Can't see why this is considered value for money.

Why not? It got a verge score of 9, same as iPhone 7 plus, and the former has better camera.

Lifetime backups of full resolution photos and 4k video to boot!

Not forgetting latest security updates released monthly and Oreo update being released now!
I bought a Nexus 6P the day it was released for about £449 from what I recall. It's now a 2 year old device and software-wise runs practically the same as the day I got it with the only thing that's become worse being the battery life.

The 6P was massively ahead of the game in terms of software. I'm pretty sure I was running Android 8 beta on it about 5 months or so ago, which is laughable considering how phones like the Note 8 or S8 are barely even on Android 7.1.

Every single Nexus phone I've had has been great (4,5,6P) and the only things that have let them down have been battery life and camera (until the 6P had a good one) and lasted multiple years whilst still never becoming sluggish or incapable.

Im highly tempted to buy this since I know full well the Pixel 2 will no doubt be an £800 odd phone, and I don't want an iPhone/Samsung. The original Pixel would still easily provide two great years of use for £449.

I thought the 32gb would be a bad choice that I'd regret on my 6P but two years later I still have 7gb free. With Google backing up photos and stuff, there's barely anything I even store on the phone. The days of me being interested in the novelty of apps and games is long gone and mostly everything I want is streamed through 3 mobiles unlimited 4G for £25pm so I'm finding less and less need to even have large storage capacity.

Considering it had the best camera on a phone last year, and it's still has one of the best cameras this year I wouldn't really consider it mid-range.

Shows as £449 for me too online. Is the £419 price likely to be store specific?

Spec wise it's a bit old in the tooth. Compared to what we have now. And at this price. £300 would be better

As would say £250 or £200!

Oh, much better. Lower preferred.
Ooo this is good deal. If I didn't have iPhone 7 plus, I would certainly be popping in tomorrow. No bloatware, fast update, should remain a fast phone for a few years I think.

It's still considered as the best smartphone camera available at the min. This phone would probably last a good 3-4 years, well I would hope so. I would be very surprised if this went below £350.

Mid-range? It had the best processor available at the time haha. Also the best camera and its still one of the best now.
Pixel 2 coming soon, I hear. If I'm sticking to a budget, I'd go with a Moto. If not, I'd wait it out. £450 is too much money for year-old mobile tech, that will no longer be current in a month or two.

There's more to a phone than a good camera
Getting cheaper as the Pixel 2 is just around the corner! Great phone but I went back to Samsung.
Bargain!
About the price they should have been.

There must be a new Google phone incoming with all these price drops

no it wasn't a humble brag. I really like the unlimited storage and the camera. I'm a new parent, like new parent, I take a lot of pictures of my new son. While the iPhone is pretty good, the pixel is a generation better in camera. Oh and that screen

Hope this stays for a week or two. Will see what Apple iPhone 8 announcement is and if nothing spectacular may go for this.

Looks like a good deal. I've been loyal to iPhone and iOS for 10 years and may jump ship on 12/09/17 if iPhone is £1000

Main one on my radar is the Huawei Note 9 approx £375 amazon prime.

There is a youtube video on how to make android look like iOS in 10 steps, quite impressed if it works.

£1000 for a phone is getting silly, retina MacBook pro 128GB 2015 costco is £1025, great machine.
Edited by: "deleted1336857" 3rd Sep 2017
Cash back on quidco £10 or topcashback
Do i get this or the s8 pus for 619 at giffgaff. Im really not sure how far touchwiz has come and that was the main concern for me. The s8 wins in design, waterproofing, sd card, camera is similar but is it all worth it if the phone is gonna lag like all my previous samsung phones? Someone help me please.

While I strongly believe that any business selling non life essential goods should be able to sell at the price of their choosing, I agree if the Iphone is north of £1000 I’m also jumping ship. Used an iPhone since day one and tied myself in with the ipad and watch but now barely use the ipad and don’t feel the Apple Watch is that useful so ready for change I guess. I buy Apple because of the build quality, customer service, and for iOS realibility. Android devices in the phone space are now equal, minus the customer service (as they don’t have on the spot retail solutions like Apple).

Heat for this deal. 32GB not quite enough for me personally.
Personally still holding out until Pixel 2 is announced , all depends on the price as I thought this launched at a ridiculously high one, would really like pure android experience though.

Still using my HTC one m8 which I've had for nearly 3 years now , cost me about £500 at the time but considering how much I use it and how long it's lasted it's been worth it

Which android phone are you looking at if iPhone is £1000+?
I think a 2 year warrantee minimum is important at these prices.
I paid £699 for my 128GB iphone 6 in Sept 2017, I use with a mophie battery pack as iPhone battery shot.
I'm a heavy user and get the most of the iPhones functionality.
I've a moto £60 android that I've tinkered with but do prefer iOS
Would miss my apple watch and cardless payment and iOs

I'd say max for me is £799 maybe £849for 128GB iPhone 10th

This or a OP 5?

I have a OP 3 at the moment, which is still more than good enough for what I do, but I was going to give that to the Mrs as her phone has just died.

i thought its only 1 year. Any source for this?
Too bad the OP5 is the same price but completely destroys the crappy Pixel XL (Even the 3T is cheaper and better)

Can't see why this is considered value for money.

Because when something that was really expensive, becomes somewhat reasonable it seems like it's a good deal!
I went into a CPW store before I bought my new phone & asked about the Pixel. He said they had over stocked on them thinking people would buy them, they apparently sent the majority of the stock back. Once the reductions came they are selling but stocks are low. Could be BS but sounds about right to me. Sub £350 I may bite.
Going to wait to see what the Pixel 2 brings, but I'm also very tempted to go with the new LG V30, I listen to a lot of music so having the quad DAC on board will be a deal breaker for me, it even includes B&O earphones
