T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Avant brings capable smartphone to your pocket for just over $200

Not everyone needs a super phone with all the latest high-tech gizmos stuffed inside. As nice as those phones are, they often come with hefty price tags that aren’t fit for every budget (or that are simply overkill for some folks’ needs). T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Avant launches today to serve those who fit into those categories.

The device comes in at $209 off-contract, and can be had for $0 down and $9 per month on T-Mobile’s Simple Choice payment plans. For that money, you’re getting a 4.5-inch display with 960 x 540 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, NFC, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi N and more.

Carriers are beginning to see the benefit of entry-level and mid-range smartphones again, a renaissance of sorts that seems to have come thanks to the success of phones like the super-cheap Moto G. It seemed most carriers and OEMs settled with the “high-end or nothing” approach for the past couple of years, but that obviously isn’t the case at this point. You can order the Galaxy Avant from T-Mobile’s site right now, and we’d love to hear from you if you decide to do that!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  9. Saw this on Tmobiles website and went out at lunch and got one of these phones for my 7 year old son. I wanted him to have a decent phone to call or text me and my wife. I havent used it much yet. So far seems good for what he needs. I like the fact it has decent specs and is 4.5″. He has small pockets and I wanted him to have a semi decent phone. $216 is a lot better than 400 or 500 for a phone. Now if I could just find a case for the darn thing.

  10. Samsung is going to launch is another budget friendly Android smart phone which looks similar to Samsung Galaxy S Duos.
