[Deal] Buy the Huawei P Smart before March 18 and get £50 PayPal credit

If you are in the market for a new budget phone, Huawei’s P Smart handset could be just what you are looking for. Launched in the UK in early February, the P Smart has a lot going for it even at its standard retail price of £229, but when you factor in the £50 PayPal credit that Huawei is throwing in that brings the price down to just £179, it quickly becomes a no-brainer. Before you ask, yes, the P Smart does indeed have NFC connectivity which means you can use Android Pay, unlike the Honor 7X.

Sporting a 5.65-inch FHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Kirin 659 Octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, dual 13MP + 2MP rear cameras, 3,000mAh battery, the P Smart runs Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8 out of the box. You can check out the specifications table below to see exactly what the Huawei P Smart phone brings to the table.

The only thing you need to do is wait 14 days from the date you purchased the P Smart and then fill in the online claim form. If the idea of PayPal credit isn’t your thing, you can always transfer it directly over to your debit or credit card. It really is that simple.
