Looking for a cell phone battery, but I'd like to avoid waiting a month for it to arrive from China, if possible.

What kind of s*** ass phone do you have where you're able to change the battery?

Can you not claim a new phone through insurance? Or if you're on a contract, complain to the provider that the phone is f***ed and ask for it to be replaced, instead of ordering a replacement battery, presumably, to take it somewhere to take your phone apart and replace the battery?

Nah, it's an unlocked phone. No protection. Battery is 20 bucks and I can either replace it myself or get it swapped for 50. It's just waiting for it to float over here on some dodgy freighter.

What are you playing like? And on what spec of a PC? My rec would be sack off the notion of 4k gaming, go 1440p and high refresh rate / response rate, and play at higher settings.

Looks good. From what I understand the laptop is designed by a Taiwanese company called Clevo and they get really good reviews in general. A large number of online retailers use them in their branded laptops so you may be able to find the same laptop but cheaper elsewhere if you do a bit more searching before ordering.

Anyone bought (and recommend) a pair of knock off airpod style headphones for Android?

Knock off in the sense of copying the style, not illegal or summit.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Looks like I’m getting shafted by the Sonos software madness. Might just get a couple of amazon speakers instead.

Aye I'm quite miffed at the whole thing. Problem is that it's going to have killed the re-sale market. I guess I'll just hang on until everything breaks, and then take out my old pieces 1 by 1 and replace them with Echo thingies.

Forum's favourite are the xiaomi airdots.

Going to be a huge problem this going forward across different manufacturers.  Saw Under Armour were removing support some of their fitness wearables rendering them useless.
