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

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

If that’s not enough to convince you, maybe the camera will. The 64MP shooter on the back takes great pictures in almost any lighting conditions, and the low light is surprisingly good for the price. Finally, OnePlus’ OxygenOS is packed to the brim with great features that will make you smile every day, making this a great deal on Black Friday.

If you were looking for the very best Android phone deal this Black Friday, you just found it. The Pixel 6a is somehow less than $300 (opens in new tab) despite featuring the award-winning Pixel cameras, a Google Tensor processor and a beautiful OLED display that makes videos and games look as punchy as ever.

Google Pixel 6a (opens in new tab) is already this year’s favorite budget-friendly phone, and now it’s somehow equal more budget friendly with this deal. It’s got the great new Pixel design language that’s a huge upgrade over the incredibly boring Pixel 4 and 5 series, and it’s also made from premium materials like glass and aluminum, not cheap plastic junk like most phones in this price range user.

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

While we’re still talking about Samsung deals, how about a deal on a phone that actually fits in your pocket or the small side pocket of a bag? I’m talking about the Galaxy Z Flip 4 (opens in new tab)of course, which looks like a normal phone until you fold it in half. The clamshell days are back. Look forward to!

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

Samsung internal rebate of $150 off (opens in new tab) the regular price of the Z Flip 4 isn’t as impressive as Amazon’s, but the company allows you to trade in your old phone to upgrade to a Z Flip 4. That means you can get another $600 off the phone’s price , bringing it down to as little as $249 out of pocket by the end of the day. Now it’s hard not to!

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

This Black Friday deal at Samsung offers an incredible $350 off (opens in new tab) the price of the Z Fold 4 (opens in new tab). Best of all, if you have a phone to trade in, you can get up to $1,000 off additional savings on the phone, meaning you can get a new Z Fold 4 direct from Samsung for just over $550. That’s an unheard of price for a device of this caliber.

If you need it unlocked and just want to buy from Amazon, you still get $430 off (opens in new tab) the normal price of the phone, which is great considering how damn expensive this thing usually is. At this price, it’s like buying the best Galaxy S22 Ultra or iPhone 14 Pro and getting a tablet for free, since you can always unfold the device and see 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 already teeming with them. It’s a power user’s dream, especially when you bring an S Pen to it. There’s nothing quite like using the S Pen on the giant tablet-sized screen inside, especially when you know you saved so much money on one just 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 we’ve ever seen! The Phantom White colorway is the cheapest of the four colors available, coming in at $851.52 (opens in new tab). That’s a whopping $347 off the phone’s regular retail price!

The Phantom Black is just a bit more at $863.66 (opens in new tab)while the other two color variants of the S22 Ultra – that’s Burgundy and Green – are only slightly more than that at $869.99 (opens in new tab). But hey, that’s still $330 off the regular price of the phone, which isn’t half bad if I do say so myself. That’s enough savings to pick up one of the best Galaxy S22 Ultra cases (opens in new tab) and still have plenty left over to stock up (or pick up other Christmas or holiday gifts).

Whichever color you choose, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is one of our favorite phones of the year as it’s the reboot of the Galaxy Note series. It packs an S Pen into its body, a brilliant camera system capable of 100x zoom, and a powerful processor that can run even the most detailed games with ease. Additionally, it has the brightest display 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 anywhere near the steepest discount we’ve seen yet today, it puts this phone at a very compelling price .

Pixel 7 is an excellent phone with a unique and beautiful design, first-class construction and cameras that get the best picture every time. Even if you have squirmy little kids or pets that just refuse to hold still for a picture, the Pixel 7 ensures a clear picture with technologies like Face Unblur and motion capture modes.

At just $499, the Pixel 7 sits firmly at a mid-range price point, but offers premium performance and features, as well as the premium design I mentioned earlier. It’s easy for anyone who wants a high-end smartphone without the high price, especially when buying unlocked is important.
