Hi guys Matt from 123myIT here. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the HP EliteBook 830 G8.
HP Range of Laptops – HP EliteBook 830 G8
The EliteBook range is the premium level for HP’s Business laptops. Below the EliteBook you will have the ProBook and above the ZBook range.
This is 13.3-inch business laptop comes with an Intel Core i5 11th Gen Processor which has an integrated Iris Xe Graphics. Along with 8GB of Ram and 256 GB of NVMe storage.
Pricing for the 830 G8 starts at $1759 USD for the Intel i5 CPU and goes up to $2059 USD for the i7 CPU. On the HP website, you can customize and buy. If you are going to do this, then I recommend upgrading to an i7 CPU and changing the screen to a screen with better brightness. The default screen comes only with 250 nits of brightness. You can upgrade to a screen with 1000 nits of brightness, which means the screen will be brighter. However, you should be aware that a brighter screen would also take up more battery life.
In the Box
In the box, you will get the 830 G8 itself. Along with a 45 watt power adapter. After testing the 830 G8 I found it uses around 14 to 37 watts of power. In addition, you can expect to get around 12 hours of battery life 8 hours if you select the 1000 nits brightness screen I talked about earlier. Charging the battery will take just under one and a half hours.
The 830 G8 comes with a 13.3 inch FHD LED Anti-Glare Display. With a resolution of 1920×1080 and 250 nits of brightness. The display is a bit dim however, this laptop designed to be portable, so a less power hunger display means longer battery life.
Does it Game?
In terms of gaming, I was able to get FortNite to run ok on giving up about 35 to 50 Frames per second. This would be mostly due to the Intel quad core i5 11th gen CPU as the Intel Iris Xe GPU is not the best for gaming.
The 830 G8 also has a finger print scanner, which allows you to unlock Windows with a touch of the button, but you need to add it in the customise and buy section I mentioned earlier. Along the top, you will find an integrated HD 720p webcam with dual microphone and indicator light. One of the cool things about the 830 G8 design is you can close the camera off with a sliding button.
On the right side, you have the charging port, HDMI 1.4 port, two USB C ports and a SIM card slot. This SIM card slot is cool but you will two add this as an option when you buy. You also have an indicator light to show when the laptop is being charged. The USB C doubles as a display port so if you have a USB C to HDMI adapter you can plug in an external display.
On the left, you have a security lock, two USB 3 port, Audio Jack and SC card reader. Annoyingly there is no SD card reader.
The 830 G8 comes with Bang & Olufsen dual stereo speakers and they are designed to point upwards towards your ears. The speakers sounds pretty good but missing a little bass.
The Trackpad is nice and wide. But I do find myself right clicking allot because to left click you need to press on the bottom left side of the Trackpad. For me it feels like the trackpad sits too far to the left.
The keyboard is excellent it is a delight to type on and the keys don’t bend or wobble when you press them. And it comes with two stage backlit keyboard as standard which is a nice touch.
The overall build feels like premium quality as it is made from aluminium and there is little to no flex on the laptop. In addition, it does not seem to leave fingerprints, which is great.
The display hinge folds all the way back 175 degrees; however, other laptops go all the way to 180 degrees, so 175 feels a bit awkward.
Can you upgrade it?
You can also upgrade the 830 G8 by removing the screws from the bottom cover. The system supports 64 GB of RAM so you can upgrade that along with a 1TB NV Me SSD. The WIFI card is already WIFI 6 so you will not need to upgrade that for a while.
Here’s the Geekbench CPU score and the GPU score. Moreover, when comparing the scores with the EliteBook 840 G7 model from last year the 830 G8 is much faster. However, the ProBook 640 G8 seems to be faster than the EliteBook 830 G8.
While running the benchmark if we check what temperature the laptop gets too which is around 35 degrees. You can see the heat does not show up around the palm rests. This is good design it means you palms won’t get uncomfortable when typing.
The EliteBook is a great portable business laptop. This means that typing and battery life will be really good. But this is not a gaming laptop. If you are looking for a gaming laptop you should look for a laptop with the GeForce MX or Radeon RX GPU configured.

Hi Guys Matt from 123myit here. In this video, we will show you how to Transfer data from iPhone to Android with a cable. This transfer is super easy and does not require that you use an iCloud account, which is great. The other good thing is its very comprehensive, meaning you get all your data such as SMS messages, Apps, Photos and Videos. It is also good if you just want a straight backup of your phone.
