Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime 
Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime has been available at both T-Mobile and Metro PCS since April 2017. You can get one from Videotron today, TELUS tomorrow, or at Bell Mobility on October 26th. More carriers are likely follow in the near future.
Videotron is charging $199.95 to buy the phone outright, or it starts at $19.95 on a 2-year term. At TELUS it will cost $240 outright, or $0 down on a 2-year term.
Pretty reasonable price for a basic Android smartphone. It might not have a lot of internal storage space with 16GB built in, but a microSD card can expand your storage up to 256GB. It has all the basics you'd expect; LTE connectivity, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a simple 5MP main camera with HD video recording capabilities and a 2MP front-facing selfie camera. 

Key Features:

  • Sleek design and display - Comfortably fits in your hand and in your pocket, thanks to its slim design with no camera protrusion. The 2.5D glass display stretches right to the edge for a wide viewing experience and everything you watch looks stunning in vivid colour on a 5 HD screen.
  • Best at the basics - This device packs plenty of power despite its small package; a 2600mAh removable battery provide long lasting power all day.

  • Picture perfect moments - Never miss a moment with the camera. Photos turn out clear and bright, even in low light, thanks to a F/1.9 aperture. The quick launch feature is a fast and easy way to access the camera from any screen, allowing you to capture picture-perfect moments in high resolution.
