Quite possibily one of the best magazine for reviews on cloaks and broomsticks, well worth the extra £1.

Awesome price, for a really nice phone.

Really impressed with it.
Wanted to buy one the other day but when i compared the camera to my LG G4 it appeared to be not as good, the Nokia 7 Plus is supposed to be better.

Using the Google camera improves it quite a bit.
Just bought one. I found it myself and looked to post it here, but kudos to OP Mrswitch for already finding it. This deserves to go scorchio hot. I doubt you'd find a better specced new UK warranted smartphone within £100, I couldn't.

I popped into a carphone warehouse to check it out before ordering and they are unbelievably selling this for £499. This phone is about to be superseded by the mid year update to the Nokia 8 Sirocco, so they seem to be offloading stock, and it can be found at many shops for circa £299.

My thoughts after a quick play are; it's not the most glam phone available today (P20 Pro Twilight?), but it's still a great looking phone. It's swift, great display, build quality seems amazing, coming from a stock Android phone, I was pleased that everthing was where it should be.

The professional reviews are generally positive apart from the camera performance which seems below some other flagship devices, but way above the midrange competition at this price point. Some of the later reviews are not so down on the camera so I suspect there could have been a software update. This reviewer reported video playback of "a stonking 18hrs 46mins on a single charge". I hope it's true, (I bet he had the brightness turned down though).

I can't wait to get it to replace my beloved Moto Z that unsurprisingly didn't survive a 5 meter drop.

FYI it will also shoot RAW, if you have a RAW camera app.
Oh a heads up... I doubt the small Quidco cashback will be paid, as I think the Which subscription £10 discount will invalidate the cashback, but I live in hope.
make sure you put the audio cable first and then into headphones in order to receive even better sound than Zte Axon 7.
Good deal but wish it had a larger battery...

Very pleased with the battery in it, can go 2 days without charging
The battery is actually very good, better than I expected. The camera in operation is not as good as the G4 (my last phone) but with the pixel 2 rom it is much better. The hardware seems ok and it is good in good light. The autofocus a a touch slow. It is entirely useable though.
For the price it is an absolute steal.
Bought this phone three weeks ago. It's brilliant. Much prefer it to my wife's Pixel 2.
I am using the Pixel camera app on my Nokia and the photos look just as good as the ones taken on my wife's Pixel.
Buy it while its still in stock. A definite bargain.
So I got the £10 voucher from Which? but when I check out, it doesnt give me an option to put the promotional code. It asks for my bank details and thenjust a button complete the order. I dont want to press that button yet without entering the promotional code.
Great phone, I have had one since around January time. Very good screen, good audio through blutetooth or headphones, quick and responsive, battery lasts ages and extremely quick to charge, and all the Google updates just about every month. I believe the camera isn't as good as some phones, but then I couldn't care less, I think I have taken 2 photos on it since I got it, neither of which were very important, so not something I can comment on really. Mobile gaming is great on it, the screen feels (weirdly) bigger than it is, and call quality is the best I have had in a long time. Get a good case from day 1 though, it's possibly the slipperiest item that has ever existed.

Not for this item, but I bought a monitor from them a few months ago, and cashback was still paid through TCB even with the Which discount.
Great phone. i have one.
ignore early reviews. the software updates have completely stabilized this phone.
runs great

I upgraded from a G3 to a Nokia 8. It does miss out on some features, no tv remote feature and the camera isn't on the same level but in terms of raw performance it's so much better. Battery lasts me multiple days (G3 was nearly a day usually), it's fast & it's a well built phone (thrown it into things [over 1m distance] without thinking, very minor scuffing on the sides).
I can't cxomment on the 7 plus.

You've probably already found this... On the Basket page, just before the checkout button there is a button with the Which logo, click it and enter your discount code and your which membership number.

The Mix2 is a beautiful looking device with great specs too. For me personally, I like stock Android and want frequent security updates. I'm also uncomfortable with imports and lack of a UK warranty. Your priorities may be different.

My advice is buy the one you want, or you'll regret your decision.

Make sense?

Yes, but I'd rather buy it from John Lewis and have the ability to take it back to store if I didn't like it or free postage back to them. Laptops direct, you have to pay to send it back to them which almost negates the £10 your saving. Plus if it goes wrong I can take it back to any John Lewis store. There are advantages.

Fair enough, makes sense to me.
