Fair enough, but I wouldn't let that put you off, not visible to the naked eye in most instances.

Reverse charge is good, but I think the note 8t is a better device overall.
Heated, as it's still a cracking deal
@MrSwitch this one or Xiaomi 8T (the other deal you posted today)? Camera is the main preference.. gaming on mobile is almost nil.. it is for my wife..

Probably the Xiaomi, but this for immense battery life.

For an extra £30 (including vouchers/discounts) you can get the Redmi Note 8 pro, with 64mb camera

oh.. we thought it would look terrible on such a big 6.5" screen.. we will give another thought as massive 5000mah is a strong point to consider.. cheers and thanks again

got it .. its on Switchy's same 8T deal page cheers
Anyone seriously considering this should also give a lot of thought to Switchy's deal on the Realme 5 Pro from Amazon Spain. I bought one and it's amazing value for money! Turned up really quickly from Amazon Spain too. I bought the 8 gig version for about £35 more but I can't see it making a huge difference in terms of performance. Realme was originally an Oppo brand.

Defo a brilliant option for under £200. X
I bought this the last time it was on HUKD. First phone in a long time that I don't have to charge every day. I cannot see the difference betwen this 720p screen and the higher resolution screens I've had been. I do wear glasses though.
This has Dual Sim AND memory card slots (nothing shared).
Be aware, this is a big, heavy phone!

Biggest battery under 200 and 720p will draw less power but if you want a better camera, and bit faster processor, realme 5 pro is the way to go, but you will be sacrificing battery life!
Is this as good as the redmi note 8t? I haven't a clue about phones etc..... Advice would be appreciated

Okay so

Redmi Note 8T has
* Better screen - 1080vs the 720 on A5
* Better Camera front and back
*18W charging this isnt stated for A5

Oppo A5 has
* bigger battery capacity (25%)
* more battery efficiency due to lower 720P screen
* 0.2 inch bigger screen which will negate some of battery efficiency from previous point
*Reverse charging

Everything else is the same, including chip sets.
I don’t know too much about these fringe brand Android phones, but please can someone recommend one to me that has at least 256gb memory, dual sim, nfc, at least 6.5 in screen, runs nice and fast with no lag, excellent battery life

We had 1080 screens on the £120 smart ultra 6 from about 5 years ago, why are £150+ phones today still coming with crap screens?
I have this phone and I rate it.. just a few niggles, the timer dosn't show on the lock screen and there's no customisable lockscreen shortcuts.. It has insane output volume through the aux out, it's about twice as loud as my ipod classic, the classic still naturally sounds better, I have to turn off the smart dolby atmos, lower the volume and tweak EQ to get the the same clarity and dynamic separation as the ipod. The mic is not amazing but I can at least hear live music recordings.

Has a gyro for VR and photospheres

Battery is nuts.. I can go 2 full days without charging it with average use.

3GB of RAM? (Runs away)

I would say 1280x800 on an 8 inch tablet is the cut off point for resolution. 720 on a 6.5 is better than that. Although you can see the difference in resolution it doesn't actually make any differecr. ie I am typing this on a tablet as described above but also own a Samsung Note 4 (which is 2560x1440 on a 5.7 screen). Although I can clearly see the difference between those massively different resolutions it doesn't make any practical difference. The note 5 has a great screen but in reality it is mainly the OLED that is driving that.

Thanks for the feedback. My wife also owns note 4 and that is what I am replacing

I've got an Xiaomi 7 - not bowled over by the camera, I would be tempted to try an Oppo next.

Bettter battery life and easier for low end chips to run. And cheaper obviously.

Because market leader Apple doesn't compete on specs and they're selling tons. Market has realised that most their western customers are dumb and don't care about much innovation or specs, just marketing. I mean iPhone 11 is a £700 phone with a 720P LCD released in 2019...
