Fed up of paying over the odds getting a phone on contract, so I bit the bullet and bought one of those Chinese handsets. ( I can't say which one as I will be accused of spamming)

But 32gig internal memory

3gb ram

16 mp rear camera

8mp front camera

5.5" screen

For £130 quid  Man LOL


All coupled up with a Giffgaff sim.


Saves a fortune .

@howardjones29  That is a good deal. Just be careful buying phones from abroad as there are some dodgy companies. 


December 2013 I ordered one from China, they assured me it had been shipped, then a week later I messaged them and asked if it was in the UK yet, they told me there was a problem with my postcode and DHL were holding it, and would I like to pay £40 more for a different one. This seemed odd because surely my postcode would still be an error? 

I contacted DHL, they had no record of my phone, so they contacted the company and tracked it, they never even sent it. 

I demanded a refund, which they gave me, and then they shipped the phone at the same time. So, whoever sent it was pretty stupid as I got a free phone worth £150.

It can be good, but you need to be careful. If the phone is coming from outside the UK, if it gets spotted, it will be subject to custom and VAT.
Also, there is little or no support if the handset develops a fault.
Good luck, let us know you get on.
