Cold, Not an Iphone!

^ getting old. I'm not going to vote I personally think Nokia have a lot of catching up to do.

Eats Iphone for breakfast. Better in EVERY department!

Hot from me.

Have they fixed the issue where the music volume is the same as the ringer volume on WP8? Cheers

apart from notifications
and screen resolution
and 4G
and apps

but yeah, in EVERY other department it rocks

Nice deal, pity I'm still waiting for my headphones from the last Lumia offer four months ago.

Umm.. the go to deal link takes me back to this deal. wierd.

I think you're confusing this with the Nokia Lumia 920.

4G?..Mmmmm. It has 4G capabilities and is over 100,000 apps not enough?

The appstore has twice that amount alone in crapapps.

No - I've got an 8X and can confirm they are still tied. Bit annoying really.as they were meant to sort that in Tango. They seem more pro-active this time though so who knows.

Thanks. Simple thing, but a real annoying one for me.

= iphones are old and have lost imagination = all iphones look the same and the O.S looks the same, = if its a iphone then its just a iphone nothing changes and the improvements are minimal as can be. The nokia 820 looks like a good piece of kit and is well priced, I love apple and have many apple products but apple have been taking the wee for too long = time for common sense and change. HOT

This is a good deal. If only the 920 was nearer this price...

I am a Windows Phone fan as much as the next guy, but this only has a 480x800 screen, which isn't better than the current or last gen iPhone. Still a bloody good deal!

Ahem... iPhones don't even come CLOSE to Android devices. There's nothing that iPhone has better than the Galaxy S3. Except for a pile of trashy proprietary software and connectivity.

Right on all bar one, the 820 is 4G too.

Well done - you addressed two of my points despite claiming this phone beats the iPhone in EVERY department. Also, you failed to mention that only one of the two versions of this phone has 4G. I suspect this deal is for the 3G version, but I'm happy to be proven wrong.

Don't get me wrong - I've just switched from an iPhone 4 to this, and the Nokia is a good phone. To say it beats IPhone in EVERY department is just wrong though. Pretty much any comparison online will back that up. Stupid comment

Yeah......link doesn't work

What I don't like about the recent nokia phones and generally Windows 8 phones is that most of them look like candy. The're all like colorful, cheerful toy. Why can't they make a premium model like the old luna or E-serises?

Bit of a brick might go for the nexus 4

Agree, Nexus 4 better in every department and £150 less.

The Nexus 4 is a much better shout to be fair

Instore only and only in the Oxford st store so cold for me but hot for those who can get it.

Nexus 4 is better but restricted to 16gb. That is a deal breaker and for me makes it not worth even the cheap price.

Nokia have said all 820's & 920's have 4G

No one said it does

inb4 richto saying that IOS and Android are the most insecure OS on earth and that Windows Phone will save mankind.

If you read the offer it makes no mention of a charging plate and the headphones are subject to availability. I know the picture shows a Lumia 820 on a charging plate but that doesn't mean it's included in the offer. Pls correct me if I have got this wrong.

God if that was similar with the Lumia 920 (even at £100 more) I'd be all over that.

No they haven't. Do a search on google for "Nokia lumia 820 3G or 4G" and you'll see pretty much everyone discussing the two versions of the phone

Just to comment off the cuff. I don't understand why people need such high specification phones. Dating back to the i9000 from that phone onwards I have found no need to have a faster bigger better phone. I have since bought newer better phones but off ebay for less than a third of the price of this handset. If your willing to have last year's tech u can pay so much less. The depreciation value of new phones is so much I struggle to understand why people pay these kind of prices. Its not as if they can improve your business or make you money? Just an expensive toy that will be much cheaper next year. In comparison to actual computers and camera's etc that can be argued to make you money...

different strokes i guess, the same is true of TVs, games consoles (and games) PC tech etc.

I see things the same as you Bashop, I am currently using an iphone 3G which is fine for me (not as good as my Desire S which i did have which was free on my contract but stolen), but different people put different value into different stuff (some like to pee all their money down the loo in a bar, others pay through the nose to see over grown kids kick a ball around, we all have our stuff we blow money on which seems illogical to those who do not "get it".

(I do fancy one of these phones, my iphone is struggling, and is annoying slow but i will be waiting till its free on my contract or is around the £150 - £200 mark)

I want to check 920 Lumia as well and compare it to my s3...

Apple iPhone is never an attractive gadget in my opinion as compared to android and wp....

If you begrudge buying another phone, have you tried Whited00r firmware on your iphone? It will significantly improve the speed and responsiveness. There are 2 versions - Whited00r - based on iOS 3.1.1 and Redd00r based on ios 4. Now, whited00r is significantly faster however is very limited to which apps you can install. Red00r has many more features and slightly better when it comes to app compatibility but runs quite slow. Both firmwares beat the stock version hands-down!
