Ha ha I bought one. Sending my mi mix 3 5g back. Blooming dead in water phone with rubbish speaker. I was going to buy this other day at its £209 price but chose mix instead so lucky me.
Don't need one but very tempted. Good find OP. Heat 🔥
This worth upgrading my Samsung S8?
Grabbed this a while back when it was on sale for £199. I still use the phone as an everyday, bargain imo
No card slot?
Would this be a reasonable upgrade to the p20?
This or note 8 pro?
Retailer doesn't state the RAM, as far as I can see. Could be 4, 6 or 8GB according to GSM.

This has AMOLED display in its favour. Otherwise depends on RAM as doesn't seem much in it, although I don't know any specifics of the different MediaTek chips (also, note 8 pro has 64mp main camera vs 48, but doesn't necessarily mean anything).
I think @MrSwitch has owned both and he may pop up on here.

Note 8 pro for me. Having owned it, it is well punching above its price, these two are very similar, the pro having the better chip and bigger battery

Thanks, how do you know that - have I missed something on the page (although using my phone)?

+1 for the Note 8 pro, really pleased with mine.
I have the model CPH1877. Amazing phone for the price. Charges in half an hour and battery lasts the whole day long even with playing games. Photos come out decent and performance is great.

Only negative is mine only has one speaker, at the bottom and sound can get blocked when resting it.
I've said this on another thread, so I know I'm repeating myself but it's hopefully useful for some of you..... I still haven't received the OTA ColorOS7 update for this which was promised Q1 and I bought this phone Nov 19.

It's a lovely phone and a great deal.
I know Covid has impacted lots of things, but this update was already missed before any lockdown measures and now there are various rollouts for other Oppo handsets in various countries, but it seems the Reno Z has just been forgotten about with no clear indication of an update for UK handsets.

I can't even download an offline update and flash it myself, nor does the phone allow you to unlock it so it's not as if you can even go down the custom OS route - there's literally next to no community for it on XDA

It's left me somewhat disappointed. I knew some companies were iffy with updates, but if I'd known it'd be this bad I would have looked elsewhere.
I wish in hindsight I'd paid the little extra for the Xiaomi 9 Lite and I'd swap this for that in an instant.

Funnily enough, I've just received an email back from them saying 'June' - nothing more specific than that.
If it's to be believed, then we may hopefully, finally, see this in the next 5 weeks - I won't hold my breath though!

Thanks, for some reason their Web page looked different this morning and couldn't see where the specs were.

I'm finding typing using SwiftKey swiping quite inaccurate and unpredictable, though. Have you noticed anything like that?
This or Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S?

Its a replacement but it's well short of the S8
Just got mine now. I think someone mentioned before the company opens the packages to check as my security seals were broken but phone not touched etc. Comes with a nice black case which is chunky but good for my work place so serves me purpose. Happy so far

What about Redmi note 9s instead then will that be better than this to replace his Samsung S8?

The 9s would be closer over the long term and will offer a great deal more versatility in the camera department.
Would this be a good replacement for an Honor 9 or quite similar spec wise as bith have 4gb ram?

Hello, received mine yesterday, it has only 2 Sims no SD card slot.
I don't know about others but I would never order again from this company. There returns process is a sham. Been trying since Monday to return but I either don't get a reply or not the one I'm expecting. Live chat doesn't work and you have to have a return authorised first so thumbs down for me for them.
