Here's a great price for the Nokia Lumia 640, which is the cheapest deal around by a tenner. The battery life may not be ideal, but overall the Lumia 640 is one of the better WinPhones out there. It's also one of the first devices that will be updated to Windows Phone 10 when it releases later this year, should you want to be an early adopter of the upcoming OS. Thanks to Rbnserrate @ HUKD!
Here's a great deal for those of you in need of some mobile internet. For £30 you get 6GB of data that will last up to 3 months. The Osprey is 4G capable and can connect up to 10 devices at once. Once the data is used or expired you can top up on a PAYG basis or with EE's data plans, but you can also unlock the device to be used on other networks. Unlock codes can be found for as little as 99p on eBay. Thanks to professorEX @ HUKD!
Another week, another offer from 7DayShop for some cheap expanded memory for your smartphone. This current deal sees the listing for this 32GB microSD card undercut the next best offers by a couple of pounds. With it being a Class 10 card you can expect great read and write speeds, making this listing a worthwhile suggestion for those of you looking for a bit more space for photos and the like. Thanks to Tommytse22 @ HUKD!
Once again Amazon have dropped the price for their Fire Phone to below the £100 mark. With the RRP being significantly higher than that, there's a huge saving to be made with this deal. That said, this really is only for dedicated Amazon shoppers. While the 24/7 customers support apps and easy access to Amazon's various online shops are impressive, the FireOS isn't the most intuitive for newcomers.
At the end of the day, the price drop of this deal makes it a much more agreeable purchase, but at this point there are other handsets out there with better overall performance. One final note - O2 are reportedly not allowing users to unlock their phones from the network, so do bear that in mind before buying. Thanks to mobilenerd @ HUKD!
If you've been after a new case for your smartphone this voucher code might be of interest. Case-Mate have issued a 30% off code that works on all items on their store. Just put in the code CMFRIENDS15 at the checkout to get the reduction. With different types of cases and screen protectors available and most modern smartphones catered for - including the recently-released LG G4 - it might be worth a look, as there is free delivery on everything and prices starting as low as £8 without the code. Head over to the Case-Mate website to see their available items. Thanks to rubytuesday0203 @ HUKD!
Here's a another repeat deal from Tesco that makes its return thanks to a new voucher code. Just input the code 'TDX-HGMR' at the checkout screen and it knocks the price down by a tenner, making it the cheapest deal for both items by £40. The Lumia 530 isn't the best WinPhone on the market, but the Linx 7 is a fine piece of kit for its size and price point. There's a year's subscription of Office 365 thrown in as well if you're looking to do some work on the go. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
By using Tesco's latest voucher code TDX-KNWT at the checkout, you can save around £15 compared to the next cheapest deal elsewhere. The circular screen makes it stand out compared to its competition, but sense of style is overshadowed by a slower processor and poor battery life. That said, it's definitely one of the more affordable smartwatches out there if you're after your own a companion device. Be sure to check out the Motorola Moto 360 review on Wearable for more info. Thanks to pavel76 @ HUKD!
Once again Amazon are giving away a collection of apps absolutely free, as long as you go through their own Appstore. Great games such as Telltale Games' Game of Thrones and the downright scary Five Nights at Freddies 3 are there, alongside a range of educational and utility software such as AVG AntiVirus PRO Android Security. Head over to the full list of free items to see what's available. Thanks to Dave @ HUKD!
CDKeys may usually feature deals for the latest games (which are regularly highlighted over on Dealspwn) but here's a listing that's more relevant to our interests here on Mobot. For under £20 you can get a £25 gift card for iTunes if you get hold of the 5%-off code via Facebook. You'll save yourself £6 overall, which is a fine saving to put towards filling up your Apple product with more music, films and Apps. Thanks to BuzzDuraband @ HUKD!
Yet another MVNO will be launching in the UK this year, but this one aims to do things a little differently. FreedomPop, a US-based network provider that offers free minutes, texts, and data to its customers, will be bringing its services to the UK this summer. Once again it's Three that will be hosting the MVNO, although a second network will reportedly be joining the venture and announced in the near future.
This one's more of a heads-up for those who have yet to see it, but video-editing app Video in Video is currently free on the iTunes App Store. Compatible with the latest iPhones and iPads, Video in Video allows you to create "picture in picture" videos with your own content. A Pro version upgrade is available with more features if you want more options in how you edit your videos, but as a free app it does the job it sets out to do. Thanks to BeaSTxUK on HUKD for the find!
In a bid to help out those who forget when apps are releasing, Google have begun rolling out a new pre-register feature for the apps on the Google Play store. The feature allows customers to receive a push notification once the app is available to buy without committing to buying it (as you would with a pre-order.)
