The official answer is no... However when I have purchased "A1 Pristine Condition" phones from Laptops Direct they have come with them, and in the original box. I think most the refurbished phones Laptops Direct are selling are phones returned, by people who have changed there minds and provided the accessories have not been opened, they will be included. But you should assume no and if they come it's a bonus.
I currently have HTC10. I'd say it's a good phone. The cameras both have ois so good for video. The battery life dropped dramatically after about 18 months to a point that it would turn itself off while reporting 45% and after only about 2 hrs of use. htc replaced the battery and it's now great again. It does get super-hot sometimes especially when quick charging... I think that might be what killed my battery. I'd recommend at this price but do a battery test in the first few days and return if capacity low. I use AccuBattery for this... Recommendation #2!
I had a Desire, One X, M7, M8, M9, 10 and U11 - not a single fault in 7 years or so. Just changed to P20 Pro as U12 looked a bit meh, but quite sad to have deserted HTC :(
90 days warranty is awful as HTC phones are not great from my experience, various issues after 90 days like: battery drain, screen issues, slow os and other issues. Good luck!

No it is a single SIM and a separate drawer for Micro SD.
Yes has the HTC Boom Sound ear phones in box, but with a USB-C connector on end. They are supposed to be very good, but not tried them myself. No USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is included, don't try buying a cheap adapter off eBay it will not work. You'll need to buy a genuine HTC one, they are about £19 on HTC's website, but sign up to HTC Club and get it for around £5-6. Apparently it contains a high quality DAX in the connector and hence why justify price. But I'll leave that for others to argue about, but works fine for me.

Nah, no import fees is correct unless summat goes south outside of EGC control (misinterpretation by border stafff etc) and the 3 month period is there to allow for customer to claim about any gone south issue. I've had quite a few items of significant value from EGC, all arrived promptly without any additional fees, but that didn't stop me from persistently using credit card to qualify for S75 if something had gone south.
I think their T&C are ok. You won't pay any import fees. As long as you pay on a credit card then you are protected if anything went wrong you could claim against the credit card company. The 3 month limit is just to safeguard themselves against people delaying things and coming back years later and claiming the import duties weren't paid. After three months it should all be sorted, either you have your phone and are happy with it, or you haven't got it and claim back aganist the credit card company.

