Everybody wants a 4G-capable phone. That’s a given. The only issue is that, like all new technology, they cost a pretty penny, especially from good ol’ Big Red. As in, way more than we’re used to seeing on any smartphone (most high-end handsets cost around $200). Luckily, Target has stepped in to alleviate some of the cost on at least two 4G LTE-capable phones, offering the LG Revolution and the Samsung Droid Charge online for way below what Verizon’s asking.
The Revolution currently costs $249.99 on a new two-year contract, and the Droid Charge has a price tag of $299.99 with the same two-year commitment. From Verizon, that is. Over at Target, you can snag the Android 2.2 Froyo-powered Revolution for just $49.99 with a new contract. Yes, you read correctly. You can get the Revolution for $50 and snag a $25 gift card to the Android Market free of charge, by ordering through Target.
The Samsung Droid Charge also gets a price cut from Target, albeit a lesser one than the Revolution. For $149.99, you can buy the Samsung Droid Charge (with a new two-year contract, of course) from Target. That’s half what you’ll pay over at Big Red, and for the specs on this phone, it’s a helluva deal. We’re talking a 1Ghz Hummingbird processor underneath Android 2.2 Froyo (upgradable to 2.3 Gingerbread), 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and an 8-megapixel camera.
Whether you’re renewing a contract or jumping ship to Verizon, if you’re interested you should definitely visit Target.com and get the wallet-friendly versions of some of our favorite phones: the LG Revolution and the Samsung Droid Charge.
