Amazon Canada is a popular destination for all the latest in technology and electronics, so it should come as no surprise that the mega retailer also has a huge selection of smartphones.
Unlike the major brand names in smartphone technology, Amazon is also home to some ultra-affordable devices. Many of them are just a fraction of the cost of other models, meaning you can score a high quality phone that doesn't break the bank.
The Blackview A55 Android Phone is just one example, and right now it's on sale for $119.

'Perfect for kids or seniors'
With its simple Android interface, the phone has been dubbed the "perfect phone for kids [or] seniors." Reviewers say that there "was no learning curve required," making it easy to set up and use right away.
