Basically as above. I have a 620 but Id like to upgrade my windows experience with a better camera via Trademe etc? Is 920 the best camera?

Also I can buy an as used 620, vs $20 importing a new screen for the one that is cracked.

You should get an Android device.

 

 

Or an iPhone, I know of 3 people that gave up their Windows phones for iPhones and were blown away by how much they could do with their new device.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Why would you bother with a Windows mobile device?

I have a couple of lumias you can have for the cost of the shipping. 920 (I think) and 640XL.

But really, I'd also recommend an Android. I loved windows phone, but it's gone.
I wouldn't go back to iPhone, it's far too expensive.
I'd recommend a not Samsung Android. I particularly like the Moto phones, they're pretty capable and really reasonably priced. And, they get updated.

I have 2 Androids and a current Iphone (which I only use for Dev as I hate it), but just wanted to keep in touch with windows 10 and see if there are any cheapies on trademe, I will likely replace the 620, its my real go to stealth phone its so little. Importing and s10e sd855 as well which is also stealth but brilliant, imo by far the best galaxy ever.

I suspect eventually Windows phones will just stop working. I still have my 930 but don't have a SIM card in it anymore.

 

A real pity as I liked Windows Phone (and the camera was much better than the one on my Samsung).

i know of people who went from the likes of Symbian to Windows Phone and were blown away by how crippled Windows Phone was. Nice OS but Windows Phone OS was very limited in many areas.

There is an Android Launcher (i.e. the UI) that recreates Windows Phone reasonably well.
