Sky always send out sim card with phone but it seems 100mb data is not there anymore, you have to remove it when ordering. I have attempted to amend the description to the best of my ability. Did you find this to be the case?
Pity they don't do the 100mb/U/U SIM as a standalone contract for 50p/mth. I wonder how much the monthly charge will have gone up by the end of the 3 year contract.
Now that you have cared to explain in detail, I understand better and thanks. No question of deleting the deal as HUKD mods don't allow it and varied comments will keep coming.
I got this for my son I was actually only after the sim. I have lots of data saved so I rang up sky they let me use around 40-50g of data to trade £30 off this handset.. Which meant I paid £12 to outright pay for phone... So the sim with it had unlimited phone calls and text and 100mb data.. But because the sim is on my account I roll data over to my son all the time.. Worth ringing up to find out... Sim is free until I'm. With sky so basically paid one off £12 for my son to have unlimited calls etc bargain
Advisors don't usually know what they are talking about if it's not on their script paper (lol) (lol) (lol)
Decent price. Will probably be moving to Color OS instead of Oxygen OS soon though. Beta already confirmed.
Good deal if you looking for new sim contract otherwise quite close call
Yes does seem good to me if you are ok with Three (I know I am but a lot of people seem to have trouble). When I was with them a couple of years ago they may not have been the fastest download speeds but they always gave me fairly decent 3g & 4g wherever I was (streamed high quality Internet radio from Poole in Dorset to Harlow with it only dropping out once in the back roads for 3 or 4 mins).
Dragon, it worked out cheaper me doing it this way than buying it used from ebay.
Looks a good deal to me as have been happy with Three in my area and where I've travelled (and do lot of travelling for work). Although going to hang onto my OnePlus 7T Pro on EE for a while longer. 😁

This buyer's guide will introduce a few aspects of mobile phones and ways to finance your next phone purchase. It's easy to spend too much on a handset, calls, texts and data, but it's also incredibly easy to save money. Let's find out how you can cut the cost of your next phone, by finding a package which meets your personal needs.
Easy Direct Communication
The first modern mobile phone was created way back in 1973 when researchers at Motorola placed a call to their business rivals Bell Labs using a prototype handset. It took a decade or so for the technology to be rolled out, but by the 1980s, 1G phones were a common sight in major business centres.
The mass market for mobile phones really started to expand in the 90s, when SMS messaging was introduced (1992) and prepaid phones hit the market. Suddenly, mobiles became a key part of youth culture, with customised ring tones and games like Snake, and some iconic phone designs competing for attention.
Everything changed when 3G broadband and the smartphone arrived in the early 2000s. Now, mobile phones could handle huge amounts of data and display high definition graphics via touchscreen interfaces. Devices like the iPhone (2007) emerged which brought together computer technology and telephony, pioneering a whole new way to communicate.
By 2018, 1440p visuals were becoming standard, smartphones were being optimised for use with Virtual Reality systems, and fingerprint scanners were starting to seem old fashioned. With technology progressing quickly, every generation of phone brings new innovations.
What Are the Major Types and Models of Mobile Phone?
As you'll see when you scan the hotukdeals mobile phone listings, phones come in a range of different price levels and variations. Here's a brief rundown of the varieties you'll encounter when you come to buy your next phone:
Basic mobile phones – All across the world, millions of people still use phones from manufacturers like Nokia which allow them to text and call, but very little else. Lacking the range of functions offered by smartphones, these phones are great for people who don't want to be distracted, and simply want connectivity and nothing else. They are always a cheaper option as well, and with their simple interfaces they tend to suit people who aren't familiar with touchscreens and apps.
Smartphones – The most popular form of mobile phone these days, smartphones feature a touchscreen as the main interface and pack powerful processors underneath their compact exteriors. They are able to surf the web, stream videos, play games, run business apps, and – of course – send texts or WhatsApp messages and make calls. They vary massively by reliability, power, size, weight and price, so buyers will need to decide whether they need a premium model like Apple's iPhone brand, or something more generic and cheaper.
