8gb memory windows platform £100! Put your coat on it's going to get cold in here....

Why buy any Windows OS phone when they have stopped supporting them. Cold from me.

This should be about £25-30

windows 10 mobile is still regularly updated.

I think you can put 128GB SD in them, makes a great iPod alternative and you’d lose less on this over a year at this price than with iPhones etc. If you the apps you need are on there, then this is a steal.

These were never worth £100. They often sell for £18-£25 on eBay in good condition.

Have a windows Nokia lumia phone for work. And it is a shocking phone slow, buggy and battery life very poor

Break the phone and you will get a iPhone replacement from work. Lots of people I know, did that at work as Lumia phone s are not made anymore and companies will not take them out of circulation from their employees until broken.

Really ? Are you trying to bring a dead horse back to life.

Nokia died because of windows phone. Windows phone died because of windows os. All such deals should not be shared

I’m not Microsoft so I’m not bringing anything back to life but yes, windows 10 mobile is still update in line with the pc builds. I still have my lumia 640xl around and IMO is some of the best hardware made, it was updated last week and if the App Store wasn’t crumbling into nothingness I would still be using it.
sadly I’ve had to jump ship to android which is a way worse os than wm10.

The lack of apps on Windows Mobile caused it's demise. Microsoft tried to create own version of popular apps but was very expensive and unsuccessful. Present day Nokia is doing well on back of Android .

I was impressed by Lumia 950 , 950xl , HP elite could be used as computer with Microsoft Dock . But even that has failed. There was a talk about Surface phone using Snapdragon 835 and running full version on Windows 10 but it has not happened so far.

If you want a good phone for parents/elderly just get an Android phone (with as close to stock Android as you can get) and use Microsoft Launcher (formally Arrow). You can customise it to make it really simple to use and even lock icons on the home screen so they don't accidentally delete/move them. It looks really clean and performs well on low spec phones.

Or iPhone SE makes a good choice as well.

Even as a WP user, this phone was never worth £100 to start with.

I wonder how many critics of Windows phones have actually used one for a long period of time. I have, I also use Android and iPhones. So there are not so many apps, big deal, I type e in my browser and get ebay, I type A in my browser and get Amazon, and so on and so on. Admittedly 8GB is not good but if it takes a micro sd card...

Yeah, I was meant to add on a budget in my original suggestion which isn't really a word associated with Apple. The iPhone SE is £349 unfortunately. If you an find a an iPhone SE for the price of this deal then sure go for it.

It's a shame, as a phone, preferred my win phone to Android, having both for over 2 years, the win phone didn't clog up or slow down like android seemed to, mind you, only had a 1/4 of the apps the android had on it (wonder why... ;).
