great thread. I had used my old phone a a display to show a live feed of my Xiaomi camera and works a charm! I'm just like you, I can't let go of old tech :D

Actually a great idea :D I thought about doing this with a tablet with Mi Home open showing all cameras in one go, CCTV hub style. If I had outdoor cameras I would definitely consider this!

Great Thread, I am a hoarder of old tech myself, and never throw old tech away unless it is completely KAPUT, includes old consoles but I have recently brought a car and the radio unit has car play so I dug my old phone out the drawer, reset it and now I use it again every day for a Sat Nav and use an app to listen to DAB Radio stations, this saves my MI 11 from having to be plugged in constantly whilst driving.

Hello, excellent initiative. Either I give the equipment I no longer use to members of my family, or I sell them

I'm a hoarder of old tech and I dug out one of my old Android phones to connect to my car's multimedia player with Android Auto so I can listen to my own music, as my Redmi Note 9 Pro wouldn't connect to it, I also use it as a Sat Nav and have been for over a year now with out any problems. (touch wood). :D

Wiko Sunset 2 is the first Smartphone I own, I tried to install the modules to make it smoother but it seems to be too weak and the battery is also dead. I decided to keep it as a souvenir because it stuck with me throughout high school. My Redmi 6A was stolen while in college so I bought a Redmi 6 to use, it's still very good but I am currently using Mi 10T Pro so I give it back to my sister. Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime, given to me by a relative, I repaired and found good roms in the user community and installed it. My mom is using it now!
