Back in stock :D
Aaaaaah I was too slow! Oos again (lol)
It's back in stock I've just ordered!
It shown back in stock on Voxi website, and also managed to check out without problem
Just been on with CS and they're going to refund it. Said it should have been brand new & unopened. Back in stock now so will try again...!
It was listed for £339.90+£3.99 postage..But it was with that discount offered from ebay + cashback from Quidco..so was around £280 in the end. ( NEW/Sealed 128GB ) Don't know what I was thinking at that moment that I didn't bought it straight away... Currently they have a used one 64 GB for £190
Do you have more details of where you got this, seller etc?
As expected Google has just announced the Pixel 4a for £349. It has a better Snapdragon 730G processor and a slightly better camera. Again it only has a single camera which due to the magic of Google software will produce world class photos. I would not recommend a Chinese competitor because they would be highly unlikely to offer the 3 years of genuine software support that Google offer with their new phones. https://www.wired.co.uk/article/google-pixel-4a-review
It's great phone but I don't understand the heat for this now at this price. It was £279 direct from Google or £265 from Currys back in May. Now when we're on the eve of the 4a release, this would be the worst time to buy this IMO (unless it was seriously cheap)
Anyone know if this works be considered a upgrade from a S8 plus?
Do we think EE Retentions would match this? I'm in my last 30 days and am debating either a 3a or SE 2020. To get the SE it looks like I'll have to ditch and switch but might try my luck with this and see if they'll match it.
it is owned by carphone warehouse and uses 3 network for coverage however that contract only comes with 500mb data and 250 minutes but like I said someone might be fine with that and/or might want it just for the handset
ID is 3
That's not far off the actual price is the phone, and isn't id o2 anyway?
id mobile has it from 15£ + 10£ upfront given the data is low but someone might just want it for the handset 370£ total over 2 years 340£ with cashback from tcb
As far as I can tell, the iPhone SE is predicted to have software support and security updates for possibly 2-3 years beyond the time when I predict that the Google Pixel 3a will have its last update.
Hmm... I honestly don't know, sorry
@MrSwitch does this come with a screen protector preinstalled or we need to put one on?
Debating about whether to upgrade my Moto G5 but I'm concerned that this is a bit bigger than it. Has anyone else had both to compare?
Apparently delayed until October.
Looked at the 7.2 when it was around £180 including ear buds (https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-nokia-72-cyan-green-64gb-dual-sim-nokia-power-buds-kevlar-case-18699-at-technolec-ebay-3431775) but the reviews put me off. Camera ok but not great etc. Don't have hands-on experience with it though unlike yourself.
If I was going android again it wouldn’t be with anything other than a Pixel. This is for the same reason I use iPhone now. There’s more to the experience than just pure hardware and specifications and these other companies just churn out phone after phone with slightly better hardware but never consider the whole experience. Apple, Google and Microsoft (and Huawei now I guess) are the only major companies that are not sticking someone else’s software on their hardware and trying to make it work.
Just throwing this out there, but could the Nokia 7.2 be a better option? Similar specs, slightly older processor with the SD665, but very decent cameras and guaranteed updates for two years under the Android One programme and stock Android user experience like Pixel phones. Very premium feel with the glass finish and screen is beautiful. Comes with 4GB Ram, 64GB Storage, 6.3in Full HD Screen, etc... Currently available for £159 on eBay with open box versions and comes with a free genuine Nokia case which is usually £15 extra. I put offer in for £150 and got accepted. The camera improves even more on the Nokia 7.2 when you use the G-Cam camera app hotukdeals.com/deals/nokia-72-mobile-phone-sim-free-new-condition-box-may-be-opened-to-check-contents-3457504 Yes it got poor reviews online, but that was when it was selling for £300+.
Got the exact same reply. Will give it another couple of weeks before contacting CPW directly
Same here , this is the latest I've heard after emailing him saying I haven't yet received my voucher "Oh, how frustrating… so sorry this still hasn’t arrived. What I am going to do is raise your query again and mark it as urgent to encourage the voucher team to send it out. I will also write them an email saying you’re still waiting on it. You’re not the only one still waiting. Regardless, this should’ve arrived by now. Let me know once you receive it please?"
