    I have had the Realme X50 Pro 5G for a while now and it's been a great handset. The P30 Pro is still one of the greatest phones of all time. My wife has that and it's on Android 12 now and it's still one of the best phone cameras that has ever been. Some really good deals here 🏻
    Crossbow's avatar
    The P30 Pro's EMUI version is definitely 12, but the Android base version is still only 10 in reality androidupdatetracker.com/p/h…pro
    You can install the AIDA64 app on your wife's phone to confirm this play.google.com/sto…=US
    For a Mar2019 phone, still receiving security/software updates (if not 'upgrades') almost 4 years later is great!

    Btw, I'm on the EMUI Dec22 update, while the Feb2022 one is out but my phone hasn't yet received it.
    I'm experiencing the main camera blur issue mentioned here huaweicentral.com/hua…-1/, hopefully sorted by the latest update as mentioned...
    • Huawei has released a new software update for the P30 Pro flagship with version and it comes with February 2023 security patch for improved system safety. While, users of this phone want to fix the blur issue that is occurring on the main camera of the flagship

    Good price for Xiaomi 11T Pro
    Update to Android 13 should be available.

    Some of the ZTE Nubia Red Magic look very interesting and keenly priced.
    Incognito123's avatar
    ZTE Nubia red magic are more cheap on their official site i.e
    latest Redmagic 8 pro is £569

    Not sure about purchasing something with an in-built rechargeable battery that has been used multiple times before.
    Crossbow's avatar
    If you buy a secondhand phone & find the battery is knackered or unacceptable you can have it replaced. Also use a battery health app like AccuBattery to confirm.
    It's relatively inexpensive in most cases to buy a new replacement from eBay - make sure it's listed as brand new & from a UK-based seller so it arrives quickly.
    Then have it fitted by your local/nearest phone repair shop - they charge around £20 labour for this & can usually be done within an hour if they are not too busy, or pre-book a suitable time slot with them. Might also be a good idea to ask if they will fit a battery supplied by you, as not all will do. So do a little research before buying, etc. (edited)

    Hi @MrSwitch what would be a good replacement for Samsung note 9 in £300 range preferably grade B. Thanks
    MrSwitch's avatar

    Big thumbs up for my daily driver being on this deal.

    Poco F3 in Artic White is a lovely phone for less than £200. Well worth it.
  9. realdeals's avatar
    Astonishing price for the P40 Pro, talk about holding it's value. What a superb piece of kit it is and should have been as legendary as the Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro.

    Any sub £100 deals to replace a damaged Huawei P20 Pro?
  11. Cloudane's avatar
    OnePlus 7 still a great phone, I sold mine for a Nord CE 5G recently and the 7 was equally fast (if not actually a bit faster) and better built. And 5G in my experience / area is no faster or better coverage than 4G.
  12. hellop4nda's avatar
    @MrSwitch if only there was anything that rivals the £200 Pixel 6a deals Google was running a while back.. I'm looking for a phone with half-decent specifications that is going to last a while from a security update standpoint, but can't seem to find anything sub-£200.
    uklemons's avatar
    my guess - wait - patience is a virtue - there is always the next deal!

    think of it this way - the pixel 6a is to small even if you want a tesla cpull! (edited)

    Bit on the black shark 2 (c grade for 129) that you have now removed (presumably because I bought it) and it's immaculate barring a tiny deep scratch in the top corner that can't even be even when the screen is on and scrapes around the charging port, enabling me to have a fully fledged gaming phone for my geforce now and gamepads needs. The legend of the switchy continues!

    Thanks mate!

    Do cex have returns policy where if you don't like or change your mind you can return for full refund?

    Best allrounder for ~£180? Currently have a Motorola G8 Power.

    I wish Xiaomi would make the Mi Max 4. I do like a large screen and the OH now wants a Mi Max 3 (the same as mine) as her Mi Max 2 hasn't had an update for a while and some apps don't work with it.
    There's a few new ones on ebay but from China, there's also son pre-owned too from UK, I might just have to get her one of those..
    Proveright's avatar
    I am with you. I have Mi Max 3 and it is a brilliant phone. For me the most important part of a phone is the size of the screen. I don't understand why all these other manufacturers, charging a lot more money don't make phones with wide screens like the MiMax?
    If anyone knows any new phones with screens like the MiMax size please post?

    Thanks, Mr S, had a nightmare trying to order an Oppo X5 Lite to replace broken Poco X4 Pro. Cancelled order to go for the X5 lite from CeX as above. Saved over £40! (edited)

    Anyone know what's the cheapest 5G phone? All it needs is 5G and a Camera and i'll be happy. Memory card slot would be a bonus.
