Amazon Cuts Price Of Smartphones In Exchange For Ads On Your Lockscreen

Amazon Phone Offer

Here’s an interesting deal from Amazon: the company is willing to cut prices on two phones provided customers allow ads on their lockscreen. The push isn’t new, as the company already does this for their Kindle devices but this is the first time the company is implementing the scheme on the phones.

Amazon is willing to cut the prices of both the BLU R1 HD and the Moto G4 to just $49.99and $149.99 respectively if customers allow the company to run unobtrusive ads on the lockscreen. There’s also pre-installed bloatware on the two phones if customers do decide to go this route, which can probably be fixed by rooting the phone.

The big question now is: are you willing to run ads on your phone to reduce the overall sticker price of the device you want? If a company like Lazada does the same thing here, would you be willing to get ads for their special deals for a price reduction on your dream phone? Let us know in the comments below.
