There are a lot of ways to purchase a smartphone. Third-party retailers are well stocked, carrier retail stores have them, in most cases the manufacturers have their own stores and then there’s always the easy option of purchasing online. Amazon wants you to purchase your next Android smartphone through it, which is why it is offering 50GB of free Amazon Cloud Drive storage with purchase of select Android smartphones. These “select” smartphones include over 100 carrier branded devices. The list of devices easily includes almost all of the popular recent Android smartphones that have been released over the past few months.
It is very easy to avail this offer. Simply purchase the smartphone of your choice from Amazon, and wait for the free storage to appear, Amazon says it should appear within ten days of purchase. The free 50GB of cloud storage will be added on top of the 5GB that’s already provided for free with purchase of every smartphone. That’s a catch though. The free 50GB storage is only valid for one year. Amazon won’t delete your data immediately once the 12 months are over, however if you want to retain the storage, you will have to pay up or else you will have to make alternate arrangements for your data.
