Is this a UK based seller? With UK returns?

Is this a UK based seller? With UK returns?


From t&c: "Any reference to "We", "Us" or "Our" is to Expansys UK Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with company number 2870061 and with Our registered office at Network House, Globe Park, Marlow, Buckinghamshire, SL7 1EY, UK, VAT No: 781498191"
If in doubt, pay directly by UK credit (i.e. an unquestionable debtor-creditor-supplier arrangement) to benefit from section75 protection where the UK credit provider is jointly and severally legally obliged to perform the duties of the vendor.

Thanks for info. Looks like one to skip anyway!

Its a decent phone for the money, battery life is especially good.

Reviews seem to suggest it was OK for £150.

I guess it's getting cold as you can get much more for your money from China. However, seems a good option for people that want a UK based (next day) supplier.

Expansys are a known company, and Honor (Huawei) are one of the largest phone manufacturers in the world. The phone itself is cracking for the price, so why is it one to skip?

VMall is the official Huawei/Honor sales website

I agree that Huawei are one of the largest phone manufacturers in the world. I meant one to skip based on the cold rating and average reviews.

Isn't it odd that it's currently -56 degrees, but all comments are +ve?

I am not sure why this, or the Honor 8 post yesterday are cold, both good deals. HUKD is often manipulated though.

Its odd. At £120 this is a good deal for a good phone. We've been using Huaweis for a few years now and never had any issues with any of them.

They do everything a smart phone should do, and generally do them well. Maybe because the name isn't that well known to many folks they are confusing them with the cheaper Chinese phones.

Yes, it's Honor's own site that is managed by Expansys. I've ordered before with next day delivery, no problems at all.

Perhaps some of the cold voters should come on and tell us what phones are better for £120 (preferably officially available in the UK).

Not for HUKD.

I don't have a 5c, but do have a 7 - a couple of friends do have 5c's and they both really like them. The main complaint in many reviews is EMUI (the skin) on the Android build. To be honest, it's never caused me any issues, and the only phones that interest me at present are the Honor ones, as they currently offer the best value for money at present in my opinion.

I'm not a huge fan of EMUI to be honest, but it takes 2 minutes to install Google Now Launcher (or whatever) and change it.

On some of the EMUI builds, it's quite aggressive at being the dominant launcher, but yes, I agree.

I didn't know that, it works fine on the 5c and I'm very happy with mine.

Does it then behave like stock Android? I've got a Moto 4G so would like to stay as close to stock as possible.

Can't understand why this is going cold, but can see why the Honor 8 deal went cold, as it was recently £80 cheaper from Sainsbury's.

It changes the launcher only. The rest of the system and notifications centre is remains EMUI, which is quite a lot different to stock Android.

for value this is one of the best phones I've ever owned, and I have the s7 and the 1+3T to compare it to. I did spend time disabling apps I don't use and greenifying all I could. Left stock, unrooted and BL locked, now running nougat. Did change the launcher to Nova though. Heat added.

​Better than s7 and 1+3T! Really?

What do you mean by greenifying?

They didn't say it was better than the S7 or 1+3T - they said better value.

Greenifying is pruning the installed apps and killing un-needed processes to try and get as much battery life as possible. EMUI (like many Chinese devices) automatically suspends a lot of processes in the background by default to do a similar type of thing.

Deal expired. The next best deal is probably the gold version on Amazon @ £135.
