    Default Huawei Nova 5T dual sim phone

    What are your views about this phone from PB Tech : Huawei Nova 5T at $499.00

    Looking at their website, there is another Huawei Nova 5T at $698.99

    They seem to have exactly the same specs. Phoned PB Tech to find out what's the catch and I was told that they are exactly the same phone; just that they are from different 2 different suppliers!

    Does it make sense to you guys? The price difference is $200! Sounds funny, must be some catch somewhere.

    What do you folks reckon?

    If it's the same phone, why would PB Tech buy from two different suppliers with a difference of $200.00 per phone?

    If it looks cagey, it probably is. Given there are other phone suppliers in NZ, use them.

    Something doesn't quite sound right.

    Looking about, several other places sell the same phone for $499 ( JBHifi, noel leemings) While some others ( dick Smiths) want $699.

    The main differences looking at both is the Black is more expensive than the Purple (from PBTech) Some places charge more for different colours, I know SWMBO just got a new phone, ordered it on Christmas day from Dick Smiths, lot cheaper than here in NZ (arrived a week later).

    The catch? None - other than their lead up to bait advertising. They have been warned by CC previously. Stuff article here.They claim they were honest mistakes...

    Its possible the pricing may have been Christmas discounts, the previous ones I mentioned have now gone as well and are more expensive, Noel Leeming $599 ( previously 499) and dick Smiths upped to $699.

    I was wondering about that too. Or an advertised price for a future promotion, so of course when you went to the actual page you’d see the current non promo price.

    Did the more $$ came with any extra items?

    Well FWIW. I was getting a Samsung S10e for my mum with Black Friday. They did have diff ones advertised. Same prices however one came with a cover and the other one didn't.

    Yeah PBTech does have this thing. With Black Friday just before it begun .. they would have a standard pre Black Friday prices and then if you deliberately click on the Black Friday link then you get the Black Friday prices. My 2c experience.
