Great deal. I got one of these last month and very happy with it

Its dropped because they have got rid of the 4G £2.50 standing charge, i don't suppose its bad for the money but 500mb on 4G, its nothing im with tesco and i have a 1gb 4G 30 day rolling contract and i would class that as low with a good 4G signal you can stream Netflix iPlayer which will soon use that small 500mb of data. You can cap your bills they asked me when i switched to them instore and that stops charges running away which would be a very good idea with 500mb, i think the lowest cap is £15 so a maximum bill of £15 ideal for the kids.

Actually the 4G charge was separate. It was £2.50 extra on top of £15.50 to get 4G. But capping is great, yes.

Correct. I checked this deal out last month at 15.50 and it was only 3G at the time, it was 18 for 4G. This is a bargain price for a great Win 8 phone ( £84!).

superb offer thanks for posting

Stonking deal

Waiting for a deal on PAYG for this phone, it must be coming soon

Super deal since sim free is 220

try the phone before you buy, its complicated to use and get used to, pretty much microsoft geek level needed

I've had a Lumia 800 for over 2 years and after contract came to an end I decided to go sim only and get a blackberry (had one before ) but my god its like going back 5 years
Only thing I wanted is a bigger screen which this has so I'm tempted even at £15 a month with 1gb still £8 a month cheaper than what I was paying

I find windows phone way simpler than android, horses for courses.

Check the jellybeans before eating them, someone has been spiking your mind. If you find microsoft phones difficult, seriously seek some guidance from your grandfather.

Really really not so. Windows phone is elegant and ridiculously simple to use. No where near as fussy as android.

my tesco contract is running out, how much will i be paying if I go for this phone? Sorry if it sounds daft.

£12.50 per month. Tesco splits the contract into two, so within your £12.50 you're paying £3.50 for the handset and £9 for the tariff. If you choose to upgrade in the future before your 24 months is up, lets say three months early, you only have to pay off the handset cost and Tesco waive the tariff fee. Three months upgrade charge in this case would be £10.50, instead of £37.50!

Looks like 12.50 quidco as well / 12.60 top cashback

Thanks very much. Is this an upgrade from my lumia 620? Like most women, I do not care about size.

Older than the 620 but higher end phone so I would say an upgrade.

I have an old windows 7 phone with a tesco pay monthly sim for £10 pm - I've had my eyes on this phone for a little while but waiting for the right price and I think this is it - an extra £5 pm for a new much higher spec phone plus 4g sounds good to me - just chatted to Tesco and I qualify so will sort it tomorrow - happy days and many thanks to op.

Sorry - £5 extra as I think I would need 1G of data.

People tile, + symbol add details. I never would have figured that oh wait....

It's not hard to use it's just different, I hated android personally as it's not intuitive... Horses for courses. If you prefer android don't comment we are not on a comparison thread

It's bigger and has a better screen resolution, so the screen would be sharper. The 920 also has 32GB internal memory, but doesn't support an SD card. The camera is a fair bit better, 8MP Carl Zeiss Optics against the 620's 5MP.

The processor is also clocked faster at 1.5GHz dual core, compared to 1GHz dual core.

If that meant nothing to you then yes, it would be an upgrade. Not a massive leap but definitely more powerful/capable. They are rather large though, so it might be worth going to have a look at a real one.

Looks like a good deal - are Tesco Mobile phones usually unlocked or would I have to get it unlocked separately? And the SIM-free option on their website is £220, I'm trying to decide if it's worth waiting a little to see if that drops further seeing as it's relatively old now!

They're locked to Tesco. You can probably get an unlock code off eBay for a few pound though.

You Do care... about the increasing size of your nose every time you fork out porkies.
On the core of your statement though, I'd say that although the user experience, despite the upgraded internals, will be the same, the overall upgraded quality/aesthetics/camera are massive. But I'm not quite sure you can handle such a big gun, it weighs 180+ gr.

No, Tesco only waive the tariff if you upgrade with them to another Anytime Upgrade contract. If you pay off the handset you'll effectively be on a 24 month SIM Only.

Thanks. And do they unlock phone if I stay with them 24 months?

Yes. They *should* do it for free after a year (even though you're still in the contract for another year), but the helpline guys are pretty decent.

Thanks and how is Tesco network?

My question is...

Can you buy out outright the phone credit and cancel the contract (like you can do on O2 Refresh plans)? Essentialy paying £3.5x24 for the phone? Or just upgrade/extent/sign a new 24month contract. Well I read the T&C and I'm 99.9% sure it's only for upgreade, but I'd like some real life input here.

Anyway I'd be very tempted, if there was a 2nd phone other than the Lumia 920 on their early upgrade range, in the same pricepoint (£3.5pm), to get the lumia on a new contract, pay off the £84 and upgrade instanlty to get a 2nd phone. But the next cheaper phone is Sammy Galaxy SIII Mini, costing more, £5pm, and it is way way inferior to Lumia 920. Then again I'd consider getting a 2nd Lumia, but it is so expensive to unlock (circa £30)

EDIT: My question was answered by Varashnarath as I was typing.

I don't wish to give an biased answer, but the customer helplines are brilliant 98% of the time and they use O2's coverage which is fantastic for 2G but not quite so good as EE for 3G/4G. That said, EE are useless at customer service.

I'd be interested to see the camera. I took the same pictures with my 620 and my friend's 925 (not 920) and mine were better. I think they fitted the wrong camera onto my phone

Amazing phone

I had been edging towards a Moto G on this tariff to replace my now very dead HTC Desire. I don't change phones often haha! But this seems to be far more phone for the money even though it's an older model (still far more upto date for me though)

Its actually available now at that price on Tesco mobile online.

I'm still thinking the £12.50 a month deal is better for me but for a heavy minute user maybe buying the phone outright and then going to a sim only contract is better?
