Talk about depreciation. Paid over 400 for this at the beginning of the year. Great phone, pitiful battery life.

Depends how you use the phone. I had it and it was equally good to my ZTE AXON 7 and better than my galaxy s8 and LG g6.

I'm not quite sure why a phone is placed in av, phones and computers...
Is this website reliable please? Anybody used them before?

Was wondering how they compare to eGlobal which I believe rep is not that great.

This have band 20 for uk carriers?

Also are they shipping from abroad any risk of custom charge?

Thanks

Hot price for deal btw.

True, that's why I always buy gear when I really need it. I still got my doogee I bought almost two years ago, still going strong despite the abuse went through. But its time for an upgrade to a decent camera to use with my gimbal.

Although I don't thing the price will drop considerably more, the v10 still sells at £160-170.

I order also this, cheaper than anywhere else, so never have to put my phone on the charger, or charge half-empty battery.

Seemed to go ok in this past deal: Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 128GB 4GB RAM With Surface Pen [without Keyboard] - £575.99 @ Toby Deals - read daskapital's post there, which will answer some of your other questions about them & import tax, etc.

It's the 64Gb, dual-SIM, quad-DAC version, so yes, it'll have B20 as well.

Edit: another thing I'd strongly recommend is paying by credit card (or, if no CC at least by PayPal).

i wonder if game still give £340 instore credit for a LG V20 Trade in, they did a month ago when i traded in mine
£9,999.00 for the case is slightly disappointing though

Phone is still really good (2016 flagship), how much did you get it for?

I just bought my xperia x for £187, but got it discounted to £150 because it didn't come as expected, if I could get the axon 7 for £200 I woulda jumped at it, but cheapest one on amazon was £350...

Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to see. I was thinking about getting this since yesterday's deal and this nailed it, got the battery case as well. I have a decent camera but it's so convenient if your camera is in your pocket, going to use this as my secondary phone.

For anyone interested why I asked this question, see the below studio condition low light set up:
gsmarena.com/pic…852
Of course it's going to look better than real life because it's in a studio! But look at the £10 note's quality, the v30 is the new phone and it looks tragic compared to the v20!
Just bought this a few days back from eGlobal, arrives Monday, wanted an upgrade for my note 4 I can get an extended battery for.

It seems to be the way that the refreshed website spams itself with a legion of pointless keywords thus leading to one deal showing up in 3 or possibly more categories leading to massive clutter.
It used to be useful browsing by category now that's been seriously compromised.
And that really annoying way the main menu slides down as if designed by one of the morons at Apple.
I blame Brexit.
OP this deal is playing with my head lol, one of the best smartphones of last year (even this year) for £250 is making me hard to resist even though I've had my Xperia X for just a week.

is equally good if not little subdued picture quality and that's only by looking directly at the images through the phone's screen compare to galaxy s8 i had for over a month and a half.

LG V20 I had it in titan grey, rose pink and at last silver all of them within 3 months of use. I bought them for over £280 and below £287 depended on the colour. Xperia X was been on my list for couple of months aswell good deal. I got my ZTE Axon 7 like new from CEX in early december for £265.00

For me it was an easier decision as I needed a decent phone with removable battery and good camera on a budget, not many option available(the next one,v30,has non-remov. battery, so this its probably the last). As a bonus has very good sound recording quality, also useful for me, as I said want to use it on a gimbal and try to edit short travel clips. Its the price that makes it a good deal, otherwise there are a lot other better phones out there, including Sony's. If I wasn't after these features, I probably would have gone for a mid-range chinese firm phone.

Anyone any experience of getting hit with import duty with Toby deals?
I finally decided to give this a go and ordered one this morning after sleeping over it. Annoyed I could only pay via PayPal as I wanted to be covered by section 75 in case it broke or something. Looking forward to an upgrade of my aged and worn out Moto x Play
Thinking of replacing my LG G2 with this. Will I notice much of a difference between the two?
I've had one of these for a while - here are a few observations;

bright clear screen, but blacks look a bit washed out
Speaker quality only average
battery life pretty bad - under 4 hours of SOT for me
Second screen not that useful, and difficult to reach
WiFi signal good, mobile signal only average
No waterproofing
Quad DAC (to my ears) overrated. Slight improvement in sound and volume, but not mindblowing
Build quality good
Removable battery good (and necessary)
Camera excellent, especially in manual mode
Wide angle rear camera is useful but no good if you pixel peep, and poor in low light
Selfie camera only average
Video recording excellent (especially sound), but OIS not great

On the battery front, I did a side by side with my Lenovo P2 (yes I know it will win) streaming the same 1080p movie on Youtube.

1h 55m movie - maximum brightness (manual)

P2 started at 41% finished at 33%
V20 started at 47% finished at 8%

I'd still recommend it as a good all rounder at a great price, but warranty concerns (given LG's poor track history) and poor battery life should be noted.

A highlight battery-wise is minimal standby drain - I unplugged at 100%, 10 hours later still 100%
I read somewhere that to get the best from the DAC you need to use high impedance headphones.

I read somewhere that to get the best from the DAC you need to use high …I read somewhere that to get the best from the DAC you need to use high impedance headphones.

That's true. My understanding is there's 3 modes. 'basic' mode for headphones under 50 Ohms, Aux mode which boosts the output and quad Dac mode for 50 ohm and above.

When I got mine, I simply tried the B&O earphones and being under 50 Ohms the quad Dac didn't kick in, and volume wasn't loud enough.

There's a hack to force aux mode, this made it louder, but for comparison my old iPhone 3G sounded better.

I then bought an impedance adapter to trick the quad Dac into action. Again, an improvement but nothing breathtaking.

I've now tried it with 2 different high impedance sets (admittedly they're not massively expensive ones) and used 24 bit flacs as the source.

Don't get me wrong, it sounds good, but to my ears it wasn't night and day better - just louder.

Of course it's only my opinion and every reviewer raves about it.

I maybe should have managed my expectations.
Thanks for the info ... as I'm thinking of replacing my ZUK Z2 with this.
