Partner has this phone signal is really poor. Likely underpowered to save battery


Ooh lovely giant bezels, brings back memories. Good price for what it is if yours doesn't get the Bluetooth blues. Heated.


Please buy with caution there is a 15+ page thread on Sony's forum with the known issue of WiFi dropping with Bluetooth enabled. Sony are ignoring it. Managed to get my partner's swapped out at a Vodafone store for a Huwaei instead but had to jump through the hoops of them sending it off for repair (which obviously had no effect). They had escalated it to the area rep as it was the third they'd had back that week.


I got one of these in the Ultra version with twin sim. Was a great phone but after an update, the bluetooth and wireless stopped working so returned it and bought an iPhone X instead. Upto that point, I had no complaints tbh. It also had more onboard storage than the UK version.


You forget, from day 1 (some year's back), the Z1's-Z3's were topping the £300-£500+ mark easy right? - I recall that well, as the up to 30 Minutes, 1-3 Metre's waterproof capabilities of those Z-Range Phone's REALLY intrigued me ... (but even though there was no UK waterproof equivalent to it in the Market at the time, it was a simple case of, was I prepared to pay the best part of £500+ for it though? - no I wasn't, lol, but yes, it was good for it's time too ... ) And also remember, the £1 was also worth more of a £1 5+ year's back also, then it unfortunately is today too right? (now the £1, is worth something around 75p?) - natural disasters, semi-conductor prices going through the roof + Brexit too, etc, etc, right?. But yet, despite all that, the OP's Phone still launches at 1p shy of £160 allllll in, same way?. It may not be for everyone (me included, lol - even though I saw this very same Phone in CarPhoneWarehouse over the Weekend), but it's a good bet for somebody ... With competition from the Xiaomi's of this World, the OP's Sony Xperia probably wouldn't be worth a £200+ anymore, but a just under £160?, it's passable ... (though not for me). So it all depends on how you look at it all I guess?.

It is totally upto the person who serves you. I bought my PAYG sim last year and register that straight away.


Forgot to mention with this deal you get: 6 months Apple Music for free and 3 months BT Sport but who cares...


It makes me laugh when people vote cold for this deal when that deal: got 264* And this one which is only for students and even a bit more expensive: 252* well have to to live with that (lol) (lol) (lol)


It all depends how long you've been with them. I think it needs to be at least 6 months.


I have chatted with their customer service and ask them to upgrade my PAYG sim. They have treated me as a new customer with normal price of £17. I have also tried to access to the deal for existing cutomers. no luck .

For the money this is a great work phone. It has an enormous battery and a low power display and SoC. It's obviously not built for gamers but it's still very up-to-date with software and would make a good workhorse office phone IMO. Obviously not for everyone but I don't think it's a bad price for its intended market.


I do agree, the price will drop in next few months


Good review hahaha (lol) I'm guessing guys, by @Zorciarr review the performance isn't up to scratch.... However I'm just reading in between the lines..


8GB, 1GB, Snapdragon 212... It's a £30-£40 phone at best. It's not even as good as a Moto G3, which was £89 almost 3 years ago.

Sale on CPW PAYG phones, £5 cashback from TCB/QUIDCO possible
bollybobinson{ede583e0-1fa9-11df-4872-f20203001e3d} it appears so


I got this phone at Christmas after much research. It is excellent. Does everything it says, easy to use camera pretty good. This is a bargain price.


I bought one of these recently from CPW, it's a decent phone, camera average, but pretty good in ideal conditions. It is definitely unlcoked when bought from CPW, I'm running mine on Three without issue. Metal casing is a bonus, so it won't shatter like Samsung phones do at the slightest knock (speaking from experience). At this price, it's a bargain.




Is this definitely unlocked?

Maybe a touch overpriced but its still a great phone. Bought one for the Mrs a year ago and its still running sweet, is getting 7 hours of screen time and takes nice pictures in low lighting, (better than my One Plus 3.)


