Wow just bought this to replace my HTC One M7, $240 from Warehouse stationary as per...then went to unlock it...it was already unlocked...

For some reason I was sure I had to unlock it for 2 degrees! Saved another $30, great.

If you are getting aliexpress cases, some are made out of this horrible sloppy plastic, gel cases I have seen them called.

Anyway, the stuff stinks, it stinks really bad.

I ended up grabbing a few different ones from aliexpress, they are cheap enough ($1.50 - $6.70) that if they are no good I can just toss them. No doubt I'll get a couple that don't actually fit the phone.

andynz: I did a quick search for "zte blade S6 plus case" on aliexpress.com and it comes with lots of cases.  Start around $1.70US shipped each.  I'm pretty sure the Smart Ultra is the ZTE Blade S6 Plus according to UK review sites.
Almost identical, slight difference in dimensions Blade S6 Plus is 155mm tall and 7.7mm thick, Smart Ultra 6 is 154mm tall and 8.4mm thick, both 77mm wide.

Picked one up this evening from WHS, mentioned i was too slow to take advantage of the $191 online deal/screw up he laughed and told me about a similar deal on aa Samsung S5 special for $579 but online it was discounting further down to i think he said $350odd dollars

Did the NFC back to back setup from existing phone, concept works well, looks like a damn good phone for $240

That Samsung deal is still up store, well at the Henderson store, ends on the 17th.

VU6 is back to 299 there even after trying to push to get the rip us off deal in store, oh well.

I think it was part of an earlier promo not the rip us off promo, same price though

Why have you lost the happy feeling?

It's being worked on at the moment. There were a couple of complications with Semble on the prime and ultra but last I heard they were on the way to getting it sorted.

Nothing wrong with the Ultra, just, would rather have had a S5 for $350 than a Ultra for $240.
Was trying to buy the Ultra for $190 when they were applying the discount twice but they were out of stock. Didn't think to try the code against the S5 :-(

Have I missed the boat or can you still buy the S5 today for $350 and if so how?

Sorry if this seems a silly question :)

No longer an option.
