Washington: Amazon with another remarkable offer just at the beginning of 2014, as carrier is now offering Verizon, AT&T and Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 for a penny when signing new 2 year contract.

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 last year, it needed a smartphone that would be able to compete out of the gate with Apple’s flagship iPhone 5 and be powerful enough to stand up to its successor, the iPhone 5S, which was yet to launch at the time.

Samsung has certainly been able to keep up with its biggest rival and its Galaxy S4 is still the best-selling Android smartphone among all carriers.

The company not only loaded the Galaxy S4 up with advanced specs such as a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core processor and 13-megapixel camera, it also brought exclusive software features to the smartphone to make it truly stand out from the competition. Some of those features include Smart Scroll, which allows users to scroll web pages and emails by simply tilting the Galaxy S4 up or down. Air View is a cool feature that enables you to hover with your fingers to preview emails, images, or videos without ever having to touch or open an app. Air Gesture allows you to change the music track, scroll web pages, or accept a call with a wave of your hand.

Just for the reminder, the Samsung Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 full HD Super AMOLED display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, with a high pixel density of 441 pixels per inch (ppi). It ships with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean but can be upgraded to Android 4.3 out of the box via an OTA update (Android 4.4 KitKat is expected soon). The smartphone is powered by a fast 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM to provide a fast and fluid user experience.

The Galaxy S4 ships with 16GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot with support for up to 64GB microSD cards. The smartphone’s high-end 13-megapixel rear camera has auto flash, zero shutter lag and is able to record Full HD 1080p video at 30fps, and there is also a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The Galaxy S4′s wireless connectivity options consist of 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n//ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. The Galaxy S4 also sports an IR blaster that turns the device into a universal remote control with a dedicated program guide. The handset ships with a large 2,600 mAh removable battery.

You can order the Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 for $0.01 from Amazon when signing a new 2-year contract. The retailer is also including free two-day shipping with the order.
