i'd say thats just a tiny bit below average if you use it pretty frequently daily. 80% is when apple replace batteries (if within warranty), and that's with around 2 years of use. as a rough rule of thumb i'd expect your battery health to be at 90% after 1year so you're not that far off.

mine is at 88% after a year and half. I am surprised it is that good tbh. Had to replace batteries in my 5 and 6 after similar periods

I have an out of contract iphone 6 locked to 02, the 02 website requires me to fill in a form then wait a week to unlock it, is there anyway to shorten this process?

It’s actually an instant thing but I think they just do it to be awkward cunts, it took me about a month with EE to do it speaking to numerous idiots, eventually got to speak to the right person and it was done there and then.

No one is gonna want a 6. They’re probably worth minus money

No mate I'm keeping it for myself, using it as a work beater phone and using my Xs max for best, 02 are just cunty about unlocking, may try ringing and moaning that sometimes works.

Had two O2 refresh phones, one of them was no bother at all but the other after I cancelled they took payment of the full contract.
They refunded fairly quickly after I made them aware but keep an eye on your account.

What’s the catch? That’s super cheap, mate of mine is paying £48 a month for similar on EE…

Ordered an XR for my daughters Xmas from WowCamera - no communication since ordering last Thursday.

Just read they’re based in HK and the number listed doesnt work.

Its legit but it's going to take ages to come. On hotukdeals people often get phones from there and its literally 3 weeks + wait. Its the trade off, cheap phone but no CS.

Sent them an email and they’re saying it’s due this Thursday via UPS, so all good.

Was going to go for this - but it’s actually and £49, not £35 - you have to claim back over months to get your cash back. Good deal if you can be arsed/wait.

I got the 256GB iphone X 80GB data + 24 months spotify for £49 PCM and only £27 upfront for the phone.

I start a new job next month and I can get vodafone advantage on that for 10 to 15% off

Its last years model but works great.

Wanted the dual camera and OLED but the Xs deals were much more expensive, plus it is slightly smaller.

Got a topper deal over black Friday. Iphone xs 64 gb – 121 upfront. Then 37 p/m for two years, includes 80gb data and unlimited calls and texts. Its on the Voda red entertainment so also includes Spotify premium. Total cost of contract is about the same as the phone would cost outright.

New iPhones clearly not doing well because there have been loads of deals already.
Saw one with cashback that actually worked out cheaper than just buying the phone with 80GB data a month Jawdropping!
The cashback did sound a ballache to claim though.
