If you missed the last deal, that was posted about a week ago where ID Mobile were offering the Huawei P8 on a 12 month contract for £19.50 a month, this deal might be of interest....

In actual fact this deal is slightly better cost wise, as £9.50 a month over 24 months works out to be £228!

For the £9.50 a month you are getting 300mins, 5000 texts and 500MB of data.
(If you want 500 mins, 5000 texts and 1GB of data, this is available for £12.50 a month, instead.)

However this price plan is different to the one posted the other week as it is on their "ShockProof" plan, which means call costs are capped at £5 over the monthly price plan.
More details are below:
idmobile.co.uk/hel…res

If you are unaware of the ID Mobile network, they are a "Virtual" network run by the Carphone Warehouse, which piggy backs off of the Three Network. In a very similar way, to how Virgin Mobile uses the EE network.

The Huawei P8 mobile, has excellent specs and is equivalent to many of the top of the range high end mobiles currently available where you would expect to pay £25+ a month. Also this phone is retailing for over £350+ if purchased outright.
(Currently on Amazon for £489!)
amazon.co.uk/Hua…+P8

Specs
- 5.2inch Full HD 1080p Screen with Gorilla Glass 3
- 2GHz Octacore Processor with 3GB of RAM
- 16GB of Storage
- Up to 64GB MicroSD Card Slots (Also doubles up a Dual SIM Tray so can be used as one or the other)
- 13MP Sony Camera with Dual LED Flash and Front 8MP Camera.
- Metal Unibody Design.

I have checked many reviews, and it is scoring 4/5 from most. But you need to bare in mind it is going up against £600 mobiles from the likes of Samsung, HTC and LG who set the bar.

TopCashBack are also offering £20.20 cashback on all 24 month contracts!

The phone alone is worth more than this. Hot! It's got to mean the P8 Lite and be some kind of error!?

was wondering the same is this the lite version?

I will jump on this deal if they have white version

Even though Huawei are becoming more well known in the UK, they are still to many an unknown... A company like Huawei is a multi-billion pound corporation, and they do these kind of deals with major recognised retailers, in this case Carphone Warehouse to gain some foothold in the UK market and to gain brand awareness.

Huawei have probably agreed to sell so many thousand of the handsets at a loss or at cost. They probably have some long term agreement marketing agreement in place, that benefits boths companies.

The specs on the website, are definitely that of the P8 and not the Lite version!

It's only £10.50 for iD Mobile contracts.

Purchased. Going straight back if it turns out to be lite version!

No definately £20.20!

ID Mobile have their own section on TopCashBack, don't click on the Carphone Warehouse Link! Also I can't see this £9.50 deal, on the CPW own website and only on ID Mobile's own website.

P8 Lite Spec

and
P8 Spec (Hopefully which we will be getting!)
consumer.huawei.com/en/…htm

Main differences:

P8 Lite - 1.2GHz Processor, 2GB of RAM, 720p Screen and 5MP Front Camera.

P8 - 2GHz Processor, 3GB of RAM, 1080p Screen and 8MP Front Camera.

If you go to the Huawei UK website, the P8 Lite is not shown as being available in the UK and P8 is exclusive to CPW and iD Mobile.

specs listed are for p8 (5.2 screen). So if it turned out to be the lite you could return for false advertising.

Hopefully I haven't read this wrong, but looks like you can get 300 mins, 5000 texts, 1gb data for 12 months on their Go To plan for 21.50 a month. Comes to £258, so extra £30 compared to this, but shorter contract

Is this available in store?

Looks like you are right! Didn't see that deal as a long way down their complex pricing list.

Ordered, thanks OP

Got a link I can only find that for 24 month?

This is a ridiculous offer! The phone is worth way more than the total amount of this contract. They regularly fetch close to £300 on Ebay for the handset alone. So even if you didn't want the phone, this is a free 2 year contract effectively, and with more money in your pocket than you started with at the end of it.

Have you seen this?

What languages are available on the P8,anybody know? Can't seem to find this info on the web..

Huawei are indeed huge in other markets such as IT/Networking, this is indeed the P8 (better spec) and it's a great deal.

They're also working with Google on the next Nexus phone so that will help increase their reputation outside of China.

expired?

Would do, but seems like the phone has disappeared off their website. When it was there is was about 7th or 8th contract down.

Sorry missed that, thought only other deal posted recently was the £19.50 one the OP mentioned

deal can't be found anymore !!!

Just got order cancelled email too

this website is a joke (ID that is)

Will this be network locked? Very tempted to get the deal and immediately sell the phone... will prices tumble on ebay?

deal can't be found anymore !!!

Expired
GONE

is it a dual sim?

Think it might have been a pricing error.

I'm paying £8.50 a month for sim only atm... so an extra £1 a month with a decent phone seems like a good deal for me.

Just need to check up on Three coverage though

Just ordered mine - hope it comes off!

Order cancelled. Says its based on my credit rating. Not a chance - I have a an excellent credit rating.
