Can anyone tell me how reliable it is to order off these sites? The deal/tariff isn't on the o2 website itself, I am wondering how it actually works? I can see this being a really good deal and I am very tempted myself, but if I have issues do I go through o2 or back to mobiles.co.uk for example?

Got my iPhone 7 from mobiles.co.uk last December and they were very quick with everything. Got the phone delivered to me next day and no problems whatsoever. Will definitely use again once this contract is over. Depends on the nature of the issue, but for most issues, you'll have to go through the network provider.
Thanks for the replies guys! Might just go with this, very tempting given the pre order bonus + the fact it's not much more than if I brought the phone outright, it'd be like buying it on credit interest free lol. The data/mins are just a side perk but it's better than my current contract (500mb haha)

So the phone itself is £869, so you're technically getting a free sim only contract for 24 months. Is that right?

I'm pretty sure you get the dex with this too and with any galaxy note 8 that is pre ordered before the 14th September as you just register the phone with samsung once received with proof of purchase and claim. It states this on the bottom of the phone page on mobiles.co.uk
Wish I'd waited a while. Impulsively pre ordered as a retentions deal - never done this before - have to wait for the phone to come before I can cancel now. Hope these deals are still available then!

Don't want to pre order two!!

I can't seem to see this deal in the link ?

Select O2 and sort by Total Cost of Contract Low to High. I don't seem to have the sort option on my iPad but you can select O2 then monthly cost up to £30 and upfront cost £200 plus. Should show both of the cheap deals.
Note 8.. I played instore with camera..fab!!! Maximum zoom..FAB!! Feeling when you hold it..FAB!! But for God sake...almost 900£? .....Terrible!..How much cost factory to do this? Max 200-250?

Thanks anyway ; )

I just don't get it, mobile games are crap so you don't need it to be powerful, I'm never going to watch a TV series or a Movie on my phone when I have a lovely TV... so why do I need a big screen with such a high resolution. There is only so much you can do on a phone that's better than having another device.... it's a camera and tbh nothing tops the Nokia 808 still because they're all focused on having a big screen so they have to be thin. Then what.. you may listen to some music, browse the net for 5 mins and go on Youtube during your lunch.

I don't get how it's worth almost a grand, it doesn't do anything more than a phone from 2/3 years ago.
I thought Samsung discontinued Note series phones after battery fire incidents ...?
Does anybody know if these come unlocked?
3gb 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Well you thought WRONG !
Seems like a great deal to me, phone itself is £800+. Hot!
Thoughts on this v Essential phone v LG V20?
The sim minutes/ text and data alone is worth about £8-10 a month so if you subtract £240 from the price of the contract and the cashback the phone actually costs about £606.

That's an incredible price for this device

i would go with the v30 for the sd processor, essential phone
Aaaargh, I ordered the Galaxy S8+ (+VR) for £199 upfront and £29/month on 4GB / month on Vodafone, earlier today (from mobiles.co.uk)... will be delivered tomorrow.

I have however now also ordered this deal. This is too good to miss!

Did anyone return anything to Mobiles.co.uk? I am planning on sending back the S8 plus, unopened.

You are right. It's like buying a fine set of crystal glasses and using them to drink White Ace.

They recalled the Note 7, learned from their mistake (we hope!) and one year later here we are with the Note 8.

You clearly know nothing about cameras; 'Nokia 808' - Ha Ha! If you don't want one then why comment - to me it just sounds like you can't afford one and are just angry because you really want it but can't.
Guys would it be possible to get student discount on the ee deal?
looks like its time to buy new phone

Have had 3 contracts by these guys, all brilliant, had some issues with stock on one (7+) but that was from supplier nothing they could do and 4 days later it arrived I normally find mobiles via uSwitch there are loads though I've used s few other third-party sites then EE/02 directly. They did the usual keep same number every time too ect.

I was told by mobiles.co.uk locks to first sim provider installed.

If this maybe the case does anybody know which provider is likely to unlock without any hassle?

​I'm currently on a 4gb tariff and have WiFi most places I go, so rarely use that much data. If I was travelling via trains etc to work it definitely wouldn't be enough, so it depends on how much you use. If I hadn't already pre-ordered I would have jumped at this deal!!

I'm going to stop looking at note 8 deals now! Regretting not shopping around and jumping at the first call from network.

From what I've gathered Exynos is a superior chip to Snapdragon.
