Now that thedust has settled, leaving behind and , you may find yourself wondering what to buy right now. As always, I'm a strong proponent of choosing last year's model, especially when you can get it with a full warranty and pristine battery -- and still save a bundle.
Exhibit A: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Cheapskate readers can get awith promo code CNETGLXY. That's the lowest price I've seen, and a full $150 below an Amazon deal that ran last month. (Currently the S10E sells just about everywhere for $600.) It's available in black or white.
Despite the "open-box (retail)" designation, these are new, not refurbished. You get all the original materials (including user guide, AKG earbuds and so on) and a full one-year Samsung warranty.
OK, but the S10E? Surely that letter tacked onto the end is equivalent to "lite," right? Actually, this model has the same processor and camera as the S10, and in fact the S10E's "fingerprint reader and flat screen solve minor problems with the pricier S10 and S10 Plus."
That's according to Jessica Dolcourt's, which is required reading if you're thinking about this phone. Interestingly, although she actually liked it better than the S10 and S10 Plus in some respects, she concluded it "couldn't beat the $550 price." Of course, that was then. (Just to complicate matters, .)
These won't last long at $400. If you want a flagship Galaxy phone for $350 less than usual, I highly recommend grabbing one before they're gone.
