We’re guessing you’re reading this because you didn’t get the shiny new smartphone that was on the top of your holiday list. Luckily, you don’t need Santa when you have Amazon.
Non-iPhone people can snag a new, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 for an insane $558.81 — that’s $161 off the retail price on Samsung’s site and $111 cheaper than Best Buy’s sale price. Dude.
Aside from the obvious price drop, another reason to hop on this deal is the whole “unlocked” thing. While you’re probably used to buying new phones directly from Verizon, AT&T, or wherever, you’ll want the option to freely switch carriers in today’s post-net neutrality environment.
This means that if your current carrier decides they want to charge you extra to use YouTube or Snapchat, an unlocked phone gives the option to terminate your contract and go elsewhere. It’s not a fix-all solution to phone and internet providers trying to control your usage, but it’ll certainly be nice to not be held hostage by one single carrier.
Apple people are pretty hard to sway when it comes to smartphone preferences, but if there was one phone that could do it, it’s the Galaxy S9. Just released in February 2018, the S9 and S9+ are Samsung’s latest upgrade to their flagship phone. From stereo speakers to a bezel-less screen that’s possibly the best of any mobile device, there’s not much that Samsung didn’t cover.
Here’s the bare bones info:
2,960 x 1,440 resolution display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip and Android Oreo
8 megapixel selfie camera and 12 megapixel rear camera with double apertures
64 GB storage (up to 400GB with a micro SD card) and 4GB of RAM
3.5mm headphone jack
Dolby Atmos support
Augmented reality emojis
IP86 rating (water resistant up to five feet of water for up to 30 minutes)
Sound good? Regularly $719.99, you can save $161 and grab it while it’s still in stock.
