This year's Cyber Monday has gone and passed, but apparently not for Walmart. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Walmart's cell phone brand Straight Talk is still offering big discounts for a number of smartphones.
Apple's iPhone 5C, one of last year's most in-demand devices and still selling quite well this year, is being offered at a price of $299. For a device of this quality, $299 is a very good deal, especially when you consider that the recently released iPhone 6 Plus is priced at $749 at Walmart.
Not to be left out are choice Samsung Galaxy devices that are also offered at significantly discounted prices. The Samsung Galaxy S4 for instance is currently being sold at only $249. That is a full $200 off the device's normal List Price.
Even better is Walmart's current offer for the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device is now priced at only $149. If you purchase this smartphone from Walmart now, you get to enjoy savings of almost $300.
Like Apple's iPhone 5C, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was a hit last year. But since then, both smartphones have been eclipsed by their successors the iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S5, respectively. That is not to say that one can not enjoy them while they are still widely available.
Straight Talk's Samsung Galaxy S4 phone comes preinstalled with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. But it should be easy to update it to Android 4.4 KitKat once you've purchased it from Walmart. Samsung has yet to officially announce a release date for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, but it should be any day now.
All of the smartphones mentioned above are being offered outright, all set for a Straight Talk prepaid SIM card. Staying true to its brand name, Straight Talk opts to offer plans with fairly straightforward inclusions with a monthly fee of either $45 or $60.
The $45 per month Straight Talk plan already includes unlimited calls and text messaging, as well as 3 gigabytes of full speed 4G LTE data.
As for the $60 per month Straight Talk plan, it offers the same unlimited calls, unlimited text messaging and 3 gigabytes of full speed 4G LTE data, but with additional international calls to a number of countries outside the United States and a special 400 minutes of calls to Mexico.
