Galaxy Note Edge not coming to the UK

We have also heard this morning that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will not be coming to the UK at launch. However, we will be doing our best to source non-UK stock for those customers that are interested in ordering one. More information available in this blog post.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will not be available in the UK at launch

2[1]Whilst we await official confirmation from Samsung, we have heard from distribution channels that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will not be available in the UK at launch.

What does this mean for UK customers interested in the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge? 

When the Note Edge launches, there will not be UK stock available. It will not be available in the majority of European countries.

For those customers that are interested in purchasing the Note Edge, we will look to source non-UK stock. This means that, if possible, we will purchase the stock intended for one of the countries where the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is due to launch.

What about pricing?

At the moment we await confirmation on pricing. We currently have the Note Edge available to pre-order, although the price is not confirmed. If you place an order at this time, your card will not be charged. Once we have confirmed the price we will contact pre-order customers to confirm whether or not they would like to proceed with the order.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active – £226 cheaper 1 year on

An offshoot of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Active launched with a 5″ full HD display, 8 megapixel rear camera, microSD, and much more, but most importantly at the time an IP67 rating to make it a bit more friendly for those who used their devices in the rain or wet conditions.

At the time of launch it was selling just shy of £500, £486 to be precise.

Just over a year on, you can now obtain the same handset for £260 inclusive of VAT, that is £226 cheaper than at time of launch.

Although it may be 12 months old the S4 Active still has a reasonable specification with key features including:

  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 1.9 GHz quad core processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage (approx 11.25 user accessible)

Clove’s top 10 smartphones of August 2014

Where has the time gone? It is the middle of summer here in the UK and everyone is using their photos to snap pictures of beaches, planes, far flung destinations and family members enjoying themselves.

August tends to be a quiet month in the mobile industry as people wind down after a busy few months and prepare for the run up to that big day in December….(yes we are already thinking about this).

Although things may be calming down that has not stopped a battle emerging for a space in the top 10 smartphones this month.

We have a new addition in the form of the Nokia Lumia 930 and a few movements amongst other strong contenders.

So after a bit of discussion, we have come up with the list below.

Please do remember that this list is our top 10 based on our preferences, feelings, sales and customer feedback.  Others may have a very different opinion on what makes their top 10.

If you have any questions then contact us on sales@clove.co.uk or by phoning +441202552936 and we will happily help.

 

Motorola Moto E Front_small10. Motorola Moto E

A less featured Moto G but below with £100 price point the Moto E brings great value performance and features to the mass market. Dual core processor, 5 megapixel camera and 3G connectivity.

It might not be all that inspiring in terms of design but it offers what the majority of us will need for communicating on the go and there are interchangeable covers for that added personalisation.

Like the Moto G the E offers all round value but does away with the added power and features that not everyone needs.  As an upgrade from a feature-phone this is a good example of a first smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini arriving in stock tomorrow

SM-G800H_GS5 mini_WhiteSamsung are well known for their ‘mini’ phones.  We have had the S3 Mini and the S4 Mini.

It is only right then, that a couple of months after the Samsung Galaxy S5 came on the market that the S5 Mini should make an appearance.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 6th August, we will be receiving the first stocks of the S5 Mini.

Key features and reasons to consider this phone include:

  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 1.4 GHz quad-core processor
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • 4.5″ Super AMOLED 720 x 1080 screen
  • 8 MP camera with autofocus, flash, HDR & panorama
  • 2.1 MP front facing camera
  • Fingerprint scanner for locking & authorisation
  • Ultra Power Saving Mode
  • Private / Kids Mode
  • IP 67 rated (water & dust resistant)
  • 2,100 mAh removable battery
  • 131.1 x 64.8 x 9.1mm
  • 120 grams

Not a bad specification list there.  Although this is not a flagship phone, it does have a lot to offer those who want a solid performing device, without the bulk of the larger phones and of course quite such a high price tag.

From tomorrow we will have the Black coloured EU variant of the S5 Mini in stock.

The EU variant is exactly the same specification, but has been brought in from central Europe.  The 2 pin EU mains adapter has been replaced with a 3 pin UK adapter and the warranty is still valid in the UK.

Other colour options and UK spec units will be following very soon.