Keyboard phones – This part of the market is dominated by one brand: Blackberry, whose phones feature a large screen and a compact keyboard underneath (which can sometimes be slotted neatly into the casing, reducing the phone's overall size). They are great for business users, and for students who need to type large amounts of text but don't want to lug around a laptop.
Phablets – Phablets are a mixture of phones and tablets – and are also a middle ground between smartphones and laptops. Models like the Samsung Galaxy Note provide relatively large screens which work well with stylus accessories and are ideal for creative applications like art, design or architecture. And they also stream videos well, adding extra acreage for a better viewing experience.
This buyer's guide will be concerned mainly with smartphones, as they are the largest segment of the market, but bear in mind that alternatives exist, and you'll find discounts for all sorts of phones at hotukdeals.
Mobile Phones: Some Key Specifications to Look For
When buying a new phone, there are numerous key details to look out for. Get these wrong, and your phone could stream Netflix series' frustratingly slowly, or fail to run a game you really want to get into during your daily commute. Here are some specs that need to be brought into consideration when making a purchase:
Size and weight – Mobile phones are supposed to be highly portable, but the largest models struggle to fit into jacket pockets and can weigh you down as well. The screen size is another important metric, and is often measured in inches, so if you're someone who works in metric units, some conversion is required. These days, screens tend to measure around 5.7 x 2.5-inches or more, but some models offer more space than others, and it can really matter when streaming videos.
Processor/CPU – A good processor is essential if you want to get decent performance from a smartphone, so look for models with Snapdragon 835 or 845 processors and multiple “cores” (which help to carry out instructions more quickly). With Apple phones, the processor is referred to as “A” then the number of the phone generation, while Samsung's Exynos processors have 4-digit codes, like 8895 and 9810.
GPU – Just like computers, phones have graphics processing units on-board, and these can make a huge difference to playing games, manipulating photos or watching videos. The key metric here are the GFLOPS, which measures how many operations a GPU can carry out per second. Somewhere around 240-260 GFLOPs is currently the peak of smartphone performance.
Memory – The more memory your phone has, the more efficiently it will be able to run programs, delivering a slicker user experience. Measured in gigabytes (GB), the gold standard is around 6GB, and you'll need every byte if you intend to play demanding games or multi-task different apps.
Storage – Apps, games, videos and photos all consume valuable disk space, making storage a key consideration. Usually measured in GB, mobile phones tend to have 32-64GB of disk space, and sometimes more. You should also be able to store files with Cloud-based services like Deggo, while some models (particularly Samsung) cater for Micro SD cards as well.
Resolution – Different screens have different resolutions. For instance, even though a screen might be large, it can actually look worse than a smaller version if the image seems pixelated due to a poor resolution. The measure here comes in the form of a number followed by a lower case “p” - which shows the number of pixels across the screen. The most expensive phones offer 1440p, but some models drop down to 720p, which may be unsatisfying for streaming purposes and photography.
Battery life – Often overlooked by buyers, a mobile phone's battery life can make or break it as a usable device. Who needs a phone with amazing specs, only for it to cut out after 30 mins of use? Good phones balance impressive memory, resolution and processor power with long battery life, and there are still models around which let customers down. This is one area where basic (non-smartphone) devices score highly. You can rely on them to retain charge all day-long, so they are great for emergency use.
Operating system – Broadly speaking, there are two OS options for phones: (for Apple phones) and Android (for almost everything else), although some phones run Windows as well. iOS apps are checked by Apple and tend to be high-quality, and the OS is clear and well-supported. Android phones are more customisable and you can expand their storage space, but accessing support can be tough. For most people though, the OS isn't a huge buying factor.
Mobile Phone Data and Wi-Fi Connectivity
Data is an area that almost all smartphone buyers will have to make a decision. When you buy a phone, you don't just buy the processor, screen and casing. You also buy access to networks which connect that phone to the internet, and the data you take from those networks is generally rationed by price. Hence, data can be a major expense for heavy users.
Generally, data comes as part of a mobile phone package, and will be added to the bill each month, usually whether you have used your data quota or not. This can lead to situations where you overpay for unused data. In fact, a 2016 study found that Britons tend to use around 50% of their data allowance every month. So this is obviously somewhere that people struggle to make the right decision.
