My £5 TCB confirmed. I thought it would be a higher amount. Did anyone use TCB and tracked at a higher amount?
I'd still say rubbish. As you are buying the phone outright and the sim card is on a rolling contract. There is no contract for the phone as you own it as soon as you pay for it, unlike a normal contract where the cost of the phone is bundled in with the monthly cost. I would have bought two of them, but i am currently out of the country and have no way of phoning them. :( Hoping the offer is still there in January.
Sadly it looks like we will have to pay for a second month. Still not a bad deal but it is annoying
Sorry you are having problems cancelling your partners contract.Worst case scenario is paying £13 for 1 month. £82 is still a really good price for the phone. (y)
That's what we did with my contract - no problem first time. My partners contract we've tried 6 or 7 times and still no luck
See below link - What is Wi–Fi calling? https://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/guides/what-is-wi-fi-calling/
you can't make calls/texts via wifi if you have a carrier signal problem at no extra charge. The phone has to support it and the carrier.
What does this mean?
Like I say, their problem. Cancel the dd and forget about it !
I like the phone. I've come from the Moto G 4g so it's a step up for me. Just need a nano SIM now lol. I would have used the contract for my Mum but she has no signal with Vodafone in her village so a bit peed off with their attitude. Lx
for anyone reading this for information in the future, always go for O2 over Vodafone. They accept cancels within 14day cool down period like they should. Had two phones from CPW with £100 off with a 12m O2 sim and then cancelled the sim immediately. Happy days.
Just an update my chip was cancelled. I just called again no need for an excuse they are already aware of the CPW deal so just say that you only need the phone so your cancelling within the 14 day cooling period.
They have upped the price - now it's 209 plus the vodafone 15.5.
Being able to cancel SIM within cooling period is a consumer right. There should not be luck and patience needed here. Vodafone is simply peddling lies on CS and asking people to go to CPW instead while the actual SIM only contract is with Vodafone. This a non deal as "luck" or "lottery" is needed for it to work.
For anyone struggling to get Vodafone to cancel I'd suggest using their online chat or simply hanging up to try another advisor. It's a bit of a lottery but trying at different times may help. If you do so within the first 14 days you should be able to get avoid being charged the £15.50 fee (which is only chargeable after 1 month with Vodafone and not at point of sale). Patience and persistence needed.
Could you tell my wife that, she never believes that I'm right! :D
Ok so this escalated quickly, single sim version on VERY has gone up in price to £169.99 and the dual sim version on Amazon has gone up to £179.99. Single sim in blue for £149.95 at Argos: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7429055?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158%7Cacid:532-198-3455%7Ccid:200290250%7Cagid:12504931010%7Ctid:aud-144400486596:pla-445961893389%7Ccrid:66128553650%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:4592743172960121939%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:1o1%7Cmt:%7Cloc:1006912&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwteBgcHK3AIVDrftCh0q2Ad8EAQYASABEgJTOvD_BwE single sim in blue or gold at CPW for £159: https://www.carphonewarehouse.com/home/products/motorola/g6-play.html#!colour=gold&capacity=32GB&dealType=sf Going to expire this post now
That's very odd. I just clicked on the link you provided and it's showing up as £169.99 on Very! No mention of dual SIM in their description though. Had a very quick look at this model on Currys, CPW and Argos sites too... they're all selling the gold version ( different prices) but none mention it as being the dual SIM version....so, I think your original description " Amazon exclusive" may be correct ( for the dual SIM version only though). A good price for a solid, relatively bloatware free, dual SIM Android smartphone with a jumbo battery to boot!!
Price gone up for me too, must have been a lightning deal. Although it didn’t show up as a lightning deal
Got one (from Argos), can confirm. The update situation is appalling (surprise surprise, the usual problem with Android unless you get Google's own handsets) but it's an otherwise impressive little device for the money. Definitely makes you question whether it's really worth spending 4-10x as much on flagships. Plus with being cheap you don't worry yourself silly about breaking or scratching it etc.
Yes, they do.
Don't they take a MicroSD card? Same price at Argos. Tempted as a second phone. Just about to become 2 generations old though if you count the G5S...
Potentially only £94 from GiffGaff https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/motorola-moto-g5-129-giffgaff-104-with-cashback-2904735
I'd be genuinely tempted by this if it wasn't for the 16gb. I'm on that now and getting constant warnings that I'm reaching the limit, so much so I've been deleting apps regularly.
The only inherent benefit higher MP - beyond a certain minimum - has is that you can clip the photo more or digital zoom more (which is basically the same thing) without pixellation. In fact 12mp can allow a bigger pixel size which can produce better quality pictures in conditions such as lower light if done well. You'll see that a lot of flagship phones have pixel counts around 12mp with the exception only of Sony really.