We are transferring from iPhone to Android and as mentioned, we will be using a lighting to USB C cable, which came with the iPhone. On your Android phone go into settings and down to accounts and backup. Then tap on bring data from old device. If you phone is not connected to WIFI go ahead and connect it. Once connected if you swipe down from the top you will see the application smart switch downloading. Wait for it to finish downloading and it should install.
Download the smart Switch App
When its finished downloading go back to the smart switch screen and tap continue and allow. Tap on receive data because you want to receive data from iPhone. Then tap iPhone and plug your cable into your Android and iPhone. You Android phone will detect your iPhone and then you can tap Trust on your iPhone.
Choose your data
Cool swipe up and you can choose what data you want to copy across to your new phone. This is also good to make a backup of you old phone data if you want.
Now is a good time to unselect anything you don’t want to copy across. If I go into Settings I don’t want to copy across my Bluetooth settings to I will take the tick out of that. When you have selected everything, you need tap on Transfer to start the copy.
Enter your Google Account Details
You will be prompted to add in your Google account. This is if you want to Transfer Apps from iPhone to Android. Sign in if you want that otherwise you can hit cancel and download them later.
Awesome you are done now, how easy was that. Swipe down from the top to check the progress of the data and after a few mins check, your data has copied across ok.
Other Transfer video
People if this method didn’t work for you check out my other Transfer data video which shows how to Transfer data via wifi instead of cable. There is two free ways to Transfer data in that video so it will help with all sorts of android models.
Hi Guys and Matt from 123myit here. In this video, I want to show you all the settings I use for my personal Android phone. When I setup my phone, I try to focus on three things. I want it to be as private as possible. I want it to have good battery life and I want it to be quite with no interruptions.
Aims in Android Settings
*Good Battery Life
*Silent, No interruptions
Start with a Reset
Ok Permissions for Samsung apps and services. Since Android Settigns12 was released, Google made it more secure requiring Apps to ask for permission before they can be used. These are all the Samsung apps asking for permission. I go ahead and turn these all off. Don’t worry when you start the app for the first time it will ask for these permissions anyway. But what you are doing is denying blanket access for all Samsung apps, which is a good step for privacy. So turn them off and tap agree.
Go ahead and setup your wifi.
Copy Apps and Data – Android Settings
Copy apps and data. If you want to follow one of my other Transfer videos I will put a link in the description. But for this video I don’t need to copy anything. I will add in the Google account later so skip for now.
Google Services, ok so the same apps permissions questions. But this time its for Google Apps and not Samsung. Same deal turning this off will help battery life, cellular data and privacy.
Ok fingerprint you want to set this up and I also setup face recognition which is then backed up by a swipe. Do this to keep your data safe if you lose, your phone.
Review additional apps. If you need any of these apps leave them ticked. If you don’t just turn them off. Alright cool so the first thing to do its change my wallpaper. Leaving wallpaper black is good for however for the video I will change this back to the blue and white background.
Next thing to do is to get rid of any apps that I am not using from the home screens. I will get rid of the galaxy store and I like to keep all the Google apps in one neat group so they can stay.
Timeout Screen Dimming
So the next thing I want to change is the annoying screen time out. So if you are looking at something for too long it will dim the screen to save battery life. The default is 30 seconds so I will change that to 1 mins and if I find that annoying I will adjust it again. Now is a good time to go through all the display settings anyway.
Starting from the top I like Dark mode as I find it easier on the eyes and it saves battery life. However for this video I will leave it on the light settings. And below that you have dark mode settings which means you can set a time when you want it to come on. At night might be better.
Quick Settings Android Settings
Below that you have the brightness slider bar. Don’t worry about this for now I will show you how I add that to the Quick Settings menu a bit later. Adaptive brightness I leave on. The next settings I change is the Motion Smoothness. I set this too standard and that will save battery life. However if you play games leave it on Adaptive and you will get smoother gameplay at 120 Hz refresh rate screen. Eye comfort is limiting blue light which is meant to be better for your eyes and help you sleep. So you should probably leave this on. You can add that to the quick settings as well.
Turn off Edge Panels
Screen time out is the setting we came here for. Thirty seconds is too quick for me and I find it annoying, so I will set it to one min. The shorter time this is the better the battery life. So don’t put it on 10 mins because it will drain battery life pretty quickly. I turn off Edge panels as well. I don’t use edge on the Samsung. Accidental touch protection on. Touch sensitivity off and show changing information I leave on.
