it looks good, but I think the g3 is worth the extra money. Heat added anyway

The G3 is worth the extra money, I agree, but thats £90 extra, almost double the cost of this device.

Possibly I need to check my syntax more than my maths! £209.99 - £2.62 / 2 = £103.68 - but yeah I know what you mean

Good price for a very good device. Heat added.

seems pricey for average spec...cold

nice phone. used htcs but not this one. don't ever buy anything from Prestigio though....there's another company selling relatively inexpensive high spec phones but I wouldn't bother. heat added.

£40 more?!

UK consumers are getting a raw deal by paying up to hundreds of pounds more for the same tech products on sale in the US

Example?

Similar spec to the Moto G, but larger screen. Sense UI is very nice, and definitely worth extra but I don't think £210 is justifiable. Just my opinion

old tech. I got the m8 for 280 which is a far superior unit.

where did u buy the m8 from Matthew and was it new and sealed ?

nice find.

You'd be stupid not to buy the 4 bed semi at 270k.