The first app to take advantage of the pre-register service will be Terminator Genisys: Revolution, a third-person action game that will tie-in with the upcoming film. As of now there are no other apps that are using the feature, but we expect it will roll out to other future releases in the coming months.
After a few weeks of waiting, we now know that the iD Network - the MNVO from Carphone Warehouse - will launch tomorrow. The updated iD Network website now includes details on services such as the 'Shockproof' cap, which stops extra charges from happening (although it costs £5 to add), and its extensive free-roaming service, which we now know covers 22 countries worldwide. It beats Three - whose network they will be piggy-backing off in the UK - and it's 'Feel At Home' scheme their own game.
We also now have details on their "competitive" 24-month contracts, which range from £7.50 a month for 150 mins, 5000 texts and 250MB data with a Microsoft Lumia 535, Nokia Lumia 635, or Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini included, to £19.50 a month for 600 mins, 5000 texts, 500MB data with a HTC One Mini 2. Sim-Only contracts - which are 1-month recurring - appear to be much better. Data Only sims start from just £5, and its best value contract offers unlimited mins, texts and data for £20 a month. All contracts come with 4G as standard.
You can check out all of the contracts and phones on offer - including a limited edition deal for 12-month contract for a Samsung Galaxy A3 with 300 mins, 5000 texts and 1 GB data for £19.50 a month - by heading over to the iD Network Store.
The words "about damn time" come to mind, here.
Transport for London has announced that it has teamed up with Virgin Media to bring free Wi-Fi to 150 stations in ticket halls, corridors and even on the platforms. Customers of the following networks will be able to take advantage of the new service:
It is currently unknown if MVNOs will be able to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, but we'll update this post as soon we know. For more information, including which 150 stations have the free Wi-Fi, head over to the TfL website.
Our second microSD deal of the morning isn't quite as good as it was yesterday, as MyMemory have knocked up the price by a few pounds. However, by using their 20%-off voucher code NUTS20 it brings their listing for the Lexar 64GB microSD card to cheapest price available. A great bargain if you need a serious memory upgrade, but do note that this doesn't come with an adapter. Thanks to ahenners @ HUKD!
We've got a few deal highlights for those looking for expanded memory this morning, and the first one is for a 32GB Class 10 card from Samsung for around a tenner. Those of you with Amazon Prime will be able to get it for under a tenner, otherwise the price shoots up to over £13. Thankfully, MobyMemory have the next best price for just 50p more if you aren't signed up to the Amazon service. Thanks to SixtyFive @ HUKD!
If you're a sports fanatic who is looking for a smart watch to help track your activities, this deal from Amazon is definitely worth considering. While it isn't the lowest price we've seen for the VivoActive smart watch, this listing beats the next best price by around a tenner. An extensive array of tracking apps and notification settings for social media are backed up by an impressive battery life, but its aesthetic design isn't the most stylish out there. You can learn more by reading the Garmin VivoActive review on Wareable. Thanks to JimmyKFace @ HUKD!
Here's yet another MVNO deal, this time from Mobile from Sainsbury's who piggyback on the Vodafone network. At the moment they are halving their three monthly contracts plans for the first 3 months of use. The plans on offer are:
- 300 mins / 5000 texts / 500MB data for £4 a month
- 500 mins / 5000 texts / 1GB data for £5 a month
- 800 mins / 5000 texts / 2GB data for £6 a month
After the first 3 months, the charges double, but the recurring monthly charge means you can cancel or switch to a different plan before that month is up. That makes it ideal for those who don't want to tied down to a network or are just looking for the best deal. Head over to the Mobile from Sainsbury's website for more details. Thanks to nicster08 @ HUKD!
With a recent "as new" deal now out of stock, this listing from Amazon is the best price for an unlocked LG G3. The Android-powered phone boasts an improved screen to match its size, and a revamped interface that is easier to use, although the casing reportedly feels a bit cheaper than previous models. Still, it’s a great deal for the price if you’re after a dependable Android handset, and is ready to be upgraded to 5.0 Lollipop. Thanks to eyebaws @ HUKD!
Here's a great listing if you're looking for a cheap PAYG sim or want a lost cost way of testing out the EE network. for just 99p (including delivery) you can get a PAYG multi-sim pack which includes £5 of credit. Putting the sim card in your phone will activate it and deduct £1 of that credit to activate the new Talk & Text pack, which provides 25 mins and 50 texts for 7 days. After that, the package is automatically renewed for the same fee, although it is possible to cancel the package if you would prefer to use the standard PAYG rates. Thanks to Adilafridi40 @ HUKD!
