So my 64gb micro SD has 12gb videos, 4gb music, 5gb photos, 0.5gb docs, 1gb other media and the rest some apps. Hmm so I need over 20gb... well over the 5gb free. How does that work then?
Also backing up to PC may take a while but imagine restoring 20gb from the cloud...would take hours on a 12meg connection :o
£0.79/month for 50Gb

It's never been a problem for me as even a full restore from iCloud on a brand new device has only taken me ~30 minutes to reload (mostly) Apps and Photos.

It's just handy that incremental backups to iCloud "just happen". You can omit things (including photos, video and music) from iCloud backups - if it makes more sense to do them manually.

For known huge quantities of anything I would use iTunes.

Worst network! Dropped calls! Missed calls! Disabled mobile data! Signal problems! The list goes on.....
You can now get cheaper contracts with more allowances.... why are these still in business ?
But u can't call the EU country you are in using your minutes, it will be extra, unless your plan includes calls to EU countries.

Looking at contracts with this or the previous XA version to replace the gf's increasingly buggy Smart Ultra 6, with something smaller.

can I just check performance wise that this is a step or two above the SU6?

VERY interesting video. The 130 quid ZUK Z2 against the 600 quid Samsung S8 in a real world speed test. Now tell me that 4GB hasn't been optimised properly!! PS I couldn't get a video where the ZUK Z2 is tested against a Sony of any description. But I'm sure the performance of the S8 would blow fanboy's ZX out of the water. https://youtu.be/w03QyUXHW5Q

Typical uninformed person.

Sony XZ premium makes circles around S8+ and iphone 7+

Other than the camera i think for £200 the Lenovo P2 wipes the floor with this.....


well, (owning a p2) the P2 has a really fragile screen. mine broke while it was in my pocket. 3 and lenovo abysmal support. i wouldn't buy anything from Lenovo again... but it's battery was amazing.

iPhone 7 is £600 plus and is 720p

LOL. Quoting an iPhone to justify a Sony price. Sony are second only to Apple in the overpriced mobile stakes, but to be fair to Apple some of the asking price is due to their exclusive OS whereas Sony use good old android so absolutely no excuses for their prices...

Think I'll stick to my 130 quid Lenovo ZUK Z2 (4gb RAM, 64GB internal, 5 inch FHD screen, fantastic fingerprint sensor snapdragon 820). Direct from China so no real warranty (how many mobiles has anybody here had that have gone wrong in their first 12 months?), the camera won't be as good as the Sony but if that spec had a Sony label you'd probably be looking at a thousand quid. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask (pirate)

Got mine, looks brand new.

Only 1 month apple warranty left but I imagine for the refurbishment they have done what apple does and replace everything except the logic board as I checked the cycle count on the battery and its only at 13 which to me says its a new battery been installed.
The screen looks new along with the outer case and Touch ID sensors as there are no marks on them at all


How do you check for the battery cycle?


There's an app you can download on mac called coconutbattery, when you plug the iPhone in it displays all the battery details and charge cycles ,, for reference my gf iPhone 6s she's has since October last year has 170 cycles on it so that's how I know it's a brand new battery
Anyone got 125gb?

Still can't decide , this or the g4, the bigger screen on g4 and faster processor sways it but the ghosting problem is a gamble. If the g5 had the bigger screen I'd go for it.
Or you could wait a month or so for the Nokia 5 or Nokia 6. Nokia 6 has a 5.5" screen like the G4, the Nokia 5 is a 5.2" screen. I have a Moto G4 as we speak, I've really liked the phone on the whole, but Lenovo's updates to the software are pretty much nonexistent. Up until just a few weeks ago, it was still on Marshmallow and July 2016 patch level... in March 2017. That's pathetic. They initially promised Nougat by end of the year, it came over 3 months late. Whether I will ever receive Nougat 7.1.x or above, I have my doubts.
Moto G4 and G4 Plus are great hardware for the price in my opinion, but terribly let down by software updates and Lenovo customer service. Personally, I like my G4 as I said earlier, but I will be looking to purchase the Nokia 5 or Nokia 6 within the next few months and keep the G4 as my backup phone. I doubt I'll move to the G5. Nokia have promised quick monthly security patches and OS updates. They also ship with Nougat 7.1.1 64-bit, not 7.0 32-bit like the G5. Build quality is supposed to be brilliant on the Nokia 6 as well (Moto G4/G5 are pretty damn good as well though). We'll see if Nokia can keep to their word. If they do, other than the Pixel line, they will be the only ones out there with stock Android, great build quality and fast updates. I hope they can pull it off and I'm willing to give them a go.
It will be interesting to see what pricepoint Nokia will go for when setting the price of their new smartphones

