Only have around $200 and need a new smartphone? If you’re in the US and use T-mobile, Google Fi, Mint Mobile, Metro by TMO, AT&T, or Simple Mobile, this great deal on the OnePlus Nord N20 5G is the way to go. I was already impressed with the Nord N20 (opens in a new tab) at its retail price of $299, and this $70 offer off the already insane regular price makes it a no-brainer.

The OnePlus Nord N20 packs a Snapdragon 695 processor which is faster than most phones in this price range. While it’s not fast enough to play games like Fortnite well, it’s more than enough for many of our other favorite android games (opens in a new tab)and the OLED display on the front makes them all look better than any other phone you could get at this price.

If that’s not enough to convince you, maybe the camera will. The 64MP shooter on the back captures fantastic photos in almost any lighting condition, and low-light is surprisingly good for the price. Finally, OnePlus’ OxygenOS is packed with great features that will put a smile on your face every day, making it one hell of a deal on Black Friday.

If you’ve been looking for the best Android phone deal this Black Friday, you’ve just found it. The Pixel 6a is kind of less than $300 (opens in a new tab) despite packing those award-winning Pixel cameras, a Google Tensor processor, and a gorgeous OLED display that makes videos and games more impactful than ever.

The Google Pixel 6a (opens in a new tab) is already our favorite budget phone of the year, and now it’s sort of even After economical with this offer. It’s got this fantastic new Pixel design language that’s a huge upgrade over the insanely boring Pixel 4 and 5 series, and it’s also made of premium materials like glass and aluminum, not that plastic rubbish cheap like most phones in this price range.

Not only that, but it includes a Google Tensor processor inside with all the Google magic you expect. Magic Eraser, Google Assistant call screening, instant voice typing, car crash detection, and a host of other Pixel-exclusive features you’ll never want to be without.

While we’re still talking about Samsung deals, how about a deal on a phone that actually fits in your pocket or that little side pocket on a bag? I’m talking about Galaxy ZFlip 4 (opens in a new tab)of course that looks like a normal phone until you fold it in half. The days of the shell have returned. Rejoice!

Amazon has the Z Flip 4 for $230 off (opens in a new tab) the regular price, making it the best deal we’ve seen on the best foldable for most people since it launched in August.

Samsung’s internal discount of $150 off (opens in a new tab) the regular price of the Z Flip 4 isn’t as impressive as Amazon’s, but the company lets you trade in your old phone to upgrade to a Z Flip 4. That means you could get an extra $600 off the price of the phone, bringing up as little as $249 in pocket at the end of the day. Now that’s hard to pass up!

Two screens, a phone, and an incredible price are ready for you when you pick up a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 from Amazon this Black Friday! It’s my favorite phone of the year and it’s a complete paradigm shift thanks to the fact that it’s both a phone and a tablet in one suave package.

This Black Friday offer at Samsung takes an incredible turn $350 off (opens in a new tab) the price of Z-fold 4 (opens in a new tab). Even better, if you have a phone to trade in, you could get up to $1,000 worth of Additional savings on the phone, which means you can get a new Z Fold 4 direct from Samsung for just over $550. This is an incredible price for a device of this caliber.

If you need to unlock it and just want to buy from Amazon, you will still get $430 off (opens in a new tab) the normal price of the phone, which is great considering the high price of this thing. At this price, it’s like buying the high-end Galaxy S22 Ultra or iPhone 14 Pro and getting a tablet for free since you can unfold the device at any time and view all your content on a bigger screen.

Samsung is rolling out the One UI 5 update with Android 13, which adds even more features to a device that’s already teeming with them. It’s a power user’s dream, especially when you grab an S Pen to go with it. There’s nothing better than using the S Pen on that giant tablet-sized screen indoors, especially when you know you saved so much money on just one by buying it on Black Friday.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is Samsung’s best flagship phone of the year, and Black Friday makes it cheaper than ever! The Phantom White colorway is the cheapest of the four colorways available, at $851.52 (opens in a new tab). That’s a whopping $347 off the regular retail price of the phone!

Phantom Black is just a little more at $863.66 (opens in a new tab)while the other two colorways of the S22 Ultra – it’s Burgundy and Green – are just a bit more than that at $869.99 (opens in a new tab). But hey, it’s still $330 less than the normal price of the phone, which isn’t bad at all if I say so myself. That’s enough savings to buy one of the best galaxy s22 ultra cases (opens in a new tab) and that you still have plenty left over to save (or buy other Christmas or holiday gifts).

Whichever color you choose, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of our favorite phones of the year since it’s the reboot of the Galaxy Note series. It packs an S Pen into the body, a brilliant camera system capable of 100x zoom, and a powerful processor that will run even the most detailed games with ease. Plus, it has the brightest screen of any Android smartphone, making it easy to see even in direct sunlight.

Let’s start today with a great deal on Google’s latest flagship phones, specifically the Google Pixel 7. While $100 off isn’t close to the biggest discount we’ve seen today, it does place this phone at a very attractive price.

The Pixel 7 is a great phone with a unique and beautiful design, premium build, and cameras that get the best shot every time. Even if you have small children or fidgety pets who refuse to stay still for a photo, the Pixel 7 guarantees a clear shot with technologies like Face Unblur and motion capture modes.

At just $499, the Pixel 7 sits firmly at a mid-price point while still offering premium performance and features, along with the premium design I mentioned earlier. It’s a no-brainer for anyone who wants a premium smartphone without that premium price tag, especially when the unlocked purchase matters.
