Looking for a starter smartphone? NUU's offer on the G3+ is the perfect budget pick or side device

If you're in the market for a teen's first phone or a backup for yourself, you're going to want to check out the G3+.
March 29, 2019

If you’re looking for a phone that isn’t a primary device for a power user, check out this offer from NUU Mobile. These specs would have been flagship-tier a couple of years back, but now they’re a fraction of the price, and the best part is that it comes bundled with unlimited talk, text, and data for three months without you paying a dime.

A phrase we started to hear a lot a couple of years ago was “good enough.”

For years, the gap between flagships and budget smartphones was immense in both cost and specs, but recent years have featured the rise of the mid-range as a legitimate option for those who didn’t want to sacrifice performance, but also didn’t feel like shelling out big for something that would be obsolete in 24 months. “Bang-for-buck” became the primary metric, and people started framing things as, “Sure it’s 80 percent of the latest flagship spec-wise, but I only paid 50 percent.”

It's the perfect gift bundle for teen's-first-smartphone... or the perfect side gift to yourself.

Then technology began making some serious leaps. But because the evolution of battery power couldn’t keep up with Moore’s Law expectations, manufacturers began to hit a temporary plateau in terms of what could feasibly be crammed into a pocket-sized device. This gave the mid-range time to close the gap with flagships. 

In 2019, the cost of flagships now looks exorbitant when you think about what specs you can get for less than a third of the price.

Consider NUU Mobile’s new G3+ offer through a partnership with Mint Mobile, one of the country’s fastest growing wireless companies. 

From Nuu Mobile:

The NUU Mobile G3+ unlocked dual-SIM cell phone is the ideal combination of optimal battery power, beautiful design, and high-quality features. Sleek glass casings create a striking and unique design, and its shimmering, Onyx Black color is sure to get a lot of attention every time you use it.

The G3+ rocks a 4,000mAh battery and has a dual-camera setup (13MP and 5MP) as well as a 13MP selfie-snapper, dual-SIM support, all the connectivity features you would expect from a modern device, 64GB of storage (microSD expansion supported), and 4GB of RAM. Under the hood is an Helio P25 Octa Core 2.39GHz processor.

Those specs aren’t “good enough.” They’re just plain good.

The limited-time offer currently running in coordination with Mint hooks you up with more than just a smartphone. You’ll get the G3+, three months of unlimited talk and text for the U.S., Mexico, and Canada (along with 5GB of 4G LTE data per month) from Mint, a sleek case from Tudia, and a NUU Pop to stick to the back of the device. It’s the perfect gift bundle for teen’s-first-smartphone… or the perfect side gift to yourself.
