Have this phone.
GOOD - looks nice, fast enough (to begin with), nice screen size, slim, cheap, sd slot.
BAD - battery, mine has bent in my pocket, slows down over time, 16gb.

You get what you pay for at the end of the day x
does android pay work on this phone?

read that some phones with NFC don't support android pay due to their custom ROMs...
The non upgrade price is 89.99 + 10 compulsory top, ie £100.

Most won't qualify for the top up so need spend the extra. You can do what you like with the 10 top up, use it, give out to someone, flog if on eBay. A great phone for the money.

How do you upgrade to a Pay As You Go phone? My contract with O2 is running out next month, can I just upgrade to this deal for £79.99 (+tenner top up) and let my contract run out without signing a new one?
Because the normal price of this handset on the CPW website is at £159.

used this for around 2 months now, purchased from CPW, great phone in terms of speed and usability, lots of nice features like double tap to start, make a letter eg C and the camera opens, lovely well thought out presentation, decent screen, IMO looks really nice in white and well built, comes with lollipop but i believe it can be upgraded to marshmallow, BUT the battery is poor, sure is lasts of you don't use it! if you don't mind regular charging go for it otherwise look for one with a better battery

also CPW phones come unlocked so its plug and play with any Sim, except apple phones which i believe do come unlocked but the fist SIM which is inserted is locked to that network.

It's not great but not bad. Not to be knocked at £4.99 for a spare phone. Or just set it up as a dashcam with a free app and a cheap windscreen mount from ebay. That's what I did with a recent cheap phone deal. Doubles as dashcam and emergency phone with a PAYG SIM in it.
the resolution and quality of that camera would make it one awful dashcam. you actually want to be able to see detail in the video, blurry nonsense wont be useful.

I voted cold because it looks like either the manufacturers or airtime providers have jumped on the bandwagon that people must have the latest phone and are prepared to pay for it. It would be interesting to see how much an S7 costs in some of our European countries where they earn half or even less what we do. A few years ago I had an S2 which was the top phone at the time on android. I was paying £20.00 a month for 24 months with unlimited texts, unlimited data, 300 mobile minutes and unlimited landline minutes. Whilst today's S7 has improved having a better camera, processor etc etc if you want to ring, text or email someone it is no better than anything else on the market. At one time only Apple commanded a premium price but now they are all very similar. For me I will stick to my G4 costing £320.00 + data package. Far better options buying the phone outright because if you want to change it you can. Top end phones are costing nearly double today what they were 6 or 7 years ago. I don't think wages have quite gone up by the same percentage. If you can afford it, great but personally I prefer not to waste my money on the latest tech and wait until it comes down in price. This is a good deal for a business user or someone who is self employed but I don't need 6gb data or unlimited minutes. From 7am in the morning I am focused on going to work until 6pm. My boss pays me to work for him and not checking facebook or whatever on my phone and when I am at home the wifi is free. The more people subscribe to £800+ deals the more the airtime providers will continue to exploit us.
smelladeal
When you consider the average UK wage (median) is just over 500 quid/week gross, 800+ for a phone over 2 years is a huge investment. Use caution. (_;)

£8 out of 500 per week is a lot? That's 1.6% of your weekly salary on something you spend so much time and can still get a decent price ~£80 when you sell it 2 years later.

I voted cold as you can get the S7 Edge from Vodafone via mobiles.co.uk for the same monthly contract BUT 100 upfront.

as a guide...30 people votes hot on this, so as long as a couple thought it was a good deal and got themselves a saving then that's :)

Edited By: RCUK on Jun 12, 2016 19:54: xyz
I have still yet to see a deal for an S7 attract any serious heat. Only thing I can think of is the cost as Samsung do make a great phone. £800 over 24 months is a lot to pay. Technology tends to come down in price as time goes buy but for some reason with smartphones they get dearer year on year. Such a shame that Samsung have priced on par with apple as am sure they should be a lot cheaper.

rocket dropping.... still expensive
I got a p8 last year on that id mobile deal that went hot but only a few people got them (failed credit checks etc). I found it laggy from the get go. kept it a year, contract just ended and was less than the phone sim free so can't grumble. The earpiece failed and Huawei replaced it with a brand new phone because the p8 is covered by the VIP replacement service which was nice. I'm in the market for a new handset, finding this Nexus 5x a little slow but my experience of the P8 has put me off the P9 tbh. Just my tuppence worth anyway.

