Screenshot 2015-10-08 at 9.20.15 PMThe upcoming Nexus 6P is the Huawei device everyone is drooling over, but the modestly priced P8 Lite is also out there. This phone launched a few months ago for $250, but it's on sale right now for $200 to celebrate Columbus Day next week. I guess that's a thing people celebrate now.

The P8 Lite has a 5-inch 720p LCD, Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot. It has dual SIMs, but the microSD card occupies one of these if you decide to use it. The P8 Lite is still running KitKat, unfortunately, but a Lollipop update is pending. Hey, for $200 it's not bad.

This is an unlocked GSM/LTE device, so it'll run on AT&T or T-Mobile in the US. It has band 12 LTE for T-Mobile as well (for the time being). The $50 off sale is valid now through Saturday the 10th.
