I thought I would write a quick review of MobilePhoneDeals.Me, a website I used recently to buy my latest mobile phone. MobilePhoneDeals.Me is a fairly new mobile phone comparison service pitching itself as minimalist with powerful features. This site has stripped back navigation so it is easy to find key information and guides. It also has a simple but very powerful tool for comparing different offers on all the important criteria.
Most other comparison sites we looked at either have poor search features, for example not ordering deals properly in terms of price, or not having very complete lists of offers. At the other extreme are sites which have too many options, being able to search on detailed phone features, colours etc, which frankly are a waste of time these days, when pretty well any phone will do what the majority of people need.
Another useful feature of Mobile Phone Deals Me is that it will show you the number of deals found inside its search widget without you having to reload the page which saves time and bandwidth.
Another big advantage is that you can use this site on your mobile phone, it is iroinic that most mobile phone deal sites do not allow you to search from your mobile phone!
The search widget also does a nice trick of following you down the page so that you can always refine your search without having to move back up the page.
So, all this is ok, but does it save you money?
Well, most of these sites list similar deals, I have no doubt that the deal i found would be available on many other sites, but the key to it all is how the deals are ordered. Some sites favour certain brands or retailers based on payout, this site is independant and seems to make an effort to ensure their users get the best price.
They also allow you to order by different types of deal, and different pricing structures, so you can search for the lowest line rental, lowest total cost, most cashback etc.
It also allows you to search for free gifts and has some information on getting free laptops with phones. Interestingly they do not really try to convince you free laptop deals are the best thing since sliced bread but have some useful info on making sure the deals really do offer value for money, and even suggest other sites that can help you get a better deal if the ones on their site do not look too good!
To give you some idea of what this site can do, I saved over 20% on my mobile deal compared to another comparision site I tried, I think that speaks for itself really, so if you want to get some legit advice and a great deal, take a look at mobilephonedeals.me!
