Results: would you buy a discounted phone if the retailer uses it to serve you regular ads in exchange?
Prime phones are usually midrangers, which you can buy at a $30 - $180 discount, depending on the phone, but there's a catch. If you get one of these devices, you will also have to endure Amazon ads and offers popping up on your lockscreen at all times. That's right, no more pictures of your dog or your cousin's toddler — your lockscreen is now Amazon's personal “your ad here” spot.
To be completely fair, you can spend an extra $50 a few months down the line and remove said ads. And the phones come with a bunch of Amazon ads pre-installed, but those should come in handy if you are, in fact, a regular Amazon customer (and if you are subscribed to Prime, you most probably are). But we thought we'd ask you — is “selling out” your lockscreen worth a discounted phone? Would you ever consider the option, or would you feel violated? Here are the poll results!
