Amazon is really killing it with these deals lately. This time it's selling the still pretty good LG Optimus G for $0.01 with a new contract. That might as well be free. Just yesterday AT&T dropped the price to $50, and now this. They're practically giving these things away.
If you're in the market for a new phone, LG's Optimus G and Optimus G Pro are both solid choices for your hard earned dollar. And to make that dollar go just a little further, AT&T just knocked a fairly substantial amount off of both devices, effectively cutting the cost of each in half.
Moving forward, you'll be able to grab the monstrous 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro for a single, solitary Benjamin.
You might look at this deal and think it sounds pretty mild. After all, the Nexus 10 is only $399 from Google Play. However, this deal can be had tax free outside of California and includes free standard US shipping.
This listing is for a new-in-box 16GB Nexus 10 just like you'd get from Google Play – WiFi-only, Android 4.2, Samsung Exynos 5 dual-core chip, amazing screen, and so on. Buying this tablet from Google will probably rack up taxes in the range of $30, and shipping is $13.99.
Update: The deal is back, this time from a different seller buydig.
New top-of-the line smartphones naturally come down in price over time, but the Galaxy S4 has shown a remarkable tendency to go on sale early and often. This time it's on eBay for $575, which is $25 less than last time. Not bad for a device that usually sells for nearly $700 unlocked.
This is the unlocked 16GB version of the device, meaning no LTE.
If you're in the market for a Cricket Wireless phone, the carrier is offering some downright fantastic deals at the moment. They're offering massive mail-in rebates of $200 off the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, and HTC One SV (in addition to their regular web discounts), delivered in the form of a Visa prepaid card. Thanks to a surprisingly low starting price, Samsung's Galaxy S4 is just $329.99 with the rebate - and that's not a contract price.
A $16 Android launcher is a tough sell, but you can pick up a copy of Next Launcher 3D today for free. This alternative launcher is the work of the Go Launcher Dev Team, and the paid version has over 100,000 downloads, even at $16. Just a few keystrokes and you can have it for free, though. Even if the flashy UI isn't your speed, it's worth grabbing just to play around with.
If you're looking for an audio-focused smartphone and some sweet speakers to use it with, have we got a deal for you. Today the AT&T website published one of its occasional package deals, a 32GB HTC One plus the Beats Audio Pill Bluetooth speaker for $99.99 together. Naturally you'll need to sign a new two-year contract with AT&T in order to take advantage of the price, but even if you don't care about the portable speaker at all, it's $100 off the base price of one of the best Android smartphones around.
