It's not Debenhams, it's Debenhams Plus, it's a different company I believe.

I think this may be the same phone. Although the deal you posted is on the Debenhams Plus website the phones come from Laptops Direct but are dearer. Postage is free with Debenhams and I think it is £4.95 with Laptops Direct, but still works out cheaper than from Debenhams.

I know this because I recently ordered a phone from Appliances/Laptops Direct.

Free delivery with Debenhams, £4.95 delivery with Laptops Direct. The phone is £10 cheaper with Laptops Direct so still a better deal by a fiver.

I think you can get £20 off with a £1 which trial at Laptops Direct?

They did have that offer on but can't see it on the website now. I think you had to spend £200 though.

Seems like a great deal but slightly cheaper from Laptops Direct (£119.97 + £4.95 postage or free to collect from Huddersfield).

Interesting. I've been looking at the Xiaomi handsets but I'd rather buy something from a UK company.

Okay, so we now know the different price variations...but is the phone actually any good?

Had a elephone, now got an xiaomi - wouldn't go back to elephone, different league of manufacturer. Elephone continually let down their customers, gave up waiting for the R9 which was promised on the 10th November, latest in a long line of missed deadlines.
Had hoped they'd turned a corner with the launch of the S7 and R9, but same old elephone, S7 delayed and luke warm reviews, R9 has apparently sunk without a trace.

Judging by the specs it's pretty mid range but not bad for the price.

Honest review from XDA. Low capacity battery (2100 mAh) sets it back I'm afraid
xda-developers.com/ele…ew/

Only 2100 mAH battery
Redmi note 4 , 4100mAH battery plus cheaper
See other post

Nice deal. Almost regretting buying a galaxy 7

Front cam ? Only 1 mega pixel
Battery drains very quickly
Better buy Redmi note 4 from Ali express

I doubt its 1mp

I would recommend the Redmi - BUT Its will come from China and be MUCH MUCH harder to returbn/get money back


This is for people who want a chinese phone, instantly and if they don't like could EASILY return

Thanks for posting this. I didn't realise you could buy these brands in the UK. Browsing Laptops Direct I came across this deal for those who are hankering after a big screen with good specs.

I ordered the gold one last week. Not getting it delivered until 23rd though. I think I could have had it from next Tuesday onwards but I won't be available to accept the delivery until the following Monday. I liked the fact that you could choose the delivery day.

never regret that you have the best phone on the planet

Well, they also have the 16GB redmi 3s for 120. Not a bad deal at all considering they deliver in 2 days. laptopsdirect.co.uk/xia…asp

16GB redmi note 3 comes with 2GB Ram only

That is impressive specs for that price.

Very tempted. Battery is a bit off putting, but screen is lovely, with it's lack of bezels, slight curve and toughened glass. 1080p as well. Can't grumble.

Mediatek 1.3ghz processor over a Snapdragon is a bit wobbly, but 3gb ram, expandable memory and (importantly for me) it's from a UK stockist with a 2 day delivery. Swings and roundabouts.

I'll say it again though. If the Moto G4 had dropped in price a few months ago, I'd have been all over that instead! Their loss!

Think it's finally time to put my first gen Moto G out to pasture...

​Its actually a little cheaper from Laptops Direct...

​Its actually a little cheaper from Laptops Direct...



​Are Debenham's Plus and Laptop's Direct connected?

Their checkouts are near identical, they offer the same **** keys/phone finder add on product for £20 extra and they're both based in Huddersfield.

Bought through Laptops Direct by the way. £5 cheaper, for what looks to be the same company and they have marginally better reviews on review sites than Debenhams Plus, if it isn't connected to them.

Arrives in about a week. Will let you know what I think of it.

Can anyone confirm if it defo has USB C quick charge? Site says it does, but reviews say it doesn't.
Does it also come with a UK charger plug?

I would go for a Xiaomi and use eglobalcentral, it is 6-8 day delivery, but it comes with a 1 year warranty, Paypal for cover (they rlly are excellent), DPD delivery with no customs and for 60 quid more you get a Xiaomi mi5, snapdragon 820, 3GB RAM, 1080p, ultra slim, sleek, quickcharge 3, good cameraa with wide apertures, much much better phone

I got mine in gold from there a couple months back, amazing phone and good service, 3 phones from them now no issues, no customs and they ship international version only

This is decent for the money but 60 quid is not too much more, and the Mi5 is a flagship. with a meditek like that and Elephone's software and rep, this is a very average device imo

Just wanna say guys this company are an absolute joke to buy from if you need a return. even heard of products arriving broken quite often, have a look on review sites.

the company is actually near where i live and i bout a refurbished imac from them part finance part debitcard, after reading reviews of their cuatomer service about returns i got cold feet and cancelled before delivery by phone. got told that it was cancelled wouldnrecieve confirnation within a few hours but never did and no refund. called 3 days later was told same thing. waited 4 working days no refund. called again got same patter. 4 days later still said out for delivery. so on the end i emaiked the CEO.. got a refund within 30 minutes.

Have these guys or laptops direct imported a container of Chinese phones, or are they dropshipping?
