How is it such a bad deal or do people just have it in for tesco mobile?
It's a top end very good phone for about 10euro more than an equivalent plan per month.
So phone works out about 240.
Still a bargain if you ask me.

240? For you maybe.

It's not a very good deal to begin with and given the headline saving of 499, is misleading and false therefore pissing off the majority.

And the plan is poop.

€30 a month on Three gets you all you can eat everything. which would more than justify the marginal difference in cost.
3 all you can eat data and texts pre pay is €20 every 28 days and you actually KEEP the €20 to spend on music, books, whatever. No calls but sure, I do that in work!

Is that price the p20 or p20 pro . I’m seeing the p20 pro at 588 pounds on amazon so I’d be raging if I missed it at 520 euros . I think the Tesco deal OP posted is the pro so seems like a good deal if you have good coverage in your area .

2 things go against you here,

A. you need to have 547 euro spare to buy the phone outright.

B. if you go with tesco, you dont have the freedom to change provider. You have a 14 day cooling off period so if you find it bad service withing those 2 weeks, you can change.

Personally I see the tesco deal a better option
