Northern Ireland is part of the UK, this is HotUKdeals and Ebuyer state free UK delivery, however delivery to Northern Ireland is £9.99 for all items under 3Kg... I used to order from their ebay site and got free delivery - so the insurance excuse is nonsense.

So no reason for the terrible keyboard? Nice to see you looked at delivery options where it says free.

Royal Mail is not available for delivery to Northern Ireland due to insurance purposes. For orders over 3kg, add 35 pence per kg.
I think they should change their insurance provider - no one else uses that excuse!

Yyy and Philips Hue bulbs are what then? cheeky Also WiFi
Hue bulbs are Bluetooth. They don't have a WiFi connection. The Hue hub connects via ethernet so no WiFi in the Hue system at all.
Hue bulbs are neither, they run off Zigbee which is a LR-WPAN which is more similar to wifi than bluetooth.
What's the discount code?
Ordered Two. Thanks OP.
I'd have to agree you need something like an Echo Dot with these. It's impractical every time you want to turn them on/off to have to turn on your phone's WiFi before using an app, so I just switch them at the wall and only use IFTTT to change the colours between presets I've created. Being switched off at the wall means it takes a while after flicking the switch for them to connect to the WiFi so that I can change colour. I also find if I don't wait a few minutes after changing colour before I switch them off that they lose the new setting and revert to the previous one.
refaey
I have a few of these at home already and can answer your questions.1. Yes you can switch them ON/OFF via the app, as well as changing colours, scenes,...etc. Also, the app is NOT the only option to control these, you can also use Alexa (which I use mostly) or for automation you can use IFTTT.2. Yes the Yeelight app allows you to group them and cotrol them as a group. So you can have 4 in the bedroom, create a group in the app callled "Bedroom" and link the four bulbs to it. The Yeelight app, Alexa and IFTTT can either send commands to the 'Bedroom' group of bulbs, or to individual bulbs.3. You don't need a hub as these connect directly to the router. However, I would highly recommend Alexa. The only reason I say that is because you need these ON all the time (even if the light is off, they still need to connect to Wifi). If you turn them off (using the light switch) they will still remember your Wifi details and re-connect when you switch them back on, however, if you leave them off for too long, they forget everything and you have to set them up again. The bulbs I have forget wifi details after 1-2 days. Alexa allows you to leave them ON all the time, but switch the light ON/OFF when needed. Alexa, bedroom light ON. Alexa, bedroom light OFF. Alexa, bedroom light red. Alexa, bedroom light dim to 20%, to mention just a few commands :-) - I bought 3 Amazon Echo Dot on prime day for £28 each and will order some more the next time they have a discount. They're really worth the money just for the alarm and online Radio. Also, "Alexa, play death metal on Tune in" keeps the wife away for sometime if you want some peace and tranquility :-)
Thank you so much for the detailed response!

The three camels say it was recently sold by a third-party seller for £14.99. I wouldn't even give that for it.

The thing is it's not even £39.99, there's a promotion for 50% off when you click redeem which makes it £19.99.

But second hand, don't think you can enforce consumer rights the same, internal damage may have been caused by previous owner and you can't prove it wasn't thus what good is it if you are left in a small claims court situation with CEX, it's between a rock and a hard place. £1.99 isn't a difference issue for £5 - but say you bought a second hand expensive Apple product or Surface tablet for hundreds or over a grand... just be VERY careful with CEX and the likes warranty.
I've been buying from Cex for years and they have always been very good when it comes to faults and suchlike - for me at least.

With a product of this price I wouldn't be worried about warranty though, I'd just go for the cheapest price. If it broke after six months I'd just chuck it in the bin.

i found this very motivating, the story gets better as you go along and it encourages you with resources to build your own town.

town building thing quickly becomes ignorable but story narration on missions does make you want to run more and the interval training - outrunning zombies by speeding up by a configurable % at user-defined frequencies - is a good push.

full android version has been free for a long time but makes you either unlock extra missions (of which there are a LOT, 15-20 per season and up to 6 seasons) on a once-per-week basis or pay for a pass that adds loads of challenges and 5/10k races, interval training, "airdrops" (where you can specify where to run to and back) and more.

