Hey guys,

Just had a couple of questions as my dad birthday is in June so was looking to get him a new phone.

Firstly, what is the site Kogan.com like? Is it reliable and trustworthy? Is there a catch to it? Anyone bought from there?

Secondly, what about the Lumia 820? Its $285 and dad has always wanted a 4G windows phone. Looks like a really good deal to me! Is it? Is it lacking major features?

Thanks guys,
Kinng

I can vouch for Kogan. The are very good.

They are cheap because they import most of the stock on their website.

If you buy a phone it will most likely come from Hong Kong and will take a week, but you shoukd allow 3 weeks for delivery.

So the phones aren't in Australia?

Is there a risk the phone cannot be genuine?

No, they are international phones.

I bought a Galaxy Note II from Kogan and its fantastic!

The only thing was it came in French. A quick change during setup and it was fine! ;)

820's are lacking severely, They are already 1 1/2years old now.

Was one of the first Windows based Nokias. Approach with caution

You want the Lumia 920, Which is already 6months old lol

Cheers

Yeah, I was surprised when I saw the price.

820 Is already older tech running newer software, It tends to be quite slow at times. The camera wasn't anything special either.

(Used one for work)

Oh ok, I see what you mean, thanks Matt!

What about the 920, any crisis?
