This week’s galaxy of recent Samsungs got here with a Samsung Galaxy S10 announcement: Value cuts are coming. Not instantly, however quickly — in all probability when the Galaxy S20 goes on sale subsequent week. You’ll save $200 on the S10 and S10 Plus and $150 on the S10E. That can put the latter at $599.

Amazon is not ready. For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, Amazon has the unlocked Galaxy S10E (128GB) in black for $549.99. In case you are unhealthy at math, that is $49 beneath what Samsung might be charging a few week from now. And if you would like it in white or blue, the value is $599.99, successfully matching Samsung — however with out the wait.

For what it is value, Best Buy also has the Galaxy S10E for $549.99, and if you happen to want service for it and resolve to activate with a provider in the present day, you will save an extra $50.

OK, however the S10E? Absolutely that letter tacked onto the tip is equal to “lite,” proper? Truly, this mannequin has the identical processor and digicam because the S10, and actually the S10E’s “fingerprint reader and flat display resolve minor issues with the pricier S10 and S10 Plus.”

That is in line with Jessica Dolcourt’s Galaxy S10E evaluate, which is required studying if you happen to’re enthusiastic about this telephone. Curiously, though she really appreciated it higher than the S10 and S10 Plus in some respects, she concluded it “could not beat the OnePlus 6T’s $550 worth.” That was then.

Certainly, earlier in the present day I wrote a few refurbished Galaxy S9 for simply $235 (nonetheless accessible, by the way in which), which illustrates the way in which these telephones get an increasing number of inexpensive over time. However not everyone seems to be wild in regards to the refurbished possibility. If you need final 12 months’s flagship Galaxy for $300 lower than typical, this could be the time to pounce.
