HTC Windows Phone 8S available for £159 from Expansys

Lime HTC 8S

HTC's low-end sibling to the Windows Phone 8X has gone on sale at Expansys UK. The HTC 8S is available for just £159.99, a full £40 knocked off the listed price. Packing Windows Phone 8, a unique two-toned design, MicroSD expansion and a rather impressive build quality for the price, the 8S is a Windows Phone that's full of surprises.

HTC Expansys Deal

While not the typical high-end Windows Phone, the HTC 8S will cater for those who don't require all the bells and whistles and would rather bag a superb deal for a handset that delivers an optimal smartphone experience. Check out our in-depth review of the HTC 8S for our thoughts on the smartphone and whether or not you should be making the investment.

Currently only the blue variant is listed at the new price point.

Lol... It's pretty hard to comment anything here if you can't say anything negative.. I bet you'd love to if here would only be 'ooohh so awesome deal!!' comments... No need to take these so seriously.

There SHOULD be whining. Not every article warrants sunshine and rainbows in the comments. A reasonable amount of whining is healthy.
Would you rather everyone just says "wowsers, awesome deal!!1" the whole time?

That, frankly, is boring and does not promote discussion or debate in the slightest.

I think this price is quite high. The 8X has been available for £160 unlocked in the UK for the past few months. The 8S is currently £129.99 from Carphone warehouse on payg including £10 top-up, its fully unlocked for use on all networks too.

NOT including the ever increasing Other folder. Stupid, stupid move packing this phone with such a paltry amount of internal storage. Less than a gig (substantially less,oftentimes) is available to the user

It's a shame, indeed. Such a beautiful hardware. What the hell was HTC thinking when making this phone? Were they on crack or something?

Id get this for my dad who is still rocking the Nokia from 2000. However I've seen the 8s sell for £144. Might wait till they go to £100

I got the HTC 8X for £179 from Laptops Direct but has now expired. The HTC 8S can be had on the high street for £149 in UK

U can add storage, I know it's not the best thing however at least you can do it....i wish my 925 had more then 16 gig like apple 64 g......

Anyone else get the impression that WPCentral gets paid by Expansys to advertise their products? That's the only excuse I can think of for this article. 'just'  £159.99, a full 20% off the RRP a year ago - does that sound like a good deal to you?

The Lumia 520 has been £59 on upgrade for ages a Carphone Warehouse, everyone i know have been buying them, think the offer ended today tho...

I rock an 8S as my everyday driver. Only thing i can fault is the inbuilt memory and the inability to install apps to SD. Oh and the really slow shutter speed.
Apart from that, I love it. Would love an 8X or a 920, but wouldn't we all?

Let me Ask then. I also have 8s. I'd like to buy an sd card for it. As you mentioned we can't install games to the Sd. So, it is quite worthless than, I,guess? Meaning that no Halo:SA, no Asphalt 7, no Six guns?
I am a,bit disappointed now. Is there any solution to that?
