Smartphone Deals to Grab Right Now

Cyber Week is winding down but there are still some smart deals to be had on smartphones. Here are three deals on popular phones that are available right now.

From December 4 through December 8, Best Buy will be offering the ZTE Axon 7 Mini that has a list price of $299 discounted $100 to just $199. That price is for the Axon 7 Mini in Gold while the Platinum Gray model will be $249. This is a great price for an unlocked smartphone that will work with AT&T, T-Mobile and many other GSM/LTE carriers but not Sprint or Verizon.

The ZTE Axon 7 Mini sports a 5.2” 1080p display, fingerprint recognition, 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage and runs Android Marshmallow that will soon be updated to Android Nougat. Buying an unlocked device has become an increasingly popular option with customers since retailers and carriers have stopped offering free phones with a two-year contract. Why not pay up front now instead of being stuck with 24 months of payments?

Verizon is currently offering deals on several phones but the most tempting is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with payments of just $18 per month. The usual monthly payment on this phone is $33 per month so that’s quite a saving. The list price of the S7 Edge is $792 but with this deal, you’d pay only $360.

That’s a sweet deal on a smartphone with a 5.5” curved Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage. The Samsung S7 Edge is available in Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, Gold Platinum and Blue Coral. This price is good at Verizon through December 10.

Rival AT&T is offering the Samsung Galaxy S7 for $349.99, less than half the original price of this best-selling smartphone. For that you get a phone with 5.1” Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage that’s expandable to 256GB. This is definitely a good price for Samsung’s current flagship smartphone.
