Even the Galaxy S9 is ungodly cheap today, so you have no excuse not to buy a new phone

Prime Day deals on Samsung phones have been flowing since yesterday, and when we woke up today to find they'd gotten another $100 cheaper, it was certainly a deal worth sharing, but I'm here to tell you that if spending $600 on a new phone is too much, there's still a kickass Galaxy deal for you.

Meet last year's Galaxy S9 (opens in new tab), which is still a phone with phenomenal Android power in a pocket-friendly size. It was down to $450 yesterday, and today's $100 discount applies to it, too, bringing it down to $350.

$350, for a flagship phone with a top-notch camera and no frustrating hole punches on the screen. That's insane.

The Galaxy S10 is fantastic, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra $250 when the S9 is priced this low. $350 is less than most mid-range phones these days, and this phone is far more potent than they are, with the ridiculously good build quality and smooth software. Best of all, since the phone's been out for so long, cases and accessories can be had for cheap, cheap, cheap!

  • at only $50 more Pixel 3a is a better deal
  • Other than the updates and maybe the camera this statement is false.
  • Still can buy it cheaper used, but still not bad.
  • Yes you can. But new is nice I guess.
  • (just to be difficult)
    Or you can get an iphone 6s plus for 250 that's probably all you need
