Big-battery Nokia 2 scores $14 discount at B&H Photo Video, fetching a measly $85 now
While finding a good, even great unlocked Android smartphone at anywhere between $150 and $250 is relatively easy if you know what to look for and where, sub-$100 handsets are an entirely different story.

Google’s Android Go program is a pretty safe bet, as long as you can live with a few... dozen compromises, but the non-Go Nokia 2 may well be the best ultra-low-cost mobile device officially available stateside.

Don’t get us wrong, the October 2017-unveiled 5-incher is far from perfect. But if you hurry, you can purchase it from B&H Photo Video at a ridiculously affordable $85 with full 4G LTE support for GSM networks nationwide, AT&T and T-Mobile included.

The retailer only has a “limited supply” available at this price, marked down from a $99 MSRP, and at the time of writing, inventory seems to be rather tight, with 7 to 10 business days required to process any new orders, but more units “on the way.”

We’d be remiss not to mention the Nokia 2 actually fetched 5 bucks less at one point a few months back, currently selling for a full $99.99 however through both Amazon and Best Buy. Bizarrely enough, Amazon still has a separate $84.99 listing, needing between one and three months to deliver phones at that heavily discounted price though.

It’s obviously not worth waiting that long for additional $5 savings, especially as B&H lists the white model as discontinued. You can only get the $85 Nokia 2 in black therefore, powered by a gargantuan 4,100 mAh battery, as well as a modest Snapdragon 212 processor and 1GB RAM.

Technically, this is not an Android Go phone, but you are nonetheless promised a “pure, secure and up-to-date” software experience, with a stable Oreo update presumably right around the corner, and yes, even Pie goodies on the table for further down the line.
