Deal: £185 Samsung Ativ S Windows Phone 8 smartphone

Online retailer Amazon is currently listing the Samsung Ativ S smartphone, which was revealed nearly a year ago at IFA in Germany, for just under 202 Euros on its German website but not in the UK. That's around £185 excluding delivery and is possibly the best Windows Phone 8 bargain on the market at around a third of the price of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and roughly half that of the Nokia Lumia 920.

This smartphone, otherwise known as the GT-I8750, comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4.8in Super AMOLED HD display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, a massive 2,300mAh battery, a rear 8-megapixel camera that can record in full HD, a rear-facing one and a myriad of connectivity options.

The only other nearly comparable handset on the market is the HTC 8X which actually costs less but doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of the Ativ S. Check out Samsung Ativ S review here.
