Great price at the minute, can see this price being the norm for a while.
This is better than the trade in deal from last week.

Don't know how people get away with them, far too big, even the S8 is a bit on the large side for me

JL price match??

I've had a few large phones of late and enjoyed watching films on the train etc. But they are not practical on a night out or in your jeans pocket. Own a s8 now and it's perfect in size. Still get a large screen with the bezel less edges. Hope the s9 or sx will be the same. Perfect phone almost, person prefer a larger internal hard drive, due to not all things being able to transfer to external card.
Heat for the price.

JL price match??

I've gone for it

Looked at the S8 at carphone warehouse the other day. Samsung have started to make the phones far too narrow so reading news or watching films is not as good as they used to be. I have a note 4 and was going to get the S8 or S8+ but ideally want a phone as wide as my note 4. Any suggestions? The Huawei Mate 10 Plus?

Check JL is in the list of retailers for claiming the VR+.

its only s8 not s8 plus

Orchid Grey is dearer at £572 .99 :-/

After getting camera problems on my S6 and S7 Edge im thinking of buying a different brand. Any opinions on the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL? Great looking phones but a little too expensive right now.

Not sure if you mean Huawei Mate 10 Pro? If so you are going to lose headphone jack and you won't get the same level of support as with Samsung. My two year old note 4 gets regular security updates every 4 weeks. Also, not sure if battery is swappable in Huawei.


I noticed that videos on 2:1 screens either get cut off and stretched or displayed with black bars. Photos also come with massive black bars.

How do you guys rate this phone? I have only heard good things about the S8 but I can feel the coming ones are gonna be worth a shot

Unfortunately JL is a no go

Thank you for your enquiry.

In order to apply a price reduction on a purchase, the criteria in our pricing policy must be met. I regret that after review the request you have submitted does not match all or parts of this policy.

Mobile Phones Direct doesn't have a high street presence and thus doesn't perform on the same basis as ourselves.

If you purchase this and keep proof of purchase then you will have a 2 year warranty from Samsung anyway.

Try the Note 5. I upgraded from the 4.

It's fantastic, perfect size imo. Easy to hold while still having tonnes of screen space thanks to those small bezels.

First phone that hasn't done my head in slowing down / lagging.

JL price match??

On their website it says the requested price match must be a shop, not just a website😣😣😣😣

My front facing camera on the s7 edge has been failing randomly for the past year almost. Fails and then the camera app wont start till i go into its settings and delete cache etc. Even then only the rear camera will work and going back to the front facing causes the app to fail again. This can last days but then it randomly sorts itself out. Really weird problem which i had on the S6 too.

Wonder why the vr and controller offer is not available for note 8, it's much more expensive as well

Indeed, Note 8 is pointless unless you absolutely need a stylus and let's be honest, who does?

better camera option, too.

Damn, I bought this from JL couple of days ago for £590 and opened it. Is there anyway they will give me full refund?

Yeah JL SHOULD give you a refund even on an opened phone, but make sure everything is wrapped 'just as new'.

Try taking it into a Samsung repair center.

I had the laminate coming away from one corner of the screen on my S5 (may have been dropped ) and they replaced the screen within an hour.

It was a couple of weeks under the 24 month warranty that Samsung phones come with and was really impressed by the service.

I pre-ordred a Pixel XL 2 , expecting delivery for Dec 25/26th. (!!!). In the end my head got the better of me as £799 is too stupid a price to pay for a new phone. Its OOS now so people will be flogging it for silly prices when they get their delivered.

Personally I'd go for a Pixel XL 2 IF the price was right. Not at £799.
Samsung S8+ - yes. But only if less than £700 - JL will price match box.co.uk for £660-ish i think, but Im still waiting to see if theres a cheaper price round the corner.

Hey, has anyone bought in this webpage before? if so, how are the refundings? How long does it take the delivery?

Thanks!

Unfortunately the Samsung phones do slow down over time. I have an S7 and it now slows and apps crash etc.
Google Pixel 2 XL is my next one, as they are meant to stay buttery smooth.
Also the SD card gets on my nerves. Whilst having a very fast SD card, you still when scrolling down through lots of photos, suddenly get them not appearing and having to wait for it to play catch up- and sometimes it doesn't.
With the Pixel XL it uploads all the photos and videos in original quality for free to the cloud and deletes them off the phone if you want to keep space.
Also the camera on the Pixel XL is by all accounts amazing, getting the lowlights and highlights at the same time better than the competition.
The screen on the Pixel 2 XL is very muted, but by design. Also the possibility of some duff screens out there- hopefully LG will have fixed the quality control.
Pixel 2 XL seems to be the one to go for and will hold its value well.

It needs to be sold by Amazon, so the one you are probably looking at it is not, then not eligible... I did the same thing, the amazon sold one is 730£
