LG G6 - 64gb . Audiophile quality phone £392.84 @ Eglobal central

Found 22nd May 2017
Expecting this to go cold fast as eGlobal but wanted to post for anyone out there needing a new phone and who loves their audio quality. Hadn't this for a week now myself and absolutely love it. Was previously using the HTC 10 for reference.

Works on most UK networks as it is compatible with most bands. On O2 myself and very good coverage.

Few significant improvements over the UK version. Mainly
- Quad Dac. Really makes a difference. Driving may Oppo Pm-3 and Sony Mdr-1a. Very good quality audio and a huge step up from the majority of phones
- 64gb on board storage. More the merrier
- Duel sim. For those who carry a work phone and want to combine personal and work phone.

As mentioned I ordered via eGlobal and no issues. This is my 2nd purchase off them and quite happy.

I was previously using a standalone DAP but getting rid of this now due to the audio ability of this phone

Legit company based in HK. Surprisingly quick delivery for a far east supplier, import VAT covered by EGC, UK returns, UK-enforceable S75 protection subject to qualification criteria, but generally not liked on HUKD.

Price has reduced since then.

I'm interested in knowing how EGC process credit card sales. Did you pay EGC directly via credit card? Thanks.

​Mine looked 100% new to me. Screen protector still on the phone. They are new phones
They sell new products unless specified. This is steal considering it's better than the UK version with the Quad DAC.

I've heard eGlobal are a bit hit and miss but most of the issues stem from poor turnaround times (we're talking months and months) for stuff that needs to be RMA'd and issues regarding delivery times during busy periods.
I'd say use a credit card for the extra protection if you use eGlobal to be on the safe side.

At this price I'd say it's well worth the risk for the money you save. I've taken the plunge and had an email through saying it's on it's way. I'll update this if it's still active when I get it.

I did, for the extra protection. Transaction just went through as normal as if I used a debit card.

Appreciate your response. Did you receive a payment confirmation from Worldpay or EGC / other? Not to be confused with any "thanks" or "order acknowledgement" msg from EGC. Thanks.

I believe I had a payment confirmation from Worldpay onscreen at the time of ordering but no separate email from them. I just had the one email from EGC with the order summary/receipt.

Thanks. I'm sure you can see I'm trying to confirm if WP is acting as a processor for EGC or as an "agent" (obviously agent may detrimentally impact on S75 cover). Possibly final Q: when you can view your CC statement, I would appreciate if you could confirm the payee as WP or EGC. Cheers.

Yeah no worries. Looking at my online CC statement which is pretty basic as it's a pending transaction but it comes up as "EGLOBALCENTRAL.UK" so I don't think WorldPay come into it. I'd say if you're uncertain then give it a miss, but I'll update here as soon as I receive the phone and let everybody know how it went.
Ordered the Platinum version, Thank-You

Great, that implies S75 may be enforceable if required. Would appreciate an update when the CC statement shows the transaction has passed from pending status. Thanks for your persistence.
EGC are excellent value. Just hope that there isn't any issue with the phone.
Wow good deal for a phone that has only recently come out. I will be waiting for sub £300.
EGC is a safe company. I bought a nexus 5x£230 A one plus 3t £380. And a canon dslr costing £1600. All delivered with in 6 days. All new. No issues.
i dont have the lg g6 far east version (and i was gutted the uk didnt get the dac) however having had the uk version g6 for 2 weeks my only main Gripe is the poor quality of the camera in low light, particularly the front facing camera. i've yet to take an indoor selfie that i havent immediately deleted. very fuzzy/grainy - the ffc on the G4 was markedly better.. ive taken some very good well lit pictures, but any unexpected movement or low light and they are just awful.

From what i've read the forthcoming htc11 is also high quality audio.
That seems like a cracking deal to me. Nice one.
I was just about to post this. This price is for the Platinum version. The white version is a bit cheaper @ £389.93, and the black version a bit more expensive @ £410.30. I would've gone for the black, but it broke the psychological £400 barrier for me. The difference between this and the UK model is amazing. And at around £100 cheaper, give or take.

I had actually signed up for the UK version on contract with O2 earlier today, but cancelled as soon as I saw this price.

Something to consider as well if you're a returning customer. They have a "rewards" scheme running, which should bag you and extra £35 off if you spend over £280. They say this is deducted automatically at checkout, but I never got it and I have raised a case with them. I've probably got a snowball's chance, but if you don't ask, and all that. Another 2% quidco as well.

I've used eGlobal a few times before and have always found them to be totally professional, keeping in touch throughout the ordering and shipping process, and checking to see if everything is in order once delivery is complete. And their prices, as you can see, are second to none. And I always pay with paypal for the added security.

Just bought LG V20 dual sim from T-Dimension for £347 also in Hong Kong, Phone was delivered from UK by DPD so no worries about import fees, paid by paypal, the only problem was that the account tracking did not progress and it read processing from the minute i paid until it was delivered.
I really want the G6 but heard battery life is kinda bad. I have a OP3t at the moment
What's the best way to pay, via PayPal?
i would stay away from this company, got an LG G4 from them some time ago, had been dealing with them for 4 months untill i got a partial refund ( the phone went into boot loop -LG factory defect). the phone was also within full warranty still. avoid !

Based on earlier discussion about who processes payments for EGC, looks like a direct payment via credit card will qualify for UK-enforceable S75 protection which far exceeds anything Paypal or a debit card can offer.

I would have just sent it to LG direct, I sent 2 back to them for the bootloop issue.
Now have the G6 and its stunning

Waited a week for my order, nothing, didn't even ship. Tried to cancel it in the end, nothing - had to go via Paypal transaction dispute.
Good luck getting LG to warranty this. Given their track record with boot loops (my G4 went back twice) I wouldn't personally risk it.
Had a shipped email overnight
