This weekend’s top Android smartphone deals on Amazon


We’re shown you how to save money by going contract-free with pre-paid plans and have featured the best unlocked phones for any budget, but we realize that there are a lot of you who simply want a good deal and don’t mind signing a two-year contract to buy a new phone. The good news is that there are some amazing deals on Amazon which can save you quite a bit of cash.


Arguably the best HTC phone of 2012, the HTC One X sports an amazing 720p display, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, 16GB of internal storage and one of the best cameras you can find on an Android phone. AT&T cut the price of the HTC One X to $99.99 nearly a month ago, but Amazon isn’t about to be outdone by AT&T.

Every time we hear the EVO name, we picture the original HTC EVO 4G from Sprint. Fortunately, the new HTC EVO 4G LTE lives up to the EVO name with its 4.7-inch 720p display, dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, 8 megapixel camera and a long-lasting 2,000 mAh battery. Considering how great the HTC EVO 4G LTE is, Sprint’s $199.99 is more than fair, but that doesn’t mean that Amazon can’t do any better.

Samsung Galaxy S III

If you’re in the market for the best Android phone of 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S III should be at the top of your list. Samsung took the successful strategy of the Galaxy S II from last year and made improvements all around. The dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4 processor is blazing fast and it’s hard not to fall in love with the phone’s 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display. If Samsung can keep the momentum going, the Galaxy S III will be the best selling Android phone of all time.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III – WhiteBlue: $149.99


It’s hard to compete with Samsung and HTC these days, but there are still quite a few loyal Sony fans out there. Fortunately, the Sony XPERIA Ion is a solid device with a 4.65-inch 720p display, dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S3 processor, an impressive 12 megapixel camera and a uniquely designed aluminum/plastic body. The $99.99 price tag that AT&T bestowed upon the Sony XPERIA Ion is certainly reasonable, but why shop there when Amazon’s practically giving the phone away for free?