for those that criticize it for not being a 'proper' fitness app it has all sorts of options for run length and zombie chase speed/frequency, music support for in-app or external playlists and will give you all the distance, speed & time options plus breakdown per KM and maps you can share on FB but doesn't do elevation or more advanced tracking. does have various step or average speed options too so you can use it on treadmill.

as far as i'm aware the 5k training app is almost a demo mode to get you up to doing the 3k+ lengths it takes to use the proper app to play out it's story each jog. as an avid jogger i found this motivating and i continued using it as a tracker after the interest of the story/base building mode wore off.

windows mobile is a great OS, but it came to market a few years to late, if it had come out within 1 year of iOS and Android arriving it would been the 3rd OS on the market, alas, it came out to late, pity as I think it was a nice breath of fresh air vs the other two.

They have not stopped support for windows phone.....yet just windows phone 8 devices......window sphone 10 is very much still supported. I have this phone well did until it fell in the pool on holiday. The camera is awesome best I have ever used on any device and the screen is brilliant.....using android at the moment and I miss the buttery smoothness of the OS, if you don't mind the odd app missing mostly like restaurant apps etc most of the important ones are there then they make great phones.....office integration outlook etc cannot be beat.......

But not fully supported. Development of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile has decoupled. Windows 10 (desktop) will be supported with new features in the future, whereas Windows 10 Mobile will only be receiving security and bug fix updates until it hits EOL.

The future also looks bleak as Joe Belfiore has confirmed that Windows 10 on ARM won't be coming to Windows Phones, and is being used primarily for Laptops or Tablets where extra battery life is needed.

The 'Surface Phone' or whatever it will be called is likely to be a tablet first, which may or may not be able to be folded in half, that can also be used for phone calls.

As it is though W10M is the most stable it has ever been. I still enjoy using the Lumia 650 on the odd occasion. The platform is at its best when only the basics are required, trying to use it anything more adventurous is likely to frustrate, or be impossible.
Microsoft has tested Full blown Windows 10 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 . So next Surface phone will be a Windows 10 computer which can also work as a phone. Windows 10 Mobile OS used in this phone and HP X3 Elite is a dead horse.
Good phone but very few apps work on it, so not great . Without apps any phone is useless.

If this was £99, it would be great deal, as it's a great camera. But for a similar price (239) you could get a Oneplus 3/3t with a supported OS and apps that will be updated and a similar camera spec.
Where can you get UK model Oneplus 3/3t for £239 ?

Most are like that some do have some marks but the real difference is in the apple warranty, perfect have 10 to 12 months, like new 6 to 10 and almost less than 6 usually less than 4.


This is nonsense. A lot of grade B and C (almost perfect/perfectly fine) will come with no Apple warranty at all.
The difference is, grade A have been returned within the 14 day cooling off period, grade C have been returned as faulty and repaired. Grade B are returned for a mixture of those reasons.
Most grade A will have warranty, grade B and C will sometimes but far from guaranteed. The O2 guarantee is worthless in my experience.

How do you check how long the warranty is?
You enter the serial number on Apple's site.
Mine's says it has expired?
I thought I would have had a warranty? Or is it because I paid my device off?

Should have read down. Thought it was too good to be true, Aliexpress never normally lets you pay by Paypal, this is basically a scam.

Didn't even get the usual new customer coupons, clicking on that page excludes you from getting them.

i did a bull order of €25 + and it stated i had no vouchers to apply at the checkout, other than going through to paypal and it might appear then ? doubtful tho.

Ahh, I've just tried signing up myself and after putting $20+ worth of items in my basket, there doesn't appear to be a way to select payment by Paypal.. Which is odd, considering the offer hinges around using Paypal.
Unless I'm looking in the wrong place / doing something wrong, I think you might be right - looks like a con.

probably because its a con, as you register and well guess what no $5 off coupon in sight.
Have you tried it?
It says in the blurb that the $5 is automatically deducted from your first $20 spend, so I'm not certain that you'd see a voucher to apply manually to the order - I could be wrong though.