The Moto G5S has a 16MP camera and the Moto X4 has 12MP. I see it being said that the X4 is better, does the higher MP count not always mean a better camera? I'm clueless about this stuff and getting lost in phone specs :(
Actually, you're right - the 4X has quite a nice premium finish having seen it up close now. It's a good looking phone.
Just picked up the Moto X4 from Carphone Warehouse at lunchtime. It may be no flagship phone but for the price it is excellent value and much better than my old X Play. The phone immediately updated to Android Oreo
Kefan77 as you can see makes more than 0 sense and you got your reply (y)
Dude, calm down. I'm just pointing out there's great spec phones, sim free, direct from the Motorola UK site. I never said your deal was ****. People regularly post alternative deals as suggestions, I'm just doing the same. Relax, mate.
That's something that he needs to reply to you on Brother. That doesn't negate the fact that your comment didn't make sense hence the reason I called you out on it as accuracy is important for both me and other readers. I'm sure you'll agree?
why is he then mentioning moto E? how is that relevant? I don't comment around in iphone X deals how i got SE for 200...
Sorry Bro but if you read Shinobei comment he is referring to the E4. Maybe he is mentioning it as an alternative value for money phone in the range. Your comment is redundant buddy (y)
Has anyone managed to get a memory card to work in the G5? I have an English G5, and bought a Sandisk 128Gb class 10 A1 Card. I have formatted it in the phone and it's reported as corrupt. It's a common problem on the G5 and the G5S. I'm hoping the Oreo update due soon will fix it. I've looked all over different forums for an answer, but have been unable to find one so far! Can anyone help?
Aren't these just the regular prices?
Yep UK charger. band 20? Means nothing to me soz!?
I missed out on this.. but it's the same price (more or less) at CCL: https://www.cclonline.com/product/240844/PA7V0009GB/Mobile-Phones/Motorola-Moto-G5S-Smart-Phone-Lunar-Grey-/MOB0054/
It appears to be the single SIM version. One slot for the nano SIM and one for micro SD card in the SIM tray. Also found this bit of information from Motorola website - Xt1804 from Moto direct is dual SIM Xt1803 from John Lewis (and others) is single SIM in UK.
Hello @Hiptobesquare , G5S Plus comes with dual sim and dedicated sd card slot. Is this the one on offer? Thank you. Btw the gray is now OOS
G5s has a single camera. G5s plus has dual cameras.
I can confirm it's a deal for the Moto G5S Plus, I received mine a couple of days ago.
This or p10 lite?
At the moment, amazon.it are selling these for €219. Even with the Euro transaction fee on a credit card, it should come in at under £200. https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B0744VXT1B/ I bought a G5S plus for €195 from Amazon.it on this deal https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/motorola-g5s-plus-sim-free-deal-of-the-day-187-amazon-italy-2858748
Great phone. Got this last September on Amazon pre-order for £200.82. Looks good, runs well and feels premium. This smartphone really does hit the sweet spot in terms of price, quality and specification. Android Oreo update due soon. You can spend a lot more on a phone, but in terms of pound for pound value, you get diminishing returns.
It was in stock earlier. I luckily got an order in for the gold version.
What's so difficult to understand here?? G5S and G5S Plus,simple. This G5S phone is actually surprisingly fast & smooth,a decent performer when I tried one as is the camera too. Camera on this is better than the G5S Plus. Using the same SD430 CPU as Nokia 6 i found the Motorola much smoother
Only seems a few months since the G5 was released! They really need to slow down, they're already diluting/confusing their product line enough as it is (skeptical)
Just added the G5s to the basket and applied the code, still works. Not expired (the G5S Plus is oos though). If anyone still wants to use this it seems to be ok....
They will all start going out of stock and/or being sold off cheaply once the G6 series is released (about 5-6 weeks from launch).
indeed, you also cant swap the sim on the go either because you need a little pokey thing to poke the sim tray out, I guess you could attach it to your keys, but you shouldn't have to really, just a badly thought out design IMO.
This is specific to the g5.
moto g v1 .. i still have it screen never broke it still going strong.. dropped it many a time
Rubbish phone. Screen breaks very easily. Check on line and see how many people moan about it, and then it costs about £80 to replace it.
new Moto G6 on the way next month
You can get if from Vodafone. £99 + 10 top up. You'll probably have to pay some £ to unlock. https://shop.vodafone.co.uk/shop/pay-as-you-go/huawei-p8-lite-2017-payg/sku93495
The CPW deal has now been pulled so no longer a cheap buy...
I've got my phone now and I'm very happy with it so far. The spigen case is a must as it's thin and is quite slippy. I would definitely recommend the p10 lite if you can get a good deal on it. I don't have any concerns about it breaking.
