Black Friday is finally here and you can get the smartphone you’ve been waiting for with a really good discount. Fortunately Verizon has really good deals for all popular smartphones on the market, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2, HTC One, HTC One Max, Motorola Moto X, LG G2, Motorola Droid Mini, Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra.
The other two major carriers also have great Black Friday deals and you can view them here: AT&T and Sprint.
We’re going to let you know what offers are available for each of the devices in the list above so you can make the right decision and take advantage of a good deal. The best deals we’ve found are on Amazon and you can see them below.
Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung’s flagship device is probably the best deal this Black Friday, being available for free ($ 0.01) with a two-year contract on Verizon. If you prefer to get it unlocked, then it’ll cost you $ 699.99, which isn’t such a good deal and we recommend you to pick it with a plan included.
The Galaxy S4 is one of the most powerful devices on the market right now and also a best-seller. It’s also one of our recommendations if you’re looking for a new smartphone. It comes with top-notch hardware, a plenitude of features and it’s going to receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update in just a few months.
Samsung Galaxy S3
Considering that the Galaxy S4 only costs 1 cent with a contract, it was obvious the Galaxy S3 couldn’t be more expensive. So if you want to stick with an older smartphone, you can also get it free, though we recommend you the S4, which comes with much better hardware, a lot of great features and it’s going to receive updates faster. This isn’t really the best Black Friday deal.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Note 3 is priced at $ 169.99 with a two-year contract and this is the best price you can get, considering the other major carriers have it priced at $ 219 and $ 249.
Galaxy Note 3 is Samsung’s latest phablet, which is really a beast in terms of hardware and it comes with more features than you can eat. It’s stylus also allows you to do a lot of stuff that other smartphones can’t. So if you can live with it’s ridiculous size, then this is the perfect smartphone for you. It’s 5.7″ 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 CPU and 3GB of RAM will allow you to do basically anything you want with it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
The Galaxy Note 2 is just about one year old, but is still a high-end smartphone, so if you’re not really into the latest hardware and software, then it’s a good pick for you, being $ 100 cheaper than the Galaxy Note 3. You can get it for $ 69.99 with a two-year plan for Verizon and you shouldn’t miss this Black Friday deal if you’re looking for a phablet.
HTC One is a bit outdated, but still a really good smartphone, being also one of the most beautiful ones, with its aluminium unibody. You can get it for just 1 cent with a Verizon plan and we consider it a pretty good deal, though we suggest you to pick the Galaxy S4 instead, which comes at the same and offers much better hardware and many more features.
HTC One Max
One Max is HTC’s take on the phablet market and they’ve done a good job with it. For Black Friday it’s available for $ 109.99 with Verizon’s plan and we consider it’s a good price for it’s specs and features. It also has basically the same design as HTC One, which makes it a really good-looking smartphone. It’s price is a bit steep while taking in consideration the other Black Friday deals, but it’s not a throw-away.
Motorola Moto X
Moto X has been build under Google’s supervision and this says a lot. It has some unique features that can make it a wonderful companion. It also looks really nice, has decent hardware and gets updated really fast, because it’s running on nearly-vanilla Android.
The Motorola Moto X will only cost you one cent if you can live with Verizon’s plan for two years.
LG G2 is the smartphone the Nexus 5 was inspired from and it’s a really interesting device, because it does pack really good hardware and features, all with a price tag of $ 0.01. Of course you’ll have to signup or Verizon’s two-years contract for this, but this smartphone is really worth it.
Our suggestion is to decide between the LG G2 and the Galaxy S4 for this Black Friday, because they are the most interesting smartphones of their size.
Motorola DROID MINI
The Droid Mini, as its name suggests, is the smallest member of Verizon’s family, with a 4.3-inch screen. But this doesn’t mean it’s features are also ‘mini’, as it comes with a 1.7Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10MP camera, 3G/4G and is running on Android 4.2.2
Motorola DROID MAXX
Motorola Droid Maxx is a high-end smartphone designed especially for those who need more battery juice. It’s a bit thicker than your usual smartphone, but it really compensates this in battery life. The Droid Maxx comes with the same specs as Droid Mini, though a bit higher price tag. It will cost you $ 69.99 with a two-year contract.
Motorola DROID ULTRA
The Droid Ultra has similar specs to the Mini and Maxx, though it has a 5-inch display with a 720×1280 pixels resolution and 2GB of RAM. It’s a really good smartphone and it’s priced at $ 19.99 with a two-year plan, though it’s not our Black Friday recommendation, considering that you can get the Galaxy S4 or LG G2 for free and they have much better specs.