Hi is this any good? i have lg g4 is it worth getting one?

I just returned mine as the battery life was terrible despite doing a factory reset a couple of times as suggested in a few forums.

Also, not a big fan of the interface which is a replica of iOS. If I wanted an iPhone, I would buy one!
great price without having to pay for the goody bag and you can get one in store which is good for returns

Terrible deal. The contract is worth about £50 and you can get the phone sim free from amazon for £340 (and it will only get cheaper). So about £110 down without even considering how thoroughly awful CPW are.
What about if the customer(s) don't use alot of data and the minutes are fine as these days people usually text...
Still quite expensive for that amount of data and minutes.

Do CPW stopped doing Virgin upgrades?
You can now only do Virgin Mobile PAYG upgrade orders in store or by phoning the number on the web site. The Virgin deals are no longer the cheapest. For example the Huawei Y3 is now £15 on Vodafone and £20 on Virgin. I prefer the Huawei Y3 to the Alcatel 3 3 5 because its screen is half an inch bigger which is really important.

A active sim card, which your network allow a upgrade on. I guess you haft to have spent so much with them. But you can try and see if you qualify for another upgrade. I done two now, and no extra money on the sim. lol Happydays

Hi jorock,

I can't and couldn't get this to work. Do you happen to have another link?

When you first posted this, I followed the link (on Get Deal) and the two links you posted on the other P8 Lite thread. I did indeed see the phone for £75, but the price jumped when I tried to follow through with the order. Then the links stopped working (they go to the cpw homepage rather than to the specific deal).

cheers,

If you got one on contract, what contract do you have? I've been on SIM only for a long time now but I'm pretty sure that the higher the monthly cost of your contract, the cheaper you will pay for the handset. A free flagship handset on a good contract. So, to get the phone for £449 (I watched the G4 tumble as a handset only price and bought one last October and love it by the way) you must be on a low monthly contract.

Just checked Amazon, and the G5 handset only is also £449. You don't need a contract to get the phone at that price but as long as you're happy with it then that's what counts.



OP confused me as well but ​it is also available sim free at carphone warehouse for £449.
isn't this cheaper at Voda with a third party unlock?
This is a good phone hardware wise. If you go for it on contract then fair enough. However, I think you would be silly to buy this handset only vs HTC 10, iPhone 6S or S7 or S7 Edge. It will not hold it's value due to the build quality vs the other phones or even the Nexus 6P. The friends are cool but hard to get hold of an expensive in the UK. I reckon in 3-4 months this will be sub £300 due to poor sales vs S7 and Edge and even the HTC 10, also because at that point the new Nexus and iPhone will be due.

Definitely expired for Virgin. There seems to be only a Vodaphone £99 upgrade left now for the white & green version. The problem is that CPW seems to no longer have a dedicated "upgrade search" for PAYG phones on their new website, & they look to have no "PAYG upgrade deals" for any phone with Virgin, doing deals only with O2 , Voda & EE.
Have expired... (or at least tried to.)

That's more than possible... Even John Lewis & Argos are now selling this version sim free for £130.

Several of the apps I have installed such as BBC I Player, Camera MX, VLC, Phogy etc, have installed themselves on the SD card without my asking & seem to work fine…Even though the SD was an old Samsung class 6 32 GB I had lying about. I have formatted the card as phone memory & have had no trouble accessing it & moving files with a Windows PC, (people online claim it to work fine with a 128 GB SD card as well but am happy with mine so far) although it is annoying that Marshmallow forces you change to data from charging USB every time you connect with a cable.
Most of the professional reviews seem to rate the 1 GB version as a very well balanced device, & on the odd real world U-Tube 1 & 2 gig side by side comparisons they look to operate at equal speed with most apps.
So far so good with this phone, with the only problems being… A slightly more sensitive screen than I am used to, opening the odd app on me rather than scrolling through... Its shut down takes much longer than I am used to, but as it boots ok I don’t mind it going a bit Windows 10 on me, & when I cleaned the cache after system update I thought I had bricked it as it takes minutes rather than the seconds of my old phone.
With all my apps installed (most of them never used) I have just over 2 GB free on internal storage & 27 GB left on card. Its snappy and does more than I need it to so for £80 am well pleased.
