One thing’s for sure in the US smartphone space: all carriers seem to have agreed on $199.99 being the price for any high-end device. With very few more expensive exceptions, all top of the line smartphones that have been launched in the last few months have had that price point as their recommended retail price.
And carriers generally stick with it, only making phones cheaper once they’re about to be replaced and/or discontinued. This is where third party retailers come in – they sometimes have special offers at special prices.
So if you’ve always wanted a top-spec smartphone but didn’t want to shell out $200 for it, now may be the time for you to get in the game.
