Looking for a decent phone for this holiday season? There are literally hundreds of smartphones on the market and even though some models may be similar, they are in fact not the same. Phones differ in a number of details – operating system, size, performance, battery life or durability to mention just a few. How do you choose the one that’s best for you? You can ask your friends, but unless they are some sort of experts, it’s unlikely that they will be able to comment on more than three or four models. Or you can keep reading our Holiday Shopping Guide for an objective opinion about the best Windows phones of November and December 2014, which may give you great holiday gift idea.
The HTC One M8 may have its UltraPixel Dual camera, the LG G3 may boast laser autofocus and Samsung may be proud of its camera-centric Galaxy K Zoom, but the king of camera phones is only one – the great Nokia Lumia 1020 featuring an excellent 41-megapixel camera. Devices from other manufacturers may come with innovative technology, but so far none of them managed to beat Nokia in terms of pixel count. Great news is that the phone just got cheaper and now costs only $339.99 off contract.
As for a phone said to reach its End of Life status, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is making out surprisingly well. Since, Microsoft Online Store has started directly offering its black unlocked version of the phone for the price of $549, including costs of shipping and eventual return, the smartphone for sure will find a greater audience. All those who don’t want to be bonded with a contract can now enjoy putting their hands on the phone which is sold without contract. Is it really an end of life of the outstanding combination of phone and camera, or just another stage in the lineup history?
If you are currently in the market for a phone with the best camera, Amazon has an offer that is hard to decline. The retailer is offering the Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T for just $49. And let’s be clear – this is on-contract option and requires signing up 2 year commitment. If you were planning to stick with AT&T anyway, that wouldn’t be a problem. The good news is that anyone can take advantage on the deal whether it is a new customer or existing subscriber upgrading a phone or adding a new line. In each case the price remains the same.
Of all the deals on smartphones currently offered by carriers, retailers and other parties, the one we are about to tell you is probably the hottest. Unless you have something against Nokia or AT&T, we can assure you that you really want to know the details. So here we go. You can grab a brand new Nokia Lumia 1020 for free from Microsoft retail stores. The only condition is that you sign a new two-year service agreement with AT&T. However, the round $0 on the Lumia 1020 price tag even makes the contract feel like a great option.
Missed out on the opportunity to get your Nokia Lumia 1020 when the phone’s price was dropped last week? No worries. You have another chance. The latest camera phone made by the Finnish company was priced considerably higher than other high-end smartphones at its launch. In order to attract more customers, AT&T reduced its price by $100, that is to $199.99, bringing it to a standard on-contract level. If for some reason you did not purchase your unit then, it is even better, since now you can save another $50.
Many people believe that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the best Windows Phone device on the market. Being so, you would expect that the phone would sell like hot buns, but there was a tiny problem with the device. The handset was priced considerably higher than the vast majority of high-end smartphones, meaning it was not easy on the wallet of an average customer, even on contract. We use past tense, because now the Lumia 1020 for AT&T retails for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement, which is a typical price for a device of such a standard.
