Cyber Monday means making a selection from the many ads and choices that have been placed in front of you as a customer. Now that decision time is here, make sure you’re making the best decision by choosing the device that fits your needs the most. Here is a breakdown of the three major Android devices that will be offered for a $1 or less this Cyber Monday at Amazon.
HTC One M8
The HTC One M8 will be offered for $0.01 through three of the four major carriers here in the United States. Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint versions of the device will be selling on Amazon running through the Cyber Monday shopping holiday. That being said, the HTC One M8 offer some great specifications that really make it one of the most media friendly devices on the list between the three devices. The color selection will ultimately depend on your carrier, but Amazon has Glacial Silver, Glamor Red, Amber Gold, Gunmetal Grey, and Black all available heading into the shopping holiday. All of the models that are going to be $0.01 are the 32GB versions, and this device actually allows users to choose between Windows operating system, and the traditional Android operating system. A 2.3 GHz processor, an HTC UltraPixel camera, and a 5-inch display make this a really great media-focused device. The One M8 also features HTC BoomSound, in addition to the traditional Android features of top-end devices, which is why this phone is so media friendly.
The LG G3 is a great device, but this Cyber Monday is only being offered for $0.01 by Amazon with Sprint and AT&T as the carriers of choice. That being said, the phone is still a great device. With 32GB of storage, availability in Metallic Black, Silk White and Shine Gold depending on your carrier, this device just might be the one for you if you’re looking for a good all-around smartphone on one of the two offered carriers. A 5.5-inch screen, a 13-MP camera and a 2.5 GHz processor this device really is hard to complain about. With a slightly larger screen size, it also makes for a device that is ultra-appeasing to those who enjoy a larger screen.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a great device for anyone who is looking to get work done, and have an incredibly highly-functional phone. This Cyber Monday, Amazon is offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 for $0 through AT&T, and $1 through Verizon and Sprint. That being said, all of the devices offer just 16GB of storage, which is less than the aforementioned competitors in this category.
However, a 5.1-inch screen, 16-MP camera and a 2.5 GHz processor really make the device hard to compete with on the performance end. That being said though, the color availability is definitely lesser. Black, White, Charcoal and Copper Gold are the offered choices, and they also vary by service provider.
Which is the best option?
At the end of the day it ultimately will come down to each individual’s personal needs, when identifying which smartphone will be best for them. None of them are bad, or a downgrade from each other, when being held side-by-side. However, the HTC One M8 for the available features, the overall operation of the device and the keyed in focus on media is really important in the grander scheme since the phones don’t differ that greatly in the performance category.
