Huawei P20 Pro Free on Tesco Mobile @ €30pm

If you're in the market for a new phone with decent specs and battery life this might be a good option.

Link to deal page here.

€30pm x 24months = €720

€720 - €430 (Outright Amazon) = €290

€290 / 24months = €12.08pm

Therefore comparable price to buying outright and going with a GoMo sim.

Cons:
No headphone jack
No stabilisation in 4K video (1080p has stabilisation)
No SD slot (surely 128GB is enough for a phone?)
Plan is only 500/500/15GB : call/text/data

EDIT: iPhone 8 also on offer for €99 upfront. May be of interest to some.

I am on that deal (paid €250 for the phone) I can not wait to be out of contract. Tesco are cheap but I would suggest they are not good value.

Bad speeds? No upgrade options?

Can you expand on this? What issues have you had with tescomobile? I'm with them and had very little issues.

bad speeds,
poor coverage
My daughter who is also on Tesco Mobile, when I ring her I always have to ring twice, first time the call fails but the second time it rings (always, mad I know, but the thoughts of getting on to support about this is too much)
I had to turn off 4g to get any data coverage where I live (based on advice from Tesco support)
They do not let you set a data limit to your out of bundle exposure. if you go over the contact data limits (I had a €170 bill thanks to that, they said they send a text but I didn't receive one)
My discussions in relation to contract terms and conditions that contradict each other were pointless. They will only interpret their meaning where the conflict is very apparent
Escalation of issues via support to Team Lead/Manager "I will ring you back in relation to this " zero response, subsequent follow up "ok I will definately ring you back tomorrow at 3pm" zero response

Personally counting down the days to the end of my contract. Cheap network but poor value. I was previously with Eir/Meteor and have a second phone with Vodafone - Zero issues with those networks

The above is a summary of my issues
