Posted: 26 November 2021 11:42 am

Whether you're after a cheap iPhone, discount Samsung Galaxy or just want a great value smartphone deal, we've got the best deals right here.

Black Friday sales can be a great time to update your smartphone as vendors vie for your buying dollar by cutting large amounts off the asking price of select smartphones. Here's our pick of the very best deals across all smartphones and retailers.

Prices correct at time of publication, but can change when Black Friday deals sell out or if retailers price match. We'll do our best to update but act fast to make sure you don't miss out!

Best Apple iPhone deals

Apple rarely gives retailers a lot of breathing space when it comes to cutting prices on iPhone handsets. Apple itself limits you to a $70 gift voucher with purchases of the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone SE. You can also score some huge discounts at eBay provided you don't mind buying a pre-2020 model. We've gathered a few highlights here.

Best Samsung Galaxy phone deals

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G impressed us at the start of 2021 thanks to its amazing screen, ability to work with Samsung's S-Pen stylus and great battery life. Samsung's really throwing down the gauntlet with one of the best deals you'll get on any smartphone this Black Friday, period, chopping a hefty $600 off the asking price of its flagship Galaxy S series handset.

Best Android phone deals

If you're after a new smartphone this Black Friday because you're, shall we say, a touch on the clumsy side, there's one option you really ought to consider. It's the Nokia XR20, a super-tough handset built to last with IP68 water resistance, toughened front screen glass and a robust rear case that can take plenty of life's knocks without shattering. We reviewed it here at its retail price of $879, but one can be yours for $698 through Amazon.

The Oppo Find X3 Pro is a very different Android flagship, thanks to the inclusion of a microscope camera. No, not a macro camera – this is a literal microscope that lets you take pictures of the world at an incredibly close-up level. You can read our full review of the Oppo Find X3 Pro here. For Black Friday 2021, Oppo's offering the Find X3 Pro at a serious discount from its regular retail price.

If you're a fan of Motorola phones, they're 20% off across the current range. Our pick there would be the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion, which we reviewed here. You can grab yourself a Motorola Edge 20 Fusion for just $400.19 through eBay Australia.

Google's latest smartphone is the Google Pixel 6, leveraging the power of Google's own Tensor processor and a multi-camera array to deliver a clean and simple Android interface with the promise of security and software updates for years to come. Google's Black Friday deal for the Pixel 6 doesn't cut the price of the phone itself, but it does offer you the opportunity to grab a set of Google Pixel Buds A for 50% off if you buy both at the same time.