When you buy a mobile, you'll probably sign up for a Data Plan, where the monthly quota is measured in GB (or MB in some cases). If you're the kind of phone owner who only checks their emails and Facebook, and occasionally uses Google Maps, there's a good chance you'll overpay for data – so it pays to be conservative. But gamers and streamers will need much more. That's where the data deals on the hotukdeals mobile phone listings come in handy.
However, there's an alternative to buying data from your network. These networks connect to the web via 3G or 4G systems, but you can also surf the web via conventional Wi-Fi on most phones. Most phones are able to connect to Wi-Fi hot spots. There may be some issues with Android phones, with a few tweaks involving the Wi-Fi settings menu. Here's a handy guide to get you up and running.
Not all Wi-Fi hot spots are free and no everywhere is covered by a Wi-Fi connection. This means that relying on Wi-Fi to connect to the internet will inevitable mean that the web is sometimes unavailable. But with whole cities converting to free Wi-Fi, and free Wi-Fi spots available in libraries, museums, stations, airports and all sorts of businesses, you'll often be able to check your Facebook without paying a penny for data.
Picking the Right Mobile Phone for Gaming
Mobile phone gaming is increasingly popular, and the games available are becoming more complex as phone technology develops. But what should gamers look for when buying a smartphone?
Firstly, a decent screen size is essential, so look for 6-inches and above, and high definition screens are a major plus. Apple's Retina displays or the AMOLED displays on high-end Samsung phones will deliver crisp colours and HD visuals, without causing lag in the process. RAM should be maxed out, and disk space matters too – anything about 128GB is good.
Then there are things like speakers, which will matter to fans of action games which just don't feel right without a mixture of deluxe visuals and audio performance. And, of course, CPU and GPU power is essential.
But wait a second before opting for a premium phone like an iPhone X. The type of games you play will make a big difference. Many people adore puzzle games, card games and platformers for mobiles, and these don't require top of the line performance. So if you just want to play Candy Crush, don't be seduced by the most expensive phones.
If you do need a phone with maximum storage capacity, try to find contracts which offer storage for free. This is an area where phone companies offer target consumers with discounts and freebies, so hunt around and you'll probably find a gamer-friendly package.

Ways to Finance a Mobile Phone Purchase
When you've picked the right phone for you, the next step is key: financing. Whatever model you choose, there will be an endless variety of ways to buy the phone, the SIM card, and the connection to a particular mobile network – and a huge range of prices as well.
Phones broadly fall into three categories: SIM-only, pay as you go, and contract. All three have their advantages and disadvantages, and there are ways to save money with all of them. However, before we deal with them, let's think about some general tips on saving money when it comes to buying your next phone.
Always compare prices. Whether you opt for a long-term monthly option or buying just the SIM, there will be plenty of competing options from the various mobile phone companies. It hasn't always been easy for consumers to find the best value deals in such a complex marketplace, but price comparison sites now make things much easier.
Be careful about picking the right phone for your needs. Too many people are swayed by the marketing of companies like Samsung or Apple, or the need to keep up with friends who own the latest devices. For most of us, mid-range alternatives from lesser companies like Huawei or Alcatel will do just as well, and cost much less upfront. And as we've noted, people are terrible at working out their data needs. Try to access your account or do some calculations to get a ball park figure for how much data you really need, and buy a package accordingly.
Upfront costs can be lower than long-term costs. Whenever you buy something, you have to make a choice between paying more now, or running up interest by buying on credit, and the same applies to phones. If you find a handset you love at an attractive price, it makes sense to buy it and go SIM-free, instead of starting a package with higher final costs. But the price of upscale smartphones can make this a tough thing to do. Still, if you have the money it's worth calculating final and initial costs, and spending the lowest amount.
Why Should You Go for a “Pay as You Go” Phone?
As the name suggests, Pay as You Go (PAYG) deals involve buying the mobile phone handset and the SIM, without signing up for 20 months of payments at the same time. Instead, buyers access mobile phone networks as and when they need them, topping up their data allowance, texts or calls periodically.
