Microsoft Lumia 535 now available in the UK for less than £90. Microsoft Mobile

Microsoft's first exclusively branded Windows Phone, the Lumia 535, which finally hit UK shores, and was available for less than £100, is now available for £90 in the country.

The mid-range smartphone is now available for purchase at Argos (a UK e-tailer) for £89.95 in the White colour variant.

Argos is also claiming to deliver Lumia 535 free of cost to customers in the UK.

Argos's latest offer should impress the budget conscious folks looking for that extra bit of savings, as customers get to save an extra £8 on purchase of Lumia 535, in comparison to Amazon's price tag of £97.
