I bought one of these before Xmas on a deal. Hunted around to get it unlocked but ended up paying €45 or thereabouts.

My current network (Eir) tried but with Covid didn't get any reply from the Huawei (normally they email them & get a reply in about a week).

Nope,its far better than a phone worth 100 euro.
128GB of storage and 4GB of Ram ,its a quality phone .
The reason its being discounted is probably due to the recently released Huawei P30 Lite New Edition which has 256GB of storage and 6GB of Ram plus a few minor differences.

if anyone bought this phone and wants to sell on the Band 4 give me a PM.


I was going to buy one and remembered it was part of this promotion.

I'm sure we can come to a fair deal .

Spent hours trying to order the phone, site very slow and picky with details. I repeated the same process a few time, it eventially work when i switched browers (chrome to Edge) but that might be fluke.

I bought a phone off the vodfone site before (about a year ago) and all was smooth, but not now.

Had a p30 lite until last week when i left it on car roof (first ever smashed phone), bought my wife one on vodafone offer in december, cost 120euro, crazy price indeed, IMO worth 250 ish

Awesome handset, awesome brand and i'm stuck with them for the forseeable future, and gladly

Now have a P30 Pro, i'll always remember hearing someone review this handset on the radio, said that if it had an apple or samsung logo on back people would be going nuts over it

I'm suprised people don't buy Huawei phones in general, the price is insane for good budget phones,not just that higher up specs like your p30 pro is ridiculously overpowered,me personally they are much better phones then Samsung and iPhone for what you pay for.

It's only when people like yourself buy a phone from Huawei and see how good they really are.

People are sheep .
Apple hardware is underpowered and overpriced but people will lap it up.

Really? I love Huawei too but my p10 will be my last unless I pick up a p30.

They no longer have android on the newer p40 and I can't face a world with Chinese versions of apps.