You can generally top up Pay as You Go accounts online, but some networks also cater for top ups at bricks and mortar shops, so it's not usually a problem to boost your account if you need to make a crucial call.
This might sound like a great setup, and it is, with reservations. If you don't use your phone much or want total flexibility about how much data you use, Pay as You Go is ideal. But it has a major Achilles Heel. Networks charge a premium for Pay as You Go users, and these packages can be incredibly expensive for regular mobile users.
However, it's a simple and handy way to buy a phone. If you can't get a 20-month deal due to a poor credit rating, and you can't afford a handset for deal featuring just the SIM, it could be the only option. And it can be useful for people who want to keep a handle on their data usage.
What are the Advantages of Buying a Contract Phone?
This type of package is the most common way to buy a mobile phone. In these packages, buyers generally purchase the handset they desire for a very small initial outlay, even for high-end models. The cost of the handset is then paid off in instalments over the period of the deal, along with a fee for data, calls and texts.
In most contracts, the buyer receives a SIM-card with the phone, and pays on a monthly basis over 18-24 months. During that period, the customer won't be able to break the arrangement (which is the point of contracts in general), so they will be tied to a particular network until the term runs out.
Contracts can be great if you know what you are looking for and are happy with being tied to a network. You can get hold of a sophisticated, cutting edge phone without spending huge amounts of money, and you can often get good deals for data, calls and texts.
The flip-side is that customers can often be persuaded to sign contracts which don't deliver good value in all areas, which makes using price comparison sites and the hotukdeals mobile phone listings absolutely essential. Contracts also require a credit check, which can pose problems for some buyers.
Some deals are also interest-free, and these are the ones to go for. They are relatively rare, but by checking the hotukdeals mobile phones listings you should be able to track them down.
If you see a 20-month package that you like, it could be worth pursuing. But be sure to calculate your data needs, and don't buy more than you require. Stay away from salespeople in high street mobile phone shops if you feel vulnerable to a hard-sell, and think about whether you need an expensive handset or not.
What are the Advantages of SIM Only Deals?
These deals are very different to contracts. In these packages, customers buy the SIM card which contains their phone number, and can be added to any handset which accommodates that type of SIM.
You'll have to sign an arrangement to purchase the SIM, but these contracts tend to have some major advantages over handset and SIM deals. They are often more flexible and short term, letting you sign up for 30 days, at which point you can leave and try a different network. And even 12-month contracts featuring just a SIM card are cheaper than buying the handset as well.
Of course, there's a catch. With this type of deal, it helps if you possess a handset or purchase one. In many cases, this will require hunting around for an affordable smartphone handset, and it will often be possible to make big savings by combining your handset purchase with a SIM only deal.
In many cases, phone companies will want to sell a handset and a SIM as part of this kind of deal. If you aren't careful, this can be costly, as upfront phone prices can be poor value. Always check handset prices alongside the equivalent cost without the SIM, and the 20-month cost, before making a purchase.
The Different Types of Smartphones on the Market
When you come to make a smartphone purchase, you’ll find a number of different types to choose from. Here are the major varieties:
Android and iOS phones – Virtually all smartphones will run either Android or iOS as their operating system. Apple devices use iOS, while most other phones use Android. The differences between the two aren’t massive, but can be important (see the special Android vs. iOS section below). Other operating systems for smartphones are the Windows OS and Blackberry OS, but their market share is very limited.
Phablets – You may also come across the distinction between phones and phablets. Phablets are situated between ordinary phones, with their limited screen size and processing power, and tablets like the iPad, which have much larger screens (but can’t call or send SMS messages). They are more expensive and heavier to carry around but have more functionality than standard phones and smaller devices, like the iPhone SE. Examples are the iPhone or the Google Pixel XL.
Camera phones and standard phones – Another common distinction is between “camera phones” and ordinary phones. The vast majority of smartphones have cameras, but these cameras vary in quality. Good camera phones like the iPhone 8 have 12MP cameras, while lower-end phones won’t offer more than 6MP, and you’ll be able to tell the difference when your holiday snaps are enlarged.
