Found 8th Jan
Phone costs £999, so the contract runs at £16.99 a month which is pretty reasonable.

Also included is 24 months of Sky Sports or NOW TV or Spotify.

Am aware that many people think this is a stupid price to pay for a phone and will down vote based on their opinion as opposed to how good the deal is for the product in question, but hopefully it will help someone.

Tax avoiders. No idea how good the phone is though - can someone convince me why I should invest in one this expensive?
Cold for the overall cost
Cold for the gall to charge a Handset fee
Cold for the Tariff
Others will vote it cold simply because of it being an iPhone at a ridiculous price.
This "Incredible" iPhone 10 will be remotely slowed down by Apple when the "Amazing" iPhone 11 comes out in a few months.

Ostensibly to look after your batteries; aww, how thoughtful of them.

No. Just buy something like the Ulefone Power 3, similar/better spec for £166 currently on preorder.

Not tax avoiders, they operate within the law. Blame the laws that allow them to shift tax into safe havens, not the company for exploiting it.

As to the phone itself and is it worth it... Well the reviewers generally seem to agree that it is worth the price tag, the telegraph for example: telegraph.co.uk/tec…00/


Will it be worth the price tag to you, well that is the real question and I suppose only you could answer that.

For me personally, I'll stick with my iPhone 6S Plus for another year. For my sister who was ready to upgrade, well she compared this to the iPhone 8 Plus and decided that the extra was worth going for the X, she tends to keep her phone for 4 years like I do and so finds it worth getting the best available at the time.
Summer never comes with this deal
The other one posted yesterday was better
Personally I think the X is over-priced but this is actually a good deal. I’m on that same tariff as a sim only plan and the best price I could get is £18/month.

If you want an X then this is a fairly simple and painless way to get one.

Edit - and includes Spotify which is worth £120/year

I've the Axon 7. And a 12 month sim only with Vodafone. £16 per month for 20gb data, unlimited calls and text. Much cheaper than over a grand for an iPhone with little data.

They are tax avoiders. Tax avoiders operate within the law which is what apple and large multinationals often do. You're thinking of tax evasion. theguardian.com/new…ers and google.co.uk/amp…aid these are recent news items on some of the scandals surrounding apple

Exactly this! If you factor in the best deal for 8gb a month with Vodafone at £18 a month, plus the 12 months spotify worth £120 a year and that's before any potential cashback with TCB or QUIDCO, then the phone is only costing £855.99 over the term of the contract ([£18 x 24 months = £432] + £120 = £552)

As for vodafone being garbage? Purely anecdotal! Every single user on here will cite a different experience! I for one have had nothing but perfect seamless service both home and abroad with my current deal, and the one and only issue I had with a charge for an MMS that I queried, they immediately credited the 35p to the bill. No issues whatsoever. In fact, to the point that I moved to them for my home broadband, which has been equally as good for me! But that is just me, for where I live but also where I travel to and from!

A £180 mobile as opposed to just under a grand for an iPhone. £1407 for a contract with 8gb of data.

We get it Robert, the budget £180 mobile makes you happy and does everything that you need. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

For those that are happy to pay for the experience of a premium device that is also ok. It may well not be for you, but down voting just because you personally would not buy something goes against the point of this site.

I think my neighbours purchase of a Bently is absolutely ludicrous, but I don't go on about how my Seat is so much cheaper and is almost as good.........

Fair enough. However I don't get why there is a "scandal" in the first place. The only scandal is that the laws are designed to allow this to happen.

The problem is with the law makers, not with the companies.
As i was pointing out. Some were comparing a mobile thats just under a grand, to something that £180, a fair point to make i think. At the end of the day its personal choice like you say.
You can get better SIM only deals then this. E2save have this SIM only for £10 a month via cashback. Apple do 0% finance on phones. So effectively the same deal for £1200 over 24 months. Cold from me
Apple never had much success on this site, to top it off, with the recent announcement - phone deals are unlikely to receive positive press, regardless of their intentions.
