Really solid mid-range phone that launched in August with specs on par with phones costing 2-3 times as much.

The G9 Pro features a 6.3" display, a 4,000mAh battery with wireless charging, Dual-SIM slots, and a rear fingerprint sensor. On the software side, the G9 Pro ships with Android 9 and a promised update to Android 10 in the future.

The G9 Pro has been on sale before, but the $179.99 price is the lowest yet. If you're in the market for an affordable phone that doesn't cut too many corners, this may be the device for you.

I sold Blu phones in my store for a little under a year in 2016. We had so many complaints and returns we just started ignoring the company when they tried to contact us to order more. Some people loved them but the failure rate was off the charts.

Faced with the same question. Ultimately opted for the G9 Pro. Not sure if I trust the mechanical pop up camera on a mid-range phone not to somehow fail if I keep this phone for 3 years. Also like that the G9 Pro has a 24 mp selfie camera. It's also cheaper.

Bold N1:
IPS LCD, but 1080p with 409 ppi. For the price I think it'll be great.

Bold N1 is $200 plus no tax if purchased from their website, effectively making it the same for the G9 on Amazon, right? Not sure if there's tax there.

So the cameras and battery are better on the G9, while the screen, CPU, and fingerprint reader on the N1.

Interesting toss-up. Both have great value for the money that they offer. I guess it comes down to what features are most important to you. I would be slightly concerned about the pop up cam over time, but for the price it's an interesting gamble.

I see the front page slickdeal on the LG V35 and also discovered the Xiaomi Mi 9T. So many good phones for $200-300. I don't know anymore lol

I thought the LG would work on AT&T as well? And yeah the Mi 9T is $300, but might be worth shelling out the extra $100

Good find. Bands 2 and 4 are the most important bands you'd need for TMobile thought. May see a slight decrease inside dense buildings but not by much.
