Looking to buy a powerful phone but don’t want to break the bank? Grabbing a previous-generation handset is always a good option. These are often more than capable of handling all your tasks, but have been heavily discounted thanks to their successors’ very existence.
Take the Samsung Galaxy S5 as an example. This phone is very powerful, but it going for only $333.99 on Amazon. Not convinced with that price? Daily Steals has an even better deal for you. They are offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) for a mere $259.99 — $74 less than Amazon. Buyers will have the option of picking between the black, gold, and white colors.
As a refresher, inside you will find a 5.1-inch 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16MP/2.1MP cameras, microSD and a 2800 mAh removable battery. For even more details on what to expect from the Galaxy S5, be sure to check out our full review. Judging by the spec sheet, it’s pretty obvious the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn’t up to the same level of raw performance as 2016 flagships, but for the price, it matches, and in many ways exceeds, the capabilities of new mid-range phones going for around the same price.
What do you think, with the Galaxy S7 likely just a month or two away, is the Samsung Galaxy S5 still worth picking up? For those that want a name-brand phone at a budget price, we personally think the underrated GS5 is still a good pick, but would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. If you are planning on picking this one up, you have between now and February 1st before the deal ends.