Bought these a couple of months ago, lasted one day before the connector snapped off inside my phone. Luckily there was was enough protruding to get it out with pliers. They were returned straight away.
FFS folks, just buy a Made For iPhone certified cable and leave these cables - and all the other tosh from Poundland etc - to rot in the warehouse where it belongs.

You can buy a legitimately certified cable for under a fiver. Why risk damaging your phone, having the cable stop working after a software update, or in the very best case scenario endure a cable that charges far slower than a certified one?


If you're going to buy a nice phone at least buy a decent phone cable to go with it. The same goes for Android devices and USB C cables.

£900 for a handset with 3000mAh battery Vs Lenovo P2 £200 phone with 5100 mAh battery!

EE retentions matched the 37.99/month for 10gb for me recently. Didn't do it on "prime day" so didn't have the cashback to negotiate with though. Still very pleased with the deal; EE prices for the S8 are insane.

S8 a replacement for the S5 for me. I've always been very cynical of "flagship" phones and whether or not they offer worthwhile upgrades or are just a numbers pi55ing contest. Hence I've kept the S5 for 3 years.

Turns out it's the former. This thing is ridiculous. It's the perfect size. Its the most lustworthy gadget in looks I've ever had. I'm getting 6-6.5 hours of screen on time as well. I'd get 3.5 on the S5 with the same use. It dropped 3% battery in the last 8 hours. If you need to charge partway through the day you're either using it for 7 hours straight or you've got rubbish reception; in which case there is no phone that's going to last long enough.

I don't really understand why these deals on the S8 keep being marked cold. The S7 is a year old and pretty much the same price.
Anyone that got this deal know if the phones come locked or unlocked. I'm just curious if they come locked and if so do they lock to the first inserted sim card.

I got your point but I've used apple, Samsung and other brands like everyone else and they hit your pocket big time and claims "faster" and "lighter" "thinner" in their over hyped announcements! And their all latest devices makes your video and browsing time a second faster than other phones! I think battery life is the crucial factor, imagine world's most powerful phone with half day's battery!!
You're pretty much spot on there. I use my Samsung quite a bit, it's an awesome phone, but two full charges a day, and no replaceable battery? That's not good enough for a £1000 telephone in my opinion, but that's how much it cost me

AM an android fan and i think you are a troll. That 12mp is better than 95% of android smartphones out there. If you know anything about camera is not about the amount of MP is a about the sensor and image processing. Personally 32gb is not enough for me however if i manage my files i think it is more than enough. What i dont like about Apple is the restriction that they have on their devices however Imo Apple make good phones!
You my friend are a know it all but knows nothing.I have and iPad and have learnt unlike yourself that 32gb isn't enough when it comes to future proofing your devices that's why is always buy a 128gb.Its not about how many pounds it costs it dosent mean it's a better device and there's plenty of android phones out there with cameras the same as this amd just as good.If there's anything else you would like to know please comment. (poo)
I have a 32gb iphone.
Over 900 songs on it, a stack of tv episodes, podcasts, photos, magazines and the like.
Still 1.6gb available.
32gb is fine.
Annoying that Apple got rid of the 64GB model with the iPhone 7. 32GB a bit on the low side, 128GB way too much.

Whilst it looks insane, this is perfect for hols at this price. RRP is utter madness. Purchased, thanks.
Ordered cheers
These cases are excellent - very reliable, extremely protective and they make battery life epic. I've also bought one from Cex to find it brand new and sealed.

Battery life on the iPhone 7 is no worse than on previous models so I'm not sure what people's expectations are.
I have one for my 6s and its been a god send. Heat added.
My iPhone 7 was way better than my 6 when I first got it but it's dropped so much it's losing maybe 30% overnight and Apple don't know why. Though they have helpfully told me that I should 'factory reset' it...

Anyway, I would not want to strap that monstrousity to my phone, to say it's the most ugly Apple product they've 'designed' in years would be putting it mildly. A power bank and cable is a much more flexible option for me. Also buying from CeX doesn't guarantee it's new and sealed. I have seen some properly atrocious condition things from there - most recently a hard disk that caught fire..

No go for me, they said it wasn't available any more without TV.
One excellent aspect that should be highlighted with this deal is that any unused data per month can be rolled-over for up to 3 years - yes, THREE years.

