Verizon and AT&T bring the snazzy Samsung Galaxy A10e down to $0 with monthly installments
Three of these snazzy mid-rangers have been picked up by a host of major US wireless service providers, one of which was discounted to a measly $5 a month at Verizon not long ago, while another one is currently available free of charge from both Big Red and AT&T. The Galaxy A10e normally costs between $180 and $210 outright, but with a new line of service and a device payment plan, you can bring that price all the way down to $0.
There are no strings attached (apart from the two aforementioned conditions), no contractual obligations (technically), and obviously, no trade-ins required. You just have to agree to a 24-month Verizon installment plan or a 30-month AT&T Next arrangement and be fine with your discount offered in the form of bill credits.
Given its typical retail price, you shouldn't be surprised to hear the spec sheet of the 5.8-inch A10e is nothing to write home about. But the handset arguably looks sleeker than your standard budget champion, with a so-called Infinity-V display in tow, while packing a respectable octa-core Exynos 7884 processor and 3,000mAh battery capacity.
At least at Verizon, the Samsung Galaxy A10e goes directly up against the Moto E6, which is also available for free at the time of this writing with a terribly outdated design, small 5.45-inch screen, and modest Snapdragon 430 SoC but a massive 4,000mAh battery offsetting (some of) its glaring flaws. How about it, bargain hunters, which one of these two looks more attractive at $0?
