      I’m so old that I remember when Black Friday was only known here as a Steely Dan deep cut. Sheikh Yabooti recalls it as the day he drank his first hogshead of mead to mark the end of the bubonic plague.

    Picked up rather a neat One Plus 6 ‘phone this week for £399.
    Excellent ‘phone,decent price.
    Black Friday is for morons.

      As usual this product won’t ship to Ireland.
      One Plus are only offering 15% off on their UK website.
      Ordering through the Irish one is full whack.
      Marvellous stuff.

        decent enough phone if you’re strapped for cash but let down badly by mediocre camera and truly awful battery life

          yeah camera not as good as my old Samsung but super fast recharge and great screen size and clarity

          I switched to one plus a while ago. They’re a brilliant phone. Camera issues aside, I don’t think I’d be tempted to switch back.

          Except for a htc. Maybe then. I adored my old htc.

            Wouldn’t touch anything else other than One now.
            The Dual Sim is handy for my travelling,it charges in 30 mins and has an excellent camera.

            Was tempted by the one plus last switch but stuck with samsung.

            I wonder are the majority here iOS or Android. I assumed ios but looks like thats not the case

          Can anyone recommend a phone with a good camera for indoors / night time?

          My last couple of phones had good day cameras but were crap at night and indoors. They were Sony Xperias. (I’m not interested in Apple products)

          I’m thinking of a Huawei next… good or bad?

            Google Pixel 3 for sure. Amazing camera – night mode is incredible. Check out the reviews of night mode online with pic, I have one and assumed the reviews were exaggerating. They were not. Its also on black Friday offers. €50 off – bit of a kick in the teeth to us who just brought one but great offer.

        Got one as a gift, gave it to my mother after a week. The “sad ex-pat” photo filter on the camera was funny for about five minutes and then crushingly boring. Ho-hum.

    What a disgrace he is. These so called bargains are not as good as this eejit would have you think btw. Check the prices next week and probably the same as “Eejit Friday” prices.

    r eddit beat yis to the punch here and everyone surprisingly ok with it over there.

    Nothing really wrong with this apart from a little bit of tone deafness

    Don’t get it! Whats the problem! I mean I can see how spanners can associate something that’s not being suggested so as to make a problem out of it but is that all! If so then that’s just looking for an excuse to be offended. He’s not dressed up as a Black & White Minstrel FFS. He’s black on black Friday. Get it! Black Friiiidaaay!

      A lad from Wexford selling lawnmowers blacks up his face because it’s black friday. Highlights said lawnmowers. The end.

        It was done to cause outrage, pushing buttons for attention etc. I really like the next generation but in some ways they can be very predictable, boring even.

      Yes, was done in the State, day after Thanksgiving to bring ledgers back int he black by discounting massively old stock – end of line items. Now it means 20quid off something, anything.
