I'd be very surprised if they actually have stock. They cancel the majority of orders placed with them.

is the current cold score for the retailer Or the phone?
cheers..
phone seems decent for the money to my mind....

​Strong words, and a bit of bitterness detected. But I agree.

They speak well of you though....

they take your money say its instock they email next day saying its cancelled but keep your money for five days happened twice now and to a lot of people they deserve their reputation ruined

It amazes me that people think these companies have infinite stock & get bitter when the demand gets out of control & they have to cancel orders

I ordered a S7 from them it arrived with no isses & id certainly order again

Phone shop by sainsburys is a small outlet which is being phased out

​The problem is that they are a large well known company, they should have proper systems that only allow them to sell items that they actually have in stock.

Not only that, but they also don't serve customers on a first come first serve basis. On the Honor 8 deal from last week, people who ordered early got their orders cancelled due to no stock, whereas those that ordered an hour or two later had their orders honored.

I bought this phone not more than 2 weeks ago for £129. It looks and feels good. Bit gutted that it's now £30 cheaper. Anybody know if they will refund the difference? Not been able to find it on their site.

There's no reason not to get this phone. I think the down votes are for the retailer. However this is clearly in stock cos I bought it at £129. They didn't shift enough at that price so have lowered to £99.

For that money you get a good size, FHD screen, 3GB phone, only 16GB storage but has SD slot, Gyroscope (for VR use), Qualcomm CPU instead of the Mediatek in cheaper phones.

I was like you looking for a decent spec. phone for around the £100 mark without resorting to gambling with overseas retailers like Ali-Bangsgood-with-Best-Gear etc.

​Despite the retailer, and 3 previously cancelled orders, I took a punt on this and it was delivered today.

I'm fairly surprised by the content in the box as its also bundled with a clear hard bumper case, a flip case with a window in it, and a screen protector, in addition to the VR headset and JBL headphones. Fantastic value for £100.

Not sure that any system could keep up with the mass of orders that deals posted on HotUKDeals generate! The problem is more with sites like this than the companies who are suddenly flooded with orders. As others have said Phone Shop by Sainsbury's is being shut down so stocks are going to be very limited.

Can confirm that phone came bundled with a clear hard bumper case, a dot matrix flip case with a window in it, and a screen protector, in addition to the VR headset and JBL headphones. Earphones model is unknown, looks cheap despite being JBL

yes

Just received mine haven't opened it yet

Wow... so happy with this purchase. Absolute bargain and great service from Phone Shop by Sainsbury's. Can't believe this has been voted cold.

Stereo speakers sound really good. Dot matrix flip case looks very cool once you've enabled Matrix FlipCase mode in Display settings (you can see rain, clouds, etc shine through the matrix of tiny holes in the case). First phone I've had which has a 'reversible' mode, i.e. where you can use it either way up (...due to the dual speakers & dual mics). Reversible mode is also handy for compatibility with the phone bracket in my car... the clip doesn't foul the buttons when the phone is upside down! Comes with a nice compact mains charger with a flip-away earth pin. The whole product has a premium feel to it.
