  • Great. It's time to emerge more again, Windows Phone!
    Hope for any promos in my country so I can check it out and tip for it immediately.
  • Might just consider picking up one for my dad as an early b'day present. Thanks for the tip guys!
  • That's one expensive birthday present!
  • My dad's in need of a better phone so why not use it as an excuse to get him a WP ;) also it's the gift that matters, not the price.
  • Bargain for an awesome phone, I bought my wife a 620 for £140 only three months ago!
  • Might have to pop to Tesco and get this as a backup phone at some point then ;D
  • Unlocked?
  • Yep, SIM free / unlocked.
  • I believe out of all the mid range Nokia Lumias this is the worst one! And I own it! Because that was the only one that had the sucky battery then they start putting 2000mah on all their phones even the 5** and the 7** and the 6** and also the same 8** like the 822 and 810!! If it wasn't for that the whole 8gb of memory wouldn't be too bad but anyways I'm done with my rant. Can't wait till my AT&T contract expires in October, hopefully they will have started selling that Nokia phablet by then ☺ if not then 1020 or maybe I'll go to T-mobile for the 925 to save money on my monthly bill! Anyway yea sorry for rambling...Love WP and Love Nokia.
  • Yes, the 1650 mAh battery kills any interest I would otherwise have for this phone. In my country, it now costs less than US$300 unlocked - but that battery sucks!
  • Not at all trivializing your experience. I have had two 820s (cracked the digitizer on the first one) and have not had any battery issues. With the exception of some problem apps, I'm actually impressed with how long this battery last (with moderate use of course).
  • This photo makes me happy :)
  • Now we're talking, Lumia 720 needs a similar discount because it looks like some kind of anomaly with that price.
  • has matches the same price @ £179
  • Nokia Lumia 820, SIM-Free, Amazon, £191.54. That phone is really cheap (still want to get a 625, I want the battery and the screen size)
  • Thank you very much for the heads-up, I just ordered two for the ol' parents - nice little upgrade from their current HTC 7 Mozarts.
  • I like how right before you guys posted this article you had a review for that horse game. Makes you think........
  • lol, good spotting.
  • I hate to be pendantic, but can I just point out that the £20 off offer ends on Monday, and that the offer appears to be only available via Tesco Direct, so for those that are thinking about ordering one, do it soon!
  • Same price on Amazon too
  • Doesn't ship for 2-4 weeks though
  • Man, the 820.  This phone is the perfect size.  If Nokia would release this phone with 720p screen, 32gigs of memory, longer battery life, and a better camera it would be my pefect phone.  I love the size and I love the interchangeable covers.  It's biggest downfall was the 8 gigs of onboard memory combined with the limitation of Windows Phone to install apps on the micro sd card.  That's what killed it for me.  Other than that I was in love with my 820.  Now I'm rocking a 1020 and love it but I still think the 820 is the pefect size.
  • You can also use your clubcard vouchers - I tested it as far as the checkout & got it down to £154.50!
