Deal: £225 Samsung Galaxy Express 4G Smartphone

Technically, this Samsung Galaxy Express 4G smartphone, otherwise known as the i8730, wouldn't qualify as a deal. However, I've included it here to provide with an indication of where Samsung is steaming ahead. By all accounts, the Galaxy Express is a sub-par smartphone but Samsung is able to charge a premium simply because of two features.

A chassis that resembles the Samsung Galaxy S3 and 4G functionality. Adding those two allowed it to sell the device for around twice the market price for a smartphone with this specification. eBay retailer e_cell sells it for £225 with 225 Nectar points and free delivery.

It comes with a 4.5in Super AMOLED Plus display with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, a 5-megapixel camera plus a front-facing one, 8GB onboard storage, 1GB of RAM, a 2,000mAh battery that can power the device for up to eight hours and a microSD card reader.
