Good afternoon. How can I help you?
I would like to buy a new phone.
Great, you've come to the right place. Are you looking for anything in particular?
Yes, I would like a phone with a good camera and battery life.
We have a couple of different models that would fit that description. How much would you like to spend?
Between 200 and 300 dollars.
Would you like your phone to be unlocked or with a carrier?
Unlocked, please.
In this case we have three phones available.
What's the difference?
They are pretty similar. This one is a little more pricey but also has better battery life. The black one has more storage and the gray one is the cheapest.
I will take the first one then. Thank you.
