Is There a Better Time For a New Phone Than Black Friday?
Everyone needs a cell phone these days. It allows you to stay connected with your friends, access the internet if you need it, and protect you during emergency situations. Quite simply, our cell phones connect us to the world and many people feel troubled if they have to go without theirs. The problem of course is that phones can break. This is made worse because phones are also quite expensive.
This is why both Cyber Monday and Black Friday are a great time to get a phone. The sheer amount of sales that are available means that you can usually get the phone you want at a price that is close to what you’re willing to pay. Smart shoppers know that they need to take advantage of sales to get the best deals, and cell phones are really no different.
Tips for Black Friday
When you’re Black Friday shopping, there are going to be a lot of offers out there. It’s important when you’re choosing a phone to ensure you know which phone you want before the day comes along. If there’s a few phones you’re willing to accept, then you can diversify your options as well.
As soon as the deals start to come out, check out who is offering the phone you want. While the manufacturer may be one company, many retailers and big box sellers will likely also offer the phone on sale.
Another consideration may be to look at different telecommunications providers. They love to let you pay off a phone while you’re locked into a contract with them. However, Black Friday can often let you save money on not just the phone, but on your phone plan as well. This double savings works out really well and can save several hundred dollars over the course of a year.
Popular Phones To Look For
There’s quite a few different phones that can be picked up on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Some of the best ones to look out for include:
- Apple iPhone 13 - While some people like the larger Pro Max version, the iPhone 13 is
a nearly perfect version of the iPhone. It’s got a 6.1 inch display and excellent battery capacity. It’s also far more affordable. This can be even more of a benefit when it comes to Black Friday
- Samsung Galaxy S20 FE - This is the fan edition of the very popular Samsung Galaxy S20. It comes in multiple colors and it comes at a much happier price tag. There’s really only a single downside to this phone. It’s that it doesn’t feature as much RAM as some others. But the camera is fantastic and it feature Samsung quality.
- Google Pixel 5A - The Pixel series is already a discounted smartphone, but remains a great choice. Despite the lower price, it can still compete with many of the flagship models from other makers. Since it’s a Google phone, it has access to android updates immediately and the camera is shockingly good for something so inexpensive.
- OnePlus 9 Pro - If you want to stay away from Apple, Samsung and Google, then the One Plus is a great option. While certainly expensive, this flagship level of phone is less than other flagship phones. It has strong specs and charges quickly. Being a lower priced flagship from an alternative brand also means it can be the target of great deals on Cyber Monday and Black Friday.
