All Phablet Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
same here sealed nice.
I’ve received my iPad today. It was unopened and still shrink-wrapped. Box was in mint condition (y) . Thanks again OP
Thanks for this. Didn’t realise you could get a second sim for this. Just got my 13 year old a great deal on the phone he wanted with 80gb of data... which is a crazy amount! I’d planned on hot spotting to him but means he’d have to be with us. Definitely worth me getting a second sim for my iPad.
Yes I have 20gb on my contract which I never get close to
So £5 a month just allows you to use your phone sim data on iPad - you don’t get any extra data included on the additional sim
"Shipping 24th Dec". That will probably change. I ordered a 128Gb version for GearBest on the 19th Nov when it said shipping 29th Nov. That changed to Dec 10th and now they told me won't ship till Jan 9th. (+51days) Good job I'm not in much of a hurry for it. Gearbest is good if the product is in stock but they have a reputation of letting you down on delivery times if it isn't. Their "Shipping" dates should not be considered remotely accurate.
They do, just not on the budget devices ;)
Took delivery from gearbest a few days ago no vat to pay, following tracking and having a post office postage doc on package seems to indicate bulk dispatch from HC then posted from UK warehouse. That said custom doc indicated £15:66 value. So happy bunny. Came with xiaomi warranty docs UK 12 months, much happier bunny, not so after reading French warranty 24 months, then the reading the small print confirmed Mrswitch is once again giving the correct information. The warranty is one up from useless. As only applies to xiaomi direct sales. Could explain why but would not change matters.
Apparently they move batches of products into EU and then send individual orders from within EU. When it comes to warranty, though, they are probably as unhelpful as the rest of Chinese websites. "17. Import, VAT & Customs 17.1 To simplify the process of buying internationally, eglobal central choose to handle the process of custom clearance for customers. By purchasing products through eglobal central, you authorise eglobal central to make arrangements for clearance of customs on your behalf for the products in your order.

Why no customs?
There ain't no custom Rom that will make the camera better. GCAM can make an.improvememt in certain circumstances but all round the stock camera will be better. I'm will take a look though, but I already know what he will be saying. Look at the detail at 50x zoom Look I at the sky Look at the shadows But the actual subject that your taking a picture of is not so good, colour reproduction way off, noise, yellow everywhere in lowlight. Edit: Just watched it lol. Pixel Pixel Pixel It's a pity the Pixel 3 is actually crap and the camera isn't all the US media make it out to be. Both the Pixel and iPX were nowhere in the big blind, because they didn't have someone people.what they should look at. People just picked what pleased them the most. (y)
Have you seen LinusTechTips video when he puts a different rom on it? The camera is substantially better after removing the stock ROM.
They didn't reduce the quality,. The actual lens isn't as good as the one in the Mi8 and it doesn't have OIS.
Has this expired?
In all fairness that's because the Poccophone company reduced the quality of the camera so it didn't compete with their flagships. If you flash a new ROM and install the Google camera, the camera performance is much better.
Is this a Chinese phone as it does not seem to have Play Store on.The reviews are excellent.Hot.
Safer with the RedmiNote 6. Triple camera seems a bit gimmicky
Yep support is rubbish. I had two and both developed faults within weeks. Never again.
There's an elephone in the room ;)
There is no buy option on gearbests website..,
So its not a tiny screen as finnmaccool mentions :)
What size is it ?
I bought an Elephone P8 mini last November on Amazon and had no issues with it. Still using it - actually typed that message on it.
They should only sell these in white.
My Elephone S7 was fine for first 4-5 months. After that it was a nightmare and Gearbest were useless. Paid £170 for it and they initially offered me $20 after deciding it was irreparably. Settled for £100 in the end. Never touch Elephone again
I'd steer clear. Seemed good when i received my Elephone s8, then Bluetooth started being sporadic, then it wouldn't charge past 80 percent. Their customer services didn't want to know as they don't cover uk for warranty. Luckily I bought from Amazon and they refunded it after 10 months. Good luck buying that brand from anyone else!
Paid £150 not too long a go lol, the phone is great especially with 64gb storage and 4gb ram. The CPU is the weak link but for general tasks such as google, browsing photos it's really responsive, the only downside is 1080p 60fps videos on YouTube.. the phone really doesn't like it, It stutters etc. 720p 60fps works no problem though.. went to this from an S7 Edge and honestly the only thing i miss is the camera. I never noticed the 1440p screen, AMOLED panel etc
It's on play store... Look for the icon on right...
So you think it is acceptable to have to extensively virus scan a new piece of electronic hardware as soon as it is purchased? Clearly, your definition of ‘a fantastic phone’ is different to mine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion though! :)
Is this a Chinese phone.
