I think it is worth taking a punt at this level of saving (30%), they are likely to be in brand new condition and if you are not happy with the refurb you can always return it yourself.
Yeah it's worth trying at this price, should be 14 day return online so nothing to lose if it's not what you expected. This will get hot.
It's a shame they removed the magnetic charging port but didn't add wireless charging
I think this may be a misprice as it is the same price as the Z1 Compact. Great deal.
I got it wrong........

Hmm, wont let me update the link and now the link for Coral is giving an error....looks like its oos or pulled, hope a few of you got one anyway!
will give coral a miss, its quite feminine
Gone for one, was about to order the one for £299, saved £70 assuming it is like new, will see tomorrow if it arrives
The description says SD 820 ... it's not.

Good price. The colour is wrong for me.

Wow, that's such a backward view!
Was about to order the coral one, vanished just before moving to the payment step.
Is it just me or is the link gone?
Think I missed them all - been after a Z5 Compact for ages, hopefully they'll come back into stock if any of you lot return them again
great phone.. can always use a vinyl skin or even a case that will hide the pink.

Its a orangey colour and its not that bad actually, I owned the Z3 in this colour and it was pretty cool. Just checked my order progress and it says awaiting stock, looks like me phoning tomorrow to cancel, ah well. Only what I suspected but worth a go

These are locked and will have been used for longer. They will not come with accessories and original box either but it is still not bad.
Has anyone spoken to the company?

The phone was supposed to be delivered today. I called customer services and apparently they don't have any stock. They wait for customers to return a phone so they can send something out.

Unbelievable.

I'm awaiting a call from a manager.

Spoke to Emma this morning, she was helpful but they do not have any stock and cant guarantee when they will, depends on who returns one and when. Asked to cancel order. Crap company before we even start. Asked for my money back.
I've owned to Z3 Compact for over a year and it's been a great device. In my opinion the Z5C has a better camera (but it's still a bit slow, and noisy in low light), the screen is brighter, the speakers are marginally louder and it has a good fingerprint reader. Battery life is about the same. My Z3C has around 100 apps on it and it's still blazingly fast. Side by side the Z5C is no faster (ymmv)

In my opinion it's not a good enough upgrade from the Z3C, and I don't like that they took away the (useful) magnetic charging points and didn't include wireless charging.

I also think that the Z3C looks nicer.

I'm a bit wary of glass backed phones now, having read about the various cracking issues. I'm very careful with my Z3C, but it's a shame that I need to be.

Just my opinion.

It said "In Stock" on the order page. Is this just a way of them getting out of a misprice?

Could explain why the order page has been deleted and is unavailable on their website instead of jut saying Out of Stock.

This was a legitimate deal. I ordered approx 6pm last night and the handset arrived at 9am today.

The handset was mint, and came boxed with charger and unused screen protector.

I returned it as the Coral colour was yuk factor 10.

Well I ordered around 3.30 yesterday and I got the cobblers that there was no stock, I also have not had my email saying I will be refunded due to no stock, despite Emma saying I would.
I've received it too in OK condition - a few minor marks with one near the USB port and the other on the SIM card flap where the paint has been peeled.

Worst of all, the previous owners details are still on it and clearly hasn't been reset!

That's awful. Send it back

That's the plan - makes you wonder about their inspection process and if it really exists beyond checking what's in the box.
Can you believe these Tossssers, twice I have asked for a refund and this is the reply I have just received

Good afternoon

Thank you for your email.

I do apologise for the delay in response, I have taken a look into your order and I can see we are waiting for a delivery of stock of your chosen handset.

As you have ordered a refurbished unit, the process is that we can only despatch once we have available stock,

Once this has been booked in your order can be allocated and you should then receive a delivery update via email.

I do apologise for the delay.

Regards

Lucy
Ouch...looks like this company should be avoided

Yes, I even called them last night after they requested me to fill in a questionnaire to verify who I am, I was promised the phone would be sent out for delivery today. No email to say there was no stock today either, I have had to request twice for a refund and then they tell me they will send out my phone when someone returns one. They are jokers.

That's ridiculous. You should call them and ask for an immediate refund.
Anyone else received their phone...or not?

I ordered it within 10 minutes of this deal posted and I still have not received it.

I spoke to the manager and it was handled extremely poorly. I'll give a few more days before requesting a refund.

To the guy that received his with existing user details... that's just shocking oO