is it likely one will be under £150?
Yes, the Nokia 3 should be below £150. The Nokia 5, only a slim chance, I would think it will be priced around the Moto G5 price range at launch (£150-£175 ish). The Nokia 6, nope, that will be considerdably higher than £150.

out of stock on the giff gaff website at the moment
I'm coming to the end of my Tesco 24 month contract, and want to go SIM free - my Samsung S5 has been really good for me, would moving to this device be an 'upgrade' as such...i am not a power user, just need the usual apps, and am pretty keen on it being a decent camera and reasonable performance in mapping etc.IN short, how does this compare to the S5?

The package works out at £23.07 per month,less thann £25 per month for great phone and 7gb - most new phone packages around that price would have 1gb or less, and not as good a phone, albeit the phone would be new
£517.00 for a phone described as excellent is a lot of money to pay for a second hand phone and if I was buying a phone second hand the condition would need to be excellent. Coupled with a lowly £6.00 30 day rolling contract option from Virgin the price isn't far off buying a brand new phone from mobiles.co.uk with EE.

Too high a price as the heat suggests.

Who'd be that daft to buy an iPhone 5S..I mean SE for £390
You'd be able to get refurbed 6S for around that price.
I'm so sorry...I was terribly wrong! The 6S is actually cheaper and comes with 12 months warranty from the sellers. This particular one is new, unlocked and has 12 months warranty. Prices £381.95
But there are loads more who are selling from £250 onwards. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401283385071

So you are comparing a 2nd hand 16gb 6s with a brand new 64gb SE with full Apple warranty? Completely different and a stupid comparison.

I just looked out there in the contract market and have seen an O2 1gb unlimited minutes, text refurb iPhone Se 16gb for £15/mth with £15 upfront. Ok the data is low, and it is a refurb (used) but I am currently paying for the £10/mth 1gb goody bag alone. Maybe the best bet is to get the 399 iPhone 64se unlocked from johnlewis and just jump about on the 30day deals.
Sim only and buying phones outright
Thats what I done years ago, got my fingers burnt when I went 12m sim only EE last year when the network started falling to bits here, thankfully they admitted the whole area was affected by a hardware upgrade needed with no known fix date. I've recently moved to a 30 day Vodafone sim and I have 4G indoors :D

I am just thankful EE was straight up, we have all been there fighting to get out because of network signal/performance changes at the same account address.

Do it! I am away to go through retentions at Vodafone at the end of this month, if I don't get what I want I will be off to Tello (Three) unlimited's & 100MB £8, bargain :DX)

I've used a friends Moto G4 play and was surprised that was pretty fast! compared to my standard Moto G4 with 2gb ram

Get the Moto G4 play for under £100.00 - its very responsive & a decent size in the hand - looks and feels nice
Using the G4 Play now, Great phone. Fast and nippy. Upgraded from Moto E.
+1 for G4 Play. Got one for the lad. It's a cracker.
chancooluk
It's a reasonable price for a SIM Free version, but I really can't recommend this phone. It's so slow in use that it borders on unusable at times when it really shouldn't be (such as taking 10 seconds to bring up the call answer option when a call is coming in...).
The Moto G4 Play is often available on the Motorola website for £79. It has an almost identical design to the E3, but includes a faster processor, 16GB Storage (vs 8GB), slightly better cameras and NFC.

That settles it then. G4 Play it is.

Hi, if this is cold, could anyone explain why it is cold, please. Thanks.


It's only £359 for 'good' which is the last tier of condition. 'Excellent' is £419.


It's also nearly two and a half years since the 6s was released, it's getting long in the tooth at £359.00 for a second hand phone, especially how specs have come on in the last couple of years. When you look at what £300:00 will get you on a brand new android, with guarantee, support and update I'm sure you'll realise why it's not a great deal.
Does it comes with warranty ?

