Best Place To Buy A Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus, G4 & G Play: UK’s Cheapest Deals

May 26th, 2017

The fifth-generation Moto G5 is available to buy from £149 unlocked. We compare the UK’s cheapest deals for the Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus and Moto G4.

If you’re looking for an affordable mid-range smartphone, my current recommendation is to buy a handset from the Moto G family. With a solid design and fantastic specifications, the Moto G handsets are priced at just a fraction of the cost of an iPhone 7 or Galaxy S8.

Motorola’s latest-generation handsets in the Moto G family are the newly-released Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Constructed from high-grade aluminium, the new handsets have a premium design along with full-HD displays and a 64-bit octa-core processor. Of the two devices, the Moto G5 Plus is slightly better specced with a Dual Autofocus Pixel camera and a more powerful Snapdragon 617 processor. The Moto G5 Plus also benefits from a larger screen and additional storage.

For a lower-cost alternative, last year’s Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are still available to buy. They have a plastic design unlike the newer Moto G5 handsets, but you’re able to customise the look of your handset with more than 80 colour combinations. The lower-cost Moto G4 Play is also available from £120 unlocked with lower specifications.

In this article, we’ll look at the best value deals for buying a Moto G smartphone in the UK. We’ll start by looking at the best deals for an unlocked Moto G5 and Moto G4. We’ll then go on to compare the best value deals on Pay As You Go and on a Pay Monthly contract.

Unshackled’s 29 Month Plan: Lower Monthly Payments With Guaranteed 24 Month Trade-In

April 11th, 2017

Unshackled is offering a 29-month plan on the iPhone, with a guaranteed trade-in value after 24 months.

Unshackled is a UK website allowing you to buy your mobile phone and SIM card on separate agreements. Rather than having a single 24-month contract for both your handset and airtime, the website instead makes it easy for you to buy an unbundled deal. Here, you’ll have a separate agreement for your handset and airtime, allowing you to save money overall. You can also change your handset independently from your mobile network and tariff.

Unshackled’s latest innovation is something called the “29 month plan”, which works in a very similar way to the “personal contract plans” often used when buying a new car. The 29 month plan gives lower monthly payments, and promises a guaranteed trade-in value after 24 months (subject to fair wear and tear). Customers can take advantage of this to trade-in their iPhone for a newer model after 24 months. Alternatively, you can continue paying for a further 5 months if you’d like to keep the handset.
