Smartphone deals: The best bargains on unlocked smartphones under $200

Deal Score0

Though you could pay as much as $949 for the iPhone 12 or as much as $949.99 for the Galaxy S20, you don’t have to spend that much to get a decent smartphone. And though many cell phone providers such as Verizon and T-Mobile, (and Costco, we might add), offer big discounts on the latest smartphones, these deals are often tied to monthly installment plans.

With all the great options out there for smartphones, there’s really no need to pay big bucks. One of Thegadgetlocker’s favorites is the Moto G family of smartphones, which have robust features and typically work on all four major carriers! Also, Google recently released the Pixel 4a which can be ordered for $349.

If stashing some cash is more your thing instead of buying the latest and greatest, here are a few smartphones that’ll get the job done, all under $200. Note that due to variable or dynamic pricing, prices on these phones may fluctuate. See more deals on refurbished unlocked smartphones at eBay here! Remember to only buy from eBay sellers with high positive feedback scores and a generous return policy.
