Samsung Galaxy S10e ($499-$749): Great bang-for-your buck from Samsung.
If you want a name-brand flagship for a discount price, the Samsung Galaxy S10e is your best bet. Now that it’s been out for a few months, it’s frequently discounted from its $749.99 suggested retail price. Unlike a lot of iPhone deals, though, you don’t need to add a new line or buy multiple phones to get a good price. Walmart, for instance, is currently selling the S10e for $499 if you get the pink or white one or $599 if you want blue or black.
For that price, you get the latest processor, 128GB of storage, a beautiful top-notch screen and great cameras. Plus, you get full IP68 water resistance and wireless charging. Sure, you may not get an in-display fingerprint reader, it’s on the side of the phone instead, but the S10e is otherwise packed with every feature you’d expect of a flagship phone in 2019.
