One of my favorite topics to write about is unlocked Android smartphones. As you readers become more informed as to the real price of smartphones, you need to consider your options for devices that are available to you.
While we do have many options for unlocked smartphones in the U.S., countries like China have far more and they are extremely well priced. I look for unlocked smartphones almost every night(yeah I need a life), so that I can help inform you of the latest and greatest deals. You won’t find these deals from sources like Target or Best Buy, instead they are from third party sites who sell direct from China. And I personally place orders from each company to assure you that you can trust them with your money too.
The latest deal I found is for the unlocked UMI ROME 5.5″ Android 5.1 Lollipop smartphone from banggood.com. The UMI ROME isn’t a brand you’ve likely heard of before, but it should be on your radar because the ROME is just $113.99 right now for a limited time. It comes with an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of memory and a very premium HD AMOLED display. AMOLED displays are usually only found on devices over $400 like the Samsung Galaxy line or the Nexus 6P and Nexus 6. So to find an AMOLED display on a display priced less than $150 is a needle in a haystack.
The UMI ROME is a GSM only phone so it will work on networks like T-Mobile and AT&T. Again let me reiterate that the UMI ROME will only cost you $113.99 with free shipping and a 72-hour price match guarantee. Find it cheaper somewhere else and Bang Good will refund the price difference.
