Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II is slightly cheaper at Wirefly
Available to order at Verizon since yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy Note II costs $299.99 on contract, or $699.99 sans agreement. If that’s too much for you, Wirefly is offering the handset for slightly less: $279.99 (also on contract, of course).
And while this isn’t a deal as great as the one Amazon is offering on AT&T’s Galaxy Note II ($179.99 on contract), it will still save you $20.
Obviously, Wirefly has Verizon’s Note II in both color versions: white (here) and grey (here), and both cost $279.99. The real question, however, is: why would you get the Galaxy Note II, when you can buy HTC’s Droid DNA (which is also a phablet, but has a 5 inch 1080p display) for only $199.99 on contract? For Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, or all those S-Pen-optimized apps? Maybe, but still – the Droid DNA is a better option in my opinion.
Apart from Verizon and AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular are also offering the Galaxy Note II in the US. Verizon was the last to launch it, in case you have not noticed.
Until now, Samsung sold over 5 million Galaxy Note II units around the world. The device was first launched in September, being Samsung’s first to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one.
