Still don’t know what to buy for a Christmas gift? Perhaps a smartphone will be a good idea? But, even if we decide to get one, which one to choose? Since the smartphone industry is a rapidly developing business, and today even midrangers come equipped with fast processors, powerful cameras and a 1080p display became something of a standard, the choice is so big that it is hard to pick the right one. In order to help you make a smart decision, we create the list of 5 hot phones for Christmas without contract that will make you loved one happy and won’t cost a fortune.
All the most anticipated smartphones of this year, such as the iPhone 6 or the Galaxy Note 4 are official and one by one they start to arrive at carriers’ stores. It can mean only one thing – prices of older device will be dropping. Actually, some of them already have – the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and Apple iPhone 5S just got cheaper thanks to T-Mobile recent sale.
Did your emotions cool down yet or you’re still reliving yesterday’s events? We are referring to the announcement of the duo of new iPhones 6, obviously, as it was the news of the day. Of course, the fact that the 6th generation of iPhones is now official doesn’t mean that previous models are suddenly going to disappear. They will, however, get new price tags – Apple just lowered the prices on iPhone 5S to $99 and offers iPhone 5C for free after unveiling the iPhone 6.
As most Apple products, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C weren’t cheap at launch which obviously didn’t stop the most ardent fans from buying brand new units as soon as it was possible. If for some reason you weren’t determined enough to grab your new iPhone right away and were rather waiting for the pricing to get more reasonable, now would be a great time to make the move. Why now? Because Walmart is drastically cutting its iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S prices.
Walmart lowered prices on iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and Galaxy S4 ahead of upcoming iPhone 6 and Galaxy S5
If you are planning to swing by Walmart soon, check out their latest smartphone deal especially if you are in the market for a new phone from Apple or Samsung. The retailer announced a discount on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C as well as the Galaxy S4, now offering each of the devices at a price lower than in carriers’ stores. That is nice incentive to grab one of the current flagship models before successors in the form of the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S5 arrive.
Apple has always been one of those companies that stick to their traditions. The Cupertino manufacturer is not big on surprises and most of the time you know what to expect. One new smartphone a year, steady prices, and few discounts are what distinguishes Apple from other companies. This year, however, has been different. First, Apple changed its launch pattern and released two new iPhones on the same day. Then we saw a series of discounts resulting in the high-end iPhone 5S going on sale at way cheaper price.
Walmart is getting in holiday spirit and at the same time preparing for an annual battle for customers. This time round the retailer’s chances of scoring a few more customers are quite high thanks to its new promotion on the hottest mobile devices on market. Starting tomorrow the company is significantly cutting prices of Apple products including the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and the iPad Mini giving customers the opportunity to treat yourself or your loved ones to a brand new iPhone or iPad at great price.
After Boost Mobile and US Cellular, starting this Friday, two more carriers will be offering the high-end Apple’s iPhone 5S and the mid-range iPhone 5C. On December 13th Straight Talk and Net10 will add both iPhones to their portfolio, this way joining the still expanding list of carriers offering Apple’s latest smartphones. Both, the iPhone 5S and 5C will be available with 16 GB of storage and will be priced at $649 and $549, respectively, that is $50 off the standard retail price. You will find both iPhones at Walmart online and in brick and mortar stores. The iPhone 5C will be available online only, though.
Buying phones through a carrier has undoubtedly many advantages, the biggest of which is the subsidy that lets you get the device at way cheaper price. However, there are some drawbacks too. For example, in order to buy the phone at subsidized price, the carrier requires you to sign a contract, usually for two years in the US. If you are familiar with how often new models are released, you know that two years feels like a entire century. For instance, Apple launches new iPhones each year, so it would be a shame if you had to wait twice that long to upgrade your device.

