Found 18th Oct 2018
EDIT: price is now 119.99, you can apply the code: "CART" for £3 off bringing it back to original price: £116.99

This is not the newest or latest phone but at this price it's a bargain especially if you are after a great camera.

It is now also especially a bargain as Motorola has released its official update OTA to Android 8.1 that has been awaited for a year.

Heat just for mentioning the 8.1 upgrade! I can get my G5 upgraded now.
What are Toby deals like
This is my current phone, cracking price for a capable smartphone with a few nice to have features
I thought what a great deal, then I checked them up on Trustpilot and am not going to risk a purchase.

Yeah there is a risk with those: banggood, eglobal, Toby... But if you pay by PayPal or Credit card there is protection.

I ordered something with eglobal, was not getting shipped, got annoyed and sent an email, and another but did get my refund in full.

Checked prices for a normal retailer UK based and prices are still around £200 mark, so I believe with CC or PayPal, worth a punt.

Thought it was to good to be true. Even with PayPal ect I personally wouldn’t want the hassle if things go wrong so voting cold
Love this phone, now just a place that replaces its screen for an affordable amount of currency.

Awesome phone for the price. I paid twice as much and still thought it was a bargain.
Great phone but I put it next to my lg g6 (which is just going on looks) and it looks dated.

Wow that’s a bit of an eye opener- always thought it better to buy with PayPal where available!

A very good reminder, I was not saying you should use your credit card to use PayPal. It's and always is one or the other.

Agreed, read the reviews, main issues are: warranty and delays getting the product. A lot of them are Amazon or John Lewis customers with very high expectations for CS. I definitely would not recommend a purchase from them if you expect this sort of CS, however bargain hunters with CC protection OR PayPal... Always same issue if buying from banggood, Toby, AliExpress, eglobal...

I got my Xiaomi Redmi note 5 from them no issues no customer charges they confirmed they would cover this if any occured which they didn't as they ship to there warehouse in the UK and then that's shipped to you from there. Came in around 5 days nicely packaged I saw the trust pilot reviews but to me looks like it's only people who have bad experience leaving reviews and not the ones who had good.

I used PayPal for protection and didn't opt for the extra insurance because of this.
I've taken a punt, cheers OP. Hopefully I'll have a similar experience with Toby to that of Chris above.

What carrier are you guys with?

OH has an unbranded G5s Plus and is not showing any update to 8.x yet. Has a Three SIM in it, but that shouldn't make any difference. The phone is unbranded and unlocked. Bought brand new from Amazon.

Good phone for this money. She's still plenty happy with her one. Except for the lack of updates. (Went downhill when Lenovo took over the brand from Motorola. They used to be really quick ...)

I'm sure I can find the update and force it on manually. But OTA would be much easier ...
The price is currently £119.99. I dithered with placing the the order and it offered a voucher code to reduce the price by a further £3. Discount Code - CART

I'm on 3 network too however mine is an older G5 plus, not this S model, did you check in settings under check for updates?

Unsure if available yet for this model but it should be very soon indeed as they barely differ...

Oreo 8.1 finally rolled out on the Moto G5 yesterday in the UK after waiting ages. I would imagine the G5S updates to follow any day now!

Not quite as bad as eGlobal which attracts a lot of positive reviews on here and has dreadful reviews online (some people complaining theyd been scammed out of £400 plus). Toby seems to have attracted lots of negative reviews too.

Ive used Bangood Gearbest AliExpress and a few others without any problems at all. Forget about warranties or warranty repairs tho. Even if you live in that neck of the woods as I have getting anything done under warranty is virtually unheard of. I witnessed an angry exchange between a european customer and staff in a department store in Kuala Lumpur ....He was returning a faulty item and it had got to the point where he was shouting "its under warranty , dont you f......g understand....they didnt

If your having to rely on on some Paypal or Visa recompense then I would say dont bother, just think of the stress its going to cause you . Buy locally.
Looks like a reasonable stop gap phone.......giving up on my LG G6.....hope that Black Friday has something worthwhile this year
Let's hope we're not waiting long for delivery

I think you could be well surprised. Battery and camera and all around solid build with some added plus like moto gestures (hide the lower buttons and use fingerprint scanner as the buttons) make it a rather enjoyable phone. I like my G5 plus especially now that we have Oreo update...
I'd there much difference between this and the G6 play?

I'm with Virgin. But like you say it shouldn't matter. Have you gone into settings to check for updates? That is what I did. I didn't receive a notification.

Yeah the G6, like the G4, are/were quite unremarkable and did not justify their price tag... Those "play" versions are utterly meh, I'd go for a Xiaomi instead.
Thanks OP, I have ordered one up... Good price

Yeah had a redmi note 5 pro which was great but MASSIVE and the skin that Xiaomi put on it was so aggressive that it made my smartwatch unusable so traded it in