Lets go back to the home screen and keep working on the icons. I remove the weather App. I generally just look out the window for weather conditions. If I need a forecast I can press the Google assistant mic and ask. If I go back and I am not on the home screen and I can access the Google assistant from holding down the home button. I find both of those Google Assistant button very handy, I use both so I will keep both.
Google Play Store Apps
The next thing I will do is installed the Apps I want to use, and I will do that through the google play store. After you log in you will get a backup to Google drive prompt. Do that if you want to back up your data. For me I leave this off. Alright go ahead and download your Apps.
Duckduckgo is a really cool browser and I will show you why I use it. Ok once its downloaded I move it to my main menu bar down the bottom of the phone. Ok when you open it up it will tell you what its doing. The internet can be kinda creepy. Not to worry! Searching and Browsing privately is easier than you think. Tap lets do it. Next Try visiting one of your favourite sites. I will block Trackers so they can’t spy on you and ill also upgrade the security of your connection if possible. Very Cool!
Burn Button – Android Settings
What’s really cool about this browser is it has a burn button at the top. If you press on that at the bottom it says. Personal data can build up in your browser, yuck. Use the Fire button to burn it all away. Give it a try now.
If I tap up the top and search for a news website in Australia called Sydney morning herald. And then Duckduckgo says. Your Duckduckgo searches are anonymous and I never store your search history ever! So again, your phone is more private. This is great! If you tap Phew and then I tap on that news website. The Duckduckgo says: Google was trying to you here. I blocked them! You can check your URL bar to see who is trying to track you when you visit a new site. Very cool! Tap high five.
Ok so now I am on the News website. In your browser you have these things called Cookies and they are used to track you. So for example on this news website it will give you five free to read articles and then after that it will try to get you to subscribe. Watch ill show you. So if I got in and out of an article eventually it will stop me from reading full articles. Best Android Settings.
So if I go to burn and I clear all my tabs and data I will be able to go back to the website and read full free articles again. And you can bookmark the website so its easy to browse to again after you use the burn button.
Cool we can quickly test our lock screen. Works fine with the fingerprint we setup. Awesome. On the second screen I keep all my apps. This is for privacy as I don’t want people to see what apps I use on my home screen. So, I will remove and apps I don’t use and download all the apps I do use. Cool I’ve removed my apps now and I will add the apps I use. Because iam right-handed I stack the apps to the right side. If you are left-handed, you can stack them to the left. This is to make them easier to reach. There ya go nice an easy to reach.
The next annoying thing to sort out is the keyboard settings. So once you have downloaded your Apps the first things you will want to do is send a message to someone right. IF you go into messages and tap the cog icon in the top of the keyboard it will take you directly to the Keyboard settings. I do not know about you guys, but I am sure everyone has a family member or a friend who sends you a text message and you can never understand it because predictive text has changed a word and auto replace has added the word before they check what they are sending. In the end, everyone is confused. My setup, I leave Predictive text on, Suggest emoji’s on, Suggest stickers off. In addition, auto replace off. But test with a friend or family member so you get it right for you.
Setup Quick settings
The next thing to setup is the Quick Settings menu. Now I just did a video on Notifications so I won’t go over that again. However if you want to see the video on notifications I will put a link in the description. Ok so the quick settings menu just allows you to set functions on your phone quickly by swiping down from the top of your phone. In addition, you can change the buttons in here by swiping down again. Now if you remember earlier I showed you the brightness bar. I am going to move that bar into the Quick Settings menu. So go back up th top tap on the three dots and then edit buttons. This allows you to arrange the buttons you use most in the Quick Settings menu.
All you need to do is tap and hold the buttons and move them into order. The buttons I use are WIFI button, Mobile data button, and sound button, and Torch, GPS and Battery saver button. When you are finished organising your buttons tap on done. Let us move the brightness bar into that menu by tapping the 3 dots and tapping quick panel layout. Go into brightness control and tap show always and then and in device control menu and show when quick panel expanded. Then the Quick settings menu will be set. Let us take a look. Swipe down from the top and everything including the brightness bar is displaying nicely.
