Seems like a great deal for an 8+. I'd be on it myself but it's just too big for my liking. (That's what she said)

Very good price, dealt with laptops direct before and was a great service
Please note - Handset is SIM Free, however, it will lock to the network of the first SIM inserted.
Just noticed this too - £10 OFF ORDERS OVER £250 when you trial Which? for only £1
Maybe an iphone deal that will go hot really good price sooooooooooooo tempted
I doubt she said that.
Heat for the price and quiet admiration for the Sid James-worthy comment.

I like pears.
Good price! But might want check reviews regarding laptops direct!! Plus only 90 days warranty is crap
Ordered thanks missed this last time
Grabbed one myself after all, just hope it works out ok. You can extend the warranty for £50 which is still a decent deal. Presumably with it being refurbished the Applecare will be void, depends if it's been opened.

I think refurb really means ‘returned preowned’. Given the throwaway nature of phones these days if you open an Apple or Samsung phone that’s been sealed to IP67 and aren’t authorised, it’ll never be the same again so I have never seen a ‘refurb’ that looks ok to use.

However, Brightstar used to sell iPhones to trade that had passed through Apple’s trade-in program and Apple would wipe off any remaining warranty dropping all the liability onto Brightstar (who were without a doubt the worst company I have ever dealt with), just sharing my experiences, but don’t assume ‘refurb’ means opened up and fiddled with.

Yet if you add Samsung, LG , MOTO , and many others all together. It still would come near Apple’s IPhone world sales . Keep hating haters


You haven't checked the numbers have you. Apple have NEVER outsold Samsung in annual worldwide sales. It was close in 2012, but other than that Samsung's global market share in mobile sales has comfortably dwarfed Apple's. After the iPhone first launched, even Nokia outsold Apple for the following 3 years.

Also, not a single 'hater' had posted a critical comment before you posted yours. Sensitive much? iPhones are obviously expertly designed and built in many respects, but try holding a Galaxy S6/7/8 and tell me with a straight face you don't think it also represents fantastic design and quality.

Keep your Apple boner as long as you want. Just don't wave it at other people.

🍏 Boner?!
Thanks so much, it’s a great deal so I finally pushed the boat out and ordered. 😄
I wish there was a [hide fanboy] slider on HUKD. Anybody arguing about "Apple/Android is best" needs to get some fresh air.

Every deal that is electronics related on this site gets ruined by BS.

I have checked the numbers . Since 2014 Apples leading phone every year is the top selling phone . Also before that the 3GS was also top selling phone of its year . Use google , use wiki , use what ever you want . It’s the truth !
These devices should still have the original 1 year warranty from Apple

Didn’t Samsung build phones that set you’re house on fire ?

I'm sorry, but to quote you directly "if you add Samsung, LG , MOTO , and many others all together. It still would come near Apple’s IPhone world sales".

en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…nes

Follow the above link, go to 'annual sales by manufacturer' (i.e. exactly what you were describing) and have a look. Notice how Samsung is at the top of the list every year since 2012?
That was quick! Glad I dived in, I think. Certainly a leap from the SE...

Worst case I'd imagine breaking even on eBay.

As for the p**ing contest how about just enjoying the phones you enjoy and leaving people to enjoy theirs.

I'm not certain, but as the iPhone 8 was released after July'17 the statement about locking to the first SIM *might* be outdated.

OMG this is literally the funniest thing I have heard all day
Why does every deal end up with the same arguement as to which is better (Samsung or Apple). I'm a apple fan, but i recognise that Samsung make great phones and gadgets. It all comes down to preference, some prefer Apple and some prefer Samsung. If this deal isn't for you then there are other deals for you to look at, we are all here to find deals...?! If you want to debate which is better, better to go to a forumn site and open a thread there?
Managed to buy one, but I'm concerned about this bit:

Please note - Handset is SIM Free, however, it will lock to the network of the first SIM inserted.


Has anyone dealt with this situation before when buying from them? I know there was another iphone 8 plus deal a couple of months ago.
I got the impression that that info MIGHT be outdated and that they may have stopped locking them after July last year. This was info from one site though. Will see with mine tomorrow. Worst case £8.99 for EE to unlock it again, which is worth doing as locked tend to sell for £20+ cheaper when it comes to shifting it on.
