As the title says I think this is a pretty good deal for both a decent phone with a good data package and a PS4 with a top title.
If you factor in the cost for a similar sim only deal (minimum £10-£15) then you're getting the phone and PS4 and a very good price.
I'm in the market for both and this seems a good option.
My only question is how this model ps4 will handle the VR unit?

Contract is the freestyle plan:

Sony XA1 Black and PS4 with FIFA Game (Cheapest sim free phone deal is £169 and the PS4 and game is worth around £200+)
£0.00

£18.00

24 month Freestyle credit agreement. 0% APR representative



Freestyle plan1500 minutes, Unlimited texts, 1 GB data
Lifetime 5 x Data
£4.00

I’ve got the same ps4 and the vr is great

Thanks for the info pal.
Can you also use the VR as a standalone screen for playing and watching standard non vr content? (Basically making the PS4 semi portable)

I've come from a number of galaxy phones to the Sony. In my opinion it's not a good. Period. But at the same time, it does everything I ask of it. It's not terrible (no where near) but it is cheaper than a Samsung for a reason.

As the years go by, I have realised I don't need a super duper phone than does a million things, the Sony works just fine for me and the deal with the PS4 is a no brainer. I've saved myself £6 a month and sold the PS4 for £200 as I already have one.

The resale value of the Sony isn't going to be half as good as the S6 I had but I'll cross that bridge in 2 years time

Mediatech ... Bag of rubbish, lags and speeds inconsistently, very disconcerting. Makes you seasick cold from me

Anyone know if virgin mobiles come unlocked as standard?

I wouldn’t buy this deal on the basis of the phone. The phone in itself - is actually quite poor. However, if you think about the PS4 with fifa 18 costing around 200 ish and then the sim only costing around £10 a month it’s actually quite a good deal. I’d potentially sell the phone immediately, then, think about buying an S7 privately or off a trusted good site such as music magpie or smartfone store.

Your S5 is miles better. Worst thing about the XA1 is the battery life, actually saying that, there’s quite a few other problems with this phone.

This was my idea exactly.

The deal i done was 40gb for 24 pounds a month and goes to minus 100..

I was thinking about getting rid of the PS4 and keeping the phone/contract. But the iD one I'm on is sufficient at £6pcm.

May avoid and wait for that elusive S7 deal. Ta

That's the way this forum goes unfortunately. Sheep vote same as each other.

This deal doesn't seem too bad if you sold the phone and ps4 for say 350 quid. About 8 quid a month for the sim if I worked it out right. Although saying that you can get better sim only deals I think.

Where can you get better SIM only deals for the same allowances? (5gb data etc...)
I currently pay £10 for 2gb in one phone & £5 for 1.5gb in my tablet.

Cashback not guaranteed and from what I've heard 3 are notorious for declining cashback

Good deal and the Sony XA1 is actually a really nice little phone - feels great in the hand and looks pretty classy for the money too with those skinny side bezels. As a package it’s good value all things considered

Yes but all things considered was that a good deal? This is factoring in all elements (allowances, phone & PS4) and it is a good deal.

Considering moving to virgin as they use EE network and I am looking to buy a PS4! Don't really want the phone but wonder if the sim would work in my iphone?

Yes my iPhone is unlocked as just leaving 02 as can't get a signal so they unlocked it so can take any sim

It's working for me.

Have this phone, got the deal with the uncharted ps4 bundle for £21 a month a few months ago, coming from a galaxy S5 it's totally fine, works fine, is quick enough, camera is decent, call quality is fine. I have a tablet at home so just use it as a phone, great deal, the Mrs is going to get one as well.

Huh?

Got mine delivered on Monday.
Sold the phone for £150 which makes it £15.75 PM for a good allowance sim and PS4.
I was paying £10 a month for 1gb data on 1 sim and £5 on a sim only for 1.5gb, cancelled both of those now so only paying an extra 75p to what I was.