Well I bought this deal. And for anyone who wondering, the phone is brilliant (if you're after a 4.7" android at least).
Some notes:
It's faster than my old 5X. To move around apps, and take photos etc.
The battery is great, it lasts from 8am to past 11pm with my usual very heavy usage.
You can customise everything, so I've stripped it right down to the stock Android, (Google launcher etc.)
The lower resolution screen is not noticeable.
Very happy!
I will be as honest I as possibly can be here, I was going to purchase this handset but the fact it is not waterproof and dust proof, I didn't buy it and bought a Z5 and honestly it is the best phone, I have owned...from Samsung, HTC, Apple and then finally purchased this phone :) No regrets

Seems to be under £200 on o2 refresh..
Do you need to sign up to O2 contract for that though?


Yes, you do. Then you need to pay off the device and cancel the contract during the 14 day cool off period. Another downside is that it probably comes with o2 branded firmware..

Love Sony but they seem to be the only company that took a great selling flagship compact phone in z5 compact and made it worst the following year...well and HTC for a few phones until the 10

Yeh I've read a lot of people say that, it'll be my first Sony, and on paper it looks great. It is a shame theyve lost the waterproofing and adding a slower processor, but there a few nice improvements too (USB C is a big one for me coming from 5X).

be aware of this awful company
Virgin uses EE infrastructure and provides very good data speeds. They use the bandwidth which they have agreed upon with EE. I am not a rocket scientist but the speed is excellent for my day to day tasks. Downloads are completed in a couple of seconds and videos never buffer. They provide the data speed exactly as advertised. But to me the biggest advantage is data roll over, that is I get it rolled over and added to the next month's data. Practically I have now unlimited data for my use with a very good speed. I can't compare Virgin to Giffgaff because it would be unfair. You only compare products and services which are alike.

I joined giffgaff in 2012 after Orange sent me shock bill. I knew right from the beginning the data speed was rubbish but at that time you could get unlimited data for £10 per month. But slowly they started the price hike and service started getting from bad to worse. Finally in January I took a Virgin Media contract SIM only. For £15 unlimited texts, 5000 minutes and 20 GB data + WhatsApp and FB free with rollover of the leftover data from the previous month. Data speed is excellent and now that wife has moved to EE from Giffgaff I know EE has even better data speed. I don't think I would ever consider giffgaff again unless they improve their service quality.


Never understood how Virgin data speeds are slower than EE. Virgin play off EE don't they?
I joined giffgaff in 2012 after Orange sent me shock bill. I knew right from the beginning the data speed was rubbish but at that time you could get unlimited data for £10 per month. But slowly they started the price hike and service started getting from bad to worse. Finally in January I took a Virgin Media contract SIM only. For £15 unlimited texts, 5000 minutes and 20 GB data + WhatsApp and FB free with rollover of the leftover data from the previous month. Data speed is excellent and now that wife has moved to EE from Giffgaff I know EE has even better data speed. I don't think I would ever consider giffgaff again unless they improve their service quality.

giffgaff will NEVER have a deal that should be on this site, never! I uncovered them several years ago when they were still small and niche, and thought ok, not bad. went on the other day and boy, they're having a laugh at those prices!

Went for this just before christmas, blooming excellent phone and couldn't be happier with it. unfortunately was a bit lubricated at the time and did it on my giffgaff account as I already use them, so was only expecting £5 quidco cashback, so rather pleased to be given £10 this morning! now waiting for another good deal to get the mrs one, brilliant phone even for the £170 I ended up paying :D
Doesn't seem like it. Wouldn't detect my 5G on my BT router, but detected the standard one fine.

Virgin uses EE so you shouldn't have to unlock it.

Didnt realise that, I'll somehow need to use up the stupid 10£ credit. Then I'll put my virgin sim inside. thanks for the tip

Does this phone not recognise 5g wifi? my virgin router is right next to me and there is too many devices connected to 2g.. shame

Update on this. I went instore today. They had this phone for 129.99 plus 10£ topup locked to EE. 8£ to unlock if you go online and it can take two weeks. The beats headset deal was 159.99 plus 20£ topup. Technically buying the headsets for half price. I just bought normal and will transfer my number over to EE and cancelling my virgin rolling contract.

I got it for my son from the EE store for £129+£10 top up.

