    FOR SALE: Unlocked Huawei P20 Pro. Used since May, but with screen protector and case so in immaculate condition. Boxed with the charger, headphones, etc.

    Selling because I got a decent work phone instead.

    Full disclosure: I tested this phone as part of an "Insiders" campaign. Details are here. Long story short: I paid a deposit, tested the phone, and at the end of a 5 week period I had the option to either keep it and lose my deposit, or send it back and get a refund. I chose option A. I can document all of this if necessary. Also comes with a letter from Huawei which stands in place of a sales receipt for warranty purposes (attached).

    EDIT: to clarify, as of 31st August 2018, this is still available.

    Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
    Payment method: BT
    Location: London
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Please correct me if I’m wrong but, does that mean you only paid £399 for it?

    Yes and no. I also had to test it and write reviews. So, in essence, I got a discount for this work.

    Insiders is worth checking out. Haven't seen anything as cool as the P20 Pro on there though.

    Appreciate the offer, but regardless of what I paid for it, it's worth more than that.

    Would you post first due to your lack of feedback

    I'm reluctant to do that because, to be totally honest, I am not sure what recourse I would have if something went wrong (not being very familiar with the forum!)

    I am, however, happy to carry out further, reasonable verification that you request.

    For what it's worth, I did have a friend who is an active member list a phone on my behalf a few years back. I can dig out the post if necessary.

    OK, it's fairly standard practice for members with no feedback on higher value items. I'm a regulated health professional so my details are easily varified and my feedback here should speak for itself. I'd consider and would pay upon receipt and varification that everything is as you've specified

    Let me know your thoughts

    I totally understand your concern, and I do note your overwhelmingly positive feedback, but I’m reluctant to consider it purely because I can’t find anything from avforums recommending that the item be posted first. There’s a list of precautions here which does not include it as an option.

    I’m an insurance professional, so I’m pretty risk averse. I’m happy to take a call at work from you tomorrow and will take it straight to the post office on payment.

    Also - you didn’t mention what price you are asking me to consider.

    I hadn't put a price as there was no point negotiating if this was going to be a sticking point. Thanks anyway

    Fair enough. Let me know if you change your mind.

    As I say, I'm happy to jump through hoops for you to verify my identity, but would rather take my chances with another buyer (or, indeed, another platform) than post without payment.

    OK you're unlikely to shift a high value item here without sending first especially with 0 feedback. I'd consider a small deposit with the balance on delivery but couldn't risk the full amount. I'd happily provide my clinic details for varification should you wish to check me out (this would be sent via pm).

    You are also correct that there is nothing in the rules that says you have to send first, just fairly normal with established traders

    Just an FYI - I'm that member gtm is talking about, and can fully vouch for him, if it helps at all here. Having held the phone in question a short while ago to compare with my own mate 10pro, I can say this is a very genuine post from a very genuine seller.

    Hi,

    Can you confirm when you say "immaculate" exactly what you mean as I would interpret it as not 1 mark on it at all as if brand new ?

    Was the phone originally sim free? And can you confirm that the warranty is transferable?

    Pending all the above would like to offer you £450 delivered?

    I've looked at it under strong light and there is barely a discernible mark on the screen through the naked eye. One very, very faint scratch about 2mm long, but I really cannot stress how faint it is. I take very good care of my phones. I've taken the screen protector off now since it wasn't the best, but it did the job.

    Warranty wise, there is nothing on the Huawei website which suggests that it only applies to the original buyer.

    The phone has always been SIM free.

    With the offer: I notice you originally offered £520 but then edited your post to offer £450. I'll counter with £560.

    Hi mate,
    Thank you for the reply.
    Yes i did change my offer. I should have looked further before posting as It's only £600 brand new from laptops direct. Due to this I lowered my offer as i think 25% discount seemed about right for a 3 month old phone. At £560 i may aswell stump up the extra £40 to get a new one

    With respect London is a big place, I'm only asking as your friend that vouched for you is listed as Reading and I'm down that way at the weekend if you were somewhere near

    Right you are! I should have said that I'd travel within London to exchange if necessary.

    Unfortunately, I'm in South East London, so not a short hop to Reading - nor can I pass it to hiphopopotamus since he's from Reading but now lives in London too.

    OK here's what I'll offer, £500 total. This will consist of a £100 deposit with the remainder paid on inspection, if it isn't what you say it is (have no reason to doubt its not) then I will return it to you at my expense.

    Unless you're down in East Kent and we can do it in person

    No plans to visit East Kent at the moment I'm afraid!

    I appreciate the offer, but it appears that hiphopopotamus' celebrity endorsement hasn't done me much good!

    If I am totally honest, I am just not comfortable with shouldering the bulk of the risk for the price you've offered. I did think this may become an issue when I listed it, since I do have a vague understanding of how avforums is a tight knit, heavily feedback based community. I guess I was optimistic that I'd find a willing buyer by offering an abundance of verification methods.

    No hard feelings anyway - I do appreciate your situation and would probably do the same if I was in the same position.

    If you're still interested, I could go to £520.

    If I had dealt with your friend before I'd be prepared to move a bit more. I've relented a little and am offering you something upfront at least so I'm showing a degree of trust.
    If you want to verify my details I'm happy to PM them to you. Ideally I'd like to get this wound up ASAP as I'm away on Sunday for 2 weeks and I'd like to take it with me if possible?

    Hi,

    thank you for the offer but at £520 i still feel its a bit too high when BNIB is available at £600. (also the £600 comes with free £149 wireless headphones)

    My offer of £450 stands and happy to pay this amount upfront if accepted.

    Thank you

    Since Yapyapyap has gone quiet, and having thought about it, if you're still interested then I am happy to proceed with a final price of £500 paid by bank transfer (£100 before dispatch and £400 within 24 hours of delivery), subject to the following conditions:

    • Satisfactory verification of your identity and clinic details
    • Link to a social media account
    • An email from your clinic email address
    • Proof of address (with your name on it), unless you want it posted directly to your clinic
    Happy to similarly provide relevant proof of my identity if you wish. "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" etc. etc.

    If everything is in order, I can post today.
