HTC U11 128GB dual sim 4G SIM FEE/ UNLOCKED - Silver (inc £10 off £400 Code) - £508.99 @ eGlobal

Found 12th Jul
Cheapest I've seen for this phone, even without the £10 off voucher code JULY10AW.

Top rated camera on DXO Mark.

Mixed reviews of eGlobal Central on HUKD posts, some claiming delivery from UK, others stating delivery will incur import duty.

Either way it's a good price for this phone which has not yet been under £599.99 at major UK retailers.

This price is basically the UK price excluding VAT. Nothing would convince me to shell out that kind of money with eGlobal, too many variables and diabolical or non existent support if anything goes wrong. Good luck

No, you can't buy this in the UK.

I guess that's the risk with these cheaper sites. Nothing UK-based compares at the minute though. perhaps not been out long enough?

The UK-variant U11 is £629.99 at CPW but if you're being picky about the exact spec then fine, but it doesn't change the fact that I wouldn't risk that kind of money on eGlobal. I might risk £100-200 on a phone that isn't physically available over here, like a Xiaomi. Anyway, it's your money, I was just adding my opinion which probably reflects what most others on HUKD feel.

You're probably right and I don't think we'll see the dual-SIM over here natively either. Just too much to risk for me personally and HTC are good but have never really had a great comeback since the M7

Yeah, although double the on board storage and 2gb more ram isn't an insignificant spec difference to be picky about.

You can buy the dual sim version from HTC in the UK as long as you are happy with red.

Like I said, if you want to risk £500+ on a grey import then more fool you. I honestly think in a phone where you can expand the memory with a card, 64 or even 32 is adequate and I can't see more than 4GB RAM being any use other than bragging rights. But it's personal preference and I would accept losing that storage and extra RAM for the peace of mind of buying from a legit UK source, it's just not enough of a saving to be worth the risk (to me).

Didn't say that I did. What I said was it's not the same as the UK model. If you don't have a use for extra ram and storage that's fine, but other people do.
