I wouldn't touch hitechelectronics with a barge pole. 12 month Warranty they offer is worthless beyond the period of eBay buyer protection/PayPal protection as there is no way of getting them to honour it. They will use every excuse imaginable to squirm out of warranty claims/repairs. I bought a Google pixel grade b on a previous deal which stopped working after 6 months they refused to repair due to there being a couple of cosmetic scratches on the case (present when purchased and not connected to problem with phone). They still haven't returned phone to me and ignore all messages. Avoid at all cost..
Gone for one thanks, I think its a brilliant price for what you are getting. I was going to go for an S10 at some stage as my S8+ battery is packing in. I love smaller handsets back from the days of the Galaxy S7, as I find a lot of the bigger flagships are really awkward one handed.

Prefer rear fingerprint sensors to in screen ones as they respond quicker/more accurate and for me the biggest selling point is an amazing camera and latest stock Android updates (without a load of bloatware). Great to see a headphone jack as well (praise the sun).

I only had two concerns 1) The processor speed - Plenty of reviews say Google are constantly updating the Pixel 3a and from what I've seen in videos it runs lovely and 2) No Micro SD, however if Google do offer photo storage that will help and there's still tons of storage for everything I need. I've had a couple of SD cards corrupt before now so it will be nice to forget about them.

Massive heat added!

That was my concern with the "OEM packaging" label on this deal. It's amazing how many sellers are protected by ebay now and are able to keep their 100% feedback despite some really dodgy practises. I bought a "new" phone from a powerseller a while back that was described as being "brand new" and "sealed" but when it turned up, it had a seal over the top of the original seal and the contents were less than pristine. I left negative feedback (incredibly rare for me to do) but it was misleading to say the least and to add insult to injury ebay removed my neg, wouldn't explain why and steadfastly refused to reinstate it. I don't normally get such a bee in my bonnet about things but that really got my goat.

Original Equipment Manufacturer


Believe it or not I did work that bit out but does it mean it's in a Google Pixel box or plain packaging?
Thoughts on manufacturer warranty, will it be honored from a seller like this?
This is pretty good, thanjs
Yeah good price and all that but is it legit?
Appears to be a UK model

"so basically just means official Google packaging" was left out of the quoted comment there. Original box
Can anyone confirm if this is indeed the UK model?
49500 positive feedback score so seems legit to me, think i might get one

No there isn't, but you do get free storage for your photos with Google. It also gives you the option to delete all photos that are already backed up, so that saves a lot of storage space

I didn't mention it in the op as this seller normally sells stuff from the USA but according to the product details it looks like an UK model

But to be 100% sure you would have to contact them. You can always return it within 30 days.

It's a fantastic deal and very tempting but for the fact that it's so damn ugly.

I have a feeling Google will only cover warranty issues through registered dealer purchases, which I imagine is unlikely in this case.
It doesnt appear to be accepting the code 'PAID20' at checkout?

Some dodgy practices so prevalent, especially by eBay sellers, like resealing, that 'sealed' no longer means 'in original box' so it has to be reinstated 'in OEM box' AGAIN...

'Brand new' can now mean 'open box return' or 'open, never used' with who knows how many weeks' use...

However, in this case thanks to Google warranty I think you can buy with confidence - when you get phone first thing guys contact Support with imei & serial number on outside of box, without breaking seal (if there's any ) and get confirmation by Google that it's supported, under warranty, otherwise return unopened

How does this compare to a galaxy A70 in terms of specs? Never been impressed with the camera on my A70 and the finger print scanner drives me nuts, but I don't want to move from it to something that isn't an improvement in speed/power etc. Thanks
Pulled the trigger as my S8 is driving me nuts. Not paying silly prices for flagships but want a decent camera with reliable performance.
