Amazon has a smartphone program, and it's just added five more devices from brands like Nokia and Motorola.

With the Prime Exclusive Phones program, you can get mid-range to low-end smartphones at a discount. However, if you do choose to get a reduced, unlocked, contract-free smartphone through the program, Amazon will serve up adverts and offers on your lock screen. It's a very similar scheme to the one Amazon has with its e-readers and tablets - the Kindle with Special Offers program.

However, while tablet users have the option to remove adverts for a fee, Prime Exclusive Phones will always have adverts. Anyway, the new smartphones now available include the $179 Nokia 6 and $199 Moto E4. Amazon has also added the $199 Idol 5S, $99 A50, and $79 A30 Plus, all three of which are from Alcatel. Now, if you buy the phones elsewhere, you will be paying a higher premium.

The Nokia 6, for instance, costs $229. In our preview of the device, we said there's little about the Nokia 6 that makes it stand-out from other Android phones. However, it's a pure Android experience that follows many of the norms for smartphone design that we're seeing across the board. There's also a certain je ne sais quoi about Nokia's new handset. Perhaps it's nostalgia, or perhaps HMD got it right.

So, if you're looking for a budget Android, know that your choices through Prime Exclusive Phones have just doubled. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
