We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now but we’ve thrown in some of the best carrier offers too. We’ve made note of the international devices as well, but make sure to check carefully before you buy.
Featured deal: Save 33% on the Nokia 8.3 5G
Nokia isn’t the smartphone leading light it once was, but it’s still got a trick or two up its sleeve. The Nokia 8.3 5G is one of them, and while it wasn’t flying off the shelves at retail price, it’s a bit of a steal now at its all-time-low price on Amazon of just $399.99 ($200 off)
The Nokia 8.3 5G features a 2,400 x 1,080 6.81-inch display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. Alongside that mid-range processor, you’ll find 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage (expandable up to 512GB), and a 4,500mAh battery. There’s also a dual-SIM slot, a headphone jack, and an NFC chip.
