Makes you wonder just how much mark up Samsung has on its phones when it can very regularly have offers like this. Great deal. And £60 trade in on any old working Android phone.
And I forgot to mention 5% TCB on top!
Just bought 3 devices and forgot to use TCB:(
Good spot mate
can you trade in an iphone 5?

Yes you can. Still 100 off!
I keep seeing good eals on the Samsung A range (A50, A70 etc). Is it inferior to the Galaxy range? is it worth the price difference to go for S10 instead?

Samsung keep getting away with it because there are too many mugs still happy to pay their silly prices..... £1k+ for the latest S range flagship....Xiaomi or RealMe will sell you a near identical spec handset for half the price but some people are too blinkered to see past the badge on a phone.

Xiaomi do offer so much more for the money though, The new Xiaomi Mi 10 launched last week (its a direct Galaxy S20 competitor at half the price) and sold out in less than a minute...

People are slowly waking up though hence Samsung's lower price A range. Still poor value compared to what you can buy from other brands for the price.

As far as I know Samsung directly not dealing with recycling devices so might be not but I'd recommend to give them a ring.

They probably offset some of those problems by selling these trade-ins to developing countries at double the rates. Or re-using the rare earth materials that are becoming harder to source
Good deal.
4GB RAM is deal breaker for me.

Me personally thinking Exynos better than MediaTek. And in my opinion Samsung camera's SW are better than Xiaomi's/Redmi's despite it's usually the same module...

Redmi is bulky I.e. 9mm thickness actually its th only issue with REDMI in my opinion - its personal preference though

I ordered a couple of A50's in December, Samsung never sent me the envelops for the trade in for the Alcatel phones whichI got from O2 for £5. What should I do, as they paid out the cash back?

Trading in doesn’t give you discount, they’re buying it off tou
Just bought an iPhone 4S for £25 off eBay, so will cost me about £200 total. Still a great price for this.
Anyone know how long the trade in is on till? Because I won't receive my iPhone 4S till next week.

I saw that for the £50 cashback but not for the trade in. I'll take your word for it anyway.
Seems to be quite a few issues on the A51, I just googled it and was surprised by the negative comments regarding the phone.

Get the seller to send you the imei for the iPhone though Ebay message. All you need is imei. Once you get that place the order and send the trade in phone when you get it

Probably a bad idea if the seller doesn't end up sending it in the end or if it gets lost in the post.

Done it about 5 times in last 2 years. Also if the it gets lost you can email Samsung recycle team and they will change the phone and imei. I have even done that. Tried and tested

Xiaomi offer very good price/performance, however they still aren't near Samsung's level of software optimisation, my money is on the S20 Ultra slaughtering the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro camera performance and UI performance. On a general level yes Samsung charge too much.

I'd expect it to beat the Mi 10 without a doubt, but "Slaughter" I think is a little unfair.

At double the price it should be better.

Samsung worked jointly with Xiaomi to develop the HMX 108mp sensor in the Xiaomi phones. However Samsung are using a newer HM1 108mp sensor in the S20 Ultra 5G with 9:1 pixel binning giving much better low level light performance.

It's a shame Samsung are only going ultra high end with their 108mp camera. The Xiaomi 108mp isn't bad at all, but without software optimisation it's not much better than the Huawei P30 Pro 40mp sensor in real world usage.

With the right optimisations it could be excellent. Hopefully Xioami will push optimisations to their 10 series phones in due course.

We'll have to see what Google do, Sony don't have a comparable phone sensor.
