Obviously not literally the best phone on the market, but it's a mid-ranger. And for that price, heat added.

Not used them myself but when they get mentioned on here reports aren't good. Id you get import tax added on you might as well buy from this deal, I bet it'll be easier returning it to the uk as well.
I'm another one who'd jump at the chance at purchasing this at this price. Unfortunately purchased another phone for £200. Still hoping to replace the battery in my Z1 at some stage.

Problem with these Websites is they are grey market, meaning your warranty most likely won't be valid in the UK and only the country of origin. Thats also how they offer low prices, as they as they aren't being taxed by UK and they avoid import fees by sending item listed with a lower value. One thing to check as well is that not all frequency bands are always available on the handsets, due to them being made for different regions and so 4G coverage could be effected etc.

Original price was over £400
Reviews don't seem good. This might be a lot to do with the price at release. Is it worth waiting for the moto g5s+?
Argh I'm tempted now but I just bought a Nokia 6!
Saying that, the Moto G5 Plus is still way above this Sony in term of benchmarking

The Moto G5 Plus benchmarks much higher and is cheaper with codes on the Moto site.

A review is an opinion not always reflects what a phone is really like. I have seen one of these in action it is fast and fluid and camera also good.

Benchmarks mean nothing in real world usage. The Sony is as fast and fluid as the Motorola

Nope,they don't do refunds. I embarrassed myself by going in and exchanging for a £10 phone getting the bulk of my money back so I can get this Sony

I bought mine with a £10 O2 SIM... I guess I can't do what you did then...

Saying that, I've not really had any issues with the Nokia. I like that it's pure Android.

I paid £189 minus selling the sim for £10, so not sure I can justify £50 to go to the Sony...

It was the moto g5s plus that I was thinking. Which is an upgrade from the g5 plus.

What did they say when you exchanged it for a £10 phone?! Did they just refund the £189.99 back to your card?

Looking to replace a broken nokia windows 920 with android so please excuse the dumb question but will this get android 7 update?
Is this better than a Sony XA1?
Very tempted as looking to upgrade from Z3 compact. Will I see a marked improvement..? At this price I might bite..
It has a snapdragon 650 which is roughly on level with a snapdragon 810 but has better heat management so it's powerful the down sides are the battery life is quite poor it's good price for this phone
