Deal: Samsung's overpriced quad-camera smartphone gets a huge discount in the US
First impression matters but substance has the final word. Samsung wanted to be the first company to launch a quad-camera smartphone on the market, but even though it succeeded, the Galaxy A9 (2018) feels like a rushed product.

Besides the fact that its cameras don't offer the level of quality one would expect from a camera-centric phone, Samsung has decided to price the phone very close to some of the top-tier handsets available on the market at that time.

For $600, you can easily buy a flagship smartphone like the Nokia 9 PureView, or wait for a sale and grab any of Samsung's last year high-end devices. Specs-wise, the Galaxy A9 (2018) is a pure mid-range phone, so its only selling point would be the four cameras on the back.

Apparently, there's a sale in the United States which brings the phone to a more decent price, so if you've been eyeing the world's first quad-camera smartphone, you might want to check these out.

Firstly, there's Amazon that has the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) on discount by $200 but does not offer a warranty. Also, you can grab one from B&H, but that's just $100 off, although it includes a warranty.

Finally, eBay seller never-msrp has the phone on sale for just $400 in black, blue, and pink. All phones come unlocked and only work with GSM carriers in the US like AT&T and T-Mobile.

If it we're an iPhone with a discount you would never see it be referred to as "Apple's overpriced iPhone"

Dont know why haters are quick to jump and get Apple into this. As yhe article stated, for $600 you could get a Nokia Pureview which greatly superior. Secondly, even for $400, you end up getting SD 660 phone. For $200, Xiomi is giving a SD 675 phone. So this phone is still over priced. If I love Samsung, I will rather but a S9 from ebay for around $400. This is value.
