I'm back with another iPhone deal from Smartfone. You can get a Rose Gold iPhone 7 Plus with 256gb of storage for £749, much cheaper than Apple's price of £919. This price is unlocked, and they have other colours in locked/unlocked variants for £719-749 (e.g.. Black, Gold, Silver and Rose Gold for £719 on O2)

Heat from me just because its apple

Hot Apple Pie (_;)

Decent price for this. People are voting cold because it's still expensive for a phone, but for this particular phone, it's definitely a good deal.

It's like cold voting a 20% off list price Ferrari. People can't afford it, but it's a hot deal for those who can.

I've had brand new items from these guys and they come brand new and sealed with full manufacturer warranty.

Yesterday's phone for today's prices? No thanks!

This makes the S8 look like a bargain!

I'm close to pulling the trigger on this. Is this UK version? How long is the guarantee?

Well if you didn't know, iPhones hold the value much better than Samsung. In two years time iPhone will be worth about 50% of its original value, where Samsung probably 30%.

In two years time the iPhone will also still be running the latest software, the S8 ?? probably not !!

It's been a long time since that were true. Just check the trade in price of an S7 vs an iPhone 7.

I'm fairly sure that you may return it within 10 (or 30?) days if it has been opened, but you will be refunded the price of Grade A etc.

Don't be surprised if the iPhone 7 benchmarks higher than the S8. iOS coding is by far superior than the garbage software on Samsung.
Whats the point in upgrading Android phones when apps and games dont keep up with the hardware as the same pace as iOS apps and new iPhones.

What an idiotic statement, are you going to compared the sales of RR to Ford next? Samsung make various types of phones, Apple make only smartphones and its Apple who make the most profit from smartphones.
iPhone outsells Galaxy. Other than the display, Samsung copy everything from Apple. So sad they change stock Android to the point of mimicing iOS.

What a moronic comparison. Are you suggesting an iPhone is a Rolls and a Galaxy S is a Ford? You are aware a RR costs like 10-20 times the amount right?

If iPhone are so superior why are Apple buying much of the components including screens from Samsung? I tell you why, it's because Apple make nothing, they merely assemble components bought and squeezed hard from various sweat shop supply chains in the far east, hence the huge profit they make from mugs like you.

At least Samsung physically make their own CPUs, GPUs, AMOLED screens etc.

That comment 5 years ago I'd have accepted but, today?, who's copying who now?

But comparing every phone by Samsung to a Apple smartphone is reasonable?
Samsung are a good component manufacturer but when it comes to assembling them and writing the software, they're years behind Apple's software engineering. There's a reason why iPhones are faster and lag free. I've not come across any Galaxy that didnt start to have niggly software issues few months down the line. I dont own a Samsung S7 but my friends and family member do, theres more stutter in the S7 than my 2yo Xperia Z3, games dont perform better either on the S7. iPhone 7 is still the fastest and smoothest phone out there. Have Samsung copied their force touch screen yet and called it S Pressure or something?

iPhone designs its chipset specifically to run with their software; Samsung are relying on an underlying operating system built to run on multiple chipsets and hardware variations. This is partly why you get far more variations in performance and why many Android users experience slowdown over time. Another reason is that Android as a platform is far more open to modification and allows for far more background processes - for example Google Photos just automatically uploads in the background where on iPhone you have to open the app, and even then it closes the connection if left idle in the background for more than five minutes.

I use both iOS and Android and the advantages of each can also be disadvantages. I'd say that for someone who wants a load of storage and who enjoys iOS this is a great price. Despite criticisms about its bezels, the 7 Plus has (in my personal opinion) the best camera around at the moment, fantastic speakers will be kept up to date for years. It's also lightning fast.

I still keep my LG G5 (and occasionally other Android devices) around though, as I really like the platform for its own merits: the two are not directly interchangeable simply because one has better hardware than the other though. Not for me anyway.

You could argue Samsung rely on Google for the most important part of any smartphone. Isn't that what the vast majority of people buy into, rather than where the nand flash memory came from?

I don't own either, btw.

All the manufacturers rely heavily on Google - Samsung would be stuffed without Google, since Tizen was a washout OS that basically got relegated to smartwatch usage, having been touted as the future of Samsung at one stage. Apple also relies on Google to a large extent - the success of Windows Phone (or lack of) is in my opinion partially down to a lack of support from Google, which in turn led to lack of support or discontinued support from other developers. The dominance of Google services in my life is why I would choose the Pixel as my Android device if I could afford it, and why if I do start using Android as my main platform again it will be with the Pixel 2.

Indeed. Kind of the point I was trying to make. No smartphone peddler is an island.

Samsung never outsells Apple with their flagship units. They sell tons of crap basic models (like the £50 ones) but Apple always make more money because they sell more of their flagship range. In the launch month of the S7, the iPhone 6S (which was 7 months old at the time) and the iPhone SE (month old) outsold it.

You contradict yourself, the SE is not a flagship it's a facelifted 4S.

What? The SE is an iPhone 6S in the size of a 5S. It could be considered a flagship, because it had its own event and was the same as the current flagship but smaller. Still, that's not the point. What I was trying to say is that Samsung never sells as many phones as Apple with their upper-mid to flagship range of phones. It's always the rubbish ones that they make little to no money off of.

Carphone Warehouse is one of the worst examples you could give. They have contracts with Samsung and is why they always have the special colours etc. Apple doesn't need Carphone Warehouse because they have their own stores which bring in much more money. Samsung relies on Carphone Warehouse because their last stores in the UK closed down due to poor sales. 'iPhone is dying'? Did you not see how great Apple's holiday season was compared to others? The last financial quatre saw growth - did Samsung see the same?

Apple stores are a poor example also there literally none within 125 miles from me whereas there are probably 20 CPW stores in that same radius so obviously the Apple store will be busier.

I actually have an HTC 10 which I purchased after 4 consecutive iPhones (last one did it for me, was a very troublesome phone).
But I have preordered a S8 on a whim, it will be my first ever Samsung so I hope I don't regret it....

The S8 looks beautiful and all, but when I first tried it in our building, it lagged so much it was barely usable. Of course it must've been a problem with just the phone, but when I tried it again in Carphone it lagged again a lot (but not to the extent). It just seems weird on a 2017 device and lots of Youtubers are reporting similarly. Also, (I know it's past by and so old now) I don't know if I can trust Samsung after the Note 7 problems or their washing machines. It's just worrying that you can pay for the top of the line products and receive such problematic things. Nonetheless, it is your choice, therefore enjoy your phone! X)
