*EXPIRED* Brand new White Samsung Galaxy S5 Unlocked at Smartfonestore.com £434.99 Delivered

Found 5th Jun 2014
Brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 at Smartfonestore. Comes with:

• Samsung Galaxy S5
• Original Accessories
• 60 day SFS warranty
• Manufacturer warranty

Pretty good for a new flagship phone? Also, quidco should still be doing the £5 cashback for smartfonestore, so that could bring it down to £429.99

20 in stock at time of deal posting! 13.38 5/6/14

There is one on eBay for cheaper from e-cell; however, as scorpio has kindly pointed out that model is 3G ONLY. So this is the cheapest price online for a 4g Galaxy S5.

Looks like they've probably sold out, as they now only have a listing with the Octa-core version for £5 cheaper; 2 left if that suits you! - seems to be some concern that what smartfonestore have done is change the original listing to reflect what they're actually selling is the octa-core; those who have bought one and received it, what did you receive?

Thanks missgem!

Scorchio!

Whoever is giving this cold votes should just p1ss off the site to be honest, just shows how many idiots are on here. This is about £75 cheaper than the next lowest price I have seen for brand new. There appears to be a shed of cold votes on any Android deal when first posted.

Agree with the above - this is a cracking deal.............although I just this minute bought the grade A black unlocked S4 for £229.99 which in my opinion is outstanding value.

I know what smartfonestore say their grading system is like but what have people experienced for themselves?

Noooo there was an s4?! I looked earlier and it only had a couple of grade A but locked S5, and 20 of these new ones...

I bought a grade A iphone 4s. The screen and back was unmarked but the metal band had some (very) minor scuffs. Wasn't exactly mint, which was slightly disappointing, but then again it wasn't bad enough to go through the hassle of sending it back.

I have no doubt that they would have refunded me had I wanted to send it back and would happily buy from them again

Ahhhh thanks for clearing that up missgem! I did wonder why it hadn't been posted before when its being sold for that price!!!! Personally I'd say I would buy from smartfonestore over ebay from HUKD browsing/posting experience but thats a big discount..!

this one is brand new in box. Although, admittedly, I have now seen the eBay listing!

Be careful of the model number.Some of them are NOT the 4g version.I believe the one on "eBay deals" is just a 3G one.

you're right! looking at the description, it does say 3g...

3G only! And also that seller is banned on HUKD apparantly for violating some of the forum rules...
Edited by: "messiahcomplex8" 5th Jun 2014

The eBay ones are the 3G only G900H models - but that is fine for most and they have the double quad core processor too! (8 cores total, clocked slightly differently) which seem to be faster than the Euro spec snapdragon 801 with 4G

Both are great prices, but I think 4G coverage is too intermittent to worry about that now anyway - if you are buying sim free you can always trade up later when 4G really kicks in?

I literally had my wallet out. Although for a different deal, since eBay takes paypal :-P

Good spot for price OP - looks to be the cheapest at the moment for the 4G - difference between the eBay ones is highlighted here;

S5 H/F comparison

Looks to be just the 3G/4G and processor changes

Thanks all, I was not aware there were different variants of the S5 in the same way there was for the S4. I was about to get my wallet out for some reselling action!

Mate I ordered the only one they had and cancelled about 5 minutes ago as I realised they don't come with the original box and it is the Play Edition which I didn't want. If you call them now they may have got it back on the stock sheet.

According to the previous thread about grade A S4, they said quite a few people got boxed with accessories...

I just spoke to a guy at Smartphonestore and he said they don't sell with boxes or accessories, just a generic data cable. Wasn't worth the gamble/messing about returning if it didn't have the box as that shades £30+ off the resale value

ah darn... Maybe I'll hold off looking at their S4 stock then.

Btw I do think this is a good deal (or I wouldn't have posted it), but I personally couldn't justify the price difference between it and the S4 (but then again if the grade A S4 isn't boxed etc like in the previous post, then the price difference isnt as much after all.

I explained in more detail on a thread I just posted, but basically called them after what you said to check, and apparantly about 10 of the Grade Bs should be in original boxes with all the accessories AND the original screen protector on, with only minor scratches on the back cover/sides. Might be worth a shot, I've just ordered one :-D (and if its no good, its going straaaaaaaight back)

Ok so I lied, apparantly the other post that I posted has NOT registered... But if you want an S4 (and I think the google play one will be better than the stock samsung anyway), maybe think about it!

I would have paid that in a heartbeat for a boxed S4 but not really sure I want a used phone really. A hardly used/return would be good but I had my S3 for about 14 months before I sold it to CEX, boxed and without any signes of use so wouldn't want an S4 that could have been owned and used since release.

Fair enough! I agree tbh, at £220 quid there was a part of me which didn't know just why I'd paid that much for something used... But if what Smartfonestore have told me is correct; what with the boxed accessories and original screen protector on (if its the one I think it is, it'll be the one with tons of samsung rubbish written on top and therefore unusable until removed), then hopefully these will be otherwise like new. If not, I'll just return it, I think the main reason I bought it was to give me an excuse to get rid of my lumia 1020! I really like it, but its crippled by the OS... So with a new phone on the way I can finally sell it on (hopefully without too much of a loss!)

But since my deal didn't post, hopefully by the time I see my S4 there might still be some 'grade B in box' stock left, and I'll let you know the condition! (probably not worth posting a deal until I actually receive it anyway to verify... )

I'm in your boat - foolishly sold my Nexus4 (after 3 years with S, S2 and S3) for a Lumia 920 and after 2 months I am thoroughly cheesed off with it. I bought the Lumia 1020 through the O2 Refresh deal a month or so back to try take advantage of the Quidco but happily sold it within a day. Give me Android EVERY day of the week.

And I'd be happy if you would PM me if/when you do take the plunge and let me know what the condition is like as I am deliberating various handsets and conditions at the moment. Thought I had settled on the LG G2 but at £229 I would have gone for an almost new S4

I'd also settled on the G2 or OnePlus One that everyone keeps going on about atm, but if the £220 S4 works out I'll be more than happy with it... Plus, removable battery! The answer to my battery life problems. I also had the 920 as well (did you get it via tesco anytime upgrade as well?), didn't like it, sold it within 2 weeks, then got the exact same 1020 refresh deal... I have been using it for about 2-3 weeks now. It's ok, but compared to the ease of use of iOS (6) and the wealth of apps it just doesn't stack up. Nor does it stack up to the customisation of Android and again that similar wealth of apps. But that's our personal opinions, I'm sure others would vouch for windows phone!

Well there's nothing cheaper on HUKD threads... And the only ones we've found together on the thread so far is the 3G one on ebay... So do share a link if you've found a hotter cheaper price on ebay with a reputable seller!

£434.99 for a plastic crap!
