Looking for a flagship smartphone without the flagship price? Look no further than RadioShack right now, which is currently offering Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 Android smartphone for $79.99 with a new two-year contract. That’s a steep discount from the $199.99 price the phone fetched when it first went on sale back in April. Patience certainly pays off – the phone has been on sale for fewer than two months and it’s already more than half off.
We didn’t spot any secret catches in the fine print on RadioShack’s site, so you should be fairly safe in picking one up without any issues save for a standard activation fee. The only drawback for some consumers is that RadioShack isn’t offering the sale to T-Mobile customers, just to folks who are looking for an AT&T, Sprint or Verizon unit on contract. Off contract, the device is still going to run you as much as $799.99.
The Galaxy S5 is currently one of our top choices for new smartphones, right up there with the HTC One (M8). If you’re spending a lot of time near water this summer the S5 could be a pretty good choice, too, since it’s water and dust resistant and can easily survive a quick dip in the pool. Hit the source to take advantage of the deal.