Hahaha! I do seem to drop my phone with alarming regularity! I think the fact that it survived so many times made me a bit complacent. I might be better off looking at another option then. XD Incidentally, got a chance to play with a P10 lite over the weekend. Owner was happy with it but had cracked the back after a drop. He now has the Spigen case and it looks suitably protected.
I know what you mean, I'm a fan of the Moto phones of the past but I've ordered the P10 lite. I'll be buying a strong case for it... A lot of people are very careless and blame phones for breaking rather than themselves. If you regularly drop your phone curved glass isn't for you! I'll let you know how I get on.
For me it's that extra GB of RAM in the p10 lite. If you have around 250, that's why I also mentioned a second hand one plus 3 as it has 6GB RAM which makes it a total beast.
Yeah heard good things about JL on here to be honest. Never thought to try there for mobiles. It was purchased off Motorola direct so all online, strongly worded emails etc. Not dropped the week and a half I had it. Possibly during transit but who knows
Cubot do similar decent phones but do not offer anything exciting
I've always been a fan of the Moto range (currently using Moto G5 Plus). Similar priced phone for comparison would be Huawei Honor 7X https://store.hihonor.com/uk/item/209699837/index. Anyone had an experience of the 7X yet? ALthough £30 more it comes with the Honor Band 3 free of charge which you could probably sell for £30.
Did you do it online or in-store? Should've bought through JL who accept returns a lot more simple. Weird the phone developed dead pixels, that almost never happens unless it is dropped
Incredible front and rear cameras both with flash, insanely quick operation, massive screen, finger print sensor, gorilla glass, full metal body with no flex, dual SIM, expandable memory, bright, HD, crystal clear phone to name a few. I don't know why this deal is getting so much heat when JL had it same price with 2 year warranty and free high quality headphones though. I challenge you to find a better phone for a better price which doesn't come from Gearworst or some other China website which gives it no useable warranty.
Heated added bcos of UK seller, I always prefer them. But FYI dual sim version is available slightly cheaper in EglobalG5
(moto G5) i went into store today the girl sold me the phone, then I had to pop a few doors down to pick up a nano sim in a vodaphone store (which is my network that I'm on) :) i got the grey,
Only Grey in stock currently.
got this phone mid december as lost my old one. paid 250 for it and its well worth that price. this is an absolute bargain
Paid #260 from JL couple weeks ago and they refunded me £20 via price match, epic customer service and excellent phone
There’s £15 off with the Which offer.. https://www.appliancesdirect.co.uk/content/which-promotion?
Think price has gone up to £239 can't see it for £225
£225 at Appliances Direct without phones.
I had one of these, became unusable (due to ghost touchscreen inputs) unless the brightness was turned right down to the minimum, both when on charge and when not.
Can't understand why this is getting any heat.... old phone now with widespread ghosting issues, not even the Plus version.
G4 was sent back after 6 months due to ghosting, annoying.
No ghost touches on my g4. Great phone, only changing it (after 10months) because it's too large for me, and I've got big hands! The g4 is not waterproof, the G3 was. Mine has recently in the last couple of months started to screen burn, but it's not permanent. The burn goes away completely in a few mins with either the phone screen off or just by watching a few YouTube clips.
A good price for a very good phone. My wife and I both have the G4 and never had the ghost touch issues. However mine has developed screen burn in. Apart from that, it's a really good phone for the price.
Please can we get this out there. Motorola no longer gives out fast (or any) updates for their budget Devices and very little (and slow) updates for their own flagships. These are good Devices - but please stop saying that they have fast and reliable Android updates. Thanks
Back to £229 in John Lewis (annoyed)
Oh you said from JL in your original post but thanks
just picked up one thx
£199 at Carphone Warehouse.. https://www.carphonewarehouse.com/motorola/moto-g5-plus.html#!colour=grey&capacity=32GB&dealType=sf
Yeah and they start to install apps by themself after about a year, and you can't send them back. At least that's my experience with buying a phone from banggood in the past. Now i make sure to buy from a proper retailer from the UK.
Anyone know why this deal is still here, reported as duplicate and it's allowed to stay :/ https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/moto-g5s-dual-sim-32gb-was-229-now-179-at-john-lewis-2856521
3G (Voice) works on the 2nd sim on G5S, it will show up as UMTS in the sim status. G5 was supposed to be getting a patch to enable 3G on the 2nd sim but no idea if that's still going to happen.
The new price :p
For whatever reason, the OP has chosen to send me PMs, apparently as I didn't share his devotion to JL on the other thread for this phone which appears to have been removed as it was a duplicate. Be warned. He's a bit of a Troll. (shock)
