Whether you’re someone who is prone to accidents or just prefers to keep things simple, an affordable smartphone is often the way to go. They’re a great alternative to the major name brands, and will often offer all of the same features that you’d expect in a high-tech device.
The UMIDIGI A9 Cell Phone is one of several cell phone models currently on sale as part of Amazon’s current daily deal. Ringing in at just $160, it’s a great choice if you’re looking for an affordable cell phone that doesn’t compromise on functionality.
Running on the Android 11 operating system, it features a large 6.53” screen for brilliant viewing. The phone comes with 64GB of built-in memory and supports up to 256GB of extra memory, allowing you to store every important moment.
This phone also features top of the line photography capabilities, including an ultra wide AI triple lens camera, a front-facing camera, night mode settings, and portrait mode with depth lens.
‘Great smartphone for a cheap price!’
Amazon shoppers have been impressed with this ultra-affordable smartphone that holds its own against pricy competitors. It has earned a 4.1-star rating from nearly 200 customer reviews, earning top marks for its battery life and privacy features like fingerprint sensors and facial recognition.
One reviewer called the UMIDIGI A9 Cell Phone a “great smartphone for a cheap price.” They went on to say that they purchased it for their “a technology rookie,” who was still able to use the phone “flawlessly with no problems.”
Another reviewer shared that this phone’s picture and sound quality are “excellent,” making it a great choice for “streaming and everyday use.” It’s also been called “exceptional value,” especially when you can snag it on sale.
Some reviewers have noted that certain features can slow down this phone, which is “not that great for app games.” However, others have noted that it does work well for “basic use” like calling and text messages.
In case the UMIDIGI A9 Cell Phone doesn’t seem like the right fit for your lifestyle, you can shop more on-sale models from the brand until tonight.