It looks like this Ben is the only one left at CW, he was replying me a couple of times now, he was chasing my voucher and keep promising me that I will get my gift card. But nothing so far.
Yeah waiting here too, he said to get back in touch if I hadn't received it by the end of July so I emailed saying I still hasn't received my voucher , just waiting to hear back from him now
He confirmed mine tracked.
£15 above my wanted price and then i wonder if i should wait for the 4a. i need a new phone before 04.08.....decisions, decisions and i am really bad at making up my mind :S ;(
So far this has NOT been a pleasant experience. I added the phone to my basket at £329 and purchased it. It went down in price within 1 hour of me buying it. I sent 2 messages to Currys eBay. They didn't reply within 2 hours. So I contacted Curry's who told me they had cancelled the order. I re-ordered the phone at the new price. And you guessed it.... They've sent out 2. One at the £329 price and one at the £265 price. Woeful customer service so far. Can only hope their returns are free.
Then I’ll try to get it from Amrika if the price is cheap. Btw, there is no XL version for 4A.
Doubt it, the 3a was £399 (iirc) I'd imagine £449 4a / £499 4a XL.
Switchy... how much do you think the pricing would be for the new Pixel 4A (due to be released on 11th june). I reckon it will be £399 and if it is that will end my Karma, lol ;)
Better battery but worse camera (https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_m31_hands_on-review-2070p4.php)
This is available to preorder for 245 stg from amazon, released June 1st
What would you recommend?
Poor standards for a 279 pound phone. No sd card slot and 64gb storage is ridiculous.
it's getting closer to the price i am waiting for, which is £250 :)
Now back to £329? Expired?
It's on (and in use) most of the day currently and seems to last all day. App says 17 hours which feels about right
Looks like 4a release pushed back until June: https://www.pocket-lint.com/phones/news/google/152147-google-pixel-4a-release-date
31p cheaper here! :) https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/google-pixel-3a-64-gb-just-black-at-currys-ebay-3455922
Does anyone know if this comes with a usb-c to usb-c charging cable included?
Here you can find a picture about how power delivery works: https://satechi.net/blogs/news/whats-the-difference-usb-pd-2-0-vs-usb-pd-3-0
I would like to know how this is possible too. Genuine question!
Google USB-C to USB-C 1M Cable - White for £ 5.99 https://www.mymemory.co.uk/google-usb-c-to-usb-c-1m-cable-white.html
Through China... Ops, is not Huawei....
At this budget, good luck. No, don’t even think about 5G for a good year or 2 it’s gonna be a slow rollout and not worth spending big money on at this stage.
This deal has been on and off a few times recently but it's the lowest price for the 3a (£265.05) that I'm aware of currently. Pixel 4a release looks like it's been pushed back to July - https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/40825209
thanks just got this for my old father in law, wanted a simple and cheap phone thats got security updates for a while :D
Is this better than the LG V20? (Which you can get for £130 on eBay)
Im am so on the phone on this, your right better phone for same price retail does seem odd, but why im torn is first battery life, 3a has more efficient (slow) proccesor which is good enough but sipps more then the 3, and slightly bigger but overal it has been noted better battery second is headphone jack, my laptop and playstation i use bose headphones, its quite annoying not being able to with these, adapter dont work too quiet. I could bag a brand new pixel 3a for £200 (guy i know is selling a voucher for 50% off) I am currenty waiting for the 4a, if they do a good offer like free something with it i might be torn to spend the extra £200, but overall I don't think the camera is going to be worth 2x cost of 3 or 3a so probs just hope the 3 / 3a go down more
Recieved mine and it had a few small scuffs on the back but everything works great and battery health is showing as 100%. Cheers!
Just received and gone green screen, after an hour. Lucky free returns, contrary to order details.
Same here! The phone is spotless. This is scorching hot deal.
Just had mine delivered from Argos Clearance. Came in the original box with all the original accessories, manuals etc. The box had clearly been opened but everything had been repackaged and resealed. Phone is brand new. Not a mark on it. I got it in black so any scuffs or scratches would stick out like a sore thumb. Equivalent phone ‘brand new’ is around £329.00. I paid £198. Very happy.
