If you have been eyeing a Windows Phone 8 smartphone but can't bear to spend the big bucks for the Lumia 920, today’s your lucky day.

The second-tier Nokia Lumia 820 is available for close to the price of a Lumia 720, but the deal ends today. Head to HomeShop18 and use a coupon at the purchase page to avail a Rs 3,000 discount on the Lumia 820. As a result, the phone is available for Rs 19,495, which we think is a great price for this phone.

Sounds like a great deal

Consider this: The Lumia 720 currently is priced at Rs 17, 599, but is bogged down by the 512MB of RAM, as pointed out in our review. But there are no RAM limitations in the Lumia 820, which also has a faster dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, with the CPU clocked at 1.5GHz. The 820 has an 8-megapixel camera as opposed to the Lumia 720’s 6.7-megapixel shooter. To our ears, this sounds like a great deal and a no-brainer especially if you are looking for a budget Lumia. Looks like it's a good day for Lumia fans waiting for a price drop as the Lumia 920's price has also been slashed.

Besides the Nokia Lumia 820, there are other recently launched smartphones in the shopping portal’s SuperDeals offer. The Sony Xperia Z is being sold for Rs 32, 495, which is a discount of Rs 5494 on the original price. The Samsung Galaxy S3 was also being sold at a discount, but the deal has now expired. On the lower-end, Samsung’s Galaxy Y Duos, Galaxy S Duos and Galaxy Fame are also part of the discounts, along with Karbonn’s A12.
