Decent price for the phone but personally I hate the Windows mobile platform.

Moved from windows to android, biggest mistake ever. if it was 02 would have one as a stopgap till Surface phone launches.

A few days ago (?Black Friday) CPW had these at £69 plus £10 top-up. Since those were unlocked you could have used it any network and no branding either.

These use the Nano SIM.

I'm a Windows Phone user but curious to know why Android was a big mistake?

​Calendar is awfully, integration with my PC not good. Camera not as good and OS much harder to navigate. Android is fabulous if you want games and aps for children. but if you want a tool for work windows is untouchable.

You've just identified yourself as a Windows Phone fanboy. Good going!

I work in IT and look after mobile. We used to use iPhones but last year made the decision to roll with Lumia 640/650 instead. Great looking phones and nice screens, and I agree as a work phone to make and receive calls they are great value. However if you are used to IOS / android, you get used to the apps available, and the Windows Store is a mess.
One of the guys on my team was a Microsoft phone user through and through, but even he is fed up with the way Microsoft seem to have abandoned the platform. He is looking at getting an Android device and using a Windows OS launcher to help with the transition.

Worst phone ever

Do people still buy Windows phone?

worth buying just as a cheap Satnav with a cheap data sim?

We rolled out Windows phones at work. Had too many problems with Android models.
Included apps are perfect for our employees.

Could not bring myself to deal with vodaphone again, customer service is shocking.

like I said I run 2 companies. Don't have time to mess about with apps and setup. I just need something that works straight out if the box. That integrates with my other systems with the minimum of effort. Windows does that, if that makes me a fanboy then so be it.
