Hey Neowin,

Im in the market for a new phone. Bought a nexus 4, love it, but im getting tired / bored of it for now and i've customized / rom'd it as much as I can. If it wasnt for PA, i wouldnt love my phone / android as much as I do. Pie / Halo are awesome.

Anyway, I saw a Black Lumia 920 on craigslist for 300, owner said 250 obo and i got him down to 200. Im going to meet him this weekend but I was wondering, how much is this phone really worth?

I think i might pay 250 at most, but if he's offering it up for 200, then of course im going to buy it.

I've been wanting to try windows phone out forever and this is my chance. This will also prove to me if I can adapt with the platform (apps, setup, etc) or if I need to wait for it to mature.
Thanks,
Sikh

I've seen various colors of the Lumia 920 sell used (but in good condition) for almost 300 on eBay. Just a couple weeks ago I actually spent $200 just to repair one that I dropped a while back but never bothered to repair. I was too impatient to look for a used one or wait for a repair when I broke it back in February so I went to the ATT store and bought another that same day. I ended up paying about $150 for the screen assembly and $50 for the repair at a local shop.

I planned to sell it once I had the screen replaced but ended up giving it to my brother. He paid me back with lunch and Iron Man 3 so it was all cool, haha.

With the new devices coming out though, I wouldn't pay more than $250 and it has to be in good condition, $300 tops if is almost like new. Any more than that though and to me it just makes more sense to buy refurbished or buy it new (I think you can find them for $400-$450 new)

The retail price is $450 so $200 is a really good price. And so is $250. If it's in good condition, then go for it. It's one of the best WP devices and the only phone that has a better camera is the Lumia 925 (which should be released this month).

I got mine for $450 new.

If it's in good condition, $200 is a steal.
