Deal: Save a whopping $200 on the Nokia 9 PureView at Best Buy
HMD's top-of-the-line smartphone, the Nokia 9 PureView is available for purchase in the United States at various retailers, but no carrier in the country sells it sadly. However, you can save a lot of money if you're willing to activate your newly acquired Nokia 9 PureView with a certain carrier.

Typically selling for $700, the Nokia 9 PureView is now available for just $450, a killer deal since this is truly a flagship smartphone with a decent camera. The catch is that you'll have to activate the phone with AT&T the same day you buy it.

But let's say you don't want to activate the phone on AT&T's network, but still, want the Nokia 9 PureView. In that case, you'll have to come up with $500 upfront, which is still a great deal if you ask us.

Keep in mind though that while the Nokia 9 PureView comes unlocked, the phone will not work with Sprint, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, or any other CDMA network in the country, so AT&T or T-Mobile are your only options from the big four.

Honestly though I think that should have been the price from the get go if you ask me.

This deal is still good if one can deal with the caveat, and the regular price is better than overpriced flagships like the Pixels.

I rather spend a little more and get a Pixel because at least it will be unlocked for ALL carriers and the camera won't be terrible like the Pureview is at the moment where it's still dealing with multiple issues that some overzealous fanboys deny.

Killer price for this underrated beauty, with the caveat being that you only get the deal by activating a new line of service with AT&T. The latest update has addressed the few known issues (FPS still isn't great), but the processing time of the photos has been cut down. Those of us that own one and use it daily know first-hand just how beautiful the photos are coming from N9PV. It really gets better with the updates, and isn't famous for breaking things with the updates like Google is, thank God. And hey, even though you gotta sign with AT&T, this deal sure beats the one that Sprint was offering for the Pixel 3A line, lol.

Hmm if a phone was truly amazing and an "underrated beauty" would it warrant mentioning the Google Pixel each and every time? Is it just that the Pixel phones are unlocked for ALL carriers or is it because they still have the best camera of any phone available without the need for a gimmick setup? Or is it simply just sour grapes? There's no underrating something that's poorly rated feedback wise.

So instead of responding to me directly, you take potshots. Don't say you're not, because you're quoting parts of my comment. If you really thought that the Pixel 3A XL was the "best phone ever", would you really need to keep trying to convince yourself and others of that by constantly yelling it? If you were so confident in your purchase of one, would you really need to keep attacking other OEM's smartphones like BlackBerry, LG, and Nokia Branded smartphones? Pixels have the lost the honor of having the best cameras on a smartphone a long time ago. And the Pixel 3A XL isn't as good as it's bigger counterpart in low light or video recording. So is it sour grapes when you always bash the Nokia 9 Pureview? Is it because the camera set up allows it to do things the Pixels can't? Is it because their photos look more natural to than the Pixels, or is it because the design quality puts all the Pixels combined to shame? Maybe it's because the updates that HMD pushes to it's smartphones don't break other things near as much as when Google pushes updates to the Pixels. Or is it a combination of everything I said that has you constantly complaining about phones you've never owned? It's bashing if what you are saying about the crappy software well documented facts.

Or maybe that's just your guilty conscience talking again. Stop getting so paranoid and defensive. If I really wanted to call you out, I would have done so. Lol I don't need to convince myself and others. That's reflected in the many reviews and positive feedback people have provided. PA even gave it a 9/10. What did the Pureview get again? I'm not attacking OEMs, but thanks for once again confirming that you are a hypocrite because that's exactly what you are doing right now but you'll try to hide behind your "documented" facts and your anecdotal cop out when someone tells you otherwise. You have been trying to justify your own device since the Pureview was first announced and it's hilarious watching you scramble trying so hard to sell the Pureview. Does Nokia have you on payroll or anything? I can probably already expect your usual regurgitated response asking me the same thing with Google and my response would be, "Who wouldn't?" I've gotten multiple security updates with no issues at all, but I know you love to talk out of your rear end.
