Grab the Nokia 5.3 and Nokia 2.3 for just $120 and $100 respectively during Black Friday sales
Black Friday season is now at full steam. While this year has been unusual in more than one way, times like these show that Holiday purchases are very much alive and well, even considering how different they have been compared to last year taking in mind the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And if you were waiting on amazing deals on budget smartphones that will do the job on a budget, then you’ve come to the right place. Both the Nokia 5.3 and the Nokia 2.3, two budget devices from HMD, have some juicy discounts available right now.
The Nokia 5.3 is the better device out of the two, as you might be guessing by the name. It has a Snapdragon 665 processor which, while lacking features such as 5G and definitely not sitting at the top of mid-range performance anymore, it’s still sure to fit the bill for anyone looking for a cheap smartphone that will perform well and not break the bank. It has a big 6.5-inch 720p display, a 13MP rear camera, and honest-to-Google stock Android 10 for a snappy and clean overall performance.
There’s a lot of stuff that we love about Nokia, but the thing that you should be loving about this particular device is its price. While the 64GB version normally retails for roughly $200, you can grab the device at Best Buy right now for a dirt-cheap $120. That’s an amazing 40% discount on a device that was already well priced—I’ve even praised the device’s pricing and bang-for-the-buck in previous articles.
This is also an unlocked phone, and it shouldn’t be much of a hassle to get it activated on your carrier of choice.
Want something that falls even cheaper? Then the Nokia 2.3 might be your device of choice. This is definitely not the device you should look for if you’re looking for specs: it has a MediaTek Helio A22 that should perform just well for most people but falls short compared to other offerings. What’s interesting about this phone is that it features a mostly modern design with a 6.2-inch 720p panel, stock Android 10 just like other Nokia offerings, and a far-from-amazing, yet serviceable dual camera.
But the USP here is that it is dirt cheap. The phone normally retails for $130, but right now, you can grab it for just $100 at Target. Granted, it’s just a 24% discount and far from the savings percentage that the Nokia 5.3 is offering right now. But if you just have $100 for a phone and don’t want, or can’t, go any higher, then this might be very well your best choice. This device is also unlocked, meaning that you can activate it on any carrier you want.
Both of these sales will be available for a limited time, so be sure to check them out now if you want to take advantage of this deal! If you want to go even lower, there is also the Nokia 1.3 at just $30!
