4G smartphone deal: £210 Samsung Galaxy Express i8730

The Samsung Galaxy Express 4G smartphone is currently on sale on eBay for £210 with 210 Nectar points. This is a mainstream/entry level smartphone. Mainstream because of the price and entry-level because of the hardware configuration.

This is essentially a slightly souped up version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (or the Galaxy S2 Plus). It comes with a 4.5in Super AMOLED Plus display with a 400 x 840 pixel resolution, 1GB of RAM, a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, a 5-megapixel rear camera, S Beam, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 2,000mAh battery that can power the device for up to eight hours.

At this price, both the Sony Xperia V LT21i and the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE appear to be better options if you want to pay less or if you want to get way more for just a bit more money.

Still, if you couple it with the cheapest 4G ready package (currently a SIM only deal from Three worth £15 per month), it will be an great combination.