Gaming phones – Not all phones are optimised for gaming, either. The best gaming phones have powerful graphics processors. They also benefit from having SD slots to add extra memory along with handy features to help launch and manage your game collections.
As you search through the hotukdeals listings, you’ll probably also notice that smartphones fall into several price categories. At the highest end of the market, Apple and Samsung devices like the iPhone X, the iPhone Xs, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel can sell for over £500, but there are mid-range options at £200 or less like Motorola's Moto G range or Samsung Galaxy's A range, or, and what you might call entry-level devices for much, much less. You’ll get what you pay for, but even the cheapest smartphones offer much more functionality than old-style Nokia mobiles ever could. Of course, the best place to find all the best smartphone deals is on hotukdeals.
iOS vs Android: Is There a Difference?
The overwhelming majority of the world’s smartphones run either iOS (Apple’s operating system) or Android, so you’ll probably have to make a decision about which one to go for. It’s not a massive deal for most users but there are some important differences that are worth thinking about.
For example, if you know that you will be relying on your smartphone to navigate unfamiliar streets, go for an Android phone. Google’s navigation tools are superior to Apple’s in almost every respect (although Apple Maps is rapidly improving), and most users will already be familiar with the Google Maps interface.
Compatibility is also a factor. If you are a Gmail user or have a large amount of business documents in Google Docs folder, Android phones will make it easier to link everything together seamlessly. Similarly, if you are an iPad or MacBook user and your world revolves around iTunes, using an iOS device makes much more sense.
Updates are another thing to think about. Traditionally, Apple has been far more efficient at keeping iOS up to date than Google has with Android. Android used to be updated around once a year, while Apple make regular refinements to their OS. However, the differences are closing, and for most smartphone users they will be very hard to perceive.
Flexibility could be more important, though. If you have technical skills and want to customise your phone, Android is definitely superior. The platform was partly designed for app developers to tinker with it and add their own innovations, something which certainly doesn’t apply to Apple’s tightly controlled OS.
Android is also generally better if you intend to transfer files from external PCs or other phones. Apple makes it a little complicated to add files that don’t pass through iTunes, while users of Google’s OS just require a USB cable.
Then again, iOS users can take advantage of the iCloud, allowing them to store much larger amounts of data in the cloud than is available (for free) to Android users. This is particularly attractive to professionals who need to handle group projects, and it limits the need for disc storage, making the whole phone more efficient.
Basically, both Android and iOS are easy to use operating systems with huge app libraries and the kind of features that everyday smartphone users will appreciate. The differences apply mainly to more demanding users, and neither is markedly superior to the other for general users.
Accessories to Improve the Mobile Experience
Mobile phone accessories can be purchased to increase the life of your handset, add storage space and provide a portable charging option.
Phone Case – Mobile phone cases serve a number of different functions; primarily they are designed to protect the handset from scratches or bumps, but they also add a stylish touch of personalisation. Some companies, like Otterbox specialise in quality phone cases for all types of mobile, but you can also find a variety of leather, plastic and rubber cases more cheaply on eBay. Alternatively, Tesco Photo and Vista Print UK make phone cases featuring a photo of your choice.
Screen protector – Screen protectors keep the vulnerable glass screen of your device safe and are easy to apply; they are available for many different brands. These thin transparent sheets are extremely hardwearing and provide an anti-smudge coating without affecting a phone’s touch sensitive function, or the original glass screen.
Micro SD memory card– Micro SD memory cards can be slotted into some types of mobile in order to increase the amount of data stored in the handset. They can also be removed and used to transfer information or images quickly to another device, like a laptop.
Power bank– Power banks ensure your mobile will never run out of charge when you are out and about. On one full charge, most power banks can deliver multiple full charges to a mobile phone using a USB cable. They are a great choice if you are travelling.
Adapter – New adapters can be purchased to fit the connection on your phone if you want to replace one that’s damaged or you’d like a spare for travel. You can also buy in-car phone chargers that plug into a car’s lighter and ones with multiple plugs that top up various types of phone from a single cord. Some adapters come with a plug attached whilst others have a USB connection.
