This offer is an absolute STEAL

OnePlus 11 leaning on a plant pot

The OnePlus 11 already drew our attention with a small but appreciated discount last week, and we thought that was the end of it. How wrong we were. After dropping from an average price of £691 down to £640, the OnePlus 11 has been discounted even further, and this time by quite a bit more.

At just £466, this flagship phone is now ridiculously cheap. Seriously, it’s not even been out a year and we’re more than £200 off the average price? I doubt this one lasts long, so if you like the look of the phone – check out our five-star OnePlus 11 review for what we liked about it – definitely get in quick.

A Lite yet mighty Black Friday bargain

Want to save even more money on an Honor smartphone? The Lite version of the Honor 90 has also been reduced down to a low low price of £200.

And despite the £150 price difference, the Honor 90 Lite is still an astonishing smartphone. It has a strong main camera, great stamina and loads of internal storage with 256GB of space.

An Honor-able Black Friday bargain

Honor 90 reviewHere’s a solid pick if you’re after a handset off the beaten path. The Honor 90 sits among some of the best smartphones of 2023, and this deal is pretty darn good. It’s now going for just £350, so that’s £50 less than its average price.

We gave the Honor 90 four stars in our review earlier this year, and were impressed with the speedy performance delivered via the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. There are some caveats, of course, but at this price, you really can’t grumble too much.

ANOTHER budget smartphone for less than £100

One of our favourite super-cheap smartphones has also dropped in price.  It’s a great price too, at just £96 you can buy the Nokia C21 Plus, a phone which, while it does have its caveats, is a great little performer for how little it costs.

Get last year’s Samsung Galaxy A53 for less

How about a 2022 mid-range Samsung phone at a budget phone price? Sure, it’s been superseded, but last year’s Galaxy A53 is cheaper than ever at just £247. You can’t argue with that price.

Grab a Pixel 7 for only £393

Blimey, this is a deal worth waking up for. Google’s terrific Pixel 7, which we awarded a perfect five stars and a Best Buy award in our review last year, has dramatically dropped in price. Not at just £393, that’s a lovely saving of £116 compared to the average price.

Photography is the name of the game with the Pixel 7, which in 2023 still captures some of the best images around. It’s also running on a clean installation of Android, and we particularly enjoyed the colour-accurate 6.4in AMOLED display.

Pick up a smartphone for less than £100

The dirt-cheap Nokia C32 has not only dropped below £100, but also to its lowest price yet. Usually retailing for around £113, during Amazon’s Black Friday sales the C32 is now just £98.

Obviously, we praised the Nokia C32 for its affordable price in our review earlier this year, but we also liked its attractive design and colour options, as well as the inclusion of USB-C charging. Our only major complaint is performance, but for less than £100, you really can’t do any better.

Another cheap Moto bargain

Black Friday is usually awash with cheap Moto deals, and this is one of them worth buying. The Moto G53, which usually floats around the £169 mark, has dropped in price to £139. That’s the lowest we’ve seen so far.

Grab a 2022 iPhone 14 for cheaper than ever

If you don’t mind picking up a slightly older iPhone 14, but saving a load of money in the process, this deal is for you. Currently on sale for just £649, that’s a huge £200 off the original price and a tasty £100 saving compared to the average price.

How does the iPhone 14 hold up in 2023? Very well, as it turns out, with this year’s iPhone 15 only improving things ever-so slightly. The dual-camera array on the rear is still a massive highlight, and the performance is exceptional, especially at this discounted price.

A dirt-cheap iPhone SE contract

Sadly, the SIM-free iPhone SE deal listed yesterday is no longer available, but we have just spotted this crazy inexpensive contract deal over at Affordable Mobiles. For £23/mth and no upfront cost, you’re getting 100GB of data with Three. That’s a lifetime cost of just £552, which isn’t much more than the standard handset-only price.

A terrific deals Oppo-tunity

Despite originally saying the Oppo Find X5 Pro was on the pricey side, this Black Friday bargain has helped smooth things over. One of our favourite flagship handsets of last year, the Oppo Find X5 Pro is now only £595, down nearly £400 off the average price.

Fancy a cheap phone from last year?

Continuing the”cheaper than ever” trend, Google’s Pixel 7 Pro is currently priced at its lowest yet, now at just £656. That’s a drop of £81 compared to the average price. And it’s still a great phone in 2023, with an astonishing triple camera array and large colour-accurate display.

We’re back with more smartphone deals

Samsung Galaxy A34We’ve returned with loads of handset bargains. The first we’ve spotted today is a deal on the Samsung Galaxy A34, which has dropped to a bargain £249 in the Black Friday sales. Compared to an average price of £347, that’s a tasty saving of £98 and the cheapest it’s ever dropped to.

It’s a sensational Samsung smartphone, too. It has a large 6.6in 120Hz AMOLED display, with a main 48MP camera on the back (which works alongside a 5MP macro lens). In our hands-on, we also called it a “fantastically attractive phone” with its range of matte-finish mother-of-pearl-like colours.

A dreamy Pixel 7a deal

If you’re after a mid-range handset in the Black Friday sales, you can’t do much better than Google Pixel 7a. Up until this point, the Pixel 7a hadn’t received the deals treatment, but this first bargain is well worth jumping on to. At its cheapest price ever, you can pick up the Google Pixel 7a and a 30W charger for just £379. That’s an £87 saving compared to the average price.

The first iPhone SE deal we’ve spotted

Best Black Friday iPhone deals - iPhone SE 2022 in handIt’s not the biggest saving, but this is the first iPhone SE (2022) deal we’ve spotted so far this Black Friday. If you venture over to Argos you’ll find that Apple’s entry-level iPhone has dropped to £329, down from the usual £379 asking price.

The iPhone SE (2022) still holds its own in 2023 as well. For a great price, you’re getting a handset with fast performance and solid cameras squeezed inside a delightedly compact form factor. The only fly in the ointment is the battery life, which was pretty weak in our testing.

Nothing worth buying

The terrific Nothing Phone (1) is now cheaper than ever at only £299. Looking back at historical pricing, that’s £75 cheaper than the average price and is the cheapest by £22.

Our favourite mid-range smartphone of 2022, the Nothing Phone (1) is still a smashing pick for 2023. Its light show Glyph interface is a unique delight and it performs very well for the price as well. There’s no bloatware in sight, either, with a clean Android installation straight out of the box.

A budget Black Friday bargain

best Motorola phone - Motorola Moto G13If you’re in the market for the cheapest smartphone deal in the Black Friday sales, well, this is it. The already dirt cheap Motorola Moto G13 has had its price slashed, down to only £119. That’s a lovely 7% off the average price.

We awarded the Moto G13 a perfect five stars and a Best Buy award in our full review. We praised the budget handset for its stylish design and impressive battery life, with the inclusion of a headphone jack, dual SIM slot and expandable storage being other notable highlights. Our only real complaint was with the so-so camera, but for this price, you can’t really expect any different.