"Your data is yours to keep.

At the end of every month, we’ll automatically Roll over whatever’s left into your Sky Piggybank, to use whenever you like.

There’s no limit to how much you can store and you can keep it for 3 years.

If you run out, you can simply Roll back data from your Sky Piggybank to use instantly whenever you need it."
Be aware sim will not work in an O2 phone, only a Sky provided phone or unlocked phone
Best deal if you had sky package then mobile deal is half price from what is advertised

How Apple Changed the Mobile Market with the iPhone

In 2007, having already revolutionized the computer and music player industries, Apple and Steve Jobs introduced the product that would come revolutionize the mobile phone industry. Initially met with contempt by competitors such as Blackberry, the original iPhone had sold 6 million units by the time it was discontinued in 2008.

iPhone: Premium Mobile Device

The original iPhone design combined the functionality of a touch screen iPod, a mobile phone and a non-WAP based mobile phone browser. These are all common place elements in today's market, so it may be hard to imagine how revolutionary the combination of these elements was for the time. Apple followed up with the iPhone 3G a year later, which brought forth high-speed connectivity and an app store that would become the standard format for almost all future app stores. The iPhone 3GS disappointed most users as it included little more than minor upgrades in performance and storage to the already existent features.

The next major upgrade would come in the shape of the iPhone 4, with a flat design, a high pixel screen and an integrated antennae upping the smartphone game stakes ahead of competitors that were slowing catching up with the next generation of mobile phone. By the time the iPhone 4S hit the market, Apple's marketing had done what it needed to make sure the public knew that the 'S' was now a standard marker for 'minor upgrade'. Thus, expectations were limited, as was disappointment in the limited number of changes on offer.

The first offering of the seventh generation saw little innovation beyond a severely slimmed-down design. The plastic-backed 5C arrived a little later as an attempt at a budget version of the iPhone 5. It was an attempt to compete with the low-cost android phones that were now common on the market at that time. Once again, the 'S' version of the seventh generation focused on upgrading the already existing features.

The iPhone 6/6 Plus and 6S/6S Plus dramatically revamped the screen size and resolution and incorporated the new iOS 8. These built on the previous generation but also saw the introduction 3D touch technology, which monitors how strongly you are pressing on the screen. This opens some interesting avenues, particularly for mobile gaming. The latest versions to date are the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus which feature an all-new 12MP camera and is resistant against dust and splash water.

iPhone 7: Next Generation Smartphone

Which iPhone is Right for You?

Which iPhone you should buy will depend on what you are after and what kind of smartphone user you are. The most recent generations of the iPhone are similar in many ways but each version is designed to cater to a particular user group. For instance, the iPhone 5S or the iPhone SE is perfect for those who want something with the basic iPhone features and look, but at a smaller size and a lower price than the larger models.

The iPhone 6 is ideal for those who want something that looks like the real deal but cuts down on thickness and price by stripping away some features. The 6S boasts every top of the line feature the iPhone can deliver, but with a 4.7-inch display rather than a 5.5-inch, those who want a phone for viewing videos and serious browsing may want to look at the iPhone 6 Plus instead. The latter is iPhone's first step into the so called “phablet“ market.

The iPhone 7 brings in excellent performance and longest battery life ever in an iPhone. It is furthermore resistant against splash water and dust, features stereo speakers, the powerful A10 Fusion processor with 3GBs of RAM and and the best camera ever build in an iPhone with 12MP.

Choosing an iPhone Storage Capacity

Choosing the right storage option will, naturally, depend on how you use your iPhone. If all you want to do is text, call and stream, 16GB versions may be more than enough. However, weightier usage such as storing video, photos and hosting a large amount of apps may mean a large capacity storage is the best way to go. There are a host of device that fall in the middle of the range as well. You'll need to decide where on the spectrum you tend to fall.

Which iPhone Do I Have?

Deciding which model to upgrade to means knowing which model you currently have. If you have had it for multiple years, you may have forgotten which one you have. Identifying your iPhone model is pretty straightforward. If you look on the back of your iPhone, you'll set text in the format of "Model AXXXX". Match the model number to the number located on a checker page.

