Although Amazon dominates the field of online technology retail, one area where it has less of a firm grasp of the market is in smartphones. Most people shopping for a smartphone tend to do so as part of a fixed-cost contract which spreads the expense out across a number of years, and typically includes free data and calling minutes.
However there are some discounted smartphones available on Amazon, if you want to buy a new device outright:
- Google Pixel 6 Pro - $699, a saving of $200
- Motorola One 5G Ace - $239.99, a saving of $160
- Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G - $469.98, a saving of $430