Tempted but for this price I will find something with 4gigs of ram and yes, I do need that much. Sick and tired of apps refreshing all the time on 3GB lg g4.


i could only find Honor 9 lite at £169 (with UK Warranty), and the screen 18:9 ratio is not so practical as to me 8)

o2 Airwave was sold after Telefónica bought o2 Group to McQuarie Bank in 2007 for 1.2 billion who sold it for just under £900m to Motorola in 2015. Airwave lost a lot of o2 network support over them years and the emergency services contract so it was sold at a loss due to asset/coverage depletion from the 2007 sale. o2 U.K. floats itself later this year, I’ll be buying shares as a long long term investment as when Telefónica Spain clear £10billion of it’s debt going public it’s going to eventually sell up and make another £10+ billion to half it’s current (many years) €40 billion debts which interest payments are crippling Telefónica Spain. o2 banked on a Three U.K. buyout like Ireland, leaving the EU Three UK might still be in the running to buy it like Three Ireland did with o2 Ireland - Ofcom allowed a merger of TMob & Orange to create a monopoly and BT to allow a bigger monopoly so I think post brexit Three U.K will be allowed to buy o2, given Ofcom referral to EU stopped the merger not Ofcom. Simply like EE it can force a merger/buy out to sell spectrum (Three bought EEs enforced offhive) for a another player to enter the market, short term Three cleans up and another network comes to play (the U.K. needs it with the state of o2 being the most expensive even over Voda by a long shot). I would expect Ofcom also say the Cornerstone base station partnership between o2 and Vodafone goes to the new spectrum purchaser as Three U.K. already owns 50% of EE backhaul company MBNL, so to summarise issue - new Three sims and sell 50% Cornerstone with spectrum to allow the merger, 2 years of high customer numbers for Three to become a bigger player and the new buyer gets spectrum and a 50% base station ownership access with short term income from Three. Virgin/Talk Talk with Internet backhaul are two U.K. that could clean up that spectrum/Cornerstone 50%. O2 U.K. shares long term are going to be a good investment, esp for Lifetime Stocks & Share ISAs ;) o2 throughput is probably pinged through Telefónica subsidiaries on the continent where it has its own data servers (or third party contracts) well before o2 U.K. servers - ie not direct, saves cash for them.


I think he's referring to EE being chosen to host the emergency services over O2. :)


O2 didn’t have the emergency services contract, that’s Motorola :) other than that, I agree, always found O2 to have poor signal and throughput, but that might just be where I live and work. You should always buy a handful of PAYG sims across the networks and see what works best for you at home and where you work.


You can’t compare payg to contract, nor a data bank to a rollover, compared to how poor EE payg was in comparison to other networks it’s about time thier data went up. Heat here aswell. Wonder if you still get Data Boosts with these ?


They can’t even get satellite services 100% lol (Sky Mobile runs on) o2 there’s a reason o2 lost the emergency services contract to EE, 3G and 4G coverage scrapes through its minimum licence requirements with Ofcom, Telefónica buying o2 ploughed them into massive debts and now o2 U.K. is a cash cow with minimum investment.

I have two phones. One is a pay as you go, for those that don't matter. It stays on silent, sits in my window. I check it once a day. My other phone is as proper phone.


No calls whilst abroad YIPPEE! That's what holidays used to be all about. Ppl think they are so important and need to be contactable at all times. If your away on business and have smarty youre in the wrong business- trying to save £1.25 a gig!?!


Enjoying the service, and next month is free cos of a recommendation


Any idea what happens to unused data discount if you switch to another provider - do they still give it to you as you have paid upfront? Edit : use all the data in the last month , no rebate on it, so careful if you’re on the large sim and don’t use it much .


Tried to order this on Sunday but they couldn’t take money from my bank so could not complete the order for a Sim! Rang bank and they said it was a merchant error... seems like too much effort!
