Found 15th Jun 2016
We all know about the o2 deal that loads of us wasn't lucky enough to get a couple of months back. I think this is the first deal that I've seen that is comparable in *value*, even though it costs ever so slightly more.

-Unlimited Mins
-Unlimited Texts
-*5GB* of data
-Quidco available (£30)
-NO Upfront cost

Personally I'm happy to pay £2 more than the o2 deal and get 5GB of data. Once you factor in Quidco it costs the equivalent of £32.24 a month!...Meaning it's only 74p more than the o2 deal a month, over the term of the contract.

Remember this is the Edge version (bigger screen, beveled edges, bigger battery) and not the standard S7.

On a side note, I moved from Giffgaff to EE due to terrible speeds last week. The difference is huge! I don't even need to speedtest it, it's night and day.

You'll need to scroll down the list on the website. It's currently the 4th entry.

Hope it helps someone.

I knew it would go cold the second I posted it because a huge amount of people only vote based on the price over the contract and effectively ignore the calls / texts / data being included. It's very strange.

When I was looking for a S7 edge deal, I used the search on this site to narrow down the best deals and check them out as a starting point. I believe this truly is the best value one out there with a decent amount of data, so I just hope someone else comes across it by using the search function.

I actually purchased this just under 2 weeks ago, but with the £50 upfront cost. A bit annoying, but I'm still happy enough and don't want any of the hassles of sending it back.

Just a heads up though - I watched S7E deals for a few weeks before jumping in. When deals like this pop up on MobilePhonesDirect, they don't last long. I assume they have a limit at that price.
The exact same deal is also listed at £38.49 / month, which I assume it will revert to after X number have been sold at the lower price. I missed out on 2 occasions and kicked myself over it for a week!

TCB also have £33.00 cashback, but I prefer QuidCo after too many non-tracking TCB's along with other users.
803.76? China price for we spec, circa £200. Samsung must think were all bonkers. 10,years back Samsung phones were cheapies remember? everyone wanted a Nokia. Yes, they-are-a-changin'

Research and development, marketing employment, transport not cheap you know...sure they are priced at more than they are worth but that's good business, supply and demand...do you think Nokia weren't making these sorts of profits on thier old phones? end of the day when you take the value of the minutes, data and texts it leaves the device costing a very respectable amount...also here's why they're changing...Why Nokia got destroyed by Samsung and Apple

This looks like a cracking deal, not sure why voted cold. If you consider a sim only deal with the amount of data, it would cost about £ 15 pm. Which takes the handset code to around £440 and in my opinion is a good price for the Edge which you won't get in a chinese cheapie.
Looks like it was a misprice - up to £38.49 now

Yes, can see it again now, was a bit strange as I added it to my basket and phoned up EE (my contract is up with them so have a PAC code) to see if they could match the deal (they couldn't) and during this time the order in my basket changed from £33.49 to £38.49.

I've seen it again now and have ordered at £33.49 - time for PAC code ping pong.

I've done the ping-pong in the past. Found it to be easiest with Giffgaff as it was all online and automated.
Cracking deal with EE I think, Doubt EE direct will match it as ive tried numerous times.
Vodafone have been leading the way recently with there £32.00 for 6gb and £37.00 for 12gb (Via mobiles.co.uk) with a small handset price. This is best EE deal ive seen.
Does it include EE Extra?
I was under impression if you went direct with EE it would but if via 3rd party then no.
Heat from me great find either way if you managed to get it as this price as I know its gone back up again

Just a note if you click on get deal its £38+ but if you alter the monthly rate and reduce upfront cost to £0 it shows the deal, but not EE Extra

I have waited all day to finish work so I could buy this but when I add to basket, the price of the handset goes up to 128.99? Is this happening for anyone else?
and wait 7 days for delivery?
sorry...sorted it.
Very hot! However I wouldn't be surprised if it gets voted cold. HUKD is weird about phones like that. Due for an upgrade next week. Decisions decisions...
Great DEAL!!!! Many thanks.

What do i need to type/search in quidco to get the £30? I have just registered with them as i have never used them...

Yeah, I've got 2. One is a wallet type and one is just a general one for when I'm working from home:

Good quality and real leather. Bulks the phone up though! Gets the best reviews out of all the wallet style cases.

No problems, fits very nicely. Makes it a bit hard to press the lock button due to the material, but it's not too problematic.

Thanks! Just got this deal instead. Worth the £2 for faster 4G and Europe Calls/Texts I think. My data usage is between 2 and 3 Gb, so don't mind the 1 gig less!

I honestly don't think the 'faster 4G' is worth the cost in most cases. I'm on the normal package and get over 35 meg a second in a pretty low signal area. Quite remarkable.

The EU roaming though...that's absolutely worth it if you travel to the EU regularly. If you don't, then buying the packages when you go would probably work out better value.

I didn't. Hardly any of the edge ones get good feedback. That and I don't see the point with the wallet style case. I find them more irritating than useful to be honest.
I'm insuring the phone, so if the worse happens, I'll just get it replaced.
If you go on the special offers page on the website it states the following: "These offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or promotions including cashback sites such as Quidco or Topcashback". Good deal though nonetheless!

That's just the special offers page? This is just a normal contract page. If Quidco wasn't available on a normal contract, then there wouldn't be much point them doing it

That's true, it's always worth a try using TCB/Quidco anyway, just this same deal is on that special offers page when I was browsing the site for other offers so could be part of the sale?

Had one of these since the day they were released SIM free and literally couldn't recommend it enough. Normally change phone every couple of months but haven't felt the need with this thing. Top notch deal
EE are the best in the world at what they do.
