    I don't know about the 5.1, but I've heard positive stuff about the 6.2 and 7.2, both of which are reasonably priced. It sounds a bit spammy but take a look at what's available direct from them on their site. Obviously there's a lot of marketing speak and hard sell, but still worth a quick look. The 4.2 looks to be very good value.

    I'm at the stage where I really need to buy a new phone. I currently have a Nokia 7 Plus and it has served me well. Stock Android on the Android One programme with three years of reliable monthly security updates and two years of OS updates. I've been putting off and prevaricating for a couple of months now, but have decided I'm sticking with Nokia. I will either get the Nokia 8.3 or if I'm feeling like I really don't need to spend £400 - £500 on a phone, the Nokia 5.3, which is slated to cost under £200 and looks to be excellent value for money.

    Track list is included in the YouTube link.

    The records on the mixtape has been carefully collected and selected to present the influence of the afro-brazilian roots on Brazilian popular music. We’ve been wanting to do a mix for Iemanjá - the goddess of the sea - for a long time. Now there are many, many amazing Iemanjá songs like Conto de Areia by Clara Nunes, Dois de Fevereiro by Dorival Caymmi and Marisa Monte’s version of Lendas das Sereias Rainhas do Mar (from the London Olympics closing seremony).

    Track list is included in the YouTube link.
