On average, we Germans buy a new mobile phone every two and a half years. Amazon Prime Day offers the opportunity to save money when buying a mobile phone. On Amazon Prime Day, the online mail order company is offering a large number of smartphones at reduced prices. However, the range is large and many consumers find it difficult to keep track of the numerous providers and models.

Apple has been a pioneer in the mobile communications industry since 2007. The company decisively shaped the market with the introduction of the iPhone. Many smartphone users still swear by the cell phones of the American company.

The Apple iPhones impress with their modern design and the unique compatibility of Apple products with each other. As a rule, however, the customer has to dig much deeper into their pockets with Apple smartphones than with models from other suppliers.

Good deals can also be spotted for smartphones from Samsung. Various models are currently significantly cheaper on Amazon, among other things you can save a lot with these smartphones today:

Even those who are looking for an inexpensive mobile phone will find what they are looking for. As a user, you have to be prepared not to own the latest model. Nevertheless, you can find good devices that meet everyday requirements for relatively little money.

Samsung offers a small selection of smartphones that cost less than 300 euros. But you can also find affordable smartphones on offer from lesser-known manufacturers such as CUBOT.

Prime Day lasts a full 48 hours this year. Strictly speaking, one should rather speak of “Prime Days”. Originally, the discount campaign only took place on one day, which is why the term Prime Day has become established.

However, the online mail order company increased the campaign period to 28 hours last year. Amazon has been running the online discount campaign since 2015 and has presented more than a million special offers every year since then. The date has now also been published. Prime Day starts on July 12th and ends on July 13th, 2022.

There are many little tricks that online retailers use to persuade their customers to buy. Potential customers are put under pressure with countdowns running and supposed product shortages. Consumer advocates therefore advise finding out about the usual tricks of the dealers and not just strike because the price seems cheap.

Finding the right cell phone is not easy. If you want to buy a new smartphone, you should first think carefully about which requirements the device has to meet. Battery performance, camera quality, storage and screen size are aspects that should definitely be considered, because a bad buy could be expensive.

The battery performance is a very important point when buying a mobile phone. After all, who wants to hang their smartphone on the power cord all the time? Fortunately, there are now powerful power banks that can help in an emergency. However, they are not a substitute for a good battery.

How good should the camera be? Most mobile phone cameras are now at a technical level of at least 12 megapixels. They also have autofocus and optical image stabilization. However, it is advisable to test the camera yourself in an electronics store before buying it to see whether it meets your expectations. As a rule of thumb, it can be said that the more expensive smartphones also have the better cameras.

When it comes to storage, the question arises as to how many apps, photos and videos should be stored on the smartphone. A minimum of 32 GB storage space is currently the standard. If you want to take a lot of photos or film, you should choose a mobile phone with 64 GB or even 128 GB. Many providers also offer the option of expanding the memory with a memory card.

The next question is the correct display size. The display technology is now so advanced that an acceptable picture is delivered on mobile phones in all price ranges. Nevertheless, you should make sure that the resolution is at least Full HD with a size of 5 inches. This corresponds to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. With a lower pixel density, jaggedness can occur in fonts.
