Deal: Amazon Wireless offers high-end Sprint Android phones for a penny, Samsung Galaxy S3 at half-price

August 6, 2012

Sprint launched its 4G LTE network less than a month back, with further expansion already on its way and set to arrive by the end of September. Granted, the third largest network carrier in the U.S. is still playing catch up to the more extensive 4G LTE networks of the top two operators, Verizon and AT&T. However, if you were looking for a reason to switch to Sprint, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Amazon Wireless is offering a slate of high-end Android devices from Sprint, for only a penny, with the Samsung Galaxy S3 going at half the original on-contract price. Of course, the two-year contractual commitment is still required and these deals are available to only new Sprint subscribers. But with similar devices going for as much as $200 on other networks, these deals are absolutely amazing and a great reason to wait out to current lack of 4G LTE connectivity. Here’s a quick roundup:

Samsung Galaxy S3

Amazon Wireless offered the Galaxy S3 for only $119.99 only a few days back. If you were someone you decided to not jump on that particular deal, you’re in luck because the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 now features an even further price cut, and it’s only $99.99, which is half the price of the original on-contract subsidized rate.

You can avail this offer from the Amazon Wireless website here.


The HTC EVO 4G LTE (Sprint’s HTC One X variant) is another great device, but seemingly loses out when compared to the Galaxy S3. If this difference isn’t that big a factor, the new price for the EVO 4G LTE certainly should be. Yes, the HTC flagship from Sprint is available for $0.01.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G was released last year, but it’s still standing strong against the test of time. A good reason to get the Galaxy Nexus is that it will be one of the first devices to receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Another reason? It’s only a penny!

Of course, that is one penny too much, as Sprint is offering the device for free, but that’s alright, especially if you’re a frequent user of the Amazon Wireless site. Think of it as a $0.01 convenience charge. You can check out the offer here.

Other devices

Apart from the above high-end smartphones, there are a lot of other deals available from the site as well. The LG Viper is also available for $0.01, and is still at that price point even if you are an existing customer. All other deals require you to be a new subscriber, so the Viper is a good option for anyone looking to upgrade for practically free. The Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic Touch 4G, and the Samsung Epic 4G are also available for one penny – to new customers only.

You can find the complete list of Sprint Android devices available from Amazon Wireless, and all the above deals, here.
