No idea. People may confuse 10 Pro with non Pro version. Because normal version going around £450.
Edited by: "Bigspin" 20th Jan
Cex were selling this exact same version (10 pro Voda A) for £495. Huaweipromo (£100 cashback) being in at that time meant BNIB was £545 (645-100 at mobilephones.co.uk). Guess CEX raised the price as promo now finished!

Just to correct you, the promotion didn't involve mobilephones.co.uk, it was mobilephonesdirect.co.uk.
And this is still a good deal despite it going cold, probably the cheapest non new in the uk.
People haven't got a Scooby about a good deal if it hit them in the a###
Definitely once of the best phones on the market at the moment. Heat from me.

Make sure this has the European rom otherwise you may have problems with updates and trouble with connecting to 5GHz wifi as some region specific phones don't have the channel bands, I have the Mate 9 and Mate 10 middle east version (much cheaper than UK) and neither can even see the 5GHz wifi on my sky network, my Netgear mifi or my Netgear work router.

Because it’s CeX where grade A can also mean ‘well used’, items are barely even tested and you know they bought it off some mug for like £300 just to sell it to you for nearly double.

EDIT: they bought it from someone for £256...

I've always had things (phones) delivered by what they call
'Free Economy Express Shipping service, orders are normally delivered within 6 to 8 working days'.
Apparently it is still insured against loss or damage.
Not sure who they use. Some say they have a drop off point in France

I don't think they'd make a living giving £500 for this handset in trade, plus as you say if there's a "mug" out there that will sell it to cex then that is there perogative, no?

So if you use the free option you don't get charged customs?!

That was the Huawei p10 plus. The mate Pro is a flagship phone

Well I wasn't (twice) I think you don't get charged anyway (they say) but with Chinese sellers I generally choose the non carrier method if I can. YMMV

The technology industry generally works on 20% margin - that’s pretty well documented. CeX thinks they can openly show they’ll double up on most things. You’re entirely right, it’s their prerogative but they could offer £350-400 out of it, still do fine and not stitch people up. You also have to consider that anyone who buys this and chops it in again so soon for cash may do an insurance job on it later - CeX will protect you but it’s annoying if you’ve had it happen to you personally, which I have. I guess just let someone else make that decision.

It is a very good phone but I’d pay a bit more and get it elsewhere and brandnew.

I honestly didn’t realise you were the same poster until you explicitly pointed that out. I just saw two mediocre CeX deals and commented on them because they’re well known for overcharging for poorly graded stock - of course CeX is cheaper than brand new, you could post tons of alleged bargains but it’s totally hit or miss what you get. Ask anyone else. And find a new ‘Dad joke’ for the next time I reply please

LOL, touché
Hmmmm. There's this fairly unknown auction site called eBay....

Got a Mate 10 Pro for £485 last week. Seller had used it for about 10 days, in "as new" condition. Certainly not any worse than what CEX would call "Grade A". To me, it looked brand new.

If you're anyway buying something that's not sealed (i.e. CEX Grade A), go to eBay. You'll likely find far better prices, and you still have buyer protection.

Well said. I guess most would buy new if close to 2nd hand price - for e.g. £599 at CPW . (Unless one had CeX vouchers lying about!)

Nots not really true.

Ive taken an xbox one in before and they've said no as they had an issue with the control (slightly delay).

Your CEX is just lazy.

They charge far too much for most things though despite paying f all.

So at least half of your post is accurate

I didn't specify what 'my CeX' was nor do I sell to them any more after I took a brand new iPhone 5 in and they tried to offer me the grade C price because the Apple stickers and SIM eject pin inside the little cardboard slip weren't in there. I can imagine maybe they are more discerning before handing money over to customers but they certainly don't take ownership of issues.

Their actual definition of grade A is original box and accessories, item in good condition (light scratches acceptable). I guess they didn't take yours as it wasn't a grading issue but by their definition was faulty. Maybe they are just better with consoles (who knows) - in fairness, they started out as a games and consoles shop, and people who only trade those items speak pretty highly of them.
