I bought it from Three, it was single SIM, which is the European model. Vodafone looks like a good deal on the P9 especially if you can get the 15% VEA.

On the grounds that I've decided upon an arbitrary figure that I would pay for this phone. You might think it's worth more, or less.

Great phone at a great price. Not sure why cold...

Might be the cheapest anywhere now & a great phone, but has been posted for ~£300 so many times in the last few months. Hence why it's gone cold I reckon. It would be very hard for me to resist if it came down to £250.

Odd comment. I have previous P8 (which I got for £150 from parasitemol's deal - thanks again p), also with a Kirin & it has been absolutely fine so far (since Feb). Not everyone can afford the latest phones with the fastest processors in them anyway.

True it has been around £300 but they have been locked devices with carrier bloat. I'd be an extra £50 to get an unlocked phone personally.

I also agree - The Kirin processors in these phones are up there with their snapdragon counterparts, what lets these down in benchmarks are the lower end Mali GPU's they rock, though if you're not a hardcore gamer on your phone (which I am not) you will not notice the milliseconds difference between say this phone and a S7 in day in day out activities such as web browsing, YouTube, instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp etc etc.

And no problem on the P8, part of me is wondering whether they'll repeat that deal on the P9 at some point... I live in hope. I've had the P6, P7, P8 and Honor 7 from Huawei and they've never let me down.

Most were Vodafone & O2 contract (refresh), so free unlocks if requested. If not, unlock codes available on eBay for only £3-4. Not sure about carrier bloat.

Yes, you're probably right. No, not a gamer at all.

Wasn't that £150 P8 a misprice? Yes, I have the P6 too (£96 on O2 Refresh deal posted on HUKD!).

So how much do pay in total.. £215 or more after 6 months?
Can you just pay for the phone £200 plus the £15 goody bag.. and not buy any further goody bags?

Yeah those are the ones, it's not the unlock that annoys me, it's knowing I'll get an O2 or Voda splash screen every time I boot the phone and having the voda/O2 apps sitting there disabled and unable to be uninstalled. I'm a bit weird like that.

I'm not sure if the P8 was a misprice cause it was in their sale section, I thought they just run out of stock. Could have been a misprice though cause it was better than half price at the time and is more expensive than that now... oO

no, you still have to pay the balance of the phone

Er no, but the phone and goody bag are separate, so you can stop buying phone credit BUT you still own them the phone part of the monthly price. As shown fairly clearly on their page, if you pick £200 upfront and 24 months then you pay:
Financing provided by RateSetter
£7.39 for 24 monthly payments
18.8% APR for 24 months
£377.36 total payable
So a bit over £28 for the credit.

Depending on your view of their relative quality the only similar priced "official UK" model I can think of would be a One Plus 3 at £329 direct from One Plus. That probably has better gaming graphics with a 820 chipset. The OP3 also has a better screen, but larger handprint and NO removable storage. Feature comparison here: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Huawei-P9,OnePlus-3/phones/10012,10017

Mostly below this price level you only get less powerful phones, grey imports or china direct. Some of which are great value, and some are not. I'm fairly sure of that as I've been window shopping a lot of offers this month. After all an official (say) £200 phone gains £40 of VAT just for entering europe, plus shipping and handling, plus cost of local support and warranty.

Bought a P9 Lite for my mum couple months back, was impressed by the quality, one thing that comes to mind is that unlike the reviews you read everywhere about it being loaded with bloatware and UI is bad is total BS. Always download a launcher first thing, secondly it has half a dozen pre installed apps, but they can be uninstalled . Having been a user of Samsung and Oneplus phones over the years i can say this sits in between both, in hardware and software terms, with the added security of customer service and returns from a physical store compared to the long winded return of the Oneplus. At £300 this is a absolute bargain, £350 less so but still worthy.

Does Anyone know why this deal went cold? I can't find this phone cheaper anywhere else!?