Battery Saving Android Settings
Lets change some more battery saving settings. Go into Settings and Connections and I turn off WIFI calling. Here is an example of how WIFI calling works. I went to a beach house that was remote and did not have good 4G 5G cellular services. However, the house I stayed in had a wifi connection. I turned this on and was able to use the WIFI calling settings to make a phone call. If you do not need this service just turn it off and you will save battery life. I do not use Bluetooth so I just have this off unless I need it.
I do not use my phone for credit card payments. So this is off. If we go down to mobile networks. This will be called cellular networks in the US. In addition, go into network mode. So this Samsung phone support 5G. However, my cellular plan I am on does not. So I set this to 4G, 3G, 2G auto connect. This will save you battery life. Ok go back out and go into more connection settings and make sure nearby scanning is turned off.
Annoying Bixby Side Key
The last settings I change is the Bixby side key. You can find it under Settings, Advanced features and Side Key. I’ve already done a video for this one if you want to watch that I will put a link in the description.
Guys don’t forget to check out my other videos such as take control of your Notifications on Android Settings. And do me a favour if you know anyone who might like this video please share it will them, hit the subscribe button and smash the bell icon.
Hi Guys and Matt from 123myit here. In this video we will show you how to Take control of your notifications on Android. Guys, I wanted to do a video which will hopefully help you take control of your notifications and stop them from being annoying and distracting. Notifications on Android
Lets get started.
Quick Settings – Take Control of Your Notifications on Android
The first thing I want to show you is Quick settings by swiping down from the top. You will see a list of your latest notifications in here. This will show you a cut down version of the notification. To see more of the notification, you can tap on the little arrow. And the notification will expand. If you want to go directly into the notification, simply tap on it and it will take you directly to the service or message. Swipe down again to go back to Quick Settings.
Back in Quick Settings and down the bottom you will see two buttons notification settings and clear. If you tap on notification, settings that will take you directly to you guessed it the notification menu in the settings of your Android. And if we go back into the Quick Settings and tap on the clear button that will remove any of the latest notifications from the Quick Settings menu.
You can find that from the Home screen by going into Settings and notifications. Cool so in here we can control how our notifications are delivered. Will your notifications keep buzzing your phone and distracting you. Or can you fine tune them to only notify you on the important contacts and messages.
In the top of notifications, you have Brief and Detailed. Here’s an example of what Brief looks like. Here’s an example of what Detailed looks like. Detailed can be annoying if you are reading a website because it takes up more screen real estate and will pop up over some of the words.
If you tap included apps this will show you a list of apps that can display pop up notifications on your Android device. Allot of these will be on by default. You should go through here and only select the Apps that you want popup notifications from. A good example of this would be messages. When some one sends you a text message you will get a notification. If we got back out of there and go into Brief popup settings. And we tap on Edge lighting style. In here you can choose an Effect, Colour and duration for when you get a popup notification. It gives you a little example at the top of the screen.
Cool so if we go back out of there you have another option to show when screen is off. I usually turn this off for privacy. But if you want it to show when the screen is off leave this turned on. Under Brief popup notification you will have recently sent which shows you a list of apps that sent you a popup notification most recently. You can tap on more to get the complete list.
Do Not Disturb
Under that you have do not disturb. This is handy if you want keep you phone from disturbing you for a set period. Maybe when sleeping or studying. You can turn on the do not disturb button at the top and set your times. Toggle on the Sleeping button, the default do not disturb is 10 pm to 7am if you tap add schedule you can select whats days you want this. And below that you can set exceptions.
Messages and Conversations
Tap on Calls messages and conversations. This allows you to take calls messages and conversations from people in your contacts lists only. Therefore, it wont allow a person to call a second time within 15 mins unless you turn on the Repeat callers button. Remember this is only in the do not disturb time frame that you have set. If you go back and go into Alarms and sounds. When do not disturb is on, sounds and vibrations will be muted, so this allows you to turn them off if you want during the do not disturb time frame.
Alarms stay on
As you can see here the alarm is still turned on. This means your alarm will still wake you up even if you have the do not disturb turned on. If we go back, it will be the same thing for Apps you can set an app to still send you a notification even if do not disturb is turned on. The last settings are Hide notifications, this will allow you to hide notifications when the screen is off as well as when it is on.
You can also hide the badges on your icons. But the things to remember critical notifications about phone activity will always show up. So, badges are the little numbers beside your apps to notify you how many messages you have. See here I will turn them off.
The last setting here is Advanced settings.
