Default Samsung Galaxy J5 167 v 240

I fancy a Galaxy J5 as recommended by ComputerActive at 205 (Amazon).

It's 240 at Tesco yet just 167 here: https://www.venturedirect.co.uk/prod...SABEgJn9PD_BwE

I've checked the spec and it seems to be the same phone (not last years model), so why the big price difference?

Is the place selling at 167 a reputable company? Would I be better of paying 205 at Amazon or Giffgaff?

Price is for unlocked and sim free, I have a Giffgaff SIM already in use

Only just noticed this post I know this will now be too late but Trust Pilot is usually better than taking lucky dip on a forum member having used a specific supplier.

You need a good cross section like in the Trust Pilot reviews, a couple seem OKish but the majority are stay well clear. You may be one of the lucky few but the odds are on you being among the many unhappy losers. When you see a price so low it is often because it needs to be in order to make people throw caution to the wind and take a punt.

Note the TP general rating at the top of the page is only 1 Star and Bad.

Thumbs up Re: Samsung Galaxy J5 167 v 240

After a bit of research I decided to stick with what I know and trust. Got my J5 from Giffgaff. 219 and I'm over the moon with it after two weeks.
