The Lumia 830 is a step down from the Lumia 930, but still boasts some excellent specs at a very affordable price. The colourful design is just as premium in look and feel as the 930, while the 5-inch 720p screen is crisp and vibrant and the 10-megapixel camera is highly dependable for everyday shots.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL

This 5.7-inch beast is one of the bigger Windows phones you can bag right now, making it a solid choice for movie fans. The 720p screen is typically rich and vibrant and the 13-megapixel camera works well in a range of conditions, backed by a decent 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Factor in the excellent battery life and it’s a solid all-rounder, suffering from only the occasional tiny bit of laggy performance.

Microsoft’s Lumia 640 is a great budget Windows phone that offers seriously great value for money. The glossy design might lack sex appeal but the colourful screen boasts HD visuals and the 8-megapixel camera is strong for the price, making this phone a solid rival to the Moto G. Pay a little extra and you’ll get 4G support too.
