6 percent topcashback as well. Great phone by the way wp10 is a great improvement

Thanks !

I presume this is unlocked too?

you could also get a "free" Otterbox case of 64GB memory card if you have an AMEX card - £30 off £100 spend offer

Cold, They do not honor the warranty, When you phone in to ask what the reasons for now honoring it they tell you to send an e-mail which they do not respond to. I have personally sent in follow-up e-mails which in turn are not responded to.

I wanna see you be brave! Hot tech at an incredible price.

Snapdragon 212 is it slow?

Snapdragon 212 is it slow?



If it were android then yes, but It's not really noticeable on a Windows handset. The only place you will notice it is in games.

Personally I think its a great handset, screen is nice, camera is good, build quality is excellent for a phone of this price.

Sorry but no.

1 GB/16GB ROM/Snapdragon 212.
5" 720p display

Completely USELESS OS. (I used it for 10 years including predecessor). Absolutely TERRIBLE. Just DON'T go there.

For £80 (plus topup) you could get the Huawei P8 Lite, which has slightly better specs, but doesn't suffer from the CANCEROUS, DEAD OS.

Yes, bottom of the range.

Windows phones are akin to Beta max and Phillips in video .
Android is they way to go.

Fantastic phones but dead in the water now with hardly any apps.

Genuine question as I'm looking for a phone in the price range for a gift, do you know where the Huawei P8 Lite is on sale for that price? Seem to all be around the 150 mark.

Thanks mate!

Wasn't Betamax actually the better quality format? It's just VHS became the winner not because it was better.

Why would anyone use something for 10 years that they hated that much?

Just been supplied with one for work. Seems like a perfectly reasonable phone.

I didn't hate it 10 years ago, obviously. When Windows Phone came out it was much better than Android & IOS. Windows Phone 7 and 8 were both great. But then the apps started getting cancelled, and Windows 10's launch was a catastrophe and now it's just a joke.

There's nothing to recommend about this phone.

Can this be made to dual boot into Android? :P

CANCEROUS, DEAD OS.



Seriously? Cancerous? Classy.

Windows phones, you either love em or hate em. I love em, oh and they are so virus proof unlike the opposition......

There was one proper app along with the standard apps i found useful, called flash sports, 79p a month for premier league streaming which was great! If you dont have an array of apps you need to use then this is fine,but for apps its limited! NO SKY GO...that was a killer lol

The white is now back in stock all of a sudden.

The white is now back in stock all of a sudden.



Keep checking every 10 minutes or so, you will find that they regularly add small amounts of stock. Happens with other items on the MS Store too.

I needed two of these, the total came to £158.
6% Top Cashback (presumably of the ex vat amount £131.66) which is £7.89
Plus redeemed the £30 off over £100 spend through Amex
Total cost for two ended up being £120.11.

Last week I almost bought them both from Amazon for around £110 each so this is a bargain.

Brilliant phone... Wife uses this model and she is a total technophobic and hates tech. She loves it.

locked to Microsoft

locked to Microsoft


that's a new one..

I sent one of these 650s back recently, when I transferred all my apps from my old win 8 nokia lumia a lot of the good apps didn't work, especially the navigator.

Both OOS again.

Decent phone if you want to make calls, text, Facebook, messenger, web browse, email.
A grown up mobile.

Decent apps for me are - here drive, i.player, ITV hub etc, deezer, justeat, moliplayer, obd diagnosis, and banking app.

The only thing I miss is the eBay app. And as mentioned you don't get malware etc.

It was the hardware on Betamax and Philips that was supposed to be better but VHS cornered the software market and therefore people were buying the sets that would play the tapes. Sony learnt a big lesson from that.
Windows will not be a competitor unless they up their game with the apps.
