Good plan, should cover pretty much every one. When you take into account the handset cost this is actually a good deal.

Imagine many will vote cold on some anti Apple principle or other, but hope it helps someone.

Unless you’re absolutely desperate for an iPhone X, surely you’re better off waiting till the Autumn to see what is released.

Apple are using a Samsung-made OLED not an LG one. I doubt they'll change that with any future models, given that LG are quite far behind Samsung in terms of P-OLED quality control and manufacturing capability. If they use an IPS in one or two of the models though that will likely be LG.

Well in fairness that is literally the purpose of a business, and their duty to the shareholders.

So you got a £1,149 phone on a contract which totals around £1200 over 24, with unlimited calls, texts and 25gb of data in the launch month....... yeah, right!
Edited by: "david_robinson94" 28th May
Effectively £9 a month for unlimited calls, texts and 25gb of data and the deal is voted cold.

Ah well, I suspected that’d happen.
I expect -1212 cold votes ;-)
Good deal. Heat added. Not for me though. I am moving to Android bye bye Apple

I'm going the other way in the last two years I've had two s7 edges and to s8 pluses, build quality of late has been shocking.

So are you trying to say the s5 and s6 had better build quality than s7 and s8 ? If you are i doubt youve ever held any of them
Crazy price
Even if the £1212 is spread over 24 months its Dam expensive !
This is actually a very good deal, I tried to get EE to match this when I was upgrading and even with retentions, all I was offered was unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB(!) data for £50pm + £300 upfront.

Nope never had the s5 or s6 I was firmly a note user, having had the 1st 3r and 4th. I wasn't a galaxy owner up until the s7 edge. What I'm saying is that Samsung are producing some c**p when it comes to durability. My first s7 edge developed screen problems and finally shut Down my second one developed a WiFi problem. My first s8 plus stopped charging and my second one keeps dropping signal. I know it's not a network issue as its a dual sim (purchased directly from Samsung) and it happens on both sims from different networks. So I have taken my partners old iphone 6s and so far have been impressed with the phones usability and how long the battery lasts, the phone holds only 83% of its original charge but easily matches the s8 pluses battery life. (yes im aware the s8 plus has a bigger screen so will use more power)

Apple were reported to be negotiating a price reduction with Samsung.
Even with those reported folding phone screens Samsung are still likely better off, profit wise, letting Apple use them.

Managed to persuade a die hard apple fan to leave and she got Huawei p20 pro, 30gb internet, unlimited calls. £33 a month, no upfront fee.
She loves the phone.
The apple X is a bloody great phone but other manufacturers, especially Huawei are making similar quality products at nearly half the price

Samsung makes as much (if not more) money from Apple than it does from selling its own flagship phones.

Why would you persuade someone to leave? Seems quite 'involved' for something that is ultimately just a phone. Quite risky in my experience to get people moving platforms, as if they decide they don't like it a few months later they'll blame you .

How do you define quality? 'bricks and mortar' or software? My P20 Pro is definitely not as polished as an iPhone in terms of software. It's a bit of a turd in fact. I'm not saying iOS is perfect or anything like that but I'm already wondering if I should swap to a Pixel, or even a Samsung, and there's no way I would recommend this phone to anyone over an iPhone, Samsung or Pixel based on my personal experience. Huawei seem to be very immature when it comes to the software on their devices - and nice as the P20 Pro is in terms of its build quality, it's the software that makes up most of the important parts of a phone.

Screen size. Huge screen estate on a relatively small frame. Tick p20

Battery size. 4000ah battery, genuine 2 days battery stamina. Tick p20.

Software. Android is now nearly as slick as apple. Ok agree the Huawei software isn't upto apple standards but it's so powerful that it handles the software well.

Camera. For many people camera is very high on the list of priorities
33873552-BKsHz.jpgDxoMark which assess dedicated cameras now assess mobile phones. P20 pro stands in first place.

Memory. On apple products you have only in built memory. Considering how cheap it is to expand memory it's ridiculous apple demand extortionate prices for bigger memory phonesm the p20 has a generous level of memory with additional expandable memory.

Huawei always add a big premium on new phones and price comes down relatively fast. It's nearly 50,% cheaper.

For the above anyone who is willing to pay over a thousand pounds for a little box that makes calls and and can take silly emojli pictures is a bit sily

I suppose it all comes down to ones point of view. I could spend £600-700 on a solid high end Android handset, or I could spend £800–1000 on an iPhone and know that I’ll get £200-400+ back 2 years later on resell.

I just sold my iPhone 6s Plus 64gb for £275. It cost me £699 directly from Apple on the 1st of October 2015. I got 40% of my original cost back after 2 years and 7 months of solid use.

To me, when you factor in the resell value, which is about non existent in the Android market, then I might as well get the iPhone as it is my preference and I’m not really spending any more on the device, if anything I’m probably saving money in the long run

Tbh I wouldn't even get the p20 pro. I have the mate 10. Got it for £375. Which costs nearly a third of the apple X. The p20 pro is marginally superior to the mate 10

True I stand corrected but at 128gb built in that will suffice. It's double of the £1000 64gb apple X. You have to pay a whopping £150 more to get the 256gb version

DXO doesn't mean anything. It's a load of old tripe. At one point they said the Sony Z2 was the best camera phone in the world. Their metrics are all over the place. That's not to say that a good DXOmark and a good camera are mutually exclusive - they're not - but in the case of the P20 Pro I'm finding it to be a huge disappointment as a camera.

You're forgetting that Huawei make a 512GB P20 Pro with an under-screen fingerprint scanner for something like £1500.


They're completely different phones running completely different operating systems. A lot of people have invested a lot of money in apps and content on Apple's ecosystem and enjoy using Facetime and iMessage. Whilst you don't, it's an oversimplification to suggest that it's as binary as 'this is cheaper and has X features so it's better value for money'. Value for money is more than just a series of ticks on a specs sheet for many - it's about the day to day use of a device, the apps you use or need and how much value and enjoyment you get out of your apps and how much you enjoy using that device - as well as its eventual resale value. I can tell you as the owner of a P20 Pro that I'm not enjoying anywhere near as much as I did the iPhone X. Would I pay £300 or more to swap? Absolutely, if I could afford to. And that's a completely objective opinion I've reached based on my own wants and needs and my own user experience from paying for the phones out of my own money - unlike reviewers. Not only that but the P20 Pro at £650 won't be worth bobbins by this point next year.
