They’re not even out yet and already the flagship Lumia handsets have been reduced in price. Crisis!! Actually, that comes across as a little unfair, particularly coming from someone chomping at the bit to get their hands on one of these shiny new phones. The 950 had originally been set to cost £499.99, and this has been reduced to £449.99; while the bigger brother 950XL has been reduced from £549.99 to £529.99.
These are Microsoft’s own prices for the SIM-free, unlocked variant. If previous experience is anything to go by we can expect the phones to be available for less still once they hit mainstream shops and websites, as Microsoft’s online store is usually more expensive.
No explanation has been given for the price drop but who are we to complain!
