You've got a lot of options for high-end Android devices just at the moment, with the HTC One M8 out and the LG G3 coming soon. But if you want something for Verizon right now and your funds are limited, you could do a lot worse than the Samsung Galaxy S5. Amazon's wireless portal has the phone on Big Red for just fifty bones, assuming you're a new customer or you're adding a new phone line.


That's a full $100 off the price at Verizon's website, where the phone is "$99.99" for new customers after a $50 mail-in rebate. Incidentally, if you're upgrading from an existing Verizon phone, the price is $112.49 at Amazon and just $100 at Verizon, though that's after you get a $50 rebate in the form of a debit card - I'd go for Amazon's more straightforward price if I was in the market. Amazon Prime users can get free two-day shipping.

Amazon offers the phone in white or black, the only two colors that the Verizon variant comes in at the time being. This is about as low as you are likely to find the Galaxy S5 at the moment. If you'd rather not be bound by a contract at all, the phone is $600 at Verizon. As usual, Amazon's third-party price for the non-contract phone is much higher at $695.