Tips on Buying Best Price Mobile Phones
When it comes to buying your next phone, be sure to factor in all of the essentials: make and model, memory and storage space, graphical capabilities, data requirements, support, screen size, weight, battery life and – most importantly – price.
After that's been done and you've focused on a couple of possibilities, the best find an unbeatable deal is at the hotukdeals mobile phone listings. You'll find current deals for Apple, Samsung, Nokia and Google Pixel phones from companies like EE, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, Plusnet, Carphone Warehouse and Three.
Make sure you consider all the options. Our listings include SIM only, Pay as You Go and 20-month deals from all of the UK's major providers. And if there are interest free deals to be had as well, you'll find them here.
If you're buying an expensive handset, shopping around Black Friday in November could be a good idea, and Amazon Prime Day can see some deals arise as well. As new versions of the Samsung Galaxy or iPhone approach, older models will be discounted, too, so look out for savings.

There is no limit of HD, even with my 11pro 64GB, it shoots 4K 30fps and 1080 upto 60 FPS
Fair enough and apologies I made an assumption you deleted your own post. I can't really disagree either, I'd probably be more likely to consider one too but can't justify the cost.
Moderator deleted it because I was apparently attempting to avoid their swear filter. I standby what I say but there seems to be a few that are missing the point completely. I prefer apple products, I'm not a "fanboy" of any manufacturer. If I see it as value for money, and it does what I need it to, then I'll go for that. My opinion is that new iPhones are far to expensive, they out priced me, if I had the choice I would still have one. I don't want a second hand iPhone, I don't know where it's been, and like people say, you can't even get second hand ones at a reasonable price because they hold their value. I compared a mid-range phone, not a cheap Chinese phone, that's important to point out. I specifically pointed out the 120hz screen because my mid range phone has it, and the big selling point for the pro is for something very similar, yes apples is better, but not £800 better. This is all my opinion, I respect everyone else's, I just wish others wouldn't get so triggered because they feel the need to defend their purchase. I personally think this phone is worth about £500/£600 and apple would still make a healthy profit. For me, it's still high, but I would say you are getting what you are paying for.
I don't understand guys this fight between brands etc etc ..anyone buys whatever he wants...just saying I own a mi 10T pro from last year and I have never been so satisfied with a phone that new cost me 399£. One of the fastest phone I had.....beat camera and video camera and battery that is incredible.ah....fast charging too (embarrassed)
The front & rear cameras are far superior and worth upgrading for- the portrait shots for example are semi-professional looking. Also 4k video.
Isn't it worth/best buying from John Lewis as they give you a 2 year gaurantee on all electricals?

We're all fans of something normally but some people on all sides have this great ability of developing hate for adversary brand/platform/football team/political party etc - I noticed they often claim being victims of hate from opponents = those who hold different views, that should be suppressed of course. This mindset pretty widespread nowadays and social media tends to amplify it, the 'cancel culture' mindset. Anyway this a bit off-topic so will leave it there. Android/Mac user

Still shocking selfie videos thou 1080p at 30fps (annoyed)
It's hybrid dual SIM. U can use only one SIM if using micro SD card
Another Note 20 Ultra owner here - no overheating issues experienced at all during my year of ownership. It's been excellent. Fantastic display and camera. People seem to hate on it due to its processor but I don't see what the problem is. Has it made a difference to me in everyday use? Absolutely not.
Mine doesn't overheat.
It actually is. Even Jerry says that that kind of design would be forgiveable in phone costing 200$ but not 1000$. I switched from galaxy note 9 to oppo X2 pro (I didn't buy x3 pro because of Snapdragon 888 issues). The difference is shocking. The software is so much better. No more truly hated Bixby etc ... I thought about s21 ultra but the battery issues killed it for me. Plus I don't want exynos given by force. Not for this price.
Having recently bought 2 phones from 4gadgets I would definitely recommend them. Very good service and will do business again when I plan to upgrade.
