Verizon's Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is now cheaper than the Galaxy A51 5G
What is Verizon's cheapest 5G-enabled smartphone? If you're thinking of answering the recently released Galaxy A51 5G UW, then you're technically correct. After all, the 6.5-inch mid-ranger costs $549.99, compared to the slightly larger Galaxy A71 5G UW, which would typically set you back $649.99, and the significantly more powerful $800 OnePlus 8 5G UW.

But Samsung's 6.7-inch Galaxy A71 5G, which is also not very old, having made its commercial debut on the nation's largest mobile network operator about a month ago, can already be purchased at a huge discount. We're talking a whopping $409.99 slashed off the aforementioned $649.99 MSRP with a new line of service.

Said line will need to be activated on an Above, Beyond, Do, Play, or Get Unlimited plan, but otherwise, there are essentially no strings attached and no special requirements you have to meet to score the $409.99 credit. This will be applied to your account over a period of two years, mind you, but that doesn't mean you need to sign up for a monthly installment plan.

An outright purchase will also do if you don't mind paying the full 650 bucks upfront. Better yet, you can get a $150 gift card, complimentary Verizon Stream TV device, Echo Dot, and Amazon Smart Plug as well if you switch from a different carrier, which basically means the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G UW will be yours at absolutely no charge when considering all those freebies.

Even at $10 a month after your bill credits, or $240 all in all, this is an incredibly compelling handset, sporting a beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display with a trendy hole punch design while packing a more than reasonably powerful Snapdragon 765 processor, as well as 8 gigs of memory, 128 gigs of internal storage space, and a hefty 4,500mAh battery.

The quadruple rear-facing camera system is also pretty amazing for this price bracket, and in case you're wondering, UW stands for Ultra Wideband, which just so happens to be the nation's fastest 5G network... by a landslide. Too bad the blazing fast signal is so absurdly hard to acquire even in cities technically supporting Verizon's next-gen mobile network.