Improve the Experience: iPhone Accessories

iPhone owners can benefit from a massive range of accessories. Which ones you go for will depend on how you use your phone, but you can seriously enhance your device by taking advantage of what's out there. Here are some phone accessories that are well worth checking out:

  • Speakers – The iPhone can pair up with some fantastic wireless speakers, allowing you to get the party started wherever you happen to be, or to create some serious audio while streaming movies or playing games.
  • Waterproof cases – If you prize your iPhone, a waterproof case is really a no-brainer, protecting it against puddles and unscheduled trips to the wash basin.
  • Keyboards – The iPhone is an intuitively designed, ergonomic device, but one drawback for some people is entering text. If you want to use your phone professionally or to take lecture notes, a keyboard is a must. You can find models from brands like Logitech that roll up neatly and essentially turn your phone into a laptop.
  • Camera attachments – While the iPhone's camera is fantastic, you can enhance its features with accessories like the OlloClip, which attaches to the camera and provides wide-angle or fish-eye capabilities.
  • Gaming controllers – iPhone gaming can be taken to another level by purchasing accessories like the GameVice which attaches to both sides of your phone, adding a joypad and thumbstick – more or less mimicking a PlayStation controller.
  • Charging docks – Nobody wants to run out of juice at a crucial moment, so make sure you have the charging docks, cables and battery packs you require to ensure that you aren't left chargeless when you really need it.
  • Tripods – If you really love to use your iPhone to take snaps, a tripod will be absolutely essential. With accessories like the Joby GorillaPod, you can stabilise your iPhone in any conditions and take professional shots or video.
  • Stands – Film and TV fans will need a way to stream their favourite shows without having to hold their phones or prop them up awkwardly. Instead, you can purchase specialist stands that do the job for you, creating whatever angle makes most sense.
  • VR headsets – iPhone users may not have a dedicated VR set from Apple, but there are plenty of third party alternatives from brands like Pimax, Stealth and Maxtek.
  • Running bands/fitness tracker – If you are a fitness freak who can't stand the idea of leaving your iPhone at home while you run, this handy band will keep your phone in place and let you take calls or listen to music.

iPhone vs. Android Devices: The Big Question

Are iPhones better than Android phones and, if so, is the difference big enough to justify the extra cost? We're going to look at a few key categories to help breakdown difference between the two.

  • The apps - At this stage, there really aren't many types of apps on iPhone that can't be found in a similar form on an Android device. In addition, as Google offers more freedom and less restriction when it comes to app development for its platform, there is more to be had when it comes to Android. Yet it can be argued that this creates its own issue for Android. A great deal of Android apps are niche and appeal to only the most hard-core residents of Geek-land. In contrast, iPhone apps are designed to be easily understood by everyone and straightforward to use. Plus, developers of top apps still tend to publish their apps on iOS first.
  • The performance - Viewed through a purely functional lens, there is not much difference between the performance and speed of the top Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ in comparison to the iPhone 7/7Plus. That said, you are still likely to experience regular jerks and hiccups in Android device performance. It may not sound like much, but when you are using an iPhone, you do notice the silky smooth fluidity. But this is, as often in life, a matter of personal taste.
  • Updates to the operating system - A regular complaint for Android, but one that still makes a big difference when it comes to choosing. When a new update to iOS comes out, you will very likely have access to it on your iPhone immediately. However, with Android, it may be years before you'll see your device updated. If you are not salivating over the thought of minor and major tweaks to your current OS, this may not be too big a factor. However, if something big does come along, you may be left out of the conversation about it in the office canteen.
  • The most common deal-breaker: iOS - iPhone users commonly quote the operating system of the handset as the main reason why they don't switch to Android. While there are few stand out features available on iOS that don't have something comparable on Android, the difference here is in usability and smooth interface, which has always been a hallmark of Apple design. Again, if you are just looking for something that works, Android will get you there. The difference is one that seems to underwrite most of the differences mentioned above; that is that the iPhone usually manages to get you there more easily, with less confusion and minimal frustration. However, it is not all smooth sailing. Examples of drawbacks for iOS include an overdependence on the use of iTunes for music purposes and the absence of a default on-board file manager.
    Fast charging - Currently, iPhones doesn´t offer a quick charge function which a lot of Android devices feature. This means you can charge your phone for the day in a really short amount of time.

