The number of mobile phone operators selling refurbished handsets is increasing and that can only be a good thing. After O2, Vodafone, Orange and Three, Virgin Media is now selling reconditioned or "good as new" handsets which come with a 14-day guarantee period as well as a full 12-month warranty.
The Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8 model is the one standing out or us and can be had for £110, a price that includes £10 top up credit (which gives unlimited landline calls and 120 minutes when the customer joins the Big Talk tariff).
The smartphone runs on a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 processor clocked at 1GHz. There's also a microSD card slot, 8GB onboard storage, a 3.8in ClearBlack display with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, Microsoft Office and Outlook, Nokia City Lens, Nokia Drive and Nokia Music, inbuilt Dolby headphone technology with enhanced noise cancellation, a 1,300mAh battery, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a front facing one.
That last feature gives it the edge on its smaller (and cheaper) brother, the Nokia Lumia 520. You can read our review of the Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8 smartphone here.
