Found 21st Mar 2016
GRADE A unlocked, not the compact version.. it is the full 5.2 inch 1080p screen version.

GRADE A has always been in new condition for me from SFS.

For this price, it is a bargain imo, only released in October 2015

Comes with usb cable in SFS branded box, this is the black version, but I have seen white/gold also in GRADE A as well.

The ​Z5 premium has the 4k screen

​Only the z5 premium does. And it's not really a 4k screen, it up scales in specific Sony apps and runs at 1080p in all other instances.
They always removed the serial number which makes it so difficult to re sale it after sometime or to claim warranty, I had purchased LG G3 from the them once, after knowing all this stupidity don't want to waste my money....
Darnit, just purchased a Nexus 6P for £365 last week.... do I return it and get this plus £100 in my pocket?!?!?

IMPO none of the so-called flagship phones had decent batteries last year - they simply did not put powerful enough batteries into phones to run the chips, memory and screens for a normal long day of use IMPO.

The Samsung S7 Edge appears to be now starting to address this but, IMPO, we need 4000 sized batteries as standard in these very expensive phones. The battery technology is only just beginning to catch up. I'd rather have a very cheap phone for another 18 months until the battery side of things is sorted.

It is also going to be interesting, another 12 months from now, to see just how well the sealed battery units in the likes of the S6 have held up to day to day charging. What if we begin to see lots of failing batteries around the 18 or 24 month marks?
I think is not about technology they purposely fit the low capacity batteries so people not use the device for longer run, and the credit goes to Stupid apple who actually started this ****................

​Sealed batteries have been around for a while now. Im still using a HTC M7, it's about 2.5yrs months old and I get about 15hrs on a full charge just email sync, whatsapp, hukd and some browsing. I was getting nearer 20hrs up until 18months

​Really? Doesn't sound right. I know cex don't accept items without a visible serial number, im surprised a retailer sells item after removing them.
I still get 2-3 days use out of my Xperia Z2 which is close to 24 months old and has a sealed battery.

other buyers can confirm that, I had two phones both were came without serial number the sticker was clearly removed, when I called them regarding this to get the replacement they said all phones come like this and this is because they want to protect something (I really don't know what) but better check with other guys to make sure

Camera is supposed to be better but that's probably determined on how good the software is, and I haven't kept up to date on how that's progressed on the Z5. I have an S6 and it was plainly average on Lollipop, on Marshmallow it's a completely different phone, battery life massively improved, speed and slickness of the OS much improved.

S6 Caveats:

Fixed storage amount
no micro sd card slot
fixed battery(easy to change if you need to though), not waterproof.

My 2.5 year old Nexus 4 lasted 8 hours on standby and only lasted 20 minutes browsing. Would never get a Google/LG phone again. My new Z5C lasts for at least 3 days with moderate use.

All sold out
remember smartfonestore only give a 60 day warranty.
Any deals on a new Z5 premium? Thanks
I'm on a Z2 and was feeling tempted about changing it for a Z5 but then again I think I will wait a couple of years more before changing as there doesn't seem to be enough differences to encourage a change.

I called SFS to ask about manufacturer warranty and they've advised that the phone comes with the remaining warranty.

Agree about the S6, anybody who's seen any of my previous rants about this phone will have seen how much I hated owning it. Upgraded it to Marshmallow last month and it's like owning a totally different phone, battery life has improved beyond all belief, I mean I've gone from looking for a charger after about 6hours to still not needing one at the end of the day. Lag has all but disappeared, no more memory leaks or force closes and the camera is still fantastic.

Would I prefer it over a Sony Z5....................No it's still a Samsung afterall and it still has TouchWiz....:)
Sony phones always disappointing in my experience with two of their earlier phones. Not even a little bit tempted

You are lucky. My Z2 battery was a beast when I first got it. 2 years later and battery is not great. One day use max!

It's dead easy to change an S6 battery though, I have an S6 you just heat the back up and take off the rear. We do it all the time in work when replacing back cover on the phone when someone cracks it. The S6 battery life is over 1.5 days now in normal usage for me with Marshmallow, it was less than a day on Lollipop.

It's an a flawed assumption that it's hard to change the battery on phones with sealed in battery, yes some are difficult but many aren't difficult at all.

it's possible to put high capacity instead of the regular one ?

No Samsung would have done that already if they could have done. You can get battery covers which make the phone fatter, not recommended. Like this one >
