A new phone is one of the most important purchases you’ll make. You probably use it more times each day than any other device, so you’ll want to pick one that’s just right. It’s easy to spend hours scouring the web looking for the best offers, but we’ve done the legwork for you. We’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best phone deals available to save you time and money.
We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now but we’ve thrown in some of the best carrier offers too. We’ve made note of the international devices as well, but make sure to check carefully before you buy.
Featured deal: Pick up the OnePlus 8 for $499
I love this phone. It’s my daily driver and I won’t hear a bad word said against it. The 8GB model of the OnePlus 8 is on offer today with a straight-up $200 discount. No hoops to jump through or combination purchases — just $499 ($200 off) for a stellar device.
The OnePlus 8 may not be a Pro or Plus model, but it’s no lightweight. This Snapdragon 865-powered phone carries over a lot of the allure of the larger OnePlus 8 Pro, with features such as a 90Hz display and rapid charging. Whether you run the screen set to 60Hz or 90Hz, you’re going to get world-class performance. The phone fared well on benchmarks, beating 99% of other devices in the databases of 3DMark, Geekbench, and GFXBench.

The 4,300mAh battery of the OnePlus 8 is just 4.6% lower capacity than the Pro version, and much larger than the 3,800mAh pack in the OnePlus 7T. It consistently pushed through a day and a half of normal use for us, and sometimes extended close to one and three-quarter days. A 6.78-inch AMOLED screen, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage complete the package.
The 12GB model is seeing the same $200 price drop, but it’s already sold out. Hit the widget below to avoid missing out altogether.
