I got this email as well, and was gonna post it, but clearly I didn't ha. Voted hot.
Yeah, good idea, not buying one myself, heaven knows I've got too many phones. ;)
Blackberry/TCL have set the UK RRP at £579 but the European price is 579 Euros. So we are getting shafted by approx £70. May be worth having a look on Amazon France/Germany/Italy for a better deal?

Appliances Direct's grading system is one of the most generous I've seen. Their Grade B could easily be passed as A somewhere else, bought a Pixel 2 XL Grade B and it was almost brand new (no scratch anywhere, no mark on screen whatsoever).
I'm being told by Appliances Direct that these are refurbished and it only comes with a 3 month warranty.
When splashing this amount of cash I'd want A1! It certainly makes the Carphone warehouse misprice look to be bargain of the year, that's if you managed to get one for for £459
that is pretty fishy...
Cheapest calls and texts, 1p per unit. If your a low user you cant beat this 1p for everything voice, text and MB. Top up £10 every 4 months, no contract cancel whenever you want. Yes 1p for everything, use the link below and get £5 free when you activate your sim! 1pmobile.com/ind…80D
Too much coffee again!! Get some no deal sleep! ;)
No problem, tangential thinking problem with me I guess. So what's the difference between a brick and a red head? The brick is more likely to get laid ;)
@Harefoot comment just went straight over my head, sorry
Thanks I realise that. After Android anyway :)
as its sold, ebay now suggests another item here's another for £55.55 with a minor crack to a corner of the screen
....Gone on Ebay too. Directs you to LTE version https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nokia-3-LTE-4G-8MP-NFC-16GB-Unlocked-Smartphones-/192517083390?oid=273288860742
All gone on Appliances Direct
£55.55 from ebay also A grade
Any opinions compared to this deal? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/vonhaus-air-purifier-for-home-office-rooms-up-to-40m2-3999-dispatched-from-and-sold-by-domu-uk-amazon-2946950
Hepa filters take out airborne particles including dust and pollen.
That's the thing putting me off is replacing the filters.
Helps to provide relief to people suffering from airborne allergies; Relieves symptoms related to dry seasons & air conditioning; Helps to purify the air you breath; Eliminates odours, bacteria & air Ioniser creates negative ions that help reduce dust and other pollutants; It may not collect it but based on reviews and price c especially for oils. It seems to work for allergies, if it works, why spend more? I'm sure replacing the filters on something like this would cost 2-3x more than oils
Would these extract the dust couldn't see any info unless I'm missing it
This is £70 in B and M and I bought mine from Aldi for £60. Great bbq but not a good deal. It just has different handles on from the ones that I’ve just described.
had a quick look in CPW today and this was the only Sony that turned my head at all... I do find them a bit boxy looking , presumably because of this 'bezel issues lol.. but have to say this particular one felt pretty good in the hand .
It does eventually from what I've seen, but it wouldn't put me off either. I'd also keep mine in a protective case, with a good screen protector applied, in the hope it wouldn't happen (strong)
Have some heat. Fantastic phone, camera might be mediocre in some situations, but everything else is top notch. I compared the screen with P20 Pro and Sony screen has far better colours, it's a brighter and crisper.
I'm sure someone on here the other day was referring to the chrome on these peeling off or crazing or similar?
I'm partial to a smartphone on toast actually
Eglobal central its dual sim not split screen.
Hmm and does this phone have split screen and dual apps with the dual sim ie two whatsapp apps?
I'm guessing one of the Chinese sites.
Where did u get the brand new one with dual sim?
T The replacement two years. The one you get off ad maybe 15 months left.
you know how long they're covered for? A year?
Fully covered by Google. I had my original grade A replaced by Google because it developed a fault.
How's the warranty work on these? Google cover them at all?
Great phone and even though it is marked as refurbished, very likely it will come like new from Appliance/Laptops Direct, as just an opened box item, where a customer has just changed their mind. This is my experience of this company. Shame about the pricing as I got the phone for £110 in silver from the same seller. Even though the Nokia 6 (2017) is not officially Android One, it is more or less. Vanilla Android installed and Nokia guarantee all their devices will get two years of updates, so should get Android P. This phone gets some slating for the SD430 processor, but will be no issues, if you are not a gamer or running really depanding apps. The metal unibody gives it a premium feel and will not believe it only cost you £100.
