It is well known that Verizon likes to charge more than other carriers for their devices. When you have the biggest network in the United States, then you can get away with it. Thus, the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon has remained pretty expensive since its release. Now, Amazon Wireless and Wirefly have them on sale for $199.
Quite frankly, $199 is a great price for the Galaxy Note 2. It still goes for over $300 on Sprint and T-Mobile even with contract discounts. So despite the $199 being touted as an on sale price, it’s still quite a good deal. With it’s quad core processor, 2GB RAM, and 5.5″ 720p screen, the specs also promise the phone will be relevant for at least another year if not longer.
Currently, the deal seems to only apply at Wirefly and Amazon Wireless. Both sites advertise it for the same price. However, as Android Police’s David Ruddock observed, Wirefly does not have the white variant at this time.
With the Galaxy Note 2 being arguably one of the best smart phones in the world, it’s hard to pass up a deal like this. However, with the myriad of devices announced at CES 2013 and plenty more scheduled for MWC 2013, is it worth grabbing this now? Or is it time to put the cash away and save it for a newer device?

Why do you always fail to mention the required 2-yr agreement?
Because people should already know that!!!
It has been status quo for a long time, but some top-end devices (eg LG Nexus 4) can be bought without signing a 2-year agreement. Hopefully that trend continues with other devices, wouldn’t you agree?
Yes I would
Lesson learned…. when dealing with Android just give it a couple months after release and you will be able to get a pretty decent deal on nice smartphones.
Note II is amazing! Just got it, best phone ever.
