Great price
You might Receive a Japanese variant of the device that you are trying to order. Would this have any impact on the UK networks?
These guys are based out of Hong Kong but as far as warranty goes, you should be able to get it seen at a UK Apple store if any issues arise I think.

Interesting point but it might be worth checking in with Apple UK before committing to this...

Are these not all the same out of the box, regardless of where its sold?
how is that dual sim? is it the eSIM that UK networks don't support?

Japanese ones are not dual SIM and they make a annoying camera shutter noise.

I don't know if this is an issue or not but I bought a couple of used iPhone 8 Plus handsets a year or so ago and I checked the warranty status on Apple's website using the serial numbers. Instead of telling me the purchase date and expiry of the warranty it said this handset was bought in a different market than the one I am in or something to that effect.
I didn't ever need to use the warranty but that didn't give me confidence.

I work in the mobile industry and O2 are shortly introducing support for eSIMs so won't be long.

both are A2221, can't be different?!
I don’t be understand why these iPhone eglobal deals get posted almost every day.

Stop posting misinformed comments. Apple warranty is worldwide for every single product they sell. In case a warranty replacement is required, you might have to wait a few extra days for the part to come in as the replacement has to be like-for-like, but that’s it.

Vodafone and three doesn't support eSim in UK
This is the A2223 variant from Hong Kong, which takes two physical SIMs. There are some extra Chinese bands included, but these will otherwise fully work with all UK/EU networks. The A2221 variant is the one with the likelihood of being a Japanese variant, and will be single SIM.

You’ve posted a random thread with a reply from a random community member. Just off the top of my head - I’ve had a MacBook Pro from Singapore entirely replaced with a new one in the UK, a Singaporean iPhone replaced in Japan, and a Thai iPhone replaced in the UK. In the WORST case, you might have to wait a week for a Japanese phone to come in from one of their fulfillment centres - that too only IF you have a Japanese market phone. Tourists from all over the world wouldn’t be flocking to buy Apple products in UK stores if they couldn’t easily get them replaced in their own countries. If you’ve ever owned an Apple product and lived in more than one country, it’s understood that warranty is a complete non-issue.

Look at the link mate: Warranty restriction! - apple.com/leg…tml - "IMPORTANT RESTRICTION FOR iPHONE, iPAD AND APPLE TV SERVICE. Apple may restrict warranty service for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV to the country where Apple or its Authorized Distributors originally sold the device." <-- The warranty does not outright deny warranty coverage in other countries but there are many limitations to the effect they almost certainly will refuse to do repairs under warranty or even repairs at all except in the country of purchase. The device would have to be sent to a friend in the country of purchase to handle any repair claims because Apple will not handle international shipping.

Yes , these will be 100% Japanese variant; my 3 mates received Japanese variants. They have one physical SIM and one eSIM, just the same as in the UK. Warranty is valid, all mates have 1 year Apple Warranty-checked at Apple site and saw by myself. Camera sound is really loud and annoying.
EE supports eSIM in PAYG and contract phones. O2 supports contract only. Three will never support eSIM, as they are on 3G network only, thats what Three tells, anyway.

@Rimi thanks for the feedback. Appreciate this.
I'm going to stay away if it's Japanese variant.

@Lynx OP Please can you add in the description that these could be Japanese variant meaning they might be single SIM + eSIM ?
Edited by: "b4dr1" 28th Oct
Got one from eGlobal. Took 19 days to receive it. Yes, it is Japanese market phone. Yes it has warranty, checked at Apple Store.
Not using camera that much, so I am fine. But if you use camera a lot - sound is horrible!!! Especially in quiet places and indoors.
Transferred my EE pay as you go sim to eSIM, no problems. Paid £1.50 for eSIM. Works fine. But all who wants 2 physical sim cards - this is not for you!
I’m fairly certain that this specific listing is for the A2223 dual SIM version. It will only be the Japanese version if it’s A2221. Eglobal sells both and clearly differentiates between them, but the “Japanese version” disclaimer is mentioned on all iPhone listings, which confuses people.

Exactly what I just said. That disclaimer is on EVERY iPhone listing. When they specifically mention A2223 Dual SIM, that’s what you’ll get - the dual physical SIM version from Hong Kong. A2221 (nano-SIM + eSIM) is the one that’ll be the Japanese variant. Eglobal sells both dual and single SIM variants with the pertinent model numbers.

Good luck! All my mates who ordered, received Japanese variant. As Japanese variants not so popular ant they get them at cheaper price..

Did your mates order A2223 or A2221?
Listing was for A2223, received A2221. The writing "Might receive" means you will receive 100% Japanese variant, which comes with eSIM.

Completely Agree
Has anyone who ordered from eglobal actually received the A2223 variant? The unmutable shutter sound is absolutely a dealbreaker for me.
Bought Airpods from eGlobal 2 weeks ago. Not delivered until this moment, i sent them emails they dont respond. Trying to get hold of their delivery company (Hermes) but got no where.

I guess I have to escalate it to Paypal to get my money back. AVOID eGlobal

You have to wait 2 more weeks and AirPods will be delivered. It usually takes 4 weeks for delivery. I have ordered well over £3k of goods from these guys and know well delivery time. So be patient.

Mate, they already sent me an email with the delivery note through Hermes. Hermes website has minimal notes about failed delivery attempts. I tried to contact Hermes and eGlobal (via email as no other mean seem available) and both not responding.
Thanks for reassurances but I expect eGlobal to respond when there is delivery issues.

They never respond, don't worry. But yes, if there is a problem - you are in trouble. I had none, maybe lucky..