£9.95 Delivery for NI customers or use slower collect plus service £3.95
This is the older version but still a good price The new Nokia 6.1 with Qualcomm SDM630 Snapdragon 630 is £229 at CPW - which is Android One so gets the latest updates
Good price for a solid quality spec phone, tempted but am a slave to the bezel free fashion now, heat for the thought though, love the copper finish too.
bit cheeky being a 3 handset..... still unlocked though? I had a play with one in carphonewh .... great screen! You happy with it? seemed snappy enough in the shop
Hmmm, three branding.
Received mine today, all accessories, like new as well, will upload photos in a short while. (nerd)

Def m8. Gotz an antutu of 120,000+ beats all the huawei lite phones. Forgot to mention its also got a fingerprint sensor
Bargain for a phone which is still very capable
A great phone. I got mine brand new for £200. Both sim slots can support 4G, but not at the same time. One of the slots will be relegated to 2G. Still going for ~£250 elsewhere brand new.
Did the live chat with them this morning..they said grade A1 was just an opened box (which the XA1 is),grade A2,A3 possible cosmetic damage....guessing they are possibly older stock and returns that have been locked on to networks and then unlocked and sold on by this company....no chargers etc supplied, just the phone.
You're hardly on topic. Giving subjective opinions on a product rather than an assessment of the price.
What's the story with these? Are they used,returns old stock or repaired etc...certainly great prices,tempted with the XA1,great wee phone.
Also the black XA2 version is £10 cheaper https://www.appliancesdirect.co.uk/p/a1/sonxa2bla/sony-a1sonxa2bla
As an alternative, the XA1 grade A is £99 https://www.appliancesdirect.co.uk/p/a1/13087369/sony-a113087369-xperia-xa1-smartphone
For the money can't really complain but the Snapdragon 430 is pretty low-end and that'll be the cause of any lag, though at least Nokia/HMD are keeping it pretty stock which helps.
MrsG has this. Highly recommended
I have one. Its trundling along slowly now. I got mine 99 quid new on a Bank hols hotukd a while back. Its updated a few days ago recently to Android 8.1 and has May's security update. It had a bug where I could not switch on wifi unless I rebooted and started with prev firmware update. That bug is fixed in latest firmware. It sips the battery. Its replacement Nokia 5.1 is being released with a Mediatek chip instead and possibly 30% cpu speed claimed improvement but am uncertain as to price.
My Nokia 5 (£99 from O2) was initially a bit laggy but the latest Oreo 8.1 update transformed it's performance. Much better camera app too as part of the update. The screen is sharp and bright and it has a premium feel. All in all a terrific phone for the money.
90 day warranty :/
Project treble makes it easy for OEMs to update their phones. HOWEVER there is no evidence that lazy OEMs will care.
Just a heads-up to anyone thinking of getting this deal, I received mine this morning (went for the next day delivery) and it came in the original box with charger and B&O earphones. Okay, the box had been opened but a nice surprise nonetheless.
https://www.androidauthority.com/project-treble-818225/ I think it's Android Authority who also have a very long and detailed post about it too, but suspect you don't want to read that.
What's project Treble?
Should be back in stock in a week or so.
Well I paid same price (actually worked out around 215 because I bought credit online) for this in cex in october. It was a grade b but came like new, albeot unboxed with only chatger and eject pin. Cex also gives 2y warranty. I dont think I would pay the same fot his now. Device is good though and I actually stuck with it until like a week ago, which fir me is not so obvious as I change phones frequently, but the price should be a bit better by now I suppose.
back in stock. No 'free' P&P this time.
Was really impressed with this until the screen developed a fault. I would have accepted a replacement but BB messed up with the processor it is clearly under powered, shame.
Thanks for your opinion.
Hanging on (barely) to my passport silver in anticipation of KEY2 being announced in a week . .
Watch jerry rig on YouTube.
