If you are not too fussy with ads and apps, Amazon is willing to take off $50 off the price of any low to mid-range Android smart phone on its “Prime Exclusive Phones” list. The program is now adding five new phones from Alcatel, Nokia and Motorola.
First on the list of the $50 discount is the Nokia 6 which normally costs $229.99 but with the Prime program will cost $179.99. It is an attractive purchase featuring a metal body, Android 7.1 software, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 5.5 inch 1080p screen, 16MP for the rear camera and 8MP for the front, dual speakers, an SD card slot and a 3000mAh battery. It is also HMD’s first attempt at an Android powered phone from Nokia.
Then there is the Moto E4. It usually sells for $129 but with the benefit of the program, can be acquired with $30 off the base price. It too is made of metal and features Android 7.1, 16GB of storage plus a micro SD slot, 8MP on the rear camera and 5MP on the front, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 720p display and a 2800mAh battery. However, while some E4s will come with Snapdragon 425 and others with 427, Amazon has not as yet announced which one will be eligible for the program. Nevertheless, the differences are still minor.
The final additions to the list of phones under the Prime Exclusive program are three new models from Alcatel. The most expensive phone here is the Idol 5S costing $279.99 but thanks to the program, that price will go down by $80 to just $199.99. Like the first two, the 5S is also made of metal and is impressively spec’d with Android 7.1, 32GB of storage with a micro SD slot, 3GB of RAM, a 5.2 inch 1080p display, 13MP on the rear camera and 5MP on the front. Battery size has not been determined yet.
The second cheapest Alcatel phone to get the treatment is the A50 which costs $149.99 as standard but gets $50 off from the program and becomes $99.99. It has Android 7.0, 16Gb of storage and a micro SD slot, 13MP on the rear camera and 5MP on the front, 2GB of RAM, a 5.2 inch 720p display with a Mediatek 6738 SoC and a 2800mAh battery.
And finally, the A30 with a standard price of $129 further trimmed by $50 by the program and can be had for $79 with some Amazon advertising included. It is made of plastic and uses Android 7.0, 16GB of storage with a micro SD slot, 2GB of Ram, a 5.5 inch 720p display with Mediatek 6738 SoC, 13MP on the rear camera and 5MP on front and a 3000mAh battery.