Absolute rubbish.This is a fantastic phone.
Amazingly, this is still available
Ok this is what they said. Not sure if i can be bothered waiting. "We are in the business of processing your order now. However, please note the Phablet is currently on back order. Although we anticipated this and have submitted a large order with the manufacturer,they have been unable to supply the goods on time leading to a delay in your order.We have urged the manufacturer to expedite delivery. We expect to ship the item between Dec 22 - Dec 30. Once we ship it we will send you an email with the delivery information. "
Ordered on 6th but not dispatched. How's anyone got on out of curiosity?
I bought with a credit card so if that happens with me I'll just get them to sort it.
Still available on this Link
Should work just fine. Worst comes to worst, a replacement plug is £9.79 on eBay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-QUICK-FAST-CHARGER-PLUG-DASH-TYPE-C-CABLE-FOR-ONEPLUS-6-5-5T-3-3T/382560709159?hash=item5912652a27:m:mtrUG5dHjj-NYKKrpwlRIRQ:rk:2:pf:0
I've ordered the 6gb/64gb version from them. Wondering if using an adaptor will prevent the speedy Oneplus Dash Charge from working? Dash Charge requires the original cable and charger to work properly.
Just heard back from Gearbest. They told me on live chat that the plug is a UK type, but I just got an email from their customer support confirming it is in fact a Chinese two pin plug with an UK plug adaptor.
Great phone @ great price. Why is this cold - is it cheaper elsewhere?
Took a gear best delivery today using standard delivery BM(post office) do the final delivery and is tracked all the way googling will explain all the tracking gobbly gook. Can confirm no vat paid. Custom duty does not apply to mobiles but vat does.
or £93 if on usd.. it fluctuates depending on demand and the depot it ships from one depot sold it for £179 the other £112 a few months back
No. It's not.
Does the battery last 2+ days? Can I charge other people phones off mine? Android 7? No. This does.
At this price, you could afford a backup :D
Why wouldnt I go for an HD screen if it makes the batteyr last 2 days? Different phones different needs, those with a lovely hi res samsung (or LG in my case) wont get half a day of use on 3600mah batteries. Its actually a nice screen, ive been commented on how bright and colourful it is compared to 'cheap' phones.
I did, shows up at 560 USD for fee free, £435 or so.
Tbf I don't own any of the ones in the op, I have a standard regular mbna, and it does the same thing.
lol no Jeez tease cheese :D Not being Mr picky but being Mr honest because deals are there to benefit majority Majority of us probably don't own cards with no foreign transaction fees
OK Mr picky... Jeez haha only kidding, shall add it now. Edit: expired, price has gone up.
(£413 With A. Fee Free ) is actually confusing Most of us don't have such card so what will be charges if you use normal UK debit or credit card . You should write those prices
I disagree. I think it is MrSwitch :p
Almost bought one but doesn't work with your cars intergrated android auto. Yet! Be aware
Decent deal ... Waiting on a stunner of a deal for mi mix 3 :D
Coming up at 439.99dollars now
No worries mate
can not see for same price of 199,99$ as advertised on their web (skeptical) (mad) (annoyed)
Will Google Pay work with this?
,oZ ,, I s :S :D ;( uy :p
Which M5 and M5 Lite please?
Well it's better than the tablet I was looking at at least, however it shows American currency when I click on it?
I've got the standard more expensive M5 10.8 and it's excellent, the Lite retains it's build quality but also supports a Active Pen.
Good on paper but very poor performance. Better spending a little more for m5 lite 10.8
Amazing price for what you get. Just amazing
I had a look at one today, prefer the look of the metal backed A2.
Posted 19th November from China. Delivered 27th November. I used UK priority mail. Might be a bit longer with it being Xmas n all.
How long did it take to arrive at your place. Where was it dispatched from? Thanks
Got mine today. A definite improvement over the Max 2. Lovely screen, good cameras and feels nicer in the hand. Marked as a $15 media player by good ol' ethical Gearbest.
Change to HK to use face unlock. Another great feature
it was £2 more on the same site yesterday. Sorry didn't realise it was £2 cheaper!!! Sign me up for the £50 import tax!
It's not a new deal, and shipping from Hong Kong, so could pay tax.
It says, "Begins In: 00:00:21:40" but is already available at this price?
You won't be seeing that any time soon
Scroll up dead zone put a link on gone up to 17
Have you a link for that please
(lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
I watched this phone for months and it never seemed to have any availability outside India. I couldn't find many reviews, but the specs seem excellent, and this is a great price. If I hadn't already picked up a Redmi 5 Pro I would be snapping this up.
