Great phone plagued by poor software issues, shame. Heat for price though, although for similar or a bit more money I think you get a much more complete phone elsewhere

Maybe maybe... But this is the cheapest I have seen this very recently, especially for a grade A, and an extra 30 for basically new.

I bought a Samsung refurb from eBay seller stated manufacture warrenty included when it went wrong I called Samsung to be told manufacture warrenty is only on new handsets or refurbs sold by Samsung dealers . on refurbs sold out of the Samsung loop it's down to the seller. So be worth double checking either way.
I really appreciate deals like this one. Excellent find. Even though i found one but will hold back because i might buy one but dont want it to be out of stock. Great job though.

For a refurb...
Best phone I've owned. Couldn't get by without 128 gb internal storage now
This is a good price for the phone. I've just taken one, but with Vodafone (directly), £35.70 per month, £30 upfront, 32GB data and the Entertainment package (I chose Spotify).

If my maths is right, then it's just over £20 per month for the SIM deal compared to the phone price above. They'll give you 30% off the prices on the Vodafone website as the Mate 10 Pro is now a superseded model.

You can turn enough of the EMUI UI off to make it near to stock Android, and the battery (4000MAh) really does last more than a day. I've had mine since Monday, and all is good so far. It even comes with a basic see-through plastic case.

Can you suggest a better phone?

Can you suggest a better phone?


I would go for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, Snapdragon 845, iPhone X level camera, 6GB RAM, running the latest android, currently the cheapest for that is £412 which I would happily pay.

Or I would stump up the extra 1-200 and go for an S9/S9 Plus from eglobalcentral

Not saying this isn't a good deal but it apparently has quite a bad UI in terms of software

P.S I would almost never go for a used Android only an iPhone, as iOS seems to just last so much longer and Androids have much shorter lifespans

So your suggestion is to import the mi mix 2s,or import the Samsung s9, instead of buying something this cheap from the UK?
I'm not adverse to importing phones, but not at the price of the two you just mentioned, although I guess eglobal ship from the EU?
Nice find (as always)!

But I thought I recognised the eBay username and this company is Wizard Europe who are pretty bad in terms of support and service - just take it as you will, and with eBay buyer support you’re probably fine but don’t expect help beyond eBay if you run into trouble.

I would personally rather do that then pay for a worse phone, just for the convenience of a UK delivery.

This phone is a refurb so manufacturers warranty is surely to be questioned, and this company have a terrible CS record.

I have not bought a UK based phone for 4 years and love it, I save so much money and have better phones, its nuts.

In regards to eglobal, their registered company address is Hong Kong, but they do 1 week no customs delivery so they must have an EU warehouse somewhere (and I can testify to delivery, 3 phones and some little techy bits, never any issues)

As long as you use a credit card/Paypal, choose free delivery, and pick the right grey sites, your risk is as low as buying off a random ebayer imho.

Fair enough, but as for the mi mix 2s is over £400, I personally wouldn't want to send that amount of money to a random seller in China.
And what about warranty for some xiaomi you've bought off aliexpress, practically none existent.

It's £12 over £400, which is the cost of 2 pints or a pizza, so I wouldn't sweat it. Besides you're comparing new to used.

That's your choice, and I completely respect that, but I for one don't really care about warranties as I have never had a device fail on me, as I only buy reputable devices.

We're not talking about Doogee or Elephone or whatever here, it's the 4th largest smartphone company in the world xD

All I was saying is, this deal is paying £400 for a used phone from the UK, when for 12 quid more you get a no doubt better phone which is new.

And I would usually use eglobal, for the use of PayPal, their 1 year warranty, and their no customs guarantee.

Each to their own. I'll enjoy my better phone with less protection, you can have UK piece of mind but a worse phone.

Not only that but when I buy a phone I kind of want it within days/next day - not have to wait weeks, maybe pay customs clearance (which is a valid concern) and possibly suffer buyer’s remorse in the interim.

I am surprised anyone can say the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a ‘bad phone’ but I do agree Xiaomi are a very good manufacturer. Shame they don’t have distribution over the UK/EU way as I would choose them over Huawei if all things were equal. Warranty and warranty terms are important to me even if I never use them.

Exactly. There are tons of ‘refurb/used haters’. Personally I’d rather have someone ‘drive it off the forecourt’ for me first so I can have it at a bargain price later; Pixel 2 for £250, Sony XZ1 Compact for £220,yes please.

Wish I had done that with my iPhone X. In fact, I wish I’d never bought it - buggy mess that it is... have reverted to a 7 Plus which I prefer while it’s being fixed.
Great price. I’ve not heard of any software problems on this model like someone posted above. The thing that puts me off is the lack of the genuine charger and small warranty period. Huawei’s super charger is certainly worth having which is probably why I wouldn’t pull the trigger. It’s still an amazing phone and with that sized battery, it’s debatable if you even need quick charge because barring some ridiculous usage of constant gaming for endless hours, you won’t find yourself running low on battery.

Watch the review by Flossy Carter on YouTube. He loves this phone and he’s the kind of guy to ramp up brightness and show off.

Also agreed, nothing wrong with a good refurb if you are going to buy in the UK, saves you alot, I just prefer bang for my buck instead of UK based phones.

Ironically, I have had more problems with fake, dodgy and slow sellers on ebay than grey import sites (unless you buy from certified outlets like AO, Argos, musicmagpie etc...) and past the 30 day returns you get very little to no support on used items.

I would also point out that both The Solution Shop and eglobal offer delivery within a week with guaranteed no customs and accept Paypal. They also offer warranties, which I have tested through Paypal 'Return on us' and it worked fine.

I honestly don't care because I know where to buy Xiaomi's to make sure I get the real phone without bloatware or stuff to break it, and even if it did break, their price point means I could buy another one straight up and still be spending as much as a UK phone.

I bought from eGlobal via eBay and was pleasantly surprised but it's not something I would want to do regularly, nor for something largely important like a mobile phone. I guess that's just personal preference. But there are always two sides and some people won't ever do it and some will - same with companies like Music Magpie, got people here claiming they've had mint/boxed grade C/good handsets and then people like me who look like they've had the handsets tied to the back of a car and dragged for a few miles necessitating a return.
