The holiday season looks like a great time to buy a new phone, so we have prepared a list of the best Android phone deals for Black Friday. We focused mostly on this year’s new flagship devices, including the Google Pixel 3, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, LG V4 and OnePlus 6T.
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
If you trade in your current phone at Verizon, you can buy one of the Pixel 3 phones with a $100 or $300 discount. Either way, you’ll need to trade in your current phone to get the discount. [Link]
On Nov. 22 and 23, you can get $400 off if you buy the devices on a payment plan. This deal will be available mostly online and could apply to other devices too.
If you buy directly from Google, you can get an unlocked device to use on your carrier’s mobile network. If you buy one Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL, you can get another at half the price. The offer ends today, so make sure to check it out.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and S9
If you missed out on the Amazon deals on Samsung’s flagship phones from a few days ago, you can still get a discount on them. Walmart is offering savings on Samsung’s Galaxy S phones, although you’ll need to pay more up front. [Link]
Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (64 GB) for $640 — $200 off
Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 (64 GB) for $640 — $80 off
Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 (64 GB, black) for $450 — $150 off
Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (128 GB) for $800 — $200 off
Like with the Google Pixel 3, Verizon is offering $100 off when you upgrade from a previous model and $300 off if you switch to Verizon or add an additional service line. [Link]
T-Mobile’s best Android phone deals for Black Friday are a bit complicated. If you trade in your old device and add an additional service line to your plan, you can either get the Galaxy S9 for free or $750 off the Note 9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. The Galaxy S8 is also included in this promotion.
The best Android phone deals for Black Friday also include the LG V40 on the Sprint network. If you activate a new line with the LG V40 ($20 per month on the Sprint Flex plan), Sprint will also include a 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LD TV from LG, which normally costs $500. The TV arrives eight weeks after the online registration is approved. [Link]
You can also get up to $750 off the LG V40 ThinQ from T-Mobile.
T-Mobile is also offering one of the best Android phone deals for Black Friday. If you already have one or more contracts with T-Mobile, adding a new one and trading in your older phone can get you the OnePlus 6T for free.
