You can also receive a possible £35 from either Quidco or topcashback, whichever you prefer, but that will wipe off the promo code.

Seems quite cheap for a 5G handset in the current climate.

As well as being 5g, they improved the one gripe I had with this phone, the battery size from 3400 to 3800, plus topped off with the Snapdragon 855.

If that had 10gb data it would be tempting.
Still a good deal though.
Good effort but if it were I'd just buy the handset outright already. 5gb data is not enough to make this price worth it imo
Wonder when this will be on general release.

Handset the best I can see sim free is £749.

Makes 5gb 5g data over 2 years £9.50pm.

Still seems OK to me, considering this dame deal with the s10 5g, 7 pro 5g, reno 5g is well over £1k

It's okay for low usage definitely but the users that opt to pay the premium for 5G are unlikely to be casual users.

I don't care how good the deal is, we all definitely are paying a premium for 5G.

Of course we are, early adopters beware, prices will steadily (rapidly) decrease.
Shikes only 5gb!

I remember last year when people used to say shikes only 500mb, or 1gb, now it's 5gb, how things change. 5gb is enough for a heck of a lot of people, WiFi is everywhere these days.

Yep once market matures for 5G and coverage is more wholesome then its the time to upgrade. Don't buy into marketing. These networks always, always oversell.

Hold them accountable and deliver on their promises is what I say. Let the rich and wealthy and those keeping up with the Joneses pay. Who wants worse battery life in a phone?

Anyone? Any takers? Because that's the result of higher frequency waves to transmit more data imo.

I don't begrudge anyone happy to pay the deals around the £20 mark. Early adopters are needed to incentivise the networks.

Yup, Re: Battery, the mate 20x being the prime example, they've made the battery smaller to accommodate the new tech needed to fit in the thing, given it now charges quicker, but that's not a sacrifice I'm currently willing to make.

Currently using the awesome 20 X with that big battery, and it's gonna be hard to change from it now

The battery is what draws me to that phone. Now that project ara is consigned to the history books along with open backed phones, we don't have a way to go from 0 to 100 real quick.

One thing I failed to mention previously is that I believe a lot of optimisations in software and engineering to come in the next few chipset updates. Within 3 years the market will approach maturity and saturation imo. Only a minor guesstimate BTW.
MrSwitch30/07/2019 08:35

Haha exactly


I'm not too bothered about having a 5g handset yet just that it has the sd855 rather than the 845.
I'll get a 5g handset in a couple of years time when it's more established and available where I live and work.
I'm hardly going to be going into a city just so I can get fast download speeds and since I'm in the burbs it ain't likely to be in my area anytime soon.
It always reaches us posh people last you know.

I'd agree with that, look at 4G, same kind of comments, and thoughts as the 5G roll out, in a couple years when 5G is standard, prices will be back to normal

That's where I'm gleaning some of my predictions. Maybe it could be faster than 4G? Depends on the marginal propensity to purchase of users. Basically how needy they are for the extra speed. However we do not tend to have real hardcore tech enthusiasts in this country than say like... 🇯🇵

Yeah you're right, I know zero people that are as into tech as I am! It's a bit of a crux when trying to have a conversation, that's one of the reasons I like this site so much.
Great price for this. Will be another 12-18months before I upgrade. 5g will need to be nationwide and mid range 5g phones will be out by then.

I agree, I've a Mi Mix3 and a Max2 (not3) but both ranges are completely different. Both have great attributes.
Anyone know why the non 5g Mix3 phone says it has 4G+ as well as 3g/4g.
What's 4g+???
