Verizon has rolled out some new exclusive devices today, and they won't cost you an arm and a leg. More like a finger—maybe just the tip of one. The Asus ZenFone V Live is available today for $168 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab E launches for $249.99.
The ZenFone V is cheap because it packs modest hardware, but not everyone needs the latest and greatest. Under the hood, this phone has a Snapdragon 425, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Outside, you've got a 5-inch 720p display, and you can charge it via a USB type-C port. It's nice to see a budget phone with a modern port. It's $168 full price, or you can pay $8 per month.
The new tablet offering comes with 1.5GB of RAM, a 5,000mAh battery, and 32GB of storage. It's not clear what SoC it runs, but it's probably not great. The tablet has an 8-inch 1280x800 display as well. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is a little more spendy at $249.99 or you can pay $10.41 per month. Verizon also offers a 2-year contract that lowers the price to $149.99, but you really should not do that.