Cool, glad it worked out mate, and you are also welcome :D
Well, Google have still not been back in touch but I just checked on the warranty website again and guess what... my warranty has changed to November 2021 from November 2020. Result! Cheers again Switchy. Took a bit to get there on this one but this is effectively a brand new Pixel 3a with 18 months Google warranty remaining for just under £200 (y) 🔥.
Wow, you're welcome
Bought this for my mum, arrived in perfect condition looking as new, plus came with the original power brick, very pleased. Thanks @MrSwitch
Nice months extension on the refurb there. Google want even longer to sort out correcting the Nov 20 warranty on my one.
This was £240 on VOXI few months ago and my biggest regret is not buying it from them!!
Same here. If it gets down to £250 I'll bite.
Agreed, this is far too much for this phone.
Yeah, especially when you go back in your time machine to 2014 when that design was popular. I love it when 35% of the front of my phone is the bezel. SE 2020 has to be compared to the 4A, and, as usual, it loses on the majority of things. Apple will no doubt keep their old customers, but very few people are switching to Apple these days.
Expensive. Voted cold.
I picked one of these up from the local phone shop for £100 - but caveat of no warranty or accessories. Nice phone, battery isn't the best, the volume buttons are in a stupid place and I really miss wireless charging. In exchange you get the latest android, a good camera (Personally prefer the colours from my XS but haven't done a head to head yet) and a fast OS.
That's odd. Must be a bug. Anyway, with motion on you should still get both the still and motion captured.
Are you using the Google photos as gallery? If I remember right there a setting in there to remove motion from photos.
Thanks very much but, as in previous comment, that is showing as OFF but still does it.
Yeah, thanks. Found that and 'motion' is OFF, but it still does it. Advice still appreciated though.
I bought one on the 5th march, It looked brand new but the box wasn't sealed just had red tape on it. I just looked earlier and there is no cable in the box!
how to sell it as new :/ , thanx for info
Having read through that thread, some got unsealed boxes
Really ? its not brand new sealed ?
Will wait for Pixel 4a now, but once it comes out, if this one can be had under £250 new then I might reconsider.
No expandable storage makes this a deal breaker. Other than that everything is bang on.
Good point,looks like you have to get at least the £10 plan, you can set it to not recur after the 1st month then ditch the voxi SIM if you don't want it, good news though is currently tcb is £15.15 so you get the phone for £235, plus of course you can try voxi/Vodafone and see what the signals like round your way.
Minimum 6 months time required for boht EE or non EE customer for example if someone get this phone on contract and sell it to CeX before 6 months of contract date then you as well as orginal owner will not be able to unlock it before 6 month period.. I guess i was lucky with google support centres as replaced two used pixel 2 xl purchased from ebay in poor condition and they send me new refurbished one within week time. They only asked IMEI and where i purchased it and then said its under warranty and asked me.to.send phone to poland with pre paid label
True regrading the unlocking. But if you know anyone on EE, they can request an unlock for you even within the 6 months I believe. I've had three pixels 3s off ebay, for one they required the Google order number which I obviously couldn't get. For another they required something similar. For the third they didn't require anything at all and transferred ownership without any questions.
Can you get this without airtime because they dont give option to just buy phone for £240 without airtime contract
Give the notice as soon as it's delivered and you should be fine
Just ordered but going to use my 3 SIM how long untill you can cancel voxi SIM?
I think that’s what the rrp was of the 3a? I remember it not being as compelling of a price in the uk compared to the US because of the options from xiaomi and Nokia here. For £240 though, it’s More than worth the price
Did anyone buy one of these? Would like to know the condition.
Google have some weird stuff happening on their phones every year. I can't say I will ever stump up my cash for one of their phones, based on the sources is use and I only buy new.
Yeah I've never seen it before on any phone I've owned (Apple, Xiaomi, Pixel, Samsung)... But this one lasted about 3 hours after my porting my account across before certain apps started failing, then a few hours later it went into full boot loop corruption mode. Such a pity as I actually love the device (I have a Pixel 2 XL atm), even when the horrendous notch. Can hide that away and then it's fine. My 2 XL is still going but the battery is around 85% so with support ending later this year I figured I would put it in a drawer as a back up and upgrade.
You reckon (:I ￼Not very sharp here.
Bit rot was the term used by Android Authority. I have no idea what Google are using inside their phones to have so many issues with corruption and random reboots, but it ain't coming out of the top bin of components.
