    Have friends who have deer and an occasional bear on their property. Looking for a camera that is compatible with a Verizon Samsung Android phone. Anything good up to $150? Thanks.

    I would not recommend a cellular camera at that price

    You lost me with the price. I have 5 Spartan gocams that I have for a long time. Two of them were from the first year they came out.

    This is where I recommend buying trail cameras they offer 2 year warranty on all cameras and their customer service is fantastic. The cellular one pictures is at your price and the other one is the camera I would recommend for that price range. They give detailed reviews. If your are set on a cellular at that price I’d buy that one from them but read the review and understand what your getting.
    The prices shown are shipped to your door with a 16 gb sd card. trailcampro.com

    Trailcampro is a good company. Bought several cameras from them. Price of the camera is only one part of camera expenses. See how much per month for you cell provider and the camera company cost. I spend 5 dollars a month per camera to Verizon and 3 dollars a month for Spartans premium app service that I can receive unlimited photos or videos. Yes 10 second videos.

    Thanks. My need for the cellular camera is placing it on private land that is not always accessible. Public land is an invitation to thieves.

    Tactacam has a new one out called the Reveal. They will be good if made by Tactacam. Hard to come by after they received an over the top number of orders the first day. I would not buy until you check these out.

    If you are looking at cell cams I would look at the stealthcam fusion and the new tactacam reveal. Both are in that price range and I have heard good things about both.

    I have two Reveal's and both are working well. At $99 they're a bargain - the cell plan is a bit pricy at $13 for the first and $12 each after that for unlimited.

    I hunt 5 different counties and have my farms covered with Tactacams ( new this year ) and Spypoints. I am putting them to the test cause I run them all year for the most part. SPYPOINT has supported me the entire journey, great technology and there customer service has improved dramatically. I have given them my input and they have made some changes in reference. My Dark Link cameras I love and have battery packs attached.
