Contrary to popular belief, Samsung can be competitive in the low-cost Android scene when it sets its mind on it, with the Galaxy J3 (2016) acting as living proof both internationally and stateside.

Granted, it took a while for the low-end 5-incher to go wide on US shores, first seeing daylight on prepaid-specialized Sprint subsidiaries Boost and Virgin Mobile back in January, then going on sale in a GSM unlocked variation a couple of weeks ago, and now, finally reaching Verizon at its lowest price yet.

Even better, Big Red sells an Android 6.0 Marshmallow-powered model for $110 on prepaid plans, with 4G LTE connectivity on deck, as well as a respectable 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, and 1.5GB RAM.

If that sounds almost too cheap to be true, it’s worth pointing out not all specifications are quite so hot, with a 2,600 mAh battery, 5 and 2MP cameras, and 8GB internal storage making the whole thing feel mutually beneficial for the end user and device manufacturer.

And let’s not forget the CDMA carrier, which will be followed by GSM rival AT&T later today to the J3 (2016) expansion party. Only Ma Bell intends to charge a little extra on Next installment plans – 30 times $5.67 for a grand total of $170. Worse yet, the AT&T-locked Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) shall run aging 5.1 Lollipop out the box.
