O2 celebrates St Valentine with £120 Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8 smartphone

Today (and today only), mobile phone operator O2 is selling the recently-announced Nokia Lumia 620 for £119.99, a discount of £30 off its usual retail price and around half its selling price at Argos (note that Argos sells it SIM free whereas O2’s is locked and a £10 top up needs to be added to the price).

The handset – which can be used on Giffgaff and Tesco Mobile - was chosen in a Facebook contest and will be available for sale on O2’s website and instore.

Amongst its most notable features are Windows Phone 8 OS, a 3.8in 800 x 480 pixel ClearBlack display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a front facing one, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music, Nokia Mix Radio, City Lens and Nokia Drive.

We reviewed the Nokia Lumia 620 a few days ago and gave it a very decent score but based on its suggested retail price of £230.

Arguably, at half that price, it should easily be on top of your shopping list if you’re after a decent smartphone; it was and remains one of the best smartphones on the market regardless of the OS.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
