People who consider buying a Windows 10 Mobile device these days have a wide range of amazing deals to choose from, and eventually save a lot of money on their new gadget. After Microsoft’s generous deal, where it offers a free Lumia 950 to everyone who buy the Lumia 950 XL, we have another interesting discount, this time from the UK.

British retailer Carphone Warehouse provided a great deal for it customers, as it started to offer the Lumia 550 for just £39.99 when purchased with a £10 SIM card from EE or Vodafone, making it a total purchase of £49.99! Microsoft also cut the price of the Lumia 550 to $99 some time ago, but we must agree that Carphone’s offer is much better.

Those who purchase the Lumia 550 with one of these SIM cards will receive 500MB of 4G data, 150 talk minutes and unlimited texts per month, which makes this purchase even a better deal. Additionally, customers who are able to upgrade on a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) plan are able to get the Lumia 550 for just £29.99.

Here’s the list of the Lumia 550 specs:

  • Screen size: 4.7 inches, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • Rear camera: 5MP
  • Front camera: 2MP
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 Quad-core up to 1.1GHz
  • Internal storage: 8GB (expandable up to 200GB)
  • RAM: 1GB

It’s too bad this deal is only available to customers in the UK, so people from other parts of the world are not able to take advantage of this offer. Lumia 550 is a budget phone, and it doesn’t offer spectacular specs, but you can hardly find a better phone for as low as 49 pounds.

Of course, if you found a better deal for a Windows 10 Mobile somewhere else, please share it with us in the comments, so we can let other people know about it.
