle ID?

    Anyone have Destiny 2 too? Beazley and I have it; I believe the missions mostly need 4 people.

  12. iPhone vs samsung

    That's probably more to do with the way YouTube et al compress things - they give "4K" video a much higher bitrate, so you get far fewer compression artefacts, and so the video looks much less dreadful. As for VR: get a Vive / Rift and Onward and be my friend please I've absolutely no idea about Android VR things. TheBlu is pretty cool for Vive - so anything like that, I guess.

    Was it a serious question? 4K on a phone is probably indistinguishable from 1080p at most RL distances. But I hope people continue to buy them because the technology is important for VR. Edit: *provably. Resolving power of 20/10 vision is 291 microradians, distance from phone to eye at minimum about 20cm, |2160,3840| pixels across diagonal, gives you about 10 inch minimum size screen to benefit from each pixel. 1080p is 5 inches - i.e, that's as good as you'll ever get on a phone.

    I only need one, YMMV. I have a Wileyfox Swift, cost me ~£100 a year ago and it's totally adequate. It even gets monthly security updates. Other decent brands are Xiaomi, Huawei, Motorola; Lenovo, Asus, Cubot & Dogee if you're feeling brave. Edit: if you're buying a phone from abroad (particularly Xiaomi), make sure it supports the radios that your network uses. Edit2: a list of all the well-reviewed phones that Amazon sells sub £200 is here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=sr_nr_p_36_6?rnid=389035011&rh=n:560798,n:!560800,n:1340509031,n:5362060031,p_72:419153031&qid=1506784272&bbn=5362060031&low-price=0&high-price=200

    Please don't spend more than £200 on a phone... diminishing returns kick in pretty hard at around £100. Save the crazy money for graphics cards and 4K displays. Edit: and keyboards with nipples