His BT sim works in it fine (BT use EE) - no issues at all. Seems a great phone, especially for the price; I set it up with his Google account and installed a few of his favourite apps and updated all the standard apps. Feels great to hold, and looks nice. Feels like a premium device.

£50 cashback through quidco for handset activations of £150 or over
Do you have a link for that? I cant seem to find it on the Quidco site. (I'm new to all these cashback sites so might be getting things completely wrong)


Hi, it was a Black Friday offer and has finished now, sorry!!


Doh! Shame I missed that. Thanks for the reply

Cold for Sony having the front to even charge £300 for a 720p phone.
Small display so doesn't require high res. Also helps battery life.

Anyone had their quidco back yet? My claim is still at "Retailer decision".

Quidco update: claim successful - £50 tracked
Anyone had their quidco back yet? My claim is still at "Retailer decision".

Ordered S7 @ £459 (inc £10 SIM 'goody bag' - required for new customers to 'activate') on Monday night before the £50 Quidco deal expired. It tracked at £5 cashback (though this may, or may not, rise to £50; I don't know).
Delivered Tuesday but the box was not sealed, so it could be a refurb, or it could be a return, or otherwise rejected, I have no idea why it had been previously opened (I do know it wasn't for GG to put a SIM in it because they hadn't). It's exasperating.
Conversely at least in a shop you can check the seal (is intact) before paying, whereas with Giff Gaff you could be mis-sold it as "new".
Hopefully they will come down in price on the high street around/after Christmas?

That's annoying, mine arrived today with seal intack.You must have just been unlucky perhaps as I also ordered a Moto E3 last week with seal intact.

Took the plunge last night (with 2 hours to spare). Fingers crossed for the cashback for a cracking deal on a new S7.

Thanks OP!

giffgaff logoGiffgaff - Changing the Way the Mobile Phone Business Operates

Giffgaff opened for business in November 2009, with its marketing placing heavy emphasis on involvement with its users and on being different from more other mobile service providers. Though the company's striking advertising campaigns make much of its independence, giffgaff was founded and remains wholly owned by O2, which is itself owned by the Spanish multinational Telefonica.

From the outset, giffgaff's approach was a success and the company has won numerous awards. These include:

  • The Forrester Groundswell Award
  • Most Innovative Community Award at the Social CRM Customer Excellence Awards
  • uSwitch Network of the Year
  • A Recommended Provider accolade from "Which?"

Among giffgaff's unique features is its "Payout" scheme which rewards members, as it likes to style its customers, who successfully recommend other customers who take up a giffgaff service. The company prides itself on offering the latest possible technology and all of its goodybags come with 4G at no extra cost. All of the company's features, including customer support, are only available online at their website www.giffgaff.com.

Giffgaff: Online Shop

Giffgaff is an online-only retailer without any physical stores. On the giffgaff website, hovering over the "Our Offer" button reveals the company's major products, while the "Community" button reveals a key part of the giffgaff offer which is connections with other users to resolve problems and to offer advice.

In addition, hovering over the dedicated "Help" button on the homepage offers advice on everything from ordering your first SIM to using your mobile abroad.

Deals from Giffgaff

An unusual deal from giffgaff is its Payback scheme. This allows existing giffgaff members to earn "points" by:

  • Ordering and sending giffgaff SIMs using giffgaff Spread, with 1,000 points earned for each SIM activated.
  • Recommending giffgaff to friends and earning 200 points if they mention your username when ordering.
  • Helping other customers on the giffgaff Community pages, with points awarded at the company's discretion.

Each point is equivalent to 1p and can be:

  • Redeemed for cash through PayPal.
  • Used for airtime credit.
  • Donated to charity.

giffgaff mobile phone providerThe company redeems points automatically twice a year (in June and in December). Users need to be members for at least three months before registering for this scheme.

Giffgaff customers seeking cheaper phones may wish to visit the company's Marketplace where there's a wide selection of used phones which, the company says, have been unlocked with all data removed.

The company offers its standard 14 day returns policy on all of these pre-owned phones as well as a six-month guarantee.

In addition, the GiffGaff website is always worth visiting during the January Sales period and on Black Friday for more special deals.

Contact Giffgaff

Giffgaff has no customer service numbers. Though the company is owned by O2, calls to the O2 switchboard simply attract the advice to consult the giffgaff website, since giffgaff operates entirely separately from the parent company.
