The best cheap phone deal we've seen so far this Prime Day
Not only is this our pick of the cheap phone deals this Prime Day, but it’s one of the best deals overall: right now at Amazon, the budget Nokia G22 is going for an eye-boggling £115. That’s down from its average price of £136 on the site, making it the cheapest it’s ever been. You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to take advantage of this outrageous offer, but the tech giant is offering a generous free 30-day trial to those who haven’t already signed up.
And it’s really worth doing so: in our four-star Nokia G22 review, we singled out the cheap handset’s repairability (not always a given with modern phones), battery boost to 19hrs 28mins in our test and improvement to the display. Naturally, you’re not going to get lightning-quick performance for a fraction over £100, but it’s still faster than its predecessor and the camera performs well in good light.
There’s a choice of two colours to pick from this Amazon Prime Day: the poetically named Meteor Grey (a dark grey) and the eye-catching Lagoon Blue, which catches the light nicely. You also get a microSD slot to expand the internal storage up to a whopping 2TB, as well as 4GB of RAM. Note that it’s not compatible with 5G, though.
Again, you’ll have to be speedy because Amazon Prime Day will only last until midnight on 12 July 2023. We wouldn’t be surprised if a phone this cheap sells out way in advance of that deadline, though, so it’s doubly important that you get in there soon.
If this cheap smartphone deal has put you in a money-saving mood, the best place to find the biggest bargains this Amazon Prime Day is our main Prime Day deals hub, which we’ll be constantly updating throughout the sales period. Happy shopping!
