WTF has happened to the prices of new handsets in the last few years?
I’m paying £11 a month for a sim only deal with EE as my current phone is now out of contract, that includes 4g of data + unlimited calls and texts. I never use more than 4g as I’m on wifi most of the time.
A new S8 or preorder S9 or a Note 8 (which I quite like the look of) are £58+ with a £100 upfront payment. Google pixel 2XL is the same.
((58 - 11)*24)+100 = £1228 for the handset itself, wtf is that? - EE’s margin on this stuff must be astronomical! I can buy the Pixel 2 XL for £630, and the note 8 for £870 from Carphone warehouse, so a massive saving there which is an option. But I’d rather not fork out that much is one go.
So here’s the question - I’m after a handset with a big screen and decent camera. Are there any ones that I should look at which aren’t premium brands before EE shaft me?
I honestly don’t have much of a clue anymore.
Are Huawei ones any good?