Just ordered that this afternoon. posted deals here earlier but mods deleted then claiming they don’t exist despite me having screenshots on the post itself also. quidco have upped to £40 for iPhone 13 contracts (was £20 this morning )
Oh my mistake! I thought this was the max... doh.
Could get for total cost of £1,123 at mobiles.co.uk - 499 upfront + 26/month - 30GB (5G) data - vodafone
Okay so £6.50/ month for 20gb data and unlimited calls is good. If it was an O2 mvno I'd go for it Wait. No, it's £950 not 1050. I think you took the price for the Max
The phone is £1,049.00 - so seems ok? anyway, was just curious as to why it was cold as thought the deal seems ok.

Lol, many things are Powerful. No excuse for excessive heat production. Likely poorly made and or poof software management.
"Fanny Pack" 🙊🙊🙊
There have been a couple of alleged exploding handsets in India. The Dimensity 1200 AI SoC is powerful - if you run the phone in performance mode it apparently gets really hot, some reviewers say it’s uncomfortable to hold after a while. I imagine that wouldn’t help a battery if it already had a defect, especially in hot ambient conditions. I guess OnePlus will issue updates to tune the power management for the performance mode to throttle it more. Wish me luck, I already ordered one! OP, have some heat too!
A hot deal for an explosive phone (y)
Saw somewhere can't remember where that these Nord 2s were having battery problems of the exploding kind? Any substance to this rumour?

Oh Mr Switch, you know bigger is better!! ;) Good deal, but still hunting for that affordable Note 9 beater....sd card slot or 512gb memory at least!! Any ideas????? If this was the 512gb version then I'd be all over it! (y) (y)
Price seems to have jumped back up to ~769 for sold and dispatched by Amazon? Be aware, Samsungs T&C's state that the order must be sold and dispatched by Amazon to qualify for the free buds pro & smart tag.
Normally the Buds Pro are about £150, but they started to go down in price, coming closer to £120. The tag is close to £30. So, on the surface, the freebies are quite good value. The problem is if you want to sell them, you will not get anywhere near that price. Too many people got them for free with the phone, too many on ebay, price goes down. Got my S21 with Live Buds and the tag. At the time, the Live Buds were close to £100, sold mine for £50 and the tag for £20.
TBH, my first reaction, reading in between lines, not your fault, was what a miserable price for a 4a when the price is the same for brand new. It took me a while to realise this is 5g. I think the confusion may come because of the price, this is the price 4a usually is posted here. But who knows, this is at least £100 cheaper than brand new, and that's when the brand new one is on a good deal.
I expect they do know it's a 4a 5g but don't like the price and that it's used? Or, no accessories? Or not a Xiaomi / Realme, etc?! Its fair enough but I haven't seen one posted cheaper on here so I thought it was worth giving people the option.......and the 'people' have spoken!
I guess the cold votes are because some didn't noticed this is not the 4a that sells new at £270, this is the 4a 5g which I think is usually more expensive. I don't know if this is a good or bad deal. Grade C is a let down indeed.

Yeah the supposedly green and environmentally company that cites cable wastage as a reason to stick to the lightning port is also simultaneously happy to waste packaging on shipping chargers separately and make people carry around even more cables and chargers. I don’t hate Apple but stuff like this where they’re selectively green or selectively obtuse to adopting better technology does grate on me and I say that as a consumer of their products.
What does the missing pin allow?
Agreed. Not had any Baseus products fail but had two anker cables fail on me.
I understand it could be my mi10 which died not long after for port failure. Its just sometimes u get that negative vibe for one reason
Any brand can fail. In my experience these are better than any I've tried - Baseus even last longer than Anker for me and come in many more convenient configurations - right angles, multi connectors etc.

Is it or is it glass but not specced as Gorilla Glass? Apparently it is an aluminium frame but coated in plastic.
Plastic back too ;(
Check the specs of this phone very carefully, the 10T Pro was better in many ways and cheaper. Xiaomi 12 out soon and black Friday offers as well.
m.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=11100&idPhone2=10737 I guess it's all down to what you want and what you want to pay. Personally the 11T Pro would be fine for daily use and gaming for example codm.
