Deal: Verizon prepaid Nokia 3 V on sale at Best Buy for just $110 ($60 off)
The Nokia 3 V, Verizon's affordable smartphone, is a rather modest device, but that shouldn't stop potential customers from checking it out. It costs less than $200 and offers decent specs, including Android 9.0 Pie right out of the box.

Verizon is selling the Nokia 3 V for $170 outright, but customers can get it for free as well, but the deal requires a new line. Best Buy, on the other hand, offers the best of both worlds: a lower price, but no requirements.

For a limited time, Nokia 3 V is available for purchase at Best Buy for just $110, so you'll be saving $60. This is a prepaid phone, so there's no need to add a new line or sign up for a new contract. The phone comes in blue color shipping is free in case you don't want to head to the nearest Best Buy store to pick it up.

Nokia 3 V is equipped with a low-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB expandable storage. Also, it sports a large 6.26-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie snapper.

It features Google Assistant support and 4G LTE connectivity, as well as extra security functions like face unlock and lock mode. Not to mention that the 4,000 mAh battery should offer up to 35 days of standby time or up to 10 hours of continuous usage time.

Still great to see HMD is expanding their presence in the U.S. by also having a smartphone available for non-GSM users. Some have complained about this not being the case, but this is evidence to the contrary. The deal with Verizon must be going well enough, as this is the second Nokia branded smartphone offered on Verizon from HMD.

Sure would be nice to have Nokia phones available for ALL carriers, and I mean the good ones, not the cheap food stamp phones. If a cheap Motorola phone can do it, then there's no reason why Nokia can't. LTE is a GSM standard, so it's erroneous to say GSM only and non GSM.

HMD’s low end smartphones are good, which is why carriers like Verizon has been offering them. Not everyone wants or needs a high end or even midrange smartphone. They just want something well built and reliable, and this is it. And with both Verizon and HMD testing the waters with each other, starting off small is business 101. And it’s obviously working, because this is the second Nokia branded smartphone that Verizon is offering. LTE being a GSM standard has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that there are GSM and non-GSM smartphone users, so it’s erroneous to even try and say so.

And for the record, LTE is used mainly for data, with carriers switching over to VoLTE, but the switch over isn’t complete, which is why there are still carriers that use CDMA, hence you have OEM’s like HMD that build specific phones for that network. LTE is a standard for wireless broadband communication for mobile devices and data terminals, BASED on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA technologies. It isn’t GSM per se, as is being erroneously alluded to. GSM is the standard that the majority of the world has agreed upon.

Oh I'm sorry I forgot you're not allowed to have an opinion on anything Nokia related without it getting questioned by some overzealous users. Just because Nokia is catering to one group doesn't mean they should overlook the other users who want a little more out of their phones. At the end of the day, LTE is still a GSM standard so there's no reason why Nokia can't offer better choices to users that want something with better specs. If Motorola can do it, so can they. End of story.

Hmm I sense some backtracking and tune changing. Can't move the goalpost back after getting cornered in the end zone. Doesn't work that way. LTE is a GSM standard.

Oh, my apologies, I forgot that you can’t make positive comments about anything Nokia related without getting it questioned by some overzealous trolls. HMD is catering to all groups, as is evident by them building specific smartphones for carriers, so to say they are not is erroneous. At the end of the day, LTE is a standard for wireless broadband communications that’s BASED on GSM. It isn’t a “GSM standard” as is being said erroneously by some. HMD is offering choices to all OEM’s, with different ranges of smartphones that can be purchased either through a carrier or unlocked. They are catering to all needs. Just because they aren’t doing it in a way that some don’t agree with, doesn’t mean they are not doing it. End of story.

Hmmm....I sense a little deflection and projection because I posted the facts about what LTE is. Can’t keep changing the facts to suit your false narrative once the facts have backed into the proverbial corner. Doesn’t work that way. LTE is a standard for wireless broadband communications that’s BASED on GSM. It isn’t a “GSM standard”.
