Sony XA1 + PS4 + Uncharted 4 from £18 pm with Virgin Mobile (24 x 18 = £432)

Found 24th Jul 2017
Just came by this looking to upgrade my mobile contract. Not to sure on the quality or review of the phone, but spec looks reasonable and I've never bought into bigger brands. But with the PS4 & Uncharted 4 game it only works out an extra £2 pm over the non PS4 option, so a decent deal I think for the price difference.

Not to sure which version of the PS4 it is either as the website or fine print doesn't seem to say. My order suggests I won't get it till the 12th, so a slight delay. But if ordered before the 31st July the deal should still qualify for the extra date offer to despite that the new tariff won't start until next month as ordered whilst the data offer was on. Also available in white.

18 x 24 = 432 - 200 = 232 - 160 = 72 ÷ 24 = £3 a month

Retail sellers of this PS4 package indicates its the PS4 slim, but whilst the pic on Virgin Mobiles website suggests a 500gb, its not clarified in the detail either. So will be interesting to see if I get either the 500gb or 1tb version of the PS4 package.

Don't know why the deal link isn't working, I'm looking at the edit option and the correct URL is there but clicking on the get deal tab it goes the the HDUK homepage?.
Decent deal if you haven't got a ps4 yet and looking for new contract and mobile. The handset also has remote play
Potentially £30 Topcashback if you can manipulate the url a bit

£432 - 200 (ps4) - 160 (phone) = £6 a month for contract.



It works out at £3 a month for the contract if you minus £200 and £160?

18 x 24 = 432 - 200 = 232 - 160 = 72 ÷ 24 = 3

Does this mean you can cancel the airtime after 30 days then?

In comparison the cheapest pay monthly I researched was tesco mobile at £15 per month to say EE at £25.50 odd per month with other amounts in between or probasbly higher with no PS4. At worst this deal is £3 per month more than cheapest option I could find with (+£72) and a random higher end offering £7.50 per month cheaper (-£180).
Reviews are a bit mixed for this one. Very high megapixel camera and Moto G5 comparable power, but low resolution screen, awful battery and crap sound.

If I didn't have a ps4 and Uncharted 4 already, I might have bitten at this though.

The only concern I have with my order is that whilst I ordered yesterday (24th) but stated in the webpage about still also inclusive of the extra data offer (4gb instead of 1gb with the £21 pm option I went for) that the contract detail when I login just shows the baseline data of 1gb for allowance once it starts!.!. Weather this is normal or down to items not being expected until the 12th August and the new allowance not starting until 22nd August I don't know.

Mate has this phone and got out of his contract 12 month early, the storage space gets used up fast even with a memory card in it, applications install on both the internal and the external memory, with software updates the internal storage gets eaten fast!!

Did a live chat with a sale representative:
No worries, for that tariff in particular it's not showing the deal visually, but I can assure you it's been added automatically and you'll receive the 4GB of data, is that okay?
Look like 4gb is what you still get so I'm in. Thanks OP
Great deal which ever way you look at it.

Phone is basic, but a phone is a phone, so many people worry about camera or resolution, but in reality it basically makes no difference unless using devices for specific apps or situations. Great deal in my opinion, if the phone brand said Samsung or Apple this would be 1000 degrees+. But, that's just how fickle fan bois roll.

Did he have the same poor battery issues? That's about all that's concerning me at the moment! Otherwise I can live with the other complaints.

You can pay off the full phone / device element and then cancel the contract at any time
Is this an android phone? Thanks

Yes, Android 7.0 (Nougat)
Is there a possibility where I can cancel the airtime and pay off handset?
Just confirmed.
Airtime me can be cancelled.
£360 device cost includes PS4
Does anyone know if this works with remote play. I've tried looking online but can't officially confirm. Thanks
Looks like a great deal. The Sony Xperia XA1 might not set the world alight but it's a good looking phone with those razor thin side bezels and has a decent brand behind it. Even without the PS4 this would not be a bad deal.

On looking, I would pay another £3pm to get 4GB of data and 1500 mins vs 600MB and 300

Yeah, I've been looking round this morning and realised this is an even better deal when combined with the quadruple data offer on the £21 pm for the 4gb data and minutes etc, which is what I upgraded to. In fact the nearest offer giving at least 4gb data with no upfront cost I've found is £22 pm, with just 600 mins and no PS4.

Don't like that there is a delay to release it, but as long as I still get the quadruple data as signing before the offer finishes I'll be happy.

Didn't have or notice any of that when I chose the offer last Monday. I simply chose the £21 tariff with the quadruple 4gb offer, which I assume stays on that offer unless I change tariffs at any point?. But whilst when logging into my account it shows I upgraded on the 24th, yet the tarrif wont start until the next month renewal it however only states 1gb data for the upgrade and not the 4gb it should be under the offer.

In fact, going through the order process again that above lifetime 4x data is indeed there and selected by default which is why I don't recall it maybe. But begs the question why there is no mention of it on your account after you order and log into your account?, it just states 1gb but no mention of the lifetime 4x data as part of the tariff.

While either are great deals I don't need another contract so I can't confirm or deny it but I'm sure if you did it and screenshot it then they'll honour it
Check the terms and conditions. I think I read the ps4 only applies to the 300mb tarrif.
I signed up for this after speaking to web chat customer services, the phone arrived today but no PS4. I phoned them to find out why and they said it didn't show on their system (despite me holding the phone and receipt in my hand) and it was only the phone. They then told me to cancel the order and to re-order it to see if it works and put me through to sales. Sales told me they couldn't do that as they can only cancel the order and then I would need to wait until they receive the phone before they can re-order it on a whole new contract. They then transferred me through to cancellations who said that when you order online you need to then phone them to complete the order so you can get the PS4 bundle.....At no point is this shown when ordering online. I've now got to wait up to 5 days for the bag to arrive so I can send it back and then they will cancel the order. For anyone here who has ordered this online I would strongly recommend phoning them to make sure they will get it.......Although you will likely be told yes and it won;t arrive and then be told different information from everyone you speak to after.

They can try that crap with me and I will kick ass, my order clearly shows I have the phone and PS4 on order and I get 4gb of data instead of one. Virgin customer service is shocking.

I would go as far to say they are much worse than talktalk and that is saying something.

Did you order and select the free PS4 tick box I had to and the same with the 4x data?

I ordered the 1gb with 4x data and mine shows I am getting the PS4 as well but you do have to select to receive it free if you don't, well unlucky I suppose.

Has anyone else had this issue or had to call to make sure they get the PS4? In My Account, under My Orders does your order state Sony XA1 Black and PS4? That is what mine states, so I cannot see any reason for them not to honour it!
I've ordered and my order confirmation definitely states 4 x data and PS4.
Delivery on the 12th August.
My wife wanted a new android phone and better contract in terms of signal and features (data etc...) so this fit's the bill well.
I will now sell my original ps4 and keep the new slim and put the proceeds from my sale towards each monthly bill.
Cheers op

My account show the full order phone, 4gb of data and PS4.

I did ring them after reading the above comment.
They guy told me yes the order is fine.

He said what happens is you may well receive the phone first but the PS4 on the 12th, the reason for this is because people were buying them keeping the ps4 and returning the phones lol
