    The 21st century of tech and the smartphones, power packed features with amazing build quality and unique design, what device will you pick if you are getting it for free?
    Pick only one and the reason behind it! :D :D

    I can't make a choice but I'd rule out the Xiaomi Mi 5 because it's not projected to have a card slot. Can't say I'm really pleased with the G5's accessory options and the S7 locks you to a carrier once you put in the SIM card. But Okay it's for free so I'd take the G5 as long as they included the Hi-Fi module with it for free. I use my phone more for entertainment than phone calls.

    I'd take the s7... Then sell it, buy any of the other devices you've listed (or an honor 5x) and pocket the extra cash
     
    tube517 and LV426 like this.

    Honestly, I didn't research the Mi5 that well. I prefer an sd card to on-board storage though. I'd rather not re-rip all my CD's every time I get a new computer/phone.

    Depends... Personally an honor 5x plus £400 or even.. $400 seems like an much better option than the s7.

    Yes the s7 is a better phone.. But it's not that much better.

    But hey if it makes you feel better after you send me the s7 I'll buy a oneplus 2 instead...

    Well if either of those companies made a proper commitment to the UK market then I'd consider them.... Until then no

    Part of the hidden cost in any device includes support, for hardware software and users. Now to take it back to your original question... Samsung and LG have all of these (at least for the first two years of devices lifespan) and Honor do but Xiamoi don't...

    For example I've just tried to view the user manual for the note 3 from the UK site... The 'manual' is a one page pdf with a note and qr code on it and a link to the global site! Where the same pdf exists....

    So clearly they aren't interested in me as a customer
