So you’re in the market for an affordable new smartphone, and while you checked out that cheap HTC One (M7), you want to see what this whole “phablet” craze is about. eBay’s got what you need.
eBay seller yapper_wireless is now selling the 32GB Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $289.99 contract-free. The device comes GSM unlocked, and it’s got 850/900/1800/1900MHz GSM and 850/900/1900/2100MHz HSPA support. It’s worth noting that these devices are rated an 8/10 and that they “may show minor signs of use”.
The Galaxy Note 3’s got a 5.7-inch 1920x1080 Super AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 3200mAh battery. That’s a pretty nice spec list for a phone that was released in late 2013. And it’s almost certainly going to get updated to Android 5.0, so if you’re interested in a phablet-flavored Lollipop that’ll be easy on your wallet, this device is worth a look.
