Sprint’s new Evo 4G LTE is their flagship phone, and with a new iPhone looming and other Android phones around the corner, we can expect older hardware to become cheaper. Prices seems to go up every year on new phones and this is a good deal to jump on.
The Samsung Epic 4g Touch is now going to cost $99 on June 21st after the new Galaxy S III phones launch. This phone is still a great phone, The S II Epic 4G Touch has a huge 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display and a 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor powering Android Gingerbread with the latest TouchWiz UI .The phone has had leaked Ice Cream sandwich builds pop up here and there with an official one coming soon. The phone also supports Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network and boasts an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p full HD video recording. The phone is super-light weighing only 4.6 ounces and the processor is very fast. It just depends on if you’re willing to stick with Samsung’s older SII line.
The Samsung Galaxy s III line is launching and is already expected to be a hit while making this a good deal for those looking for a budget phone with great horsepower. One must also consider even staying with Sprint. Their service has been dismal ever since the iPhone launch while Sprint keeps saying they are improving 3G and working on LTE for next year.
We have experienced a major increase in bad reception, dropped calls and generally bad wireless data.
Prepaid plans seem like the best way to go as they don’t require 2 year commitments with $teep cancellation fees.. Unlocked GSM phones that are international for the most part get better internals and are switchable with any SIM card. Sprint is still unlimited while Verizon appears to be worsening its wireless plans.
The phone is even cheaper at Amazon Mobile for $0.01 with a 2-year contract as is Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus is also available for $0.1. There have also been older phones on AT&T like the Inspire ($0.1) and Verizon’s Droid Bionic (free) on sale.
