HTC EVO 3D and Motorola PHOTON 4G $99 at Amazon with free activation until tomorrow

HTC EVO 3D and Motorola PHOTON 4G $99 at Amazon with free activation until tomorrow
Two of the best Android handsets money can currently buy in the US - the HTC EVO 3D and the Motorola PHOTON 4G - got lowered to $99 on Amazon for new contracts.

What's more, until midnight today, your activation fee for Sprint is waived as well, which makes the deal $36 sweeter.

We can't argue with the phrase that good things come to those who wait, but in this case you might have to wait for the holiday season for these two handsets to become free on contract, so if you have been eying one of them, now might be the time to pull the trigger.

Just a reminder, the HTC EVO 3D is the first 3D-capable Android handset to hit the US shores, carries a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and a 4.3" qHD display with true RGB matrix. The Motorola PHOTON 4G, on the other hand, also sports a dual-core chipset and 4.3" qHD screen, and we found its camera and battery life to be a tad better than the EVO 3D's.

the gs2 and nexus prime will kill these 2 phones. Thank goodness I waited and not get the evo 3d as many have reported it having weak signals and blackout screen.

kill them? thats funny if you think the gs2 and nexus prime wont have problems. there is pages of issues with the gs2 now. i have a evo3d. and wouldnt trade it for a gs2 for anything. i hate samsung, there cheap! there ui sucks. my evo3d has no signal problems i tested against my old moto flip phone. also never had blackout screen. thats ok if you try justifying why you didnt get the phone.

Well you wait that is fine, I have had my HTC Evo 3D since June 24th & I have had no problems. No signal & blackout screen problems at all. I have my device rooted & overclocked to 1.8 GHz & it's fast as cheetah! When you get your Samsung Galaxy S II there will be quad-cores just around the corner in just a few VERY short months. So when you finally start getting used to your dual-core phone I will be on a quad-core phone. So have fun, because I have been having fun & will be having more fun in the future with quad-core phones! lol
