Best Smartphone Deals: Score a Free Galaxy S6 With a $20 Bill Credit

Published

This week, Google officially announced Project Fi, a wireless service that promises cheap, easy-to-understand plans — if you've got a Nexus 6. We haven't seen any deals on the Nexus 6 since December, but we did find some Editors' Choice offers on other smartphones. Check out the week's best phone deals below!

Samsung Galaxy S6Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB Android Smartphone for Sprint with a $20 Monthly Credit
Store: Sprint
Price: Free with free shipping
Lowest By: $200

Is It Worth It?: "The Galaxy S6 is what happens when Samsung doesn’t try to copy Apple’s phones, but instead finally tries to copy Apple’s product philosophy," reads The Verge's review. With its beautiful (and familiar) aesthetics, the S6 may be the closest an Android fan can come to getting the iPhone experience. You can grab one for yourself with this Editors' Choice offer from Sprint. Not only do you get the S6 for free, but you'll receive a $20 credit on your monthly bill when you activate a new 2-year Unlimited Plus plan.

The phone features a 5.1" 2560x1440 QHD AMOLED touchscreen display, an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, 2160p video recording, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.1, and Android 5.0 (Lollipop).

Store: Quality Cellz via eBay
Price: $349.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $135

Is It Worth It?: The Galaxy S6 is a very fine phone. However, critics have noted the absence of some of its predecessor's best features, like expandable storage (via microSD slot) and a removable battery. Luckily, you can score the previous-gen Galaxy S5 unlocked for just $350. This Editors' Choice offer is $30 below our previous mention of an open-box unit and the best price we've ever seen.

This GSM phone features a 5.1" 1920x1080 AMOLED touchscreen display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, and Android 4.4 (Kit Kat).

Store: Shop Cell Deals via eBay
Price: $199.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $143

Is It Worth It?: Ready to ditch your wireless contract entirely? Grab this LG G Flex prepaid phone for Sprint! An Editors' Choice savings of $143, this smartphone features a unique curved shape that Engadget called "one of the most pleasant handsets you can put up to the side of your head." However, buyer beware: this unique phone is not well-suited to pocket carriage.

It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.26GHz quad-core processor, a 6" 1280x720 curved OLED display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, and Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean).


Amazon Fire PhoneUnlocked Amazon Fire Phone 32GB Smartphone with a 1-Year Amazon Prime Membership
Store: Amazon
Price: $189 with free shipping EXPIRED
Lowest By: $359

Is It Worth It?: Amazon's Fire Phone was designed around Prime, so this bundle is perfect. You'll get the unlocked smartphone and a year of Prime for just $189, which is an Editors' Choice savings of $359 and the best price we've seen. Although CNET's reviewer was disappointed with this handset's lack of access to many Android apps, they found very little to complain about with the phone itself: "The Amazon Fire Phone has cool '3D' visuals and a fresh OS design, and it hits the sweet spot for one-handed operation."

This GSM phone features a 4.7" 1280x720 touchscreen LCD, a Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 1080p video recording at 30 fps, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 3.0, and Fire OS 3.6.8.
