The Best Mobile Phone Bargains for Christmas

All you want for Christmas is a decent-spec mobile. Then again, the idea of being locked into a £40-per month contract - or else spending upwards of £500 for one of the hot-off-the-press offerings from the likes of Samsung and Apple might not grab you.

There’s good news on two fronts. First off, rich pickings can be found in the budget market. (Hint: as a starting point, pay close attention to the latest Moto G from Motorola – or even consider hanging on until the Microsoft 535 hits the shops.)

Secondly, don’t forget those former-flagship phones that have been with us for a little while. One big plus point for these tends to be that bugs have been fixed and usage issues ironed out. When it comes to hype, they may have been overtaken by later models (which in many cases are only ever-so-slightly better than the last) - but they are still, by and large, pretty formidable products. And of course, retailers only have so much shelf space – which can mean big discounts a-plenty.

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer this Christmas…

£200-£300

The Samsung Galaxy S4 (Original RRP: £590; typical current price £299.95)  

Samsung Galaxy S4

The things that earned the Samsung S4 glowing reviews and 40 million sales in six months still make it a worthy contender for your cash – a full 18 months from its launch. A gorgeous full HD 5-inch display, 13MP camera, lightning quick performance and some useful innovations such as Samsung’s ‘S Health’ app: all of these give you plenty to play with. It’s 4G enabled too – so obsolescence for this elder statesman of smartphones seems a long way off just yet.

If this phone has your name on it, be sure to check out our huge range of Samsung Galaxy S4 cases – including designer offerings from UAG, smart flip and wallets and an exciting selection of gel, hard and patterned cases.

The Google Nexus 5 (Original RRP: £300; typical current price around £250)

Google Nexus 5No gimmicks; no needlessly complicated interface and no pointless apps taking up valuable memory: when LG built Google’s flagship Nexus phone last year it concentrated on the things that actually matter. The result is a phone that boasts a premium 5-inch display and refined performance – thanks to a powerful 2.3 GHz quad-core processor. Despite no longer being the new kid on the block, the unskinned Android interface ensures the Nexus 5 is one of the first in line for Google’s Lollipop update.

Check out our selection of Nexus 5 cases for lots of sleek, stylish ways of keeping your new mobile out of harm’s way.

£100-£200

The Nokia Lumia 1320 (Original RRP: £275; typical current price: £195)

Nokia Lumia 1320While most top-end phablets come with a hefty price tag, there are some affordable gems out there. Released at the beginning of 2014 and featuring a 6-inch full HD display, the Lumia 1320 is a fine option if you want a big, bold Windows phone.

Help keep that huge screen scratch-free with Nokia Lumia 1320 cases from Mobile Madhouse – including a selection of wallets and flips for complete wraparound protection for your mobile.

The HTC Desire 510 (Original RRP: £149; typical current price: £119)

HTC Desire 510

HTC has long been a byword for quality. If you don’t want to stretch to the likes of the HTC One M7 and M8, you may get lucky and be able to get your hands on the recently discontinued original HTC One. Alternatively, pay close attention to the recent Desire 510 model. You don’t get the same brushed aluminium finish and high-end specs – but what you do get is enough capacity for rapid browsing, smooth gaming and video streaming.

Our HTC Desire 510 cases are carefully engineered as a precise fit for your mobile – offering effective protection without adding any unnecessary bulk to this super-slim phone.

Up to £100

The Nokia Lumia 630 (Original RRP: £150; typical current price: £80

Nokia Lumia 630

In terms of performance, the Lumia 630 sits at the very top end of the budget range and can now be bought for comfortably less than £100. Secure, hassle-free access to Outlook and Office documents means a Windows phone makes perfect sense if you’re already tied into the Microsoft eco-system. As a no-nonsense work phone, the Lumia 630 could be just what you’re looking for. For near- identical specs but with 4G capability, see also the Nokia Lumia 635.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (Original RRP: £295; typical current price: £80)

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

Its 1-GHz processor and lack of 4G connectivity makes the S3 Mini sound positively ancient – even among the current crop of budget mobiles. Nevertheless, after 2 years on the market, this phone is still very much alive and well. The reasons are simple: solid performance, usability and continued support from Samsung. Providing you don’t want to run the latest graphics-rich games and you’re not bothered about near-DSLR quality photography, this mobile should still do everything you ask of it.
