Now that themud has settled, abandoning and , you could end up questioning what to purchase proper now. As all the time, I’m a powerful proponent of selecting final yr’s mannequin, particularly when you may get it with a full guarantee and pristine battery — and nonetheless save a bundle.
Exhibit A: For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, Cheapskate readers can get awith promo code CNETGLXY. That’s the bottom value I’ve seen, and a full $150 under an Amazon deal that ran final month. (Currently the S10E sells nearly all over the place for $600.) It’s accessible in black or white.
Despite the “open-box (retail)” designation, these are new, not refurbished. You get all the unique supplies (together with person information, AKG earbuds and so forth) and a full one-year Samsung guarantee.
OK, however the S10E? Surely that letter tacked onto the tip is equal to “lite,” proper? Actually, this mannequin has the identical processor and digicam because the S10, and actually the S10E’s “fingerprint reader and flat display clear up minor issues with the pricier S10 and S10 Plus.”
That’s in keeping with Jessica Dolcourt’s, which is required studying for those who’re fascinated with this phone. Interestingly, though she really preferred it higher than the S10 and S10 Plus in some respects, she concluded it “could not beat the $550 value.” Of course, that was then. (Just to complicate issues, .)
These will not final lengthy at $400. If you desire a flagship Galaxy phone for $350 lower than typical, I extremely advocate grabbing one earlier than they’re gone.
