Cashback showing as £130
Damn that's annoying took this out with mpd for £75 cashback which I'm still waiting for
Had this phone for several months now and it's almost faultless ( camera isn't the best is the only downside)
Everything else is 9/10.

I think you have to claim the cash back in 3, 6, 9,... Months. It is not automatic..
Why does the legal bit go on about EE on a 3 deal?

No it's not it was auto cashback but takes 90 days to be credited to account apparently
So to clarify with the cash back, it'll go automatically within 99 days, so after 3 months, you've paid £75 then get £130? Making this under £20/m and a total cost of £470? Seems like a scorcher to me?
Seems like a scorcher to me!

Probably worth mentioning that it's an essential plan and not advanced so no Go Binge/Tethering etc. Full details here
24 month contract! Never going back to contact if I can help it. SIM only for me going forward.

I feel the same, however when you consider the phone is £400 and there's £130 cashback, the tariff side of things works out at less than £3 a month. If you were after the phone anyways SIM free you're probably better off with a deal like this.
Cracking deal, if you don't need tethering, which I do :-(
Nice to see Nokia escaping the evil clutching screwing-up claws of Microsoft
Heat added, great deal when considering cashback.

sim only is a contract too though
People still buy Nokia's? LOL
£42 TCB too!! Hot
Bargain price but I’m put off by the audio quality reviews on the web. Doesn’t seem to be a phone for music listeners. Heat still for the deal

Audio quality with headphones is very good, comparable with my DAC, if you are talking about the speakers, they are fine for Netflix and don't understand why you would use a smartphone to play music out loud, even the best are far worse than a half decent set of speakers.

I'd assume they're on about a monthly rolling. Technically a contract yes, but being able to cancel anytime is nice regardless. I much prefer monthly rolling w/ sim free phone myself.

This came from the Nokia community. It’s put me off. It’s still a good price ghough

no idea why this is cold. this went scorchio hotukdeals.com/dea…281
ok it's for the 4gb option but the 8gb option for 25/month was also available. with £75 auto cashback reducing it to £525 for 24 months
this is £500 plus possible £40 tcb so even lower at £460. that's only £19.17/month. Taking into account the lowest price for this phone was i think around £360 your talking £100 for a 24 month contract on those allowance, hard to beat

Hadn't noticed this myself. You can use USB C DACs with Android phones if you're connecting to your hi fi for FLAC playback. The LG B&O dongle is cheap as anything at Cex. I've used this for Spotify and suchlike and hadn't noticed any pop or hiss, but then if you're fussy about music playback you're better off getting something like an LG V30.

Audio quality is fine. Unless you're planning to hook it up to an amp you should be ok.

Just goes to prove people have different expectations. Your opinion will be shaped by what phone you're moving from.

There are tons of tiny little bugs in the software compared to near-stock Android in say Motorola phones. Auto-brightness is all-over the place. Notifications disappear on their own. Youtube videos don't scale correctly in fullscreen unless you tap the screen. You don't get vibration feedback or audible pings when changing ringer volume... I can keep going.
And yes, the camera has good some good hardware, but the software is a big let-down.
Not a bad phone. But nowhere near worth £400.
Can you cap these contracts if you are giving it to a teenager ?
So hang on, this is cheaper even than buying it second hand? £470

I assume I could buy this and then just use the phone and use it with another sim? ie completely not use the 3 contract?

Don't blame Nokia.Before Microsoft's screwing up of their own promising phone system, Nokia were one of the leading players. Even using Microsoft's phone system they made good phones. It was only when Microsoft demanded their own way the wheels came off. Nokia CAN make great phones again of that I have no doubt

That's the thing, the "problems" you list are, as you say tiny....so tiny I didn't even notice.

I'm not sure what people want for the money. If you want AMAZING and are hate tiny little issues then buy a premium phone with a premium price tag.

For the money this phone really is very good....if you want perfection then be prepared to spend a lot more money than this will cost you.

Plus £40 quidco so this would be £430 for a new note 8?
Shame there's no tethering, otherwise i'd have gone for this. My girlfriend has it and its a great phone.

It's mot exactly a £100 phone though is it? Say the phone price in the contract is around £250-£300. So not cheap. And going by the sim-only price you can certainly expect a lot better.
It's got good hardware, so performance is reasonable. But other than a high end chipset it doesn't do anything any better than say Mot G5 plus.
And while my complaints may seem minor to you. They will give potential buyers indication what sort of immature product they are getting.

Weirdly I came from a Nexus 5X with totally stock android.. And the Nokia is almost exactly the same software wise. No problems with brightness, notifications or YouTube scaling.. And I didn't get any of those vibrations or beeps when changing ringer volume on stock android on the 5X.

The camera I do agree with, its low light performance is lacking compared to the N5X, but on the upside its not made by LG and isnt currently in a bootloop spiral of death.

One software issue that is annoying is that the default photo gallery (Google Photos) cant delete images from the SD card.. and suggests I launch gallery, which launches itself.. Nokia need to fix that little issue.
