Amazon’s Panasonic CM1 camera phone deal is crazy good

It’s Friday, and for making it through yet another interminable week, you deserve to reward yourself by picking up a decent deal on tech.

What’s more, it’s also World Photography Day, apparently, and with that in mind, may we suggest this seriously awesome discount on the Panasonic CM1 Lumix smart camera phone from Amazon?

GET DEAL: Panasonic DMC-CM1 Lumix Smart Camera Phone for £329.99 at

The online retail giant has gone and knocked £470 off this Android smartphone with a high-end 20MP camera on the back.

Yes, £470! That brings the price of this premium device down from £799.99 to £329.99 – a deal if ever we’ve seen one.

Panasonic CM1

If you’re looking for a sufficiently appropriate way to celebrate World Photography Day, Panasonic’s device is a good shout.

We were impressed with the device when we gave it a go last year. The camera is capable of shooting in 4K and offers great low-light performance, thanks to its increased size.

But one of the major drawbacks was the exorbitant price, which, thanks to Amazon, is no longer such a big consideration.

The phone itself comes with a 4.7-inch Full HD screen, and uses a Snapdragon 801 chip. It still runs Android KitKat out the box, but you’ll be able to update to Lollipop straight away, and Marshmallow should be coming in the near future.
