Samsung Galaxy S8 dual sim unlocked £467.53 @ eglobalcentral

Found 5th Aug 2017Edited by:"majoosta"
Looking to replace my Sony Xperia Z5 due to the ongoing battery issues. Seems like a great deal to me. I've bought a Nexus 5 previously and couldn't fault the company as arrived fairly quick and phone was great even if it did come with Chinese instructions and needed an adapter for the charger plug. I got what I paid for and didn't get stung with any import duties.

Very tempted as don't want to be locked in on another Vodafone contract at an extortionate rate and would rather upgrade to sim only and buy a handset outright.

Quidco cashback possible too!

presumably hot for price and cold for 'retailer'
Eglobal.. this is going to get real cold real quick
Cold - Eglobalcentral are an absolutely awful company to deal with. Google their complaints etc
Has an S8 deal ever got any heat or is everyone on here an Apple zombie?
Didnt realise s8 was dual sim but some are

Must be surely. I understand that some people have had problems with dealing with them if their phone has developed a fault and luckily I'm not one of them. Got a UK Sony Z5 with problems and my wife's Z5 compact is playing up and had zero help from Sony or Vodafone so what does that say? You can't odds that it's a great deal for the latest Samsung phone so to vote cold just because some have had bad dealings is just petty.

usually the international ones, do id be worried about it being fully compatible with this countries service providers, and the warranty not being worth the bytes its displayed in.
Bear in mind these are far east import so samsung uk wont cover the warranty as i found out the hard way
Just bought one of these 'like new' from Amazon warehouse for £529. Don't know whether to cancel and get this instead now
Also consider that they don't say whether they pay the VAT & Import Duty on this so beware, it may turn out more expensive than an official UK model if you do have to add both when it arrives.
I would hold fire on this phone . Note 8 out soon and the lg v30 . This will drop further in price and the fingerprint scanner at back is a nuisance

"...prices shown on this website are the final total you have to pay to have the order delivered to your door, without any hidden charges and customs delay...." meaning no import VAT to pay by the customer (as typically if EGC ship from HK it is first delivered to a UK-based intermediary before onward delivery to the buyer, where the intermediary would be laible for any import fees if chargeable).

TBH if paying the merchant directly via UK credit card to qualify for UK-enforceable S75 protection, the merchant's customer service is reasonably irrelevant as all issues and warranty items are serviced by the UK credit card company. Unlikely to receive Samsung-equivalent warranty service from CC co - typically just a full refund cos in my experience the CC co is frustrated by S75 obligations and just wants the hassle to go away.

You're much better off with the Amazon version. It's a UK phone, firstly. The one's sold on these sites are foreign imports. You're also receiving the greatest 12 month warranty from Amazon.
The reason I'm considering doing an import is I'd like the extra large memory (128Gb) rather than the 64Gb version that we get in the UK.

The model I'm after is Samsung Galaxy S8+ SM-G955FD which has the Exynos 8895 Octa chipset, which is a bit quicker than the Snapdragon 835 and it has 6Gb RAM & 128Gb of internal storage.

So, as this is so cold can anyone give me a link where I can get one from the UK for a similar price then, please? Obviously, there must be similar UK prices then?

I don't see apple phones get heat either. I personally don't see how 500 notes for any phone is ever going to be a hot deal.
Hey guys I thought I would share this with you.

I too made a purchase from Eglobal, I bought teh S7 Edge 64gb and I made a review and unboxing video of my purchase.

I also cover a small bit on the consumer credit act.

A lot of you seem unsure of your buying rights so please come and check out my experience - and dont forget to like and subscribe to the video

I just thought I'd check to see what deals I could find on the EU versions of Amazon, only to find that I'm getting just €0.93 to £1. Absolutely shocking.

This isn't comparable to a UK spec S8 which comes with a full warranty, it's up to people whether the saving is worth dealing with a company known to have poor customer service and a relatively expensive phone with no warranty. Grey imports will only tend to do well here is if they're much cheaper than UK equivalents to make up for the lack of warranty.

I've had three items off eglobal all came with in a week and no problems but never had to contact them about any issues with the items I see that some people have problems it's always a risk it's down to choice really get things cheaper save money and except the risk or pay more and get less risk and more support I'm not sure I'd spend this much money I'd be looking at smartfonestore myself they are brilliant but I will add this my gf has an s8 and she hates it compared to her s6 edge she wishes she never upgraded and went sim only as in day to day use she notices no difference and the battery is no better in her eyes and the notifications don't come through sometimes it puts apps to sleep