A copy of this year’s offers reveals impressive discounts especially if you are thinking about grabbing a new iPad. This year Target prepared a surprise for its customers. Black Friday sales will actually begin at 8 PM Thanksgiving evening and will last until 11 PM Friday night.
As expected, today Boost Mobile started selling the iPhone 5S and 5C. Both phones are available through the carrier’s online store as well as retail stores.

Cricket has just welcomed the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in its portfolio becoming the last of the wireless carriers to start offering Apple’s latest smartphones. The new iPhones are up for grabs from Cricket retail stores or via Cricket’s web site. Both phones are priced lower than expected, selling below their full retail price. The Apple’s flagship iPhone 5S costs $599.99, while the iPhone 5C, also referred to as „budget” iPhone, will set you back $499.99.
Earlier this month we reported that Boost Mobile finally might start selling iPhones, and not just any iPhones, but the latest offerings from Apple, the iPhone 5S and 5C. The news was based on a Tweek coming from @evleaks that included two adds for the phones and at that time was verified neither by Boost Mobile, nor by Apple. If you were wondering if the info was legit, we can tell you that it is. The carrier has confirmed that both the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available for purchase starting November 8th.
Boost Mobile has been one of the few US carriers that did not have any Apple iPhones in the offer. This may change soon, though. It has been rumored since April that Boost Mobile will be adding an iPhone to its roster some time in the third quarter of this year. The third quarter has come and gone and there is still no sign of any iPhone on Boost Mobile, but let’s not lose hope. It appears that the rumor was true after all.
A coupe days ago we shared with you that the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were scheduled for launch on Virgin Mobile prepaid network on October 1st. As planned, both devices are now available for purchase from the carrier. As expected, the Apple iPhone 5S is priced the same level as Apple’s previous flagship smartphone. The price of the handset starts at $549.99 for the 16 GB model and goes up to $649.99 and $749.99 for the 32 GB and 64 GB variants, respectively. Note that the last two models are available only via Virgin Mobile’s online store.
Apple’s latest offerings, the flagship iPhone 5S and the budget iPhone 5C, will soon be available from Virgin Mobile. The carrier confirmed via Twitter that both devices will go on sale on October 1st. With this announcement, Virgin Mobile entered the list of carriers to start offering both iPhones on that particular day in an attempt of ” a coordinated expansion of availability”, even though the stocks of the iPhone 5S are running low at the moment.
There are many folks out there who are willing to make many sacrifices to get their hands on a brand new iPhone 5S as soon as it arrives at the store. Those brave souls do not fear waiting long hours in huge lines knowing that at the end of the day they will go to bed with their dream phone quietly resting on the bedside table. And then they are those who prefer to buy their iPhone 5S while comfortably sitting on the couch in their houses, even if it means waiting weeks for it to be delivered.
The gold color option offered by Apple with its new iPhone 5s certainly catches the eyes, but can you imagine the phone coated in actual gold? London-based Goldgenie had that idea and is offering the iPhone 5s in gold, rose gold and platinum. The device indeed does look stunning but paying for it would take a lot of courage. The cheapest model costs £1,780, which is an equivalent of $2,850. If you want more luxury and storage, the price will go up to a whopping $4,400.
Today Apple started offering its the most recent smartphone, the iPhone 5s. As you can imagine, line in front of Apple stores and retail outlets were enormous. Besides the obvious advantage of being among the first people in the world to become the proud owners of the latest iPhone, this method of shopping has its drawbacks. It is reserved for the brave and strong because it involves a lot of waiting, running, pushing and more waiting. Luckily, there is an easier way to purchase the device. Simply choose your favorite carrier and after a few clicks, the iPhone 5s will be yours.
Ten days after official announcement, both Apple’s new devices, the flagship iPhone 5s and the budget iPhone 5c, are now available for purchase from Apple’s stores around the world and various retail outlets.

The phones hit the stores across the US and in all major Apple markets in Europe and in Asia. It is predicted that this year’s launch will be the biggest ever, because for the first the new iteration of iPhone goes on sale in China from day one.
