LG G4 is 3gb RAM and this is 2gb RAM but this has better battery, This is cheaper too. i wonder which will have better camera? any comments from current owners? thanks

2nd link, fast forward to 9mins for photo comparison.
Bought thanks...
Thanks OP put in a demand with Flubit
Great spot heat added
good deal for this phone.but it isnt a patch on the lg g flex 2 for 210 off expanseys.
i would go for the lg g3 around this price
I've had this phone for about a month now and for this price it's pretty good. (I had the Nexus 5 previously and I still miss it)
I paid about £130 upfront on a simple £10 a month contract (500mins, 5000 texts, 1gb data). I wanted something cheap as chips as I try to communicate with people as little as possible and it suits me fine!

I've been looking to get a new phone and having a decent camera is high on my priorities to save lugging a camera around on holiday. As far as I can see the G4 is widely considered to have the best camera of any mobile phone, although it does cost the best part of £100 more than this.

Good price OP.

As a rule I believe sony has best cameras followed by LG (of course depending on what your priorities are).

This phones camera is pretty good for everything except low light when it is ok.
Refurbished one is available for £163.79 from Amazon warehouse just bought one cheers op
If anyone bought this from Amazon at £249.99 a couple of weeks ago, get onto live chat and get a £50 refund

Now I am having a bad dilemma, I have bought one for my sister of ebay, new for 173£ but that was that 50£ off code and seller making a mess so basically luck.

Now wondering whether to pick one up for myself to replace moto x 2014 which was always a bit weak on the battery front.

This is 190£ for me with student discount and I believe I can get about 150£ for moto x 2014. (after paying for fees and delivery on ebay).

Benefits:
Much better battery life
SD card slot
better camera
Can use a tempered glass protector rather than plastic ones

Cons:
X 2014 has better (AMOLEDrather than lcd) screen
X 2014 is smaller and lighter and metal rims

Decisions, decisions
This vs the MI4C is a tough one, the MI4C is cheaper at £147 and faster, but then, it has it's hurdles.
I've ordered this but I also put in a demand on Flubit which has come back with an offer of £184.99. Now I don't know if I should cancel my amazon order and take it. Anyone know if flubit's customer service is any good? If the phone were to have any fault I'm sure Amazon would be helpful but don't know much about flubit.
edit. I've just read a review on trust pilot that said Flubit will cancel orders if amazon raise the price, and as this offer is only good for 1 day, it's not worth the risk. I'll keep my Amazon order and get it Tuesday with prime.

I've found Flubit to have good customer service, but I know there are a lot of people who have different views. After placing an order for an item once (I forget what) they called me pretty much within 5 minutes to warn me the shipping would take longer than expected and allowed me to cancel and get a refund straight away. In another instance I purchased a Philips shaver from them that died after a year, I contacted them and they just refunded me the full amount I'd paid over a year ago ~£50. This phone might end up coming from Amazon through the Flubit order anyway, just don't know. On a DoTD it's always risky if you really need the item.

You can't compare this phone to the LG G4. You can compare it to the model up the Moto X Style which has similar spec's (same chip set, memory, screen resolution, battery).
is that right 2048 GB expansion on the LG G4
I've had this phone since early launch.

Great battery. Android m incoming. Decent camera. SD card slot (more important in marshmallow).

Performance isn't great. It's been recognised many manufacturers haven't done a great job with the sd615. Some animations are stuttery.

Performance wise it copes, just not perfect, especially comparing to something like a g3/n5.

For 200 it's a newly released mid range phone.

you've nailed this really ... found the same myself .. its a half decent phone for the price, only disapointment is that the size of the battery you expect it to be even better than it is. still very good though


I'm beginning to regret my Oneplus 2 order. This is £100 cheaper and although slower, would probably be fine for me...

you'll be in for a shock where dimensions are concerned, this is HUGE compared to the original Moto X (For the record the original Moto X is my favorite phone ever, were it not for THAT battery life)

I've had 4 phones with the SD615 (Sony Xperia M4, Smart Ultra 6, Blade S6, Moto X Play) and have found it to be a thoroughly underwhelming SOC that only seems to do well in benchmarks.

To be fair to Moto, they have managed to do a far better job with it than Sony or ZTE. I found the X Play to only have the occasional judder and slow moment, whereas the Xperia M4 was a laggy nightmare in comparison (easily one of the worst experiences I have had with a phone). The performance with the ZTE's was better than the Sony, but I found that the SU6 launched apps far slower than the Moto G 3 (SD410) that I was using at the same time.

It's a good price for what the X Play offers, it's just a shame about the SD615. I'm not sure I'd be happy spending £200 on it.

If you like the original Moto X for it's best qualities (fast OS, excellent RGB AMOLED screen, small and light (easy to hold)). You might be disappointed with the Moto X Play. In use, it feels slower despite scoring well in benchmarks, and it's big, chunky, and heavy. However, it does have a great battery.

Isn't this just a ploy to get people to pull the trigger and pay over the odds for a phone thats going to drop even further on others Black Friday offerings, I mean its a very good deal, but a company like Amazon will have inside information about other companies incoming deals, and try and cash in before it loses sales, I know its not going to be a huge saving waiting , but Its got to be worth waiting 4 more days to maybe save £20 odd quid, or even yet get a flagship phone for less ( LG G Flex 2 anyone ? )

Nice price, wonder if John Lewis would match?

Bit risky with a DoTD.
If you're near a Morrisons today just a reminder you could save a bit more on this deal

For every £10 gift card you buy at Morrisons, they give you a Fuel Saver coupon worth 1p off every litre of fuel next time you fill up. They stock Amazon gift cards, so £200 of gift cards gets 20p off a litre of fuel (max 100 litres)
