So if I buy this for someone who will use it on a different network, the price will be: £149 + £10 (goody bag) - £45 (cash back) = £114?
Are GiffGaff phones unlocked?
Edit: They come unlocked. Just clicked through "Get Deal" and saw it.

yes
I just keep getting
"Oops... Sorry, this can’t be processed right now, please try again later. If you see this message again, please contact an agent and we'll look into this for you."

Ended up having to use Chrome if anyone else gets the same problem.

This or a Huawei p10 lite?

Heat btw, great deal

The J5 has a better camera and screen than the P10 Lite. Some people haven't even heard of Huawei. I think this phone wins

Forgot to mention that even though both state 5.2" display you get more screen display on the J5 because the P10 Lite has the bottom space used up with the 3 buttons.

P10 lite all day …P10 lite all day longhttps://gadgets.ndtv.com/samsung-galaxy-j5-2017-4207-vs-huawei-p10-lite-4068ong



How does this link suggest that the P10 is better?
Presume you can just activate the SIM for the cashback and then bin it?

would it have to be activated in this phone or wouldn't they know what phone it was activated in?
you're right mate, my mistake, trying to multi-task...apparently us blokes don't to it well, if at all

Thanks
How does this compare against the huawei P8 lite deal from carphone warehouse? I have ordered that, but wonder if this is a better deal?
This will be the first ever decent budget Samsung phone....or more likely it won't.
I'm stuck with an A3 2017 by work and it's absolute pants, this cheaper model is unlikely to be better, especially given Samsung's track record on budget (and not-so budget) phones.
Correct me if I'm wrong...

Is not the Huawei P8 Lite Phone better and cheaper than this one?
I had been looking at one of these a few weeks ago, and the cheapest I could find was £189 from carphonewarehouse.
Heat added!
Isn’t the cheapest for this £159? As it requires a £10 goody bag? Or have I done something wrong?
Not impressed at all with Giff Gaff - have tried to purchase this phone x 10 times and keep getting oooppps!!!

Activated SIM a couple of days ago, but no change on TCB yet.

Have you looked at a 720p phone? I bought this and a Moto E4 plus (both 720p), not a great deal different to 1080p. This is nicer because it's AMOLED and the Moto is IPS. Battery lasts longer with less pixels to push around.

Bought one n yeah u r rite 720p aint that different than 1080p.cheers.
Hi, i have ordered the phone via TCB and it's just tracked at £5. The sim activation offer is now £30. This ends in 2 days. I won't receive the phone now until Tuesday. Does anyone know if you have to actually have activated the sim before the offer expires in order to receive the £30 cashback please?

Seems the phone comes complete with GiffGaff SIM which you then load with a goodybag? Does this then activate the topcashback credit (or can anyone tell me how you'd do this?)?
The cashback is now showing as £30. Wonder if this cashback will work if you already have a GiffGaff account (on a SIM change, using SIM supplied with the new phone)?
My £5 TCB for the handset is showing but the £40 for SIM activation isn't - anyone else have this?

When I bought the phone, I added a £10 goodybag (sim card), and to get the £45 back you have to activate the SIM (you can do this online in your giffgaff account). This is what I did, but topcashback is still showing £0 after 10 days since the purchase, so I lodged a missing cashback claim. Fingers crossed.

Battery seems fine, but my dad is only using it for calls, whatsapp and YouTube. He can't see the difference between the 720p screen and that of an iPhone 6Plus, but I do and I don't like it to be honest. The design is very nice, has a front facing led flash which is interesting, back camera is decent. He's happy, so I'm happy.
