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.