Pros and Cons of iPhones

The iPhone in general is an excellent work of modern technique. But there are also some cons that you should be aware of before considering any version of the device. Here are a few of the most important:

The Pros:

  • Great usability - Apple´s operating system is very intuitive and you don´t need to be a tech crack to set it up or adapt it to your needs. Another great plus is that Apple´s products network very well in general. So, if you already own an iPad, a MacBook or something else from the firm in Cupertino, it´s only logical to buy an iPhone to complete your range.
  • Security - One of the major selling points for Mac has always been the lack of viruses designed to attack their systems. To date there are no documented cases of viruses for iOS. As time wears on this may change. However, it is certainly the case that iPhones, like other devices, can be hacked remotely. One way to lower your risk is the familiarize yourself with the kinds of hacking software that is circulating at the moment.
  • Siri, the voice of Apple - Many people were blown away by Siri, the voice-controlled assistant that was unveiled in 2011. While not every version contains the software, if you are looking at older generations as a possible purchase, bear in mind that the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S all contain Siri.
  • Aesthetics - Another one of Apple's priorities is how their phones look. Every edition of the iPhone blows the competitors out of the water with its little design touches, ensuring that it will look the part wherever you use it.
  • Constantly updated, high-quality software - iOS and the apps designed to run on it tend to be of a very high quality, and Apple makes a point of updating their software more regularly than Google does with their Android system. Once you master iOS, you'll always know where you are with it as well. That's not always the case with Android versions, which can vary dramatically between mobile phone brands.

The Cons:

  • Often locked iPhones - Due to their significant cost, carriers that offer iPhones as part of a contract usually lock them to their network alone. You can usually get them unlocked by contacting your carrier but you will likely have to fulfil a particular criteria before they will do so. iPhones you have bought directly from Apple will usually be unlocked however it is always worthwhile checking this with the vendor in question before hand.
  • Problems with batteries - There have been several high profile issues with batteries throughout the years when it comes to iPhones. You can bring it to a store to get it replaced, but in most cases it will have to be sent to the repair centre. If you are still under warranty, or the AppleCare extended warranty, it is free, but if you are outside the warranty it will cost you. If you are using an older iteration of the iPhone it may be more worthwhile putting your hard-earned cash towards a newer model.
  • iPhones don´t take SD cards - Many have criticized the absence of an SD card slot on almost all of the iPhones. However, while you can't use a card directly, you can purchase an adapter that will allow you to use a micro SD card for memory expansion.
  • Flexibility - The downside of having a reliable OS that is regularly updated is the Apple take close control over what users can do with iOS. Android by contrast is much more flexible. You can customise your home screen however you like, adding the apps you use the most or tucking them all away in menus.
  • Audio jacks - The most recent models of iPhone have done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack in favour of Apple's own wireless headphones and speakers. That's fine for some people, but it limits your audio options, so you if you are a hardened audiophile you may want to explore other brands.

How to Find Cheap iPhone Deals

You can purchase iPhones from Apple directly at www.apple.com and their new iPhone upgrade program allows you to pay over 24 months, similar to carriers purchasing programs. Other major online retailers such as Mobiles.co.uk, Mobilephonesdirect.co.uk, EE or Amazon often offer cheap iPhones for sale as well. Mobile phone service carriers are still probably the cheapest way to get your hands on an iPhone, though it will come with contract stipulations.

Upgrading effectively can often be a question of timing. If you got your phone from a carrier, they will likely have a set time you need to wait before being entitled to an upgrade, so check with them to find out what this timeline is. There are also times of the year like the Black Friday, Christmas or the January Sales when electronic products are cheaper. Also, it is good to keep abreast of upcoming versions, as you might find your iPhone is obsolete by the time you get round to selling it. For instance, the rumour mill has already begun on the iPhone 8 release later this year, so if you are packing an iPhone 5 or 6, now may be a good time to start thinking about offloading it.
