Listen up! With the Black Friday sales looming over the horizon you need to hold on a little longer before getting Android products. Just wait. No matter how badly you need that new phone or tablet, you might regret it if you don’t.
Retailers may be dangling some seemingly low prices in your face, you may think you’re in for a bargain. But apparently they’re nothing compared to what is coming!! After all, Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and it’s only 3 weeks away.
Here are ten Android devices whose prices will see huge discounts for Black Friday 2014.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Currently available for: $470 Factory Unlocked International Version 32GB: $100 with Verizon and Sprint Contracts: $150 with AT&T
Why should you get it: The Note 3 may be an older model, but it’s still relevant. It has full HD display that is not going to be hugely draining of your battery life, also it has 3GB of RAM, that’s still the highest that smartphones have ever gone to.
How low can we expect it to go: eBay has an ongoing deal for the unlocked variant, however it is speculated that Amazon lower its prices to $300.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Available for $505 Unlocked: $80 through AT&T, Sprint and Verizon contracts.
The S5 is newer than the S3 but due to the lack of promotions, people have forgotten about it. However, if the price is right maybe it will be remembered again? Some new found appreciation for its quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 16 megapixel camera and its water resistant exterior.
The S5 may see prices as low as $350 unlocked!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
Starting at $156 for the 7-inch; $219 for the 8-inch; $280 for the 10-inch. They’re light, sleek and are sure to see a price drop on Black Friday.
It’s not out of the question to see the 7-inch for $100, $200 for the 8-inch and $250 for the 10-inch.
Moto X (original)
Starting at $280 unlocked. The Moto X has a healthy battery life and 2 GB of RAM. Unlocked it could be as low as $200.
Sony Xperia z1 Compact
This one starts at $365 unlocked, with a 4.3 inch screen and a 20.7 megapixel camera, it’s a pretty decent phone. The chances of it dropping below $300 are slim, however if you see it do so, grab it now!
HTC One M8
Going at $698 factory unlocked, the M8 is a little pricy so there is a good chance that its price will get massively discounted. Maybe $500 tops outright for this sleek and elegant new toy.
LG/Google Nexus 5
Currently selling for $342 factory unlocked. Google insists that the launch of the new N6 will not have a great impact on the sales for the N5 because both are so different. With a 5-inch full HD screen and a quad core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, slashing the price on this one pay bring it back into the interest of those Black Friday shoppers who have long since forgotten the Nexus 5.
Asus/Google Nexus 7
For $176 you can buy the 16 GB version, for $239 the 32 GB. Hopefully to see decreases to $150 and $200 respectively, it has an amazing 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution LCD screen and with Lollipop incoming this nifty product is a good one to look out for!
LG G Pad 8.3
It’s currently selling for $249 with Wi-Fi,$99 under Verizon and LTE contracts and for $300 outright on Big Red. It’s not the most modern product out on the market but it’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 SoC can hold its own in the world of gaming or even just web browsing. This may or may not go for $200 outright, check Amazon.
Huawei Ascend Mate 2
Retailing for $300 factory unlocked with US warranty. With a 6.1-inch screen with 720 pixels of screen resolution, 4G LTE connectivity, 2 GB of RAM, this is a great new toy if the price is slashed to $250.
Keep your eyes peeled for more deals, they will most definitely be released as Black Friday approaches.
