Cell phone stores both on-site and online are offering great deals on top Android smartphones for under $1,000. Two of the best options for top-tier cellphones at outrageously affordable prices are the Google Pixel 4a 5G and Google Pixel 5 models. Each Pixel phone by Google features dual-SIM capability, which means you can conveniently operate two lines on one great phone.
Because the Pixel 5 and 5a 5G phones are now available, the Pixel 4 models are heavily discounted. The Google Pixel 4a 5G is available brand-new for under $500 from most retailers, and this is before any discounts or deals are applied. The 4a model is available brand-new for a $299 MSRP, again before rebates, discounts, or promotions.
Do not let these prices fool you, however. Both the Pixel 4 and 5 models are of similar quality with a few differences in features. For example, the 5a and 5a 5G models have a larger OLED display, better aspect ratio, and an added 117-degree field of view camera feature than the Pixel 4 models.
Is the Pixel 5 the best 5G Android phone under $1,000 on the market? It just might be. AT&T is offering $200 off the $724.99 MSRP of the Pixel 5 and 5a 5G models with eligible trade-ins. Google itself is offering the Pixel 5a 5G for $449 or $18.71/mo. for 24 months, with additional discounts for bundled purchases.
Opinions on what makes the best Android phone vary, however. Samsung is a highly popular smartphone manufacturer, with a reputation for cutting-edge cell phones capable of keeping pace with the current iPhone models every year. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is available for an MSRP of $899 directly from Samsung after applicable deals or discounts are applied. Considering this phone has an original MSRP of $1,800 (256GB storage) or $1,900 (512GB storage), it is advisable to grab the best AT&T Verizon or other cellular service carrier deals available fast.
The OnePlus Nord N10 retails brand new for $299.99 or less. This phone has a nice design and beneficial features. The Nord N10 has its limitations, however. This phone is an excellent choice for consumers looking for a positive, simplistic Android smartphone experience without the need for extra bells and whistles or heavy price tags. What is the best Android One phone? The Nokia 8.3 5G is Nokia’s flagship Android One phone. This phone is available brand-new between $400 and $600 or less depending on the retailer and applicable bargains.
