Seems to be end of life stock, since this phone (both 5 inch and the bigger xl at 5.5 inch) are popping up in other deals.

This is the flagship phone from google in 2016, it has 5.5 inch AMOLED screen, 128GB fast storage, 4GB RAM and an amazing camera. This camera is possibly in the top 5 in the world right now, easily the best phone camera under £400. Google also give you unlimited cloud storage space forever, so you can store all your photos in the cloud and have that 128GB storage for apps.

The camera doesnt stick out so you have a flat surface at the back which as far as I know google pixel line is the only flagship phones that give you that.

Because its end of life stock this is a true bargains of bargains. I asked them if it comes manufacture sealed and they said it does, so its brand new in original box with original accessories. On my order I asked them if possible to include a UK plug.

Don't forget 4% quidco (possibly priced at £224.28) and pay by a credit card that has no sterling exchange fee's (I use aqua)

Delivery is normally 2-4 weeks, ask them to say its a second hand gift and put a low value on the box so it gets past customs.

Also includes a phone jack

I'll report back when I get mine

In my time I've ordered a 12 inch tablet, 2 xiaomi phones and other bits and bobs (>10) and not once I have been hit by customs. When you order you can leave a message and just tell them to declare the goods as a gift , second hand and a really low value, they will do as you say (its a common practice) and 99% it will go through without getting hit by customs. I just placed my order so Im confident it won't but theres always a chance. But if its declared as gift second hand and cheap then customs have no reason to hit you and millions of parcels go through

Edit: it says the store is from Guangdong China, operating since 2012

I've purchased something from US a while ago. It was second hand and it was obvious was second hand, despite this, I had to pay custom charges. I was told the taxes are for everything exceeding a certain value, despite if it is new or SH. In the same time, I've purchased new goods from China and never pay taxes. I guess the best is to send it as a gift or as low value.

the chinese sellers understand being hit by customs puts a sour taste on the purchase, so they on most occasions put it down as a lower price and say its a gift without you having to ask them, because at the end of the day they want you to be happy and spread the news in the likely chance you order another phone from them. This has happened to me, I ordered another phone for a friend after how good my redmi note 3 was and my friends loved their phone. I'm a devote aliexpress shopper and have come to not mind the 2-4 weeks delivery time.

At the end of the day when you buy from uk your most likely just paying the middle man, why not go straight to the source and get it from china yourself

tbh if it says 2nd hand gift and its obviously from a company they should automatically open the item as gifts are only 'valid' if they are between individuals
if you are going to defraud then the better way would be low cost alternative electronics maybe

When Netflix UK earned £500m last year and paid no UK corporate tax – and got a €200k rebate. Makes you question the definition of fraud?

Pixel cannot be legally sell in China, guess where are those Pixel coming from? I bet they are coming from Europe or US.

Chinese Taobao are selling them in a much lower price, etc £150ish, those are the refurbished or repaired phones but they are selling them as new.

I can't say that they are 100% bad products but I will not take the risk.

Gotta love when people justify their tax evasion and failure to properly declare the value of an item because big companies avoid tax. I don’t want to seem like a moaner here because no one is perfect but JEEZ, just own up and be a bit more brazen rather than saying it’s ok because X does it (even though strictly speaking those companies aren’t doing that at all).

Make no bones about it: the reason these HK companies are so popular on HUKD is because they’re part of a tax evasion loophole that’s mainly possible because of the sheer volume of parcels coming through customs and the logistics of chasing them all up. Buyers are supposed to declare items over a certain value to HMRC but of course no one does. The prices here are very little to do with ‘cutting out the middle man’ and more to do with barely any tax being paid - either by the company at the point of acquisition or the buyer at the point of customs entry.

There’s no moral high ground here and high street UK stores can’t provide any competition to these HK stores as far as pure prices are concerned.
