You can get black too!
Black showing OOS for me? Think 10% student discount with uni days code?

Be careful with these, I had one and it had a cluster of dead pixels appear within a week. Right pain to get refund, having to quote the consumer credit act and section 75 claims. Motorola is not the same as it used to be. Your basically buying a lenovo phone with Motorola branding. The same as all these cheap supermarket TVs that are Vestel etc
Unidays code brings it down to £215.99 or £229.99 with UKWELCOME10

This or the HTC U Ultra? (Rhetorical question)
Fantastic phone, had it since release, no problems at all. Really fast, battery can last 2 days, great camera and expandable memory.
Edited by: "Socsan" 11th Jan
I’ve had mine for a few months and really impressed. I often get two days battery usage out of itand it’s a decent speed, the only minus I’d give it is the camera lag, about a second or two between pressing the button and actually taking a photo often means missing a quick snap.
Cant fault this phone. Picked one up for 180 in the black friday sales from amazon italy. Even at this price, still good value
Hmm is this worth the £100 more than the p10 lite deal?

Can't see how this would be £100 better. Does it only have 3GB RAM vs 4GB RAM of P10 Lite?

I have a Moto g4 plus great phone with no problems at all. I posted the motos up since I feel like these are as good as any Samsung phone it there but at a fraction of the price. Also when the battery starts to lose charge after a couple of years or so they are easy to buy and replace yourself. I haven't needed to change mine yet after two years.

Interesting question, when I was s juggling with brands I found the htc desire I had, was a great phone with a really poor battery life. Have HTC come a long way since then?

Which were what? I haven't edited anything. Just sometimes paste the title of the deal. What is the point of posting anything if it doesn't attract views? 🤔

Post what you like, just don't spam with unrelated terms especially the g word. Intentionally misleading is cause for reporting not just cold vote.

That may be so, but it doesn't escape the fact that my handset was a pile of crap. The aftersales from Motorola was disgusting, a customer shouldn't have to quote laws and legislation to receive a refund for a faulty product. Since lenovo have got their hands on the brand its gone downhill in my opinion. Can't stand samsung either, I've now jumped ship to oneplus and so far so good, cannot fault them in my experience so far.
Cold John Lewis was this price with headphones and 2 year warranty. I bought it, great phone

Mine has been flawless and not a single dead pixel, nothing to be careful of, every phone has the odd one which has a defect

I'm fully aware of everyone manufacturer has defective phones, trust me over the years I've had issues with Apple, Samsung and Sony to name a few. My whole point was that I almost had to threaten Motorola with a letter before action to get them to take my claim seriously, dead pixels in the middle of the screen seemed to be acceptable to them

Thanks for the heads up, if that is a good phone I may do the same in the future. I chose a Moto as Samsung and Apple became less and less appealing as their prices rocketed and other brands started to outpace them in terms of features, they just became more of the same as well. I didnt want to spend much more than around the £200 mark as well for all the things I need.

I think brand loyalty is rapidly dying nowadays as all the phones are made in the same place. I think people just look for the best value for money, with a big part of that being battery life.
Bought this phone for my daughter 2w ago for more than this, to replace her iphone,she loves it and no problems so far
Moto G6/G6S released probably end Feb.
Sorry but why is this so expensive? Absolutely not worth the price tag.

Interesting question, last time I had a Lenovo it felt like a plastic dummy kids toy. Has Lenovo (that's exactly what the E and G series are) come a long way since then?

Just wait and see if you need to use their customer service, horrendous at best.

Incredible front and rear cameras both with flash, insanely quick operation, massive screen, finger print sensor, gorilla glass, full metal body with no flex, dual SIM, expandable memory, bright, HD, crystal clear phone to name a few. I don't know why this deal is getting so much heat when JL had it same price with 2 year warranty and free high quality headphones though.
I challenge you to find a better phone for a better price which doesn't come from Gearworst or some other China website which gives it no useable warranty.

Did you do it online or in-store? Should've bought through JL who accept returns a lot more simple. Weird the phone developed dead pixels, that almost never happens unless it is dropped
I've always been a fan of the Moto range (currently using Moto G5 Plus). Similar priced phone for comparison would be Huawei Honor 7X store.hihonor.com/uk/…dex.
Anyone had an experience of the 7X yet? ALthough £30 more it comes with the Honor Band 3 free of charge which you could probably sell for £30.

Yeah heard good things about JL on here to be honest. Never thought to try there for mobiles. It was purchased off Motorola direct so all online, strongly worded emails etc. Not dropped the week and a half I had it. Possibly during transit but who knows
