Deal: who needs midrangers when new Galaxy S9 hits a sub-$500 price on Amazon

That's the latest deal for the Galaxy S9 on Amazon, where you can now get the unlocked model, ready for any US carrier SIM card, for just $488. The compact, premium-built phone is still a very powerful device with dual-aperture camera, 10nm Snapdragon processor, and the newest Android 9 Pie with Samsung's one-hand-usage-friendly One UI.
What's more, it's not some "renewed" unit with generic accessories, but a fully-fledged unlocked model with valid US warranty, and that's a lot these days when it comes to affordable phones sold by Amazon.
Granted, there is no trendy dual camera set, and this price is only for the black model, but the blue and lilac ones are just a few dollars more, and still keep the price of this premium phone below $500, and, if you settle for the "renewed" offer, it can go below $400 even.
- Display 5.8" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 256 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(31h talk time)

Just be because Samsung and apple are selling 900$ phones that doesn't mean 500$ is a midranger, OnePlus has the best hardware in the market, yet it costs 500$. It is a high-end phone that beats the s9 and iPhones in most day to day usage. Would you then consider it a mid range?

Who needs S9 with last year's chipset And limited camera experience when one can have brand new Xiaomi MI 9 for same price, with SD855 and 3 rear cameras? Maybe that is why S9 price fallen so low, there is no place on market for it even for such a low price when phones like MI 9 exist.