Maybe true both mine were pre-orders from HTC store directly. Its still a good price for the phone as its sub £300 new I sold mine used for this price in the summer. The S8 after only 4 months use gets bit laggy swiping the HTC was perfect even with a years use. I hardly have anything installed either... Maybe 5T next. :)
I've seen some reports of WiFi issues with the 10, less so the 8. Mine is fine. Most of the issues can be fixed with radio updates or maybe some early devices had issues.
Maybe you were lucky but a ex HTC employee joined the company i was working for. He said HTC were fully aware of all the common problems but didn't have budget to recall them. What actually happens is when you are on Wifi it will disconnect if the mobile coverage switches cell tower or changes from 4g to 3g or vice versa. My missus honor 7 was fine, and when i switched to samsung was also not a issue. Ive only seen it on HTC in different locations so its not my wifi AP or me.
Beware. They charged me €80 to get my LGG6 back when I returned because they said there was nothing wrong with it.
Ah so that's what has caused the marks on my screen! Might try get it replaced for a new one that I can resell just before my warranty and contract is up. Although complicated by the fact I live in Australia now. Thanks for the info.
Alright folks my experience of eglobal has been great so far. I have purchased a few items of them with no complaints. I bought a high value item which developed a fault & the customer service & communication was great. return was dealt with swiftly to a GB address. The real reason for me commenting was to recommend this phone. It is a weapon to say the very least, rock solid build buttery smoth operating system, the built in dac is phenomenal list goes on. There still isn't a phone that does what this does. Was looking at all the flagships & ended up buying this again. This is my opinion.. Buy it you wont be disappointed. Its not a surprise to the owners of this phone that HTC are finally getting the recognition... Thanks
Why discuss the phone when it's eglobalcentral?
If I had a choice between this HTC & a LG V20 for around the same price, I'd take the latter - especially in your case robertfrancis1975 with that LG G2 of yours.Use NEWARRIVAL at checkout for £8 off: https://www.eglobalcentral.co.uk/lg-v20-h990-dual-sim-64gb-sim-free-unlocked-titan.html - The one thing that could be off-putting is the massive difference in size, although many have grown to like their larger phones: https://www.phonearena.com/phones/size/LG-G2,LG-V20/phones/7969,10202Don't forget to use a credit card (or at least PayPal) if you do go for it.
My good solid phone has developed the same screen issue twice where the top 1cm of the screen fails to work. First time fair enough, some will have issues. Second time tells me phone is pretty rubbish.
Yes. It's the camera that seems to let the cheap Chinese mobiles down.
Anything bought after 15th November 2015 (I think) has a 24 month warranty. The reason they give the voucher and refund is because the stores are semi-independent or franchised so they really don't care if they're refunding another store, they certainly rarely bother testing it (don't send it to Head Office as they'll take weeks, probably will test it and claim it's fine, or in the worst case of mine - they took my laptop back, denied having it and put it on a shop floor for sale! I actually went to court over that for the refund and won, that was back in 2012). Some items, e.g. smartphones, will obviously depreciate overtime and you might get current value for it only, but the VAIO Duo was such a rare laptop that they didn't update the price and £250 was cheap in 2015 anyway, let alone 2017.
That's good, how long is their warranty with laptops and computer components? I'm surprised after 20 months they were happy to give you a voucher for what you paid for it tbh.
It came with a UK adaptor which I included and they offered me grade A once they realised their mistake.
I might have recommended that site to a mate who needs a new phone, were it not for the constant and very unnerving pop-ups. What sort of legitimate site tries to be so invasive?
I replied to this already (I didn't specify price) - I paid £250 and got back £250 as a voucher, even though CeX don't currently have any in-stock, their current sell price is (would be) £250. I think they say they'll return current market value but I've never had a deduction on a return - and to be honest, with CeX, I am used to returning some of the junk they actually send.
Agreed. Must have been living on planet Zorg. Hopefully the HTC U 11 coming soon will be a big seller.
Here on planet earth is a household name
Because it's not clear and for any of the eglobal deals I've seen the slight discount is not worth the loss of warranty which I assume is why people are voting them cold.
Why every single eGlobalCentral thread gets cold? Bought my LG G4 back in the day, no issues whatsoever. Have you got "European warranty" - no, did you pay less - yes. Clear?
These phones are grey imports with no eu warranty or support, while you may be able to get help from your credit card company it's not straightforward at all (had friends tried this route with grey imports and didn't get anywhere) and the considerably increased hassle if there's a problem with the device should be weighed against the saving.
Okay based upon your experience it would appear that you've been very fortunate up until now with what you've purchased and what has subsequently been delivered. Fair play and I can't knock that! I'm not suggesting Amazon Warehouse deals aren't worth the bother but I am saying you can get unlucky and nothing is guaranteed - you take your chances. True it's not a massive hassle when they have to go back and I haven't yet had an issue with that (touch wood). The only slight annoyance in my recent experience was what I had purchased subsequently went back up in price for the brand new equivalent right before I knew I would need to re-purchase. Saying I was slightly miffed was an understatement!
Sorry... but no... Ive bought lots from warehouse "like new"... they are BRAND NEW SEALED! With the manufacturer seal still on or the clingfilm still wrapped on it. They are simply customer returns that are not to be resold as new. But then wtfdik - Ive only had about 6 brand new items from warehouse that were "like new"... Oh and its FREE RETURNS so if you can put up with the hassle who cares. In fact amazon have in the past refunded me and said dont worry about returning it...
IT WILL be second hand otherwise it wouldn't be sold as a Warehouse deal! Jesus some folks don't understand what's classed as second hand these days. To enlighten you, if someone opens the box and breaks any manufacturers seal the product is second hand. Yes it may not have been used but it's still not technically brand new. Add to that the FACT that warehouse deals are a lottery and you can get used, damaged or items missing it's not a sure fire guarantee you'll get something immaculate and complete no matter how much you personally vouch for Amazon. As an example of my recent experiences, which you'll no doubt argue aren't relevant, I purchased a 28" monitor via warehouse deals, described as damaged box but item has no marks and is complete, and it was as described. Albeit it was definitely used even if briefly. Just last weekend I had delivered a high end bluray player described again as box damaged but item as new - this time around it arrived in an immaculate box but the bluray player casing was coming apart, there were scratches all over it and no remote, accessories or cables. It got posted right back to Amazon for a refund. So you're experience may be either very fortunate or you're over egging Amazon warehouse for hot votes in my opinion.
Someone liked the deal as all gone now.
Been a while since there has been a post from an Amazon fanboy. I just cannot understand why people are so obsessed with Amazon - just as good/bad as any other online retailer. Personally would much rather buy from someone who uses DPB for deliveries - especially for high ticket items, Amazon might well drop it off to someone 100 yards down the road who you have never met before.
mine took 1 day to fix. Collected on a Wednesday and returned to me fixed Friday morning!
I'm not saying you're wrong, just that my experience differs from yours. I've had a nexus phone and used custom ROMs on various phones so I'm familiar with stock android. S Health is easy enough to disable in the application manager, but can't say I noticed any difference before and after disabling it. I must admit that I find it odd that anyone would complain about bloatware when they are using bloatware though. :) Disable S Health and then make comparisons with stock android, but don't complain about a phone because of a pre-installed app that can easily be turned off. My S7 edge runs great, doesn't harass me and hasn't needed a reset. Don't get me wrong I'm no fan of bloatware, but if you have the option of disabling and silencing it then I don't think it's a big problem, especially when you have a micro SD card to expand storage if you're worried about the space it uses. I avoided the S6 for the lack of expandable storage and the Nexus phone was my biggest regret for this same reason. I ended up giving it to my wife lol.
HTC 10 used - like new - in original packaging - £398 from amazon warehouse: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01DO2NGI8/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used&m=A2OAJ7377F756P
New HTC out imminently (was going to be called ocean which was a good name but now HTC 11 U?). So prices will drop for this everywhere... http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/139054-htc-u-11-ocean-what-s-the-story-on-htc-s-next-flagship The S7 Edge was 450 brand new from amazon warehouse last week... nearly went for that but decided to wait for prices to drop.
yep and then touch Wiz comes along to urinate all over the bonfire :(
Shame most of the units came with a poor display that had pink tint issues amongst others. Returned 4 of them in total due to them all having the TIANMA panel. Some were linked than others, but all had horrible yellowing towards the bottom of the screen. The sharp panels are supposed to be a lot nicer but for some reason seem to be hard to come by in the UK.
Never dropped a phone in a river or the loo. Waterproofing is a gimmick to me.
HTC's U Ultra and Play have skipped over the headphone jack, waterproofing and wireless charging for some reason. Just odd when other high-end handsets haven't, and another example of HTC missing tricks when trying to be competitive. They make largely desirable phones but miss features people want - not saying waterproofing is essential but it's nice to know you get a bit of protection from the elements after spending all that money.
We'll have to wait and see, but either way there's going to be a price drop on the HTC 10 sooner or later. I'm not sure what that has to do with the headphone jack? HTC aren't exactly known for great marketing strategy, but I wouldn't say they're dead yet as it hasn't been a strong year for any of the major smartphone companies.
