Yes I know most phones are made in China, what I meant to say was the sellers were from China.

Hi,

 

I've been following your site for quite a while, looking to see when the Moto G5s plus will be released.

 

Its now released in India, when will it be released in the UK?

 

Kind regards

Plenty many items I am able to get from amazon.com & amazon.uk

just check if you can get this from amazon.in

https://www.amazon.in/b?ie=UTF8&node=14091988031&tag=campaign80-21

 

if yes - the good would be 4 gb ram & 64 gb internal storage

bad maybe - vat & warranty

You are lucky in India. For whatever reason that is beyond me, in UK it will have only 3GB RAM and 32GB storage :-(

Imports from non-EU countries are liable for a 20% import duty. That is a considerable chunk of money and often negates any savings, if your incoming parcel is caught by Customs.
Added to which, for UK use, on all the 4 networks, Band 20 support is needed for 4G service. In fact,O2 and its MVNOs, ONLY use band 20 for 4G.
Often phones built for other markets particularly China and other Asian countries do not use band 20, so it's often missing.

To rub some salt into your wounds, check the price

INR 16,000

which equates to £194

I was just joking mate

Motorola UK will not entertain any complaints - service or warranty

And if you are landed with a defective / damaged set .....that would be dreadful

Two amazon representatives (Via Amazon UK Help Chat; accessible from their website), have promised and confirmed that the Moto G5s Plus (Which I pre-ordered with expedited delivery) will be dispatched and delivered to my doorstep on Sunday 3rd September 2017. However, on the day nothing was delivered, nor did i Receieve any update on the item being dispatched. I have the chat transcripts to prove this, and I have no idea why Amazon has lied to me on two occasions. I was told *again*, that I Would be updated by tomorrow noon, I will post here my updates.
