Found 17th Mar 2016
Huawei P8 Lite dropped in price again at CPW, top up needed or upgrade version making it £99.99 (£89.99 + £10.00 on vodafone).

In my experience all their PAYG phones are unlocked.

Voted hot. Still tempted by this.

But, each time I've tried to upgrade - and with a valid sim - at CPW, 'computer says no'. If it said no when I'm spending nearly £100 on a phone, computer likely to get my foot up its....

Tends to be an issue if the upgrade sim you use/put in, has not had 3-6 months of use with at least
2 topups and a call/text a few times a month.. not all the time but most!
This or the Vodafone Ultra 6+?
I got this during the last deal and can confirm it is unlocked. I was also told this by CPW staff. Very happy with mine, excellent value for money. I'm also getting between a day and a day and a half battery out of it with medium use.

I don't like the stock UI that comes with it so installed Nova launcher. This is much better IMO. Handset has some really nice software features out of the box. I'm very happy.

When ordering from mobile website they don't seem to ask any upgrade details, assume this means anyone can pay the £85 upgrade price??

Can you explain why it is a better phone ?
Trying to decide between these 2 for an upgrade from the Huawei Y550 .
I would also like to know why this is a better phone than the vodaphone ultra 6, (which i was just about to order)

They seem to have the exact same specs...
I'm on ee if I buy a 02 one will need unlocking?
I bought this when it was £79.99 for a PAYG upgrade. Nicely built phone & looks good for the money but it's badly let down by the quality of the screen. It's not very bright & has poor contrast levels. The screen on my old Moto G was a lot better.

No - it will come unlocked (as do most or all other phones from CPW).

Comparison between P8 lite and Ultra 6 as well as the Y550 to see the difference.

I suppose it comes down to what you want overall, a larger and more heavier screen at 1080p from the Ultra 6 or going for the lighter, smaller and less pixel screened P8 lite.

As well as the potential differences between the cpu/gpu, though the software of each will play a big part in terms of performance.
for some reason my Chrome fails with the following message

Thanks for that .
I can't really fault the Y550 ,its been a great phone for me ,the only reason I am thinking of upgrading is for a bigger screen and a better camera.
Think I will go for the Huawei P8 lite as the Ultra may be too big and guzzle the battery.

Damn. I have an eligible O2 sim I got like 2 years ago for 02 Priority discounts but I can't find the damn thing...know the number but can't get the code they send
I'd be eternally grateful to anyone who could provide an upgrade code and sim number...long shot. But I've given away quite a few games in the weekly steam code competition so HUKD karma may just work in my favour...

Tried this got right through to adding card details then it said "oops we couldn't find the page you're looking for" when I went to process the payment. Did you actually get an order confirmation?

Think I topped up a tenner on it but haven't used it in a while.

Do look at the comparison carefully, as the Ultra has a much larger battery rated at 3000mAh vs 2200mAh.
I also suggest looking for example photographs, can be found usually on individual reviews of each.

If there is a store nearby, play around with both if they allow you, best way to get a feel of both and make a decision.
Also have an EE PAYG sim that is definitely eligible but not an option for upgrade for some reason...seems pretty arbitrary.

Also having the same problem. Proceeds without asking for SIM details, but can never complete after entering card details.

Have tried on mobile with Chrome, Dolphin & Mozilla.

Have even tried on computer running a user agent switcher to tell it I'm using a mac / iphone etc... but either has the same problem, or on clicking to pay it reverts straight back to home page without any confirmation.
I might get this for my mum, she has EE pay as you go and has been with them for years. Is she eligable for an upgrade and the £85 price?

​I think it needs a call or text made every so often.
Not sure about o2, but I was told by CPW staff that to be eligible via Vodafone you have to have had the SIM for more than 6 months and have topped up at least £10 EVERY single month. There are going to be very, very few people who are eligible for this upgrade, if that is the case.
